March 24, 2014By Zellie

Flying arcs of elegance, colour and beauty – that’s what I think when I watch butterflies glide graciously through the garden. On the outside they may seem timid because of their beautiful paper-thin wings, but butterflies are quite something else. They made their first appearance on Mother Earth around 40-50 million years ago and during … Read More

Not Sure How To Let Go?

Not Sure How To Let Go?

March 14, 2014By Zellie

Step Out And Get Soaked Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to let go of the strong emotions that can keep us from moving forward in our lives. For me feelings like guilt and worry carry quite a bit of weight, so heavy I can’t simply just jiggle my shoulders and let them fall to the … Read More

So Excited, She Can’t Keep Her suitcase Shut

I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o’er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Daffodils by William Wordsworth Yesterday as I sunnily skipped through the park, wrapped in my own … Read More

As February is our month of being Eco-warriors, I would like to share with you the book of Farmageddon.

UBUNTU – A bond of sharing that connects all humanity

UBUNTU – A bond of sharing that connects all humanity

February 12, 2014By Zellie

Ubuntu is a beautiful word from South Africa. It’s used to give voice to a bond that we share with each other, a connection between all humanity. Literally it means “Human Kindness”, but each family in Africa has their own interpretation of the word. One that has had the biggest impact on my heart is … Read More

Wiring Ourselves Back Into Our Connection With Nature

February 6, 2014By Zellie

When I walk on the beach, my feet make footprints that usually stay in the sand for only a few moments before the waves arrive to sweep them away. As they disappear, I’m reminded that I only have a temporary guest pass to enjoy this beautiful planet. Becoming Aware My pass is a reminder that … Read More

Fighting For Your Dream: Believe It And Protect It

January 19, 2014By Zellie

Many of us would have started 2014 promising ourselves a Mary Poppins bag full of things. A mix of resolutions that represent our hopes and dreams for the coming months or years. This year I have decided not to focus on the physical resolutions I normally make, such as getting fit. Instead I have promised … Read More

Eagles were born to fly!

Eagles were born to fly!

December 2, 2013By Zellie

Yesterday, as Mother Sun was creeping slowly down the horizon I went for a walk to say ‘goodnight’ to the birds and smell the damp change of the leaves into burnt oranges and reds. I was quiet and tried to listen to everything the birds were saying to each other, sneaking past the evening joggers and dogs … Read More

Let Those Idea Seeds in To Help You on Your Path of Change

November 28, 2013By Zellie

My dearest Bhoomie friends, last month I shared my story of the running seed that grew into a little shoot of change, and how its sparkle soon grew legs and wings that carried me onto a journey I had never thought I would be on. Today I want to share a bit more of that … Read More
