Structure vs control

I was talking with a good friend of mine today about how much we both like to have control in our day to day lives. I am a very organized person, and nothing brings me more joy than planning my schedule (in my green diary) and setting my goals (in my pink diary) for the coming week, every Sunday evening.

To some people this might sound excessive, and to be honest, maybe it is. But I’m currently juggling 7 different teaching positions, my coaching business and being a dog mumma (as well as the usual exercise and social life obligations).

Now I’m not saying this to brag. I’m busy, you’re busy, everyone is busy. And actually, we all have a different idea of what busy looks like for us personally, and what our optimal output is.

But we need to be mindful that structure is healthy and useful, but control can be potentially damaging, There is a fine line between being a control freak and becoming obsessive. If we cross that line then it is difficult for us to cope when things get in the way of our plans.

Plans change, they always do; that’s life! We need to ensure we are organized but also flexible, so we can take these bumps in the road in our stride.

Are you a control freak? Or do you need more organisation in your life?

Can you run from grief?

Can you run from grief?

The short answer is, no.

There is one thing for certain: We all inevitably die one day. And some of us are faced with the reality of death earlier than others. Each person experience numerous losses throughout their lives. The emotional response to that grief and the subsequent action taken are individual and very much influenced by where that person is in his/her life.

My father was first diagnosed with cancer in 2012 when I was 20 years old. It turned my entire world upside down. My family was in a state of shock trying to wrap our heads around the devastating news. Until that point, I always thought of cancer as something that affects other people, something that happens in other families. You know, heart-breaking stories on the news and the radio, not something you have to come to terms with.

My dad had throat cancer and had his voice box removed, which put him in remission fairly quickly. We actually thought it was over; the battle won. But 2 years later, it came back with a vengeance. In the words of John Green from A Fault in Our Stars: He “lit up like a Christmas tree.” After suffering a seizure at work, my dad was taken to hospital where tests showed that the cancer had spread to his brain and both lungs. The prognosis wasn’t good. We spent months in and out of hospitals, sitting with him while he had chemo and trying to make the time he had left as comfortable as possible.

On 10 February 2016 my dad took his last breath, at home, in a quiet village in the South West of England. It took me a few hours of shock before it sank in and I started to cry; then the crying wouldn’t stop. I resorted to alcohol to numb the pain. For anyone who has lost a parent you will understand the feeling. It’s like half of you has died. I wasn’t very close to my dad, due to him being an alcoholic, but I had a happy childhood and fond memories growing up.

I don’t know what first sparked the impulse. All I wanted to do was run – physically run from my grief, as far away from my hometown as possible. So that’s what I did. At this point I was 23, and I hadn’t left England since I was 13. I took a number of short trips to Spain and within the UK before venturing further afield to India the following year.

I enrolled in an Ancient and Holistic Psychology programme in Bangalore and Mysore. I was working in the mental health sector as a support worker and studying for my Psychology degree with the Open University. I had recently started yoga and this felt like something I wanted to explore further.

I still have vivid memories of that trip and the wonder and awe I felt while exploring the south of India. Everything was so strange, the food was so spicy, the people so inquisitive, the poverty so blatant and in some parts, the caste system so obvious. When I visited the Mysore Palace I cried. Not only because of its beauty but also because I saw an elephant being beaten. At that time, I was suffering from severe anxiety, something that has been present all my life. My dad’s illness and death exacerbated the anxiety. To top it off, I was having an identity crisis, and I didn’t know who I was or what the point of my life was.

Going to India was a turning point. It was like I had been living with my eyes closed and finally they were starting to open. Seeing people who live their lives in such a drastically different way than my life in the UK, truly broadened my mind, increased my awareness of and gratitude for life.

I had a conversation with a girl from London on the placement whose name I unfortunately cannot remember. She had recently converted to Islam. That’s when my interest in the psychology of religion piqued. I wasn’t brought up with religious beliefs as such, so I was intrigued to find out what makes someone choose to be religious. She told me people need something bigger to believe in, to help them wrap their head around things such as grief and poverty. Suddenly the penny dropped and it all made sense to me. The reason I was so depressed about my dad dying was because of my Western belief system, that when someone dies that’s it; they are gone. What if there was something more?

Fast forward to present day. I’m writing this in a coffee shop in Hanoi, overlooking the beautiful Westlake on a warm autumn day. In February 2021 it will be five years since my dad passed away. In those five years I have travelled to eight countries, I volunteered in Sri Lanka for four months helping people with mental illness and nearly one year ago I quit my corporate job to move to Vietnam.

I can honestly say that losing my dad has helped me to develop and understand myself in so many ways. My dad loved to travel so I know he would be proud of me. Of course I miss him, and I wish cancer hadn’t taken him so soon. But everything in life happens for a reason. And in my grief, I managed to find my passion in life, for travelling and for helping people.

Vocational Analysis


An introduction to the most reliable astrological process ever devised that is specifically curated for identifying one’s vocation. Have you ever asked yourself, "what is my calling in life?" Does the prospect of job vagaries make glum? Are you finally where you aimed to be professionally, but now questioning everything, including the path you chose to take?

Target audience

Candidates often are undergoing their first or second Saturn Return, or perhaps are in college.


Save time and anguish by zeroing in on a direction that is most fitting and suitable for your natural aptitudes and interests. Done well clients realize the potential of a Vocational Analysis when the work life aligns with life's goals, and ultimately leads to fulfilment (The Midheaven). Alignment seems to be the key, to discover and attend to whatever the spirit finds agreeable, natural, and for the most part, generates well-being.


15 minutes: this is not a full session, but only one small sidebar to a comprehensive consultation.

Other comments

The Midheaven Extension Process is remarkably reliable, but no process is foolproof. Many non-astrological variables are at play to either affirm or deny individual life direction. Still, with over an 80% success rate most people find incredible value in this service.

(En Español) The Healing: No labels, just White Light


A treatment feels like a wonderful White Light flowing around you. With an energy healing you will bring balance to your body, your emotions, your mind and spirit, and your feelings of tranquility and inner peace will be amplified. By improving balance in your life, you will improve your focus, well-being, and happiness. When we find the sentimental sources that cause physical pain, we usually eliminate the pain.

You can request a healing for yourself, for a family member, a pet, or a place or object. I can send White Light to negative moments in the past (in this life or past lives), for better results in a present situation or for protection.

The Healing focuses on: * All your living areas. * Your body, mind, spirit. * Past Lifes, and Karma (cord cutting) * Bringing positive past moments to the present.

I will send you the healing when your Guides or your Higher Self consider that you are more receptive, and then we will connect for a few minutes by video and I will explain to you how the healing went, and if your Guides have anything to explain to you.

Divine protection: 40 day Blueprint and opening of 12 timelines

During the session, you will receive the blueprint for 40 days and I will open 12 timelines for you.

Blueprint with Oronos® according to Natara®:

  • The blueprint protects you against 3G, 4G, 5G, WIFI, Bluebeam, MK Ultra, mind control, attack from lower frequency beings, and atomatic energies.

  • It speeds up your personal development. Part of your soulbook is opened with the blueprint. It brings divine order into your life.

  • With being reconnected to your blueprint in the quantum field clarity and peace start becoming more and more reality in your life.

  • The blueprint is divine love energy.


A timeline is like an energy portal. When a timeline of the future is opened then old timelines (like suffering, death, war, and destruction) are closed. A timeline is like an energy portal, an opening of a new consciousness. They are also accelerators and amplifiers for your life. The timelines will stay open in your life as long as they are needed. With the opened timelines of the future you can start living a life filled with joy, laughter, happiness and abundance.
