About Me:
I am originally from Baltimore, MD, USA but I now live on the Northeast coast of England, near Newcastle-upon-Tyne. I love it here, I love living near the sea, in all its seasons.
I live with my partner of 4 years, Susan, and our little black cat Marcel. He's more of a familiar than a pet really, and I adore him so much its embarrassing.
We live in a house painted in creams and jewel colours (magenta, sapphire, and summer green) and decorated with paintings and ornaments we get from Tynemouth market and from our travels. Lots of gods and goddesses - Ganesha, Lakshmi, Moon Gazing Hares, Kwan Yin, and my favourite painting of the Goddess of Avalon which we picked up in Glastonbury. I am really proud to have helped create such a lovely home - its makes me feel happy to be surrounded by beauty :-)
Su and I have been approved to be full-time foster carers. We don't have a child in placement yet, read my blog to hear how that is going. I'm so looking forward to my future working with children.
Last year I completed a Crystal Healing diploma and one of the best benefits is in developing my intuition and ability to sense energy. I hope to use it in my work in the future, because I love doing it so much.
I love travelling, even to different parts of this country, and seeing different places. Each place has a different energy - the Lake District, for example, gives me the feeling of standing in a cleansing waterfall. Probably why I like living near the beach, a walk by the sea dissolves away all the icky energy I may have picked up in my day job!
Season 4
Starting Date:
January 4, 2011
Intentions & Goals:
I always like to start these things at the New Moon
In my last season I asked 'what was I born to do?' because I was really confused. Well I found it! My partner and I have been approved as full time foster carers, and we're preparing to share our lives with and give a loving home to children. So I'm intending for exactly the right child or children to come and live with us, in a situation that benefits all of us.
As of writing two children have been matched with us but there are delays to do with local council politics and money. If it's the right thing, I'm intending that the children will come to live with us at the perfect time.
Spend more time outdoors walking and having picnics
To love and accept every part of myself, without exception, even my disowned 'shadow' selves. To let go of criticising myself and others.
To open my life to adorable new people, who are creative, interesting, wise, loving and fun.
For my income to always be increasing, as I fill my life with work that I love to do and which utterly fulfills me I am rewarded with more money than I can spend.
For time and inspiration to do creative things, to finish my painting, make some jewellery, and start other projects that have been in my mind.

We Did It! We're Foster Parents Now

Posted on August 3, 2011 at 8:30am 2 Comments

Hey everyone, we did it!!!  Me and my partner are foster parents to a delightful, mischevious, clever, funny and beautiful little 10 year old girl.  Needless to say, since she movedin with us in June, I haven't had much time to blog...


It's been a helluva journey.  In May she (I'll call her T for confidentiality)was coming for visits 3-4 times a week for 6 weeks until her moving day.  She's lived with other families who couldn't manage her, so the social workers wanted to…


Foster caring saga- disappointment and hope

Posted on March 22, 2011 at 9:41am 0 Comments

Today is day 78.

At the start of this season we had been told by social workers that we were certain to be placed with two children- brother and sister, who needed a family. They were with an older (60ish) foster carer and their social worker hinted that he didn't feel this carer was meeting the kids' needs. By the time the youngest was a teenager the carer would be in her 70s. So I was thinking this was almost certainly going to happen.

Well I was wrong- in the end the panel decided… Continue

Day 100 A New Sense of Freedom

Posted on November 6, 2010 at 6:50am 5 Comments

Hi Everyone!!!!

Yesterday was my day 100 and I'm so happy to post - I did it! I found a wonderful new direction in my life, I'm moving there full steam ahead, and the ironic thing is, it was staring me in the face the entire time. I asked the Universe 'What was I born to do?' and for a new job or project that would make my soul sing and provide me with a good income. I'm going to become a full-time foster carer! We just had our panel interview on Day 98, and were approved with…


Day 28 What I've done so far and a message from a Scottish psychic

Posted on August 25, 2010 at 4:26am 1 Comment

I started my Season 3 28 days ago - here is what I've been up to:

I'm really into Flower Essences, and Crystal Healing. I think there is so much potential in vibrational healing and I'm very exited about what I am learning. Over three years ago I was at a 'Psychic Evening' at my local pub and the speaker/ psychic turned to me and told me that I've come here with a very spiritually-oriented purpose to acheive and my guides want to just shake me sometimes because I was resisting…


Day 100 and bringing love into the world

Posted on March 14, 2010 at 2:41pm 0 Comments

OK so my Day 100 was Feb 19th!

I haven't had much time to blog but that's a positive thing. I want to try and summarize what wonderful blessings and insights Season 1 has brought to me.

When I first began my main focus day to day was money. I wanted to bring more in to my life so that I didn't have the 'week before payday' blues, so that basically I didn't have to worry about spending.

Instead I learned about love and friendship. I think that is…

Happy Birthday Claudia, Blessings Jilly

Actually I thought what you said about the chocolate bunny is pretty funny. Blimey I rhyme now. Anyway, nothing wrong with being disturbed; it just means that you see life from a different, more interesting angle. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it...

Thanks for your wise words, Claudia, You've basically hit it on the head exactly what I'm feeling right now. It's very easy to get lost in that mindset that you spoke of, that you don't matter or have needs or wants. And I fell head long into that. These aren't actually bad people I work with. They were very quick to point out I should go home early, but never stopped to actually make sure I did just that.

We live in this stupid results driven culture. Perhaps I should've said enough is enough earlier on, but I didn't honestly feel I could, for fear of rebuke. Perhaps that's pride, I don't know. I got thrown in at the deep end when I took over my job. Basically learned most things myself.

It's typical of my mindset at the moment, that I'm worrying about stuff I didn't do when I was at work. Including some stuff which I said I'd done (which I'd planned to do) but hadn't. I was completely snowed under. I start thinking about have I cost them money? Was there something I should have done differently?

But then I remind myself about the fact I'm lucky to be here. None of the rest of the stuff should really matter besides that fact. That's why I need to get angry, to have the courage to say stuff this, I don't need this.

Anyway I've ordered the Helen Lerner book off Amazon and I've got a couple of Louise Hay books, so hopefully that's a good start...

Hi, Claudia.

Thanks for your lovely comments. Again, a good example of synchronicity. I was thinking as I wrote about the crystals that I wish of knew of someone who was knowledgable about them. Then you commented...

I'm interested in using crystals in the following areas to begin with. Firstly I've been suffering from low self-esteem and want to learn to love myself that much better. My confidence has also taken a dive, so another area to work on. Also I'm interesting in using them to promote peace of mind and clarity of thought.

This is very much a new area to me. I've bought them previously because they're lovely look at. But I've never delved into the fact that they can have a very practical use. Though I do use a clear quartz pendulum and have always had good results from that.

And when I've bought them, it's always because a piece has said, 'buy me.' They've chosen me, if that makes sense. Either way, I look forward to delving more into this as a subject. Once again, my thanks.

thank you Claudia. That`s true my friend Kandee told me that when you make changes in your life sometimes a bunch of negative stuff will pop up and try to make you feel bad and make you feel like all the changes and things you`ve been doing were for nothing. I can power through this I know it, it`s comment and people like you and Kandee who make others stronger and see that they HAVE accomplished alot. Thanks soo much and sending you love have a wonderful amazing day, Shaheen
