By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes…

By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes…

At the start of the famous scene in Macbeth (Act 4, Scene 1), one of the witches exclaims that ‘by the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes…’ as Macbeth approaches.  What does that mean and how did she know that Macbeth had recently committed a wicked deed? The origin of this phrase was an old superstition, that numbness of the little finger and twitching of the thumb in the left hand meant that something bad was on its way.  We might think this is a silly superstition but there is more to it than we realise.  When...

The 3 ‘Chambers’ of the Heart Chakra – Part 1: The Left Heart

We're back with our Summer Sale!

We've been rather quiet of late but now we're back!  As you know it's been a while since I posted in this Journal.  There were lots of family issues to sort out and then I took some time to rest and reflect.  It's good to sort out what your priorities in life are once in a while and spend sometime reconnecting with yourself and with life generally.  I know it sounds like a bit of a luxury and a cliche but I have to repeat how important self-care is these days.
