Mythical Unicorn

UnicornIf you are active on social media sites, you will no doubt realise that there has been something of a ‘unicorn fever’ building. From unicorn toast, to unicorn cakes, unicorn hair to unicorn nails… The current unicorn trends feature magical rainbows of pastel colours with a heavy sprinkling of glitter…

No doubt in the next few months for children the delight in unicorns will only grow further with movies like ‘Despicable Me 3’, featuring Agnes and her quest to find a real unicorn. The movie suggests that only those ‘pure of heart’ will see one… And for any adults that see the movie they will surely like the line “Life is like that, honey. You expect a unicorn but you get a one-horned goat.”

Mythical Animal

Although the unicorn is seeing resurgence in popularity the reality is that it has been a long revered mythical creature.

Often in pagan religions the unicorn is associated with or thought to belong to the moon goddess. It is depicted as looking like a white horse, but with a single horn protruding from the centre of its forehead. Its magical healing abilities were believed to derive from the horn.

The unicorn is long associated with purity, and it is believed that only those with an honest heart could tame it. (more…)

Monique, PIN: 2321

GE DIGITAL CAMERAHi, I’m Monique and I’d like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me and what I do when I have some ‘me time’.

I am a clairvoyant; I have experienced and enjoyed many readings and feel really enlightened and uplifted after each and every unique connection, however, there are times when I need to re-charge and re-energise (as we all do). I’d like to share with you a few things that I do to relax:

Number one is a real passion of mine, candles! I love them! I find the atmosphere of a room can be completely transformed, (more…)

The Wonder of Reindeer

ReindeerWhen we think about Christmas many of us will conger up the image of reindeers flying through the sky whilst pulling a sleigh full of presents with Santa Clause onboard and the below extract from a famous poem by Clement Clarke Moore, sometimes called A Visit from Saint Nicholas or The Night Before Christmas supports that image.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be Saint Nick. (more…)

Seasonal Foods in December

ChestnutsChestnuts

Chestnuts (not to be confused with horse chestnuts or conkers) are a versatile nut that now are conveniently packaged so that you can buy them dried, vacuum packed, puréed or ground ready to cook with and add to recipes. At Christmas time probably the nicest way to have them is roasted, 20 minutes in a hot oven is all it takes. If you purchase the whole nuts look for smooth shiny plump ones. Chestnuts have lower levels of protein and fats than most nuts, 100g contains just 3 grams of fat and 170 calories against 64g of fat in hazelnuts and 600 calories in most nuts, but they are higher in carbohydrates.

Christmas Tree & Mistletoe

Christmas TreesChristmas Tree Origins

In the 8th Century St Boniface felled an oak (at the same time as felling paganism) and a fir tree grew from under which was dedicated to Christ.

The festival of Yule among amongst Norse people focused on the endurance of Fir, Holly, and Pine Trees and other evergreens. Today it is still Fir, Pine and Spruce trees that are commonly taken into our homes to adorn as Christmas trees with shimmer decorations that encourage the light. (more…)

Saving Mr Banks

Saving Mr Banks PromoSaving Mr Banks is a film about Walt Disney’s pursuit of the film rights to the novel ‘Mary Poppins’ written by P.L Travers. Tom Hanks plays the role of legend Walt Disney; incidentally this is the first time that Disney has been depicted in a dramatic film. Emma Thompson plays the role of the novelist P.L Travers, the film documents their testy partnership during the projects pre-production in 1961.

Disney promised his daughters that he would make Mary Poppins in to a movie, not realising it would take 20 years to realise the dream. Travers proved to be very prickly and demanded contractual script and character control, this proved to be very difficult for both Disney’s idea of the film adaptation but also those in the creative team – Screenwriter Don DaGradi and the composers – brothers Richard and Robert Sherman. During the visit she was played songs by the Sherman brothers, which ended up in the 1964 film, such as A Spoonful of Sugar and Let’s Go Fly a Kite. Their original score and song (Chim-Chim-Cher-ee) won Oscars® at the 1965 ceremony (the film won five awards of its thirteen nominations). Saving Mr Banks has been directed by John Lee Hancock and the film is already being tipped for Oscar success. It is released in UK cinemas from 29th November 2013. (more…)

The Book of Life

The Book of LifeThe Book of Life is sometimes called the Akashic Records, Akashic taking on the Sanskrit meaning of the fundamental etheric substance of the universe. Theosophy describes the Book of Life as containing extrasensory information that exists in another dimension, more simply put – a cosmic library!

Imagine a space that contains row upon rows of books, of every type you can imagine – some beautiful scrolls, coloured pages, some charred around the edges as if rescued from fires, some embossed with gold leaf pages and others so delicate due to their age…All containing the secrets of world events, all deeds that have taken place for each and every inhabitant and everything that will take place in the future. Essentially DNA of the universe gathered together as human experience that can only be accessed by adepts. (more…)

The Day of the Doctor – BBC’s 50th Anniversary Episode

Dr Who PosterBBC’s Special 50th Anniversary Dr Who Episode – 23rd November 2013

There is much buzz surrounding the 50th anniversary episode of Dr Who titled The Day of the Doctor, certain details have been released, but they are desperately trying to keep the story under wraps. So much so that the special will be broadcast around the world at the same time; it will be the biggest simulcast in history! British viewers will be able to watch the episode in many cinemas in the UK in 3D.

Much to the disgust of die-hard fans, American fans have seen a special sneak peak trailer that was shown at the San Diego Comic-Con. Steven Moffatt (writer and producer) has claimed that he has ‘lied until his pants burned’, in order to keep the true story a secret, so it’s possible it could all be different to what we believe so far… (more…)

Meet Our New Psychic Reader – Dayity, PIN: 1001

DayityPersonal Story:

Firstly I would like to thank everyone who I have read for allowing me in to their lives and a big big thank you for all of you that have written feedback on the website.

I am 53 years old, living in a place that is called ‘Robin Hood Country’, I am married to the most wonderful man who is kind, caring and intrigued with the work I do. I have 9 children. 6 boys and 3 girls all age ranging from 12 – 35 years old, not to mention 3 beautiful grandchildren.

I have loved every minute of being a mum, watching my children grow, but it hasn’t always been like that. 19 years ago my son (who was a 2 year old at the time) started demonstrating bizarre mannerisms; it was as though time started to stand still for him. A year later after numerous hospital appointments, I was told my son was autistic, but it didn’t stop there they told me he was profoundly autistic. My little boy was never going to grow up in the way his peers would, he would never have a job, partner or children. Within hours my life fell apart. I remember crying, just holding him. After a few months, I began to prove people wrong. They would tell me I wouldn’t be able to potty train him. I trained him when he was three. They said he wouldn’t be able to talk, after a while he started to talk. It was such an amazing feeling. (more…)
