Returning to Work from Maternity Leave and Depression at One Year Post Partum.

I have decided, in 2018, to dip my toes into the waters of writing about spiritual / psychic development.  It feels slightly risky. It is done with more than a little bit of trepidation, as in many ways, this has been a private topic for me as it was every female in my family before… Continue reading Post-Partum Spiritual Development (in Your 30s) – What is Synchronicity and What to do When it Happens To You.

Becoming Psychic After Having a Baby: Spiritual Development in Your 30s. Part 1

  I struggled with how to title this post tonight, because it is written for other mamas like me, who are finding themselves more 'aware' of things that, to this point, have not been well explained by science. I also debated the title of this post because I am not 100% sure that my spiritual… Continue reading Becoming Psychic After Having a Baby: Spiritual Development in Your 30s. Part 1
