Mystical Adventures

Lists and plans, plans and lists… every January the same thing and this year more than ever. As part of my year of mystical thinking, I’m now just making resolutions (and immediately breaking them), I’m planning 12 different mystical adventures…one each month for the whole of 2018. Some of these adventures are things I’ve always wanted to do or learn but never had/made the time. Some are things I never thought I’d try but intend to in the spirit of this project. Others are about exploring things I already know, use and love – my love affair with tarot, astrology and crystals is LONG TERM – but on a deeper level. I’m planning to write about it all here in what I hope will be a readable mix of open-minded exploration and journalistic analysis. You can take the lifestyle writer out of magazines and all that…

So, here’s the list. I’ve already ticked off the first (post to come, update: here) and can’t wait to get stuck in to the rest. If we’re friends IRL and you’ve ever expressed an interest in the spiritual realm, brace yourself for a call to action. Who needs cocktails and sushi when you can lie down in a darkened room and meditate, right? Oh, and if I’ve missed something you think I really should try let me know. Scroll on for my Mystical To Do List. There’s more than 12 possibilities but I’m sure the universe will narrow it down. Find me over on instagram here.
