Spiritual lifestyle advice and guidance for modern women from bestselling author Alice Grist.
If you have been following my career you will know I wrote two spiritually inclined books. Then, kinda broke from those to have a baby. This too lent itself to a book in the form of Dear Poppyseed, the soulful, hormonal, emotional diary of my pregnancy. Since birthing Miss Ivy I have been all mother and no 'other'. I have thrown myself into being a mum more than I have ever done anything, like ever, ever, ever. It's been lifechanging. It's been my out and out everything for near on 15 months now.
I was beginning to think my overt 'spiritual' inclinations were lost to motherhood. I did not see this as a bad thing. Because being a mum, and all it entails is the most grounded, spiritual thing I have ever done. It is an ode to soul, an overture of love enacted through the very physical, the very day to day. So I was happy. If this was to be it, then that was enough.
But as it happens the whole spiritual malarky has come a knocking again. I feel myself inclined to get all hippy. I am lighting candles, reading cards, burning cleansing substances and giving reiki to cats. I have come over all spiritual, all over again. And this time I really, really mean it.
Of course I meant it last time too. It spawned two books, and so yeah, I was dead serious about it. But this time I feel different. I have my little bear, and so my spirit revolves around her. I am her moon. She pulls me back in when it all gets a bit too woo. But I am gently exploring my old stomping ground. The tarot cards have made a delightful resurgence, and the demand for readings has unexpectedly hit an all time high, without so much as a single advert on my part. I am exploring these new spiritual avenues, and I am considering how I may serve that calling well and serve it proudly.
This time round I feel so bold. I've always kinda hidden my spiritual inclinations under a bushel. Not really pushing my books, not really talking about my tarot, not really admitting to anything much... But this time round I am out of the spiritual closet. I am a tarot reader, hell yeah. I am an author of all kinds of magicky woo. I do believe in life aver after and non-coincidence and the soul, the spirit, all that jazz. I feel it in my bones and if it is of interest to you, I want to help you feel it too. Oh lordy, it seems I'm born again!
Anyway, if you do know my career, you'll know I used to run soul-cafe, an online interactive spiritual site. It got a bit too much when baby came along so I shut it down. But I miss the interactivity, the soulful sharing. So I have deleted all my facebook individual book pages and I have started a new one, cos like, everyone is on facebook right? If you want to follow me, or find a lovely little nest full of all my eggs, then here it is https://www.facebook.com/AliceGristHighHeeledSoul You are very welcome here, and I encourage interaction, sharing , questions.
I am feeling decidedly spiritual again. I am ready to embrace my Woo, and I hope you will come along with me for the ride! Alice x
