The Power of Me Too

“It doesn’t matter whether you have a huge group of friends and go out every weekend or if you’re in a “perfect” romantic relationship (as if those exist). It’s the quality of the relationships–how much vulnerability and depth exists within them; how safe you feel sharing with one another; the extent to which you can relax and be seen for who you truly are, and truly see another.” [A 75-year Harvard study on living a fulfilling life]

Had so much fun chatting to Brigit about tarot on the Biddy Tarot Podcast!

 

 

Speaking of tarot, my new course, In Our Element, is now open for enrollment!

I’ve been asked many times if I do tarot readings for other people and my answer is always no, I don’t. Instead, I prefer to teach you how to use the cards yourself to connect more deeply with your own intuition. In Our Element is my third tarot-related course but this time we’re using just four cards to inspire our personal excavations. Out of the 78 cards in a tarot deck it’s the four Queen cards I search for most often when in need of inspiration. These four archetypes have become invaluable guides for me as they represent the absolute embodiment of each of the four elements — Fire, Water, Air and Earth. The Queens have SO much to teach us about sensuality and creativity, emotions and empathy, logic and wisdom and being grounded in our own bodies.

In this 4-week course we’ll study the light and shadow aspects of each element, journey to meet the Queens within us in guided visualisations, create personal practices to bring more elemental balance into our every day lives and learn what to do when the elements are out of balance. It’s not unusual to instinctively identify with one element over the others and being able to recognise when you’re too “in your head” or “drowning” in your emotions helps you maintain balance internally so you can navigate the external with more ease.

You don’t need to know anything about the tarot to take this class as I’ll be introducing you to the Queens in weekly videos. If you’re keen to understand more about your own elemental nature and learn new ways to harness and use this powerful energy in your daily life, this is the course for you.

Class starts on Monday May 8th and registration is happening over HERE.

Come play with us! x

“We’re still pretty traumatised about our periods, even though we’re now 40. Being a woman doesn’t make “being a woman” any easier. All that womb-shit is nuts. It’s like having an exploding, insane blood-bag of pain up in your business end — nothing really prepares you for when it all kicks off. One day, you’re just a kid on your bike. The next, you’re suddenly having to wedge a tiny Barbie mattress in your knickers, crying while you watch Bergerac, and eating Nurofen Plus like they’re Tic Tacs.” — I love Caitlin Moran

Let’s make magic in 2017!

Unravel Your Year 2017 : a free workbook on SusannahConway.com

 

If you ever meet me in the street I can guarantee I’ll have a journal with me. Writing stuff down has always been how I make sense of the world, ever since my 11-year-old self chronicled the passing of her guinea pig in her Bramley Hedge notebook. So it’ll come as no surprise that I love all the reflecting that goes on at this time of year and I especially love sharing my yearly workbook with the world!

It’s got a new name but I promise I haven’t altered too much in this 2017 edition. I like to compare my answers from year to year and as a creature of habit it feels extra cosy to sink into these familiar pages and reflect on the year that’s passing. The cover is full colour which will look fab if you’re getting it printed (I like Blurb’s economy magazine option) but to keep it printer-friendly I’m including a separate B&W cover you can colour in if you wish :-)

 

Unravel Your Year 2017

 

This year I’m also experimenting with a planner of sorts. The calendar’s been jazzed up and I’ve added some monthly reflections (loving these a lot!). You’ll also find blank daily and weekly pages at the back which you can use to create your own DIY planner. To be completely honest I have no idea how well this will work, but it’s something I’ve been hankering after for ages. There’s a good chance 2018’s workbook will be accompanied by a full-on planner…. Watch this space!

If you share your printed workbooks and planners on social media use the hashtag #unravelyouryear2017 so I can take a peek at the magic you’re making!

Find Your Word 2017 :: the free 5-day course on SusannahConway.com

 

Find Your Word is also back by popular demand!

In the eight years I’ve been choosing a word for the year, my life has certainly changed for the better. Some of my previous words proved to be wildly empowering — BRAVE, EXPAND and OPEN were all dynamically useful words that helped me create change in my life. Other words have been less helpful: COMPASSION, for example, was a bit of a cop-out in 2011. Last year’s word was NOURISH and it was the most supportive and nourishing — pun intended — word I’ve chosen so far. This year I’ve danced with LOVE and now I look back I see it was exactly the word I needed to navigate all this year has thrown at me.

The more I do this practice the more I understand why it’s such a valuable thing to do each year. I also know that sometimes we need a hand uncovering our just-right word, so I created this sweet lil 5-day course to help you find YOUR word for 2017.

Head over to this page
to get started — it’s completely free, of course!

ENJOY! xo
