Winter Solstice 2022 Celebrations

This week we celebrate the Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year that proceeds the return of the light.

It is like the dark moon, a time for quiet contemplation, meditation and sowing seeds for the new cycle that’s coming. Hence, this event is quiet, gentle but deep and powerful – it can be used to chart your future course.

It’s good to honour the sacred cardinal points of the year in some way, as they represent the wheel of the year and key passages of time. They are great days to meditate and reflect – and celebrate even in the simplest of ways.

The Winter Solstice represents rebirth. It is a great time to think about what you have achieved this year, where you are heading next and set clear intentions that will blossom in the spring. Creating your intentions/goals into a physical form is similar to writing down your goals. Making your prayers and intentions material gives them the power to manifest much more easily. This is backed up by countless research – goals and intentions/business or life plans that are written are around 90% more effective than those that, however clear, are just thoughts in a person’s head.

When you have the big vision for a new year ahead, it can then be split into manageable steps, one month at a time. Also, I can show you where to position your vision, as well as the small steps to get there.

Sacred Ceremonies

Honouring the Solstice in your own way helps you feel connected to life’s natural rhythms. It helps you stay grounded, in the same way that knowing roughly where North, East, South and West are at any time. Or, tuning your sleep cycle to the time of the year, resting more in the darker months and then progressing the ideas you have incubated as the days get longer again.

This year, I am quietly honouring this Solstice with an afternoon of healing, with friends and clients, at my studio in Woolverstone. It is invitation-only event, but please contact me if you would like to come – call 07780 612625. You can arrive for any part of this, it will be fluid and relaxed.

I will be offering the following from 2-6pm:

  • Reiki Drumming journeys to provide deep reflective inspiration on the year that is drawing to a close and where you go next. These will be individual, and/or group based, and last about 10 mins per session. If you are new to journeying, I will guide you through the process, and explain it fully. It is a powerful tool when used regularly, but in its simplest form provides a gentle form of deep relaxation combined with the benefits of reiki healing. They offer a great way to relax, tune in and reflect.

  • The option to make or start a vision board for your best 2023 – materials provided or bring your own.  

  • The option to simply be creative.

  • A healing candle mediation to close, welcoming back the light with gratitude and appreciation for everything this year has given, taught, and changed within us, however great or tough.


Please feel free to arrive any time, just tap on the window or door and I will let you in. You can stay for all or part of the afternoon. My only requirement is to respect the energy of others who are there and still in process if/when you need to leave.


Herbal teas, water and non-alcoholic mulled wine along with sweet treats and healthy snacks will be provided throughout the afternoon on a help yourself basis. There will also normal tea and coffee available at all times.

Anyone interested in making their own non-alcoholic mulled wine can try the recipe below.

Fine Art Brings Happiness

A beautiful and moving image now graces my wall: layers of vibrant colour alternatively reveal and conceal forms of significance, depicted with emotion and artistry. The abstract quality is such that it is a timeless piece I will always value and enjoy.
Thankyou !

Feng Shui Consultation for New Home

Growing up in China, I have always interested in Fengshui. As we were moving to Ipswich, I googled Fengshui consultant locally and that is how I found Rachel. I am so glad that we connected through the email initially. The house move took 9 months, Rachel was so patient, and she offered me advice through the process. I was so excited to meet her the day after we moved in. It provided us with a lot of comfort and guidiance at the new home. With her consultation, we had a much better understanding of the new space. Rachel is very intuitive, she did the dowsing, cleared the geopathic stress by using 'acupuncture'. The ritual she carried out involved all family member, so it was rather special.  By using Fengshui principle and combined with our personal astrology, Rachel pointed out where the 'special corners' in our house, for example the wealth, relationship, friends and helpful people etc; She also helped us choose the interior colour, elemental accessories, positive symbolism in art works etc. I am so glad that I have found Rachel. It made us settle in and connect with our new home much quicker. The declutter has given us a much healthier space to live in. Whenever I feel disconnected with our home, I try to use some of the Fengshui she taught us to refresh and cleanse. I am so grateful that I contacted Rachel at the first place. 

Feng Shui Resolved Serious Mental Health Issue

I asked for Rachels help with a young family member. They were having mental health issues which involved refusing to attend school, withdrawing from friendship groups and showing signs of psychosis. Rachel discussed with me her findings regarding her birth date and time in relation to her specialised work. Together we put a plan in place as I was to help. I carried out her recommendations. She stated that this time would come to an end this Spring and they would be through the part of the chart that was causing the chaos. I am so excited to report that they were again attending school until the lockdown. She is fully interacting with her family and is again part of her friendship group. Due to the lockdown and her now being well she is catching up with the school work she missed and will be ready to start again when the time comes. She is now off all medication which included ADHD and antidepressant prescription drugs. I cannot thank Rachel enough. If you are on the fence regarding her work, don’t be, it will be the best thing you could do for yourself and those you care for.

Feng Shui Consultation Solved Tenant Crisis Ipswich

"Before I got in touch with Rachel, I was at a loss to know what to do. I had bought a flat to rent out in Ipswich, but it attracted the wrong types of tenants. The previous three tenants had either not paid their rent or had left the flat in a very bad state of repair, or both. In effect, I was just chucking money into a big black hole. I wanted to keep the flat, which I would eventually pass on to my son, but I still had the mortgage to pay. After reading about feng shui and the effect it can have, I was keen to find out more. I contacted Rachel and she explained what she intended to do and why. Admittedly, I was a bit sceptical at first, but I was keen to give it a go. Much to my amazement, after a six month rent void, that same week, a potential tenant turned up at the flat. The couple liked what they saw and moved in within two weeks. Much to my relief, they also paid the rent on time. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone in a similar situation."
