About Lucy

My Path • My gifts • my intention

I’m a truth seeker. I’m a writer. I’m an osteopath. I love to share my skills.

I was taught to focus on one thing.  I have found that my ‘one thing’ is to seek truth and share that to inspire and motivate others – to do that I use many things.  I cannot use just one thing e.g. just writing, or just spending time in nature, or just doing hands on osteopathic work.  Each of my ‘things’ does better when I weave it with the other things and create a beautiful mosaic.  It took me a long time to understand this.  It felt too eclectic, like I was trying to pull together disparate threads until I understood the connections between brought cohesion.  For example:

  • One day I was walking in the forest and I realized my writing was inspired by the quiet moments I access in nature and the intuitive knowings that sometimes come when I walk in the wild.

  • When I move in dance, yoga or create my own sequences I feel a joy of self expression which makes me feel more alive, brighter, stronger. I nourish my body in this way. Movement gives me the calmness I need to sit down and write or sit down and be still while I’m treating clients.

  • When I write I draw forwards truths that light up my imagination and my heart. I feel a sense of awe, excitement and wonder as pieces of the stories come to me. I figure out my inner world and the outer world through my writing and know that writing is part of my expression that I must do.
