'No Fear - A Spell' is adapted from my post on Instagram.
No Fear – If letters make up words, and they are used to spell, and songs are made of words, are songs used to cast spells?
“I will NOT live in paralysis.
I do not care what the system knows.
I will not run, not run, not run.
I am a warrior of love.
I build my armour stronger.
No fear.” – this is what I hear when Donna Missal sings on this Rudimental and Martinez Brothers’ track but the “A.I. generated” lyrics beg to differ.
Different sites, different things but the machine-recorded versions are all pretty axed against human greatness.
Knowing the power of words, music, frequency and vibrations on us as living, organic beings mostly composed of water. Knowing how water has memory, how water structures itself based on what it sees, feels and hears… and how our cells, made mostly of water form our incredible but susceptible-to-infiltration Organic Intelligence.
Regardless of what is going on in the outside world.

LOLz at the click-baity title that makes it seem I’ve been assimilated by the *influenzers but actually this is genuinely how passionate I am about this revolution in my life. Obviously, as I love you all very much, I simply must share in the hopes that many others can benefit too.
*A combination of the words ‘influencer’ and ‘influenza’
Simply put, the lymphatic system is a vital ensemble that regulates and impacts numerous other bodily functions. Its optimal performance is ESSENTIAL in keeping us alive, preferably with flourishing health.
For most people, this system functions unnoticed until there is inflammation. At this point, the major lymph nodes might start to feel noticeably sore as they work hard to assist detoxification in the body.
Debilitating symptoms can develop when the lymphatic system is unbalanced. Subsequently resulting in oft-extreme swelling and fluid retention in areas of the body (lymphoedema). This can either be due to lymph dysfunction directly or via secondary effects of biological programs such as cancer or other so-called diseases. Some are even born with hereditary lymphatic challenges. For those cases, dedicated lymphatic protocols need to be explored in more detail with the assistance of professional, holistically-minded carers.
As I’m not a medical professional, nor am I an expert in biology or anything like that, I’ll avoid getting too technical. If that’s your bag, you can refer to some of the extensive scientific content that exists.
Unless you have any serious medical condition that requires direct monitoring by professionals, the basics of lymphatic massage ARE accessible to most and easy to grasp. I think anyone in this case really can start using lymphatic massage and literally begin to change their life today.
Thankfully, we now have access to educational resources without going to the ends of the earth. Anyone with access to the internet can hunt down quality sources, learn about and apply this wisdom to improve their well-being and general existence.
Keep reading for my take on why we should ALL be offering our bodies this kind of uncomplicated, free, yet vital support. Regardless of the state of the outside world, who we are, where we come from and what our story is.

- What is seen on screen is often manipulated and technically not "real".
- Avoid comparing yourself and your life with curated images and content.
- Take social media and screen breaks often, even from the turd on the telly / radio / news.
- Turn it off. Reconnect with yourself and the purity of your heart.
- The simplicity of nature helps to balance the synthetic assault on life, my advice to any who are suffering and feeling drained:
- Go be one with the wild, savage and clean air in spaces far from urban sprawl, bad juju and toxic compounds.
After watching a couple of documentaries on the subject of the modern beauty industry and the rise of Cosmetic procedures, at an increasingly younger age (in French on YouTube, shared to my Francophone tele group, link in bio if you want to watch, they might have subtitles idk). It reminds me of how too many young people are falling prey to our modern inversions around appearances.
When all we see on screen and amongst us is fake, there is no doubt why it becomes difficult to sit with the reality of things. Especially if one doesn’t feel that they naturally fit into the current dictate of what is seemingly desirable and “getting work done” has become so commonplace and expected a “solution”.
Lecture time for 'Lolita: Reading Lolita in France' is approx. 7-10 minutes. If you prefer to listen to me reading this article, find the audio for 'Lolita: Reading Lolita in France' using the search tool in The Sorting House group on Telegram. * Correction: Nabokov published Lolita in 1955, not 1954.
A little backstory; I’ve been consuming one of the random publications that I found amongst a pile of English language books once gifted and subsequently living in my house. It’s called ‘Reading Lolita in Tehran’ by Azar Nifisi. Apparently, a NY Times bestseller, I know not of the author, the acclaimed book or the subjects within and it certainly wasn’t my first choice. After smashing through the most visually appealing of this freebie bunch, I was left with the stragglers that I had to decide between by actually studying the blurbs on the back. Yes, initially I heavily judged these books by their covers. Come on, even if we technically shouldn’t, who actually doesn’t?
After some years of reading almost exclusively in French, the ease of reading again in my mother tongue always delights, especially compared to the clunkiness of my comprehension en Français. As an aside, you may or may not have noticed there is a new tab up on the Menu bar of this website named ‘Resources’. I mention it because I’ve decided to start listing the books available in English (as well as podcasts, playlists, artists etc.) that I enjoy, in no particular order, so that other anglophones looking for inspiration might peruse them, and maybe even enjoy them too. AND, if feeling particularly bold, might even wish to discuss with me further, on The Sorting House telegram group or IRL.
Anyway, upon greedily consuming the most appealing of these few books that had by way of “coincidence” found themselves in my library amongst a sea of many read, half-read and unread French and English language titles. There I was, floating in a ferocious desire to continue digesting these new, second-hand books written in a language I feel most comfortable in, I finally decided to start ‘Reading Lolita in Tehran’ by Azar Nifisi. The issue being that it’s a biographical book by an English literature professor, and it discusses many great works – many of which I haven’t actually read. Hmm, turns out this choice was not so comfortable after all.
When the means of subsisting correctly have slipped into the hands of psychopaths, there must be fertile resistance from those that wish to keep living outside of this assault.
For time this need for fertile resistance has been established and evident for all who search and ponder.
If there is any doubt about the need for fertile resistance outside of these mega-systems on your part then please move along, get the pricks and the chips. Do as you are told without further a do OR devote yourself now to learning something new.
Recently I learned that many countries have reintegrated the excluded healthcare workers.
For my own peace the past few years I have sought to learn and say less about our most recent “health crisis”. However, given how close this hits home, I just can’t keep it shut anymore.
Most healthcare workers gave their all in a provoked climate of fear. Yet the nations saw fit to accolade them by tapping on pans, whilst their unscrupulous colleagues racked in the likes for bravely dancing on the front lines of social media.
Admittedly, healthcare workers have been pushed to the limits of what’s generally considered reasonable in our so-called civilised societies for as long as the industry has existed. Can we cut them some slack for letting off steam in this way? I’m not so sure.
Creamy Polenta is a north Italian dish made of ground cornmeal not dissimilar to the Grits of the southern USA.
Polenta purists would chase me right out of town for even considering the “instant” Polenta version I’m sure. Don’t worry, if you are opting for Organic as standard then it isn’t genetically modified Frankenfood. Instant or quick cook Polenta is simply Italian cornmeal that is more finely ground and therefore cooks very quickly (approx. 5 mins) compared to the long cook (approx. 40 mins) of the coarse version.
I tend not to try and make life more complicated than it needs to be. At least not when it comes to cooking Polenta dishes. Given the state of our food industries and the world at large, I cook to control the ingredients and quality of food that I eat, not to spend endless hours in the kitchen. Plus Polenta in all of its varieties really isn’t my fave thing to eat. I suppose a Polenta purist might argue that is because I opt for the easy quick-cook version. Personally, I would live off a combination of potato dishes and pizza if there were no repercussions but nutritional variety is key to health and maybe even the spice of life, as they say.
Foraging wild plants for food, medicinal or cosmetic purposes is one of the many ways of developing a meaningful connection to our earth.
The earth we all depend on as earth beings and that makes our lives possible to begin with!
Oft forgotten, minimised or shunned, this ancestral, vital, unsynthesized, natural connection is sadly overlooked by many these days, yet is likely to be the missing part of the puzzle that helps harmonise all the woes we face.
For some people, even just a whiff of discussion regarding anything to do with astrology will be enough to have their eyes rolling back in dismissal. Some of us may be indifferent either way. Whilst others ignorantly adhere to an astrology system, consult astrologers, and consume astrology apps or astrology sites with religious regularity.
Given what I’ve observed over the last few years, I think even if most know their alleged Sun Sign, they would still scoff at anyone seriously entertaining such “pseudoscientific” practices like astrology these days. After all, most “trust the science” and the science of today marks a distinct split in what was once a unified field of study. Yep, I’m referencing that gaping chasm that has been increasingly separating astronomy from astrology.
Those with an interest in Astro history or observing the night sky will be smirking now, “duh, obviously!” For the rest that may be thinking, “huh?” Let’s break it down, shall we?
Many sympathisers of astrology don’t realise that what’s discussed within an astrological framework concerning the positions of planets and heavenly happenings is built on illusoryfabrications. Astrology speaks of planetary placements that don’t align with anything that’s physically observable. Not with our given senses, not in the sky, nor an astronomical framework.
