Sweet balloon lady


(The client: female, late 40's, single, last relationship she had was 8 years' ago with a married man.  She was at a crux in her life, she wanted a new partner but was unsure where she wanted to live and what she wanted to do with her life.  She was moving to another town soon but not sure when, she knew it needed to be by the sea because she feels alive when she lives by the sea.  Her father features a lot in her work with me, she has developed a strong patriarchal energy that criticises her for her lack of 'good' male partners, for bringing in narcissistic men - this energy blames her for not being 'enough' in many guises - not pretty enough, not thin enough, not bright enough, etc.  It thinks she should be perfect, not show her feelings, keep strong, solid (in many ways masculine in energy).  Her dreams below show how she is softening into the feminine intuitive, being state and starting to come home to herself in a very beautiful way).

"I dream there is the potential of a new man in my life, someone I don't know but I feel their energy/can see them in my dream, then just as I am coming into contact with this new man, my previous lover walks into the dream as if to interrupt what I am discussing with this new man.  I am annoyed that he has entered into the dialogue (this relates to the image I saw Jane, when you asked me where he was in my golden circle and I said in the very dark grey out on the periphery but maybe in my subconscious  I am aware that he would still like to be a part of my life as a close friend regardless of who I am connected to or maybe I am a little scared to let him go fully without having someone else in my life?"

(A few months' later)" I dream I am on holiday and there's a man I don't know that I am very energetically attracted to (nothing to do with his looks but I am very aware of this energy and the sensuous nature of him).  He's dark and foreign looking in feel and it's as if we would touch souls rather than speak to communicate.  He's unattached.  He and I are entwined in a rapturous hug. We are dancing, swirling, softly undulating in a beautiful rhythm.  I am naked.  It's strange because he has come into he room carrying a very tall and thin tower of lego bricks all multi-coloured.  As he hugs me we are both very careful not to let the tower break between us because it's so beautiful. At the same time I become aware of my brother appearing to be on holiday with my group and is staying in another part of the hotel.  My past lover is not in this dream...yay feels like progress......"

We are at any one time a mostly unconscious ecosystem of variable energetics and changing internal climates.  My consultation room gives space for the expression, sometimes incarnation, often letting go with kindness and thanks to those energetics that have previously been driving us or are waiting to be birthed.  Hindu spirituality talks of the true self or the higher self but to be honest there is no hierarchy - we are all colonies of self, selves and disparate forgotten parts that need re-membering literally back to our greater wholeness.

Time to rewire and rev up your inner witch

Women who dream of flying are connecting back to their innate desire to be free and connected to their birthright of the numinous.  Supernatural flying women date back from prehistoric times when people postulated the radical divide between earth and sky. We created myths and rituals to bridge this separation, incense and fire to create smoke to connect the earth to the heavens and evoke spirit. Women have always flown to take refuge from the concretised captivity of earth's gravity and the mental plane that, when overly lived in, constrains and constricts.

The Good, the Bad, and the Wild

A client came to me saying she had a dream where her best friend was flirting with her boyfriend in a very provocative way and as she watched the scene unfold she felt strangely voyeuristic to it and turned on. And the more her man was turned on the greater she felt it amplified in her too.  We talked about her own sex life, what she liked/didn't, whether she initiated, role played etc.

Some Information about Jane

Jane Kersel is recognised as one of the most distinguished  embodied movement, yoga and consciousness teacher in London. She is a teacher’s teacher and was a much loved teacher at The Life Centre, Yoga Campus, The Bio-medical Trust + Triyoga (where she trail-blazed and invented their Hot yoga offering and the design of their studios).  Now she works in her new vessel the Ethereal Gym teaching consciousness through the visceral body and private one to one  and couples consultations sharing jungian analysis techniques and healing modalities.

My Philosophy and intention for all who study with me

  • to see life as a spiritual investment as much a material one - invest in love, harmony, inspiration, creativity, beauty
  • to commit to our own happiness - not waiting for someone else to sort things for us
  • to create rapture - channeling venus energy - to live as the dream of the lover and mystic
  • to let go of the patriarchal model and ask for the dream


At that moment, the door to my studio opened as if a gust of wind had gotten behind it (this so often happens when working with spirit).

We both smiled, it was as if her lover had walked into the room there and then, his energy had arrived.

Creating space

It’s important in our work together that we never over-ride these ‘primary’ parts - the parts of us that are out there in the world functioning and getting things done. However, without the understanding and integration of both of these polarities - the doing with the being, the feeling with the thinking etc

creating inner space

To observe and do shadow work, we need the experience of being centered in a higher self. That is why our spiritual practice is so pivotal. Without space inside our minds to observe forbidden feelings and behaviors, they take over. When they do, we feel controlled and overshadowed by them.
