Your Author

Hello! I’m Jessica and I write stuff.

I have stacked shelves, been a clerical serf, labelled library books, counselled addicts, toured Europe with an orchestra, and produced demos for rock bands, before ending up in a cupboard recording a talking newspaper. I began to write in an effort to make sense of it all.

I live in my head, but can usually be found in the UK.

Here are some nouns that stick: Writer, Sound Engineer, Musician, Mystic, Astrologer, Zen Buddhist, and Trainee Human.

I hope you find this site interesting, entertaining and/or helpful. There are tons of archives so be sure to have a good rummage.

I look forward to meeting you!

Jes 🙂

      1. Of Course, I now own the whole of Season 1, And Season 2 is on its way, The Man The Myth.
        Also Managed to get hold of Journey to the west by Steven Chow, English Subtitles of course, This is well worth a watch, if you havent already, Its just as Nutty as the series. He is currently in production of Journey to the west 2.

  2. Hi Jessica – Glad it’s going well. Have you now stopped using your old header pic, the metaphysical line-drawing? If so, can I use it? I’ve not found anything better. Might as well steal your good idea if I can. .

    1. Thanks Lee, much appreciated. I hadn’t really thought about the resource centre being anything more than just a page of useful links to help people. I’m not an expert or qualified to counsel people, so it wasn’t my intention to set myself up as a teacher or offer services. I’m just a writer trying to make sense of her own experience – some of it might hit home for others and help, but mostly I’m stumbling around in the dark the same as everyone else! People can always get in touch via the contact page if they wish.

      Thanks for the support. I always enjoy your posts – you have a fascinating take on the world and lots of interesting experiences to share. I’m going to read more of your stuff – starting with the links you kindly put on the spiritual crisis centre page 🙂

      1. It’s great what you are doing. I have a very similar view in that I aim for this beautiful synthesis between my creative expression and my altruism. I’ve always made a point of doing some real good in the world with my gifts. To do otherwise would seem like I was squandering them. Like I’m not about to start writing laundry detergent copy no matter how much I was getting paid. But even if I had never made a cent from my writing I would still feel that I have upheld my end of the pact my soul made with the universe.

  4. Hi Jessica,
    Hi Jessica,
    I found you via Karin of Spiritual Awakening and very glad that I did. Our charts are similiar ( I am 16 degrees Aquarius rising with 5 degrees Sag MH) Our stories are also somewhat similar. I discovered that in fact I was a mystic in 2005, but that I had truly been so since my teens ( or longer). On my blog litebeing chronicles, the original subtitle was Adventures of a part time mystic. I know I will find inspiration here!

    peace,
    litebeing

  5. HI Jessica, I just stumbled upon your website. I awakened a few years ago because of a trauma, it took me a while to sort everything out. Now, I am running into more and more awakened people. I am an author as well. My first book, Detour from Normal (2013) recounts my life saving surgery and how it resulted in chemically induced mania. Long story short, I became awakened during that time. If you don’t already know Vironika Tugeleva, she is a sort of ring leader who is connecting awakened people. You can contact her via her website: Vironika.org or via therealus.com, her other website where people post inspiring stories. She may ask you to post your story. I have two articles there. Anyway, I’d love to speak with you more and learn about your journey.

    Sincerely,
    Ken Dickson

    1. Hi Ken, I’ve had a quick look at your website and your story sounds fascinating. There are many people who could benefit from reading it. It’s a hard journey to take, from thinking you’re fine, the descent into madness, and then coming out the other side. I’m glad you found your way through. Vironika’s site looks interesting too and I might think about writing something for the Real Us. There’s a few posts on this site about parts of my process of awakening, but I haven’t written it out in full – partly because it started over 20 years ago and that’s a lot of material! It can be a long journey with lots of ups and downs, but we all get there in the end.

      I wish you all the best on your journey, and thanks for stopping by.
      Jes
