Men-An-Tol: Fact and Fiction – An artist’s impression.

The Men-An-Tol stones are one of the best known standing stones we have in Cornwall. There is no mistaking the amazing ring stone with it’s two uprights either side. Together with their remote location they have a slightly strange and ethereal quality no doubt enhanced by the various folklore stories surrounding them. Enter a visionary artist! For me the overriding feel is cosmic and just shouts portals and gateways – hopefully you know where I am coming from – and no I haven’t been inspired by Erich Von Daniken! With that inspiration in mind, I took my first photos of them in the Spring of 2012 and the result was my first ever standing stone artworks. Titled simply and no doubt boringly “Men-An-Tol 1” (back in those days my titles weren’t so poetic) it became a bestseller in that year. In 2014 I revised the original slightly giving the image a colour tweak that will no doubt confuse future art historians! I also created […]

Past life connections… ancient longing…..and a lesson from our ancestors.

Have you ever travelled to a place that suddenly makes you feel “at home”? Have you ever felt drawn to a location that somehow makes you feel that you have been there before, or a location that you want to come back to time and time again? Have you ever felt that tinge of something special that instantly makes you feel connected to a place, something you can’t quite put your finger on but makes you feel like you have “arrived home” and this is where home is? Have these feelings surprised you, taken you aback and hit you emotionally and wondrously? Does that feeling go deeper, perhaps even back to something that is deeply rooted in your psyche like an ancient longing or perhaps even a past life? Well that was a feeling that I experienced recently when I visited one of Cornwall’s most interesting ancient sites, called Carn Euny.

Carn Euny is an archaeological site located in a remote position on the Penwith peninsula near Sancreed in West Cornwall. There is evidence of both Iron […]

Spiritually Connecting Blog July 16 – Lupton Holistic Festival

Happy May Day and this weeks news!

Before wishing you all a happy May Day I thought it would be a good idea to read a little about the days significance and the basis of the Spring Bank Holiday.  We often lose sight of why we stop and celebrate, simply seeing the holidays as a long weekend to meet up with friends and relatives, this is not a bad thing but I do think that sometimes it is good to look at how our ancestors celebrated the Earths cycle.

While searching for the answers I found that the earliest May Day celebrations appeared in pre-Christian times, with the Floralia, festival of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers.  It is a day mainly celebrated in the northern hemisphere with festivals and public holidays but many cultures also celebrate this wonderful time of spring.

panier-fleuriIn the United Kingdom May Day has been a traditional day of festivities throughout the centuries.  Over this weekend many towns and villages will be celebrating springtime with village fetes and community […]

Rachel Fleming’s Healing Greek Experience

It is the intention of the team at Spiritually Connecting to bring to you a variety of writings in the hope that the words inspire you in some way and today it is with great pleasure that we introduce Rachel Fleming as she writes about her experience on a yoga retreat in Greece.


It is coming into the fiery part of the day elementally when my body should be laying down to sleep and process all that has gone on. But it has been a fiery day and fire will often feed more fire. Then there is no space to burn out and die down.

We do need the heat though to cleanse us, warm us, help to get us “fired up”. And it was this need for heat in my bones to heal me that brings me to write again about my experience in Greece this year.

I found myself in Greece, sans family, with a dear teacher who had guided me so well in my early Yoga years. It was mid July […]

Art from the 5th Dimension and Beyond; A fresh perspective…..

2016 marks five years of my artistic journey. During this time many title changes have reflected my creative thinking, each one a conveyor of the style of my art and perhaps more accurately the artist’s vision. As the journey continues – and it will continue for as long as I feel able to sustain my spiritual and creative wellbeing – I arrive at another destination and point in time with an effective and sustainable “mood board” to illustrate my vision, one that feels firmly rooted in my psyche. It is a launch pad for a multi-dimensional journey where I can alight at will, observe, create, bring the artistic interpretations back to the viewers realm and then resume my travels to the next destination. I am reminded of an alien in an early Star Trek episode who says “you are being taken under our power to your destination”!

As corporeal beings we inhabit a 5-dimensional universe; that is we exist in and are aware of a 5-dimensional plane of existence – length, width, height, time and […]

Spring Message – Jane Fishlock

Hi everyone well what rollercoaster of a start to the year as waves of the new energy bringing in wondrous light in order that we walk towards peace and harmony. As the light enters the negative gets the chance to raise to the surface and leave ourselves and our planet to once again allow balance. All sounds fine, even fun doesn’t it! but what does that mean in human terms. Many will find this time disruptive as our level of vibration is increased. So Slow down and let it happen. All is well you see and will settle much more by the end of the summer. Try and concentrate on all of those positive things in your life.
birdFor those who are saying there aren’t any, walk into nature and listen to the birdsong, it will lift your spirits. Many angels are around as the new comes in, whispering new thoughts and new ways of being. Why not spend some time listening to these whispers and feelings. […]

It’s February already!

I don’t know how you are feeling but to me the past month has zipped by, its been a mixed month of new promises to myself to improve my diet, move my body (walking and yoga are my thing) and to tap into my creativity.  The fact is, its been slow on all three promises but I am not going to beat myself up, I have the confidence that I will achieve what I need to achieve and that confidence is key!

Dark January is generally a difficult month, most of us start with great intentions setting ourselves challenging actions to carry out in a month that is wet, windy and dark! We all need to remember, as I mentioned last month, that to love ourselves is of utmost importance. I am personally working each day to implement just a small change and to include a little time for the promises I made to myself.

I am a very lucky lady, I have several lovely things to look forward to, […]

Sanctuary and Spirit – The Nature Connection.

One of my favourite pastimes is a brisk walk in the countryside – in virtually any weather! And in any case when you have a dog, you have no excuse! Very close to where I live is a network of lanes meandering through beautiful lush countryside. The landscape is varied with fields, woodland, rivers and lots of ancient trees. It has been said many times but I make no apology for repeating – a walk in nature is an inspired, healthy and holistic choice for reducing stress, not to mention a good way of getting away from it all! More often than not, any worries or concerns are sidelined when I am out in this environment. I am also much more relaxed, feel free and, as an artist, inspired. I feel spiritually connected to our natural environment.

I stop to listen to nature’s sounds – the wind in the trees, look up into their canopies and feel their spiritual presence. I stop to take in the sound of flowing rivers and the delicate trickle of […]

Happy New Year…..the year ahead

Happy New Year to you all, I wish you all a year of peace, good health and happiness.

It is with joy that I excitedly move forward into 2016, I am looking forward to a year of fun and laughter along with some hard work. My manifestation book is flowing with the things I wish to bring forth in my life, all my wishes are equally important, but I do hope I can spread joy and happiness by connecting with people through this website. The site started out as a small project to help people connect and over the past year it has evolved to something much bigger than I expected! The process has certainly taken me on a journey of discovery, I have managed to learn so many new things in the past year and I am hopeful that those skills will continue to grow.

Welcome to my world – please step inside!

A very warm welcome to my pages on Spiritually Connecting. I am honoured to be here! Over the coming weeks I will write about my work or any related subject that I find inspiring that I hope will help readers along the spiritual path. But for my first blog I will tell you a bit more about my path to becoming an artist as well as an insight into my other interests and inspirations and how I believe my art can help heal, inspire or simply draw you into a magical realm!

It was late 2010 and very early one morning, at around 5am, I woke up. Nothing unusual about that but what followed was what I can only describe as a spiritual experience – that I will never forget. As I lay in bed just in a state of consciousness I was aware of how dark my environment was but still able to make sense of my surroundings. I was aware of the room I was in, the bed I had slept in, my partner […]

The Magnificence

As I sit writing today after a holiday away from the UK feeling refreshed and ready to begin the next phase in my life I am truly grateful for the time spent with my hubby and great friends, and forIMG_2394 the close bond we all have.  We are all very individual in our approach to life, but within that we are accepting in our love for each others differences, and this blends us as a group to have fun and laughter, which leads to an upliftment that we all feel as we now move back to the day job!

I am consciously aware that I am truly lucky to be able to connect in my life with people that love and support me for who I am. I know that the differences make us the individuals that we are but all together the same loving souls leading this magical human existence.

It has taken us a few months to get the section right but I am delighted with the outcome, I hope you all agree!

Last of the summer wine and thoughts on relationships

Hi everyone as the summer has come to a close and the beautiful colours of autumn arrive I thought I would send to those that are interested a update of what’s been going on.

My summer as I expect for many of you has been very busy. I have run several beautiful angel events and talks and would like to extend my thanks to every one of you that have shared these with me. I am always extremely honoured to have shared these times with you and the angelic realms which never fail to amaze me.

This summer I also had the privilege of taking part in the healing fair at Highbridge. This was a three day event organised by Elaine Fenton and Ron Tropman. It is always well organised and has a wonderful energy for people to share. I shared a marquee with my friend and colleague Lorraine Lane. What a wonderful three days we had full of fun, laughter, upliftment and on the serious side healing and comfort as we engaged with our loved ones past and present. Before the fair I was guided to run a question and answer session on a daily basis. Lorraine and I decided to run it at 2pm each day and we ourselves were uplifted by its outcome. We are often asked for teaching and individual questions to be answered so we thought why not go for it. The questions came thick and fast and were on a vast array of subjects and between us we were able to answer all. We were even surprised ourselves at some of the answers. What I have found over the years is that people want to learn from the spirit world and gain knowledge that is simple and easy to apply to either their situation or their lives. This we both found enlightening, comforting and provided answers from experience together with channelled answers without complications. The healing fair for us was a success and well attended and enjoyed. A special thank you goes out to all that helped especially our very own Jackie Winslow and Pauline Trout who manned the marquee and promoted us both. Not to forget our guides and angels who put forward the suggestions. Next year’s event is already booked and planned so please make sure you put that in your diary as there is something there for all. The dates for next year are 8th, 9th and 10th July 2016 and as usual is being held at The Secret World, Highbridge, Somerset.

Jane Fishlock & Pete Hamblin

The other major event for me this year was my wedding to my wonderful partner of seven years Peter Hamblin and for those who believe in magic please read on. Having lived together happily for years we had not really planned on getting married. Until one day we were visited by Sally Priddy who ran the Tithe Barn in Dunster. She had come to drop off some paperwork for workshops that I had run there. Over lunch she said how upset she was by a couple cancelling their wedding. Pete looked up and said what date was that. Sally said it was the 8th August 2015 and Pete just looked at me and said shall we have it. I then choked on my food in shock and agreed. So the date was set. We then told friends and one of them came back saying that the date in numerology worked out as 888 which is the sign for infinity.
