about

Hi, I’m Natalie.

Thank you for being here!

I write what’s on my heart because it’s all I’ve ever really known how to do. Before I could write actual words, my Mum told me I would sit and draw squiggles on the lines in her notebooks, and as soon as I learned to read I was seldom found without my head in a book.

My hope is that my writing will offer others what I spent many years looking outside of myself for; space, simplicity, honesty, and confirmation that I could trust myself.

I write to remind myself and my reader that it’s safe to slow down (even when it hurts or feels scary), to breathe, to reconnect with our hearts, and be in our bodies. My writing intersects everything from the joy of beauty for beauty’s sake, to the insanity of the human experience.

Writing helps me make sense of a world I often don’t understand. It has helped me piece together my broken heart when I’ve felt lost or adrift, and my hope is that it can offer these same experiences for my reader.

I celebrate the light, but I also embrace the darker parts of life; grief, loss, perceived failures, struggles, and the moments that unexpectedly plunge us into the depths of our vulnerability (often without a life raft).

I value an organic, divinely timed way of living, the feminine, beauty, artistry, creativity and the Sacred, unconditional LOVE, innate wisdom, FREEDOM and intuition, and I’ll never tire of exploring the eternal mystery of the Soul.

It’s my intention to, as much as I can, continually create the space to listen to my own Soul more deeply, to keep having the courage to shake off my conditioning, pursue what’s true for me, and have that reflected in everything I say and do.

Maybe my words can help you do the same, or perhaps just offer you a little comfort, grace, hope or courage when you need it the most.

From my heart to yours,

Natalie x
