About Me

I’m Mo Davies, a Reiki Master, writer, artist, Tarot reader, dabbler in astrology and all-round crazy crone and wild woman. As I’m 66, I reckon I’m entitled to be as raucous as I want t be, it’s one of the perks of becoming a Community Elder.

It’s taken a long time for me to realise I’m a writer and all-round communicator.  I’ve loved inter-acting with people, writing and communicating in any way possible all my life and now I realise it’s a gift and talent for which I’m profoundly thankful and grateful.  Above all I love to sing, dance, hug and celebrate the fact I’ve got through to 66 and I’m ALIVE!

It’s only by listening to my own inner voice that I’ve come home to myself as a writer and creative artist.  In that process I’ve gone through many health challenges which have led me into healing and spiritual paths I never would otherwise have encountered. I have worked with reflexology, metamorphosis, educational kinesiology, cranio-sacral therapy, flower essences, understanding dreams, Reiki and, of course, the stone spirits in my journey to well-being.  

My experiences have led me to the belief that the heart, not the head, is our window to true healing by returning to our own personal Song embedded in our souls .I still dance (a sort of slow salsa) with fibromyalgia, which is somewhat erratic and causes mobility problems.  It’s why I work from home and why I’ve created this space on the Web to offer my views on art, tarot, astrology, social justice and passion in all its forms to encourage you to dance with life as it’s meant to be for you as a perfectly wonderful individual.

I am passionate about art and writing. My journey to this understanding and peace with myself has come through my affinity with rocks, stones and crystals which have inspired my creativity.  The idea of myself as an artist with creative ability still fills me with wonder.  It wasn’t until I went to a mandala workshop when I was 48 and created a healing painting for myself that I realized I see the world as symbols and colours, rather than real-life. Understanding that I see people and the world as colours and symbols has helped me recognize my own individual path of creativity and inspired my art work.

I am also writing my book as a blog which is focused on my own healing journey and travels through personal and spiritual growth.  My book blog can be found at:

I have presented workshops on:

* Mandalas for Self-Healing

* Crystal Healing

* Colours, Crystals and Healing

* Live Your Dream

* Understanding Dreams

* Reiki 1, 2, 3 & Master/Teacher Level.

 Here are some of the comments of my former students:

“I feel Maureen brought out the best in me.”

Maureen is an excellent teacher. First time I have ever taken part in a group session. I found it extremely helpful.”

“Maureen is very approachable and very easy to talk and relate to, and gets her point across very well.”

“Maureen is a wonderful and very beautiful person. She deserves only the best in life and only good should be drawn to her.” 

“An excellent presenter.”

“The best thing I have ever done.”

“Maureen is non-judgemental, open and easy to listen to, and guides each participant toward more clear views.”

“Words escape me. It been extremely the most positive experience I’ve shared in a long time.”

    It’s up to you if you’d like it but it’s basically a thank you for your support! I really like your comments and enjoy your blog too!

  31. Thank you for following my blog ! You have vibrant pictures of flowers here.

  32. Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike :)

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.
    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…


    • Thanks, Uncle Spike, good to hear from you and to be in touch with some else with Turkish connections.

      • If things deteriorate further here, we might join you, lol

      • Yes, He Who Must Be Obeyed does have delusions of grandeur, doesn’t it? Shame to see Turkey sliding towards dictatorship. It will be interesting to see what happens here in North Cyprus as the recent talks between the North and the South have, well, slipped into the Mediterranean and drowned again.

      • Wouldn’t life be boring without all these shenanigans though? (no, quite nice and stress-free actually I suspect)

      • I must be honest, it would be nice to drive to South Cyprus without the rigmarole of border crossings, extra car insurance (expensive) for the south, and hope to be treated with politeness instead of aggro!


    • Fantastic, MM, thanks so much. I’m really impressed, you’ve got how I feel really well. Love the portraits – going to post them on FB and on my blog. Delighted!

  34. So glad you visited my crow blog. You and I both made it to our 60s and are celebrating our freedom to be us. Batgurrl

  35. Thanks for following my blog. Love the artwork! Will definitely be back for a visit! :)

  36. …I will enjoy your blog! Best of the day! :))

  37. If I hadn’t already realised it from your comment on my ‘shell-like’ post, this tells me you’re a girl after my own heart. Bless you for the follow.

  38. Hi. I was wondering if you would be interested in doing a Pinpal project with Kate & I. I’m not sure what the best method of contacting you is. I’m on twitter at @evadiva0516. or my email is holley4734@gmail.com. :) The basic idea is to have several people do a small piece of art for a bigger project.

    • Hi, Holley – Replied via e-mail, I am on Twitter but more by accident than design and I’m not too savvy about using it. Thanks for the invite! Consider this a “yes”!

      • Yay!! I will send you an email with the details. :) We’re still working out some of it but I think we have it under control. :)
