I’m Lyn Thurman and this is my millionth attempt to write a fabulous ‘about me’ page that tells you what I do, what I can do for you plus a few quirky facts thrown in so you’ll find me interesting and adorable.
The ‘experts’ tell you that this is what this page is for (making me interesting and adorable) but that feels all wrong (hence the million attempts – things are harder when they don’t feel right) so I’ll just ramble about a bit. I’m good at that.
I’m a long-term blogger, writer and published author. I have a special interest in the divine feminine, Her stories and how, as women, we can tap into the Goddess energy to make our own lives better.
Life is too short to be stuck in Mundania. Trust me, I’ve been there and it’s as dull as it sounds. Modern life has a way of keeping us stuck into patterns and situations that dull our sparkle. I believe that by unleashing our inner goddesses, we can turn life from mundane to magical. It’s a journey (and I’m a work in progress but aren’t we all?).
Those ‘experts’ I mentioned also tell you to find a niche and write for that audience. I’ve tried and failed at that because it doesn’t feel right (I work by feeling, as you can tell). We’re multifaceted beings and I’m not happy when I restrict my interests. Isn’t our mission on this beautiful planet to expand and be whole? I like to think so.
If I have to condense my mission in this world then it’s this: my mission is to bring divine feminine gifts into a world that’s gone crazy on masculine energy.
I love to write, snap photos, make art, craft and cook.
I’m a published author; my book The Inner Goddess Revolution was published in 2015 by O Books and I’ve self-published various smaller publications through the years.
I have a workshop on writing: The Write Elements.
I’ve worked as a freelance editor for a major player in online content plus I founded my own e-magazine, the Soul Path magazine.
I’m featured in Wild And Precious: A Guide To Loving Yourself, Following Your Bliss And Changing The World.
I created the Sea Whispers Oracle deck (self-published).
I also encourage you to set creative by creating your own inner goddess oracle.
I’m an intuitive. If I don’t follow my intuition then life ends up going haywire.
I read and teach tarot.
I have a ridiculous amount of tarot and oracle decks. Ridiculous, I say!
I used to have a popular vegetarian food blog and then I stopped writing (and cooking) because I was too busy. Stupid. Really stupid.
I neglected nourishment and guess what? My weight ballooned, IBS happened, my stress levels rocketed and my hair fell out.
My journey is to holistically nourish myself and hopefully inspire you in the process.
I’m a passionate EFT tapper (that’s emotional freedom technique) and I’ve used it for about a decade now. It’s one of those things that looks a little weird but delivers a punch (not literally). It helps release blocked emotions, reset beliefs and can even help with physical symptoms. It’s really rather magical.
I believe looking after the mind-body-spirit is key to healing.
Sharing our truths and telling our stories is powerful healing juju. We need to do more of that.
I have certificates and diplomas in EFT, reiki, Rohun therapy, nutrition and hypnosis.
I’m a mix of woo-woo, new age and good ol’ fashioned spirituality with a healthy dose of the divine feminine thrown in for good measure.
I have a membership circle, The Inner Goddess Circle, for lovely ladies (and men) who want to explore the Goddess energy and leave Mundania behind (it’s a mix of spirituality and self-help).
The interesting and adorable bits
Well, probably not but you can’t blame a girl for trying.
I am a little obsessed with the sea. I moved from London to the south coast in 2007 and being near the sea soothes my soul. I take photos whenever I’m down on the beach and I post them on Instagram or my Facebook page (with the hashtag #seatherapy)
I’m a crazy dog lady. I don’t own my own dogs any more but I dog sit for other people and I LOVE it.
I’ve been tied to a maypole and had Morris dancers shake their sticks at me (and I’ve stood in the middle of a crop circle – but not with Morris dancers).
I swam a mile non-stop.
My very first ambition was to be a nurse. I’d like to tell you it was to help people but my reason was to walk along corridors, preferably with a clip board, and look important.
I bought my first camera when I was eleven. It was a disk camera, which at the time was a bold move away from 35mm films. It didn’t catch on (you’ve probably never heard of it). I still love taking photos.
I gave birth to my daughter at home, totally naturally, with the help of a wonderful midwife. A few hours later, I took her for her first adventure to pick my sons up from school.
I’m a qualified manicurist & nail technician. I’ve bitten my nails for most of my life and I hate nail extensions.
I met my husband through an online tarot reading.
I travelled to Greece by myself when I was 14 to stay with my pen friend that I met when I was nine.
I went through a period of having prophetic dreams about plane crashes and train wrecks. Thankfully, that doesn’t happen any more.
I’ve worked in France and attended school in Austria.
Buck Rogers was my first pretend boyfriend (not that I’ve made a habit of having pretend boyfriends).
I’ve recently developed a love of olives and, this is absolutely true, I think I prefer them to chocolate.
My sun sign is Pisces, my moon is in Cancer, and I have Aquarius rising.
