If you've had enough of Deliciously Ella, Helmsley and Helmsley and even Jamie Oliver, this is the blog for you! Maverick Priest, Stand-Up Comedian and Messy Cook Maggy Whitehouse has had enough of fake food pictures. This is real cooking — down and dirty and scrumptiously yummy.

10. In the absence of fear, healing must take place.
We are vibrational beings, we are children
of a Creator and we are meant to experience joy and be creative. Every religion at its root believes the same - when it's not throwing rocks at other people for believing the same thing differently.
God experiences reality through us. God is not manifest in the world except through us. Mainly, we insist on putting an infinite God in boxes. God doesn’t fit in boxes
so whatever God we may have in a box is really nothing like the whole picture. And might be feeling just a tad uncomfortable.
So it’s all really about how we feel and
it’s so easy to let what the Australians call ‘orneryness’ to prevail. In my
case, it was exacerbated by a lot of fear and some bad relationship stuff but
everyone has their own reason for tolerating a certain amount of low-level
discontent without even realising it.
Trouble is, that low-level discontent
pervades the vibration of the body and, as you are your body’s God, and because you are the manifestation of the Great Creator, you can't blame both for thinking that you are actually sending out instructions.
Which means that Nigels (or Clarissas, or Clauds) will turn
up eventually in order to get our attention. In my case, Nigel is in my family’s genes – my Dad had it though he never told me and it's also likely that my great grandmother had it too. It’s a ‘possible’ gene
mutation which gets switched on or not.
All this stuff about the human genome
project that’s got loads of wealthy ladies cutting both their boobs off because they ‘carry the faulty gene’ for breast cancer is both helpful and unhelpful. Yes, they may have stopped that particular dis-ease in their breasts but it’s their
vibration that will trigger something physical changing not the mere fact that the gene
exists. You can live quite happily with a possibly faulty gene for 100 years. Just don't trigger it.
If what they’ve done gives them confidence and happiness then that's great. But for those who can’t afford a double mastectomy and who are now fretting even more, it's a massive additional stress. The good thing is that you can turn the whole negative vibration thing around now. You don’t
need the chop. You need the change of thought and feeling.
In fact, a health crisis is simply asking
you ‘How much do you really want to
live? And how committed are you to getting happy now so that you can find a new purpose? How happy are you willing to be?'
For you, it could be diabetes,
fibromyalgia, getting in a car accident ... the options for your body to go 'attention please!' are endless. Huge
amounts of people are going down the cancer route. Cancer is when things that should die don’t die and start attacking
you instead. If thoughts of resentment and anger don’t die ... well guess what?
Their vibration starts to work in the physical.
‘The cancer personality’ is the one who
takes care of others, who is very nice, who works hard, who puts others first
and who, somewhere, deep inside has a child yelling “what about me?” Eventually that child is going to
do anything it can to try and get your attention.
So please, if you’re reading this blog and
you’re healthy but there’s an undercurrent of resentment or something like that
within you, start doing something about it now. Getting happy is a lot easier before you have to deal with fear.
When I lived in Birmingham, I used to go to
the German Christmas Market in Victoria Square; it was an interesting sparkle
of an experience but there really never was much that I wanted to buy—or eat,
for that matter. So when we moved here, to Devon, and I discovered
that Exeter had a Christmas Market in the Cathedral Square, I wasn’t all that
keen...but I do like to get Christmas cards from the cathedral and you don’t
have much of an option if you want to visit St. Peter’s in November or
December; you can’t get there without encountering the market. And what a market it is! So far it’s my
favourite. Ever. Okay, I’ve only been to about six and I’m going to Italy next
week so I’ll report back on the Florence and Lucca Christmas Markets which may
be stunningly incredible but, trust me, if I like a Christmas Market, then it’s
a good one. I’m a total Christmas shopping cynic. How much of a cynic? So much so that I
don’t agree with the concept of chocolate Advent calendars. Advent is about
Top Tips: The Law of Attraction 101. Have you ever wondered what that Law of Attraction that's talked of so often in Spiritual and Holistic circles might be about? Here's a beginner's guide. ·Whatever you think about you begin to create in reality. This is the Law of Karma in action – what you put out you get back. What goes around, comes around. Nowadays it’s known as The Law of Attraction — similar vibrations are attracted to similar vibrations. ·This is often thought to be a ‘New Age’ thing but it’s very old — and a definite part of the Judaeo-Christian teachings. The Gospel of John starts with, ‘In the beginning was the Word.’ Our words are our thoughts in action and they create reality. Deuteronomy 30:18 sums it up: “I call heaven and earth to bear witness on your behalf this day that I have placed before you life and death; blessing and cursing. Therefore choose life that you and what you sow shall live.” We are choosing what to think every second — even if that choice …
I'm asked quite often how to cleanse spaces, whether they are at home or the office. So here is my Church's recipe for Holy Water and the blessing we use for spaces. It works — there are many other ways of blessing a space also so you should choose the one that resonates for you. If the Christian symbology doesn't work, then it's not for you and that's fine...The wording says 'priest' but you are the priest if you are saying the prayers. The Blessing of Holy WaterFill a jug with water and place about a tablespoon of salt in a small bowl.Where there is a + make the sign of the cross with your hand over the salt or the water.Over the salt say the following:I cleanse you, creature of salt, by the living God, by the holy É God, by the omnipotent É God, that you may be purified from all evil influences, in the name of the most Holy One, who is lord of angels and humanity, and who fills all the worlds with his majesty and glory.
