YOUR FUTURE AWAITS WITH LYNNE FRANKS AND THE HUB AT NO 3

YOUR FUTURE AWAITS WITH LYNNE FRANKS AND THE HUB AT NO 3

Reading Time: 8 minutes

 

THE HUB AT NO 3 in Wincanton, Somerset, is a powerhouse of healing and alchemy, with Lynne Franks OBE as its heroic leader – heading up the unique fusion of magic and divine feminine, in true warrior fashion, within the DNA of its foundation.

Men are also very much a part of the picture, and both male visitors and mentors are welcomed to the Hub, as the male energy is equally respected as an essential ingredient of spiritual growth.

Lynne is famously known as the inspiration behind the dynamic but quirky PR guru Edina in Absolutely Fabulous played by Jennifer Saunders, but since her own fearless spiritual journey, Lynne has transformed into more of a Wise alchemist whose insight into each of her mentees is remarkable as she pinpoints their path and helps them rediscover their mission and self-worth.

I was determined to discover how accurate her reputation for personal growth had become and have recently returned from three days at The Hub in Wincanton, only to discover that Lynne really is a legend in her own lifetime, and that is quite separate from her Abs Fabs fame.

I arrived early to avoid the snow, and was welcomed with open arms by Lynne and her team who looked after me as soon as I arrived, but gave me the space to find time to meditate and soak up the healing atmosphere.  I also managed to chant my mantra of many years, Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, with Lynne who is a confirmed Buddhist.

The two buildings of The Hub have been restored and transformed by the passion of Lynne herself over almost two years, with all the trials and tribulations that come with a project of this magnitude, and which also involved a great deal of spiritual healing and cleansing, as it had been an old pub and drinking house.  I also heard through the local grape vine, that Lynne had created a bit of a stir in the area, even offending some of the local church going community with her ‘holistic’ messages.  Lynne has remained steadfast throughout as I understand, still respecting the people of the area, but sticking to her guns which is admirable and maintaining her integrity as always.

I had booked for three nights, and on arrival was taken to Rose room which was a lovely tranquil space with a cosy bed adorned with a duvet of Alpaca feathers – totally healing in itself.  I had the best night’s sleep in a long time, and this apparently is a shared experience of all the guests.

I then decided to sample all of the holistic treatments available as well as a special one-to-one experience with Lynne herself, which I was really looking forward to.

They started with the lovely Saskia Marjoram who administered Flower aromatherapy and healing with her incredible insight into flower essences.  I have to confess I was a little dubious at first, but quickly understood the relevance of the remedies, as I had used Rescue Remedy over the years, and was reassured by Saskia’s knowledge and confidence.  She seemed to pick the remedies associated to me personally, so I quickly knew where it was heading.

I then had a massage and facial with Helen, who I discovered is also a Reiki healer and clairvoyant, and as if this is not enough, completely tuned into me and identified areas of my body and indeed my life that needed attention.  She also explained more about the Hub, saying that they felt that the ‘healers’ and ‘witches’ are congregating there, which I found mesmerising and awe inspiring.  I have to agree, as spookily on the last day, I realised that my lower back pain had completely disappeared which was definitely down to the Reiki and so would really recommend this treatment too.

The one-to-one with Lynne Franks was life changing, as she not only tuned into me, but channelled my inner world and guided me into where my focuses should be.   She was pragmatic and honest as well as being sensitive and nurturing, and I know I have changed an essential part of my own self-discovery and future passage.

There was only one other guest at the Hub, who was a beautiful young woman from the corporate world who was there to redress the balance, and she and I built our vision boards together under the enchanted eye of our mentor.  The results were extraordinary with the vision boards reflecting our inner souls rather than skin deep illusions.

We all connected as Lynne had predicted and in many extraordinary ways, with shared and similar life experiences to help heal each other, and it made me feel that the Goddess was working her magic to bring us all together.  The food is organic, healthy and delicious and all part of the collective collaboration at meal times.

I had heard that when you visit the Hub, it facilitates the beginning of a new life and way of being, and incredibly I found all of this to be true.  Having said that, you have to be ready to change your life, and be open to all possibilities, and if you are – be brave, face your fears and visit Lynne Franks and her healers at The Hub at No 3, where your future awaits.

THE NEW PEOPLE’S PRINCESS – THE FAIRYTALE GOES ON

THE NEW PEOPLE’S PRINCESS – THE FAIRYTALE GOES ON

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

THE NEW PEOPLE’S PRINCESS – THE FAIRYTALE GOES ON by Dee Anderson – Editor in Chief

If I had written the script it couldn’t seem more imagined, giving the illusion of a far stretched soap opera.

Prince meets young female aristocrat over thirty years ago, they have a fantasy Wedding which ends in disaster with her untimely death due to the incessant pursuit of the Paparazzi and the philandering of her husband who is still in love with his ex-lover.

Cut to present day, and the offspring heir of the Prince and young Princess meets the girl of his dreams who is a beautiful Hollywood screen Actress, and happens to be the same age as his mother when she died.

You really couldn’t write it as they say, but we have and it is a reality –  but closer to a reality TV show.  Perhaps this is why the World have gone Harry and Meghan crazy and why even luke-warm Royalists like myself are mesmerised by the couple and have hung on their every word since their engagement six months ago.

They certainly appear like a couple who have fallen deeply in love and so far Meghan has not put a foot wrong, in spite of the wicked half Brother and Sister who have tried to scupper her happiness at every turn.

See how the story is playing out, with echoes of Cinderella or any other ancient fable or fairytale.  It is all in there – and dare I say Doria, even echoing aspects of the Fairy Godmother (even though Meghan’s real Mother) who seemed to emerge to save the day at the end of a hellish week for poor Meghan, with her estranged family and friends trying to relegate her back into oblivion by denouncing her credibility.

The Father of the Prince, in the form of Prince Charles was even pardoned for his earlier in discrepancies as he escorted his new daughter-in-law down the aisle in place of her Father, who had been unfortunately ill advised (probably by the rival siblings) to sell his story to the media, and was recovering from heart surgery

Harry has certainly been the Prince is shining ‘amour’ gazing adoringly at her throughout the reading of their vows at their Wedding in the Chapel in Windsor, and we all wept and cheered as they were finally pronounced Man and Wife.

There were certainly similarities of Diana in the outpouring of emotion from the crowds outside the Chapel and how the Nation tuned in and lined the Streets to catch a glimpse of the romantic pair.  In spite of the former disappointment and the sins of their fathers, as a Nation we forgave and forgot and hope that the future will hold more happiness for the magical pair.

It certainly seems that the Prince and Meghan are well matched, with their maturity, interests and powerful love for each other as beautifully announced by the charismatic American Preacher, Michael Curry.  Harry and Meghan want to change the world, and we all feel that they are capable of doing just that.

So does the story end here in the Happily Ever After, I certainly hope not, and I for one will be waiting with bated breath to be glued to the next spellbinding Series.

A Royal Wedding Whirlwind

A Royal Wedding Whirlwind

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Meghan Markle’s mother will meet the Queen today after a whirlwind 24 hours where she was introduced to Prince Charles and Camilla as well as William, Kate and their three children.

Doria Ragland, 61, is also supporting her daughter after an extraordinary week where her father Thomas pulled out and her estranged relatives landed en masse to cash in on her big day.

Ms Ragland has already enjoyed a ‘very jolly’ afternoon with Charles and Camilla this week with royal sources saying they got on famously.

Today Meghan’s yoga instructor mother, who is expected to walk her daughter down the aisle in her father’s absence, will meet her most esteemed new relative by marriage – the Queen – for tea at Windsor Castle, along with Harry and his fiancee.

The elegant 5* luxury country Cliveden House Hotel boasting 350 years of power, politics and parties at the Grade I listed stately home and the location of the notorious Profumo affair, one of the greatest scandals of the Cold War period – is where Meghan and her mother will stay tonight, along with a group of her closest girlfriends plus her dress designer and hairdresser. https://www.clivedenhouse.co.uk/

Harry, as is tradition, will say goodbye to wife-to-be and stay elsewhere with his best man, Prince William.

The princes have plumped for Coworth Park, a five-star country house a stone’s throw from Windsor and one that has been the venue for many a royal polo match and his first public kiss with Meghan. Quoted as being the scenic route to five-star bliss. Coworth Park offers idyllic relaxation in many guises, from a rural detox to an indulgent, romantic escape. Here you’ll find an experience to refresh every sense within the welcoming oasis of calm.  https://www.dorchestercollection.com/en/ascot/coworth-park/

THE SEXY HEADDRESS IS BACK – TRUE DEVOTION AND THE HEIGHT OF HAUTE COUTURE

THE SEXY HEADDRESS IS BACK – TRUE DEVOTION AND THE HEIGHT OF HAUTE COUTURE

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

As a truly committed devotee of the heady days of Princess Diana, from her peter pan collars and see through skirts, to the ever plunging necklines of the temptress, I vowed never to go there again after the tragedy of 1997.

Now with the butterfly advent of Meghan Markle, I am feeling those all too familiar pangs of fascination, but vowed not to be swept along in the same way with her obvious flair for fashion.  After all she isn’t Princess Diana, and I am older now so don’t need a Royal  Fashion Icon to follow.

But here I am admiring her style – and particularly her head ware.  Yes, Meghan’s berets are becoming quite a fashion symbol in familiar circles of my peers – a sweeping statement you may think.  But the beret was and has been fashionable for several decades, and even centuries.

Le Beret was worn originally in the Béarnaise countryside of France – usually in black and red.  It has certainly become the staple fashion ‘look’ of  France along with gauloises and the Breton striped jumper.

Celebrities have historically played a role in making the beret popular. It became a fashionable accessory in Hollywood as far back as the 1930s after being worn casually askew by a number of famous movie actresses or ‘A’ listers as we would refer to them today.

From Lauren Bacall to Julia Roberts in more recent times, you can see why as this sexy but classy headdress is both flattering and highly haute couture.

Over the years too it has appeared in some High Street outlets, but not seriously featured, except perhaps as a passing ‘wink’ to more beret centric days in Fashion.

So it is no wonder our Meghan, and did you clock the word ‘our’ – yes already adopted and addicted – has made such an impact, because as well as marrying everybody’s favourite Prince, she also has the knack of carrying off an outfit and putting it on the map.  So with that in mind, I am throwing caution to the wind, getting back on the treadmill of Meghan mania, and am in search of some spectacular head gear – the beret is back and so am I.

GETTING SHIRTY THIS CHRISTMAS – IT REALLY IS ALL WHITE

GETTING SHIRTY THIS CHRISTMAS – IT REALLY IS ALL WHITE

Reading Time: 4 minutes

When Meghan Markle stepped out with her bo Prince Harry last month at the Invictus Games, the World took a gasp of relief. Firstly because their much publicised romance was on every tabloid’s lips and secondly we were all dying to see what she would wear as their union was consolidated and announced to the World.

A ‘husband’ white shirt with ripped jeans was both a relief and a revelation, as she looked cool, fresh and confident, which let’s face it is the most important aspect of retaining one’s identity. Meghan achieved that in abundance, sticking close to her Californian roots whilst not bucking the fashion altogether as she donned a very expensive pair of designer sunglasses.

So back to the white shirt. I have always been a fan of a crisp white shirt worn in a slouch mode with rolled up sleeves and perhaps nipped in with a low slung belt. But there are a multitude of ways to make it work for you.

If you are going from the Board Room to a party this Christmas, you can adapt during the day with a black or navy jacket or blazer and then vamp it up for evening with jewellery like a choker, sparkling brooch and earrings.

A white shirt can also be ‘customised’ with sequins sown into the lapels or collar and matched with skinny jeans or sparkling leggings and high heels to complete the outfit.

If you are struggling with the ‘I don’t have anything to wear’ syndrome, which is common this time of the year, and if you have a dinner party or posh work do. Then join the boys in a smart black suit (even hire one from Burtons) and wear a white shirt with a tie or black bow and DJ. This is not just ultra-flattering, it really makes a statement, and you will be the envy of everyone in the room.

So you see, the little white shirt really is the new black dress.
