mist torWelcome to the JANONLIFE blog.

My name is Jan Stone and I’m a writer and freelance educator based in Glastonbury, England.

My journey through life has been driven by two major passions.
The first was an abiding desire (inspired initially, I think, by Douglas Adam’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy!) to understand the purpose of life – why we’re here, what we’re supposed to be doing now we are, and so forth. Neither religion nor science provided a satisfactory answer, so I began to look elsewhere.
That led to my second passion – a deep fascination with the intuition, understanding and ideas of a growing number of very special young people, who are variously called indigo, new energy or (by those who want to maintain the status quo) disordered. They appeared to understand life in ways I didn’t and I have spent many years listening and learning from them, and continue to do so.

In 2012 I published the book that had been forming itself from the combination of these twin obsessions for many years. It’s called Life: A Player’s Guide and it’s available as a paperback or Kindle book.

The book sets out my take on life, my answers to my own questions and I’m happy to say that others are beginning to discover it and find inspiration there too.

My blog posts reiterate, expand upon and meander around the edges of themes from the book and a few other things.  ‘Life’, after all, is a fairly broad canvas.  You are warmly invited to join my explorations and musings and to share your responses.

  1. Thank you again for reading my post, for commenting and for sharing one of your own. It’s a bit of a coincidence but I’m actually a few miles south of Bristol. I’ve been walking around Somerset and the local area and, from several places I’ve visited, Glastonbury Tor has always been in sight… I still intend to visit it again some day! 🙂

  2. I’ve wanted to get to Glastonbury Tor my entire life-I’ve even painted it ! 🙂 I’m connected somehow to the energy there-I’m a Brit myself so probably why that is but I’m so drawn to that spot-what a truly amazing history Glastonbury has…

    • It is an amazing place. I had to give up everything to move here, but have never been happier or more fulfilled. I took the photo above early one morning as I climbed through mist and clouds to the top of the Tor – which was in brilliant sunlight!

      I hope you get here one day 🙂

      • Oh so do I, I was in the U.K last year but unfortunately didn’t have the time to take the train from London to Sommerset, I can’t wait to get there one day 🙂

  3. Glad to find your blog. Thanks for coming by mine. I see we have some interests in common. About 2 1/2 years ago, I had a spiritual awakening while on a quest to help my sensitive son. Soon thereafter, I learned that my son is more than sensitive, he’s very special indeed. Looking forward to reading more!

    • I very much enjoyed your post. It will be interesting to compare the realisations we gain from working closely with these sensitive and exciting young people.
      I look forward to reading more of your posts, too.

  4. Thanks for finding my blog. For years I was told I was too sensitive. Now I embrace it and am exploring the possibilities. I also have a sensitive young daughter who teaches me much. I look forward to reading more of your writing.
    Love and peace –

      • Thank you for reading and commenting on my latest post. When you said it was just the message you needed for this morning, I decided to read your blog and was surprised how much you seem to go through life the same way as I do. I really enjoyed your story about the cottage and the unicorn. I am now following your blog and glad to have met you. Peace and Blessings

  5. Wow, Jan, what an amazing experience/life you are living. I’ve been reading some of your posts and what a fun way to explore time/space and the astral plane and all that. So far, Higgins has been teaching me what they describe as the wisdom information and haven’t yet moved fully into this.

    • I’m very much enjoying Higgins’ book, Cheryl and it confirms much of what I write about here. Yes, you’re right, it is a fun way to explore! There have been a few nasty bits, but they just throw the fun into sharper perspective 🙂

  6. Thank you for stopping by, Jan. I’m glad I found your blog, I’m fascinated by people who dare to delve deeper to understand our existence.

  7. Jan, are you interested in joining (via Skype) a meditation session I lead? We do a session with Higgins first, then they guide us in a meditation towards some aspect of world harmony. I realize we’d have a time difficulty but it might be fun to try.

      • I am on Pacific Standard Time. I think that makes you 8 hours ahead. My email is cherylorhiggins@hotmail.com and would enjoy setting something up that you could participate in. There is radioactive water from Fukushima in the water about 100 miles off the coast of California. Am planning a water cleansing meditation for that and hope you can be a part of it. If I arranged a group at 10am to noon PST would that work for you? A weekday?


    • Thanks so much. I truly appreciate those who take the trouble to read, like and comment on my ponderings and ramblings, let alone those who have nominated me for awards.
      Please forgive me if I don’t act on it immediately as time is rather short at the moment, but the warm glow is still there, knowing that I’ve been appreciated in this way.

  9. The word ‘synchronicity’ got me here! Let me explain: I wrote a post a day or two ago which included the words ‘Alice’ and ‘attic’. And yesterday I passed a shop in which there was a sign saying (amongst other things!) “Alice’s Attic …” that struck me so I mentioned it to another blogger/friend who said I ought to ‘ponder’ what it meant to which I replied that I thought the Universe was supporting and approving my path … SO … how did this bring me here: well, I decided to pay the newsageblog a visit and whilst I was reading her posts, I saw that your gravatar was there and I clicked on it – only to discover a post on synchronicity … Life’s funny like that! I have enjoyed reading many of your posts today: afterlife, Akasha, channelling – all very interesting!

    • I totally love synchronicity, Marie! How lovely that it bought us together here. I tend to follow it more and more, these days, feeling like you that it’s a sign from the Universe that this is a good way to go. I look forward to discovering your blog.

      • It would be lovely to see you there Jan! I feel as if I have been led to yours, because so many of your posts chime with thoughts that had been chasing around in my head: past lives, synchronicities and the like. You might find mine a little one-sided as I do tend to go on about my awful childhood, finding different ways of pretty much saying the same thing. Ah, but I see you’ve read some – thank you!

      • Ah, so the incidents ARE autobiographical. I had a horrible feeling they must be, from the clarity and brutal honesty that pervades them. You write brilliantly. I will read more when I get some free time. Very glad our paths have crossed. I’m sure we have things to learn from each other.
