Hello and Welcome to Lucretia’s Words
Welcome to my website. I’m an author, intuitive mentor and communications and engagement specialist. It’s an interesting combination. The services I offer on this website are designed to help people live, share and uncover their story.
I love working with people who are passionate and want to share their passion with the world. You know the people I mean; the ones who want to make the world better, approach things differently, create a different life, help others and so on. They are the clients I love the most. I believe everyone has the capacity to be that client because we all have unique gifts and a special purpose for our time on this planet. I love working with people who want to uncover their Mission and live the life they were born to live.
I’ve been a professional writer for more than 20 years in the not-for-profit, government, small and medium enterprise, tertiary education and membership sectors. My career has included roles in communications, engagement, marketing, online strategy, and media and event management. I’ve also lectured and tutored undergraduate students at Queensland University of Technology in subjects ranging from public relations techniques through to public relations planning. My LinkedIn profile provides more detailed information about my experience which has included drafting content for websites and social media platforms, speeches, fact sheets, resumes and much more. Please visit Writing and Professional Services if you are seeking assistance with copywriting, blogging, conducting interviews or revitalising your resume.
The Men I’ve Almost Dated is my first book and chronicles my misadventures as a 30-something single woman without a roadmap. From painful separation and divorce through to questionable decision making, lackluster sexual adventures and downright bizarre male behaviour, my memoir is equal parts heartbreaking, hilarious and incredibly honest.
Described as Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Sex and the City with a dash of Eat, Pray, Love, my story will have you cringing, laughing aloud and shaking your head with disbelief from start to finish. It’s available through online booksellers in print and digital format. Buy the book>
Lucy and Life Blog
Lucy and Life initially began as a commentary on my slightly dysfunctional single life as a 30-something woman. I’ve spent a lot of time stumbling around in the dark when it comes to romantic relationships. Sometimes I think get it right. Other times I get it horribly and embarrassingly wrong. Occasionally I just give up and flee the building. I’ve shared some of my uncomfortable dating/men-related stories in this blog. More recently, my blog has broadened to include stories from other parts of my life. It’s about love, life, relationships and everything else. It includes my perspectives on intuition, psychic insights, writing, self-awareness and much more. My writing helps me process my life. I also know my stories and those of my friends help other people feel more normal and less alone. The Lucy and Life blog is about my life, your life and the crazy experiences that challenge us and help us grow. It’s helped me find my voice and I hope, in a small way, it inspires you to find yours too.
My Intuitive Gifts
I’m a psychic channel. That means I see, feel and sometimes even smell what many people might describe as weird freaky things. These ‘things’ can include people who’ve passed over and the energies of other people, animals, the earth and the Universe. Sometimes I just know stuff about people because the Universe has chosen to deliver that information to me. I’m not a mind reader. But if you’re upset I might know about it before you tell me. That’s just how I roll. If you’re thinking I’m some middle-aged, vegan, Thai-dye wearing, sandal-clad hippie you’d be wrong. Middle-aged is fifty as far as I’m concerned. So I’m not there yet. Yes, I did proudly own a pink Thai-dye shirt in the eighties but I wouldn’t be seen dead in one now. I’ve also spent most of my adult life dressed in suits working in the corporate world. And flat shoes aren’t my thing; I’m a stiletto kind of girl.
I use my intuition every day and in every part of my life. I also help others uncover and begin to use their intuition through my Intuitive Mentoring programs. Everyone has intuition and it can help you live a more balanced and fulfilling life. I always feel so humbled to help people in this way and to be part of their journey towards greater self-awareness and connection to their inner knowing. This journey helps us to live a more authentic and joyful life that is alignment with our personal brand and who we truly are. I look forward to working with you and reading your thoughts on my blog, Facebook or Instagram. Until then, always remember, you were born to live a unique and extraordinary life.
