You do it because you feel better when you do

When I first started meditating more than 30 years ago I found the whole concept fascinating and I wanted to learn more. As I searched I discovered that there were all different ways of meditating, including going away for 10days and spending that time in silence. As I had four children, was working full-time and paying the bills was our main focus 10 days away didn’t seem like an option. I must say that the silence didn’t appeal to me at all as I had spent too much time unable to speak when I went to boarding school at the […]

What a difference a week makes

  This time last week I was in the coronary care ward at St Vincent’s hospital.   I had been taken there by ambulance after going to the nearest medical centre with severe chest pains.   As it was Easter when I was admitted to the hospital I had to wait until the Tuesday to have the extra tests needed to check for any damage or obstruction to my heart.   It was a tense time waiting.   Meditating and ThetaHealing is what kept me sane… and focusing on a positive outcome   The ‘all clear’ was a huge relief.

Don’t ‘build a bridge’ ~ dig up the foundations instead

I don’t know about you but I remember people telling me to ‘build a bridge and get over it’ (one of my all time hated sayings), change your thoughts, focus on the positive etc, etc … I understand what they mean now (and I still don’t agree). But back then in my BEFORE life (before ThetaHealing®) I had a negative soundtrack going on in my head 24/7 that I could not shut up. Much as I hated it, I seem incapable of stopping it.   Years later when I was in the recovery phase I acknowledged that the first thing I always […]

A ritual to end 2016

This is a ritual that I use on New Year’s Eve and also my birthday.   Everyone talks about writing down resolutions or goals for each New Year.   But as we know you can’t fit new clothes in your wardrobe if it’s full of the old clothes that no longer fit you. So we need to clean it out first and create space.   One of the many universal laws is The Universe hates a vacuum, so it will fill any space or void.   So before you send your list for manifesting out into the ethers you need […]

No one can make you feel anything without your consent

  “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” That is a famous quote by the late Eleanor Roosevelt and one of my all time favourites. When I write it with chalkpen on the picture frame behind my chair in the clinic I put a line through inferior and write anything above it. Because that is a fact. No one can make you feel anything without your consent. They can’t make you feel happy, they can’t make you feel sad, they can’t make you feel angry, nor any of the thousands of other feelings or emotions. What happens […]

I returned to the place of my birth and found a part of me I’d left behind

My husband & I have been away overseas for exactly one month , we left on 17th July and returned on 17th August. Over lunch we have been discussing how ‘full on’ the trip was, with very little down time. I am an introvert and I need alone time to allow me to re-charge. This was difficult because we were surrounded by people who wanted to ‘do’ things. There was no time for afternoon naps so whenever I could I escaped into a book. Coming home has been like heaving a huge sigh and re-enforces yet again why I love […]
