Changing your mind

It can be so hard to admit that we’ve pursued a path that isn’t quite right for us, can’t it?  Especially if this path has been rather publicly taken.  Sometimes it can seem as though the world values decision and action above all else.  “Pushing on through” is the recommended course, while reflection and ultimately…Continue Reading

What’s the point of the Reiki Precepts?

When you first learn Reiki, you will be given a wealth of information.  You will be taught about the history, how to offer it to yourself and others and, of course, you will be attuned to it. You will also be taught about the Reiki Precepts. What exactly is a ‘precept’?  A dictionary definition reads…Continue Reading

“You’re over-reacting!”

“You’re over-reacting!” Someone in your life has just said or done something that has pressed your buttons in a big way – triggering a response that’s over the top for the small thing they just said or did… What on earth just happened?  You know you’re over-reacting to this but the feelings are huge, overwhelming.

It’s something I often talk about with…Continue Reading

A “Proper” Christmas?

“Christmas”… the word alone can strike fear into the most stalwart heart.  The hustle.  The bustle.  The planning, the presents, the food.  The family negotiations that would take a United Nations peacekeeper to the limits of their tolerance.  Sound familiar? Woven into most people’s Christmas scenarios are many “shoulds and oughts” – multiple expectations about…Continue Reading

LOVE myself? Are you kidding?

When I think about love, I think about our darling dog, Barty, who died a year ago.  My son’s description of Barty is that he was “simple”.  Not that he was a stupid dog; not at all.  Rather, he had simple needs – for nourishment and care, walks, baths and visits to the vet.  And,…Continue Reading
