  • Sometimes Life Throws You A Curved Ball

    Peace Harmony and Joy Sep 12, 2018

    Sometimes Life Throws You A Curved Ball Sometimes life throws us a curved ball which makes us take a look at where we are. I was recently off work due to hurting my back. When I returned to work it was obvious that my back was not up to sitting in a chair all day. Due to this I decided to leave work and my last day will be on 31st December 2018. I will start 2019 in a totally different place as I have decided to become a Full time Therapist.The interesting thing was for years I thought my back would not stand up to seeing clients all day. When I did the maths I found that I did not require to do this. I love reiki and very often am found chatting for up to an hour after a therapy session. I decided I did not wish this to change. I do not want to be rushing a client out to see the next one.I was speaking to a client at the weekend who asked me when she should return. I told her what I tell everyone- when they decide they need more reiki. In the past I have had contact with a company who[…]

  • Living In The Moment

    Peace Harmony and Joy Aug 23, 2018

    Living In The Moment Today I was walking beside work and saw brown leaves falling from the trees. These are the first I have seen that shows that Autumn is on it's way. We are almost three quarters of the way through 2018 and for most of us it has gone quickly. This year I decided not to have any New Year Resolutions. I often find we break them quite quickly anyway. I decided instead that I would take the year as it came and enjoy doing what I do. Now you may think that is not good enough, but so many opportunities came my way and I feel that I have done more this year than in previous years.Sometimes when we put ourselves under pressure to do or not do a specific thing, all that happens is we feel weak and that we have let ourselves down, when something stops us taking the action. Instead, if your aim was to lose weight for instance, you may find doing things on the spur of the moment and being happy will do one of two things. It will either stop you worrying about your weight because you are out and about enjoying yourself and having[…]

  • Beautiful Colours, Beautiful Thoughts

    Peace Harmony and Joy Aug 13, 2018

    Beautiful Colours, Beautiful Thoughts What are you grateful for today? I  love the fact that the garden is full of colour. Looking out my front window I can see trees and hedges with different colours of green. In the  side garden I have orange Crocosmia, pink Roses, yellow Polyanthus, purple Lavender, pink / red Honeysuckle. I also have bushes that have flowered and now have the green leaves on them, and that's just in my side garden!Inside my house I have trailing plants that are great for putting out Oxygen as well as good to look at.  If I look out my back garden then I am grateful to see all the plants that a neighbour planted for me including a fir tree that I love.I have barely left my home in the last few weeks due to hurting my back but I think as long as you are surrounded by colour it can make life more interesting. Sometimes you may not be able to do all that you want but it makes me happy if I can appreciate things around me.  Even if you don't have a garden, plants in the home are good for your health so why not grow a few[…]

  • Change Your Mindset, Change Your Life

    Peace Harmony and Joy Jul 26, 2018

    Change Your Mindset, Change Your Life Today I want to talk  to you about the different types of people that may be in your life. If you have read The Celestine Prophecy you will be aware of 4 personality types. They are:1.The Intimidator2. The Aloof3.The Interrogator4. The Poor me I'm sure we all know someone who is an Intimidator. They control you by being in charge and making you feel fearful. They intimidate you and are generally not nice to be around. Perhaps if you don't do what they want you may lose your job! You may be unlucky to work around this type of personality. The solution is to try and remove them from your life.The Aloof person attracts your energy to bring attention to themselves then withdraws. How about these people that post on social media that something terrible has happened or they are at the hospital but don't say any more? They then have every one posting "How are they? What's wrong?". Of couse you are left hanging without getting an answer. You might also ask how their day was and the only response you get from them is "Fine".The Interrogator can be similar to the Intimadator but makes you question yourself.  They are[…]

  • Teaching Children Meditation and Howto be Confident

    Peace Harmony and Joy Jul 12, 2018

    Teaching Children Meditation and Howto be Confident This week I had a special visitor. Up till 5 years ago I hosted Foreign Language students in my home. One of my students from 9 years ago was visiting Edinburgh this week and dropped in to see me. He was someone I always remembered, as when he arrived he brought me a purple scarf and on leaving he bought me The Reiki Bible with lovely words from him inscribed inside. He was a teacher and I always thought his students were so lucky to have him. While he was staying with me, he kept buying books and eventually sent 2 very large boxes full back to Spain. All purchased with his own money. Roll on 9 years and he is now the Deputy Head teacher of his school. He also told me they have introduced Mindfulness forhis students from age 3 onwards. Like me, he believes if you teach them early it will set them up for life.He is also aware that children learn more from interactive actions rather than sitting learning only from books. We discussed that children pick up languages much faster when they are younger. Each year his school brings in a teacher from another country[…]

  • REIKI - THE WHITE LIGHT OF CHANGE

    Peace Harmony and Joy Jun 19, 2018

    REIKI - THE WHITE LIGHT OF CHANGE I was just filling in a questionaire about my business. It really made me think what I was doing with it. I will explain what I mean by that. Reiki to me is my life but when I started down this journey, I remember saying to my teacher at first  that I was never going to treat another person. Instead I was doing it just for me. Of course that did not happen lol.The next stage, when I trained to Teacher level, I again said this was just for me. I also said I would train 1 person only, which was my daughter. I remember him laughing at me as he just said "Watch this space!" So you see, I never meant to make reiki my business. For me it was a way to change my life for the better. The energy has a way of making things happen. Not only did I train my daughter, but I also trained her husband plus two of my Grandchildren! First after level 2 I was asked to work in a therapy shop at weekends and I found I loved working with people. Then about 9 months after teacher level training I was telling[…]

  • Reiki Awareness week 2018

    Peace Harmony and Joy Jun 10, 2018

    Reiki Awareness week 2018 This week from Saturday  9th June is Reiki Awareness Week. Have you heard of or had a session of reiki before? What did you think of it? What is it?Reiki is Universal Energy. One of the misconceptions about reiki is that the practitioner is using their own energy. This is not correct. In actual fact you can find giving reiki to another actually gives you more energy! This is because the energy flows through the practitioner to the recipient.Reiki helps your mental attitude and can make you more positive in your thoughts. It can help you de - stress and also relieve pain. As I wrote on my Facebook page today it can also help people who are terminally ill to pass over more comfortable. What is there not to like about reiki?One of the great things about reiki is once you are attuned to the energy it is with you for life. How cool is that. I even had a student that had not used it for 7 years and was surprised to find it still worked when she called upon it to help after an injury. Even better is you do not need to carry a therapy couch[…]

  • Children's meditation

    Peace Harmony and Joy May 25, 2018

    I put this together for my Grandchild after I made  my first one for her. She is 9. My Grandson who is 13 said the first one made him so relaxed that he would pay for it. I am taking him at his word and decided it would be lovely to make personalised meditations for other children. These can include things, places or animals that the individual child loves. If this resonates with you then please get in touch.I think in todays world it is too easy for children to get stressed. Teaching them to Meditate and go into a quiet space can help them.Children's meditation

  • PROUD TO BE SCOTTISH

    Peace Harmony and Joy May 21, 2018

    PROUD TO BE SCOTTISH Tonight I am so proud to be Scottish. I have just been for a visit to the Social Bite Village for the Homeless. Social Bite started a few years ago by  two people opening a cafe in Rose Street, Edinburgh where people would buy a coffee or meal and leave money to Pay It Forward for a Homeless person to enable them to get something to eat and drink too.  They soon started employing homeless people and have now opened up more cafe's in Scotland and a restaurant also in Edinburgh. After speaking to Homeless people and hearing the same story over and over again they decided they could action change. Last year they had CEO's who slept outside to raise funds. This allowed them to get some tiny houses built.  It was meant to take 4 years but instead  in under a year they had them built plus so much more was done.They organised Sleep In The Park where 8000 people slept in Princes Street Gardens and raised an enormous amount of money. With the help of the Cyrenians who have great knowledge of homelessness, and Edinburgh Council who have  loaned them a piece of land, they have now[…]

  • Having The Confidence To Change

    Peace Harmony and Joy Apr 29, 2018

    Having The Confidence To Change I was reading today about people leaving their jobs and feeling lost as they left workmates behind.  The main thing that I took on board was to make sure you have a life outside work. Those who do many events with workmates can feel more adrift after leaving that workplace. Work should not be all your life is about. It is to pay for you to have a life.I was sitting in my garden reading this and saw a plant which made me think. Do you feel you are in the wrong place? My plant was planted 22 years ago and never flourished until it was finally moved last year by my wonderful neighbour Billy. Look at it now with all the new growth on it. If you feel stunted where you are then open your eyes. Life is all about change. Perhaps it's time for you to make a move. Don't feel you have to stay in a stuck situation where you do not feel happy. If you cannot make a move now, then start to put things in place so you can plan for your future. Learn to do things that will make you happy outside of work[…]

  • Synchronicity - The Universe Is Listening to you!

    Peace Harmony and Joy Mar 10, 2018

    Synchronicity - The Universe Is Listening to you! I love how synchronicy works. I just had a long conversationwith a friend and heard about all the synchronistic things that were happening to her. I have had a few of my own recently including yesterday. I have a complaint open regarding an account I have. As the person persisted on calling me when I was at work and never emailing me again I thought I would get in touch with her. I went through my work internet to access my home email as she had emailed there once before but I found it blocked.  Can you believe they even block my website as it is Spiritual! I then went into my account on line and found I could not remember the password as at home it automatically connects. Thinking I would have to wait until I got home to email her I gave up at that time. Not 10 mins later who should email me at my work email but the complaint handler! I had given it to her but it was the first time she had used it. I had just been thinking surely she knows to contact me through my work email lol.Last week I went on[…]

  • Communities Come Together For Beast From The East

    Peace Harmony and Joy Mar 2, 2018

    Communities Come Together For Beast From The East With the UK getting lots of snow over the last couple of days it brought back memories of when I was  growing up. Back then all we were concerned about was throwing snowballs and making snowmen. Back to today, as an adult, we are now concerned with getting to work safely especially as there was no public transport and a red warning which means not to travel. Out of this has come many acts of kindness, from individuals, taxi firms, garages, shops and many more. Some people were offering lifts for staff and patients to get to and from Hospitals. Others were carers in communities that outside carers could not access, so they took it upon themselves to help those in need. Many shops have been decimated and have no bread or milk left so locals have been helping others in their areas out with either giving them food or going out to the shops on their behalf. We have churches opening up to allow people a warm place to sleep and eat and people donating things including coats for the dogs. There is even a Vegan restaurant in Edinburgh called ROOTS that could not open their shop due  to the[…]

  • How To Reduce Stress In The Workplace

    Peace Harmony and Joy Feb 14, 2018

    How To Reduce Stress In The Workplace This is what I posted on Facebook this week and thought I would expand on it a little."I was looking at my Blog stats today and saw that someone had accessed ablog from 2015. After reading it I had a lightbulb moment. At work Ihave headphones on and often don't hear those around me. It has become ajoke that I don't hear being advised to come off the phones lol. Myblog was all about Mindful Meditation and how you can cut out soundaround you and just hear the sounds of nature. I realised that when I amat work I cut off from the noise around me and concentrate on listeningto the person at the other end of the phone. I have trained my brain tocut out the waffle going on around me and concentrate on what is reallyimportant. See, Meditation really does help you, unless you are meantto be getting a break from work!"It made me think about all the people who are stressed at work. This may be to do with work or their personal circumstances. If you are an employee what would you like your employer to put in place? If you are an Employer what steps have[…]

  • Synchronicity and The Celestine Prophecy

    Peace Harmony and Joy Feb 10, 2018

    Synchronicity and The Celestine Prophecy I was speaking to someone today about when we can feel like a Victim. The thing that helped me understand this was when I read The Celestine Prophecy. This tells you of the different types of people that come into play in our lives. I found that I was living the life of The Victim.  Everything was going wrong in my life and it was all "Woe is me". Once I recognised this I was able to make changes and with the  help of reiki too I managed to change my mindset and have never looked back. My story gets interesting from then on. This is what is said by the author James Redfield.“If one can connect and build up enough energy, then coincidental events begin to happen consistently.”―James Redfield,The Celestine ProphecyThe first book came into my hands after a friend had read it. She advised I had to read it and she would bring it in the summer when she was coming to stay with me. Not two weeks had gone past when it arrived in the post with a message that it could not wait and I was to read it now. While I read the book which[…]

  • Looking back over 2017

    Peace Harmony and Joy Jan 6, 2018

    Looking back over 2017 2017 was an interesting year for many. Politics in the UK have been all about Brexit and some of the false things that were put before the voters. There was also an oil line built through Dakota Indian reservations against the wishes of the Indians living there. There has been a leak there already. Whenever there is an oil spill it kills all the area and wildlife around it. This can affect the land and water for many years after a spill. Many disabled people and those on benefits are not being treated correctly in the UK either with many being left homeless or without money. On top of all that, Donald Trump also advised there is no such thing as Global Warming! These are people in  power making those decisions and saying these things. It really makes you wonder where common sense and humanity to all has gone from those in power.So many decisions made by governments that we wish could be taken back. It reminds me of the song by Queen-Is this the world we created. We have all been granted time on this earth and should all be taking care of it.  This may be voting in[…]

  • Are You Crazy? Think Again!

    Peace Harmony and Joy Jan 2, 2018

    Are You Crazy? Think Again! I saw this today on my drafts in my Blogger and it got me thinking. I never posted this! There are thousands of people out there, myself included, that know there is more to life than getting up in the morning, going to work and going back home again. Between us we practise Reiki, Meditation, sound baths, Law of Attraction and many more therapies that all help us in different ways.I am very grateful that I am in touch with so many other therapists that have expanded my horizons over the last few years. It is great to share ideas and practices with others.When I started working with reiki energy people thought it was odd. Now it is accepted by most people that I speak to so it has now become more mainstream. Some people though are very  traditional and don't want to believe that anything outside conventional medicine can help them so are unwilling to believe the alternative things on offer. I have found recently that you can only tell people about these new ideas and see how they react, even if the result is they roll around the floor laughing.I had this recently when I was talking at[…]

  • Helping Others Worse Off Than Ourselves

    Peace Harmony and Joy Dec 4, 2017

    Helping Others Worse Off Than Ourselves Today I am not at work as I have done my Back in. It has not done that for 2 years, which I am grateful for. It made me think that at least I can access painkillers and stretch out on a bed if required. I also have electricity to plug in my Sun Ancon Chi machine. Others are not so fortunate. Imagine those that are living on the streets with no money or fixed abode to get help when they need it? Imagine also how cold they are with Winter arriving.Christmas and the Holiday season has landed. We are all thinking about what to buy for those we know. Usually, instead of sending cards to people, I buy something through Unicef to help the third world. I am a great believer that the majority of cards end up in landfill and it is such a waste.This year, instead, I am helping my Grandson Eamonn who is 13 years of age to help the Homeless in Edinburgh. We are going to gather as much money as we can to help buy gloves, scarfs and hats for those on the streets.  Edinburgh is doing a lot to help the homeless but[…]

  • Be Happier Through Being Grateful

    Peace Harmony and Joy Nov 21, 2017

    Be Happier Through Being Grateful  Today I feel so grateful for my life. We all have times in our life when things may not be as we like, but the more you are grateful for what is good in your life, the happier you will become. You really should try it and see over the coming weeks the difference it  makes you feel.Instead of watching TV and hearing about horrible situations, or watching soaps and getting caught up in family dramas (please remember the latter are not real), go outside instead. Let the wind go through your hair, even if it's getting to the time of year to wear hats and scarfs. Being in tune with nature is the way for a much healthier state of mind. What's even better is it's free!Be aware that your life really does matter and somehow it impacts on others. I remember my grandson seeing a homeless person and gave him some of his lunch. We now have Social Bite who are trying to erradicate homelessness. If that person had not made an impact on my grandson, Eamonn would not be wanting to do more to help others at this time of year.I was telling my reiki students yesterday[…]

  • Feeling rejuvenised and rested

    Peace Harmony and Joy Oct 18, 2017

    Feeling rejuvenised and rested I have just returned from a cruise. It is something I had wanted to do for 13 years, since I did my last one and only cruise with my daughter. It came about as I was on holiday with a friend last year and mentioned I could never get anyone willing to travel on the water with me. They all wanted a holiday on land.  This friend shouted out "Me!" After she said that, we went to a travel agency and booked. Talk about the Universe giving me the answer I needed.It used to be that people that went cruising were elderly and rich. You do still get that but our cruise was full of people of all ages, like us, that had saved up and there were also families that had been put forward by the Make a Wish Foundation. These are holidays for children who are terminally ill. There were others that had moved closer to cruise terminals so they could get cheaper cruises, more often. There were many families with children of all ages too. They were all catered for.We met loads of lovely people on board and learnt many stories from people. One lady even told[…]

Social Networking

Do you use Social networks and have you found them useful? I’m talking about sites like Facebook, Twitter and Linked in amongst others. Many people cannot see why anyone would want to communicate over the internet. They prefer to either meet in person or talk on the telephone. Often they will say that they have enough of computers at work.

I love meeting people in person but I also like to keep in contact when we are unable to do this. I use Skype so that my family can see me when we are unable to catch up in person. This especially helps those that live further away from me. With Skype you can video conference with family and friends from across the world.

I also use Facebook and Twitter although I feel I have got more out of the first. I have made contact with Reiki practitioners and some great people both across the world and closer to home. These are people that I would probably never have met up with in a normal situation but through others I have been introduced to these people and have actually met up with some. With Facebook you can add photographs and links too and the amount of people posting positive thinking articles is fantastic. I have found some great websites through others as people often publicise good things that they have found on the web.

One of my favourite sections on Facebook just now is jackdrawsanything which shows how we can use the media to spread the word quickly. This little boy set out to raise £100 for the Sick Children’s hospital in Edinburgh due to the fact his little brother kept getting admitted due to breathing problems. He has so far raised over £30,000! Better still his drawings for other people are now being printed in a book so he will continue to raise more money. Although he has stopped taking orders for pictures you can still donate to his cause. He has become a little star.

Twitter is more restricted in that you can only post snippets but it has its place in the fact that many people use it including me.

Whether you like it or not the internet is here to stay and many of the postings that are made on one site can be automatically added to the other sites if you choose to do this. This is great for professionals like me who like to advertise Reiki Workshops and other products without having to post on multiple websites but I would say that it can be just as good for the individual to expand their horizons by finding out more information about subjects or clubs as most of them have a presence now on the Social Networking sites.

Dare I say it but if you want to follow me on Facebook all you have to do is like my page here Peace Harmony and Joy
