  • 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[…]

  • Don't Be Stuck In Fear Mode. Let's Spread Some Joy.

    Peace Harmony and Joy Sep 29, 2017

    Don't Be Stuck In Fear Mode. Let's Spread Some Joy. Although I stopped watching or listening to the news a few years ago, there are some things you can't escape from. You hear so much on the internet especially on Social Media.  I cannot say strongly enough not to believe all you see in the news. Often it is biased towards what they want you to believe, rather than the truth of a situation. Today I read about the possibility of war with North Korea and America. What it really needs is someone to knock some sense into those in power, not to have other countries joining in! Whenever there is strife and action gets taken, we often find out years later that it was based on lies.Anyone in Government should be doing the best for those who appointed them. Running the risk of war and thousands of deaths is not the way forward. I hope especially that the UK government have learned from the past!Many times over the years I would read or hear things that were so biased and often highly embellished so I realised that companies, especially the BBC, should no longer be held in high esteem. It cannot be said that it is unbiased where political[…]

  • Change Is Good For The Soul

    Peace Harmony and Joy Sep 24, 2017

    Change Is Good For The Soul As the trees change colour and we move into Autumn what changes have you made this year? All our plants constantly go through change and rebirth. Why should we be any different? I believe we should always be changing. It may be our bodies or our mindsets. We can continue to learn as we go through this lifetime.This year has  been a big one for me since my Hypnotherapy workshop. I finally realised what made me the weight I was. This has enabled me to change my eating habits and my thoughts. At the same time I went  Plant based. The  last thing to remove from my diet was was milk and cheese. The Milk was easier as I had been making Almond Milk for a while with Almonds and water and also found an organic Soya Milk with just Soya and water so no nasties in either. The hardest addiction to remove was the cheese which has casein in it. This triggers the same part of the Brain that hard drugs do. No wonder I was attracted to it. I found after 2 years ago going vegetarian, that I was eating so much more cheese than I ever had[…]

This week is M.E Awareness week.

I was pleased to be invited to the Scottish Parliament for a Cross Party M.E event. This is a short recollection of the evening.

 

After going to the Scottish Parliament last night for the It's all about M.E hosted by Mary Fee MSP I came away thinking there can be success with M.E but it can be a real struggle to get to that point with many low points. One fantastic lady has had it for 19 years and explained how she got to where she was today being able to work part time but still in pain all the time. The thing about M. E is it can often be an invisible illness where people look okay on the outside so even friends and family can think the person is okay when they are not. I met lots of lovely people with M.E who were trying to make the best of their situation. Some had managed to get back into employment (perhaps only part time) and some found going self-employed was the only way they could take control of this illness. Others could only dream of getting to this stage.

We also had a dad telling us what he has been and still is going through to get the correct help for his teenage daughter. Our Health system can be horrific to get the diagnosis of M.E but to hear what his Daughter and the family had to go through was horrific at times. I wish them all the best.

There were positives though. We had a GP from Dumfries who has made it his lifetime work to diagnose and help those with this illness and has tracked them through the years. With his help things are going in the right direction. He wishes to get more Doctors together so they can all discuss patients with M.E and get more information spread out there. He likened it to a crystal in that the nucleus had the core group of Doctors and then it starts to grow outwards bring information to a larger group of people. This is what we need so that we become more aware of all the different ways in which M.E can affect people and also that the Doctors will be better informed.

We also had a lovely teacher from Perthshire showing us a new way to teach children excluded from school due to ill health or other reasons. This allows the children via Skype to join in with lessons either live or at their own pace. This especially helps those children who cannot concentrate for long. It is having a really good success rate elsewhere with a 95% pass rate so I hope it gets rolled out all over the country.

I met many people at different stages of M.E many who after years are still not able to work and had all different types of walking aids. One thing the Doctor said was he could help fill in 2 applications for Disability Living Allowance and could not understand why 1 passed and 1 was rejected for the claims. He said for those in the situation of needing to claim that this can be one of the hardest things to get help with.

 

One of the stalls there was to help people to become or stay as self- employed who may be having difficulties perhaps in doing paperwork or other things. These were able to be outsourced. Another group there was the charity Edmesh who have trained therapists to help those with M.E for free. The interesting thing is the therapists also have the illness. If you live in Edinburgh I would join this group and use all the help that is available to its members.

 

For those with this illness they should be aware that work is going on to help in many different areas so things will improve and I'm sure for you all it can't come soon enough.

Empowering yourself and others

 

The swan decided we were NOT crossing the bridge and kept checking to make sure we were not following. We kept him happy by walking round the long way. It is great to see all the water plants growing thickly and the nests being built amongst them for all the water birds. My favourite time comes soon when all the chicks are born. Then it's a case of seeing how many make it past their first weeks due to predators.

It reminded me that we can sometimes be in a similar situation. How often do you have a dream that gets waylaid time after time by people saying you will not make it or you are not worthy? These are our predators. Perhaps they think they have a reason for not wanting you to succeed. It may be jealousy that you can do better than them or just being mean.

Sometimes the biggest one for us can be self doubt. This may be due to how we were brought up or what has happened in our lives more recently. Doubt can be overcome! Part of that is surrounding yourself with people that believe in you and can instill you with positive thoughts.

Every day we can speak to people that feel weak in some area of their life. We can all do our part by helping to get others back on to an even keel where they can start to motivate themselves again. Give praise when it's due and they will start to believe in themselves again.

So my thoughts for today are to go out there and be aware of the impact you can make on others lives. Sometimes a smile can be enough to lift them but other times people may need a little help in other ways. If you are the doubter one thing I would recommend is listening to some Anthony Robbins videos on Youtube and then believe that the only way is UP. I know that you can bring success to your life in all ways. Have a great day everyone.

 

Articles

I am pleased to say that I have now had 2 articles published by Ezine and hope that you will enjoy them. Please feel free to rate and like them if you want. I think it is important to develop Postive thoughts in this day when there is so much negativity in the world and our environments. Due to the laws of synchronicity I had no sooner added the first one when I had to give an update. The world works in mysterious ways for sure.

Positive Experiences for your Health and Wellbeing

I often get asked why I usually have a smile on my face when I am not having a positive experience in my life. It can happen to us all at some point. The answer is how you react. People sometimes mention that I seem so positive even when they know there may be something amiss in my life. This change came about because of Reiki.

When I was introduced to Reiki I suffered from very bad back problems. I visited the Osteopath every month for years for my Health and wellbeing and when my back went I would see him weekly. One evening I was at a Reiki demonstration workshop and was in a lot of pain by the end of it due to the seat I was sitting on. On my way out I spoke to the Teacher who put his hands on my back for a few minutes and I felt heat going through my winter clothes and jacket and then felt no more pain. I was hooked! This was the start of my journey with Reiki.

I decided after that evening to be trained in Reiki. I was to get a big surprise though as I found I was able to help others but not my own Back after being trained in Level One. I was very confused about this as it was not the Positive Experience I had expected. A few months later I went to be trained to Level Two. I mentioned this to my teacher who asked had anyone said if the way I behaved or talked had changed. After thinking about this I said that yes there was a difference. Before LevelOne everything was going wrong and I was anxious for much of the time. I was also of the mind-set that if 2 things had gone wrong I was just to waiting for the 3rd bad thing to happen. This had now changed. I was astonished when he told me the Energy would go to where it was needed most, not where I had expected or wanted it to go to. I had learned my first lesson.

One thing that was wrong in my life at that time had been my roof which had been leaking for a while and I had paid 3 companies to try to fix it with no success. This had me very worried as water was coming into the house and damaging walls inside. I had not realised but after training in Level One my whole mind-set had changed. Now instead of worrying I had the attitude of “It’s okay, everything will turn out fine” and I did not worry. The roof did eventually get fixed and out of that I got a new Therapy space in my attic to chill out. So in the end Reiki Level One had turned out to be a most positive experience for my health and wellbeing. This may seem strange but it has completely changed the way I see life. Nothing is insurmountable in my life now. I know that I am in the right place at the right time and there is no reason to get stressed.

The good news is after Level Two I was able to self-treat my Back and came off all the Painkillers I was using most days. My journey with Reiki has been the most Positive Experience of my life. I love the fact that I am able to pass this gift onto others now. Maybe you would like to try it too.

 

Welcome the seasons

I've just had a walk and seen my first squirrel of the year. It was tiny but I know soon I'll see lots of them with increasing weight as the weather warms up. There were lots of small twigs on the ground after the high winds of 2 nights ago and it made me think how useful they will be for the birds building nests.

There are always good and not so good things that happen as the seasons change. We have had a milder Winter although strong winds at times. My thoughts go out to those who had damaged property but there should also have been less deaths due to accidents or the cold.

All those plants that were resilliant enough to see the storm through are now brightening our gardens. Soon they will be ablaze with colour boosting our minds for the better. If your garden has no colour yet why not put on a piece of clothing in your favourite colour as that can boost you in the same way.

If you see someone who needs a boost today take some time to help them raise a smile. A little kindness goes a long way. Have a great day everyone.
