Living In The Moment

How is everyone doing now we are into May 2019? It used to be that if you thought the year was passing quickly, people put it down to you being old. Now my Granddaughter Chloe who is 10 years old says the same thing. We just seem to have got Christmas done and then Easter came right behind. We are now into all the May holidays and soon we will be at Summer. I have to say though, that I think the plants are getting confused. So many are blooming early. I’m sure it helped getting the burst of sunshine a couple of weeks ago.  As usual in Scotland we do not rely on the weather being sunny. Instead as soon as the sun shines, you see everyone in the garden or washing their cars.  It’s a great way of staying in the moment. We can have four seasons in one day here in Edinburgh.  That means as soon as you see the sun, you get outdoors. The housework will still be there once the sun has gone.

Since I learned reiki, I have become more aware of living in the moment and make the most of it. It may be just cuddling up to my dogs, or sitting in the garden listening to the birds. Often in our busy lives we can get stressed  from work, finance, home life and so much more. If there is nothing you can do about it at that time, don’t keep thinking about it. Instead look forward to do something that you like doing instead. For instance, if you are not enjoying your workplace, make sure you can go outside at lunchtime and sit quietly. Another thing is to have something good planned for when you go home. I still get stressed occasionally but can usually see it happening and know what to do about it. I always used to book up weekends away with my social group Spice Scotland so that I had something to look forward to when I was in my day job. It made the time at work seem easier. Now of course I’m living my dream and working for myself.

If you find yourself not being able to live in the moment and getting stressed all the time, why don’t you book a therapy for yourself. Massage, reiki, reflexology and so much more are available to you. You could even go for a walk in a park for free!  Or you could join me on one of my workshops and learn reiki to have it on hand wherever you are. If you are up for a little bit of reading, you can read my book about life’s synchronicities that you recognise more with reiki. The Power of Reiki, Crystals and Synchronicity


A couple of years ago I heard of this song from Jason Mraz. I think the words speak for themselves. Have a listen
