I blog when I feel the push to share something about my experience… I believe in following my intuition and believe that when you are in tune with your energies, everything flows the way it needs to for your personal growth towards… whatever it is you want in your life:)  This is what I wish for all of us …What do you really, really want?…

MY BLOG…


January 2020 In recent years, each year seems to have had a theme… has this one got one yet? I am not sure… But looking back, my writing, my personal self-development, had clear ones: in 2018, I summarised my experience over many years of achieving Wholeness and in 2019, it was all about Chi. My Healing Activities however seemed to run their course and come to some sort of completion…?! And my main working life became more in tune with my values… now working as a Shop Manager for Oxfam, so the healing so far has done its job 🙂 But what about my healing activities, my writing and Heal Your Puzzle… I am still growing, learning and understanding more about energy and how it forms… I still feel the need to write, the need to understand about how we evolve and what happens to our energy as we develop who we are… the journey never stops 🙂 Looking to do more Shows now so will continue to do 1-to-1’s through those… always a wonderful healing vibe at these so an opportunity to help any of you who can get along to one of these <3 As for a Theme for this year… I get the sense that other aspects of my life will start to focus and rather than being ideas and dreams, will become a living reality ?… we will see 🙂

September 2019 10th September is World Suicide Prevention Day #WSPD
I will be focusing healing through my Page on Facebook and through and to anywhere I have a link for. Official World Link: www.iasp.info/wspd2019/
I will have a post on my Facebook Page and you can join in/request support/send healing… by briefly adding a comment ‘I am here’ or whatever you feel is appropriate.
You can also connect to this endeavour via Twitter with #WSPD #WSPD19 #WSPD2019 or just by ‘heart’ing and/or sharing my tweet 🙂
Whatever way works for you on Sept 10th, focus your thoughts and your heart on helping support anyone or any group/community/country/nation/ continent..the world… any energy struggling with their life force at this time. Love to All #WSPD #WSPD19 #WSPD2019 #HealYourPuzzle #LoveLife

November 2018  What a year!  My Monthly Group has gone really well although has had a change of venue which actually is a much better option than before 🙂 So really pleased about that! Not much progress with regular workshops but there may be more news about that next year…

I had a nudge in the Spring to publish articles for a online magazine but I decided against it… but funnily enough, back in May, I decided to start my own Series anyway… Intro here > ‘Your Journey to Being Whole‘ 🙂  Very happy with how it is turning out.

Life this year has felt more ‘normal’ although I am still continuously learning about the deeper forms in our Consciousness that shape who we are.  Maybe with this Series, I will feel ready next year to write the book I’ve always felt was there to be written … one that would complete my Journey of Healing… the start of living a life that is Whole, coherent and loving 🙂

I’ve always felt that there would come a point where I would not feel I had to keep digging into energy forms to resolve life problems… at some point, life would just flow ‘normally’… and I would look forward to each day, have work that inspired me and kept me financially able to live my life the way I want to… to be able to plan for the future without it all collapsing at my feet… This year is feeling more like that…

Projects in the pipeline that could bring my whole life into harmony rather than disconnected…

Looking good…

November 2017 At last things are starting to move forward… a new workshop, a new local Wellbeing Centre and a new monthly group…. Jan 2018… let’s dooooo this!!

October 2017   Procrastination… hhmm…. very funny TED Talk by Tim Urban  “Inside the Mind of a Master Procrastinator”

24th November 2016   … it has most definitely been a ‘9 year‘ for me!!!  A feeling of completion of a 9-year phase… much learning and growth.  I started the year by writing about Debris and clearing your personal space and it became more and more clear during the year that this was the case… not just healing energies but actually removing debris to clear the way for the next phase… maybe why it’s taken me sooo long to blog more here ?!

My second YouTube video has yet to be created because my storyboard keeps changing ?! My personal goals for my professional work have also updated a few times this year adding to the realisation that I must keep my centre and wait for a clear path with momentum to form… a Truth within to be brought into being… very exciting time 🙂

That’s all for now… wishing you all ONE-ness and that you find your true place in the World <3

28th July 2016Love… far more than we think…

21st Feb 2016Redefining Mental Illness…

19th Feb 2016Are you Distracted by Technology?

6th January 2016  I finally published my first YouTube video at the end of last October! Very pleased with it and wanting to do more!! My aim is to build up a library to explain what I do and what is achievable 🙂  I have started my second one but have not had the time to finish it but I also suspect that there is subtle things going on in the background which are forming how the video is put together!? …and also its message…  So when it’s the right time, it will be 🙂

I have just had the most wonderful family Christmas as well and it proved to me what can be achieved with energy work on relationships… I asked in my heart to be shown what family time can be like and it was 🙂    There were challenges but it all flowed along very nicely 🙂

I do feel this New Year different to previous… I have less urgency to set goals which is very unlike me! But it fits with where I am with my Energy… there is a flow to my life that I trust more…   I feel more in the present, my Now, rather than worrying about the Future or the Past.

Looking forward to what 2016 brings… feel excited about new opportunities 🙂

There is so much to be resolved in the World at this time; it drives me to find out more ways to help <3

The Highest Love to All at this time <3

21st October 2015  … working on a Self-Development Video – yay! Taking its time but I hope it will be entertaining as well as helpful 🙂

5th October 2015: … First of all, my Intention of my last blog has been a bit of a process…

To start with, I am refocusing the intention of my FB Group to be a Healing Space specifically for healing requests at this time and we will see how that evolves… I will send healing through this Space as and when I get a nudge 🙂 Today is the start of that 🙂

This links into my Intention from September… a bit of a lengthy blog but here goes…
What is your Criteria for Growth and your Life? ..

26th September 2015: … I would like to share my thoughts on Setting Intention – what is your criteria for yours? Do you want change quickly or just want a comfortable ride? Coming soon….  🙂

26th August 2015:  “BOOM“… Energy Shrapnel Everywhere!

8th August 2015:  Brilliant TED Talk!!

This Talk about Addiction is brilliant!! Dealing with addiction is one of the most complex psychological tasks.  We can learn coping mechanisms but the patterns for powerful addictions run deep into the psyche.  Love is key but a very high and aware Love to nurture, guide and encourage the Addict.  Punishments, humiliations, and judgements only add to the embedded disempowering patterns that disconnect the person from their Physical Well Being <3

TED Talk :”Everything you think you know about Addiction is Wrong?” by Johann Hari

2nd July 2015:  Where to start? I have reread my last couple of blogs and they all still feel very valid.  My last 10 months have been very busy and eventful.  I asked for fast-track healing and self-development and that is certainly happening.  I have learned to listen to my senses, my intuition; I sometimes used to get that feeling that I was missing the point about what I was working with… on a track with kinesiology, this technique, that technique… and then steadily I began to stop questioning the doubt I felt about myself and realised I was sensing my next step… what I knew was not working fast enough, a spinning plate was falling over somewhere over there!?  I began to realise I did not have to run there to keep it spinning!  I realised that I had just to ask within to move up to my next level of learning, to treat all the plates as if they were one thing and work with that! This is the process of self-development in a truly holistic way. I have never been disappointed with the outcome of my challenges and they have come thick and fast sometimes.  I have learned how to manage my energy, the energy that is Me in my multi-dimensional nature, in the here and now, in the past, in  the future… and I am still learning.  Still patterns are challenging me in my life but I know there is a solution somewhere somehow, and not just one solution but a journey of change to a clearer,  human energy field, an honest and transparent, caring, respectful energy field.  This is the potential for all of us.  Patterns playing out deep in our consciousness keep us from expressing our true potentials, keep us from having truly fulfilling and satisfying relationships with ourselves, each other and the World.

Everything that is going on in the World at the moment is also going on within us, within our relationship energies, group energies, national energies, global energies, the fractal nature of it is staggering!  The only way to change these innate, sometimes terrifying, traits is to go within and change from within, each of us getting individually stronger day by day, growing stronger together, as Nations, as global communities and giving that a voice in the World.  This change does not just happen… here you are – have a bit of healing … things will change… It’s not always that easy… you do have to fight and face the limiting patterns… my constant drive in recent years is “this really does not feel right! What do I need to see? What do I need to ask?”  …and then I ask to be shown the ‘brick wall’, the thought loop, the subtle form that is standing blocking my way forward!  I ask to meet the challenge!  I state clearly that I will walk through or face any obstacle because I know from experience that I will be learning the skills that I need to resolve it.  I am never disappointed by this process now.  I now no longer feel like I am ever banging my head against a brick wall or a closed door because I am always given some understanding  that allows me through.

We run so many stories in our lives, like a treadmill of cause and effect.  If you want to reach for the stars, then it’s up to you.  I feel an urgency for change in the world and I have felt this for many years now.  There is a momentum for freedom of speech, freedom to be yourself, freedom to be respected and respect others, freedom to stand up for any cause you wish.  Give yourself a voice. Dig deep. Speak clearly. What do you value? Is it in your Life? Make an inner decision to bring it in! Follow your path of change!  🙂

10th October 2014: It always amazes me that when something needs doing and it needs doing quickly that everything seems to fall into place and it all gets done… although that is not how it has always been for me… Perhaps that is why it amazes me and I feel such gratitude for my journey 🙂
I used to feel like I could scream sometimes when the ‘best laid’ plans just did not happen or did but not really… or it felt like I was banging my head against a brick wall ggggrrrr !!! But…
I have just had an amazing couple of weeks which started with me wondering how on earth I could integrate My Healing Work into my ‘Real Life’ – the wonderful ‘normal’ life I have every day. This question has always been in the back of my mind (sometimes very much in the front and often in my face!!?) but nothing changed much and I had the sense that I was not ready… and looking back… ‘I was not ready’ !!!

Your Journey to Being Whole… “Realisation”

This is the second in my series on Wholeness where I intend to revisit my own journey and try to map my own personal growth onto a simple timeline… so this article is about “Realisation”. And as I write this page I realise that there has not been one or two of them but more of a continuing flow especially when I began my own self-growth journey.
A Realisation is one of those moments of complete clarity: suddenly you understand something, a decision makes itself or an unplanned event just happens… out-of-the-blue, no turning back. This may be life-changing like starting or ending a relationship, taking a new job, a career change, moving to a new town, falling out with friends or family or something less significant like decluttering your home or wardrobe just because it feels right.
When a Puzzle Comes Together… Realisations can be an idea that suddenly takes hold or an in-the-moment event but is probably also the culmination of a process that has been happening in your sub-conscious for a while…

Before the energy puzzle of the idea forms, you may have that underlying feeling of uncertainty, that awareness that you do not feel complete and are looking for something; maybe you feel bored or unfulfilled or just a bit unclear or confused. It may also not be change that you need but that you just need more ingredients to your Life’s Cake Recipe 🙂
More Ingredients Please This in itself was a significant Realisation that I had along the way. I had reached landmarks in my life which I was very pleased with but still had this discomfort within that I was not complete. I did not deliberately chase change and really did try to make the best of where I was but life knew better and threw me opportunities I could not resist!? It was not until I faced a really challenging phase in my life when opportunities just stopped happening and I felt overwhelmed by circumstances that my trust in this process deserted me… all I could do was dig in and get myself through each day.
But had my Journey stopped? A puzzle had actually formed and all those life-changing events mentioned above happened all at once! I actually finally had the people in my life that I wanted but everything else that made me feel secure disappeared. But a new puzzle was in process, a new Realisation was forming. I was being made aware of why I had felt empty and now I was learning how to feel truly Full of Life…to feel Whole! This has become a step-by-step inner process which I have shared here with you along the way and I now look forward to what unfolds.

This year 2018, my new project is about developing a local Monthly Group entitled ‘Your Healing Space’, which introduces and supports the first few steps to Wholeness.  This is  in association with the South Gloucestershire Wellbeing College and allows it to be FREE for those who are interested in holistic support for their Journey.

Muscle Response Testing… Learning a New Language… With Yourself…

As a Kinesiologist, I use muscle response testing to guide and progress my therapy sessions but it can be more than just a clinical tool. Anyone can use this technique with practise to build a dialogue with themselves, their lives and their environment. It can be used to clarify choices when unclear or enable understanding when confused or overwhelmed. As well as being a skill to help manage stress and anxiety, I feel it is invaluable in holistic self-development when you really want change and fulfilment but do not have a clue where to start or everything you have tried doesn’t help!? Isn’t stress just a symptom of not having learnt how to deal with the current challenging circumstances? Isn’t unfulfilment another type of challenge? Isn’t either of these challenges a nudge to learn about yourself and develop who you are?
Muscle Testing Relies on Biofeedback Stress is a natural response generated by the body’s biofeedback which is a hugely complex function of the Nervous System along with a myriad of interactions with the endocrine and immune systems. Your Stress Response and its history is individual to you. What stresses you may not stress anyone else. It may be physically overwhelming or just a slight emotional blip. When stress is present to whatever degree, muscles are affected as well and may either lock up, function erratically or switch off completely when gentle pressure is applied. This effect is what enables you to begin the dialogue with yourself because in any question or choice, there will be a degree of stress because you do not know the answer already! When there is certainty, there is no stress and the muscles function normally.


‘Priority Muscle Testing’ Requires Clear Intention Your Intention sets the Rules of the Test and this is where Kinesiologists may differ in their training and their specialities and is the skill that comes with experience. When your Intention is clear, the muscle response is clear and it feels right… and this is what needs practise in simple ways when you start. Rather than the Muscle Test being an answer to a question, it is better to see the Test as a way of choosing the “Priority” or the “Most Appropriate for My Wellbeing” out of the options given. Also ‘Keep It Real’… you are responsible for your own decisions, not the Muscle Test and sometimes you may disagree with the Test just because it does not feel right! You decide and this is how you shape your Inner Intention and begin the process of understanding and re-empowering who you are. Muscle Testing is only a tool and just another aid to help you find your Way to a Life that fulfils you 🙂
Starting a Simple Dialogue using Muscle Testing Follow the guidelines in the picture. Use it to make Simple Choices because learning any language requires you to start with the equivalent of ‘phonics and letter recognition’ before diving into reading and understanding a whole library of encyclopaedias… which is what you actually are! Start with small steps… 🙂

Mind vs Heart – Thoughts vs Feelings… Do you know the difference?

This time last year (July 2014), I asked a similar question funnily enough!?… “Are you Led by your Heart or your Mind?” and concluded then that at the end of the day, when thinking really has not given you the answers and the feelings are confusing, just ask yourself, YOU, “What do I really want to do?” Since then I have pondered on what actually are ‘feelings’ in terms of healing and subtle energies. I thought I knew enough and as usual I find there is more to the story!

Mind vs Heart - YHS July 2015
Feelings appear to be not just another behaviour we have alongside thinking, they seem to be the backdrop to all the thinking that we do; they influence how we think, how we make decisions and how we behave. Our Mind deciphers all our sensory information, creates a form that we can understand, decides a strategy to follow and a response happens. When we cannot find clarity, decide on a strategy or a response, it will usually be because a feeling is confusing this process or overriding logical thought. Another mechanism is at work, another mechanism which is far more than just learned behaviour or strategies; you are experiencing your Self, experiencing an underlying Truth about who you are and what drives you, you are experiencing the Heart of who you are.

We are all individuals; we are all unique. Some of us are driven more by our feelings than logical process; some are driven by logic rather than feelings. In my experience to date, to fully connect however with who you are and to experience an authentic, colourful, meaningful life requires the Mind and Heart to grow in themselves and together and be able to function in harmony, to comfortably be able to decipher the energy of each other and work together.

With regard to self-development and healing… Strong Minds can control Feelings… Strong Feelings can override the Mind. Your own unique path through to Harmony will be personal to you… it can be tough and support in some form may be necessary or you may have to travel some of the Path on your own… whichever way, you decide where to go next, what you need, and where you are heading! You! Ask questions, seek understanding, seek help if you need it! There will always be someone somewhere to listen! <3

Relationship Issues? Maybe it’s Your Conflicting YIN & YANG?!

It is Springtime and there is a feeling in the air of ‘new beginnings’, refreshing the ‘old’, trying something new, cleaning and decluttering; Nature is full of new growth from baby lambs and birds to new leaves and blossoms. This has got me thinking about Yin and Yang, about the attraction between the feminine and the masculine, about the desire to create something new…

yin-yang

Much of my healing work is about relationships, not just between men and women but also between ideas we have about the world and about ourselves. Ill health or relationship difficulties can arise when our beliefs, understandings, thoughts and/or feelings do not agree or how they relate is unclear.

The idea of Yin and Yang is described beautifully in the Tao Te Ching (insert), ancient Classic Chinese Writings dating back to the 6th Century BC, which underpin many ideas in various Eastern Philosophies and have also become very popular in our own culture.

The text talks of ‘the One’, the idea of Wholeness and a Higher Intent driving our existence and that by embodying the Yin (feminine) and Yang (masculine) qualities in ‘ten thousand’ different ways we create ‘forms’ – ideas, activity, aspirations… who we are… our lives. It also talks about ‘achieving harmony’ through ‘Union’, which refers to being able to easily use your own masculine and feminine qualities as needed (whether you are a man or a woman), being empowered enough to be logical, active, hot (passionate) alongside being intuitive and passive (supporting and listening); it is also relevant to being able to create harmonious relationships with others. So can men and women work in harmony with each other? Are men and women treated as equals? Can women be ‘yang’ and men not be threatened and vice versa? Can a woman or a man be ‘passive’ without being seen as ‘weak’ or ‘of no value’? This is still a global work-in-progress obviously! We are all still learning how to empower and harmonise our own Yin and Yang qualities and to value and encourage that in others too.

Thinking about your year ahead? Planning to make changes? Lose Weight? Give up smoking? Be more positive? … or have you given up on New Year Resolutions… why bother?!

Addictions - YHS Jan 2015

As a Kinesiologist, I am fascinated by the energy psychology of behaviour and working with Addictions has been one of those areas professionally that I thought I knew enough about but also knew on some level that I didn’t!? All the strategies I had been taught unfortunately did not always help and it’s only in recent months that I have really begun to understand the complex nature of Addiction. I am writing about this now because it is January (2015), the start of a new year and maybe it may prompt some of you to seek help and understanding about your own or another’s addictive behaviour… Why not? Why wait another year going around the same old loops?…

What is an ADDICTION?

Definition (courtesy of Wiki): ‘Addiction’ is a state characterised by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli, despite adverse consequences. The Stimuli will be 1) Positively Reinforcing – increasing the likelihood that a person will seek repeated exposure to them and 2) Intrinsically Rewarding – activating the brain’s “reward pathways” so are seen as something positive or desirable. Scientifically, biological and genetic factors have been shown to influence a person’s predisposition to behavioural and substance addictions but is that it?

WORKING WITH ADDICTIONS

Talking from my professional and personal experience over recent months, I have been surprised to see that in the deeper consciousness levels of everyone, there are addictive patterns; we all like to be praised and to be rewarded so the key phrase in the definition above is ‘adverse consequences’, which is when an Addiction really becomes a problem. Unfortunately by this stage, a significant factor with recovery or self-realisation is the Denial that there is any problem at all and this is also what I have seen in healing terms – the Addiction Pattern is one thing but the layers of Denial and Deception hiding it can be an even more significant obstacle and adversary.

SOCIETY AND ADDICTIONS

Addictions, whether substance- or behaviour-related, seem to be getting more prevalent in our Society with greater personal freedoms, less social judgement about behaviour but also that it is easier to hide and indulge such patterns using social media personas and internet communications. Whatever the reason for it or how we feel about it, being able to openly discuss and educate about this topic is crucial to becoming aware of the deceptive behaviour and then how to get help for the primary addiction… if you are concerned, get talking, seek help… <3

Monthly Holistic Self-Development Group

Next Meeting:    tbc
This Group is currently under review and a change of venue is on the cards I feel 🙂
The 3 meetings (March-May 2014) went well and I know it’s evolving.  Thanks very much for those who participated 🙂
This Group is intended to provide support on your life journey and help you and your loved ones move through difficult times as quickly and efficiently as possible at an affordable cost.
I would like it to run every month so it is always there if you need it once, to meet a short-term need or for longer term conscious focused self-growth but at this time the interest does not support this.  I trust in the path of Life’s bigger picture and with growth and experience comes new opportunities… exciting time <3

If this group does interest you, please call for up-to-date info about possible dates and venues.

I can also offer ‘Your Healing Space’ to a Group you belong to as a one-off or as a Course of Events. Please call to arrange <3

Life is for living… let’s move through the energy of the Past as quickly as possible, learn what we need to learn, grow and live life to its full potential 🙂

This clearing process is rapid at the moment in the World and not always easy especially if you are sensitive to your surroundings. Empower your personal space… Teach it to work for you and not against you…

Support is here… 🙂 <3
