Transformation

This month has been busy. Not that the month before was not, but this is a different kind of busy. An up in the air, juggling, planning, head-scratching busy.  Because RSL Collective is changing. After over a year in Queens Parade, Willesden Green I have been blessed to connect with a number of complementary therapistsContinue reading “Transformation”

The First Solar Return of RSL

Well here we are and it’s exactly a year since the shop opened its doors.   To mark the occasion we had a small sale last week with some bubbles and delicious home-made cake made our resident Angel and healer, Loretta McCabe. Looking back over the last year I have learnt so much about making aContinue reading “The First Solar Return of RSL”

Pop Up Love

Saturday 13 February saw another successful community event for the burgeoning RSL Collective. For this we ‘borrowed’ the unit next door so we could spread (the love) along the first three Units of the freshly painted Queens Parade in Willesden Green. As I truly know (and am making a business from it), Valentine’s Day bringsContinue reading “Pop Up Love”

Ask Sally: Surviving Christmas

This used to be a tough time for me too, especially with the emphasis on food and well meaning friends and family buying chocolatey treats. It’s been a long road and knowing I was not alone was key to finding my way again.  Our wonderful advice columnist Sally, in her second piece for us, offersContinue reading “Ask Sally: Surviving Christmas”

Forgetful

A return to our previous format with another lesson learned (or rather underway) from Kirstie… I have just completed our first Introduction to Mindfulness course with Saffron. What a gift it has been especially through what has been experienced as stormy times. During the course Saffron shared with us the fundamental principles of Mindfulness beforeContinue reading “Forgetful”

Ask Sally…

Today we are going to start to do things a little bit differently.  One of our Collective members and big-hearted supporters is Sally.  She is not only an incredible complementary therapist but also a qualifed counsellor and psychotherapist.  As such she has offered to be our own on-line advice columnist to answer any questions youContinue reading “Ask Sally…”

My Big Issue

I think my new guide and benefactor is one of those “firm but fair” teachers. I was not so secretly hoping for a nice soft and fluffy one that would take my hand and together we would skip down that golden path to enlightenment. Not he. He is the embodiment of Capricorn. Serious, disciplined, lookingContinue reading “My Big Issue”

Body beautiful

I visited my exercise therapist today. Yes it’s a thing and if you have M.E or other forms of unexplained fatigue you get to find out what one of these can do. It’s been a revelation. Something I initially resisted but have embraced. It sounded like it would be something akin to school gym. JumpingContinue reading “Body beautiful”

I’m no Angel

Very busy work work today. During the busyness and varied tasks a recurring theme: Angels. (In a HR job, I know, what are the chances) Now I know angels bring up religious connotations but again this is a term I use as a working title. When I think of angels I don’t think of goldenContinue reading “I’m no Angel”

Sort it out

With a little bit of a fluffy head this morning I have the urge to tidy and clean the house and my crystals. Exciting stuff eh.  It must be Moon in Virgo, the transit moon saying hi to my natal one.  And suddenly I want to organise and sort. By way of background, in astrologyContinue reading “Sort it out”
