The Bird gets the Worm

I could be content, if, I allowed myself to be. I could not write lists or set life goals, if I was happy, just Sitting under a big old oak tree. * I could watch the blackbird, (or is it a thrush?) as she Waits, fluffed feathers dripping, watching for the worms to hear thatContinue reading “The Bird gets the Worm”

Composure

Yesterday I had that moment all aspiring writers have.  “Why I am doing this?  Am I even any good?  Am I just indulging myself? Should I even bother sharing my work?” I allowed myself some time to reflect on this, to ask the question without a furious search for the right answer.  Instead I rememberedContinue reading “Composure”

Thought….less

It’s a while since I been a guest blogger on the RSL site and I do miss writing.  So below I have decided to include a small piece on a healing I received from one of our members, Katy. Love and Peace to you all Kirstie x I had a reiki seichem and crystal healingContinue reading “Thought….less”

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”

Self-careful

This time next week I’ll be posting the 365th post in my blog before picking up a hopefully large glass of wine in celebration. One week to go! I may have started the celebration early as after yesterday’s intense day I indulged in a bit of self-care. Self-care times two. Firstly after welcoming our SoulContinue reading “Self-careful”

Nothing personal

It’s been one of those shake your fists at the sky retrograde Mercury days today. Lots of irritation in the air, miscommunication and fractious connections. When this happens… don’t take it personally. It’s stuff. Your stuff, my stuff, other’s stuff coming up from the dark and dancing around in our field of vision. It willContinue reading “Nothing personal”

Luck of the Goddess

My friend, and let’s face it, Virgo goddess, has whisked me away on a weekend break to a (surprisingly) sunny Bournemouth. Well maybe not whisked but this lucky lady won a weekend spa hotel break and invited me along. Hence Goddess, although for this there are also many reasons.  Here’s another. Self-care and a littleContinue reading “Luck of the Goddess”

The great adventure

Shop day off today so since I missed last week’s tidy and sort day due to travelling back from up north I made sure it had plenty TLC.  It’s always a lovely feeling getting the shop ready for the week ahead.  It’s “as above, so below” so the love, care and cleansing I give theContinue reading “The great adventure”

Snuggled

Today has been the first day since before opening the shop that I’ve had one of those truly “veg out” days.  A pyjama wearing, box-set watching, sofa snuggling day. Just me and the Aquarian. No thoughts, no to do lists, no poignant questions, just “lying like broccoli” enjoying our time together. (Can’t remember where thatContinue reading “Snuggled”
