How are you doing? I am asking because around me a lot of people are not doing so well. Including myself for a while.
So I have questions. I always do.
Have you been
- Sleeping really weirdly, either waking up several times in the night or not being able to go back to sleep or both
- Been having nightmares of feeling trapped and not being able to find a way out
- Suffering from more brain fog than usual
- Ruminating about past events
- Felt unable to look forward to stuff
- or to laugh…
This is the view from my kitchen window this morning... bleak isn't it. Just the right type of weather for Samhain. Long gone are the summer's days (if you had a decent summer and were not plagued by fires, high temperatures, and freak floods) and tonight, in Europe, the clocks are going backward. Why the whole world has to change times and cannot get its act together to do it at the same time (!) is still a mystery to me.
But then individualism is becoming more and more well, indiv…
How is it all going? Has the Autumn started in your neck of the woods yet?
As I wistfully look at the weather in Florence - still 30 degrees C and sunny - and look out of my window (gale force winds and rain), I am taking stock of this Summer's Harvest.
Saturday is the Harvest Full Moon and if you are interested in this kind of thing, then sign up for my Full Moon email? Here is the link www.baya.ie/fullmoon
I have been working on this for the past week or so. What, with the w…
Wishing for the Moon
How are you doing? I mean, what with the droughts, the monsoon, the electricity, the fuel, the.... just fill in the blank space. Do you ever want to put your hands on your ears and beg the endless stream of things to be worried about to stop?
I certainly do and was toying with the idea of doing a series of EFT tapping Masterclasses for anxiety relief.
You know, show you how you can tap and help yourself think again and manage the legitimate anxiety better.
Then, I thought again.…
DARK OF THE MOON
How is it going as they say. Remember, last time we talked I was saying about going even though we did not really know where we are going and today... we cannot even see where we are going!
Because, today is the day before the New Moon
The Dark of the Moon.
And in the current circumstances as the world lurches from one more unbelievable disaster to another, it feels entirely appropriate to write about the dark, hence the photo at the top of this blog.
The dark is so tough because…
Why a dog with a pacifier in its mouth I hear you wonder? Well, this blog is about self soothing and pacifier came to mind but I did not want the photo of a baby because that is not my point and I thought the dog one was cute.
So, I was thinking the other day of how I always have a mint tea and a square of chocolate at the end of the day when i sit down to watch some television. It all goes together. I am not hungry, I have just has supper. I want the mint tea because it …
Full Moon - Endurance
Here I am, still with my pullover and winter socks on as the weather is not improving over here in Ireland. And it is now June 14th and the Summer Solstice is on its way with yet again more fires to jump and more dancing outside. I don't see this happening any time soon here.
So, I got to thinking about ceremonies and rituals, traditional ones, ones that it is said our ancestors performed.
Well, between Beltane (First May) and the Summer Solstice (21st June) there were outside ce…
What are we today? I stare out of the window of my office at the grey sky and the eternal drizzle, I tell you what, we are not at the start of summer, nowhere near.
Here in Ireland the cold winds still blow and our kitchen garden lags behind previous years. I feel so sorry for my tiny baby courgettes!
And I know in other parts of the world the temperatures are already higher than last year and the droughts are getting worse.
It is all changing and I HATE CHANGE!
Which is kind of why I am wri…
Thanks for clicking on the link and being curious about my Monday's musings.
We have had four weeks about Food Cravings and by now, I am sure you have got the message! I am re-running Body Magic starting at the end of May and if you want to sign up here is the link www.baya.ie/BodyMagic
But this is not what I want to talk about this morning. This morning, I want to tell you about an Experiment I am involved in.
A really good friend of mine has started this 30 Days Experiment on Fa…
CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 4
A bit more on Food addiction and cravings. It is a terrible thing that people who are addicted to food, like I am, do not get a look in really.
We are told to pull ourselves together, to use our willpower. We are told that we are just lazy and to make an effort.
It is all our fault, somehow.
There is no help out there apart from diets and deprivation.
The problem with all of that is that will power does not work, never has and never will.
Do you know why?
Because research …
