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 are you faring as the year winds down and the trees turn red and yellow in their Fall dance? Have you noticed that trees never seem to be worried that their leaves are changing color or even falling on the ground? They, unlike us humans, seem to be pretty accepting of what is.
Be more like a tree!
I learn so much from trees when I walk around the land. I have a very small grove of Scott Pines in a corner of my place and they fill me with joy. They grow like anything,…
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.…
The New Bed
Its was a New Moon on Saturday so I thought I would tell you a story about new starts and old patterns. Just to show you that I am no way as sorted as I might think I am.
It is all about an old bed.
Well, actually, it is not an old bed. It was, once upon a time a NEW BED! Bought five years ago when we moved to Ireland. It was going to be the new bed for our Air B&B Adventure.
But that Adventure never actually took off so after a few guest we stopped.
I always HATED that Bed…
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…
