Dear Reader,

 

I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of Crush your Cravings!

My craving is Cheese, preferably French with may be some sourdough bread! I could eat tons of the stuff if I am upset about something. During my work with EFT Tapping and Cravings, I realized something important. I eat too much of the craved food when I feel out of sorts.

 

So today, we are going to look at feelings.

 

Brene Brown will disagree with me but for the sake of simplicity (this is only a one page blog), there are …

I SHALL NOT FEED YOU!

Dear Reader,

I wonder how you are feeling right now?

I know I am a bit nosy but I thought I would ask. Because frankly things are really really weird, I fear.

Two years ago, our world ended as the Pandemic caused us to become prisoners in our own homes for months on end. No-one seems to be marking this moment.

I am not quite sure that my resilience to stress has recovered.

And now, what with the war in Europe...

Anxiety is everywhere.

Every single person I talk to, every single client, is…

SCOTLAND

Dear Reader,

After last Monday's ceremony and tapping session, something rather wonderful happened to me.

I had been listening to calming music in the morning, soothing type of stuff, I thought it was helping me feel more together and centered.

This morning, totally unexpectedly, I suddenly looked down my Spotify list and clicked on my favorite Scottish Band, Wolfstone and the sounds of the bagpipes filled my kitchen with joy. Wolfstone is Scottish Rock music and the next thing I knew, there …

SPRING HAS SPRUNG

Dear Reader,

Before I forget, I have a favor to ask. if you like my musings, would you scroll down to the bottom of the page and sign up for the blog updates? It would help with my new plans and would keep you in the loop. I promise I won't bombard you with emails. I hate that.

Back to the matter at hand.

Have you noticed how we seem to not be able to imagine a future, an alternative to the life we lead these days?

How our deepest desire is to return to "normal", which means basically return…

Dream

Dear Reader,

What with all the anxiety floating around. Whether you are off the World or of the World (I hope you read my previous blog on the topic - if not, go and find it!). It has not been that easy to sleep.

The going to sleep part for me is simple, I just do. It is the waking up at some ridiculous hour and starting to mull things over that I do not like very much.

Anyway, this did not happen last night but I had a dream instead. It is not often that I remember my dreams so this must be …

The Other Shoe...

Dear Reader,

I am sorry I was a tad morose last week. Actually, that is not true, I am not sorry at all. These feelings have to be lived and pushing them down really does not help.

I have a puzzle for you today and I need your input.

I am trying to understand  a North American expression that a lot of my US/Canadian friends and clients use. They will say something like "I am having a great week, but I am waiting for the other shoe to drop"

When I first heard that, I had no idea what they wer…

OFF THE WORLD/OF THE WORLD

Dear Reader,

This morning, as I took my dog for a walk, or maybe he took me for a walk, the jury is out on that one,

I got to thinking of my Monday feelings and how I had got myself into such a pit.

I wondered what had happened to me.

Suddenly, I realized!

I have been too much "of the World" since the end of February, this is what!

I have followed the News, read several newspapers, generally, alright obsessively, kept myself "informed".

Only, I did not, I got myself overwhelmed with stuff…

What to do when Despair strikes

Dear Reader,

You know I hold the torch for hope but, seriously?


This morning, as I was walking the dog/meditating/mulling over my feelings, the only thing I could find was despair.

I was horrified.

You see, I don't generally do despair.

I do hope and pulling myself together, looking on the bright side and all the sweetness in the world.


But this morning,

Just for that walk,

I could only find despair.


So I used EFT Tapping*, because this is what I do. Tapped on the fingers points a…

Uncertainty?

Dear Reader

Between 1968 and 1974, every March, when the rumbling started, my Dad would go down to the supermarket and return with boxes of tinned food.

As the news got grimmer and grimmer with potential war threats in Palestine, the East, or insurrection in France itself, my dad would unpack the boxes. There were special shelves in the garage. To this day, I cannot abide tinned ravioli...

We also had petrol stockpiled in the garage, so we could get away to my grandparents in the country if n…
