Wishing for the Moon

Hello you,

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

Hello you!

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…

Hello you!


I hope the end of the summer is treating you well. There is a serious nip in the air in Ireland and the blackberries are plentiful. Time to get my jelly making equipment out!


But before I do that, I wanted to carry on talking about names. It has been a long saga and this may or may not be the last of my blogs on the topic, who know what will be revealed next? At the grand old age of 66, I still marvel at the way things unravel, how magic happens in my life and how, again and aga…

self soothing

Hello you,

 

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.

OK?

 

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 …

CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 4

Dear Reader,

 

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 …

Good news?

Dear Reader,

Have you been listening to the news, lately?

We should call them The Bad News because, lets face it, it all about whatever is wrong on this world and frankly, there is so much of it I want to hide under my bed most mornings!

In the olden days, at the end of the BBC News, there was always some silly item of Good News to somehow leave you with a bit of a smile. Some giraffe had given birth or someone had done something nice.

All gone now.

So, what to do?

I mean, what to do if th…

CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 3

Dear Reader,

How are you finding the series of blog posts of Food Cravings?

Did I tell you that it is because I knew about the feelings that made me overeat that I started following my own Body Magic Program again in March 2020?

As the world was locking itself up and people were terrified of all sorts of horrible things happening to their families, I thought to myself.


What do I do when I feel anxious/sad/angry?

 

I eat too much!

Do I want to put on weight again? NO!


So, I started us…

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…
