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…
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…
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…
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 …
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 …
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
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…
