We all love a good 'sing-song' and this time of the year we hear the old favourites sounding out whilst out and about, shopping and driving, the familiar voices which herald the spirit of this festive season. There's something very special about carols too, which are a wonderful to sing out loud, or to lightly hum on your breath whilst wistfully feeling the stirrings of nostalgia from the many generations who have sung these songs before, year after year, passing them down through communities, families and friends - timeless classic tunes even connecting strangers in magical mutual harmony.
Autumn in Full Swing
Did you notice it as well? It
was just as though someone had flicked a switch and we transitioned
overnight from Summer into Autumn! One minute I'm in my light and bright
dresses and the next I was having to layer up by comparison, although it is
still relatively warm for this time of the year.
With nature's cycles and the ever familiar seasonal patterns, natural
changes occur with regularity that provides the perfect ingredients to sustain
perfect conditions for life on earth – the BIG picture.
This Easter holiday weekendis no eggseptionand is yet again a wonderful opportunity to ‘down’ tools and dedicate yourself to enjoying being with family and friends. And, even if the nature of your line of work increases during this period delayingyourholiday time-out and your focus is more on your business, it can be so much more enjoyable with a general mood in the air which is noticeably lighter and happier and is eggstremely infectious (food for the soul). I’m sure you’ve noticed… this is especially the case when the sun is shining as it was superbly for a few glorious days last week.
Waves of Prosperity
After the third occasion of picking out the same card ‘waves
of prosperity’ as witnessed by hundreds of viewers now on Facebook Live, as well as thinking "wowzer", I
thought that I really need to write about this subject of wealth, abundance,
prosperity… because clearly this is energetically a powerful time and on some
level if we are not ‘feeling’ it, then something is out of alignment.
Being prosperous and feeling it, can be elusive and indeed
is the case for many.
Nature Reflects Massive Growth and Expansion...
"Spring is the time of plans and
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
The moment the days start to lengthen and with
it the sun shines more bringing warmth to the land. The frosts lessen and we are encouraged
outside to join in with the new beginnings that this glorious season brings to
us as an annual gift of birth and renewal.
Reawakening after our virtual hibernation into Spring with offerings
full of promise, expectation and opportunity.
Worthless or Priceless?
I asked you to rate this very well-known painting from 0 - 10 where 0 is
worthless and 10 is priceless, where would you place it?
Most people know that this beautiful
painting is priceless.
replace the painting with a picture of yourself and rate it once again using
the 0 – 10 scale.
people, especially women, compare themselves to others and as a result don’t
value themselves enough. We have
thoughts that creep in to our mind and feed us with self-doubt.
Women especially find it challenging to press the pause button...
Wouldn't it be amazing if we could just halt time when we felt like it, just as nature does in winter time? A quick press of the pause button to allow ourselves to catch up with whatever we have been chasing at the time.
Compare it to your TV or DVD player which has a pause button. This enables you to exercise choice. You can choose to take a pause, or continue to hurtle along at speed to wherever that maybe.
"I was fortunate to have a ‘wake-up’ call which I believe literally saved my life!"
Traditional healthcare typically focuses on managing symptoms, however, a META-Wellbeing Specialist looks at the whole of someone’s circumstances using META-Health principles as a basis of analysis taking into account all areas of life; using a holistic approach and seeing the bigger picture, then drilling down into the specific details and timeline which have led to health and wellbeing challenges.
META-Wellbeing...Are you enjoying your life and feeling really good?
How aware are you about your health? I mean really aware? As in understanding the natural rhythm of your health and how everything is connected at a deep level?
Sounding a bit too deep?
Let me explain and dive right into it...
The word META is derived from the Greek language and means 'after' or 'beyond'. It is also a prefix added to the name of a subject and designating another subject that analyses the original one but at a more abstract, higher level.
