The baby, the Bathwater, and the New Normal

The baby, the Bathwater, and the New Normal

I thought I’d share with you some reflections that have arisen for me over the last few weeks, based on conversations with clients and fellow practitioners. It strikes me that, as we attempt to make sense of the unprecedented upheaval that Covid-19 has brought with it, we are each doing so with no roadmap and, often, alone...

About Spiritual Health & Happiness

About Spiritual Health & Happiness

For many of us, 2020 didn’t finish (and 2021 didn’t start) with the change or perhaps the relief that we were hoping for. So where to from now? There are a few foundational things we can do for ourselves. If they don´t come naturally at first, take baby steps. Remember they are all gestures of self-care which is so important right now.

Christmas 2020

Christmas 2020

I’ve been scratching my head about how to begin … I could say that I know how you feel after nine months of challenging, or unprecedented, or weird, or bewildering, or turbulent, or painful times. Two problems with this. I’m not sure I do know. And I am running out of adjectives to describe “this year”. They all apply …

In the Midst of Disruption.

In the Midst of Disruption.

First of all, I hope this finds you, at the very least, intact. I know that, for everyone, this has been a time of enormous disruption. For some, it has also been one of loss and sorrow, while others have been in a holding space of enforced introspection.

Reflections on the Nature of Helping

Reflections on the Nature of Helping

Consider the nature of the helping role that many of us take in our professional or personal lives. When we try to help someone else, we generally think in terms of skills, advice, input or practical guidance. So whether you are a plumber or a doctor, this is most likely what you have been trained to do – sort something out.

Reiki as a Gateway to Spiritual Discovery

Reiki as a Gateway to Spiritual Discovery

When I first encountered Reiki, also referred to as Universal Life Force, almost by accident, in 1998, I was in such a place where the changing demands of a job which had once filled my heart with love, had turned into pressure and I was beginning to feel symptoms of stress. It’s not that I didn’t like teaching anymore, I did (and I still do), but ‘something’ was missing.

Do you have a Regular Pause and Rest Practice?

Do you have a Regular Pause and Rest Practice?

As I am working with my clients, I am reflecting on how the main focus of my work is to facilitate new perceptions and perspectives. When you are stressed, it seems that your attention becomes restricted to a narrow perspective. Let’s imagine that you’re looking through a periscope. You push the periscope up and scan the landscape ahead.

When you learn REIKI, you are generally looking for change: change in your health, in your outlook or your circumstances. It is a time of taking stock and moving forward.
