Easter – what does it mean for you?

I have adapted this from a blog I wrote a few years ago while living on a boat in Greece, it still resonates for me today? Easter was a lovely simple affair, in Greece they don’t go in for the massive commercial take-over of every religious festival like we do in the UK. It’s so

More Low Sugar Treats

More recipe requests prompted this blog post. I attended a wonderful Forest Gardening course at the weekend, hosted by Kintaline Farm and run by Ludwig of Earth Ways. These sort of thing usually involved shared lunches, and lots of tea and biscuits which can be a bit of a problem for me as I don’t

Sugar – tips tools and truth to help you change your relationship to the white stuff.

I have had a love-hate relationship with sugar for years. It began in childhood shaking the white stuff over margarine slathered slices of bread after school, buying big bags of penny buns last thing on a Saturday when they were cheap and  rushing to the sweetie shop with my pocket money to stare in awe

Clean Up Your Act

I’m on Day 28 of  Kelly Brogan MD’s 44 Day Vital Mind Re-set, and I’m LOVING it! It’s far from plane sailing but I’ve been down the detox route before so I knew a little about what to expect. However what I didn’t realise was just how all encompassing her re-set would be. Diet is a

Why did Snowy the rabbit turn up in my tapping?

  I recently completed the Vital Mind Re-Set Course. The dietary changes and other protocols were demanding enough, but perhaps more so was dealing with the limiting beliefs which surfaced. Fortunately I have EFT and Matrix Reimprinting in my life which were excellent tools to help me move through these challenges. During week one I felt worse not better and

Were you helped to deal with your diagnosis? Did someone explain it all, the treatments and procedures? Did they tell you the prognosis, or possible outcomes? How did that feel? Did they then help you with those feelings? Is so then I suspect you are one of the lucky ones because my own experience and

Were you made for these times?

Have you set sail yet? Yesterday I was listening to a meditation by Tara Brach and near the end she read some writing by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.  This writing spoke to me on a deep level. It reminded me to keep going even when times are tough and that I am not alone. There are

If we look after our hurt places we can change the world.

Sometimes we don’t realise how much we have changed until a situation comes along and we find we behave quite differently to how we might have in the past. That’s what happened to me this week. The rain in Argyll can be relentless at times, as you can hear in this video. My upbringing left

Can you put yourself first without feeling guilty?

I have been attempting to do this since late last year, it’s a challenge! Human lives can exert huge amounts of pressure at times and occasionally it feels like too much, we get swamped. That’s what happened to me during early winter last year.  Several difficult events occurred in my life and in the life of those

Why is it important to watch the film Aluna?

I am showing this film Aluna in my community because I believe it carries a powerful message for all of us non-aborigonal people; we, who over many generations, have become so detached and disconnected from the earth we are now complicit in its destruction. Our lives are now constructed in such a way that we
