You can’t out run or out numb your feelings

Spot on that woman!     Good and bad emotions Hurrah for Susan David and all the other people out there giving us permission to feel our feelings. Not only have we grouped them into good and bad we then use this hierarchy to judge which we can express and which must be pushed away,

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

Expectations

Unless we look we may not even see the bars of the cages which confine us the expectations that actually rule our lives. They may be so embedded in us from our childhoods that they have become how we operate in the world. We are no-longer aware of our cage. Layered on top of all

The Agony of Trying to Get Pregnant

I recently watched a programme about single and gay women trying to get pregnant with donor sperm from Denmark. You can buy the frozen sperm on-line and inseminate yourself, travel there for the procedure, or you can go through IVF treatment. Watching this programme reminded me of my own journey to pregnancy. Unlike these women

The Divine Within

Today I sat down for my morning routine with a heavy heart. My daughter leaves home today for boarding school and it has triggered a lot of different and difficult feelings for me. Since I felt so “full” I chose to tap using EFT before attempting to meditate. This is something I recommend as it

Even Though….

“Even though x y or z I deeply and completely love and accept myself.” Every EFT session begins this way. The dictionary definition of “even” states “it is used to show that something is surprising, unusual, unexpected, or extreme.”  This makes sense to me; so many of us are not at all used to feeling
