Colour Your Day

I share LOTS of self healing tools in my memoir  “Watching the Daisies” This is one of my favourites: I ALWAYS begin my day with a colour visualisation; I have done so for many years and I find it helps me stay centred through the good times and the not so good.

International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day, a global initiative aimed at empowering women, which originated from a Socialist political event in New York, way back in 1909. International Women’s Day celebrated its centenary in 2011, a hundred years after Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland began their support of causes for women. In 1975, it was celebrated in the United Nations for the first time, […]

Stopping the World

A HUGE “Thank you” to everyone who sent kind messages after my post Time Out  I really appreciate your support. I envisaged taking a few days out, but my Spirit needed longer… I travelled back to my father’s death back in 1995 from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – a terrible disease that ravaged his poor body, settling in his bones and causing him immense pain […]
