• Christopher Robin

    I recently saw the film Christopher Robin. I dont tend to look at reviews as often in the past I have enjoyed films with bad reviews and not enjoyed films with rave reviews. I gather from a friend after seeing the film, that this one did not receive very good reviews.

    It is certainly not one that I would encourage people to go and see at the cinema. In the early stages I did find it very slow and wondered why on earth I was sitting through it and whether I should in fact leave and make better use of my time. However, I felt in the end that it did have a very good message, although I also wondered how many people who did sit through it would recognise the message that it was imparting and take notice of it.

    For me, the very important message of this film, was that people have lost balance in their lives. Long work days have taken over from what really matters which is connection and relationships with family and that everyone needs to take time out/holidays away from work for their health and well being.

    We have become a society that lives to work, rather than one, that works to live. We are expected to be available 24/7 to read and answer emails or texts. People are working long hours, with little or no socialor family time because they are frightened of losing their jobs to someone else who is prepared to do the hours.

    Children are struggling in school. There are children starting school in nappies because they are not toilet trained. Huge numbers of our adolescents are suffering depression. The number of suicides has increased. People are finding it hard to start or keep a relationship. All health issues have increased. Many people are living on convenience food or takeaways because they dont believe they have time to cook.

    Is it time to rethink our values?

    I had a conversation with someone recently where I said that I can just imagine what an alien who landed here, in the UK anyway, would think. They would look at the people squashed on commuter trains in rush hour, or sitting in queues of traffic, going to buildings where they sit in offices, often staring at computers all day, and they would laugh at us. Is this what life is about?

    How would you like your life to be?

    What are your values?

    Does your life reflect those values?



  • Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything.

    Maybe it's unbecoming everything that isn't you so that you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.



  • The healing power of the sun

    I was guided many weeks ago now to get out into the sun as often as I was able.

    I have not really made use of my garden since moving here up until this year, but earlier in the year having redecorated my house and having redone the garden, I bought a new garden chair. My old furniture had rusted beyond repair. It was a very good purchase and gives me a comfortable chair that is ready and available for me to sit on whenever an opportunity arises.

    The only downside to my attempts to enjoy the sun and the garden is a neighbour who uses her garden to smoke on an extremely regular basis. Burning citronella candles helps to take the cigarette fumes.

    Anyway, my point of writing is about the healing powers of the sun. Since my guidance in meditation to take advantage of the suns rays, I have also been guided to read several books on the healing power of the sun. These have come to me from different directions as one of my close friends was diagnosed with breast cancer and I have been doing more research into cancer as well.

    Many of us have become fearful of the sun and the risk of skin cancer. However, as with most things, I think that human beings can use the things we have been given to help us in the wrong way, thus making them harmful.

    If we spend 50 weeks a year inside a building and then go on holiday for 2 weeks sitting from breakfast to dinner in the sun our skin is very likely to object and burn and make ourselves susceptible to skin cancer.

    However, before the discovery of antibiotics, the sun was used in a measured way to heal many illnesses including tubercolosis. There is now good reason to believe that it can heal many issues including breast and other cancers.

    Our bodies need Vit D to be fully healthy. Our bodies are unable to absorb the vitamin D which we obtain from sunlight if we are either not outside in it or if we are covered in sun tan lotion. A low level of vitamin D has shown to be responsible for many health issues. The further we are from the equator the more likely we are to be deficient in this important vitamin and there is some suggestion that most people in the UK if tested would show low levels. Many people are now taking a supplement but the body is not able to assimilate a supplement in the same way as it is does directly from the sun.

    So, if you are able to be in the sun for short periods of time so as not to burn throughout the year it will help you to remain fit and healthy.

    There have been doctor led programmes on the television recently suggesting that people should get outside and walk for half an hour every day to help with the ageing process, maybe this is not so much about the walking itself, but being outside in the sunlight and breathing fresh air.

    Being out in nature as much as possible is one of the tantric practices.



  • Google

    I am finding it more and more difficult to understand the behaviour of some people.

    In the last few months, I have received numerous calls to my home number from scammers impersonating BT and HMRC, even though my number is ex directory and on a daily basis I am receiving scam emails. I have had money taken from my account by someone in China, which I am still trying to claim back.

    Since starting this business I have found that there appears to be some people who just want to mess about with regard booking.

    I have now discovered that someone that has never been a client, someone I have never even met has put a review against my business on google of one star. It would seem that this person is possibly a massage therapist in another part of the country.

    I wonder why there are people who feel the need to try and cause problems for others for no reason.



  • Donald Trump

    As anyone who knows me will know I do not follow politics. I follow my intuition and continue to hope and pray that there is a higher purpose behind whoever is elected.

    I am aware that many people dislike President Trump and whereas I may well not enjoy spending time with him, if i were given that opportunity, I do believe that he has been put into power for our highest good.

    I have long believed that the governments, news etc are controlled by a higher unseen power that does not have the best interests of the populaton at heart. President Obama even let slip in an interview that he was being controlled. My personal belief is that President Trump with his character will not allow himself to be controlled in the same way.

    But, my point of writing today, is that on Friday morning, I happened to turn on the tv to watch a programme that i had recorded about Ancient Aliens and saw a little of a discussion between Piers Morgan and the female presenter, with regard the huge balloon of Donald Trump as a baby., which was to be flown over the Houses of Parliament. I do not know the details of this, but my life and my work are about love and respect and it is beyond me how anyone could think that that was OK. We worry about children being bullied and as adults we allow that? In my mind, whatever your own personal opinion of the man, it was a hugely disrespectful act and one that I believe was supported and allowed by people that we are putting our trust in to work for our best interests and on this occasion I am certainly in agreement with Piers Morgan.

    We may be living an illusion that we are all seperate but we are the microcosm of the macrocosm. Each of us an individual cell of a bigger body, so to speak. The world we live in would be a different place, if love and respect was shown to the earth that we live on and the people we share it with.
