Fenced in …

I got home last night to find my little dog missing. He is a Shih Tzu x Poodle with a gregarious personality. I built a perimeter fence for the very reason of keeping my animals (chooks and dogs) in and providing them safe opportunity to free roam. I felt a little panicked when I checked every … Continued

Hocus Pocus SPELLS to Focus

SPELLS Spells are a way of calling on a higher Deity to assist us to achieve what we most want from life. I am a firm believer that we become what we think about, so therefore I think a lot about how grateful I am; how happy I am; and how I can continue to ensure I am … Continued

Spells for Wellness Journal

SPELLS for Wellness Journal

Keeping a journal, writing down how you feel is wonderful therapy. Particularly when embarking on a program of learning, change, or personal development.

It is very powerful to get thoughts out of our head and onto paper for ongoing analysis and clarity.

Simply bottling up or constantly thinking about things can overwhelm us to the point we start to catastrophise events and situations in our life.

The simple act of taking pen to paper and writing eases the enormity of any given situation and allows us to identify steps we can take to overcome whatever may be occurring. Do you journal?

The Emotional YOU …

The emotional YOU wants, and needs to love and be loved in intimate relationships and with family and friends.  You require a group of like minded friends, playing at whatever feeds your sense of fun and adventure, travelling, dancing, movies, music. The emotional you is being able to own, honour and express your emotions appropriately, … Continued

The value of a HUG!

Friends hugging A good friend of mine was over from Queensland a while back. We hadn’t seen each for many months and made a date to catch up for breakfast. I have never been a hugger. That touchy-feely stuff doesn’t really do it for me, or so I told myself for many, many years. However, as we … Continued
