Have you ever stopped – looking in a mirror to enjoy a true reflection – or is it just a glance to make sure your make-up or hair is ok?

I remember one day being asked just that; “do you look at yourself in the mirror, or is it just a glance?” Of course, I thought, I always look in the mirror ­– or did I? Continue Reading…

Not long ago I attended a Universal Medicine course – Esoteric Healing Level 4 Part 2 where Serge Benhayon taught us the ‘acceptance walk’ – when you walk the ‘real you’, with purpose and focus, staying present with your body (without your mind always wandering off). I found it easy to do this with Serge, and to the music of Glorious Music by Michael Benhayon. Although I ‘practised’ the acceptance walk a lot when I returned home from the course, I realise now that I had never really walked staying present with my body; in other words, I had never truly walked ‘me’.

Every year I get away with my family to an overseas holiday location: I have been doing this for so long that I have lost count of the amount of countries I have visited, the number of sites I have seen and the tours I have been on.

Yes it did in a functional way as in I bathed, clothed and nourished myself daily but more because this is what I’m expected to do, to get me through the day. It wasn’t coming from self-responsibility or with a sense of worth, true support or care for myself.

This self care event helped me reflect on how the choice to provide true support, and really care for myself in a way I haven’t previously, was part of why I had an amazing stay in hospital recently. Continue Reading…

The Power of Choice

I would like to share an experience I had a while back that made me realise just how powerful our choices can be.

I was in London for the weekend to attend the Esoteric Developers Women’s Group, a group that explores what it is like to live as a woman in today’s society. The group presents Women’s Health from a different and non-imposing perspective where taking responsibility for our own wellbeing and our choices is part of the key topics presented.  Continue Reading…
