Getting ‘Better’   

I am a keen observer; I always have been. My entire life I have observed people and situations and learnt a lot from my observations. And one of the things I have observed very closely is that we often appear to get ‘better’ but not truly heal what is there to heal. Continue reading “Getting ‘Better’   “

Be Gentle – What??!!

When I first came across the Gentle Breath Meditation™ at the Universal Medicine presentations and courses in 2007, I could not get into it. I’d tried many different styles of meditation and always felt like I was going through the motions and would either fall asleep or feel agitated at the end of it (now that’s quite an oxymoron!). I was always the one in a group that ‘didn’t get it’ when everyone else was having what sounded like amazing experiences during their meditation. Continue reading “Be Gentle – What??!!”

The Science of Movement

One of the most powerful and profound teachings to come through Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine is that we don’t think. We think we think, but our thoughts are fed to us by the quality of energy we align to through the quality of how we are moving. Therefore, our thoughts are informed by our movements.

Presence in the City

Some people say that after growing up in the country they would never live in a city or if they had to move there for work, they could not be happy…

Alzheimer’s Disease and a Moment of Connection

Alzheimer’s disease is described as an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest of tasks.

My uncle had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease four years ago at the age of 70 and his condition has been on a rapid decline since then. His symptoms included severe confusion, severe loss of memory, especially short-term memory, difficulty with speech and difficulty carrying out simple tasks such as using a remote control or telephone. He recently moved to a nursing home, but my aunt missed him too much, so after four weeks there she took him back home and organised extra support.

Losing Myself in Music

This is a phrase we hear a lot and it is often what many people want to achieve when they go out dancing. It has often been my motivation – to forget about life’s problems for a few hours, no stress or anxiety, just moving with the rhythm and the bassline. It seems like a wonderful moment of bliss… and it is… but at what cost? Continue reading “Losing Myself in Music”
