Around it came again.
Last year as it was fast approaching the end of the year, most were starting the wind down to the Christmas and New Year period: the beginning of December, where Christmas carols are played and decorations put up on display to celebrate the upcoming festive season. “It’s a terrible time of year to have a birthday,” a family member said one day whilst on the subject of going through the timing of birthdays and where everyone in the family fitted in.

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’ “
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!).

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.
