1. Stuck

      Seems like we’re all stuck in fight, fight or freeze mode. This is what happens when we feel threatened. Afraid. Unsure. Scared. We get stuck in sympathetic response. This type of response is lifesaving if we’re being chased by a bear, or our house is on fire. But it’s not useful or healthy to be […]

  2. Hands on Healing

    Did you know I’m a Reiki Master/Teacher? Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a “laying on of hands” and is based on the idea that life force energy flows through us. If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick […]

  3. Tapping Made Simple

    I’m sharing this because right now everyone can use this awesome tool to help with stress levels plus I seem to be talking about this a lot lately. We’re all operating from a place of heightened awareness with our sympathetic nervous system stuck in fight/flight/freeze. Not good on so many levels… By using Tapping (EFT) […]

  4. Something different

    As you’ve heard me say before, I really limit my consumption of social media. Actually all media (main stream) since we don’t get the paper, have a TV or listen to the radio. So I’m surprised when I notice how much the crazy energy of the world effects me. Not hard to jump to the conclusion that everyone […]

  5. Just Breathe

    It’s the times we’re living in. Many days it seems overwhelming. Often I feel like I’m waiting to wake up and then I realize I am awake. The negativity, the fear, the stories being told. The stories that aren’t being told and need to be. Who to listen to. Who and what to trust. You know […]

  6. Roadside musings

    Since I walk and or cycle everyday in our village I notice what’s going on. Especially along the side of the road because…well …that’s not only quite visible to me but the most interesting place for our dog. While Kevin, our Alaskan Malamute, is sniffing and exploring, I’ve been noticing the abundance of plant life […]

  7. Feeling all the feelings!

    I’m committed to thirty days of emotional detox! I’m feeling all the feelings and letting them go! And with everything that’s going on in the world, there’s no better time. Here’s what I’ve learned about feelings versus emotions because lets face it, we all use the terms interchangeably. And no wonder, there can be a […]

  8. I am not afraid

    I’m finding it interesting that a song known as the unofficial anthem of the labour and civil rights movement has been stuck in my head for over a month. Lets face it there’s a lot going on “out there” right now. Lots of finger pointing, lots of fear, lots of information from so many different […]

  9. Me time

    A couple weeks ago someone suggested to me that I do something just for me, something fun. I was stumped, or maybe stunned…. First, It was my daughter who said it to me. Second, when I thought of something just for me, I had a hard time coming up with something. And third, fun?? The […]
