Why Reiki Won’t Cure a Cold

I used to think that Reiki was a magical, mysterious energy that healed anything and everything. But I didn’t think about it properly. Yes, reiki does heal you. It is a very powerful, magical and mysterious energy. But you cannot expect it to simply cure all physical ailments, just like that. No, we must do the healing for ourselves, using reiki energy as a tool. It won’t work if we don’t attempt to help it along. And it is an ongoing process, often taking years to implement and more years still to continue.

Take the common cold for an example. I am just recovering from a summer cold that I caught from my children. Darn those school germs! My husband had the cold and sore throat as well, so it was inevitable that it would reach me in the end. Of course, I called on reiki to help me shift it. But the illness lasted for almost a week. And that is because I was exhausted. I was burned out.

We are limping to the end of the school term (only a few more days now), I am all cried out with emotion as I deal with the transition from preschool to primary school for my youngest daughter, and I am stressed about the lack of sales interest on our house. Won’t somebody please buy our house soon so that we can move to a bigger one? We need space! And all of this together contributed to me catching a cold. I had neglected to eat healthily, I wasn’t exercising properly, and I haven’t had enough sleep. I need a break. I need a holiday. And that will happen very soon.

No More Preschool

This is it! The end of the school summer term. The end of our academic year. And the end of an era for my little girl, and for me. No more preschool. In September, I will take both my daughters to primary school, and life will never be the same again. They are no longer babies. There will be no more pushchair, no more nappies, and I will only have to do one school run, five days per week. My routine will be different. I will be different.

We have reached our limit for now. My children and I are exhausted, as are many other families all over the UK and beyond. I never appreciated before just how tiring it is to do the school run every day, never mind being a teacher or a pupil. It was different when I was a child, of course. I don’t really remember it. But I have huge respect for our teachers, all of them, and the school staff. Well done for working in such a demanding and responsible environment, and for still putting up with the associated aggravations that come with the job. Have a great summer everyone. We all deserve it!

#365DaysofTarot Studying The Star

I will admit that my #365DaysofTarot challenge is faltering a little, but I am determined to see it through to the end. My Tarot reading practice is important to me, and while I struggle at the moment due to domestic challenges and end of term exhaustion, I have to keep working with my Tarot cards.

On my Sunday Tarot reading, I pulled out The Star from the the DruidCraft Tarot deck. I love the image on this card, not least because I like to think that she represents me. Our bodies have a similar shape and appearance, and she exudes a sensual, peaceful confidence that I would like to emulate. She works steadily at her task, knowing that while it might seem pointless to someone else, it is of great importance to her because of the greater implications. She sees the bigger picture. She understands her place in the world, and how her work affects change and evolution.

dav

My message from The Star Tarot card in this reading was as follows:

“All you need to be is now. Simple, calm, fulfilled in all aspects of your life. It is all falling into place. You are confident and content.”

Yes, I accept that reading. While I am tired from the daily routine, and I am a little stressed because our house won’t sell and we can’t find another, I know that everything will do what it needs to, when the time is right. For now, I shall allow myself to sit back and enjoy the moment. Now is all we have.

A Day Out to the Hobbycrafts Show @thecraftshows

Crafting has always been a big part of my life, so it is no surprise that my daughters have inherited my love for creativity. My mum is a seamstress and fabric crafter, and while I have tried knitting and sewing in the past, my preference is with card making. I also dabble in bead jewellery making, but this has fallen into the background for now.

My mum and I make time to visit the ICHF Sewing and Hobbycraft exhibitions in Manchester and Birmingham. It has become a good opportunity for us to spend time alone together away from home, and reconnect with our passion for craft. Last week we took my eldest daughter with us. She first attended a Hobbycraft show with us when she was a baby, around ten months old, and this time she was far more involved with the activities. She discovered the joy of glitter and acetate stamping, PixelArt, and Decopatch.

It was wonderful to sit with my daughter as she tried out these new crafts and learned new techniques. We came home with Pixel Hobby kits, a new decopatch project, acetate designs to use with the glitter and glue that we already have at home, new paints, stamps, and all sorts of other goodies. I am already looking forward to our next Hobbycrafts event later this year, where we will prepare for the Christmas season.

Bargain Books for Summer @Waterstones

Are you packing your suitcase yet? Do you still take good old-fashioned paperback books, or are you a Kindle convert? I admit that I do a little of both. There are some books that I have to hold in my hand, smell the pages, stroke the cover, and gaze adoringly upon as it sits on my bookshelf. You know what I mean! And that is why my novels are all available in paperback and eBook formats, because I like to read both kinds, and I want my readers to do the same.

Waterstones Summer Books

Simply ask for them by title, or request them online, and you can have them delivered to your door, or your local Waterstones branch, and take them away on holiday.

My Spiritual Journey: Fond Memories and Magical Moments

Life is a little bit chaotic at present. We are at the end of the school summer term, preparing for big changes when my youngest daughter joins the school system. I just released a brand-new novel, and am the process of networking, doing the sales thing, and writing the other books in the series. Our house is still for sale, and despite a few people coming to view it, so far nobody wants to buy. So, we are stuck in a place that is getting smaller as my children grow bigger.

Amidst the chaos of domestic life, where I simultaneously try to nurture a family, support my husband through career challenges, build my own career, and find time for myself, I have reiki. While I don’t find time to sit and meditate at length every day, I at least try to find five or ten minutes here and there to focus my breathing, calm my thoughts, and bring in the healing energy. Sometimes I indulge in a good cry. Sometimes I laugh uncontrollably. The emotion must be released, and acknowledged. I always feel better afterwards.

dav

Yesterday I received a reiki empowerment from my reiki master. I sat in a sacred space, surrounded by fellow students of the craft, and we all experienced the energy differently, and privately. Some needed to cry. Some smiled and welcomed the gentle healing effects. For me it was all about the spirit world. Yes, my ghosts came back to haunt me. Well, they never really went away. Only this time I spoke to a recent ghost, one that I knew years ago. He was content, at peace, and when he left, I felt a sudden sense of realisation.

It all took me back to a beach in Looe, Cornwall, about twelve years ago. I can’t remember the exact date. I was young and in love. I took some photos of my fiancé and our friends as they dug holes on the beach and played in the sand (we were all in our early twenties, apart from my father-in-law). My attention was drawn to the scenery, in particular a hill at the far end of the beach, covered with forest that sloped down to the sea. Back then I was never going to be an author. Those aspirations were far beyond me. But something stuck in my mind. That was the moment when Redcliffe was born. And here is the photo that inspired a British paranormal romance series. Pretty cool, huh?

Clarks Shoes Big Summer Sale!

Clarks shoe shop is one of those heritage brands that I have grown up with. My parents bought Clarks shoes for me and my siblings when we were children, and now I do the same for mine. We venture out to the shops and have the girls’ feet measured, and then they choose new shoes (or sandals or boots, depending on the season).

Clarks Big Summer Sale

As it happens, my youngest daughter needs sandals now, but her feet will need measuring again. And my oldest daughter is about to burst out of her school shoes, although I will eke them out for the last few weeks of term. Oh yes, the expense! Fortunately, Clarks have launched a HUGE summer sale. I mean, you can find some excellent bargains. And you get FREE standard delivery on all orders. I am off to hunt for kids’ sandals now. Have a lovely day!

#365DaysofTarot A Summer Solstice Tarot Reading

My Summer Solstice Tarot reading seemed rather big and important this year, so I thought it was time for an update on my #365DaysofTarot challenge. I trust that the Tarot reading resonates with you!

dav

1, The Fferyllt

Your creative energy flows naturally and now is the time to merge it with your Other Self. As your soul and your mind connect, your dream will be realised. Trust in the process, and free yourself to experience it.

2, The World

Completion of your project will leave you feeling fulfilled and satisfied. A weight is lifted as you observe the final product, and you may anticipate some rest and relaxation during the summer months.

3, The Wheel

As you see the circle of this particular phase of life nearing completion, so you feel relaxed and peaceful about what is to come. This is the cycle of life, and you are happy to play along.

4, The Hermit

Once the dust has settled and your daily activity is not so demanding, you may retreat for a while and take some spiritual rest and relaxation. This is for you, so make the most of it.
