Welcome Ostara!

Our school Easter holiday is almost over, but we have the promise of a family wedding before returning to school, which will be the perfect chance for a party. It has been a rather busy holiday, mainly consumed with domestic tasks, but it has been pleasant, nonetheless. My children and I have managed to spend time with all the grandparents, and we attended a couple of fun activity sessions at our local library. My elder daughter felt a little bit old for “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt,” but she joined in with her little sister, and she was very happy to receive a lump of slime. And then there was the Easter crafts afternoon, where the children decorated egg cups to look like bunnies, played themed bingo, and hunted for chicks around the library.

Welcome, Ostara!

While I haven’t been able to access my box of Easter/Ostara decorations (they are in the loft and I’m too much of a wimp to climb up there), I feel ready for the festive weekend. It was very satisfying to work in our garden, mowing the grass and putting out plants that I have cultivated in my greenhouse. My rhubarb crop is thriving, and the shrubs that I cut back in Autumn are now bursting to life, which fills me with confidence for my new-found interest in gardening. I can see a new obsession growing… Which leaves me to say Ostara Blessings, my friends. May your world grow vibrant as we move forward into a cheerful season.

NHS Nurse Werewolf Lieutenant?! #TheRedcliffeNovels

Have you read It’s Complicated yet? This cheeky short story comes from the perspective of NHS nurse Sally Frost as she navigates her busy life in Redcliffe, Cornwall. By day (or night) she is a dedicated NHS hospital nurse, and when she’s not in her day job, she works as pack lieutenant for the Redcliffe werewolves. And she is in love with the alpha, Danny Mason, naturally, but he cannot commit to one person. There is another lieutenant, Simon Bunce, and while he and Sally are good friends, she knows that Danny will always choose Simon over her when it comes to love, and other activities…

Words from the Author

I have always been fascinated by the vampire myth and wrote my dissertation on vampires for my university degree. Contrary to popular folklore, I have always viewed vampires as a romantic and misunderstood creature, although I do not doubt their ability to kill and destroy. To me they represent the primitive, dangerous part of ourselves that humans prefer to ignore.

I’m a Reiki Practitioner!

I celebrated one very special achievement last week: I obtained my certificate for Okuden Reiki 2nd Degree, following a long period of time to study and complete coursework requirements. It means that I may now practice as a professional reiki therapist if I should choose. I am still not ready for that leap, but it will develop naturally I am sure.

I'm a Reiki Practitioner SpookyMrsGreen

My main reason for studying Reiki energy healing was for myself. I began meditating and practising affirmations approximately fifteen years ago, when I discovered Louise L Hay’s famous book, You Can Heal Your Life. Since then I dedicated my spare time to practicing self-care. It has not been easy, as I am sure you can imagine. We are raised to believe that we should always put other people’s needs before our own, but I have learned that sometimes that is simply not practical. We cannot care for other people if we have not cared properly for ourselves. And that is where reiki energy healing comes into its own. We can harness the natural energy of the world and use it to heal our bodies from within. If we open our minds and hearts, we can begin to break down old habits and patterns of behaviour and remove mental and emotional blocks that might be manifesting as physical disorders.

Reiki energy healing does not simply cure all of your ailments. Far from it. Sometimes you might experience a very powerful reiki healing session (as I did last week with my study group), and it will manifest as a short illness or unusual sensations. This means that your body is working hard to remove something toxic from within, and you must allow time to rest and recuperate as appropriate. I am currently experiencing the symptoms of a cold and a painful sore throat, which I believe came about as a combination of the reiki healing session, and my poorly five-year-old daughter. Darn kids and their germs! I am using directed reiki healing to ease my discomfort, but mostly I will allow the virus to run its course, and I will feel a lot better once it has passed and taken away whatever I was holding onto internally. Have you experienced the healing wonder of reiki? What do you think about it?

Easter Wedding Plans

We are counting down the days to our school holiday (only four more left), and my family is preparing for a wedding on Easter weekend. It is extra specially exciting because my husband has the honour of giving away his sister to her fiancé, and I know he is very proud to do it. His dad will be there, but he is severely disabled with a brain injury and is unable to fulfill the patriarchal duty. It is a sad fact, but one that we are learning to live with.

Easter Wedding Plans

Anyway, I recently managed to find my dress for the wedding, and I am even more happy because it is a size smaller than I would normally wear. Clearly my new job as a dog walker is paying off, in more ways than one! My dress is from Wallis, purchased at a lovely old department store in Northwich, Cheshire, and it was an absolute bargain, having been reduced quite significantly for clearance. It is purple, and I will wear it with a pair of black shoes that I bought on sale in Dorothy Perkins. They have sparkly bows to add the bling factor, and I decided to finish the outfit with a fascinator, which is something I have never worn before. Our daughters have their “Designers at Debenhams” dresses hung in the wardrobe waiting, and they each have new white shoes for the wedding, and flowery headbands.

Do you have plans for the Easter holidays? Aside from the big wedding, we will be helping my in-laws to relocate as they move to our town and into a bungalow where they plan to spend their retirement. This will be a big transition for my mother-in-law, but a much needed one, and hopefully she will be able to spend more time with her grandchildren once she settles in her new home. My father-in-law doesn’t really know what is happening, but he always wanted to move closer to us, so we know he would be happy with the arrangement. I want to fit in a couple of day-trips with the children around all this activity, but first they need a rest after a very busy and hard-working Spring term at school. Roll on the holidays!

My Spiritual Journey: Something is Shifting

Life has settled down after several years of drama and challenges. I can’t remember life before children, but since we had them, it feels like we have been constantly on the move. I don’t mean physically, I simply mean moving along with the rhythm of life and children. During the past eight years we have experienced births, deaths, career development, personal tragedy, moving house, money worries and all the other nuances of modern life. We are just an average family trying to get by. But inwardly I have changed. I am still changing. And now I can feel the shift. You might understand what I mean by that. We all experience mood swings, many of us are familiar with mental health challenges in all their forms. Sometimes we feel settled and happy in our lives, other times we feel restless, bored or even angry with our situation. I have experienced all of that during the past fifteen years, and now I am ready for a break.

Something is Shifting

I am very proud to report that I have now completed my coursework requirements to qualify as a reiki practitioner. I will be certified in Okuden 2nd Degree reiki, with Japanese lineage. I have worked very hard to develop my connection to Source energy, and I continue to do so. Reiki isn’t something you pick up for a session and then put away until next time. Once we are connected, we will always feel the energy. What we do with that connection is up to the individual, and I intend to continue my work and progress along my spiritual journey. My life has changed again recently, and this time definitely for the better. I feel settled, more in control, and more understanding about the way events have unfolded. I feel I have centred myself and am finally a part of the world I inhabit, rather than being an outsider. Does that make sense to you? It is hard to explain, but I feel that perhaps I never really settled on the Earth plane until I developed my meditation practice. Gradually I learned to ground myself, and now I finally feel a real connection to my place, both physically and spiritually. I will continue to practice reiki and see where the journey leads next. But first, I will enjoy my current place in the world. It is a very happy place!
