Understanding our Attachment and Detachment Styles

Understanding your attachment style (the way you connect with and react to others) is one of the keys to understanding your relationships and beliefs about yourself. Some theorists believe that children develop an attachment style through their interaction with their main caregiver (usually a mother), and this pattern then continues on into their adult relationships […]

We judge ourselves by our intentions, but others by their actions.

Last week, during a session with a lovely client, she spoke of a quote that almost summed up most of our interactions as people; she said (in brief and not word for word): “We judge ourselves by our intentions, and others by their actions.” The quote was new to me, but so very poignant. We […]

If the answer is ‘No’, say ‘No’.

The most powerful and self-preserving word you can own, is the word ‘No’. Too many of us say ‘Yes’ when we mean ‘No’, and even more of us say ‘Yes’ to others, while saying ‘No’ to ourselves. If you feel unable to say ‘No’, tell them that you are unable to answer right now, but […]

The Five Principles of Reiki that lead to peace

Today I am remembering The Five Reiki Principles while practicing some deep breathing… Today WILL be a positive and blessed day, because I will make it one. I) Just for today, I will not be angry.

Well, do you overlook and/or push yourself too hard sometimes? Do others forget about you? Well, do you forget about your […]

“Be there for others, but never leave yourself behind.” – Dodinsky

“Be there for others, but never leave yourself behind.” – Dodinsky We can never fully care for someone else, to the best of our abilities, if we do not care for ourselves first. We are our own example of care; the way you treat yourself, is the example you set for others about how they […]

It is okay to say ‘No’.

It is okay to say ‘No’. It really is. Your promises are a commitment you co-sign your soul to honour. Think wisely before you offer yourself into soul contracts; not everyone needs your signature, and every task/commitment does not need your input. Stop writing cheques that your time/energy/resources and mind can not cash. Doing with […]

You have the power to stop, turn around, and change direction

  Today is going to be a good day! Why? Because I/we have the power to make it a good day. Smile at any difficulties or stresses that the day may present; peacefully let go of the situations you can longer handle or change; and give praise and words of gratitude for the opportunities, blessings, […]
