Actions speak louder

25 Jul 2016

Actions speak louder than words. Something my mum periodically quoted and I believe she was right; the majority of us will fail to reach anywhere near the podium as our words tend to speak louder than our actions; with no intentions of an action in sight.

We’re masters at talking the talk, but nowhere near that when it comes to walking the walk, acting on what we say, but there’s no point in talking if we’re not prepared to act. Whatever we say …

Addressing our past

23 Jul 2016

Food for thought: Instead of us constantly talking about our past, perhaps we need to do something about it. That doesn’t mean we should go and right a wrong with someone we have a problem with, but instead we must think about how we can change our perceptions …

How the emotions work

22 Jul 2016

As a child I spent my life observing my emotions. It was my way of righting a wrong, a way for me to understand and for me to understand that I didn’t need to copy other people’s not so good behaviour.

Critical evaluation

21 Jul 2016

Opinions & opinions

19 Jul 2016

It must also be difficult for those who are born normally, then have something happen; for them to have to adapt into something that physically and emotionally changes them …

Acknowledging emotional pain

17 Jul 2016

To heal emotional pain we need to first acknowledge we have it, but where that may seem obvious, some of us are not always aware of what that pain is; whilst others are in denial they have any; that what they feel has nothing to do with them; their past; or life experiences.

That isn’t true of course. We all will have varying degrees of emotional pain or trauma in our energy field. Some of us might be aware of what those symptoms are, but others may not know, solely …
