Passing over

26 Oct 2016

It’s a fact that we live and we die that we cannot live forever and  although the whole passing thing can be daunting and put fear into us, there is something about someone’s passing that helps us draw comfort as long as we come to understand.

Religion has nothing to do with the after-life. There is this life and there is the spirit world, which is where we go when we pass. When it comes to a loved one’s passing, our loved ones are never …

Square peg, round hole

25 Oct 2016

Dealing with sensory issues is like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Unless the peg matches perfectly, in practicalities and looks; the issues that bring me to that place will never be a good fit. It’s how sensory issues work.

It may seem trivial and over the top to someone who doesn’t deal with sensory issues through brain damage, but it’s the biological and physical issue that I have to deal with; that can make the issues …

The wrong mediation, will often result in a falling out, through a lack of cooperation and communication.

Fighting our corner

21 Oct 2016

We spend our lives fighting our corner, having to defend ourselves; through conversations taken place that we don’t agree with, where we’re told what to do, or simply given a fait accompli. You get the picture.

It stems from a lifetime growing up, in families; through sibling rivalry; miscommunication; a society that expects conformity; with us being coerced into thinking and believing what we’re …

Quick ‘n’ easy exercises

19 Oct 2016

We all know that exercising regularly has numerous benefits. When we exercise, the brain releases chemicals that help improve our mood and reduce depression.

Unfortunately, we often find it difficult to follow a scheduled workout routine due to time restraints, lack of focus; or simply because we’re feeling lazy.

TV Exercising

If you spend a lot of time watching television, then a fitness ball may be the solution. By sitting on a ball instead of in your armchair, you’ll strengthen your core muscles and improve balance without …

Freedom to choose

18 Oct 2016

My blogs are about freedom, but without healing we will never have the emotional freedom to choose. Freedom represents peace having derived from a willingness to challenge our existence and how we choose to live. Freedom for us to choose a different way to think, as long as we stick with it.

A freedom to change the things we don’t agree with. Freedom to see things the way they are, rather than the way we want them to be. The freedom to make a difference in a world where we’re …

Apologise or walk away?

17 Oct 2016

It’s sad how when push comes to shove, people choose to walk away from relationships, rather than offer an apology if we’ve done wrong and put things right.

On our part it takes more effort to walk away, than it does to actually apologise. No one is infallible. Perhaps it’s better to centre our ego on what’s right so that our integrity stays intact, rather than …
