Signs of our loved ones

Whether you believe in spirit guides or not, our spirit guides deliver little signs that our loved ones are trying to communicate with us, that they’re still around us. When something good happens or we’re struggling and just need help, our spirit guides deliver signals that remind us that our loved ones aren’t far away. That never diminishes.

Something I’d been working on with my site came good. Whilst taking a trip out to Boston Spa that same day, little messages began to show me that my parents weren’t far  away. The car driving …

When souls connect

The soul is what we have in common and yet we spend a lifetime in relationships thinking we have nothing in common with the people we share our lives with, but perhaps that’s not altogether true. If we’re with the right person, our souls will connect.

Bridging the gap

The problem with Cerebral Palsy as I see it, is that none of us will ever have an explanation of exactly how our brain damage manifests itself, or works.

Even with a diagnosis, the Specialists don’t know exactly how our brain damage presents. With Cerebral Palsy, a diagnosis doesn’t end there because each Cerebral Palsy brain is affected differently …

Parents’ perceptions

Our parents’ perceptions of us and how they see and behave towards us, will be the same way we see and behave towards our own children.
