Welcome Spring! A great time of growth and renewal. It is also a time to show yourself some compassion as we start our journey into this new season. We often neglect ourselves and listen to our harsh inner critics when we need to be kind towards ourselves. Often kindness can take the form of carving some time out of our busy schedule and just walking in nature. Listening to the birds and owls and being mindful is often the key to shutting out the noise of the day. We are bombarded with so many...

It is with great sadness that I write about my Uncle Glynn passing this week. He was full of life and always telling funny jokes. He will be truly missed by everyone. Sending reiki blessings and prayers to all as we all collectively grieve the many losses. The year has only begun and we truly are saying too many good-byes. Celebrating the good times and remembering the many meals spent together is a great way to think of those who have passed. Looking through many photos it is with a smile and...

Recently my Great Aunt Vi passed away. I am grateful for all the times spent with her and all the wonderful stories she told us about her travel adventures. Aunt Vi was an inspiration and a supporter of all things hand-made. A gifted painter, I am so happy to have some of her beautiful hand-painted plates. During this start to the New Year as we remember those we lost we must look at our times spent as precious. Sending Reiki blessings to all for the beginning of 2022. Wishing everyone a very...

Only 12 days till Christmas! It is surprising how each year the holidays sneak up on us. The main thoughts during this time turn to how are we going to get everything done before the new year. It is also a time when grief is very prominent as we try and celebrate holidays without some family members. As we navigate family gatherings that can prove quite challenging. Keeping very busy and sticking to routines helps with the stress during this time. Making time to relax, go for a massage and...

As we draw closer to Nov 11th the fall reminds us of change. It is a time to remember those in our families and throughout the world who helped out during wartimes. The soldiers who sacrificed their lives so we may enjoy the freedoms we have today. For everyone who sacrificed during that time in history we thank you. I recently did some historic digging on a map in my possession and I discovered the owner was an RAF pilot who became captured during the war and sent to a POW camp. It is through...

I am happy to announce a new product for sale in the online store. Yoga Mat spray. It has wonderful essential oils of spearmint, lemon and lavender , it smells divine! I created it while looking for something other than white vinegar to wipe my mat down and not as intense as tea tree oil. This spray fits the bill and makes your house smell wonderful! Take some time to enjoy the wonderful warm weather of the summer. It is a time to go to your favorite gelato shop and just breathe.

As we journey through the month of July it is wise to truly engage all the senses in the garden. From the scent of the roses blooming to the feel of the grass on the soles of our feet to the taste of the first raspberries of the season. Not to mention the sites and colours of the growth in the garden. As the lavender starts blooming I am remembering all the trips to the lavender farms with my mother. Those were great memories. During times of grief it is good to reach out back to those good...

Coping with loss is difficult and challenging. There are no stages of grief. How each person grieves is different. You have to do what feels right for you. Not everyone has to be grief-free in a year! Depending on the circumstances surrounding the grief it may take quite some time to feel better. I am dealing with constant grief as my mother has not passed but she is not doing well either. So in this state of limbo you have almost a preparatory grief as you anticipate their passing. So with all...
