As we navigate through the difficult challenging waters of COVID mania we must remember, it is okay to feel stressed. The news constantly bombards us with negative messages or stories that seem to so frivolous they are ridiculous. Sometimes the best thing to do is to turn off the news, take a break from social media and do nothing. Do nothing is often the hardest thing to do. Just sit and follow your breath for a few minutes. Take a walk through the forest -leave the phone at home for once!...

I never thought I would become an expert in grief however as I struggle through these difficult times I learn more ways to cope with challenging emotions. Some ways that have helped me are the free Coronavirus meditations on the One Percent Happier App. These really are very helpful for dealing with stressful times. Practicing regularly twice a day is helpful too. Meditation before sleeping allows you to just be focussed on your breath or sounds and allows you to silence the monkey mind for a...

As we celebrate with family this Easter it is a time for gratitude yet physical distancing. The numbers may be smaller but all our extended family members are with us in our thoughts during this challenging time. Sending distance reiki is a good way to help family members, friends and neighbours who may be isolated during this pandemic. Also sending reiki to all the healthcare workers on the front is a great way to spend all this extra time.

As we continue to cope with the restrictions of COVID-19 and practice social distancing we need to practice some calm in the environment of uncertainty. At the moment, walking the dog seems to be a great way to enjoy the outdoors yet still practice social distancing. Connecting with friends and family on a regular basis and live meditations from 10% happier are a great way to spend the time. Some people are painting rocks in their free time....gardening if possible. I spotted this bunny outside...

As we deal with COVID-19 and handle the protocols to reduce the transmission of the pandemic we find ourselves a bit isolated. However, rather than focus on all the limitations posed by COVID-19 we should focus on how our communities of kindness are helping those who are confined to their homes. Reaching out to neighbours to buy some groceries, picking up the telephone not to text but to actually speak to someone helps with these feelings of isolation. Now more than ever we need to practice...

As we move into the yet another month it is a time to reflect upon recent events and move forward. As I cope with multiple personal losses, it is a time for mindfulness, meditation and forgiveness. Letting go of events which happened and you cannot control is key into moving forward in your life. "Your peace is more important than driving yourself crazy trying to understand why something happened the way it did. Let it go" Davidji Recognizing change is difficult, it is a time now to reach for...

It is with great sadness that I have to say goodbye to Willow who has been apart of my life since 2001. She has supported and assisted in my reiki practices allowing students to practice on her. I have been blessed to have such a wonderful friend in my life. I have been giving her regular reiki sessions that are short to help her through her illness. I will continue to miss her for she made life more interesting as only cats can do! I am grateful for all of our shared experiences, eating ice...

As the new year begins we all face challenges. Dealing with grief has been all encompassing lately. I have been looking for all sorts of solutions to dealing with all this pain. Practicing reiki and mindful meditations have been useful. Also journalling and sharing your story is beneficial. The more you discuss your grief it helps you uncork some of those bottled up emotions. I would like to recommend The Grief Recovery Handbook by John James & Russell Friedman. This is proving to be an...
