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...

This has been an incredibly stressful month for me. Now I am utilizing Reiki on a daily basis to combat stressors! Daily meditations and Smiling Mind app is very helpful. Waking up at 5am and trying to fall back asleep often is very difficult but using the Smiling Mind app is very helpful and effective. Other ways to combat stress are simple things like walking your pets. This gives you a well needed break and some wonderful exercise for your dog! Gardening is also a wonderful way to energize...

Finally, a perennial is growing in the garden! I bought this plant at a local sale and it is extremely hardy. This is a challenging time looking out at the garden-it does look a bit gloomy. Due to the cold weather the bulbs and all trees are slower than usual. However, now is a good time to tidy up all those branches and plan where to move your perennials -once they start growing! I also have started geraniums indoors and am encouraged by how well they are doing. Geraniums are a great hardy...

Springtime has finally arrived and the birds have decided to come to the garden! I added a new bird feeder to the mix recently and it has been vacant for too long. Now it is Disneyland for birds in the yard. The garden looks dreadful right now. However, this is the perfect time to evaluate areas that need improvement to make this the best season yet. Starting seeds indoors is a great way to bring some beautiful flowers into your garden. Stokes Seeds have a fabulous catalogue and the seeds are...

The Christmas holidays are a magical time of spending time with those you love and appreciating the togetherness. This is an ideal time for reflection upon your path. Especially, after a hectic holiday season from buying last minute gifts to braving the crowds on boxing day. Boxing day is a great day to organize your papers, tidy up some closets or -that pot drawer you have been avoiding all year. Clearing your physical space helps clear your mind of clutter. Take some time today and meditate...
