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...

As we start the Spring season we look for more ways to keep busy and to start our gardens. I sourced some amazing lettuce seeds from West Coast seeds this year. As you can see they are doing well. I will be transplanting the lettuce into a larger pot so I can start harvesting it! West Coast Seeds has some unique varieties of seeds that are unusual. I am trying out some green onions, cosmos, dragon tongue beans and pink popcorn. This is a time to incorporate your reiki practice into your garden....

Wishing everyone and their families a very happy Christmas! As we gather together this year we are reminded of all the previous celebrations where we could celebrate the season with extended family. Although our gatherings are significantly smaller this year we are thankful and grateful for all the wonderful people in our life. For some who may not be with us right now we send prayers and love and look forward to being together again. Reiki blessings to all!

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.
