Chakra first aid.............

A little focus for some Yoga tomorrow x

2014 is dawning...........

The new year is dawning ............... last couple of days I've been a little aware of not soooo healthy patterns of thinking and behaviour. I've reflected on what an amazing year 2013 was been.....I mean amazing...I chose a word for last year and art journalled around it a little it was 'incubate' and whilst I did this I was pretty amazed and grateful at the amount of good energy and energetic experiences I had whilst doing this! I have a little notebook I've been writing in and using the New Years Revolution Tool Kit to examine what and where to place my intention next year....Choosing a word seems important again and I'm torn between 'mindfulness' and 'balance'........... I'd like to feel grateful, content, peaceful and motivated... I know I will be practising more yoga and meditation to bring about balance and I would love to be in a mindset to simplify, de-clutter, break through recurring patterns and overcome triggers for stress, I'd like to plan for more change in work or even early retirement and more importantly is to remain healthy, spending a balanced amount of time with other and alone and walking in nature and getting away to the seaside...putting my sons 21st year feels important to me and I will be reminiscing on 2013 holiday adventures abroad rather than planning nay new ones for this year although I would really like to participate in a u.k. yoga retreat ........2014 will be a year of doing what I love and enables me to feel good continue to be grateful and kind............lots of art journalling in progress and all my creating for others is complete for now so some arty playtime over the next couple of days to compliment those lovely walks with Chel are how I choose to start 2014.........

art journalling intention......

gosh havent arted for a couple of weeks.....busy preparing two albums for november december time n having a wee crafty get together with pals this saturday...lots of pretty paperbag albums made for etsy.....but my soul is aching for a little simple art journalling..yep need some slow flow time away from the overworked hustle bustle of daily working life ...balance and tlc 'needed' as my health is dipping again but spirits still strong! so in between some worrying about the sinister grip the most recent virus seems to have and have triggered in my sensitive wee body life is pretty sweet...and so the albums created i will post a photo later...just some finishing touches to add.

My Life is soooo Blessed....

I have had the most amazing two months.....words can not express the gratitude, positivity,balance and resilience the season turns I am reminded to 'slow down' continue to breathe deeply in order that my connection to that loving wave continues.. I am surfing ! I am soaking up and feeling so grateful for the joy and serendipitous happennings coming my way courtesy of
the universe....gratitude is over flowing x

Recurring images in my journal

I often come to two images in my journalling ....the resonance I have with these images can be explained as a sort of lovely balance of loving awakeness and regenerative awareness......its hard to explain but i find these images with eyes open and eyes closed  a yummy yet simple symbol of where my mindfulness can be at.... i difnt get very far with ideas this day ...but inspiration came later from some friends...

Day ? and art journal update

An interesting few pages which evolved and lead to some deeper insights over a few journalling is sooo good at allowing that to happen for me...yes its therapeutic but its also evolutionary....i particularly loved creating the sunflower spread...why because it took me back to my childhood rolling bits of tissue  for the inside of the sunflower...and ive been fascinated with my sunflowers growing outside..only today i ran my fingers over the drying centres releasing the pods to see the beautiful seeds underneath....theres a Rumi quote i need to find and add about love and the soul blossoming am sure i have it on pinintrest and i plan to add it to that spread. I may find myself adding more to my other spreads as i continue to focus on thoughts coming from the source of a loving connected wave and having increased awareness of when theres more particle n potential stress response creeping in with those lizard voices! thankyou Gill Edwards  x

carnival day.....

fab at kula and walking like we r on holiday alongside our annual to Leeds carnival.....

day ....enjoying the wave

I am so grateful .......not everyone has had the opportunity to have a Sheila (my wise mermaid)in there lives.She is retiring and I have thought of her soo much over the last few days she inspires me in a powerful way...she always has.... i am pondering on my plans to early retire maybe re train  a little  so I might still work in a healing field.... but differently..
very differently.I am looking at my last few art journal pages and after bathing myself in Gill Edwards work I see them in a different way....I hope to post them later and explain a little although words cant quite describe the revelations.......i am sending so much gratitude, love and light to my wise mermaid ......

day something in slow flow time

......blogging when i can now rather than daily....i pondered over how blissful today felt.Chel had to work and we met for tea and sandwiches in the vintage tea shop in 'Handpicked' it was soooo lovely china old style tea cups and saucers quirky menu on an old record ... wave of contentment and good spirit with my Chel we laughed and walked through town.. sauntered through the refreshing summer drizzle and bought groceries and drinks ..
...simply lovely x

day 18

The day came to a calm and positive close when I anchored in for time with Kula....such nurturing energy and such a privilege to be a part of that...... The day at sea was peculiar .....but a balance of meeting needs.... my boat took on water and needed some bailing out , there was news of more crew members moving on and a wave of being back to where we were a year or so ago....choosing  to let go of fear and anxiety today.....a kind of jolly sailor delerium.... settling into reading more of Beloved Gill Edwards work....Conscious Medicine ....and sweet sleep will follow ....tomorrow is windy (previously wicked weds) wednesday ...

day 16 and 17

My day 16 of the weekend was amazing just the right amount of get up n go with a scrumptious measure of nurture and joy....Today I returned to sea feeling well ....aside perhaps some expected apprehension regarding how the day might go.... after being off poorly for a couple of days last week.I pulled in as much as I could of my nets full of debris that no other crew member could touch because their nets were too full....Choppy waters and a bit of piracy were navigated and I had a window of calm sea and I pulled into a little cove of beauty and got to bathe and soak in its magic with a beautiful wise mermaid.....thankyou wise mermaid you've guided me through trecherous waters over the years ....she gave me a beautiful amethyst crystal to take with me on my travels and absorb some of the rough so as I can see the smooth...a day where I felt the love xxxxx

Blogging days 12,13 and 14

In seafaring terms I've not even made out of the 'lighthouse of lurve' today or before was a long day at sea and it kinda finished me off! I'm not sure why I fell so poorly but I did. I'm grateful for my bed rather than a hammock or collapsing in the cabin! and I would certainly have drowned if I'd set myself off to sea so I listened to my body and have slept a lot....seems it might be scurvy after all....... I haven't the energy for much but sleeping so secure in my little lighthouse I'll stay..

Day 11 ...sea faring self care

Today I managed a little bit of self care into my day...this can feel uncomfortable but it was needed and after my acupuncture I took it easy ...a little woozy n tired today but I'll have found my sea legs by tomorrow! Sleep will be sweet today. I do have a journal page I started last week on my 'off day' that I'm completing and hope to share.Daily blogging is a bit of a challenge for me and I've cheated a little by updating retrospectively!

Day 11 Yep on our bikes.....

A great few hours cycling into town down the tow path with a nice coffee at an Italian coffee shop ....then a mad dash to get next weeks shopping in before the supermaket closed at 4 p.m! pheww managed it and yes life is sweet back to sea tomorrow....

Day 10 ....Yay The Weekend

There was a rustle at the front door early hours of this morning....and it was our wee lad returning from his travels ..we are a little family again so bleary eyed and unable to sleep in we arose and had a pottering around day with a wal to the pub in the late afternoon was heavenly....

Day 9 We're on Cruise

What a lovely day aboard today.....there were some farewells to some newly fledged crew...time for lunch and socialising and I felt quite overwhelmed by the level of authenticity and genuine were overflowing to and from those involved and there was lots of laughter around the
captains table!

Thursday, 8 August 2013

day 8 could it be scurvy....

ok ....sea sick this afternoon and sooooo trying to keep pulling in the fishing nets...crew members helpful  thankyou lovelies.....needed to sleep and after struggling on in the cabin gave in to the selfcare needed and returned to my lighthouse of love and my bed....feel slightly better after a 3 hour sleep....oh its not scurvy just a symptom of a worn out (peri menapausal ) sea dog !

day 7 Sea Fearing News

Wicked n Windy Wednesday........ I've learnt to always do a 'feelings check' in on Wednesdays informed by good ole NVC it helps me make sense of what takes place ... enabling me 'not' to take what is said personally....... the bubble wall had a little wobble but still intact only 2 days to go to the weekend.
In sea fearing terms.... I was 'part' of the crew sat around the captains table were alliances and agendas are visible and my responsibility is to stand my ground only when I 'really' need to and otherwise simply listen to the healthy and lively debate. I didn't have to walk the plank today although I am suspicious that a potential dunking at sometime may be on the cards .....however I have a good Life Jacket and although might have to take on water for while ...won't drown.So navigating the 'next leg' on choppy waters and time is of the essence as usual...but made it home eventually to my little lighthouse of love..

p.s.I am reminded to take some steps for self care during the day as those intentions were there at the beginning of the week but have disappeared ...and I can feel the 'need'  x

day seafaring terms

I couldnt go into detail about the day because it is always so diverse in its experiences and I feel so privelidged to  have the encounters i have that i prefer to perceive it in seafaring terms to keep that smile on my face... hey so today I sailed in changeable winds manning my own rudder to make it through choppy and calm waters in my wee boat... but my vessel stayed afloat and no sos whistle was required... just time to listen to the other boat crew before stepping into my dinghy for the day.... ahoy there protective bubble intact...sanity preserved thankyou x

Monday, 5 August 2013

day 5 Creating a bubble......

Tomorrow I return to work and I am creating a bubble to protect myself from the stuff that is toxic to me.....this is the beginning of my journal page that really has me focusing on creating my protective intention for this next week. The universe will support me........

day 4 Get on yer bike.....

......did have intention to post yesterday...Chel n I got on our bikes n cycled miles...legs werent quite as wobbly and we had such a good laugh and a cuddly evening together...I am soooo blessed....x

Day 3 Blogalong - holidaying in my hometown

Today was a buzy ole day...we built up a faulty bicycle....were escorted by security to return it, were offered goodwill by passers by,trouble shooted with a few shop attendants, built up a new bicycle and washed and brushed up to walk around our city centre...the holiday vibe was present throughout......what fun we had meandering round......i am soooo enjoying the last days of my break.

Blogalong Day 2 - Reflections Revised

I will be joining in with Effy's blogalong I will save my rambling thoughts for my journal but I will try to share the reflections on it for my blogging. I will share the art I create as it is through this arting that I process a lot of my thoughts and feelings.......I can already feel a journal page coming on for B.O.D in relation to letting go of the fears I have about returning to work and trying to take with me some of the anxiety free, calm, level headedness I've come to recognise as my reality when I am at home, meeting up with people I love and who'm love me and sleeping ...really sleeping and focusing on self care..I've revised this post with the intention of continuing this into at least the next 2 weeks before my next week off what a fab month i have planned from August into September..........thankyou universe x

Blogalong Day One - Beautiful Day

I travelled to Whitby with mum today it was hot and full of quiet nostalgia as well as catching that sea breeze and watching familes enjoy their own experience of 'our' gothic, nearly unspoilt fishing town that has featured as a soul retreat throughout our life. The day was 'whole' and when i say that i guess i mean it left a really complete feeling soul fulfilled and my spirits lifted in a simple and wholesome way. On my way back home the sun was setting and i stopped a few times to photograph the time i was home the sky was a ripe orange....Chel had food cooking and I have got to say it all felt really perfect.....hardly an anxious feeling all day....and even if a slight appearance reared its head the love and good vibes simply washed it away.....thankyou so much for this day x

art journal 'face' spread

I am so elated to have the week feels like heaven...stress free going at my own pace....the only deadlines are my deadlines, seeing people i love and..... well living...actually living my own life woop woop......I am letting go of the fact i had to work extra hours to actually take my annual leave! and i am letting go of the anger i felt in response to actions taken by another and am grateful for my the week comes to a close i can simply breathe it all away and stay present... I started a journal spread inspired by b.o.d. n b.o.m. and my nvc reflections on chapter 7 about empathy and holding that presence for others.........i have a short poem to make part of  the i 'love' and 'appreciate' that presence that i think was described in chapter 7 and notice i do it less n less in these harried agenda ridden days ...i felt a little sad acknowledging that....but a wave of joy and relief pulsed through me as my awareness was drawn toward it again and i felt better and ive been 'observing' 'noticing' and 'reflecting'.... have some more painting n layering to do .....but here she is for starters x

Beautiful times........

I am sat with in the sunshine finishing off my journal page and starting another.....i reflected on my NVC learning this morning standing back from a request situation that perhaps became a demand ....and so had some consequences to it....but still achieved something beautiful for the parties involved, i believe! I had been absorbing the reality that sometimes it isnt possible for a utopian nvc approach to be used especially if a specific outcome is required! but k found myself acknowledging how nvc framework enables you to unpick this gently and understand that in this complex day to day life of interacting with others we cannot truly know which experiences might be informing how a request, or any communication is being percieved.

Where Love Resides

.....Had a good un pick of my thoughts about 'where love resides'...thought about 'material things' nope no real love there.....thought about people and my unbridled empathy almost too much love there! then thought about myself mmmm how warm and contented i can and do feel sometimes and how much i love that feeling simple but profound an experience it is and how grateful i feel and how alive i feel...and as i sat at peace in my garden with the sunlight pouring down into me it dawned on me yep love resides here in this moment and in me ...... and all was well x

Holding onto intention made in my journal pages

....i have filled this page with thought around intention.....beautiful thoughts and sleeping have been a feature of my i need to remind myself of that as it 'wicked wednesday' and i am up early after not as much sleep as id hoped but hey monday night i had choosing to let go of an issue im "not that happy' about but am torn between raising it for some clarification and just letting go of the confusion,suspicion and initial upset as it kind of worked out ok although did cause 2 of us some stress and a very busy day...alongside some serendipity,calmness in a little chaos and well hey not a bad day at all really..some stress is a 'given' . I could worry that it is the fear of the drama i might start by asking that is stopping me but on this occassion my mature head says it really isnt worth it unless it happens again..... and today there is always potential for i will fit in my walk around the block , be compassionate toward myself to get some head space and choose how i respond from a grounded and centred place ..thankyou x

Journalling around NVC

Going over making requests in chapter 6 again after practicing this for the last couple of weeks and so able to understand things more......with some colourful feelings and not always pleasant situations to reflect on.....I came up with a breakthrough need in relation to work and plan to journal and unpick it alongside setting myself some intention to make this happen for myself ..... as i am keen to effect a little evolution in myself.. but am fully aware I cannot change anyone else.We had a good ole laugh the other day at work boy it was soooo nice.....seeing people happy sharing a bit of mutual acceptance and girlie humour felt good thankyou lovelies

Family is a gift

Today i travel with mum to see my neice and sister.It means soooo much to mum and it has taken sometime to arrange.I love seeing them too. Over the years I have accepted that it isnt possible to have a really close relationship with my has taken a lot of time and heartache and anxious questioning of myself to try to understand this ....but its fine now i love her very much and i do believe she loves me as well. My neice is a beautiful independant soul.... she turned 21 in March and it is with this in mind that we are driving over to see them today.I have a small family and I am soo grateful for this and the time we get you both sooo much xxx

toooo tired to art it.......

feelings check in intense today....have nice picture in my head of a cloud with initial feelings in of 'fearful,afraid,alarmed and despairing'to  big raindrops with 'disaffected,suspicious, alone,sensitive,surprised,relieved,thankful in' with my 'needs' watering can collecting some of the raindrops which had the needs in for reassurance, honesty,emotional safety,understanding\contrubution and community.....thanks to a couple of lovely folks independant actions some of those needs were in part met and i can water the very dry garden of my wee soul a little so the seeds of interdependance might start to bed in... this was real hard today its always a headache of a day and id like to art it out.....journal page prepped ....

Reflections on Unmet Needs and NVC

Ive been progressing slowly on my NVC journey  a 'feelings check in' that I do at least twice a week is enabling me let go of some of those feelings (which if dwelt on can become quite debilitating coupled with the sleepless nights and long days at work...not a good recipe for the ole body n soul). The check ins have enable some real progress in exploring and identifying the unmet needs underlying those strong emotions and next on the agenda is, what I'm calling, some 'momentary thought scanning' its one of my intentions for the next week or so as I start to explore language and perceptions around 'requests' (and percieved demands)....all good stuff alongside revisiting the workbook pages around taking responsibility for my feelings is home work whilst I practice chapter 6....
A Cazzy cocktail of feelings on a working day are overwhelmed, anxious and harried vs calm,comfortable and sensitive! on a day off calm, comfortable, enthusiastic, engaged,creative,productive, and positive are in full flow even if having to deal with difficult stuff! ....its reassuring I can still feel these positive feelings...There is something i need to change about that work environment and I'm working on it...  There's been some movement in the right direction but I still feel uncomfortable about how I present myself in order to get the support I seafaring terms I don't like tooting on the emergency whistle but it is a lot better than my past puncture repairs on the ole buoyancy aid and my head can stay above water...I'm still treading water but  I can see the shoreline and sometimes just having it in sight is enough....

nvc inspired journalling

i have been focused around chapter 4 of the nvc language for life for sometime now and identifying feelings and then moving onto needs is journal fodder at its is the beginnjng of my spread inspired by this.Whilst doing this i found myself reflecting on a difference of opinion my mum n i had a long time ago....she lovingly put me up on the pedestal of being totally independant in my late teens ... i think it was her goal to send me out into the world as an 'independant woman' and i can remember then expressing my heart felt need for interdependance and realising that total independance did not make me has become balanced through the years and i have a beautiful small circle of interdependant relationships in my precious life.. where these interdependant needs are reciprocally met with love ....thankyou you lovely people xxx

Marrakech Express..........

I am soo grateful for this precious life.......I have such energy and strength at the moment (perhaps the g.p was right about increasing the thyroxine ..and gosh being away from work should have been on the prescription a long time ago..)I've just got back from a 5 day experience of Marrakech...what an interesting place a sort of 'circus of colour, energy ..and game playing and good spirit' loved it .......The cats looked happy and the people did toooo....I didn't feel any of the angst I've experienced in other African was a sort of pretend place where even in the crazy hustle bustle I felt an inner 'calm'...I felt 'balanced' 'energetic' and 'content'...I didn't get wrapped up in the crazy haggling and the things that caught my eye where the colours,the hoards of little tajine stalls, the herbs spices and smells of amber, a 'handmade' journal maker in the Soukes ..some remnants of gorgeous coloured textured leather and the bizarre traffic system!

love and gratitude to you across the Universe......

Awwwwww lovely Tam I love this song..its because of Tam and Effy that I started to have an interest in rekindling my love of expression through art journalling and my curent journey with NVC...they probably don't even know that as sooo many folks follow them on the 'intrepid interwebbs' and I am a quiet one listening to what they share,being inspired by their journey...and admiring the courage they display in being soo authentic and often vulnerable. Thankyou guyz
