My Christmas Story

Today the song: ’Streets of London’ sung by Roger Whittaker, came alive for me. When eating out in fashionable restaurants at Covent Garden in the evening, it is easy to be oblivious to the homeless people who later curl up in each doorway, looking for shelter for the night – even in London’s deep winter. And are we aware that 30% of children in England are bought up below poverty line? At Salisbury School in Queens Park, London, parents donate groceries each Tuesday for the homeless. Bags of tins of canned food and toiletries are then delivered to the Parish Church of Brondesbury. Here a church charity provides food on...

Birds of Worry and Care

That the birds of worry and care fly above your head, this you cannot change; but that they build nests in your hair, this you can prevent. (Chinese Proverb) Yes! Very true, but how can we stop worrying and reacting to everything that happens. Modern life’s message would probably be to take a chill pill; an anti-depressant. Pills are often a quick fix, needing little input from us and often disregard side effects of the drug. If we acknowledge that we have continual thoughts every day of our lives, we know that thoughts play a big part in our life. Yogis call our mind – a monkey mind – chatter,...

We learn when we are ready

We learn when we are ready As I reflect this week, I am reminded how attitudes can disharmonise our energy flows. It was a busy week, but all was going well, then I had distressing news about a close relative. It was something that I was powerless to change or help with, but deeply saddens me. Then I got a lung infection. In the art I study – ‘Jin Shin Jyutsu’ attitudes disharmonise our organ energy flows and depths. Sadness and grieving disharmonise the lung and large intestine energy flows. I obviously didn’t work through my emotions and they settled in my body. The organ sheds the tears the eyes...

‘Bad’ eating habits

Today I opened my book ‘Wellbeing from Within’ and the random page I opened to was the quote, ’Healthy eating is the key to wellbeing.’  Ouch! For me life is a constant tug of war between loving food and  healthy eating. It seems I have a better chance of eating healthily when Denis and I eat at home. When I am eating socially in cafes and restaurants I tend to eat foods that are not so healthy and usually too much! I read on more about what I had written in my book and thought to myself, Oh dear! Of course I can’t blame being with others or where I am...

Out of my Comfort Zone – but Great Learning

The last two days have been way out of my comfort zone, but there is lots of learning for me. Months ago I booked for our annual Reflexology NZ Conference to be held in Nelson 14/15/16 June. Our Waikato group have been talking about it and looking forward to spending time together. The highlight for me was a workshop with a reflexologist, about reflexology for critical care. Denis dropped me off at the airport ready for my 9am flight on Thursday – time to check in to the hotel, visit a friend, look at shops and settle in before tomorrow morning’s start. At Auckland airport thick fog delayed the flight...

My Book So Far…

I see my grandchildren growing up and my heart overflows with love. Such precious children growing up in such a contradictory world. How can I help? Each time I would see opportunities to share with them it was like they would roll their eyes and think ‘here she goes again.’ I knew exactly how they felt. When we are young life is ahead of us and we feel indestructible – it is not in our consciousness to listen to old people. It is about doing, experimenting and living life. Yet I had all this learning from over my lifetime that I really believe puts us on the right track to...

Wayne Hackett Seminar Waihi Academy March 2019

  The Wayne Hackett seminar was loved by all who attended. Wayne has a way of presenting to simplify and bring together everything in our text books  in a way to inspire us. He has a wealth of knowledge and wisdom gathered from his life and  40 years of Jin Shin Jyutsu. I loved his stories of Mary Burmeister. Combined with a great sense of humour and being a master teacher, Wayne had us spellbound during the 6 days. Wayne brings numerology and astrology to demonstrate relationships which further our understanding of the art. We learned so many practical applications and how to give the most effective treatments – and...

Dame Denise L’Estrange-Corbet’s Interview

I was reading about Dame Denise L’Estrange- Corbet in the Herald this morning. Upon reading the article I pondered how incredibly individualistic she is and how  ‘World’ is too. Dame Denise L’Estrange- Corbet has stayed true to herself and her philosophy has continued through her business and now she is being recognised for who she is. I don’t know much about the fashion industry, although I had a distant encounter with Dame Denise L’Estrange- Corbet more than 20 years ago. My daughter, Marie was studying textile design at Victoria University. She designed hand-dyed chunky, oversized woollen shrugs and approached World to buy them, which they did. I remember how supportive, kind and caring Dame...
