I recently came across some notes my daughter had made in a class that caught my attention.  She is working towards a degree in Psychology and the note concerned the physiological effects of smiling as shown in scientific research. I have long believed in the power of laughter to heal and have also consciously been


Moving forward to healing

One of the greatest obstacles to healing is the inability to let go and move forward, and yet it is perhaps one of the most crucial aspects of the healing process. Whatever you may be called to heal – a broken heart, loss of a loved one, a physical injury or illness, emotional abuse –


Dear body……

When was the last time you sat down and had a conversation with your body? – one that wasn’t a one-sided diatribe or “dressing down” concerning all you dislike about it, how it has let you down once again and sustained some kind of injury, or succumbed to a virus or illness that is cramping

Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of living as spirit in the physical world is letting go……whether it be physical possessions, your youth, emotional ties, out-dated beliefs, abuse, responsibility for others, loved ones as they grow, move on, pass away….it can be so very painful!

Dogs and cats can be great teachers if we care to watch and learn! They may not intellectually be aware of the benefits of stretching, but they naturally practice this art each and every day, even into their old age when they may be suffering from arthritic conditions in their back, hips or knees.

The language of the body

When words escape you….. look to your body to do the talking for you. Our bodies speak volumes about our unexpressed feelings, reactions, sensitivities and experiences, regardless of whether we are able to verbally express ourselves or not, through what is commonly known as “body language”. From how you hold your hands, to how you look
