Musings on my life ...

I also look back at my Spiritual progress, developing my Psychic Abilities, particularly via the Tarot.

My Reiki Healing journey and how it has helped so many others.

Aaaand navigating day to day in a world that sometimes appears to have 'gone mad' - there are a few of these that should probably be read with your tongue firmly in your cheek!

Balancing Acts

This morning, I wrote a very long piece about my own feelings of disenfranchisement. That isn’t the correct term to encompass the ‘issue’ as that refers to never having the vote or having the right removed. My issue at the moment is about feeling disempowerment. I really do not feel like the present Government or the Opposition have the interests of anyone but themselves at heart. The Government is riding roughshod over everyone in one way or another. Some of us feel like we are being battered on just about every front.

I’m struggling to maintain a positive mindset in the midst of the absolute shambles of each and every policy decision made by this ineffectual, authoritarian government. We in Britain are really really struggling. Some just with keeping their heads above water without even beginning to think about the wider political and economic implications. Others, fortunate enough to be able to keep body and soul together feel bombarded with negative, nasty decisions left, right and centre.

Its hard to keep shining a light, helping as best I can when I can, when inside I’m screaming about Xenophobia, the utter thoughtlessness of the removal of the Covid restrictions, the lack of vaccines and proper school help for our children, the terrible situation Asylum seekers are and their helpers will be in, the homelessness, poverty, exclusion, lack of support for our social and health services, Brexit and all it entails including the very real threat to peace in Northern Ireland. Oh I could go on and on. The worst thing, though, the feeling of powerlessness. There is absolutely nothing I can do to effect any sort of change. I am left with my Spiritual core and the positive energy I can keep trying to channel.

I’m exhausted trying to keep a balance, trying not to let it interrupt my sleep, trying to remain positive for my children. Y’know that’s the main thrust behind writing these pieces (I didn’t publish the longer one – needs editing!!) – my children, their present is affected by their worried, angry parents and their futures ….

…. but England won the semi final – I’m not a footie fan, sorry, it completely passed us by, but I guess its a bright light in an otherwise pretty dim arena for England and Britain at the moment.

A thirst for the spirit world

I have been kindly recommended, by my wonderful newly retired Reiki Master, to someone who ‘has a bit of a thirst for the spirit world and feel they would like to embrace it more’ … ‘what do I sugges

Covid has struck our home

My young teenager has Covid, caught at school – wiped out his entire class by the sounds of things. Lots of his peers around his age in the village are getting it too. Whilst my child struggles to d

How can Tarot help me?

Recently, I briefly got into an Insta spat about the Tarot. We had both responded to the OP (Original Poster), who had published a cute meme about sometimes knowing when to keep quiet. One of those
