I’m back!!!

I don’t know where I’ve been for the past three and a half years. To a far off land, a fuzzy head, sleepy, pain filled, body restricting place that I don’t ever wish to return to …. BUT I’m back!!!!!!!

I thought the old me was gone forever. Replaced with a tired, dried up, decrepit, pained, inflexible….fill in the blanks. I thought that was going to be my life from now on. So I feel like I’ve won the lottery.

After waking up at 4am this morning I was up and into a few more drawers before the sun came up. Both bathrooms are now sorted (isn’t it amazing what accumulates and multiplies in the bathroom drawers and cupboards?!!)

I have made a mess all over the house, which is what I do when I’m clearing things out. The theory being that I will eventually clean it all up because it will annoy me. We have guests coming for the weekend so I know it will be done by then (the contents of the linen cupboard are on the guest bed!) I need to create deadlines for myself! It’s good to know how we work. I remember my mother being horrified at the mess I had made when my kids were little and I had visitors due. Obviously not the way she worked!

I have even cleaned out the second drawer in the kitchen. I’ve no idea how long it’s been since the bottom saw the light of day. Now the drawers in the kitchen are sorted. I wonder how long before they are un-sorted 🙂

The ‘Tupperware’ drawer (which has not a skerrick of Tupperware in it) doesn’t seem to be able to stay tidy. I organise it in what I think is easy to find and co-ordinate lids with bottoms but the person I live with is only able to find things after rummaging through the drawer, moaning that he can never find lids to match so that the next time I go to the drawer (a nice deep one) I can never find anything. I should call it the ‘swear’ drawer instead of the ‘Tupperware’ one lol!!! That drawer is for later.

After the drawers were done I went down to the storeroom and threw part of my life away. Since the late 90’s I have been dispensing Australian Bush Flower Essences. I remember the first set of boxes I got. When the new ones came out I was very excited and have kept them in pristine condition. But so many of the bottles are out of date (by a few years) and when I looked from a financial perspective I realised that I wasn’t making up essences these days. In fact I can’t remember the last time I did. With ThetaHealing I don’t need to any more. there was a moment of panic when I thought about letting them go so I have sat with it for some time. But as I am in a ‘cleaning out everything that I am not currently using’ mood it was time for the essences to go. Guess what I discovered while I was purging? About 20 bottles that don’t expire until 2017! So I still have some essences.

Just to digress a little. I started my career in the healing arts at the end of the 90’s first with massage, then Reiki, Bush essences, EFT, Meditation, Bowen therapy….then moving on to holistic counselling and finally ThetaHealing. I have let them all fall away except Meditation, Bowen and ThetaHealing. I wonder where I am moving to

And the best part of my morning ….. insert drumroll!! ….. I took Rosie for a walk!!!! I knew I was ‘coming back’ yesterday and made a vow to Rosie that we would go out early for a walk.

I’ve achieved all that plus this blog and it is only 8am! Now it’s time for a shower and get ready for my first client at 10am.

I haven’t been able to walk because of the ankle that I broke 2 years ago (long story short – I had the plate and 10 screws removed a month ago and the difference in movement and pain is huge) I slipped and tore my hamstring at Easter and that has taken a long time to heal (still not 100%) The pain in my feet and legs has been a huge deterrent, my ungainly gait and the inability to walk on uneven surfaces stopped me from ‘going for a walk’. I now have exercises to do to get the balance back in my feet.

There is a book being written about my health challenges and I now feel that the fog has lifted sufficiently in my head for me to get it organised. I found an integrative GP and a wonderful naturopath who have helped me to ditch the heavy duty drugs I was taking. They ordered blood and urine tests I am now just taking blood pressure medication and heaps of supplements. There’s a bit more about it below but you’ll have to wait for the book to find out the rest!

Gratitude is an Attitude

A funny story from a long time ago …

When I first heard about gratitude, years and years ago, I thought

that if I was grateful for what I had in that moment that meant I would be stuck there and never have anything better!

And because that was my belief at the time I didn’t carry out the act of gratitude for many many years.

Definitely not a smart move

I was living in Sydney at the time and wanted desperately to move out of the rat race to somewhere quieter that would feed my soul.

Twenty years ago next month the dream I had held onto for so long came to fruition

and we moved to Kiama, the best decision we ever made!

Before that eventuated I had to sit in the situation I was in at the time and have gratitude for all that I had in my life then and there

I had let go of the belief I’d had such a tight grip on that to be grateful in the moment meant I would be stuck there

So not true!

In fact it was the reverse

Once you begin to have gratitude for what you have in your life then more things start to flow to you

The most important thing is to know what it is you wish to manifest in your life

Most people when asked what they want in their life come up blank

We all have a great long list of all the things we don’t want and nothing on the ‘do want’ list

So what happens is we are focused on the ‘don’t want’ and surprise, surprise that’s what keeps on showing up!!

The lesson here is to have gratitude for everything you have in your life now (just look around you) and focus on what you do want in your life.

Gratitude is a powerful manifestation tool.

TIP: if you have a list of what you don’t want it is easy to flip it to what you do want
