  2. Pondering life


    Have you taken the time to ponder on your virtues and faults, to look at your thoughts and feelings and those of others around you also. Doing so will help you asses the decisions you have made in life and how they impact you and those you share life with. Reflecting gives you an opportunity to make profound and constructive change in your life and align your goals with values. Change usually means letting go of some things you previously identified with and keeping others, sometimes even people. The outcome and quality of your reflective period will determine the accuracy of your intuition moving forward.

  3. Keep the Body in Mind

    Do you ever feel like your brain is trying to control you? Have you ever noticed sometimes you have absolutely no control over you brain?



    Its true, we donít. The mind will rattle off chatter continuously until the day you die and some of the content is just universal human condition, some of the noise you wonít even identify with, some you pick up during your day and quite often other voices can become yours if you donít pay attention. How many time have you hear a winger talk negatively and before long you have that voice in your hear repeating the same crap over and over and taking you

    But this week I felt quite tight in the muscles and noticed it building up in the shoulders, my cycle was nearing completion and while I don’t have horrible bouts of moodiness or PMS I do tend to be more vulnerable around that time and also more susceptible to other peoples disturbances.
