Cultivating a happier & healthier You

The Amazing Power of Gratitute

If you'd like to be happier and healthier then cultivating an "attitude of gratitude" will set you off to a flying start

According to scientific research by psychologists Emmons and McCullogh the simple act of counting your blessings can increase happiness levels by 25%

The Law of Attraction

The law of attraction simply says that you attract in to your life whatever you think about.  The law of attraction is always at work in your life even if you are completely unaware of it’s existence or how it works. 

Without an understanding of how you create then it is very likely that due to scattered, unfocused or negative thinking you will end up creating things that on a conscious level you really don't want. 

The Law of Attraction starts with our thoughts but gains power through our emotions.....

What is Your Body Telling You?

Our body is constantly talking to us, giving us messages about our emotional and mental wellbeing.  It is a deep source of knowledge and a great tool for transformation.  If we listen and learn to work with it, it can guide us to health and wellbeing.  If we ignore its messages we may well suffer unnecessary illness or distress as a result. 

Many people do not hear when their body talks – they dismiss its communications as just another headache, pain, virus, stiffness or cold.  Others hear,  but do not know how to use the information for positive change.......

Book Review - "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers"

A Friend of mine gave me this book several years ago -she thought it was amazing and that I’d get a lot out of it.  I took a look at it and nothing about it grabbed me so I put it in a drawer and that’s where it sat year after year.   

Then one day I felt like I really needed something new, something to move me forward and I remembered this book—I took it out and for the next 3 days I could not put it down—I read it from cover to cover.  Everything in it spoke to me.  It felt like the perfect gift at that moment.
