Thank you so much for a fabulous weekend - I learned stacks and let go
of tons of physical stress and tension. You're so very generous with your
time. I feel I'm thinking differently about everything now, much more
positive, and all you taught us about visualisation was really very
encouraging. I also got
some very helpful insights into the plans I have for my future. A big
thank you for everything, Heather."

"Nietzsche was the one who did the job for me. At a certain moment in his life, the idea came to him of what he called 'the love
of your fate'. Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, 'This is what I need.'
It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge. If you bring love to that moment - not
discouragement - you will find the strength is there.
Any disaster that you can survive is an improvement in your character,
your stature, and your life. What a privilege! This is when the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow.
Then, when looking back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great failures followed by wreckage were the incidents that shaped the life you have now. You'll see that this is really true. Nothing can happen to you that is not positive. Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not. The crisis throws you back, and when you are required to exhibit strength, it
Joseph Campbell 1904-87, writer, anthropologist, philosopher
A human being is a part of the whole,
called by us 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences
himself, his thoughts, and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind
of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for
us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons
nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening
our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature
in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for
such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for
inner security." Albert Einstein 1879-1955, Nobel Prize physicist
regarded as one of the most influential scientists of all time
"Happiness is not a matter
of good fortune or worldly possessions.
It's a mental attitude.
It comes from appreciating what we have,
instead of being miserable about what we don't have.
It's so simple - yet so hard for the human mind to comprehend."
“He who has not learned to share his blessings with others
has not found the true path to enduring happiness.
Happiness comes from sharing one’s self and one’s blessings.
All riches are multiplied by the simple process of
sharing them where they may serve others.”
"When you come to the edge of all the light you have known,
Richard Bach (Jonathan Livingston Seagull)
and are about to step out into darkness,
faith is knowing one of two things will happen;
There will be something to stand on, or you will be taught to fly."
"He has achieved success who has lived well,
laughed often, and loved much;
who has enjoyed the trust of pure women,
the respect of intelligent men
and the love of little children;
who has filled his niche
and accomplished his task;
who has left the world better than he found it,
whether by an improved poppy,
a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
who has never lacked appreciation
of Earth's beauty or failed to express it;
who has always looked for the best in others
and given them the best he had;
whose life was an inspiration;
whose memory a benediction."
Bessie A Stanley, 1904
"Please Understand Me"
"If I do not want what you want,
Please try not to tell me
my want is wrong.
If I believe other than you, at least pause
before you correct my view.
If my emotion is less than yours, or
more, given the same circumstances,
Try not to ask me to feel more strongly or weakly.
If I act, or fail to act, in the manner
of your design for action.
Let me be.
I do not ask you to understand me now.
That will come only when you are willing to
give up changing me into a copy of you."
"It is not by accident that the happiest people
are those who make a conscious effort to live useful lives.
Their happiness, of course, is not a shallow exhilaration
where life is one continuous intoxicating party.
Rather, their happiness is a deep sense of inner peace
that comes when they believe their lives have meaning and
that they are making a difference for good in the world."
Hi Heather, Just wanted to thank you again for the course at the weekend. It's was an amazing experience. I'm so glad I decided to go with my gut feelings on learning
I was telling my daughter all about it and she is amazed and is now counting down until she will be old enough to do
Reiki 1 herself!
