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,

"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.
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 comes."
Joseph Campbell 1904-87, writer, anthropologist,
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

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
It's so simple - yet so hard for the human mind to
“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
All riches are multiplied by the simple process
sharing them where they may serve others.”

"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
Their happiness, of course, is not a shallow

Rather, their happiness is a deep sense of inner

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 Reiki.
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!
