A Last Day In Paradise

As the last full day here reality hits. We are going to miss the sunshine. But have the hot tub and kitty cats to go back to. With Ange’s new found love of American Football. We have experienced a lot.

Couldn’t do everything, but got a glimpse of life in LA. Tourism in Vegas and we got to go to The Castro in San Francisco. We don’t want to eat bacon for a while upon our return. The walking has done us good. The sun has definitely raised our vitamin D and happiness levels. Zuma Beach and Malibu has been both Mine and Ange’s favourite place. Vegas is Vegas. It’s a crazy place. Maybe we will come back to Vegas in 10 years. Who knows. Definitely Los Angeles and San Francisco. Won’t miss the cheesy feet smell each time we walk past the ‘posh shops’ at Caesar’s Palace, each time we come and go to our room. It nearly put me off Cheetos for life! 

21.10.17 (T-Minus 8 hours, Pacific time, plus tax and tips) Buffet Breakfast at Balleys. 
Flamingos at The Flamingo and Pelicans. 


A bit of a flutter. I’m no gambler, I’m a creative. I’ll stick to what I’m good at. 


Pool chillout afternoon and then a ‘last night’ family Italian Dinner at Maggiano’s (really good food!) and bed. 

Lovely time had on this adventure to San Francisco, Orange County, Los Angeles, Through the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas, Lake, Mead, The Hoover Dam on the Nevada / Arizona State Line. Great holiday and experience. Really relaxed. Vegas is a crazy place. Looking forward to a proper pot of tea and a fig roll. Get ready for the jet lag…. 

In the back of a Cab on the way back tonight.

Spring means one thing…change. Good change.

Spring is here.

Yes Snow chaos in the UK.  So glad we invested in new snow boots and coats for the ever-evolving seasons to wet, wet and wet. Gregorian Monk chants have now been replaced with Led Zeppelin, The Doors and Pink Floyd.

Discovery is an enlightening experience.  If I learn something every week. I know I’m doing well. I’ve been working my kebabs off lately finishing my Reiki certificate homework, NVQ Merit work. Creating art, designing stuff for our Earth Tree Healing Projects. Attending a great course ‘Liberating The Talents’ for personal development (Thank you NHS) all helps with my career path and ambitions.

I’ve had the lurgy for a good few weeks now. So overwork, no rest working 12 days on the trot in the hospital. Wiped Claudsvilles vagazzle out. Luckily I have some great work colleagues that when the going gets tough. Sit quietly and let me snore on my lunch break. Plus some good daily banter and music is refreshing.

As one door closes day job wise another few open. Fate handed us a break. Then said. RIGHT its really time to crack on now with Earth Tree Healing. So you are gonna get a slap round the chops and no choice but to do it now!! One giant leap of faith required. A few tears and fears. Then determination. Then our cat shat on the bathroom mat, I tripped over and we both laughed so very much.

The forces of darkness are bullying the lightworkers, testing us. Faith, belief, positive mental attitude. Knowing, seeing the goal is in reach. Life is learning and tests. As the saying goes. It’s not what happens, its how you handle it.

I’ve been experiencing so very weird dreams lately. My messages come through them. The knowing of being watched and influenced has been dealt with. Our time, minds and privacy are ours again. Some people can lead you down the wrong path. Well the path they believe is our one. But actually. It’s the one they want. In reality, it was a diversion to learn a few painful lessons. My detour is at and end. I crossed over and am now ‘walking the walk’ slowly but surely on the right road.

I’m looking forward to gigs and recording with the Idolins.  & other music projects. Now my time is freed up.

I’m actually looking forward to mowing the lawn. I find it therapeutic. Even though it’s tiny. Planting our food and lots of lovely plants is going to be fun this year. I need to be surrounded by greenery. A paradise.

Working on a new art project with old guitars (Watch this space) Creating brings me so much joy.

I collected my new spectacles today to the enjoyment of Ange pissing herself at how I say spectacles!! “OOOH I CAN SEE”

Nice to have non contact lens days in the dust. Ange is sat next to me shouting and squeaking impersonations of me now cracking herself up. (OOH I love people reading over my shoulder)

We’ve been raising the vibrations of our home, cleansing, burning Anges incense. Laughter, love, harmony.

How to avoid the January Blues

TAKE ACTION: Stop moaning, it doesn’t do any good, solve the issue and depresses the people around you too. “How many miserable people does it take to change a light bulb? Non. They are too busy moaning!!”
THINK POSITIVE: Positive out look goes a long way to help your wellbeing.
SELF PITY: There is always someone worse off than you! Count your blessings each day.
PRODUCTIVITY: Got a problem? Take the bull by the horns and ask for help, make a plan and stick to it. If you can’t do anything about it. Why worry?
If you can, do it.
WATCH: something funny, read something funny. Have s giggle. Laughter can lighten the darkest of moods.
CREATE: your own summer paradise in your home. With some creative crayoning. Left over paints, cardboard boxes.. You too can create your own beach paradise and shut the winter and dark nights out 😉
RELAX: Listen to your favourite tunes. Music can heal the soul. Try Meditation. If you are reading this. You can google info in how. The more you ‘Practice’ the easier it gets. The health and wellbeing benefits outweigh the initial ‘impatience’
BREATHE: Go outside, Get some fresh air.
TALK: Talk to friends, ask a neighbour round for a cup of tea, coffee.
FEEL: What makes you feel good? Bar illegal and vile things. Do it!
SKINT?: Did Xmas ruin you? Make a resolution. Save up all year. Or tell people you just can’t afford presents. Or even make them for people? Times are hard.
SEE: Your success, hopes happen. The Law of Attraction is an amazing thing.
EAT: Healthy. Consuming crap really does make you feel crap.
DRINK: Lots of Water. Cleanse yourself. It’s available from your taps!
STOP: MOANING!

Go on then 🙂

Enlightenment, Oneness, Reiki

When you experience a ‘happening’ your world perception changes. I’m privileged. I’m a student of ‘Reiki East and West’ (West Bridgford, Nottingham, UK). The teachings of two wonderful Reiki Masters can only respectfully compare to Yoda.
The last two years have been emotional, life changing and frankly needed. Things happen, opportunities arise, fate nudges you. I discovered a gift of healing. During drunken band rehearsals/writing sessions(I’m a musician btw). I discovered I could detect injuries/energy imbalances by feeling heat in my hands effectively ‘scanning people.’ At the time I really didn’t know how, why. I went with the flow. A Mentor and family member sat me down one day in Wales (@our Circle HQ, I’d like to say the expanding group of us practice more to the Pagan belief system. More of that to come in other blogs) gave me a lecture (a good lecture) about my ego.(bad, mad,angry, addicted, intimidating, lost, messed up completely, and negative old me.)
The Powers that be ‘PTB’ and that “Eureka” moment, made sure the ‘please go back to England and study Reiki.asap’ message got through. I was born with the gift of musical hands. Creating things and using my hands is what I do, what I am.
From that day on. I began to slowly but surely making positive changes in my life.
I had Reiki western Attunement level 1. A year later (I had lots of work on myself to practice; The demons, hurt, upset; rage that initially came to the surface and out of me truly wasn’t pleasant. But keeping it all in was toxic.)
) I had Japanese Shoden Reiki level 1 Attunement by the same Reiki Master and my teacher. I personally felt the energies and techniques suited me better. Rather than the westernised teachings.
Guess what? Life has gotten better, I’m happier, healthier. I’m now (as of April 1st 2011) hand fasted (we class ourselves as married to the most wonderful soul and saviour I could ever meet)
During the ‘oneness’ Attunement for my Okuden Degree (2nd level Reiki)
I became an energy, a light. I felt no physical body, no physical me. But I knew it was me, a ‘higher level’ me. I just ‘became’ and existed as blissfulness, togetherness. I existed in, was felt like a terracotta/orange temple. Floating in the middle of a big shiny floor in a large room. Oneness. I created this picture to manifest physically the warmth I felt and the ball of energy I became.I’ve never in my life, my dreams every experiences what I can only describe as a ‘happening’. This confirms I can achieve my path to enlightenment. Not to fear loss of the physical body.
Successful Reiki practice is about commitment and finding the time daily. I find it challenging fitting everything around working full time. Practicing Reiki and helping people is rewarding. The more I practice, the more I understand, the more relaxed I feel treating people. The stronger the Reiki energy. The more balanced I feel. It’s a wellbeing I haven’t felt before.
Successfully working through emotional injuries, is like opening a jammed window and finally letting fresh air into a stale negative room.
The more natural and organic things I consume, the better I feel. Increasing my physical exercise and sending more time with nature (We changed day jobs, moved house and currently live by a lake, river and country park. I feel more alive and balanced than ever before. The more I work with the meditations, exercises practice mindfulness and oneness, The more humble, committed, amazed. I am grateful.
