This week I’m going to be very short in terms of writing, because I want you to watch a wonderful little video instead – but more of that in a moment.
Last Wednesday was St George’s Day, for those who live in England, but far from a day of parties and celebration, like St Patrick’s Day or St David’s Day, it always seems to slip by almost unnoticed. It’s not PC to be English anymore -but I managed to wear my red skirt and white jumper though 🙂
And Chris looked for damsels in distress and dragons to slay but sadly there aren’t many of those around either these days… ha ha ha!
Ho hum… back to the castle it is then…
Talking of castles… we live next door to The Mansion House, our house being the converted Coach House where the coaches were kept, as if you hadn’t guessed… ha ha ha! So technically we live in the garage… ha ha ha! But it’s a very nice garage 🙂
What I’m trying to get round to saying, but seem to be getting very distracted, is the English poet Wordsworth talked about a ‘host of golden daffodils’.
So before they all fade away, and for those of you who have never seen a ‘host’ before, here is a photo of a host of them in front of the Mansion House next door.
When I look out from my back door I look right across a sea of yellow framed by some trees. It is very pretty 🙂
Okay, so a little more about that video I mentioned.
It’s the account given by the neuro-anatomist Dr Jill Bolte Taylor of her experience of her energy body, whilst having a stroke.
She describes with great humour and wisdom the place we all search for that is simply within us. I do recommend you have a shuffty at this one, if you haven’t seen it already…
Go directly to the video here… (hmmm, does that remind you of something in a Monopoly game?… 🙂
The video is approx 18 minutes long and I think you’ll just love it 🙂
Now, we wouldn’t recommend anyone use such drastic methods to reach the kind of realisations Jill did, of course – but we would recommend using meditation to reach the same place.
As you probably already know, Chris and I have been meditating, on and off, for many years and must say that – as it can become a little tedious at times – we’ve tried virtually every meditation aid available to enhance the experience.
We’ve tried… tapes, videos and DVD’s – we’ve strapped on special light emitting goggles and head phones attached to ‘wondrous’ machines – used bio feedback gizmos, TM etc and even used the rather expensive Holosync system which we found even more tedious…more rain!
But the one we’re using now, and with great success too I might add, is ‘The Meditation Program’, which you can find using the link below:
It’s very easy to use – I sit on either my meditation stool or my comfy chair and start running Reiki through my solar plexus and heart chakras first… then, when I feel ready, click on the recording 🙂
Done… as Gordon Ramsey would say…
So I’ll see you next week, when we’ll all be feeling beautifully chilled out and laid back… ha ha ha!
