Lovely Healing Manuka Honey……

I burned myself on the oven and it hurt! My friend Sue said put some honey on it. So I am sitting here with honey on my finger and the stinging has instantly stopped. Sue talks about the healing properties of honey lots – especially manuka honey. Good stuff.

You Can Heal Your Life…..

I just spent one and a half hours watching Louise Hay’s You can Heal Your Life – The Movie.  Very powerful indeed.

Here is the Trailer.

I have read the book a few times but the movie really resonated with me – I am more of a visual person! I really like Louise’s work.

Life quote…..

Leave worries aside and you will be surprised by the beauty of the sky and the colour of flowers, of the freshness of the breeze and the generosity of the sun. You will feel you are part of creation, and life will start to make sense.

The greatest wealth is to appreciate what we have and what we are.


Thank you to all of you working towards a higher level of conciousness…

To all of you people out there trying to make it better – well done you. It takes courage and determination to be ethical, honest, selfless and generally great!

-those who live in a way that is kind to the environment – or at least do what they can to incorporate eco-living into their world

-those who are genuinely good people who don’t aggravate anyone else in any way

-those who have one or many projects on to help get us to a higher vibration and higher level of consciousness

Thank you for being you because it is people like you who are making things better for all.

I wanted to write this because I have been looking on the social networking sites and just woken up to how much people are doing all over the world. There is such a wide variety of things going on – all for us. So I wanted to say thanks to those of you who are making a difference.

Quote on Relationships….

In order to live in peace, try not to depend on anyone and at the same time try to help others not to depend on you.

Help them to become independent, free and responsible for their lives.

In the same way, ensure you do not cause anyone sorrow, and do not allow others to be a source of hurt for you.

From the Brahma Kumaris – World Spiritual University

Has anyone tried Dead Sea Black Mud Shampoo?

I bought this in Tiger and I like it. I wondered if anyone else had tried it? I like the idea of using sea minerals to cleanse ourselves. My Dad used to say there were many nutrients and minerals in the sea.

Todays Juice was………….

Tomatoes, Carrots, Braeburn Apples, Asian Pears, Conference.  Pears, Kiwi’s, Celery and Broccoli and might I say it was delicious!

Do Something Altruistic For Someone Everyday……..

This is a lovely exercise I found in the book – The Gift Of Peace – Thoughts for a Peaceful World written and produced by The Brahma Kumaris:

Do Something altruistic for someone everyday.

Develop the habit of enjoying doing this, not for any reward but just for the sake of it and discover the fruit of that action.

The best gift is to give happiness and to finish sorrow.

Love is my Religion……….

By Ziggy Marley – love these lyrics

Love is my religion

Trying to be Vegan………….

My Friend and I Sue are trying to be healthier. We are both vegetarians already. Being an avid food lover, I had always thought being a vegan would mean life would be miserable but I have been proved wrong. There are an abundance of websites, blogs and social networking posts dedicated to veganism including some fabulous recipes. This is something we could really get into. Its like a new adventure!

We have also looked into raw food after being inspired by hearing about so many people who looked and felt great after the switch. I think this is a little way off for us as we need to take it one step at a time. 

We have been ensuring we have a raw juice at least 4 times a week. Today’s juice was Pear, apple, parsley, celery, cabbage and carrot. It was delicious. In fact whilst I am writing this, I think I will include posts on what the juice of the day was to share the goodness!

Beautiful Quote from the Dalai Lama…

Wake Up Everybody by John Legend….

Wake Up Everybody

Nice Song

Has anyone read the Writings of Florence Scovel Shinn?

These are four short books amalgamated into one. It is the second time I am reading this. Florence lived from 1871 to 1940’s but her words are very relevent in todays life. If you have heard of The Secret – it is kind of like that but clearer and deeper in meaning. The four books are:

There are very useful affirmations that I wrote and recited daily the first time that I read this book a few years ago. I would highly recommend this.





I have to say these guys are fabulous! My friend Sue and I are about to do an alkaline free diet. Both of us want to eat better. We are both vegetarians with a need of a little inspiration.

I found Healthy Supplies this morning and absolutely love their philosophy/raison d’etre. I have been on their website for hours now and just done a long shop. Good ethics, great prices, great thinking. Highly recommended.

The girl who silenced the world for 5 minutes……


Not sure if any of you have seen this – certainly worth watching. Children are very astute. They should be given more credit……
