Love, Medicine and Miracles - The journey begins!
Since doing meditation, and practising it on a regular basis, I have begun to develop a warmth that radiates through my hands towards others. It has been happening quite a lot recently and I’d like to explain what has happened to me and why I have opened up to more ‘supernatural’ occurrences. I am not saying I have special powers or anything extraordinary as such but here is a...

No Chocolate for Lent: 1 Week down
Arggggghhhhhhhhh!! Ok not really, I’m thankfully still alive and more to the point so is everyone around me. It’s been just over a week and I’m finally getting over those initial cravings and starting to focus on other sweet things - although not too much cause it would completely cancel out the point of this challenge. Is it right that I started getting quite bad headaches...

Today at work we were suppose to do a charity marathon where we volunteered to do a 30 minute slot either on a cross trainer, treadmill, rowing machine or bike. I even managed to round up a few other colleagues to participate :) As it was for charity I wasn’t that concerned about the ‘workout’ really. To be honest, I was more concerned with the amount of people walking round...

Day 3: No Chocolate just exercise
Mmmm, breakfast… what to have? Strawberry Slimfast (but not using it to slimfast just tastes nice and couldn’t get chocolate) Belvita breakfast biscuits - they taste almost sweet but good for your fibre intake… and a banana because well it has to be good for you doesn’t it.

Treat your girl right. Plain and simple.
I know it can be hard to please her sometimes, but it’s worth it in the end. Remember that she’s your happiness, your world. She should be the first person you talk to in the morning, and the last person you whisper “Good night” to. Unlike some other boys, she’s going to be there for you when you’re the happiest, but more importantly, when you’re at your lowest. She’ll cook for you and care...

My dream was like this: “I was watching this little girl playing with toys, a doll a barbie, and there was a bear kind of like winnie the pooh. And all the other...
Love Harmony Peace →
”Love is your doorway to enlightenment. Raising your vibration comes from opening your heart. You can open your heart more by loving yourself. Love all parts of yourself, even those thoughts and feelings you may have labeled as negative. If you feel anger or doubt, love those feelings as much as you love your feelings of joy and peace. Love your humanity as well as your divinity. Love your...

With the rise of electronic books, Kindles and iPads, it’s any wonder that more of us find we no longer have the time to sit down and read a good book. I was given a book to read not long ago, by my van-living, hippy boyfriend called ‘The Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet’ by Benjamin Hoff. Knowing that I was an avid Winnie the Pooh fan, I was excited to get sucked into the usual stories of a...

There are many art exhibitions in the West Midlands that often look similar from one gallery to another. Many of which can appear rather mundane. It is rare that we see talent amongst the day-to-day normality of city-life. This is what Rick Garland portrays in his collection of oil pastels shown at The Vaults in Birmingham. The Vaults, an underground space that includes its own private fine...
