Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
This morning I had one of those moments. I came downstairs into the kitchen (some washing up leftover, not all tidied away and beautifully set for breakfast... just to set the scene), and had a realisation of just how awesome I am. It was before I'd cleaned and tidied the lounge for seeing clients later, before I'd been out on the bike for an hour and before I'd washed up. It just was. An appreciation of what I've achieved in my 7 years of single parenthood (albeit with probably the finest support crew a girl could ever ask for) and my 36 years of roaming the earth.
I share not through a sense of gloating, of pride in my achievements but because my realisation was ultimately how amazing we all are. We all play small, critisise ourselves, receive criticism from others and it is this we dwell on. Not the complements. It is this we take to bed at night. And this we repeat to ourselves.
And why? I've recently read a fascinating theory around the brain development and our switch from a forest inspired diet to the more meat heavy intake we have today. The overdevelopment of our left brain along with the restriction and suppression of our right brain has entirely fascinated me as a potential cause. And, excitingly (for me), the kindle I left on the train was handed in and is awaiting collection!! So I can continue my exploration of that later... But there's many reasons and theories I suppose.
How to move forwards is probably more relevant than why and it's this I love working with. With clients using homeopathy, mindfulness - and food awareness too. To increase our joy, realise our beauty and play out more in the world.
So today, just as a start, I'd love to invite you to share with yourself (or feel free to share with me if you want) 5 things that make you really really awesome.
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
