Reflections & Experiences

During these difficult times, and whilst in lockdown, I have decided to try and do something productive with my free time and I am attempting to write one piece, based on personal experience, each working day and share it here.

Subjects covered are consistent with the themes of this site:

- Understanding "The Energy Of Life"

- Working With "The Energy Of Life"

- De-Stressing

- Manifesting Success

- Empowering Practices

The articles shown below are sequenced new to old. Many of the subjects are interlinked and the articles are extensively cross referenced and linked. Please do comment and add thoughts of your own. This is a wonderful time for sharing.
