as spring meanders through May (or is it the other way around?) and we coast the minor ups and downs of life...like GCSE's and the menopause (great combo!) 

at present I am dealing with some menopausal issues (hands up of you are too!) which for me has meant adrenal challenges and lack of sleep and at times exhaustion, my body is definitely shouting at me at the moment cos I haven't been listening! Louise Hay is always right on the nail...and I realised that the symptoms weren't getting worse because the menopause was 'getting worse', but I was creating them!! I realised I had had a crazy few months trying to do too many things mental not physical and not realising I was simply overusing my MIND!

and as I learnt today, from Robert Holden and Louise Hay in an interview from the Hay House Summit
the world is not a physical place but a state of mind

So I am trying to redress my balance by doing less of everything and allowing myself real time off and relaxation. The sneaky thing about stress is you don't realise you are stresssssed till it's kind of too late! Louise has rescued me again with some great affirmations (thank you!) and I am trying to remember less is more

Do nothing and nothing is left undone...Tao Te Ching:
The Tao does nothing, but leaves nothing undone.
If powerful men could center themselves in it
the whole world would be transformed by itself,
in its natural rhythms.
When life is simple,
pretenses fall away;
our essential natures shine through.
By not wanting, there is calm,
and the world will straighten itself.
When there is silence,
one finds the anchor of the universe within oneself.
mmm there's food for thought and some calm blues...

I found this In Wilko's stationary and bought a file and notebook to remind me...isn't it terrific advice!

and I keep juicing to start my day

thanks Kris Carr for your crazy sexy book and website and utubes full of great advice:

and even the left overs go out to our hens to make them happy...

and simple things bring pleasure like this stash of eggs hidden on a high straw bale by those same happy and very clever hens!

and seedlings growing at last...

and sunny days and rainy days and green lush vistas...

 All is Well...

have a lovely week!

  1. Hi Emma! Can't remember if I've left a comment before, but I found your blog and facebook page a few weeks ago, and everything you say resonates with me :) I love your work, and your philosophy on life. (I'm also envious of your chooks, and your view of the hills...)
