No, I haven’t finally lost it! I’m currently working on a master bedroom suite and in changing the layout of the rooms we’ve had time to look at ways of improving the space for both people using it. We started with a conventional loft space – ensuite bathroom at the rear and the bedroom the full depth of the house – with the sloping ceiling creating an area of wasted space. The clients had spoken to a fitted wardrobe company and were disappointed with the amount of space that putting cupboards into the sloping ceiling actually gave them. I went out on a limb and suggested that we investigate the plumbing and structural support to the loft to see if we could move the bathroom to the space under the eaves – after all you don’t need full head height when you’re in the bath do you? Interestingly the clients…

A cancer patient has died after a final farewell to her favourite horse outside the hospital where she was treated.
Staff at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan granted Sheila Marsh’s last wish, by arranging a visit from two of her horses on Monday afternoon.
The hospital said the 77-year-old, unable to speak properly due to illness, “gently called” her favourite horse, who then nuzzled her cheek.
Mrs Marsh, who used to work at Haydock Park Racecourse, died early on Tuesday.
The grandmother from Wigan had six horses, three dogs, three cats and other animals.
But after a farewell visit from one of her dogs last weekend, she told hospital staff of her wish to see her favourite horse Bronwen, who she had looked after for the previous 25 years.
They arranged for…

There are four questions of value in life, Don Octavio.
What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made?
What is worth living for and what is worth dying for?
The answer to each is the same. Only love.
Love is elusive prey,
Love curves and flows
Down lonely love’s path,
Can I find love?
Love’s flower-shaped bell rings:
Love calls to hearts,
Stony in love’s graveyard,
Can love find me?
Love weighs like stone,
Yet, somehow, love floats.
Copyright 2015 Brenda Davis Harsham
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.
Note: Perhaps you read and enjoyed my poem. Perhaps you thought, that’s not how I would write about love. Perhaps…

Living on the Blue Ridge of the Southern Appalachian Mountains is a blessing. Multiply that by the abundance of medicinal herbs that also live here, and what you have is a rich haven for herbalists. Having survived the advance and retreat of glaciers during the last ice age, the Appalachians, which are some of the oldest mountains in the world, became a botanical treasure. It is here that I am blessed to study, gather and prepare herbs, and practice herbal medicine.
I have been coming to these Smoky Mountains of North Carolina for as long as I can remember, and living here full time for the last sixteen years. Like me, lots of folks are finding their way to the mountains in search of a saner, healthier lifestyle, and communities in which to raise families and grow old. Unfortunately, more people also means more…

The maze of strange passages, chambers, and unlocked exits in the cellar recalls the old Egyptian representation of the underworld, which is a well-known symbol of the unconscious with its abilities. It also shows how one is “open” to other influences in one’s unconscious shadow side and how uncanny and alien elements can break in. – Carl Jung
In my book, The Vitruvian Square – A Handbook of Divination Discoveries, I included a compact discussion on pathworking and guided imagery that are possible with The Vitruvian Square matrix. This entails using your imagination and walking through each of the Places of Power (rooms, so to speak) that make up what I called The Vitruvian Palace. Today, we’re going to amp this up and I am truly excited to share with you the next generation in guided imagery that is available with The Vitruvian Square – The Vitruvian Labyrinth

Hypnosis Class: Power of the Mind “*Certification”
Are you a good listener and help others naturally with your communication skills? Hypnotherapy might be for you. The power of the mind is a beautiful part of our humanness. And it is to be enhanced and taken care of, like the rest of our bodies.
Think about how we can be bored and slumped in every day life. When you’ve been in a meeting or a classroom, supposedly listening and paying attention, your mind swirling with disinterest, self-absorption and lack of time. You’re giving yourself lists of all the things you need to do or chastising yourself about what you might like to be doing. Our human brain in studies likes to wander off and become unfocused, we can do it a major portion of our day. If we don’t stay on some kind of schedule or make plans, it’s known to make us as a species – nervous, less content and unhappy. And we know this then leads to frustration, anxiety, exhaustion and depression.
Hypnosis and Meditation have been around for centuries to help reduce mental distractions. We are to improve our psyche and learning ability. We are to look inward for awareness and ingenuity. When babies are born, we are sponges and absorb the learning offered to us. But as we grow we allow society, our environment and companions to influence our thinking process. We’re usually so busy living outside ourselves for others wants and desires, that when we do notice we haven’t gotten anywhere in years – it can be in a panic to act out in all kinds of self-destructive ways or criticize each other. Throughout the day we fantasize, analyze, and sadly complain about what we can’t achieve or have in life. How many times a day do you wander off in your thinking and someone asks you a question to answer?
Earth is calling…Wake up…Lets reframe and gain lost hours, days, months and years of life. Hypnosis is a great tool for improvement, retaining information and staying power. It can relieve doubts, phobias, trauma and drama as it enhances a deep relaxed state of altered consciousness and to access deeper parts of the mind. Decisions can be made to meet our needs. Clarity allows us to actively move the body toward solutions and achievement. Re-establishing the habits of every day can assist to refresh a cluttered mind.
Here are a few things to alleviate: quit smoking, weight-loss, sleep disorders, pain control, health issues, anger management, drug and alcohol problems, guilt, rejection, frustration, grievances, money problems, relationship issues, lack of confidence. The benefits of becoming a hypnotist can help you toward achievement, accomplishing your goals, learning and studies alignment. You will open your mind revamping limiting ideas, activating talents and removing blocks. You will be re-learning to enrich your profession or to create a dream job as a Hypnotist.
