Rod has started a course of bio-energy therapy this week, with


Rachael, a lovely Irish lady who gave us such an impressive demonstration at a Reiki meeting before  Christmas.  I encouraged him to go for it, as he is suffering so much with painful joints and all that these bring.  It’s a course of four hour-long sessions which began yesterday.  I asked that I would be able to sit in, and Rachael was delighted, saying that the extra energy I brought  to the hour would  be a valuable addition.


It was wonderful ! At the end EPSON MFP imageof the hour, I felt very relaxed myself, and Rachael  was good at explaining to Rod what the treatment was all


about and the sort of feedback she was getting.  She was very positive that Rod would feel a lot better by the time she was finished with him, so let’s hope she’s right.


It’s all about recognising the fact that the human body is made up of mostly pure energy, which some times becomes blocked in its ambition to circulate around  the body and keep it healthy.

Rachael was very soothing to watch, and I am looking forward to seeing how the complete course pans out.  This course is one of my Christmas presents to Rod, and he is very pleased with it!

DSC03650After Rachael had gone, we went off to the cat rescue centre once more to see whether we could  get another cat – a friend  for Dash, who has settled  in with us so well.   It’s not a very nice-looking building from the outside, but once again  we were impressed with the cleanliness and friendliness inside.

We found a lovely-looking little cat, who didn’t let us pick her up, but who immediately went into our cat carrier, so we decided that she had chosen us,  – and took her home.  However, as soon as we got her home, she scooted behind the settee and wouldn’t come out.  We didn’t see her for the rest of the day, although we did notice that she changed her location from one tiny dark corner to another.  Dash spat at her, which didn’t help!  I spent a lot of time on the floor  talking to her, and even putting my hands on her, but she wouldn’t budge.

IDSC03651n the afternoon, I went off to my second physio class.  Much like last week, but just a little more strenuous.  There’s a long way to go before I am convinced that it’s worth the journey.  Even the outside of the door looks off-putting.  However, the physio, Paqui, is a really lovely lady, and it is so good for me to have an hour’s class entirely in Spanish.


I was just thinking that I hadn’t got many days left of this diary blog, (as it will finish on my birthday, my having completed a whole year) when this popped into my inbox :

”  Letting Yourself Be Seen

When we allow ourselves to be witnessed by another, we cannot help but be transformed by the experience. Our friends and loved ones can easily be witnesses for us, if only we are brave enough to let them.

Your next birthday may be the perfect occasion to experience this sacred act: Invite your friends and loved ones to your special day. During the celebration, stand in front of them and thank them for being there for you. Feel their gratitude, attention, warmth, and support, while noticing the sense of safety you feel as they surround you. If you feel inspired, share your innermost thoughts about the day and your life. You may be surprised at the feelings of peace and validation that arise within you, when you feel safe enough to go deep into your soul and share yourself with those you trust. “

Hmmm.  I firmly believe that messages will arrive for us when we need to hear them.  My birthday is an important milestone, but I chose to celebrate it away on a special mini-break with my husband.  Perhaps I have been wrong to  think of excluding those people most special in my life ?  Even this Nietzsche bloke, who I have never understood, seems to be telling me something.

I’ll think about it a bit.
