Good morning everyone!
I want to share some important info with you today that I hope you'll find useful.
I've been busy this week rolling out my wellness programme to teachers in schools. It's been fun, eye-opening, rewarding and full of learnings as I work with these new groups of people.
I wanted to share with you what the common denominator for everyone has been and to see if this strikes a chord with you too:
Everyone I've come into contact with has said that their stress levels reach a high when they don't feel in control. Do you experience stress in this way too?
If you do, you might find that these tips help:
Say to yourself: "I release the need to control" "All is well, everything's working out for my highest good, out of this situation only good will come and I am safe".
(The latter statement is one of my favourite from renowned author Louise Hay.)
When we need to control situations, other people and ourselves, we are coming from a position of judgment.
Judgement sets the bar very high. Judgment says "I'll only be happy when these tasks are done... when I've achieved all these goals... when that person does what I say."
By releasing the need to control, we are open to the much happier and relaxed flows of everything going on around us.
Control is a big issue and often we equate control with contentment. When we feel in control we tend to feel strong, confident and more at ease. But what if we can't control everything? What if we can't control other's reactions or the events?
The answer has to be atonement (at-one-ment) and this means to be at one with everything around us.
So, the secret is ... if we release the need in us to control and be more accepting of what is (rather than what weexpect) then the stress levels reduce, naturally.
Will you try this out? Next time you're confronted by stress, ask yourself:
1. what am I expecting in this situation? (e.g. to get all my jobs done)
2. how does this situation unfulfill me? (e.g. I can't get all my jobs done)
3. what's the reality of the situation (e.g. I don't have enough time to get everything done)
4. how does this make me feel? (e.g. lacking, sad, frustrated)
5. how would I feel without this thought? (e.g. free, relaxed)
6. how can I turn this thought around? (e.g. I'm doing the best I can, I work hard)
7. what's the reality of the situation (I can only control how I feel, no one else, I choose not to control).
As you are probably aware, I offer individual client sessions and run regular workshops for self-development, so here's what's coming up.

Here's some feedback from previous attendees:
"I've never felt so at peace and so myself. Apart from all the information you gave (loving the hand outs, I love to go home with info that I can read over in my own time) I really enjoyed the meditations, it's like a whole new world has opened up to me."
"Hi, I came to your workshop last week, I was the one sitting at the back not sure what to expect! Everything seemed to make a lot of sense and I know you were talking in general terms about the energy systems and the chakras, but I could relate to what you were saying. I'll definitely come to the next one and would recommend your workshops to everyone. And those things that were stressing me out don't seem as important any more. My eyes have been opened, thanks Ruth."

It's been a while (quite a long time!) since I updated the blog. I am so used to contacting to everyone by email. But I've had quite a few comments from those of you reading previous blog posts, so I thought it was time to update the records! Delighted to hear this has inspired some of you to start your own. It's a great way to communicate.
Every time I do demonstrations, exhibitions and workshops, I'm amazed at how many people are interested in crystals; and how many of you have a collection of your own healing gems.
There's just something magical about them, people from all walks of life, and children especially, are drawn to them.
As you know, I work with crystals for healing, so I thought I'd share a little of how you can activate their healing qualities too.
The first step is to cleanse your crystals. There are various methods for doing this, but as some can be affected by water, use this simple method. Hold in your hands, close your eyes, imagine a waterfall of pure light cleansing your crystal.
Now, get to know your crystal. Spend a few minutes holding it in your hands, just spend some time with it, like a friend :) and pay attention to your breathing. By focusing on your breathing, you'll start to let your mind go free.
Next, you can 'programme' your crystal. What do you want the crystal energy to help you with? It could be something as simple as creating a peaceful atmosphere in your home, or to help you remain calm in stressful situations.
Create a positive statement such as 'I remain calm in all situations' and imagine these words flowing into the crystal; imagine your statement forming into physical matter, becoming real and taking shape inside of the crystal; then imagine a stream of calming energy streaming from the crystal to you.
Your crystal is now programmed! Place the crystal somewhere it won't be tampered with, such as a high shelf. Or you can carry the crystal around with you.
Remember to cleanse and reprogramme your crystal every few days!
Crystals have been revered for 1000s of years as a method of natural healing and manifestation. Have fun with your crystals and you'll be tapping into this ancient wisdom too!
This Sunday, at the Natural Health Fair at the Ramada Hotel, Shaws Bridge, Belfast, I am offering crystal prescriptions for you! Just come along to my stand in the main Ball Room and I'll tell you which crystals will work best for you and your own personal energy to achieve the most in all areas of your life, such as well-being, health or abundance, stress relief or insomnia for example.
And the next workshops are....
Crystals for your home Sat 17 Nov 10.30-1.30 £25 at Namaste Yoga Centre, 265a Ormeau Rd, Belfast. £10 deposit required.
Learn more about crystals, how to choose the right ones for you, how to use crystals in your home to activate harmony and wellbeing. Using the principles of Feng Shui, and meeting your own unique house guardian you'll be able to start seeing tangible uplifting changes in your home and your life.
Reiki I training is on Sunday 18 November, 10.30-4.30, in Helen's Bay. £90. £25 deposit required. This amazing natural healing method translates as "spiritually guided universal healing energy'. You will be attuned to the powerful Reiki energies, learn about the body's energy systems of the chakras and the aura, learn how to give a Reiki treatment and you will receive Reiki on the day too. There is no dogma with Reiki, it accepts and works with all beliefs and backgrounds, and ultimately, meets you at the point you are at on your personal journey and gives you the tools for your own self healing and self development. This is the last Reiki I training of the year, so please do book as soon as possible.
Back by popular demand! The group hypno-gastric band is on Sunday 25 November 2-5pm. Taking place at Helen's Bay, take advantage of the reduced price. Pay just £95 instead of £145 for this transformational 3-hour session. £25 deposit required.

your manual and reinforcement CD; emotional and hormonal balancing; portion size control; healthy eating enhancement; motivation to exercise.
This is a really lovely session in which you will enjoy learning methods of creating calm and balance; benefit from the visualisations and hypnotherapy techniques.
After all, it's known that just 20 minutes of hypnosis is equivalent to 4 hours sleep ~ how relaxed and in balance you will feel after this session.
Put the date in your diary, and book your place now. And if you know anyone that would benefit from gaining control over their weight, rather than being a slave to the scales, then this natural session is perfect.
And if meditations and visualisations are your thing, or if you'd like to try it, there's the Chakra and Aura Healing Day on Sunday 2nd December.
