I picked up a quote by John Maynard Keynes,
... the idea of the future being different from the present is so repugnant to our conventional modes of thought and behaviour that we, most of us, offer a great resistance to acting on it in practice. JMK 1937
So, the mere idea of our future being different is 'so repugnant' to 'most of us' - ugh!
I looked up 'repugnant', half hoping it wasn't as bad as it sounds. I was disappointed. The dictionary definition of repugnant is, extremely distasteful; unacceptable; in conflict with or incompatible.
Ouch ! As an agent for change this mindset or even thought really hurts and yet I know all too well from experience how true it is.
On the whole, people don't want change. Yet speak with them and they're crying out for things to be different!!!
Yes, I confess I have been a believer in change. And I have believed that people are central to things changing. I'm letting all of that go. And you know what, it all starts to begin to feel a whole lot more pleasant.
I've believed in change, because I've seen it happen. I've witnessed people become their better selves. I've also been part of astonishing things happening when we do pull together. So why can't we keep this up? Why do some - maybe most - seem to have to revert to a lesser version of themselves? Why don't more people want to kick into touch all the stuff that holds them back in life?
Answers on a postcard please.
A final thought... we may not be able to be different. However, we can and do become better than we are.
Whilst we're resistant to being different, that resistance does have its gaps - we can and do change.

It doesn't matter if you're rich, poor, near or far - I tailor therapies to suit you, your circumstances and your life. However, it is an essential therapy that does demand a lot of letting go of the unnecessaries. If that's not for you - I fare thee well. If however, you're up for positive, life-affirming and progressive change...
The Practice - work with me 1 to 1
I'm loving this energy work. From clients struggling with marijuana withdrawal to Cervical Dystonia to nothing at and just in need of that je ne sais qua the therapies deliver all in the same week. Yes the way through transformation turbulence is on a quantum interactive level.
Let's make 2022 the year you step into being different, kicking into touch everything that holds you back.
Online or in person - you choose !
And remember, I did the hard yards and let me tell you - it is most decidedly overrated ! - give yourself a break... let me help.
Any Readers out there?
Wakey, Wakey !
I was given insight into how to become a best selling author on Amazon without selling many copies at all - by playing the system. Yes, the consumerist model sucks most in, and most are inclined to take advantage. I say most, because that's not me. If on the other hand you're one for sustainable lifelong abundance then, although you won't find it on any of the bestseller or awards lists, this one's for you. Enjoy !

Actually got around to joining the local library last week, yes, the current work requires more research. I'm loving it. I can't remember the last time I joined a library - other than the uni's back in 2008 and I can't believe I've left it so long.
And here's Wakey, Wakey ! on the library shelves - what joy ! with, I must say some rather superb, if not weighty company...
Global Reiki Circle... 13th March, 2022
Just a week away - anything could happen between now and then.
Reiki is a name give to a fundamental element in life's healing process. and those who practice it are attuned to interacting with life on a quantum level. We sense and act differently to others. In so being we can share love, light and good wishes in such a way that's relaxing, healing, allowing clearing, recovery and revitalisation.
Reiki travels wherever it is most needed. However, any form of negativity, aggression etc. acts as a barrier, halting the flow. It goes to the essence of the living. Experienced practitioners are also attuned to the, what should I call it, authenticity of recipients.
The theme for 2022 is setting our spirits free, in the spirit of,
wishes that are true bear the sweetest fruit
