Dying to be me

Dying to be me by Anita Moorjani As you know by now I am big Hay House fan, and a fan of Dr Wayne Dyer. I have read many of his books and those of other authors from Hay House, including Cheryl Richardson, Debbie Ford and of course Louise Hay. So when I heard Wayne Dyer describing this book, Dying To Be Me by Anita Moorjani as a life changing book, then it got my attention. In fact, Wayne Dyer has described this book as one of the most important, fundamentally significant books of our time. So I had to read it. After all of that expectation, as if often the way when something has a lot of … [Read more...]

Lightbulb Moment

Yesterday I was feeling rather restless. I felt like I was looking for something, although I did not know what. So I went to my bed, where I have a stack of books, and looked at them all, waiting for inspiration. I was drawn to Cheryl Richardson's The Unmistakable Touch of Grace, so I went and sat in my rocking chair in front of the fire, dog at my feet, and started to read. The title is perfect. Within an hour I went from feeling restless, searching, to motivated and inspired. This is what happened. As I was reading Cheryl's experience of asking for divine guidance with regard to the subject … [Read more...]

my first commitment

OK, so we all know that I enjoy listening to podcasts of radio shows from Hay House Radio. Cheryl Richardson, Doreen Virtue, Sonia Choquette, Denise Linn and Dr Wayne Dyer being my favourites. Recently Debbie Ford has returned to Hay House Radio with her show Shadow Talk, and I have to say that I am captivated. I drive 30 minutes into town and 30 minutes home again which gives me enough time to listen to a whole show, sometimes I might get to listen to more. The show that I recently listened to, recorded some time in April I think, was discussing our 'First Commitment', which has really got me … [Read more...]

We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

I first read this book about three years ago, and I have to admit that it took me on rather an emotional journey. At times I found it harrowing, at times challenging and at times sad, but I could not put it down. For those that do not know this book, it is written from the perspective of a mother, writing/talking to her husband about their son Kevin. The book takes us through her journey, discovering her pregnancy, becoming a mother and raising her child. It is a book that really challenges the nature/nurture question as her son Kevin has done a terrible thing and she is wrestling with how this … [Read more...]

Celebrating mother’s day

How do you celebrate Mother's Day? Does your family have any traditions that are repeated year after year, or is it a day that always catches you by surprise? Whatever you do (or don't do) on Mother's Day, it is the thought that counts. With Christmas, Valentine's Day and even Halloween becoming over commercialised holidays these days, I still feel that Mother's Day is a day where it is easy to say 'thankyou' to that special 'Mother' in your life. Whether it is your mum, grandmother, or other significant woman in your life, Mother's Day, for me, is a day to let them know that they are special … [Read more...]
