How The Law Of Attraction Has Worked In My Life.

“Everything is created twice. Once in the mind and then in reality” – Robin Sharma   Today I wanted to write about the Law of Attraction as it’s been something I’ve used consciously (and subconsciously as a child) for most of my life.  As defined by Wikipedia “the law of attraction is the belief that by focusing…

The Ritual of Bedtime

At night the energy  turns inward. The home is quiet, lights dimmed and the flannel duvet on the bed invites to restore and dream.  Before I turn the day off the ritual begins. The Ritual of Bedtime. These are some of habits I’ve adopted over the years.  They put me in a deep state of relaxation.  The…

Self Care for Mental Health

When I was 12 my parents moved me and my siblings to South America from Ontario where I was born and raised.
