Walking Lightly is Noeleen Watson’s first book of poems. On a journey of self-discovery, Noeleen realises her true potential as she finds she has a gift of putting words on paper that create something special.
Living in Glenageary, Co. Dublin, Noeleen is a mother to four children and grandmother of a little boy. It seems that Noeleen was born to be creative as she is also a graphic designer. She also enjoys taking photos while out walking and connecting with nature.
Noeleen has been inspired by her many friends, her family and people who have helped and encouraged her along the way. She now works to inspire others to realise their own potential. She is an advocate for Aontas, inspiring people to return to education. Continue reading
My name is Wendy and I’m here to tell you about how I went from being a cynical non-believer, to an accredited healer working in the NHS. I hope you enjoy my story and most of all, I hope some of you feel inspired by it.
Thirty six years ago my dearest friend Elaine lost her husband while he was carrying out his duties as a fireman. Rescuing a cat from a tree, would appear to be one of the easiest and straight forward tasks expected from a fireman, so it’s hard to imagine how it can result in him losing his life.
One of my favourite Christmas presents this year is this inspiring diary-journal that I received from my daughter who knew as soon as she seen it, that I’d love it. It’s similar to keeping a gratitude journal, but what I love most about this one, is its emphasis on the connection between the Irish ancient women and the moon.
A big hello to you all and a special thank you to Gloria for inviting me as a guest blogger. I’m bowled over by the kindness and support I’ve received from people in the Holistic field.
I’ve certainly had an adventurous life so far – it’s been anything but boring, something I appreciate, as I dislike drudgery or monotony.
The angels have always figured in my life since I was a child. I was fascinated by their otherworldliness, gentleness, kindness and sense of humour.
However, it was as an adult that things began to take off. I had the odd experience of them when I was in the Franciscans for several years. One time I awoke to see two pillars of light at the bottom of my bed. They were both golden or yellow in colour but one was thicker than the other. I instinctively knew they were my angels and said hello to them before falling back to sleep.
It is through my sheer willingness to embrace and encompass all of my spiritual gifts. This is proof of my commitment to my life’s journey as my soul directs.
It brings me great joy to be in a position to provide clients with my unique coaching style conversation that goes deeper, provides more insight and clarity and creates the space and the way for clients to move forward with greater ease.
But I am also conscious of our perception of science and spirituality. Therefore, I have invested time and energy to train in modalities, some of which are more scientific in nature, others more about healing and are spiritually inclined.
It is a significant part of my mission and purpose. That of being the tangible link that is the holy triad of Body, Mind & Spirit. I will compassionately work towards bridging that gap between science and spirituality. I will be a prodigy of the new edge and the intuitive mapping and spiritual guided approach to life.
Please welcome my guest David Kelly from Dromore in Co. Down who took part in a recent interview for We Are Holistic. Continue reading
Hi everyone. My name is Sharon Bingham and I’ve been a therapist for around 10 years. I’ve been interested in complimentary therapies for a long time now and although I do believe in orthodox medicine, I will try to find a natural remedy first.
How many times have you tried meditation? Are you getting better at it? Or do you feel like you will never get the hang of it? Are you easily distracted while meditating?
Maybe your mind constantly wanders into yesterday or tomorrow no matter how many times the voice tells you to, ‘Bring your mind gently back if you feel it wandering.’
I think most of us have concluded that meditation is a deeply relaxing exercise that promotes a healthy mind. It calms down our churning thoughts, giving our brain a chance to rest.
But meditation doesn’t come easy to everyone, especially beginners. Well, listen up all you beginners and over-active thinkers…….. I have discovered the mother of all meditations! Sound Meditation Baths. No, it has nothing to do with having a bubbly bath with soft music playing in the background – much better than that. Oh yes!
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to be perfect? To never put a foot wrong and to never say the wrong thing. Do you look at others and think that they are so perfect and they have the perfect life? Look closer and I bet you will find that they are not perfect at all and they don’t have the perfect life. Because what is that word anyway?
We all use the word ‘perfect’. We use it when we talk about the people we love. “My partner is so perfect.” “My baby is so perfect.” “My children are so perfect.” “Johnny is the perfect friend.” This is probably because we love them unconditionally and we don’t see any flaws that they may have or we simply choose to ignore them. We accept our loved ones just the way they are. In our eyes, they are indeed ‘perfect’. But what you perceive to be perfect will be quite different to what others will see.
