Happy May Day and this weeks news!

Before wishing you all a happy May Day I thought it would be a good idea to read a little about the days significance and the basis of the Spring Bank Holiday.  We often lose sight of why we stop and celebrate, simply seeing the holidays as a long weekend to meet up with friends and relatives, this is not a bad thing but I do think that sometimes it is good to look at how our ancestors celebrated the Earths cycle.

While searching for the answers I found that the earliest May Day celebrations appeared in pre-Christian times, with the Floralia, festival of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers.  It is a day mainly celebrated in the northern hemisphere with festivals and public holidays but many cultures also celebrate this wonderful time of spring.

Rachel Fleming’s Healing Greek Experience

It is the intention of the team at Spiritually Connecting to bring to you a variety of writings in the hope that the words inspire you in some way and today it is with great pleasure that we introduce Rachel Fleming as she writes about her experience on a yoga retreat in Greece.

 

It is coming into the fiery part of the day elementally when my body should be laying down to sleep and process all that has gone on. But it has been a fiery day and fire will often feed more fire. Then there is no space to burn out and die down.

We do need the heat though to cleanse us, warm us, help to get us “fired up”. And it was this need for heat in my bones to heal me that brings me to write again about my experience in Greece this year.

I found myself in Greece, sans family, with a dear teacher who had guided me so well in my early Yoga years. It was mid July […]

It’s February already!

I don’t know how you are feeling but to me the past month has zipped by, its been a mixed month of new promises to myself to improve my diet, move my body (walking and yoga are my thing) and to tap into my creativity.  The fact is, its been slow on all three promises but I am not going to beat myself up, I have the confidence that I will achieve what I need to achieve and that confidence is key!

Dark January is generally a difficult month, most of us start with great intentions setting ourselves challenging actions to carry out in a month that is wet, windy and dark! We all need to remember, as I mentioned last month, that to love ourselves is of utmost importance. I am personally working each day to implement just a small change and to include a little time for the promises I made to myself.

I am a very lucky lady, I have several lovely things to look forward to, […]

Happy New Year…..the year ahead

Happy New Year to you all, I wish you all a year of peace, good health and happiness.

It is with joy that I excitedly move forward into 2016, I am looking forward to a year of fun and laughter along with some hard work. My manifestation book is flowing with the things I wish to bring forth in my life, all my wishes are equally important, but I do hope I can spread joy and happiness by connecting with people through this website. The site started out as a small project to help people connect and over the past year it has evolved to something much bigger than I expected! The process has certainly taken me on a journey of discovery, I have managed to learn so many new things in the past year and I am hopeful that those skills will continue to grow.

You will no doubt remember that Jane Fishlock recorded several videos at the end of last year, with the help of myself and some great equipment, they were uploaded to You Tube […]
