let us all hope
that the world wide situation
calms down and gets better
In the blogosphere - of which I consider myself part of, each time one of my virtual blogging friends stops blogging, and this is outside of New Zealand that I am talking about, I seriously start to wonder if they are okay. Well. Or hopefully, just taking a break.
what ways can I be positively hopeful this year? Aside from the above - as we are all hopeful in this area.
I guess that it's the same for everyone, for the everyday things. As a yoga teacher, healer and clairvoyant, I came to realise that in many ways, although each one of us is totally unique, we are also so similar.
We all have similar needs.

So number one for me in 2021, is an improvement in health. Actually in many ways my health is vastly improved, and this is due in large part to having regular Romiromi. This is Maori healing, which I do, and I also go to a friend whenever something is not right, health wise, for this.
If ever you find a good healer who deals with physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual - lucky you. Such people are worth their weight in gold. I know two women who regularly visit an accupuncturist, and they thrive with this. A friend teaches Jun Shin Jyitsu, a Japanese modality, and wow - I love her work. Another works with crystals. There are so many different types of healing, from the mainstream to the "out there".
We can also do so much for ourselves, with self-healing. Especially regarding our health.
the four pillars, or dimensions, of health
This is from the Maori culture, and to me, it is just so practical and do-able. It has changed how I look at health overall. One of the Auckland Women's Refuges uses this for women who have suffered abuse, to restore themselves, gain dignity, and reclaim their life. (okay, those are my words, actually, but you get my drift... )
We are a composite of many parts. To just single out one part means that we are unbalanced. (yes, harsh lesson hopefully learnt from moi to moi-self)
So, if we imagine four pillars, each one holding up a corner of a roof, which all represent the house in which we live - or, oneself and one's life. Now, if one of those pillars is weak, broken, or non-existent, the foundations of our home (oneself and one's life) will be unstable, shaky, incomplete.
For example: if our physical health pillar doesn't exist, if we are always run-down, unwell, low in vitality, then this will surely affect our mental health pillar, and our family one. And not in good ways.
what are the four pillars?
- physical health
- psychological health
- family health
- spiritual health
