Read this amazing account by Lieut. C. H. Lightoller, a survivor of the Titanic and how his study of Christian Science helped him to eliminate all fear ….

It is difficult to tell of the experience...
The Christian Science Journal

It is difficult to tell of the experience which follows, but the student of Christian Science will readily see in it that acceptance of the truth made the overcoming of fear possible, even as in the case of disease, and that divine Principle is to be relied upon at all times....

Dear You ....

Make peace with the mirror, and watch your reflection change ...

"Compliment Your Mirror Day" coming this 3rd July, is a reminder to show yourself a little love, and also to realise just how awesome you are .... then to keep doing it day after day.

Recently I was chatting to a friend of mine and I remember saying, “I am so busy that I don’t find time to even look at myself in the mirror.” How often have you said that?

"Oh I have so many deadlines to meet, I'm worried about making time for my family, I've got so much to do, shopping, cleaning, laundry, working ..... I never think about relaxing, taking time for myself" Does this sound like you?

Or do you make an effort to make time for yourself ... ?

"Compliment Your Mirror Day" isn't about your physical appearance. It's about the person you are inside and how you approach the world. It's purpose is to urge you to recognise your inner strengths and inner beauty, and learn to appreciate the person you are.

Try these simple steps and learn to love your inner self. Once you learn to do this, you will realise how easy it becomes to make more free time in your day, and really start to value the person you are.

Step 1: Put your mobile phone to one side and switch it to silent
Step 2: Stand in front of a mirror and;
Step 3: Look deeply into your eyes and breathe slowly, concentrating on your eyes and breath
Step 4: Say 'hello' out loud
Step 7: Now recall the happiest time in your life and ....
Step 8: Smile
Step 9: Then say 'thank you' to yourself for being the person you are
Step 10: Now one last thing. Look deeply into your eyes again and say out loud – 'I love you'
Initially this may feel embarrasing! But it does get easier the more you do it and eventually you will start to believe it.

This is just a simple exercise to practice every day ... the benefits come quicker than you think.
The secret to success with this exercise is not concentrating on your reflection, the physical you. Try to concentrate on the inner you, what is good about you. If you struggle at first, try writing a list of positive things about yourself: Do you help others? Are you kind? Are you gentle? Are you patient? Are you creative? Write these down and then apply them to yourself ie, be kind to yourself, help yourself, be gentle with yourself, and most of all ... be patient with yourself.

A friend of mine gave me this other useful tip recently:
When you are struggling to meet all the demands others put on you and you can't seem to find time for yourself:
- write down the hours in the day
- cross out those you have to work, and those you have set commitments to
- then look at the remaining hours as your free time
- prioritise everything else!

It's surprising how much this simple exercise has enabled me to use my free time more effectively, and I now have more time to do the things I want to do.

Love yourself, and make time for yourself!


With blessings, light and love to you as always

Colour is uplifting and brings beauty, interest and energy to our life. Colour is infinite in its variety of hue, tint, tone, shade, texture and intensity. We communicate messages about our personality through our choice of colour in clothes, decor, vehicles, logos, etc., and is an interesting talking point. This page (click on the banner), with regular updates, is provided by Wendy Stokes with the offer of a FREE APP from the Colour Institute which provides a personal colour test, courtesy of Mycoocoon, the Colour Specialists:

Living on Purpose

Get an angel’s perspective on living a life more purposeful
- with Emmanuel

10.00am - 12.00pm £10 or Magic Hat at the Daisy Centre, 6 Church Lane, Glastonbury

Who is Emmanuel?

Emmanuel is an angel, channelled by Jo Clarkson, whose job is to help wake up the ‘sleeping angels’ on this planet (that’s us!) and help them to remember their true mission. Emmanuel’s ‘job’ is to help us to remember and rediscover the talents and gifts we were born with so that we might help in the transformation of the planet to a heaven on earth.

Emmanuel says we are all here for a reason, that we all have our mission, and have guardian angels that walk with us, even on our dark days. He is a wonderful gentle teacher, kind, funny and informal.

What can I expect from an Emmanuel event?

Emmanuel’s messages are full of unconditional love & laughter, but also very practical and absolutely relevant to the realities that we face in our everyday lives. His beautiful messages will open your heart and help you to take the next steps on your journey of self-love.

Who should come?

Anyone and everyone! Emmanuel is always open to all - If you have ever been curious about Angels or wish to get a bigger perspective on what is happening right now in the world. If you want answers to some of the big questions about life and especially about life purpose then please do come along and join us.

Or if you’d like to see and experience Emmanuel see the webcast he did with his friend and leading American spiritual teacher and author Ram Dass –

Archana at the Daisy Centre

Chanting the 1000 names of the Divine Mother and Devotional singing.

The Sri Lalita Sahasranama, the Thousand Names of the Divine Mother (Shakti) is a compilation of 1,000 Sanskrit mantras describing the characteristics and qualities of the Divine Mother. Divinity is the essence of life, everything is arising from Divinity. When we chant Mantras to the Divine, the quality of those mantras will start arising through us and through the space that we are in. This gives this practice a healing and transformative effect. Often there is a deep sense of peace, presence and connectedness felt by the end.
