Guided Breathing Meditation For Beginners (2 minute vlog)

Bless you dear gentle friends and welcome to my blog. I pray you are well and in good health. Today’s vlog is a two minute Guided Morning Breathing Meditation For Beginners which I recorded earlier on during the week.

As you know I’m exploring and getting used to recording and using videos as part of my blog. It’s great fun and I’m enjoying the process. I’m very much in the baby stages of video recording and setting up my YouTube channel so please bear with me as I’m finding it a very steep learning curve.

Today’s post is an introduction to test the waters of a new series of blog posts I want to write to help you set up a daily morning meditation and yoga practice as part of your desire to live a healthier lifestyle. You can also view this 2 minute guided breathing meditation here on my YouTube Channel.

I hope everything is going well for you and pray today’s post 4 Life Lessons I Learnt From My 30-Days YouTube Video Challenge reaches you in vibrant health. The sun is beaming here in London and that always cheers and lifts my heart. Today’s post is a brief reflection on how I felt I got on whilst doing my recent personal 30-Days Video Challenge, the video below gives you a bit more insight into how I felt I got on.

Why Did I Do The 30-Days YouTube Video Challenge?

My goal was to record a video every day in March 2014, I missed a couple of days but overall I am really pleased I managed to stick with the venture and record and upload a “raw and unedited” video most days.

Over the last few months I’ve received emails from several readers enquiring whether I would create yoga/meditation videos or if I could recommend some good meditation and/or yoga videos as you are keen to practice at home.

Writing Has Always Been My Preferred Mode Of Communication, yet I recognise the value of watching yoga videos and listening to audio meditations because it is something I also like to watch, listen and learn from.

So, in the spirit of “stepping up and solving your yoga and meditation challenges” and encouragement from a dear friend, I decided to look into the whole YouTube video arena and see how I can overcome my fear of Read more…?

St. Valentine’s Day Poem: Love Yourself First. What, Even Girls Like Us?

Hugs and blessings dear friends, how are you today? Thank you for visiting my blog;  I pray you are well and in good spirits. As you probably know today is St. Valentine’s Day and to join in the modern day celebrations, today’s poem, Love Yourself First. What, Even Girls like Us? is dedicated to all souls on a journey of self-love.


St. Valentine's Day, Love Yourself First

St Valentine’s Day, Love Yourself First

‘Heads Up’ About My St. Valentine’s Day Poem


I was in two minds whether to post this poem because it isn’t your usual love poem, especially on St. Valentine’s Day. However, given the history and legends surrounding Valentine’s Day and the fact love comes in all shapes and forms, I am sharing this poem in honour of the ladies whom originally inspired me to write it.

Love Yourself First. What, Even Girls Like Us? is very graphic and may offend some of you.

However, the story is real and how life rolls for some women. It is from my heart and dedicated to all the ladies I’ve met over the years who learn to love and value themselves as they survive and thrive from abuse and sexual exploitation.


How Do You Celebrate St. Valentine’s Day And Show Your Love?


Nowadays, Valentine’s Day is associated with love and romance and the amount of “love and affection” (i.e. gifts and money spent on your partner) is seen as crucial to the survival of your relationship.

However, there is a dark side to the widespread commercialisation of St. Valentine’s Day, and when I read this article about the way the environment is abused and people’s lives exploited to Read more…?

Here are some pictures from mum’s birthday party (mum doesn’t really understand what I do, and how my blog works, so when I told her you sent your love and best wishes, she asked how does that work/how do you know she was 80, shrugged her shoulders, smiled and said thank you.
