At an introduction to a reflexology course last Saturday, I picked up a great tip for protecting oneself from 'negative energy', 'bad vibes', whatever you want to call it. Apparently, when doing reflexology on a client, it is all too easy to absorb the negative energy being put out by that person and if that happens, it means you are less able to fulfil your function as a healer. The leader of the course suggested that, to avoid this, you should use mental visualisation of yourself being totally protected from outside influences of this sort. She suggested imagining that you are the yolk of an egg, totally protected by the white or being surrounded by a shower of protective light, or, wait for this one, stepping into a condom, drawing it up over your body and tying it in a knot over your head! Nice one!! Couldn't just be a binbag or plastic overalls could it? Well, at least it brightens the day when you step into the shower in the morning!!
The one blooming rosebush in the garden chez Jennytc now has 2 beautiful yellow flowers fully open, which shows an impressive fighting spirit, as, only a few days ago, it was involved in a death-struggle with the dreaded greenfly. The other plants are still battling well in spite of being the object of Lucy's tender ministrations. Never seen a dog with such a faultless aim.
