For a while I have been feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. I used to fight these periods, battling on and acting as though everything was alright. Now I relax into these shadow times, knowing they come for a reason. What I do is rest and read (need more bookshelves...possibly bigger house !!).
I return to books that I haven’t read for a while, those that have inspired me over the years. During this particular period, something that has repeatedly jumped from the pages is the mention of aura sprays. I have seen them in shops, had them used on me at a couple of places in the past, but not taken much notice of. When I get repeated hints, I know now to take notice and do something about it. Not wanting to be out in shops or travel far, at the moment, this meant doing some meditation, undertaking some research and doing one of the things I enjoy most...mixing potions!
