Jenny Barnett

Is there something or someone you are struggling with in your life? Perhaps you feel you are getting in your own way and you are travelling in a direction which isn’t serving you but are unsure how to rechoose. Are you waking feeling optimistic about the day in front of you, with a sense of calm and anticipation? Is your thinking mind your friend or is your inner critic giving you a hard time?

Life is an up and down affair. Problems are part of our human existence. How we experience them is to do with how we manage our busy creative but sometimes unhelpful minds. Definitely when beset by difficulties our mind is not always our friend. Our mind itself can be a powerful tool for healing. Peace comes from learning to manage it and all the subconscious beliefs and memories which inform how our lives unfold moment by moment. Peace also comes from learning to be compassionate to the self who is struggling, instead of doing the double whammy of having the problem whatever it is then beating ourselves up for not doing better!

The clearest path to happiness emerges when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony” Mahatma Ghandi
