Recently I was faced with a conundrum. I was ready to let go of my lovely flat in Marlow which had served me well for two years, yet where I was to move to instead was a mystery. With my daughter due back from University any minute for five weeks, I chose to park fretting about it and enjoy my time with her instead.
About a week later out of the blue a very good friend called me. Her mother had just died after a long and graceful decline and she asked me if I'd go over the next day and give her some Reiki. As I lay my hands on her shoulders, she said: “Mary would you like to come and live here until I get around to selling this house. You can finish writing your book. There’s a room for Celine too. And Willow is accustomed to sleep overs here anyway.” I was gob-smacked - and delighted. Here was a clear way forward without me having to use willpower and must to arrive at it.
I recalled the two doors at the top of my Vision Board: one door closed and the other slightly ajar. When the imagery of front doors appears on Vision Boards, it frequently represents moving house. Front doors often and also sit in the “Career/Path in Life" area of the Bagua map used in Feng Shui, which is the entry point of chi into the home and the area to work on to encourage movement generally. I had no plans to change home when I made this particular Vision Board but the deeper part had clearly known otherwise.
"Hidden Treasure." The words alongside the two doors resonated with me too. The value of the intuitive work I do with Vision Boards is to help people to reclaim their hidden treasure - the diamonds in their back yard which so often get overlooked because they're right under their noses.
Ou est Marie? Now folks to find me you cross the white ornate bridge with Marlow behind you and zig-zag up the steep gradient of Winter Hill, heavily populated by cyclists at weekends since the Olympics. Be sure to take in the wonderful view from the summit before dropping into Cookham Dean and coming to rest at my friend’s home nestled in the trees opposite Herries prep school. All that playful, creative energy coming my way surrounded by nature. It affords me the perfect environment to complete the writing of my book.
We have our own dance studio too. YES! Since we’re both dancers we’ve dedicated the large open-plan lounge, with floor to ceiling views of the garden, to somatic movement. Now anyone wanting to book in for a dance-movement session it's easy peasy. Drop me a line using the sign up below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or give me a call on 0782 7017188.
