How to ride the emotional roller coaster

The emotional roller coaster can be both exciting and scary.  The highs and lows and the bits in between when you are going round and round in circles can make you feel dazed and confused. boarding the emotional carriage You don’t need to board because you are already onboard and have been for many years.  Sometimes you wonder why you don’t just jump off and start again.  When peace prevails the view looks good.  You are making plans together, looking ahead and your partner seems to be listening to you.  You want to praise them for the things they do well.…

The House Whisperer interviews Andrea Harrn

Last year I ran two workshops using The Mood Cards at the Earthdance Summer Gathering.  What a beautiful experience it was to meet up with so many friends for a weekend of joy, love and laughter.   During the weekend I was offered the opportunity to be interviewed by Christian Kyriacou, who is an architect, psychotherapist and expert in spatial energies.  His work worldwide in personal consultation as The House Whisperer and on TV and film has helped many people understand the correlation between ‘inner home’ and the external home where you live.   So naturally I was delighted to be…

Do you keep being disappointed?

The people around us are like mirrors to our souls.  In general it is true to say that we get back what we give so its useful to look at own behaviours in relationships.  To be the best we can be.  However, there may be people in your lives who will periodically disappoint.  We feel hurt by their words and actions or in-actions.   We don’t understand why they behave in that way.  We can look for reasons but that doesn’t seem to help. Its so hard when we feel disappointed in this way.  I know there are people in my…
