Healing Equation

From 100% pain to 100% healing in 4 weeks. But you have to do the internal work!

90% Healing I did in identifying the messages from the pain - using pendulum and energetic alignment and reframing. One hour every day, contemplating what is arising from past life trauma to cognitive dissonance to intentional work. Equally important was increasing my receptivity to receive amazingly kind care from people in my vulnerable state. Dinners and the fire lit or whatever you need, you have to let it happen and not stay determined that you are an island to yourself or don't want to be beholden or whatever blocks receptivity usually!
1% Osteopath - This could be something else but allowing yourself the hands on healing from someone you trust is crucial.
0.5% Kinesiology
2% Nutrition including what I made, choose and supplements
4% Gratitude Practice - Ten things written every day, first thing paying it forwards or looking back thankfully.
0.25% Homeopathy
2% Goddess Journey - cosmic, necessary surrender to higher force.
0.25% Kundalini surge Accepted

No.17 in Numerology, Luck and Selling a Painting to Prove It!

I'm really interested and noticing numerology at the moment. I know being in a sacred geometry house helps. But I think everyone I speak to happens to look at the clock when it says 11.11 or some such synchronistic, happily symmetrical binary numbers! I had worried about the number 17 as it is the number of windows in my green house. It seemed excessive and slightly random ...until yesterday when I had just set out to paint them!! 




I read "17 is the least random number, according to the Hackers’ Jargon File. When asked to pick a random number between 1 and 20, the majority of people will pick 17 for no apparent reason. 17 is also the minimum number of givens for any sudoku puzzle, and the number of syllables total in a haiku poem. This number is not random or an accident. Have you ever heard of the Imperial Dragon Seal? It is a token of authority held by the Emperor of China, but also has spiritual and physical powers. It is not random and if it is in your possession, it can bring everything you desire to you." 


Well, lord above, I said to myself, what will grow in this beautiful green house that is now in my possession and I've chosen the exact right amount of windows? Some good luck for starters as, when I came inside, Omar had written to say, I'd sold a painting!!! My one and only erotic (ish) one. It depicts the red tent and the white tent of tantra and the couple are in the yab yum position - in case anyone wanted to look it up or try it out, if they have a partner to hand!

This Self Healing Doesn't Require Isolation

All Medicines Use Animal Ingredients 

and Are Tested on Animals Too

All this talk about vaccines and pharmaceutical companies drives me on to explain how I heal and how I see the world. I’ll take the immediate example of my back going in to spasm from bottom to top, this day, three weeks ago. I didn’t take a painkiller, a steroid or an anti inflammatory, I set about reflecting on what experiences preceded my collapse. 

What Are Your Triggers?

1) On the actual day I had a slight hangover. It was after a great party, that totally warranted such repercussions. However, I might have let some balakans in (dark entities that know when your aura is compromised by alcohol).



2) I did an hour of block laying. I had promised myself to only move five blocks a day but this was the last stretch and I wanted to see if I had enough half-blocks and everything I needed to put the second layer on the raised bed. 
Whoops creation isn't immediately recognisable as this, now I see the two side by side!

The project was specifically to build the flower bed in the shape of a yin yang symbol – the ultimate balance between dark and light, masculine and feminine energy. As this heavy work might, in other circumstances, have been a man’s job, I might well, unconsciously, have been feeling ‘unsupported’. This is the emotion that tends to pre empt back problems! 

3) After block laying, I drove in to do a fitness class. We did some stretching and the splits and some sit-ups. Looking back, I guess my hip muscles didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, at that point. 

4) Especially, as I followed that class with salsa, which has a lot of hip action too and in heels! As they say ‘Whatever Fred Astaire did, Ginger Rogers did too, except backwards and in heels’. So that was me, giving it loads all evening, from pretty much lumber jack to limbo dancer. 

5) After class, we got a chinese takeaway and had a laugh about the night before and all was still totally fine, with my body. Nothing had tweaked or ached at all. I hugged my friends goodbye…and later thought,  one of those guys has a really bad back. Then it dawned on me that the last three people to live at Harmony Hall had all spent months on their backs, unable to move with pain. 

Mark told me once that his pain wasn’t pre empted by an injury or incident either. He had come home from abroad, fit and strong and within a week been floored. 

Empathise with caution and practice detachment

I thought through and cleared the relevant traces from Harmony Hall, in case I was identifying with them. As goodness knows, I do have an extreme tendency to empathize and thus inevitably join in. 

Just because it hurts does not mean it isn't useful 

and good for you

I learnt that another friend was in pain and he reminded me that although it was physically challenging, the opportunities for growth in every other area were great. So I tucked into the sofa and concentrated on my spirit, mind and feelings.

That’s when I started watching films and filtering in so many ‘champions in the face of adversity’ stories that I started to empathize and see myself in them as well and build my energy back up that way!

Material World/Spiritual World - Where are you living? 

I realized I had become very 3 dimensional in conversation. I was worrying about finances and friendships and family and the future. I could only explain things in psychological and physical terms, no one could grasp the intuitive and multi dimensional explanations that come more readily to me, so I had stopped talking. I was running headlong and I needed to get back to the spiritual understanding, my truth, whole truth and nothing but the truth! 


I’m not sure I would change anything I did this last 3 months but I was creating the biome, acting like a building contractor, gardener, labourer, artist, sponsor and entrepreneur, combined. I was inspired but exhausted of all resources. I had started making what you might call desperate decisions!! 



How could i not be inspired to move on when I got these beautiful drawings, from  Bio-architect Michael Rice 

Rash Employment and What You Learn

I got a job transcribing court cases from recordings. In my calculations, I had put the decimal point in the wrong place; 40 cent for every 70 words I think it was. Suffice to say, I earned €4 and €8 for the first two jobs, each at least 4 hours' work. And my consciousness suffered, as I had to listen to the tapes at Darth Vader speed, while the judge went over the hideous sex offences in excruciating detail. I was quite disturbed, didn’t want to leave the house after dark. So then I thought the antedote might be ‘fruit picking’. 

Slave Trade In Kilkenny

I enjoyed/was grateful of the work and it was €9.50 an hour but it was shocking in another way. I was packing parsnips and then packing pumpkins in an intense conveyor belt scene. It was incessant, each trailer two and a half hours with no more than a second's peace. It was definitely confirmation that the slave trade is alive and well in Ireland. Twenty or more Romanian, Armenian and other eastern European men and women, housed in the farm’s own properties, bussed to work for as many hours as required. The week I was there that was a 6.45am start and a 7.30pm finish, sometimes later. But that’s another story.

Why wouldn't you go to the doctor or A&E? 

I knew that neither of these COULD even help. The A&E will eliminate the possibility that you're dying, check nothing is broken and maybe give you something for the pain. A GP too can only examine you, prescribe relief and eventually refer you to maybe a specialist and/or physio therapist. Maybe that's why there's so many people in chronic pain; because these options take months and years to happen. And all that time your body is in spasm and you're taking pain killers is only compounding the issue. There is not much healing going on. Just because healing takes time, that time must be well spent on an internal quest, hand in hand with a self care review and plan.

Who can Help? Who can heal?

The only physical thing to do is put an ice pack (or a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel) on the area for 10 minutes every hour. This reduces inflammation and swelling and provides pain relief. A hot water bottle further up eases the spasm and stiffness and a hot water bottle to hug, reminds you life is still worth living. Do this for a week before you arrange any examinations or treatments. 

Just because I didn’t go to the doctor, didn’t mean that I didn’t accept anyone’s help! I was so vulnerable that I had to really apply myself to what I needed. The only pressing question I could deal with myself was, can I find the strength, manageable pain threshold and way to roll off this sofa to go to the bathroom some time in the next half an hour!

Heal Yourself of Accumulated Pain

I spent an hour or so each day identifying and clearing the major pains accumulated in this and past lives and in my own cognitive dissonance. Cognitive dissonance is when you find it hard to move on as you are still thinking you are living in those traumatic circumstances and you have yet to psychologically and emotionally catch up with your current circumstances, which are totally fine.    


My God-sent neighbour was very clear that comfort was the answer, namely comfort eating and a warm house. He got wood chopped, in and the fire going everyday. And faced the supermarket with an eclectic list on several occasions! 

Osteopathy 

'The Treatment of Medical Disorders through the manipulation and massage of the skeleton and musculature' 

They Know The Body like The Back of Their Hand!

Then my friend and osteopath extraordinaire, Kilkenny-based Catriona Foley, came to the rescue three times. She feared that my back was twisted at the top, various discs damaged and all my muscles strained as well. The spasm was basically the only thing holding me together. I said no, I was quite fine, nothing had really crunched or snapped. But I didn’t really have a leg to stand on because when she asked me to roll over, I couldn’t even lift my face out of the hole, let alone get a push off any of my limbs. Then, I couldn’t stop crying for a full five minutes, when she deftly manoeuvred me herself! 

Healing versus Numbing the Pain

What we did agree on is that I needed time for my body to calm down. She asked, would I take a paracetemol and I said not if I could avoid it, which of course I can. For me, there is a direct conflict between healing through consciousness and any numbing of the pain. We have to turn towards the messages that we’re being sent and listen closely, rather than turn away and try and get rid of them. I would say that pain is simply a bit of information that you have massive resistance to hearing.


One Step Forward and Two Steps Back: 

Optimists like me say, that isn't a disaster it is more of a cha cha cha

That night was particularly similar to rigour mortis setting in. My friend Geraldine had to pull me on to the sofa on a plastic bag because shuffling, wiggling or shunting were out of the question. But by the day after, I was better. I could identify exactly what part of me was hurt, as the surrounding horror had passed! And, pleasingly, I was right. It wasn’t my back, it was my perfectly strong periformus (bum muscle under the glutes but directly above the sciatic nerve). To my amusement, I could now stand upright but only if I did a ‘body wave’ up, like in latin dance, rather than a straight-on, pull yourself up straight thing! 
what a body roll is!

Kinesiology - 

The Study of The Mechanics of Body Movement  

They establish exactly what your body can and can't handle

I also saw my friend, kinesiologist extraordinaire, Kilkenny-based Carmel Costello. Along with some work with serious crystals that I’ve been able to continue with at home and some muscle testing investigations, she found that I had a deep infection left from when I had wisdom teeth extracted many moons ago. Alongside the homeopathic miracle (which is a very similar principle to vaccination but still, thankfully, in safe hands), she also found vegan versions of Mineral combinations to restore and build up my skeleton. Also, an obscure Mushroom Blend to protect my cells from free radicals and other pollution-related toxins that could compromise them. 


What is pollution?

When I say pollution-related, I refer to bad feelings, fearful thoughts, health miasms from one’s family where there is a recurring illness that has knocked many out and you can recreate it, if you’re not careful. I also refer to chemicals on your food, artificially ripened fruit, wifi and phone signals and negative people and their opinions around you. I bet you 50 cent, everyone reading this has one or two of these contenders eroding their energy. Not mine, now, I am protected on the cellular level by this supplement and on a grand level by my careful awareness of what I’m up against, on more than merely a physical level.



Another friend helped me with the cosmological understanding. Where the planets, in particular Venus and Chiron, are in their journey’s, means that a vast amount of people are experiencing back pain and the period of inactivity, deep reflection and hibernation is necessary for our evolution.  Chiron was retrograde but on the 9th December went direct again - and you might resonate with the impact this has hadVenus stripped of power and slain


Conscious Evolution and Energy Clearing 

This is the key to it all: Another friend articulated the energetic understanding: How the feeling of being unsupported had been a long time coming! Reassuring me that for people dedicated to the rise in consciousness, exploring the truth and healing with purely compassion and intention, our time is coming. Soon, we won’t have to conform anymore and try and explain everything in empirical and rational terms. Those never were the whole picture and I don’t believe that they’re really even the salient points. 


Your Physical Condition follows a long Development Period 

What ailments carve themselves out in our bodies have been present in our thoughts, emotions and environment long before. And yes, I am convinced that we  are all connected, so when I go down and surface again to fight the good fight, (or anyone else does for that matter) we are taking one for the team. What we heal for ourselves, we heal for everyone... don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it! These insights and encouragement always come from Freya Lawton, of the Stillflow Wellness Centre in Co. Clare. 

She also holds the great accolade of being the voice of Polly Higgins’ Organization, in Ireland; the lawyer and law of Ecocide; the only legislation that seeks and just might be able to protect the environment, from greedy polluters.   

Good food includes what exactly?

Then, another friend brought food twice!!! And two-days’ worth each time and her ukele and some fantastically morbid songs that made me feel pretty much 100% in comparison. 

Another friend brought a chinese takeaway, then umpteen classic dvds another day and then took me out for the day – first time out of the house in over 2 weeks!


Raw cracker ingredients before being mixed!

When I was able to stand and walk but not sweep (I was told!!!) I prepared my raw food Christmas dishes and put them in the freezer! We're talking chocolate truffles, mince pies and brandy butter, nut loaf and cranberry and orange sauce, millionaire shortbread, lemon, chocolate and buckwheat biscuits. Soup, coronation butterbean...Yes, I've nearly served up the lot already but food preparation is so cathartic, especially when it's all free of refined sugars, yeast, gluten, chemicals and obviously animal ingredients. Just harmless delicious, organic nuts and fruit and combinations fit for a master of body and mind!! Well, that's my view and I'm sticking to it for now!

What Else Needs to Heal Apart From Your body?

What I’m saying is, it’s your spirits you need to lift, that I needed to lift, the past to let go of, the limiting beliefs to challenge and the grief to pass. Yes it’s humbling but only the glimmering of real knowledge has the power to change radically and for good the whole of our mental and physical constitution.

Being a good physician in the following sense, is what I’m aiming for and work permanently on retrieving, healing and assimilating all fragments of people's souls and keeping my own intact! This paragraph explains why it has been so difficult for many people to work on this level: To be ‘It is very rarely that a person with modern culture feels inclined to submit to the guidance of another, especially in spiritual matters. But the very person submits readily enough to the direction of a doctor, for being cured of his bodily ailments. That is because these latter (bodily ailments) cannot be ignored without consequences that are patent (obvious) to everybody. The problem that results from our neglect of the ailments of the soul is of a nature that paralyses and deludes our understanding and prevents the recognitions of itself (self awareness and recognizing what is happening for your heart and soul). The gravity of the ailments of the soul are not recognized, as they do not apparently stand in the way of our worldly activities with the same directness as the other. The average cultured man is, therefore, at liberty to ask questions (endless questions and indeed scoff) without realizing any pressing necessity of submitting to the treatment of spiritual maladies at the hands of a really competent physician.' Ancient Paper on Initiation Into Spiritual Life


So, I just keep doing my work, healing myself, talking in libraries – particularly knitting groups and creative writing groups I notice – about their hearts and souls and bringing things back into good priority order!

But most importantly, I am better and I didn’t hand over my power to anyone. I just asked people that I trusted to help. I experienced community, taking responsibility and receptivity. 

Gratitude Practice

Every day, I wrote ten things down at least that I had to be grateful for. Powerful processes, all of the above, and I recommend you contact any of those people I mentioned for assistance if you yourself are in trouble. We all have so many gems of healing friendship to reflect for each other, let’s make the most of them.

On the Creating Calm Network, there are recordings of my multiple groundbreaking conversations with Energy Worker, Freya Lawton of the Stillflow Wellness Centre and a brilliant interview with Carmel Costello, Kinesiologist, too! My Radio Shows: Healing From Harmony Hall and New Directions

Our Health Is Our Wealth...Our ill health is their wealth


Hi, I think what I would do, is give the benefit of the doubt to the tried and tested vaccines. Like with Polio, I would check that the vaccine is the same as it was when first devised, not a modern version, then look at the history of side effects recorded. Then look at the need for it; the prevalence and other founding factors to polio, to establish the risk and need at this time, in this context and the particular child and then say yes or no.  

Since I've been reading a little on HPV I've learned more basic concepts about how vaccines work, how they are trialled and how the results are recorded. The principle of injecting a micro version of a serious illness to trigger a reaction in the immune system is a massive stress to the body and massive unknown quantity as to how each body will respond, short and long term, so I'm completely against routinely vaccinating babies of 2 and 6 months old unless they're really in the firing line amidst an epidemic or major return of the illness in their peers. 

To use a horse jumping analogy, Isn't the key to hold the reins, analyse the 7 points, including your approach, your take off, look at the landing and your chance at getting away intact and weigh things up. 

I'm for decision making, choice and personal responsibility. 

Don't fall for the black and white thinking that the government would have us; some anti vaccination loonies versus some responsible pro vaccine citizens and professionals. We must not let ourselves to blinded to the valid questions, arguments and considerations around our health or, by mistake,overlook the changed motivations of politicians and medical producers. There is now a very sizeable amount of money, industry, jobs, agreements tied up with it rather than well wishes. 

Our health is our wealth...Our ill health is their wealth!!
In America, pharmaceutical companies have an overt mission statement: Have every citizen on an average of four prescription drugs, from cradle to grave. And now those pharmaceutical companies are moving here to Ireland. Wooing the government with money and jobs, testing on our animals, way beyond the regulations on misery you're allowed to and now pushing their sales targets. Meanwhile, we're still thinking well if the doctor says it's a good idea, we better had better do it.

When Simon Says 'Give the HPV vaccine to boys'...the game's not funny anymore

Now this is what I call violence ...or abuse of power at least.




When people in authority pressure ordinary people into allowing the injecting of their children with vaccines with dangerous side effects, to please the pharmaceutical companies - set to profit massively from their nationwide sale. 

Meet Your Maker...or rather the HPV vaccine maker, Merck


Merck who devised the HPV vaccine were welcomed to Carlow, as an employer, while in America they were facing over 800 lawsuits against them for tragic results of this vaccine. Just think about it, it doesn't add up. 

The vaccine is supposed to protect against cervical cancer - boys do not have a cervix, it is part of the uterus! 

Think about the tests that vaccine has gone through. How many 13 year old girls have they tested it on with a view to their being sexually active and with the caveat that the protection only lasts for five years, until they're 18? None. Not one. Not recording the debilitating symptoms of many girls on the trial

How long has this stuff been on the market? 

What has it been made of? Just tap in to google 'vaccine ingredients'. Notice Mercury, the second most poisonous substance on the planet. 

Vaccines might have been a God-send back in the day when doctors took the Hippocratic Oath and prescribed to their best abilities but nowadays consultants are sponsored by pharmaceutical companies. Political parties are sponsored by them too. It is very big business. 

Tap into google too, 'What is the situation in California with vaccines'. A compulsory programme of 40 something vaccines for every citizen or they are not allowed to be employed. And the doctors are cast out if they don't insist every patient gets the full quota of jabs. Do some soul searching and consider is this happening for the good of the people's health? 

Also have a look at the side effects. 

Again, I'm not saying distrust the medical profession (like I do now) or believe every conspiracy theory (like I do now!!!) but please please please do your research and make your own decision so if the veritable s*** hits the fan and your precious kid is affected, you can handle it better. Blame is barely a second best to prevention.

Who do you empathize with and why?!



Who Was I In A Past Life?

I did a meditation two days ago and had the insight that I had been a farm animal in 3 previous lifetimes and a slave in 6. This is what has given me the empathy for animals and people in powerless situations. But we have all been around the block, known fear and all beings tremble before violence. 

The Skill of Self Mastery

On the positive side, the greatest achievement in life is to live harmlessly. It shows that you can overcome your appetites and habits and not yourself stay a slave to society or the norms of your past.

Legend and I this summer

Consider The People And Animals In The Supply Chain 


God bless all the pigs chopped into hams, all the bullocks chopped into steak and mashed into burgers and all the turkeys with their insides pulled out and breadcrumbs stuffed in. Sorry fates in anyone’s book.

Vegan Christmas Alternatives 


I for one have been busy with killer alternatives. Nut loaf with cranberry sauce, mince pies and brandy butter, chocolate truffles, millionaire shortbread, banoffi pie, tomato soup, pizza. Because I don’t heat my dishes above 50 degrees, you can taste every ingredient in all its glory. All veggie, no dairy, eggs, honey, fish. Any substance that someone else was enjoying before I came along, I try and leave it with them. I think it’s a good rule of thumb.

Explain Yourself Only To Those Who Are On Your Level


I met a lovely old man the other day and we talked for ages. When I said I was vegan, he said ‘oh no, not a violent vegan I hope?’ I said I thought vegans were the least violent as they don’t like to harm a fly and use humane mouse traps etc. He said, you know like a vegan who tries to persuade other people to go vegan! I’ve been thinking since does that make all TV violent? All internet? All shops?

Don't Let Anyone Sell you Anything

They’re all trying to get you to do something, buy something. They’d like to persuade you of something and gloss right over the details of the repercussions for yourself and others. You’re just part of a supply chain.

What I’m asking you is to NOT do something. Not do anything without thinking about it first and deciding if it’s something you feel genuinely good about doing. Be a nonconformist. Don’t give a damn what others think of you. All that matters is what you think of you.

Identifying and Clearing Residual Anger that could turn toxic otherwise and most probably has!

It was an interesting day for energy clearing yesterday. I have met with a bit of disrespect recently and found that I had no idea how to defend myself. I can never work out quickly enough what bit of anger is justified, which bit isn’t and how to express it or let it go. On further attention, I remembered that anger was not allowed in our house, growing up. No one raised their voices and the general rule of thumb was that if you haven’t got anything positive to say, don’t say anything at all. 

My bro and I at a not at all angry moment it looks like!


But, if every time you think of someone a wave of mixed emotions sweep by, stifling your good feelings and even your energy, that is not healthy and, in an important way, it was me doing it to me! I was allowing hostility and hurt to shut me down. So I identified that there were 7 categories and they emerged thus:
1)  Anger stored in my body
2)  Anger persistent in my thought
3)  Anger from when I was a child
4)  Random anger aimed at me for being female, having an English accent etc. 
5)  Righteous anger – being angry on someone else’s behalf, like about the exploitation of animals or treatment of people.
6)  Justified anger aimed at me plus me feeling bad about it for too many years!
7)  Unjustified anger aimed at me plus confusion as to how to respond.

It took ages to clear actually, a whole drive to Clonmel and back, in fact. I had thought I was going to pick up K rend coloured plaster, but the shop was shut early. Sometimes you need that time on your own in the car to deal with other stuff. Feeling very blessed today to have a clean slate, no judgement and no fear of reprisal either!

A good way to feel grateful for the person you've become

Ambient Roadside Diner for Harmony Hall?

Most of my paintings are up with these two beautiful people

in their wonderful cafe in Bray!  
The Kitchen Cafe, Dublin Road, Bray

Happening upon these photos of the exhibition opening and dinner, for PAWS, that I did there, got me thinking about a roadside diner at Harmony Hall. I thought of doing everything people fancy, in a veggie organic styles.


Like organic chips, breakfast rolls, coffee, cakes etc. or more of a chinese take away without the mysterious ingredients! Or maybe pursue my dream of promoting the merits and wonders of raw food or maybe a 'mainly from the polytunnel and new greenhouse' theme or maybe a piano bar, to fine tune visitors back to insane levels of health and resonance. Anyway, there's a building there now with serious insulation and a beautiful stove, so that's the ambience sorted. The rest will no doubt follow!

Meat, plastic and two pesticides - Ireland's Diet


Two things I don't eat - animals and sugary parasite and cancer inspiring birthday cake...although I loved the gesture and the pigs liked it a lot!

Legend smiling his broadest smile as he eats his half!

So it's hard to believe that we are having a referendum on blasphemy which will essentially make very little difference to anyone and not having a referendum on the use of animals in industry. The latter making all the difference in the world to million of animals, fish, birds and wildlife caught up in food, dairy, animal testing, research, clothing, entertainment. You name it, they're in it being ...choose whichever term you like... 'bled dry' or 'completely milked'.

Let's ask the people of Ireland what actual harm to others they want to participate in and what they want to legislate against. A little bit of objective information would go a very long way. 
What I do eat! Organic aduki beans, brilliant for the kidneys , epic rocket salad from the polytunnel and a squeeze of lemon and of course able cider vinegar and organic olive oil...which are good for everything else. Basically you can squeeze lemon on any meal and step it up a great deal on many levels!

The following was the referendum I drew up three years ago: My concern is for the treatment of animals and respect for nature. 

Even today there was an exciting call to action, to go vegan as the only way to stop climate change

Then there's the health argument: Go vegan because dairy and processed meat both cause cancer. Our local heart surgeon, Michael Conway, at St Luke's Kilkenny proposes a 'veganic' diet. Obviously, to me combining the priorities of vegan and organic: No animal proteins and no chemicals.

Something else I eat - roast usually - and also work at at the moment!  Wow, they're a cheerful colour. I say thank you to each and everyone I meet on the conveyor belt. They seem to like it and roll around for joy!

Today, they're also talking about banning one use plastics and people from 12 countries were all found with plastic in their stomachs. And don't forget every vegetable that does not say 'organic' on it, has been sprayed  countless times with pesticide - Round Up or something else. It kills the insects that we need for pollination and it accumulates in the body, disabling our enzymes and causing intolerances and then cancer.

If you're interested in religion and blasphemy, I even happened upon a great new book, looking at how the different faiths tell us to treat animals. It's pretty clear that that is going to be with a lot more respect than the dire conditions and treatment of the factories and some farms and the surplus - calves to dairy, dogs bred for testing only. All to never see daylight, but kept alive for a while anyway.

However, if you want to talk about blasphemy do...nothing else of important to ask the country about. No! Nothing at all!!

Architect Michael Rice on Reframing

Architect Michael Rice on reframing 

Be it timber, mental or emotional


Whether you have a home or not, you can make a start. Everyone who comes to Harmony Hall breathes a sigh of relief and feels a sense of excitement. They compare the big windows with their wee cottage portholes or narrow town house outlook and think they could never have this. That is not the case! 

Vesica Pices geometry at work


The perspective, energy and proportions are absolutely transferable! Michael Rice who specializes in 'creating a space of beauty and truth' can help. He designed this place and I’d recommend running any house plans past him before you build. The changes he will suggest will be subtle but make the difference between you creating a life of accord or discord. 

 Reconnection and Resonance

But also, he is well able to shift the energy of an existing place with his artwork; he can help you represent your adherence to the principles of nature, simply with images and even rebalance your relationships and make them more authentic and connected that way. 

Goodness knows, every other aspect of life, work and society is so divisive these days. I think you’d be mad not to tip away at making your inner space and home intact and a positive place to be. Working with him this week, he challenged me on my mental and emotional associations. Without realizing it, I had allowed some negative associations masquerade as mindfulness and so I was able to let them go. Such is the power of clarity and remembering that all reframing is to achieve proportion and ‘a harmonious relationship between the parts and within the whole’ as Alberti wrote.

Hertz are the number of vibrations per second.

 I didn’t know until this week what hertz were. I knew that they were a measurement for the strength of an earthquake. From space clearing and the energy work, I knew that a home should register between 4 and 7 hertz but that many houses were off the richter scale and up in the 700s. I had found that any geopathic stress over 300 hertz was quite possibly life threatening. It was also obvious that we are so hardened and used to brazening it out, in the face of electro magnetic charge from appliances, cables and wifi signals that we can endure a lot more than before. 

But at what cost? I could mention learning and developmental difficulties, anxiety and physical illness but these are the higher-end tensions where we’ve ended up. Actually, it’s the lower register I’m interested in. The whole magnitude of our subtle energy bodies has been distorted: Intuition not engaged and emotional guidance system skewed. 


That is why I encourage you to come over for some fine tuning! Instead of the enforced 440 hertz that you’ve been dealing with in music – however heart-centred and skilful the musicians might be – here we have 432 hertz. I had the piano tuned down using the twelve-tone equal temperament tuning and an even temperament seems to be what can now be guaranteed. No more drama or bad feeling, a genuinely new dawn.  One of the things the piano tuner observed was that he found the new base notes ‘non comprehendible to the human ear’. That reminded me of something I read about the 432. These tones and this numerical code to reality were not of human agency.



Who better to celebrate these new base notes and possibly beat them at their own resonant game than David Corley! Who better than Chris Brown to raise the consciousness further. I’ll have to wait and see tonight what frequency the Stephen Stanley band and Hadley McCall Thackston are vibrating at. From their recordings though, I’d say epic. 



They’re playing Waterford and Kilkenny tonight and tomorrow but the big day here is Monday!! 7.30pm Hope to see you here!
