Reiki Sessions (In Person and Distant Healing)

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a healing therapy which works on all levels - the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of the body.  This is why it is often referred to as holistic, or as I prefer to say wholistic, as it works on the whole body. 

Reiki can help enhance every aspect of a person's life.   It assists in removes blockages from our energy bodies.   Some blocks are present for years and cause us problems on an ongoing basis and some are newer hurts or injuries.

Treat your feet at the Sole Saloon at Greenes

Greenes shoes at the Eyre Square Shopping Centre are continuing their run of recent successful events by inviting customers to their Sole Saloon on Saturday June 24th from 11am - 3pm. Orla McFadden of Greenes says “”We are always customer focused and love the opportunity to give back to all of our customers. We have decided to use this event not just as a fabulous pampering day but also as a way to share advice and tips on how to look after your feet and find appropriate footwear to take you through every season”.

As we move through the summer season, our feet can take a bit of a battering. Wearing sandals daily, walking more in good weather and generally letting our feet out to breathe are all wonderful things to do but the exposure means we need to give our feet a little bit more TLC. So aside from wearing great shoes, what can we do to take care of our feet? Greenes have provided qualified guest therapists including Podiatrist Patricia Ruane, Soul care practitioner Dolores Andrew Gavin from the Irish Health Hour, reflexologist Aine Walsh  and Henna Artist Chandra Bhuva who will be in store at the Sole Saloon providing complimentary mini foot treatments and advice on how to take of your feet all year round.

On the day, Greenes are also giving customers the chance to win a pair of shoes in their monthly draw.  All customers need to do to enter is sign up to the Greenes Newsletter with their email address. There will also be lots of other surprise giveaways and goodies on offer. Orla is looking forward to welcoming customers on the day “If you are looking for something different to do on the 24th, pop in to us anytime between 11am and 3pm and enjoy a foot treatment, a complimentary free tea or coffee and browse through all our new arrivals. We will be delighted to answer any questions you may have”.

With seven stores Nationwide and home to both G2 and Gosh in Galway city, the company, established since 1939 has continued to steadily grow in popularity over the years.

Galway Meet Up of Tweeting Goddess' Womens Inspire Network

Hello Hello Hello Women Inspire Ladies 

The popular FREE Galway Meet Up is back, same time, same place just a different date!

This month we have more wonderful speakers to give their knowledge to us on all things business, networking and being authentic!

First up we have Fidelman Greene speaking on 

"The power of faith in your business"

Background: 

Fidelma Greene is a Conscious Business Mentor who empowers highly conscious women who are feeling stuck, not knowing how to affect greater change in their life and business.

Her clients have a desire to make a difference and are highly intuitive women. She acts as their midwife to help them birth their ideas to create more freedom, abundance and possibilities in their business and life as a Conscious Entrepreneur. This enables them to make a difference on purpose and build a sustainable business doing what they love.

Fidelma holds a sacred container for her clients to heal their fears and mindset blocks that are holding them back going to the next level. She helps women to:

 value their spiritual gifts and talents so they can offer their work in a way that serves them and those they are here to help in a bigger way

 let go of their old money story

 take a leap into the higher version of themselves in their business and life.

AND next we have Evelyn Pepperrell speaking on "Social media and Twitter visability" 

Evelyn Pepperrell, Social Media Communication Strategist, specialises in providing clarity and manage social media accounts for time short solopreneurs. We specialise in tailoring packages around SMEs product/service requirements being mindful of branding, seo and business message. We are a growing business and continue to build profile in event & social media visability and connection for time short solopreneurs.

AND

Dolores Andrew-Gavin speaking on "Finding Your Authentic Story" 

Dolores is a health and wellness blogger, founder of IrishHealthHour, Energy Therapist, Author and Mum.

She helps people find their mojo when it comes to finding their own authentic story and writing about it, either for publication or just for clarity!   We each have our own unique strengths and when we learn to hone in on these and come from this place when we are writing, then we will be able to speak authentically to the world.   We don't want to write someone else's story, we want to write our own.   

However, we can hold ourselves back, consciously or unconsciously.    

Dolores works a lot with helping people delve into the emotional aspects of where they are stuck.   Our emotions each have a lesson for us and when we learn what they are trying to tell us then, we can take the juicy part of that and work with it, rather than against it.   Fear is not a bad emotion or one to be frightened of and, believe it or not jealousy is a fantastic emotion to show us our authentic path.    It’s fun to delve into our emotional realm because we are diving into our own internal world where all our power is!  By doing this we break through our own inner glass ceilings and begin to realise .. the world is our oyster!    

We will do some grounding exercises and learn a way to create a boundary to protect ourselves!!!

Women’s Health; Connecting & Flowing with The Feminine Through Our Chakras

to Apr 10

Women’s Health; Connecting & Flowing with The Feminine Through Our Chakras

What does it mean to connect and flow with the feminine?

When we speak about the “feminine” we are speaking about an energy within.   It is the yin in the yin and yang.   It is the soft flowing of emotions, it is the core of our essence of creativity and birthing whether that be a new project or a baby (!), it is the right brain activities, the sensual, the listening to and following our gut instinct.

This feminine energy does well when it is in balance with our masculine energy, the left brain, the focused attention, the strategist, the yang.

Margaret Lee mother to three grown up sons my husband Noelowns Connemara Organic Seaweed Company.
I work as a swimming instructor for both children and adults, a job which i really enjoy. Growing up I was a keen swimmer and swam competitively for a good few years in my home country of Scotland. I've always had a massive interest in health and wellbeing and go to the gym and swim regularly. I love eating as clean as possible and since starting up our own Seaweed Company I have gained a whole new experience with food. I love cooking healthy meals and use Seaweed every day in some shape or form.
I have also started making my own Skincare with seaweed and I am enjoying this project immensely. I make scrubs and butters containing Seaweed and Seaweed infused oil with Callendula, these products are natural and only contain 4 or 5 ingredients.I truly believe the way we eat has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing the same applies to what we choose to put on our skin.
My aim is to show people how to incorporate Seaweed into their diet in a way that is both simple and using ingredients we would all have in our pantry.

Margaret will make a roast red pepper and lentil with dilisk and komu stock, Omega 3 bread with diliskDFGF PALEO

Carrigeen Moss Punch for colds.

The Positive Power of Emotions

Our first Guest Speaker of 2017 in Galway is Dolores Andrew-Gavin.

Emotions are blamed for so many, many issues in our lives. We may call someone an angry person or sometimes we may feel ourselves consumed by hate or feel wounded to the extent that we cannot allow happiness in to our heart. Our emotions then, ARE in fact controlling our lives.

It does not have to be like that though. Emotions are energy E ...energy and M ...motion.

Each emotion is a piece of energy that we can work with and allow flow out if we do not want to hold onto it. We respect what it is telling us first though as the wisdom is there if we choose to look!
What is our rage telling us? Maybe we feel we are a victim to another. We can learn ways to step out of that victim story and step more fully into our power, acknowledging all the while that we are changing our own perceptions and learning more empowering ways to do this.

What is our sadness telling us? It is time to let go or something or someone?

When we look at our emotions though a different lens we see a different story, lets make our lens one that best suits ourselves.

Dolores Andrew-Gavin is an Author and Founder of the Global Emotional Health Summit. She works with people though any emotional issues they may have by using various techiques including soul care coaching, EFT, Reiki, balancing the chakras and aromatherapy blends. She is also the owner of IrishHealthHour a national health and wellness network which brings together a community of people to share and network in a safe environment.
Her children's books and associated web site www.themythicfairy.com help children navigate their emotional realm through story telling and giving children tools to empower them make choices which suit them best.
You can contact her at doloresagavin@gmail.com. For more information on subscribing to the free Global Emotional Health Summit visit the web site www.globalemotionalhealthsummit.com

7 Week On Line Journey Through The Chakras

You can sign up to get the Introduction to the Chakras lesson free herehttp://chakrademystified.weebly.com/ and decide then whether or not it is for you.

This is an interactive on line course. 

Each week I will post a lesson in the secret Facebook group in relation to the particular chakra we are working on.  Each day I will post in relation to a different aspect.  

The first day will be a general introduction to the chakra.   On the following days I will post infomation on the essential oil for the particular chakra we are working on and how to work with it.  

Each week Iwill post a meditation to help you go deeper with each chakra.

There will be a recorded call every Wednesday where we learn more about the chakras and a call to answer your questions each week. 

There will also be a thread each week for sharing your thoughts on each chakra and for answering any questions that come up for you.

If you have your own essential oils you can use them or alternatively if you wish to get oils at wholesale price I can arrange that.   Any queries contact doloresagavin@gmail.com.

BONUS MATERIAL

*  Meal plans for eating foods that support each of the chakras and associated organs.
*  I have matched a Goddess energy to each chakra.  It is another tool we can use to embrace our personal power.  For example I have Quan Yin, the Goddess of compassion matched with our heart chakra.  Invoking the goddess energies helps us to step into the energy of that particular Goddess.

Some common questions about the chakras.
Do I need to start at the root chakra?

No it is not necessary but I would always advise on commencing the journey at the root.   If any issue comes up for you in another chakra and you want to tune in to it by all means do.   The root chakra is our foundation upon which all the other chakras are stacked.  

Why use essential oils?  What if I do not like the smell of them? 
 Not everyone likes every odour, smell is a personal choice.   Smell is linked to the root chakra as it is linked with survival.  We often hear the words “I could smell the fear”.   This is because smell travels through our olfactory system (of which our nose is a part) and enters our brain via this system.   One of the areas where the molecules from the oils enter is the limbic system.  This system is made up of structures such as the amygdale and the hippocampus. 

The amygdale is thought to play a major role in processing our emotions, the formation of emotional memory and emotional response.  We know that some odours arise emotions; for example we are told that inhaled Lavender has a calming effect.  
 
The hippocampus is associated with our learning ability and our memories.  Smell can trigger memories from the past, which can in turn bring into our awareness good or bad feelings.   We have the ability to assist this area of our brain with oils that support and maintain our central nervous system.  
 
The essential oils have their own vibration.  They are made up of molecules each with its own specific function.   Some of the molecules or components are antibacterial, some are anti fungal, and some have effects on different systems of our body e.g. central nervous system, endocrine system and digestive system.  This is their chemical make up and when we use them we are transferring their messages to our system.   For example when we take an oil like Lavender for support for our central nervous system the messenger molecules send signals to our brain which then cause the effect on our central nervous system.  
 
Will we ever have all our chakras balanced at the same time?
 
Life is a continuous journey.   The more we grow the more able we are to weave better stories for ourselves and manage situations in ways that we could never have imagined possible.   
There will be times when we feel we have done lots of work but keep going back to an old story and may wonder if we will ever shift this old story.    
However our stories, while they may appear similar can have a very different destination for us.  
Sometimes going to our third eye chakra, the centre, which governs illusion and perception and really focusing on our story, may bring forward some insights for us.  Maybe we need to look at a situation, which appears to be like an old story from a different point of view.

Testimonials from Previous 7 Week On Line Chakra Course
I have enjoyed this wonderful journey through the chakras. Dolores Andrew-Gavin's research and knowledge has been put together in a concise simple manner full of wisdom. Sweet, simple and powerful. Deborah P, USA

Lovely course, brilliant tutor, enjoyed it tremendously and feel fantastic for it!(Even brought aspects of it into my yoga classes!!) Thank you :) Ronah C. Ireland

"I loved the 7 week chakra course because we had an entire week per chakra! There was no rush and that gave plenty of time to take in the information. Dolores shared practical knowledge of the chakras that made it easy to digest and also allowed for powerful transformative experiences each week. The course gives you an education about your energy body that is so useful, and having the essential oils as a supportive tool was great." Jenn P USA

Embracing the Goddess Within

Embracing the Goddess Within

We look at the different Goddess enegies that are within all of us. Ultimately they each represent power, that is our own personal power. This power can be power in matters of the heart, in our work or in a certain part of our life.

When we become aware of which is more dominant in our lives we can then understand what we can do to embrace another, if that is what we feel we need in a certain situation.

For example someone who has a Hestia archetype is someone who is very much a hearth maker, possibly a wife, a mother who cherishes this role and is happy to stay in the background and do this work as it is what makes her alive.   If she were to want to step more into her power in the area around work and create a career outside of the home, in which she wanted to excel she may need to embrace a different type of energy, for example the strategy loving energy of Athena.   

It does not always come easy for someone who does not have a certain type of energy to just "step into another", in fact it might feel quite alien to them and they may give up and feel it is too much of a pull for them.

However there are ways we can embrace other types of energies and at different times of our lives our needs change as do our desires for what we want.  

For example:

Perhaps we may want to embrace our own internal wisdom.

Perhaps we want to embrace the energy of love, it may well be we are blocking ourselves from either giving or receiving love. We look at ways to invoke Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love into our lives.

Perhaps we may wish to have children but do not feel very maternal or worry about whether or not we will be able to conceive. We may wish to bring the energy of motherhood closer to us.

These energies are within us all and we look at ways of embracing the ones we want more or perhaps taming the one that we wish to grow from.

We will use silent intention, aromas, and creative visioning to bring these energies closer to us.

Cost €35 includes essential oil Goddess blend.

The Joy Project

Hannah Lilly – Transformational Speaker, Non Competitive Running Coach, Co-Author 20 Beautiful Women Volume 3, Body Confidence Enthusiast, Blogger & Joy Hunter

Hannah Lilly’s uplifting story is not only one of survival & of personal transformation but one that inspires all who hear it to find more joy in their own lives and to become the best version of themselves.

In 2014 a perfect storm of events meant for this Mum of 2, Running Coach & Motivational Speaker in her own words “my seemingly perfect life began to collapse around me.” Months of anxiety followed, her self-confidence was non-existent and she began to contemplate ending her own life.

It was these thoughts that made her face up to the fact that she needed to make a decision- if she was going to continue living what life did she want to live? And this led to the creation of a mindset experiment she followed for six months including daily rules such as gratitude, kindness to others, kindness to herself, even listening to a favourite song was a rule. Knowing that when you feel bad it’s not as simple as “just snapping out of it” the rules were feel good triggers and her goal – simply to try and feel better.

It did much more than that, it transformed her life forever.

During the experiment Hannah left behind a life of constant dieting and negative body image, the relationship with her children and day to day life improved beyond measure, finding ways to deal with her anxiety and stress and her own blog where she shared her story honestly (www.hannah-lilly.com) has had a positive effect on thousands of readers. She became a published author and Huffington Post Contributor. Her enthusiasm for seeing others transform their lives and how they feel about themselves means she is following her dreams and now speaks about all that is possible inspiring others to find more joy, be friends to themselves and get excited about life.

Knowing what is possible and wanting herself to stay living this way, recently gave Hannah the idea of repeating the experiment. For 3 months and this time inviting people to join her. Open to people all over the world, Hannah will be motivating & supporting everyone through a face book group and social media. An amazing experience and unlimited positive possibilities await everyone that chooses to take part. Small changes that can make HUGE differences for EVERYONE. More joy can only be a good thing for all of us and for the world lets be a part of creating something that makes things better.

When Does Experiment Begin? August 15th

Who Can Take Part? This is for EVERYONE worldwide. There are no rules about how you feel starting off…even if your life is great now chances are you could squeeze in some more joy. It’s about creating an inspirational community of people making small changes that have unlimited positive possibilities and seeing the effects ripple. I will be posting updates and motivating & supporting everyone as well as taking part myself.

Why Are You Doing It Again?  Good Question! Yes, it transformed my life already. It’s still transforming but I’m not perfect and my life has struggles same as everyone. I still have days that I slip back into old habits. Days when I’m stressed out, overwhelmed and fear and doubt are hanging around and that’s why- I know how positive the effects of the feel good rules- gratitude, kindness and getting into the present moment can be- this experiment made me a better person and at the end that’s what matters most that when we take our last breath we know we’ve been the best person we can be kind, loving, forgiving and grateful. Mostly I’m doing it again because I’m so excited to share it with others, when I look back at where I was in 2014 feeling hopeless and afraid to where I am now it’s amazing. Now I know that everything is possible and that’s exciting – I don’t want to keep it to myself!

What’s Involved? For 3 months everyone will follow 10 daily “joy trigger” rules (though even choosing just one to follow would have a positive effect) I will be posting updates and probably a few challenges. I’d love if people shared with friends and family what they are doing and encouraged them to get involved too but no one will be under any pressure to share their own experiences or be interactive in the group.

What Can I Expect to Happen? Well that’s the exciting thing…we don’t know for sure. But it will be good. The experiment not only transformed how I felt about myself but I reached so many dreams and goals I never would have thought possible before. When you feel good, good things happen – there are no limits.

How Do I Get Involved? Find me on face book Hannah Lilly or Hannah Lilly Motivation – PM me or comment on the posts about The Joy Project and I will add you to the community as soon as the group is set up – then you can invite your friends.

If you think you could help Hannah spread the word about The Joy Project in any way at all email hannahlillyfitness@gmail.com
