Collage: Reiki Flowers: 20th August 2012
July 28, 2013

DSCN2414This recently completed collage reminds me how reiki can open our hearts and minds to new possibilities.

If we become deeply relaxed during a reiki healing, the normal constraints and barriers of our thinking may fall away giving space for new ideas, altered attitudes, creative solutions and new perspectives to emerge. Walls we have built around our hearts may dissolve allowing us to feel openly and deeply in a safe, nurturing space.

This collage is inspired by imagery experienced during a reiki healing.

Now Castlemaine is my home, I am seeking ways to practise reiki in this community. I am interested in using reiki in a volunteering capacity and in sharing reiki healings with other practitioners.

Gemma’s Rug
July 7, 2013

DSCN1651In my early fifties I discovered how calming knitting can be.

During a stressful time towards the end of my work life, I found the rhythmic movements of knitting soothed the inner woman. I had not knitted since my adolescence when I completed a hated school project. Having taken up the needles again, I have continued with simple projects. I make rugs which take a long time to complete which doesn’t matter as I am in no hurry.

I gave the rug featured here to my niece when she was a toddler. She was ambivalent about the gift as I had used a small amount of orange yarn – a colour she did not like. Apparently the orange outweighed all the pink I had included.

I used both knitting and crochet in the making of this rug.
