Making Plans

Today I came across a beautiful quote:
“A goal without a plan is just a wish”. Antoine de Saint-Exupery French writer.

How many Tarot drawings have we pulled in the past few years that emphasize making a plan for your dreams? As much as resisted joining Pinterest it has become a big part of my week. I don’t know how others like using it, but one thing I’ve discovered it allows me to do is plan!

When I was a kid my grandmother told me about a book she kept with clippings from magazines. Things she’d like to have, places she’d like to go and so on. She didn’t have that book anymore and didn’t remember where she lost it. But it seemed sad that she no longer had it to look at.

She inspired me to create my own book of dreams and I’ve made several of them over the years. Today they’re packed somewhere in some box some place here in the house or attic. When I started using Pinterest, I realized it’s a digital dream book. A place to gather ideas and make plans.

Sometime in the future when I can get the center into a physical space again, I plan on having various types of gatherings. Some formal, some educational and some simply for fun.

One of those fun ideas is Tuesday Tea Time at Two. A simple gathering for conversation and elegance. High Tea where we can dress up and feel pretty. Low Tea for those days when we want to relax. So here in this board on Pinterest are my inspirations… Tea, Coffee & Cakes

Aroma Therapy For A Good Night’s Sleep

How Do We Sleep

Sleeping WolfIn today’s world of stress and anxiety many people are suffering from insomnia or restless sleep. A warm cup of milk, a relaxing meditation or even the soothing sounds of a gentle surf playing on your stereo can help ease tension. But sleep doesn’t often bring relief for everyone. Some people take their fears and tears into the night and play them out through dreams. Restless dreams or nightmares can be just as disruptive as no sleep at all. While analyzing your dreams might be helpful to resolving issues, sometimes you simply want a good nights sleep, a nice deep refreshing sleep!

Learning a little about the mechanics of sleep may help in understanding how we affect ourselves during the day and create bad sleeping patterns at night. Which is kind of circular in its process. Deep in your brain you have a “Master Clock” that coordinates a series of biological clocks that exist throughout your body. The biological clocks are a grouping of interacting molecules in the cells through out your body. These biological clocks control the Circadian rhythms, which are found in most living things. Including animals, plants and many tiny microbes. Circadian rhythms are physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle, responding primarily to light and darkness in an organism’s environment.
