Life is a series of challenges and if the way you deal with them on a daily basis isn’t working for you any more it’s time to re-evaluate your coping methods.  Popping pills, endless psychotherapy, copious amounts of weed and praying to baby Jesus may just lead you to a primal scream in front of your neighbourhood coffee shop when Murdock, your favourite barista  forgets to make a smiley face in your vanilla latte.
So, I decided to research my options to find better ways to deal and found out about Reiki Therapy. I talked to a friend of mine about it and she told me she made regular visits to Reiki Master, Mary Willcott, who helped her get through a particularly stressful time in her life.  I was always sceptical of Reiki  since it rely’s solely on a practitioners energy to change your chi or flow of energy through light touch but fuck it, I was now embarking on this journey of alternative therapy and not looking back, so I booked an appointment with her.
Before I got there, I drank 3 espressos and smoked a few cigs hoping it would calm my nerves, which I don’t recommend you doing before a session.  Maybe a solid breakfast and a glass of water would have been the best way to go but that’s never been my thing.
THE SESSION 
When I showed up at Mary’s house, she was personable, sweet and calm (If she was too bubbly and bouncy I would have bolted). She gave me a cup of herbal tea and went over what was going to go down over the next hour. I told her why I was there and she shared her reasons for pursuing a career in Reiki therapy. I appreciated her story and asked her for an interview post session so I could share it with others.
 The first thing she did was smudge the room and around my body in order to clear the energy flow (I want to do this EVERYWHERE I go). I then laid down on the massage bed and closed my eyes while mystical Indian music played in the background.   
She told me to focus on an intent while she worked on me, so I thought about inner peace and joy and not how I was going to write about this. (I’m always writing the story in my head as it happens and it sometimes gets in the way of staying in the NOW).  She placed her hands on various points on my body called Chakras, which are energy centres or vortexes that connect our physical and energy bodies. I actually felt the heat from her hands hover over each vortex of my body and started to cry when she got to my Third Eye Chakra –the seat of intuitive perception.   My body started to convulse and shake uncontrollably which scared me at one point since I thought I was going to levitate.  I felt her tears fall on my arm while I cried and thought ‘Is my energy THAT fucked up that I could make a Reiki Master cry’?!!   ‘Peace and Joy’ I kept repeating in my head.  ‘Peace and fucking joy. ‘Where the fuck am I’???

NEW POST- Testimonial Tuesday-The MISE Experience. 
I am not a foodie.  I have no desire nor passion to do the planning, shopping, chopping, cooking and cleaning involved to making a delicious meal.   I just eat food for nourishment and emotional satisfaction. This usually involves bacon and chocolate.   Now, I wouldn’t say I’m a bad cook.  Typically, I just throw ingredients together as fast as I can, like Rachael Ray, and hope for the best.  When I am lucky enough to have somebody cook for me I try to compliment them on the meal.  I mean I want to make them feel appreciated, I like having someone save me from the mess that is my kitchen. Unfortunately,  this is usually followed by them naming off the ingredients that went into it.  It is about this  time that I grab their arm and say, in the politest tone of voice I can muster, “ I really don’t care”.
That being said, when my good friend Jenny Chan  invited me to a surprise event last week, I went for a show of support and because I was happy I wouldn’t have to slave away in the kitchen for one night.  You see, Jenny is a chef and the founder of a new catering company, MISE.  MISE isn’t just your average catering company, serving you food and blending into the back ground. Their concept is, you choose your favourite film, the venue and the guests and MISE tailors a food menu inspired by the film.  They organize the night and transform your living room from that boring space you watch too much Netflix in, into a vibrant restaurant space.

When a group of dog rescuers arrived at the market to show the dogs available for adoption, somebody had left 12 puppies on the street – 8 of them were approximately 5 weeks old.
In shock, the rescuers didn’t know what to do. The group had recently canceled several adoption days at the market because of bad weather, so they were over their capacity with puppies still needing to be adopted out. Also, the abandoned puppies were so small that they needed to be fed every two hours, including at night.
That’s when a spayed stray dog approached, lay down beside the shoe box where the puppies were sleeping, and began caring for them.

She wouldn’t let anyone get near the babies.

Very carefully, the rescuers placed the puppies closer to her.

She began caressing them and offering the warmth of her belly to the newborns.

The maternal instinct kicked in and…

after a few hours, she had milk and was feeding the puppies.

The rescue group named her Vida, which means “life” in Portuguese.
