Shopping is a good therapy, but my best medicine is browsing on the web….and I usually end up buying books! I just LOVE books. Proper books, I mean. Yes I have a kindle and do sometimes get ebooks. But I am usually disappointed. I like the feel of a real book, and the look and smell of it. I like that you can stack it on a shelf or a table, pick it up, flick through it, put it down.
So yesterday I was in a bad place, a low mood. Today I’m feeling lighter. I want to try to fight this without medication. So I prayed for help…asked the higher consciousness, the God force, Spirit guides, Angels…asked for a way to overcome this sadness and grief that I feel from losing Mum. Asked for the easing of depression, negativity, and lethargy in my life. I was led to read various articles and blog posts, which led me to all kinds of interesting ideas. I ended up ordering some spiritual and self help books.
One of them came today…‘Is There Life After Death? The Extraordinary Science Of What Happens When We Die’ by Anthony Peake.
I am also wondering about visiting a local Spiritual centre. I may go this evening, if I don’t lose courage. I have been thinking about it for months. I’ll let you know the results. I think the time is right. All through my life I have been passionate about the questions of life and death. I keep returning to it. It never leaves me. Life just gets in the way, sometimes.
If you like spiritual books, I started another blog a while ago, where I talk about some of the books I have collected over the years….Books I have read on my Spiritual Journey
I should just mention that today I have taken a large bag of clothes, shoes, and books to the local Hospice Charity shop. So that is going to help the declutter, and offset my book buying obsession, ( Ha ha, hopefully).
Got to get going, meal to prepare for my hard working, lovely Hubby. Steak and Ale Pie, new potatoes and broccoli, followed by Fresh Strawberries and Ice-cream.
Take care, friends, until next time,
