D.I.Y. Retreat at Home

After sharing blog; “Going outwards and inwards,” in yesterday’s post, I have not stopped wondering about creating a D.I.Y. Retreat at Home for myself. But I wondered, could it be possible? After Googling the possibility, I realised it is possible and as well as suggestions at doing this at home, there were also suggestions of booking a hotel room and having your retreat there, taking what you need for your proposed retreat in your hotel room etc…
There are lots of help and advice out there to create your own retreat at home, whether it be a day, a weekend, or a week. Obviously, if you can manage to go on a retreat, just for a one-off experience, then there is nothing wrong in that and it would be a great experience, but it can be very expensive. But if you do it in the way the blogger did, that I shared in yesterday’s post, then having a lovely setting like she had and creating your own retreat of what you plan to do while there, certainly works out cheaper.

Has any readers done their own D.I.Y. retreat at home?

 

Blog share: “Going outwards and inwards.”

I would like to do a blog share and the blog I am sharing is, “Going outwards and inwards.” I have not long been following this blog, which is written by Nicole Dunn. You will find more about her, here on her “about” page.

What I wanted to particularly share on my blog, was these three posts of hers:

I found these posts, which she shared her solo retreat over three posts that she created for herself very interesting and inspiring. A solo retreat is something I have always wanted to do, whether planed by an organiser, or this case, created by oneself an appealing idea, as it would be an experience on something I have never done before.

Have you ever been on a solo retreat? Did you go on one already organised, or like this lady, did you create you own? Please share you experiences.

Trust your gut instinct

After recently going with my gut instinct, because my gut instinct in the past as usually been right, even when I used to ignore it at one time. I wasn’t going to ignore it again and so I followed my gut instinct of dropping the volunteer place that did not use me. I thought I’d share a quote on the subject of following your gut instinct.

Book review: ‘Heart Thoughts,’ by Louise L. Hay

IMG_1040.JPG

‘Heart Thoughts,’ by Louise L. Hay, I have owned a while now. It was a birthday or Christmas gift from a friend. Although I have read this book some time ago, it is still a book you can go back to and dip your head back into it. This book has been used a couple of times as conversation between my friend to me, so I can look up the page she talked about in her email, to read a quote that seamt right for me, at that period of time in my life. So this book I treasure.

This book is a collection of meditations, spiritual treatments and excerpts from Louise L. Hay lectures. They focus on aspects of our day-to-day experiences and are meant to guide and assist us in particular areas we may be having particular difficulties.

This book can be read through thoroughly, which I suggest you do first, as well as dip in and out of where you need to read.
