Three is the magic number

Three nights of uninterrupted sleep and I don’t know myself, I’m feeling so much better! I’m so grateful to Teresa for the wonderful treatment.

Gently Drifting

I’m still demented with insomnia, I’m back on the magnesium again to see if I can get sleep. I’ve left the phone downstairs, kept the lights down, tried listening to relaxing music, tried meditation, tried breathing and goodness knows what else but I still can’t sleep!


Today I went along to have a reiki crystal healing treatment at Gently Drift with Teresa McCabe. I’ve had reiki before but I don’t think I had them with crystals. Teresa is based at the Hair Lounge in Caltragh, she has a gorgeous room there, full of colour and calm. I could feel myself relaxing the minute I stepped in there.

I filled out the treatment form and was made comfortable on the couch. Teresa explained what she was going to do, it was all very calm and I felt safe and secure. Firstly a pendulum was used to see where there were issues and corresponding crystals were placed on my relevant chakra points.

The first thing I noticed was a feeling at the top of my head – like little sparks coming off me. It reminded me of when I was a kid and a cat was put on my head – but that’s a whole other story! Then my left shoulder got really hot and my left hand started tingling – without Teresa going anywhere near them.

What amazed me most was the heat coming from Teresa’s hands – she had them hovering over me and it was like being on a sun bed or having a heater over me. As my eyes were shut I could see colours: white, purple, green and blue flashing. It was hard for me to relax but that’s normal for me, I did stay still though and I really enjoyed the treatment.

When it was over I felt very calm and relaxed and I’m absolutely shattered tonight – so maybe I might sleep! Teresa suggested I wear something red to keep me grounded – I don’t think she had a lobster outfit in mind though!


Thanks so much Teresa for your healing hands and calming way, this was just what I needed. You can find Gently Drift here.


A bit of a challenging day. Firstly if you follow me on Facebook you will have read about my Krakow dilemma. I’m going to Krakow next week and I’m always giving Jono stick for booking rough places….well I seem to have beaten him!

I’m a cover girl!

Well what an exciting day, I can actually say I’m a cover girl on a magazine. Now I know some people get on the front cover of Vogue or Cosmopolitan but I’m on the cover of the Migraine Ireland magazine! I’m delighted and I love the photo – Lucy took this of me and it won a prize in the Chronic Pain Ireland competition.

I have migraines on a regular basis and the magazine interviewed me about them and about my life in general. I’m delighted with the article, I hope you will be able to read it 🙂
