Isle of Man

Spent this last week in the Isle of Man. The small island between the UK and Ireland, if you’re not sure what I’m talking about. We got the ferry from Heysham – just past Liverpool. Ferry cost almost as much as a week self-catering. In fact, it was only £30 cheaper.

Stayed at the Fairy Lodge. Lovely cottage let by the Shutts, about 100 yards from Fairy Bridge. Would definitely recommend staying here. The kitchen was stocked with essentials like bread, butter, milk, tea, coffee, and other things, when we got there. This made it a lot easier to settle from day one.

The lodge was very comfortable and clean, with tvs, washing machine, tumble dryer, iron, hairdryer, dvd, and loads more. Made our stay very enjoyable. It was also very easy and quick to pack our things at the end of the week – except we forgot to empty the fridge!

Some lovely places on the island. We had a drive up Snaefell. You can get a train ride up there as well. We didn’t pick the best day as the clouds were low. We had our heads in the clouds all the time we were up in the hills. Literally. The views were breath taking when the clouds parted. The drops were ghastly. One wrong swerve and we’d have been flying.

We saw seals basking on the rocks of the Calf of Man – lots of them. The walks through the glens were gorgeous, and unspoilt. There were nice beaches and pebble beaches. Lots of boats and lots of motorbikes as the TT races are on this week. Eating out is expensive, but the meals are huge and very nice. Could have done without the wind. That was the only thing that spoiled the holiday.

Spent a few hours in the Manx Museum in Douglas. Learnt a lot about the Tynwald. This is the oldest running government dating back to the Vikings. Makes the Isle of Man unique. Felt like I was in the UK, but also felt like I was abroad. You can use UK money but they also have there own pound notes/coins, also with the queens head on. There is also a £1 note.

Holiday I would recommend.

I'm an EFT practitioner, Matrix Reimprinter, Colour Therapist, Reiki Healer, Tarot Reader, And Astrologer. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was pioneered by Gary Craig, tapping on acupressure points to help a person heal themselves. It proved to be extremely effective and has been taken up by many people worldwide. The therapy was taken further by Karl Dawson who found it very effective to enable the client to access memories, many hidden, sometimes pre-birth. By accessing the memory in the matrix the client is able to identify the root of problem areas, and with the help of the practitioner address the initial cause of trauma, phobias, addictions, pain, etc. I also use colour therapy and reiki as separate therapies, but they also work well together. It's no coincidence that nurses wear blue - blue is a very calming and relaxing colour. Just the thing you need when recovering. Too much blue, however, can lead to withdrawal and in some cases depression. We've all heard the term: 'I'm having a blue day'. This is just one colour example. Reiki is a very relaxing complementary healing technique that originated in the East. It is used worldwide as an effective therapy. The practitioner allows universal energy to flow through them into the client, to help the client recover. The therapies mentioned above are complementary. In orders words they can be used alongside modern medical practices. I do not diagnose or prescribe. Diagnosis and medication is dealt with by your GP or hospital consultant. I've been reading the tarot and runes for over 30 years both in the UK and internationally. I'm also a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain after studying astrology through the Mayo School of Astrology. I offer Natal Charts, Reports, and Readings. Please note: Tarot and astrology is for guidance only. The reading or report will not make decisions for you and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.
