Sam’s last message

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:27 pm by Aleksan

I don’t know whether to share this or not, or who with. But I want to share it. Just before Sammy died, he was lieing on a blanket on the lawn on his right side. I said goodbye by touching our foreheads together. Then I noticed his left eye was looking at me intently.

My mind became filled with an expanding bubble – it was Sam’s mind, still and clear. He was telling me he was sorry to go. Just that. It was very powerful, and then the message bubble shrank back, leaving my normal mind feeling thankful but sad.

Sammy died soon after. His mind message means a lot to me, containing hope – hope of what I don’t know. We often had telepathic moments, but this last message was special…thank you Sam x

Sammy – love and loss

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:57 pm by Aleksan

I sort of avoid going by Sammy’s grave but make myself + today I looked back and. I “saw” him leap out, run across the grass to be with me – now I am crying again – I know it’s normal, I have seen so many dogs pass away – thank you for sharing about Daisy – – life and death are very strange – I guess we grow through the experience of love and loss, and it helps us give meaning to life – but it is so hard. Mostly I’m OK, even a bit manic, but the waves of loss keep returning. Thanks for listening, you’d have thought I would be used to it by now, but it gets worse, perhaps because my own mortality is not very far away…x

Song of the Nightingale

Last night, just before falling asleep, I heard the magical, bubbling song of the nightingale, outside my bedroom – followed by a good sleep and dreams – not heard it so close before…

Lammas Day

In Ladakh, where Tibetan Buddhism holds sway, when an old person developed wrinkles and white hair, people said “You are ripe for the Harvest, let it be a good one!”

After much dithering and confusion, Johnson has got it right…

Two things Johnson has got right – at last – after much dithering and confusion, we must face and fight the Obesity epidemic in the country and we must face and fight the World Covid 19 Pandemic. Covid has not gone away, it is taking an increasing toll each day, and Europe is in danger of more waves too.

Yet there are people out there jetting about in planes, not wearing masks and seemingly in denial of reality. Pandemics have a habit of lingering in dark corners and coming back with a vengeance. Of course the tourist industry is important, but it must come second to the Health. The Labour position seems to be the wrong way round, work and jobs do not come before Health.

Being unwell myself, and suffering from weakness and fatigue after a bout of Pneumonia does focus the mind. I also had a career as a Doctor, where my patients always came before vested political or financial interests – this does nor seem to happen anymore….

Yes, Mr Johnson, you are getting there, and I suspect that your own brush with the Grim Reaper has focussed your mind – at last.

I miss my Sammy…..

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:56 am by Aleksan

I miss my dear old Sam so much – he was like my shadow, always near, always fun. I am still grieving for my Sammy, the waves of sadness come over me, but I also smile, and am grateful for his life, and that I could share it with him xxx

It’s been a while, all of July, while I have felt in limbo, dreaming a lot, sleeping, not eating much, drifting in the Healing Light – I have not been out for a few days, but visited Blondie’s Bridge today where I sent Peace to each of the Four Directions and called upon Guides, Local Spirits and Ancestors for their Blessings. – I am moving more into the Light, and stay close to the Natural World – dare I say it yet, but my bones are warmer, my heart lighter and my Soul more joyful – love to you all for your healing and kind wishes, Thank You x

Sammy, you are all ears, legs and tails!

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:17 am by Aleksan

Sammy could no longer rush up and down the stairs in his last few months, due to his worn out old bones. We got a stair lift for me, who also had become unable to get up and down without a struggle – and wondered about Sammy using it too. We thought he might be frightened and try and get off, but no, he took to it instantly. I used to say “Sammy, you are all ears, legs and tails” as I lifted him up on to my lap. We then had a very cosy ride together, up or down, and he seemed to enjoy me chewing his ears!

A slow recovery….

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:19 am by Aleksan

Three weeks ago I was smitten by a very unpleasant virus – it affected me in several ways – fevers, coughing, breathlessness, visual problems, especially blurring and unfocused eyes and strange pains in my fingers. The tests showed I was, at an early stage, Covid Negative, but there are a lot of false negatives!

This condition lasted about two weeks, although at first I thought I was recovering. However I went backwards for awhile, but now I am slowly improving. I seem to have classical post-viral fatigue syndrome which includes tiredness, difficulty with exercise, aches and pains during the night. I continue with blurred vision and loss of focus and I have lost my appetite.

I know it will take me another couple of weeks or more to make a full recovery, and I have to find the patience for this. Meanwhile I put my faith in Doctor Fresh Air, Doctor Light and Energy, Doctor Rest and Healing and Doctor Connection with Nature.

But I do not despise Medicine – Jeff has just brought me a very large bottle of Croft’s Original Sherry – one glass three times a day before meals…
