In December 2016 along with many others, I was thinking about my intentions for 2017.
I believe that the Universe has my back in this life.
That does not mean that I expect life to be easy and that nothing ever goes awry. We are in this world to experience everything about being human. But there is a way to make the experience one of enrichment, trust, and abundance, and it all depends on how we perceive life and all that it contains.
A more common way of looking at it is to say that we are either a glass half full or a glass half empty person.
I also believe that long articles or blogs can be very boring. So I will keep this short and easy to digest.
While I was thinking about my intentions, I came across a woman called Jane Oppegard, who with a friend Su Bear, was holding a Kundalini Retreat in Somerset. The retreat called Finding your Radiance for 2017, was about setting your intentions for the next year, clearing out the old stuff that can block those intentions and make way for the new.
I knew that was for me. Having gone through a difficult time with a personal family matter, I was feeling depressed and low and needed to get away. The idea of a retreat alone was very appealing, but somehow the idea of being able to clear away the negative stuff and start the new year with Radiance put the final touch to my desire.
All I can say is; It worked! And I intend for it to go on working!
I felt rather nervous about going, I had never done yoga before and I wondered whether I would be fit enough. But Jane did allow for that and I was able to sit on a chair. I am not in this photo, I was taking it!
I came back feeling so different, having worked on the chakra system and releasing energy that was holding me back from carrying out my intentions.
So as well as the intentions that I already had in mind, I have now added a new one. I intend to carry on practicing Kundalini Yoga.
Jane is holding a 40 day Transformation online programme at the end of January. This is part of what she says about it on Facebook.
Do you feel that all you do is look after others, work all the time, run around from pillar to post, unorganized, never have enough time for yourself, life stands still and you never seem to move forward?
Do you need motivation to kick a habit? Smoking, drinking, eating, negative thinking?
Do you find yourself repeating the same habits? Such as unhealthy relationships, loosing your temper and getting angry.
If you get stuck in these kinds of life cycles, all they do is create negativity, and illness.

I got back from the retreat last Tuesday feeling absolutley amazing and the rest of the group too. You can see the joy in our faces in the photo above. Jane is wearing the white headress.
