  • A Time of Awakening

    Sibyl Mag March 20

    The world has now come fully into the information age. There is so much information that even with the fastest computers, it’s difficult to keep up. Along with this tremendous expansion, it seems, simultaneously, that the world is shrinking. Every day we watch as events occurring on the other side of our planet appear live on the television screens in our living rooms and begin to feel more akin to one another than in times past.

    I will never forget coming home for lunch on September 11th, 2001. I made some lunch and sat down to watch the news, after the news had finished, I left the TV on for the usual programming, which I don’t usually do. The programme was interrupted for a news flash and my instant thought was that the Queen Mother had died; I sat horrified as the pictures of the first aircraft flew into the twin towers of the World...Read More

  • What Is the Negativity Bias?

    Posted on Mon, 3 June 2019

    This article was written by Kendra Cherry and updated in April 2919 published by the very well mind I hope you enjoy reading it.

    Have you ever found yourself dwelling on an insult or fixating on your mistakes? Criticisms often have a greater impact than compliments and bad news frequently draws more attention than good. The reason for this is that negative events have a greater impact on our brains than positive ones. Psychologists refer to this as the negative bias (also called the negativity bias), and it can have a powerful effect on your behaviour, your decisions, and even your relationships.

    What Is the Negative Bias?

    The negative bias is our tendency not only to register negative stimuli more readily but also to dwell on these events. Also known as positive-negative asymmetry, this negativity bias means that we feel the sting...Read More

  • Watch Your Thoughts for They Become Your Destiny - Being positive is accepting reality, not idealising it

    Posted on Fri, 3 May 2019


    “Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
    Watch your words, for they become actions.
    Watch your actions, for they become habits.
    Watch your habits, for they become your character.
    And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.’

    — Frank Outlaw

    What we think, we become.

    Reality is not neutral. We are always passing judgment on what happens around us and to us. You and I can face the same event yet will react differently—our thoughts are what shapes our reality, not the other way around.

    That’s why most people suggest we think positively—it has become an oversimplified approach to make us feel better. Sometimes “Be positive” can be terrible advice.

    Telling someone who’s sad or depressed that positive thoughts will change their...Read More

  • Why use Breath4Life™ Breath Work? What makes it so powerful and unique?

    Posted on Mon, 29 April 2019

    Acorn to Oak is a holistic and spiritual organisation, based in UK. Founded in 1998 by Pennie Quaile-Pearce SRN RSCN MA MSc LCH RMA Cert Ed. Pennie is the creator and main tutor for Breath4Life Breath Work.

    Why use Breath4Life Breath Work?

    The breath is our fuel for living, without which we wouldn’t survive. Many of us rarely acknowledge how we breathe, despite it being the building block for all life's processes – not to mention essential for maintaining a healthy mind - body - soul equilibrium. Breathing is a fully automatic process, beginning at birth and continuing without interruption until the day we die. For most, it can be a fully unconscious process. There is no need to attend consciously to the way you are breathing. We expect to breathe quite adequately while sleeping each night, as we do...Read More

  • Make a Dent in the Universe

    Posted on Fri, 4 January 2019

    Bashing self-help is all the rage these days.

    In 2019 (and beyond) it’s cool to be the nonchalant type who doesn’t care about goals, sees competition as inherently evil, thinks self-help is a charlatan’s game and mocks people who want to improve.

    Let’s just call a spade a spade. They’re full of it.

    They won’t admit it out loud, but deep down they’re insecure and would try to reach their goals if they weren’t afraid to fail. Maybe I’m projecting, but maybe I’m right.

    Forget about everyone else, let’s talk about you.

    You want to be a master of the universe, don’t you? You want to see just how much juice you can squeeze out of this life.

    Why not own it?

    Let other people bicker about trivialities and stay crabs in a barrel.

    You get one life. If you want to become a master of the universe, not only should you do it, but you should feel zero shame about it.

    From now on, I’m only writing for...Read More

Testimonials

Felt happy with the course, a lot of information to take on board. To learn how to pick up on different pathologies was awesome and I really enjoyed when I picked up things correctly. Got a good starting block to improve apon.

Lorraine Bonner, Carer

I like to think of myself as a fairly middle of the road person. I'm married in my 30's and have one daughter and have had a life full of very high and very low points. If truth be told I was a little sceptical and scared before I experienced my Breath4LifeTMBreath Work session. However, the opportunity arose so I took it. On the day of my session, Pennie talked me through what was going to happen and how I would feel and one of the best things about Breath4LifeTMBreath Work is that all the thoughts and emotions I felt during my session would remain private as this isn't a talking Therapy but taking action. The healing is all done by me and my breath! My session was wonderful. It lasted 2 hours and I was guided through every breath. I experienced the healing energy that I had read about, and the 2 hours was truly a life changing experience for me. After my session, I can quite honestly say that the things that used to bother me before really don't anymore. All the memories good and bad are still part of me, but I don't have the same emotional baggage attached to them and better still, I don't have to drag that baggage with me through life. If you are even a little bit interested in Breath4LifeTMBreath Work, please give it a go, it really is life changing and enlightening.
