“To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life. “– Jill Bolte Taylor
How Do You Find Your Bliss? Walking the woods and beaches of Gloucester MA, hiking the red rocks of Sedona Arizona, or x-county skiing in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine are my go-to’sfor finding bliss, defined as perfect happiness; great joy. Why does it seem we often must go somewhere in order to find that feeling of ‘bliss?’ Rather than seeking bliss outside ourselves, we also can go within to experience feelings of happiness and joy.
Finding bliss right here, right now in any given moment is a helpful skill that can be achieved through the daily practice of meditation, reiki and self-hypnosis. Daily practice is encouraged because, when we practice regularly we become more skilled, the practice become more innate and it is easier to achieve a state of ‘bliss’ in the recesses of our own mind. It is true, research supports that achieving positive feelings of happiness and joy can be enhanced when surrounded by nature, using all of our senses to take in the surrounding beauty. But learning, having, and using these helpful tools to create bliss in any given moment is valuable for helping us move through the chaos of a complicated world, with greater levels of peace and calm.
“Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that’s very important for good health.”— Dalai Lama
To get started, contact us to learn a simple 5 minute relaxation technique. If not true bliss, you can at least learn to slow your thoughts and experiences greater levels of peace and calm, in mind and body, and over time, with practice, a feeling of bliss.

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Today has me reminiscing about Nor’Easter Riley- derived from ‘Reilly,’ which comes from the Old Irish name Raghailleach.
(Video by Tucker Destino)
‘Sheltering-in-Place’ Nor’Easter Riley brought hurricane-force winds, astronomical tides, record-breaking waves and flooded roads. With flying debris and falling tree limbs, I chose instead to shelter-in-place and watch the 3-day storm unfold on the news and social media. Over the 3 days I watched as people were evacuated to safety, trees fell onto homes and branches through car windshields. Never did I expect during this Nor’Easter that I would end up injured in my own home!
Accidents Often Occur in the Home Despite my efforts to stay home and safe, while home alone I ended up falling down my basement stairs. Late that night my husband was on his way home with a weekend guest. I was distracted and hurrying down the stairs in stocking feet to get my laundry, while talking on the phone with my 90-year old mother. Slipping on the wooden steps as if on ice, my feet flew up in the air. Landing hard on one step, I bounced onto the next, then slid down 2 more, then ultimately the basement floor. My phone and I flew in opposite directions.
