ON FINDING THE ONE – AND LOOKING TEN YEARS YOUNGER

ON FINDING THE ONE – AND LOOKING TEN YEARS YOUNGER

Reading Time: 6 minutes

How many times do you hear about ‘finding the one’ and ‘when you are least expecting it they will appear’.  It was certainly the case with me, and with the most important relationship of all, My Hairdresser.

At certain times in my life I have found a hairdresser who understands my hair, and it has lasted for several months or even years – until they leave or move away.  Then their successor who promises to deliver, lets you down, and you go on the search again.

After living in London for many years, and moving out to Buckinghamshire two years ago, I have been on a mission to find a suitable person to manage my rather tricky head of hair, and create a few miracles in the process.

From Toni & Guy to more ‘boutique’ hairdressers, I have tried them all, and it is actually six in total, and just when I had given up and decided it was me and not them, a miracle happened.

I walked into a hairdresser in Gerrards Cross called BROX as the owner Darren, was having an auction for his own Charity, Liberty’s Legacy, and I was donating a prize for the auction for him.

There was something about the way he said ‘Please come back I would like to do your hair’ that resonated with me, and although it took a few months, I did eventually go back and hey presto – I had found ‘the one’.

It was late afternoon, and once he had delivered THE HAIRCUT, the only people who remained were a few staff and Darren himself.  They all exclaimed how different I looked and how much younger I had become with this major transformation.

I naturally felt that they were being kind, or supporting their boss, but did see an amazing difference in the thickness and style of the hair as I flounced out of the Salon.

The following day I was visited by my family, and my daughter who takes no prisoners, commented on the youthfulness of the cut and that it really was the best hairdo she could remember me having.  Praise indeed, so it was not just a figment of my imagination.

The extraordinary difference with Darren is that he actually cares about each individual who walks into his salon, and each hair style is bespoke to the person standing in front of him, taking age, personality and lifestyle into consideration.

The added proof is actually in the type of clientele he attracts, from celebrities to film stars, especially as Pinewood is not far away and maybe because Gerrards Cross has been nicknamed The Mini Hollywood.  But I also did spot an elderly lady who he was kindly serving tea and biscuits to prior to her appointment, so he welcomes everyone equally.

BROX have only been in Gerrards Cross for three years, and his training was in London at one of the major Salons prior to that.

But if you are looking for ‘the one’, then why don’t you try Darren at BROX in Gerrards Cross. I know that some of our readers are scattered across the country, and so perhaps you are inspired and will start looking for your own ‘Brox’ or ‘Darren’ closer to home.  But for those of you not too far away, or even if you have a bit of a drive to get there, it would be time well spent, and unlike other relationships, I am willing to share.

Here is what Darren has to say

“Of course, quality is key and it is my intention to continue to grow the Brox business so that it is known for its attention to detail, personal client care, a warm and welcoming environment staffed by fully trained stylists offering a superb client experience that clients look forward to repeating many times.”

Set in the heart of Gerrards Cross, Brox is located on a bustling High Street with ample parking and the opportunity to shop from a variety of exclusive boutiques, plus the option to enjoy eating in the many cafes and restaurants nearby.

MINDFULNESS – REWRITE THE SCRIPT AND CHANGE YOUR LIFE

MINDFULNESS – REWRITE THE SCRIPT AND CHANGE YOUR LIFE

Reading Time: 6 minutes

 

Just imagine your life is a play, well Shakespeare said ‘All the World’s a Stage and all the Men and Women Merely Players’, and that is a fact.

We are all programmed by our childhood, or a chain of events that have shaped our behaviour or thinking.  Our expectations are based upon our own self-image, and these can be reflected in every aspect of our lives, from our relationships to our career choices.

Sometimes patterns of behaviour can be repeated, like constantly making the same misjudgements in the choice of a partner, or putting your trust in the wrong people.  You can then become a victim, and start to feel sorry for yourself, which becomes a downward spiral to depression.

Any of this familiar?  Well, it is not too late to change, and if you seriously want to rewrite your own life script, I assure you it is possible.

Without going into the details of my own life, I hit a stage where nothing seemed to work, whether it be my career, relationships or where I was living.  So after a few months of therapy with an amazing psycho-analyst called Andy White, with his help I did rewrite the script and am continuing to do so every day.

You may not have to take such drastic measures, but you can challenge just one area of your life and start with Mindfulness.  In simple terms, this means to meditate and be aware of your thought patterns and as soon as you are, and on a deeper level, things will start to change and miracles will begin to happen.

It may seem absurd, but it really is as easy as that.  As soon as you challenge repeated patterns or question your lack of self-belief, the power will be taken out of the demons that have ruled your life.  I am not saying they will vanish for ever, but they will certainly be put in their place and you will have the upper hand.

It is a lot to take in but I assure you it works, and I am going to give you a few easy exercises to get you started on the path to challenging your life patterns, and ultimately changing your life.

Are you ready?

Meditation

Sit in an upright position and breathe deeply.   If you are distracted by the sounds around you simply come back again to the next breath. It takes time so take it slowly and stage by stage, and don’t worry if your mind wanders at first.

 

  • Sit comfortably. Find a spot that gives you a stable, solid, comfortable seat.
  • Notice what your legs are doing. If on a cushion, cross your legs comfortably in front of you. If on a chair, rest the bottoms of your feet on the floor.
  • Make sure your back is as straight as possible – if you have back problems lean against a chair.
  • Let your arms rest. Put the palms of your hands on your legs wherever it feels most natural.
  • Close or rest your eyes. It’s not necessary to close your eyes completely, but better for concentration.
  • Feel your breath. Bring your attention to the physical sensation of breathing: the air moving through your nose or mouth, the rising and falling of your chest.
  • Keep returning to your breath. Your attention will leave the breath at first and wander to other places. There’s no need to block or eliminate thinking. When you notice your mind wandering gently return your attention to the breath.
  • When you’re ready, slowly open your eyes or come back to full gaze. Listen and be aware of any sounds in the environment. Notice how your body feels right now, and feel your thoughts and emotions.

 

If you would like to learn more about meditation and mindfulness please contact us at Glotime.tv and we will send you helpful links and information.

Here are some books you may want to acquire to help get you started.  I am excited for you, sending you love and light and looking forward to hearing about your new transformation.

YOUR NEW SPRING BODY WITH THE ELIXIR OF LIFE

YOUR NEW SPRING BODY WITH THE ELIXIR OF LIFE

Reading Time: 6 minutes

 

YOUR NEW SPRING BODY WITH THE ELIXIR OF LIFE
by our Editor in Chief, Dee Anderson

As someone who has tried out most types of diets, from California juicing and Atkins combination to sheer starvation, believe me I have been a dedicated follower of them all – and I have lost the weight, only to have gained it back after the diet has finished.

So as a seasoned weight loss fanatic, I feel that I am more than qualified to shout about a miraculous discovery that has not only changed my life and body shape, but has altered the way I approach ‘diet’ as well as optimum health and energy.

This ‘discovery’ is in the shape of a highly experienced health practitioner, Gudrun Jonsson, whose life work has been dedicated to health issues, through the combination of healing remedies, diet and personal interaction.

 

Wind back to late September 2017, yes, just last year. I had been through a particularly stressful time with family issues, I had gained loads of weight and was feeling sluggish, anxious, unattractive and lacking in energy.

Around this time I was introduced to a lady who told me that she had lost a lot of weight by visiting a dietician, and as my resolution was merely in the area of shedding the pounds, I decided to give it a try.

The question of dealing with the problem at root level was way off my radar at the time, but as Gudrun explained my past mistakes in failing to address issues of digestion and acid in the system, together with high levels of sugar in the blood, I began to take it more seriously.

Gudrun focuses on a combination of the traditional healing arts from the subcontinent, biopathic treatments and the latest advances in scientific health, ageing and wellness.

Before establishing her practice in London, Swedish-born Gudrun trained and qualified as a biopath at the Institut for Biologisk Medicin in Copenhagen. Gudrun has written two bestselling books – ‘Gut Reaction’ and ‘The Gut Reaction Eating Plan’ – and has made numerous television appearances. Her success has earned her the respect of complementary and medical practitioners alike, and a devoted following among her many clients.

Drawing upon her extensive knowledge of the healing properties of plants and foods, Gudrun’s treatments lead her clients to have a more alkaline and balanced digestive function that impacts on their overall health and wellbeing. Her treatment also includes plant-based serums, oils and balms that can heal skin conditions ranging from acne to psoriasis, and can balance acidic constitutions and heal inflammation.

I have to confess that she probably caught me at the right time, as I was desperate to turn everything around in the health department, but I was in for a shock as she told me that my digestion was practically non-existent. She also explained that I was just skimming over the surface of the problem by doing all the fad diets, and that I needed to look at the core issues before I made any headway at all.

Gudrun prescribed a variety of remedies after administering the most incredible reflexology – and my admiration for her as a practitioner has grown as my health and energy has returned over the past few months, and as my body has shrunk in size – even my feet have lost their puffiness.

I now bump into old friends and acquaintances who hardly recognise me from a distance, and remark on my drastic transformation. I have bought clothes two sizes down from where I was four months ago and am loving getting into my original size 4 kitten heels again without destroying my feet.

Having said all of this, I was ready to listen, and if you do visit Gudrun you have to follow her guidance with dedication; it is not time-consuming and it is not as strict as you would imagine, but you have to be ready to change your life. Your mind, body and soul have to be working together in harmony.

I do believe in Angels, and believe they come in many manifestations. I really believe that Gudrun is a walking angel, who has been sent to me as someone who has transformed my thinking, and ultimately saved my life.

Weight Loss, Health & Wellbeing – It’s a Gut Reaction

Weight Loss, Health & Wellbeing – It’s a Gut Reaction

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

How many times have you heard the expression ‘gut reaction’ or ‘I feel it in my gut’ with reference to the the central control system for the rest of our body.
We are learning more and more that the right food intake and amount of daily exercise can help tremendously, but it goes deeper than that.
Studies show that the imbalance of enzymes in the gut prevent weight loss and wellbeing on a grand scale, and so this is the area we should be encouraged to nurture if we want to look younger and live longer.

A great book to start with is:
The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good! 
The book outlines the results of research that confirms gut microflora and intestinal microbiota play a huge part in metabolism, weight loss, energy and general balance of the intestines.

It goes onto say that inflammation and insulin resistance are major contributors to obesity, and the book will teach you how to reboot the system, and eliminate fat-forming bad bacteria and boost your metabolism.
It also gives you a step by step guide to obtaining your weight loss goals and restore your energy levels, without taking away the pleasures of the food and lifestyle you love.

If you want guidance in person then visit a nutritionist or someone serious who specialises in gut health.

Gudrun Jonsson is such a practitioner, who believes that if you can understand your digestive system, you can and will leap towards optimum health.   In fact, she believes everything changes and moves, and therefore we can reverse symptomatic issues.  Her unique philosophy focuses on a combination of the traditional healing arts from the subcontinent, biopathic treatments, and the latest advances in scientific health, ageing and wellness.

Based in London, Gudrun welcomes clients all over the World.  Before establishing her practice in London, Swedish-born Gudrun trained and qualified as a biopath at the Institut for Biologisk Medicin in Copenhagen. Gudrun has written two bestselling books – ‘Gut Reaction’ and ‘The Gut Reaction Eating Plan‘ – and has made numerous television appearances.

Gudrun has an extensive knowledge of the healing properties of plants and foods, and her treatments lead her clients to have a more alkaline and balanced digestive function that impacts on their overall health and wellbeing.
As well as weight loss and wellbeing, Gudrun’s treatment also includes plant-based serums, oils and balms that can heal skin conditions ranging from acne to psoriasis and can balance acidic constitutions and heal inflammation.
Gudrun also has many celebrity clients whose health has been restored, but the vast spectrum of people she has treated range from all walks of life, and she treats each one equally and with the utmost commitment.

A recent high profile client, Dee Anderson, who is at the helm of Glotime.tv and daughter of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson of Thunderbirds fame, has been a recent client and has this to say.

‘Gudrun has completely turned my life around, and apart from the incredible weight loss that was instant, my skin has restored its youthful glow, and all traces and years of excema flare ups have been eradicated, my anxiety levels have decreased and I have a lot more energy.’
