A Photographer’s Diary, Free Blog Series and Headache!By
I am very keen to pass on, through Healing with Photography, as much information as possible, to help people who are suffering in some way with low self-esteem, depression, anxiety. It’s with this in mind, that I have been working hard to bring together a group of healers and life coaches from around the world to share their work with my community, through a guest blog. This is eventually going to lead on to a teleseminar next spring, again, a chance to bring even more information to help people, whilst being philanthropic.
I have enlisted the support of people to the blog, who I followed, and studied and helped me in my recovery. The likes of Sonia Choquette, six sensory and wonderful psychic. Sonia helped me to renew a relationship with my intuition, and begin to trust me again to listen to my inner guidance, the first major break-through for me, and now I use my intuition all the time in my business to help me move forward with ease. She is an author from the illustrious, and life changing Hay House publishing company, renowned around the world; I was ecstatic when Sonia agreed to be a part of this blog series.
My list has been long, and many well-known people in this field, haven’t bothered to reply to my request, though undaunted, I continued to draw up my list and just ask. I’m very happy to say all the people that I really wanted on board, to share their skills with you have said yes. Jennifer McLean, from her long running, and life transforming, Healing with the Masters series, is taking part. Jennifer introduced me to many people who broadened my horizons through her series, and I’m so looking forward to being able to share her gifts with everyone. Business coach Jack Canfield, the funny and talented, life coach Amanda Gore, actress and healer Dee Wallace, and then some UK healers, like Amelia Campbell.
Creating this blog has given me a bit of a technical challenge. Many guests have opted to do an interview with me, and then I write the blog up afterwards. And as a few of the guests are based overseas, lengthy telephone conversations, with me trying to record the conversation on speaker phone, has been challenging. Trying to remain relaxed, whilst balancing phones and tape recorders together, and back up recorders via the computer, has been very tricky. Though I’ve found that there are a few free apps out there which allow you to record Skype calls, so now I’m trying to do all interview via Skype.
How often do we stop and say, what did we do before mobile phones and the internet? Yet honestly, how did we cope? And what an amazing era we are living in, where we can speak to people around the world for free, with pretty much crystal clear clarity. I am so grateful for it. Otherwise this guest blog series ‘Finding You’ would have been much harder to put together.
This series has also needed me to design a new blog page for the website, with a new banner. Being a photographer, of course meant that I wasn’t going to buy in any photos, so I spent a while in the garden on my hands and knees, taking some flower shots. That was followed by a few hours of frustration trying to create the banner and use all the tools I needed to on the computer. Add to that, head shots of all the contributors lined up on the page too, and we have many hours spent learning new skills! The sooner I find myself a graphic designer the better!
It’s been great fun though putting this series together; I get to polish off my interview skills again, and speak to people, who inspired me to find a better me, a calmer me. And I am hoping that they inspire my readers too, and bring some calm into their lives.
So if you would like to be the first to read the new series, ‘Finding You’, and have access to ideas of how to live a calmer, happier life, then please do sign up to the free newsletter from my website. Not only will you get to see the blog series first, it also entitles you to a free downloadable meditation, which is getting some very complimentary reviews. http://www.healingwithphotography.co.uk/newsletter.asp
Living in the beautiful rural county of Yorkshire it was perhaps natural for Ruth to have an affinity with the countryside and its wildlife. Creativity is Ruth’s driving force finding an outlet in television & radio she worked for many years as producer for BBC & ITV.
However a love of photography and for being surrounded by nature called her to go back to her photography training and bring pleasure and joy to people through her connection with our planet.
Staying in the moment when taking her images allows her to experience the natural magnificence unfolding before her eyes. It is this moment of mediation, of gratitude, that she evocatively conveys through her images.
