The Power of Pampering

‘You need some time to relax and not have to think where you’re going to stay next,’ suggests Lisa Pearson, the Mummy Whisperer, as she waves an expansive hand around her house. ‘And anyway, the children will never forgive me if you end up with nowhere to stay.’ It was wonderful to hear, like a gentle hand on my shoulder. From outside it can look like my ‘not knowing’ is unsafe. But I didn’t need saving. Being a nomad means I’ve learned how collaborative and supportive the world is when I let go and focus on what I’d love, rather than worry about what next. Something wonderfully synergistic occurs ( read more...). Its a balancing act, and I still have to remind myself not to spin out my head with what if’s, but play in my imagination with an open heart. Yet Lisa was right. Staying put for a while was just what I needed and I learned how much I appreciate being part of a community.

I turned up at the perfect time for Lisa and her family too. The launch of her new venture Espiritu Salon and Spa was around the corner, the house was filled with hairdressers and therapists and my pampering began! Now I’ve never done much pampering. I’ve always had a vague thought it’s about vanity, and Lord save me from being vain. As I underwent three months of intensive pampering, in the name of training for the salon staff, I became more and more the diva!

What I have so loved about my pampering experience at Espiritu is how much the staff listen to me and so I have at last got my hair in a cut which expresses my lion heart. How many hairdressers I have told over the years that I want it to look mane-like, and yet it has always fallen short of the mark. Not now!

I have also discovered how fabulous it is to express myself fabulously - with gorgeous glamorous nails and even make up when I deem it necessary! I’ve also allowed myself to be pampered with manicures and facials. Have I become more vain? Well, I’m more aware of looking good. And this looking good actually reflects a far deeper feeling good. So I’m now all for some pampering. It has become a part of my lionhearted living, thats for sure.

To herald the launch of this ‘one of a kind’ salon I created this video for its launch last October. If you want to be beautifully pampered, have the real you be expressed through a make over, or come back to yourself through some wonderful therapies such as reflexology or EFT, then find your way to Espiritu Salon and Spa, you will be wonderfully looked after. Not only will the staff look after you, but the products will too. Lisa and the team have invested a lot of time and attention in to finding ranges of products with the least toxic nasties in them.

Here’s the video of the launch!
