I found this ladybird lying upturned on its’ back at the door. It wasn’t moving at all, so I thought it must be dead. I felt sad and wondered how it had managed to get into the house and onto its’ back beside the washing machine. I picked it up in my palm and sat in the sitting room wondering what to do with him. I felt like I should at least try something to make sure he definitely was/n’t dead, so I put my other hand over my palm and brought in an old Irish healing method I’d been taught . The ladybird started to move slowly and then was running up my arm – not dead at all! So I let him run around the carpet and then I put him outside on a dandelion leaf.
The second magic thing happened that evening when I was reading my book in the sitting room. A rainbow beam of light was shining down the screen of the TV. I’d never seen it before and wondered what it was being reflected off. I couldn’t figure it out so I decided to just enjoy seeing a rainbow beam in my sitting room.
