ImageAs a tribute to dear old Rabbie Burns and a reminder that it’s not long ’til Valentine’s Day folks, let’s celebrate the wonderful feelings of not only falling in love, but being in love and staying in love. It’s a precious and fragile thing. When unrequited, when lost, it delivers a pain beyond words. Cherish your loved ones.

heart graffiti 1000x359In the Hindi and Nepalese languages, the word “sally” means sister in law. In those cultures, family positions dictate specific roles and duties within the family life.

Those who have the position of sally, must take responsibility for the arrangements of the wedding and marriage of family members.

It’s a funny old world, this life!

peacock croppedDear clients of mine who will be having a wedding blessing next year, have told me that the peacock is a very important yogic symbol as it is capable of turning poison into nutrition and represents transformation.

Strangely, as symbolism and meaning are so important to me, I have never particularly considered my own surname and it’s relevance to weddings and celebrations, which is my joyous work!

Of course, their insight into the peacock meaning got me going and I had to research further.

Apparently the symbolism of a peacock at a wedding ceremony can bring the following amazing qualities to your special day!:

Integrity, showing your true colors, nobility, holiness, guidance, protection, watchfulness, great vibrancy, “a walk of faith”, self-esteem booster, vision, refinement, spirituality and incorruptibility (a take on that ‘forsaking all others’ line from traditional wedding vows!) Phew!

I was delighted to also learn that in Hindu culture, the Peacock is associated with the deity Lakshmi, representing benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and good luck.

Well, well, the power of a name and the symbolism of a stunning bird!

“No pressure Sally!” I thought to myself.

Hope that I can live up to it, certainly trying my best xx

Thought I’d check out why some folk might be in irrational fear of these 24 hours & it’s all a bit odd, LOL.

There are a variety of apparent connections with roots both in religion & politics. One powerful masonic reference is to the fascinating Knights Templar, 100s of them were arrested in France on Friday 13 October 1307 falsely charged with heresy, immorality and abuses. They were bad boys, but so interesting.  Jesus is said to have died on a Friday, legend also says that if 13 people sit at a table to dine, one will die within the year.

In Greece & Spain the date of fear is Tuesday 13th. Wedding couples always feel so relieved that I never planned Corfu marriages on a Friday 13th, but were unaware of the look of fear on locals when ceremony dates fell on Tuesday 13th.  Ignorance is sometimes bliss.
