Personal Update

How are you faring in your part of the world with the lockdowns? Or is life back to normal where you are?

After about three months now of being in solitary confinement here in the UK (including not having seen any friends or family during that time) I have decided to go over to Wellington, New Zealand at the end of July. I spent several years living in NZ and have permanent residency there.

I am planning to let go of my home here in Yorkshire and move everything over. I have friends and my dad there and so it would be a better place for me to be, in addition to the fact that NZ no longer has to do any social distancing, having eliminated coronavirus (at least for now).

When I moved to Yorkshire last October, it was following 4 years of full time travel and a burnout that took months to recover from. Moving here was a bit like putting a pin in a map — I knew I needed to be somewhere for a long period, but it felt like it didn’t really matter where.

I found a lovely home and planned to settle. However, I am finding that my plans of meeting people and creating a new life here in the UK are on hold, and who knows for how long. I cannot complain, as coronavirus has not impacted my life too much and I am able to work from home. Most of us have our plans on hold in some way. But it’d be nice to go to a place where there is no social distancing and where I can be closer to loved ones.

As I’ve moved so much, I absolutely do not want to move again after this, so my guess is that I will be in New Zealand long term, although with all the twists and turns life has taken for everyone recently, who the heck knows what will happen next for any of us…!

As I’ll be organising an international move over the next couple of months I will be slowing down at work, and I have been busy finishing up a couple of projects in readiness for my move:

Where abouts are you and how are you holding up in your part of the world?

Meet Anna

Hi, I’m Anna Sayce! My purpose here on this website is to provide practical techniques and information to help empaths to understand, and fix the root of their energetic overwhelm & also to help sensitives to embrace and develop their intuitive gifts. I believe that developing our spiritual & intuitive side is very powerful and allows us to improve our own lives, and if we wish, even make the world a better place for others. Discover more >

    Hi Anna, we will miss your physical presence in Britain, but thankfully your spiritual presence, and your on- line presence, will still be with us and helping us all to develop.

    Three months of solitary confinement must have been very hard, thank goodness for the internet.

    My wife and I were in isolation, for just over a month, and then ordinary “lock-down” ever since, and that has been hard enough, but we had each other to talk to.

    It was really strange going out beyond the boundaries of the house after the first 5 weeks of total containment.

    We were in isolation because I believe I contracted Corona virus at the beginning of March and was ill for several weeks, with another month to recover. My wife seemed to have got it, but with different symptoms, and there are still some lingering after effects.

    This has catapulted me into the world of healing and massage, which I believe is achieving success.

    The last few months have been a very, very, strange journey, with, sadly, many people deeply affected by the loss of loved ones, with not even the chance to be with them when they went.

    I am sure there will be a great amount of psychological effects as a result of this episode in our lives, all will be affected at some level.

    Let us hope that the pandemic will eventually bring more awareness and harmony into our world, less materialism, less pollution and greed, improved health and social care, and a great advance in peoples’ awareness of spirituality.

    Bon Voyage to New Zealand, when you go, and we look forward with Love to the future unfolding.

    Greetings, Anna from North America!

    Wishing you lots of luck with your big move to NZ. It’s a lovely place! Your blog inspired me to count up my moves which came to 17, with 6 of those being long-distance, continent to continent. I’m sure you know, don’t move anything you can easily replace!

    Keep your eyes on the prize/the big picture and you will be in your new home before you know it. thank you for the update.

    Wishing you luck for your big move across the ocean! A wise choice. Social distancing is likely to be with us for a while.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your sweet and insightful comment. Sorry to hear you have not been very well, from what I have read, there are a fair few people who’ve had coronavirus, who are struggling with lingering effects of it. I had an antibody test as I was ill with flu too a few months back, but mine came out negative.

    3 months of solitary has definitely not been easy – another 6 weeks to go before I am off. x

    M – Wow that is a lot of moves. This time I am taking pretty much everything with me (NZ is a very expensive place to buy household stuff.) Thanks for the good wishes 🙂

    Hi Ellie,

    Thank you, hope you’re well x

    Stefan – thank you!

    Hi Anna,

    Thank you for the update. I feel very excited for you to be moving back to NZ. I would absolutely rather be there then the U.K.

    Also, I cannot wait for your new ebook to come out, I will definitely be getting that.

    All this solidarity has somehow been the push needed for me and my husband to relocate as well. Packing and getting our house ready has been so stressful that it has almost taken over any space in my brain for obsessing over covid 19. I do try to stay updated but am very discerning about the info I get.

    Anyhow, thanks for another great newsletter.

    Hi Jillian,

    Glad you enjoyed the newsletter, and good luck with the move! 🙂
