The woman behind Healing Words

Anita Neilson is an act of kindness devotee.  She started this blog to focus  on the small acts of kindness and compassion which can make a big difference to the world around us—and are easily done from home!

Anita has Fibromyalgia and M.E. (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and her blog is unique in showing everyone, including others in similar circumstances, how they can contribute to the world!  Through acts of kindness we can stay connected and make a positive contribution.   Anita started blogging and writing at the lowest point in her illness, when she felt completely incapable of contributing to the world around her, as she was (and still is) mostly housebound!  That’s when she realised that kindness was the key to helping her accept and live with this new life of chronic illness.

On this blog you will find spiritual poetry, articles on how to live positively and inspirational posts on how to be kinder and more understanding. 

In 2 short years, she has been published on other websites and publications, including Kindred Spirit Magazine, Thrive Global, Best Self Magazine, Fibromyalgia Magazine, Bellésprit, Finer Minds and Women’s Spiritual Poetry.  Enjoy this blog and let it inspire and uplift you!  Start the conversation and share what you enjoy!

Anita’s book, Acts of Kindness from your Armchair, Ayni Books 2017 is available in paperback and ebook from  Amazon, and others.   Anita has also published her second book, this time of spiritual poetry, Rose Petals floating downstream, available on Amazon.  Her third book (Soul Murmurs) – a compilation of poetry, prose, affirmation and story will be published in July 2019.  Click on Books and Audio for more info!

    • Thank you. It took me a while to realise I could still contribute to the world and help people through kindness even though I was mostly housebound. Gives you hope and contentment. Wonderful to connect. I look forward to following your blog.
