Misleading statements: After many years of keeping rare breed pigs I sometimes forget that not everyone talks the same ‘piggy’ language as I do. A recent incident brought it home to me that I should always remember that what is normal to me is not the same for my customers. I only sell ‘half pigs’ not joints or slices of bacon, etc. but when a new customer came accompanied by three burly friends ‘to help him carry the pig’ I realized that he thought he was buying it whole and would have to cut and joint it himself. I shall make things clearer in future!

The list in this unit tells you how to conjugate the four groups of weak verbs, presented in the Vocabulary as (1), (2), (3), and (4). Similarly, a strong verb will be listed with (s). You can then look it up in Irregular verbs in the Grammar section towards the end of the book. All irregular, or strong, verbs used in this book will be listed.

A key point to note when attempting accountancy is that costing is a science, based upon assumptions and calculations; pricing uses that information, but is much more subjective than that. Some would say that pricing is actually more of an art form.
When resonating a tuning fork, other tuning forks nearby will vibrate with the same sound even if they have not been struck. This describes entrainment. In this way, when the client begins to quieten and relax in the process of a Reiki treatment, they are captured by entrainment. The electromagnetic energy field of the practitioner aligns, as one, with that of the client. After the treatment the client will feel changed in a profound way.
