A Grateful Heart

A Grateful Heart

I woke up this morning with a very grateful heart, and believe me I don’t always wake up this way!  It’s something I usually have to work towards as the day moves forward; as like everyone, in the mornings, sometimes the schedule for the day ahead, or my worries, can get the better of me when I first open my eyes.   

So I became curious about what was different?

Is Your Mind Effecting Your Wellbeing?

Is Your Mind Effecting Your Wellbeing?

“Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind and spirit; the realisation that everything we do, think, feel and believe has an effect on our state of being” 

Our minds, bodies, and hearts are inextricably linked, and don’t operate separately from the other.

Cultivating Patience During Expansion

Cultivating Patience During Expansion

“Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself.”  Matsuo Basho

Spring is a time of sudden growth, rebirth and expansion.  However we’re also entering a period where we need to have patience, during the beginning of this new cycle.

Trusting In Right Timing

Trusting In Right Timing

“If life is going to bring us something even better than we imagined, it would begin by life not giving you what you wanted.”  Matt Kahn (Loving Fearlessly)

We often have these deep desires in life for things to go a certain way, to get that job, to have that person as our partner, or possibly for something to evolve in the exact way we would like it to, and when these don’t happen the way we planned, or perhaps unexpectedly dissolve, it can end up in us feeling disillusioned, as life has a funny way of not turning out quite the way we intended.

Are You Taking Care Of You?

Are You Taking Care Of You?

How have you been looking after yourself lately?

Have you been neglecting your own needs?

Or are you the last on a long list of priorities?

It’s a common theme in this 24/7 lifestyle for our own care to take a back seat while looking after the needs of others.  This could be your work, your education, your children, your partner, or extended family and friends.

Navigating The In-between

Navigating The In-between

"I am the immeasurable potential of all that was, is, and will be, and my desires are like seeds left in the ground.  They wait for the right season and then spontaneously manifest into beautiful flowers and mighty trees, into enchanted gardens and majestic forests."

When we have big dreams and a desire to create, the in-between time from when you plant the seeds, to their evolution, can sometimes be a challenging period of time.

Being In Flow With Change

Being In Flow With Change

Change is the one constant in life, it can arrive upon us gradually or happen in the blink of an eye, sometimes by choice, or it can come along and blindside us, turning our lives upside down.

Everything is in a constant state of flux, it’s the cycle of life; creation, maintenance and then dissolution.  It’s shifting every day in all areas of our life, however often it’s our resistance to change and hanging on to what no longer serves us that can cause the most difficulty and discomfort in our lives.

Consciously Create Your 2018

Consciously Create Your 2018

A new year signals a time of opportunity, a time to consciously give our lives an overview, to see what’s working, what no longer serves, and to take action steps to create an exciting and fulfilling year ahead.

However, letting go and change also can create some fear of the unknown, it can bring up uncertainty, maybe even some feelings of anxiety around what you actually want to bring to life?

So how can you move into 2018 with clarity and purpose, moving through any barriers you might have, or to overcome any self-doubt?

Here are 6 ways to move into your full potential for the year ahead.

APPRECIATION FOR 2017

APPRECIATION FOR 2017

2017 has been a year of new beginnings for many, a lot of change and transition.  Now as we start to wind down, it’s a perfect time for a little self-reflection, and to take the time to appreciate the good in our lives.   

Often we can look back and get caught up in negative thinking, judging ourselves for all we haven’t done, or perhaps focus on the struggles we’ve had; however the more we can be grateful for the good in our lives, for all the things we have achieved, or overcome, the more you'll feel uplifted and likely to head into 2018 with a positive outlook.

Can You Choose To Be Happy?

Can You Choose To Be Happy?

The word happiness in itself, I find can be controversial.  After all what is happiness? Is it something we can attain, or is it something that we never truly reach, the wholly grail, a bit like enlightenment?  We all would love to have it, but is it really possible for the average person?

I personally believe it is definitely something we can cultivate more of in our lives, by making choices that lift us up vibrationally, improving our energy and outlook.  By cultivating relationships that bring us connection and feed the soul, practicing self-care, as well as having an appreciation for what we already have in our lives.

Small shifts can have a big impact

Small shifts can have a big impact

How are you feeling today? 

Do you feel alive, vibrant, ready to take on the world; or a bit sluggish and fatigued, perhaps wondering how you’re going to get through the day? 

Grabbing a coffee might make you feel great for a few hours, and a glass of wine may give you the pep to get through your evening; but are you running on empty under the surface?

Leaning Into Emotion

Leaning Into Emotion

When we’re struggling, experiencing a difficult emotion or circumstance, it’s human nature to want to push this away, get rid of the feeling, or numb it down as an alternative to the pressure we might feel going on internally.

After all, our basic human want is to feel happy.  However, life being what it is, while we can do our best at keeping all the balls in the air, sometimes they just go flying right!

Create The Life You Want To Live

Create The Life You Want To Live

How do you want to feel today?

When you woke up did you take some time to think about what your day would look like?  Or did you just head straight for the coffee machine and check your email?

The morning is a powerful time where we can set ourselves up with intention for the day ahead; rather than just slipping into a long to do list, possibly still a bit aimless as to what your priorities are, and how to get it all done.

29 Gifts

29 Gifts

Give a little and make a bit impact!

I’ve been inspired this month by the story of Cami Walker.  Diagnosed with MS at a young age, losing her ability to walk, use of her hands, plus sight in one eye; her prescription from an African healer, was to give away 29 gifts in 29 days, with the words that “healing doesn’t happen in a vacuum, but through our transactions with other people.”
