Creating A New Story

Creating A New Story

You have a dream, but what about that little voice inside your head which pops up, telling you “who am I to do this?”…. but I ask you, “who are you not to?”

How can we begin to recognize old patterning, behaviours, or ingrained habits that are no-longer serving?  And more importantly how can create a new story?

If You Struggle To Let Go - Invite Surrender

If You Struggle To Let Go - Invite Surrender

Just let go…

Easier said than done right?

We’re encouraged to let go, anyone been Marie Kondo’ing it lately?  But when you care about something a lot, it tends to have a lot of attachment, especially to certain outcomes; usually the way we think something ‘should’ be, or we desperately want it to be.  

I’ve been experimenting a lot lately with the idea of ‘surrender’, when I find letting go difficult.

Creating A Consistent Meditation Practice

Creating A Consistent Meditation Practice

One of the questions I get asked the most is, “How do I develop a meditation practice?”

When we want to start new routines, it can feel a bit daunting, where do we start, how do we build it, and how do we create that desire to show up day after day?

Crystals For Creation

Crystals For Creation

Crystals, while sometimes still seen as a little ‘out there’, or alternative, are a vast resource that comes from the earth, having been held deep within for millions of years; in fact they are said to be the earth’s messengers and wisdom keepers.  They can be very powerful during meditation, and I also use them in my Kinesiology clinic, as they assist us to reconnect to their high vibrational energy.

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.

April Energy – Patience, Mindfulness & Reflection

April Energy – Patience, Mindfulness & Reflection

Patience is a theme for this month, with things not going quite as fast as what we would like, or maybe have planned; a symptom of mercury in retrograde. 

However, this is a time where slow and steady helps us to maintain our energy and equilibrium.  It’s a time to review, reflect and re-set where you’re at.

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.

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!

Three Elements Of Self Compassion

Three Elements Of Self Compassion

Why is it easier to be compassionate to our friends or a loved when they're going through rough times, than it is to ourselves?

When things go wrong we have a tendency to be harsh, speak badly to ourselves, and get our minds in recurring thought patterns which can take us down the rabbit hole of self doubt, affecting our self worth, and even our health. 

Self compassion is a powerful way of improving our wellbeing.  It's scientifically linked to being happier, more satisfied, grateful and optimistic; while simultaneously reducing the negative, contributing to less anxiety, depression, stress and over perfectionism.

Are you an Introvert of Extrovert?

Are you an Introvert of Extrovert?

Would you consider yourself to be an introvert or extrovert?  There are varying degrees, however most people tend to fall into one category or the other.

However I have been thinking a lot about how deep in our culture the value is put on the extrovert.  In a time where society is bias towards celebrity and large personality, boldness and charisma seem to win out.  Is there little wonder that if you are more inclined towards introversion that you feel just a little bit less than?
