How To Empower Yourself With Conscious Choice

How To Empower Yourself With Conscious Choice

You always have the power to change your world. 

Life is a constant evolution, and you’re continually forming decisions and choices, even if you’re not fully aware of it.

Conscious choice keeps you moving forward, and helps you be the captain of your own ship.  While you can leave it up to life to create change for you, almost like a drift with the wind approach, in the hope that it will take you where you want to go.  You also have the power to steer it in the direction to create positive movement.

What were your thoughts like today?

What were your thoughts like today?

“Whatever you frequently think or ponder, that will become the inclination of your mind.” ~Buddha

What were your thoughts like today?

What kind of mood did you create for yourself?

I invite you to consider this for a moment before continuing to read on.  

Your mind continually tends to wander down well-worn paths, and the more you go down them, the more habitual the patterning can become.

The brain is wired for a negativity bias, and it does that to keep us safe (which we need), but is it also keeping you in a routine of negative thinking?

Uncover Your Purpose

Uncover Your Purpose

There was a time in my life not so long ago, that I felt really stuck.  I’d come through illness, a broken down relationship, and was in a career that didn’t feed my soul, or where I was at now in my life.

The problem was I didn’t really know where to go next. I knew things were stagnant, but I had no idea of the way forward or which way to go.

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?

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?

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?

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.

Are You Living With Intention?

Are You Living With Intention?

Your intention is behind everything you do and creates your reality.  Whether your intention is purposeful, or you're not aware of actually having one, either way, it will lead to an outcome. 

While there's value in going with the flow, it's also important to understand that there is an intention in every circumstance whether you realize it or not.

When you head out in your day are you doing it with an intention to meet it with joy, or are you unconsciously seeing life as working against you, before you even walk out the door?

May Energies - Expansive Realignment

May Energies - Expansive Realignment

These last months we have been pushed by the universe, and it’s continuing to move us along; we need to follow our instincts and the signs we are receiving.

It’s been happening on mass to a lot of people, so you may be feeling like it’s been heavy going.

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.

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.

Opening Up To Your Limitless Creativity

Opening Up To Your Limitless Creativity

Through reframing your thoughts, mindfulness practices, and allowing space for expansion you can enhance your creativity.

Do you think you are creative, or feel a little bit inept in this area?

We are all innately creative even if we don’t think we are.  Yet how do we tap into this and uncover what lies beneath?

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?

Keeping Your Why Alive!

Keeping Your Why Alive!

Everything you have in your life is something you have chosen.

Be it your work, your relationships, your hobbies, and even your daily habits.  However, are these things you've actively chosen consciously, or have they evolved on an unconcious level?

It's important to remember that you have choice at every moment, whether that be to choose the same thing, or if it has evolved to choose again for a new reason, or to choose something completely different; recognising it’s not about the “what”, or the “how", but about your “why”.

Don't Give Up

Don't Give Up

This image really struck a chord with me this week.  Many of us put such a brave face on for the outside world, and maybe it's only those close to us who really see the effort that goes into achieving our successes. 

This can be in any area when we are working towards our goals.  Perhaps you have started on a new health and fitness plan, or building a new business, working towards improving the relationships in your life, or wanting to change careers.  Whenever we have dreams, it's often the challenges that help us learn the most, but there are also times when we may feel overwhelmed by all that is required to get there.

What Food Would Your Body Choose?

I would like to put this question to all of you, and although I can't necessarily hear your answers, I would love you to open up this line of enquiry for yourself personally.  If there was no right or wrong, no judgement over any particular food choice, what would your body choose?

Progress Not Perfection

Progress Not Perfection

These words seem to keep coming at me again and again at the moment, and ones I am very much keeping in mind as new challenges are thrown at me from every angle in the past few weeks. 

Being a perfectionist at heart, as I know many of us can be, we want to get things "right" at all times, to the point where sometimes we don't attempt things or let fears get in the way of us moving forward.
