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?

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?

A Year Of Possibility

A Year Of Possibility

There is something magical about a new year,

 A fresh energy and a blank canvas of possibility, with a hopefulness in the air, like everything is new.

There’s a lightness, where we feel we can put aside any heaviness of the year that’s past and start again.

In actuality, it is just another day, however we step into a new mindset, like we can let go of anything that has taken place in the previous year, into a new beginning.

I’ve been reflecting on this, as I was thinking how do we allow that lightness and sense of possibility to move throughout the rest of the year; not just on the first few days of January, that sometimes gets lost when we get back into work and the day to day normalcy of life?

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?

“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.

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?

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.

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.
