Gentle Reminders

Gentle reminders come in mysterious ways and in all shapes and sizes!

Last night I lay awake in bed wondering and ruminating (eekkk!) about the day and the events that had taken place.

It was late and I was tired. I wanted to fall asleep, but instead was tossing and turning. Dozing off just wasn’t happening and the more focus I gave to not sleeping, the more elusive sleep became.

Red wine and ruminating

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog about the rollercoaster of life and ‘lingering in a problem’ and several of the comments I received in relation to ‘lingering’ referred to ‘lingering too long’ which leads to ‘ruminating’.

So today, let me tell you a story about ruminating...

Once upon a time, a long time ago... which is how all good stories start ;),

Happiness 101.1

Who doesn’t want happiness?

Apparently the number one human goal is to be happy.

Authenticity 101

The other night I taught a Law of Attraction workshop on authenticity and self-love. One of my parting lines to the participants was to make “I believe in myself” their daily mantra.

YOU matter!

Sometimes when it feels like the world is in chaos, it is easy to forget to look within and take care of number 1. You matter, and even though helping others and sharing grace and love outwardly is a beautiful part of the human experience, sharing it internally is essential and helps to balance the flow of energy, prevent depletion or imbalance, and as an added bonus, gives that outward expression extra substance.

Blessings in Disguise

Sometimes, in retrospect, it’s easy to see that actually it’s not the actual event that is important but the reason behind it happening. Reigniting the creativity within by committing to following through for a whole set of different reasons, can be a blessing in disguise!

The Ageing Game & Mortality Motivation

Getting to certain ages comes with its own set of complexities! Whether it’s 20 or 30 or 40 or 50 or 60 or 70 or 80 or... there seems to be stigmas attached (mostly self-imposed) that can blemish the experience.

The Love Wrap

This morning in my meditation I felt the wrap of love. Initially it started with an image of my blue portal painting (the one above) and then waved into a pink haven. I often think in colours especially when I’m meditating. I think this is called synesthesia - which may make me a synesthete?! Regardless of that - this is what happened for me this morning.

Dreams in Action

Often when I teach I’ll share a story and then invite my audience to relate and connect back. I find this often provides a segue for deeper and more relevant understanding and hope that’s what happens here too… Perhaps as you read you might like to consider your beliefs and dreams and how you follow them in your daily life.
