A Guided Audio to Bring You Home to You

Posted in Live Your Passions

When I cast my mind back to when my children were a lot younger and I was a lot more tense and stressed, I remember often feeling that whatever I was doing, it wasn’t what I wanted to be doing.

My internal dialogue went something like this:

I don’t want to be hanging washing right now.  I wish I didn’t have so much washing to do. What’s that noise?  Where is that little one? Oh no, she’s gotten into the kitchen cupboard. Why do I always get interrupted?  I’d better go inside and stop her from pulling everything out.  Oh, look at the time, it’s almost kindy pick-up time and I needed to get to the shops….”

And so on and so on.

I felt that I was always running from one task to another and not achieving very much.  A few different stories were running regarding how I was evaluating my own worth as a mother and housekeeper and then there was this whole other perspective to do with thinking things simply should be different than what they were.

I wanted to do things methodically, calmly, within my time frames and with no interruptions.  That was how it worked much of the time I was in the paid workforce.  Why wasn’t it happening now?

For many of us, motherhood is the time of our lives we’ve dreamed of being in.

It was for me and then, although I completely adored my children and found being with them mostly enjoyable and fulfilling, there was another part of me that found it hard to be fully present with them and embrace the unpredictability and’ busy-work’ they brought to my life.

Also, what I didn’t understand about myself in those early years was that I still needed to make time for myself every day and to learn more about how I could seek out small pockets of time to do the things that made my heart sing.

What ended up saving my sanity was meditation.  I made the time to sit and meditate for thirty minutes each day while my children had their afternoon sleep.  It wasn’t easy to do at first but the results were so immediate that I knew it was worth sticking with.

I’ve created a little ten minute audio for you this week to guide you into a deeper awareness of what it is to be fully present with yourself and to help you define a passion or natural talent that lifts your spirits and may end up leading you into your next career or hobby.

I absolutely love helping women get to know themselves and their natural talents and passions better. Take a look here to learn more…

Four Steps to Coaching Yourself to Greatness

Posted in Self-Care and Self-Healing

You know you’re being called to step up and into the next brilliant chapter of your life right now don’t you?

Anything holding you back?

If you’re like me and have been on the so-called, “spiritual development” pathway for a few years, I’ll bet you’re completely fed up with overcoming yet another self-limiting belief, squashing those pesky self-sabotaging behaviours and uncovering those ancient fears that pop up every time you feel like you’re finally making progress.

We’re full of it aren’t we?

Well yes, and no. Yes because we are complex, flawed and multi-layered and no because we are amazing, resilient, here for a reason and it really is all good.

What’s required here is a shift of mindset around what it truly means to be a moderately enlightened person who has a great life, lots of friends, fun times, good health and laughter.

I’ve made some rapid and much appreciated leaps forward within my inner landscape these past few weeks and then more stuff rises to the surface right?

My dreams have been showing me a glitch that needs fixing before I can move ahead properly into my expanded business, my book being published and my face being on the cover of…well maybe not that.  But anyway, in these dreams, I’m attending events with my current mentors, having a great old time and then my children appear in the dream and they’re all thin and undernourished, or a washing line appears in front of me and I begin unpegging the washing. Strange? Well not really.

What I feel these dreams were revealing was a belief at the unconscious level that motherhood and career are incompatible.  I say ‘were’ because this morning on my beach walk I clarified it and transformed it. I used a technique created by the wonderful Dee Wallace where you simply claim out loud from your ‘I AM’ presence (higher self), whatever it is you would like to create.

I said something like this:

“I claim from my I AM presence in this moment of now that I am fully balanced, free, joyful and successful in my roles of mother, teacher, healer, wife, daughter, friend and in myself free of all roles. And so it is. Thank you”.  

Sound easy enough?

Here are some steps to get you there:

  1. Begin with an attitude of loving kindness for yourself. Try Louise Hay’s mirror exercise where you look into a mirror first thing in the morning and gazing into your eyes say, “I love you your name” at least three times. Keep this up until it feels true and then do it some more.
  2. Get to know what you really want to create in your life from what you most love doing.
  3. Know yourself well enough to be able to read your own dreams, listen to insights from within while meditating, or use journalling, painting, singing, dancing or walking as self-exploration tools.
  4. Understand and accept that you are the most powerful person in your life and if you want to make changes in how you live, then simply begin claiming want you want to create as a reality in the present moment.

That’s it for now lovely people. And remember, I love helping women get to know themselves better and deeper because I know it leads to a happier life.  Consider booking a phone or in-person coaching and healing session with me and you’ll see quick results.

Activate Your Creativity and Stop the Yearning

Posted in Live Your Passions

We yearn for things, don’t we?

That house: “If I lived there, I’d be truly happy

Her hair/figure/face: “If I looked like that, I wouldn’t have a care in the world

A partner more…you know, just better than the one we have: “If my partner was more romantic/caring/wealthy/sensitive/sexy/all of the above, I would be so much more content

But what if, now stay with me here…What if all of these imagined ideal people, things and scenarios were just signposts, metaphors if you like, for what’s missing within ourselves?

What would that mean?

Let me put it to you like this:

You don’t need much of what you think you need to be happy in this life of yours

The things you desire, want and yearn for are simply invitations to look within yourself and create a life more authentically you from the inside out.

Here’s some evidence: I’m not sure if you’ve noticed this, but how many times have you gotten that new yearned-for thing and then after a fairly brief period of elation, joy and fulfillment, you go back to feeling the way you did before you had it and you begin yearning for something else?

It’s happened to me many times and I’m telling you, it’s better to look within and discover ways you can creatively express yourself in the world.

Find that fulfillment and enjoyment in your work, creative pursuits or in being of service to others rather than turning your attention to the next new purchase, relationship or holiday.

Enough with the writing…

Gift yourself ten minutes now to listen to this very nice guided meditation for activating your creative centre; your sacral chakra.  I recorded it just the other day down by the ocean and the sounds of the water are quite beautiful.

It’s a New You

Posted in Trust The Universe

The rain is falling.  Autumn has settled in and before we know it there’ll be a fire in the hearth and extra blankets on the beds.  The seasons, as they play out in the natural world, bring us vivid demonstrations of change, renewal, stagnation, decay and growth.

As I see the world outside my window change, I also feel I must be changing too.

Nothing stays the same, everything must change

How do you handle change?

Do you seek it out eagerly with an optimistic grin?

Do you pretend it’s not happening and drag your heels every step of the way?

I guess we all do a bit of both.  Some change we beckon with open arms, other change (when it’s not what we’d expected), requires a little more time and adjustment before we fully accept it.

The change of season encourages us to get out different clothes, maybe buy some new things, and clean out and organise our wardrobe.  We exercise, eat and entertain ourselves differently from Winter to Summer.  It’s fun right? Nice to mix it up, have a change?

As a result of my passion for being connected to nature, I respond to the changing seasons with excitement and wonder.  The first rains turn the brown earth into a barely-there green tinge and then a lush carpet of grass for our local kangaroos to feast on.  Locals who depend on rain for their water supply clap their hands together in glee and we town dwellers enjoy turning our garden reticulation off for a few months.

So, whether you’re in northern, southern or tropical climes, nature shifts and aspects of your life shift with it.

For me, noticing nature helps me to be in deeper contact with myself.  I’m calm when I’m outdoors and I gain lots of insights and inspiration as I walk and sit among the trees or upon the granite rocks by the water.

Nature heals us and brings us home to ourselves.

And nature isn’t just what’s here on Earth.  The natural world includes our moon, the sun and all the stars and planets. The vast cosmos influences and changes us day by day, year by year.

The two eclipses we’ve just witnessed created some beautiful energetic openings for us to release the past (yes, again) and shift anew into the lives we’ve dreamed of and planned for over the last few years.  Each morning since the lunar eclipse on Saturday night I’ve woken from dreams that have flushed out old fears, pulled together past and current relationships and revealed remnants of deeply held insecurities.

I’ve found it hard to stick with my meditation routine and have felt the need to clear out cupboards, put together the photo book from our holiday to Spain and take a break from my work schedule.

Early this morning I went for a grey-skied walk to the ocean and sat with shoes off on a rocky outcrop above the water.  I chanted the Om mantra, stared at the sea and drank in the clear, cool air.  And I felt new.

You’re new too, just take a moment to pause and feel it.
