Getting On With Life

Posted in Uncategorized

A winter-flowering Silver Princess. The Silver Princess Essence helps to clarify life purpose and direction

I’ve felt a strong sense of ‘getting on with things‘ happening for me in the last couple of weeks.

Anyone else feeling an increase in their momentum, a gentle push forward, an encouraging pull from up ahead?

Since deciding to run my first ever dance class for women and taking action to make it happen, like booking a venue and getting help from my lovely designer Lou to put a flyer together (Aahh! Am I really doing this?!!), other aspects of my life have started to flow better too.

It feels as though now that I am truly doing what my heart desires, the universe, my spiritual supporters and my own inner self are rushing forward to support me and keep me on track.

I feel stronger and healthier in my body, I am more peaceful and easy-going and I feel a strong sense that creating this dance class is an important door to step through along my life’s pathway.

I am still loving seeing clients in my work as intuitive counsellor, kinesiologist and flower essence practitioner.  It feels as though there will now be three components to my working life: Individual client work, dance teaching and writing.  They will all fit together and flow and mingle as my fully expressed, uniquely ‘Tricia Woods’ life.

Many of the women I meet in my practice have an unexpressed inner yearning to do something (usually creative or artistic) in their lives that they are afraid to do.  I’ve been afraid to be a dancer, even though it is one of the first words I have always used to describe myself in private.

I return yet again to the way our children are who they are.  They just are!!

Perhaps by looking into our hearts and feeling into what we loved doing or being as a child, we can reveal our true purpose?

Try this as a meditation and see what comes up.  These deep truths really can set us free because when we do what comes naturally, all of life feels that much easier and sweeter.

Love and twirling around for fun,

I Feel Abundant When…

Posted in Create Abundance

Walking with the family along the Cape to Cape track at Canal Rocks, Yallingup

I feel abundant when…

My family and I get outside for a walk in our magnificent surrounds on a cold but sunny winter’s day

I talk to a dear friend on the phone

I dance and sing

I see a rainbow or a butterfly

I step outside each night to look at the beautiful starry sky

I walk in the bush or on a long, quiet beach

I take a fresh batch of biscuits or a cake out of the oven

We receive our spring water delivery for the fortnight

My kids come and give me a hug while I am still waking up in the morning

I am working with a client and feeling so connected with them and the universe

My car is full of fuel

I have just finished cleaning the house

I am preparing to have guests come and stay with us for the weekend

I bring my awareness to the light shining brightly in the centre of my being

I hear my children giggling in delight together

I smell my favourite flower, a rose in perfect bloom

I give thanks for my magically blessed life

Namaste

Tricia

If I Weren’t Afraid I Would…

A rainbow after the storm in Dunsborough June 2012

Like my rainbow? I love how it looks like the rainbow is supporting the grey cloud and the blue sky is protected underneath. Here’s another…

Beautiful rainbow colours

Well, the second half of the year has begun,  and don’t underestimate the power of June becoming July to jump-start your goals for the remainder of 2012.

With the solstices (winter down here in the southern hemisphere and summer up there where the majority of humans dwell), occurring the week before last, comes a New Year feeling in terms of the energetic influence they bring.

Here in Australia we are welcoming the gradual lengthening of our daylight hours and the accompanying increases in energy, motivation and productivity, in place until our summer solstice in December.  Hey, I need some of this because June turned out to be just as slow and unproductive for me as May was.

Although I know we need that time of turning inward, rest, reflection, processing and planning, I just don’t enjoy it.

So with that early winter shedding of the old and outdated, over and done with, I’m feeling ready to move forward and create!

This is a wonderful time of the year to begin new projects, revive old ones that need joojshing and move ahead with your life in general.

I recently confessed to a friend that what I really want to do now is create a dance class for women in my local community.  Wow!  That was easier than I thought.

I’ve had the dream of dancing with other women in a style of my own creation to healing music, for a couple of years.  Sharing it with my dear friend felt a little scary, but with her loving encouragement plus allowing myself to sit with it for a week, it feels completely natural to be writing about it here now.

It’s reminded me of an exercise the amazing Sonia Choquette gets people to take themselves through when they are in need of remembering what they love the most in life and what they would like to do with their lives.

She says, “Ask yourself this question: If I weren’t afraid I would….? and fill in the blank”

Sonia recommends doing this over and over again to see what comes up into your mind most strongly and most often.

For me, the answer most consistently and actually quite patiently as been “dance”.

So, it feels as though the time is right for me to move forward with this dream and make it happen.  I’m very nervous and unsure about how it will unfold, but I’m feeling ready to explore, trust and open up to whatever comes.

Perhaps you are ready to pose this question to yourself?

Enjoy the lengthening days!

Love and laughter,

Tricia
