The one thing holding you back May 15 2016, 0 Comments

I work with women who are seeking more. Not in a "I'll never be happy" kind of way but in an intuitive way. They hear a little voice inside, underneath the crap our ego feeds us that we are stuck with our lot in life, a voice that whispers "come in this direction, there is another way." Perhaps this is you? These women seek a different life, a happier life for themselves. Perhaps less stress, less overwhelm, less anxiety. More calm, deep inner peace, ease, flow, more soul, connection, presence, a greater purpose, more joy and passion. 

I understand. I totally get this. I've been there before. I know that voice all too well, the one that says there is something else, there is more out there, I am capable of more. The inner voice, the knowing inside that believes in magic and the limitless opportunities in life that open up once we are ready to believe and receive. That voice has become my friend, it continues to guide me on my journey. To read the full blog post click here.


The life-changing magic of the Desire Map April 10 2016, 0 Comments

For those of you who know me or have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I'm a HUGE fan of the Desire Map. 

There is so much power in declaring your desires and setting intentions. Something magical happens when we get crystal clear on what we want and then go after it. Do you know what I'm talking about? Read the full blog post here.


The art of saying no April 01 2016, 0 Comments

 

Setting boundaries and learning to say no is a huge topic! It's something that I'm fascinated by and has been coming up for me for sometime. I used to be a serial 'good girl' which equated to being a 'yes girl' and a 'put-myself-last-girl.' I used to take pride in my ability to do it all! But my inability to say no has led me to serious burnout on a number of occasions. Leaving me wondering when will I ever learn? While I'm much better than I have been in the past I still revert back to old ways at times and need to keep myself in check. To read the full blog post click here.


What I want for you in 2016 January 01 2016, 0 Comments

 

Happy New Year! As we enter the first day of 2016, I feel inspired, full of hope and possibility. How about you? Perhaps you're not feeling this way at all. Regardless of how you're feeling and whether you like it or not, there is so much talk of New Year's resolutions and goals at this time. We can easily get into thinking we aren't enough, didn't achieve enough and need to be someone or do something totally different to make the new year better. Or worse still, if you're feeling in a funk and everyone else is all up beat and excited, it can only make you feel worse. Start where you are. Sit with whatever you're feeling today. But know this.

This is what I want for you this year…

Less stress. Less overwhelm. Less anxiety. Less worry.

Less exhaustion. Less burnout. Fewer meltdowns.

Less numbing of emotions, mindless boozing and T. V.

Less procrastinating. Less self-doubt. Less self-sabotage.

How to utilise the energy of the New Year December 13 2015, 0 Comments

 

I absolutely LOVE this time of year, the festive season vibes, the promises and excitement of a new year ahead.  Time to hit reset. Clear the slate. Start fresh. Take the valuable lessons from the current year and let go of anything that no longer serves you. The year's end is the perfect time to take a moment to stop and reflect on the year that has been. The highs, the lows and everything in between! Setting sacred time aside to consider and celebrate your achievements is so important. Spending time dreaming, visualising and planning the next twelve months is equally as important to ensure you have a road map to get where you wish to go. To read the full blog post click here.

Can procrastination be a form of intuition? June 26 2015, 0 Comments

As most of you will know if you follow me on social media or read my blog, I'm a huge fan of Danielle LaPorte and the Desire Map. At the start of the year I ordered her Truth Bomb card deck, which is AMAZING! When it arrived I decided to pull a card out to place on my desk.

The card I pulled got me thinking.

The first reason this card got me so intrigued was that starting my own business has really shone a light on my procrastination habits. I've analysed the why I procrastinate, where it might come from, what is behind it and ways to overcome it until the cows have come home! I'm at peace with the fact that I still procrastinate much more than I would like. I realise it's a deeply ingrained habit that will take time and patience to re-wire and change. I'm ok with that. Acceptance and compassion have become my friends when it comes to my procrastination habits. Read the full blog post here.


How to get a bikini body this Summer (Hint: it's not how you think!) January 26 2015, 0 Comments

 

Today on the blog is a very special guest post by Melissa Jeffcott - a life coach, mother of three and a beautiful soul! I met Mel at the Gabby Bernstein event in Melbourne a few weeks ago and was instantly drawn to her energy. I went home and checked out Mel's blog and was having a good old giggle at her honesty, authenticity and awesome sense of humour. Given it's still January and we are on the topics of resolutions, goals and intention for 2015 I thought this post would be perfect to share! In the media and in real life, women perhaps more than ever face the pressure of striving to achieve that perfect bikini body for Summer. Body image is such an important topic and Mel hits the nail on the head with her post. This is a read not just for mothers and those over 40. Mel's message is an important one for ALL women. I couldn't have conveyed the message better myself if I tried! To read the full blog post click here.

 


Goals with Soul (Part 3 in the series) January 19 2015, 0 Comments

 

It's mid January. The New Year. 2015. Predicted by some to be a very prosperous, abundant year where the hard work of previous years comes into fruition. In part three of this blog series I want to introduce you to an incredible ideology that will underpin your goal setting and resolutions for the year. It flips the idea of goal setting and resolutions on its head. It's real. Raw. It's a humanised way of looking at intention setting in a different light. It makes so much sense. I believe it also sheds a whole lotta light on why 92% of us don't achieve our New Year's resolutions. So who is the creator? To read the full blog post click here.


Do you suck at sticking to New Year's resolutions? (Part 2) January 06 2015, 2 Comments

I'm sitting here wearing next to nothing as it's so so hot in Melbourne today. I'm in flow so I'm going to keep writing in what will become a three part blog series. Given 2015 is now in full swing I got to thinking while blogging about resolutions what are some of my goals, intentions and resolutions for this new year? I better heed my own advice and make them obvious and known (remember it helps with accountability). I also started to think more about how meaningful my goals are and how passionate I am about making them more than just resolutions, but part of my life. My theory is the more meaningful something is to you the more likely you are to achieve it. This was something that was also ingrained in me in my studies as an occupational therapist. Participation in meaningful activities has been proven to lead to better health outcomes. To read the full blog post click here.


Do you suck at sticking to New Year's resolutions? (Part 1) January 04 2015, 1 Comment

 

I’ve always enjoyed the New Year period. I love taking the time to reflect on the year that has passed, my challenges and achievements and how far I’ve come. Personal development has always been a passion of mine. You’re more likely to see The Power of Now, The Road Less Travelled or Buddhism for Busy People in my hands than Fifty Shades of Grey or The Lord of the Rings (that's not to say I wouldn't enjoy those books). I can’t get enough of self-help books and find them fascinating! I could literally spend hours in the self-help section of book stores! I'm also a Piscean who loves nothing more than to day dream! So for me, the ringing in of a New Year is the perfect opportunity to set new goals, intentions or resolutions if you like. It's also great to pull out the previous year's resolutions to see how you fared. To read the full blog post click here.
