I hope you can take this moment to just PAUSE and think of how far you’ve come. The people who see your smiling face on social media posts have no idea what you’ve walked through. They think you’ve had happiness served to you on a silver platter, that life has been easy for you. But that’s not the case, is it? You work hard to get to where you are.  You summoned the courage to walk through your fears, to believe in yourself and trust that there was something worthwhile in you to fight for.   You didn't get to this point by Accident You broke free from that undertow of past conditioning that told you that you weren't good enough, that you didn't matter..…and...

When thinking of trying something new, particularly something that has high stakes to it i.e. pursuing a new career path, moving to a new country, starting a business, entering into a long-term committed relationship, it’s natural to have concerns. This is not a bad thing! In fact, having these concerns means you’re thinking things through, considering all aspects of your decision, and looking into things in greater  detail. The result of this due diligence actually increases the chance of your decision having a positive outcome. But sometimes those concerns gain so much traction that they end up stopping you from taking steps of growth and expansion in your life. You freeze in your tracks, you don’t take the step, and the...

We now know, beyond any doubt, that our Mindset dictates our lives, our thoughts create our Reality, our words hold Power, and every single cell in our bodies is listening and taking instruction from what we think and say. Low-Vibrational Mindset On the left-hand side of the graphic I’ve created, is the Scarcity/Low-vibrational Mindset. These are phrases that are so common in our speech that we think nothing of it but if you look closely, they speak of: resentment, belligerent obligation, hatred, hostility, control/domination, self-centeredness, resistance/push back, dismissal, scarcity, lack of appreciation, self-loathing, worthlessness. Given that thoughts, emotions and words are all vibrations that create our Reality, just look at the building material you’re using to create your life when you engage in them....

Your word holds great power. With it, you take your truth and place it in this world. Therefore, when doing so, consider the wise words that Don Miguel Ruiz wrote in his masterful book The Four Agreements. In particular, 'Be Impeccable with your Word': Pause before speaking. Speak with Integrity Do no Harm   Avoid this Trapdoor The last point is particularly important. If you have spent much of your life feeling like you don’t have a voice, and then you find your voice, the feeling of power can be quite intoxicating. But it’s exactly at this point that many people fall through a trap door. If in using your voice, you harm others because now you’re going to ‘tell it like it is’  and...

After having spent so many years learning, healing and growing, why do you still get triggered by things? Shouldn't you be past that point by now? I'm quite sure this is a question we've all asked at some point on this journey of personal growth, so when I came across this excerpt from Gary Zukav and Linda Francis, I knew I had to share it with you. Here it is: "When someone pushes your buttons, a frightened part of your personality becomes active, and you do things you regret such as damage an important relationship. You do not want to create damage, but a part of your personality that is fearful, angry, jealous, or resentful cares about putting someone in the wrong and...

Many of you have been telling me that you're 'feeling called' to live more authentically, to live with greater purpose. If you are  feeling this as well, let me assure you, you're receiving the message clearly! For those of you tuning into it, it's true, there is a huge shift of consciousness taking place, and I want to gently remind you that there's a reason why you're here at this time. Your beautiful energy, and all that makes you unique, is needed. So, if you're looking to experience a more purposeful year, if you feel you're being called to do something more/different, something that resonates with who you really are, pay attention to that feeling. As soon as you look up and...

PLEASE READ. Here are some important tips for getting through another Covid Winter. Over the past few weeks, so many of you have been sharing with me how tired,  drained and low in spirits you’ve been feeling.

Think Introverts are shy, anxious and won’t amount to anything in this competitive world? Think again! In Geoffrey James's article, he quotes the findings of The International Journal of Multidisciplinary Research and Development stating that in fact, Introverts are Better Leaders than Extroverts. Why?: They think before they speak Are better listeners Deeper thinkers Prefer writing to talking And are calmer in a crisis   An Impressive List According to the Cambridge English Dictionary, an Introvert is someone who is shy, quiet and prefers to spend time alone rather than being with other people.  Vocabulary.com goes further to describe an Introvert as a person who tends to turn inward mentally and feels more energized by time alone.  John Rampton’s impressive...

Is it possible to have a Career that you love, one that's aligned with your Values and Interests? Or is this asking for too much and should you just be happy that you have a job? Each week I hear clients expressing a deep desire to make changes to their professional path: “I just can’t do it any more! It’s sucking the life out of me. I feel like I’m dying inside.” This is not typical workplace frustration. These are actual statements I hear on a regular basis from intelligent, responsible and resilient people, who don’t walk away from commitments easily. And that’s what makes what they’re saying so important. They’re highlighting a deep sense of disconnection between who they are, and...
