What is getting in your way?

What is getting in your way? (And why are you allowing it to stop you?) When I ask about barriers, distractions, blocks, or obstacles, I receive a variety of reasons and answers. Usually, they include negative belief systems, based off of what was learned at an early age (‘That’s all you’re getting’, ‘That won’t work’, ‘You don’t have the skills/knowledge/experience’, … Read More

How do you respond to fear?

Fear is one of my favorite topics. Ever. I love the ways in which people respond when you touch upon fear. Usually, they either dive into the conversation, happy for an outlet or opportunity to process and understand, or clam up, close off, sink down. We all have fears, and there will always be a degree of fear in our … Read More

Living as a Masterpiece

Living as a Masterpiece (with a little guidance from Prince and The King) I have written before about Prince and Mastery. I use him as an example of someone who has immersed himself in his art, his craft, his purpose for living. His purpose was very clear and he lived it. I attended an Elvis Tribute act earlier this week … Read More

Is ‘Loyalty’ Delaying your Evolution?

As we move towards the end of the year, and a feeling of ending or closure, we naturally feel unsettled as we face the unknown. Because endings are really about beginnings. And both can be scary, even when we have been asking for (begging, demanding) change! The transition period is the sticky part. As we let go and resolve layers … Read More

There’s no place like home!

Ruby Slippers, or the Yellow Brick Road? This post has been in my draft folder for months. I have held back on getting involved in the political debate for many reasons. I want you to know that the purpose of this post is not to convince you which candidate is best or worst. It is about recognising what is being … Read More

Let life colour your existence <3

Let life colour your existence <3 Traditional teachings state that we give and take energy, and that we feel most uncomfortable as we take on ‘other people’s stuff’. I used to believe this too, and while it helped me to imagine releasing another’s energy as I set new boundaries, nothing fully resolved as a result. I believe that right now … Read More

What do you permit in the name of Patience?

How much ‘patience’ do you employ before you hit your breaking point? I think that most of us mistakingly allow others to take advantage of us under the guise of patience. Over the years I have repeatedly asked or begged for patience, wanting to feel calm and compassionate in the presence of abuse. I asked for patience with people who … Read More

Are you creating pain, just to feel the relief that follows?

I used to get migraines that medicine would only temporarily dampen, and they would last days at a time. One day, I learned a trick… I realised that eating wasabi peas made my head hurt less. So did chilli, curries, or anything that was painfully spicy. The body has an amazing way of helping us cope. When we feel pain, … Read More

Self-Employed: Strong Suggestions

Self-Employed: Strong Suggestions from my trial and error approach I left my job 4 years ago. I know! FOUR YEARS! I can’t believe it either! The past 4 years have included many highs and lows, and everything in between. I get asked a lot about how I did it, how it has changed my life, and advice on what to … Read More

How can you ensure success?

How can you ensure success? I am often asked about what it takes to be successful, about the belief systems that hinder our success, and what we can do to ensure success. The best answer I’ve got: Immerse yourself in your craft, simply become so amazing at it that it becomes a part of you, and as you live and breathe it, … Read More
