  • Sensational Spring has Sprung

    Ah, the sweet arrival of spring, where the warmth seems to have settled in for a while (fingers crossed). Springtime brings with it the age-old tradition of spring cleaning, a mix of dread and excitement for many. It's the perfect time to declutter, sweep away the cobwebs, and start anew. But hey, why stop at just cleaning your physical space? Let's dive into some mental spring cleaning as well. Let's declutter not just our homes but our minds too. Psychology Today suggests that a clean living space can boost your mood, reduce stress, and even spark creativity. So, roll up your sleeves and get ready to tackle the mess. But where to start? How about creating a strategic plan that suits your unique brain? Are you a burst of energy kind of person or more of a slow and steady cleaner? Find what works for you and dive in. And let's not forget the age-old story of having attachment to decluttering our belongings. A great solution for this is to gather whatever you haven't used for a year, thank them for their service, and ask yourself, "Does this spark joy?" If not, bid it farewell and make room for the new. Now, onto the mind. Let's clear out the self-criticism and negative thoughts that clutter our brains. Catch those pesky thoughts, reframe them, and watch your mindset shift. A fantastic technique for this is to think about a memory that doesn't serve you and rescript it in a way that is your preference. Keep doing this daily, until you truly believe it. And hey, reconnect with your values while you're at it. What are you passionate about? What brings you joy? Reflect on these questions and let them guide your actions. And here is another reminder of one of my favs, Bashar's Formula, to enable you to live your life to the fullest. Maintaining these new mental habits can be tricky, but fear not, there are tools to help. Whether it's sticking notes on your mirror or using a habit-tracking app (This is a helpful blog by Elizabeth Perry for habit-tracking apps). In short, find what works for you and keep that mental space squeaky clean. So, let's embrace the spirit of spring cleaning, both in our homes and in our minds. It's time to declutter, refresh, and start anew. Happy cleaning, both your beautiful body and marvellous mind!

  • Divinely Dazzling Deep Self Care

    Why the ‘deep’ you ask. Well, because I meet too many clients who are a lot better than they used to be, but still don’t seem to give themselves the level of deep care needed to really live the life they are here to live. By deep, I mean going that extra mile in a way that supports lifting the covers on what is going on beneath the surface. Deep care for me used to be  a nice hot bath with candles and a face mask once a week (and don’t get me wrong, this is amazeballs), but now I realise that was only scratching the surface. Of course a good nights sleep, no caffeine or screens before bed, eating well, exercise, saying no, saying yes, treating yourself, being in nature, taking regular breaks, reading and stroking your furry friend is all very important, but I also believe that taking your spiritual self care to another level can actually be totally life changing - and surely that's what we are all here on this peachy planet for right? I see more and more in my own experience, that when I take time out in my day to step up that level of self care, how much more rich and vibrant my life is on the inside and then how I attract much more of what I prefer on the outside. Below are the main things I do to support myself in this way and I have had seriously epic feedback from clients when I have shared any of these tools with them. I am currently writing a Transformational Tools pocket book, which goes into much greater detail, but here are a few key elements to give you a cheeky glimpse: Gratitude – One of the first things I do in the morning before I open my eyes, is think about all the things I am grateful for. I have a number of really effective exercises I use with regard to this, which really set me up for the day ahead. Breathing – I try different exercises, but one of my favourites is 6 3 6 3 breathing. This is breathing in for a count of 6, holding for a count of 3, breathing out for a count of 6, holding for a count of 3. Repeat this 6 times and soon feel like you have taken a chill pill. Affirmations - You can do affirmations until you are blue in the face, but they only actually work when you really ‘feel’ what you are saying in your mind and body. I have found “I am what I am, and that is enough” by Bashar (Darryl Anka) to be particularly effective. He says to say this 3 times in the morning and 3 times in the evening for the best results. Meditation – Dr Joe Dispenza has been a complete game changer for me personally. There are so many Dr Joe meditations on his website and YouTube, but my favourite for beginners is the Morning Meditation, which I do most days and is the perfect starter for 10. Stretching – I have a whole stretching regime which actually only takes me 5 mins each time now as I have it down. One of my favourites is child’s pose which I find really grounding and centring. Mind magic – There is so much I have learnt from many spiritual masters over the years, but one I have found to be extremely valuable, is Michael A Singers heart exercise. Please read ‘The Untethered Soul’ yourself for a fully formed explanation, but basically the idea is to acknowledge that emotions come up through the lower body and we have a choice as to what to do with them when they reach our heart. Of course emotions can be powerful at times, so it can be uncomfortable to keep the emotion in your heart space, since the propensity for most is to allow it to go into the ego mind and make an epic story out of it. I have got into a great habit of doing this exercise as much as I can remember when a negative emotion comes up, and for me, the results are completely transformative. Sometimes there is a real fire in the body, but since it only takes an emotion 90 seconds to go through the body and release naturally (yes I said 90 seconds!), this is the perfect way to let whatever is needed go, and not carry the story on for hours, days, weeks or even years, as so many of us have done. Health – Again, I have many tools as a go to here, but one of the main ones I currently practice daily is Wim Hoff breathing, followed by a cold shower (I can hear your ego arguing the toss from here, but seriously, this is an amazing practice for supporting both mind and body big time). Nature - As soon as I learnt that we ARE nature, I realised how powerful it is to spend as much time as we can in nature. The more I do it, the more I tap into my true essence and feel that sublime stillness which is our innate being. For me, this is the space where there is no confusion or questions, only pure untapped potential. Even if you only have a square of sky to look at, you can still connect deeply, to remember who you truly are. I know we have enough going on in our lives, but I can honestly vouch for all of the above in a way that has been extremely profound for me, so give them a go and I would love to hear your feedback. Have a wonderful rest of the week fellow adventurers!

  • I can't get no...Satisfaction

    Ah, the eternal quest for happiness! But have you ever considered that satisfaction might just be the hidden gem you've been searching for? Happiness is like a fleeting breeze, here one moment and gone the next. Satisfaction, on the other hand, is that trusty old jumper you can't bear to part with - reliable, comforting and always by your side, no matter what life throws your way. We often fall into the trap of thinking that more – more stuff, more excitement, more everything – will bring us lasting happiness. But satisfaction? Now that's a whole different ball game. It's a skill, the fine art of letting go and finding peace in the present moment. So, what exactly is satisfaction? It's about making peace with yourself, finding that inner harmony that doesn't depend on external circumstances. Trust me, I've been there – grappling with self-acceptance, striving for that elusive sense of satisfaction. And you know what? I've come to realize that success doesn't guarantee satisfaction, as I've seen plenty of accomplished folks still yearning for that inner calm. For me, satisfaction has been the secret sauce to any success I've stumbled upon. It's helped me shed old habits, become a better version of myself, and maybe even a better writer (but hey, you be the judge of that!). The biggest mistake we can make is putting off satisfaction for some distant future of success. Satisfaction is a journey that starts right here, right now, no fancy titles or fat bank accounts required. As we navigate the twists and turns of life, let's remember to trust ourselves like we would a loyal friend. Let's ditch those unrealistic standards and embrace our quirks, imperfections and any other stories we are holding about ourselves, that are simply not true. Satisfaction isn't about lazing about in a hammock all day (even though that sounds heavenly to me!) – it's a powerful force for positive change, rooted in self-love and acceptance. So, let's bid farewell to self-criticism, embrace our uniqueness, and stride boldly towards satisfaction. You are remarkable just as you are – own it, embrace it, and let's walk this path of satisfaction together. Peace out and go get 'em superstar!

  • Transition Towards Transformation

    As February strolls in, it looks like those grand New Year's resolutions might be playing hide-and-seek. The gym plans? Well, they seem to have taken a spontaneous vacation. Screen time rules? Ignored faster than yesterday's leftovers. And that idea of a healthier lifestyle? It's starting to sound like a lecture from your overly enthusiastic friend. But fear not! The quest for positive changes is a resilient little warrior. Here are some tips that might just give you a gentle nudge back on the track. They're so obvious they're almost like reminding yourself not to wear socks with sandals – but hey, we all need a friendly reminder sometimes - and I have to admit, socks and sandals are a secret fav of mine behind closed doors ;) Find Your Purpose: Start your journey by figuring out what really tickles your fancy. What makes you jump out of bed (other than the alarm clock)? Think about what makes your heart do a little happy dance. This step ensures that your goals aren't just floating around in the ether, but are tethered to a purpose you can actually relate to. Set Goals that Don't Make You Roll Your Eyes: Once you've nailed down your purpose, set goals that don't sound like punishment. If you're aiming for a healthier you, forget about grueling workouts that make you question your life choices. Opt for cool stuff like regular meditation, becoming a nutrition guru (or at least trying not to eat everything fried), and maybe, just maybe, spending a little less quality time with your screens. Make Choices You Won't Regret (or At Least Ones You Can Laugh About): Changing habits is like trying to breakdance in a potato sack – it takes effort. Your future self can't emerge if you keep tripping over the same old choices. Make intentional choices that make you proud, or at least ones you can chuckle about later. When life throws curveballs, ask yourself: Does this choice align with my purpose, or is it just a detour to the snack aisle? What would my future self, the one with a cape and a green smoothie, do in this situation? Remember, real change is born in the daily choices. So, whether it's the dawn of the year, a day with a "special" label, or just your regular Tuesday, take a pause. Break out of the monotony, make choices that light your fire, and embrace the chance for a fresh start – it's like hitting the reset button on your life, but with fewer technical difficulties. Consider this guide your personal GPS for navigating the whirlwind of your year. Cruise through what sparks joy, set goals that evoke excitement, and consciously make choices that turn your journey into a comedy of triumphs. Because, my friend, every moment is an open mic night for a new beginning, and you're the headliner. Now go out there and drop those resolutions like they're hot to trot!
