A Moment of Divinity

In the meantime The Book Permission to Shine is still very much underway. Thank you for all the nudges and check ins - you are the best accountability buddies ever! I am writing to you today  because of two things- For those of you who loved the Good Vibrations radio show but couldn't…

You are The Star, The Director and The Producer of your own movie.

Happy Friday to you dear barefoot readers. When my kids were younger we used to call it 'Friday night movie night' - so as this will be my last post for a while- this card feels like the best thought to go out with. I've have always loved the movies. I get so many messages from them -I get many of those 'A Ha' moments. Sometimes instantly other times days weeks or even months later. But what if I told that in our every…

You are a miracle of gravity.

I wrote this poem some time ago and for todays post I wanted to share it with you once more- we all have a life with purpose to be told. My hope is in sharing mine you will remember to weave your life even brighter than you thought possible. I've recorded it here on Soundcloud and its in text below- So tomorrow will be my last daily post for a little while. I have written consistently now for over 2 months…

Its vital to enjoy your resting place.

Yesterday I wrote about doubt and the view our Divine self can see and it reminded me of another blog post I had written some time ago. As as it happens I later drew a flower about it.  So I thought for those of you who are new to the blog who won't have seen it and as a follow on to yesterday today was the perfect time for this one- I really do value the resting place.. One day as…

If you could see what I could see you would smile too.

The I that I referred to in this flower when I drew it some time ago was not the 'Bernie I'- it was your 'eternal I'. Now for sure as a Soul Coach one of my abilities if you like is that I can see the beauty of the Soul, and it really does make me smile when someone I'm working with gets a glimpse of that perspective too. That's the magic of the coaching process but ultimately as a writer I want people…

Where could your barefoot ambition take you?  

If you have ever wondered where my brand name Barefoot Ambition comes from - wonder no more. Today I'll share the story of where it began. On the 5th July 2010 – I got up extra early from the holiday apartment of a hotel complex called the The Priory Bay Hotel on the Isle of Wight – We had gone for a family wedding and  extended our stay to a family holiday. It was 2 days after the wedding and as I…

Don’t be afraid of who you are.

As I sit down this morning to work on the book I came across this post from a couple of years ago - it felt so good to do the exercise and so wanted to share it with you again today too. Before I do that I want to say a huge thanks to Anne Shivas for shining her light brightly through her poetry Whit Grace in last nights Barefoot Talk. We recorded  the event on Facebook live so if…

Your Gremlins don’t live in nature.

For years thousands upon thousands of holiday makers find their way to the coastal town of North Berwick where I live. It's as if the sea pulls them here. It certainly pulled me here 13 years ago. One thing I discovered early on in my time living by the sea is that I always felt better after time out in nature. It was here where I took up running and sea swimming and both of things things have played a…

Connect to your body stand in your power.

Yesterday I wrote about how we waste our creative energy unknowingly and you may remember I asked you to keep in mind the word 'bluetooth'. Bluetooth is a wonderful thing. Over the last couple of months I find my self using it daily to send the flower photos from my phone to my mac so that you see the image as you do. Im sure you know how Bluetooth works, but essentially in the process I open my mac and…

Don’t waste creative energy on self -doubt.

Creative energy is something that we all have in equal measure. Sure it pours out in different ways and looks different person by person but essentially if we are all connected to Source which I have Faith that we are- we all have access to the exact same amount of energy. So why do some people get described as so creative whilst others don’t? There are layers to this with other factors at play. i.e. in how we absorb energy…
