Will you make this a GOOD Friday?

Gloria Gaynor has just given me a beautiful ah ha. Thank you Gloria! It feels as if her magic song was literally popped right into my head, by The Universe, after a Dog walk on the beach this morning. As I stood at the sink getting ready to sit down with my cuppa to write this blog, I thought about what I bring to the table, and what I aspire to continue to bring to the table, and hey presto…

A Conscious Journey through Your Body,

It's so easy to be SO busy in our mind's, that we do not feel the consciousness within our bodies, yet if we are to THRIVE as human beings, in this fast moving world, I believe it is essential that we make the time to be still and journey inwards. Over the last few years I have been listening to guided meditations, which have helped me massively to heal and to stay more present. In my paid coaching sessions and…

“All the world is made of faith and trust and pixie dust”

These are the words of J M Barrie, and they made me smile as I pulled this post together and immediately I knew I had found the perfect title for a post on TRUST. Where in the world would we be without it? A few months ago I had the opportunity to meet Marianne Williamson, who in my view is one of the most inspirational human spiritual teachers I have yet to come across. For those of you who read…

Are you ready to fully commit to loving your inner child?

So 2015 is here. I have, I think gotten over the annual habitual mental block of moving onto a new digit and 2015 is now rolling of the tongue and flowing from the pen quite easily. For me and my family, it marks a decade of living in East Lothian. New Year started with the most amazing Looney dook yet on New Year's Day here in North Berwick which was duly celebrated whilst sipping an Ailey Mae's Raw Hot Chocolate…

Giving thanks this Christmas..

Sitting at my desk on this last day of the school term, and the last day that The Barefoot Sanctuary will officially be open for this year, it feels a bit surreal. This time last year we were just applying for planning permission to change the use of the then building. How it would look and feel was still very much a mystery to me. Sure I had my sheet of paper from 3 years previously but really that was…

Let it shine

Last weekend I realised I had picked up a cold bug and I ended up being totally wiped out by it. It took quite a few days and a genuine releasing of any expectations or deadlines as to when I would feel better, for it to actually pass a full week later. Part of this process, meant abandoning last weeks blog because, every time I began to write, something started to feel off and it brought an awareness to one…

Lean in to boost your resilience.

A few days ago we had the windows cleaned at The Barefoot Sanctuary. I remember saying to James who takes care of that for us, that there were a lot of spiders webs out there. They were in for a rude awakening. This morning, something caught the corner of my eye as I was looking out up, to The Law (local hill) from the coaching room window. A very healthy spider was gathering breakfast from a very large, very much…

It’s only in our conditioned minds, that we are actually different.

This week has been very moving for me. I revisited feelings of my childhood and let some more of my baggage go, I'm in the healing business after all, and in the process I opened my heart to fresher truths. All of this was made possible, by following an inspired idea to put on a Christmas shopping experience at The Barefoot Sanctuary. To give this a bit more perspective, which will also involve what seems like a digression, I want…

It’s right inside of you…

The week I have been playing with soundcloud again, with the desire to share with you all, a very simple, but effective way of tapping into your internal body compass. This exercise is one I have shared with clients either in a 1-1 session or at workshops and Talks and today I gift it to you. Call it an early Christmas present.:) You are most welcome. For the good of all, the more people tapping into this inner compass the…

Have you ever stopped to consider, the flip side?

I remembered something very crucial this week, courtesy of one of my amazing clients. Being our own worst enemy takes tons of work, it's not a walk in the park. I came to realise 5 years ago that I was my own worst enemy, and it has played a massive part in leading me to be a Coach whose central focus, is to help people Love and Cherish the Skin they are in, today. This session in particular though, reminded…
