Even when you feel stuck magic is happening.

I can totally relate to that ‘stuck’ feeling- let’s think ages- 13, 20, 24, 28, 39 immediately jump to mind. Let’s face it we all get that stuck feeling- but what if getting to that stuck place and feeling it - is actually what gets the magic going. It’s not until we realise that we are stuck that we recognise things need to shift- that's the magical ingredient. By my late 30’s and now with two small children, a lovely…

Don’t Let fear keep you small –because keeping yourself small serves absolutely no-one.

As you know I have been writing these daily thoughts for about 5 weeks now- with the intention of getting the material for my first book- Permission to Shine into shape. As I have been writing these thoughts a pattern is emerging, helping me to shape and form the chapters. I’m sure you have spotted it and I can see that that in the 277 doodles varied repetition occurs. This is never by mistake – I for one need to…

Being you is enough – always was.

I’m arriving into your inbox a little later today (life took over) so I hope you are getting ready to enjoy the weekend. I know I am.  I’m planning to spend some time at The Barefoot Sanctuary at a visiting workshop by Jennifer Cain, so I won't be writing a post for tomorrow- if you want to check it out look here. Then I think some sort of Musical production will be in order. I love Musicals – everything about…

Honour your feelings and your vibration will rise.

I’ve been doing what is known in the business as the inner work for 8 years now- consciously that is – I was of course doing it unconsciously way before that. I guess I just didn’t understand it in the way that I do now. Like I said yesterday though “knowing “is only part of it. Our feelings really are there to help us dance through this matrix called life. No feeling is less valuable than another- none are superior-…

When you are too close to the elephant all you see is grey.   

I’ve know this quote for all of my adult life and it never gets old- but all too often I am reminded that “knowing" something is one thing – putting it into action is quite another.   Lights camera action is never truer than in the creation of our own precious life and if things are looking a bit dull chances are we are just too close to something so amazing that we have lost sight of its magnificence.   We…

You are your own North Star.

The first time I heard the use of the North Star in terms of internal guidance was by the Author and Coach Martha Beck. Her Book Finding Your Own North Star has sold all over the world, and was first published I believe in 2003. By the time I discovered her work in 2012 I was well on my way to becoming a Coach myself having finally began to trust my internal wisdom as my North Star. As I was doing…

Let go of expectation’s and just play

  Usually I write these the day before but Sunday came and went and I well I wanted was to continue to play with my paintbrush and watch Once Upon a Time. When I just play with them- fun things happen. Here is a bit of fun that came out of playing. By just playing I produce things that I know I simply don’t produce when I’m full of expectation. So even though I had pulled this card yesterday it…

Our Shadow side needs to be loved too.

  I think this is one of the messages that the Divine is constantly trying to get us to understand and fully embrace. If you listen to the stories threaded through many spiritual texts – it will say it again and again, and yet somehow we don’t think it's maybe true for us. It’s okay for other people that we love to have flaws – we can overlook and love them regardless of theirs but – crikey not our own.…

When you serve from a full cup everyone wins.

One of the myths about being on this earth that I think causes a lot of our suffering is the belief that we need to be "selfless". So often in my childhood I heard praise for those that were 'selfless til the end' People are admired for it - sainted for it and the thing is like anything in life without all the details of what was going on inside the energetic field of that person at the time -…

Hold your belief’s loosely in your hands.

If I close my eyes I can still see her stillness as she led the session – her name was Sharon – I don’t know her surname, and weirdly when I looked back to my journal I’ve no mention of her – it was more sporadic in reality it seems- but I think of her words frequently and consider her one of my early spiritual guides when I awoke to a new reality in July 2010. Most of the words…
