You step into your dark so that your light can shine.

  Last night I took our dogs out down to the beach for a late walk. As it turned out it was one of those magical still nights that we haven’t had for a while due to the fact that The Beast from the East extended its holiday here. Sometimes it takes a while for us to notice the calm -we get so used the storm -we still expect it.  As we moved across the golf course away from the…

The mission is to not to impress but to express!

For any aspiring creative this maybe one of the most freeing and important reminders. Why? Plain and simply so that we can get out of our own way and express who we are. This will be old news to many but it was new to me. I only realised this about 30minutes into my first visit to the Art Therapy room at The Priory. I was about 2 weeks into my stay there when I found out there was even…

What other people think of you is none of your business.

    I remember vividly the first time I heard these words. It was about week 3 into my stay at the Glasgow Priory and I was spending a couple of hours back in the real world in Southside Glasgow with one of the staff members.  She was to be one of my early spiritual guides in the new phase of my human existence. We were sitting having a cup of tea in a little café and we might have…

Celebrate Your Uniqueness Every Single Day

I usually write these posts the day before, but yesterday I was keep really busy pulling the flower cards for the Reclaim Your Summit offering that I knew I would have to be up early to do this post in time for the 11am deadline, bearing in mind I am going to a yoga fundraiser before that for Tori Chalmers. one of my guests on the Good Vibrations Radio Show. (You can support her too by clicking on the link.) It felt…

Always choose the better feeling option.

Today an Interview that I did with the lovely Maja Karllson went out. This is part of the Summit Maja has organised titled Reclaim your life. I relate to this so much because I don't have to think back too many years to remember what it felt like to feel disconnected from a sense of wellbeing. When I started to look back at my life and reflect deep down I knew I had felt very connected as a young child so…

Don’t be limited by your thoughts.

Before we get int todays post I've a quick heads up because apparently I feature in day 4 of the Reclaim your life Summit which is today! So to watch it and the rest of the speakers remember to sign up below... As I looked though the flower messages today I had already decided what I wanted to write about. The interesting thing is I didn't have the thought from my deck that matched it. I was looking for one…

What if nothing has actually gone wrong?

  Funny that this has popped up as I was just thinking about it and was talking with a client about it today. What if nothing has actually gone wrong- that every single moment in our lives has been for a reason. Like every moment represents a unique piece of the puzzle. Please don’t misunderstand me this doesn’t mean that I am dismissing all painful situations as necessary in a suck it up kind of thing – no I’m saying…

Nothing in this life is permanent.

  The thought I had before I went to pick todays title from my flower deck was this. I want to be able to write about what’s real today- because that’s where I’m at, and all feelings are valid. What’s real for me today is I feel rubbish – I have a really sore tummy after a touch of food poisoning (one word- Clams) and so I feel pretty lethargic. The reminder that ‘Nothing in this life is permanent’ assures…

Love and forgive all parts of you.

  So the trip to Olhao in the Algarve has come to an end, and  once again I’m on the plane as I write this to you. It has been a magical adventure with my friend The Mad March Hare filled with meeting new friends from all parts of the globe. All of them were in their own way creatives passionate about their business’s. These business’s ranged from food events and holiday planning, skincare- pottery- journalism -yoga -dance -art –…

We heal ourselves by peeling back the layers one at a time.

As I write this I have just had the most beautiful massage in a candle lit room here in the healing atmosphere of Portugal's Casa Fuzetta - I have had my fair share of massages, however today I realised I had never properly gone into the room with a healing intention. But I sensed that I did today as immediately the massage felt different. The Therapist started on my legs and quickly moved to my feet which was incredible. Then during the…
