I’m not dancing on my own.

As I write this  I am am 20,000 feet in the air winging my way to Portugal for a bit of an adventure at a magical destination called Casa Fuzetta with my lovely friend and Barefoot practitioner Amanda Farnese Heath. She is practicing what she and I preach- self-love by taking a nap and I have my headphones on-listening to Kylie Minogue’s latest song ‘Dancing’- It’s so good- honestly – do play the video at the end. It’s a fresh…

Don’t overlook the beauty of your ordinary.

I’ve just spent a few days with the lovely Leah Cox. Leah is a fellow ‘Coach’ that I have gotten to know via the medium of Twitter of all things- which is somewhere I rarely hang out. From that medium we met in person whilst I was on a trip to see Marianne Williamson speak in London. You can read about that expereince here. Since that first meeting we have had gorgeous moments together - our conversations are always fun and…

Breathe in deeply all of who you are.

On Monday night I spent time at The Barefoot Sanctuary with some of our local Girl Guides. We spent just under an hour exploring the art of meditation. It is always amazing to revisit the exercise of spending time with 14 year old girls. They can be viewed as a 'Tough Crowd' having no idea how intimidating they might be to grown ups. They have great poker faces and one might leave believing that nothing has been taken on board. The first…

Focus on your why and it will flow.

  When you focus on your why things really do start to flow. 'Why' is a powerful energy. I believe that when you knowingly or unknowingly connect with  your why  it activates your greatest strengths, and when these are in action its pretty hard not to achieve what you want. Likewise if you don't know your 'why' - these every strengths are not being used and things can feel stuck. It doesn't matter what your why is - it's that…

You learn to trust by trusting.

I am frequently asked by clients – “But Bernie how do I learn to trust?”. My answer is always the same -You learn to trust by trusting. Otherwise the very inner guidance that I now believe we must trust – ‘our only way home’ is left unused – no wonder the feeling of being lost at sea sets in when we fail to take action again and again. We learn in this order – firstly we have to take a leap…

Where is my thinking separate from God?

One of the things that I notice most because I do a nightly journal is that some days I feel so blessed so loved, so in tune with the Divine that my gratitude’s flow easily from my pen but then other nights – well not so much- I pause and I have to dig deeper. These are typical the days where I have been in my head more that I have been present, I have judged myself over and over…

Focus on how you want things to be.

As I write this post I am aware that by picking the cards seemingly randomly the topics may jump all over the place – a bit like our daily thoughts can. It’s a message from the Divine that has been one of the most important ones for me to work on over the last 7 years, and so I am delighted to be writing about it on another snowy day. Following that temporary bliss in 2010, I soon discovered that…

Your story hides the real you.

  I’ve been thinking a lot about this message throughout today- and it’s been an unusual day here in North Berwick. Snow has descended closing schools and businesses- and with it the daily story of our lives seems to have been interrupted. Tomorrow is no longer a school day, the delivery trucks may not come to town and with it the realities of daily life are somehow hidden. In my role as an Intuitive Coach I guide people helping them…

No one shows up in the way you can.

Today’s card reveals such an important but simple message – let’s discover why? From the moment of birth, the seeds of our uniqueness the seed of our great essence is already firmly planted- deep inside of our Soul.-.and because of this together with your unique human experiences no one can show up in the way you can. These experiences will have been essential so that you can show up – fully wholly completely imperfectly. If you have ever watched someone…

Your life is your life’s purpose.

Have you ever struggled with hearing the following advice? – ‘you just need to find your life’s purpose and everything will make sense from there’ or ‘you need to lead a life of purpose to be happy’. I know I have. However, ‘this purposeful life’ felt unattainable – only meant for certain people not for me- other people’s yellow brick roads looked purposeful- Mine? Not so much. Then I woke up to this truth -Your Life is your Life’s purpose.…
