Follow your own yellow brick road.

I vividly remember the joy of watching the Wizard of Oz for the first time- my eyes agog when Dorothy arrived in the colourful Oz. You see I believe we each have our very own yellow brick road. My Barefoot Talk in October 2016 goes into this in detail and is available to watch on my You Tube channel here. But as it’s popped up as the writing topic for today’s post let me share briefly what it means to…

My love for you is eternal.

So day 3 into writing daily and it certainly focuses the mind. I had a thought earlier that for some of you seeing the flowers daily might be enough as they will bring a message of your own. If you want to find out what I took from it read onwards -But remember If you don’t want to do either going forward it’s okay to unsubscribe. Just like the flower says- My love for you is eternal. I decided to…

Open your heart and let more love in.

All too often we may unknowingly have closed our hearts- maybe it got hurt badly one time so the message our brain tells us is don’t do ‘that’ again it’s too scary – it hurts to much- we can’t handle it. The thing is -this heart that beats within us can never actually be broken. It has the capacity to feel so very much – in fact it’s the reason we came here – to experience it all -the good…

Slow down sweetheart there is no need to rush.

A few days ago my son hopped into the car beside me and immediately said "Mum I can't wait until I'm taller than you". He is about half an inch away. This made me smile and yet really feel for him, remembering all too well the angst of teenage growing years. In his race to manhood his height is ever present - the rush to leave childhood spurring him on. A few weeks before he had asked if he could go to…

Giving yourself permission to shine.

This is a subject close to my heart but it is full of layers. In my view we have a life times worth of peeling to do -but we are in this for the long game right? So we will always able to peel back some more to reveal even more of our NESS! When I was approached by Tabitha Benway about taking part in the Your Ageless Body  summit I instantly liked her tone and it has been really…

My Barefoot Conversation with Yogi and Writer Melanie Frome.

"Each of us is born with super powers" - Melanie Frome As I write this introduction of the interview that I did with Melanie Frome in the early January, I am sitting in a little cottage in Findhorn Morayshire. My lovely friend Alisoun Mackenzie is here to do her first Ted talk and I have joined her for a fresh perspective and to be around the energy of the speakers. You can join us via the live stream via this…

I’m such an idiot..

  I am such an idiot… Those were the words that a really lovely secure sounding woman said just at the end of the interview with a Radio Presenter. She had been telling a very funny story – according to the presenter, this story had made her day – so in short this woman by sharing her story had contributed JOY and so when she signed off by saying “I’m such an idiot” I wanted to reach into the radio…

Get Up-Dress Up-Show Up!

As I write I’m sitting at my kitchen table and it’s a joy to hear once more the tap of my fingers on the keyboard- it’s a sound that I always hear daily in my head but as you cannot read my mind the words I have tapped out there – more and more of late have been lost in that process- I apologise both to myself and to you for that as we start this New Year. As I enter…

What to do when Stroppy comes to town!

As I write I’m sitting at my desk with the sun beating down on my face through the window of The Barefoot Sanctuary so much so that the memory of the rain is already fading – the reality is that’s it’s rained here for almost 5 days with not many breaks and this new burst of sunshine has got me thinking about our self -love journey. I think things inside our minds are really much more like the weather than…
