Sometimes, I’m still my own worst enemy..


Becoming a Life Coach and being considered by clients as their Spiritual guide, doesn’t mean that I have it all figured out, nor does it mean, that I live in divine joy permanently.

Newsflash ego, that’s not who I am trying to be, that’s not who I need to be.

Recently, I realised, that I have once again been, my own worst enemy. I have been guilty of holding tightly to the belief, that I don’t resist life; unsurprisingly soon after, I will feel tired, I will feel overwhelm and clutter, and, ta da, I realise, that once again, my ego has tripped me up, albeit in a less obvious, sneaky way.

Life feels harder, when I resist what is.

I found myself wondering if sharing, that I go through this, would it help anyone, and then I remember, that I’m getting in my own way again, (another trick of ego).

What I do know, is that this new poem, created out of these feelings, has helped me hugely over the last few days, and has given me huge pleasure, in the creative process, so just maybe, it will resonate with any of you that sometimes, like me, jump on the self critical train, to Sabotage!

The great news is we can get off it, and change destination, anytime we please….

Changing destination.

With love.

Sometimes I’m my own worst enemy
I’m the one who lets me down
I’m the one who steals my passion
and scolds me when I frown.

I’m the one who trips me up
steals my joy and taints my love.
I’m the one who when my back
is turned, is giving me a shove.

It suddenly feels cluttered
but it’s not my heart that’s full,
the spaces in my mind, are jam-packed
and creativity is nil.

It’s because my thoughts are cluttered
that it becomes impossible to find,
the creativity, that’s inside me,
it’s as if suddenly, I’m blind.


I take a deep breath and lean inside,
my inner wisdom rears,
and like a spring cleaning ninja,
my mental cobwebs, have disappeared.

She says:

Embrace all the parts of you

that you would rather hide away

let them come out, but teach them how to play

They just need some guidance

from beginning to end,

which is why you must be, your own best friend.

The next Barefoot Talk, retitled, Love knows No Boundaries, is coming up on, Thursday 31st March…by Author of the truly beautiful, and  honest book, Gifted By Grief, Jane Duncan Rogers. This has been powerful and affirming for me to read. Jane is journeying down from The Findhorn Community, to share her experiences with us and I am delighted that she has felt the pull of The Barefoot Sanctuary.

To find out more or book your seat, click HERE.

Psst there is more….I am still looking for Light Makers (yes a new twist on light workers) who are ready to embrace their why and join me on a 9 month small group Soul Coaching Journey. This will be a special soul growth journey for all taking part.

BUT, I got ahead of myself, felt the overwhelm, creative process shut down, so I am postponing this to a September start, to let that become clearer. I will be in touch with each of you that have registered interest individually, and thank you for your patience, as follow my gut on this.

If this September opportunity resonates, send me a email and let’s have a conversation, or simply fill out the questionnaire and I will be in touch, real soon.

NEWSFLASH…What I now want right now, in a fun way, is to teach people how to tap into their own internal compass, because want I really want is to feel lit up as I reveal another layer of my Souls desires and to see people around me light up as they do the same.  Later next month, on Saturday 30th April, I will be running a, new, See Your Future workshop at The Barefoot Sanctuary, where together, we will tap into those inner desires, we will claim them and create a powerful vision board to guide us forward. There will be music (TAKE THAT for sure) laughter, lots of colour, hot brews and raw chocolate to get the creative juices flowing so if this feels like FUN to you, book your spot here today.

For a 1-1 coaching experience, with me,  fill out the same questionnaire.

Are you subscribed to the mailing list? you can do that easily by clicking this link, via the website Not all of my things get seen on social media, even if I post it, it’s just the way it is, due to the volume of Facebook feeds and their filters, so be on the barefoot mailing list for all up to date information.

With love and spring light till the next time…
