A Gift for International Women’s Day!

Happy International Women’s Day!

To celebrate and offer thanks to all of the amazing ladies who inspire and support me in my life, whether in person or online, I have decided to gift an audio track of one of my guided meditations to anyone who wishes to engage with it.

The meditation focuses on connecting with the feminine energies to help to release negativity, as well as acknowledging and embracing the blessings that we have at present in our lives. Continue reading “A Gift for International Women’s Day!”

If your January was a non-starter, let February be your reset button!

As the song goes, ‘To everything, there is a season’……

 

If winter were a person, we would be slow-paced, strolling buddies. Winter is my season to go gently on myself. After years of ignoring my body and its warning signs, trying to operate at full speed all year round, I now realise that I probably am affected by the lack of sunlight and Vitamin D during this season, which can cause lethargy. I don’t function to my highest capacity over long periods of time when I am lacking in sunshine hours. I have less energy to expend. And I need more sleep.  So I put my focus on doing the basic things well. I take a daily Vitamin D supplement and have a S.A.D. light in my bedroom. I try my best to maintain self-care for body, mind and spirit daily, as well as embracing the gentle things in life, like meditation, walks in nature and good company.

Overcoming The Fear Of What Others Think

The start to my new year has taken on the theme of focusing on overcoming the fear of what others think. As a result, I have had a few enquiries from people around what I do to work on overcoming this fear. So here are some short and sweet pointers to consider for anyone who may be working on living a life which meets with their own approval, rather than that of anyone else.

If you are feeling anxious about what others think, remember…

 

It is important to mind your self-talk.

Paying attention to the opinions that you share silently with yourself during the day will give you a clue as to how much love and belief that you are offering yourself. In fairness, it is hardly fair to expect others to think and speak supportively about you if you are unable to do it for yourself. If you can catch the negative words that run through your mind about yourself, and acknowledge that by nature, we humans are usually Continue reading “Overcoming The Fear Of What Others Think”

Nature’s Cue is to Nuture!

As I sit to write this (again on a bed! My usual space for inspiration!!), it is 08.05 am and it is still pitch dark outside. I know the light will return soon. But when I take note of it being so late in to the morning and it still being so dark, I realise that nature is really giving us a big, bold sign that we should be hibernating a little bit more around this time.

Especially today, the shortest day of the year, the Winter Solstice. The solstice is not some imaginary notion concocted by pagans of yester-year. Those clever beings realised that it is a scientific concept, linked with the rotation of the earth around the sun. They also realised that most of nature surrounding them took a break: the leaves fell away, and many animals hibernated. This particular day was the pinnacle of this rest, the least amount of sunlight and the most amount of dark you’ll have in any day of the year. It’s a stripping back, in many ways. Back to basics, returning to Earth. Continue reading “Nature’s Cue is to Nuture!”

12 Priorities of Christmas

I love it, the chill in the air, the buzz around town, the twinkling of lights, the lot! It really is a magical time of year. But being honest, I know that it can also bring a hectic time of frantic running, overspending and feeling under pressure! I decided to create a list of some suggestions to help you prioritise your time, money, energy levels and attention, so that you can embrace the things that are truly important at this time of year.

 

1. Take time to handwrite Christmas cards.
Technology has made it so easy to send a quick generic text to wish all of our contacts a ‘one size fits all’ positive message for Christmas. But think how truly special the important people in your life will feel if you were to take the time to write a heartfelt message. I remember in my early teens, I received a Christmas card from someone who wrote ‘Thanks for being you’. One simple line made me feel so appreciated and seen for exactly who I was, and it has stuck with me to this very day still. So whether you tell your loved ones why you are grateful for them, or recall fond memories with them, your sincere couple of lines could make a massive difference to their Christmas, and beyond.
