"I'll be happy when..."

Posted on January 6, 2020 at 2:55 AM

Our brains are naturally wired to delay our happiness.

Waiting for things to be all sorted. Solved. Aligned. Put into place.

When I get that job, that relationship, that holiday, that baby, that house... whatever it is that we think will bring us salvation. Joy. Peace. Freedom. Love. 

But the truth is, as we all know rationally, when has life ever stopped when that milestone arrived? And how long did the joy, happiness and satisfaction that we had been waiting for, last...

Energy Within

Posted on December 5, 2019 at 5:35 AM

We only have a finite source of precious energy.

And it is up to us where we choose to invest it.

Do we out pour it into thoughts of the past- memories, regrets, past jobs or relationships?

Do we let it go into worries, blame, complaining, negativity, fear or doubt?

Feeding stories connected to our wounded selves, out dated versions of aspects that no longer feature in our current life?

Or do we choose a new adventure?

Re-write our story, invest...

Health Shaming

Posted on October 23, 2019 at 4:10 AM

When it comes to our health, many of us are on a journey to reaching a more optimal state, be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual in nature.
Sometimes though, we can experience negative experiences with health professionals.
This can leave us feeling worse. Hopeless. Ashamed of our behaviours. Regretful of not taking advice. Or simply feeling unheard.

We can take many things from this kind of experience.

Thriving in life as an Empath

Posted on January 31, 2019 at 10:05 PM

Life as an Empath is certainly a magical experience...

We are blessed to experience highs that can take us to states of bliss, with profound joy and elation, yet can just as easily shift into states of intense negative emotions like fear, sadness or despair, when we take on too much of our surroundings, other's energy, places, society and more broadly the world at large...

So how can we bring some balance, equanimity and peace to our ever colourful, ever changing landscape o...

The illusion of a sensitive soul

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 8:20 AM

So many of us have been told throughout our lives that we are weak because of our sensitive nature. Have been told not to cry, to “toughen up” and have been seen by the external world as fragile, incapable or soft.

But the truth of it is that the strongest of souls, the toughest people I have ever met, are those earth angels that have felt it all. 

When you are blessed with a sensitive heart, you are blessed with the ability to truly feel what another can feel. To...

Diving Beyond Distractions

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 8:15 AM

Men are not free when they are doing just what they like. The moment you can do just what you like, there is nothing you care about doing. Men are only free when they are doing what the deepest self-likes. And there is getting down to the deepest self! It takes some diving.” DH Lawrence

From the moment our eyes blink open in the morning, we are faced with a choice; reach for the phone or take a moment to pause, set an intention for our day, savor the sanctuary of our bed or even s...

Channelling your Inner Shakti

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 8:15 AM

Something I’ve been contemplating in my own life recently is the influence of energy in our lives. Whether male or female we all have feminine and masculine energy within, and in different domains of our lives these forces are either activated or can lie dormant or even suppressed. For instance in a male dominated work place, where we may need to be assertive, instructive and make things happen, we need to activate our male energy otherwise known as Shiva, to get things done on a very p...

Love thy self

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 8:15 AM

Something I have been reflecting on recently is the idea of making a difference and leading a fulfilled life. So many of us go about our llives really wanting to make a contribution to the outside world and to affect the wellbeing of others in a positive way.

However most of us, at least at times in our lives, can be harsh, critical and judgemental of ourselves in ways we would never dream of being towards others.

I have been reflecting on the idea that maybe it goes the other way...

Reflections on The Secret Within by AnneMarie Postma

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 8:10 AM

“ When life becomes difficult for a moment, if it doesn't go the way we planned, we just take a little pill.


1.) We have a universal right to happiness and mental health, which, if all else fails, we can claim from our family doctor by way of a prescription.

2.) We can grow without going through life’s unavoidable phases of fear, doubt and pain.

3.) The darkness is something we should fear and battle against or something we need to be ‘cured...

The Beauty of Life...

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 8:05 AM

Life is a complex series of events, challenges, beautiful moments and then pain.

It can at times make you feel like giving up, giving in to the adversities and challenges that are uniquely placed along your life’s journey.

But then something unexpected happens.

You meet an interesting person- someone who shows you a new way of being or a different lens through which to view the world.

Or you start a new job venture, accomplish a challenge, surmount a previously i...
