It’s Time…

Wearing a golden yellow dress today has got me feeling uplifted and in tune with myself on a different level. It’s the little things. It’s amazing the power and impact that colour has on your health and wellbeing. Have you ever thought about that? I feel divine!

This brings me to write about today’s musings which is all about our energy.

Energy is really simple. We complicate what it is, by giving it labels, by trying to define it and by categorising it as something that is perceived to be almost somewhat tangible. The truth is, energy is simply experienced, felt and shared. 

Have you ever walked into a room and felt that something was not right in that space? Have you ever met someone for the first time and they made you feel like you have known them forever? Have you ever leaped out of bed knowing in your heart that it is going to be an amazing day? Have you ever felt that the time is right for you to start or learn something new and unknown to you? I believe that you always know the truth by the way it feels. Always!

Your energy is truly contagious. The energy in every single being (whether it is animate or inanimate) is truly contagious. 

This is why it is so important to stay connected to yourself. It is important to stay connected because this helps keep you in check and helps you vibrate at a higher level of frequency, attracting more of what you actually want in your life. Who can deny you of all the joy that is waiting to present itself to you? 

Energy flows where your attention goes they say. So… it’s time to…

Stretch your thinking

Broaden your horizons

Expand your mind

Open your heart

Free your spirit

Raise your vibration

Amplify your energy

Your energy defines you. It all starts with you. It all ends with you. It is omnipresent. It is omnipotent. It is omniscient. Just like the universe! 

How blessed are you?

Stay blessed.

Our Love

I like to keep things simple at the best and worst of times. It is the little things that really matter the most. I’ve learned that life has its own plans, timing and way of ‘happening’. Sometimes this perspective forces me to take the backseat and allow things to happen in its own time and place and in the universe’s terms, not mine.

There is only so much we can control in life. Sometimes we have to let go and let love take over. And it is true that it is hard to fully let go. We love having things and situations to happen in our own way and time. We expect so much out of life and people and situations. Expectations can also drive us mad. Expectations can be harmful to our health and stress levels.

So it’s time to stop. It’s time to breathe. It’s time to let go. It’s time to let love.

Love yourself most importantly. Love the people you treasure the most in your life. Love your job(s) and passions. Love your dreams and work on them, one step at a time even. Love the uncertainty of life and what blessings it may gift to you. Love your solitude and the wisdom that it brings.    

Our love can change the world. We are all just walking each other home.

Stay blessed.

Never Give Up

That’s right. Never give up! The opportunities are abundant. Stay focused.

Do you have big dreams that you want to see materialise? Are you taking actionable steps to reach them? Are your intentions aligned to you achieving them? Have you got your goals written down and stored somewhere special that resonates with you? Are you moving forward, or moving at all?

These are some questions that came to mind just now when I thought about my own dreams, about what I want to achieve and about where I am in life.

You see, I’ve always been a high achiever (like most of you!) and this personality trait comes with its own pluses and minuses. The ‘pluses’ include being a go-getter at heart, always driven, committed, itching to continuously learn and grow and constantly wanting to move on because what I have isn’t simply enough, I want more… all the time.

Now to the ‘minuses’… well I beat myself up a lot when things don’t go the way I want them to, I constantly put pressure on myself to exceed my own expectations and others’ expectations, I don’t deal well with failure, I fear failure, I am constantly looking for what’s ‘new and better’, the desires are endless, I am rarely ever settled, I constantly question my own progress and performance, sometimes things are just not good enough and I am left unsatisfied with the circumstances of certain situations.

Now, to be honest I feel like I’ve focused more on the negatives than the positives. But my drive to excel and to keep growing is far greater than anything else that I desire in life.

This is just a reminder to myself really (and you if you’re reading this too), that it’s never too late. The truth is, life is a demanding journey, especially as you grow older and wiser. There’s never a reason that is justified to give up on what you really want. Stay focused. Keep trying. Be humble. Learn lots. Believe in yourself. Enjoy newness. Rise strong. Celebrate the good. Keep it real. Explore the unknown. And create magic with the power of the source that lies within you! *Insert fist pump here*.

Never give up!

That’s all I felt compelled to write for today.

Stay blessed. 

Guided by a Beating Heart

We are all human. We make mistakes. We beat ourselves up. We live and learn. We sometimes fail. We often fall. We have fears. We experience sadness. We lack motivation. We think we are lost. We break promises. We are not perfect. Not now, not ever. We will never be perfect. Perfection doesn’t exist.

What keeps us connected to ourselves is our hearts. Our feelings. Our capacity to feel is infinite. We know the truth by the way it feels. Whatever that ‘it’ maybe.

Some days are rough. We feel disconnected. We experience the rawness. We are wounded. We can see the scars and the sight ain’t that pretty. We question everything. We fear the unknown. These days are difficult. Not only challenging, but also uncertain. So how do we feel connected again?

Well, let’s start by taking a moment. A moment to feel present. A moment to see where we are. A moment to check in on how we are. A moment to observe what is happening around us. A moment to focus on our breath. We are guided by our beating hearts. Because in every heartbeat, in every moment, life changes and evolves. This realisation is powerful. This realisation dictates how we move forward. This realisation is the truth. This brings us back to the present. It brings us back to ourselves. It brings us back to our power.

The simplicity of our existence is something that we don’t ponder about often enough. Everything is simple. Truly simple. However, we are so carried away with what is happening in our lives and wanting to control circumstances that we forget to stay connected with simplicity and as a result life gets complicated.

We don’t know where the journey is going to go or where this journey will end. What we do know is that there is light. There is possibility. There is change. There is the next moment. The next heartbeat. And with that life continues. We are constantly guided by our beating hearts. And grace. Keep soldiering forward. One heartbeat at a time. Let’s walk each other home.

Stay blessed.

The ‘C’ Word

Relax. It’s not what you’re thinking. Read on to feed your own curiosity.

When I was younger I wanted to be older and be an expert at ‘adulting’. And now that I’m older and somewhat wiser (I hope?), I sometimes miss the good old days, the days when nothing really mattered and my heart roamed free of responsibilities and the uncertainty of life.

What I know now is that time flies. It seriously feels like it moves faster than the speed of light.

Looking back in time and reflecting on both the good times and the bad times, the highs and lows, the peaks and troughs, I now realise that I’ve wasted so much time.

I’ve wasted so much time not being fully present in the moments that mattered. I’ve wasted so much time not loving enough. I’ve wasted so much time saying no to opportunities due to my own fears and lack of belief. I’ve wasted so much time questioning rather than accepting and understanding. I’ve wasted so much time feeling like I’m not enough or inadequate. I’ve wasted so much time not being open to endless possibilities and harnessing my power to create. I’ve wasted so much time. And now I can’t get it all back. That’s the sad reality.

I’m not quite sure whether this blog post is going to go anywhere, but I’ll keep writing, trust the process and see what presents itself.

Sometimes we want to see and focus too much on the ‘ending’, the results or the fruits of our labour rather than realigning ourselves with the present moment and the journey itself. It sounds cliched and I write about ‘the now’ frequently but no matter how many times we are reminded of this, we still constantly forget. It’s so easy to get caught up on the results and outcomes, and the truth is the future is not easy to quantify. This is my learning for today. The decisions we make based on the assumptions, beliefs and stories we tell ourselves about our past, present and future dictate what we do on a daily basis, and from moment to moment. The power to choose and live consciously is also heavily influenced by what most people refer to as our ‘self-talk’. And let’s be honest. Our self-talk is not always positive or nurturing is it?

When I write, I always write short snippets of content. I rarely ever write long posts, and to be honest it is simply because I don’t have a long attention span and I find that I digest information more easily when it is fed to me in small doses. And I know this might sound selfish, but I’m not writing this for you or the blogging community. I only write for myself. Everything we do no matter how selfless, compassionate or service-related it is, we do for the benefit of ourselves. Don’t you think that’s true? We do these things because it makes us feel good. And with that in mind, we evolve.

Anyhow, I digress. Going back to speaking of waste. Yes, I’ve wasted a considerable amount of time in my past. So what’s next? What now? Well, given that there’s no going back, and only moving forward and upwards, I am making a commitment. Yikesss! The ‘C’ word gives me the spooks and bouts of anxiety. But I truly am feeling these words so I will continue to write.

I commit to living in the moment. I commit to newness. I commit to learning. I commit to love. I commit to bravery. I commit to myself. I commit to commitment. And the discipline that comes with it!

I think that’s the end. I believe that’s all I have to say. My vessel is empty (for now). My words are complete.

Stay blessed.

From Doing to Being

Sometimes it’s important to stop doing and just be. Enjoy ‘being’. It’s a verb. It’s about being present. And aligned. To what’s at the core of your spirit and consciousness.

Life has us running so fast sometimes… from place to place… people to people… from one experience to another. Sometimes we forget to take a break and check in on our alignment. Sometimes we forget to ask ourselves how we are actually doing.

This holiday season I had the privilege of spending time with loved ones. And especially with myself. I got to practice the art of being. To just sit quietly. And to enjoy the solitude that is found in being alone. Not lonely. But alone.

Silence teaches us so much. When we are being, we learn so much about ourselves, we find clarity in our experiences and wisdom in the lessons that we absorb through time and space. I also find that when I invest time in being, a lot of things fall into place effortlessly. I can’t explain why and how this works in words, but they just do. Our point of creation is at its peak when we are in a state of being. It’s critical that we have the right intentions, projections and dreams to fulfil because chances are they will. All in divine timing. And for our highest good. I trust this. I believe this. I know this. I just need to remember this!

Will you make time to stop and just be? Enjoy being.

Stay blessed.

New Beginnings. Welcoming 2019!

A season of newness. A reason to start living consciously, again.

Adventures are the best way to learn and create new memories. Here’s to many more new adventures in 2019 and an abundance of love, light, learning and happiness to boot. Wear courage and bravery, carry strength and perseverance, breathe in new life and restore love in empty places, spaces and with the people you care about the most. Hold your priceless treasures close to your heart, for it is moments and memories that will always be truly yours to keep, and everything else is temporary.

2018 taught me so much. It taught me about my own faith and beliefs, it taught me about pain and hurt, it taught me about people and their intentions, it taught me about being brave and most of all it continued to strengthen my relationship with love. I am forever grateful for all the lessons. And I am humbled by all that life has to offer, as life itself is my greatest teacher.

When I write, I feel aligned with the universe. I sometimes lose my sense of self and my fingers just keep typing away. That’s when I feel most in tune with myself and the source. This is why I write. This is why I’ll continue to share what I learn. Because it keeps me connected. It makes me feel alive. It’s all about my alignment.

What is it that keeps you aligned? Will you do more of whatever that is in 2019? Remember to put yourself first. Instead of making just New Years resolutions that may be temporary, why not think about what’s most important to you. And prioritise that.

May the divine light fill your souls and may your hearts always be full. That’s my New Year’s wish for you! Here’s a picture of my darling boy, Chai and I – stealing kisses since 2015 and counting. It’s the little things.

Happy new year beautiful people! Stay blessed.

Feeling Good

When you feel good, everything around you aligns in your favour! The magic of feeling good is not spoken or heard of very often. We are constantly running in a trance, participating in this rat race that we call life, from place to place, from one person to another, in an attempt to try and get shit done (excuse the French). We sometimes forget to stop or even slow down and just be present. It’s nice to take a break at least once in our twenty-four hour long day to feel good. To be present. To be in the moment. To be grateful for all the things that have gone right.

So this is your chance beautiful people! If you are reading this post, ask yourself, have you taken a moment out today to just stop… breathe… reflect… and to feel good? The power of this sensation is simply amazing. It aligns you to your own inner source so you can continue to create more of what you want in your life. It also ensures that you focus on the positive rather than the negative and recalibrates your vibration to take actions that will help fulfil your goals and desires, however big or small they may be. Every little win counts.

Enjoy feeling good and have a wonderful week.

Stay blessed.

Just Give It A Go

There’s so much in life that we don’t know about. And we don’t know about what we don’t know about. That’s right. Read that sentence again if you didn’t digest it the first time.

Sometimes we just have to live and learn. So just give it a go, I say.

What inspired me to write this post? Well… just what I’m experiencing at this point in time of my life. As we get older and continue to do our laps around the sun, we become more and more set in our ways. Three decades for me personally have proven to get me comfortable in my own skin, in my own ways and developing my own patterns of thinking and being.

It’s time to break this cycle. It’s time to strive towards excellence. It’s time to open our hearts and minds to something new. Today. And everyday. Every single day is different. Every single day is a fresh start. A fresh start to learn something. To try something new. Just give it a go, otherwise you’ll never know!

There are so many things that stop us from giving something new a go. More than just our comfort zones, there’s fear, there’s resistance to change, there’s lack of faith and belief, there’s lack of resources and information, there is a never ending list of reasons. And think about it… you are never truly ready to do anything anyway. Sometimes we have to look past all of this and just focus on giving it a go! Whatever that ‘it’ may be.

So… tell me! What’s stopping you from achieving or trying something new today? Are you ready to just give it a go?

We are all mortal beings. Life doesn’t last forever. Today is the perfect time. Don’t wait to do another lap around the sun before you make your move! The power is in the now.

Stay blessed.
