Stress Kills! Find Your Triggers and Take Action!

Identify Stress Triggers & Take Action Throughout my work with individuals and groups as a Meditation and Stress Therapist, I see first hand how little the general public are aware of the physical symptoms of their stress. This is such a terrible shame seeing as stress is the number ONE underlying cause of ALL modern illness and disease! SHOCKING! Stress has become the go-to word to describe a myriad of emotions, feelings and situations in our lives. How many times have you heard someone say: “I’m too stressed to deal with this” “I’m so stressed out” “Life is really stressful at the moment” How many

Awaken to Your Inner Silence

Monday Inspiration! Meditation expands self-awareness and is a tool for the re-discovery of our body’s own inner intelligence. Practiced for thousands of years, it’s not about forcing the mind to be quiet, it’s finding the silence that’s already there and making it a part of your life. Silence is the birthplace of happiness, creativity, and infinite possibilities. From this field of pure potentiality we get our bursts of inspiration, our most intuitive thoughts, and our deepest sense of connection to the universe. Practicing meditation on a daily basis allows you to weave silence and stillness into your mind and body to

Breast Cancer and the BRCA tests – My Personal Story

My Personal Story Breast Cancer and the BRCA Tests I felt compelled to write this newsletter after watching and listening to all the media talk on Angelina Jolie’s choice for a double mastectomy after the results of her BRCA tests. I’m sure there are many other women (and men) out there in a similar position who have spent a split second wondering if they made the right choice because of a celebrity making hers, or who are now beginning to wonder about their own health in this area after seeing the news. As this media announcement is personal to my own circumstances, I am sharing my story here

Ho’oponopono Meditation: A Way to Healing and Forgiveness

Ho'oponopono Meditation: A Way to Healing and Forgiveness

Ho’oponopono.. Pronounced “hoh OH pohno pohno,” it is the ancient Hawaiian system of healing, problem solving and transformation. If you’ve been carrying around guilt, blame, regret, anger or shame… perhaps practising Ho’oponopono for forgiveness, is just what your mind, body and spirit need. In Hawaiian the word means “to make right or to rectify an error.” This may not necessarily be something literal that you have done. An “error” can also be a memory (or memories) of emotions, words, situations and behaviours that replay in your subconscious mind and feed your limiting beliefs. By practising Ho’oponopono, we are able to open our subconscious minds to

Breathe Your Way to Relaxation Your breath is vital for your health, healing and well-being. We so often don’t even notice our own breath even though it is the reason we sustain life. want credit Below is a quote from Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn, pioneer of MBSR – Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. He has a wonderful way of explaining your breath and why it’s so important: “Take the breath, for instance. We take it so much for granted. Unless, that is, you have a bad cold or can’t breathe. Then all of a sudden, the breath may become the only thing

Visualisation for a happy mind, body and soul

Visualise Your Best Self Did you know that your mind is a powerful tool in helping you create positive changes in your life? Using creative visualisation can help the subconscious mind to create real and meaningful associations with the feelings and desires of what you truly want to instil in your daily life. This paves the way for a happy mind, body and soul. wealthy Begin by imagining what you would like more of: how you will feel to have it, feel it, be it… and then spend a few minutes playing it out in your mind as if you

Are You Eating Your Feelings & Emotions?

Are You Eating Your Feelings & Emotions?

Do you EAT your feelings? It might be a fear of not being good enough, a tendency to follow instead of speak up, or simply daily life challenges building up. When you find yourself emotional eating, have you ever thought about what it is you’re trying to avoid? The most effective way of overcoming emotional eating is to FEEL your feelings instead of pushing them way down into your cells and piling food on top of them. Change and uncertainty take time to adjust to. The longer you ignore, discard or push aside what you are TRULY feeling, the deeper they will go

You ARE Good Enough!

It’s been a quick year and we’re nearly to Christmas! I wanted to remind each of you that regardless of what stage you may find yourself at on your personal journey through life, always remember…. You ARE good enough! You ARE worth what you want! I believe in you.  If you don’t believe in yourself or your own worth then it’s time to conquer the fear or anger that’s stopping you before it monopolises another year of your life.  To change your life for the better, start with your THOUGHTS about your life. Your thoughts shape your experience and then

How To Be Grateful in a Challenging World

How To Be Grateful in a Challenging World

Practising Gratitude Even though Thanksgiving is an American holiday, it’s a wonderful act of gratitude that I teach my students and clients to do on a daily basis. Particularly for those struggling to shift negativity. When our attention is constantly focused on the annoying, uphappy, challenging, upsetting or just plain hard aspects of our lives, negative thoughts can consume us. This constant worry and stress can perpetuate feelings of helplessness, depression and anxiety – particularly leading towards Christmas time. In this state of mental stress and tension it’s all too easy to forget that whatever it is, it will pass in time. In

It wasn’t your normal kind of dancing – it was so much more than that. Initially I thought, hmm, I’m not so sure I want to do this in front of a bunch of people I don’t know! BUT… once we began I found myself quickly forgetting about the other people struggling to find their own personal rhythm; some swaying timidly, others clearly uncomfortable and
