The book in Essence
Have you ever wondered if there was an ‘after-life’, whether God or a form of Divinity exists… if you have I urge you to read this story by Anita Moorjani, for once you have, I doubt you’ll have too many doubts about the existence of what lays beyond this life. Continue reading →
Over the past few months I have immersed myself in written and spoken words related to A Course in Miracles, mostly words by the wonderful student and teacher of the Course, Marianne Williamson.
I was honoured to see her speak last year, and while I had read part of her book A Return to Love years before, I’m reading it now with fresh eyes, and devouring all the wisdom she has to offer.
She talks a lot about Miracles being a shift in perception from fear to Love. She uses the language of the Course, which is written in traditional Christian language used in very untraditional ways. To be honest, these words resonate at the very core of who I am and I am loving it.
The Course talks about in every moment there are only two options: Love or fear. So you can choose to see, speak, act, remember or think through either of those lenses. It’s a choice and You are solely responsible, regardless of what is presented. Continue reading →
I must confess, I am not a fast reader. Sometimes I read over a paragraph three or four times so I can absorb what it is offering me. But I do love books. And, I’m not a fan of those kindle devices (although I’m partial to an printed out e-book!). My books are all scribbled, underlined, ear-marked and loved!
I’ve been reading personal growth and spiritual texts since I was nineteen. I literally devour them. I can happily say, they have helped shape who I am today. It’s an honour to be able to directly learn from some of the greatest teachers in the world, right in the comfort of my bed (double bonus!!).
I was guided to read my first ‘self-help’ book, Feel the fear and Do it Anyway by Susan Jeffers at 19. A friend of a friend was talking about reading it and the impact it had made on her.. I thought it sounded very intriguing so I went off to Collins Bookstore and bought myself a copy. This very easy to read book gave me my first major ah-ha realisation which went something like:
“Holy Beeeep .. I Get to choose the course of my life, I CAN actually make choices! Fear isn’t a sign that I ‘shouldn’t’ do something?!!!”
I run a sweet meditation circle every Sunday, and have done this on and off for nearly two years. I am mostly an extrovert and usually confident in public speaking…
So I was totally surprised when I my belly started to flutter like 100 butterflies were hatching inside as I began to welcome in all the beautiful women who said ‘Yes’ to my Full Moon Circle last month.
I had genuine nerves.
I had no expectations when I created this workshop, it was born out of pure inspiration. I do this type of ritual often when I am feeling the need to release and let go, and have done variations of this for more than 10 years.. I know the power of it (and the extra bonus power of the potent Full Moon energy) and I thought how cool it would be to guide others through this simple yet deeply soulful work.
Little did I know, as the warm glow of nerves bubbled up in my body that this workshop would facilitate genuine shifts and, dare I say, miraculous outcomes for the women this space was carved out for. Continue reading →
What if we ALL performed a Radical Act of Love. And by Radical, I mean just that. I really HUGE act or gesture which felt SO good you could bust. Which felt so freaking terrifying you felt your heart almost jumping out of your chest or you tummy about to implode? Which raised your vibration, and in doing so, raised the vibration of the collective in this beautiful place we live in?
The world needs this NOW.
Over the past few months there has been some big shifts for me. I attended a wonderful meditation retreat in my favorite place on earth, Byron Bay, late last year. While at the retreat I didn’t feel huge shifts, although I knew subtly things were changing. The week I returned I felt floaty, like I was in a dream until I heard the news about the Lebanon and Paris tragedies. Continue reading →
I am a self-confessed crystal lover. I love the way I can intuitively pick a crystal which is right for me, in that moment. I love the way they look and feel. But most of all I love how incredibly powerful their healing energy works.
We are drawn to crystals, which reflect where we are at. They are able facilitate our healing. When we are supported by crystals, we raise our vibration, and in doing so can help us to heal.
Much like crystals can heal, meditation does the same thing.
Meditation is a conscious act in bringing yourself into alignment with your highest self. Stepping into the fullness of who you are, ditching the limiting beliefs and preconceived perceptions. Continue reading →
