Be who you were meant to be
From fear to love…
With my hand on my heart, I welcome you. Thank you for being here, with me, now. Thank you for showing up for yourself, and meeting me here.
Presence is what brings me into every moment, and it’s my intention to continue to be a container for love, and a reflection of my own Truth, as well as yours. This is my work. This is your work. With every person who chooses to show up and connect, deeply, into who they are (who we all are), the more ripples of love we spread out into the world. More love is always good.
I’m learning to feel comfortable feeling deeply vulnerable. I’ve learned to share more and, in doing so, I create stronger and more intimate and fulfilling connections. There is a beautiful quote from Jeff Foster about Truth and love, and I wanted to share it with you, to encapsulate the sort of connection which I’ve found facilitates the deepest and most profound changes for my clients, and defines the way I like to work perfectly:
LOVE’S DEEPER COMMITMENT
Let’s not commit to a future together. The future is so unknown, and we are so fluid, and tired of pretending that we know.
Our thoughts and feelings are ever-changing, uncontrollable, like a wild ocean of love.
Our desires wax and wane; our dreams are born and die in every moment.
Let’s not commit to a form of love. The forms are always shifting, like the tides.
We do not need security here. We are not seeking comfort, but Truth.
Let’s make a deeper commitment; one that cannot be broken or lost.
To presence. To meeting in the here-and-now.
To bringing all of ourselves. To knowing, and letting ourselves be known.
To telling the truth, today; knowing that our truth may change tomorrow.
To bowing before each other, even if our hearts are broken and tender.
No promises, no guarantees.

You are more than enough. You are perfect.
From my heart to yours, I honour you – Namaste,
ways to work with me
So just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for what you do, for your work and for being so AWESOME!
You are a remarkable lady with a big warm heart and I am forever grateful for all your help.

Are you seeing the soul, or the ego?
Whenever we feel judged by someone, it’s either a mirror for us, or fear coming up for them. I realised today that sometimes I’m interacting with a person’s ego, rather than their soul.
Whenever an interaction doesn’t feel good for you, train yourself to check in – is your ego talking, or your soul? Are you responding to the needs of their ego, or to their soul’s?
Souls want love and peace and happiness for everyone. Egos are selfish and scared and defensive.
Souls see that we are all connected and can unite in love. Egos see themselves as separate and alone.
Souls want to bring us together. Egos want to keep us apart.
Souls are compassionate. Egos only see what they think will serve them.
Shift your focus. Look for the soul. When you interact from a soul level, that connection will give you the moments of happiness, love and completeness your ego craves but doesn’t know how to get
Are you OK? How are you really?
I’ve had more conversations and ‘I’m concerned about [insert person’s name here]’ with people I care about this week than I have in a long time. I’m seeing people admitting they’re not OK, confide in me about wanting to or actually hurting themselves, heavy drinkers drinking even more than normal and recreational drug takers recognising their desire to use as a way to get away from what they’re feeling. I’ve been reaching out in my support network for even more support than usual because, well, these are unprecedented times and my mental wellness is essential for my….mental wellness?? (and obviously my work). And yet, I had an interview with week with @Coacharya (my coaching school), where we talked about how mental health is still so stigmatised that people still find it hard say when they’re not OK.
Sometimes they have a handy friend (ahem) who they know is totally OK with confessions of uncontrollable crying, numbing out, self-destructive substance / alcohol abuse, and sometimes when they finally say I’m not OK, they realise they’ve been holding it in for weeks, but didn’t know how to name it or what to do with it, and it feels like such a relief to admit it.
So this is my little PSA to myself and you, that your mental health is important, and just because everyone is going through difficult times right now, you are also entitled to your feelings, they are also valid, and it’s definitely OK to ask for support and to say you’re not OK if you’re not
Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha – Mantra for Ganesh, the Remover of Obstacles.
Usage: when you’re ready to let go of anything that might be holding you back and want a fresh start / new beginning.
Every time your mind goes wandering, tells stories of the past that aren’t teaching you anything new, or stories of the future that are made up and may or may not ever happen, interrupt yourself with this mantra. Repeat it often, ideally 108 times as a form of meditation
