The Answer’s Already There in the Question

Were you aware that the minute you ask a question, you already have the answer? That it is already there in some form and all you have to do is change your perception to be able to see it fully?

You Need More than Relaxation Exercises to Find the Balance

It’s a fact that very many people are unable to find the balance between their work life and the time they spend at home or recreation. And if things get a bit tight, it’s the work that wins the day and everything else has to just get squeezed in somehow. So what is it that drives us to prioritise the stressful job over spending quality time with kids or partners? Fear of losing the job, not earning money, not being … Continue reading

Making the Change – Upgrading to a Private Server

Well, after a long period of intending to do it, it’s finally happened. Today I have managed to make the transition from WordPress.com to WordPress.org and it has certainly been a process full of surprises. But making changes is always exciting. And especially upgrading.

Time for Change – Heralding in the New

When the New Moon arrives, it’s the perfect time for heralding in the new. Time for releasing the old with gratitude and welcoming new projects.

What do You do While You're Waiting?

You see it doesn’t belong to us, we only have a rental contract and the landlord is wanting to sell, which means that there are regular viewings by potential buyers. Now this means that we’re in a bit of a no-man’s land as we have no idea how long it will take for a sale to happen and we are keeping an eye out for a new home. … Continue reading

Giving up the Struggle and Connecting with Source

I’ve been inspired to write this post by my experiences of having the flu for the past two weeks. It was the first time ever and I must admit, I got quite a shock at the severity of it because I always thought it was just a bad cold. Not so. I think the most difficult part to deal with was the coming and going of the flu symptoms and each time I thought things were beginning to improve, the … Continue reading

Competitors? What Competitors? It's All a Question of Resonance.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8hh27h_UPA&w=480&h=390] I was inspired to write this blog post by the silk painting community that I interact actively with online. It was founded by the lovely Francine Dufour Jones and is a wonderful place for silk painters to connect, share and ask questions. And it has struck me how so many people have been worried about how to market themselves in the face of so much competition. Well, it’s my honest opinion that we are all so totally unique as … Continue reading
