Be Careful What You Ask For….You Might Just Get It (Part Two)

In Part One of this story I was looking at how we sometimes put things on our wishlist without taking enough care to ensure that we are precise in our instructions and then wonder why they manifest in the way they do. I just wanted to pick up that theme again and continue following some more thoughts that occurred to me. Whenever I am asking for something to manifest in my life, I make the point of asking that it … Continue reading

Some Challenge is Good but Overchallenge Brings Chaos

I am a firm believer that having challenge in our lives is healthy and helps us to stretch and grow. Without it everything would certainly become stagnant and we would just rest on our laurels taking everything for granted. It’s amazing how we tend to welcome and prefer those people, situations and things that are in agreement with who we are and what we do but walk away from or close our eyes to those we feel uncomfortable or even … Continue reading

What do You Really Value in Your Life? (Part two)

I talked to you in What do you really value in your life (part one) about how many people think they know what their values are but when you look at what they say and what they do, you get two completely different pictures. I looked at the example of someone saying they valued getting exercise. They think they highly value going to the gym but turning up once a week at the very most and often not even that, … Continue reading

What do You Really Value in Your Life? (Part One)

It’s amazing how many people talk about values but really aren’t totally clear on what they mean by that. When you value something,  you hold it in high esteem and will make the time and space to prioritise it no matter what. And it’s quite interesting to ask someone what they think they value in their life. They may tell you all sorts of things but when you begin to look at their life under the magnifying glass, you get … Continue reading

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? Otherwise you wouldn’t even be able to ask the question in the first place. How often have you found the solution to your question and then said that the answer was staring you in the face all along. Everything in … Continue reading

Colour Therapy: wearing green clothing (Part 2)

I wrote a little while back about the significance of wearing green clothing and promised to get back with some further thoughts on the subject. Colour is such a fascinating subject isn’t it and I’m sure I could write a list as long as my arm of all the keywords linked with green but what I really wanted to do was give a bit more insight into how wearing this colour can affect your energy levels and what subtle effects … 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

Take Action and Make it Happen

Everything begins life as a thought. All those amazing ideas we give birth to that float around in the ether are just waiting there, in seed form, not knowing whether or not we’re going to take them all the way. And indeed, many of them will remain there. In fact, the vast majority of them do. How many times have you been completely relaxed in a total right-brain, creative space and suddenly you’ve had the most amazing idea? One that … 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

How to Enrich Your Life with Mindfulness Meditation

I love to maintain many spiritual practices in my everyday life as I can tangibly feel the benefits they bring me and thoroughly enjoy the process of doing them too. I’m convinced that my daily meditations are a real anchor for me in that they slow my mind and my pulse down, pulling a brake on the racing that is happening within me so that I can make real sense of everything that is happening. But I also know how … Continue reading
