Persevering to Get Past Resistance

For the past few months I’ve been consciously working on moving past the resistance that arises within me to doing things that I have been trying to avoid for a long while. The more I bring focus into my life, the more determined I become to move towards goals I have held for many years and never quite found them momentum to realise. And as my determination grows, so too does my resistance. Everywhere I go the topic of resistence … Continue reading

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

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

Spiritual Guidance through Mandala Art

Many years ago I was drawn through a series of synchronicities to a workshop on creating mandalas. It was one of those situations where I just responded to the little voice in my head and signed up. That was 13 years ago and if you have seen any of my silk mandala art, you will know that my experience on that day opened up a whole new creative path for me, one that continues to this day. My home is … 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. I spent the last few days ironing out glitsches that were popping up all over the place and regrouping all the work I had done so far, creating new categories more in alignment with what I … Continue reading

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. Definitely a time for taking a step in the direction you want to move in. And that is exactly what has been happening today, with the new moon. I stood and watched the sun setting from the lounge window. It was a flaming, vibrant orb, almost like wet dye on one of my silk paintings. … Continue reading
