From Force to Flow

Oh the irony! How could I have forgotten – Simplicity – one of my three chosen key words. But forget I did. Somehow, over the past couple of weeks I found myself caught up in that sticky energy of ‘trying’ to write my next blog post. Despite numerous attempts the words simply didn’t flow. After […]

Easing Into 2017

After the New Year celebrations, I am slowly easing my way in to January. My youngest girls are back at school so I am able to enjoy some reflective time to quietly tune in and see what wants to come through as we stand in the wings of 2017 and this brand new cycle of […]

Endings and Completions

The last few days leading up to Christmas I noticed myself falling into old patterns and behaviours; simplicity temporarily slipped out of the back door.

Why Are We Afraid Of Ourselves

I love observing trends. One that I’ve become very much aware of is our tendency to feel safer when we’re part of the pack, rather than owning our gifts and standing truly in our power. Oftentimes we look outwards, seeking the answers, hoping we will be given permission to share our gifts, and to feel […]
