Living The Authentic Self

To know and express our authentic self, it is necessary to take off the false masks. To survive a difficult childhood, fit in with our peers, hide our emotional wounds and vulnerabilities or to be part of a group, we often become who and what others want us to be. Overtime we may begin to identify with these false masks and we forget who we are. Eventually, these masks can feel more like a prison, than a coping strategy. No longer providing us with the safety and security we seek, we feel…

Dogma or Truth?

Dogma, defined as a point of view put forward as authoritative without adequate grounds, is typically an element in religious doctrine. Among the believers, a belief is viewed as truth, but stepping outside of their church group, a doctrine unsupported by fact can be obvious. It is not that such a belief is not true, but that it is questionable, dubious, even doubtful, improbable, or impossible. A foundation of the Christian Church is the Crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, the shedding of…

Being Aware of Stress is Critical to Managing It Well

“Laughter is the only medicine, without side effects.” ~ Shannon L. Alder

Although we tend to think of being stressed as an emotional state, there are actually many different types of stress. Paul Check has written about physical, emotional, chemical, nutritional, electromagnetic, and thermal stress. Each type of stress is a byproduct of either our thinking, our lifestyle choices, our environment, or our relationships. Worrying about time, anticipating the future, being…

We Are Never Alone - Our Spiritual Entourage

In our physical world, we can't help but notice those with their own entourages. Whether you're Jay Z and Beyoncé, Oprah, the Pope, Jesus and his twelve disciples, to many sports figures, powerful business leaders, to politicians, they all have one thing in common. They are surrounded by people whom they trust, have loyalty, can be advised, helped, inspired, healed, with a true sense…

What You Need to Know About Reiki Treatments

What you need to know about Reiki treatments

Reiki has become a very popular practice. Even hospitals have been contracting Reiki practitioners to come in and perform Reiki on its patients. Reiki is a natural process that focuses on energy to make you feel better – similar to acupuncture or massages.

The one thing you must always remember when getting a Reiki treatment is that it never hurts. It is always used in a positive way and can never cause damage.

The Reiki…

Leadership with Ancient Inspiration

Leadership has become a slightly suspicious term over the years. From an elegant term full of responsibility and capability, many people today associate leadership with misuse of power and corruption. The more anarchistic inclined may have come to the conclusion that the time for leaders are gone, that we are now all our own leaders, and don't need any guidance in any area: be it political, social, moral or spiritual. But however attractive such a…

The Wrong Soul Mate?

The Powerful Transformative Force of a True Soul Mate/Twin Flame Connection

There are different reasons why we meet a soul mate or why we don’t. Everything we encounter is here to give and teach us something. A true soul mate – or twin flame - connection is extremely powerful and has the potential of transforming not only the two experiencing it, but also many more. The unconditional love, in its purity and radiance, and its galactic level, carries an enormous…

Where Do You Draw the Line?

Countries have them and defend them fiercely. Basketball courts and soccer fields have them and they are fully respected and enforced. Banks, homes and even parking lots have them. Yet so often, these are what we, as human beings, struggle with the most. BOUNDARIES.


Yes, boundaries are relatively easy to define and hold physically, yet so much more difficult to define and hold personally.


Now, are we as vehement and intentional with our own personal…

Reframing Dominance and Control


Control…Dominance… When we hear those words, we can almost think they are synonymous. In terms of outcome, both words seem to invoke the same result…that of one person or thing being held under the will of another person or thing.


Yet, when a Facial Intelligence Expert looks at those words, she sees two distinct faces with very different facial features. Her distinction gives her a unique perspective on people, their behavior and their expression of…

Staying Abundant in Uncertain Times

There is an energetic wave sweeping through the world right now that is running at the frequency of lack and the fear of not enough. People everywhere are going into conservation mode. They are deciding that they are low on funds and that this is not a time of abundance. 

This is an especially important time to be aware of what is really going on in your world. When the mass majority becomes afraid, we get swept up in the energy of that. People are afraid of uncertainty. The Brexit…

Having a midlifer – why it’s not a crisis

I couldn’t have ordered it better if I tried. Bang on my 50th year and I find myself deep into a 'midlifer' as I now call it. How did that happen? (LOL as I write this).

I have been aware of the term ‘midlife crisis’ for years and when I was younger thought ‘nah that’ll never happen to me’ and yet it has.…

Your natural rhythm

We have been medicated by noise, distraction and a million opportunities to think about new things for so many years now, that we have forgotten when it all started. And then there is worrying about the future and being held back by thoughts of the past.

We have so little head space for listening to ourselves and stress, that…

Yoga isn't Yoga when your mind is somewhere else

It’s easy to turn up to a Yoga class and do a bunch of Yoga postures and then tell everyone that you go to Yoga. But my question is ‘Do you?’

Having practised on and off for over 20 years and taught Yoga since 2008, for me there are 3 totally essential elements to making Yoga, Yoga, in its completeness.


Your body arrives on the mat to perform a whole routine of Yoga postures. Tick.


Your breath happens within the body so it is there of course!…

Guilt free slowing down

I have wanted to write about this for ages. I live with it every moment of everyday these days and I notice it happening all around me. People are getting sick from it and yet it carries on getting faster and faster.

Your body wins every time

Our body is always in charge, no matter how much mental persuasion we think we have, period.

Tension in Yoga

Tension, we live with it like an annoying friend. It’s created by the mind but shows up in the body in the form of tightness in areas like neck and shoulders, chest and pelvis.

Where do you hold tension? Think of what normally creates it and where you hold that stress. Tension is another name for body stress and often a result…

How To Stop Emotions From Controlling Your Life

Emotions are designed by nature to be fleeting. They are meant to rise to the surface of our bodies to be felt, acknowledged, and released, once and for all. Emotion just wants to be recognized. Biologically, emotion is meant to prompt us for action, give us important information about our surroundings, motivate us and help us communicate to others. However, most of us have learned to ignore this internal guidance system and avoid ‘negative’…
