Honour your Courage

I was out for a walk this week with the dogs and ran into a woman taking some photos. Of course I started talking, because that’s what I do. In the course of the conversation, we were sharing some of our stories, and she said ‘you are so courageous!’ It got me thinking, I don’t always share stuff I’m going through or how I’m living, because it’s become so normal to me. She reminded me that many of the choices I’ve made in the past ten years are incredibly courageous. This is the thing with normalising our own experience – it’s one of those things I often question about what to share and what not to share. It feels so completely normal and natural to Continue reading Honour your Courage

Building Healthier Relationships

What does the word ‘relationship’ really mean? You’re connected to everyone and everything; in other words, you’re in relationship with everything in existence. The world is a mirror, into which you look and observe yourself experiencing. Fun, eh? Breaking this concept down, whoever comes into your life is an expression of some aspect of yourself. Every meeting (re)presents an opportunity for growth and expansion. The key to healthier relationships with others is to get clear on your own patterning. The reason you may be attracted to toxic or unhealthy situations is because they’re in some way familiar, and feel comfortable (even while they also feel very wrong). The familiarity can be extremely subtle, so unless you can look honestly and consciously at the root of Continue reading Building Healthier Relationships

Independence, Co-dependence and Interdependence

Good morning and Happy Tuesday! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend (some were long weekends) and are feeling positive about the new month ahead. There is definitely expansion happening, and we may be called to be more visible or visible in different ways this month. I was lying in bed last night and got some messages around independence, co-dependence and interdependence. It seemed independence was the word of the day yesterday. I pulled the Bast card from the goddess deck, whose message was independence. It was July 4th, which is the day the US celebrates their independence. And a Facebook group I’m a part of was considering the ideas of independence and freedom. So let’s look at these three concepts. Independence on a feeling Continue reading Independence, Co-dependence and Interdependence

March 2016 Visibility Challenge

This visibility challenge was an opportunity for me to commit to myself to show up every day, no matter what, to create a video. I had no particular ‘reason,’ other than to explore the vulnerability of being visible in more ways. When I first began, I had no idea what the topics would be, or if I’d have enough to cover the time I had committed to. Each day led to insights that offered potential topics for the next day, and so on. I enjoyed the process, and feel I gained a deeper sense of alignment through the daily explorations. I came to understand that being visible is not just an external experience. It is an integral experience that flows from deep within, expressing externally Continue reading March 2016 Visibility Challenge

Karma is SO old paradigm

Whooo! Something BIG shifted this past weekend and it feels like we’re being presented with a clean slate. New beginnings like we’ve never imagined are afoot. This means our past no longer defines our present or future – a total conscious awareness of our every moment and the choices we make. This is available to ALL at any time. Let go of old stories and any past pains/challenges/worries/experiences as a way of BEing. Start fresh. Make different choices. BE YOU, completely and whole-heartedly, whole-SOULedly. Allow this same freedom for others. And don’t forget to stay open to the gifts that are always being given. Thunderbirds are GO! (Later in the day…) Okay, further revelations around this… This is tied to deep collective structures and patterns Continue reading Karma is SO old paradigm
