Endings… and new beginnings

Endings… and new beginnings

It is the time of Beltane. This is the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. A time when the Earth’s energies are at their strongest and YES I am feeling it. Are you? I have been doing a lot of new creation around my business and bringing new things in, which means allowing things to go. I am ending my time with the wonderful Right Brain Business Plan cohort circle by the fabulous Jennifer Lee. This blog post is an acknowledgement to my time over the last 3 years within this amazing circle, what I have learnt, how my business has progressed and acknowledging my need to move inward to create. I’ll start with this last point. I am ending my time within the cohort circle as I am being more inward. I am writing a book on life-coaching, with emphasis...

Why Retreat?

Why Retreat?

As I went deeper into knowing myself; healing from emotional and physical ‘stuff’ and embracing all that life is about; I realised that time AWAY from distractions is sometimes what the soul really needs to get to the root of the issues.   It is great and necessary to have some kind of time like this in your everyday. Maybe you have a daily inner connection practice, such as meditation, prayer, art or writing. However the strength and depth which you receive by going somewhere different for real deep connection, is on another level. You receive insights which are so amazing and on a retreat you have a wonderful group of loving people around you, who all want the best for you. It is like a mini or major vacation in a weekend AND with more...

Ground connection

Ground connection

As I watch Samson today, I remember Kruger last year. She had begun to slow down during the summer, ready for her spirit passing in October. She didn’t eat properly, was very slow in her pace and conduct and I see Sammy doing the same.   I took extra time today to connect more with him. I had an afternoon nap (what a pleasure) and could hear Sammy purring and loving the fact that a human can sleep during the day too   I sat by him as he grounded to the earth and enjoyed the grass – I received some extra grounding too!   These lovely moments have reminded me to stay very present today. To allow in what will, and to be in the NOW. It has been wonderful and immensely refreshing.   I am part of a 108 pilgrimage group which my lovely...

Enchanted

Enchanted

I have started a 108 day pilgrimage with the lovely Vanessa Sage and this morning I was ‘enchanted’ by turmeric and wanted to share with you all.   I bought some turmeric root over the weekend to add to my daily breakfast juice – I do apple, orange, beetroot, spinach, ginger, berries, sometimes carrot and sometimes coriander. I usually add turmeric in powder form, with some powdered greens (spirulina, nettle leaf, wheatgrass plus others).   It was such a delight to add the turmeric fresh into the blender this morning. It stained my fingers and the chopping board yellow, became translucent blue when in the juice and was ‘enchanting’. I loved this deeper connection with the herb and it made me remember what amazing antioxidant...

Sacred Spaces

Sacred Spaces

Last week I had my q&a call on my online program. The call featured previous participants from the program and one of them, Vanessa Sage of Sage Life Consulting - www.sagelifeconsulting.com, mentioned that the ‘heal thyself’ program managed to create sacred space online. Space which is warm, welcoming, one in which people feel safe, nurtured, comforted and that they are connected  with others in a loving environment. I know I create this physically in my meditation space at home and people enjoy coming to the classes and feeling the energy created and nurtured here. However, can this sacred space also be created online? AND have I managed to create this with the ‘heal thyself’ program? During the last year or so I have become more...
