Peaks of joy

“The sense I get is, once this has progressed a little further, there will be so many pockets of space inside of me that, being no longer stuffed full of so much stored information, I will be at liberty to sit back and allow energy to flow freely in and out of them, the way the sea fills gullies and rock pools on the beach, leaving its subtle imprint yet so easy to flow out again, experienced by me as moments of inspiration and peaks of joy.” Continue reading

Cultivating joie de vivre

Joy of life is about the most valuable commodity we have so we need to take charge of our own joy quota and do whatever we can to embody it, not to idealise it as a state beyond all care, outside of physicality as though joy is what we refer to as heaven, but in a physical sense hung around with all our most human traits. Thus the phrase joie de vive has it covered for me, as in, referring specifically to “the joy of life”; a kind of joy that is because of life, not separate from it. People say how can I have this when “things” are so dire and I would say go after it, make it happen, yes from your soul, but then once you have found ways to bring it into your body, those outside circumstances will start to change!

My word of the year is regeneration

The practice of choosing a word of the year has power because you spotlight and commit to it. When you veer off its path, you ask yourself why and you pull yourself back towards its steadying influence. You stay more aware of daily variances in belief system and come to recognise what is old patterning dragging you backwards, compared to what is new, opening doors of perception. More and more, you crave the latter and dismiss the former, under the auspices of this one guiding word. Continue reading

Reframing success (and the universe always has a plan)

Redefining success as a woman, a parent, an individual: Am I finally prepared to own that I have had it all along, that every step of this journey speaks of (yes, unconventional) success in so many areas ready to be reappraised by our rapidly altering world paradigm, where many of us refuse to be defined or measured by what we “do” for a living.

We still have a lot to learn

For too long, and pushing harder each year, the schooling machine has been whipping our kids through an examination-driven system more like the Grand National than an academy of life, geared at expelling productive economic units more so than rounded or wise individuals poised to conduct lives that contribute to the health of humanity and the planet.

All connected: navigating the tricky, sticky first experiences of realising our collective oneness

It’s never been more apparent that we are one giant organism…as connected as we have been made to feel disparate and separate. Ironically, though we seem even more separate than ever before, we are only proving this truism to ourselves and each other MORE right now, by feeling these awarenesses stirring in our own cells, often quite uncomfortably at first…and especially so during a dam-buster event such as New Year’s eve when all our boundaries come crashing down under the barrage of collective emotions. So, what now and how do we use this understanding to fuel a whole new collective momentum, towards a more positive state of affairs, in 2021 and beyond? Continue reading
