Meditation For Examining Your Beliefs

This meditation appeared in my mind after writing last week’s post, Breaking Up With My Spiritual Guru, and I felt an strong desire to share it with you. I have come to realise that it is so important to take stock of your beliefs, and examine them to see whether they actually serve you and…

Manifestation and Expectation

It is my intention to be radically real in my writing here, so I have to confess before we go any further that this isn’t a peppy blog post about how you can manifest your dreams.  There are many of those types of posts out there on blogs and social media, and in books.  Some…

Creating a Relationship With You! (With a Free Happiness Menu!)

Do you have a good relationship with yourself? Do you know yourself? How do you treat yourself: lovingly, with acceptance, or with disregard? Do you take the time to provide for your needs? To shower yourself with love and affection? Any relationship – with yourself or with others – takes giving and commitment.  But, how…

Why Losing Belief Isn’t Always Bad

I want to talk about belief, and the loss of belief, because I think that this can be one of the scariest and most difficult things to endure. Beliefs, whether secular, religious, New Age or whatever, are the corner stone of our conscious lives.  They inform our thoughts, actions, interactions and our choices.  They can…

How can you practice visualisation and manifestation and not want the exact thing you…

But, as we are…

Body Love

    Arriving in Queensland, Australia to visit my family a couple of weeks ago, I had the unexpected treat of attending a talk by Taryn Brumfitt, founder of the Body Image Movement.  Although she is a well-known campaigner, writer and speaker, I had not heard of Taryn Brumfitt before that night, though I ended…

Lots of sunshine and no rules!

I’m sitting in the sunny garden of the Auckland hostel where I am staying. It is a beautiful day – hot, yet peaceful. A few other travellers chat softly in the garden, which backs onto Western Park with its lovely expanse of trees and greenery.  I’m contemplating my next moves: decisions which have caused me more…

Book Review: The Goddess Revolution by Mel Wells

I loved this book, plain and simple. I have been reading a lot of self-love and empowerment books lately and they have all been so fantastic, but what I really loved about The Goddess Revolution is Mel Wells’ warmth. At times, reading this felt like being enveloped in a big hug. Her wisdom, earned from…
