Monday Mantra:: I enjoy the space between

Where are you now? Where do you want to be? What's stopping you from enjoying the space between the two places? It's easy to get lost in the striving, in the working, in the doing. When you have a goal or life situation in mind and you're spending all your time focussing on it, it … Continue reading Monday Mantra:: I enjoy the space between

Making Space

When you want something, when you're calling it in, and doing all the "right things" and that something is not coming your way, perhaps it's because there's not enough room for it to be in your realm. Making space could mean finding space physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, financially, energetically etc. There's more than one way … Continue reading Making Space

Monday Mantra: I choose to know my “stuff”

We all have "stuff". Old stuff that keeps us locked in a holding pattern. It keeps us in the same old same old. It keeps us from moving forward and upward in life. It holds up back from the experiences we seek. It keeps us from the light said of life. The only way to … Continue reading Monday Mantra: I choose to know my “stuff”

Dedication: A word for Myself

I was silent a lot of last year. It was a big year and while I thought I was busy and didn't have time to dedicate to my writing, I was actually busy avoiding dealing with what life had dealt me over the year. Stress can be tied to many things and it's not just … Continue reading Dedication: A word for Myself

Monday Mantra:: I Go With The Flow

This one is from the archives. I felt it was a good time to share this again as it’s the beginning of a new year and everyone is still a little wound up from the holiday season. Remind yourself today of how good it is when you get in the flow…

Monday-Mantra-I-Go-With-The-Flow

Because resistance is futile, I go with the flow.

It makes me happier. And when I’m happier, I feel better. And when I feel better, things just work out better for me. Easier said than done sometimes however, It’s a great practice to get into.

Think about driving down the street. There’s lots of traffic and you’re tired and all you want to do is get home and put your feet up. You sit in traffic and turn the radio up and sing along. You lose yourself in the tunes that are playing.

Then, screaming up behind you comes one of “those people”. They’re in a rush too but they’re frustrated and angry. They weave in and out of traffic, generally causing a fuss and working themselves up into more stress in the processes.

15 minutes down the road, you see that car. sitting at a set of lights, waiting…

Journey of a Modern Mystic: A Life Long Practice

As with any adventure you embark on, as the adventure unfolds, you tend feel like nothing has changed because day to day, the shifts aren’t always obvious. Yet, often when we look back at who we were, where we were when we began, we can see the difference and the changes that have taken place. … Continue reading Journey of a Modern Mystic: A Life Long Practice

Unlimited Belief

If you watch nature, you'll find it doesn't believe in limits. plants grow in cracks in the footpath, trees grow around power lines and through perceived limits. It's easy to see a cage as a cage and assume that there is no way out of it. That cage is only ever self imposed if you … Continue reading Unlimited Belief

Lessons from Mother Nature

It's interesting how a plant can be viewed by a dozen people and be seen differently by each and every one. Yet, regardless of how we look at it, it's own inherent nature still resides there. It remains unchanged. It is not swayed by our perceptions of it. It is not changed by the filters we … Continue reading Lessons from Mother Nature

Buying In To Yourself

If you're always on sale, then you're not receiving what you're worth. And if you're always on sale then do people really appreciate you for your real qualities? What if you didn't sell yourself short? What if your morals couldn't be bought? What if you didn't sell out on your dream? or your gifts? What if … Continue reading Buying In To Yourself

Thank You & You’re Welcome

They're small phrases that sit front of mind for me often these days. You see, I've been doing some work in customer service recently and I've become aware that there is a large number of people out there who think that if they thrown a tantrum, make threats to leave or not recommend someone that they'll … Continue reading Thank You & You’re Welcome
