Dreams Manifesting into Reality: The Birth of My Yoga Studio and Sacred Earth Sanctuary

Sacred Earth SanctuaryYesterday I posted on Facebook to officially announce the opening of my yoga studio on November 1st. WOW. I actually can’t believe that it’s happening!! Even writing it, it didn’t seem real.

It’s like when you book flights to somewhere you’ve always wanted to go, but it doesn’t feel real until the moment you board the flight. And even then sometimes it’s not until you land in some amazing destination that it really kicks in.

I think that’s what this is going to feel like. Read the rest of this post »

How to Get Unstuck and See Clearly Again

Okay, it’s confession time.How to Get Unstuck and See Clearly Again

In the last two months I’ve managed to get myself completely off track. I’ve been unsettled, I’ve let certain things slip from my daily life, and I’ve felt up in the air. I haven’t been meditating. I haven’t been doing much yoga. I haven’t been blogging. And I’m feeling… stuck.

In my own defense, there’s been a lot going on. That move I talked about in my last blog? Well, it happened! The hubby and I uprooted our lives and drove 1,800kms south to start a new one in Mandurah. Read the rest of this post »

How Alcohol Kills Goals and Dreams (and I’m 18 Months Sober!)

How Alcohol Kills Goals and Dreams (and I’m 18 Months Sober!)I was chatting to the hubby the other night and we were talking about Oktoberfest (not the one in Germany, just a big event coming up in the town we live in). And I had this realisation, which was that I couldn’t even relate to it anymore. That urge to get dressed up, stock up on booze for the after party, sit around drinking, getting blind, staggering home.

It all felt so foreign to me.

Which is funny, because that was exactly the stuff I was getting excited about just 18 months ago. Read the rest of this post »

Mid-Year Goals Update – New Directions, Expanding Desires

Mid-Year Goals Update – New Directions, Expanding DesiresBack in January I wrote a blog about my goals for the coming year, and in the last couple of weeks I’ve felt this desire to revisit it. We’re over halfway through the year now (can you believe it?) and so much has happened! Things that I didn’t see coming, things I didn’t expect, and things that I only ever dreamed about too. I guess that’s life right??

I do think it’s important to make goals, and it’s just as important to look back and see what you once aimed for. Read the rest of this post »

(Self) Love Is All You Need

(Self) Love Is All You NeedThere’s a definite theme happening right now. With my clients, with myself, I’m seeing it everywhere! We’re all failing miserably at prioritising something extremely important – self-love.

I was chatting to a (gorgeous) client of mine yesterday and she was talking about work, doing the long hours, running around after other people and having trouble sleeping at night. So I said to her, “Well, when’s the last time you stopped and allowed yourself some relaxation time?”. And the response was a bit of an embarrassed, “Never…..”. Read the rest of this post »

My Goals, Dreams and Desires for 2015

New Year 2015It might be almost two weeks’ late but… Happy New Year!! I personally love the new year. I love the ritual of shutting the door on the year before, and opening the door on the new possibilities of the year ahead. It’s not like anything actually happens, the sun rises just like every other day, but yet it brings so much hope and optimism and inspiration to people the world over.

It makes you feel like you have a clean slate, you can make a fresh start, and anything that happened before is wiped away. Read the rest of this post »

How Did Your Year Stack Up? 2014 in Review!

How Did Your Year Stack Up 2014 in Review!Can you even believe 2014 is nearly over?? I certainly can’t! Apart from being one of the quickest years in history, this year has also been the most rewarding. For me anyway.

So let’s take a look back at our year, shall we?

When I think about reviewing my year, I’m not thinking about what went on in the world. I’m thinking about what went on in my heart, in my mind, and in my soul. How did I grow, learn evolve, exist? Read the rest of this post »

Getting Really, Really Clear On Your Goals

Getting Really, Really Clear On Your GoalsIt’s time to get really clear on your goals. When it comes to our health, sometimes we think we know what our goal is, but we’re actually looking at it from completely the wrong angle. So then what happens? We don’t reach our goals! Because we don’t really know what they are!

It’s all about understanding your true motives, and your underlying desire, for wanting the thing that you want.

I was thinking about this today when a good friend asked me why I was heading off to do my yoga teacher training. Read the rest of this post »
