Mother in Lockdown- A Share: Tips That Are Working For Me

Hello,

What crazy times we are finding ourselves in, during lockdown. I took some time in the chaos that is my household at the moment and looked into ‘how’ I know what I need to do now to support myself. I seem to be less stressed in this situation than I anticipated. I had put it down to my ‘training’ in different modalities, and yes, it helped, but it wasn’t it. I just wasn’t sure. Then I grabbed a pen and paper and wrote. Out of this writing appeared my ‘go to’ that occurs in my head when I figure out what it is I need for myself in the moment I realise I am not in a good way and I have two children in my space watching me, being with me, interacting with me…….If I’m not in a good space, they aren’t in a good space and all hell can break loose! When I feel un balanced or like something is missing I put

Here it is, for deeper info and a chat with me explaining how I work with it and giving real life examples, watch the video!!

How to Use the Mind to Empower

Hello!
Please have a watch of my latest video which goes into how we can give our power away to others. This is a practical way to use awareness in difficult situations. I show you how to notice when you are triggered, take it in, and breathe to open up the mind to give us space to be able to respond rather than react.
I hope you find this helpful.

All my love,
Elise

Feeling Your Inner World (Guided Meditation)

Hello!
I hope everyone is going as well as can be for you. I wanted to share here that I had this overwhelming need to create a video today, but I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a talk, or guided meditation, or something else (who knows, I just get creative)! I do believe that as much as I share what feels so good in my body to share via recording (or in an in person group when lock down isn’t on), I somehow get something from it as well. Sometimes I get an energy boost from doing what I love. Or I get the creative ‘bug’, and start writing after the video where it’s like my fingers tap to some invisible rhythm and the words become the melody, or I become calm and open and spacious within. The latter occurred today. I so enjoyed sharing a meditation that I apparently needed to do myself! I love how things work, beyond what my little mind can ever imagine!! If you consider that we are all some how connected in this soup of energy, then hopefully this recorded meditation will help you, too.

All my love,
Elise

You’re in a Marriage. You’ve Outgrown it. What do you do?

There are so many aspects to look at when you feel like you’ve outgrown your marriage. In this video, I explore the sign posts to step through to see if the relationship can begin again, or if it simply is not in the highest for either one of you. Use everything in your life to grow, to know thyself. Please don’t throw this opportunity away to learn more about yourself and what aligns and what doesn’t.

With the Sound of Music song wafting into my mind- “Climb every mountain, board every stream, follow every rainbow….” makes me feel that perhaps it’s best to get your learnings from your husband/ wife now, then to continue the patterns with someone else? If, of course, both are prepared to a certain extent to do this.

Please have a watch of my latest YouTube Video on my brand new channel: ‘Spiritual Growth and Motherhood’.

With all my love and hope,
Elise
