Where is it?
The jubilation?- The wonder?- The exploration?
Where is it?-
The fire in your heart, the light in your eyes?
Where is it?-
That part of you that dares to dream…
to imagine all that you want?
Is it squished? Is it non- existent?
Suppressed by the voice of reason in your head?
Where are you, my love?
Where have you gone?-
That spark, that life within you?
When did you leave yourself?
Come back home… come back
And gently rest in here, the deep….
Fight a little for that stirring within
That knows ‘there’s more….’
Stand up when you are on your knees
And say, ‘I am willing…’
And when your demons arise,
Meet them and learn from them.
Dare to know yourself deeply
To better feel when outdated
Ways dictate your life and lead to suffocation-
Squeezing the life out of you….
Leading to swallowing deep truths,
Self sabotage, doubt and lack of confidence…
Staying small, and existing to live only for others…
When here you are, a vibrant spark-
Don’t let the ways of the world dull it.
Live, my sweet…. Live your life with spark and fire.

There is so much more at play. The physical is only the tip of the iceberg. In this video I jump into sacred union within and why it is so important to do this now- to become more connected to your intuition and feel safe doing it. By practicing this within and applying it in your daily life your vibration will rise and you will be in more alignment with your true self. I explain how I do it in my life and the process of direct application.
Sending love to you,
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!!
Life In Lockdown for Mothers- My ‘Go To’ Practice to Prevent Overwhelm
Life Segments to Reflect on:–
* Creativity/ play/ unpaid work
* Mental inc learning, investing, finances, reading
* Physical- workouts, walking, dancing
* Spiritual- meditation, religion, embodiment
* Work- Conditioned in this world, receiving payment for whatever work you do
* Relationships, friendship or romantic
* Alone time/ free time
I came across an article about how the lockdown is impacting women, for those who would love to read it, press here.
You are not alone, keep going!
I yearn for the sweet, crisp wind blowing in my face,
The long dry grass tickling my legs,
The fresh flowers beautifying my gaze,
The scent of the flowers intoxicating my senses
I yearn for deep connected conversation
As I sprawl over pillows on the floor-
Relaxed and open and ignited by soul connection
With dear friends and truth filled words
I yearn for the fire to flare in my body
To burn and dissolve all that I thought myself to be
To entrance me in my dance and my inner gaze
My movement and simultaneous stillness
In that space where there is no separation
Between what is perceived as opposites
Oh, going into the depths of ecstasy
Of opened surrender and movement, of dance…
Deliciously gyrating, and letting go, letting go, letting go…
I yearn to move with others in sacred ancient connection.
And simultaneously to be aware of my depth, witnessing and still.
For those of us who have touched such moments
Are changed forever and left parched dry
For the fluidity of another gathering,
being beautifully vulnerable, supported and
held in unconditional love and humbled in truth.
Traversing the realms and timelessness,
Embodying truth and living it in our lives.
Having a sense of belonging in this crazy world.
Connected, we rise and fall in the life we each lead…
But never, never are we ever alone.
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,
