2016 – A Manifesto

manifesto thumb

Keep it light – value each beautiful, painful, joyful moment¬†as a masterpiece of the Universe. Connect then release – share ideas but don’t depend on anyone’s opinion or seek permission to be you. Seek wisdom – from teachers, teachings and friends, but above all, from within. Your heart center is your soul’s only true guidance system. Play – laugh, dance, sing and then do more. Let go – of struggle against change. You will never, ever know what is coming … Keep reading…

Why you need to do The Thing you need to do

Start before you're ready

You know The Thing. The Thing you day dream about, fantasize about and secretly wish for. The Thing you are afraid to say out loud. You need to do it. Now listen up: We’re All Scared. We are all afraid of putting ourselves out there, of starting something new, of expressing ourselves truthfully. We are all afraid of judgement and rejection and ridicule. And selfishly, that is why I need you to do The Thing you need to do, like, … Keep reading…

Allowing Abundance

waterfall Ty

I’ve been thinking about abundance lately; about what it actually means, what my relationship is to it and how I can align myself with an attitude of it. A-bun-dance (noun) a very large quantity of something. When I reflect on my own journey with abundance, I can see the shifts I’ve made in my attitude to money and possessions and in my relationship with myself. For most of my life I have operated out of the idea of lack. Growing … Keep reading…

You’ve already made it. Here’s Why!

Ecstatic Motion

About a month ago I was struggling with feelings of ‘not enoughness,’ and I emphasize the word ‘struggle’ because what is so uncomfortable about negative emotion is that it is simply not natural for us to feel that way. This is a new revelation for me. It’s amazing the difference a month makes (or a day, or a moment), because I came out of that struggle by embracing what is true: that we have all made it by very virtue … Keep reading…

Transcend

Transcend

#soulshots is a series I’m creating over the summer as an expression of my inner journey. #Soulshots provide immunity to fear and guard against the suffering which arises when we forget we are made from and for Love. You are not your past. You are not your parents. You are not what you have done or what has been done to you. You are none of those things. You are not your sadness, or even your happiness. You are not … Keep reading…

Let it go.

Let it go.

“The spiritual life is never one of achievement. It is always one of letting go.” – Anonymous What are you hanging on to? What burdens your waking hours and haunts your dreams? The things we hang on to change the course of our lives. They inform our decisions, our interactions, relationships and attitudes. The more we hang on to, the less freedom we have. Letting go isn’t always as easy as saying it. We hang on to things that we … Keep reading…

Allow joy

Allow-joy

#soulshots is a series I’m creating over the summer as an expression of my inner journey. #soulshots increase immunity to fear and protect against the suffering which arises when we forget we are made from and for love. Allow joy. Allow it to bubble up within you; to express itself through you. Don’t block it, numb it or run away from it. You are worthy of joy. The pure, simple joy of life. It is there, if you allow it. … Keep reading…

Be Open

Soulshots

Over the coming months I’ll be creating a series of #soulshots which are expressions of my inner journey. These simple yet powerful messages arise out of my various practices of meditation and spiritual seeking. Sharing is a vital part of my practice and this is one way in which I’m doing that. #Soulshots are ‘shots’ of divine wisdom for the soul which increase our immunity to fear; providing protection from the suffering which arises when we are blocked from the … Keep reading…

Let it be.

let it be soulshot

I participated in a live online meditation the other day. I’ve been meditating every day for over two months but knew I needed something new to take it to the next level. The thing about meditation as a practice is that you never arrive anywhere. You gain insight and understanding, sure, but the practice itself IS the true destination. It’s the perfect antidote to my results driven, impatient personality. Who knew practicing something would be the whole journey? No set … Keep reading…

Choose Love

choose love

Yesterday was World Refugee Day. I didn’t know that as I began my morning ritual of intentional practice (a fancy way of saying I sit still and think about love, invite it into my heart and ask it to guide my thoughts, decisions and actions for the day). Before I even asked anything, these thoughts arose in me: “Love. Let go and Love. Be filled with and go forth into the world, healing as you do (are healed). Know that … Keep reading…
