What a difference a week makes


This time last week I was in the coronary care ward at St Vincent’s hospital.


I had been taken there by ambulance after going to the nearest medical centre with severe chest pains.


As it was Easter when I was admitted to the hospital I had to wait until the Tuesday to have the extra tests needed to check for any damage or obstruction to my heart.


It was a tense time waiting.


Meditating and ThetaHealing is what kept me sane… and focusing on a positive outcome


The ‘all clear’ was a huge relief.


It’s one thing to think that your heart is OK and a completely different one to have that confirmed.


But something happened to me while I was in hospital, and since


For the last few days I have been clearing out things.


Things that have been hiding in the back of the cupboards, unseen but lurcking in the dark, just had to be hunted out and removed.


This drive to jettison has come from inside.


It is not a conscious mental decision that I’ve made, it is coming from somewhere deep inside me.


It’s as if I have to rid myself of anything that I no longer need in my life now.


I don’t consider myself to be a hoarder, I am pretty good at moving things on. But this time the outfits I wore to my two daughters’ weddings have been moved on.


This wasn’t about clutter. It was about shining light into the hidden corners of my cupboards.


It was about illuminating the dark. Shining a light into the dark corners of my life.


I want to see empty space.


Instead of things crammed and jammed in, I want to see empty space … in my wardrobe, the pantry, the fridge.


I can find things easily.


There is nothing in my home that is holding me back. Keeping me stuck in the past.


And where there is space, there is room. Room for something new


I can move forward easily now without having to drag all the clutter with me


Easter is always a time for huge changes, a time of rebirth and renewal


I realised that this wasn’t about clutter.


It was about shining light into the hidden corners of my cupboards.


It was about illuminating the dark. Shining a light into the dark corners of my life.


What difference can a week make?


Huge energetic shifts and the inclusion of an amazing new supplement. Stay tuned 🙂

The importance of loving yourself

“The fundamental problem that most patients face is the inability to love themselves.” Bernie Siegel MD

I remember reading his book Love, Medicine and Miracles back at the end of the ’80’s and it resonated so deeply with me, something shifted inside.

Women of my generation have been taught to be perfectionists

We were taught that we need to be all things to all people

We were taught that to do something for ourselves,

to think of ourself was selfish … the very worst sin you could commit it seemed

Then you had people screaming that women can have it all

You could have children, be a mother AND have a high powered job

You could do anything and everything a man could do

What happened as a result of those high expectations was a generation of women who exhausted their bodies and their spirits trying to pack in all that they thought they were supposed to do

Be the 1950’s housewife with the perfect home & perfectly behaved children
and at the same time compete with men in the corporate world.

What an unsustainable, insurmountable goal that was!

In order to attempt to juggle all those balls in the air women had to sublimate their own needs to the needs of others.

When that happens our emotions have to shout louder and louder in order to get out attention

and because there is no time or space to focus on ourselves, plus we’ve been taught that to do so is wrong
thoughts and emotions get pushed further and further down
and that’s when the physical symptoms begin

[I read that martyrs experience chronic resentment – that was so me when my children were younger!]

When you look at this very simplified explanation you can see the problems this created,

both in my generation and the generations to follow.

Each generation tries to rebalance the wrongs they felt the previous generation inflicted upon them

I see the same things manifesting in my clients,
each generation having their own set of issues
and most of them say they feel stuck.

At the crux of all of it is the need
to be seen and heard, to be validated and acknowledged

and how quick the turnaround and change begins when that happens!

Focusing on yourself is not selfish,
experiencing pleasure is not selfish,
they are both crucial for vibrant health!

Money is the Root of All Evil …

Did you hear that when you were growing up? Perhaps you heard ….. ‘Money doesn’t grow on trees’, ‘we can’t afford it’, ‘I don’t know how we’re going to pay these bills’, ‘you need money to make money’, ‘you have to work hard to earn

Our body is always talking to us?

Sadly, most of us don’t listen.   Or we only listen when we are brought to our knees.   I admit that even though I have known this for a long time and have been teaching it for the past twenty years I don’t always
