I believed I was an empowered woman

I had worked through so much ‘stuff’I thought the fact I’ve had so many birthdays and have done so much work on myself, so many workshops, books, courses, that I had come to a place of empowerment able to stand in my own sovereignty.

For the past twenty years I have taught courses about it and helped clients take back and stand in their power.

But a little voice was whispering there was still something I needed to do.I’m okay where I am, I countered, I’ve done enough.

Oh, how the Universe loves a challenge!

So in order to prove there was still more I had to do the Universe brought me to my knees.

The one thing I was proudest of, my greatest achievement, was shattered and everything I thought I believed was in tatters.

After recovering from the shock I realised I can’t change other people, I can only change myself and what I do from here is up to meI have a choice, as always . . .and my choice is how I respond to the situation I find myself in.

Do I rise above it and look at the big picture from my spiritual self’s perspective?

Or do I stay in my small minded human self, feel sorry for myself and blame other people for the situation I find myself in?

So I allowed my human self to run the show for a few days

I wallowed in all those human emotions, knowing full well there was a time limit if I allowed them to flow through me

I knew that my spiritual self was stronger and that given time to process what had taken place I would be able to view the situation from a loving, forgiving space.

After a few days I have arrived at that space of being able to see the big picture and what I discovered was …

Finally, I had completely stepped into my power, my sovereignty,standing in my true authentic self.

Whatever the outcome turns out to be, I am at peace with it..

I have reached the space where I can proudly place my crown upon my head and step fully into my sovereignty 👑

Now standing in that blissful, centred place I am ready to lead my tribe from a place of empowered sovereignty

So that regardless of what it happening ‘out there’ they can stand in their sovereignty as well! 👑

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

Gratitude is an Attitude

A funny story from a long time ago …

When I first heard about gratitude, years and years ago, I thought

that if I was grateful for what I had in that moment that meant I would be stuck there and never have anything better!

And because that was my belief at the time I didn’t carry out the act of gratitude for many many years.

Definitely not a smart move

I was living in Sydney at the time and wanted desperately to move out of the rat race to somewhere quieter that would feed my soul.

Twenty years ago next month the dream I had held onto for so long came to fruition

and we moved to Kiama, the best decision we ever made!

Before that eventuated I had to sit in the situation I was in at the time and have gratitude for all that I had in my life then and there

I had let go of the belief I’d had such a tight grip on that to be grateful in the moment meant I would be stuck there

So not true!

In fact it was the reverse

Once you begin to have gratitude for what you have in your life then more things start to flow to you

The most important thing is to know what it is you wish to manifest in your life

Most people when asked what they want in their life come up blank

We all have a great long list of all the things we don’t want and nothing on the ‘do want’ list

So what happens is we are focused on the ‘don’t want’ and surprise, surprise that’s what keeps on showing up!!

The lesson here is to have gratitude for everything you have in your life now (just look around you) and focus on what you do want in your life.

Gratitude is a powerful manifestation tool.

TIP: if you have a list of what you don’t want it is easy to flip it to what you do want
