My latest inspired words:

There was once a time, long, long ago (haha) when I would spend the early hours of the morning in blissful silence, walking to meet the sunrise at the beach, meditating and journaling peacefully and crafting up my monthly personal altar. This sacred alone time was my secret weapon for navigating emotions and giving myself time and space to heal and listen to my inner guidance.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width"...

Every time I think about the birth of my son in March 2018, my whole body swells with pride. Not just because I found his birth incredibly empowering (and activating), but also because it punctuated my birth experiences so perfectly. You see, this is my last baby (if I have any say in the matter!) and if I was to cast an umbrella over all three of my births, I can see that my initiation into motherhood has followed a pattern not unlike that of the heroic journey. One of crisis and loss (my first birth - a traumatic miscarriage),...

  When it comes to spiritual and emotional growth, triggers, upsets and dense emotions used to side-swipe me like some kind of football tackle, taking me down for the count at a moments notice, often not emerging for days, weeks (months)! I’d find myself confused, overwhelmed and unable to see my way clear.   But recently something has shifted.   From confusion and overwhelm to clarity and focus, my inner resources have (finally) developed to a point where I can go deep, do the work and come back to normal functioning without getting completely pulled under.   It made me think of all the practices I have...

  This post tells the story of the events that took place as I was preparing and launching my project Altars to Self. You can read part 2 here.   New Life It was early July 2017. I was in my office working away on the launch of my first eBook Altars to Self – a project that had been in my orbit in one form or another for over 3 years. I was just a few weeks away from releasing it. A niggling thought popped into my head - I was five days late for my period. No big deal. I’d been late like this...

  This post continues to tell the story of the events that took place as I was preparing and launching my project Altars to Self. You can read part 1 here.   Homecoming Two weeks later, a few days after the ceremony and wake, our girl and I boarded a plane back to Australia. My man would stay in Japan for a further 6-weeks to support his Mum and to wade through the masses of paperwork involved with death in Japan.   By this stage I was spent. 9 weeks pregnant with epic fatigue and blood sugar crashes, the heat and humidity of a Japanese summer sucking the...

Setting New Year intentions is one thing. Feeling them in your body is even better. Having them symbolically represented in physical reality via your Personal Altar is truely taking it to the next level. A personal altar is a beautiful and soulful way to stay connected to the workings of your inner world; it helps you to stay focused and connected to your spiritual and emotional unfolding. It's a sacred constellation of energy that you create with meaningful objects that reflects back to you your own inner guidance, your most exquisite potential and your own unique beauty.   I like to think of a personal...

Hands down, one of the most powerful things that has helped me stay connected to my vision for the new year has been receiving a guiding image from my Soul. My guiding image first came through spontaneously in January 2016, when I allowed myself a whole month to dream into what I wanted to create that year. This unique and highly charge image allowed me to continually realign myself to my soul path throughout the year. Traditional goal setting is something I have resisted a lot over the years. When it comes to the simple act of writing a list of things I want and then declaring it, I just clam...

It's January 1 and you haven't set intentions yet for 2017. *Cue panic* Argh! Wait! But everyone else has!! I'm going to miss out on the momentum of the New Year if I don't get it done NOW. I need to make sure I do it 'right'. Feeling the pressure? Well, my love, can I just say, there is absolutely no need to stress. There's plenty of time for you to begin dreaming into the New Year and January is a perfect time to do just that. Here's why: The Chinese New Year begins on February 4 Each year in the Chinese calendar is governed...
