"How are you?" "Are you ok?" I've been ruminating over these questions lately, the ones that simply fall out of our mouths because they have been programmed into us from such a young age that we do not even think before they pass our lips. I find them quite annoying to be honest. Tell me [...]
Category: Strength in truth
There is nothing to do or say.
There are times when we fall into a well of emotion, and there is nothing to do, or say. No one can make it better. It is what it is. But often, when this is part of our reality, those around us need to reconcile it and make themselves feel better because we do not [...]
I give myself permission to feel. Permission to cry. Permission to heal. Permission to be all that I am, to be someone who is not like them. Permission to know that I am deeply connected, and that this may leave others affected. Wayshower they say, it seems so prestige, but really it brings you down [...]
When all feels lost.
When all feels lost, and you're holding your fears. You're climbing the walls, and falling down in tears. Hold still one moment, close your eyes. And breathe in deeply between those cries. This isn't the truth residing in your heart. It is your ego that is ripping you apart. Come back in to sit with [...]
Your experience is completely valid. All of it.
Often when we try and make someone feel better, we tell them why their situation is actually good, or perhaps we slip gratitude into the conversation because they should be 'grateful'. There is always a worse situation isn't there? The result? Guilt and shame. It's not that we're trying to hurt them, we're actually trying [...]
It’s not about you.
It's not about you. These are words that I have said to myself, to my friends and to my clients on repeat lately. You see in most situations, when something happens and we are knocked a little (or a lot) off centre, often we feel like it is a personal attack, or the situation is [...]
You are the light
Healing and truth.. sometimes it comes out of nowhere and hits you like a sledgehammer. And you have to remind yourself that you asked to be the best you can be. You asked to work through all of the layers that were holding you back. You wanted to be free from whatever was perpetuating the [...]
Doing the work
Recent conversations have led me to ponder the nature of transformation and doing 'the work'. Healing as a definition is the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again. Part of my mission in this life is to be a facilitator of healing, to hold space and share what is needed for self-healing to [...]
You need to feel what you feel through your heart, not your head
You cannot hide from your feelings. It's tempting, and sometimes it actually seems like you've got things sussed and it's the right way to go... but the truth is, it will come back at you. And it can pour out in any way, at any time, and catch you completely unaware. Let me give you [...]
You can’t take it with you
Nothing has the power to keep you where you are unless you give it so.
