I believe the way we learn and grow is evolving.

That we’re moving away from the information age with its how to’s, checklists and blue-prints.

That we no longer want to listen to others tell us what we should do or how to live our lives to be “successful”.

Instead, we want to listen to the whispers of our own heart – to forge our own path and live life on our terms.

And so we’re looking to teachers and guides who will help us do that.

Teachers who know they don’t have all the answers but who share their wisdom in a way that has us connect to ourselves, to our own heart and soul.

Guides who gift us golden nuggets, not in a prescriptive “this worked for me and will work for you” way, but in a way that allows us to take what resonates and leave behind that which doesn’t.

Over the past few years my writing has been evolving – it’s personal, it’s raw and there have been many times when I have questioned whether my words are “good enough” – whether people actually want to read them.

But I also know that my writing is the kind I long to read and there’s a depth to it that many people resonate with. So I share openly and with love.

I hope you enjoy reading my words and you evolve and grow as a result.

I can never know what’s best for you – only you can know that – but I hope my stories and insights will support you in following the path that lights you up and fills your heart and soul with joy.

Much love,

National Stress Awareness Day

Today is National Stress Awareness Day! I awoke to posts on my Facebook feed asking what steps we take to manage stress. Stress has become so much a part of our lives that managing stress is considered to be very important skill to learn. But whilst I’ve seen many...

How our commitments can exacerbate a “not good enough” story

In the personal development world it is often recommended that we publicly announce our commitments – maybe not to the whole world, but certainly in a nurturing group who will hold us accountable and support us when we fall down. I joined a group in June to support me...

Ever get that “I hate my life” feeling?

Do you ever get that feeling? That you hate your life? Or is it just me? Because right now that’s EXACTLY how I feel. And no, don’t worry I’m not going to give you a sob story about my woes and precisely what it is I hate about my life! Instead I’m going to share some...

To complain or not to complain … That is the question

Well, it’s been a while since I blogged! I took most of August off and it's taken me longer to get back into the swing of things than I anticipated. I spent a wonderful 2 weeks in Corfu where it felt like time stopped. No emails, very little Facebook, just lots of...

Calling all Rebels, Misfits, and Rule Breakers

Do you ever feel that you’re the only one who thinks a certain way? That if you tell people what you actually believe and how you actually feel they’ll cast you out quicker than you can say “but that’s not what I meant”? That in a group situation you always feel that...

The “great to be alive” feeling

Imagine waking up each and every morning with a feeling of excitement and joy bubbling up inside of you. Knowing that today is going to be amazing – no matter what happens. You know the feeling – the one you get at the start of your holidays, on the eve of a big...

I am not a “work in progress”. Here’s why …

Something that has been bugging me for a while is this concept that we’re a “work in progress”. Every time I hear someone say it I want to scream “no we’re not”. We’re an extraordinary, beautiful human being. How can we possibly be a “work in progress”? When we look...

Five Lives! An Invitation

Getting the clarity that Gateway to Freedom is such an extraordinary, amazing, life-changing, transformational journey (of course I’m not at all biased) has given me a surge of inspiration -not to mention confidence. And so to share more and give you a sneak preview...

Full Circle

So it’s the middle of July – over halfway through the year! In just a few days the school summer holidays begin!  I’m not sure how manic it’s going to be.   I’ve been trying to get organised, but liaising with lots of different parents to sort out dates and activities...

A new take on “You are not broken”

This morning as I was going through my emails I read a line which stopped me in my tracks.  It was: “You are not broken. There is nothing to fix.” It was the exact same thing I have been saying. But this morning as I read those words, I realised that they’re not true....

Tiny cog in a big wheel

As I’ve been on this journey of transformation, what is becoming clearer and clearer is that I must write. Write with my heart, write with love and write often. God gave me the gift of communication. It matters not if I like it. It is of little consequence whether my...

Time to start busting a few spiritual myths

Over the past few years I’ve been questioning everything – including many of the personal development and spiritual mantras that we learn and take as gospel. One of these is: How you do anything is how you do everything I first heard this way back early on in my...
