How to successfully implement intentions and goals into your life

How many times have you started out your new year with the promise to yourself that this is the year that you are going to do all of those “things” that you know are good for you.

You know those things such as implementing daily spiritual practices, meditation, journalling, exercising, healthy eating, self development, being kinder to yourself and the list goes on.

I have often felt like that crazy “Gonna” person!

I’m gonna do this and I’m gonna to that but then you never really do any of it. It’s so embarrassing and I get so frustrated with myself at times because everyone else around me knows that I said I was “gonna” do it and I haven’t.  It’s hard to hide your inner “gonna” when you are constantly telling everyone what you are going to do isn’t it. 

On some level you would actually think that telling everyone what your plans or intentions are would somehow keep you accountable, but we all know that it doesn’t, we just avoid making eye contact with those people in the hopes that they won’t be triggered to remember what we said that we were going to do and then they won’t ask us “have you don’t that yet’.

This also activates within us a sense of shame, of wanting to hide out just a little because we feel like some great big giant phoney. 

So to assist you in avoiding feeling like a phoney, having to avoid eye contact with your friends and allow you to leave your home I have discovered some really useful tips that help you stay on track with your intentions. 

  1. What is your intention?  Be specific here and keep it simple.
  2. How can you measure this? How will you know when you have accomplished your intention? What needs to happen?
  3. What does it mean to you? Why is it important? What is your WHY for wanting to do this?
  4. Imagine how you will feel, what you will see, what you will here when you have implemented your intention. What will the ripple effect into all other areas of your life be once you have implemented your intention?
  5. Is it realistic?  Eg – If you are completely tone deaf is it reasonable that you will be singing in clubs in 1 month? Is your intention good for you, your family, your community and the Planet? Is it for you Highest Good and the Highest good of others?
  6. What is the time frame that you are going to implement this within?
  7. What needs to happens that you know that you have achieved it?
  8. AGAIN – See it, feel it, hear it, feel it, know it to be SO.
  9. See yourself as though you are actually in your body successfully implementing and achieving your goals/intentions.
  10. Each week revisit your intentions and your goals to be sure that you are keeping in alignment with what you have been intuitively guided to implement into your life.

Before you know it beautiful one you will be standing with your head proudly raised deliberately looking your friends in their eyes with the biggest grin on your face because you are now no longer a “gonna” chick.

You are an empowered successful being who is living your life to the fullest.

The greatest feeling is that of having achieved what you have set out to do for yourself.




Clutter and Energy

Let’s talk about clutter and energy.

It makes sense that when your house is clean it allows energetically for more to flow into your life.

This is because It creates space in your life, your house is your outer reflection of what is going on in your mind internally.

When you clean there is a significant shift, it’s like you’re reorganising things in your mind.

As you’re decluttering and as you’re putting things into order – you’re actually putting things into order in your mind.

Your mind is your house and it needs the attention in order to live peacefully.

What is your Soul yearning to Express?

From as far back as I can remember my life has always been driven by some form of yearning.
A deep inner knowing that there was something that I was meant to be doing that I just couldn’t quite put my finger on.
This yearning has led me down many roads throughout my life, psychic mediumship development, healing, understanding the human psyche on a deeper level and meditation. All with the hope of being able to put my finger on what it is that I’m supposed to do. 
There seems to be within all of us a feeling that there is something that we have forgotten to do, you know that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you leave home and you can’t remember if you turned the iron off or not. 
A sense from deep within you that you said that you would do something but for the life of you, you just can’t seem to remember what it was.
What I have come to know and understand, and please note I do not know all, is there is no way that the story of the Universe and all of the mysteries that it holds can be known, are these few things.
We are more than just a physical lump of meat living this human experience, I have come to know and understand that we are infinite Beings who carry within us a spark of Divinity that connects us to All That Is. 
What is All That Is? It is many names for the one energy source, Divine Intelligence, God/Consciousness, Divine Mind, Christ Consciousness and so on, it is the Source that is the whole of this incredible Universe in which we are life forms that reside on a Planet that is orbiting through space.
It has long been believed that our Soul is an essence that is housed or contained within our Physical bodies.
When I heard this description from Neal Donald Walsch’s “Conversations with God” book it resonated with me on such a deep level.
The Soul is the essence of the Divine that holds that body together, the Soul cannot be contained, it cannot be limited and it can never be harmed as it is eternal, it always has been and it will always be now and forever. 
If the Soul can never be harmed then what is with all of the suffering that we have all endured throughout our lives.
This has really made me wonder about our human conditioning and our suffering, if the Soul can never be harmed then the pain that we experience is in some way a choice that we have made before arriving here. 
The Soul has come forth into this incarnation with the clear intent of having a human experience, an experience that will allow it the opportunity for growth, opportunities at each event, each pain, each hurt, each disappointment, judgement and criticism to remember who we really are. 
More than 15 years ago I saw this saying “We are not Human Beings having a Spiritual Experience, We are Spiritual Beings having a Human experience.” I have only just thrown out the cutting of this that I had, it was tattered and curled up around the edges as I have carried it with me wherever I have gone for that long.
Each time that I have felt disillusioned with this life I would take out that piece of paper and really consider what the essence of that meant to me.
If I am a Spiritual Being then I would have chosen to come into this life with intention, I would have gone from a realm of absolute unconditional love and unity, knowing that I was bringing all of the tools that I could ever need within me to carry out the mission that my life journey was to fulfil. 
As I am sure many of you have asked before my burning questions for such a long time have been “What is my Purpose” What am I here for” and “What is it that I am meant to be “doing.”
Each of us come into this human form with the orchestrated experiences that will provide us with the perfect environment to remember our gifts, our compassion, our love and our joy.
You have come into this life with the desire to express the voice of your Soul.
This may be to raise awareness for those that are less fortunate than yourself.
It may be that you have gone through a traumatic life event and you have the burning desire to be of assistance to those going through a similar journey.
You may feel the driving force to speak out for those who are too weak to speak for themselves.
It may be to bring the importance of looking after our Planet to anyone who will listen. 
You may have within you the urge to release your creativity into the world. 
Bringing children up in a loving and safe environment so that they can be free to discover who they really are.
Treating people with kindness and respect regardless of their religion, race, colour and sexual orientation. 
Perhaps you have the knowing within you that every person deserves to be heard and you patiently sit for hours and allow others to purge to you. 
The list is literally endless.
Your Soul has a voice that wishes to be expressed, your only requirement is to get quiet enough so that you can feel and hear the message that is constantly being streamed to you.
Your Soul is patiently waiting for you to remember its existence, to remember that you are more than you think that you are, to remember that the Divine Intelligence of All That Is, is also within you.
The truest essence of who you are can never die nor can it ever be harmed.  
When you raise your awareness to that level it seems more probable to you then that perhaps the fear that you feel in going within, in expressing yourself, in asking yourself the big questions is unfounded and can be transcended.
Here are some questions that you can use to assist in connecting to and hearing what it is that your Soul wishes to express.
  1. If I could be the voice of my Soul what would I say ………………
  2. If I could feel the essence of my Soul what sensations would I feel in my body ………….
  3. What is the one thing that I would do if there were no limits……………….
  4. If I could change one thing in the world what would that be…………………..
  5. What am I not allowing myself to hear right now?
The greatest connections that I have felt to my Soul have been through meditation.
When you allow yourself the time to sit in quiet, focusing on your breath, music or an affirmation, after a period of time the mental mind becomes quiet, the thoughts slow down and from between the thoughts you begin to become aware of a presence, a presence that is not you, a presence that is not your thoughts, your past or your future it is just there waiting patiently for you.
It is from within this space that the voice of your Soul is the loudest, be sure to have a pen and paper handy so that you can write your questions above, the act of writing also distracts the mental mind and allows the insights and messages of your Soul to flow through. 

The Journey of Healing Ourselves

My story started in full strength at 21, although for all my life I have had a huge insight. The drive within me was just as profound. I felt within me this push and drive and real essence that there’s something that I am supposed to be doing other than this, and I just don’t know what it is.

One of the greatest insights was recognising that our only responsibility is to heal ourselves.

It is so important to work on our own self-healing and getting out of our own way.
