Are you Listening to your Body?

Why is it that we have this bullshit belief that we have to soldier on no matter how badly we may be feeling.

You could literally be dripping with sweat high with fever and still you will say to yourself “suck it up and get on with it”.

I really do feel that as women (sorry guys) we often feel the weight of responsibility with some underlying need to prove that we are superwomen and can be all and do all regardless of how this will impact ourselves.

Your body is the hub of your intuition, that’s why you will say you have a gut feeling or that something doesn’t feel right.

This is your body sending you signals to let you know that something is out of alignment and usually it is an area of your life that is no longer serving you.

Maybe you have been saying to yourself for some time that you really need to find a job that you feel good about going to everyday instead of feeling nauseous and filled with anxiety.

Perhaps you have been getting the signal from your stomach that particular kinds of foods don’t agree with you, yet as a whole we take a pill that allows us to continue to eat those foods instead of taking notice of what our bodies are trying to tell us.

The list is endless really.

Over time if you continue to ignore those intuitive nudges that your body is sending to you it will get louder and more intense.

You will begin to get aches and pains in your body, your nervous system will begin to play havoc and worse case your body will create an illness in order for you to stop and listen.

This has happened to me just recently.

I fell into the story that I have a responsibility and people are relying on me – Which of course is true and what I have had ever so lovingly placed in front of my face by my body and the Universe is not at the expense of myself or my own wellbeing.

I have been pushing through caught up in the busyness of all that I have done this year both within my own work and in my personal life.

I had been ignoring the gentle nudge from my body that I needed to take some serious time out, to completely unplug and to settle more fully into the present.

So my body first took my voice so that I wouldn’t be able to talk for long periods, then it gave me a cough so I wouldn’t be able to fully do the work I needed to do, then of course it gave me the body aches so that I would not want to physically do anything…

Thankfully this is not life threatening and as I give my body the nurturing, space and time out that it needs, it will recover fully and quickly.

The reason that I am sharing this with you is because I am listening to my body, I am giving my body my undivided attention and providing it with all that it is asking for so that I can continue to give to others all that they need.

What are the intuitive messages that you are currently ignoring that your body is trying to get your attention with?

I recommend taking 15 minutes to just sit and be fully present with your body.

Start by focusing your attention on your breath, following it all the way in and all the way out of your body, noticing gently where in your body your breath flows to.

Gently bring your attention to your heart, breathing into your heart centre.

Bring to mind something in your life that you feel deeply grateful for.

Now move your awareness to the tips of your toes and your feet, notice the sensations in your body as your move your awareness all the way slowly to the top of your head and back down to your toes.

Ask your body what it wants you to know right now, ask your body what it needs from you and what action it would have you take.



You are Greater than Your Fears

OMG – I walked on fire!

I literally walked across hot coals that were over 650 degrees Celsius and I was terrified. 

So many of us live a life that is ruled by fear. 

Fear of what people will say, fear of rejection, fear of not being loved, fear of failing, fear of being ridiculed, fear of making decisions, fear of success, fear of being hurt, fear of things that go bump in the night. 

I know that there are many of you reading this right now that can totally relate. 

Many years ago I learned an acronym for fear. 

F – Fantasied
E – Events
A- Appearing
R – Real 

What does this mean?? 

Anxiety/Fear is when we imagine a fearful event occurring in the future. 

As a parent I have done this many times with my kids, imagining events happening to them while they were out, and OMG, let’s not even get started with what my mind created when they first started driving.  

It hasn’t happened, it’s not real, yet we are creating this scenario in our minds and as the unconscious mind does not know the difference between what is real or imagined, your nervous system responds as though it is indeed happening and happening right now. 

And if we are all honest the majority of what we imagined, the stress and anxiety that we have placed on our bodies, was for nothing because the worst that we imagined never came to be. 

In my excitement, I did try and share this with some people, and I have to say that they were not overly impressed with my simplification of their fear. 

I get it though, my life has been one ball of fear after another and it led to extreme anxiety and stress.

If fear has been your go to for most of your life, if it has appeared to you as your great protector, then of course the fear of letting your fear go would be very real because then who are you without your fear.  What reasons would you then have for not living life to the fullest. 

Fear can feel like the warm cozy coat that you pop on in the middle of winter, it wraps around you, it keeps you warm and it keeps you safe from the outside world. 

Fear also keeps you limited, it keeps you in a dead end job that is sucking the life out of your soul, it keeps you in toxic or abusive relationships, it keeps you single, it keeps you isolated, you keeps you in one place.

Fear sees your potential for growth and creativity and convinces you that this isn’t for you because of XY&Z. 

Fear holds your heart trapped within self imposed iron gates so that it can never feel pain.

Fear watches your dreams and hopes sail off into the sunset locked up in a solid gold treasure chest.

Fear tells you that you aren’t worthy of a loving relationship. 

Fear convinces you that security long term in a job that does not make you happy is safe.

Fear shows you all of the reasons why it’s not safe to trade outside of this country.

Fear gives you all of the outs that you could ever need, all of the reasons why you can’t. 

Fear my friend is not your friend.

Fear is your jailor. 

My motto for the last 6 years has been to feel the fear and do it anyway. 

Which is to say that I only really decided to fully live this miraculous gift of life that I have been given 6 years ago. 

The moment that I fully recognised that there was more to life than just existing was the moment my life began to change forever.

When you desire change and it becomes more than just a wish a hope or a dream and becomes a must, want and a need, then those chains of fear begin to loosen their grip. 

Each time that you choose to face your fear and take action being prepared to accept whatever the outcome may be is a step closer to fulfilment that you become.

As you take each step the fear that prevented you in the first place recedes in the face of your determination and courage. 

You see your fear is like a hungry bear, the more that you feed it, the more of your fear it begins to crave and the larger that it becomes.

Each time that I have faced a fear I had the belief and the fear that I would not be able to do what I was asking of myself.  I was afraid that I would fall flat on my face or make a fool of myself. 

Each time that I have successfully completed a goal that I have set for myself it has felt amazing, euphoric and freeing, and the thought has always been, OMG what was I worrying about.

None of the horrendous outcomes that I had dreaded have ever occurred.

So, this leads me to my most recent leap of faith and facing my fears. 

While at a Tony Robbins event we had the chance to overcome our fears and do the walk of fire. 

Now I will not lie to you, I had already started to prepare myself by telling people that I may or may not actually do it and I was going to wait and see how I felt in the moment and then decide. 

My fear was really starting to creep in, so I began visualising in earnest myself successful completing, in this I kept seeing myself jumping up and down in celebration and excitement at the other end. 

Then came the time to leave the building and head outside to where all of the fire pits had been set up, still not knowing what I was going to do I took off my shoes and socks, rolled up my jeans and followed the crowd chanting all the way to the sounds of drums.

As we were lining up, I happened to see one of the attendants stoking the red hot coals and flames coming out from beneath – now that just added fuel to the fear that was bubbling away inside of me.

Closer and closer I came to my turn to go, all the time calling in all of my team of Spirit and Angels to surround me, then I had a visual of all of the gorgeous people that I work with, my friends and family and in that moment I felt the awfulness of how I would feel if I didn’t do this.

This honestly felt terrible to me, in that moment I saw how disappointed and upset I would be at myself if I let fear control me. 

I knew that the rest of my time at the event would be filled with regret if I chose not to go ahead with the walk. 

The fire you see is the metaphor of overcoming fear in our lives.

It represented really, if you look at it, fear at its highest form. 

So, as it came time for me to go, I thought what the hell, the worst that can happen is I might have a couple of blisters on the bottom of my feet, so be it, I’ll survive.

I took a deep breath, my heart beating 10000 miles an hour, feeling absolutely terrified and took my first step, I took the leap of faith, chanted my mantra and made it safely to the other side feet fully intact and whole.

There are no words to fully describe the elation and euphoria that this moment in time filled me with. 

I have never felt so empowered and liberated as I did in that moment. 

What that one action installed in me, what it reinforced within my entire Being is that there is nothing that I cannot do when I put my mind, focus and intention to it.

This will serve as a reminder moving forward in my life that no matter how real the terror, no matter how big the bear, no matter how outside of my comfort zone I may feel, I have the power within me to rise above it and shine.

So, for you who may see fear as the iron gates or the brick walls that you have no way of going over or getting around I say to you, grab a shovel and start digging your way underneath. 

Fear is the greatest illusion wrapped up in limiting beliefs and self doubt.

You are greater than your fears and you have the right to live this life as fully as you choose.

As you face your fear it no longer has power over you.

As you face your fear and succeed you free yourself from the chains that have bound you. 

As you face your fear and open your heart and your mind to the abundance of opportunity that life has on offer for you.

My New Studio Magic

My hubby and I seriously downsized when we moved to Phillip Island and as I said goodbye to my old beautiful space I began to feel the limitations of my new small space.

Also, my husband got tired of watching me move everything from my small room into the spare room to make space each time that I ran a class or had a client. 

Building another space out the front of our home has been on the cards for about 12 months now and in that time I have visualised what it is going to look like, what colours I am going to have and more importantly how the studio will feel once it is completed.

I am even going to have my beautiful Reiki Practitioners along for a ceremony so that we can invoke together the presence of Angels to bless and activate the studio. 

Earlier in the year while at Byron Bay I visited the very gorgeous Crystal Castle. While there I was in awe of the work that they have done with all of their incredible and very beautiful crystals.  All of the buildings and the pathways are lined with magical crystals. This has inspired me with the idea of having my new healing space also filled with the magic of crystals. 

My mum told me recently that when I was a child I was always collecting rocks and I had one favourite rock that I carried with me everywhere and I even slept with it.

I love working intuitively with crystals, to me they seem to call to me whenever I walk into a shop or when I am preparing for a client.

For me personally I prefer to work intuitively with crystals.

To do this I always calm my mind by focusing on my breath and placing my attention on my heart.

Then I ask who would like to work with me.

I say who because each of the crystals seem to have a personality of their own and as you tune in this way you will be connecting with the crystal whose properties you or your clients are most in need of. 

Over the last 3 months I have been gathering all of the crystals that I have been intuitively guided to include.

With the help of a good friend of mine who loves crystals as much as what I do, we have come up with the idea and plan of a crystal mandala that will be laid underneath the floor of my healing space.

Thankfully the builder is a good friend of mine and he has worked out the way in which we can do this so that the crystals will not be weather effected or lose any of their incredible healing qualities.

As you can imagine this is an incredibly exciting time for me as it will now allow me the space to do more of the work that I love to do such as running workshops, larger group meditations and teaching.

So, I thought that I would share with you the crystals that are going into my mandala and what they will each bring to my space.

Firstly, what I have done is I have added a coin to symbolise prosperity and abundance in each of the holes that have been dug for the footings.

In these I have also placed clear quartz, rose quartz and a variety of grounding crystals.

The Mandala itself will have the following crystals included in it. 

Rose Quartz

Rose quartz with its gentle pink essence, is a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates a Divine loving energy throughout the entire aura. Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfilment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others.

As all of the work that I do is heart centred and to guide others to a place of self love and acceptance this seemed more than fitting.

Clear Quartz 

Clear quartz is known as the master healer and amplifies the properties of other crystals. It balances and revitalises the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes.  Cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind and also enhances psychic abilities.  Clear quartz stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. 


Angelite raises the state of conscious awareness representing peace and brotherhood. Angelite facilitates contact with your angels and spirit guides and connects you with your higher self.  It also enhances psychic healing and telepathic communication and enables astral travel and spirit journeys. Angelite also helps you in speaking your truth, encourages forgiveness, and is a powerful stone for healing providing protection for the environment and the body. 


Fuchsite crystal infuses the heart chakra with healing vibrations that promote peaceful relaxation and creative, positive thoughts. The magical vibes of Fuchsite also reminds us that joy and happiness are our natural state of being and aids you in restoring joy and happiness in your life. Fuchsite provides healing and cleansing, releasing you from thoughts and emotions that are no longer healthy for you. Fuchsite brings emotional, mental and spiritual balance. 


Amethysts are powerful in assisting in spiritual healing. Amethyst aids you in obtaining a calm, clear mind that is better able to receive communication and guidance. Amethyst is thought of as mostly a protective stone as it is linked to the crown chakra, it is helpful in purifying the mind and clearing it of negative thoughts.  It is a powerful tool in clearing negativity of stress and anxiety, making it wonderful to meditate with. The amethyst also increases intuition.

Black Tourmaline 

Black Tourmaline is a powerful stone for protection against negative energy. It is also a strong spiritual grounding stone.

So as you can see I have all of my basis covered for all of the work that I love to do and I cannot wait to feel how beautifully they will all resonate together to enhance the sacred space that I am so blessed and excited to be creating. 

I can’t wait to share the progress with you all.
