Watch Your Self Talk

How often do you stop and take notice of the way you speak to yourself? Most of us go about our day on autopilot and believe that we have no control over the cards we’re dealt. But in reality we attract the life we are living in. Our self talk controls our feelings, our actions, many of our decisions and therefore many of the outcomes. Our inner narrative has a lot to answer for.  When you do stop and take notice of that voice inside, does it uplift you or get you down? Does it make you take positive steps or want to run for the hills? Many of us go about our day oblivious of the way we put ourselves down and hold ourselves back from our dreams. It could be time to stop and take note. It could be life changing. You deserve more positive action in your…

Metamorphosis is your birthright

Did you know Metamorphosis was your birthright? When you were born you were so full of potential to grow and flourish. You knew it. Everybody knew when you wanted or needed something, and you had no problem making it known. But, because you spent most of your life being stifled, downtrodden, humiliated and belittled, you got stuck, trying to fit into the normal sized box you were issued, you forgot your worth. You are enough So I came to remind you that you are enough. To wake you up to the amazing gifts that you already have inside of you. You came with a message and a purpose.

Everything is for us, not against…

Guide to Focus and Momentum for Master Procrastinators

Guide to Focus and Momentum. Sometimes it's really difficult to stay focused on a task that we find boring or uninteresting and we can find ourselves procrastinating. Ok, maybe more than sometimes. I put together this guide to focus and momentum because  I'm a self-proclaimed master procrastinator. I figured others probably have a similar problem so I set out to find ways to help me to put a loving pressure on myself to access my flow state when I can't seem to stay away from the distractions. What is Procrastination? Procrastination is doing something you shouldn't be doing when you know you should be doing something else. When we get distracted by every new shiny thing we give away our power. We lose the ability to reach out for and accomplish our goals. Our overall life quality is restricted when we are unable to control our awareness. Eat And Sleep…

How To Deal With Stress

How To Deal With Stress Stress comes and goes for most people. But some people don't have a clue how to deal with stress. It tends to linger and cause more drama than it's worth. If you hold onto your stress for long enough it can create mental health issues and even worse. So it's a good idea to have a few tools at your disposal to deal with it when it rears its ugly head.

Do you recognise the beauty of vulnerability? I bet you don't. Most of us see only weakness in our vulnerabilities. We were raised to conceal them. We were told things like wipe your eyes, don't cry, don't be a baby or be a big boy when we were hurt. But you know what? That was so limiting. We deserved better than that, we should've been taught how to release our pain and emotions not to hide away like we don't all have weaknesses and vulnerability. It is truly beautiful to get to a place where we can be so authentic that we can let our vulnerabilities shine through. It shouldn't have to be but stepping into your vulnerability is courageous. Nobody's perfect and recognising the beauty of vulnerability will help you to accept that. It's liberating to admit our inefficiencies and bring them out into the open. It can help…

The Pit Of Despair

She was lost, miserable, drowning in self pity. Everything about the mundanity of everyday life overwhelmed her. She was done bending over backwards to meet the needs of others. Her back was broken. She didn't know what to do to escape the pain. She longed for a familiarity she had only ever found in one place. She had tried to find it elsewhere but never could. She didn't really want to, but she didn't feel like she had much of a choice, She quietly climbed back into her pit of despair. It was where she felt safe. It was cold and damp and lonely and quite a few sizes too small. In fact it choked her a little but…
