Peace of Mind

Tags : 

You know that feeling when you’re far far away, deeply immersed in what you’re doing and something or someone, happens to disturb your peace of mind. I can see an analogy for this.

Imagine, you’re cocooned in a balloon. Suspended. Weightless. Content to be with your thoughts and ideas. Then along comes someone with a pin to burst your bubble. BAM! The air… your peace… fragmented. Your thoughts and ideas scattered in all directions.

That’s where I was, deep in my book with thoughts for inclusions, feeling inspired and motivated. In the flow.

When “said son” got out of bed, after a bite to eat he headed to the gym. Great! I’ll keep writing, I thought. It was only when he returned did I realise it was 10am and I was still in my pj’s and hadn’t showered! So, I left my seat eager to shower and dress, and get back to my project.


As I stepped out of the shower, over the noise of the exhaust fan I thought I heard the thud of music infiltrate through the walls. Exiting the bathroom, the doof doof was accompanied by words of a song—a repetitive tune.

What to do?

I pondered. There were various angles from which I could respond. The space wasn’t solely mine. My sons and I shared it. I understood “said son” was in cleaning mode, and de-cluttering the mess in his room meant he’d find much needed clarity. I honoured this. I could take my work elsewhere and visualised sitting in my car, beachside. That would work, at least until the battery on the laptop ran out. I recognised that once-upon-a-time there would only have been my “my way”. Let’s not go there!

In seeking a solution, I found a compromise, something we could all work with to invite harmony and balance to our day. I saw that nothing “happens” to us, everything is an opportunity for self-development and growth. In this case it was an invitation for peace. I’m grateful I stopped to take notice.

In conclusion, I can say the music didn’t last too long, and I utilised my time with other chores, that I often pushed aside. When the house fell silent once more, I then returned to my writing project. Being flexible helps keep us in the flow.

Okay, time to get back to my bubble. I invite the thoughts and ideas to re-enter my head and heart, filling me with enlightening whispers once more.

Discover Your Potential

Tags :

What is your perception of what is required to be creative?

Do you believe, like many, that you do not have a creative bone in your body?

What does creativity add to your life?

Many have deemed that if ‘it’ doesn’t pay the bills then why do it.

Would you like to discover your potential?

Life and how we view it is all about our perception. Our perceptions have been moulded from our life experiences, where life events have presented us with a choice as to whether we respond or to react to any given situation.

What if we are all here to simply learn to live in peace, joy and harmony?

What if we all let go of the burdens, life injustices and fears that keep us bound in a particular way of doing and instead remained connected with our innocent inner child, living our days in wonder and exploring our multidimensional selves by simply being?

Yes, this could be deemed as an idealistic viewpoint.

However, has anyone ever said to you “Have you any idea what you’re capable of?”

I have, and the answer was ‘No’. This question, though has proved to be invaluable as I continue to investigate what my full potential might be. If there is a limit. For many believe, as I do, that there are no limitations.

When I look to the horizon where I see the sea meet the blue sky—this to me, represents our unlimited potential.

I digress…

What is your perception of creativity?

Does it hold value for you?

How important is it to you?

What is it?

For me, to be creative is an expression of who I am and how I feel…

Every photo I take belongs to a story ~ Tweet this!

Every word I share is connected to a feeling ~ Tweet this!

Every action I take is another attempt to discover who I am ~ Tweet this!

This is a deeper reason why I created the Write to Heal Signature Blend and Essential Oil Blend because I want to inspire you to discover your potential.

Are you ready and willing?

2015 Year of the Sheep

Tags : 


I’m calling 2015 year of the sheep, although the Chinese also refer to this as the year of wood, ram or goat. The sheep is the 8th sign in the Chinese zodiac. This parallels with 2015, for when you add these digits individually to reach a single digit, 2015 is an 8! The Chinese consider this number to be very lucky. Numerologically, it also represents prosperity and good fortune especially when integrity comes in to play.

Under the yin influence of the element wood, the sheep is a symbol of peace, compassion, balance and renewal. 2015 is potentially a period of prosperity and wellbeing, which means we all have the ability to benefit both personally and professionally. When you tip the 8 on its side becomes the infinity symbol, which essentially means we have ‘unlimited’ potential to be at our best.

It is my understanding that when we put in the effort we will reap the rewards. When we couple this intent with the understanding that this year is auspicious—said to be lucky—we can attain whatever it is we set our mind to. As James Redfield said…

“Where Attention goes Energy flows; Where Intention goes Energy flows!”

The year of the Sheep begins February 19. As always, we have the opportunity to embrace these elements and flow with the current.

What action can you take now to see this year be auspicious for you?
