It’s funny how quick we are to give away control over our lives isn’t it?
I am all for conspiring with the Universe to create a life that I love, but it’s funny the moment something doesn’t go our way the slightest shit hits the fan.
It’s easy to say ‘if only it all went my way then I could remain positive, focus on what I am grateful for and just generally not turn into a sassy know-it-all’.
I am wrapping up sessions with clients this week and getting ready to take some time off my business over the Festive Season and New Year. If you want to find me, I will be yoga-ing non-stop, out on the ocean soaking up the sun (if Melbourne gets around to turning it on for us) and surrounding myself with great food and even better company.
It of course is only fitting with this being my last post of the year to do a wrap up of my 2016, because ahh life, we like it in a neat little bow at times, especially when a year has been tumultuous it helps to feel at peace and send the year off in style.
I am writing this not knowing where I am going – perhaps it will reveal itself as I write more, or this could be a super fun journey – let’s dive into it together.
I have spoken about completing a 4 day mediation intensive training a bit here and there, but today I really want to dive deeper into this because it has been such a beautiful incredible experience and I want to share this.
I first penned this post just after completing my meditation course and now am coming back to this 2 months prior (almost to the day) and have been meditating daily for 20 minutes or 40 minutes each day! Crazy for me to even fathom, now I am not saying this will be for your, but by sharing my experience I hope to help you with your own meditation practice if that looks even more hardcore than mine, or by simply taken a few mindful breaths before you get out of bed.
Almost one month ago I hosted a sacred in person event for women who wanted to learn to trust in themselves more than their fear. This night was focused on sacred connection, soul-filled clarity and heart-centred action.
I want to share with you about my own creative experience of bringing this into the world and provide you with all my insight and learnings too.
First things first, let me just say this, it was hard. So super, really hard. Both professionally and due to tragic personal reasons in the lead up to this event. There were a number of times I thought I could have or should have cancelled it. I didn’t have the amount of guests at the workshop as I had originally hoped for, and I really had to work at reframing this lack thinking to one of gratitude. I had to get over myself and love and enjoy the workshop – which I so did. So let’s dive in …
Life is feeling chaotic right now, sitting here too hot from my freshly cooked minestrone soup with cramps pretty much sums up life right now. This morning I journaled like I do most mornings and felt that this mish-mash collection and ramblings of everything in my head would be of use to somebody out there.
This is a collection of thoughts penned from the inside of my journal.
Just trying to make sense of this little world I live in, and perhaps it might help you make sense of something you have going on right now too.
