The most intense relationship you will ever have

Sunday, in Australia, is Mothers Day Last night at our Monthly Meditation we did my Cutting the Cords visualisation and we did it with our mothers. Regardless of the relationship you had with your mother she is the one who gave birth to you. If it wasn’t for her you would not be who you are today. Mothers’ Day is an opportunity for all of us to acknowledge our mothers, whether they are here with us or have passed on. We all have mothers. Well, we did when we were born. She is the woman who pushed you into this […]

I am not the same as you

One of many things I’ve learnt in my long life on this earth plane is that we are all different. We all see the world from our own world view. Through our own coloured glasses. I am not the same as you. ‘My way is the only way’ is the rule that I grew up with, firstly from my mother then followed by the teachers at school. I’m sure many of you can relate. EVERY. SINGLE. THING. that has happened to me in my life has had an impact on me. The parents I have, the families that they had, the […]

We women are truly awesome!

International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8th March each year. The theme for this year is ‘Make it Happen!’  Last Friday I went to an International Women’s Day event at The Pavilion, Kiama. The decision to go was made months ago because I know the three women who organized the event; two of them are good friends. I wrote the date in my diary not having a clue who was going to be speaking and bought my ticket with the same detachment.   I arrived at The Pavilion on Friday and as there were many people that I knew I […]

The benefit of goals versus resolutions

Well it has finally arrived ~ the last day of 2014! I was going to write this blog days ago but time has passed by so quickly I got a shock to realize that today was New Years Eve. My husband and I had the most wonderful Christmas in Melbourne surrounded by our children and grandchildren, we have been busy since the 20th. We drove to Melbourne, had a christening, minded our grand-dog (with the help of two nine year old boys), had Christmas, drove home, then up to Sydney for a 5th birthday party, home and now we have […]

Does Christmas always disappoint you?

I was talking with a client recently and we were discussing Christmas. She was bemoaning the fact that Christmas in Australia just didn’t feel like Christmas – because Christmas is not meant to be hot. You guessed it, she comes from the northern hemisphere. My mother complained about Christmas not feeling like Christmas for the 44 years she lived here. People who were born and bred in Australia complain that Christmas just isn’t the same, and then go on to blame all sorts of things for why. So it would seem that Christmas just isn’t Christmas – no matter where […]

The journey to find my authentic self

Authentic. I’ve been hearing and reading a lot about being authentic lately. In fact I have been bombarded by it. Authentic here, authentic there!! It’s the buzz word in business. (I wrote this some time ago and came across it spring cleaning my files) Because I was getting the message from so many different directions I decided I needed to look into it. So I looked up the meaning: AUTHENTIC – Not false or copied; genuine; real Entitled to acceptance or belief because of agreement with known facts or experience; reliable; trustworthy Conforming to fact & therefore worthy of trust, […]

Is our capacity to love finite?

On the 11th June, Archer Robert Kenny, our new grandson was born. Interesting energy that this young soul has taken on. Archer is my maiden name and Robert is the name of his maternal grandfather and his paternal uncle (my eldest son). It has taken me awhile to get used to seeing it written down. As I held him in my arms, and felt that grandmaternal rush (yes, I just made that word up, but I’m sure you understand exactly what it means) it sent me back in time twelve years to when I nursed my first grandchild, the son of my […]

The month of love

February is touted now as the month of love. On Valentine’s Day we are surrounded by images, by words, by songs all telling us that our value, our worth, our very existence  is dependent on whether someone sends us flowers, or chocolate, or gifts, or beautiful posts on Facebook. We are being told continually that we need to keep searching outside of ourselves for validation, for acknowledgement, for approval and that we assume is love. But what about the person who has known you the longest, who knows you the best, what about them? Do you value their opinion? Do you ask […]

The power of gratitude

We are all so busy striving. We reach one goal and then we’re on to the next …. and the next. We have been taught since childhood that we must always be bettering ourselves, and so we did. Now we are told that we have to think of all the things we want to manifest into our lives. There is little time to ‘stop & smell the roses’; ‘enjoy the fruits of our labour’; ‘to rest on our laurels’, or any of the other platitudes. I have a Gratitude Jar on my desk. I put it there at the beginning of last […]

Grab life with both hands

‘Grab life with both hands.’ ‘Don’t put off tomorrow what you could do today.’ ‘There are none of us who know if we are going to wake up in the morning.’ We hear these sayings all the time and I think most of the time we just shrug it off and keep doing what we’ve been doing. The sudden death of a very dear friend recently has given me, and many others still reeling from the shock, a huge wake up call. This is a family that I adopted  when I was seven years old and newly arrived from England. There was […]
