2020 is here! A new year, a new decade

A new year, a new decade! What is this going to mean for you? Are you just going to carry on doing what you’ve been doing for the last 10 years or are you going to make a decision to grab this new decade with both hands and make your dreams come true? The decision is yours. As the saying by Benjamin Franklin confirms, ‘if you fail to plan you are planning to fail.’ What if it’s true, and you have manifested the way the world has treated you up until now? If you keep doing what you’ve been doing […]

There are none of us blameless

As I sit here on Day 7 of the new year, the new decade, I am grappling with so many emotions that at times feel overwhelming as I watch the tragedy around me unfold. I have had a house full of people, my family, a total of 8 adults, 8 children and 3 dogs, and it has been difficult to find a space that gave me an opportunity for the solitude to contemplate, process and meditate on what is happening and how I feel. Yesterday, after 10 days of visitors, I took myself off to the river and then the […]

Big lesson for me this week

When you feel like you’re pushing a huge large boulder up a very steep hill . . . Stop! Because you’re going the wrong way! It’s not meant to be that hard I have told this to so many clients over the years but as happens sometimes we don’t take our own advice! I had an idea, a plan It was a beautiful vision And I was fixated on what I had organised I could see exactly how it was going to play out But no matter how much I wanted it to happen, how much I organised it I […]

Expectations

Years ago I learnt that having expectations of what people would do and how they would behave was bringing me a lot of hurt and disappointment. I use to write scenarios in my head of how something, an event or a day would go, what he would say, what she would say, what would happen and how it would all pan out. Without sharing my script or thoughts with anyone else. And then I would come crashing down with disappointment when it didn’t go the way I had orchestrated it in my imagination. Slowly I realised that I needed to […]

Today I nursed my grandson

Today, April 4th 2019 is 18 years after I wrote the following and I feel that it is a significant day to post this. Happy 18th Birthday Fraser – from my heart to yours, always.   Today I nursed my grandson. Not such an unusual thing you may think. I had flown from Sydney to Melbourne to meet him the first 24 hours after his entry into this world As I had my private encounter with him I looked into his face & remembered a time long ago …   A decision made under pressure with no clear understanding of […]

Manifesting does work

After a very long wait it is finally a reality. Today is the day my old kitchen is removed and a new one put in its place. The house is now crawling with tradies and I am sitting in my study typing this on Word because the electricity is off and therefore the internet 🙁 Last night as we cleared the last of the things from the kitchen and I wiped down those benches for the last time, I said goodbye and thankyou to a kitchen that has served me well for the 12 years we have lived in this […]

Is this you??

  Are you going through your life feeling like something is missing? You have everything you need; a job, kids, a loving husband, a house… you know you “should” be happy, but some part of the puzzle feels like it is missing.   You just don’t feel fulfilled in your life. Perhaps you are able to label these feelings as depression or anxiety, or you may just feel “blah” most the time and can’t be bothered to even find a label for it.   When you look around everyone else seems to have it all together and then you start […]

I’m Coming Out …

I tried doing it last year and it didn’t work. Yes, the planets weren’t aligned yet … but I wasn’t ready. I spent money and time on a new website, and then didn’t do anything with it. But the bottom line is … I wasn’t ready. I was waiting to lose weight, for my short hair cut to grow out, for my wrinkles to disappear etc, etc, etc. There were so many excuses. But now I am ready. The power of this year numerologically, the timing, it’s my birthday today, so it’s now or never. I am coming out … […]

Gratitude – 101

There is so much talk about gratitude these days, we are surrounded by it.   I remember years ago I spent hours writing sayings in a beautiful journal for my mother. I had an angel stamp so I sprinkled gold angels randomly through the journal. I thought it looked beautiful and inspiring.   I was going through a creative phase at that point and I was busily making things for people.   My mother was a negative woman and I was trying to give her some positives to focus on to help her change her mindset.   When I found […]

The Christening Gown

  Years ago when I was going through a creative phase I decided that I would like to make a christening gown for my future grandchildren and maybe it could be passed down to their children. As an only child, of an only child, of an only child, with two cousins who lived on the other side of the world, I lived with no other family around me than my mother and father. I had missed terribly the big families of which I read in the many books into which I immersed myself. I had a best friend who was […]
