Remembering to be Me

Aloha! I’m coming to you today from sunny Lucerne! I’ve got my arse parked on my beach towel, the dampness of the grass seeping through, and I’m hash-tagging outdooroffice all over my brain. Whoa life is good! Firstly, I wanted to say welcome to y’all – the faithful and the new and those just passing […]

The Recovery (part 2)

After getting that off my chest (see last post), I realised that I didn’t feel better. I still felt crap. Now there is definitely a place in my life for feeling emotions besides happiness. I’m totally fine with sadness – enjoy it even – but feeling simply ‘crap’ and being annoyed with yourself is not […]

A Confession of Crapness

I have something to admit. I hate the internet sometimes. I hate it like an alcoholic hates drinking. This is not the post I wrote yesterday. I wrote something and then I thought ‘should I really?’ I felt uninspired and tired. I’ve got about 8 books I want to read but my mind felt fatigued. […]

Life Without Drugs

‘The last time I thought about taking heroin was yesterday.’ Ha! At least I got your attention. Not my words, but Russell Brand’s from an article about his Life Without Drugs. Clean and sober for the past ten years, he continues, ‘I had received “an inconvenient truth” from a beautiful woman. It wasn’t about climate […]

How to be awesome

This week on Facebook I saw a posting on the rice experiment and I took it as a sign that I should write about positive thinking (I’m into signs). Have you heard of this experiment? Dr Emoto is a researcher and alternative healer from Japan whose experiments on how thoughts can change the molecular structure […]

the Simple Words of a Wise Woman

Two Sundays ago we went up a mountain called Melchsee Frutt for the second time this year. It was spectacularly sunny, jacket-off walking weather, and it even made me kind of want to learn to ski. I got so mountain high up there and the feeling permeated the following week. We wondered why we didn’t […]

…in with the new

Clearing space. Let time in. We have enough time. Breathing these words slowly has a hypnotic effect. Try it. Breathe them into your heart. Do you feel expansive? Or Are you thinking….? ‘What?! I don’t have time to read slowly!!’ It is that time of year again after all. So often we’re rushing to get […]

the Victim and the Victor

I’m in looooove! Yes! It’s happened again. I’ve been swept off my feet! Swept up and swept away – this time by Caroline Myss, Ph.D. I’ve set sail on her words and I’m not coming back. You do know how I love to fall in love … So who is this Caroline Myss, Ph. D.? […]

my mind my medicine

It’s funny how only in a crisis of health do we feel justified to focus on our body. Only then might we buy organic, eat whole foods, visit a naturopath and make smoothies with bee pollen, super greens, raw cacao and hemp powder. Only then might we feed our mind with meditation and gratitude to […]

Friday in the light

Well, that experiment of writing for a week did nothing to kill my inner critic. You know that guy? It’s the voice of the ego, telling you you’re shit and you shouldn’t try. The only thing that shuts the voice up is the act of doing. So here I am. On Tuesday I tried to […]
