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 […]

Internal Sunshine for an EPIC 2014

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me and I’m feeling good… Happy New Year! It’s a new me, it’s a new you … There’s something special about this time of year, right? January sings with renewed hope. There’s fresh air in our lungs. The collective consciousness is upbeat. […]

My Beautiful Mess : free-basing metaphoria (because it’s Christmas!)

Hello my friends! My time here in Perth is coming to an end. Yep, in three days’ time I’ll be leaving and, though I am sad in the way that I always will be, I am also not sad to be going back to Lucerne. Yes, not sad. It’s time to get back to my […]

…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 […]

Crazy little thing called Faith

       “Do you have a faith?” The pastoral care officer asked me as she stood beside the bed I had been assigned while I waited. It was bed 21 and I thought it was a good omen. I had enjoyed being 21 and it was an odd number, made up of three and seven […]

Emancipation : the sequel

My friend just had a baby! It was an empowering experience for her and she got exactly what she wanted. Why? Because she said ‘no’. She said ‘no’ to the epidural and being induced and ‘yes’ to researching, reading, preparing her body and mind and taking the power back. What an inspiration! And I’m not […]

Lessons in Emancipation

A strange thing happened last Tuesday… I said ‘no’. And it made me realise how much I normally say ‘yes’. It felt good to refuse for a change. It had been a very hard day and I felt it was ‘justified’. The people I said ‘no’ to were also totally cool about it and understanding. I […]

out of the dumpster and into the daylight

Everyone should have a blog! Seriously. It is so nice to be able to say ‘I feel like shit’ and get a response. The act of revealing my true feelings was liberating in itself.  It was great to just confess to my downer, rather than slapping on a coat of white paint and an exaggerated […]
