"It takes courage to live in this world and it takes courage to love in this world."
A quote from Dan Millman
I agree. It takes a warrior spirit to keep choosing to open our hearts and dive into our vulnerability in order to be an expression of compassion for change.
My inner dialogue might go something like this:
I feel a surge of disappointment rising. Like a dark cloud...
Yep, you will see quite a few posts and programmes here for women. This one is only for you because you are important. At the core of all I do, the deepest longing in my heart, is that we come together, consciously, compassionately and support each other as human beings, beyond gender, to bring out the most potent, vibrant, healthy versions of ourselves.
It's 2019. At this time of year we're bombarded with predictions for the months ahead, techniques and tools to plan your life and manifest your dreams, and practices, mindsets and products to make a better, happier and healthier you!
In all honesty, no-one knows what's gonna happen. 2019 is a mystery.
I absolutely love dreaming up the future and...
In Ireland we use words like ‘gloomy’ and ‘miserable’ for these rainy, grey, late Autumn days.
There are plenty of ‘them days’ in Ireland, which support the Irish romance with melancholy, as well as the green grass, so lush I want to eat it.
You’ll also hear a lot of “ah sure it’s GRAND isn’t it?”
1. Spend time in nature.
We adapt naturally like nature. Observe how animals and plants are adapting. In the forest soak in the smells and colours, take deep breaths of fresh air, lean against a tree for support. Charge up on the energy in the wind and waves across the lake. Watch in awe and wonder the changing skies as the mystery of the season unfolds.
2. Get lots of sleep, every night....
Die, my love, die.
She lures me in.
Shivers in my body. My head throbs. My eyes sting.
She lures me in.
100 things to do.
Expectations. Promises. People need me.
A heavy heart. A confused mind.
I've been denying her, avoiding her, by all means.
Come my love.
Give me your blood, she whispers.
My grip of resistance weakens.
With mud under my finger nails, I give...
Imagine for a moment...
Imagine a world where you feel intrinsically safe and welcome.
What would that feel like in your body?
Imagine that because you feel safe and welcome, you relax deeply in being you.
You focus all of your energy on enjoying, experiencing and sharing the potency of Life and Love in your Being.
You are not trying to prove anything or defend yourself...
Just like me you are doing your best to be a good and loving person.
Just like me you don’t like to feel pain.
Just like me you make mistakes and feel shame and guilt.
Just like me you deserve to be felt, heard, seen and loved for who you are.
The difference for someone living an awakened life is not that they feel no pain but that they transform their pain into a gift and an...
No matter where I am, my practice is to sit there and be still there for a moment.
No matter what I am feeling, my practice is to sit and be still with that for a moment.
There’s a part of me that doesn’t want to be here now or to feel this now.
There’s a part of me that prefers to create another reality and make up stories of what is real. Stories that try to prove my...
“Let it go my love,” she whispers, “let it all go.” She caresses me with her gentle waters and soft breeze.
I feel the waves of relaxation start to move through my body.
My breath begins to reflect this gentle caress now across my inner landscape.
I feel the relaxation wash over my mind.
My body sinks deeper into her loving embrace.
Like falling back into a safety net,...
