7 Steps You Can Take Every Day to Create the Life of Your Dreams

Here is the secret . . . you already have the answers to everything you are wondering about inside you, you have the ability to heal your Self, only you can change. All you have to do is say YES! Say yes to the Universe, say yes to receiving, say yes to health, say yes to healing foods, say yes to happiness, say YES, say YES, say YES! Starting to get the picture?

Every Day Is A Holy-Day

You don’t have to be a Christian to appreciate the true spirit of Christmas. “Peace on Earth, goodwill to all men” is an intent understandable to and appreciated by men and women of pretty much any religion or no religion. So as we attempt to bring peace, health and inner harmony into our personal lives, how can we tap into this true spirit of love and shared humanity?

A Cultural Chasm?

As the US faces the uncertain reality of its election result and Britain pursues Brexit, whatever that means in practice, so our nations may seem divided. Both campaigns were bitter and divisive. Although, on both sides of the pond, the winners have called for unity, healing and working together, within the hearts and minds of many Brits and Americans, this intent doesn’t seem realistic.

Fit Nursing Mama

One of the most common questions I get asked is – “Am I OK to be doing high intensity fitness training when I’m nursing?” My quick answer is “Yes!” I personally have two super healthy “fat” babies that were exclusively breast fed until 7/8 months old.

Crossing the Cultural Chasm

In a number of different scenarios, the idea of a gulf or chasm between two different ways of thinking is very much in evidence. In the West, for example, the Arts/Science divide is often considered insurmountable. But the list of chasms is a long one: young/old, rural/city, and religious beliefs for example. Or even the timeless man/women. Few would deny some fairly fundamental differences in how these respective pairings of mind-sets operate!

What’s your PB?

To any track athlete or swimmer, a Personal Best, or PB, is all: it is the single best indicator of their progress . . . and place on the global stage. But how can we adapt this simple and useful measure to progress on our personal growth journey? When our goal is not to win gold but to become more whole, better at coping with life, is there an equivalent to a PB?

The Power of Gratitude

When I was first introduced to the HeartMath system I didn’t really “get” it. There was a lot of talk about brain waves, energy fields and ECGs. I had a hard time trying to wrap my head around how this was going to simplify my life. My mentor at the time suggested that I just give it a try. I did…And I was pretty much blown away. He used a biofeedback mechanism to identify when my was “coherent” and guided me through a very brief gratitude exercise.

For or Against?

In the personal development arena, victim thinking is a major issue. So many of us can’t help feeling that the whole world is against is. And, of course, if that’s what’s in our heads so the universal law of attraction applies, and we bring that very situation to us. All classic justifications for positive thinking. But is it as simple as that? Can we just switch our thoughts to more constructive ones?

We’ve All Got a Heart!

What a lovely, and moving, opening ceremony to the Rio Paralympics. Such a powerful message: we’ve all got a heart. Whatever our ability . . . or disability, wherever in the world we come from, we all have a heart. OK, for a few lucky transplant patients, it might have started out as somebody else’s but we, every single one of us, have a heart.
