“People who ask don’t get!”…?

“People who ask don’t get!”. Did you ever hear that expression growing up? I know I did. The perception was that it’s not polite to ask, it’s greedy. This belief however is something that limits enormously. When our emotional buttons are tweaked, when we don’t

Time to appreciate your self

Have you ever longed for someone to appreciate you…and felt disappointed? Of course, it’s not anybody else’s job to appreciate us; and, if we’re feeling un-appreciated, it’s good to learn to do it for our self. How we talk to and treat ourself determines how

Talking to ourself

D’you ever find yourself talking to yourself…out loud? It’s easy to joke about talking to our self … many of us do it, I know I do! Seriously, the question perhaps is…how do you talk to yourself… internally? Words carry energy, they shape our thoughts

From your heart

It’s not unusual to find it challenging to say what we really think and feel if somewhere within us a there’s a lack of security. Often this comes from childhood conditioning, how we’re cut or shaped if you like, and it can be deep. It’s

True or false?

Over the past month we’ve looked at personal development from the perspective of being real. What if we don’t know who the ‘real’ me is? As a newborn, we come into the world with unlimited potential. The diamond within our heart is just that, it’s

Freedom to be yourself

Freedom means different things to different people. What does it mean for you? At the end of the day, I believe that we all want to feel free to be who we are, to find the freedom within ourselves to be real and embrace life

Being real

We’ve all heard the saying ‘To Thine Own Self Be True’ and most of us understand it to mean be authentic, to be honest.  What we can perhaps then ask is… how well do you know yourself how willing are you to be imperfect…vulnerable to

Who am I at heart?

Last week I shared a little about my experience of being in quarantine, and how we can support ourself when we are alone , when we have nothing to do except simply be. Of course, when we have not nothing to do except be with

Hiding behind a smile

This month we’ve looked at opening our heart to our guidance. In order to protect ourselves, sometimes we shut down our emotions and we can build layers and layers around our heart all of which create a brick wall, a fortress. Are you someone who

Opening your heart to your guidance.

D’you ever feel that you’re holding it together by the skin of your teeth, you’re fighting whatever you’re facing in life or using force to will your life into happening the way you think it should? Sometimes we need to stop thinking we have to

Why the heart?

Within our heart…our heart is the core, the centre of our inner life, the centre of everything. It has everything we might want and need. It’s where we find peace, stability, our innate wisdom, joy, love, compassion, and support. It’s where we see the reality

How does your heart speak to you?

With so much noise and distraction in the world, with emotions swirling around, when you just don’t know what to do, it can be tricky to hear your heart speak. It’s good therefore to step away from situations, to breathe, be silent, still, and ask

Listen to your heart

When your world is turned upside down and you don’t know what to do, everything is uncertain, yet decisions need to be made….going into your heart and listening to your intuition not only brings a sense of calm it offers guidance. Guidance that comes from

Opening your heart

We’ve talked about how some experiences that occur through change can have us feel pain and a sense of loss, we can put up walls and then, if we judge ourself for what happened, we can become hard-hearted … and put our connection to our

Love, love, love…

With Valentine’s Day coming up, many of us will be sharing messages of love. With “All you need is love” and “Love one another” ringing in my ears, I’m imagining the difference it would make if our world lived by these messages…what would be possible

Getting in touch with your heart

Going through any sort of change in our life, it’s good to have something to go to when you feel overwhelmed, unable to think or plan. When you feel as if you are in a fog, it’s a clear sign to get out of your

Bring me sunshine…

One of the things I love most is that time in the morning when the world is still and the sun rises beyond the trees in the garden, its light dancing through the branches. Thinking about the sun…each ray is a source of energy, an

Seeing through the eyes of your heart

Last week we talked about moving beyond appearance, seeing the significance of things and I asked the question – Are you willing to see life through the eyes of your heart and explore what is possible? When we look at appearance, we often judge and
