Are You king And Queen Of Your Empire

The answer to “Are you king and queen of your Empire?” should be a resounding yes! The empire that I speak of is not land, people or any object that you might think. If you have read any of my work you will know or have guessed that the empire I speak of is your mind. I think we are all crazy at least some of the time. So crazy that we live way beneath our true potential, becoming addicted, depressed, doing what we know to be wrong but doing …

Oh No What’s Happened?

This morning I was inspired after reading an article by one of my favourite meditation writers and teachers Giovanni over at liveanddare who used the phrase I dont know maybe as its main theme of the article. Its message is so fantastic and sobering. I will paste it here below:- “Sometimes we look back in life and feel that was nothing like I expected, yet everything I needed. Yet when it was happening, we were probably angry or disappointed. It doesn’t need to be so. A wise man lost his …

Can Morning Pages Create Anxiety?

This is set to be my shortest article yet. The long and the short answer is yes! This took me completely by surprise several months into my journey with morning pages. I began to feel very uneasy and yes anxious when I sat down to write. I would say that the problem became so chronic I had to stop for about three weeks. Instinctively I knew what was happening, but it was not until I listened to christina lopes work that I realised this was a common occurrence. The “problem” …

It’s ok

It’s ok not to know. It’s ok to be who you are today. It’s ok to feel insecure. It’s ok to feel the way you feel. It’s ok. I want you to be you and be comfortable in your skin without the permission of anyone else. If someone is poking fun(and I dont mean teasing in a loving way), they are inadvertently saying it’s not ok to be different. What they are actually saying is that you must conform. Actually you dont have to conform. You do have to be …

Why I do Morning Pages

I am in the habit of doing morning pages (a form of journalling )most days though not every single day. I find it a great practice to do as it is like holding up a mirror yo your soul. In doing do it show you what you are afraid of and why, it shows you all those little insecurities. It shows you all the reasons that make up why you are who you are at this moment in time. Over time you learn to eradicate and overcome the fears you …

Overcoming High Sensitivity

I have great news for anyone that has suffered from being “too sensitive”, it really does create or rather leave one feeling unnecessary emotional pain. And that is at the hands of another party that is either unsensitive, uncaring or in pain themselves. The last category of those “creating pain” in the sensitive person is the psychopath or narcissist. I will share with you why sensitivity is a gift you have not yet learnt to harness (without the pain!) to become more confident and personally strong.) I suffered with extreme …

Dont Forget Who You Are

You are a wonderful child of the universe, a wonderful child of God. A beautiful being. When you were created it was said that all was good. You are a powerful being that is self loving and loving of others. “For you were given the spirit of love, power and sound mind” There are forces within this world and within our minds that will fool us and lead us to think we are less than who we actually are. This is done so that we can be used and manipulated …

When You Judge

When you judge someone to be horrid, unsavoury, or whatever adjective you wish to use, is it pain you are actually seeing. We can misinterpret pain as being something that it is not. Quite often what we are actually seeing is someone elses pain. But we misunderstand. We actually judge because that is our own pain being triggered. Like a baby that begins to cry when it senses the stress of its mother, or the anger of its mother. It fails to understand pain and it seems to draw in …

It Is What It Is

Lately I have come to terms with the fact that I have been way too judgmental both of myself and of others and to be honest this has been going on for years and yet, I have never really been cognizant of the fact. Better late than never! Today I was marvelling at how my friend seemingly finds it so easy to cope with two children plus an elderly disabled parent. She just takes it in her stride and always with a smile on her face. I told her I …

Becoming Your Higher Self

I read a post today regarding distractions that politicians throw our way that prevents people from seeing the big picture, keeping us worried and afraid instead of empowered individuals. They scaremonger so that we will think, act and vote in a certain way. The crazy thing is we do this to each other and worst still to ourselves! I started to recognise how different forms of distractions seek to disempower us and keep us from becoming our higher selves. It is played out in minute detail in our personal lives …
