Guilty as Charged

  I was driving to Brisbane just before Christmas, and I saw a sign on the side of the road. It said, “Maintain safe space for the unexpected”. Although it was referring to maintaining a safe space between vehicles when driving, I realised it had a powerful meaning for my life. Maintain safe space for the unexpected. Wow – what a great message about life. As I think about my own life, I realise this is something I don’t do. I plan my year, but don’t allow enough space for the unexpected. And so when those curved balls then land in my lap, I find myself up to my eyeballs in things I’ve committed to, and inevitably I’m letting someone...

Affirmations by Amma

  In 2007 I saw a photo of an Indian spiritual leader and humanitarian called Amma (meaning "Mother"). Amma is known as the "hugging saint", because she spreads her love and blessings by hugging people.  I was intrigued, and decided to attend a 3 day retreat with her when she next visited Australia. Her impact on me was so profound, I now keep a photo of her in my bedroom, and I've attended at least 3 other retreats with her.  I went from being utterly "in my head" and "in my ego" when I arrived at her retreat, to being in a state of reverence and peace by the second day, after my second hug with her. A complete stillness...

How to Live an Extraordinary Life

  I’ve often heard it mentioned that if we want more abundance, prosperity and success in our life, we should surround ourselves with people who are abundant, prosperous and successful. That’s a great principle. Yet it doesn’t just apply to the arena of abundance. It equally applies to all aspects of our life. We’re vibrational beings, and we choose the vibration we hold in. If we are constantly around people who see themselves as victims, who are stuck in their life, and simply don’t have any desire to change that perspective, then we can find ourselves drawn into that heavier vibration. These people typically have a fixed mindset, ie. “I am who I am, and nothing can change that”. In...

Affirmations for Deep Rest

It’s easy to get sucked into the frenetic energy of the holiday season. But this time-out also presents a perfect opportunity for us to reflect, relax, re-fill, and re-charge. Later this month, I'll close my office for some much-needed rest. But before I go, I wanted to share with you some of my favourite quotes, to help you step outside of the whirlwind and soak up the magic of this time of year.  Intuitively pick a number between 1 and 9, to see which inspirational saying and Young Living essential oil is choosing you today: 1. When you start feeling the drag of your inner winter, begin to treat yourself like a favoured child: with kindness and love. Assume your needs are reasonable...

Fluffy Duck takes a Solo Flight

Have you noticed how our messages and guidance from Spirit come in all shapes and sizes?  Sometimes they are direct transmissions, where we get images, words or feelings that nudge us in one direction or block us in another direction.  Sometimes we get a sudden “urge” to do something, and that lands us in the right place at the right time. Sometimes we will see those messages through symbols, where certain numbers keep popping up, or where our attention is drawn to something quite random in our environment, and we realise it’s a symbolic message for us….or where a message appears in a dream. And sometimes, our messages are relayed through a third party, such as the words of a...
