This week’s blog is about feeling connected.
I woke up this morning feeling worried.
About money ...
About family ...
About my business ...
About the world ...
About my health ...
I was feeling very disconnected.
So I did my usual morning routine, and listened to my favourite meditation (twice). Then I did a ride on my bike.
And as I rode I was listening to Kyle Gray (author and angel coach) and he reminded me that we are all equally worthy and able to connect to our Angels.
You are just as connected as me.
I’m just as connected as him.
Let that sink in for a minute.
I had to stop riding for a bit to process.
Generally yes, I do feel very connected, but I wouldn’t have said I was AS connected at Kyle Gray or James Van Prague or Colleen Baron-Cohen or Sonia Choquette.
They are professionals.
They do it all the time.
I’m just ... me ...
Kyle said we are all WORTHY of the same connection.
Something inside me got very excited.
My soul ?? 😉
It occurred to me that ... wow ... wait ... okay ... if this is the truth ... if I shift my belief from “I am SOMETIMES connected” ... to ... “I am ALWAYS connected” ... then I COULD be as connected as them.
In essence I AM always connected.
My essential Soul-Self IS always connected.
And YOU ARE connected ...
Imagine that you are like a light but you might have the switch off ... or put on ‘low dimmer’.
Esther & Abraham Hicks says that when you feel bad you are pinching yourself off from Source.
You are not dis-connected.
You are in dimmer-mode.
So, how do I get more connected?
After I ride I feel connected.
After teaching a course
After seeing an inspiring or funny movie
After eating a high vibe meal
After talking to someone on my wavelength
After writing my blog 😉
This week ... I want to encourage you to notice when you feel most connected.
Pssst ... the key is that you feel good.
And then ... DO MORE if those things.

This week’s blog is about starting fresh.
As I woke up this morning I thought: “I need to re-set how I’m working.”
And it makes perfect sense I’d feel that. Easter and the full moon is a time to release the old and clean the slate.
Have you been doing things the same way your whole life?
Are you feeling stuck, frustrated or bored?
Do you feel the need to shake things up a bit?
Now, I’m not suggesting you sell your belongings, shave your head and move to Greece ... although ... that would be very cleansing. 😉
It’s about driving a different route to work.
It’s about choosing a different meal at your favourite restaurant.
It’s about telling the truth instead of lying.
It’s about reading a self improvement book and actually doing the exercises.
It’s about booking that course you’ve been considering for months (or years).
It's about opening your own saving account.
The smallest shift can really affect your life in an amazing way.
I mean what if you started saying no when you don’t want to do things?
This is a big one ...
I know a lot of my wellness tribe struggle with saying no.
So one of my favourite coaches Cheryl Richardson says to try this ...
When you are asked to do something and you’re not sure if you want to do it:
1. Give yourself space (*see below for suggestions for words)
2. Check in with your gut (if you feel doubt, obligation, or nausea - it’s a no!)
3. Gracefully decline (*see examples below)
Think about it like this.
You're not bringing your best self if you say yes reluctantly ... or from guilt or fear.
You are potentially bringing your angry, resentful and frustrated self.
Not very fun huh?
And besides that ... why would you want to tell yourself that your needs are not important?
That’s what you are doing when you say yes ... but you want to say no.
I encourage you this week to practice the three steps above.
And if you are really trying to reset your life, you can take up the 30 day challenge ... to disappoint one person with this method every day.
Say no with grace and love.
Then when you DO say yes it will be authentic and it will feel amazing!!
Everyone benefits from that.

Cheryl Richardson - The Art of Extreme Self Care
Give yourself Space by saying ... "Thank you for asking, I'll get back to you tomorrow." "I'm not sure if I can help, I need to check my diary."
Gut check reminder ... if you feel in ANY way anxious, angry, resentful about saying yes ... please DON'T do it. You are allowed to say no.
Saying No with grace and love ... "I appreciate you asking me, but I'm not available to help you right now." "I'd love to assist you but I'm busy that day/week." "No, I'm not able to do that, perhaps someone else can help you." "I don't have time to fit that into my schedule. Thank you for understanding."
This week’s blog is about menopause (peri-menopause) and all the important ‘pauses’ that happen in our lives.
(So, gentlemen this blog is mostly for the ladies, but you may find it useful.)
A lot of my clients are women ... and a lot of those women are between 45-65 years old.
So, a lot of my clients have experienced the unique events that happen during this ‘pause’ in life.
I was talking to a mum today about her 2 year old having crazy mood swings and what she’s doing to manage and allow her daughter to be who she is through that process.
We agreed that you have to love your children through this process ... right?
It’s a significant shift in everyone’s life.
It must be ... we all can relate to the “terrible twos”.
This conversation made me think about other times in our lives when we have these shifts, transitions or ‘pauses’ ...
As a teenager
As a thirty year old
As a forty year old
As a fifty year old
As a sixty year old
These are not times to berate, or scold, or handle ... these are times to pause.
There are different questions to ask at each stage. Different emotions. Different things to understand. Different needs.
But all are in essence the same ... because I’ve realised, it’s a time to pause and be loving to ourselves.
Not to push through.
Not to ignore.
Not to belittle.
Not to manipulate.
Not to fight.
Not to criticise.
And so, I invite you this week ... whatever stage of ‘pausing’ you are in ...
Practise being fully IN THE PAUSE.
Breathe. Sit. Feel. Allow. ... and just let that hot flash envelope you.
You are being given an opportunity to know yourself more deeply.
Take this pause.
You deserve it.
It’s your time.

This week’s blog is about the releasing the past ...
Why is it that we have the same issues from the past come up again and again?
About your mum
About your dad
About your partner
About your siblings
Insert eye roll ...
Usually it’s because we’ve not quite finished healing them.
There might still be a tiny bit of dirt to clean under your finger nails or at the bottom of the pan.
That’s not to say you haven’t come a LONG way since the original incident.
In fact, if you only have a tiny bit of dirt left ... congratulations!!
No really ...
You are moving in the right direction.
Be proud of yourself.
This week I’ve had some deep conversations with my family about some past stuff.
In some cases it was emotional and in others calm and considered.
What was most interesting to me was that we all came to an agreement that we do want to have healthy communication and being authentic. However, some people think authentic is one thing and some think it’s another.
Makes sense we are different human beings.
Even if we grew up in the same household, we have different views on how things happened.
Now I believe our focus needs to be on three things ...
1. Self compassion
Self compassion - being kind to ourselves about anything we perceive we did ‘wrong’ or ‘bad’. Practice being kind to yourself. I did the best that I could under the circumstances, with the tools I had. Now I have a lot more tools than 10 years ago. Don’t you?
Forgiveness - this is not about letting people get away with being unkind or disrespectful (or worse). It’s about letting go of the toxic feelings and being at peace. Remind yourself daily that you are a perfect soul ... and so are your family members. We all just get caught up in our ego personalities sometimes.
Grace - when I hear this word I think it is about being open-hearted, present and loving. Think about it ... when you are gracious ... or graceful ... it comes from a heart space. Breathe and be as present as you can, no matter what chaos is going on around you.
Moving forward with my family I am intending to do it with grace.
That’s how I will be fully authentic.
If you’d like to do some gentle releasing of the past ... and add some tools to your self-healing kit.

This week I’d like to share with you a story about synchronised events.
I love it when the Universe surprises me with beautiful new people.
It seems to be happening more and more ...
I know it’s a significant meeting when I get that sensation of pleasant pins and needles from head to toe.
It was like that when I contacted Ocean Reeve Publishing to start creating my book. (*yes it’s coming soon Phil ...😉)
So ... a few days ago I got a call from a woman who said she’d move to Phillip Island and had been looking at my Facebook page and felt she had to talk to me.
We chatted about how we are both Reiki Masters, have travelled overseas and worked in similar industries.
It was so easy. It flowed.
She said ‘I’m also a singer and I play the Tibetan bowls ... maybe we can do some meditation classes together.’
I said ‘Yes that sounds great!’
It just felt right.
I had no hesitations about meeting her for coffee.
We then talked for 2 hours until the cafe threw us out.
Now we are looking at dates to do Moon Meditations and Sound Chakra Meditations.
Watch this space my friend! :-)
And so this week I ask you ...
Are you open to being surprised and delighted?
Are you allowing synchronistic meetings and events to happen?
Are you answering the intuitive calls of your heart and soul?
Please feel free to share your thoughts, feelings and synchronistic stories on the Facebook page ... @Conscious Courses and Therapies
