This week's blog is about BFF's ... best friends forever ...
No I am not having a flash-back to 1989!
I want to remind you how AAAAAMAZING it is to have people who love and support you.
How INCREDIBLE it is to speak honestly to people and not be judged.
How HEART-WARMING it is to share your beliefs and be fully heard.
How BRILLIANT it is to be able to call Canada on FaceTime and talk for 2 hours as if your friend is just next door.
Do you have friends like that?
Jim Rohn says that 'you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.'
That is an AHA moment for a lot of people.
It makes you stop and think right?
After a wonderful conversation like this morning, I am reminded to more often include some 'long-distance' BFF's into my life.
It raises my vibration.
It lifts my heart.
It makes me smile.
It gives me energy (the good kind).
That sort of conversation can buoy me for a few days.
Imagine if you added some more regular BFF talks into your week or your day.
Imagine if ... instead of talking to the 'drama-masters' in your life ... you gave more time to the BFF's.
Why don't we do it?
Well, I think it is because we get energy from drama.
It's not the good kind that makes you feel warm and fuzzy though ... huh?
It's the agitated, weird, anxious kind, that makes you all churned up in your belly.
It's also encouraged culturally too ... don't you think?
The news reports lead with drama; adverts are dramatic; most TV shows are drama-filled; and we are strangely fascinated with the drama of other people's lives.
I find that I am drawn to these things when I am trying to distract myself from my life.
When I am focusing on myself and living my own life, I am less drawn to the list of drama-masters above.
So, I am asking you this week to be aware and consider:
a) Where are you getting drawn in by the 'drama-masters'?
b) Who are your BFF's that support and life you up?
c) How can you spend more time with group B and less time with group A?
Being awake and aware is the first step.

p.s. Let me know if you need any support in your awakening process.
This week I’d like to address the fruit and veg in your life.
No I’m not talking about your diet.
I’m talking about when the universe throws rotten tomatoes in your way and you have to decide on the next move ... step over, dodge, turn around, clean it up, eat it or ... ???
Ever had this happen?
Your travelling along ... blissfully happy and unaware of someone else’s brewing issues.
They share the issues with you.
Rotten tomatoes ... in ... your ... face!
Sometimes they share kindly.
Sometimes not so much.
Now you have a choice how to react.
I have to say my normal go to with conflict is to avoid.
I don’t enjoy confrontation.
However, in the last ten years I’ve improved my ‘self worth quotient’ and now I feel a lot more empowered when I am confronted with a rotten tomato.
My self worth doesn’t have anything to do with anyone else.
Yep it’s all about me. 😁
Don’t get me wrong I’m not running into fights willy-nilly now.
I just practice consciously standing in my power and listening to all the points of view before choosing my path.
It can be challenging if there are a lot of rotten tomatoes coming at you.
Fortunately it doesn’t happen often these days, especially since my self worth process has involved removing from my life people and situations that don’t make me feel good.
Some people can really push all our fruit and veg buttons, right?!
And so, I’ve just finished reading ‘how to be your own genie’ by Radleigh Valentine, and I’m putting into practice a new technique...
He says: “... hold up your arms to (the Universe) Heaven and say:
‘Okay, okay. I didn’t like that. But I trust you. I know you love me. I get it. I’m not trapped here. No person or thing can keep me from finding a way to make my dreams come true. So bring on the tomatoes, though if it’s all the same to you, I’m officially now placing my order for white feathers, instead. Show me what direction to go.’
If you can just grasp this concept of ultimate love no matter what is happening in your life - if you can embrace this practice of faith - then you’ll have a far greater power over your own happiness than you can possibly imagine.” P149
So, if I do get tomatoes I wish for them to be squishy and easy to make into a delicious sauce.
But ideally I wish for white feathers, coins, rainbows, and other wonderful signs that will lead me toward loving, supportive, happy and magical experiences.
Always remember you don’t have to clean up someone else’s fruit and veg mess.
This week’s blog is about surprises ...
I’m not sure who said this quote but it resonates on a deep level right now.
“For those who believe (in you) no words are needed. For those who don’t no words are enough.”
Isn’t that so true?
I’ve added the (in you) because I had a surprising incident at work.
In a nutshell, I put up a flyer for my meditation class and I didn’t ask this person if it was okay.
He got upset.
He said I didn’t ask.
I apologised again.
He said it was inappropriate.
I pointed out that this a wellness centre ... how is it inappropriate?
He said he was worried about what I’m saying to the clients.
I’m not sure what he thinks I’m saying?
He took down the flyer (and some other decorative pictures that I'd put up).
I was confused at the intensity of this interaction.
He then called the owner of the business and said he is not comfortable working with me anymore.
And the owners decided to take me off my shifts with him.
And ... no matter what I say they are not changing their mind.
My initial reaction was shock.
I mean, it was a flyer.
Doesn’t that warrant really a ‘slap on the wrist’ warning?
Now if you are intuitive (and most of you are) you know that there has to be something more going on.
When someone has an over-the-top reaction to a small thing, it usually means they’ve been holding onto bigger things. Right?
So, what I have done in the past in this situation is try to convince the owners and the co-worker that I’m a good person.
Tell them that I’d never do anything to knowingly upset anyone.
I’d say “I’ll change myself.”
I’d say “I’ll do whatever you want.”
I’d say “I promise I won’t say anything about alternative wellness ideas to any clients. Ever!”
But ... this time something told me ‘No!’
I have spent the last 15 years teaching myself and others how to be their true authentic self.
How to NOT say those things.
How to NOT change yourself.
How to NOT accept less that you deserve.
The fact is I can’t promise with integrity that I won’t say anything to the clients.
If I see someone struggling with grief or depression or anxiety or stress, I might suggest a meditation or reiki or acupuncture or something loving to do for themselves.
I care about the whole person standing in front of me.
One treatment protocol is not going to address all our issues all the time.
Sometimes you will need a massage.
Sometimes a relaxing salt bath.
Sometimes a meditation.
Sometimes a kinesiology session.
Sometimes a chiropractor.
Sometimes a full weekend healing retreat.
Needless to say it seems that we disagree fundamentally on the concept of holistic wellness.
So, that’s a surprise.
I thought we were all on the same page.
Your life can change in a moment!
Usually it’s because you are not being served well by the current situation.
My truth is ... the casual shifts I had have been reduced.
So now I have more time for ME to take the next steps of getting my book published and ...
I have more time for YOU. Yay!!
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday appointments are now open for ... all the good stuff ...
- Courses - Reiki, Crystals, Meditation, Angels and Animal Spirit Guides
- Treatments - Reiki & Bowen
- Readings - Cards and Mediumship
Let me know what you need.

This week's blog is about random spot-on intuition ... have you had it?
I remember my dad entering the kitchen when I had brought my new boyfriend home to meet the family.
He wandered into the room and sang loudly ... (I think it was a Beatles tune) ... “happy jack was there but he wasn’t very happy”
And we all laughed:
Then we paused.
And we looked at Jack.
He looked surprised.
I said ‘Dad ... why did you sing that? Jack isn’t unhappy...’
‘I don’t know’ ... he said shrugging ... ‘it just came to me.’
The he wandered out of the room whistling.
I felt a bit uneasy, and had a feeling of 'knowingness' in my stomach. (*Note: I didn’t know it was ‘knowingness’ back then).
‘Are you unhappy?’ I asked later.
But Jack assured me he was good. He said he was enjoying the visit. And he was keen to do some travelling around Oz.
Little did we know ... Dad was right.
After that day in the kitchen there were a series of events that lead to the relationship ending.
And when I look back now I have to say Dad’s song was spooky in its accuracy.
Have you had that happen to you?
I called it “random spot-on intuition” ...
And although people normally think women are the only ones who are intuitively switched on, I’ve met some pretty cool men who are tapped in to their intuition all the time.
If you’ve ever made a comment like my Dad that made people gasp, or look surprised, and then they stutter and say ‘What!?? No no no no ... I don’t know what you’re talking about ... I’m fine.’
The key here is that they look like they aren’t fine.
They feel to you like they aren’t fine.
Their tone of voice is somehow 'off'.
But their words are saying otherwise.
Have you been there?
So, here are some tips for you to trust your intuition.
Look ... at their face, eyes, body ... are they sweating, looking down, fiddling with hands, or breathing shallowly, ...
Feel - what is YOUR body doing as they speak ... do you feel tense, nauseous, jumpy, wobbly, angry, hot, cold, lonely, afraid, ...
Hear - listen to their tone of voice. Are they saying ‘I’m happy, fine, good’ ... but their tone is angry, sad, or frustrated. Sometimes their volume will be louder than it needs to be. ‘I’m FINE!’ ...
A lot of the time we may not know on conscious level that we are not happy.
Jack didn’t know on that day back in that kitchen.
He was sure things were going well.
Our subconscious mind or inner truth shows itself through the mirror of our body language.
Pay attention to these intuitive cues and you’ll learn a lot more about people than the words they speak to you.
We are all capable of tapping into a more conscious version of 'random spot-on intuition' ...
Trust me. Trust yourself.
If you need any more tips or support let me know.
