How often do you hesitate to start working on something if you think you can’t do it? How much do you put off crucial decisions because you're unable to make up your mind? Are you waiting for something magical to happen and be inspired?

For some of us, procrastination is simply the way we function best – we work well und...

Excuses, excuses

Excuses, excuses, we all make them. Do you ever hear yourself say … I don’t have enough time…I don't deserve to…I’m only… I can’t because...

If we really want to do something, we will find a way. If we don’t, we’ll find an excuse. Excuses keep us stuck.

To get clear about our excuses, a good question to ask yourself is ‘what i...

Stretching and growing

This past week, many children have returned to school; some have started school for the first time. I received photos from my niece and also from a friend of their five year olds in school uniform for the first time. How they had stretched, how they had grown, I thought.

Which got me thinking… about growing. I firmly belie...

Stillness

Look what I saw the other day while out walking in Hong Kong! This beautiful green lizard, the largest I've ever seen, perched upon a rock in all his glory. What fascinated me was how still he was. Which got me thinking... the best advice I was ever given about HOW to move through any change or challenge in life was to do so in a way that is supportive and empowering. How easy it is to forge...

In what ways d'you resist change?

Many of us are experiencing challenges right now. It’s as if we are being propelled forward to do things differently. And yet, we may find that we're hesitating. How can we find the courage to go after our heart’s desire? I see us as being here to learn and grow. We grow through change; we can grow through our personal challenges.

Let's talk about it... about growing old... and dying

We talk about how we want to live. I say let’s also talk about how we want to grow old, and how we want to die. After all, it’s going to happen to us all! Over the past 11 months, in taking care of my mum’s affairs and being with my sister who was diagnosed with terminal cancer, I’ve had some conversations I never imagined. They have been necessary; many focused on practicalities. Had t...

Yes...or no?

Whether you’re a parent or not, we all know that stage in a child’s life when, no matter what you ask, the answer is always “NO!” What then happens to change this? Why is it that so many of us are challenged to say ‘no’ …or ask for what we want? When we claim our value, we find our voice and speak passionately about what matters to us.

The mighty oak

Visiting Scotland recently, I couldn’t help but notice the many magnificent, tall oak trees; and I was reminded of the ancient Celts and their love of forests, Mother Nature and the great web of life itself. Many cultures see the oak tree as a symbol of strength and endurance. For me, it's a reminder for us to stand tall and live our soul purpose. As a child, I was once criticised for bein...

Where do you struggle?

Most of us have one area in our life where we struggle. It might be relationships, it might be career, it might be with money or not having enough time. Until we identify the core issue, we repeat the patterns – the same way of thinking and behaving. Over and over again. What if…you could change that? What would it mean to you if....you could have happy relationships where you feel free to ...
