5 More First Dates

The Lunch Date I was: Nervous, wrapped up, plait swinging. It started with: Me going to hug him as he held out his hand to shake mine. He was: Intense. Wry. To –the- point. Buttoned-up. Reminded me of: Alan Rickman. We talked about: Travel. Sydney. War. Property. We laughed about: Me insisting he try theContinue reading “5 More First Dates”

The Frequency of Love

Recently I’ve felt like I’ve tuned in 111.11 Love FM. Perhaps it’s because I’ve started this online dating caper or this Kinesiology course caper but my life feels like it’s being narrated by Cameron Daddo for Smooth FM (sit back, relax, run yourself a bubble bath…) and the soundtrack is the refrain from the Beatles/Continue reading “The Frequency of Love”

Meditation ruling the nation

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a person in pursuit of personal development must be in want of a meditation practice. Meditation is the cure-all for everything. Stressed? Meditate. Tired? Meditate. Anxious? Meditate. But it is much easier said than done especially when the process of meditating can be frustrating, challenging and boring. AppContinue reading “Meditation ruling the nation”

Core Desired Feelings

Core desired feelings are the way you want to feel daily. They’re not destination driven like some goals but are based on the way you want to feel most often. Not just when you’ve achieved these goals but when you’re on the way to achieving them and all the times in between. Danielle LaPorte says,Continue reading “Core Desired Feelings”

Introverted

Please don’t be alarmed if you see me fleeing the scene of a party. You see I’m an introvert (shock horror! Not you with the cat and the i-view). I need regular spells of alone time to decompress and cope with time spent in public. My idea of a good time is reading a bookContinue reading “Introverted”

Nice for what?

I have oft been accused of being ‘too nice’ especially when I was doing teacher training. The implication being that students/the general population would take advantage and tread over me like a wafer-thin rug. That to be a proper teacher/ person I must toughen up, speak sharply, react abruptly and come down hard. But asContinue reading “Nice for what?”

Give what you want to receive

I’ve been thinking, I’ve been thinking (Beyoncé style) about the statement, ‘give what you want to receive’. When we’re feeling in need of something like love, attention, money and food, we are often not giving them ourselves but withholding them instead. A Course in Miracles says, “Miracles are teaching devices for demonstrating it is asContinue reading “Give what you want to receive”

What’s the magic word?

Are manners a thing of the past? Are they outdated in our modern day society of quick fixes and emojis and getting straight to the point and not pussy footing around (even if you’re a cat). I think not. A please shows respect, a thank you can make someone’s day, manners make the world goContinue reading “What’s the magic word?”

Space Clearing

Recently I took my love of house cleaning to a new level with a space clearing. I have decluttered and cleaned and now I have cleansed. Just as literal stuff can clog up your home, so can energetic stuff. It needn’t be as extreme as ghost-hunters but energy from you and previous residents can getContinue reading “Space Clearing”

Law of Attraction

Everything is a vibration, like attracts like, energy out equals energy in. These are ways that the law of attraction has been described. It’s a woo woo one today guys! It can be hard when you want something, not to focus on the lack of it but this is what we must do to attractContinue reading “Law of Attraction”
