The Happy Mother

I saw this quote earlier this morning on Facebook and it made me realize just how much my motherhood journey has pushed me to grow – but also how long it took me as a mother before I realised just how important a role my own happiness and wellbeing was to both my being a parent, as well as to the happiness and well being of my daughter. Being a happy mother over a perfect one was something that only came to me much, much later in the game…

There’s something about the way our kids know, without us having to say a word, when something’s going on with us – whether we’ve had a day from from hell, are holding back tears, or are so stretched and stressed that the smallest thing sets us off… regardless of how well we think we’re hiding it.

They don’t need our words to know. They can feel our energy.

And it influences the way they act and feel too. Don’t believe me?

Your journey to Self-Healing

Elevate your Life Course - self-healing courseWhy learn about self-healing and holistic (and natural/chemical free) methods of health and wellness?
Or how to use energy healing tools to benefit your, and your family’s, health and wellbeing? 💁🏻‍♀️ I’ll tell you why, Beauty! 🦋

Life is stressful.
For us.
For our partners.
For our kids – no matter how big or small they are.

Our daily lives require a LOT from us – whether we’re being a mom, a sister, a daughter and caretaker, a business woman, helping others, or simply being a friend.
Even our kids have to navigate the pressures of school, friendships, growing up, and figuring out who they are!
And then we can throw in all of the social, environmental, and technological noise – are we ever really quiet?
Do we ever really stop?
When we do, it’s usually because we’re unwell or burnt out, right?
Have you ever felt down or apathetic for no reason?
Felt unmotivated and uninspired?
I used to. ALL the time!

Sacred Space: A personal sanctuary

You deserve something special, dedicated to YOU and your self-care! Having a sacred space not only transforms part of your environment into a sanctuary for you, but it gives you a place to visit every day, where you can turn off the noise of the World, and focus inward, on YOU, and what you need.

Simply put, Sacred Space is time and space (an area) that you have intentionally set aside to experience a re-connection with yourself, your Divination, and your Spirit, which usually escapes us in this fast-paced everyday life we live. The object of this is to maintain a healthy and balanced (aligned) connection with your body, your mind, your intuition, your soul (Higher Self / Spirit / Inner Compass), and your emotions.

Now, a sacred space doesn’t have to be crazy! I started with just an incense burner and a chunk of rose quartz on my entrance table. I made a point of burning a stick of incense every day, quietly watching the smoke rise and feeling my stresses melt away, even if it was only for those 10 minutes.

When Personal Development and Self-Healing count the most

Did you know that most women experience a spiritual awakening either during pregnancy or after giving birth?🤰🏻✨

When we become mothers, we go through major shifts on an emotional and physical level, but it also happens on an energetic (or spiritual) level.

Becoming a mom, even while we are still pregnant, there’s a shift in our awareness, not only of this new life that we are growing and protecting, but we become aware of who we are, how we function, what we believe in, who we connect to and resonate with as Divinity, how we feel about ourselves and what kind of person we are. 💕☀️👸🏻

It’s never too late to make the changes you…

“I am so lucky that our paths crossed when it did, because you have helped me in so many ways. The Elevate your Life course has been such an eye opening experience. I’ve learnt a lot from the questions that I had to ask myself. And even though sometimes I felt fear of the answers to those questions I pushed through and felt so much stronger at the end. I go back to my notes every so often and it reminds me of where I want to go and who I am and who I want to become! I will be forever grateful for this course!”

When I started learning about the simple ways that I could regain my calm, create a healthy, happy environment for myself and my family, as well as learn how to use simple and practical tools and methods to restore balance and wellbeing for all of us, I felt EMPOWERED AF!!💪🙌

Inner Child Healing; An Oracle Card Spread

Understanding and Healing the wounds of your inner child goes along way toward understanding how, and why, you view yourself the way you do, as well as understanding a lot of the limiting beliefs and negative emotions that you experience! There is so much that we can learn about ourselves, experiences that we don’t remember, and behaviors that begin to make sense, when we work with our inner child.

There is so much that we can learn about ourselves, experiences that we don’t remember, and behaviors that begin to make sense, when we work with our inner child.

Oracle Cards can be light and ‘fluffy’, but they can also be a deep and insightful tool to use during your journey of self-exploration and healing.

Here’s an Oracle Card spread from the new Module of my Self-Healing Course – Elevate your Life – that you can use towards healing and restoring the energetic balance of your Inner Child; through self-acceptance, the release of control, and by encouraging self-healing through introspection, inner dialogue, meditation, new ideas, forgiveness, and taking proper action in a new and positive manner.

There are too many people walking around crippled by…

Anxiety has become as popular as Prozac was in the 90’s. Now, before I continue I want to make it clear that I am in no way bashing anxiety, as someone who suffered from major anxiety for many years… I know what it’s like. I know how it feels. So no, this is not a bash against those millions of people who have been diagnosed with anxiety, or even chronic anxiety.

What I am hoping to do is show you that anxiety is in fact not what is actually crippling you. It’s not what is holding you back or keeping you from being well.

No. That would be fear.

But fear is not something doctors can diagnose or prescribe medication for.

As humans, we only have TWO real emotions, two emotions that all other emotions stem from – LOVE and FEAR.

Fear is the innate primal response that we have to keep us alive and sense danger (and yes, I mean literally). Anxiety is not fear, it is the distress we create in our mind as a result of being scared, fearful, or in danger. Fear creates anxiety, but it is not the same thing.

When that feeling arises in the pit of your stomach, the clenching in your chest so tight that it takes your breath away – that’s anxiety. That’s the reaction to the fear behind the trigger that you have stored in your subconscious to respond every time you feel threatened or scared or that you’re being pushed beyond your limits of comfort (fight or flight).

When your loved ones are ill and your ‘anxiety’ flares up at the thought of losing someone else you love. That’s actually fear.

When you become so consumed by anxiety at the thought of moving to a new house, job, or any kind of change – that’s actually fear.

When you’re standing in line at the grocer and the person behind you comes a little too close to you and you feel your chest begin to close and the panic step in – that’s actually fear.

Or when your partner hasn’t responded to your text (but has read your text) and you begin to play out a million different scenarios in your mind as to why they haven’t responded – that’s actually fear.

Anxiety also hits us when we feel we are losing control of a situation, our surroundings, or life. But the reality about anxiety is that it isn’t a disease that you need to just accept that you have and to live with it. It can be resolved.

I see so many incredible clients being crippled by their fears and living life just accepting that they can’t do something or achieve what they really want because of their ‘anxiety’. Their anxiety has become their disease, their crutch, their excuse. But their anxiety isn’t actually what’s holding them back – it’s their fear – of change, of failure, of not living up to the standards that they think they need to live up to, of losing someone else, of being alone, of being judged, of the unknown… Anxiety has become an ingrained reaction to something that scares, or scared, the shit out of them, and that fear has now become so natural to them that they believe it’s just a part of how they are, but it’s not and it doesn’t have to be. Fear has been so built up by society as some big, bad, bogeyman that will swallow you whole if you dare get too close. But that’s also complete BS.

Fear is what moves us, pushes us to grow and expand beyond our limits, to continually shift our paradigms, to want more, and to explore new things/places/situations/people. Without fear we would never be able to experience what we don’t like, to know what we do like. And fear doesn’t have to cripple you or hold you back. It too can be healed and released and embraced. Once you understand what the trigger behind the fear (and anxiety) is, it’ll be the best medication you’ve ever taken!

Don’t let anxiety, or fear, be a crutch, a scapegoat, or excuse any longer. Once you’ve made the decision, you won’t believe how liberating your life can become! I promise you. I’ve done it.

Healing from miscarriage – the unspoken shame

Sometimes we celebrate life. Sometimes we celebrate the life that was had. But what about the life that was never quite had but lost? How do you celebrate something that never had the chance to live but the absence of the loss is one of the most painful to experience?

I’m talking about miscarriage.

I’m talking about something that I’ve never spoken publicly about. Something few in my life even knew I had experienced. Something that was never spoken about again after it was “over”.
But something that always hits me unexpectedly every year at its anniversary.

14/02. Valentines Day. The day of love.
But for me 14 Feb 2014 will always be the day I miscarried. The day I felt the worst kind of loss I’ve ever experienced. The kind of pain I pray to never experience again. Was it planned? No.
Was it the right time for a baby? Probably not.
Does any of that make a difference?

Something I learned about right at the beginning of my self-healing journey was the concept of cellular and emotional memory & how our body remembers the trauma that happens to it. It holds the pain & emotion on a cellular level.

So it’s not uncommon to feel the pain of a scar around the time of a past surgery…or to unexpectedly re-live emotions so difficult to wade through at the time of a miscarriage. And the shit part is that even when you’ve released and cried and healed that area of your life, the emotions are still hard to process.

So why am I talking about it now?

It helps me process.

But perhaps also to give others who have experienced the loss of pregnancy and are reminded of the feeling of absence every year without warning or preparation, or to maybe help others understand why you’re feeling that way and to say you’re not alone. And it’s okay. It’s okay to feel the pain of a life that could have been but wasn’t.

And it’s okay to talk about miscarriage, what happened wasn’t shameful, and there certainly wasn’t anything you could have done differently to prevent it from happening.

So, if you are like me, and are unexpectedly reminded of it each year – even when you’re happy and think you have moved on but it still somehow finds a way to creep up and make you feel it all over again… then be patient with yourself. It will pass. So will the pain. You may not understand why it happened now but that will come. Just as you’ll always hold space for the love in your heart. ❤

And if you ever need someone to talk to about it, to help you process the pain, please reach out to me. Miscarriage is not something you need to process on your own.
