Make Time To Go Within

Screen Shot 2017-09-04 at 8.14.15 am.png

One of my favourite things to do is support people to journey deeply within themselves.

Seeking outside - by buying more stuff, staying busy all the time, and worrying what everyone else is doing and thinking about you - is all a distraction from the only place where true fulfilment can be found.

The time you spend each day in tending to your inner wellbeing will make you a more balanced, kind and energised human being.

The uncomfortable part of going inward is that you will be more aware of the self-destructive tendencies you have, and you will meet the pain you've been avoiding for perhaps many, many years.

This is a large part of why people avoid doing inner work.

We have become afraid of our own shadows... our pain, our self-destruction, our darker aspects.

We think it's easier to escape and stay distracted.

To deny our inner reality is self-abandon.

We all deserve better than that.

You deserve better than that.

There is no shortcut to bypass the inner work and still access deep lasting joy in your life.

No amount of likes, compliments, people or flashy shit can bring you inner peace the way your own self-love, acceptance and presence can.

When you bring awareness (light) to what's hidden (dark), your whole experience of yourself and this world will transform.

If you want to reach the heights of human experience, make going within a part of your day.

Your Inner Child Needs Your Attention

The child you once were is still a part of you.

Somehow, along the way, as we grow older in appearance, we manage to forget that the sensitive little humans who needed love and support back then, are still a part of us, and still need to feel safe, loved and looked after.

Growing older is not about outgrowing the childlike parts of you.

Growing older is becoming whole within yourself.

Shifting from needing the love, support and stability from outside yourself, to cultivating the wholeness, the family, the union from inside.

The mama. The papa. And the child. All at once.

You are all of it.

You can consciously choose to circulate ALL of that energy within your being.

And when you embrace the natural ebb and flow between each of these parts, you'll find your relationship with yourself begins to deepen in the most unimaginable and sacred ways.

Being ALL OF IT gives you permission to adapt the way you treat yourself and manage life situations from moment to moment.

It's knowing when it's time for nurturing, creativity, flow, intuition, exploration, being fiercely protective, a giver and a helper - the mother.

It's knowing when it's time for action, hustle, self-discipline, boundaries, strength, courage, simplicity, power, commitment, decisions - the father.

And it's knowing when it's time to be playful, lighthearted, tender, carefree, sensitive, vulnerable and innocent - the child.

Become whole within yourself by being all of it.

Your inner child needs your love, your attention and your kind words.

Feel into what you need right now and create the space to bring it into your being through your thoughts, energy and actions.

Stretching Yourself Is A Daily Practice

Every day is a new day to stretch yourself and to reveal a little more of your truth to this world.

This year has been SO full of stretchy moments for me...

I've had to rise through obstacles time and time again to reach this point of freedom; where I'm living in Bali, working for myself, running my business online, going on weekly adventures with Lukis, eating beautiful vegan food, truly loving myself, and co-creating epic things with the Universe.

I've done all of this, even when the odds were totally stacked against me on paper.

I've stretched myself to the point of sleepless nights, hustling my a** off, questioning everything, feeling like I'm losing my mind and putting it all on the line because following my dreams is the only option I'm willing to take.

I've said YES to growth, even when a part of me wanted to shut down and say "no, it's too hard".

Whenever I have these moments of overwhelming doubt, or wanting to give in, I know it's yet another invitation for me to rise even higher into honesty, awareness and consciousness.

Sometimes I get caught up, I believe my own stories, and get swayed off track by my own illusions.

But most of the time these days, I can bring light to these moments, and in doing so, I see again.

It's become easier simply because I PRACTICE.

I try to prove my fearful thoughts wrong as often as possible.

I say yes to doing things that terrify me but also deep-down truly matter.

I devote attention daily to opening up to receive the truth - from my inner voice, from others, from the divine.

And every single time I bust through another self-imposed block, I show myself a new way to be.

I teach myself a new kind of normal.

I snap myself out of my trance states and remind myself WE ALWAYS have choices.

Life is offering us opportunities to rise all the time.

When obstacles show up, they can become our greatest teachers and help us rise up, fast.

Open your mind to perceive miracles in these challenges.

Pray to understand and get the point of it all.

Get resourceful and find solutions.

Get humble and offer sincere apologies.

Get organised and find new hacks to spring back faster when you fumble or fall.

And get out of your own way.

Allow things to flow for you - even in their imperfection.

Every day you can rise and every day you can choose your response.

Life will dance with you, or life will fight with you. You get to choose.

Open up. Surprise yourself. Learn. Grow. Discover.

Be a humble student of it all.

That's why we are here 💗

The Greatest Challenge We Face As We Awaken

The biggest challenge to becoming a more conscious human being is that when we know better, we are called to do better.

Waking up is uncomfortable because we eventually have to stop bullsh*ting ourselves and others about every aspect our lives that is out of alignment with TRUTH & LOVE.

For each of us on this path, there comes a time when the truth becomes so obvious, so confronting, and so undeniable that we have to pay attention.

We start to recognise all the excuses we've been making, the ways we've been blaming people or circumstances for our unconscious behaviour, the unhealthy habits we've allowed to linger, the ways we give our power away to others - from our romantic partners, to our peers, the media and political leaders.

It is so easy to say we want to feel good, to be successful, to live an incredible life... but most of the time when these things aren't happening, it's because we are unwilling to get honest and fully SEE, FEEL, HEAR and KNOW the truth of what we are experiencing. We are unwilling to become fully conscious.

We say we want more good to enter, but we've got a list of conditions about how it has to unfold.

Like wanting to be fit but not wanting to put in the work.

Wanting self-love but being unwilling to embrace imperfections.

Wanting to create something new but only if it's a huge success.

Wanting a conscious relationship but bringing all of your most unconscious behaviours to your interactions with this person.

Wanting to be guided by the Universe but fighting the fact that it requires releasing personal control.

This fixed, narrow thinking is the biggest reason why so many of us feel like we are taking two steps forward, one step back with our growth.

We hit our own walls - our own conditions.

We come up against our own unwillingness to meet the whole truth. To be fully conscious.

It's a process. And it takes time.

Living with the willingness to see is the most powerful thing you can do to welcome breakthroughs into your life.

Let yourself see.

Seeing is freedom.

Meditation Is Allowed To Be Simple

I began meditating in 2008 and since then, I've explored a lot of different meditation techniques - from body scanning, chanting, binaural beats, and buddhist meditation, to chakra balancing, self-hypnosis, visual journeys, mantra and mudra meditation.

These days, my favourite way to meditate is to simply slow down and feel.

Nothing fancy. Just quiet time with me and my feelings.

It's this time I take out of daily life that keeps me feeling connected and clear on where I'm at.

It's time where I tune out the external world and go to my inner experience.

And it's a time for me to say to my heart "hey, you matter and I'm here for you."

This is my medicine.

Us human beings love to complicate things (including me). But just taking time out to feel your feelings is really fucking therapeutic.

All you have to do is rest your body and be present with what you feel in the moment.

It's enough.

Make Time For Adventure In Your Life

Saying yes to adventure is a HUGE part of why I am where I am today.

Seeing more of the world has helped me to see more of myself.

It has helped me to see my weaknesses as well as my strengths and get to work on becoming the kind of person I am inspired by.

Travel, more than any other activity, has helped me to see what's possible for my life and our world - because when you step outside of your daily routine and home-life bubble, you realise there is SO much going on in the world and you get to CHOOSE how you want to live in it!

I recently took a trip to Kuala Lumpur loved it so much. It was the exact burst of fresh energy I needed to break up the routine and get my creative juices flowing.

While being in Kuala Lumpur, I made an effort to really soak up the mish-mash of South-East Asian cultures, do ridiculous amounts of walking, and of course eat epic vegan food.

It was nothing fancy, but it was an absolutely amazing trip that brought huge value to my life, and I returned to Bali feeling so much brighter than before I'd left.

Whether it's exploring a new part of town, going on a road trip or jumping on a plane to the other side of the world, adventure is available to every single one of us.

Get creative, get out there and go do it💕
