  • Strong soul…

    Life doesn't get easier, you get stronger

    Even when a storm comes and rocks you, there is safety within.

    It’s not about what’s happening around you on the outside world, it’s about what’s happening inside of you, your internal world.

    It’s easy to be strong when life is going the way you want it.

    It’s easy to be strong when positivity comes naturally.

    Real strength comes from braving the storms, riding the waves and withstanding the hurricanes.

    Life doesn’t get easier, you get stronger.

    Strong soul

    There are times in life where you have to sit in the discomfort; the pain; the unpleasant; the chaos 🌀

    These are the times where you are being called to go within.

    To tap into your inner strength; inner resilience; inner essence.

    These are the times you get to know your true self — your soul that cannot be messed with.

    Your power isn’t determined on controlling the outside, it’s from calming and braving the inside.

    Your world, your domain ⚔️

    As Haruki Murakami says: “When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” ⛈️

  • I’m grateful for…

    I'm grateful for...

    I’m grateful for all that my heart feels.

    I’m grateful for the way it beats with pride and joy.

    I’m grateful in the way it floats with excitement and swells with tenderness.

    I’m grateful when it feels heavy and anchored.

    I’m grateful when it feels like it’s being crushed alive.

    I’m grateful when it swoons with delight and wonder.

    I’m grateful when it beats slowly and gently.

    I’m grateful when it races to the rush and thrill of it all.

    I’m grateful when it aches and I feel every time it bleeds.

    I’m grateful when it rushes off the cliff and suspends itself for a moment in time.

    I’m grateful because my heart reminds me I’m alive.

    Allow yourself to feel it all

    With all the emotions arising from the potent energies we’ve experienced; it is my hope that you let them flow like water.

    Allow yourself to feel it all.

    Every layer.

    Every shift.

    Every ounce.

    Be in the flow instead or resisting it.

    And then you will feel free… 🦋

  • Welcome to the darkening of the light

    Dark & Light

    Welcome to the darkening of the light.

    Just like winter or the dark night of the soul, we need darkness to ultimately find the light.

    We need darkness as a veil to what is growing beneath the surface.

    What surfaces is your endurance to channel your crisis into change.

    It is time to surrender your heart and soul to the universe.

    Shed like a snake what no longer serves you.

    Let go and flow with where the steam of life wants you to go.

    Listen to the rhythm and beat of your heart.

    Surrender your soul to the alluring pull of what you desire.

    Release your fears and doubts, child of the universe.

    The stars and angels are always supporting you.

    You are exactly where you need to be right now.

    When the world is dark your inner light shines bright.

    Allow yourself to change...

    🎢 Life is a rollercoaster of experiences and emotions driven by the highest of highs and lowest of lows.

    The feels can be excruciating.

    To feel so deeply.

    Heartache and pain contrasted with liberation and ecstasy.

    From a spiritual point of view our soul chose to get on this ride.

    To learn.

    To grow.

    To expand.

    Your soul is hungry for experiences and emotions that nudge you into alignment.

    The depth of darkness and shadow you feel also opens up the limitless love and joy you can also feel.

    Allow yourself to change.

    Allow yourself to merge with your shadow.

    On this rollercoaster of life one minute we are up and the next we are down… and it will continue to go on. Otherwise wouldn’t life be boring?

    Enjoy it for all that life is – it’s only temporary anyway!

  • CHANGES…

    Change pushes you to expand...

    Why do you only want change if it’s on your terms?

    That is not how change works.

    Change pushes you to expand.

    The circumstances of life and the universe will show you what is happening.

    Some doors are closed to redirect you.

    A door to another path will open and show you another way of doing things.

    Rejection is protection.

    You cannot control the pace of change.

    It just happens and is inevitable, so you might as well embrace it because you’ll emerge stronger, wiser and smarter than before.

    Trust and surrender...

    There’s one common thing that most of us do that stops us from growing and changing 👀

    That very thing?

    The desire to control.

    So very human of us.

    You are a powerful creator collaborating with the universe and life force itself.

    You’ll find your life fill with more ease when you realise the only thing you can control is you.

    Your inner reality.

    Choosing what thoughts you’ll follow and go into the rabbit hole with.

    Choose your perspective on the world and what you’ll do with those feelings.

    Choose your impact on the world through the way you move and what you do.

    No matter how hard you try — you cannot control life.

    It’s the beauty of life, it will unfold as it should.

    Trust and surrender beautiful soul 🌊

    Let go of the heavy need to control it all because you can’t and why would you want to?

    It would be a heavy task and where’s the fun in that?

    Enjoy the ride 🦋

  • Don’t wait, elevate…

    Sometimes we wait...

    Sometimes we wait for the things we want.

    The right opportunity to show up.

    The right person to show up.

    The right timing to show up.

    Here’s the thing, life isn’t about waiting.

    You don’t have to wait to be in a relationship to feel love.

    You don’t have to have lots of money to feel abundant.

    You don’t have to be at the top of the career ladder to feel successful.

    You don’t have to have it all to be grateful.

    Realise that the motivation underlying all our desires, is because we want to feel a certain way.

    Figure out that feeling and you can find a way to tap into it now because if you’re waiting, you’re not living.

    We never know the true value of a moment until it’s gone…

    Life is all about LIVING

    Life isn’t about waiting after all you are dying everyday. Life is all about LIVING ❤️‍🔥

    A part of being human and living is FEELING.

    You aren’t a robot, you are a soul having a human experience.

    To feel, is to live, is to be here now in the present moment.

    Forget the past, forget the future be here now.

    You can tap into all you desire RIGHT NOW.

    It’s not about time or waiting for an external circumstance to happe

    It’s about reconnecting within and choosing how you want to feel – because you get to choose, you have the power.

    When you shift your internal world, your external world will reflect it.

    So why wait another minute, day or year?

    There’s only one guarantee in life and that is you will die.

    Who knows when?

    Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed so live now, feel it all.

    Make the most of this moment.

    Of every moment.

  • The past will take you hostage

    The past...

    If you’re not careful, the past will take you hostage.

    You’ll carry it like a momento in your wallet and it will weigh you down.

    You’ll watch as everyone else seems to have moved on except you.

    You’ll torture yourself in the ‘what ifs‘, ‘could have beens‘ and ‘if onlys‘.

    You’ll chase the feelings of the past.

    You’ll try to recreate it here and now.

    You aren’t who you used to be, you’ve inevitably changed.

    You don’t have to be who you used to be.

    Know that you cannot hold onto the memories, they will fade.

    Life goes quickly and we cannot waste it reminiscing on what was.

    You can't change what has already happened...

    If you’re struggling with the past, you’re struggling with your mind because it’s clinging onto memories and wondering what they mean.

    The last is dead and gone but you’re desperately trying to resuscitate it.

    Without your mind, the past simply wouldn’t exist.
    such a “past”.

    You can’t change what has already happened anyway.

    Yet the unconscious mind loves to fixate on it.

    As if worrying, obsessing, replaying will change anything…

    The unconscious mind becomes deeply intertwined with the stories – fixated, attached, longing for what has been.

    The past cannot be behind you if it is present.

    The path out of the past is built upon the foundations of consciousness.

    Awaking the inherent power that lies within everyone already — awareness and presence.

    Melting the resistance to this moment: the only true moment here in the now.

    The unconscious mind does not exist in the light of consciousness in the present moment because it cannot hide or pretend to be the past (or even future).

    You aren’t your past, you are the power and presence of consciousness.

  • Who are you?

    The jigsaw puzzle of life

    Stories aren’t just found in fairy tales, books and movies.

    We live inside stories that our mind creates and identifies with.

    Our brain pieces these stories together to create the ultimate story of ‘me’.

    The voice inside your head has created ‘you’ by weaving together pieces of your past experiences and what you believe to be true.

    It all then pieces together like a jigsaw puzzle.

    Only certain pieces make it into this jigsaw puzzle.

    The great unlearning...

    So who are YOU really? You aren’t these stories, you are what’s beneath them all. Pure consciousness — soul.

    Have you observed this story telling?

    The stories vou believe in the form of “l”.
    I am the type of person who…

    I am not like that because…

    I am not worthy because..

    I believe that…

    I am right because…

    The stories make us feel a certain way, the stories have us act a certain way.

    Your true self doesn’t identify with the stories.

    Your true self is in your expression, being, essence and knowing.

    There’s nothing to defend, assert, prove or cling onto.

    You haven’t done this knowingly – it has instinctively happened through your experiences and conditioning.

    You aren’t who you think you are – you are the presence underneath and behind all the layers.

    You awaken to your true self when you become conscious of this and free yourself from the stories.

    You are.

    So freeing, so powerful – to break free from the stories and simply be.

    This is the great unlearning…

  • Grateful for this life

    Grateful, thankful and blessed

    At times it can feel like life isn’t perfect and neither am I.

    Even knowing and experiencing that, I am grateful.

    I am grateful when I did not get what I want because life was protecting me.

    I am grateful when life stepped in and gave me a life greater than I ever imagined for myself.

    I am grateful that everything that seemed to be going wrong was really steering me in the right direction.

    I am grateful for all the sadness, struggle and pain because life provided a contrast to truly appreciate all the beautiful moments, the highest of highs.

    I am grateful for the hardships I have faced because I have gained strength and wisdom that I never would have otherwise.

    I am grateful to still be here because traversing rocky roads have led me to conquer mountains I never thought I could.

    Ultimately I have come to understand through the imperfection, that really, life is perfect and who I am right now is exactly who I am meant to be.

    On perspective...

    Whilst you can’t change or control life circumstances, you’ll always have a choice when it comes to perspective.

    Often in hindsight we can find gratitude for the very things in the moment we dismissed as undesirable.

    Never underestimate the power you have in any moment to use your mind, not let it use you 🧠

  • The human experience

    Make the most of life...

    There will be moments you ask yourself why you live the life that you do.

    Why everything has unfolded the way it has – the turning points, the challenges, the successes, the past, who you are now and who you are becoming.

    Know that you are divine.

    You are a soul having a human experience.

    That you are a soul that bravely decided to be human.

    Make the most of the life you have because one day it will become a fleeting memory.

    Make the most of the life that you have, because we never know when the ride will end.

    Make the most of the life you have because it is the most precious gift.

    Make the most of life because it is always changing and that is the human experience – to feel it all.

    The human experience...

    What if you could have the perspective that you chose this all?

    Every moment of elation.

    Every moment of heartache.

    Every circumstance.

    Every challenge.

    All with the purpose to expand and grow in this lifetime for your soul.

    To grow isn’t easy or comfortable in fact it’s often challenging and painful (that’s the point!)

    Sure there are times we grow in ease but I’m more often than not it’s outside the comfort zone.

    All in all it’s the human experience your soul chose to have.

    This life is a blip in the string of many lives you’ve had and will continue to have, make the most of this beautiful experience and adventure.

    How we feel colours our lives adding depth, texture and tone.

    Our emotions are energy in motion (e-motion) that long to be experienced and pass through us, we are the divine channel they move through.

    I honour the divine in you beautiful soul who bravely chose to be human and live the life that you do 🙏🏽

    Inspired by the awakening perspective of @lilireinhart with @jayshetty:

    “If I started out as this celestial being, just energy, and the universe or God or whomever said, ‘Hey, do you want to go to Earth for an incredibly short amount of time, like a blip, and experience every emotion that you could possibly feel as a human? You get to have all these experiences: love, heartache, anxiety, joy, euphoria, whatever. All of it. Do you want to do that?’

    Yeah, I do.

    And so when I am feeling these intense feelings, it’s sorta like a reality check to step outside and say, although this is a very uncomfortable, painful feeling, it’s quite beautiful that I have the capacity to experience it. That is sort of something that I use to ground myself when I am stuck in a feeling of darkness.”

  • There’s hope… and help

    It is my hope...

    Sure there will be times you question life, question the universe and even question yourself.

    It is my hope that you never forget how strong and resilient you are.

    It is my hope that you never forget how far you have come even when you did not think you would make it through.

    It is my hope you remember that you are so loved and your presence is a huge light in this world.

    It is my hope that you remember you are so loved and it wouldn’t be the same without you here.

    It is my hope you remember the impact you have on the people around you and the community at large.

    It is my hope you remember that you are not alone, that help is always available, you have the power and choice to reach out.

    Keep going, you've got this

    A message to you during tides of changing times 🌊

    You might not feel strong right now but that doesn’t mean you aren’t… you are because you’re still here.

    It’s in these moments of discomfort where we truly grow beyond what we think we are capable of…

    Expand beyond what we thought was possible…

    It can feel lonely but you are never alone — you have a whole team on the other side supporting you always with unconditional love.

    Keep going, you’ve got this 👊🏽
