It is time to Dare Mighty Things!
Come on people! The world we live in is changing. In so many ways. Listen to your intuition – your gut. You know it’s true. It’s time to be brave. To live authentically, consciously, spiritually and in connection. It’s time you really got to know yourself and what you were put on this planet to do….and go do it. Imagine if we all did what we knew instinctively we were meant to do. As a planet all our needs would be fulfilled because we all have our own special skills and talents, big & small. If we simplified things, got back to basics, pulled together and all contributed in our own special & unique way, I believe we would all lead much happier, peaceful, fulfilled, healthy and abundant lives. This blog will be a testament to that. It will introduce you to tips and tools to live a conscious and connected life and it will introduce you to people that are living their truth, being brave and DARING MIGHTY THINGS!
The truth is, we are all one and we are connected by the energy of love. As we fall in love with ourselves and connect to our truth, we can connect to others and beyond. To serve ourselves and then serve our world is the Daring & Mighty dream.
I am encouraged every day by people I meet who are daring mighty things. Their vision, bravery & experience inspire me to stay on my own special path. If you have a story that is DARING and MIGHTY please share it with me! Either email me: email@example.com or share with our Facebook community.
Us gals love a quiz, don’t we. Come on, admit it! I bet you secretly do the Q&A’s in the glossy mags!! Wanna know if you are living a life that is Daring and Mighty? Here’s 10 quick questions for you to consider…. 1. Your partner has decided to join his buddies after work for a few drinks. Do you: a) Say, ‘Enjoy yourself babe, you deserve a night out!’ then spend the evening lamenting, ‘It’s alright for HIM! I never get to go out!’ while numbing out your hurt and lonely feelings with a few glasses of wine and TV. b) Say, ‘But you...read more
It is so important to practise self-care and to really look after yourself in order to feel connected; to maintain a high vibration; to feel in your own power so that you can serve others to your highest level. For me, self-care means nurturing both my body and my spirit – after all we are spiritual beings embodied. So my self-care ranges from meditation and journaling, burning candles, having hot baths, going to the spa for a steam, walking in nature, playing with my son and generally doing whatever I can to feel really connected....read more
This week self-compassion has been on my mind and I’ve been wondering why it’s often so difficult to accomplish. We are so frequently hard on ourselves and find it easier to beat ourselves up rather than viewing ourselves as a small child and treating ourselves with kindness, sympathy, gentleness and benevolence. In those moments of harsh self-criticism, in order to effect more self-compassion I try to look at myself as if I’m a small child. I use my son as an example: I consider how I treat him. In particular, I consider how I...read more
I have been spending time this week getting clarity on my money story. Gulp! Did you know that your root chakra is linked directly to relationships and money? This first energy centre relates to our most basic survival needs and our sense of belonging. Unsurprisingly, as I dived deep (& I mean deep!) into my family history and hence my own beliefs and behaviours around money, I was suddenly hit with excruciating lower back pain (corresponding with the root chakra). I accessed fears around money that are so deeply at the core of my...read more
Today on the couch I felt the need to hear and share a mantra – RaMaDaSa. You can view it here. It is a healing mantra which I often use with clients on the back of doing a piece around forgiveness and when we are in a space of needing really deep healing. This song is just gorgeous and it is so transformational if you let it be. I have mentored ladies in the past who were rather skeptical about ‘hippy-dippy’ chanting but who allowed themselves to open-up with the beauty of the music. They shifted their views and recovered...read more
January. It really is a time for some blue-sky thinking despite the interminable clouds. My mantra for 2014 is wellness. Just say it for a moment: “wellness”, “wellness”. Don’t you think that the word itself has a vibe of wholesome loving care? I for one, feel soothed just saying it so let me do it one more time: “wellness”. My need for a wellness focus this year is inspired by the self-love focus on the Daring and Mighty programme. Admittedly it may also have been borne out of my family’s sickly Christmas but whilst wellness certainly is...read more
I was doing some journalling the other day and it occurred to me that when I was a little girl, I loved to be organised. I was supremely tidy. My sister used to tease me about my sock drawer being so sorted. I did love to empty that draw and re-organise it! I loved to hang my clothes in colour order. I had all my dolls lined up, just so. My bedroom was immaculate. I kept a budget and a close eye on pocket money coming in and how I spent it. I saved carefully for Christmas presents and holidays. I was one organised young lady. Hand on...read more
I was thinking the other day about Faith. What it means. Why some people seem to have more than others. When I discovered my own and started building on it. And so forth. I was thinking about this on the back of a call with a client of mine for whom having faith is a brand new concept. For her entire life, she has relied on her intellect to sort things out. If she had a problem, she very naturally attempted to ‘think‘ her way out of it. She searched her mind for a solution. No doubt you can relate to that? I certainly can. I remember when it...read more
Right then, so how does the thought that it’s Christmas next week make you feel. Joy? Blind panic? My bet is that it’s probably somewhere in between. Christmas can be so much fun but it can also be quite a challenge to manage the shopping, the cooking, the entertaining, the family… Here are three top tips for a graceful Christmas 1.Relax your expectations. So often we have an idealised notion of how Christmas should be. We picture a highly stylised TV advert of a loving family (in naff jumpers which are supposed to be ironic but...read more
All the way back in 2009 at the Vancouver Peace Summit, the Dalai Lama said these now infamous words: “The world will be saved by the Western Woman!” We are now heading into 2014 and have you noticed that there is a Self-Love Movement sweeping the world? Teachers, coaches and mentors are bravely standing up and declaring that Self-Love is at the root of, well, pretty much everything! At the root of self esteem, self confidence, self empowerment, positive thinking, happiness …. I could go on…. is Self-Love. It is fundamental to all...read more
