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.
This week I am launching a challenge to myself and to you. I want to begin to think differently, to shake things up a little and consider, “what are those things that I have always wanted to do?” Some people call it a bucket-list or a bag-list but I’m going to call it my List of Daring Desires. ‘To Dare Mighty Things’ comes from a Theodore Roosevelt quotation (see below) which I’ve always known, as it was stuck to my Dad’s office wall as I grew up. I used that mantra to help me to be Daring and...read more
It’s seems an age since my last Grace Note and so much has been going on for me since I wrote that way back in January. I have largely stuck to my New Year goal of wellness and this is all good but where I have really been really focussing my attention is on my own spiritual journey and upon articulating my own spiritual story. I have been writing a lot about all of this and have been taking some huge inspiration from some seriously cool chicks out there who are sharing their own spiritual journeys in some kick-ass ways. So get yourself a...read more
I hope so! Today I want to SHOUT about women getting out there, being daring and mighty, revealing the rockin’ diva that you are and generally taking up more space!! Even if we don’t do it consciously, so often we woman identify ourselves with groups for our own sense of self. It could be our national or cultural group, our employment group, our family group our religious group or our friendship group that we tend to resonate with on a cellular level. This is all good as there certainly is a lot of comfort to be found in company...read more
Today I sit in my little garden paradise with the statue of the gorgeous goddess, Eve. I love the mythical element of this powerful woman, the lightness of her draped robes, juxtaposed with the solidity of her form. I love that she is incredibly feminine and powerful. I see Eve as a ‘seeker’. Here she is with her averted gaze and she looks to the distance with the view of one searching. We are all seekers; seeker of truth. In life we all need to realise our own truths and in doing this we come to the universal realisation that there is...read more
Throughout my adult life, I have been ‘edge of bread-crumb girl’. That girl died this week as I claimed the truth that I am supported and deserving of that support. Let me explain. It’s been a tough couple of weeks. The mentoring / coaching profession is not for the faint of heart! No siree! To do my work at the highest level, it is imperative that I continue to grow. To invest in myself. To put myself through the paces. With that, the Universe never tires of sending me new lessons to navigate and sometimes they are seriously...read more
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
