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.
It is interesting how much resistance we can put up in order to protect ourselves from feeling vulnerable. We create stories about why things are not possible but sometimes this resistance exists to keep us in our comfort zones. We all have ‘our fear stories’. I surprised myself with how much resistance I could come up with surrounding the idea of my writing a novel. This resistance simply flowed from my pen and I could have written reams of reasons as to why I can’t write. In the programme, Katie set the three of us a homework...read more
If you are, you know what I mean when I say funk, right? But, let’s break it down for clarity…. exhausted uptight lost purposeless joyless emotional I will leave it there, before we get too depressed looking at that list! DO NOT FEAR! IT AINT ALL BAD! Trust me when I say that what you are feeling is normal and fixable! So, read on… I am going to go out on a limb here and make the presumption that you are a conscious parent. By that I mean your instinct is to put the needs of your wee one’s before your own. You make conscious...read more
I had a fantastic meditative experience recently with one of Katie’s guided meditations entitled “true-self”. Whilst listening, it was incredibly uplifting and grounding to connect with the light inside myself and to visualise it growing until I felt filled with utter radiance. I felt filled with a light that has been with me my entire life, a light that is my true-self; my unique self who was born to contribute something special. I took away the warmth of that experience and a real sense of calm and assurance. I...read more
I wanted to write a piece for working Mum’s so asked a few what they wanted to know more about. One very passionate woman said to me that she found ‘playground politics’ tough. I dug a bit deeper. She said she felt a competitive edge amongst many of the Mums and sometimes suffered feelings of not being good enough. Yep, have heard this one before! It is a real thing for many school Mum’s, whether they work or not. The site of that Mum who glides effortlessly into the playground on time, dressed stylishly with perfect make-up, accompanied by...read more
Wanna know why I love being Daring & Mighty? It’s the constant learning. The ever deepening self awareness. And as I lean into the light and the dark of myself I see the whole picture more clearly. The truth of me is a spectacular tapestry of colourful threads, intricate embroidery depicting a myriad of encounters & experiences, rough textures reflecting harsh truths, menacing folds hiding dark nights of the soul, deliciously smooth curves of awesome vulnerability, shimmering golden threads and dripping diamantes befitting of...read more
Between the workshops, one of several homework exercise that I undertook was a writing exercise about my past. It was called ‘Who is the Captain of Your Life’? In this exercise we were required to do some deep mining of our pasts and look at our parents separately. I read the title of the homework activity and my instant reaction was that it did not matter whether or not I was the captain of my life but how well I related to the crew. I thought about doing the exercise but then thought ‘Naa, I’m just going to read my book...read more
Often we women who are juggling the demands of life, tend to put ourselves last. We know we should be more self-nurturing but life gets in the way. It is easy to come up with excuses like I don’t have the time and I don’t have the money to spend on self-actualisation. We might know that we need to sort out some emotional stuff but we think that we’ll get to it later. We’re just too preoccupied with ‘real’ life right now and it is much easier to just shove our ‘stuff’ to the side and get on with things. But how good do you actually feel...read more
So how did I come across Daring and Mighty? It’s funny how things happen in life. We’ve all heard the old cliché “it’s all part of the journey” but I guess in every cliché there is a truth however well-worn. Life is a journey and we just need to read the signposts. There was a time in my life, when I was so unconnected and so filled with self-doubt, that it almost bordered on self-loathing. I was out of touch and graceless and it was all because I hadn’t healed my stuff! Now I won’t pretend that this isn’t a life-long process. Of...read more
Ok, so this is my first grace note which is to be a regular blog contribution about my pursuit of a state of Grace – elusive as it may be! I guess this blog is a testimonial of my Daring and Mighty journey both in life, as well as my own experience of the Daring and Mighty Programme. So what is grace? And how the hell can I get me some? Like all terms, grace probably means something different for everyone. For me this Daring and Mighty journey is about achieving that state of being in-flow, of being connected and inspired. For me, a...read more
One of the tools I encourage the gals that I mentor to do regularly (daily preferably while we are doing such deep change work) is stream of consciousness writing. It’s a form of journalling which allows you to write down everything in your head without it having to be perfect or even to make sense. It is a massive brain dump. Words, thoughts and feelings are all given a way out of your head. All that stuff can be exhausting – especially as most of us are in the habit of allowing our intellect to run the show! The key to...read more
