When I started writing, I didn’t set out to write a book.

I started writing because I had been through a traumatic experience and realised that mainstream beliefs and advice were not true.

I was beginning to connect and needed to get it out.  At that time I was rambling my thoughts to friends.  Writing helped to clear my mind.

Had I known then, I would have to do something with this knowledge – to share and help others – would I have started?

Likely not.

I didn’t realise it would be a marathon.

I didn’t realise I would have to deepen my commitment and strengthen the connection to myself.

I didn’t realise the depths I would have to go to or the pain I would face in being able to share this with others. 

Steve Jobs says in his Standford commencement speech that we cannot connect the dots looking forward, only when we look back in time.

You might have no idea what you are capable of being or becoming. Perhaps like me you are in a bubble and can’t see the bigger picture. Perhaps, the opposite is true, you see quite clearly and it scares you to death.

So, you never start.

The cure is the same regardless of your situation.

You have take a step.

One step.

For some of my clients that one step, is getting out of the house after building a safe cocoon. For you it may be to book a class, read a book or write a plan.

Fear stops you taking that step.

You will come up with elaborate excuses and drama’s to keep you from doing that one thing.

If you focused continually on the next step, life would unfold naturally and simply.

Strangely, after the first step, it’s not so difficult anymore.

With each step, reaching your goal becomes easier.

You may be taken off track at times.  Regardless, it is never too late to start. No-one is a lost cause.

Not sure what the next step is for you?

Ask yourself what you are afraid of doing? Fear is usually a good place to start.

Once you are clear, don’t think big picture, big plans or fantasy land.

Just start.

Take one step.

As we enter 2020 a recurring theme has come up in my classes and coaching conversations....

Listening to and using your voice.

Two conversations made me reflect as 2019 came to a close.

The first, a lady who is healing from a mental health diagnosis. She had a bad experienced going to a one day workshop where the popular coach claimed you could heal in a day.

Throughout the day, there were red flags. Her voice said no.

The second conversation was with a lady who spent many years in an unethical relationship with her therapist who mis-used his power. The flags appeared early on, however, it was many years before she was able to listen to this voice and use it to say no more.

In October, when I spoke at The Body and Soul Fayre, I was asked by someone looking to heal, what books they should read or what teachers they should listen to.

I told him, as much as I would love to advise, I was unable to do so. You see, every book or teacher has been placed on my path at the right time, to help ME move forward.

Every book or teacher will be placed on your path to as you look to go deeper and heal. You can listen to recommendations, however, only you will know if is right or not.

In the conversations mentioned above, there are clearly some individuals who claim to be healers who are misinformed or not acting ethically. How do you know who to listen to?

The red flags. The ladies above were both aware of the red flags. The feeling something wasn't right. Their voice. The first lady trusted her intuition instantly, the second got there eventually.

From listening to some astrologers who I respect, we have some big transitions in 2020. I will continue to use my voice to heal and I will share more on this page and my blog to help you do the same. 💛

Happy New Year
