Setting intentions with kindness

December 22, 2018

It’s time for self-talk with kindness At the beginning of the year, I wrote a post about setting intentions. They were areas I wanted to achieve, not actual resolutions per se, but a kinder, intentional approach that I would use as a focus and not beat myself up about. Reader, I lied. I did everything I said I wouldn’t . I’ve been writing my resolutions/intentions for years now.…

September: the start of a new year?

September 13, 2018
change when you don't like change

There is something about September which feels like the start of a new year. I start re-evaluating what I want from life and feel more energetic and purposeful. I’ve always attributed this to the fact that the new school year starts in September in the UK. The last days of summer were spent buying new school shoes and pencil cases preparing for the year ahead. We had new…

Working with the lunar cycle

July 11, 2018

The moon is responsible for lighting at the night’s sky, as well as the earth’s water. The moon’s gravitational force pulls on water in the oceans and creates tides. Spiritually, the moon looks after our emotions: controlling our desires, worries and dreams.  It’s said that as our bodies are made up of 85% water, the gravitational pull of the moon and the lunar cycle affects us too. The moon goes…

How to form good habits

June 23, 2018
form good habits

I’m the patron saint of good intentions. I have lots of ideas and plans, which tend to fall by the wayside. The reason: I haven’t got into good habits. It’s easy to stick to bad habits and harder to take on new behaviours. Our brain has learnt patterns and likes to stick with what it knows. The good news is, there is a process to all this. We…

Letting go of limiting beliefs

March 31, 2018

After my Dad died, it hit me how life was short and I shouldn’t let anything stop me from living my dreams. My Dad had retired at 55 and spent the next 12 years of his life working as a walking guide across Europe. He took a chance – admittedly one with a final salary pension – and lived the rest of his days doing something he loved.…

31 January 2018 and the super blood blue moon

January 29, 2018
Super blood blue moon

What is a super blood blue moon? On 31 January, there will be a lunar eclipse, which is the second one of the month. This one is going to be particularly special because not only will there be an eclipse, there will also be a super moon (which happens when the full moon is closest to the earth), a blue moon (because it’s the second full moon of…

Setting intentions (and not making resolutions)

January 1, 2018
setting intentions

Why I’m setting intentions For years I made resolutions based on becoming the type of person I thought would make me happy: lose weight, save money, drink less etc. They never worked, mainly because they were centred around giving something up. It just became another way to make me feel like I was failing as a person. I’m pretty sure most people hate resolutions for same reasons as…
