When was the last time you trusted your intuition? For thousands of years we have trusted our intuition and our gut feeling – we have used both to successfully guide us and help us survive amongst our own species, against permanent threats, and drastic changes in the environment. But we’ve come to a point in time when modern work values and lifestyle seeded on logic and reason have taken over and alienated us from our intuition - our inner wisdom compass. Have you ever experienced a feeling, a hunch, a strong physical...

Yang; our doing side Last month, as we celebrated Mother’s Day, we explored our Yin energy: the feminine energy that resides in us all. If you missed it, click here. This Father’s Day month we will dedicate this newsletter to our Yang side; our masculine side that, like Yin, resides in both women and men. Our Yang side allows us to drive our lives with enthusiasm, complete tasks, stay focused and get things done. It’s the outflow of our energy. When our Yang energy is low we start to feel overwhelmed, tired,...

Yin: our ‘being’ side   Happy Mother’s Day! May you enjoy a relaxing and restful day, pampered by your precious loved ones. Moms are blessed with the most rewarding, yet challenging, role in the world. No other job willingly engages our heads, hearts and hugs 24/7, 365, forever. So, a little TLC from your little people is well and truly deserved on this special day. This month’s newsletter is dedicated to our Yin side - our feminine side, residing in both women and men, that allows us to rest, relax and enjoy the moment! What...

What is the one thing that would make 2017 different? Every year we set new goals and aim to achieve different things. March hits and many of us realize we’ve made little to no progress. Life gets the better of us, the unplanned happens, and before we know it December rolls around. And we’re left thinking: “Where did my time go? Maybe next year...

Creating Awareness; the things I can change It’s been a while since we last connected. I’ve missed writing to you these past few months however I needed to focus my undivided attention on addressing significant life changes, grief and confusion and my journey to renewed energy and hope. At some point in our lives we’ve all been thrown curveballs – unexpected circumstances that have threatened to derail us, especially when combined with life’s daily stressors. I would like to dedicate this year-end issue to creating awareness of the things we can...

This month, as we acknowledge World Health Day, let’s think about our family health genes. Are our physical, mental, emotional and energetic health challenges entirely our own or are they an unavoidable consequence of our relationships with grandparents, parents and siblings?   In her groundbreaking book “Childhood Disrupted – How your biography becomes your biology; and how you can heal”, award-winning science journalist Donna Jackson Nakazawa explores the link between our life experiences and adult illnesses. Scientists now know on a bio-chemical level exactly how traumatic life experiences such as family violence,...

This month, people across the Globe will celebrate Easter: a festival and holiday that marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Perhaps, at this time, we too can be inspired to rise again in the face of adversity. How many of us have faced traumatic life challenges and changes, setbacks and sufferings, insecurities and uncertainties? There may be times when we have felt that we don’t have the strength to stand up and go forth but please remember: deep within us lies our personal power to rise and live...

We hope you enjoyed Saint Valentine’s Day – a sweet (or, maybe soppy!) occasion to celebrate love, romance and affection with that special someone. On this day, you can unabashedly wear your heart on your sleeve and shower your loved one with flowers, chocolates and gifts. Human beings thrive on love and healthy, happy relationships. Without these, we become emotionally dysfunctional. Which is why I want you to consider this month as an opportunity to think not just about your love for others but also for yourself. Only by loving and...
