Game Changer

We are the creators of our own happiness. Only we can choose

How we see things

What we focus on

How things make us feel

Who we surround ourselves with

What we put into our bodies

How we spend our time

How we experience things

We can consciously choose to focus on the positives, & what is happening for us, rather than what is not happening

We can choose to focus on the good in ourselves & others

We can choose to be grateful for the simple things – for each day, for each breath

We can choose to allow things to get us down, or we can choose to look at our reactions & what we might really need

We can choose to give out all of our energy, or we can choose to consider our needs & make ourselves a priority

We can choose to say no to the people, events, foods, etc that don’t align with us, that don’t fulfil us or make us feel good

We can choose to rely on others for our own happiness, or we can take responsibility for ourselves & ask ourselves what we truly need (& listen to the response)

We may not be able to choose the weather, or what is happening to those around us, but we can choose what we make of each day, where we want to be, & how our external factors affect us.

We get to choose how we show up each & every day

And when we realise how much choice we have, the game truly changes

Take a deep breath, pause & decide.

How do you want to feel?

How do you want to be seen?

The power of art

How do you calm your mind?

For me, creating my first Mandala & giving myself space, guided me further on my path to unlocking my soul’s purpose ✨

Before that, I hadn’t given any thought or time or space for art & it’s form of creative meditation.

Art is so powerful. We can’t underestimate the power of creating, big or small.

Art brings to the forefront our truest selves, our deepest thoughts, feelings & fears.

The process of creating art is truly transformational, in the depths of the calm mind one can truly discover their soul’s purpose.

Art has the great ability to calm & focus the mind.

Giving yourself the space to create is the greatest gift 💛

When was the last time you gave yourself the space to create?

When was the last time you did some art?

How could doing some art help you?

I’m so glad I said yes to the experience with my bestie, & conquered my fears & self doubt, because the experience of creating my first Mandala & immersing myself in art has changed my world ✨

If you would love to give yourself a creative outlet, I have spots available in my upcoming Mandala Painting Workshops, why not get your friends together & make a day of it?

If something ‘arty’ sparks your interest, I encourage you to give it a go! Your soul is giving you a hint to get creative & the benefits are endless 💖

Shedding

Just as trees shed their leaves, & some insects shed their skin, so too do we go through phases where we need to shed in order to grow.

And it is okay to shed.

Letting go of what no longer serves us is how we learn & evolve.

Letting go of ideas, ideals, relationships, things, ways of thinking, beliefs, is how we make way for the new. How we grow & change. How we are challenged to become more resilient.

It is okay to shed your ‘old skin’ in order to become more aligned with who you truly are & where you want to be. With more of what sets your soul on fire.

Shedding our leaves is what makes way for new growth.

Seasons change, & things change. Just like Mother Nature, we too need to adapt & shed to flourish.

Don’t be afraid to shed what is no longer in alignment for you.

It is your time to blossom 🌿🌼💖

Savouring

The act of savouring appears to be a lost art for so many of us.

What do I mean by savouring?

The pure joy within when we truly drink something in. When we give it our full focus & attention without a single distraction. When we feel it with all of our senses. When there is no room in our hearts or minds for anything else in that moment.

When was the last time you truly savoured something?

That bath

That book

That cup of tea or coffee

That sunset

That conversation

That embrace

That chocolate

That walk or run

That song

That bunch of flowers

That view…

We’ve become so focused on this need to be doing all the time, & doing so much, that we’ve forgotten how to savour.

We’ve become so attached to being connected & plugged in that we aren’t switching off enough.

We’re not savouring the little things, that really aren’t so little at all.

Give yourself the gift of savouring.

Make time to sit quietly with that coffee. Feel the warmth of the cup. Breathe in the strong aromas. Notice the marks being made on the cup with every enjoyable sip.

Run that relaxing bath. Notice the softness of your skin as the warm water washes over it. Enjoy the quiet calm without reaching for the distracting phone. Soak in the smells of soap suds or oils or candles burning.

Really absorb that cuddle. Feel the points at which you both connect, soft t-shirts, or their little arms around your neck. Notice the smells of washed hair, perfumes, fresh breath or sweets consumed. Spy each little freckle on scrunched up noses.

Savour.

It’s so important that we remember this simple art, & that we practice regularly so as not to forget. For in savouring, we can find joy & inner peace from the smallest of things, that really aren’t so small at all 💛

More Magnificent Mandalas

What an amazing day yesterday, working with this wonderful group to create their masterpieces 😍

To start, they were all nervous, unsure of what they wanted to create, & then they trusted the process, followed what they were drawn to, let go of fears, & created stunning pieces that they were so proud of & did not expect to create – I LOVE it!! ❤️

A year ago today, I painted my very first Mandala at the inspirational Karen Scott’s Mandala Magic workshop in Victoria. Less than 5 months later I started my first evening workshop, sharing my space with others, & one day short of 12 months later, I ran my first full day workshop.

When you know, you know 💛

I went to bed last night with so much gratitude in my heart for having been introduced to Karen & Gary & the amazing work they do.

For being able to create my own space to share this beautiful tool of creative self exploration & care.

To give so many the much needed opportunity to take time out of their busy lives to calm their minds & create.

For the support I have to enable me to do what I love so much!

If you’d love to join me on this journey, my next evening series will start on Tues 12th Feb & my next full day workshop is on Sunday 17th Feb in Atwell.

Looking forward to supporting you through this beautiful process 💛

Creating space

Last night, I was reflecting on the beautiful spaces I have, how they came about, & what inspired them.

They didn’t just come out of the blue, in fact, my painting room would seem it was 4 years in the making, but they both started from creating space for the things I have come to love.

Back when setting up our home & nesting whilst due with our firstborn, I wanted to create a relaxation haven in our then theatre room. I had just had an amazing pregnancy massage at the beautiful at endota day spa, a place that hubby & would treat ourselves to on special occasions back in our Melbourne days, & so I was inspired to recreate the feeling of being there, opting for a shade of Endota green on the walls. The room then changed as it became an office space for hubby’s business, but after having set up a painting corner for me in a spare room, we soon realised that this was only the start, & that my relaxation haven that I had created all those years ago would be the perfect space to share my love of painting mandalas with others 🎨💛

Before finding my passion for painting, I found my passion for writing. I decided I wanted to create a beautiful space to further inspire my writings so I set up a corner in our bedroom, bought a desk & a chair, & decorated it to make it my own. Again, after creating space for something I loved, that space evolved as I revisited my Reiki practice at Angel Light Heart and Soul Healing, & we decided to convert our study (which was our much loved dressing room) into a Reiki room / writing space / meditation space, initially for personal use, but now for much more ✨

In doing all these things, in making all these changes, I didn’t knowingly set out to create a room to now be seeing clients for relaxing Reiki / Intuitive Coaching sessions.

I didn’t set out to create a space to be running soulful Mandala Painting Workshops.

It started with a little corner in a room or 2.

It started with being inspired by a place I visited.

It started with recreating a feeling I wanted to feel.

It started with creating space for the things that set my soul on fire.

It doesn’t have to be big, you just need to make space 💛

How can you create a little space for something you love?

A sewing corner, perhaps?

Or a reading nook?

You never know what journey that little space could take you on ✨
