Gratitude – The Language of the Heart

Eckhart Tolle says, “If the only prayer you ever say is ‘thank you’, that will be enough.” There is something powerful about living from a place of gratitude. Being eternally grateful and showing gratitude is like speaking the language of the heart. Gratitude is a reminder of how fortunate we are and how magnificent life is. It puts things into perspective and has the power to shift the entire state of our being; emotionally, mentally, physically, energetically, etc. A moment of stress, frustration or annoyance can transform into a state of contentment, happiness and deep appreciation for the endless things …

Lucy’s Women’s Circle Story

Women’s circles came into my life at a time where I was really exploring what it meant and felt like to be part of something larger than myself 🤔 I had friends in many different circles, but was never really part of a larger community or tribe. I knew that this was a missing piece in my wellness puzzle, and felt the pull to further explore this 🙊   I started attending several different women’s circles and gatherings, and regularly went to the one at HYA YOGA that was run by Imogen Bailey from Honouring Heart ❤❤   Each time I …

Who Am I?

Who Am I? Have you ever asked yourself this question? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ Do you define yourself a certain way, with descriptions, labels and concepts? 😎 What comes after your “I am”?? ✌🤩 Your occupation? Gender? Age? Your family role? Your interests or character traits? Something else? 🤸‍♂️🤸‍♂️🤓 Have you looked at what is underneath all these things that are placed after the “I am”? The I Am itself? 🤔 The I Am is the pure being of our nature. Our essence. The Self. True nature. Consciousness. Pure awareness. Love. Everything and simultaneously nothing. A transcendence of language and concepts. It just “is.” ❤❤ All the other things …

Belonging: Is it “out there” or within??

This seems to be part of the universal human condition and is incredibly relevant when it comes to my work in women’s circles. With disconnection and separation (from Self/other/the same), comes concepts that we recognise as sense of belonging, fitting in, lone wolf, individualism, and so on. I went through a natural distancing of longtime close friendships many years ago, once I started walking down the path of health and wellness. I found myself in a place of not knowing where I “fit in” or who my close friends were anymore. This was my life for a couple of years, …

Earthing

E A R T H I N G 🌀🌀🌀 The surface of the earth has an electromagnetic field and so does everything in nature, including us. We are electromagnetic beings. Our cells are electrically charged. Our heart is an electromagnetic organ. Our nervous system runs on electrical currents. This is why we can feel an energetic connection through the heart, tune into a certain electromagnetic frequency, get electrocuted or struck by lightning. 🌀 The Earth 🌏 has always been our home, but there has been disconnection for a long time. Earthing/grounding is now becoming a “thing”… The idea is, contact …

Creating Space for Flow

Creating space…. This is a recurring theme in my life and usually comes up for me when I’m going through transitions, expansion and shifts. Right now it is a major theme in a few areas. With work/play, I’ve realised that I’m doing too many things and feel the desire to shift my focus on where I can best be of service. I will be taking time away from the podcast for a little while to reassess where I’m heading with it. I feel that this will create space to put more energy into women’s circles, yoga, workshop and other event …

Ancient Wisdom: Remembering and Knowing

Ancient wisdom. Traditional wisdom. Ancestral wisdom. Ancient knowing. Ancient remembering. It all makes so much sense to me now. Previously these were intellectual concepts… and now, experientially, I feel it all so deeply in my heart, in my whole being. Follow me on this journey for a moment… For many years of being down the rabbit hole of nutrition and health, I developed an ancestral and rewilding view and approach to life as a human, to live as closely as possible to nature and our natural design. There has always been a flavour of the concept of traditional wisdom that …

Rebirthing Breathwork and Sound Medicine: A Powerful Healing Experience

I recently had a one-on-one rebirthing and sound healing session with the incredible Daniel Coates, aka. Suntara, and it was one of the most amazing healing experiences I’ve ever had. Here is a recap of my journey: As I began to breathe, in through the nose, out through the nose, just as a baby does… free, uninhibited, natural, rhythmic… it seemed that my breath was anything but this, and moreso a breath that signified I was in fight or flight mode, my sympathetic nervous system in activation, not fully letting my breath go on the exhale, and holding at the …

Giving and Receiving

The acts of giving and receiving have been present in my life for as long as I can remember. When I give, it is without expectation. I give because I enjoy seeing others happy, cared for and feeling good. But what about receiving?? I don’t receive as easily as I give. This is something I’m very aware of and am still learning to do graciously. I’ve realised that reciprocity is a human tendency and is also present throughout the natural world. Since we are nature, it is no surprise that we express this tendency. Giving without expectation is beautiful, but it …
