If you’re new to meditation, or if you're simply looking for ways to enhance your practice, I'd urge you to consider incorporating essential oils.
Essential oils are volatile compounds which are basically the “essence” of a plant’s fragrance.
They’ve been used medicinally throughout history, from simple treatments like skin issues to more complicated diseases.
Today their use in modern medicine is having a resurgence, as they are either being used as a complementary medical treatment or as an alternative medicine choice, especially for your every day ailments or to simply support your health in a 'prevention rather than cure' way.
What we also know for sure, is they are incredible for your mental health and wellbeing and this makes them a fabulous addition to your meditation practice.

A restful night sleep is vital for your good health and wellbeing.
But I can't tell you the amount of clients I have to have chronic sleep disturbance, and this impacts massively on their mental and physical health, as well as other areas in their lives like career and relationships.
If you're struggling to sleep, here's 3 Yoga breathing practices that will certainly help you.
First, let's check in...Take a moment now, pause and bring your attention to feeling your breath.
How does it feel? Is there tension in your chest? Is your breath short and shallow, with your breath feeling as though it stops in your chest?
Truth is most people live in a state of chronic hyper arousal... Often locked in your fight or flight stress response. If you have tightness around your neck, shoulders and chest, and your breathing feels tight and short, simply put, you're not breathing correctly, and this pattern is following you at night when you lay your head down to sleep.

In this episode it's all about understanding your shadow, your ego and your True Self.
In order to heal yourself you must know yourself... and this isn't just limited to understanding your core beliefs and watching your thoughts.
True self awareness, and consciousness is being courageous enough to see and own your shadow...
So, what's your shadow?
Well if your ego is the fear based part of your personality, your shadow is everything your ego fears.
It's your deepest shame, guilt, hated and inner torment, and left unseen it projects unconsciously from you in to your world.
Jung the famous psychologist said we must integrate our shadow to reach self actualisation.
In Buddhism and Christ Consciousness spiritual practices, this is to reach full conscious awareness and acceptance of your whole self... warts and all.
Ignored, the shadow manifests in to self sabotaging...
So as most of you know, I’ve been prepping for the biggest launch of my business for months now and running up to Christmas it was intense and right now I’m in post launch strategy mode.
And already I’ve had a huge lesson and growth spurt about understanding my ego and self some more.
So far it’s been filled with some intense up’s and downs and I’ve had moments of just wanting to quietly give up, but then I remember if I do, I’ll be giving in to my ego fear…
One of my biggest ego triggers is feeling like I’m failing because that’s what’s really tied in to a very toxic core belief I have, that I’m not good enough, I’m just not smart enough, and so I just have a hissy fit, cry a lot and give up, or I retreat, and make excuses like I just don’t have the time with having to take care of my kids and have a job, or it’s so unfair because that person has everyone on her side.
All the excuses you...
The end of the year is always a fantastic time for reflection, and this year we're ending a whole decade!
If you don't know where you've been, you can't plan for where you want to go... especially if you're trapped in the past by your passed emotions...
Your emotions are like a time machine and left unchecked either keep you in the past repeating old behaviours and habitual patters, or projecting in to the future often creating a future in your mind that's based on the past...
To escape this you have to have full awareness of where you came from and how those emotions were created in the first place...
Tune in to this episode for my time line exercise and decade in review reflective practice.
Here's to making the next ten, the best ten! xx
