If you’re here, you’re probably waking up right now and feeling like there’s more to life, you want more, but you’re just not sure how or even if you can ever get it.
Don’t fret no more!
You’re not alone. The majority of women and men today are living lives they’ve unconsciously created for themselves, on auto-pilot.
I believe this is what is contributing to the global mental health crisis we’re experiencing today in the Western culture. (see my book ‘Fu
('F*ck Fear: How to Get the Life You Truly Want’)
But it doesn’t have to be this way, and a part of you already knows this otherwise you wouldn’t be here searching for answers and support.
Here are 5 of the most common beliefs that are likely holding you back.
The truth is, these beliefs are no more than just ego fear (if you don’t know what...
Am I selfish for prioritising my happiness?
I get this question all the time because it’s one of the biggest fears most women have, and a belief that can sabotage you from achieving your goals without you fully realising it.
As a woman today we’re really good at putting everyone before ourselves, and our society actually encourages you to do this.
Many women worry they’ll be perceived as selfish for putting their happiness and needs before others, for example their partners, friends or children for example.
But let’s look at this a little more!
There’s two ways you can put yourself first, and the first is of course putting yourself before others at the expense of others, and the second is prioritising what makes you happy and healthy in order to give more to those around you and on a wider scale.
Because let’s be honest, if you’re not happy, can...
Free Guided Meditation to help you stop procrastinating!
Do you believe that procrastination is just you, it's just the way you are, maybe you believe you're lazy because this is what you've been told, or maybe you believe it's just your personality or it's the way you're wired and there's nothing you can do about it...
Well I'm here to tell you it is the way you're wired, but there's plenty you can do about it.
Procrastination can be a real life crippler, and dream killer!
Without you realising it it can damage your confidence and cause you to give up on your dreams simply because you don't understand why you procrastinate, and even better, that you don't have to.
Like all self sabotaging behaviours, procrastination comes from the emotional part of your brain, what I also refer to as your ego. Neurologically it's called the limbic system, and guess what, we know you can absolutely change and master your mind through mastering your emotions.
In short, you can retrain your brain,...
Mindfulness is a buzz word these days!
Everyone's a teacher!
But few really understand what it truly means, and the difference between a mindfulness practice, a mindful state of mind, and meditation.
I get it it, it can be confusing enough to put you off, or halt your progress when you don't fully understand what you're trying to train your mind to achieve... or not achieve!
Believe it or not, not all meditation is equal... and not all meditation is appropriate for you right now!
There are many varying practices of meditation and they often allow you to achieve different things, one size doesn't fit all.
Engaging in the wrong type at the wrong time can put you off for life, and that's a tragedy because when practiced correctly, trained by an experienced teacher, (who engages in daily meditation themselves and has done for a long time!) meditation will change your life, and supercharge your brain to help you achieve anything you want.
Meditation in all its forms are...
Meditation saved my life!
Yes it's a bold statement, but it's also a true to my very bones statement.
As a young woman in my late teens/ very early twenties I was wild to say the least.
I was insecure and living a very toxic life.
Even though I was a mental health nurse (early in my career) and training to be a psychotherapist, I was digesting the information but not ingesting it. I was also only working from my head, putting a band aid on an infected wound and hoping it didn't come back to bite me later...
But, one day a phone call from a dear friend with a message from a psychic changed everything!
A long story short, this led to me finding Buddhism and starting a journey of inner exploration through meditation, compassion and a lot of analysis!
I stopped simply digesting the information I was reading and went to work on ingesting all the juicy nutrients coming from everything I read and studying with my Buddhist teachers.
The rest is...
A complete reboot to your system needs a holistic approach, this means incorporating mind, body and spirit.
There are 5 quick and easy practices you can incorporate in to your life starting right now to improve your mood, energy and shift those pesky summer pounds if needed.
They're so simple, there's no excuses!
Self care is widely promoted right now and honestly I think it sucks.
Self care is just a way of putting a band aid over an infected wound and hoping it will heal... It's a temporary fix.
However, self-compassion improves feelings of stress, and has proven excellent outcomes for improving mental health issues.
In short, self-compassion brings lasting inner peace, tune in to find out why.
'Do you struggle with building a consistent daily spiritual practice?
As some of you know, (because you were with me, thank you! I had a blast xx)
I held a live event over the weekend in Glastonbury, and it was amazing! There were tears, hugs, laughter and awesome music!
We had a blast and the feedback has been incredible! (for that I can't express my gratitude enough)
But one of the questions I got asked, (thank you Laura for asking and sharing your truth) is how do you make yourself do the practice in the first place?
In short, how do you stay consistent?
If the best time to practice is in the morning, how do you make yourself get out of bed?
Because if your house, life and family are like mine, as soon as the day get's going it's very difficult to pause in the middle to practice meditation or whatever spiritual practice you have.... it's difficult, but it's not impossible by the way. (That's another post for another day for sure)
To get a head start I always...
