Can You Really Manifest Anything You Want?
Recently I took one of those little personality tests that you see on social media, I love those things, usually when I need a laugh, but this time it said it could tell me what my strengths are in my personality and what I should be doing with my life.
So, I thought feck it, let’s see.
So, I filled it out, waiting about 30 seconds and then the word power manifester popped up! Apparently, I’m a catalyst and power manifester.
Definitely makes sense, given what I do right?
Yet it made me stop and think a little…
Manifesting really has gone main stream!
Is manifesting real? I wouldn't blame you if you thought it was all woo woo nonsense!
These days it seems everyone is talking about manifesting the life of their dreams...
But what does this even mean? How the hell do you click your heels and manifest everything you ever wanted?
Well, there’s so much crap out there now in this week’s episode I'm breaking...
We Are In A Mental Health Crisis!
Stress is being blamed, but what’s the cause of you feeling ‘stressed’ ? How do you define stress?
And how does stress even impact on your mental health and quality of life?
This is what I’ve learned after 18 years in the field of mental health and emotional well-being...
Stress isn’t the only cause of poor mental health and well-being.
In fact it’s not the root cause at all!
When you experience more challenges than you have the resources to manage, stress builds and your mental health and well-being takes a dive.
We know know this already, agreed?
However what you and most people aren’t aware of is, your mental health is also affected by a lack of challenge or purpose in your life, for example if you’re feeling like you’re just stagnating drifting through your day to day life, not really sure about why you’re here or what life is really all about...What your purpose is.
Too many of us...
A few years ago, I had a dream to expand my business, leave my career in mental health services behind.
I felt suffocated because I wasn't communicating my truth, or helping people the way I knew that I was born here to do.
I also had had children recently in the previous few years and I wanted to give them more of me, and a better example of how to truly make the most of your life and not be afraid.
All these things combined, I started feeling restless, like there was more, I had to do something drastic, I had to leave my well paid, very stable career with a pension and benefits for a dream and what I felt was a calling.
I was terrified of what Andy would say...
But you'll hear me say this time and time again, if you're not living your purpose, you start experiencing symptoms of exhaustion, burnout, numbness, depression anxiety, the list goes on.
Your life will feel like a chore, and it's not meant too.
You don't have a choice, you came here to do...
Today’s podcast episode is the excerpt from my book ‘F*ck Fear:How to Get the Life You Truly Want’ and it has been an honour and privilege to read some of it for you. It really is a dream come true and I truly hope you like it and it resonates! ‘Before we dive into this book, it’s important I share with you some terminology I use to represent what I’m teaching so you don’t get caught up with words and names and block your ability to understand what I’m trying to teach you. As a student of a Course in Miracles, a yoga teacher and a sister to The Way of the Rose, which is a path of intuition, meditation and dedication to embodying Divine Love, I use the word God to describe an energy which surrounds us, is within us, gives us life and unifies us all. This energy is known as Prana in Yoga/Hinduism, Chi in China, Ki in Japan, and in the Native American tradition it is The Great Spirit. To reference a Biblical term, ‘It is that which...
I've been married for about 7 years now, and I’m happy, but let's be honest marriage and relationships are tough!
Choosing to live with another person everyday, day in, day out is one of the hardest things I have ever done, that and becoming a mum.
Actually they’re the two hardest things I have ever done and they kind of sit next to each other and overlap don’t they!
'Sometimes I wonder if raising my boys and being single would be easier', because I've constantly got my husbands opinions to take into consideration, he's an individual person he has thoughts and opinions, and quite right to.
But knowing this and fully appreciating it doesn’t always help when we differ in our opinions.
Often through the busyness of family life through the projections of our own ego minds our, own fears, our own sense of internal suffering and our own baggage that we both bring to the relationship, communication can often go down the toilet.
So how do you improve...
Life sometimes throws us curve balls and challenges doesn’t it? None of us get away scott free, but some of us seem to manage those curve balls and challenges better. For some it’s like water off a duck's back!
I was reminded of this recently because I had some issues with my book publication. It was released by mistake without any pre-launch or promotion that I had planned. Now for those who aren’t in to marketing or business, this really is a disaster! Especially as I had put so much of my heart and soul for two years in to writing this book and then preparing for its release only for it to silently be released without me even knowing!
I was gutted, and with so many other things going on I started to really feel like I was cracking under the pressure of how I was going to salvage the mess. I started to think and feel that I just couldn’t do it all, I just couldn’t cope with this situation!
So I practiced what I preach and...
Did you know you are your biggest Saboteur?
Yes, sadly it’s true, but guess what, you can choose not to be!
Here are three simple yet powerful strategies that can rapidly change your life by helping you see the thoughts that cause you to sabotage, and empower you to change them.
Get to know your ego thoughts by beginning to watch your thoughts, this is so important because when you're caught up in your thinking it's virtually impossible to recognise what's fact and what's fiction.
It's impossible to see through the lies that you often tell yourself, so you must learn to recognise your ego, to be a witness to your ego thoughts and understand the loop they can keep you in.
This is the loop of thoughts, feelings/ emotions, behaviours and reactions I talked about in the first Podcast episode.

So if you're reading this you may be struggling right now with some form of self sabotage or inner feeling of unsettlement. You could be struggling with anxiety issues or low mood, depression, anger irritability lack of confidence, you know a real sense of insecurity which stops you from showing up in the world the way you want to.
Well, let me introduce you to your ego mind. Your ego mind is a part of you that’s been forming since you were born, it's all the fears and insecurities that have collected together to form a self protection mechanism within your own mind.
It's the part of you which is distracted, it's the part of you which is disconnected, it's that little voice inside your own mind which criticizes you and tells you you can't when you can. It tells you, you shouldn't when you should, it tells you you're not good enough, that you'll never be good enough, that you'll never be thin enough, you'll never be pretty enough, or you'll never be smart enough....
