Meditation on lack and abundance

Saturday, September 18th, 2021

When you find yourself noticing the lack of something, remember this is also just your perception.🌱Tuning into the abundance instead shifts your perspective.🌱When we are in a place of lack we can become single-minded and focused on what we don’t have.🌱This can cause suffering and it can also affect our creativity.🌱This state is meant to […]

Synchronicity arriving from the Depths

Sunday, April 11th, 2021

The synchronicity at the moment is just blowing me out the water. It feels like I ask for something and it appears. No I don’t mean things or money, and sorry I don’t have the winning lottery numbers. But somehow, weirdly and wonderfully, new opportunities are arising and changes are happening which are just spot-on […]

Carl Rogers on People and Sunsets

Sunday, April 4th, 2021

“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if I can let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, ‘Soften the orange a little on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple along the base, and use a little more pink in the cloud color.’ I don’t […]

My Old Boots – kickstarting a growth mindset!

Thursday, April 1st, 2021

I need new walking boots. My old ones have served me so well. They did a lot of miles. I bought them a long time ago in a shop where you could try them on and have a go at walking over some simulated rocks. Buying boots was a somewhat time consuming process of trying […]

My Many Mothers Day

Saturday, March 13th, 2021

I’m thinking about Mother’s Day (tomorrow in the UK) and this is my first without my lovely Mum. My heart is breaking a little bit but it’s also full. She and I found a space in those last years where we could really understand one another. All the difficulties were let go. We saw each […]

Feeling Safe and the Experience of Trust

Saturday, February 13th, 2021

I’m thinking about trust at the moment and what informs that feeling of being safe with an individual or in a group or situation. How do I know when I am experiencing trust? What is my mind like when I feel safe? What does my body feel like? What am I noticing in the other […]

Deciding not to hate

Thursday, February 11th, 2021

Some days ‘go wrong’ real early. Sometimes I step into a trap. Sometimes I trust when my instinct tells me it’s not safe. Sometimes I am asked to share an opinion only so the asker can jump on it. Sometimes people just want someone to blame. Sometimes people pick a fight because they can’t have […]

Ruminating about Rumination

Wednesday, February 10th, 2021

What’s the difference between reflecting on past events and ruminating? I don’t know how many mindfulness teachers and supervisors I have asked about this and not yet had a useful answer. Today this feels a little frustrating. I understand rumination is unhealthy but I am often asked to reflect. Sometimes I am told rumination is […]

Letting the growing come … even in the darkest times

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021

It may be hard right now. But trust that even in the very darkest times, change and growth is happening inside you. Just like a seed in the darkness under the earth, you are nourishing and nurturing and getting ready for something new to emerge and to flourish. Trust this. Throughout our lives, we change […]
