New Zealand Leading the Way

Last week our country experienced a shock wave which rippled around the world. A horror story which has been transformed by the approach of our leaders, the people affected, and those seeking an inclusive world based on Love, kindness and empathy.

For over 3 decades I have sat in circles with people suggesting New Zealand would play a key role in the consciousness shift needed for this time of social transformation. Light is emerging through dark times.

The Christchurch earthquakes and responses to recent events have awakened people to the recognition that at Heart we are one. What we can see happening in Christchurch is love in action - it’s instinctive.

With a little more education and expanded awareness we can all help spread healing conversations.

If not now, when ?

If not you, who ?

It’s two years ago today since I nearly killed myself (accidentally) and Im super grateful to be walking and ALIVE ! It’s been a testing two years and I’ve been asking the really tough questions “What am I doing with my life ? “ If I was diagnosed with a life threatening illness tomorrow would I be doing what I’m doing now ? the answer happily is … YES !

WE all have a destiny and I feel strongly called to stand up and share what I know about mental well-being. The Roots course has now had many outings with groups from the general public, Yogis and various health care professionals. To my delight everyone responds …it’s so simple ! The mental distress affecting millions of people worldwide, suggest we need a thinking upgrade and this is our contribution to that conversation. Come back to basics people ! Most of us can still help our own… don’t be scared … get educated !

I invite YOU to join us and share this healing conversation … some things happening in our world are a bit nutty now and yet the solutions are simple … help us help many !

Just scanning through my site and forgot all about blog ! Personally and professionally the last 12 months has been focussing on Nourishing Roots both my own deep energy, and the online teaching series designed as a prescription for well-being. Being literally stripped to the bone helped me to explore the power of these teachings firsthand !

Nourishing our roots and staying grounded through this time of rapid social, political, technological and geological upheaval is essential. We are in a collective threshold of change which is touching all levels ... stirring the depths. We are all being threshed ... time to separate the rubbish from what's real ! Years ago people would go through a radical change in their lives, while others around them were relatively stable and able to offer support. TODAY many people are being rattled ... the random chaos in our global village is touching us all.

What I know from years of practice is that most people don't have language for their own depths but they do have strong feelings. To me the generalised anxiety in the world today, at a deeper level is really a quest for a meaning ... what's really going on here ? When we see the outer world is disarray it challenges us to assess our inner worlds. As I see it one gift from this time is for us to recognise that no external authority is going to manage our world ... ultimately it's up to us ! We choose and co-create our reality and at any time we can turn our lives around. 

For me the call is to offer some maps for looking at who we are , where are in our journeys and HOW to consciously steer ourselves in our lives. The You being You creations are all about that offering teachings, practices and tools for self empowerment and prescriptions for well-being.

Whats your call ? what are the things you dream about ? long for ? What are you always talking about/thinking about ? It doesn't matter if the HOW of what you are being called to doesn't make sense ... all you need is to take one tiny step towards your deepest yearnings and the way will gradually open up. Try it and see :)

January 30, 2017. I went to local beach for a body surf, seeing the waves were HUGE and dumping on the shore, I realised best I don't go out.  Couldn't resist a tiny short splash ... just to get wet and refresh myself !

A MOMENT OF MADNESS ... looked behind me ... powerful wave surging to meet me ... paddled hard to catch it ... up on the wave ... soaring for a second ... promptly upended ... hammer head dive onto the sandbank ... CRUNCH, CRUNCH, CRUNCH !!! next thing ... slapping around like a fish on the shoreline ... OW OW OW !!!

Staggered up the beach ...  gasping on the shore ... found by a psychiatrist !!! Interesting conversations while waiting for helicopter ride to local hospital ... X-rays - fractured Neck, Spine, sternum ... week in hospital ... 3 months mostly resting and breathing at home ...

A time to ponder ...What do I need to do before I die? ... Managing Madness ... a beginning step :)


Following your dreams

When we have recurring dreams - (daydreams or night dreams) - it is always a sign our spirit is reaching for us. For many years I've been feeling a call to encourage a global healing conversation about how to be whole. It has seemed at times like this was a bit nuts ! A task that was just too big. Now it seems like it is happening naturally. As I completed the filming of the next 2 online courses - our group suddenly expanded to include a new teacher Bali based. Now the global healing conversation is expanding- spirit is helping - that is for sure ! 

To follow your dream take Step One : Listen to the Call

What are you being asked to do ? What is clear ? What is clearly NO ?

Identify these things and take the next smallest step e.g. have a conversation, write a list, pay attention to where life is saying STOP and where it's GO. Be willing to surrender to something larger than yourself...there is a plan and you are in it !
