Are you unstoppable???

Do you feel you are star gazing and not making progress in your life, work, relationships or body? Are you comparing yourself to others instead of focusing on your daily actions, core values, dreams and goals? Life is like a train pulling all the carriages. The train engine starts slow down the track and then [...]

“Your results are an expression of your level of awareness”- Bob Proctor.

We all have values, priorities and what is important to us in life. When we do something we love, we have energy, vitality and we are engaged. When we do something low priority, we feel overwhelmed and drained, as we feel what we are doing is not important to us or has little value. How [...]

‘If no one gives you a medal… design your own.’ Billy Connolly

What story are we holding onto…. In all my 30 years plus of teaching I have encountered many stories. This is the thing we all have a story, whether it’s physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. The danger is when we hold onto that story and let it rule our lives by the decisions that we [...]
