Do you know what you are actually looking for?

In a world of mixed up messages, where you ought, could and should be doing everythingĀ  for everyone else whilst making out you are independent, strong and happy is unsustainable. What people do so they can be socially accepted and ‘worthy’ as a human is too much, just to wake up and start the same […]

Meditate if you want to go …faster?

I have been working on a project over the last two days and it has been fascinating, researching what people actually think themselves capable of and specifically acknowledging reponsibility. As a teacher of meditation, something my students hear me say at regular intervals is ‘take action, take rest, take action, take rest’. It is important […]

New Year Presence

The New Year – a time of new beginnings, fresh ideas and the desire to change everything you don’t like about yourself by March at the latest….. then when things lose momentum, you ‘give up’ on your goals a few weeks later leaving a sense of another failed attempt. In a society where pressure is […]

Glow bright this Winter!

So here we are less than three weeks away from Christmas. The usual conversations are being overheard in casual passing, where people are placing themselves on the tinselled scale of ‘nearly there’ to ‘haven’t even started’. Now I am not a ‘Bah Humbug!’ kind of woman. Bringing family, friends and new faces together, having a […]

Grief and Guilt

This journal entry is about grief due to loss and not just through someone passing away. Grief through a loss in a relationship, a loss of a job, professional realignment, loss of purpose, when the kids leave home. Grief comes in many guises and yet is primarily associated with death. Grief has its place, it […]

When things get too big…

Feeling overwhelmed by a situation is something most people can relate to. How do I start this new project? How do I ask for a pay rise? How do I end this relationship? Big decisions…. so why do we make them ‘big’? Where is the rule book stating what counts for a big decision? A […]

Pop Quiz – Sleep

What do you class as good night’s kip? 8 hours uninterrupted? 6 hours? 4 hours? A night where you actually don’t get out of bed because your mind is in overdrive? If you wake up in the middle of the night, can you go back to sleep or do your thoughts keep you awake? Do […]

Expectation and its limitations

A recent conversation inspired me to write about expectation. How many times have found yourself in a position of disappointment or frustration because you wanted something or a situation to occur in a certain way? Practicing conversations, setting unattainable schedules, fantasised behaviour – subconsciously trying to control outcomes to make you and your life go […]

The Wonders of Autumn

Looking at all the first day of school, college photos that have been delighting me over the last week, I have been inspired to talk about Autumn and how to look after yourself in this season. Nature is on the cool down, leaves are falling, animals who hibernate are getting prepared and the crisp air […]

My Sweet Ball of Darkness

I was chatting with a student recently about depression and how crippling it can be. The conversation turned to the benefits of Vedic Meditation. Through meditation we de-excite the mind, we experience deep rest. When we are well rested, our energy levels are fuller and we have the clarity to be more aware and make […]

The Present Moment

To continually generalise experiences or use sweeping statements that something ‘one thing or another’ can be a clue that there is some boredom in the nervous system. Beauty is in every heartbeat, every breath that is the present moment. Sometimes we forget to be present as being too busy is more socially comfortable than it […]
