Nourish |Appreciative, connective & intimate relationships

February invites in the culture of love; the topic of being a little more connective and melting into the essence of tenderness. Finding consciousness is the foundation to being that little bit more aware of being connective. How often do we project our wants upon others? Learning to be more connective To be heart centred is to be in alignment with the touching of the self, at this point you receive the match of coming together in relationships. Feeling into others, to see and to listen with deep alignment. Where the other person is you. Gratitude & acknowledgement Appreciate and acknowledge love in action, look for it and learn to soften to anothers heart and gesture. Invite in this gratitude and acknowledgement into your relationship space. Giving up the right to be right In the western world we are constantly evaluated and trained there is value in being right, but to what purpose? It is important to listen and observe, to retire the right to be right. To provide spaces of ‘listening scapes’ where learning …

Through the eye of the wholehearted

Wholehearted folk have an inspiring way of seeing the world. Perhaps it is because they understand how to live with vulnerability, it is what they see and touch. A treasure they behold! To believe they are worthy of deep love and connection. Living with a vulnerability that isn’t controlling or predicting. What would happen if you began to move through the world as a ‘wholehearted’? What gems would you behold? 1 :: Courage To tell the story of whom you are with a wholeheart; having and owning the courage to be imperfect. 2 :: Compassion To be kind to the self above all and upon first account; thus allowing this treasure to be extended to others. 3 :: Connection As a result of authenticity; not being whom you think you ought to be. 4 :: Vulnerability Knowing that what makes you vulnerable is in-fact what makes you beautiful. Knowing that it is necessary to invest within things that may or may not work out. An essential part of the wholeheartedness toolkit is infact vulnerability. Vulnerability is …

The graceful moments of taking notice

Weekly Photo reflection Post: Graceful Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. We all tend to go through rough patches in life, yet regardless of what is going on in our psychological environment, mother earth can help us to attune to our external environment to a higher more positive frequency. The pretty agility and grace of our surroundings allow us to poise in that moment and appreciate the power of now. There is always a stillness and peace to be found, spaces where you can gain clarity, inspiration and confidence in the day. The new economics foundation  commissioned by the UK Government’s Foresight project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing developed a set of evidence-based actions to improve personal wellbeing. In this report, NEF presented  the evidence and rationale between five well-being actions, drawing on a wealth of psychological and economic literature. Where ‘taking notice’ was recognised as one of the five priorities. Studies have shown that being aware of …

Simplify

THE FORMULA FOR SIMPLE LIVING Live beneath your means Return everything you borrow Stop blaming other people Admit it when you make a mistake Give clothes not worn to charity Do something nice and try not to get caught Listen more, talk less Every day take a 30 min walk Strive for excellence, not perfection Be on time, don’t make excuses Don’t argue, get organised Be kind to unkind people Let someone cut ahead of you in line Take time to be alone Cultivate good manners Be humble Realise and accept that life is not fair Know when to keep your mouth shut Go an entire day without criticising anyone Learn from the past, plan for the future Live in the present Don’t sweat the small stuff Its all small stuff. ~Source : Unknown~

The Wisdom of the Waistline – make it a part of your life

Arms curled around our waist; there is no better place to be in receipt of the acknowledgement of the beautiful feminine. The centre to connection and perception to our external feminine. Taking compassion and warmth to a deep happy foundation and affection for this beautiful space as it is TODAY is the goal of our journey. For some the path of acceptance can be long. Come in time you can pick up its beauty, surrendering to its skin, stories and its special space. It may not even physically change. You may have chosen to put it in the order of dis-ownership, giving it little space for love and total rejection. Its time to revisit the love affair and rekindle a deep friendship. A relationship of thought to showing up for this physical space is where my whole fitness practice lies. Learning an interaction to treasure our pelvis, extending to the wonders of the buxom waist, a magnet of gold. Walking today with acceptance of its wonder. To think of its past, to acknowledge its work. To find …
