February Reflection | Bringing heartiness into your life

Recognisable into our current westernised practices is that heartiness now has a 360 holistic and complimentary narrative. Taking its roots deep and branches herin from the so many avenues of the easily digestible east before us. At this time I take my foot hold introduction into the medicinal complimentary worlds of methods of Kundalini yoga and aromatherapy as a therapist having practiced, taught and studied human anatomy and physiology as a profession for so many years. Those therapies which have gifted comparatively soothing and healing affects upon physical and psychological triggers within my own space. It is my beautiful pharmacy, my home, the seeds of my garden and my narrative. The western book of life acknowledges a pressure container and upwards movement to encourage routine exercise and the culture of advocating and assimilating that we are never quite enough. From this principle disease and illness of the mind arise due to a feeling of deficiency and imbalance in our modern day pathway. What this represents is pressure, not health. The earliest written records and scripts …

Anger | The heart is a furnace

“When the inverted anger becomes part of the body, the simple effect is that you have absolutely no relationship with your Self… Inferiority complex or superiority complex are a cover-up of inner anger. Manipulation and lying are parts of inner anger. Not being self-sustaining or having a foundation to work it out is an inner anger. Misbehavior, wrong calculation, self-destruction, destroying the business, destroying the relationship are all inner anger… On the other hand, anger comes from the place of the Agaan Granthi. It is the area of the heart, it is the blood, it is the circulation, it is the diaphragm, it is the heart pumping. The whole life depends on it. So in the center of the heart is a furnace. Either it can cook for you or it can burn down your house and there is nothing in between. That is the tragedy of it.” -Yogi Bhajan

Geranium | The Oil of Love & Trust

For those focusing a practice of opening the heart centre through a kriya (set of prescribed exercises). Geranium is a gentle oil that can be applied over the heart with a few drops of carrier oil (almond, fractionated coconut, jojoba, among others). It is nurturing and instills feelings of unconditional love. Geranium is helpful in healing emotional wounds and the heart. Equally to diffuse the oil will immediately soften a space and invite feelings of love, warmth and coziness.    

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 …

Validate our Women

The Swarm of International womens’ day is nearly upon us where women must be celebrated for their ‘capacity’ to achieve. Over time it is not uncommon for a womans own self worth as a person to be undervalued and self sabotaged. The risk here is that a woman can feel inherently less more loveable and less worthwhile. Importantly, when a woman does achieve, there is cause for celebration. Yet I suggest on this day we celebrate the effort and attitude of all women with their tenacity ‘to get there’ and ‘push through’. Placing value on the ‘actual attributes’, such as effort and the strength of attitude within their tool kit within any transitional phase. One’s sense of self and place in the world must be one that no longer involves unique and idiosyncratic conditions. Simple, no nonsense, unadorned and embellished … Women have and own pride with your power, efforts and attitude. Contributor for Guest Speaker & Fitness Lecturer for Who am I?

Mid Life Relationship

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. Many experts approach relationship challenges from the “deficiency model.” In this model, they identify what isn’t working, and work to fix those problems. On this statement I feel perplexed at the entire pressure around relationships and that perhaps we should look to the eye of the storm before its causal breakdown. A relationship is one where both people feel and have respect for themselves and with this have a deep bond between each other. In doing this it radiates and a natural stronger bond will flow. For me this starts with honouring my own body, creating a solid foundation and relationship with myself, from inside to out. Trusting and understanding my worth, my boundaries, my self value; a heart centred self love. This approach is about creating a solid foundation ‘for’ the relationship in me. One where both people feel a personal strength allowing a deep bond between each other. In doing this, there is …

Trust your eyes to give you the real picture

Irritation, why? The fact is we don’t trust our eyes enough to give us the real picture with what we sit within. The postcard that gives a proper picture of reality. Dogged by feelings of guilt for the need we have to make friends with our life, integrity, humility and honesty to situation. Unite not divide, a little tiny move or adjustment may encourage a reaction that brings a smiley face. It may take a little working out, discovery of a problem followed by control of self outrage. Yet you can not cut and paste the responsibility and ownership for your own personal life choices and suffering. The demise of our dear health is brought about by not chasing a calmed down one. Dire blackout phases of unplugging a connection with our inner intuition and voice, a phobia to finding courage to strike out for oneselfs’ health and wellbeing. Quite often we witness those who have a health demise initiated from a demand and importance to always be right and the winner. Yet it is …

Deep romantic Love for you

Dear breathtaking gorgeous you, It can’t be bad to find a new kind of free. Once in blissful loving of you, then alone are you fully and completely able to be free to breathe deep honest love. ‘Hurt people hurt people, the whole attract those who support and embrace a respected level of healthiness.’ It takes the brave to try, to be free, to create a brand new you. Get to know you again, feel wild, feel happy to be into a genuine me. Find yourself, grab it, attack it and run. Rein in the ego; start to change, rise or fall give it your deepest all. It will take a long time to get there, talk louder, speak up, wander further, walk taller and promote loving me. Set it on darn fire. Love is real, beautiful, brave, complex and ever melting as a dance. Be willing to shake off fear, being boundless with your loving inner friend. Enrich your path, learn lifes lessons, learn yourself. Don’t clip, grew, take your full heart open, breath and never …

Naked Vulnerability

Dear Body, Crossing a stormy sea to a sure new location. Naked in the truth of revealing all and at the utter mercy of self. A turning point, one of growth, identification and trepidation. Dipping the feminine toe into a fountain of water for the chance of a celestial diamond the other side. An adventure in the wind that gives way to waters that flow. Magical to the risk; naked to the truth. The beginning of the new world; shivers to the depths of core. I know and feel the slow feminine divine melt into an adventure that allows me to feel alive. It is an art that is given; to carry the courage from out of the shadows in quest to seek a beautiful inner glow. It is you dear body, that takes me there. That allows me there, that graces me there. I thank you again for the gift of your courage, we live together in this ever glow. It is a marriage you and I, a guest house of emotions yet forever present in …
