Crystal + Mineral Magic | Rachel Crethar of Rock & Co

Crystals – I’ve been drawn to them since I was little. Always picking up stones and holding  them up to the light peering around for a twinkle. My first crystal was  a Lapis Lazuli. I was 19, dawdling around Spellbox in Melbourne’s Royal Arcade. A glittering tray of gems caught my eye at the counter and I wandered over to them. Lapis Lazuli, a stone said to be in alignment with my Sagittarius star sun, caught my eye. I tucked it into…

A is for Adventure

ADVENTURE is my glittering, guiding word for sweet 2016. ADVENTURE. I love it. Really, really love it. I love that I didn’t have to ponder it. I love that she just leapt right out and excitedly declared: Adventure Awaits. It feels right. Like an overzealous puppy she literally tugs at my sleeves, c’mon c’mon! Imagine this! Oh, and this! And we should read that! Let’s go here! And let’s make one of these! Everything is energy, and the energy of…

Love & Links for a Happy Weekend.

Oh it’s been a hot, summery and stormy kind of week. A goodie, chock full of exercise on the deck, hanging out in the veggie garden and water play with B boy. Our front yard is almost complete – yay! Think 3 tiered merbau boardwalk lined with incredibly beautiful and lush palms, birds of paradise, cacti vibrantly lilting toward the sun in their pots, hidden pathways and our glowing mango front door. My husband, a super-talented industrial designer-turned landscape and construction…

A blog break & a baby!

There is a special kind of sweetness in surrender and a subtle kind of magic in each moment. Release what holds you back. Burn the bridges that bind you to limited thinking. Those who appear to have it all generally do, not because they want it any more than you, but because they leverage themselves by living in line with the dream. So walk, talk, eat and sleep like everything you wish for is everything you already have and watch the…

29 quotes to shift your mindset

If you’ve been hanging round here for a while, you know that I wholeheartedly, absolutely and unabashedly  believe that words wield power. Nestled at their core is the potency to turn friendships sour, give rise to periods of unrest, start wars, propose forevers, shower kindness, spark revolutions and influence human nature. We all crave connection. It runs through our veins and reminds us that we belong to something bigger than ourselves.  When we wander off track or get swept off course,…

Feeding Fulfilment: Eating Emotions.

You are an energetic being made of the same stuff of the stars. You are nature, personified. Each one of us is born with an infinite amount of potential. We trust our instincts long before we trust anything or anyone else. We rely on the intrinsic nature of our intuition before we develop our senses. We know what we need. We know when we need it and we demand that we get it. Simple, no? As we grow we develop relationships, branch…

Start with Heart: revolutionising goal setting.

I was going to kick this post off with a confession – ‘I didn’t set any goals or new year resolutions.’ I did think about it long and hard. Actually, I spent so long thinking about it that it become kind of a bore. It began to feel like something that is done out of expectation rather than a true pull to create something for your own greater good. Here’s the clincher; I made some pretty radical changes in 2014, I closed slammed a…
