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…

Feeding Fulfilment: The Mind-Body Connection Part 1

This was the second Nu-Lax wrapper I’d found desperately shoved into the side of the pantry like the chocolate wrappers and empty chip packets crammed into the door of her car and handbag. That handbag was literally bursting at the seams, a poignant metaphor for the way she treated her body and lugged it around. Overstuffed. Overtired. Overwhelmed. A telltale sign of truth bubbling below the surface ready to erupt. A secret fear of being unloved and alone saw her tighten her…

A guide to dissolving doubt – FREE RESOURCE

It’s a thing of beauty when your words reach the covered up, hidden away spaces in others. It’s a thing of heart-swelling proportions when your words give rise to shrieks of “me too”, creating a virtual circle where we allow our vulnerabilities to take the stage. It’s a thing of honour, guiding others to add their doubts and fears to the proverbial fire. My post on Dissolving Doubt last week resonated with so many of you, both here on the blog and on social media. The feedback I got…

Thank You. Universal Letter Writing Week.

  WRITE. One of my favourite words. It’s scrawled on a yellow neon post-it and stuck to my MAC. Right in front of me. A little heart sketched underneath to remind me, this is what I love. This is what I love. The simplicity of a singular word loosens all my mental shackles and coaxes out the wild, rambunctious, uncensored side of my creativity. The simplicity of a singular word loosens all my mental shackles and coaxes out the wild,……

Gratitude, writing + the beauty of believing.

    This morning while scrolling through my inbox, and unsubscribing from a multitude of newsletters, I came across a sweet little presentation on the performance of my blog posts in 2014. (Thank you WordPress!). While watching I felt a surge of satisfaction and a peak in gratitude for all of you who have been here, reading, commenting, cheering, sharing and sending little words of encouragement and love my way via email and social media. I will admit that I had…

Social media and the rise of body-shaming

Earlier this week, this particular news article kept popping up in my newsfeed. After reading it I decided I’d share it with my Facebook tribe. The next morning I awoke to a particularly heated private message from a woman, who isn’t a follower or a friend for that matter, disgraced at what I’d shared. The week before, I posted the image below to accompany a social media post. This girl’s picture was virtually ripped to shreds by women poking fun at…

50 reasons to go LOCO for COCONUT OIL!

My first encounter with this Queen of fruits was on a trip to Dunk Island in my early 20’s. These jumbo young coconuts would fall from the palm trees outside our room and we’d decided to crack them open using the corner of our bathroom bench top + a lot of elbow grease. #coconutfail I now leave the CRACKING OF THE COCONUTS to my husband, who is much safer with a large knife than I am. Coconut oil basks in the…

Blogs I Love

Holy whoa! Flourishing Wellness has been awarded the Leibster Award (4 times!). I’m honestly steeping in gratitude over here behind the screen. This blog baby has been a tiny mad spark of an idea for such a long time and I’ve only just been brave enough to start publishing in July. To be recognised at all means the absolute universe to me, and this is probably the most opportune time to say to you from the depths of my big…
