A Birthday Wish

day00-intro-2

It’s no secret that I love to travel. But whilst I jump for joy at the short visits to exotic destinations that take my breath away, what I love more so is immersing myself in a different culture, questioning, wondering and exploring so that I can see things from other people’s perspectives. So that I can fully appreciate the sounds, the tastes, the smells, the feelings, the culture of that country. Wondering why certain cultural norms exist. Wondering what these people love to cook, eat, do, feel, love and think about. My desire to learn, grow and become more flexible is unquenchable.

And so begins my love affair with Spain. Continue reading

How to Create Happy, Healthy, and Intimate Relationships

2014-05-01 19.00.32
Whilst I’m certainly far from perfect, and can’t claim to be an expert on relationships, I’ve had my fair share of them and talked to enough people to reach my own point-of-view about what it takes to maintain a healthy and happy relationship.

It has always baffled me, however, the number of relationships that I see that are abusive, disrespectful and disempowering. It seems that more often than not, people would prefer to stay in a not-so-good relationship, than be single, and choose again.

There is no cookie cutter mould for the ‘perfect’ relationship, as we’re all different, and each and every one of us has different ideas about what the ‘deal’ is when it comes to a relationship. Our expectations, understandings, and the type of ‘arrangement’ that we’d like to make with that other person we choose to be with is very individual. However there are common elements that when put in to practice, can truly invite and create happy relationships, irrespective of what the ‘deal’ is.  Continue reading

Happy New Year

byron

Whilst down at the beach this morning with my adorable husband … the sun kissing my back, swimming in the surf, and breathing in the beauty of Byron Bay beach and surrounding hinterland, I am completely filled with gratitude.

I believe that heaven really is here on earth if we wish to choose to create it. Every day that I make the intention to be present as I walk on the beach observing the clouds, the mountains, the seagulls, the ocean and the way the waves crash upon the sand; or when I look out our living room window at the birds, butterflies, flowers, plants and dragons all doing their thing in the garden, I am simply in awe at just how beautiful this planet is. It washes away all my worries and concerns about the news ‘stories’ that are designed to fuel our fear. And every time I breathe in the beauty of nature, I am gifted with even more unexpected surprises, whether it be a pod of dolphins swimming by, or a coloured flower that I hadn’t seen before, or a cloud formation that all fill me with happiness, joy and beauty.

Creating my life exactly how I like it is something that I absolutely love to play with. Continue reading

Give the Gift of Allowance

christmasPlease excuse my lack of postings over the past few weeks. There is a good reason for it though. I promise :) I’ve been dedicating my time to reading the thousands (yes, you read it correctly) the thousands of pages of Reference Material notes, so that I could become a Certified Facilitator in Access Consciousness®. You most likely would have heard of Access before, as I’ve been using the tools in my daily life for the past 7+ years, and mentioning a few of them in various Be genki blog posts. Anyway, it’s time to pop the champagne as next year I’ll be offering all sorts of wonderful Access Consciousness courses to share the tools and one of the ‘hands-on’ body processes (Access Bars®) with you. Exciting huh!

But for the now, with Christmas only a couple of weeks away, I have been hearing all sorts of stories about how this time of year can be stressful, traumatic and worrisome for most people. Most of the stories revolve around putting on a ‘happy face’ for the holidays even though throughout the rest of the year there is backstabbing, bitching and unkindness between family members.

What if it didn’t have to be this way? Continue reading

What I Learnt about Back Pain

BackI recently hurt my back. Really badly. Well, technically it wasn’t just my back. It was also a muscle in my groin that went “pop” whilst stretching a little too much at the gym. Which then led to a whole fiasco with the psoas muscle and sciatica which resulted in spasms not only down my leg, but also up my back which placed pressure on my diaphragm which resulted in breathing not as optimally as I would like whenever I was sitting down. Not much fun, hey.

Question Everything

“Everybody realises the issues. Nobody actually acts. There is no time to be silent. There is no time to excuse. The time is now. Let’s start. The future is in our hands. And to make it better we must first change ourselves. Shed all the hatred, all the envy, all of the sadness. Be kind. Smile. and forgive. Continue reading
