Episode #12: A Human Kind of Christmas

Episode #12: A Human Kind of Christmas

Posted December 23, 2017

Episode #12: A Human Kind Christmas In conversation with various people (IRL and online) about Christmas there seems to a be a real mix of people and their perspectives on this time of year. There are those that just relish the celebration of it – the gift giving, carols, social time. And then there are those who find this time – especially ‘Christmas Day’ – as something they have to ‘get through’. Coping seems to be the key word! It seems some people don’t find Christmas a time of kindness or joy – or maybe this season is filled with too many ‘to-dos’ on the list and people to see (that maybe they don’t get along with) or even heartache and loss. In this episode I share: How to make Christmas more heart centered. Being conscious and impeccable with your word. Why conscious communication is imperative at Christmas. Tuning into feelings  – see the world and the people around you through your heart. My invitation to be kind, deliberate, reflective, attentive to those around you. Ways to offer up more kindness to others. Willingness to connect from the heart and seat of love. The power of ‘praying‘ for others. Putting social media on pause during Christmas.

Posted December 12, 2017

Episode #10: The 5 ‘S’s of a Soulfully Centred Mama In the early week’s and months of life with my little babe back in 2015 I found myself frequently writing notes, musings, diary entries and thoughts into my evernote. One of these notes was my take on motherhood – particularly the 5 key attitudes and ways of being and navigating through motherhood. The 5 S’s of a Soulfully Centred Mama soon became my personal ethos, mantras and guidance system. having recently read through this note I felt it important to share this with all of you beautiful mamas out there – papas too and even those without children. This is really supportive for everyone! In this episode I share: The background story of The 5 S’s How this can be applied to all – mamas/papas but also anyone seeking a conscious, soulful life What the 5 S’s are in summary and in detail The essence of the 5 S’s Surrender and how powerful it can be How sacrifice can be reframed into a positive choice The importance of self-love Embracing the simplicity of motherhood The deliciousness of diving into the sweetness of motherhood Listen to the episode: Subscribe on iTunes Click here to subscribe on iTunes and never miss an episode! +++ Show notes: Check out The Happiest Baby for Dr Karp’s 5 S’s for Soothing Babies.

Episode #9: An integrated journey to health and happiness with Dr Kate Wood

Episode #9: An integrated journey to health and happiness with Dr Kate Wood

Posted December 05, 2017

Episode #9: An integrated journey to health and happiness with Dr Kate Wood Sometimes the universe creates these chance meetings that are so beautifully orchestrated it actually blows my mind. One such chance meeting was the day I met Dr Kate Wood. It was down at Coogee Beach, at the children’s rock pool. Naturally, as us mamas do, I noticed her little boy, Maxi first. He was in a bright orange wet suit (it was still early spring and Sydney waters are cold then!) and he was being ridiculously adorable crawling and splashing through the shallow waters. It didn’t take long for me to notice his mama, Kate. Also in a bright orange swim suit. Her face bright, her eyes sparkling with such joy and infectious love. Healthy, glowing, fit. We started chatting and instantly I knew I had struck gold. This woman, humble yet bubbly, was clearly very smart, switched on, health conscious and connected (by connected, I mean spiritually!) Before long Kate, myself and another beautiful mama had formed our own little Mama Tribe. All so different yet like-minded and with aligned values. I fell madly in love with this woman who would continue to reveal herself to me as one of the most gifted, compassionate, loving, intelligent and dedicated women I’ve ever known. Kate – A doctor, chiropractor, kinesiologist, doula, author, co-owner of the well known Health Space Clinics  (15 of them!) and mama of two – is a remarkable a woman, but she will never make you feel inadequate because this woman is real, authentic, conscious, soulful. Mix all that up with a deep innate desire to serve and support others and you have a woman I feel blessed to know. I want you to know her too, and her journey – there are many stories I know Kate can share but today we are going to dive into her Integrated Journey back to Health and Happiness after suffering from Lyme Disease. Kate doesn’t do anything by halves, seriously, and yet she is not an advocate for ‘super mum/woman’, pushing all the time and living in stress. She knows too well what all that can to our mind-body-soul. Kate inspires the pants off me. She, without even attempting to, drives me to be a more conscious human being, a present and patient mama, a positive and bright light in the world and one that is lives in and spreads wellness. In this episode we cover: What’s one way you can free your mind, fuel your body and feel your soul? Kate shares her personal health journey – because it’s a good one! We shine the light on Lyme disease How Kate healed herself. The natural modalities and integrated approach Kate uses for herself, How Kate stays fit, healthy and aligned. The best changes to make to heal and live in health holistically How to apply this to your children Creating your own natural modality tool-kit The power changing your mindset, beliefs and thoughts for your health Kate’s biggest wish when it comes to the way we live, move, eat, heal?

Episode #8: The A to Your Q with Claire Obeid. How to round off the year and prepare for the new one. I received this question (quite a few times) from readers and followers “I’d love to learn how you round off the year and prepare for the year ahead” Such a good question! I’m such a fan of reviewing, reflecting and learning from what was and using that as a sounding board to leap forward into the next stage/season/time. In this episode I share how I personally do this – the actual process that I do to reflect on one year before setting intentions and goals for the next. In this episode I share: The step-by-step process I use to review the year Why it’s so important to not get weighed down by too much structure and goal-setting How you can learn from what has happened and get clarity on what you want Why we shouldn’t hang out in what didn’t happen or what we didn’t like/love My favourite way to set intentions and dreams for the year ahead Creating your own intentions and affirmations The power of structure once you’re clear on your feelings and intentions Listen to the episode: Subscribe on iTunes Click here to subscribe on iTunes and never miss an episode! +++ Show notes: I mention my ebook: INSPIRED – A DIY Retreat Guide to Distil Your Dreams + Clarify Your Visions.

Episode #6: Embracing Unhappiness: how to drop the addiction to happiness and be with what is

Episode #6: Embracing Unhappiness: how to drop the addiction to happiness and be with what is

Posted November 22, 2017

Episode #6: How to embrace unhappiness I’ve struggled with the times of my life when it hasn’t been easy or happiness is elusive. This happens for me a lot. I’m pulled in and out of a huge variety of emotions, but the truth is it’s all perfect and beautiful, just as it is. This very moment is the perfect teacher. There is nowhere else you are meant to be but here and now. Which is such a painful thought for many who are going through deep suffering. And I understand that. But this, actually, is what the spiritual journey is about. Not so much “suffering” or “unhappiness” but this moment – and the experiences you are having in the here and now. Moving away from perpetual happiness and joy and actually allowing yourself to be fully with the experience you are IN. Stepping into unknown territory, continually moving forward. As Pema Chodron says “the most important aspect of being on the spiritual path may be to just keep moving.” It’s not about the destination of happiness. It’s not about omitting that which is causing unhappiness. It’s simply about BEING in the experience that you, as a soul, asked for by coming into the physical manifestation of Source – meaning becoming a human being.   +++ Here are the two quotes that I share during episode #6 from Pema Chodron’s book; ‘When things fall apart’ Heart ache is not something we choose to invite in. It’s restless and pregnant and hot with the desire to escape and find something or someone to keep us company. When we can rest in the middle, we begin to have a non-threatening relationship with it. It completely turns our usual fearful patterns upside down. When suffering arises in our lives, we can recognise it as suffering. When we get what we don’t want, when we don’t get what we do want, when we become ill, when were getting old, when were dying – when we see any of these things in our loves, we can recognise suffering as suffering. Then we can be curious, notice and be mindful of our reactions to that. Listen to episode 6: Show notes: These are some incredible books that I are feel are supportive during times when happiness is not your modus operandus. When things fall apart – Pema Chodron Be here now – Ram Dass Living Your Yoga – Judith Lasater The Power of Now – Eckhart Tolle +++ I hope this episode has shed some light on your unhappy times and given you a new perspective and perhaps the willingness to embrace and accept the experiences we don’t love or want!
