Lead with the positive. The struggle doesn’t make you worthy.

Lead with the positive. The struggle doesn’t make you worthy.

Posted May 31, 2016

Struggle doesn’t make you worthy. Before you jump on me, no, I’m not saying that if you are going through a tough time that you are unworthy. I’m saying something completely different. I’m highlighting that we, as a collective, glorify the negative, the struggle, the hard times instead of choosing to lead with the positive. Let me be SUPER CLEAR HERE – if you are going through a really challenging time (the spectrum for ‘challenging’ is so wide) please know that I am 100% for taking a good hard look at the shadows… feeling all the feels from the pain to the anger and beyond. We cannot honour this human existence without being authentic and real with where we are at. But this post is not about embracing the shadows. It’s about learning to not get entangled in them and making the detrimental choice to, day after day, lead with our struggles. Many of us ‘front up’ to life peering through the lens of the negative, me included. And I think it’s time to choose differently. ++ At the end of the day when you are chatting to your partner (or your bestie or your mum) about your day what is your ‘default’ summary of the day that was? How do you package up your day? What attitude threads through your review of how the day unfolded? Does it go a little something like this: “Oh god, I’m so tired. Today was hectic.” or maybe… “Yeah, I’m ok. So glad today is over. I can’t believe how many things went wrong” or if you’re a full time mama/papa maybe this sounds more familiar… “I’m done. Today was a complete mess. Bub threw more than my fair share of tantrums, wouldn’t eat lunch and flat out refused to sleep…” ++ So this is my recent pondering – Why do we always run a highlight reel of everything that went wrong? Why do we always lead first with the struggle? This is something I noticed myself doing a few months back and it’s been a slow, steady road towards changing that, since then. So, hear me out here while I flesh this out… I absolutely do not think it’s worthwhile to avoid and disregard those moments of sheer frustration and irritating challenges that we face, daily. Sometimes it feels good to share it, get it off our chest and be done with it. It feels good to get it all out. But that’s exactly the point – being ‘DONE with it’ should happen not far after the moment. Yet we file them away and take a ‘count’ of all the struggle moments we’ve had as if it’s a honourable badge of self worth and effort. Almost as if it’s a measure of how hard we worked that day and therefore how valuable we are. On a sub conscious level, many of us are running this program, this belief that struggle equates to value. The more challenging and crazy busy the day the more kudos and brownie points we receive. We did good, we fought the good fight. The tougher I did it, the more worthy I am.  I’ve often found myself feeling guilty for the good times. I’ve noticed that sometimes, when I go to tell my husband that the day I just had was amazing, exciting, inspiring. Or just simply, nice. Why do I feel guilty? Aren’t we all out for a slice of happiness? Don’t we deserve that and also want that happiness for our loved ones? Or, even worse still, something else I’ve noticed is that the tougher the day the more sorry we can feel for ourselves… and the more we then believe someone else should fill us up with love. We want to be recognised for how hard we’ve worked and how we’ve struggled. This recognition, temporarily makes us feel good enough… ++ What I’ve come to learn is this; It doesn’t make you a better person (or better at being a mum, at your job etc) to be fighting and struggling all day, it doesn’t make you a bad person either. Your worth is not measured in how hard you are doing it. It won’t make you feel any better to be perpetually focused on the negatives. It might feel good to get it off your chest, but it certainly will not lift you up and into the light It is no one else’s responsibility to fill in the empty gaps with thick layers of happiness and love to cover up and make up for the frustration, exhaustion or anger you are feeling. It never satisfies your soul to seek recognition, love and approval from others. This is our ego hunting for love in the external world. Yes, an admirable goal, but one that is simply just a shell of what you are truly looking for. It’s not fair to dump the worst of you on the people that deserve the best of you. Time to reframe and find a new way to be in your day: Let’s start with this truth… Your worth is based on WHO you are. Which is a beautiful soul. You are worthy simply for existing. Ok, got that? Good.. you might not believe it yet, but start to tune into this universal truth. You are worthy. Just because. Now, when it comes to going about your day and being your precious human self know this… How you choose to respond, be and behave in the light of happiness or the shadows of struggle is what really matters. It’s not about what is actually happening. The context, ultimately is irrelevant, because some things never change and some things are constantly changing… What do I mean by this? Soleil, for the moment, is always going to be teething, throwing public displays of protest (read: tantrums) and just being her toddler self. So, if that is my reality for now, my focus should be on how I respond, behave, be, act, think within this context as opposed to focusing […] Read more

Find Your Tribe

Find Your Tribe

Posted May 24, 2016

It’s time to find your tribe. Find your collective, your crew. Connection is a deep soul craving that will nourish and cradle you. This is the message my base chakra kept sending me. Granted, my base chakra needed a lot of work after pregnancy and birth and a key element to rebuilding my base chakra was to really zone in on the areas I most felt depleted in. Or where I felt ‘lack’ or weakness. Through meditation and self-reflection married with my understanding of what the base chakra represents I came to truly know what was needed to rebuild this vital, foundational energy centre. Amongst the mess of my finances, career, feeling grounding, home life and structure the stand out was finding and being part of a tribe. They say it takes a village to raise a child and I now know that to be the most on-point statement around motherhood ever. For many of us we don’t have that village vibe. You might not live close to your family. Or perhaps, like me, you do live very close but for various reasons you can’t lean on them as much as you want to. Or perhaps they don’t quite satisfy you on a soul level. Gratefully, as I worked on rebuilding my base chakra through meditation and energy work, my base started working for me. Calling in situations, circumstances, people to guide me home to my tribe. The importance of connection As I’ve shared many times before, the first 3-4 months of Soleil’s life was so challenging it truly catapulted me into a different space, time, dimension. [BTW if you want to hear more about those early months of mama hood for me, head HERE to listen to my podcast interview with Amy Taylor-Kabbaz] It was this cataclysmic, seismic shift that drew me into an isolated bubble. I wasn’t able to make it to Mother’s Group for months. My parents were away overseas for 3 months. My sisters were busy with their children and fighting virus after virus – which meant I couldn’t see them for most of last winter. One day, I had 30 minutes to myself so I headed straight down to the beach for a walk. I spotted a mother’s group and something dragged me over to them. Their babies looked the same age as Soleil. And despite the tears literally welling up in my eyes and jamming my throat I gingerly approached them. Now, if you know me well enough by now you’ll probably balk at the idea that I did anything ‘gingerly’… it’s not my style at all. I’m more the direct/opinionated/confident type (with a decent helping of introvert thrown into the mix). But, as described I was isolated, all out of whack energetically and in a really dark place. So gingerly, nervously, is how I approached these beautiful women. They saw me coming. They smiled over at me. All the while I was thinking ‘Claire, what are you doing?!’… and yet I was propelled forward, my feet moved, my voice opened and I started talking… I mumbled something about never being able to attend Mother’s Group. I quickly shared that Soleil was a very unsettled baby but I’d love to come to the next meet-up. These women looked liked they had their shit together – a big leap from where I was in that moment. And it terrified me – comparisonitis kicked in, but yet still… I kept going. Something greater than me with more knowing powered through me in that moment. They were so warm. So loving. So gracious and patient. Many months later I personally thanked one of those mamas who, particularly, had been so inviting and compassionate to me. She told me that she saw how broken I was but she was impressed that I had reached out to them. That meant a lot to me – to know that she could really ‘see’ me in that moment and chose to respond from her heart. This Mother’s Group became the beginning of a massive realisation. It was my base chakra that dragged me over to them – to give me a taste of what sisterhood felt like. To remind me that sharing experiences and connection was vital to my soul happiness.  I did my best to attend these groups weekly and the women were (are!) all incredible, loving and straight-up good eggs. But there was something missing for me, although I never placed my finger on it. Find Your Tribe It wasn’t until one late winter’s day that I took Soleil out, in the ergo baby, for a walk to a local cafe. Underneath this beautiful little oasis of trees I passed by another mama carrying her hub. We smiled at each other. And just as we were about to pass each other, her beautiful bubba and my little sunbeam reached out to each other. Those little, chubby fingers stretching out wanting to grab hold of each other. They kicked and giggled. We practically did the same. The connection was and still is real. Myself and this other mama stood there chatting in the way that only mamas do. Hurried, excited, jumping from one thing to another in an effort to learn and absorb as much of each other as possible. It’s almost like speed-dating. 3 minutes to decide (before your babies start whinging to move on) if this woman is your type of mama. I knew instantly – she intrigued me. She is so different to me yet so aligned. We exchanged numbers. And from that day on I bumped into her and saw her everywhere. We eventually found a groove and started catching up with mama/baby play dates. Not long after that in late spring down at the beach with countless babies and mamas at the kids pool I found myself talking to one particular mama. I trust my intuition implicitly and on reflection I can see again how I was sub consciously gravitating towards certain energies. This mama is into health, wellness, spirituality. She is so generous – […] Read more

Your intention holds all the power

Your intention holds all the power

Posted May 17, 2016

Let me take you back to last Saturday night. I’m in my daughter’s room, on her daybed. She’s wrapped around me in a big bear hug. She’s unwell. I found her in her cot surrounded by more vomit than seems possible for a little person. She was calm, she was safe, but she clearly wasn’t well. By this point she had thrown up another three times and I’d spent an hour laying down with her, attempting to sooth her back to sleep. But sleep just wasn’t happening. I remember lying there in the dark, Deva Premal playing in the background and I thought to myself; “How can I help her to heal. How can I ease her discomfort and guide her back to the restful sleep she clearly needs”… And a thought – which is how it always how my intuition shows up for me – landed in my mind. It said; “Claire, use your hands”. Everything clicked. Reiki. Channeling divine source energy. Shifting the blocks. Be the conduit for healing. ++ Reiki, prayer, healing. Many years ago when I was deep in my personal journey of self exploration, self healing and spirituality I studied Reiki – level 1 and 2 (amongst many other things). I received Reiki healings on a regular basis and even through my pregnancy. But, as motherhood always does, some things are pushed to the side and forgotten. Not for lack of desire or appreciation but simply because nappies, tummy time, solids and so on take centre stage. So as I held my little Koala Bear and listened to her heavy breathing I close my eyes, opened my palms to the sky and said the prayer I always say when I’m calling on the divine. I ask for our angels and guides to be in the room. I ask to be opened up and ready to receive divine healing white and golden light to cleanse and purify. I visualise my crown chakra opening and the light pouring in through the heavens and down into my energy body. I tune into the gentle vibration and hum that starts to buzz through my body and tingle through my finger tips. I call on the Divine Mother (and all mamas past, present and future) to use me as her instrument to heal Soleil. To bring her peace and to support her through this time. And finally I ask for my wisdom and my intuition to be on point and clear so I may know exactly what to do as I begin to heal her. ++ And then I begin. I hold my hands a few inches from her body and tune in, vibrationally to her energy field. I follow the vibrations, the movement of energy and I try to feel into and sense the blocks. I soon tapped into waves of energy around her belly that felt quite powerful. I didn’t know what or how to work with it, so I just did the first thing that came through, and that was to almost grasp hold of this energy and cradle it in my palms as I slowly eased it, dragged it and shifted it up, through her, over her shoulders and out of her. I worked this way for 10 minutes and I noticed her breathing soften. Her weight became heavier. Her tense little body relaxed. Sleep soon came and her illness seemed to pass. Healing with intention Now, this post is not really meant to be an advertisement for Reiki. Although, truly I do think it is something that everyone should at least experience, if not learn for themselves. However, what I really wanted to share with you was the conversation I had with my husband the next day. Chris asked me how I calmed her down, put her to sleep and essentially stopped the vomiting. Humbly, I said, it wasn’t me, but I called on Divine Source to help. I explained our little Reiki session. My husband then said, “That’s why you’re amazing babe. I can’t do that for Soleil. It’s so great that you know how to”. And as much as I’d like to receive that compliment and pat myself on the back I don’t quite see it that way. I shared with my husband that I truly believe that anyone, with the right intention and with the willingness to facilitate healing, love, support – whatever it may be that someone needs – can do what I did and can do even more. Even if my husband never learns Reiki, officially and perhaps never ‘feels’ the vibration and shifting energy like I described, if he was to set a clear intention from the heart – which is essentially calling on LOVE – to help him heal Soleil (or anyone else) I know he can do. Why? Because it’s the intention that holds the power. THE BIG WHY behind what you are doing.  When we tap into a true desire especially one that ultimately is about helping another from a purely altruistic place, that intention is loaded with high vibrational energy and love. The greatest, strongest most powerful energy we can ever harness is LOVE. ++ So the point I’m trying to share here is this. Your intention matters. It matters when you are listening to your friend share her broken heart. It matters when you are about to embark on a new adventure. It matters when you are vision boarding and manifesting your deepest desires. It matters when you don’t know how to help someone, but you have to. You are all they have in that moment. The love infused into your intention, that bursts forth from your heart, is literally the only tool you need to facilitate health, change, growth, manifestation, support. Why your why matters Let me show this to you from a different angle. In my business – both as a Life + Wellness Coach and as Mentor to my Kyani team (see this post if you want to know more about […] Read more

Mini Mindful Moments for your monkey mind

Mini Mindful Moments for your monkey mind

Posted May 07, 2016

Experiment with these Three Mini Mindful Moments Have you noticed how many thoughts you can have at any given time? Sometimes I’m blown away by my minds ability to layer thought, on top of thought. I could be thinking of Soleil, and what to make her for dinner. Simultaneously I’m considering my next client coaching session, whilst reminding myself to book my new biz launch calls into my diary. And truthfully, I’m certain there are many more layers than this. So it’s easy to see why being present and mindful is such a challenge. Our minds are powerhouses of energy, processes, thoughts. Our minds are divine and incomprehensibly talented super computers. It often feels futile to even attempt to out-smart it and find mental stillness and clarity. But we must. We must try to find that soft state of presence. We must, as often as possible – and even if it’s a fleeting millisecond moment – find a moment of peace within the mental chatter. Why? Because those pockets of peace and quiet are a direct line to our inner truth. Our higher voice resides in those gaps between our thoughts. And in there we have access to our highest potential, a well-pool of creativity (hence why, just as your falling asleep you can have some of those sparky, bright ideas!), a pathway to our intuition. Those still points in the spinning whirlpool of our minds tap us into our soul-voice.  ++ Mindfulness is at the core of many spiritually focused practise. The crux of buddhism, and a commonly shared anti-dote to the monkey mind. But how can we bring mindfulness into our everyday? Today I want to share with you 3 MINI MINDFUL MOMENTS within short increments of time where you can invite mindfulness into your life and experiment playfully in that space of stillness. Try these and comment below, letting me your experience with you. Or better still, share some of your own tried and tested ways to practice mindfulness. 5 MINI MINDFUL MOMENTS 1) 5 Minutes: Brush your teeth + wash your face At the end of the day as you stand at your wash basin ready to brush your teeth and wash your face can you make a conscious choice to clear your mind and bring FULL attention to the task at hand. Squeezing the toothpaste onto your toothbrush. Carefully and with focus brush your teeth. Focus on the sensation, the texture, the temperature. Do the same as your rinse your mouth and move onto wash your face. Whatever is part of your ‘regime’ pay as much attention to each tiny element and detail. As your mind wonders bring yourself back to the present and feel into each moment again. 3) 15 MINUTES: Eat a meal When you sit down to eat your meal choose to silence your phone and put away all electronic devises. If you can, choose to eat alone. Here, bring full attention to your meal. Before you take the first mouthful gaze upon your meal. Look at the colours. Note the shapes and textures. What do you smell? How do you feel as you prepare to eat. Then begin to eat. One mouthful at a time, fork and spoon down between each mouthful. Chew slowly. Deliberately. Notice with your FULL body the tastes, textures, aromas. Pay attention to the environment you are in. Notice your posture as you eat and how your body responds. Slow down between each mouthful. PAUSE. Eat as if there was no time. Eat as if this was your last meal. 3) 30 MINUTES: Go for a walk Again, alone if you can. Head out for a walk. No phone, no music. Just you, the fresh air, sunshine. Be in mother nature… head to a park, or to the water’s edge. Wherever you can that connects you to the divine mother. Walk slowly. Carefully. Zone your attention into what you hear first – close by and then further afield Slowly move your attention to your body. Your feet, take one step at a time. The way your arms gently swap. Breathe. Deeply. Where do you feel that breath in your body? How does the air feel as it fills your lungs? How do you feel as you walk, consciously? Notice your surroundings. Are there animals? Birds? Children playing? Try not to follow thought patterns and create stories, but notice something and move on. Note and move on. ++ Mindfulness is a powerful tool that, when practised within your daily life, will invite in a deeper sense of presence, calm and inner stillness. If you don’t always have the time to sit down and do a dedicated, seated meditation learning to invite in moments of mindfulness will transform you from being captive to your mind and inner chatter, to being empowered to choose what you wish to think and when. Your mind doesn’t have to rule you. In fact, your are in charge and can run the show. Here’s to a day ahead of presence and peace. Love + light, Claire x Read more

The one thing I could share with you

The one thing I could share with you

Posted May 03, 2016

If there was only one thing I could share with you it would be this… Here we are, in May. Wow. I’m a little blown away that we are nearing the mid-way point of 2016. So many dreams to make manifest. So many things to tick off the list. So much left undone. Yet at the same time, so many dreams already have become a reality. So much HAS been done. So much joy and love filling this heart of mine. We often get a little overwhelmed and flustered when we notice time hurtling past us that we don’t remember to stop and actually take stock of how much we have achieved. We may have started something new, travelled, had a baby – lots of big, beautiful experiences. Or maybe your year has dished up lots of ‘smaller’ more internal achievements like mental and emotional shifts. Realigning priorities. Saying NO more often. Moving through challenges with more peace and acceptance. So take a moment now. Deep breath first. And offer up thanks for everything that has unfolded already for you this year. The good, the bad, the not so pretty, the damn ugly. Instead of getting wound up in what’s left unfinished so far, all the things you wanted to start and haven’t yet (for me that = a new ebook AND a new meditation offering. OH for more TIME!) look at all you have accomplished in mind, body and soul. You’ve done a lot beautiful. You have kicked many, many goals. And even if, like me, your life revolves around baby, THAT is a huge achievement (nurturing and nourishing life). If fact, it’s one of the biggest if I do say so myself ++ Before I leave you today there is something I want to share… in fact, if I was only ever able to pass on ONE lesson, ONE tool… that ONE ‘thing’ in which I truly feel could change your life it is this…. Meditation. Meditate. Stillness. Quiet. Peace. I was lucky enough to speak at a Bloggers Brunch (by Kids Business) last Friday to a room full of incredible mama’s (who are all working, blogging, mumming and juggling!). I decided to share the core of my life’s lessons and work which is the experience, energy and attitude of SURRENDER and how this leads to a life of freedom.  It’s a message that I still feel needs to be heard, relearnt and practiced over and over again. Alongside me, the delightful Jacinta Tynan (author and speaker) also spoke of the importance of presence and surrender. At the end of our presentations we had a quick chat on the power of meditation and how – as mamas and women of this world – it has been our life blood and saving grace. We both concluded the same thing, almost in unison: “If there was only one thing I could pass on and hopefully influence others into experiencing, that would be meditation. I would only ever share meditation, if that’s all I could”. Meditation is the single one thing that has invited me to connect deeper with myself and the world around me at the same time. It has provided me with more peace, clarity, surrender, compassion and willingness than anything else ever has or ever could … Meditation has made this quote become a reality for me. It has made it possible to live up to these words: Problems will never cease. Life never stops throwing massive (heavy) curve balls that throw you off course. However we can find peace despite it. Or because of it. But if we are able to stay in the centre of storm, make the choose to not object (so loudly and profusely) it makes that storm bearable. Sometimes even beautiful. Often life-changing. (p.s thank you to Kimbalikes on Instagram for turning my words into this gorgeous quote) ++ So my lovelies. If today you take ONE thing out of this newsletter, please make it this. Meditate. Enough dancing around the idea of meditation, if you’ve yet to start.  Enough putting it off even though you know how good it is for you. Enough sidelining it for folding the laundry and staring at your wrinkles in the mirror. Meditate. No more ‘tomorrow I’ll start’. Start today. No more ‘I just can’t meditate’. You can. You will. No more believing it’s for everyone else and not you. Stillness is at the very core of your higher self. ++ Meditate with me If you need a helping hand to start meditating please check out my guided meditations. Professionally recorded and to stunning soundtracks I know you, like thousands before you, will love these meditations. There are three albums to choose from, focusing on different needs and desires and each come with a journalling guide too. The Reveal Your Inner Radiance meditations are short, powerful and created specifically to support you through the plethora of challenges and situations we find ourselves in.

My Four favourite ways to cope with life

My Four favourite ways to cope with life

Posted April 19, 2016

Woah. What a crazy couple of weeks.  But in a good way. You know when you look back and you think, gosh there was alot going on yet I don’t feel frazzled or ‘undone’… Well, naturally, I’ve been pondering on WHY that is. I mean, both my websites went down, Soleil decided to reignite her allergy to sleep (fun times), cut a few new teeth and run a stupidly high fever. My new wellness venture has been picking up speed, coaching, muming and trying to be a good wifey … ahh the list goes on. And yet, right now as I draft this blog to you I feel surprisingly centered. I feel content. I feel like I’ve got my shit sorted. Now, don’t get me wrong, some days I chuck a little wobbly, but they are minor wobbles thankfully! So, I come back to WHY? What’s the turning point here, what’s upped my ‘coping game’. And here’s what I can honestly say  – there are a few key factors and one massive game changer. 1. The superfood supplement I am taking has given me bucketloads of energy, obliterated my belly bloat and excess weight and I’m sleeping better. It’s allowing me to get more out life. (Email me at hello@claireobeid.com if you want to know more!) 2. Regular Chakra Cleansing – I’ve been doing this for years but I’ve started reverting back to a more yogi, vibrational based way of cleansing. 3. Clocking up some serious me-time. Small, nuggets of golden silence at a yoga class, reading, or drawing. Even if it’s only half an hour, I’ve made it a priority! But there is one serious game-changer. Here is, what I honestly believe, the single most important tool in my goody bag… SURRENDER. When my website went down and my web team couldn’t fix it fast enough. I let go. When my daughter refuses to sleep anywhere but on my chest, all night long. I let go. When my day is a juggling act of coaching, business calls, mum-life.  I let go. When my house was FULL of unfolded laundry and no time to get done. I let go. When my time was stretched and there was no space for me. I let go. I let go of the resistance. I surrender to the situation. I accept. And when I’m not accepting, I breathe and I have a moment – a seriously human moment (cry, huff and puff, reach out to my soul sisters) – and then I try it again, I let go. I choose to not fight it all, not thread a complicated story and hopefully not bury myself in the lack of control, or smashed with overwhelm. ++ If you’ve followed my work for a while you’ll know that surrender has been my ongoing, never-ending lesson (for me and to you) and that’s because it truly creates the biggest shifts I’ve every experienced. So if you’ve not done it yet this week, today… right now. Just surrender. Let go. See how your ‘coping game’ strengthens and soon you’ll find yourself in that centered space of acceptance. love + light, Claire x Read more

How to do Vibrational Chakra Cleansing

How to do Vibrational Chakra Cleansing

Posted April 19, 2016

“It is the intention behind you giving and receiving that is the most important thing. The intention should always be to create happiness for the giver and receiver, because happiness is life-supporting and life-sustaining”… And it is with this energy that today I share with you a little video on the vibrational chakra cleansing I’ve been doing lately.It brings me so much happiness to share what is supporting me lately. It always has. Truthfully, as a natural born story-teller who loves connection and community, sharing with you is quite a selfish act. I’m getting a decent dose of joy in offering you this little video! My intention, as I filmed this video was to inspire you, my beautiful reader, to feel empowered and excited to work with, cleanse and strengthen your divinely given chakra system. ++ Your chakra system is your direct connection to source energy. Ensuring you are energetically wired to be here on earth, yet always maintaining a clear pathway home to the source of all things. To our oneness. Our chakra system is the unseen ‘motherboard’ which threads through our emotional, mental, energetic and even physical body. It requires attention, maintenance, healing. The ancient yogis, seers and mystics across all time have sensed, seen and tuned into these energy centres as spinning vortexes of cosmic energy. Our personal powerhouses working away to support our human experience here on earth. And as Belinda Davidson says – the queen of the chakras in my opinion, my spiritual mentor and an incredibly psychic and light filled women – “If you want to change your life, change your energy”. Just as you want to change your body and health you eat healthily and move consciously. Just as you want to educate yourself, you study. Or when you want to calm your mind you meditate or commune with nature. Just as we care for our mind, body and spirit we must also care for our energy anatomy. The ancient yogis believed in cleansing and strengthening the chakras by not only focusing on the centre, visualising it’s colour and perhaps even size and shape but also tuning in to its personal vibration, or BIJA. Bija means ‘seed’. It is a meaningless word that relates to nothing other than the vibrational energy. The root of those energy centre – it’s seed. Ok, with a that little lesson on chakras sorted I’d like to hand this video over to you. I wish for two things. That you feel my intention behind sharing this with you and you receive with open arms and an open heart. Ready to soak in happiness. Secondly, I wish for you to fall in love with your own chakra body and start paying attention to it with love and dedication. Because it WILL change your life. And here it is my loves, as promised, a little video to guide you through my new fave way of chakra cleansing. Click on the image below to watch the video. Love + light, Claire x Read more

Bring out your big, badass ego

Bring out your big, badass ego

Posted March 21, 2016

Bring out your big, badass ego! It’s been radio silence over here since I sent out my invitation to join my new wellness venture. I’ve missed you, but it’s been exciting, busy and crackling with energy over here! And my god does it feels so good to be diving into MORE with a team of beautiful women all out for the same soulful goals – freedom, flexibility, better health, more wealth. An ABUNDANT life in every way. And you know what has been interesting? My recent Kinesiology sessions have brought up alot of stuff around my ego as I grow this business. I’ve been getting weekly sessions over the last month to clear alot of residual negative energy, negative programming and limiting self beliefs. Becoming a mama really shook things up! So I saw it high time that I hit the reset button and upgraded myself to a cleaner, higher vibration. My ego and bringing it into balance has been the centre of these sessions. And before you get confused as to why I would want to balance my ego, hear me out here. Yes, we need to keep our ego in check – that voice of our inner ‘mean girl’ as my beautiful friend Melissa Ambrosini calls it. We need to quieten that voice that tells us we aren’t good enough or we can’t do that. It’s a struggle, for many of us, to not let our ego control and override our lives. BUT, what if I told you that you actually need to learn how to harness your ego in a positive way? What if I told you to start honing your ego into a BIG, BADASS, KICKASS inner warrior? Well, it’s a game-changer if you can…. Your ego is at the centre of your motivation. Your ego is what helps you focus on your destined path Your ego is what pushes you forward, in a healthy way. Your ego is allowed to be used, positively. Your ego, when in balance and free from fear, is your best friend in creating success Your ego boosts your enthusiasm for life and helps you achieve abundance Your ego supports you to become great using your skills and talents Your ego connects you and grounds you to this human life ++ My ego has called our for attention during my sessions. It’s asked me to stop ignoring it and suppressing it and to start harnessing it in a much more positive way. I’ve come to really understand how important my ego is, and when used correctly (instead of being used by it) it WILL back my corner, fight for what I desire and help me climb those mountains. Facing challenges, staying inspired, taking action, moving forward. Your ego can be your badass bestie. So, whilst we all need to learn to check our negative, down-playing, trickster ego we do need to strike that perfect balance. The one where we need life to hum along with a little more kick and spark. You know those times, right… when it’s time to hit the pedal to the metal. Vrooom! Well that’s where I am right now, and it FEELS so damn good to be teaming up with my ego in the right one. Cheers to YOU and your big, badass ego. love + light, Claire x Read more
