Finding your soul purpose: Interview with Belinda Davidson

Finding your soul purpose: Interview with Belinda Davidson

Posted May 08, 2014

Right now I’m in such a delicious space… I’m learning more about myself on an energetic level and I’m peeling off layers of ego and unnecessary emotional junk. Not to mention the deep healing that is taking place through the work I’m doing with my chakras. And all of this work is leading me into a deeper, more profound unraveling of the self. I am more willing and ready, than I have ever been, to connect to my purpose on a soul level. I want to live, aligned with and from my soul. The incredible Belinda Davidson, who is one of my (soul) mentors, is the incredible woman supporting and guiding me (and many others) through this journey. Her words of wisdom, her insight (as a genuine psychic, she can really ‘see’) and her straight-talking energy ensures that everything she teaches get right down to the core of you. Your soul. And when it comes to the soul, to finding your purpose and living authentically from that truth, Belinda’s perspective and methods  – strengthening your chakras, practicing mindfulness, unraveling the ego and healing with white light – not only make sense but they work in the most direct manner. Which is why I’m so thrilled to share this incredible interview I did with Belinda on finding your soul purpose and living an authentic life. I resonate so strongly with her insights and knowledge and I know that her perspective will really open your heart and mind. Understanding the journey to your soul purpose through the lens of ego, mindfulness, authenticity and the chakra system is so refreshing, life-changing and comforting. We don’t have to struggle, fight and push our way through life and to find and live from joy. Yes, we must do the hard work and sometimes it’s dirty, but it’s not a futile mission. It will bear fruit. ::::::: CLICK BELOW TO PLAY https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/79968734/Belinda%20Jean%20Davidson%20on%202014-04-25%20at%2012.31.mp3 RIGHT CLICK HERE DOWNLOAD + SAVE In this interview we discuss: Our built-in soul purpose How our purpose is part of what we are meant to do.

Interview Series: Living Yoga off the mat with Tara Bliss

Interview Series: Living Yoga off the mat with Tara Bliss

Posted April 22, 2014

This is a new blog series that I am so excited to kick-off today. It is a reflection of how incredible women and yogis are taking the powerful and ancient principles of yoga off the mat and into their world. ++ One of my favourite phrases (and if you’ve been to a yoga class of mine you’ve probably heard me say this) is this – “Without the breath in yoga, you are simply making shapes”. And today, I live by that more than I ever have. Yoga was the catalyst for my journey of self-discovery, inquiry and transformation. First on a physical level – healing and nourishing my body. Next on an emotional and mental level – reframing my perspective, shifting my mindset and bringing my being into balance. And finally, now, on an energetic level – working with the energetic body/ chakra system and cultivating a more feeling-based existence as I get to know my soul (and lead with it) more and more.  And yet, all are still happening simultaneously and daily. The vehicle for me, to dive into all of this, is the breath. The presence of the breath and its movement through every layer from the physical, right through to the emotional and energetic demonstrates how it’s a powerful facilitator of healing, transformation, insight and connection. And the breath, to me, is a daily reminder that I am both spirit and human. As I sit in reflection and gratitude for this incredible, life changing practice that is yoga, I can’t even fathom how many lessons I’ve taken off my yoga mat and into my world. Compassion, Contentment, Non-judgment, Presence, Non-violence, Discipline, Devotion. Within the 8 limbs of Yoga, Asana (poses) is actually the third limb. In the West, the lessons that we gain on that mat are actually taught first. We have entered this journey of transformation and evolution via the body – and that works for us today in this modern world. Traditionally, however the asana (poses) came only after the moral and ethical codes (Yamas and Niyamas) were explored. The lessons of Ahimsa (non-violence) Asteya (non-stealing), Satya (truthfulness) and Santosha (contentment), Svadhyaya (self-study) and Isvara Pranidhana (surrender to god) all feature in the first two limbs of the 8-fold path – The Yamas and Niyamas (check back in here soon, I’ll be breaking these down in detail on the blog). These are potent lessons that can carry you through life. Hand-holding, guiding and helping you navigate through sticky, troublesome moments. This blog post series, which will feature wisdom-filled women who are also yogis, is designed to show how a deep transformation can come about through the devotional practice of yoga. These women will be sharing how yoga and its lessons have changed their life, off the mat – not simply from the asana but also the mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic learnings that unfold, almost without focused effort. That’s the beauty of yoga! I am beyond thrilled to share these women and yoga with you. Whether you are a yogi or not these lessons are here for you to absorb, ponder and apply into your being and your way of being in this world! :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: To kick-off off this new series today we have Tara Bliss, from Such Different Skies – someone I truly adore and feel eternally grateful to now call a friend! I believe the universe has blessed me with a like-minded kindred soul every time Tara and I text, email or chat. I’m in awe of this 27 year bundle of wisdom, swagger and love. Like me, she is passionate about living a life aligned with soul. And as a Yogi you are going to promptly devour her insights both on and off the mat! I’m so excited for you to learn how Tara has taken the powerful practice of Yoga into her being. ++ Hello Tara! Please finish this sentence: My yoga practice is… my medicine, my maintenance, my playground, my excuse to explore myself. To me, yoga means.… dancing between two worlds: the form and the ethereal; the masculine and the feminine; the softness and the rigidity; the ease and the effort. Yoga is the force that dissolves those lines of separation. My experience off/on the mat has… transformed my entire understanding of the world and how I operate in it. On my mat, I realise that any resistance, frustration or friction that arises within me doesn’t bubble up to the surface due to outside circumstances. When I’m on the mat, I can’t blame the traffic, or the weather, or my husband for misunderstanding me – there are no excuses. I have to take responsibility for the gunk that reveals itself, and most importantly, I have to decide to become an empowered enough woman to rise above and transcend the ego. This is the most humbling, profound and extraordinary journey I could ever hope for, and I’m often reduced to me tears that I was fortunate to find my way here. The biggest shift/epiphany/moment of insight I’ve ever had during yoga was… to follow on from the last question, it’s been HUGE for me to understand viscerally – in my body – the concept of energy flowing where your awareness is going. The simple redirection of focus from my fatiguing muscles to the prickle of air that enters and leaves my nostrils is so powerful, so anchoring. We always have a choice in life on what we want to place our attention upon, and yoga is no exception. Quick-Fire Questions What are the lessons you carry on a daily basis, off your mat? I endeavour to: :: Investigate struggle and discomfort with a light, curious mind. :: Become a more self-referenced woman with each day, which means continually cutting the chord of comparison. :: Celebrate, deepen and honour my breath. Why are these important to you? I’m a kinder, more present, more engaged person when I (literally) practice what I preach. As a coach and mentor, I have been in […] Read more

Cutting cords of attachment from the people that hold you back

Cutting cords of attachment from the people that hold you back

Posted April 15, 2014

Sometimes we just have to make the cut. Slice through the energetic cords that attach us to those people that hold us back. Cutting the cords of attachment we have with people isn’t easy… but at some point, it has to be done…and you’ll know who and when! I bet you’ve got someone in mind, right now, simply from reading those first few sentences? You know, ‘that person’ might not be in your life at this point in time. They could be simply a memory, in your head and in your heart, from the past. ‘That person’ might be the bus driver, that snarled at you and barked a grizzly response to your request for direction. Or maybe ‘that person’ is someone that has recently pissed you right off… and you are still carrying it, in your body, your bones, your mind… ++ If you know you have an energetic cord with someone, you’ll want to watch this video. It’s a quickie (less than 4 minutes) where I share how to disconnect and cut, for good, that unhealthy holding-you-back bond. CLICK PLAY TO WATCH P.s the video cuts a little short at the end – I had editing issues! ++ Some thought-starter questions to help you once you’ve watched the vid. Who am I still connected, energetically too? Why is that bond still there? What role does that cord play in my life? Is that connection weighing me down? What would it feel like to cut that cord? The truth is, we all need to cancel, clear and delete many of the bonds and ties we’ve developed over time. We simply need to be honest about what is no longer serving us and who is holding us back. love + light, Claire x Read more

What is your brand of balance?

What is your brand of balance?

Posted April 03, 2014

Balance. The ever-elusive, highly regarded anti-dote to our stressful, chaotic lives. Have you found it? Do you know what works for you? Or are you still searching, high-and-low, trying other people’s balance on for size (to no avail!)? If each of us is unique and like no other – the way we look, what works for our bodies, our heritage, our way of thinking and feeling – then it’s safe to say that how we ‘do it’ (life and everything in it) must be different too. The problem? We are all too busy trying to find the answers for our health, happiness and of course ‘balance’ in the external world and in what others are doing that we don’t stop long enough to ask ‘Is this right for me?’ Find your own brand of balance Today’s vlog is a reflection, a musing on ‘balance’. I think almost every single client I’ve ever coached has specifically wanted to work on cultivating and maintaining balance in their life. So, I wanted to open up a discussion around balance and really get you to drill down into it and ask yourself – what is balance to me and how do I ensure it’s aligned with who I am? What works naturally for me, instead of trying on someone else’s formula? In the vlog I share: what balance looks to me – how I keep myself in check and how I live in a way that is most supportive for me why it’s so important to cultivate your own unique brand of balance how to find balance for yourself CLICK PLAY TO WATCH Your turn: *Finish this sentence: My brand of balance is _____________* Comment below and share what balance looks like to you! love + light, Claire x Read more

Swap comparison for creativity + authenticity

Swap comparison for creativity + authenticity

Posted April 01, 2014

Comparison + Competition. An ugly energy to feel and carry with you. And the sad thing? Most of us experience the life-sapping, joy-stealing energy of comparison way too often! At this time of year I find that the cogs are turning, the wheels are in full motion. All guns blazing. By the time March rolls around I SEE that, collectively, we are all sinking our teeth into our dreams and desires. Which, honestly, makes me light up. How incredible to witness so many people doing whatever they can to transform, grow, stretch, expand… and ultimately SOAR. Personally, I’m there with you. I’m working with a business coach, doing the incredible Bright-Eyed and Bloghearted ecourse with Rachel MacDonald. I’m also doing the School of The Modern Mystic with Belinda Davidson (level 1 and 2) AND at the same time blogging, coaching, writing and refreshing my website behind the scenes. Epic right? Incredible. I’m living so many of my core-desired feelings – Devoted, Connected, Inspired – that I know are going to lead me into the other feelings I want to embody: Bliss, Light and Freedom! It’s an exciting time, but let’s get real, sometimes when we over-commit and we jump on board so many incredible courses/programs/events/experiences/challenges we often back ourselves into the corner of overwhelm. Often, we over-commit because we don’t want to miss out on what everyone else is doing (FOMO!) Or we genuinely commit because we have a call too, but then we start measuring ourselves against everyone else – how they are doing it, what results they are getting, where they are at. And then what happens? Comparison and Competition shows up. Ugly, brooding, heavy… and here to teach us a lesson! We start to feel: Held back Not good enough Limited Fearful Worrisome Missing out Getting nowhere Stressed Sound familiar? Ahuh! Today, I wanted to share with some content from The Freedom Project ecourse. The lesson is a powerfully supportive tool in bringing Comparison + Competition into the light, drawn from the shadows, and then ready to be released into the wild. ++ COMPARISON STEALS YOUR JOY Comparison and competition are the big guns in The Ego’s arsenal. The Ego loves to play with us – building us up or tearing us down and this really comes through when we are in that deeply unnerving state of comparison + competition. Comparison + Competition also strongly relates to the idea that we are ‘separate’ from each other and from the universe. It’s that ‘me against the world’ mentality. You probably already know how to ‘detect’ how and when comparison and competition sneaks into your life… and if you don’t, we are going to find out together! Comparison + Competition: It consumes us, it drives us to do and say things that we don’t want and it also feels like a bad rash we can’t get rid of. As Brene Brown puts it: “Comparison is this crushing paradox of ‘fit in and stand-out!”. We must be like everyone else, but better. No wonder we are weighed by comparison + competition. It’s hard to be our authentic self when we are trying to be like everyone else AND at the same time trying to out-do others – because if we don’t then we aren’t good enough. I won’t lie, this is uncomfortable – looking at Comparison + Competition – but we need to get real with it. You with me? It’s time to look deeper and further than we might normally like so to we can easily see ourselves in comparison mode. ++ LESSON ONE: IDENTIFY COMPARISON AND COMPETITION Step 1: Right out how you FEEL when you are in comparison mode. Journal it out. Let all those heavy feelings spew forth! And, as you do this examples might start to pop into your head. Make sure you jot them down too! Step 2: Witness where and how you are measuring yourself against others. Just observe. Become aware. Step 3: Explore the limiting beliefs that are underlying and carrying the energy of comparison and competition. What is DRIVING that feeling of comparison and competition? To help you discover what’s really going on please use the ‘tree tool’ below. Imagine a tree – complete from root system to leaves. Different parts of the tree represent different elements of comparison/competition that you are experiencing. Use this ‘tree’ to dig deep Leaves – Symptoms: What are the symptoms you are experiencing because of comparison/competition? Branches – Emotions: What emotions are you experiencing because of comparison/competition? Tree Trunk – Events: What are the specific events related to this? Tree Root – Beliefs: What are the limiting self-beliefs and fears that live below and carry all of the above! ++ Love note: Return to the truth. Once you’ve done the above, I’m sure you are asking ‘Now what?’ Fair question. And here’s my answer: RETURN TO THE TRUTH of who you truly are. You are not your fears. You are not your negative, restrictive, limiting thoughts. You are love, light, freedom. You are more than enough. You are divine. Remind yourself this over and over and over. In doing you will be able to keep your eyes on your journey, and no one else’s. Instead of noticing if someone is ahead, behind or on par with you (Egoic games of credit/blame, build up/tear down!) try to drop the attachment to the meaning of words such as ‘better, worse, ahead, behind’ and just be completely present and accepting of where you are. ++ LESSON TWO: SWAP COMPARISON FOR CREATIVITY Letting go of the attitude and behavioural pattern of comparison is about cultivating authenticity and creativity – being comfortable to stand as you are without conforming or competing or comparing. You are unlike no other. You are you. Nothing can replicate that. Creativity is expression. It’s not about ‘achieving and accomplishing’, but more about bringing to life your self and expressing your truth through form. Creativity is no longer about conforming, fitting in and competing but instead […] Read more

The key is in your energy body

The key is in your energy body

Posted March 27, 2014

Your energetic system is your everything  – when we pay attention to it what we truly desire becomes reality… In fullness, wholeness. As I write this blog I’m sat in a cafe eating breakfast and answering emails and comments from incredible women responding to my recent newsletter or on social media. Lately, there has been a profound connection; a very apparent one, cultivated between me and my beautiful tribe. There always has been a strong bond, but let me just say this, it’s solidifying. I feel a cord of love is being woven with strength and softness. These emails and comments I’ve been receiving are truly talking to my heart. I get these women. They get me. I feel as if each and every one of you beautiful souls are one of my oldest friends. As I write this I am feeling teary – honesty – and I can’t write fast enough to express what I want too. So, what has this got to do with our energetic system? Well, after connecting with my tribe I took a moment to ponder…to ask; ‘What’s going on here? What I am experiencing right now?’ And then it hit me… in my work with Medical Intuitive and Psychic, Belinda Davidson, we have specifically worked on my heart chakra. And it seems, that work was starting to show up in my life. I can feel that these moments with my tribe are about your heart, my heart and how it yearns for deep connection with the world around and the people in it. Your energy never lies Seriously, my deep longing to connect with people on a soul level was reflected and seen by Belinda in my heart chakra. Yep, she could literally see that my heart chakra needed an energetic tune-up. My heart knew what it wanted and boy was it being out-loud (and on purpose) about it to me, daily.  I could literally feel a deep yearning to connect from heart-to-heart… a truly authentic bond, one that gives and receives love in every way and with everyone (family, clients, friends, husband, tribe!) But before that was possible heart chakra needed help – it needed to be healed, cleansed, strengthened before it could be cracked open. (Learn more about Chakras HERE). When Belinda first saw the state of affairs in my heart chakra, I actually felt relief that there was an energetic reason for how I was feeling. But mostly, knowing and completely believing in our energetic bodes, I felt reassured that this could change. It just needed attention. And it has. On so many levels… I feel ready to love, unconditionally. I feel ready to receive unconditional love. I feel more generous and joyful than before (yes, I still have heavy ‘cloudy’ moments but more on that in another post. Note: it has to do with my third-eye chakra!) I fee a sense of connection, on a soul level, that is more authentic than ever before. I bet you are wondering, ‘Well, how? How exactly has this shift happened?’ Let me start but sharing this with you. Something, I know you already know… We are more than just what we see. The physical body is the external manifestation of our soul. But we are literally multi-layered. Your energy body(s) The ancient yogis referred to these layers as Koshas, or sheaths. Our five Koshas represent different aspects of our entire being Physical body – the material, the body we live in everyday Energetic body – our life force, energy channels and system, including the chakras Mental body – our mind and our ego – our waking consciousness and our intellect Spiritual body – the feeling space, intuition, inner wisdom, Bliss body – connection with divinity, enlightened, higher self Imagine an egg. At the centre of that egg is your blissful, higher self. Around that egg is another layer, another complete circle and that is our intuitive self. Then another egg, which is your mental layer, and so on. All layers feed into one another. Everything we do affects each layer. Some more than others. When you practice yoga, for example you are mostly working on the physical body but you are also cleaning up the mental and energetic body to some extent – breath-work opens the energetic channels, and the calm focus allows the mind to settle. For most of us we usually start doing the serious clean-up work via the physical body. At least, that’s what I did. First, the cleaner diet and then follows a stronger, happier body. Movement and food affects the physical layer. That then, usually, guides us down the inner-work path; towards reframing our perspective, peeling back mental and emotional layers, questioning if the way we behave, think and function is actually working for us. We do the dirty work, trying to live as better versions of ourselves and cultivate inner and outer world transformation. And then, for many, me included, we need to, eventually, dive into the energetic layer. Often, there is no choice for it. Perhaps the next step in your path to true happiness and health is to work with the unseen energy that is guiding and governing your life? And perhaps, you feel it’s the only way forward? So, here we are… at the energetic body. And this is where the real work for me has been going on lately. How to heal your energy body Now, let me get back to your ‘how’ question. This is what I’ve been doing to really work on my heart chakra… Working directly on my chakras (a daily practice). Doing Belinda’s guided chakras cleanse. Sitting in meditation and feeling into, cleansing and strengthening my chakras. (I highly recommend this meditation, you can get your own copy HERE) Energetic healing – kinesiology, Reiki (I do this to myself) and white light sessions with Belinda (Book into her weekly, FREE white light sessions) Journalling – talking to my heart, specifically, and opening up a dialogue with it. (Watch my how-to […] Read more

Get mystical with Belinda Davidson

Get mystical with Belinda Davidson

Posted March 20, 2014

Do you want to get witchy with me? I bet you’ve never been asked that question before! But truthfully, let’s get mystical! It’s time, isn’t it? Can you feel that there is a major shift going on in the world… people are opening up to ancient truths, to universal energy, to the knowledge that there is more to us than meets the eye. When it comes to spiritual and soulful work, I am constantly surprised by how many more people are talking and walking in this way. And one woman that is leading the mystical way is the incredible Belinda Davidson. I say incredible because… As one of my mentors she’s truly helped me on a profound level – energetically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically! She is a medical intuitive and potently psychic – no bullshit here peeps, she is the real deal and not at all ‘woo-w00. (Thankfully!) Belinda is changing the world, one person at a time. Truly. Belinda’s official bio: Belinda Davidson is a well-known psychic, small business owner, author and public speaker. She is founder of The School of the Modern Mystic, a world class, online teaching facility dedicated to helping ‘modern mystics’ embrace spirituality and discover their life purpose. She is also a mentor and consultant, and amongst her private clients are also celebrities, public personalities, doctors and business leaders. She is often referred to as the ‘secret weapon,’ because she has always been able to ‘see into a person’ and know what is not working. Belinda is respected and adored for her practical approach to spirituality. She may be a full-fledged psychic, but there isn’t a woo-woo bone in her body. Pretty Impressive, huh? Well, before I tell you how you can get mystical and learn how to harness your OWN psychic abilities and talents (yep, I kid you not, we all have the power within us – we just need to learn how to unlock it) let me share with you a little interview I did with Belinda. I had the chance to ask Belinda a few questions to get an insight into this amazing women. Seriously, I think she is beyond words… the world (not forgetting myself!) is such a better place with her in it. I’m so grateful she has been gifted with such an incredible psychic ability, and even more appreciative that I have had the chance to work with her directly! I hope you enjoy Belinda’s responses as much as I did! ++ On the fly interview with Belinda I am most inspired by … Courageous people who are willing to face their fears, and move forward in life. What are you non-negotiables when it comes to your lifestyle? Daily chakra cleanse and White Light work. Days when I feel dark, heavy, off-centre are…. “Ego” days, where I need to let go and accept myself more. I often tell myself on those days that, “Where I need to be in life, is right here and now,” and that brings me back into the present moment. I handle those days by… I often tell myself on those days that, “Where I need to be in life, is right here and now,” and that brings me back into the present moment. The one thing I wish I could pass onto friends, family, the world is… Don’t wait to start living. Live! My most pivotal and profound life-changing epiphany was…. And it taught me…. When I realised that my psychic gifts weren’t a curse but a blessing. It taught me that I can use these abilities to help people heal, become psychic too and discover their life’s purpose. I come alive when… I’m alone, in the dark, meditating or drifting in and out of nothingness. (Or when I’m raw dancing). I shrink and feel ‘lost’ when… I compare myself to others or check email or Facebook too many times a say. (Don’t we all! Claire) I believe without a shadow of a doubt…. If you work on your chakras and get them working, your life will become magical! I’m still figuring out… Why I decided to do 6 month courses in The School of the Modern Mystic. People love them but it’s so much work! I believe in the chakras + white light so much because… …they work, and are the most powerful tools for spiritual development I know. (I second that! Claire) Becoming ‘mystical’ is important because By doing this we are re-claiming our psychic and healing abilities. ++ School of the Modern Mystic: Let’s get mystical! Now, tell me… are you keen to get mystical? Want to let out your inner with? I know I do! Me, me, me! I’ve been called, for at least a whole year, to tap into my soul more, to power up my intuitive sight and to learn how to work with ‘energy’ more. So, you may have already seen a few mentions of this ecourse on facebook, but nevertheless I absolutely must tell you about this course! The School of The Modern Mystic is Belinda Davidson’s 6 month training program. This is a course like no other. As Belinda herself says this is not a ‘study’ only course. This is a training in becoming mystical. You will learn how to… Change your energy, and change your life Awaken your inner witch Discover your life’s purpose and learn how to pursue it! Become the greatest version of yourself and serve the world in our best possible way The course focuses on your energetic system – learning how to work with the chakras. It also teaches you about white light and how to channel it and work with it to manifest what you truly desire. You’ll also learn about mindfulness and put it into practice, daily. The best bit is that you are learning from someone who does this on a daily basis – Belinda can see into the energetic body of a person and see their past life history. She also works with white light […] Read more

Make this: Vegan Rice Paper Rolls

Make this: Vegan Rice Paper Rolls

Posted March 13, 2014

The last few weeks in Sydney, as Summer slowly drew to a close, have been sticky. Humidity levels have reached uncomfortable… Which means, for me at least, my appetite completely wanes. I can’t quite stomach a heavy meal when it’s hot. Anyone else? Is it that just me? The other day my hubby and I felt inspired to whip up a light, summery and mostly raw meal. The result – the most delicious, satisfying and damn-easy dinner (lunch, snack – whatever you want it to be!). Because I hate having to read through a whole post before getting to a recipe I’m going to dive right into this one for you now, with these parting words – freaking delicious! What you’ll need: (makes approx 12) 2 carrots, grated 1/2 red cabbagge, grated 1 large handful of snow pea sprouts 1/2 avocado – mashed up 1 red capsicum sliced thinly 1/2 cup of peanut butter 1/2 deseeded pomegranate Big handful of chopped coriander Tamari Sauce Fish Sauce Pomegranate concentrate (optional) 1 fresh lime Sesame seeds 1 tsp Dried Chilli Flakes Packet of Rice Paper Sheets What to do: Mix all the veggies together, except the avocado and peanut butter. Mix up your sauce – a heavy handed splash of Tamari Sauce, Fish Sauce + 1 tsp of pomegranate concentrate, chilli, salt and pepper to taste, juice of the lime. Follow the instructions on the rice paper sheets – dunk one sheet a time into a wide, flat pan with hot/warm water for no longer than 5 seconds. Lay flat onto a clean chux dishcloth. (Not paper toweling, the rice paper sheets will stick!) Spread some peanut butter onto the rice paper towards the back 3rd of the sheet. Pile on 1-2 tbls of the veggie mix and a dollop of avocado on top. Roll gently – fold the sides in first and slowly roll it up. Continue with the rest of the sheets. Serve with a drizzle of the sauce (it’ll be in the bottom of your veggie mix) and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Voila! Heaven. The best part? You can go wild with veggies, fillings and flavours. Spinach and prawn? Sashimi Tuna and wasabi mayo? Pork + Mint? Mmm Eat and enjoy! Claire x Read more
