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

Are you ready to experience a life of MORE with me?

Are you ready to experience a life of MORE with me?

Posted March 15, 2016

Come and experience a life of MORE with me So it seems my post last on my new venture really caught your attention. I’ve been fielding requests and emails from incredible women (and a few good men!) who are ready to grab opportunity by the horns. The response has prompted me to share my new direction in a little more detail because it’s clear that my new direction can help you create a life of MORE… MORE HEALTH MORE WEALTH MORE FREEDOM So, my loves, consider this your official invitation to join the team I am building… ++ Let me share a little secret. It was only a few months ago I was in a flurry of overwhelm… How do I juggle life + baby? How do I stay on top of my health? How will I get back into work and create the income I used to? How can I contribute financially to my family? How do I create abundance now that I have NO time? How can I feel positive, energised + alive (despite the sleep deprivation!) How can I make a real difference in this world? How can I reconnect with my soul sisters? To say I felt desperate was an understatement. Motherhood + my life had come crashing in – it felt like they were at loggerheads. My dreams, my hopes, my desires and my (incredible, joyful) important role as a mama. I thought it must be possible to make it all FLOW and work together. But in the moment it felt like I was stuck in quicksand. Fighting the inevitable suffocation. Fighting a losing battle. So I called out to the universe… I said “Hey, Buddy… I need a helping hand here. I’m going to lean on you. I’m asking for a miracle. A little magic please… I need something to support me. I need something to answer my prayers”. And the universe decided to play. Something landed in my lap – something that flipped my health around, increased my mood and energy. Something that reignited my passion and drive for my work, something that created a NEW pathway towards abundance. AND it came packaged up in the tight embrace of my soul-sisterhood. As I shared last week, here I am now, diving head first into a NEW venture (don’t worry I’m still coaching and running my online biz). A wellness business that for the first time ever has me teaming up with the best #girlbosses and fellow mamas around – Debbie Spellman  – Mind Detox Therapist, Life Coach, Writer and Speaker and  Personal Trainer Wonder Woman + Holistic Health Coach Valeria Ramirez. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg… our extraordinary team of women, hungry for MORE, is rapidly growing. Together we are on a mission to impact lives in a big way – more health, wealth and freedom! So consider this a personal invitation to join us. To be part of our tribe of kick-ass empowered wellness women who are going to make BIG waves. ++ Time to get real… This is for you if: – You currently have a business but truthfully you’re living month to month. Following your passions isn’t always easy, but that doesn’t mean you should throw the towel in. You want abundance, finally. And you want to keep following your passions but without the hustle to make ends meet. – You aren’t happy in your job/work. You want to own your life, your hours, your time. You want to do something that feels BIG and special and makes an impact. Maybe you are tired of the travel, the long hours, the soul-less work. The drama. You want freedom, success and abundance and TIME. You want to be your own #girlboss. – The thought of teaming up with empowered women who are LIT up with passion and drive makes you light up too. You want to be part of a sisterhood with a shared vision and who will hold your hand, guide you and coach you along the way. – You want to make a difference. You care about changing the lives of others for the better. You are influencer, a leader, a walker of your talk. And you are ready to help others live BIG and for you to do the same. – Health and wellness is a priority to you. And you firmly believe that being in perfect health leads to happiness, success, abundance and life filled with love. AND to share this with others is in alignment with your purpose and life goals. This is not for you if: – You are not committed to do what it takes to (finally) change your life (your health, your wealth). If fear based thinking gets in the way of change and you aren’t willing to rise above it, this isn’t for you. – You are not ready to be mentored and coached and be part of an awesome team who will motivate and inspire you. – You are not willing to push your boundaries and try something new to experience and achieve more than you believe is possible. – You are happy with your current employment and don’t want to work for yourself. Everything is just fine as it is. – You don’t care about supporting others to live a healthier, wealthier, freedom filled life. ++ Let me say this, loud and clear; you will transform your life and YOURSELF in the process. I will be personally coaching and mentoring those that join my team. I will be there, holding your hand and guiding you every step of the way. You will become more resilient, confident, focused, clear, happy, healthy and abundant because of this. This is not just about business, this is so much more. You will become a leader. You will create a business that WILL change lives. You will make a difference. You will get MORE. If, at this point, you are feeling that ‘pull’… maybe full body tingles. Maybe a tug at your […] Read more

New ventures. Teaming up. Being a #girlboss

New ventures. Teaming up. Being a #girlboss

Posted March 08, 2016

New ventures. Teaming up. Being a #girlboss… Over the last few weeks my beautiful Soleil’s first birthday has consumed alot of my energy! What a milestone. I wasn’t expecting to feel so overwhelmed, emotional, reflective and torn – yes I love watching her grow, explore, expand in mind-body-soul. But I also realise now how fleeting every moment is and that this little being is embarking on her own journey and I am truly her guide and one day will have to set her free. For now I’m holding on tight, but her first birthday has really stirred up alot. More than I can say right now. One thing it has raised is the question of who I want to be – to her, and to my family. What kind of mother do I want her to be raised by? What kind of woman do I want her to witness and learn from? And what has been clanging withing me loudly, clearly is this… I want my daughter to be strong, independent, to take ownership of her life. To be part of something great. To create greatness. To call the shots and not be a follower. To have freedom and make her own rules. To take risks. To collaborate and make beauty, spread love, share light and help others. To be her own #girlboss and follow her heart. Which means I need to embody and be all of these. To lead by example. To influence through inspiration. We learn from what we witness, what we soak up via osmosis. Not just what we are ‘told’ to do or think or be. So THIS is my focus right now. I’m taking risks. I’m embarking on a new journey and I’m choosing to collaborate, team up and spread light and love in an even more conscious and dedicated way. I’m sinking my teeth into a new business venture – one that is creating MORE in my life and will do the same for so many others. More freedom More flexibility More health More wealth More life More opportunity to be the #girlboss, risk taker, collaborator, love + light worker that I want to be and that I want my daughter to witness and experience (and become if it so calls her too!) I’ve teamed up with an exciting wellness company and I am now part of a team – which feels so good after being a solo entrepreneur for years now, and I’m building my own kick-ass team who are also hungry for MORE. To have found something that is in alignment with my values around health and wellness and that allows me flexibility, independence, freedom and so much more.. well I feel like the cat that got the cream! (P.S If you are intrigued by this and want to create your own successful independent biz, be part of a team and make a difference to the health and wellness of others shoot me an email and let’s chat! hello@claireobeid.com) ++ Yes this is all happening around the rest of life – coaching, running a home, managing a super active 1 year old, maintaining my health, moving my body. It’s FULL plate right now. But it feels good… It feels amazing to have that buzz of life, of growth, of connection and new adventures throbbing in my veins. My heart is saying a BIG yes to all of it. And I’m so grateful to the little sun beam that is my daughter for inspiring this insatiable appetite for MORE. Wishing you that same electric feeling that LIFE gives you when you take a big old tasty bite. love + light, Claire x Read more

Feeling bound at the heart to all beings

Feeling bound at the heart to all beings

Posted February 11, 2016

So you are probably aware of the fact that I am NOT a ‘mummy blogger’. I’m not interested in sharing with you about how to best get your baby into a routine. Or what solids to start them on first (although feel free to ask if you need some guidance). What I am interested in doing is – just as I was doing before – sharing with you the profound experiences, emotions and honest ‘reflections’ on this crazy-ass journey. That’s my bag. Authentically offering up myself, my own learnings and my take on it all. Recently, I’ve found myself giving a shit more often. For my non-Australian readers the phrase ‘giving a shit’ basically implies that one cares about something. I know, I know… we have strange colloquialisms! Let me explain. I’ve always cared about others. It’s in my nature, but I’ve always been able to keep a distance. Just enough space to protect my easily strung-out, highly sensitive, and quick-to-absorb-all-the-bad-stuff self. Now, since carrying, birthing and caring for life on a daily basis that line between me and others is rapidly disintegrating. The space is closing in… and I’m no longer able to disconnect as readily as I once could do. Do I have a problem with this? Surprisingly, no.. not at all. (I will elaborate). Is this making it harder to manage my sensitive, empathetic little being? Ohh, yep. Being Bound At The Heart: It’s not just to other mamas or papas. It’s not just to children. It’s to everyone. This strong sense of feeling bound – heart to heart – to all beings, especially when there is suffering and sadness, pain and trauma. And even moreso when there is joy and lightness. I feel called to connect and say “I’m here. I love you. It’s not OK right now, but I’m here” when I know someone close to me who is doing it tough. I feel what they feel. I GET it. I get the struggle and that raw feeling of being shattered. I feel called to celebrate and share in the joy and love, and lightness that someone might be experiencing. Even if it’s just to say – YES! You so deserve that. As my beautiful friend penned it; an unspoken kinship. We are all one. Souls experiencing a human existence, all one from the same Divine Source. We might believe we are sunbeams that a separate, but we are all beams from the same sun. We are the sun. It is this ‘ONENESS‘ that I am starting to feel and experience more often. It is this oneness that is disintegrating that space between ‘them’ and ‘me’… It is this oneness that is connecting me to others in their struggle and their success. Hardship and happiness. Pain and peace. ++ Every being is someone’s child. Every soul has lived a thousand lives and carries a thousand stories. Everyone has a mother, or father, somewhere. Everyone is human – flawed and perfectly perfect all at the same time. Everyone carries baggage and scars and sorrow. It’s because of this commonality that I can’t help but feel bound at the heart to all beings. And although it means my sensitive self, with a tendency towards anxiety and stress, has to work harder to not carry the heaviness of others hardship…and to feel without feeling the burden of it all, I wouldn’t wish it away. It makes me feel more alive to this experience of life. More sensitive to the needs of my own daughter and husband. More aware of my client’s inner voice. More compassion, forgiveness and understanding. My soul chose this lifetime, this body, this family, this experience for a reason. I am grateful that it has at this age when the world is waking up. And a huge part of that ‘reawakening’ is to connect more deeply to our human experience and all of humanity. For me, right now, this is how that reawakening is unfolding – by feeling bound at the heart to all beings. ++ Maybe for you it’s unfolding in a different way, but that connect, if you let it wants to and will grow. We live so separately, so distant. Yes the online world brings us together, but it also gives us the excuse to not connect from the heart as much. Becoming a mother has highlighted to me that we used to do this parenting thing well – raising our children within a tribe, sharing the hardships and the joy – but today we tend to ‘go it alone’. I’m a sucker for punishment. Often thinking I have to get through my life without asking for help or without voicing my fears and concerns. It is this ‘bound’ feeling that is changing that. As I reach out to others I am feeling, more and more, that I’m meant to check in with them, and in doing so, allowing my self to be checked on – to be cared for, loved, held. After all… at the end of our days isn’t it that the love, the struggles, the joys, the wins, the challenges are all better experienced when shared with another soul? Isn’t that heart-to-heart connect what this life is all about? If not, then what else is there? Just meaningless experiences – empty, heartless, lacking in soul. ++ So from my heart to yours. I feel you. I see you. I love you. Claire x Read more

Why I’m not going to reflect on 2015

Why I’m not going to reflect on 2015

Posted January 12, 2016

I haven’t felt compelled to review all that has unfolded in 2015. That’s because I can summarise it in one word. BABY. For the first two months of the year I was barefoot, blissed out and pregnant. Spending my days floating in the ocean, gazing in awe at the sun dazzling on the waves, communing with the little soul growing within, and generally feeling overwhelmed with gratitude. For life. For this precious, oh-so-sacred time and for my body and the miracle it was creating. Then, the birth happened. Then Soleil, in dramatic fashion, entered our world. And it was like a cataclysmic event occurred that literally turned the earth upside down and instantly shook us to the core. It’s been equal parts challenging, joyous, heartbreaking, backbreaking, love-soaked, laughter filled, mind-blowing, exhausting, confusing, guilt-ridden, messy, humbling, testing, and tearful. And truthfully, I could write 1000 adjectives to describe the experience but it would never and can never give you a clear enough snapshot into the life-altering experience that is motherhood/parenthood. But despite the fact that this has been the toughest yet most rewarding assignment of my life (to date) I don’t want to review it. Actually, I mean to say, I don’t NEED to review it. I don’t need to reflect too much, ponder for hours. Or C\come to any understanding, at all, really. You want to know why (of course you do!) right? It’s because of this one incredible lesson that Soleil, motherhood, pregnancy and birth have taught me (sometimes quite forcefully)… There is only one moment that matters. And within that moment you have the possibility of fully experiencing what is on offer – be it complete and utter despair, zombie-like exhaustion, overwhelming heart-explosive love, sheer indifference, emotional disconnection…. Whatever it is… it is THERE for that moment. In that one instant you can feel it, experience it, be IN IT. Fully, completely, honestly, vulnerably. You can gauge and learn from it, spontaneously, you can perhaps reflect on it later – take stock of the lesson you were just bitch-slapped with. Ultimately it’s in the experiencing of it – the living it – that truly counts. Once it’s done. It’s done. Try and grow from it. Try and make different choices if they didn’t work for you. Try and stay true to the journey by choosing ultimate surrender. But the moment has passed, let it go now. Don’t cling. Don’t over-think it. Don’t tear it to pieces and over analyse.  Soleil doesn’t dwell on anything. She falls, hits her head, cries. 30 seconds later as soon as the pain has gone, so has her attachment to the experience. Finished. That moment is done and therefore she is no longer in it. She’s in the next moment – perhaps playing joyful, cuddling, discovering. Just be here now. And now be here. And here. here, again. With a little baby at the centre of your universe there really isn’t much time to ponder and reflect (or brush your hair, drink a glass of water…) nor is there much need to. Because if you are truly honouring the moment as a baby forces you to do (and as I am trying to do!), then you are truly in the flow of life, and the past/future trip-out is irrelevant and meaningless. ++ Now here’s where I contradict myself. I love to journal. I also finding reflecting, pondering and analysing very easy to do. It comes naturally to me. So I’m not saying I NEVER DO THIS. In fact, I journal almost daily. I internally run a quick review, almost daily. But as of late, I’m no longer getting hung up in that space of trying to gain clarity on what’s been and gone, anymore. I am no longer caught in the web of ‘what ifs’ or the net of disappointments. Nor do I pull apart and analyse what I did that I can improve on. I water down the intensity of ‘trying’ to do more, be more, perfect and polish. Instead, I might gently review, or touch on a lesson, or sit with an insight. Jot down some heart-felt intentions, desires and dreams. And then I offer up a prayer – to the divine source, to the universal energy that we are all part of, to my own guides and angels, to all mothers from all time… I ask for love I ask for foresight I ask for patience I ask for support I ask for light And I offer up my weighty concerns, and my fears and disappointments and my insecurities in the hands of my higher self and ask HER to take over. I ask her to carry my intentions for the year, to choose my soulful goals, to take my lessons and learnings and the rights/wrongs from the year that was and place them into the well of my inner wisdom, so that I may honour those experiences. I place complete trust in HER wisdom and inner knowing…. with the understanding and agreement that she will take me down the path best for my own soul growth. Who knows if this way of doing this will sustain me in the future. Right now I have the perfect cocktail of mama-brain, 10 months sleep deprivation and a baby demanding my everything to ensure that any other way of starting the new year/planning/reviewing would just not be possible. But I do hope that if at some point I feel called to do this differently again that I remember the pleasure and the freedom in simply letting the moment be, and letting it be the ultimate ruler in my life. ++ I’m no expert on this mama-journey. But what I can do is choose to keep my heart and mind open to what it is teaching me. So far, this has been and I know will continue to be my biggest spiritual awakening ever. It’s not tingly, and other-worldy. There are rarely those ‘divinely touched’ moments. It’s usually got me covered in mango, all sorts of […] Read more

How do you NOT want to feel this year?

How do you NOT want to feel this year?

Posted January 04, 2016

How do you NOT want to feel this year? Happiest new year to you. I’ve been off the grid a little over the xmas/ny break… which wasn’t my intention. You know I had all these awesome things I want to share with you. Such as my mini yoga video on ‘How to beat the Christmas Bloat’ But as life would have it, the last two weeks have been my toughest yet. In fact, Christmas didn’t even happen for our little family. We were all struck down with gastro, fevers and lots of other exhausting things that little babies throw in the mix. Such is life! So here I am today, and we are five days into the new year. Usually I spend a few days to a couple of weeks working through my feelings – desires, intentions, reflections, ponderings – to align myself to the year ahead. I don’t have nearly as much time to delve into this annual exercise as I’d like to, but I do have one fail safe way to do this – to drill down into my soul and get the guidance I need. And I share this fail safe way in an archived video I did this time, two years ago. In this video I guide you through the super simple task of discovering your own core desired feelings – thanks to Danielle LaPorte + her Desire Map – from a slightly different perspective. The perspective from the SHADOW. From what might seem to be ‘the negative’ perspective. And that is to ask your soul: “What do I NOT want to feel this year”… Sometimes I struggle to really pinpoint my core desired feelings, but when I look at what I don’t want to feel (relive, experience, push through) then I often directly hit on how I DO want to feel. Want to learn how to do this? CLICK HERE to watch this ‘olden-but-golden” video blog from 2014. How do I not want to feel? Bitter. Frustrated. Like the victim. Over it. Dark. Instead I want to feel: Surrendered. Present. Appreciative. Grateful. In it. Light. Expansive. (I’m such a wordy person I could GO on forever…) Have a watch of it yourself and then get going on figuring out your feelings to guide and light the way for #Sweet2016! Feel free to hit send and tell me how you don’t (and DO) want to feel this year. ++ Oh and when I mention The Freedom Project in this video, although there isn’t a new round starting soon, it is always OPEN for business. Meaning – you can start at anytime. So check it out! ++ love + light, Claire xx Read more

Manifesting in the new year

Manifesting in the new year

Posted January 03, 2016

Manifesting is the buzz word at the moment, isn’t it? It’s the latest craze and personally, I’m all for it. Why the hell not – I mean, the word is empowering, it’s about creation, isn’t it? And why shouldn’t we be creating the life that we want? To me, manifesting is about bringing something (experience, person, attitude, situation) to the forefront – shining a light on your dreams, amplifying your desires and getting shiny-diamond clear. I say ‘forefront’ because what you truly desire, that is for your own growth, already exists… it’s just hanging out in the shadows, waiting to be called forth. It can only be called forth through you – your WILL. Nothing will ever happen without your permission. Manifesting is about realising that within you is the ultimate resource (your own vibrational energy) for attracting what you wan, as soon as you are ready, willing and able. This time of year with intentions and soulful goals flying around, the energy is almost electrified. Most of the yoga classes I am teaching at the moment are packed – a roomful of yogis with hopeful dreams of bendy asana, quiet minds and devoted practice. The point is, this time of year is the right time to really tap into the power of manifestation. It’s not rocket science, but it does take focused awareness and loving attention. In today’s VLOG I guide you through manifestation. A few things I’d like to highlight for you: I share with you what I used to think about manifesting I talk about the energy within us and how this is integral to getting what we want I talk through why (real) manifesting has to be in alignment with your truth, not your surface level desires. I talk about how you already have what you want + how lack perpetuates lack I share a personal example of how I am harnessing the power of manifestation right now I offer up some simple examples of how to manifest When you’ve finished watching the vlog I’d love to hear how YOU manifest or how you are planning on creating + attracting what your soul desires this year?  Share below in the comments! ++ So, you want to manifest a beautiful life?
