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

THE PHOENIX HAS RISEN

THE PHOENIX HAS RISEN

Posted February 07, 2012

Hello! Thanks for your patience… I have been MIA. And I can’t promise it won’t happen again. Life is running on high-speed right now as I transition into my new life. But here I am and I wanted to share something with you before the joy of it slowly wears off.Recently I attended The Phoenix Weekend…You know the Phoenix right? No? Here, let Wiki do the talking: A phoenix is a mythical bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends. It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again.  So, you can imagine then that this weekend, held on the first weekend of February, was all about the rebirth of a new year, new life from the ashes of the year gone by. It was by far the most magical way to ice this year, to feel a connection to like-minded people and to enter my 30s doing the things I love.The Phoenix Weekend was created by Angel and Matt Singmin, two local Sydney peeps who created Future Sound of Yoga. This duo know their music, they know yoga and they know how to create a connected, inspiring experience.The weekend is all about meditation, music, dancing, yoga, learning, sharing and experiencing. The ‘line-up’ of international yoga teachers absolutely blew my mind. I was able to experience the beautiful Vinyasa flow of Katy Appleton, which literally inspired a sense of power yet vulnerability. The amazing Anna Phillips encouraged me to consider moving with mindfulness through my yoga practice, despite knowing it by rote. Gwyn Williams taught us the art of acro yoga and finally, the infamous Mark Whitwell changed the way I look upon ‘yoga’. Daphne Tse, folk and acoustic singer lead a kirtan that dived so deep inside that I was flooded with tears and an overwhelming sense of connection to the people I love most in my life – all through her words and her voice. A mixture of sadness and elation. All in the same breath. She truly took me by surprise.I relished in delicious yoga nidra sessions (psychic sleep meditation), delicious food and of course a future sound of yoga session – we’re talking dress-ups and raving like it’s 1999 again. Being a volunteer at the weekend also meant that I was able to spend time with other yoga teachers. We chatted about shared experiences and just unashamedly got to be ourselves, in our yogi skin, without having to censor our thoughts and feelings. Let me tell you, we made the youtube clip ‘shit yogis say‘ pale in comparison! Pretty unbelievable stuff for one little weekend away huh? It’s kind of hard to put down in words just how awesome this experience was… just trust me on this, it was incredible.I wanted to share this with you so you can diarise it for next year. It’s well worth the wait.But also I wanted to hopefully inspire you to go and do something that you love, share it with other people and do it just because you can. No analysing, no reasoning, just put yourself out there and experience! Despite all the new and interesting things I learnt over the weekend, the main thing that has stuck with me is that living today with passion is all that matters. The now. Like the Phoenix who sheds its past life and is reborn new, we should do the same each and everyday…Signing off with an exhale.Pause. Listen. Live.Cx  Read more
