8 Ways to REALIGN when you’re feeling lost

8 Ways to REALIGN when you’re feeling lost

Posted February 03, 2017

8 Ways to REALIGN when you’re feeling lost Gosh there is so much rattling around in my head. Are you feeling the same? Since my 35th birthday and the White Light Healing Retreat I did last weekend (OH and the divine New Moon workshop with Amy Taylor Kabbaz) there is a jungle of ideas, feelings, fears, thoughts taking up my mental white space. It’s good, sort of. I’m writing and brainstorming and getting these ideas down – there’s so much I want to do and create and share (agh, MORE time please!) And new thoughts keep coming to me; P.s some of these ideas include bringing back The 21 Days of Meditation Project – remember that goodie?! But for now… Shhhh! I’m seeing more live workshops. I’m feeling into powerful online masterclasses. I’m tuning into more words, writing, storytelling. However, and truthfully, the state of the world and the way we abuse its people and animals and mama earth has been weighing on me. Deeply. (I rewatched The Cove AND Blackfish this week – my ‘activist’ aquarian heart clearly wanted to be front and centre this week). Many tears have been shed this week.  A lot of pain has been felt. A huge disconnection and discontentment yet at the same time a massive PULL to be more IN the world. Integral to raising its vibration and participating in its mass healing. Which is why there is this bizarre jungle mess in my mind and heart. This PUSH-PULL between feeling so much pain Vs DEEP gratitude Vs feeling called to create and do my (somewhat small) part in raising the vibrations through love, consciousness and personal healing. And underneath that is my humble desire to just be a mama and hold space for my Soleil in this world. (Oh and did I mention time? Where is it? How do I get more of it? There are never enough hours in the day, are there!) ++ Scatterbrain much?! Yep… that’s how I’m feeling. So I do what I always do – and I’m sharing these with you today just incase you are feeling the same. 8 ways to realign when you’re feeling lost: 1) I reach out to my soul-sisters.  I literally ask for help. I ask for their shoulder to lean on and cry on. I express my feelings and I soak up their wisdom. My vulnerability opens me up to receiving the love, guidance and wisdom that my soul needs. But it also opens the conversation up to others who need space to express their struggles and truths too. So in essence we start to hold circle and carry each other through. It’s life changing. 2) I journal the junk out of the head.  Over and over and over. I story-tell my way through the jungle. I pull down the feelings and put them to paper. I navigate through the weeds of twisted thoughts and find insight, clarity, direction. 3) I make a plan. When it comes to creative ideas I jot them down, I feel into what i’m called to action, now and then I start noting down next steps. Know this though, I might NOT action them straight away. Sometimes I still just need to percolate in those feelings before I take the inspired action necessary 4) I meditate like a mofo. Seriously, I meditate like my sanity depends on it. Because it does, and my health too. I focus on grounding, lower chakra meditations. Or forgiveness + compassion meditations. Or love and presence. Or whatever the hell feels right, but I do it. Daily. Why? Because I need the energetic support. I need to heal. I need to still be a mama and a coach and a team leader. I still need to cook dinner and function. Life still happens despite the chaotic dance and flurry of BIG emotions that are happening. And meditation allows me to find space, to breathe and to BE. Want to get your hands on some of my meditations? Visit my SHOP to see my meditation albums. Oh and Mamas head here for your own dedicated meditation membership.  5) I move my body. I use my body as vehicle to hold, honour and then release whatever it is that must go. Lots of Kundalini Yoga Kriyas. I get my heart rate. And then I slowly, stretch and breath. Just embodying it all. 6) I trust and hold faith.  Everything passes. It all shifts and unfurls into something new. An upleveling perhaps? The light of new lessons. A burst of energy, clarity, joy. If I stay in faith, then I don’t spiral into victim-mode, or worse still FUTILITY. 7) I eat even cleaner. Although my head might say, Oh go on, EAT ALL THE COOKIES. I know my higher self and my body wants to keep it clean. So I honour that. Processed, high-sugar food actually creates an energetic and mental fog that clouds my truth, my judgement and my ability to move through the jungle with a little more ease. And that also means beautiful, powerful supplements and super foods.  8) I harness mother nature. I visit the ocean. Ground my feet into the earth. Get whipped about with invigorating ocean air. I walk through parks and take my shoes off. I burn essential oils at home. ++ I know none of this is NEW. I never promised ground-breaking (ha!) I offer this to you, though, as a gentle reminder that if you are ever lost in the fog or the jungle of your mind and you can’t make sense of it all just yet, then know you have the power to consciously support yourself! One last BONUS point: Gratitude. Fill your heart and mind with prayer and gratefulness for all that you do have. All that you can do. All that you are. From the micro to the macro. Dose up on gratitude. love + light, Claire xx Read more

Do you want to feel Golden?

Do you want to feel Golden?

Posted January 10, 2017

Feeling GOLDEN Last time I checked in with you the new year had JUST ticked over. It’s crazy how quickly we all get sucked back into the vortext of life – the busy-ness, the lists, the stressors, the plans. Life is just so FULL. (Beautifully, gratefully full) I am busily working away here in the background – new coaching programs and more. Make sure you keep reading till the end as I have something SUPER exciting coming your way soon. Thankfully the balmy, sticky summer (on this side of the hemisphere at least) is keeping me outside and in the ocean daily. Resetting on the daily. Speaking of summer and the ocean, one of my most favourite things ever is the way the sun shines on the ocean – sparkly, playful light dancing on the waves. Golden sparks of crystalline light. This light makes me smile from ear-to-ear. ++ A few years back when I did a powerful journey into my Chakra 8 I discovered the 12 essences of my soul (we all have them – they just differ from person to person). In every meditaiton session I would do, going into my Chakra 8 I would find myself in a temple FLOODED with Golden Light. It was only until discussing this with my Spiritual Mentor, Belinda Davidson that I came to understand something very important. The Golden Light is one of my 12 essences. WOW. Now, I’m not 100% certain what this actually means and how I embody it fully. OR how it differs from the White Light (it feels very different) but I do know that FEELING GOLDEN is at the centre of it. Definition; Golden Glowing vitality; radiant, radiance. Full of happiness, prosperity or vigour: golden hours; a golden era. Richly soft and smooth. Bright, metallic, lustrous FEELING GOLDEN So it shouldn’t come as a surprise when I tell you that GOLDEN is one of my core desired feelings. I’m often asking myself – how can I feel more ‘golden’ in this moment, day, week… this precious LIFE. It’s also a feeling that resides at the core of my work – as a coach, leader and guide. I want my clients and team members to feel GOLDEN to and I’ll do what I can to help them reach for that bright, inner radiance. How do we feel GOLDEN then? How do we reach for what is seemingly blindingly bright and almost impossible to grasp? (Btw, it’s not, we just have to do the consistent, loving work). This is how we do it: Regular stillness and reflection Powerful practices to realign and reingite your Mind, Body and Soul Self-study and commitment to personal growth This 2017 I have a bunch of beautiful offerings coming your way to support you in feeling GOLDEN. Right now I have a SHOP full of meditation albums and ebooks to help guide back to yourself. I have reopened my coaching schedule (which is almost FULL) Om Mama Love is supporting mamas to find the GOLD in this season of life they are in And my Roadmap to Happy Online Group Immersion is completely focused on giving you the tools to reach for your version of ‘GOLDEN’ If you are ready to feel golden I invite you to ask this question; “What do I need to feel bright, vital, radiant, happy and prosperous”… And if I can help you get there in anyway let me know! (Check out the above links, maybe something there just JUMPS out at you!) ++ 30 Days of You! Before I leave you I have one last thing (and very special thing) to share with you. I’ll be dropping into your inbox again very soon, in the next few days to share an incredible 30 Day program that will definitely help you to go for GOLD. Myself and a team of women (who I’m sure you know) have put together an amazing 30 day challenge (LOADED up with a ridiculous bundle of goodiess too) to give you a fresh new start and to realign and reignite your mind, spirit, body and soul. I’ve NEVER done anything like this before and I’m literally itching to get this out to you. So please keep a look out that – It’ll be with you VERY soon. I hope you join us for a powerful, love-filled and life-changing month. Love and (golden) light, Claire Read more

Manifesting in the new year + Get your roadmap to happy

Manifesting in the new year + Get your roadmap to happy

Posted January 03, 2017

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? Let me ask you this…do you have your roadmap to happy? How will you navigate towards joy and balance in Mind-Body-Soul? Do you feel equipped to map out your pathway to a year of joy, balance, happiness, success? Do you have the tools you need? Are you ready to take the inspired action to create happiness? This year I am doing something new and oh-so juicy and special. Starting early February, I’ll be holding circle in an intimate group coaching program: Your Roadmap to Happy: 10 Week Online Group Immersion into your Mind-Body-Soul I want to work with YOU, specifically on arming you up with the right tools and knowledge to create your ROADMAP TO HAPPINESS – in Mind, Body and Soul.

Endings and Beginnings: Reflecting on 2016 before entering 2017

Endings and Beginnings: Reflecting on 2016 before entering 2017

Posted December 18, 2016

Here I am…tapping away on my laptop. It’s almost dark and I’m sitting here on my bed with only a Himalayan Salt Lamp on; casting a warm, womb-like glow across the room. Big fat wet tears rolling down my face, pooling at my lips, soaking back into my skin. I can barely see through these tears…Yet I knew I had to open up my laptop and write. All week I’ve been feeling this bubbling up of emotion. The inner cauldron of all my truths, thoughts, feelings and experiences amping up from a slow, gentle simmer to the raise-the-lid kinda boil. The kind of boil that will inevitably spill over into a watery mess if I don’t turn my gaze to and respond quickly enough. And sure enough, despite the sign-posts all week the latter has happened. I didn’t have the space and time to ‘go there’ – you know, to cast my attention to that simmering feeling. So here I am… here I am a watery, blubbery mess. [Side note: oh wow, does it feels good to FEEL like this. To feel vulnerable and overwhelmed with emotion. It makes me feel alive and connected and tapped in – always has] The things that have set me off all week – tender moments between baby and dada. A random act of kindness from a stranger in the street. A generous exchange. Watching a mama hug her injured child in Aleppo. Hugging my dear friend and saying Merry Christmas – have all pointed to connection, the power of the tribe, gratitude and the simplicity of love. Powerful, universal sorta stuff. But what set off this moment, right now, the avalanche of tears and the impossible-to-contain soul speak in the form of FEELING? My nanny just wrote to me to say she was no longer able to work with us (due her own personal career goals). #firstworldproblems Then IT all just hit me. This year has been so challenging and yet so unbelievably beautiful. (Side note: I had originally written “so fucking hard” but perspective whacked me in the face and I had to dial it back!) I’ve created so much. I’ve barely slept. I’ve nagged and argued about nonsensical shit with my sleep deprived husband. I’ve started a new business. I’ve coached divine women through their blocks and fears. I consciously worked on healing myself energetically, emotionally, physically, mentally. I’ve done things I never thought I would, or could. I said YES without reason, just a feeling. I’ve grown a team and watched them grow too. I’ve learned that I don’t know what it means to be a leader. I’ve decided to lead with love and serve wholeheartedly. I’ve felt so much mama-guilt. I’ve felt so much mama joy, love, elation. I’ve faced so many fears, slowly. I’ve watched parts of me fall away and dissolve. I’ve surrendered. Over and over and over again. I’ve found my feminine power – fierce warrior mama within. I’ve fallen in love with parts of me I didn’t notice before. I’ve juggled coaching, creativity, business around tantrums and toddler tactics. I’ve stared at my forever changed body and swung from love, to admiration to disgust and back to love. I’ve stared at my forever guy and cried tears of gratitude for him minutes after crying tears at frustration over him. I’ve meditated. Daily. Committed to stillness, daily. I’ve moved and stretched and breathed. I’ve set goals and failed at them, and reset them over and over until I nailed it. I’ve held my baby sick and feverish feeling equal parts scared and supremely blessed. I’ve failed at being the perfect mama/wife so many times – forgetting to cook dinner, turning the TV on too many times, letting my frustration take the driver seat. I rocked motherhood too… often. I’ve battled to stay in my centre, to be calm, to stay strong when sometimes it all just felt too much. I’ve watched my dad getting older, weaker, sicker. I’ve felt the love and support my mother always delivers. I’ve cried tears of happiness watching my little girl play with her cousins, something I never had. I discovered some shit about myself I’m grateful I can now see, but that hurt to look at. I raged. I cried. I fell apart. I cracked. I put myself back together and said ‘Let’s DO this’. I prayed many times for relief and peace. And then accepted when I didn’t get it. I found a circle, a sisterhood, a tribe where we honour shame, vulnerability, joy, success and dreams. Like I said, a really big, hard, beautiful, FULL, messy year. ++ I am a deeply changed woman. Motherhood… life, it’s eroded the old me and reshaped me much faster than any other experience has in my life. I feel more than I’ve ever felt. I think more than I have ever. I worry more. Pray more. Strive and thrive more. I fail more. I’m more considered and conscious. I dig deeper than I ever have and insist on MORE from the universe. I love more than I thought was possible. I care about people, this earth. And yet with all of that I also feel more overwhelmed, futile, and held back than I ever have. My eyes are more open and so is my heart. EVERYTHING is dialled right up. My desire to create change, my desire to find balance and to help others heal. My desire for abundance and for financial success and stability. My need to hide away and hush the world. My desire to make a difference. My desire for a humble life with my sweet little family. My desire to GO BIG and chase my dreams. I feel all of it….My need to make this life matter, to honour the gift of this life and do it justice. To live up to my soul purpose and to do so with authenticity and love. As I write this there is a small voice in the back of my […] Read more

How resilient are you?

How resilient are you?

Posted November 27, 2016

how resilient are you? It’s been a few weeks now since Om Mama Love launched and I’m feeling all those sweet grateful vibes – as each new mama joins us I get that delightful wash of warmth flood my heart. Knowing that they have chosen to put their self-care needs first and dive into spirituality (done the easy way!) is precisely why I created Om Mama Love. (Scroll down if you don’t know what I’m talking about!) ++ Since the launch I’ve also really loved taking a step out from the ‘creative-cave’. I gave myself permission to switch off from that space and just let it roll-out. That’s what happens when you put in the hard work and attention to detail BEFOREHAND – everything was set-up so I could let my gaze and attention fall elsewhere. Because sometimes, no matter how much we love something (a project, a creation, a person!) we need space away from it. To appreciate it. To switch off from it (or them!). To fall in love with it again. ++ Speaking of handwork, I want to touch on something my beautiful and wise friend Tara Bliss shared on Snapchat (PLEASE follow her if you aren’t already. She is a living, breathing spark of magic). Resilience.  Tenacity. Digging Deep. Following through. Dedication. Commitment. Hard- freaking-work. Why are so many of us adverse to doing it? Why do so many of us quit when it gets tough? Why do we back out when ‘stuff’ is not happening at the speed and energy we expect it to? And who are we to judge as to how it should happen and by when?? Where did we get the idea that GOOD stuff happens only to a few good people AND that it has to ALWAYS be easy and effortless. Get this (here are my disclaimers). 1) Yes, sometimes good stuff does happen easily and effortless – it’s called IN THE FLOW and god it feels good, but that doesn’t mean it’s the ONLY right way. 2) I’m not about glorifying BUSY and hard work to make ourselves feel bigger, inflated, better. No no, this is NOT about that. This is about toughening up a little and digging your heels in when your vision is bigger than the desire to quit. Tara shared in her snapchat that she put in some serious (and still does) hard work in the early days of entrepreneurship. She spoke of how she built her coaching business in a small, hot sweaty room and worked hours chipping away. I know this for a fact; she wouldn’t have loved every moment, nor would it have always been easy. And guess what, THAT IS OK! I know this for a fact because I went through the same thing. Chipping away in a small room (yes, my room was hot and sweat-inducing too! Ha!). ALONE for hours a day trying to figure out this online/marketing/coaching world. No tribe or team to answer my questions. Just a freaking soulful goal insight and a whole lotta passion and drive. And I’m here again now. Juggling two businesses with MULTIPLE layers to them around a toddler, a husband, a home and my own needs. I’m here resiliently and tenaciously (with respect of the moon, my cycle, the ebb and flow of life!) chipping away again. WHY? Why? WHY do we stick it out?…BECAUSE OUR WHY MATTERS. YOUR WHY is the thing that brings you to tears when you tune into it. Or fires you up with an unstoppable drive. If you haven’t tapped into that my love, then no wonder hard work is scary. It a why that is connected to how you want to feel in your life – and if you know what why/that feeling/that goal is going to lead you to a more joyful, content, happy place than that is worth pursuing.  Disclaimer 3) If your goal is buying a house, or saving to travel, or building or empire – the size doesn’t matter, it’s whatever means something to you! And as Tara said in her snaps “Why THE HELL would you quit now??” Just because you can’t see the fruits of your labour born yet doesn’t mean they won’t be. And they sure as hell WON’T be if you quit now – just because it got hard. When it gets hard our ego fires up with the loudest voice possible; “Oh maybe this ISN’T right for you?” “Did you consider you’re not cut out for this?” “Other people will succeed but you won’t?” Better still is when our ego masks itself as our ‘spiritual voice’ saying things like “This intuitively doesn’t feel right anymore” Or “This pathway is not aligned with your truth” Disclaimer 4) YES our inner voice can often say those things and they are spot on. But you’re job is to feel into whether that’s your truth speaking or your ego. Hint: generally, your ego is a much more obvious and intense voice. Our intuition speaks in a subtler language and tends to use signs, symbols, guideposts and sensations. When you follow through, when you CHOOSE RESILIENCE (and flow, and intuition and inspired action) you WILL reach your dreams. You will find that space of abundance, success, and achievement. ++ So here’s my thought; think back to a time when you were resilient – and look at what they created/delivered offered up. When were you your most tenacious, determined self and what fruits did it offer up? As we near the end of 2016 and our minds and hearts steer us towards the dreams, desires, goals and feelings we want to nurture in 2017 ask yourself if you are ready to harness the power of resilience when you need to. love + light, Claire x Read more

Speaking the right love language

Speaking the right love language

Posted October 17, 2016

Speaking the right love language is saving my marriage Ok, so that’s a bit dramatic. We aren’t even close to splitting up, but let’s just say this; if we had let things continue as they were, it would’ve eventually become a slippery slide ride into splitsville. Sleep deprivation. Busy lives. Work pressures. Zero alone time. That is not a good recipe for a happy marriage. And that was a hard fact to face up to considering we’ve always had an effortless, cruisy and love-filled relationship. It’s confusing you know, becoming parents you experience the MOST divine love ever. Filling up on the ecstasy that together we created and birthed a beautiful little being. OUR LOVE DID THAT. Yet, that very same experience is what creates distance. Not by choice, no way. But survival mode kicks in. Things to do. Stuff to create. Responsibilities we never had before. Adjusting to so much change. So after a few weeks of constant niggling, and whinging and more ‘disconnecting’ from each other than I could bare without bursting into tears I said enough. Time for change. One night over dinner I pulled out Gary Chapman’s ‘The Five Love Languages’. A book I’d read and adored years ago. Chris and I had taken the test inside to find out what each other’s main ‘love language was’. I decided we need to revisit that and make a conscious effort to start speaking each other’s language. == So much had changed. What used to be my ‘language’ was no more. The same for him. We’d evolved and our needs had too. He desired more quality time and I needed words of ‘affirmation’ (something I’d never needed before). He wanted more one-on-one time with me to laugh and talk. I needed to hear compassionate words of love and support, and even encouragement. ++ Overnight things have changed. We are so aware. Conscious. Engaged. Reconnected. We even went on a date. Woah. We have both placed each other front and centre. Such a small shift, such a huge impact. == So here I am re-inspired. Falling in love again. Feeling empowered that I can make a positive impact and take inspired action for more LOVE, CONNECTION and JOY. Maybe this will inspire you to reach for the same? love + light Claire Read more
