The Power of Intention


Unlimited Capacity and Choices

‘I am unlimited in my capacity to choose how I think, feel and experience my life’.

This is such a powerful affirmation. When you set your intention with these words, you’re choosing to take the reins of your life.

Your abundance of thoughts & emotions have the capacity to completely free you or enslave you. The choice is yours.

For example; something happens beyond your control, say you’re caught up in a traffic jam. Now, how do you choose to deal with this situation?

Do you react spontaneously without thought or care? Or do you make a conscious decision to respond in a way that’s more mindful and consciously aware?..


You always have a choice.

So, if you choose to take the mindful approach, maybe you’ll bring your focus of attention to be fully in the present. Being aware of the rhythm of your breathing, so as not to allow your thoughts and feelings to control you.

Or, instead do you allow yourself to Read more

The ‘Domestic Violence’ label

 How the ‘domestic violence’ label changed my life

What ‘labels’ do you ascribe to yourself?


Many people don’t consider how they see themselves or their situation. But, if you begin to unpick the layers of labels what’s left?  How do you decide to define who you are or what your situation is?

Many years ago, I had an ‘epiphany’, it was one of a number of ‘light-bulb’ moments I’ve since had in my life. The light was very clearly shining on what I now realise to be Read more

Welcoming the month of love

Hello Soul Travellers,

Becoming a conduit of love



Welcoming the month of love into the heart, requires us to have self-love and self-care. If we can’t do that for ourselves how can we do that for others?

It has always seemed a strange coincidence that February – while it heralds in the energy of love, is also the shortest month of the year.  It’s as if loving is a luxury that must be rationed. But, nothing could be further from the truth! When we Read more

Soul shift and grow through life!

Just a little reminder to keep on moving forward, take a ‘soul shift’ and grow through life. No matter what challenges may happen in your life you CAN overcome them!

For me, the past few years have seen some deeply personal transformations occurring in my life. Some of which were very sadly expected, the great loss of both my parents from cancer will be forever a pivotal point in my life. The effects of such a deeply profound and life changing event can never be predicted or planned for, especially when other experiences Read more

Why You Need a Happiness Quota


My mission the past few years has been to empower people to reclaim their ‘happiness quota’. Working as a holistic lifestyle coach, I’ve had the great privilege of coaching people towards greater happiness in their lives. I’ve witnessed how being happy is vital for achieving personal growth and potential. Happiness brings with it; greater freedom of expression, a natural spontaneity and innate joy and allows us to become more productive, creative and inspired soul’s.

Emotional, psychological and spiritual wellbeing all depend on the state of mind we hold. In my coaching practice, many client’s experienced unhappiness in some or other of these areas; personal relationships, careers, health, finances, emotional health, physical health or even where they lived. Happiness or rather a feeling of unhappiness was always sadly a factor in their situation. So, if you’re reading this article and you resonate with it, how can you  bring the happy back into your everyday life and finally lead a life that’s joyful and inspired?

Midlife Transition


Whatever life transition is happening for you right now, there’s no doubt that some transition’s can be painful and other’s can make us STOP and re-evaluate what’s important in life. But, by allowing ourselves to grow through the changes we can learn a great deal about ourselves from these experiences. One such transition this year, a milestone birthday (not saying which one, mind!) happened to me.

Following a ‘mid-life review’ I asked myself these four simple questions:

  1. What is my true soul’s calling?
  2. What can I do to grow into my soul purpose?
  3. How soon do I want these changes to happen?
  4. How will I know when I’ve reached my goals?

Allow yourself the space and time to reflect and to carefully consider what you want from life. Maybe do what I did, go for walks, write (my passion and joy) listen to soothing music for the soul and above all have FUN!   Give yourself permission to become full of child like wonder once again. It’s through writing that I am able to visualise what my dream life consists of. Never dismiss any idea that pops into your mind and NEVER EVER allowed  yourself to think anything is unachievable. A transition is a gift from the Universe, a Divinely timed opportunity for us to become the best versions of ourselves that we can be.

So, if you’re growing through a life transition a this point in your life, ask yourself; “What’s my true soul calling?”. Begin a catalyst of transformation and embrace the changes your transition brings. Transition’s are the crossroads of change, they are the perfect opportunity to decide in which direction we want to head!
