Sleep Health

Lack of quality sleep increases the effects of aging… Whereas, 1 night of quality sleep can improve your ability to learn new motor skills by up to 20% Sleep plays a huge role in our overall health. There’s lots of science out there that shows us this but the experts don’t all agree on what this means.   Some say you need 8 hours of sleep. Others say it’s more about the times you’re asleep (eg; 10 pm – 6 am) and others say you can get away with as little as 4 hours of sleep a night as long … Read More

Life Changing Moments

Life-Changing Moments   19 years ago my boy took his last breath. Last Wednesday marked the 19th year of life AB (after Braith). The pivotal moment of the release of the first Melinda and the birth of the second. The significant moment to choose to be more. Some people look at you like you shouldn’t still be banging on about it 19 years later.  It’s only because they don’t understand. And that’s ok. This huge loss created the biggest shift in my life. I shared with my family last Wednesday, as we set free his Iris in the place of … Read More

To Those Who Inspire You…

The world is full of miracles, everyday interventions, and guidance for us to flow effortlessly along our path to becoming ourselves.   Post hospital hasn’t been a smooth road to health. Far from it. It’s been a roller coaster with plenty of ups and downs as well as moments of feeling suspended upside down.   I can’t ever share enough how important signs can be. Lifesaving really.   Two weeks ago, I was driving home from my psychiatrist appointment back in the hospital that housed me for three weeks. I felt hopeless in that moment as we had discussed the … Read More

The Three Minds

Your Three Minds There’s a part of your mind, one’s designed to protect,  Another to expand and be creative And the other taps into your soul, Allowing you to make decisions in your life that align with your highest self.   One of the most important things for self development, I believe, is to understand your three minds. When we centre our decisions on this knowledge, we can cut the drama, avoid staying in la la land with new ideas and keep ourselves in line with our souls urges for this lifetime. It’s the best way to become clear fast. … Read More

Your Wounds Are Where The Light Enters

As the white noise begins to slow, the gentle whispers of the Universe are amplified. She never forces, screams, and shouts. It’s always up to us to find stillness and let her speak.   I spent many months in the darkness. A place I needed to be, to unravel the heartache and let the grief and sense of loss run its course. Not only the loss of life of one of our children, but the loss of our family as we knew it. The loss of my own son in some sense, as I retrained myself to accept our unusual … Read More

Do Dark Thoughts Ever Go Away?

Do Dark Thoughts Ever Go Away?? Once your mind has taken the leap and plunged into the darkest part of you,  Can you ever get to a point that you no longer go there when you feel hopeless?   I remember thirteen years ago, Oska was a two year old and really living up the reputation two-year olds have with constant tantrums and displaying his ODD in a battle for control.   Banjo was a sleepless one year old, 4am was the start to his day and once he wanted another nap at 6am, Oska would wake ready for his … Read More

Am I Getting Old??

Am I Getting Old, Or are we women dancing dangerously  with becoming nothing more than pretty ornaments  Again?? Girls, I believe with all my heart, that if you’re older self (if she evolves) could speak to you now she would say something similar to this;   You’re wasting precious moments in time by trying to get the perfect photo. You went to beautiful places and posed, you weren’t present.  You have so much to give, so much spiritual and emotional intelligence that’s needed RIGHT NOW, please share this. Not your fake tanned arse.  Be different. Just because your friends are … Read More

Suffering Ends When The Gratitude Begins

Here’s a story about a friend of mine He lives in South Africa and called me yesterday He’s not had the best luck lately. Here’s Bobs story, Once upon a time there was a successful and kind man named Bob. Bob was always in a rush. Even when there was no rush. He created urgency everywhere he went. He was obsessed with the reassurance of his phone, always checking emails, facebook messages and using it when driving (tisk tisk). Bob was receiving some pretty significant signs from the Universe to slow down. For the past eighteen months he was sitting … Read More

Relax and trust the process

I Got What I Wanted And then didn’t trust the process. Three months ago I prayed for a health retreat. Don’t tell them (it’s our secret), but I wanted some space from my family. Your typical Mother story, nothing exciting or different I just felt like I was doing everything for everyone and was completely unappreciated and burnt out. Funds are tight whilst we budget for our renovations and get the Sanctuary pumping again post COVID so I wanted it for free. A bit cheeky I know, but hey, I do a lot for others so I’m learning to realise … Read More
