For the last 30 years I have taken a deep dive into the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical realms of personal wellbeing through the mind/body practices of Emotional Intelligence, Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology as well as the body/mind practices of Nia, Ageless Grace and Yoga.
My passion and focus flows from my own experience……..I started working in the early 80’s with big enthusiasm and dreams. Twenty years on, with a level of societal and organisational success under my belt, I was feeling stressed and drained of life energy. I was making a good living…….but running on empty.
Since 2000 my path has been one of learning and choosing to live well at every level of being: physical energy and balance, emotional choice and freedom from old patterns, mental curiosity and creativity, spiritual essence and impact. I have stayed inside my own journey researching my experience, allowing the inward work to unfold for me first, before outwardly sharing my understanding that is now so simply captured by the old Cherokee prophecy that says; “Our stressful past is based on a disconnect between the ‘clever head’ and the ‘loving heart’ resulting in imbalances in our lives and inequalities in the world.” I believe that the time is now to step into our power as conscious, mindful adults of the world. For me, this means living my free spirit as a Heart Leader and Soul Mover with the signature question…………What would your Heart say if it knew you were listening?
Heart Leader – Shifting perspective from fearing life to loving life, from survival to choice and growth, using practical EQ skill & heart energy mastery.
Soul Mover – Following heart intelligence as a doorway to intuition, using movement and energy management practices to align body, mind and spirit.
The world we are navigating
Paradoxically it is the worst of times and the best of times; a time of forced change and an opportunity to make life-shaping choices that benefit all life and all creation. In this NOW time of unprecedented fear for what the future holds and questions of how we should move forward, which headlines to believe, what changes to make, the ‘heart’ question continues to be a key to accessing the intelligence and creative energy of our consciousness. I believe that heart energy is not only the bridge between the body and the mind, it is also the access to soul energy, our consciousness, which is the same consciousness that creates everything, and which is at the core of, and provides meaning to, our physical presence in this life. The time is now to re-birth and re-embody a balanced feminine and masculine energy for us to contribute and collaborate in evolving and solving the challenges humanity is facing.
What I bring to the world at this time?
We all have a fourfold life to live; a body, a brain, a heart and a soul. Each of these aspects of our being is both a source of intelligence and a source of life force energy that is the foundation of our experience of wellness. The coherent blend of quiet mind and open heart gives us access to our own knowingness that supports new ways of seeing, feeling, thinking and doing……a new way of being and responding to life situations to be able to navigate life with more joy, vitality and wellbeing. I have felt, observed, experienced and I deeply trust in the creative mastery of love-inspired intention and how it connects us to dimensions of healing and potential that are unlimited, and available to all.
With this knowingness my centering focus is one of Roots and Reach – a grounded spirituality which supports me in trusting that the ‘here’ and ‘why’ is working for a greater good even when it looks and feels like chaos on the ground.
My life’s purpose is to live as I feel and mentor as I live.
To show up as a conscious presence bringing soul consciousness to humanity and the earth, connected through the wisdom of the heart to compassionate, harmonious, peaceful living, sharing my experience and understanding of heart energy mastery in a way that inspires and stretches people to find the power of their heart, the power of their spirit, the power of their voice and to live these in the power of their actions.
What does wellness mean for me? For me it doesn’t mean the absence of illness. I see illness as the body’s way of communicating that something is out of synch between our body, mind, heart and soul. So for me, wellness is the dynamic integration between these aspects which when in balance, I experience as a being flexible, adaptive, coherent, energised and stable. When out of balance and integration, we move towards rigidity and chaos……..illness.
How do I balance wellness in my Life? Everything is energy, our thoughts begin it, our emotions amplify it, our actions increase it’s momentum so being present and making conscious choices that serve at every level; body, mind, heart and soul, is the foundation of how I actively nurture wellness for myself.
What are my mindful practices? Living life as a the creation of a beautiful work of art, focussing on the essence and being flexible with the form as it unfolds.
Mind/body practices – Emotional Intelligence, Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology.
Body/mind practices – Nia, Ageless Grace and Yoga.
What advice do I have for women who feel stuck and uninspired? Start by moving your body. Mindful movement takes us out of our noisy, busy mind and reconnects us with the sensory intelligence of our flesh and bones and the emotional intelligence of our heart so that we can learn, unlearn and relearn as we change and grow.
