Meet people where they are at.
It’s important to meet people where they are, not where we want them to be.
In fact they can’t be anywhere else in that moment, and you can’t force that either.
There is a tendency, in many, to re-characterise people’s experiences without being asked.
You tell them you are feeling badly, they tell you all the reasons you should feel good. You tell them you are challenged by your circumstances, they tell you what they think you can do to make things easier.
There is a place for these offerings- particularly when requested.
We are more likely to arrive at the next best place on our journeys when someone actually attunes to where we are at, without making any effort to improve upon or re-frame it.
We don't need to be saved- we need to be seen.
That's the healing, right there.
I hear you, I see you, I honour your choices.
You make me so proud. Every single day.
You always have.
I am so grateful to be your big sister.
You are magic. Never forget that. 💗
In a society that profits from your self doubt, liking yourself is a rebellious act. 😇
Are you okay? Such a powerful question that truly has the ability to change a life. The power of one person taking the time to invest in the well-being of another is priceless.
Let’s have those conversations. Not just today but every day.
There was once a time that I felt I had to do everything myself. I was on my own, i didn’t trust anyone. I was terrified and most of all I had to put on a brave face, I needed to be a rock for my baby sister. I took on the weight of the world. I hid in plain sight for years, I never spoke to anyone about how I felt. I didn’t want to burden anyone. I didn’t process my emotions or the trauma I had experienced and I thought that suppressing it meant it went away. It didn’t and I almost lost my life because of it. I still feel a certain level of shame typing that, but fuck stigma. We are human, we’re not robots.
Take the opportunity to talk to someone about how your really feeling. Take the mask of for a minute. You are supported. You are worth it. Today and every other day.
Emotion - Energy in motion
In a fully functional organism, an emotion has a very short life span.
It’s like a momentary ripple or wave on the surface of your being.
When you are not in your body however, an emotion can survive inside you for days or weeks, or join with other emotions of a similar frequency that have merged and this becomes pain.
What you resist persists.
Any energy you fight you feed.
What you embrace will dissolve.
I feel the most myself that I ever have before
I am not afraid anymore, nor apologetic
I am unbound
I am home
I am free
“One day I’ll make it”
Is your goal taking up so much of your attention that you reduce the present moment to a means to an end?
Is it taking the joy out of your doing?
Are you waiting to start living?
If you develop such a mind pattern, no matter what you achieve or get, the present will never be good enough; the future will always seem better.
A perfect recipe for permanent dissatisfaction and nonfulfillment, don’t you agree?
The light that you see in others is also your own. .
Happy Monday fam!

Lets talk FEAR 🙈 and the importance of taking ACTION 💥
If you told me three years ago that I would be about to complete my Yoga Teacher Training, be half way through my Bachelor of Social Work degree, running an essential oils business, and about to complete a coaching course; all while still working a full time job I would have absolutely laughed in your face. I would have said something like that all sounds great but there is no way I can do that. Why?
I didn’t believe I was capable of such things. I remember thinking there was no way I was smart enough to go to uni and do a degree like social work, I was terrified. These limiting beliefs I had been harbouring for quite some time really held be back. I stayed in my comfort zone and I failed to take any action. This meant my life was not moving in a forwards momentum and everything was remaining the same.
It wasn’t until I took action, and enrolled myself into the uni prep course on a whim one day that things started changing in my life. Uni was the first step and really showed me my potential. Beginning my social work degree also cemented my passion and purpose, that I was here to serve and empower people. Its all flowed from here and led me to where I am now. Imagine if I never started? I’d be in the same place I was three years ago! Then where would I be in five years?
Now - this is where fear comes into it. Can I please highlight that fear will always be with you, it will always be a part of your life. Taking leaps and getting out of your comfort zone will always be scary. It is this way for everyone, even the most successful people. However the difference between people living their dreams is simply and only that they decide to acknowledge the fear and continue on through anyway.
Remember - We only get one shot at living this life. Lets make a mark. Lets live the life we dream of. The time is going to pass regardless.

💜Lavender - The Mother of oils as she has the multitude to care for and support a wide range of things💜.
Lavender was an oil I didn’t think I would like at first. The thought of it made me think of yuck toilet spray or old lady. However, once I smelt real lavender I fell in love with her. She is hands down one of my most used oils, and an essential in every home.
This Mumma is known to have a harmonising effect on our nervous system. Fantastic for promoting an atmosphere for a well rested sleep. Quite often our sleep issues are directly related to an overactive mind or mental stress. Lavender helps to calm, relax, sooth and regulate anxious feelings, worries, tension and combat stress. Fantastic for skin, wrinkles, eczema, dermatitis etc. Helpful for bites, cuts scratches and wounds. Beneficial for the relief of headaches, aches and pains. Great for assisting to alleviate premenstrual tension and menstrual pain.
Emotionally she is our oil of communication and calm.
She promotes open communication, self awareness, peace of mind and encourages one to speak their innermost thoughts and desires. Uplifting you, reviving your spirits and encouraging you to share your true self - while letting go of feelings of fear, feeling unimportant, unheard or unloved.
I feel as though the era we live in is quite synonymous with mental stress and anxiety, and that we could all benefit from Lavender’s support in some way or another.
