Crystal Wisdom - Crystals for Summer

The summer is now upon us — what are you dreaming about?

Holidays, sandy beaches, picnics in the park, BBQ's and a cocktail or two?

I'm guessing these may be at the forefront of your mind right now because they're the things in life that give us that all important feel good factor when the temperature gets warmer but it's not always easy to live them out when you are depending on money/weather/other people to fulfil them.

There is another way though that you can raise your vibrations over these next few weeks — with a crystal or two instead.

Wisdom and Wellbeing: How to Deal with Copycat Friends

I've been chatting with a few women lately about friendship twists and turns and one particular situation that has come up a lot - friends that imitate you.

I'm not just talking about liking the same pair of shoes or eating out at the same restaurant, these are particular experiences where women they know as friends, or former friend are changing their own lives to replicate theirs in every last detail including look, lifestyle and even copying career and business ideas.

Pearl of Wisdom Number 19 - Small Changes to Make for a Bigger Impact

Do you ever play that game of what you would do with your life if you won the lottery?

I do...

Firstly it would be to buy a massive house, with an indoor swimming pool -  one here and one in Canada!

Then I would upgrade a million things like my car, phone, my wardrobe and book a trip around the world, donate to charity and then I would buy a really quirky piece of commercial property and develop it into a wellness and holistic lifestyle hub with cafes, meeting rooms, shops and workshop space - that's my dream!

It's nice to dream eh?!

Capturing Confidence - Boundaries with Grace and Kindness

Today I have a confession to make...

I used to be a people pleaser - I used to base so many of my decisions on what other people thought of or wanted from me and I found it incredibly hard to say no, even if it was to my own detriment.

But then I found a way to change, I learnt how to grow my confidence and embraced a new way of living that reflected my core values and served my wellbeing.

A Self Care Bedside Set Up...

Are you someone who wants to incorporate more self care time into your day but feels like you don't have any space in your daily routine?

Well, today I'm talking about a bedside set up for self care because you can easily make more time for a little loving on yourself (in the self care kinda way!) if you have your bedside table set up right!

Crystal Wisdom - Spring Favourites

March may not always feel very much like spring but it's now officially here with the spring equinox and as well as giving the house the usual seasonal cleanse I'm thinking about ways to spring clean my mind and body too.

One thing that I like to do as the seasons change is re-focus which crystals I'm using for self care and healing and match them up to the vibe of that particular season as well as what's going on in my life lately and this is something I'll be teaching about at the Mindful Mantra Collective Day Retreat next month.

Wisdom and Wellbeing -Travel Tips

Photo by Chris Lawton 

Traveling to new places and exploring the world can be so much fun however along side it often  comes issues like jet lag, digestion upset, catching a virus or feeling overwhelmed and anxious about the challenges you face traveling and experiencing a new place.

When I talk to other people it seems our self care practices often slip when we are away from home, I am guilty of this too and always end up feeling like I need another holiday just to get over my holiday!
