The GLOW up

2020. What an incredible year. Highs. Lows. Loss. Everything in-between. The whole world has experienced the same thing simultaneously. A moment in time we will talk about for the rest of our lives. We did it!

Today is Saturday, if that means anything?! Weekend vibes seem to have lost their momentum. Yet we can turn this energy around and start our GLOW up, right here, right now. If like me you've had enough of the same same habitual living, with added insult of elasticated waists for extra measure, today is the day it changes.

Christmas is just around the corner and holds different meaning for all of us. Love it or loath it, the story itself is all about birth. So let us rebirth ourselves. An upgraded version. Yes please. Feeling that glow heighten from within has never felt so good.

Hello happy vibes. Goodbye expectations. Embracing love. Spiritual practise. Acceptance. Pressing the fuckety bye bye button. And breathe.

Energetically we are in eclipse season which finishes on Monday's new moon. Yes more releasing is on the cards. Let's be honest, we all need it - no one has escaped the 2020 gloom. Waving goodbye to a ten year cycle, with the knowledge that the age of aquarius is about to shine upon us. Hallelujah. There is hope. Light. New beginnings. Starting over.

Let the GLOW up begin.

- Do things that bring you happiness, prompting a smile and laughter from the inside out. Share that energy with others even if they scorn their resting bitch face right back at you.

- Wear your favourite clothes, colours and fragrance. I could write a book about the hilarious comments I've had from random strangers re my stylish dress sense at the supermarket. God I love the Scots - nae messin'

- Play music. Dance. Sing. Like no one is watching.

- Maintain spiritual practise. Meditation. Chanting. Breathing. Yoga. Stretching. Exercise. Mindfulness.

- Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate. With water. Cut back on alcohol. It will help you sleep.

- Think gratitude and the blessings in your life. There is always something to be grateful for. 

Wishing you all a glow up Saturday gorgeous souls. Sending each and everyone of you love love love.

Magical beginnings are here to stay!

Got to laugh

It's 6am in the morning. I've been awake since 4am. I'm sipping my second cup of fresh coffee and writing this blog. This is not a usual thing for me as I love my sleep, yet this morning I awoke to loud noises in the house.

I jump out of bed, go to my sons bedroom and open his door. He looks at me shocked, reminiscent of a rabbit in headlights.

 

'Mum, why are you awake?' he asks.

'I heard a noise in the house and wanted to check you're ok' I reply.

'Yeh, I'm good, just tidying my room' he says.

'It's 4am. You've woken me up. What in gods name are you doing!?' I ask.

'Mum. Tidying my room. You've been on at me for ages, so I'm doing it' he replies.

 

Keep it together I say to myself. Do not over react with your Sagittarius rising fire. Breathe. Let it go. Let it go. LET IT GO.

 

'Erm, can I ask why you chose this time to tidy it?' I enquire.

'Yeh sure, I couldn't sleep....' is his reply.

'Max you've woken me up! I'm now wide awake. I won't go back to sleep' I snap.

'Mum, I just wanted to make a start on it. I didn't mean to wake you. Sorry' he says.

'Well that didn't work' is my sarcastic response as I go downstairs to make my first coffee.

 

How do you react to such a laid back Leo who is now sound asleep, while his mother sits wide awake, bursting with caffeine and pondering her next move?

Let me tell you. You don't.

 

'It's just as well you're loved!' I say to him with a smile on my face and coffee in hand.

 

2020 has been a continual sequence of WTF moments. I'm so over it. I have invested in amazing concealer. I can laugh. And I absolutely love my son, even when he's a bloody pest.

So, if you see me today and think I'm looking tired with bags under my eyes, just know these bags are more precious than a Mulberry.

Life is weird and we are all reacting to it in different ways.

Keep compassion in your mind, love in your heart and everything will be ok.

Intention

I'm a little bit embarrassed to see my last blog was in May, where has time gone?

Like everyone, it has taken time to adapt to a new working style during quarantine. What's the saying, it takes 21 days to form a habit and 3 months to create a lifestyle? Well I'm sure many of us have some weird shit lifestyle issues going on...

It's all good though.

Let's talk the energy of intention; why we do what we do or choose what we choose. This has been a hot topic with my clients. It's essential for self awareness and growth. Without self knowledge, nothing evolves and if we don't fully know ourselves, how can we expect others to know us? As my mother used to say, communication is everything.

Relationships in lockdown have been tested to the max whether personal or professional. Firstly the relationship with ourselves. Do we like who we have morphed into over the last few months? Really stop and think about it. Take a moment, a deep breath and tell me about your greatest learning and where your intention has been? There is no right or wrong way to answer this. Only awareness. Growth. When we know better we can do better.

Intention is energy. We see it. Feel it. Sense it. It cannot be masked because it is the foundation for all our choices. We all act out our intention. It's called projection, so what are we projecting on a conscious level? More importantly what thoughts are being birthed on a subconscious level? Very deep discussion for a Sunday morning.

Sorry. Not sorry.

So, the big question - what is our intention based on?

Is it kindness? Being of service? Sharing love and hope? Or is it fear. Hatred. Thinking the grass is greener?

It takes strength and courage to have a deep look within. I laugh when people think this work is woo woo. If any of you have embarked upon a spiritual journey, you know. Enough said. There's no stone left unturned. Falling in love with who we are is the reward of self exploration. No facade here my dear.

Be responsible for the energy you create is the mantra I'm sharing with clients just now. Actually it's what I've always shared, for 15 years to be precise.

All energy starts with mind energy. The story or thoughts we tell ourselves directly impact our emotions. The physical body will react to those emotions and manifest them within our cells and general wellbeing. This wellness then creates an instant connection or disconnection to our soul. Hence the mind, body, soul, emotion connection.

The majority of us are sentient beings, we feel deeply and have empathy for one another. That means we can feel heavy energy too. There is no doubt heavy energy is everywhere globally, so being selective and protecting ourselves from certain media channels, social media, specific people or situations is vital. It doesn't mean hiding away from the world though.

No. We need each other.

Showing up to the world with fresh new energy is our responsibility. Each of us plays a massive role and if like me, you believe in people and their capacity to love, then let's create it. Please. What we do right now will determine our immediate future.

Positivity starts in you. Me. Each of us.

We've got the power to make change happen.

Set our intention and keep believing.
