Weekly Words – Believe in Yourself

You are important.
You are incredible.
You are loved.
Your presence is needed here.
You are worthy of your desires.
~ Danielle LaPorte – The Desire Map

You are worthy of your desires.

I have this quotation stuck on the wall above my computer and it is fitting that I should share it with you today as I am preparing for my very first Desire Map Workshop this weekend. Sometimes I look at it and fully believe in myself and other times when I am not so sure this reminds me to.

We all have times when we feel unimportant, unloved or even just unsupported in our lives. Having suffered with depression myself in the past this is an all too common feeling for me, and one that I constantly battle against returning. At the moment I am winning (and have been for a good few years now) and it is quotations like this one that help remind me that I am important, incredible, loved and worthy of my desires. It doesn’t mean that I don’t have a wobble every now and again, but on the whole I look at myself and know that I am worth my space here on Earth.

The thing is, the more you believe in yourself and act in ways that reinforces that belief, the more your confidence improves and the more it becomes part of your everyday reality.

Like Attracts Like

In fact, the more I do this work, the more good comes to me. But I couldn’t do it alone. The single best thing you can do to attract more positivity and support into your life is to surround yourself with people who truly believe in you – not those who bring you down. It can be hard to begin with, but getting yourself out and meeting people who share your interests or passions is one of the best ways I know to improve your own self-belief, self-confidence and self-esteem. The more you talk to people, the more you will realise that they all have their own fears and wobbles about whether they are ‘good enough’.

So this week I am challenging you to do one thing that helps you attract more positivity into your life. It could be making a commitment to a healthy lifestyle, following a passion that you have put off for some reason or even catching up with a friend who makes you feel amazing. Whatever it is, don’t just do it once – make the effort to schedule it in regularly and you will soon see the difference it makes to your own self-belief.

Have an amazing week,

Weekly Words – Are you Seeing the Signs?

Have you ever heard a particular song over and over, or switched on the TV and heard something that seems to resonate with you? Have you been on social media and noticed a similar theme to your newsfeed posts or heard different people telling you the same thing?

If you notice them, then you are probably aware that they usually mirror what is going on in your life or something that you really need to listen to. If you don’t, then maybe you don’t need help at the moment or haven’t asked for a sign from the Universe – but signs like this are everywhere if you just pay attention and look for them.

1111This past week I have seen number sequences over and over again (11:11 on the clock and woken at 2:22 in the morning more than a few times).  According to Doreen Virtue these numbers hold a significance and are a way for our Angels to bring us messages.  So, for example a combination of 1’s is message to think only about what you want, not what you don’t want (definitely a message I need to take in) and 2’s remind us that our dreams are manifesting into reality, as long as we continue to nurture them.

Coincidentally (or not!) my Facebook page has also just reach 217 likes and this happens to be one of my favourite numbers as it reminds me of the love that I had growing up in my wonderful family home with that street number). It is also the 15th anniversary of leaving my native Australia and a poignant reminder of the family and friends I left behind.

My challenge to you this week is to pay attention to any repeated signs that you see, here or even smell. Are they reminding you of something? Are they more than just a coincidence and guiding you on your journey through life?

I believe they are.

I wish you a great week.

More than I imagined…

WOW!  I’ve been so excited about my Desire Map License and then thought long and hard about my own bonuses.  What I hadn’t prepared myself for was the positive effect that my leap would have on everything else that I do…  So, here’s my last 24 hours in a nutshell:

  • A licensee who already signed up but loved my bonuses has contacted me & wants my technical help – putting on my soul-inspired Web Goddess hat
  • My wonderful Crystal Therapy course has another applicant – this in such a passion of mine so I can’t wait to start next year’s course
  • I’ve made the very important mental leap from self-employed and alone, to self-employed with great help!  This may come as a pleasant surprise to my new and fantastic VA and good friend Sue… we all need support and I’ve finally realised that I do too!

Three amazing outcomes from one decision – it’s wonderful how one decision has increased into these three positive benefits…

So looking forward to the months to come!

I’ve Jumped and I’m Floating!!

Decisions, decisions, decisions – I’m fine with the small ones but the big ones can be scary!

I made myself slow down, I listened to my heart, I trusted my gut, read my Angel cards (and did all the calculations and business stuff too) then leapt off the edge of my comfort zone and into the unknown.

So, what’s the big decision then???

I’m now one of the very first Desire Map Licensees in the world – yup the whole wide world – EEEK!!  I think that made the decision even scarier for me as I’m putting myself up there with a handful of others to host workshops based on The Desire Map book…

You see, this all started when I discovered The Desire Map almost by chance (oh how synchronicity is something I appreciate so much now!) and wrote about How The Desire Map is changing my life back in June last year.  It really resonated with me and completely changed my focus in life – living for how I want to feel NOW, not how I want others to see me or what I want in 10 years time.  Loved every minute of the book and sorting my own core desired feelings.  I even got the kids involved and they listed some of their CDFs!

So, roll on a few months and I had told just about everyone I knew about the Desire Map and to be honest they were probably sick of hearing it!  So when Danielle LaPorte decided to launch her Book Clubs, I jumped at the chance of sharing it with even more people and became a Book Club Leader.  It was essentially a way to help people who had the book and wanted to learn more but needed someone to guide them through it and help them look at their own core desired feelings with a little gentle prodding from a mentor.  My book club ran twice and I enjoyed it but I’d decided not to run any more as it was a bit hit and miss if people came each week and I really didn’t feel that it matched my way of working either.  A few people still ask for it, but taking out more evenings from my family for no return wasn’t sitting well with me either.

Strangely it was at this point that the Desire Map Licensing Programme came along (hmmm)…. My instant reaction was… “NO” and my inner voice said “It’s too much money”, “I couldn’t do that”, “why would anyone come to me?”, “I’m not good enough to run those”…

Why do negative thoughts always push the positive ones out of the way??

In the past I might have dismissed it and that would have been it.  Negative wins again…  But not any more.  The messages about the License kept appearing on my Facebook newsfeed and in my inbox.  Clients kept telling me how much difference I had made in their lives and that I have helped them on to the right path…

Maybe I can do this??  Maybe people will come to my workshops???

Yes, I can do this!!  I let the negative thoughts go and truly looked in to the programme.  I took the time to assess my finances, check out the offer, really find out what was involved – getting hard facts before making a decision.  I have some wonderful friends who all told me to follow my heart and that I can do anything and a husband who supports me all the way.  It was an amazing couple of days pondering my decision!

So, now I’ve jumped and feel like I’m floating!!  There’s lots of wonderful work ahead as I am still not 100% clear on how I’ll implement it or sell it within my business.  I just know that it will complement my practice hugely and be something unique for this part of the world, as well as having a relaxed and rural vibe.  I can’t wait to get started!!!

One Year On… and I’ve done it!!

Just over a year ago I wrote Sometimes “No” is the best answer, a blog post about a job that I applied for to bring in some much needed cash, but that I honestly didn’t want (and happily didn’t get!). Well, a year on from that post and my decision to focus on working for myself, I have an update to the story… Continue reading

Why Be Normal?


When we were teenagers, my best buddy and I used to have this saying just about everywhere – he’d even written on the head of the teddy bear everyone signed for my 21st birthday!  It was just one of our special buddy things that I took for granted. But almost two decades later it is still a pretty accurate reflection of my life… Continue reading
