I was reflecting when all this craziness began at the start of the year.
Here in Australia we had fires and then the world experienced lock down.
People were doing all sorts of extra loving kindness acts to support each other.
Whilst I am sure there is still lots of that happening I wonder have we dropped the ball and gotten use to this way of life?
Today in an effort to up my own game I am doing extra loving kindness meditation and be more mindful to ensure I am offering support where I can.
Here is my version of the loving kindness meditation
I continue to cook extra meals for my dad and some older women that I know. I am sure you are doing beautiful offerings too. Thank you for what you send out in to our world, it truly makes a difference.
Just a heads up, there are just 4 spaces left for the September Share Your Unique Message Program. I would suggest booking now.

After having a connection with my Coach/Mentor this week we talked about going deeper and serving from that place.
I shared that I have long felt that my work is to do the work on me.
Meaning – to journal, to understand and know myself authentically at deeper and deeper levels, through meditation, mindset, getting out of my comfort zone and learning from leaders who I respect and of course having my own coach & mentors. We function better with great support.
I have been sitting with what I deeply desire, asking myself what do I truly want.
My answer continues to be, I want to serve.
I want to serve women, like you – to believe in themselves again and to now you have what it takes to share your unique gifts with our world.
Our world needs your unique message, your audience is literally waiting for you.
Tomorrow is the last day to take up the Early Bird Special Price to join us on Share Your Unique Message Program.
Please do not let money be the reason you hold back, talk to me and we can work it out.
At the very beginning of my coaching journey I spent several years as a co facilitator of women’s workshops. These were deeply connected and spiritual in nature, my role was of support. To be the best support person I could be, I learned to be very present, to pay attention to the how the women were responding and to listen deeply. When you don’t talk, we get to listen.
I consider these 7 years as a wonderful apprenticeship that continue to serve me well on my journey as a coach and healer.
With all the stimulation that exists in our world today, we are easily detracted. Because of these distractions we are reluctant to be still and listen and if only we realised how potent this simple act is, we would stop resisting and make it a priority in our day.
Have you ever noticed that when you are talking to someone, 2 sentences in, the other person has stopped listening and is already preparing what they are going to say. You can feel it and it doesn’t feel great.
When we practise listening deeply we not only honour the person who is sharing, we start to listen to ourselves, to our language, and to our souls whispers.
We have so much wisdom within us, if only we took the time to listen.
Do you feel like you are honouring your soul’s journey, do you even know what that is?
I love supporting your individual soul’s journey and to help you to live in your light.
If you are ready to take the next and honour your journey, I am listening.
I have been a student of Personal Development for over 20 years, some of you know my story of reading the Dalai Lama’s book and it literally changed my life.
Personal Development encourages us to be positive, to look for what we are grateful for and to learn the lesson available and I agree these are wonderful and empowering skills and ways of being worthy of strengthening.
However, there is another piece to the puzzle – part of the commitment to expand consciousness, which is what most people who want to make a difference are motivated by,( may use different language) we must heal the wounds and not just stick a bandaid on them.
To heal our wounds they must be brought from the darkness, hidden, suppressed, compartmentalised to the light, to be acknowledged and transformed, healed.
I am not saying to go digging, I agree with the term ” if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. I am talking about if something is holding us out from living a happy, fulfilled life then maybe there is something that requires healing.
There are many ways to heal and I am happy to share more of these in future emails.
Today I want to focus on a gentle and kind method of connecting with our inner child.
Over the weekend we watched a great Disney movie – Christopher Robbin – Euan McGregor plays a brilliant role and the story speaks exactly to this topic. I wont spoil it, Ill let you check it out for yourself.
I was reminded of the importance of connecting with our inner child, that free, fun loving, free spirited little being that was full of wisdom and wonder.
Some activities that I love to do to connect with my little Kym are taking myself on a picnic and maybe buying myself a cup cake or a sweet treat, taking a walk in nature looking for fairies, colouring in, playing on the playground equipment in the park. Watching Disney movies.
I pay attention to how I feel, often memories will bubble up and sometimes wounds can surface, this is when we get to acknowledge and reassure our younger self that we have our back and we are safe, cared for and acknowledge by our adult self.
This is a powerful and empowering way to heal those aspects of ourselves that maybe yearning for attention.
It really is no surprise that going into the dark this winter solstice was a little scary and intense – however I am so glad that I did.
Having a dark of the moon right on the energies of the solstice intensified the energies all the more – I am also born on the dark of the moon which adds extra potency, it really brings out the witch in me.
I use to love the winter solstice ritual that my children did at their Steiner school.
All the children would sit quietly in a darkened room with just 1 mother candle burning in the centre – much like the above photo, one by one they would walk the spiral, slowing and reverently to light their candle off the centre candle, then walk back, carrying their light to place it on the spiral to join in bringing a greater light for all.
It was a beautiful ceremony that really gave the children the experience of the blessings of winter and the potency and potential
of our internal light.
This solstice I did my own spiral in a metaphorical way – as I walked slowly in the dark towards my inner flame – I surrendered my fear of being controlled by the masculine. I lit my candle and carried back out of the spiral the knowing that the light would join me in expanding any darkness ie limitation around where I was allowing myself to be controlled by the masculine or in fact anything external.
The next few days where emotionally tumultuous – it came in the form of a business challenge and a family challenge – in particular with my estranged sister.
It felt overwhelming, painful and there were points it felt “too hard”.
I chose to keep reflecting, journaling and meditating. I went to my favourite river walk and hugged a few trees. I prayed to my guide, Kuan Yin for strength and guidance. I also began listening to Marianne Williamson’s Book “A Women’s Worth” – I must read for all.
During one of my meditations I was shown an image of situation my sister and I were in as little girls and from that image I knew what action I needed to take. It wasn’t an easy step to take but I took the action anyway. What my sister chooses now is up to her and I continue to send love and light regardless.
I have come out of this energy with a renewed fire in my belly to be the empowered woman I am committed to be.
I have a deepened resolve to honour my mission and less tolerance for disempowered models that no longer serve.
When we have the courage to face the dark the light joins us.
I would love to hear how you have travelled this past few days, my beautiful goddess women.
Vision Boards – A Powerful Tool for Creating The Life of Your Dreams.
I can’t believe I have not written a post about vision boards before now. Oh dear that is my bad.
I have been using and teaching about the power of vision boards ever since I learned about them from the movie the Secret back in 2006.
If you haven’t watched The Secret Movie I highly recommend it and if you haven’t watched it for a while could be a good time to re-watch.
John Assaraf shares his love of vision boards and the power of them.
Pretty much everything I have ever really wanted to bring about in my life I have had it on my vision board – I use to do them as an activity with my 3 children to remind them of how powerful they are and that they truly can create the life of their dreams. It has been a very successful tool for me and continues to be.
If you are new to Vision Boards or haven’t made one for a while here is what I suggest you do.
Take some time to get clear about what you want to create in your life, it could be a board for a specific area of your life such as health and wellness, or career or a broader whole of life board including wellness, career, love, home, car, jewellery etc.
Take some time to write down your dreams.
Once you have some ideas, find some pictures and words that represent those dreams and desires either by printing them off from the internet or from magazines and taking a large piece of cardboard – arrange your pictures and words in a way that you like. I currently use a pinboard which I love.
You can also use Pinterest to create a secret board for yourself. Just remember to view it often.
Place your board somewhere you will see it often – in your office or bedroom – on the fridge – be mindful if you have others in your household who may not be supportive of your dreams then keep inside your wardrobe door or somewhere that is private for you.
You want to spend some time often looking at the pictures and feeling into how you feel living that version of your life. Daydreaming is a powerful way to bring your visions into being and its fun, we use to spend hours doing it as kids.
Have some fun and be sure to put a big ✔ when you have achieved your goal/dream.
I would love to hear of your success’s or maybe you have some tips that others could benefit from, please share.
Unless you have been hibernating in a cave somewhere, we all know our world has changed. Through the chaos of fires, floods and virus’s we have been called inward, literally and for the aware, spiritually too.
The Mayan’s predicted that 2012 would be the end of the world, and since then the energies certainly have shifted however, the bigger shift has come this year, in 2020.
Many of us could feel a big year coming and for those of us, light workers, you may have experienced a wake up.
A feeling that you simply can’t ignore and actually don’t want to. A call to your purpose, a call to be who you were born to be.
Hallelujah – I heard it too and yes I have made some big adjustments – I am stepping out of what has been familiar to me and following the guidance to serve a greater cause.
I want to take a moment to acknowledge each and everyone of you are who are putting your hand up and saying yes to the call – even if it is a little shakerly.
I hear you, I see you and I am here to support you.
So lets address the question that many ask – so what is a light worker and how do I know if I am one.
I light worker is a person who has chosen to come to earth to transform dark ( adversity, Fear, Limitation) into light for the betterment of all. Light working is a way of being – it is a mission that you just know you are here to honour.
Usually light workers will choose careers like coaches, therapists, nursers, yoga teachers, school teachers, Oracle card readers, midwives, mothers, artists, musicians anyone who is offering their gifts for a greater purpose than themselves. Light workers can be empaths, powerful manifestors, they can feel like they don’t fit in.
If you are questioning if you are a light worker, the answer is probably yes.
I believe we are headed towards a new way of being and eventually all will realise they are light beings – however for now we require the awake to support the waking. That’s why we are being called.
So now that you know that – what do you do?
Firstly you set about healing yourself – doing the practises that you are drawn to – meditation, journaling, energy work, nourishing your body and mind with healthy uplifting energies. Getting the support that your require to heal yourself.
Spend plenty of time in nature and start to pay conscious attention to the guidance you are receiving and find a tribe to hang out with who will support you to explore and expand more fully into who you truly are, a beautiful light worker here to do their bit to heal and expand our world.
I am offering My Share Your Unique Message is July – A 6 Week Live Virtual Course to discover, enhance and share your light with the world.
I also have a private Facebook Group where I offer guidance and support – with mini readings and much more.
I am deeply committed to my purpose to assist light worker women to be who they were born to be.
As women our automatic response is to put everyone else first and we are great at it.
We have watched and learned from our mothers, and grandmothers and they learned it from their grandmothers. At some point in time this served our communities well. Not anymore, our world needs us.
What if we really backed ourselves – what if we placed as high a priority on our dreams, our desires our purpose, our calling as we did on those around us?
So often we place more importance on what our children, parents, partners or siblings require, (believe me I speak from experience), that there is no energy or time left for our hearts calling.
So we have never really backed ourselves, we have had half hearted attempts and not seen the results so we have put it on the back burner again for another time.
If this pandemic has taught us something surely it is how precious life is and how changing a world we live in is. This chaos has a purpose to stir us into action to honour our calling our purpose and our mission.
His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama said, “it is western women who will save our world”.
What are you doing to honour this cause?
Are you continuing to allow others needs and wants to be more important than yours?
I say ladies let’s take off those metaphorical aprons and come together and support each other to get on with our greater mission to save our world.
To shift the balance from the masculine, do, do, do, competitive model to the all-inclusive, leave no one behind feminine way.
We are so used to pushing our desires to the side and saying I’ll do it when I can and I’ll do it myself.
Well no more – its time to step out and into your own spotlight and shine those amazing gifts and talents that have been brewing below the surface for all these years.
Get a coach, get a buddy, and get clear on what is in your heart and then start taking the steps towards it.
I decide, after being inspired by one of my mentors, that I was going to come out of this lock down, a better version of me.
At the start of our stay at home, the only real difference was that we weren’t eating out at restaurants, something we did a few times a week.
I began to notice that I was using alcohol, chocolate and eating out as a form of escaping, there was something I wasn’t honouring, a truth that I was putting off facing.
So as a way of connecting with this part of myself I chose to stop the chocolate and alcohol as well.
What has replaced the escaping is the opportunity to confront those aspects of my way of being that weren’t in alignment.
It doesn’t matter how much work we have done on ourselves, It’s scary to let go of what is familiar.
What I got in touch with is that I haven’t really backed myself to live my passion. I have a love and connection to coach women to live their passions and whist I have done some of this, I haven’t fully embraced my full potential and really gone for it.
I did not want to get to the end of my life not having honoured my mission whole heartedly.
So, my life has taken 180 degrees turn.
I have a partner who has my back, I have engaged 2 beautiful coaches, (support is important to keep meeting and going beyond the edges) and I am giving myself a year to see what I can create, I’ll then review.
I believe this has been a wake up call for all of us to get onto our aligned path more authentically and fully.
At 58 I have plenty of time to be the women I have dreamt of being and to serve and hold space for other women to live their mission.
If not now, when?

I know its not a new question, however it is a poignant one right now.
In all the chaos the way to stay calm and grounded is to focus inward and focusing on what we are grateful for. Gratitude can lead us to come back to ourselves, to calm our selves and listen to all that is wonderful in our lives.
Things are changing, and that is not always comfortable, however the more we resist the more we suffer. When we can acknowledge our emotions, not make ourselves wrong and step back into our power we know who we want to be and how we want to respond. Honour that, trust that.
Gratitude is a pathway that we can access in any moment in any situation.
I have chosen to up my own gratitude practise as a way of balancing my own life. Feeling incredibly blessed to have an online business doing what I love has become more deeply appreciated. I feel for those who are in chaos and feel out of control and faced with needing to find a new pathway in their careers.
The flip side is that now may be the best opportunity to choose a new way, a new career path a new way of generating income. There are so many new opportunities to be well rewarded for doing what we love, we just have to be open to new ways of thinking around generating income, think abundantly and allow yourself to imagine the best case scenarios.
Here are a few tips that may help you navigate a way forward.
❤ if there were no limitations – what would you love to do –
❤ is there a hobby or passion that can be transformed into a career path
❤ what have people always come to you for?
❤ what is your greatest talent, skill, gift?
Allow yourself to dream and dream big – by putting pictures out into the universe of what you love and are grateful for you may well be delightfully surprised by the universe offering a new connection.
If you would like to book a session with me to help you connect the pieces I would love to assist you.
