13 ways parental abuse is still affecting your life

Are you aware of how past abuse is affecting your present life?

Those experiences may be negatively impacting your relationships, the decisions you make, the abundance you attract, your confidence, happiness and quality of life…

How many of these behaviours are true for you?

Have you ever hit rock bottom?

Have you ever hit rock bottom?

In that moment that you reach breaking point and you ‘give up’… your ego surrenders. That human, critical inner voice that has been trying to control outcomes for so long,is forced to submit. You release your grip, and take your hands off the wheel; and in doing so you allow a power so much greater than yourself to step in.

In that moment, you make a firm decision. Things cannot be the way they have been, for any longer. You are done. You are ready for something new. You need things to be different.

There is so much power in making that decision.  In doing so, you have set a strong, energetic intention.  The Universe responds quickly to this clarity.

And there is so much power in letting go, admitting you don’t have the answers, and surrendering. The Universe responds quickly to this trust and allowing.

'If this, then that'... What your underwear says about you

'If this, then that'... What your underwear says about you

If you’re always waiting for “this” to happen before you take action on “that”… you will never take action. There will always be another “this” that your mind comes up with, preventing you from having what you want.

If you’re waiting until you feel confident to do something that intimidates you… you will never, ever do it. The confidence comes through doing it, it comes after the action.

The path isn’t lit up until you take the first step. So start before you feel ready.  Move forward in the dark in faith, and know the Universe will rise up to meet you part way and illuminate the way for you.

Take action despite the self-doubt. Make a decision to do it despite the excuses.

You are worthy.

You can do whatever you dream of.

Is Mother's Day hard for you?

Is Mother's Day hard for you?

It’s time to stop seeking your mother’s love and approval, and to give yourself the love that your mum didn’t provide. It’s time to finally release all the pain and self-sabotage that’s been ruling your life. It’s time to be free of anguish, grief and lack of direction. It’s time to rise into your inherent power and own your true worth. It’s time you undertook the journey of recognition and recovery: of moving on, healing, and claiming your own self as the wonderful, vibrant woman you truly are.

Dealing with self-doubt

Dealing with self-doubt

Well, I am human, and I struggle with the human aspects of my self. My ego, self-doubt and self-sabotage. Feeling not good enough, judging myself as unworthy. 

I know that the only thing stopping me living out the full expression of my soul in this lifetime is me. 

But moving through my own bullshit takes daily work.

You're not perfect, but you are

You're not perfect, but you are

I dated a Christian, straight-edge vegan. At the time, I was a late night boozing wild child. And definitely not religious. My friends laughed and declared the relationship wouldn’t work, but it did. Ours was a beautiful union based on open communication, respect for all beliefs, and unwavering support of each other’s dreams – no matter how crazy.

Cocaine and Cruel Intentions

Cocaine and Cruel Intentions

Did I actually ever enjoy cocaine? I know the answer to this, and it’s no. Did I consume a lot of it? Yes. The prestige associated with the drug (especially in Australia, where a single gram costs several hundred AUD), the supposed glamour – I was riding the wave of it in my early 20s, just as I was riding waves in my teens.
