Manifesting is such a buzz word and a lot of people are opening up to the idea that they have the power to create all that they desire but why can’t you manifest that thing you want the most?! I mean you’ve done the vision board and all that jazz but still nothing.
If that sounds familiar you must check out my video on what’s going wrong and the real secret to manifesting.
I feel so connected to the flow after a seminar with Amir Zoghi and Oren Harris. If you’re really struggling with getting into the “flow” I am sure their work will help you.
They were both amazing but I really resonated with Oren and got the chance to hang out with him afterwards. I am pretty sure he could stop traffic with his energy if he wanted to! I really was blow away by how in the zone he was, how he could communicate with his silence and just radiate perfect pure love. Check him out and connect on Facebook because connecting with that type of energy can only make radical shifts in your life.
Have an awesome week in the flow!
Believing in you
If you stumbled across a young girl that was looking sad, perhaps your daughter, granddaughter, God daughter, niece or friend…….
Would you dare tell her that she wasn’t good enough, that she was ugly, stupid or fat? Would you tell her that she would never get what she wanted, no girl wanted to be friends with her or no boy would ever ask her out.
Would you point out what needs fixing? Maybe a nose job, lose a few pounds and change her hair to get noticed?
Would you make her feel worthless and undeserving of your attention?
Or would you embrace her in your arms, tell her she was beautiful and that everything was going to be alright.
Would you tell her how she could achieve anything that she dreams, that she was a great friend and that no boy was ever worth her tears?
Would you do whatever you could to make her smile again until she was giggling and skipping away feeling on top of this world.
What if this girl was you?
What would you say to your 5 year old self?
Would you treat her the way you treat yourself now at this age?
Would you want her to know all the awful things that you say about yourself? How much you hate yourself or how unworthy you feel?
Would you want her to hear how much you try to self sabotage?
When you are at your lowest, take out a picture of you as a child and I dare you to speak those negative words.
Stop and think for a moment that the same spirit that lived in that little girl still resides in you now.
Be kind to yourself, love yourself. We all need reminding sometimes

Sunday’s should be a day where we can rejuvenate and slow down. Lately I’ve been working 7 days a week so Sunday’s have been far from rejuvenating but I have made a stance for my health and saying no to work (or at least some of it!) and make Sunday a day of rest (besides writing this blog post!).
My beautiful neighborhood! Every time I open the door of my apartment I step into a walking meditation! I took a walk along the coast from Clovelly to Bondi this morning finishing up at the markets.
I started a mini cleanse yesterday and have only had juice and smoothies for the past 2 days. To be honest I am really struggling this time and having awful detox symptoms but I wanted to give my body a break from digestion so it could regain the energy that I’ve lost from working so much. The best thing about a cleanse is how it forces you to slow down and you can really connect to the present moment. Cleansing is also about turning inwards for a few days and nothing better than Marianne Williamson’s soul food to turn to while I rest. This daily devotional book is a must read! (more…)
Hello my loves!
I have a quick little message for you today after a little revelation over lunch. It’s about how we all too often settle and we need to ask for what we want in life!
Check it out…
I am hypnotised.
All of a sudden I have my grove on chanting along with my queen.
I’ve been drinking, I’ve been drinking,
I get filthy when that liquor get into me
I’ve been thinking, I’ve been thinking
Why can’t I keep my fingers off it, baby?
I want you….
Goes around my head all damn day and night. Stirring up things I wasn’t feeling before!
A symbol of empowerment.
Beyonce Quotes spread like an inspirational virus because “You’ve got as many hours in a day as Beyonce” right?
And we all hail to our Queen, someone to aspire to.
Because she’s empowering right? (more…)
Something pretty big has been stirring inside me the past few months. I have entered 2014 with such a strong vision and feel like I am getting cracked open a little more each week. I want to play big this year and I want to say come from a place of yes and living intuitively.
But to do so I have to use my fear as a compass to lead me to where I should be heading. I also have to do the work to shift all the negative and influential ways my mind has been programmed! I want to stay connected to the present moment and live from the heart.
It really is a daily commitment if you want to go deeper and play big and I want to share with you the things and people who inspire me so that I am not being sucked into the world of “this is how it should be” and stay in the belief that anything is possible.
If you’ve been following this blog for awhile you may know that I often refer to Gabrielle Bernstein, Mastin Kipps, Marie Forleo, Kris Carr, Kimberly Snyder and I consider Dr.Wayne Dyer my spiritual Godfather. I am always reading and listening to positive words, but today I want to hook you into some people who maybe you haven’t heard of – but you need to know!
Totally digging this guy right now. Would go as far as to say he’s my favourite motivator online right now! I stumbled upon Preston Smiles last year when I was going through a tough time and I needed to soak in as much positive energy as I possible. I have only recently re-discovered his videos and have been watching them many times over. Preston is Co-founder of the Love Mob so you have to check that out too! (I am looking into organizing a Love Mob in Sydney – stay tuned!) His message is powerful and thought provoking. I feel like many of his messages have been very timely for me and watching them makes me feel like I want to go deeper with my understanding of life and God.
This is his latest video but also check out one called “TransFORmation versus Change” This one was a much needed slap in the face!
Today I am vloging about something I usually refuse to talk about on my blog. But it’s time Whether you’re single or not this is a message that I know you can relate other areas of your life to. And if you have one of those annoying negative single friends share this video with them!
Oh I love a biscuit (Aussie speak for cookie!) When I was young I could easily have lived off them. I ate more biscuits than anything else!
Now days I rarely eat a store bought Biscuit but I love to experiment with sugar free alternatives. I made up this recipe based off a few I saw on line and they were so good. I think I ate half the dough before I put it in the oven! These are definitely the best sugar free cookies I have made. I have only just started using Rice Malt Syrup and it’s awesome as a sugar-free alternative. (more…)
Doubt kills everything.
This weekend I was overcome with doubt and insecurity. I have been doing a lot of “stepping outside of my comfort zone” lately but the past few days doubt crept in like a lion ready to pounce and take me down.
I was working on putting together a fitness challenge for Fit Girl Secrets (not too late to sign up for this 14 day kick-start program – click HERE) which went live yesterday and while filming the videos for the workouts I was overcome with my inner “mean girl” as some people like to call it. Saying I wasn’t good enough, my form wasn’t good, I didn’t look good on camera, or that I couldn’t possibly make this fitness business work. I was comparing myself to some of the well-known fitness girls and I thought who the heck do I think I am doing this.
I wanted to pull out and cancel the whole thing but I couldn’t. I already had people signed up and I couldn’t let anyone down. More importantly I couldn’t let myself down.
I was so exhausted by my work that I wanted to run and hide from blogging all together.
If you have ever run your own business you will know that it’s the best personal development course there is! It’s a journey which will bring up all of your crap. You can’t hide when it all rides on your back. Blogging has been easy for me as, writing isn’t so scary. Even when I’ve shared my most intimate stories, It doesn’t phase me because in some way I feel invisible. (oh except when I meet people who read my blog and they bring up the colonic story – don’t think I can ever live that one down!) (more…)
“How do you do it all”, is the question I get asked all the time when I tell people what I do for work.
Although I definitely have times when I feel completly overwhelmed and exhausted, most of the time I manage my time well and successfully juggle a Personal Training business with a full time job in media, writing/researching content for two websites and development of online programs and ebooks. Plus somewhere in there I maintain a social life, quality time with friends and family, exercise 5 days a week, cook and prepare healthy food and meditate daily!
Some days of work start at 4.45am and end at midnight, but when you’re folowing your bliss you have to live by the saying “short term pain, for long term gain”. There is also a quote that explains my reason’s for taking on so much “to be an entrepreneur you have to be willing to live a short term like most people won’t, to live a long time like most people can’t”.
Meaning if I put in the hard yards now and do what most people aren’t willing to do, I will set myself up for a more relaxed lifestyle later.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, full time Mum or juggling a hectic corporate career, these tips will help you get shit done.
Fuel yourself – When your schedule is full, you need to take care of yourself first and foremost so that you don’t end up with burn out. You can’t be good at your job if you have hit the wall so it’s important you eat well. You may think you need sugar to get you through but that’s BS. Sugar only causes you to peak and then your energy drops lower than before. Maintain your blood sugars with low GI foods, plenty of protein and greens and healthy carbs. Eat often if need be.
Schedule everything – This is the key to getting shit done. At first this was really hard for me as I am a fairly free-spirited, spontanious person who doesn’t like to plan things but it’s the only way I can manage my time. Every Sunday night I write in my diary what needs to be achieved that week. I write down how many blog posts I need to write and how much time I need to spend on developing new products. I allocate my time to do them each day, schedule that in around my PT clients and day job, plus pencil in my own gym times and social life. I even schedule in time to meditate and pray each morning and night. I don’t always stick to the exact times I allocate but most weeks I tick off everything I wrote down.
Break it down – When I need to write or work on my business I break it into 30 minute chunks of time and every 30 minutes I get a break of whatever I choose, sometimes I get up and dance, check Facebook or emails, clean, or do nothing for 5 minutes then I get back on my laptop and go for another 30 minutes with a clearer head.
