Tools to help when the s**t hits the fan!

I am sure we have all had one of those moments when it would appear that the proverbial s**t has his the fan and everything is going wrong and you really require some help.

Well I had one of those moments this week. If the clock had been reversed 6 years I would have had a total meltdown and been a total stress head.

My little boy has had an ongoing issue with his bowels and has had to be admitted to hospital this week. At the same time as he was being admitted my daughter and my husband both came down with a bug and were poorly in bed and I had a diary full of client appointments.

I must admit for a brief period I did go into overwhelm and then I remembered that my thoughts create my reality and that I could choose something different and these are the amazing tools that I have to completely change the outcome.

Who does it belong too? 99.9% of all our thoughts feelings and emotions do not actually belong to us. We are so super aware that we perceive what is going on for other people and just presume that it is ours. So I asked the question ‘who does this belong too?’ and realised my sense of overwhelm actually belonged to my son who was very nervous and anxious about being admitted to hospital.

I asked for the space of me. This may seem like a strange thing to ask for but in asking to have the space of me I allowed my energetic body to expand and was totally present with everything that was occurring and with no judgement just complete allowance and willingness to receive all information that was required. Asking this gave my body so much peace and ease.

Finally I asked ‘what else was possible’ and  ‘who or what could contribute to me?’ By staying in the question and not jumping to conclusion I was allowing different possibilities to come to fruition and that is exactly what happened.

The phone rang and one of my clients asked if she could reschedule. The hospital didn’t have a bed available straight away so my son was not getting admitted until the afternoon and then my father in law came to look after everyone at home while I went to work.

All ease, joy and glory.

If my fixed point of view had been that nothing else was possible and that I had to do it all alone then no doubt that would have been the outcome. Using the simple questions above created a whole new space and resulted in stress free and harmonious day.

My daughter and husband are both much better now and my son is still in the hospital as I write this post but is receiving lots of healing both holistic and medical and will hopefully be home by the weekend or early next week.

X Men Abilities from Wrongness to Strongness

In the film of the same name, X Men are a fictional team of mutants that have super human powers.

What if they are not fictional? What if I was to tell you that you have super human powers. Would you think I was crazy?

Let me explain…..

As beings here on the earth we are all the intrinsically different. We all have capacities, skills that are unique to each of us. Yet, if another person does not understand our ability or capacity or if it doesn’t fit in with societies construction of normal it is then labelled as wrong.

When my son who is now 23 was little he had the most incredible physical strength, way way beyond that of a ‘normal’ 2 year old. The displays of his physical strength were phenomenal. He smashed lots of cots and had to be put into a bed. He then used to pull the mattress off his bed and head butt the bed base until it smashed. He pulled wardrobes over and so much more.

What I came to realise was that he was super aware. His need to keep shaking and banging his head was to stop the voices, to stop his awareness of all the molecules in the universe from communicating with him. Then my beautiful, bright little boy retreated. He stopped communicating and retreated inside his body, his protective shell.

Doctors diagnosed him as being Autistic. Health visitors, community nurses etc told me he would stay this way. “He won’t walk, talk, blah, bah blah…..”

I refused to give up on him. I knew there had to be a way in which he could live in this world and still be him. The X Men films had not even been made in 1996 but if I had had a access to a school for gifted youngsters I would have done everything in my power to send him there.

Fast forward 20 plus years and my son is a totally amazing young man. He can do all the things that I was told he would never do and so much more. He has a capacity for hearing, reading or watching something and then simply knowing how it works. He recently rebuilt and replaced an engine in a car. He is not a mechanic and has never had any training and yet he did it.

Now I know not everyone reading this may be able to rebuild a car, but just stop for a moment and think about what talents and abilities you do have….

Do you think of someone and then the phone rings and its them or you bump into them in the street? Do you sense pain in other people bodies? Are you able to communicate in multiple languages? Are you aware of entities? Do you have prophetic dreams? Or have you cut off  your strongness because society view it as a wrongness?

My beautiful and amazing friend Diva Diaz is facilitating a 3 Day X Men class, 21st-23rd July in Manchester, UK . This class will also be live streamed across the world so you can watch it wherever you may be.

Day 1: ‘The Beginning of a different Possibility’

Days 2 & 3: ‘Disabilities or Abilities’

If you, your child or family member has been given a label and you are looking to move beyond that and to embrace their strongness then this is the class for you.

The Pleasure of Business

I was recently asked the following questions, ‘Can you truly have pleasure in business with no prior business training?’ and ‘Why did you chose to do start a business when you had no previous experience of running a business?’

These simple questions opened up a Pandoras Box for me.

My work is my passion. Creating ease in peoples bodies and lives brings me so much satisfaction and to witness the change in clients health and wellbeing is truly a gift beyond words and yet I don’t have any specific business training. My degree at University was in Criminolgy not Business and Marketing. The training I did as a therapist was undertaken along side my job as a Care Manager and I have  continued to expand my professional qualifications whilst running my own business.

So even though I started my business through sheer determination and passion I have had to learn business skills along side offering my treatments, training courses and my own professional training.

At first learning the skills and techniques of marketing and promotion for my business was challenging. Different social media platforms, networking, graphic design, virtual visibility, websites, blogs, newsletters etc etc. I would like to tell you that learning ‘business & marketing’ was a total breeze for me but that would not be true. However all that changed when I met Christine McIver and business became pleasurable for me when she introduced me to, The Pleasure of Business Al La Carte.

Christine is a Access Consciousness Certified Facilitator, Possibilities Coach, Author and Radio Personality. She runs her own radio network, Inspired Choices. Christine has a proven background in Business Management and Human Resources and with her no nonsense, straight talking approach to business, life and living she totally inspired me to new possibilities with my business and the way I live my life.

However, this unique program stands out from the crowd as it allows you to opt in and learn the areas that you require to develop for your business. Putting you in the creative driving seat for your business. How does it get any better than that?

The program works with you to find, have and create pleasure within your business. No matter where you are at with your business; thinking of starting a business, changing your business, or expanding what you have already created…this program will contribute to that. The great thing about this program is you totally get to choose!
You can choose all 24 weeks, a month or 3, or individual weeks. Totally and completely a la carte.

Quiet Mind

What is a quiet mind?

“I am not my mind – I am far beyond it” Lauren Polly.

I have spent many years trying to quiet my own mind, searching for that stillness, inner peace, nirvana etc.

At times I would have a tantalising few moments of oneness only for it to slip away and be replaced with frustration that I still was chasing an elusive concept.

I teach mediation therapy, host regular guided meditations with amazing results and yet I could not find the same stillness, oneness for myself.

This was because I was buying into the utopian concept of mediation, that it is only possible to quiet the mind when you are completely still, tranquil, meditate for hours while doing yoga positions.

For some people that method works however whenever I attempted to perfect the stillness via ‘traditional’ methods I began to perceive everyone else energy, thoughts. Although I did not know these thoughts didn’t belong to me at that time.

However when my fabulous friend Lauren Polly launched her program ‘30 Days to Quiet Your Mind‘ my connection to my mind, body and my whole life completely changed. A new level of awareness entered my world as I began to realise that ‘I am not my mind’.

Lauren is a ASHA Certified Medical Speech-Language Pathologist, Certified Access Consciousness® Facilitator, Certified Talk to the Entities® Facilitator, a Registered Yoga Instructor and the best selling author of ‘The Other Side of Bipolar‘.

She has shown thousands of people around the world how to engage boldly with themselves, their body and the world, so they create the life they desire.

The 30 day program looks at topics such as:

*What quiets the mind?

*You are aware!

*What is knowing and how can it create more peace of mind?

After completing the 30 days I can honestly say that the techniques Lauren uses have revolusionised the way I deal with everyday situations, my work, family and so much more. I have a sense of peace and ease and also the ability to quiet my mind. How does it get any better than that?

Christmas Insanity

Have you bought into the insanity of “OMG I’ve sooooo much to do for Christmas?” 🎄I am laughing to myself as i write this as I actually started to buy into the craziness myself but thankfully I have some amazing tools that prevented this.

In the days of Christmas past I was SUPER organised!!! Lists a plenty,everything in its place I’m sure you get the picture.

This Christmas…… CHAOS reigns!

Mrs Santa (aka me) hasn’t been proper pressie shopping yet, and it is Christmas Eve a week today! I have no Christmas food bought, the chocolate orange matchmakers I bought weeks ago to ‘save’ jumped into my mouth😂 There have been hardly any cards written and none posted as yet.

This is all due to the fact my whole house has been upside down as my amazing husband has re decorated every room and we have had new flooring fitted and I’ve not been around much as Ive been busy with work and I was away changing my body and my reality in the Right Body For You class with Donnielle Carter and then the 3 Day Body Class with Vladica Djordjevic. You can check out these awesome facilitators and the classes they are creating at www.accessconsciousness.com

Yesterday my sister phoned me in a total stress as the shops were so busy, nothing in stock she wanted blah blah blah. I thought ‘oh no!!! it’s Christmas next week why I have I left everything what am I going to do?!?’

Enter the tools of Access Consciousness and my favourite question at the moment “who does this belong too? Is it mine? Is it someone else’s?” Ahhhh clarity. My body lightened up. These feelings do not belong to me, they are not mine, phew! (when something is true for you it lightens up the feelings in your body)

So this morning instead of shopping in the hustle and bustle and instead of spending hours on the internet I did things the old fashioned way….

I picked up the phone, rang a couple of shops and spoke to real people!!! Not just automated voices or internet chat!!!

Not only were the people incredibly helpful I have all my Christmas gifts sorted and with a discount.

All I need to do is go and pick then up. Yay 💕🎄💕

If, as in previous years I had bought into the pressure and insanity that comes at Christmas I would have been organised but stressed to hell, totally worn out and I’d have spent a fortune.

However due to the chaos that has been going on in my life with re decorating the whole house, floors being fitted etc etc I’ve actually created a totally different outcome. My house looks gorgeous, I’ve got all the gifts sorted in a couple of easy phone calls, I actually saved money and I’m not stressed or totally worn out. How does it get any better than that?

At this time or year when there is so much pressure for everything to be perfect and to have everything in order it is easy to buy into the high emotions and believe that it’s actually you who is stressed.

Why not try the simple tool I suggested and see what lightens up in your world.

If you would like to know more about using the awesome tools of Access Consciousness to change your reality then drop me a message. Im creating new classes all the time and could create one near you.

On a final note I would like to share something I’ve been playing with over the last week or so. When I’ve been out and about I have wished random strangers ‘Merry Christmas’ or given them a big smile. It is so easy to bring a little joy into the life of someone else and just think if we all do this what change could we create on this beautiful planet of ours.

Wishing you all ease, joy and glory

Brightest of blessings

Brightest of blessings to you all.

How is everyones weekend going? Have you got much snow?

Here in Prudhoe we don’t have any at the moment. Not sure if I am pleased about this.

I love the fun factor and beauty of freshly fallen snow, but dislike the walking & driving conditions and the other problems that it brings such as isolation for those who are unable to get out.

Huge apologies from me for neglecting my Facebook page recently. I have not posted very much but I am up to my armpits in building work at the Cottage. 3 weeks on Monday until the open day Eeek!!!

I would love to see you at the Crystal Cottage Monday 8th Feb. I will be open 10-7 for you to pop in at your convenience.

Grand Opening Invite

I will endeavour to be more pro active in my Facebook posting but please bear with me.

However, I am available via message, phone or email if you have any questions or wish to have a chat.

Stay warm, safe and know you are always blessed with love.

No Resolutions Just Positive Intentions

How are your New Year resolutions coming along?

Are you still going to the gym? Stopped smoking or stuck to the healthy eating plan?

Well done and massive congratulations if you have committed to your resolutions, whatever they may be.

However many people fall off the resolution wagon before the end of January. Life just seems to get in the way with stresses, illness, work and so on. 

Many years ago I decided to ditch the New Year Resolutions as if I didn’t stick to them I felt like I had failed and let myself as well as other people down. 

What I decided was that I would have a positive affirmation and set positive intentions but not for the whole year ahead. I broke it down and decided to just focus on the week ahead. One week at a time.

Positive intentions are fabulous. Each week I set myself an intention based on what I want to attract into my life and what I want to achieve. These positive intentions can be as simple as making sure at some point in the week I have some quality ‘me’ time for a long walk or peaceful bubble bath. Or it can be that I set the intention I will achieve a week of healthy eating or walk 10.000 steps a day for 7 days.

If I want to achieve something more difficult then I break that down to fit into my weekly intentions. Setting my intentions in small bite size manageable tasks means that I am more likely to accomplish them and therefore boost my self confidence and promote the feel good hormones.

One other thing that I find vitally important is my mantra. I use Mantras daily to help me feel calm, promote positive thinking and for manifesting all my desires. 

Why not try setting yourself some positive intentions and use a mantra to help with focus and mindset.

Below are a few of my favourite mantras. I hope you find them useful.

Love and blessings for a happy healthy, peaceful, positive and abundant year to you all.

Inner Child: What Things Do You Do To Find Your Inner Child?

Have you lost or forgotten about your inner child?

Who decides when childhood ends and adulthood begin?

When does it stop becoming acceptable to dance and sing as you walk around the shops, or to slide down a banister, jump in a puddle, play on the swings or run the wrong way up a slide?

inner child doesn't grow old

As we approach Christmas it is the perfect time to release your inner child, have some fun and release any inhibitions that you may have.

So getting into the festive spirit I thought I would share with you some of the things I like to do to release my inner child….

Going to see a pantomime. If you feel silly going by yourself take your grandchildren, niece/nephew or go along with friends who have children and if you are really stuck, I will come. I love the panto season, “Oh yes I do.” In fact I love the panto so much that when I married my husband on 27th December 2013 we all went to the panto after the registry service.  

When I wrap Christmas presents I drive my friends crazy as I wrap presents in layers, like a pass the parcel. I put little things in HUGE boxes or I put lots of glitter and sparkles in, so when they open them it snows glitter. 

If we get snow, I adore having a snowball fight or building an Igloo with a snowman to keep guard. 

No snow? No problem. We are never short of rain in the UK and I have the snazziest pair of red wellies which are perfect for jumping in puddles and paddling in mud.

I adore Christmas lights that go up in towns and villages all over the country. Check your local papers for details of Christmas events near you.

Get the board games out and invite friends round for an ‘old school’ evening of fun, away from computers and technology. One of my favourite games is Charades and is pretty much guaranteed to get everyone laughing, especially, if like me, you can’t act for toffee.

Colouring in has never been more popular and is the ideal way to reconnect with your inner child. You can buy adult colouring books in most shops and there are lots of free ones you can download. I have Mandala and Spirit Animal colouring books. They are so therapeutic and I highly recommend giving them a whirl. 

Having a family movie night. My favourites are the Disney Classics, watching these brings back lots of cherished childhood memories but my husband adores Monsters Inc and Despicable Me. It is so great to see him giggle and at times belly laughing at the on screen antics. (just don’t tell him I have let his secret slip haha)

Laughter is one of the best medicines and it is free. Laughing releases the feel good endorphins and lowers your blood pressure.

We are adults a long time, so I say bring out your inner child to play and put a smile in your heart and on your face.
