(image) Last week I was fortunate to attend a photography basics course. In the past I've done quite a few short photography courses, up to a mid to advanced level, so I was unsure what I'd get out of it. But the simplicity of the teacher's hints was magic. Here... Continue reading

I've always battled with eczema and chronic allergies, and since I was a kid I've been on steroids, antihistamines, asthma medication, a trillion topical creams et al. Some of it helped, a lot didn't. It wasn't until I became an adult and started looking into nutrition and health that I... Continue reading

(image) (My desk is not nearly as cute as this) My day job is a pretty bland, structured environment, and sometimes it can be hard not to let all that paper pushing and report writing get me down. Timed tea breaks, telephone call logs, no music. A poster that says... Continue reading

About 8 years ago I saw a psychic and a tarot reader within a couple of weeks of one another. Now, they definitely weren't top notch by any means - in fact, I think one of them had a fold up table in a shopping centre - but what they... Continue reading

Yesterday I was blessed to spend the day out at Seaworld. I love Seaworld, and aquariums, and swimming and snorkelling! I just love being close to sea creatures. Underwater is so quiet and serene, complex, beautiful and vivid. Snorkelling along a tropical reef is utterly magical. Seeing dolphins playing in... Continue reading

Today I started to realise my 'higher self'. It's a concept that Jessica Mullen talks about frequently on her lifestream and until today, quite frankly, I didn't really get it. I mean, I accepted it, as something other people could have, but not me. I certainly didn't have a higher... Continue reading

(images from all over the interwebs - sorry I didn't keep the links!) So...this is my current vision board. I LOVE to create a vision board! A vision board is a powerful way to visually express your wants, ideas and aims. It could be valid for the next 12 months,... Continue reading

(image) Last week, without consciously realising it, I was really craving contact with my female friends and family. I spent time with a different bunch of girls almost every day and it was so fun, uplifting and rejuvenating. I got to speak about topics important and lighthearted, laugh, confide, listen,...

(image) I've found that a lot of times when I'm in a terrible mood, it's because I'm annoyed at myself. Of course, there are plenty of times when others annoy the you-know-what out of me. But those times still fall under that 'annoyed at myself' banner because I know that... Continue reading

(image) From my primitive research, I've found out that the practice of smiling while meditating is an ancient Asian tradition. I didn't know about this when I began practicing it, it just felt good! And that's the whole purpose, right? Smiling meditation is just like regular meditation, but easier and... Continue reading

(image) Life design is a fascinating and addictive topic. By it's very nature it encompasses anything and everything you've always wanted, and promises the tools to make it happen. It is the antidote to cynicism, disbelief, negativity and 'settling' for whatever falls in your lap. ask, believe, receive The basic... Continue reading

(image) After years of food issues, diets, therapy, reflection and reading, I am now aware of a simple but insightful concept: how we feel about ourselves directly affects how and what we eat. Sounds obvious, right? I'm not just talking about getting stood up and eating a bucket of ice... Continue reading
