Coming home after a retreat or workshop – what now?

It’s when we come home from a retreat or a workshop that the ‘REAL’ work starts. I love this post by Dr Joe Dispenza Coming Home: Tips for Integrating Your New Personality Into Your Old Personal Reality Coming Home: Tips for Integrating Your New Personality Into Your Old Personal Reality So many people tell me that the hardest part of going to an event is leaving it. The reason why is because when you return to your everyday life, that’s when the real work begins… the work being the process of integrating your new personality into your old past-present personal reality. With that said, here are some practical tips on how to do just that—although, these tips apply to any time when you want to make real, lasting changes in your life. Most importantly, do the work and do it every day. Don’t make excuses to not do the work. If you keep reminding yourself of who you want to be, while at the same time staying conscious of who you no longer want to be, eventually your personal reality will transform to match your new personality. Never stop learning. Fill your brain with knowledge and review the information you’ve learned regularly so you can continue to assign meaning as to what you’re doing and why.

The beautiful healing power of being heard

The beautiful healing power of being heard

Yesterday I took part in a profound healing journey. It was a closed group call of a group of women, facilitated by Bennie Naude. Some women I know, others only through skype and sessions we have shared over the ethers. The purpose was to be witnessed as we shared a story. It was an interesting experience as my original intention was purely to hold space and witness other’s stories. Yet, the night before I had such a vivid dream about something that happened more than 20 years ago and was so triggered by events of the morning that I jumped in and shared my story. What I experienced was so beautiful. A group that held me as I talked. At no point did anyone try to fix it, make me feel better, help me see a different perspective or try to change the way I felt. I felt heard I felt loved I felt acknowledged and accepted. The group presence was powerful enough for the healing to start taking place. A story that I had not told anyone for over 20 years was heard and I felt a weight drop from my belly. Yes, I felt raw. Also, vulnerable and exposed. That wasn’t comfortable. But I also trusted this group to keep the contract we agreed to at the beginning of the session. And then I had the opportunity and privilege to listen to others. It was an amazing morning. In a group presence there is a value of sharing and being heard. And in a group there is an opportunity for deep healing to happen. Being witnessed and witnessing...

Honouring the Self

Honouring the Self

Of all the judgements that we pass in life, none is as important as the one we pass on ourselves, for that judgement touches the very centre of our existence.

…No significant aspect of our thinking, motivation, feelings, or behaviour is unaffected by our self evaluation…

Be Born Again – Literally

Be Born Again – Literally

Did you know that every cell in your body is replaced every seven years? It’s true—at the cellular level, the oldest you get is about seven years old. I remember years ago hearing Deepak Chopra speak about this. He said that the only reason we keep creating the same body—or one that seems to deteriorate with age—is that we keep thinking the same thoughts over and over again.
