Feelings – neither Right nor Wrong

If you think that you don't have any feelings think again. You would be amazed at what lurks beneath the surface ! When we were young we had no problem expressing our feelings, just think of any 2 year old you know. Then someone eg parent , communicated to us which feelings were 'right' or 'wrong'.

How deep is your listening ?

Do you nurture all aspects of ‘you’ ?

The question posed is whether all aspects of who you are (mind, body soul/spirit ) are in harmony with each other.

Making the ‘right’ decision

It is important when we are at a major crossroads in our lives or career, to take time out to analyse our situation, where we want to go and identify and explore all the options before deciding on the way forward. Too often in situations that require us to make important  decisions we move too fast, before having a good look…

What is going on in your internal chatter box ?

This article is about self - talk : those conversations we have with ourselves, which whether we realise it or not, greatly influence the way we act in the world. This in turn influences the shape of our lives, relationships and careers. When we feel 'stuck' it is often because of the ingrained and programmed way we dialogue with ourselves.…
