A City in Flames I felt helpless sitting behind my laptop, out in the Karoo countryside, watching my beloved Mother City burn. Cape Town has been on fire for the past 5 days and the trail of devastation this raging inferno has wreaked is insurmountable. Thank goodness for the rain that came early on Wednesday morning […]
“Sci-fi has never really been my bag. But I do believe in a lot of weird things these days, such as synchronicity. Quantum physics suggests it’s possible, so why not?” — John Cleese We all hit junctions — those dreaded forks in the road — at certain epochs of our lives. The thing that frightens us […]
“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” — Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll) Go Easy on the Mundane Life can be wonderful when you’re a dreamer. Life can be even more wonderful when you are a dreamer and a doer! Nothing trips us up more that boredom or monotony. As […]
Why We Need Creativity Not only do you as an individual benefit from lateral and imaginative thinking and then manifesting creation through your skill or expertise, but society benefits too. Can you imagine the world without art, music, literature, hout-cuisine, architecture, landscaping and a host of other delectable contributions that others have provided since time immemorial? We use […]
The Human Condition How often do we face troubling, irksome, unfortunate, gob-smacking, gut-wrenching, negative situations? A lot? Sometimes? Is it something you fear coming up against? Do you find yourself worrying about potential ‘what if’s’? Whatever the answer — we all experience the downs of life as well as the ups. It’s natural and all part […]
“To dream by night is to escape your life. To dream by day is to make it happen.” — Stephen Richards I was listening to a Gregg Braden talk recently — he was outlining how to use the Law of Attraction in the most efficacious manner. It immediately turned light bulbs on in the deepest recesses […]
Sick of Getting Sick? “Don’t live to eat — eat to live. Don’t let any thing come between you, your ideal body and an ecstatic life.” Is it just me or is sickness and disease on the rise? Just in my circle of friends and acquaintances, 20 year olds are being diagnosed with cancer and healthy 50 […]
The Remedy for Everything at the Tip of Your Tongue I want to share an ancient mantra/prayer with you and it is simply to sound out the word HU (pronounced like Hugh or hue). It is used to harmonize and retune the very atoms of your body. When I first started vocalizing this practice, my […]
New Year, Blah Blah… “When you map a way to your success by gradually achieving your markers, then you are proactively making new LIFE resolutions.” We’ve just entered our first week of the new year and I bet a lot of the best-intentioned resolutions you made have already been kicked to the curb. Was it […]
“It’s no good staying where it’s comfortable if you are craving the extravagant!” Old Thinking, Old Results Let’s cut the crap here and go straight for the jugular: You can’t expect new results using old techniques. New Years resolutions are tiring out nearly everyone on this planet (just check your Facebook feeds for proof) and the […]
System Reboot I don’t know about you, but I’ve kind of slipped off the bandwagon lately with regards to ‘me’ time. I don’t know if its got to do with moving house and having an endless list of things to do or being in the midst of the silly season but quiet, reflective time is […]
I’m not going to be talking about the kind of magic that sees rabbits being pulled out of hats or pretty pink-clad fairy princesses riding on unicorns pulling candy-floss out of their bottoms. No. Magic exists, it just might not be in the shape or form of what we’re told magic is. Magic is […]
“You can always alter your reality at any time.” Owning Your Power You’re probably familiar with the saying ‘what you think you create’ but how can you seriously filter every bad thought? Surely it’s a struggle worthy of giving up on before you even get started? Certainly not. There’s only one person responsible for what […]
“A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success.” — Bo Bennett The Fear of Rejection Rejection is not something we take to kindly. Rejection, for most, is something to be avoided at all costs and if encountered we tend to slip into self-doubt, shame, self-flagellation and a variety of […]
