We are so much better at causing pain, than feeling pain

“Sit with the pain until it passes, and you will be calmer for the next one” ~ Naval RavikantThe world is full of very wounded people.Some wounded people choose to work on their pain to heal it, but many more people choose not to.When you have a low tolerance for distress, it makes it harder to sit with emotional pain, which needs to be done to be able to heal it.Instead, many choose a path of avoiding emotional pain through…

You’re not a mess. You’re a feeling person in a messy world.

  Last week I had a few conversations where people spoke a lot about their anxiety and depression.   What I’ve noticed is that sometimes we pathologise feelings that are a normal response to an abnormal situation.   “You are not a mess.

It’s quite a hilarious convo at times where we even chat about missing Yoni eggs…

A beautiful healing moment

I had the most beautiful visit to a new client yesterday. Initially I went to her house for a cuppa and catch up as she had been referred to me for coaching. We had a lovely chat and she decided to sign up for a 3 month coaching package. She was also keen to try an energy healing and I always travel everywhere with my Reiki table in the back so we did an impromptu treatment. At the start of…
