The importance of following your heart

Why you should follow your heart

If there’s one thing I’m committed to in life and that I feel pretty good at doing, it’s following my heart. I tend to group this closely together with following my intuition because to me, the two are inextricably linked. My intuition always leads me to wonderful people, places, and things that open my heart and mind. And my heart always wants to go where I’m feeling called.

I’ve never been very good at being the overly rational, logical type, though I certainly know what it feels like to prioritise that in life. Since starting up this site however, one of my biggest values – one of my biggest promises to myself – has been to continue following my heart. Life is just too short not to – I’ve written about this before in the past.

I’ve followed my heart all the way around the world. To Iceland, Budapest, Thailand, British Columbia, Freiburg, Bali. Every one of these spots I’ve felt passionately drawn to and without questioning it or disregarding the pull, I went. The experiences in each of these places has touched my heart in a way that I will remember and hold dear to me always.

Following my heart has led to my meeting soul sisters. It’s led to incredible opportunities, teaching meditation, discovering Kundalini and joining the teacher training I’m currently in, eating in a way that’s healing my body. And now it’s led to this journey of a lifetime that I’m about to embark on in one month’s time…

Wanna travel to Bali with me? ♥

Bali goddess & chakra retreat

I have some beautiful, inspiring, light-filled, transformative, from-my-heart-to-yours events coming up! Including wellness workshops in NYC this month(!!) (where has the time gone?!) and an epic goddess chakra retreat to Bali this February with my dear friend, Angela Rauscher. See full details here!

I’m ecstatic about these events, particularly the Bali retreat which is SO aligned with everything I stand for, coach others on, blog about, and just basically what I feel I’m here to give to the world. I want to guide and teach others how to access their joy, tune into their intuition, raise their vibrations, uplift their health, and live the best life possible! THIS I feel so strongly about (and if you follow me on insta, you know how much I adore Bali!)

Afraid of being JUDGED? Read this

Are you afraid of being judged?

Last year I was writing an email to an old friend of mine who I hadn’t seen in a long time. I had recently gotten back into the habit of blogging regularly again and had set up a few automated things to promote my writing more – one of these being a link to my blog in my gmail account. It had seemed like a good move at the time… and then I soon quickly forgot it was even there…

I finished up my email and pressed SEND without thinking much about it – and suddenly realised to my sheer horror that I had just unintentionally sent this friend the link to my blog.

Horror and panic ensued.

It’s not that I was trying to hide my writing from him or the fact that I was a blogger. I just didn’t feel ready to share my words with everyone yet. My blog posts are raw; they’re honest and revealing and I tend to write in a way that reads a bit like a journal entry. This is just my personal style and way I communicate best. I felt fine with sharing these posts with strangers and people looking for that inspiration in their own lives but wasn’t fully prepared for it to go beyond that just yet.

The self-defeating thoughts were racing through my mind: What will he THINK? I probably sound so dumb! So girly and naive, such a dreamer.

What was I so afraid of?

How I healed my body – the secret to my success

How I healed my body & The wellness mentorship program

A couple months ago back in January I woke up with MAJOR insomnia one night. Not something I often experience and I spent the first hour trying various methods to soothe myself back to sleep. When that didn’t work and I was pretty much resigned to being up for the rest of the night, I asked myself a question: Is there something I need to know here? Is there something this is trying to show me?

I had a burning desire to write for some reason so I pulled out my journal… and proceeded to write the outline for what is now my new coaching program!

I wrote and wrote and wrote that night… I couldn’t stop. And since that night in January I’ve been designing and refining, bubbling over with creative flow, inspiration and ideas to make this the best coaching program I can possibly think of – the wellness program that I WISH would have been available to me when I was struggling with so many health issues. I’ve made a couple announcements on my newsletter about this already and a mention or two on insta… and now the time has come to release this labour of love out into the blogosphere!

Often when people find out I self-healed from a condition where I couldn’t walk, they want to know what exactly I did.

How was I able to clear this out of my body when doctors couldn’t figure it out? What was my secret? Well in a nutshell, it really boils down to two big things:
