Living Life With Meaning

As the moon waxes, moving to her fullest, I too move with her, moving to my fullest, ripening the most nourished egg, ready to be fertilised, to grow life! 

How incredible is that?...New Life!

This creative energy for me is no longer a new baby in the physical form of a child, but one of new energy in some other way.

Each cycle can be very different in the waxing energy. Sometimes there is so much creative energy building as I water these potential new seeds and other times I can be shedding old constructs as the seedlings begin to pierce through into full bloom!
 
A brief on our Inner Seasons....
The inner season of winter (new/dark moon) gives us the opportunity to surrender and rejuvenate as we shed ( the lining of our uterus) what we no longer need ( that has come form the autumn phase of letting go) for growth of this woman. Spring is the building of this new lining, watering of new seeds and the new energy is emerging. Summer (ovulation and full moon) is the...

Baby Atticus and KC Dechaud's Birth Story

Uncategorized May 04, 2019

My Journey with KC didn’t just start with her asking me to be her birth Doula. It started 3 and a half years ago when she came to me for support in a very challenging time in her life. Since then I have watched her grow from strength to strength. KC has this warrior energy; she doesn't leave any coin unturned (so to speak) and she faces everything head on. When fear rises, she meets it and uses it as a source of power, it becomes her strength.

Her journey through pregnancy and labour was no different.

KC researched and study as much as she could to learn about her new experience- pregnancy, labour, birth and postpartum. I also shared tools of support for labour and birth with her and Ryan (her partner) during their pregnancy. KC was so prepared, that Ryan could not have been any other way, even if he tried. He was on the KC train and more than happy to take the ride! I saw early on that these two were going to make a great team and Ryan's calm, stable and strong, yet flexible...

Anxiety, Change, Magic, Love & Gracie

Uncategorized Apr 25, 2019

There is always opportunity to practice, especially when you have  children! They are your greatest teachers, supporting you to wake up. By popping your illusion, time and time again!


My little Gracie was my teacher on "right view" (usually the 1st teaching on the noble eight fold path of Buddhism) and Emptiness (usually one of the last teachings on the eightfold path) yesterday.

As some of you may know ( from insta posts) changes have happened in our family with my husband returning to work and me continuing to follow my passion in my work. Mumma is now doing the school drop off and pick-up and 3 days a week Gracie is joining Lucy and her big sister (Zara who now works for Goodstart) for after school activities.



Gracie has never done well with change, even when you prepare her weeks or months in advance. It's in her make-up or karma. She is a deep introvert by nature, sensitive to the world, has difficulty regulating her emotions (to the worlds standards...

What Would Love Do?

When someone triggers pain within you from their choice of words or actions, it hurts. It takes LOVE within you to rise out of that hurt and respond from love. When we react from anything else other then love we experience more pain, more hurt and more non-virtuous karma keeps on rising.

Nothing good comes from throwing more of the same back at someone.

It takes wisdom, awareness and strength to respond from love in the midst of deep hurt. The biggest transformations happen within you when you hand it over to Love. A warmth and tenderness moves over you, as the awareness sees the bigger picture.

When love steps in, this is how love would respond

~ Love honours both my pain and the others pain. Love knows none of this is personal.

~ Love knows that this person is suffering, experiencing pain himself or herself to act towards you in this way.

~ Love knows that this person hasn’t got the awareness or wisdom yet to see their pain. So therefore it gets projected.

~ Love knows he or...

Love In Action

Uncategorized Nov 15, 2018

 

There is something very unique about supporting the birth of one of your family members. Your heart melts in so many ways that I find it hard to put into words. I have been sitting with the experience for a week, allowing the space to let the words come. I can’t quiet get it out of my heart and into words, or is it I really don’t want too?

There is a part of me that likes it that way. Before all the labels come and describe the indescribable. In reality I won’t be able to describe it. It will just be a group of words that will be pointing to the experience of Love in Action.

So here we go…

My Brother Scott

From the moment Scott and Nikki were pregnant a new level of love opened deep within in me, for them. Although my relationship with Scott has always been strong, and I have been through many experiences of highs and lows with him. This was different. He was now going to be a father. A dream that he has had as long as I can remember.  A dream at...

Creating Space

Creating Space

I have been enjoying the holidays, the break in routine, and to live moment to moment, without a schedule. I have been fortunate to have spontaneous moments of being by myself, like today. I got to go to the beach for a walk, swim and float in the ocean. 

So divine.

As a mother of 3, I can’t tell you how incredible those moments of space are. These days I take them when I can. It’s rare that I get a few hours, let alone a whole day for myself, so when I am gifted with these moments throughout the day I am so grateful, followed closely by breathing life in deeply and completely!

On the Dharma path, practice happens in these precious moments of space, alone with all that is arising. It also happens during the chaos and busyness of life. However, if we have not taken the space to be alone with self to practice the dharma (during those times of chaos and craziness) we will only find confusion, fear and suffering.
