So my darlings, we are in countdown. Two weeks to go before my first Soul Reset of the year and this new decade begins and it is going to be wonderful. I am still in love with the fact that we are at the beginning of a new decade, with all the wisdom and experience we garnered over the last decade in our bags. The horizon is lit with opportunity. It's a blank canvas. The sky above our heads is wide open with possibilities and that sense of new, both delicate and rooted hangs in the air to refresh our hearts over and over again. Yes, we are in the New. And that's why I run this Reset. Hopefully we have settled into the new year a little by now. The resolutions we began with might not have taken form yet. The intentions we had for this new year might not have been activated like we wanted. We might still be feeling our feet. It always takes me a while to find my way in a new year. I spend January trying to catch up and say goodbye to the last. Wholesome goodbyes always open up meaningful and fulfilling hellos. So February feels a more reasonable and realistic time to locate the song and hopes in my heart for this new land and time I find myself in. And so we have it. Thirty days of feeding our hearts and minds with love, self-acceptance and inspiration, clearing the way for new adventures and meaningful moments, a passage through the year that proves we are truly alive and on fire with our dreams and our truths by the end of it. We focus on ten principles of self-love gearing towards sowing the right kind kind of seed into the soil of our hearts to keep us going the whole year through. I provide reading, audios, poetic meditations, soulful affirmations, activities and journal prompts. We have a group on Facebook where we meet regularly and create a circle of sisterhood to encourage one another through the thirty days. It's soulful, it's deep, it's light, it's healing, it's empowering. You might need another kick-start to the year or your heart might need some encouragement. Maybe your soul is thirsty for some soulful reminders of your purpose and the possibilities hovering over you that if you grasp will get your eyes sparkling with life again. You might be like me and really want to take this year into your hands and make it your own, experience it as both a gift and an extension of all the dreams you carry inside. Whatever it is you need, there's a huge chance you will find it in this ongoing workshop of sorts. It's magic. My Soul Resets have become an anchor for me over these past 18 months. And at this time of year my heart needs this kind of anchoring and infusion of self-love the most. So come join me and hundreds of other women that walked with me last year. You won't regret it and your heart will feel full and soft and impassioned by the end. Follow the link below to enrol. See you on 14th ###

Girls often feel stressed because they overestimate the difficulty of a situation and underestimate their ability to deal with it. When they avoid a situation, they miss the opportunity to correct that perception and recognize their own strength.

A great 2020 Challenge for families! Have your child choose a TED Talk that speaks to them and encourage dialogue over a meal with other family members. These growth set talks are inspiring to many families and allowing more conversations to occur in families about tough topics teens face today.

This has been a BIG topic of conversation in our company as well as with the schools we serve. Hope you find the info helpful. Thank you Jennifer for posting:)

Take your time and feel the pain deeply, understand what's happening in the situation, and slowly come out the other side using the teachings you have learned to walk into your life free and confident in what you want and who you are.
Working through pain is not easy, so be patient with yourself, love yourself completely, and know you are worthy of the life you dream of.

Traumatic Events in the past often bleed into our present and onto others....

"What most people do not realize is that trauma is not the story of something awful that happened in the past, but the residue of imprints left behind in people’s sensory and hormonal systems." Survivors of trauma often do not feel safe in their bodies. Yoga can help regain this trust. Watch this video as Bessel van der Kolk does a much better job explaining it than I do. Side note: He is my next obsession. Finished reading The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma and it completely changed my practice.
