Hello lovely!

How are you?

With the sad events in the world this week I was inspired by this quote…

“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”

There are still many many beautiful humans on this planet and much beauty. Still, if you have been angered and hurt by this or touched in any way, I send my love to you.

Today I am writing about romancing the soul…

Jacaranda Tree Perth

November is the season when the Jacaranda Trees are in full bloom here and this morning I am off to soak up the lilac beauty at a festival in their honour and then to cleanse and activate this feminine body at a Tigress yoga afternoon with its founder and creator, Devashi Shakti.

It feels like a day devoted to femininity and beauty.

Do you allow yourself this?

One of my clients in the Healthy + Powerfully Feminine group program recently thanked me for making it ok to enjoy beauty because she has grown up being taught that it was unnecessary and frivolous.

Why do we need beauty?

Exposing ourselves to beauty on a daily basis helps maintain good mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being.

Beauty brings consolation in sorrow, affirmation in joy and the sense that life is worth living.

Beauty also helps us to feel good and anything that makes us feel good, raises our vibration and enables us to manifest our desires more easily as well.

This week I have been thinking quite a bit about the beauty of St Tropez. Two years ago I spent a month of summer in one of my favourite locations, the South of France. I’d been staying in St Maxime and decided to take the boat across to St Tropez for the day.

I didn’t know what to expect besides the rich and beautiful people and the fake tans that had been named after the place. When I arrived I’d felt muddled and out of the flow. I wrote…

“Feeling out of the flow is confusing. I can’t make decisions. I have so much to say but I don’t know where to start. Things feel difficult. I numb out. I waste time in front of the mirror. I try to pull the gel off my toenails. Hypnotised. Suspended. I eat things I don’t want to eat. I wonder what I am doing – now, today, ever.”

I followed my intuition and found a landscape filled with natural beauty. Then the energy of the place started to take over…

“I walk towards the cemetery along the shore. I stop to take photos of the flowers – the big bright pink bush with the backdrop of blue sea and the quiet white and purple growing out of the cracks in the pavement.

I continue along the sandy sometimes shaded path – with the water lapping and crashing at the edges below. Sublime nature. Silenced by awe, I walk and walk until the sun is ready to set and I turn back.

In town, I climb a hill and arrive in time to take a couple’s sunset picture. I see a tourist painting the landscape in his book. I give directions to a husband & wife driving with a baby in the back and I realise they are deaf and reading my lips and hands.”

Everything feels like something.

A barking dog and a bougainvillea.

The quiet courtyard behind the restaurants where the waiters are smoking.

A teacher dancing to the street musicians with abandon while her adolescent students look on.

The cool boutiques and the quiet cemetery by the sea.

Vibrant piles of ice-cream and the crispy cold rosé.

The smooth cobbled streets and the peeling pastel buildings.

Beauty.

Everything feels like something.

I come back to watch the big boats and the people in the port. The boats have a view of the setting sun and the people watch the boats.

When I arrive at the upstairs bar, I am told the free table I have seen on the balcony is reserved for a guest of the hotel. Okay. I go to the bathroom and when I come out the waitress comes to tell me a table has just been freed.

So I sit on the balcony with a view of the setting sun feeling like lady luck and making a meal out of the complimentary bar snacks. I watch a party on a yacht and investigate the details. I write in colour.

Just as I am about to catch the boat back across to Saint Maxime, I see Mr Gangnam Style fanning himself on a yacht and take a photo that turns out clearly. It’s the little things. I smile all the way home.

Everything feels like something.

Beauty.

Getting in the flow, delighting in the unexpected.

This is the way I choose to breathe.

Feeling in the flow I am open. I am seeing & receiving. I am quiet but looking out. I see the signs and I follow them. I know. I am sure – not always but it is okay. There is time to think.

There is oneness in my encounters. I have conversations with strangers – sometimes meaningful, sometimes just happy ones with shop assistants telling me about their products, which still means a lot.

I am attracted and repelled. I observe. I use a little or a lot but it is enough. There is pleasure in the little things. Things start to make sense. It is all for a reason.

Everything feels like something.

Beauty on a cellular level.

Romancing the soul in St Tropez.

Present, peaceful and free.

Surrendered and serendipitous.

This is available for all of us at any moment – right here in Perth or wherever you are in the world.

Beauty.

Everything means something.
