What if LOVE is the way?

My love, what if love is the way? I have no idea what I’m going to write here, I only know that this is what is coming through. Recently there have been a few situations where I felt fear and anger but after feeling that on my own, I responded with love.  And it felt so good!

How I did it was I went to the beach for a walk after journaling out my feelings. From there I was trying to get to a place of love and peace but still felt the tight ball in my gut so I started to walk and, rather than saying affirmations for what I am calling in right now, the only thing I could bare to repeat is “I love you X”. X being the person’s name who had incited the fear. And as I walked, I continued to say I love you and I really felt it. Because all we are under our hard exteriors is five-year-old children wanting to be loved and accepted.

Loving this person and drowning out the fear felt expansive and so hard to put into words but in the end, powerful and mature and effective. When fearful thoughts crossed my mind as I went about my day, I repeated “I love you X” and felt it. When the opportunity came to communicate with this person, again I responded with love and I will keep on doing this. I’m not always mature or even tempered but I’m certainly a lot better than before and this situation certainly turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as always.

What if the feminine is the way?

Friend, the feminine is a topic that I have not written about for five years or so. I had the big brain surgery, the breast cancer had metastasised, and for a long while I wondered if I was wrong and had been mistaken in my beliefs when, actually, She was taking me deeper.

The way, as written by the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tsu, is living in harmony with nature, in the flow, where nothing is rushed but all is accomplished. The feminine is flow. The feminine is nature. We all have a masculine and feminine side, like the yin yang symbol. The masculine is linear and one of doing, The feminine is one of being. The ebb and flow. And we, through our illnesses and economics and drama, are being invited to rest. How can we do less? That’s the point we have all come to. Isn’t it?

Two weeks ago I came across this video and it made me realise that the steamrolling of my life was the Divine Feminine at play. The feminine is about slowing down and being here now. The feminine is fun and enjoyment. But, just like the Hindu Goddess Kali, She will destroy in order to create again. Just let go. Listen to your heart. What do you love? What is it saying? It is safe to rest. The feminine is the darkness. Can you sit in it? The feminine is intuition.  The body. Love it. Sleep. Listen in.

What if going slowly is the way?

Friend, the year is 2011 and I am working three days a week as an English as a second language teacher, teaching the Cambridge Advanced Exam course. On my four days off, including the weekends, I am getting up by 7am to write for 2-3 hours, working on Wonderlust. And apart from this I’m being a domestic goddess, taking care of the house, making some art to hang up, taking a class, learning German (or learning French when I’m supposed to be learning German), hanging out with my husband and riding my bike around town. I have read Slow and I am living it.

Life is good. Life is meant to be good. Last week I had a realisation that I had been filling my time too much and not allowing it to be easy again. I had been busy and keeping myself out of alignment with this. So I slowed down again, did the minimum, remembered what was absolutely essential and did only this. Other than that I didn’t schedule my time and I enjoyed it.

What if life is meant to be easy? What if going slowly is the way? What if we remember this? And allow Life to fill in the rest. What if that is the secret? I have been reading Amanda Frances’s Rich As Fuck and applying it, doing the inner work, being here now. Feeling good. Following intuition. Last week I didn’t know what to write about for you today but I followed an inkling, a hunch, to go look up a few people on Instagram and then the idea to write about going slowly came. Allowing the water to clear, moving with presence, having fun. What if that is the way?

Femininity + Beauty in St Tropez

12239515_10153650263711885_4835625114010117769_n

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.
