I Survived Two Days Without TV

Would you rather a robot cleaner or a trip to Mars? Two days into my TV detox these are the kind of thoughts I’m having. Because why are the billionaires trying to get to Mars (is it ego?) when they would do a bigger service to humanity by focusing on those robot house keepers?! Second question, is there such a thing as a single entendre?

It started like this, on Friday night I watched a whole lot of YouTube videos on someone living the simple life, all white and beige and minimalist in Maui, and also a lot on live-streamers in China, who are being trained to put out their shows like factory hens. Both were fascinating. Live streaming in China is huge and men donate to see women chat or eat or sing but it’s not a sexual thing. One manager said it’s closely linked to their cultural history because people used to perform in the streets for money, like busking I guess.

I also watched something on hostesses and hosts in Japan. The top of his game host made almost half a million a year, much more than the highest paid hostess. His job involved meeting a woman on the street and then going on a date, where he would tell her about his profession and invite her to come to the club where he worked. She would then, he said, get work on the side (like as a prostitute), in order to pay for his drinks at the club and earn him money. The point of which is to feel the ‘love feeling’.

Coming home on Saturday night, I watched some semi-boring things on TV and during the night a plan hatched that it might be good to give up TV (including YouTube) for a month and see what happens. The next day we went for a 23km bike ride along the coast and then came home to a no-TV world. I’d gotten quite hooked on that dopamine fix. It felt strange. I read a book for a few hours and then just sat there before bed.

By the second day, I was already loving it. It felt so peaceful. In the evening I lay in bed and looked at the sky out the window, noticing that my mind was still trying to do things. Practise being present. But you’re still doing something. Then at night my boyfriend and I sat and talked before dinner. And when we came to read our books, he asked if I wanted to read this short story he had told me about, finding it funny.

So I read it and then, looking at Jean Lynn, the writer, her website and the articles she’d written, I found pieces of myself and what I strove to be, the quirkiness, before I became a coach. It was how I started Wonderlust, the novel and the blog. It was the way I used to read Frankie magazine, ride my bike and make things for the house. It was the books I used to read and the Melbourne-style I craved. It was something I’ve been wondering about lately.

With so much love,

Which Power Drama Are You?

When I was 16, I got with this guy and, as was my way, became obsessed with him. The next weekend I left for a month-long French exchange to La Reunion island, next to Mauritius. As part of the trip we did a hike down a volcano with the whole group of 30 or so students from across Perth. When they called out a girl’s name with the same surname as my obsession, my ears pricked up and my heart leaped. So I went to talk to her and we walked through the jungle, making our way down the volcano, together.

This was when she told me of Celestine Prophesy, a book that had changed her life and reflected the environment we were in. Over the years I did think to read it but it was only seeing it on Helle Weston’s instagram in 2017, aged 38, that I actually did go out and get it. Psychiatrist Carl Jung describes synchronicity as a meaningful coincidence and James Redfield, the author, says it is the first stage of  spiritual awakening.

The way the book came into my life was synchronistic. That guy I got with, I hadn’t been into, but he was pursuing me, and it turned out he was friends with some family friends and we had known each other in my early childhood. Maybe if not for all this, I wouldn’t have heard of the book then. When I wanted to track it down at age 38, I had the inkling to go to a particular second hand book store on the way to have my photo taken.

Following the brain surgery, I had been asked by someone who’d been on my Healthy + Powerfully  Feminine course if she could take my photo for this series she did. She asked me to pick a spot in Perth I loved and I could only think of Green Space Reserve, a secluded grass embankment by the river. It was only when I opened the book, to something aptly describing issues with my ex-husband, that I realised it would have been my eighth wedding anniversary that day and I was exactly in the place where we’d gotten married.

All this to say, which power drama are you? Redfield describes four that match. Learnt from childhood, as a way of gaining power, we play out either the Interrogator/ Aloof or the Intimidator/Victim. If someone is interrogating, the other gains power by being aloof. Or interrogating back. Or two people may both act aloof. Likewise, if one person is intimidating, the other may act like a victim to gain power. Or may be intimidating too. Or both could act like victims. Immediately I thought of an ex playing the victim, which meant that I must be an intimidator too!

I knew I’d acted like a victim at times, till I manifested breast cancer at 34, then read Carolyn Myss’s Why People Don’t Heal and How They Can, and stopped it. But I hadn’t thought of myself as playing the intimidator. Alas, it was true. I could shout and criticise, but more often shut myself off, build walls around myself, cut people off. “I don’t need you” is also a form of intimidation. The real way to gain power is to love, Redfield says. And though, I definitely believe we still need boundaries and standards, becoming conscious to this pattern of behaviour was definitely a step in the right direction.

What power drama are you?

With so much love,

My Best Relationship Advice

My Love,

It feels scary to write this. My best relationship advice? Ego says, “You’re no expert!” No. But I am a keen student. The truth is that I’ve spent the last five years  learning about and observing dating and relationships. So I am offering you some of what I’ve learnt today.

1. Go to sleep angry. The experts may disagree but for me this works. In law of attraction terms, we receive thoughts according to our vibrational reality. So when we are tired we have lower quality thoughts. Plus, when we hold a thought for 17 seconds, it gains momentum, and attracts thoughts of the same frequency. That’s why transformation gurus like Tony Robbins swear as a pattern interrupt. We’d only have to focus on something else for 17 seconds, like our lovely comforting pillow, to create that for ourselves. In the morning, we wake with new perceptions and fresh thoughts.

2. Feel your feelings and express them. Realise that the other person is most likely doing their best too. Don’t assume they have bad intentions. Communication is key. For a guy, they talk best while doing other things, like having a beer or playing golf. People are also more open to suggestions when you see the good in them also. Start with something like “This isn’t your fault. It’s just that I noticed..” or “I really appreciate how you.. and also it would be great if we could..” Saying we makes it less blameful. These are techniques of a master negotiator. I know. I’m not perfect at it either. But still.

3. Communicate your desires and needs. Otherwise we become resentful and then that seeps out or explodes at inappropriate times. The subconscious mind is seeking an outlet for these suppressed emotions. But then we hate ourselves and wonder why we are so angry. Learning to communicate my emotions and what I want has been such a game changer for me. It’s made me a much happier person and way better to be around. That’s why I created the Empower guide to help.

4. Learn how your partner experiences love and give it. Your man may protest, but if you don’t know what his love language is, you can take this test to find out. Learn what yours is too or, even better, get him to ask you. Yes he may hate it but tough. This is important to you. Express it. My love language is words of affirmation. If he forgets? You can remind him. Not all the time, just occasionally. And yes you can teach an old dog new tricks.

5. See the positive. I don’t mean blindly see the positive as I used to do. That might mean you make yourself susceptible to narcissists and players. But if you are in a happy and/or committed relationship, by making lists of their positive aspects, you begin to see it more. You could even list out their pros and cons and you’ll probably find that the pros is much longer than the cons.

There you go my dear, as I said, I’m not a qualified expert but these are five tips that have helped me. Relationships are such a key area that can lift us up or bring us down like little else. And the crazy thing is, we don’t usually learn how to be good at it. But we can.  Learning to manifest too has been so helpful in creating a constructive relationship and in becoming the person able to receive it.

With so much love,

Mireille xx

Why Shit Happens.. Even When You’re A Manifesting Ninja!

My love,

I’m feeling really excited because I’ve finally finished Loving! It’s a transformational guide about loving yourself, loving your life and manifesting. I wanted to include all I would include if I ran a course again. I first learnt about the power of the mind and energy to manifest when I was 24. But actually I started doing it much younger, from age eight, when I started dancing.

Too tired to practise, I’d lie in bed and rehearse the steps in my head. Then when I went to do it, I’d be able to as if I had been physically practising. Then when I was 12 I won the cross-country. I hadn’t been so great at athletics till the year before. Dancing 13 hours a week made me super fit. But there was one other girl who was better than me at the cross country. I prayed and visualised winning, just like with dancing (aka imagining), and I did.

When I started my coaching business in 2014, I’d teach manifesting through my course, workshops and private coaching. But after the breast cancer metastasised, I got shy about it. I felt like I’d failed, when really it was just that Life had more to teach me.

During that period I had off, I learned about the art of simplicity and organisation and implemented it. This is a key aspect of manifesting too because when we’re stressed, we’re not in alignment. I was using ‘the power of joy’ then to build my life back up, but better than before. Soon, I learned that this was the law of attraction and I spent a few years studying and practising this.

Why does shit happen (even when you’re consciously creating)? Because the purpose of life is to awaken into consciousness and everything happens for a reason. Sometimes you are not ready for what you want so you get the letting in process. There is usually a silver lining. Feel your emotions and process. But then, know that everything happens for you and not to you. Our souls need to go on a journey to fulfil our life’s purpose.

Why am I so passionate about manifesting? Because, like you, I’ve had some huge challenges in life to overcome, like cancer, and because I have a low tolerance for living a life I don’t love. And being a person I don’t love. And being around people who aren’t good for me. I majored in psychology at uni and have been interested in the mind since before then. Plus, I hate to see other people suffering and would like to share what I know and what I do.

I’ve included my 11-step formula for manifesting in Loving and 4-step process for manifesting on the go. But first there is work to do to get to that. It’s 55 pages and available for immediate download. I’m feeling very happy and proud of this guide. It’s a transformational journey.

With so much love,

Mireille xx

The Art of Flow in 2021

Sometimes my heart works faster than my brain. Last Monday was such an experience. I’d been working on Loving, a new guide I’ll be bringing out in a few weeks, and loving it. But I woke up on Monday feeling tired physically. I realised I needed a break and wanted to head to the beach. Instead, I ended up following my heart to buy a bean bag and there I found some storage containers. I came home to take apart this big cupboard in my office and, five hours later, was still unscrewing it.

One week later, the whole room is being repainted. It turned out to be a bigger job than I could have imagined but the right support showed up and I ended up manifesting the exact thing I was visualising the week before! Often I think about something I want and it ends up happening. But sometimes what I want looks like something I don’t want at first. And that can be scary.

In August last year, not only did I find out I had tumours in my spine and was having treatment for it, as I wrote last week, but then I realised half my face was numb. I couldn’t taste food or drinks on that side, which was the worst part, and couldn’t feel my eyelid when I was putting makeup on. Plus, I’d be drooling out of the right side when I lay down. On top of the shit that was already going wrong, it was a lot to take.

At first I thought it was from the steroids to reduce the swelling but then realised it wasn’t that. At the end of 2019, I had a wisdom tooth removed  and thought it could be related. My mum said to find a certain dentist but I couldn’t and so I ended up at this other one with an expert, who wouldn’t do anything for me because I’d been on this medication for bone metastasis, but he sent me to an oral surgeon instead.

Basically, I was supposed to come off the medication six months prior to having any dental work done. The medication stops the bone cells from eating away the old cells, so that the cancer doesn’t cause even more deterioration. But when you have dental work, you need the old cells to be eaten away so the new cells don’t grow on top of the old. So that was causing the issue. But first I had to get another scan because it could’ve been from a tumour in my jaw and, meanwhile, I still had half a numb face.

Because I decided to stop all medication that December of 2019, as I was doing the NORI and all my tests were good, I didn’t write that I was on that bone medication, so the dentist who took my wisdom tooth out didn’t know. But if I had stayed on the medication, the problem could have been a lot worse! The oral surgeon said that the oncologists don’t see the end result of the medication. Patients sometimes have to have part of their jaw cut out because of it and then their sinus collapses.

But my numb face saved me from going back on the medication. And the diet also, even though it didn’t work out as I’d wanted it to. That’s why I always say that things are working out for the best. This is what my mum told me when I was really down at the end of 2016, something that had kept her going through some very tough times. Everything happens for a reason. We only have to see it. When we do, life can be quite magical, despite the hard bits. Or because of this.

Naturally, it feels really bad when we’re going through it and presence is all we can manage then. Practising it. I share my process in Empower : a free guide to help process emotions, change thoughts and return to peace and happiness. So much feels like it’s going wrong right now as we are being invited, in the Age of Aquarius, to awaken into greater consciousness, from 3D to 5D reality, apparently. I can believe it. 

As my ‘break’ that turned into a renovation exemplifies, the heart leads us, one bread crumb to the next, to where we are going. Uplift is a transformational mini-guide to turn your life around, create an upward spiral and spark high-vibe conversation.

Stay tuned for Loving. Plus, subscribe for my weekly updates, musings and inspiration.

Lots of love,

Mireille xx

NORI Diet for Cancer : Why I Quit

Last year I wrote about my love for the NORI diet for cancer and today I am writing about it again because it was a very popular post and I occasionally have women going through breast cancer write to ask me about it. I am not an expert in any way, but I have had hormone receptive breast cancer for seven years, with metastasis for the last five. So I have tried a lot of different diets, as well as being on oestrogen production inhibitors, Zoladex and Kisquali, and Exemestane, which is similar to Tamoxifen. I am simply sharing my experience here.

What is the NORI Protocol?

To recap, The NORI Protocol is a therapeutic four-month vegan low protein diet with a lot of supplements and no alcohol. It needs to be done with a practitioner, who will look at monthly blood tests to see if levels, such as Vitamin D and magnesium, are high enough. The theory is that the diet starves the body of methionine, an amino acid that the body doesn’t produce itself, and this mimics the effects of fasting.

Did you stick to it?

I started the NORI in September 2019 and finished on January 9th of 2020. And I stuck to it almost 100%. I think there was only one occasion when I drank a cider and at the end, on a trip to Phuket, that I ate some rice. This was not allowed on the diet, except for the four days out after every ten when vegan methionine- containing foods were allowed. Like olives and starches besides potatoes.

What was the effect?

The diet had a really positive effect on the tumour marker in my blood tests. A healthy marker is considered below 50 and mine had always been less than 20. But after a few months on the NORI, it went to 6 and remained there even after I stopped and was eating a mostly vegan diet with a maximum of one alcoholic drink a week.

However, the tumour marker is not the whole story.  I had clear scans too in February and was thrilled that everything was so great. My reason behind wanting to do such a diet and then adopt veganism and little alcohol was because I wanted to go off the medication, and be cured for good.  So that eventually I could realise my dream of falling pregnant and having a baby.

Why did you do the NORI again?

Without going into all the details now, in July last year I ended up in hospital. The knots in my glutes that wouldn’t come out and pins and needles in my right leg, both of which had started in January, turned out to be more tumours. I started on the NORI as soon as I found out and once again it had the great effect on my blood tests, lowering the tumour marker straightaway.

Then I started the medication again and had radiotherapy for the tumours. Because of this, they went. But I continued to do the NORI as well, since it’s meant as a complementary therapy, even though it was extremely difficult to deprive myself when I was going through so much. I felt like I had Herculean will-power but it wasn’t very fun.

Why did you stop?

After a few months of the diet, I quit. The first time was because I started crying at the dinner table. Tears were running down my cheeks as I faced one more potato salad, while my parents were eating something regular and delicious. I put my head down so they wouldn’t see, but my dad asked if I was alright. “I hate this food!” I cried. “Well don’t eat it then,” he said. “Just eat what you want.”

So I did. I stopped the diet. And I was so elated to be able to eat a tuna sandwich again. Still, after paying so much for all the supplements, I thought to take them. Well, after vomiting fifty times, no exaggeration, I decided Life was trying to tell me to stop and so I did. That was in early September and I have been eating a regular diet since, with meat, dairy and alcohol, back on the medication since July, and have had increasingly low tumour markers and a recent clear scan since.

What else do you do?

Besides diet, I meditated for two hours a day in September and October but since then back to 30 minutes daily. I exercise a few times a week and mostly go swimming and walking at the beach once or twice a week. One thing I didn’t like about the NORI protocol and the particular course I did as part of it was the overload of exercises to accompany it, like the Wim Hof breathing method. After being in this for seven years, as I said, I have come to value simplicity and ease more than anything. Trying to do it all caused stress and confusion for me. But of course, it’s a journey.

What have you learned?

One thing I realised is that perhaps NORI is effective for cancer that doesn’t have to do with hormones. Because if oestrogen and progesterone stimulate my tumours, why would a diet affect it, if the diet doesn’t affect my hormones or not to the extent that is needed? Secondly, if there was one thing I’d definitely do differently, it would be to go on Zoladex and have the induced menopause when it was first recommended to me in 2014. That would have saved me a lot of metastasis perhaps. But maybe not. It was only with the addition of Kisquali in 2018 that the metastasis seemed to stop. In any case, Life has taught me many things in this time and I am extremely thankful for that.

Break-ups, Crisis & Daily Mishaps to FLOW & Happiness

My dear, last year someone broke up with me for being too “spiritual”. I know what he meant and that’s perfectly fine. I was actually really thankful that he was so clear and honest with me. But still, for a while, and with the events of last year, it rocked my confidence. When I started seeing a psych in September, I expressed that I didn’t know what to believe anymore. But as life and our sessions progressed, I came to realise that I actually do have many beliefs and practices that are helpful to myself and to others.

So that’s why I’ve started sharing them more. Each time there is some mishap or some difficult person or situation to deal with, I use my practices even more and give them to those who need help. I know of people going through really tough situations right now, like a dad who’s not been able to see his two young sons for a year because his ex has made false claims about him. I would like people who are going through stuff like that to know that it’s entirely possible to turn your life around, but you have to believe you can affect the outcome.

One thing to know about the law of attraction is that the vibration of the problem is not the same as that of the solution. When you’re sitting there trying to figure stuff out, the solution is elusive, but when you go for a walk or go do something else, it comes. Last week I had a really strange thing happen. My car registration was due and had been paid but the money returned to the bank account. I got on the phone to pay or figure out what was going on and while I was waiting, I heard some useful information on the recorded message and knew that I needed to go to The Department of Transport.

So off I went. It was a Wednesday afternoon and Perth was in a semi-lockdown so  all the social distancing procedures were in effect. I was a little stressed by this situation because I didn’t know what was going on and by the time I got to the counter, I could tell this was not the right lady to get. She kept telling me to stand back when I moved from my spot and then told me I had to take my car to the pits because the number plates had been cancelled. When I told her I still had the number plates she was confused and went to get advice. Meanwhile I stood on my spot, masked up, till she came back and told me to return with my number plates.

In a panic, I thought to go home and get back there that day, but there was a lot going on, school-hour traffic, and so I decided to return in the morning when I was fresh. So that is what I did. The problem was resolved easily and effortlessly, with my new energy, and I didn’t have to wait long. The lady said that it had been an error and I accepted that, knowing everything happens for a reason, including this. I actually ended up with a few added bonuses, including money saved.

Thinking that “It shouldn’t have happened” or how annoying it was that I had to run around when it was their fault would have been a waste of time and energy. It should have happened because it did. But I know when you’re going through something big or small, it can be hard to get to this place of peace and flow. That’s why I’ve created a couple of guides to help. Uplift is a transformational mini-guide to help anyone wanting to turn their life around,  get out of a slump and start going in an upwards direction or for those who would love some High Vibe Conversation starters. The other is Empower : a free guide to help process emotions, change thoughts and return to peace and happiness.

Lots of love,

Mireille xx

When Your World Crashes Down

The year is 2016 and I am working away in my coaching business, having just finished running the Healthy and Powerfully Feminine online course for the first time, and loving it! Sure there are many ways I could improve my organisational skills. I have a stack of papers beside my desk with all the ideas and projects I’m going to implement and a piece of paper posted to the pinup board above my desk listing out what I’m going to be doing each month. Then Life happens.

Literally, just as I finish the ebook on How To Be Queen of Your Love Life and upload it, the first migraine hits. It feels like having a plate smashed in my face. I stagger home from the cafe and spend the next month either lying in bed, trying to work up the courage to turn over, or making it out dosed up on pills to get different therapies to try and work out what is wrong. In between, when I do feel good, I try to post on instagram, to publicise my ebook and keep running my business, but each time I’m slapped back down by a killer migraine.

Eventually my friend Aleisha says to get an MRI and I do and find out I have a 6cm tumour in my head pushing the whole brain over, causing the migraines. Well, you may know the rest. I have emergency brain surgery two days later, spend a week in the hospital and eight months recovering. The behind the scenes, I will be sharing in my next books. The thing is that after a few months (a few weeks?), I tried to carry on as usual, posting on instagram and then having the great idea (sarcasm) to run a Body Love workshop. Only looking back could I see that I wasn’t ready for it. But at the time, I tried to carry on as usual. Then I accidentally deleted all my YouTube videos by “mistake” one day and was so distraught that I finally gave up.

That was when the journey to wellness really began. It was awful also and  I went through many months of suffering and even longer to fully come to terms with the repercussions, but ultimately I am happier and better. Even though I felt happy and good before. Right now there is a lot of this going on, worlds coming crashing down, and I’m writing this to say that it does get better. This midlife crisis really is for our highest good. The Great Awakening.

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.
