Part of being in this epic tribe of millennial entrepreneurs is learning how to forge a new path and take the road less travelled. And one of the most IMPORTANT skills we need to cultivate on this journey is being able to celebrate our own achievements and ENCOURAGE...

Why Manifesting $5000 is As Easy as Going to Yoga

There’s no difference to the Universe between you manifesting $5,000 in your bank account and you going to a yoga class.  Wanna know why? Because the process is exactly the same. You decide you want to go to yoga.  You get out the timetable and choose which...
The Day I Met Deb

The Day I Met Deb

I posted on social media last week about a woman name Deb. I met Deb when she was sitting outside Manly Wharf.    I passed her on my way into Aldi to buy chocolate before I went to babysitting. She was crying. I got that initial gut wrenching feeling you get when you...
There comes a time…

There comes a time…

There comes a time in every woman’s life where she has to choose; Creativity over comfort. Magic over mediocrity. Success over security. Where she has to stand so firmly in what she wants, holding her grandest vision for her life so surely that she becomes incapable...
‘She is…’ My Personal Vision Statement

‘She is…’ My Personal Vision Statement

I found this in my goals for 2017. It’s a personal vision statement I wrote halfway through the year that encapsulates everything I wanted to create, do and be. 2017 was all about radical generosity, manifesting and service… to be honest that’s kind...
2017 Wrap Up

2017 Wrap Up

Little Blue Lines

Little Blue Lines

I have been waiting for the right time to share this story. I lie on the bathroom floor of my childhood home, feeling the cool blue tiles press against the small of my back. On the floor beside me two little pink lines are emerging on a paper stick; clear, bold,...
Too Young to be a Life Coach?

Too Young to be a Life Coach?

I became a Life Coach at 22 (two days before my twenty third birthday) and for the last two years I have had the privilege of working with the most amazing clients from every season and walk of life. One of the most common limiting beliefs I come across in young...
I Got Friend Zoned by My Soulmate

I Got Friend Zoned by My Soulmate

At the end of last year I met a boy (still don’t know why I can’t call them men, feels wayyy too grown up). He messaged me on instagram and I didn’t think much of it until we started talking (and let’s be honest, I stalked his photos) and I...
The sooner you start, the further you’ll go.

The sooner you start, the further you’ll go.

“I only wish I had learnt this sooner.” How many times have you heard that, from your parents, siblings or older friends? The amount of people I meet in their forties, fifties and sixties who wish they had started chasing their dreams earlier is...

Healing the Root

What if I told you that everything that’s happening is what is meant to be happening? By ‘meant to be’ I mean, created by you – on some level – to serve your Highest growth and evolution. Play around with it. How does it feel? Do you...

You Are NOT Lazy

How many times have you berated yourself for not having the motivation you needed? “I just need to stop being so lazy” “I just need to suck it up and get it done” “I just need to work harder” “I just need to push through” We have this misconception that if only we...

This is What Happened…

Hey world-changer,  I had a session with a coach recently about how I could better serve my tribe and something she said really landed with me. I was raving about how much you (and our whole generation) value authenticity and how badly I want to...

How to Overcome Self Sabotage

How to Overcome Self Sabotage

You are on the cusp of something amazing; a promotion, a new relationship, a business that you have been so excited to launch and suddenly your motivation flatlines, you lose all sense of interest and you find yourself spending all day in bed watching Netflix and...

Feel like you have a message to share with the world but there’s too many people sharing the same message and not enough people to hear it? I’ve got a word for you. When 4 per cent of the population becomes fully conscious it will be a tipping point for...

Illumination

Illumination

Hey beautiful, happy Saturday! I had the most amazing morning at the Lululemon breathe yoga event today. They put on meditation and vinyasa classes in an old church in Mosman and it was the most stunning setting to practice in. I walked in to a hundred mats laid out...

I used to think feeling everything so deeply was a curse, a problem to be solved and a flaw to be ironed out. I rode out unbearable highs and unspeakable lows with resentment, wishing for once everything could just flat line so I could have time to catch my breath....
Starve the Ego, Feed the Soul

Starve the Ego, Feed the Soul

So I got Tinder. I’m landlocked (20mins from the beach with no car = landlocked) and one of my aunties is really unwell, so I think it was an attempt to distract myself for a little while when I don’t have the ocean to wash all my worries away. First of all, it’s...
Toward the Sun

Toward the Sun

“We walk the earth with our eyes turned skyward, for there we have been so we long to return.” Leonardo Da Vinci For as long as I can remember, whenever I was in pain or upset I would cry out, “I want to go home”. I could be sitting in my bedroom in the house I...

Why #Girlboss is the Best Thing on TV

Okay so it’s 11.21pm and I still haven’t published today’s blog post. Why? Because I just finished binge watching the entire first season of Girlboss. Thirteen episodes…in a day. Worth it? Fuck yes.  I had the pleasure of hearing Sophia Amoruso...
Sacred Anger

Sacred Anger

I used to be incredibly volatile. As a teenager I would have random outbursts. I oscillated between unbearable sadness and uncontrollable rage. I went from being on the verge of tears to searing hot flashes of anger in a heartbeat. I was a tsunami of destruction,...

Everyday Spirituality

If you ask me, having an authentic and intentional relationship with something greater than ourselves is the number one key to a meaningful and fulfilling life. I can say with confidence that Spirituality saved my life and without it, I wouldn’t be here today...
The Art of Receiving

The Art of Receiving

These last few months I have been learning how to receive. Asking for help is one thing, actually being open to receive it is another. How many of us spend our whole lives practicing giving love to others and yet aren’t able to receive it when it shows up right in...
How Do I Find My Tribe?

How Do I Find My Tribe?

“How do I find my tribe?” A few years ago I was asking this exact question. I had just done a ruthless cull of my social circle and there were very few people left. I was coming home to myself and strengthening my self love muscle, but I felt really alone....

Impressing Vs Empowering

I’m going to keep it short and sweet today and share with you a mindset shift that has been rocking my world lately. It’s called ‘impressing vs empowering’ and it’s seriously life changing stuff. It all started with a gentle nudge from my...

I Chose Happiness, Now What?

Letting Go with Grace

Letting Go with Grace

Salvage

How I Healed My Depression

A Glimpse of Heaven

This is the story of the time God spoke to me on my balcony. It’s the story I tell when someone asks me how I had the guts to up and leave the path of self destruction, neurosis and what ‘the world’ wanted me to do, and forge my own instead.   It was...

A Life Without Limits

An Ode to Drama

What I Learned Without My Laptop

VIDEO: I’m Too Young to Change The World

Something I come across a lot in my work is this belief that, “I’m too young to change the world”. We use it as an excuse to put off what we really want to be doing.  “Oh, I’ll just wait till I’m a bit older and then I’ll start the blog,...
