Dying to be me

Dying to be me by Anita Moorjani As you know by now I am big Hay House fan, and a fan of Dr Wayne Dyer. I have read many of his books and those of other authors from Hay House, including Cheryl Richardson, Debbie Ford and of course Louise Hay. So when I heard Wayne Dyer describing this book, Dying To Be Me by Anita Moorjani as a life changing book, then it got my attention. In fact, Wayne Dyer has described this book as one of the most important, fundamentally significant books of our time. So I had to read it. After all of that expectation, as if often the way when something has a lot of … [Read more...]

Cooking for others

Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about cooking for others and the meaning behind the action. I don’t mean carving roast beef and passing around popovers for dinner guests (although that also has its qualities), but hot, nourishing meals that are made with care and delivered to someone in need. There’s a lot to be said for the benefits of good, home cooked food when you are emotionally and physically low on reserves.

I have lived under the haze of chronic sleep deprivation for the last  six or seven years.  Having four young children very close in age is the primary cause.

5 healthy foods to stretch your grocery budget further

  With food prices soaring, more parents like me are wondering how to get the best bang for their buck. I've found the following five nutrient-dense foods to be a good deal.   1. Whole free range chickens. Now I know free range chickens cost more than cage/barn-raised chickens, but they're also a lot more nutritious. When chickens are free to range outside in the sun, they make vitamin D which is then passed on to us when we eat them. Most of us are deficient in vitamin D, especially in winter, so it's important to absorb it from as many food sources as possible. Free range … [Read more...]

Turning your intentions into outcomes!

Are you nailing it with turning your intentions into outcomes? A woman in a workshop I was facilitating last week, shared with the rest of the group how she’s achieved some remarkable milestones with her goals this year … including outstanding progress with her training for running a marathon. She’s on track with giving her intention lots of attention, to produce her outcome. Well done! However … there’s one other goal she hasn’t been taking any action on … this goal is to assemble an album with all her children’s photos in it. She mentioned she would just have to put it on … [Read more...]
