Hungry by Stephanie Hamilton

"We all HUNGER for more meaning.  Searching endlessly, and insatiably so...trying to fill the cracks that creep into our existence.  We are waiting for someone, or something to come and light up our lives, when all along WE are the solution, WE are the creation, WE ARE OUR OWN SAVIOR." Stephanie's book is quite unique, it is hard to really classify.

Then I turn the … [Read more...]

How I helped my bottle-fed baby through reflux

Our first daughter, Lily, was always the picture of health and didn't get her first sniffle till she was18 months old, despite being put on antibiotics at birth for a suspected Strep B infection. When our second daughter, Sophie, was born naturally without antibiotic or drug intervention, I felt sure she would follow in her sister's healthy footsteps.

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...]

Moving forward!

In response to last week’s post –’Ticket to freedom!’, I received a number of requests for more explanation about whether to use the word ‘should’ … or not. This week we’re using ‘should’ in ways to move forward with living our ultimate Champagne Life. Disempowering ourselves and others The success of any communication starts with where we are coming from, while we are delivering it … whether we are coming from an empowering or disempowering context. If we’ve been using the word ‘should’ to berate ourselves for not doing things we hoped would happen, but … [Read more...]

Flying high versus flying low

Living your Ultimate Champagne Life is about enriching your relationships with yourself and others … you can fly higher by simply elevating your daily experience. This week, at the delightful and heart warming musical Mary Poppins … I was reminded of the importance of flying high versus flying low. As nanny for the Banks family, Mary Poppins was faced with Mr Banks (George), who treats his wife, children and servants as assets rather than people … creating a dysfunctional family, by running their household like a British bank. Mrs Banks was starving for his attention and all their children … [Read more...]
