“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”
I believe in natural health and the wisdom of the body…
Our bodies are designed to be healthy, they are amazing at what they do.
I’m so grateful to have studied the inner workings of the body – to understand the fine tuning of how they function to keep us alive and well. When we understand this we learn to look after ourselves a little better and, most importantly, trust that our body will always try to work in the best way that it can.
I am also grateful to have learnt about the brain to understand why we are the way we are, how much we can get caught up in unhelpful loops due to the messages we are constantly sending to our brain. And how much these messages are influenced by our words, reactions, body and breath…
What I am most grateful for though is the journey of self-discovery that learning all this has taken me on – making friends with who I really am…not who others wanted me to be. And learning that pain can be our greatest teacher…
As we become older we learn to find more acceptance about ourselves, we become wiser, braver, more intuitive…
We are ever evolving beings and it is important to allow these truer versions of ourselves the space and love to grow and emerge into the world….embracing new chapters in our lives…
I continue to explore the healing power of silence, nature, plant medicine, dreamwork…and writing. I am loving being in my fifties embracing a new chapter unfolding that I never even knew existed…who knows, perhaps it might even be a whole new story…
