DREAM JOURNALLING WITH KIDS
~ In a society that traditionally doesn’t value REST, we are currently consciously exploring SLEEP, REST and DREAMS during our conscious kids programs this term. Why? 🌒 Well, because we want children to grow up knowing that busy doesn’t always equate to happiness - or even efficiency 😜. We want children to grow up knowing that we don’t always need to look outside for answers - we have inner wisdom that can be accessed through simple and beautiful practices such as play, creativity and a connection to self. (Like journalling and dream work such as in the pic. The girl is 3 years old and yet she spent 20 minutes exploring her dream world via our journal. ) We want children to understand the powerful connection between rest and learning. Time and space to process means learning is rich and deep. Because real self care means knowing when to rest. It means being connected to self.
21.7.18| Everyone has the same questions, we just look for the answers in different places 🍃ps how crazy that it’s post 721 on 21xseven on 21.7 day. Don’t forget to look for the little signs the Universe sends! ✨
// Because sometimes you just gotta roll with how you're feeling.... And a side salad with balsamic vinaigrette on the side of my cooked breakfast is how I'm rolling 💁🏻♀️

21/07/2018 • the topic of this week
Another week, another topic. This week we’ll be taking on the topic of ‘non-judgement’. You can read the main post I wrote on this subject via the link in my bio: that’ll offer you a bit of context.
If you’d like to get some of your questions on this topic answered, you can submit them by sending me a DM or email. I’ll be accepting submissions until thursday 17.00 (Dutch time zone), so be sure to contact me in time. Throughout the week I will be elaborating on your questions, ideas and random thoughts in my journal. For those who are not yet familiar with the concept: you can totally speak your heart. I can refer to you as anonymous if that is more comfortable for you. It’s your party after all!
Hope to hear from you soon!
A common misconception of successful people is somehow they’ve figured it out. That they’ve cracked some magical code that’s gotten them where they are, and if you could just find the right strategy or tool, you too will get there.
The truth is, no matter how far long an individual is on their path of success, they still occasionally find themselves feeling lost or scared at times.
They still fail or feel like a complete fraud.
They still experience overwhelm, and endure heartache.
They still require support, guidance, and a gentle reminder to be compassionate with themselves on this path.
I feel like I should put out my own magazine, with a paparazzi spread, "Successful Entrepreneurs - They’re just like YOU!" 😜.
Seriously though, it's the individual experience - the personal growth and multi-faceted awareness – that I absolutely love.
This grand adventure of following your heart and birthing your big ideas into the world will put you face-to-face with your most amazing, unique strengths and your most vulnerable, ugly weaknesses.
It’s humbling and requires massive amounts of compassion, courage, and tenacity to keep moving forward.
Sixteen(!) years in, and many businesses, successes, and failures later... I am still learning. I still feel totally scared and completely lost at times.
I’d love to report that we only have to learn these tough lessons once, but the fact of the matter is when life is moving fast, and you’re expanding and growing, you will continually be provided new opportunities to grow.
Which is to say, you’ll have to face the truth that you are not infallible. You’re human. I’m human. We’re all learning and growing, and it’s truly thanks to the failures and mistakes in our lives that we become stronger, better, and more aware.
Failure is essential to growth. Don't just aim for success. Aim for growing and learning every step of the way. 😘
Just enjoying the afternoon sunshine 🌞

In this morning's meditation, I received the message "relax." I had no clue what that meant. I asked for clarification and received nothing. I then asked if there was any other message I needed to receive and heard, loudly and clearly, "you are loved, you are protected." I thanked the Universe and sat quietly, hoping to better understand the message.
I have been having bad dreams--nightmares--about teaching for the past few weeks. The semester doesn't start until the end of August and I'm already having nightmares. I'm clear that the academy is not the right place for me but I also need the paycheck and insurance as I make this transition to the next chapter of my life and have been focusing on the things I love about my job in order to maintain positive energy and continue to attract positive outcomes in my life.
So why the nightmares? I have been under attack in the academy since the beginning, since my doctoral studies. Department Chairs, peers, colleagues, students... it comes from all directions.
The message that I am loved and protected promises me that I am okay and that the academy won't break me. I can relax, focus on doing what I do best (teaching, advising, and mentoring), and know that I am safe.
Your body was made to THRIVE! Not to get sick, tired, stressed, angry, depressed, and so disconnected from yourself that you feel lost. ❥ Allow your body to thrive fully by changing the way think and feel about yourself for starters. The rest will fall into place.

Taking in the magic. ✨
Basking in the sunshine, reading, endulging, and repeat. Mmmm... Yep. 🍒
Travelling with kids! 🛫
What do you think is the best age to travel with kids? -
What are your best tips to keep them occupied on long flights? -
Our last long flight was last year going from Australia to London. Indy was only 2 so it was a bit challenging on my own, but overall I was pleasantly surprised by how good she was! -
My only regret was not getting front row seats as her moving around was annoying the person sat in front! As much as I tried to keep het sat in her seat and keep her occupied, 2 year olds just don't like sitting still for that long 🙈
We wish you a fabulous weekend ☀️
Ahh Mexico...Take me back! 🌴
My sister got married here in Cancun. I had to leave my baby with her Daddy so I only stayed for 1 week. -
I always said I'll come back with Indy though when she's old enough. Might have to make it happen soon! 🌞
I would put Mexico up there as one of my favourite places I've been. What's your favourite destination? 💚
Missing the days spent at the river when we lived in Dubbo.
I've always needed to be near water...it was so hard living so far away from the ocean for as long as I did! The river was the next best thing 💚
Now I live near the ocean and I'm reminiscing about the river 😂 I definitely don't regret the move though.
Can't wait to finish converting the van so we can get on the road again 🚐💚
✨”Celebrate who you are in your deepest heart. Love yourself and the world will love you.” ✨
We human beings can become very used to identifying ourselves with what we see outside of ourselves. Do we have the right relationships? Do we have the best career or a lot of money? Are we on the right spiritual path? This is a very unstable way to live.
The outside world is always in a state of change and flux. If we attach our identity to such things, we, too, will experience the same sense of instability. This brings about fear, anxiety, and self-doubt.
Inside of you is an entire Universe of calmness, stability, and profound wisdom that far surpasses anything in your outer world. This you can trust. But it takes the habit of learning to go within and connect with your heart.
This place of wisdom is much deeper than your emotions. It is much deeper and more intelligent than your conscious, everyday thoughts. But it is well worth exploring that Universe of Love within you that gives you life, breath, and every single moment of existence that you have ever experienced.✨💗

I’m very open about the fact that my Inner Autumn is the season I feel most challenged by in my cycle. In the past I used to beat myself up for being snappy and short with my partner, and lacking energy and creativity during this time. I didn’t like who I was during this season and I resented the way it inhibited me.
My journey with cycle awareness has helped me completely shift this mindset. Though my Inner Autumn still gifts me challenges, my new level of understanding and awareness has allowed me to make small changes to my lifestyle to better meet my needs at this time.
Simply modifying the foods I eat, how I choose to move my body and how I work, have been potent and packed a whole lot of punch. And of course, learning to embrace the gifts of the Wild Woman energy! Embracing and supporting myself through my Inner Autumn has completely changed my relationship with my cycle!
If you too want to make peace with the more challenging parts of your cycle and learn how you can adapt your lifestyle so you can thrive, I’d love for you to join me in my 1:1 Cycle Coaching. Learning to flow with my cycle has completely transformed my life, and I know it will do the same for you. Find out more about my coaching packages via the link in my profile.
There is a card in there that's just waiting to teach you an important lesson, or to secure your thoughts or maybe to give that sound advice.
Listen to the voice that speaks with no words ✨
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Precisely my mission. 🙏
Click the link in my bio to check out my free masterclass on how to do just that. 👆Let’s shake this world, gently, together.
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image...” Since we are made in His image, all we have to worry about is what He wants us to be like, not everybody else.
Ｅｎｇｌｉｓｈ & Ｄｅｕｔｓｃｈ - No, not my tooth is hurting. Something else 🅸🆁🆁🅸🆃🅰🆃🅴🆂 me... 😬 The fact that teens would rather break their bones than break their📱!!! 🙄 And what scares me 🤔 ... that sometimes I BEHAVE like a teenager. 😬 Let‘s be honest: How much time do YOU spend on your smartphone every day? 😉 ————- Nein, nicht mein Zahn tut weh. Etwas ganz anderes 🅸🆁🆁🅸🆃🅸🅴🆁🆃 mich 🤔... die Tatsache, dass Teenager lieber ihre Knochen brechen würden, als ihr Smartphone!!! 📲 🤔 Und was mir Angst macht, dass ich mich manchmal GENAU SO wie ein Teenager benehme! 😬 Lasst uns jetzt bitte ehrlich (zu uns selbst) sein: Wie viel Zeit verbringt IHR täglich mit Eurem Smartphone? 😉#digitaldetox #digitalworld #letsbehonest #ehrlich
Dance through and dance out the storms. As they too are a part of life. And let storms as well as sunny days dance through you.
It is so very common to have a selection of preferred emotions and then there are those ones that we do anything to avoid and those that we whip ourselves with regularly teary-eyed, as if it were necessary for our survival.
Often it is all about the labeling. What meaning do you give a oarticular situation? What story do you tell yourself when you’re experiencing a certain emotion? What do you have to believe to keep experiencing the same pain over and over again?
They’re just emotions and they are not yours to have and to hold. Whatever the emotion, feel it and release it, let go. Let go of the story attached and see what is left? What is real?
Ain’t life one juicy ride so rich with colour that even the most skilled artist could never fully capture it all. No? Maybe it’s time to take take a deep look inside for what it is that is blocking you from experiencing it. I know I am, all the time, all those colours are just too juicy to miss (yes, a pinch of ego-fixation revealing itself just there, always looking for experiences to be had 😉)

Your soul frequency is never depressed, anxious, insecure, negative, sad, unhealthy, or overweight.
So, if you are currently identifying with any of those labels, the good news is that they are *not* the real you.
Regardless of the current state of your body or your mind—whether you’re feeling bright and flexible or dull and uninspired—your soul frequency is the truth of who you are and is waiting to be awakened and utilized in every moment.
Learning to discover this subtle rock-star essence and becoming increasingly willing to listen to it, trust it, and ultimately allow it to guide the unfolding of your life, is the plain and simple path to happiness, a sense of purpose, and glowing health.
Is there someone in your life who's a shining example of this? Show her some love and tag her below! 💗
Want to learn more about your soul frequency and how to align with it? Then get ready for my book, The Soul Frequency: Your Healthy, Awakened and Authentic Life, set for release on September 19th! ✨

Please, for the love of You, INDULGE.
All too often we squash our desires, giving ourselves bogus reasons as to why we "shouldnt" or why we don't deserve it.
Many of us are in this scarcity mindset, where we think we can't have what we want. We get so used to it that we don't even question it. We often never give our desires, or our dreams, a chance. Heck, sometimes we don't even give them a second thought.
Well I'm here to tell you:
You CAN have, be and do ANYTHING you want to. Stop holding yourself back.
This applies to your dreams and it applies to your everyday desires.
If you want to order the dessert for once, ORDER IT. If you want to stay in bed for ten more minutes on your day off, go for it. If you feel like calling the babysitter and going to the spa, do it!
There will always be bills, chores, other people to please. If you keep putting them first, when are you going to have time for you?
Life is meant to be enjoyed. It is designed that way. There are so many wonderful things we can do and have, and it's about time we start allowing ourselves to want to do them and to have them.
The way you treat yourself sends a message about your expectations.
Raise the bar. ALLOW yourself joy and enjoyment, and expect the universe to support that.
Get the heck out of that scarcity mindset, and ALLOW good to come your way.
Expect every day to be a good day.
MAKE every day a good day.
DO the things you want to.
Feel good more of the time.
Live your life for you.
Because life is meant to be enjoyed 🖤
