If you can let go of the bitterness and resentment that you have been carrying, it can open up a whole new world of opportunities for you.
Holding on to regret is like dragging the weight of the past with us everywhere we go. It drains our energy, leaving less available for life in the present because we are constantly feeding an old issue.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve — but there are healthy ways to cope with the pain. Grief that is expressed and experienced has a potential for healing that eventually can strengthen and enrich life.
Balance is the state that we achieve when all of the aspects of our lives and selves are in harmony. In order to achieve balance, we have to assess what is important to us.
When we surround ourselves with positive people, we clear away the negativity that exists around us and create more room to welcome nurturing and renewed energy. Doing this not only enriches our lives, but also envelops us in a supportive and healing space that fosters greater growth and understanding.
The ability to go from resisting to embracing change can happen, although maybe not overnight. So the next time you are faced with an experience which causes your reality to change, take a deep breath, take a step back and embrace the opportunity.
We cannot be alive without making an impact on the world which surrounds us. Every single action taken can affect the whole as greatly as each action not taken. And when it comes to making the world a better place, what we choose not to do can be just as important as what we choose to do.
Our lives are much more manageable if we can experience them one day at a time. It helps to remember that we do not always need to completely understand what is happening right now, nor do we need to be able to predict the future.
Relationships – and jealousy in particular – provide an opportunity to come to a fundamental understanding of the self. Overcoming jealousy is like changing any emotional reaction or behaviour; it begins with awareness.
Since ancient times trees have been symbols of power, wisdom, fertility; even life itself. I have always found trees extremely inspirational and spiritual because of their great longevity.
There is almost nothing better in the world than the feeling of honestly showing up for our own lives. When we can do this, we become people that are more alive and who have the ability to make things happen in our lives and the lives of the people around us.
Remembering to say thank you to our guides and helpers is important for the completion of the assistance they have given. The expansive energy of gratitude has the benefit of making your body start to relax. It’s so simple and yet immensely powerful. It truly has the potential of enriching our everyday lives.
Like actors on the stage of the world, our different roles are just costumes that we inhabit and then shed. As we bob and weave with the ebb and flow of life, our roles change but our true self remains constant.
Intuition is a process that gives us the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning; bridging the gap between the conscious and non-conscious parts of our mind and also between instinct and reason.
We all have days when we feel lonely, but the very idea of loneliness comes from the false notion that we are separate and isolated parts in a world filled with other separate, isolated parts.
Overachievers are people who have achieved, but still feel the need to do more; creating a huge imbalance in their personal and work-related lives. People who exhibit this behaviour may be trying to compensate for feelings of insecurity and doubts about their worth.
The Power of the Mind is a curious phenomenon because it is so potent and yet so difficult to control. We find ourselves thinking a certain way, knowing that a particular thought may be creating trouble for us and yet we find it difficult to stop.
Our motivation to help others may be an extension of a deep desire to heal a wounded part of ourselves. This does not mean that we are not meant to be helping others, but it does mean that we would do well to turn some of that helping energy within.
The warrior spirit, when allowed free rein, is overpowering and all-consuming. If it is to be a positive force in our lives, it must be tempered with wisdom and moderation.

Butterflies are beautiful, very inspiring and are living spirits of wonder. They are delicate, yet determined, each telling a life story of their very own.
