What happens when women get out of their heads and into their hearts?

I want to share 3 stories from 3 different women who I have had the privilege to work with through my Head to Heart Online course. I’ve gratefully been able to watch and witness each of them absolutely open up and shine in their own unique ways, and I want to share a snippet of their stories so that you know that it’s possible for you too.

HeidiYou may know Heidi as the crazy loud gal that keeps Will and Woody in line on their Perth hit92.9 Radio show Heidi, Will and Woody. I met Heidi last year at a Nude Yoga class (turns out to be the ultimate place for networking 😉 ) and we soon became great mates. I’ve watched Heidi transform, come more into her power and blossom in so many ways over the last year, and I was so honoured to have her join me in Round One of Head to Heart. The shifts I’ve seen in Heidi over the past couple of months since completely the course and since helping her understand the negative voice in her head have been so beautiful. I continue to watch her stepping more into her heart every single day, and I couldn’t be happier for her.

I’ve seen Heids really struggle at times, but she never ever gives up. She keeps showing up to the uncomfortable stages of growth so that she can show up even better in the World. One of the most inspiring things for me to witness is her inner strength. Heidi recently spoke up (on her public platform of thousands and thousands mind you) and expressed her ongoing battles with anxiety. She possibly saw this as no big deal, but in this moment of complete vulnerability and speaking from her heart, she was being a light and a voice for so many others out there thinking they were the only ones too.

She is now able to identify when her mind is running on crazy time and knows how to consciously stop and tone it back down – which for all of us is an ongoing practice and commitment. I’m beyond proud of everything that she is doing, to see her leading from her heart and using her platform to be a light for others.

You can follow Heidi’s journey and watch her recent interview with Today Tonight on anxiety here.

CherieI remember when I first met Cherie and all I thought was – “This girl has soo much love to give this World, she needs to own it”. I could feel it from day one that she just needed a little loving push. Like many of us that have a loud inner call to help others in some way and share good vibes with the World, (myself included!) there’s an equally loud inner voice that arcs up saying “Who are you to teach? You’re not good enough to do that. No-one will care. You won’t be as good as anyone else so why bother.” And thank the goddess we’ve remembered that this inner voice in our head will always be there to keep us safe, but the real voice that wants us to shine lies in our hearts. We don’t just hear it, we feel it. And that’s the voice we are here to listen to, and more importantly act on.

I was soo happy the day that I found out that Cherie had signed up and FINALLY said yes to one of her dreams – becoming a yoga teacher. It’s easy for the voice in our head to act out of fear and come up with the most creative stories disguised as ‘logic’ – “It’s too expensive. I’ll do it later when I’m ready. Now’s not the best time, maybe next year… ” they could go on and on, and they do! And we keep believing them and we keep being distracted from our true path, passions and purpose.

I’ve gratefully witnessed many of Cherie’s AHA moments and breakthroughs during Head to Heart and I’m so freakin’ happy to say that she is currently in Bali undergoing her yoga teacher training, something that may have never happened if she didn’t turn down the voice in her head that had been keeping her from shining and following her heart. When you say YES to your heart and show up for it – even when the fear is there too – the Universe takes note and shows up for you too.

I cannot wait to be front row in her first class and to see her beaming her light out in the beautiful way that only she can.

EllaElla took part in the very first round of my Head to Heart course in Perth, and it’s been an honour to sit and watch her absolutely shine and align more and more with her true passion and purpose. I knew that all she needed was someone to remind her that she doesn’t need permission from anyone else to rock out and be who she wants to be. Whatever brings you the most joy and lights you up – that’s your purpose. Period. And I believe that it’s our responsibility to share it with the World and trust the inner knowing that things will always work out.

I remember during one of the sessions after leading the group through a meditation to drop them back into their hearts, I saw an instant shift in Ella and her first words coming out of the meditation were “I just want to paint. I need to paint.” And that was that. The seed was planted.

Ella has now started her own art business alongside her studies and is sharing her heart-driven creative gifts with the World. You can check out her absolutely beautiful paintings here. You want to know why it’s happened so quickly and joyfully? Because that’s exactly how alignment works. There’s no fluffing with it. When you follow what lights you up, magic happens. I am so so glad that Ella listened to her inner voice and is now spreading joy through her unique and wonderful creations. I’m lucky enough to have one of her first paintings hanging up in my dining room that brings me joy every single time I look at it.

“Courage is a heart word. The root of the word courage is cor – the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word courage meant “To speak one’s mind by telling all one’s heart.”–Brené Brown

I’m so grateful to have had these women join me in Head to Heart, and to constantly be reminding me of the power of listening to, and living from your heart – no matter how big or small, it ALL matters. These are just a few examples of the things that can shift and happen when you get the heck out of your head and really crank up the volume of the voice in your heart.

So what I believe happens when women get out of their heads and back into their hearts? Courage… and fucking magic.

Never underestimate your ability to spread light and joy by having the courage to follow your heart and show the World who you really are.

Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training – Part One

As I slowly merge my way out of last weeks Kundalini Yoga bubble, I’m feeling called to reflect on some things I’ve learnt up until this point, rather than bang on about details of the yoga training itself. There are some sweet lessons that I want to share with you – so first let’s back the truck up a little and start from the beginning.

I want to start off by saying this – over 18 months ago I planted a seed in my mind about becoming a Kundalini Yoga Teacher. It was one of those ideas that just dropped into my awareness one day, kind of out of nowhere. Until this point I had practiced yoga on and off, but I could never see myself as a yoga teacher – especially because the only fitness teaching I’d done up until now was being a Les Mills Body Attack instructor – which is pretty much the complete opposite end of the scale!

Yogi Bhajan - Kundalini YogaI had never heard of Kundalini Yoga until I randomly came across a class online and my curiosity was triggered. I found myself instantly drawn to learning more about this specific practice and the teachings of Yogi Bhajan (pictured) – Master of Kundalini Yoga. The more I read up on this powerful technology, the more I fell in love with it and knew in my heart that I’ve got to teach it some day in a new way. There was just something about it, and the more I practiced, the more my outside (and inside) World started to shift.  That very first day that I “randomly found it” (or should I say – it found me) a little seed was planted. And the thing with seeds is, first they are planted and although you can’t see them, you know they are there. You trust in them even before you see the full manifestation and before you have to figure out all the answers to ‘how and when’, just know that they will always blossom and come into fruition when they are meant to – it’s law. 

So I followed my curiosity and started doing Kundalini Yoga from home (yogaglo.com is the bomb) and soon hooked up with my first teacher in Perth, Rosie Rees. Turns out Rosie had just moved over from the East Coast and was starting her first ever 6 week Kundalini Yoga beginners course – of course this timing lined up perfectly because the Universe doesn’t mess around with alignment. First rule – when things show up effortlessly on your path, your job is to follow the crumbs. (more…)

Next chapter – Finding my feminine flow again.

The past month has been a really interesting and awesome one for me. I turned 25, went on a holiday to Bali with my soulies, attended the Beautiful You Coaching Academy’s Bali Inspiration Day dedicated to the Divine Feminine, finished up the first round of my 8 week Head to Heart ecourse and was out of the blue intuitively guided and drawn towards new teachers and tools (which I now understand why!).

April was going to be a big month – I could feel it. I had my to-do list ready and was fired up and ready to roll with ideas coming out my ears! However, as I went to get cracking on them, my energy for them just disappeared. Gone. Seeya later. No desire whatsoever. And this is very unlike me! At first I was confused because I am a fiery Aries that genuinely does like to get shit done, but something inside was giving me the nope, not this time pal feels.

This is what I know to be true – creation works in spirals, not straight lines. All we can do is follow the guidance we receive in each next moment – especially when it makes no sense at all. Follow the flow, right?

 
So as I look back on the last month, things are starting to make more sense. It all fell into place after I recently had an energy balance and the blocks were all on receiving, feeling nourished and more specifically on a physical level – my reproductive organs. These sacred parts of ourselves aren’t just a physical part of us – they house emotions, beliefs, energies and so much more. And this part of us for women in particular, is so darn wise and sacred. This part of my body had been guiding me and giving me the signs all along – I just wasn’t paying attention.

++ This may not make sense to you just yet, but I love sharing and I truly believe there are some of you out there who are feeling off, disconnected and confused with your energy, feelings and emotions as well, so why not open up the discussion about it! ++

For those familiar with the energy centres of your body, aka chakras, there is a beautiful wise part of us women called the Sacral Chakra. On a physical level it covers the lower abdomen, reproductive organs and lower back. It’s the home of our pleasure, passion, sensuality, abundance (relationship with money and receiving), emotions (also stores a LOT of shame, guilt and fear) and feelings (ability to be vulnerable and soft), intimacy and connection (to ourselves, others and the Universe). This energy centre determines how we allow ourselves to experience life through feelings and sensations. It helps you feel the juiciness in each present moment. And this very word here – pleasure – I’ve come to realise is what’s missing for a lot of us.

Even the word makes some people cringe and brings up fear and ickyness for many – know you aren’t alone and you aren’t a weirdo if either comes up for you. And for this exact reason, I’ve been called to explore more of this part of myself. I’m not talking about this topic in a sexual way, although that absolutely is a part of it, I’m talking more about the everyday pleasures of life that we are missing right before our eyes. You know, like actually slowing the frick down and feeling again. Not trying to be everything to everyone and serve from a depleted place because that’s where we serve noone. Knowing ourselves on a deeper level and connecting to wise parts of ourselves that we’ve been turning a blind eye on or suppressing for far too long.

I am so excited to learn more about this groovy part of myself and if this resonates I invite you on the journey with me and let’s explore together!

How I am currently working with my Sacral Chakra and awakening more of my feminine energy;

First up – connecting with yourself and this particular energy centre. Put your hands over your lower abdomen, hips or womb area, or even as a starting point just sit in meditation and hold your awareness there, and just close your eyes and feel. Does it make you feel weird? Emotional? Ashamed? Blocked? Sad? Happy? Alive? Peaceful? Buzzy? There is no right or wrong, the point is to feel. You are so safe to go there.  (more…)
