Interesting idea? But, surely happiness depends on you landing the job you want, dating that hot guy from the gym or buying the designer handbag you want. Right?
WRONG! If this is how you measure and attain happiness then you will never truly be fulfilled … Why? Because your happiness will depend on your external environment and those who move within it.
Imagine instilled happiness that is without judgement or measure but is simple, pure and most importantly effortless. Is this achievable? Sure it is, it just takes a little ‘self-work’ to build your ‘self-worth’ (see what I did there ;)). In all seriousness we need to make peace with who we are and find comfort in the knowledge that no matter what is affecting our external environment our authentic self is preserved and untouched, bathing blissfully in a sparkling hot tub of happiness!
Your true hearts desires aren’t material wealth or success but a desire to know and love the real, authentic YOU.
So … What do you do next? Well, I suggest sitting in meditation and doing exactly as the below quote tells you – it is a personal fave of mine 🙂
“Tell everyone you know: “My happiness depends on me, so you’re off the hook.” And then demonstrate it. Be happy no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel – and then you’ll love them all. Because, the only reason you don’t love them is because you’re using them as your excuse not to feel good.” Esther Abraham – Hicks

From one whole hearted authentic self to another,
Strange question, huh? Well, apparently using a red purse/wallet will make you more financially abundant but could this be true and where has this superstition come from?
Through my beliefs, this actually makes some sense as red is the colour associated with the root chakra (muladhara) and one area of life the root chakra governs is financial stability.
This chakra, often perceived to be the ‘boring’ chakra in my experience, is the most crucial to living a fulfilled life with a plenitude of health and wealth. So how do we know if this chakra is out of balance and what can we do to get in back on track?
Poor health, lethargy, insecurity, depression, problems at work, lack of financial stability, problems with family or home life and any discomfort in the lower back, hips, knees, ankles, feet or legs is a big sign that your root chakra needs some work. While this imbalance is present, life can feel very hard.
It’s said that this chakra’s strengths and weaknesses are programmed into the energetic body between the ages 0 – 7 years old. If there were any of the issues above present in your family life as a child this may well have created some deep rooted blockages within this chakra that have surfaced frequently in your life.
To encourage balance and optimise the function of this chakra will enable a very strong root for the rest of your life to build upon. So, lets balance those root chakras!
Visualise bathing in the colour red – this can be done during meditation. When working on clients with a blocked root chakra it can often feel as though the lower half of the body is cut off from the rest. Imagine drawing the energy from above your head all the way down to your toes and into the earth then bathe your aura in a bright red light.
Be barefoot – physically connect with the earth, if you can walk bare foot outside then even better.
Stand tall – so simple yet so powerful, simply stand with both feet grounded to the earth and visualise your self as a strong, independent, powerful and wise tree whose roots are so connected to the earth that the most fierce storm could not take you down.
Eat healthily – eat natural and organic foods that will resonate completely with this chakra.

Still not sure if your root chakra is out of balance? Well then why not just have some fun with it. See how the above exercises feel to you, see if you are noticing or being drawn to the colour red. Maybe your best friend has suddenly discovered she loves tomatoes or recently bought a fabulous pair of red shoes? Chakra signs are everywhere and the more you learn the more fascinating life becomes.

Lots of root chakra strength coming your way,
So this was the preset title for the first blog post and when I began thinking about how to make a powerful first blog post it hit me … what better a way to start this blog than sending big love to the world!
The desire to create this blog has come from connecting on a very deep level with clients over the years and observing similar obstacles and hurdles that we all face. Through my own study and life experience I have developed a method of processing life events and analysing them to understand their higher purpose.
I want to be able to share this with the world and have the input from others on my views.
I have asked some guest bloggers to contribute to this blog, all of whom will have touched and inspired me at some point on my own personal journey.
Enjoy and I am looking forward to connecting with you all as we say ‘hello’ to the world!
Love, health and happiness,
