Have you ever found yourself in a sticky situation?
I once had a meeting with a client who flew in to discuss how we could provide our services.
I was so excited and nervous for this meeting however, it just so happened that I had a pinched nerve in my right ankle that week, and I could not wear heels.
I panicked, this was an important client however, the meeting had to happen.
So I drove to the meeting in my chic, summer flats and carried a pair of heels for back up, praying that I could wear them sitting down in the boardroom.
Well, it didn’t actually pan out that way after all.
While preparing in the parking lot, my ankle was just not having it.
I panicked and thought “Omg, what am I going to do?” I had to think quick, “so I thought to heck with it, I’ll wear my flats and just tell them the truth – that I injured my ankle.”
Turned out the client didn’t even notice, we had a wonderful meeting that even led into lunch.
While I was sitting in my car after the meeting I thought to myself, “Wow, I made such a big deal over my ankle and it turned out to be nothing at all.”
Then I burst out laughing at myself limping in the parking lot in stilettos, and thinking about all the unnecessary torment I put myself through in my mind for something so silly.
Laughter has been incredibly cathartic when I’ve found myself in some of the most uncomfortable situations.
In fact, I believe laughter is a powerful, healer.
One of the most important lessons that I have learned over the years is to laugh more, and chill out!
I took myself way too seriously for so many years and fell into the trap of trying to be perfect.
If you can learn to accept your imperfections, forgive yourself more often, and change your dialogue of constant self-criticism so you can speak to yourself in a more loving way, I believe that miraculous shifts can occur in your life.
Do you know that laughter is spirit?
In fact, there is nothing heavy about spirit. So the question is, why are we so hard on ourselves?
So the next time you slip up, go easy on yourself.
Allow yourself to be a human being, be willing to find the humour in it all, and try again next time.
I hope this message empowers you to experience more joy and laughter in your life.

To lots of joy, silliness and laughter!
Have you ever wondered if you exercised enough today? Drank enough water? Ate enough healthy foods? Have you ever worried if you’re a good boss, employee, mother, partner, or caregiver?
Struggling to find a balance with all of these things, and all the other fun thoughts that like to plague our minds, can turn you inside out with guilt.
Am I doing enough?
Maybe what you really need is harmony.
The constant struggle to find balance can disconnect you from your heart. And, when you fall out of alignment with your inner self, you’ll feel the strain in your life.
Seeking balance by piling on more, lends the perspective that your life is fragmented, compartmentalized.
It is this lineal perception that leads to thoughts of scarcity and self judgement.
You might often think thoughts such as, ‘I’m not good enough’, or ‘I’m not doing enough’, and no matter how much you try to find that elusive balance, you’ll never truly find it.
For many years I too fell into this vicious trap of self judgement. Through further introspection I realized that, more than anything in the world, I wanted to feel connected and in integrity with my heart and soul.
Think about the moments that you felt connected to your heart. What did it feel like for you? Did you feel lighter? More clear? More at ease?
By striving for balance, you’re taking matters into your own hands focusing on the ‘outer’, and essentially go into ‘over-doing’ mode.
You will immerse yourself in all sorts of activities (I’ve been there too!), believing that in some way, it will make your life feel more in unison. But it doesn’t, it just clutters and convolutes your life, and it can’t, because the harmony you seek is within.
When you are connected to your heart, you are in integrity with your true self and everything flows more smoothly.
There is less inner resistance, and pivoting back and forth vibrationally. Every part of you comes into agreement with single minded focus because you are connected.
Harmony is the goal.
I encourage you to invite more harmony into your life by connecting with your inner self more frequently.
Daily meditation and stillness works magic. There are many ways to tune in, find the one that brings you the most joy, peace and sense of inner fulfillment.

To harmonious living,
We all have an inner teacher that sits quietly in the background and observes us. A teacher that possesses an omnipotent wisdom.
It transcends all intellect, logic, and ego. It is also fully accessible to us all.
It has the key to revealing who you really are, and what you’re here to do.
It longs to help guide you in making decisions; decisions that will help you flourish into the person that you were created to be.
However, it will only reveal itself more clearly if we give it permission to do so, because it respects your free will to make choices on your own, without its help.
So you go through life making these decisions, carving out your plans of how things ‘should’ look like.
You go on living and enjoying your life, because after all, that’s what you’re here for, right?
If you were formless, how in the world would you enjoy this glorious, physical existence on Earth?
Yet even with your senses, that perception is so limited. And, your decisions are often dictated by what you can see, feel, or touch with these senses.
But what if there were a higher level of perception?
How would you activate your higher vision, and learn to live with higher thinking based on love so that you can access your limitless self?
If you have the courage to surrender, to no longer control your outcome, you will begin to tap into the wisdom of your higher self and access the guidance of your inner teacher.
So how do you summon it? How do you awaken it?
When you declare that you are willing to see things differently and that you don’t have all the answers.
Not knowing is the portal to accessing infinite intelligence.
The inner teacher will emerge and start to guide you to higher levels of perception and consciousness based on your permission, because we have free will.
Through my own personal experience having a daily, spiritual practice of meditation and stillness has helped me to check in with my internal guidance in order to hear it more clearly. I’ve found that it keeps me rooted, and more importantly, makes me feel supported.
Knowing that I have this guidance available to me anytime, gives me self-confidence in making decisions and trusting in my intuition overall.
You too, have this incredible reservoir of information accessible to you, because we all do!
All you have to do is ask it to show you the way.
Now over to you — do you rely on, and trust, your inner guidance when making decisions? If so, I’d love to hear about how it has benefited your life.
I’d love to hear from you!
