Welcome to my mindful, heartful, grateful blog!
Hello! Short and sweet is the theme... It is my hope that here, you will find words that heal, encourage and support. Plus mindful musings that ground us all, uplift us and expand our collective view. Enjoy...
(14/11/17) I see so many people who are, unknowingly, to some degree, closed off, hardened and defended.... who are tightly closed, their barriers erect, walled off, unable to give from the heart and unable to receive from the heart. These folk are only 'ok' with head stuff and practicals and logicals and rationals. Anything else - whooooah!
If this is you, sometimes, often, occasionally, I wonder... can you decide to choose another way? Because the hardened off way is extremely bad for you and for your family and for the community. It creates much unhappiness. Much illness in fact.
When we begin to soften our hearts, just a tad at first, we are kinder, more compassionate, more fully human. And right now, you and I need this, as does our entire planet.
It starts with me, and with you. It starts at home. We can let go a little. We don't need to shut down. We can allow our natural human light to shine. Mindfulness practice allows for this. Little by little we soften, but not in a pushover way. We soften in a secure way. Try it.

(6/11/17) I can't help noticing the rise in anxiety - there's a lot of it about with the changing of the seasons. The dark nights are here and nature is prepping for a good, long, peaceful slumber....
We, meanwhile, are filling our heads and hearts with fearful complicated stories. Can we simply notice when we are doing this? Just notice and let go. Thats all. Thats it. Notice. Without more story adding. Without a judgement. Notice and let go gently.
