We can only accept diversity by seeing our own uniqueness. We have to see ourselves as different. See that we are all different. That we are each unlike the other not just in appearance but in so many ways.Read More
You can imagine the implications for wrong labelling when it comes to what we put into our body. And this is where we ALL need to take stock of the importance of labelling. I have never been so amazed at food and beverage labelling Until recently in all my years I knew of labelling and reading the label. But now that I am creating a product that requires a TRUTHFUL label it is astounding as to what is actually out there!Read More
We are each a piece of the whole. Together we create the most impact in healing and finding positive paths forward. Whole-ful is a collective of like minds or like intentions that sees it become more than it once was, and therefore it grows in strength. And this is the greatest gift of culture, its instinct to connect, reconnect and make whole again.Read More
“Addiction is a strong word,” says Alan Greene, M.D., “In medicine we use ‘addiction’ to describe a tragic situation where someone’s brain chemistry has been altered to compel them to repeat a substance or activity despite harmful consequences. This is very different than the casual use of ‘addiction’ (‘I’m addicted to “Game of Thrones!”’).” “So, I’m serious when I say that evidence is mounting that too much added sugar could lead to true addiction,” says Greene.
We have lost the art of getting down and dirty with life. We are so clean. And we have become too clean. Our sterile world has almost given the 'bad germs' the upper edge on us. Every time we are trying to eliminate bacteria we are destroying the good guys as well as the bad and we are allowing ourselves to become so sterile that we are losing our ability to defend.Read More
In all my hours of Counselling and working with people in wellness one thing stood out, that most people who had issues or dramas, challenges or ‘shit’ to deal with in their life, had poor eating habits or their own self issues that resulted in poor eating habits. Now you may not think they go hand in hand BUT they hold a huge and direct link. One that is becoming more apparent day by day.Read More
I know you have heard it before - but I will ask you to read it again. We simply cannot and will never be able to please everyone all the time, nor please most most of the time, at best we may please some some of the time! We simply cannot continue to go down a path of doing it all - to have it all - because this mentality is killing us!Read More
Embrace - connection is about embracing. It asks us to open our heart, to make sure our shawls are draped around our shoulders and not covering our chest. It allows us to stay open to all thats in front of us and ready to become us. It allows us to embrace others fully with our arms out spread and hearts open.
As with all things wellness, there is only YOUR way. The way in which you approach sleep, and connect with sleep has to be conducive to only you. There are so many ways to sleep, styles of sleep, patterns for sleep and each of them are only going to work for that person, we simply have to begin to become more conscious of our need to be individual, that we need our own food plan, exercise plan, wellness plan and sleep plan.Read More
Yes exercise and gut microbiota are hugely aligned and they help keep the first two functioning. So the gut wouldn't be the same without exercise. Its stimulation in movement and the replenishing oxygen helps to stimulate the gut microbiota and assist with its continual growth and renewal. Our gut bacteria renews constantly and quickly if it is function with optimum health. It loves to be replenished and renewed and it the flow is happening and all things working properly, we find ourselves working to great gut benefits.Read More
Stress is at the root of many if not most of all our wellness issues. That's a bold statement but its true. Of all the people I have seen and continue to see over many years talking about wellness or those seeking counselling in general, stress is always a huge factor that is revealed. It's so crafty it appears in many areas of life, not just one, and it can take hold with a vice like grip that locks out solutions.Read More
For centuries diets have been used as a word and way in which we control eating. For some it was a word that we had to use. We had to be on a diet of some description in order to be 'doing what was expected' for us to be in shape. Being on a diet was trendy. For many others it was a word they pained to use as it brought more agony than success.Read More
Contrary to what was believed in the past, they believe that carbonated beverages can have a negative effect on the digestive process. The carbon dioxide present in these drinks increases the acidification of gastric juices and accelerates their production, which also accelerates digestion but also causes acid reflux, acidity, and absorption problems, which can be especially painful for people that suffer from gastritis and stomach ulcers.Read More
Ask any person of their wants and they can rattle off a list as long as their arm. But to ask of what we simply need, is another story. Aside from stating the obvious of air and food and water, very few of us can identify what our body needs, what our mind needs, and rarely what our soul needs are.The issue with this is a key factor in determining wellness. Because true wellness is based on need not want.Read More
When you're a creator, stories come to you asking to be told.They come begging you to pull them from within you, and reveal them to all those around. They come already formed as a piece of the threads of life. They are already a part of you, almost a deep memory waiting to be pulled again to life. They come seeking you because you are the only one who knows exactly how to bring it to life.Read More
The energy that ultimately creates life. It is this energy that we all hold within, that if we take the time to nurture within ourselves can provide a joy and gift to those around us. An energy that protects as much as it nurtures. An energy to soothes and heals. That can reconnect us to an inner peace of compassion.Read More

Despite this, here I am writing another one, because I want to be my kinda clear as to whats in JUN and why each aspect of it was chosen to become the creation for your well BEING.Read More
If it isn't enough that we are working to know our own inner space, every day we are working this into a community, into relationships, into the movement of those around us. If you can imagine right now the sun and the moon and the planets and the stars all rotating around each other yet at the same time being themselves - well this is exactly what we are all doing here, within our own self, and moving around each other. As above, so below.Read More
Alchemy is not really about creating, It is the art of discovering creation within all things.
An alchemist, sees all things within creation and allows them space to become. Allowing ourselves to create without boundaries. To take risks in order to discover what lies within.
As I pulled on this thread of success, it became more and more apparent to me, that yes, there are those who find success, create success, make success, through doing. Through business, through connections and networks there are many who have made great wealth and some of these have used that to impact the lives of others.Read More
