Self-care is a strong theme for a lot of us right now. Learning to say no to people is one way that you can start saying yes to yourself more often. It can be hard to say no in any situation for a bunch of reasons. A friend may ask a favour, family need you, you get invited somewhere, your work wants you to do overtime for no extra pay or perhaps paid very well. But something inside you is saying: "I can't do this." You then look for an excuse to justify your no. You scroll t
A really important post on the importance of self-care right now: Firstly, there is a LOT of intense energy emanating from the US at the moment. We all take turns holding the baton for the shifting and transformation of this world. We all have our issues that need to be cleared and released. We do this personally, we do this as family groups, as local communities, we do this as individual nations, and we do this as a humanity on one Earth. That clearing has a ripple affect on
With all the madness happening around us it's easy to feel like the world has lost the plot. But it is being turned upright again after a long time of things being upside down. Just like a snow dome being flipped, there's a period that feels like mayhem but all renovations and transformations go through this, be they personal, social or global.

The 'rubber' bit makes it sound like the bullets are like a non-harmful kids toy but it hurts like hell with major immediate and long-term medical side-effects. The US mainstream news media are reporting that the water cannons are being used to put out fires. This is not true. Th
How are you all feeling? The US election result has released a tsunami of emotions within millions of people: shock, sadness, grief, joy, elation, relief, fear, anger, powerlessness, liberation. And because emotions are deeply personal, regardless of the external trigger, every emotion is connected to a personal memory or belief, and dredges up like memories and beliefs. So you think you're crying about this thing or angry about that thing but if the emotion is intense, then
This US election was never about which leader would create the best policies, deliver on their promises or help the most people. This election, more than any other before it, was about people, regular people, stepping into their power and realising: “I’ve had enough. I’ve had enough of the system, the lies, the corruption. We deserve better!” That’s why Bernie had such a huge following. That’s why Trump is President-Elect right now. Not because he’s going to miraculously chan
Tomorrow, or maybe today by the time you read this, the people of the United States of America go to vote, in an election that seems as far from united as one can get. But underneath all of the opposing beliefs, underneath all of the anger and emotion, underneath all of the terrible truths and outright lies, there is a strong river that is very united. That river is made up of everybody's energy, and everybody's energy right now is surging with a power that has been gradually
