Dear fellow journeyers into the void

By |2020-07-09T21:50:29+02:00July 9th, 2020|Random musings|

A message to my fellow journeyers into the void of uncertainty I'm sure there is great value in uncertainty, yet I have always struggled to embrace it. I'm sure it is wonderful to be able to enter the void where nothing makes sense and the way forward is obscured, with nothing but happiness and courage in your heart. I [...]

The day I wrote a Letter to the Universe

By |2020-07-05T11:26:38+02:00July 5th, 2020|Random musings|

The day I wrote a Letter to the Universe (and changed everything, forever) There I was, broke again, worried about the noisy choir bells of SMS-notifications as those deductions get made from my bank account, ringing in yet another month-end, and someone told me to write a Letter to the Universe. I didn’t really think it would help, but [...]

The 5 secret building blocks of manifestation

The five secret building blocks of successful manifestation There are five secret building blocks that have to be stacked correctly in order to manifest successfully.

The 7 Ways you are Wasting Time (without realising)

By |2020-07-05T10:45:25+02:00July 5th, 2020|Random musings|

The 7 Ways you are Wasting Time (without even realising it) We often think of "Wasted time" as time spent in mindless things like Facebook games or watching TV or just sitting around aimlessly, or waiting for the doctor (I mean, why are they almost always running behind schedule?). But actually "wasted time" might not be the obvious things you think about [...]

Thinking about Money in a way that empowers us

By |2020-07-05T11:14:01+02:00July 5th, 2020|Random musings|

Let's start thinking about Money in a way that actually empowers us There is this yucky feeling that is attached to wanting money - almost as if you’re admitting to being totally shallow and unspiritual to even be focussing on that so much or at all. Have you ever felt that? The problem is that mixed-signal we’re sending out [...]

Use “Degree of Difference” to create a better future

By |2019-01-06T08:58:59+02:00January 6th, 2019|Random musings|

What is the degree of difference or the degree of sameness that you are introducing into your daily ordinary life today? Allow me to explain. Are you 100% happy with the bigger picture of your life in this present moment? Could your future do with some improvement? Yes? Drive to work or school or the grocery store using a [...]

I found the key to happiness, and it’s… immersion

By |2018-05-28T12:29:23+02:00May 28th, 2018|Random musings|

Immersion is the ability to go beyond the surface, the obvious, the superficial. It is the ability to really feel and affect the moment, to understand life and yourself to the fullest. When you are preoccupied with time or the common trappings of time, like the clock, diary, to-do lists and strategic plans filled with timeframes and action steps, [...]

Follow when it calls out to you

By |2018-04-02T10:01:57+02:00April 2nd, 2018|Random musings|

If you wake up one morning hearing a faint song on the wind that calls out to you, the only thing to do, of course, is to follow, straining your ears to make out the faint notes, the soft lyrics. It doesn’t matter if you have other stuff to do. It doesn’t matter if other people think you crazy. [...]

Dancing with water

By |2018-04-02T10:02:36+02:00January 25th, 2018|Random musings|

25 January 2018   There was a dead seal on the beach today. A sad husk, dark and sombre against the light sand. It was almost as if the waters wanted to deliver to me a message of death and decay. In the midst of an unprecedented drought here in the Western Cape where I live, it is no [...]

The Power of Consistency

By |2018-04-02T10:03:15+02:00January 24th, 2018|Random musings|

This weekend, I gave a talk to a lovely group of Annique consultants who wanted to kick off their 2018 in high gear. I told them my story, how I came to write a book and how hard and rewarding that was. The journey of putting your head down and keeping on keeping on, despite all of your doubts [...]
