How do we deal with the stress that comes with those days when we have too much on? In this video, I share a tip that I’ve found helpful in these situations. Sometimes in these situations, we try to do everything at once, but end up not doing anything very well.

However, if you stop, take some gentle breaths, and tune in through your heart, you can ask for what you really need to do now. It might only take a moment. Just a breath. Once you do this, you may find that some things you thought essential just fall away.

Even if you’re still busy, you’ll be acting more from a space of connection, peace, and acceptance of your limits. You might even find that you get more done.

 

News of my travels

I’m heading off to Ireland on June 11th and getting very excited about this. I’ll be visiting the ancient sites at Newgrange and the Hill of Tara on the way to the Moynalty Healing Festival on the weekend of the 17th and 18th of June.

Healing is a word that can mean different things to different people, so I want to explain what I mean by this. When I talk about healing, I mean coming to wholeness and love. This is not the same thing as fixing or curing from physical ailments, although sometimes that happens as well.
Watch this video to hear more about this.

Here is the link I mention in this video to find out more about how to work with me.

I’d love to hear your views or experiences on healing or whether you have any requests for topics for me to cover in my videos. Please comment below.

Welcome to the new look and direction of my work and new name … Wild Heart Woman. This is more a refinement, though,  than a completely new one. As many of you will know, I’ve a great love of wild places, and in one of my past roles, I guided people to wild and beautiful places in Tasmania and Western Australia.

Now this work has come home again and is part of my work here, initially through internal journeys of connection with the instinctual nature, and with the natural world. The vision is to also hold groups and programs in wild places.

So many of us are deprived of nature connection, and many have lost touch with our own natural rhythms. So part of my work now is in this re-connection, with love, with our own natures, with each other, and with the natural world.

I’ve recorded a video that speaks to this need for us to honour our natural rhythms. I hope you enjoy it and find it nourishing. As always, I love to hear back from you, so look forward to any comments you’d like to leave on the post, or via email.

I invite you to subscribe to my You-tube channel for more videos along this theme.

Work with me

I am taking enrollments for the online Wild Heart Program. If you’d like to know more, ask any questions and find out whether it’s for you, simply contact me here with a short message and we’ll sort out a 30 minute intro session. It’s free.
With love,

Lure

I appreciate it when you share

It sure is a big time at the moment, with all that’s going on in the world. Our news feeds are dominated by what is happening in the US, and the ripples of this throughout the world.

Often in these times of greater intensity and need for action, our self-care can get dropped.   Today I have a short video (3.31 mins) about the importance of self-care. It’s a priority if we want to move forward with strength, power and kindness in the work that we do.

I hope you enjoy it.

New working space in Sydney

I now have a lovely room to work from in Little Bay, in Sydney. We have ocean views and the cool breeze from the water.  Very excited about this! If you’re in Sydney, and want to meet in person, please be in touch.

Changes on the way!!!

You will very notice soon some changes with my newsletters, my website, and on social media.   I am working with a designer this very week to get some new designs for my biz, and the Wild Heart Woman programs.  Stay tuned!

Work with me

Do you want support staying true to your heart and acting with purpose, clarity and kindness  – and want to experience energy and alchymiec work on the way to this? You might be interested in my Wild Heart Program, or perhaps you want to start with a single Restore and Renew session.    You might just want to learn more and ask any questions.

We meet via video call or phone for a 30 minute free session, or in person in Little Bay.  You can contact me here.

You haven’t heard from me for a little while, as I’ve been making my way to Sydney.  It’s such a strange time, that period between Christmas and New Year, here in Australia. There is a kind of pause between the old and the new year.

Some years ago, I visited Broome, a gorgeous beach town in the far north-west of Australia.  The tidal changes are enormous there. One day I walked out from Town beach, along the mud flats, when the tide was extra low. The flats seemed to go forever.

I walked out, and out, and out, following the receding tide.  There is a moment there, where the outgoing tide halts, and hasn’t yet turned to the incoming tide.

A moment of stillness; a pause.

Then the tide starts to come in, getting fuller and faster as the flow increases.   It can take some fast walking to get back to shore ahead of it.

My year so far has been like this tide. I am trusting this flow, just as I relaxed into the pause.

No plans, no projections.  Just being with what is at the start of the year, and feeling the flow start to come, as the year takes hold and my next steps are revealed.

I’ve been catching up with family and friends here. I’ve been swimming in the ocean.

I’ve been allowing my dreams and visions to emerge for this new place, with a gentle welcome, in their own time.

I’m in the right place. I’m ready.

How is your entry into this new year going?  Your next phase?   Please share with us below.

Want to work with me?

If you want support to drop more deeply into your own skin, to clear your inner space and open to what might be waiting for you next, let’s talk.  You might be interested in my Wild Heart Program, or perhaps you want to start with a single Restore and Renew session.    You might just want to learn more and ask any questions. We can meet via video call or phone for a 30 minute free session.  Contact me here and we’ll sort out a time.

I’m moving!

Yes, I’m leaving my beloved Tasmania and moving to Sydney.  I’m right in the middle of the packing, getting ready for the removalists to come next week.

I’ve been stressed and tired, wondering how I’ll get it all done in time.

And yet there’s been beauty amongst it all. I saw these outside my friend’s house as I went for a cuppa and break from my packing.

One thing that’s struck me is just how important self-care is in times like these.

Not just for a move, but every time we step up to something bigger, increase our commitments or become more visible.

It’s important, essential even.

The greater the demands on us, the more support we need.

For me that’s meant eating well, having more regular body work, and meeting friends for tea and farewells.

I visited my favourite trees in the gardens here.

And went for walks on the beach. I visited Clifton Beach after an afternoon with friends and music last weekend. I relaxed and slept so deeply afterwards.

This time has also been about considering what type of support I need, and asking for it.  Asking in a spiritual sense, as well as in practical ways.  I quite literally couldn’t do this move with out all this help – the cleaning, lifting, mowing, company,  music and heart -nourishment.

I’m grateful for it al.

I’m wondering … What do you do to care for yourself in times of extra demand? Please share with us below.

An update

There’ll be a new look website and new name coming in the new year.  Exciting changes on the way!

What about the programs and sessions?

The Wild Heart Program and sessions will be available again the week before Christmas and in the new year. Please email me at lurewishes@gmail.com if you’d like to book in a conversation about this or if you have any questions.

When we embark on a healing and transformational journey, all going well, we start to shift.  We feel clearer, more alive and more sensitive to life in the best possible way. Life becomes clearer with a sharper focus. We see things we might not have noticed before.

wild-flowers-flowers-plant-macro-40797

At the same time, other aspects of our life can become tougher.

Our relationships can become strained; conflicts may arise. We might even wonder what we are doing in that relationship.  We have new perspectives and can see what is not working. We may start to point the finger at our loved ones, pointing out the various ways they are “wrong”.

This can be distressing for all involved

Here are some things I’ve found important to keep in mind to help through this stage – and it is a stage.

blossoms

 

Gratitude

Our transformation is not really something we can control.  We can bring ourselves to it, we can commit and show up, but at the end of the day, the sometimes miraculous nature of the shifts are not something we can contrive.  In the face of this, our only true response is gratitude and wonder.

The other side of gratitude is to acknowledge the level of support you have to allow you to make the shifts you have.  I remember one day some years ago, feeling very alone and unsupported, when suddenly my perspective shifted and I saw all that was supporting me every single day. All the people, plants, animals each day to allow me to sit on that bus and be carried home. The food on my table; the farmers, sales assistants, cleaners, the banks. All of it.

I am grateful for all the support I have had in my spiritual journey; it is a privilege to have the time and space to give to that. I’m grateful for my teachers, my classmates and the healers who have assisted me along the way.

It’s important to remember all the people right now supporting you in your journey; there may be more than you think.  Often it’s our loved ones who have supported us the most – through child-care, emotional or financial support, or carrying the load of other things to free our time.

Understanding and compassion

Sometimes when we shift, we are aware of the changes, and how we were prior to the work. But oftentimes, our new state becomes our new normal, and we forget what or experience as life before this.  It’s important to stay conscious of the changes we have made, as we consider our loved ones.

If we’ve been working with a teacher or practitioner, then we are mentored and held through this process.  Or partner, friends and family members don’t always have that same support.  What’s needed here is understanding, patience and love.  Now it’s time to hold the space for our loved ones, not as a practitioner, of course, but as a lover, friend and partner. This is love in action.

Seeing with fresh eyes

So often we get into patterns of relating with the people in our lives that don’t always reflect our best selves.  As we change we can start to look outward in blame. We might experience ourselves freshly, but they haven’t quite made the change.

What if we could allow each other to be different in each moment?  To allow ourselves to meet all in our lives with fresh eyes and heart?  What if we see each other with free hearts? What would be possible then?

Forgiveness

Life is an ongoing practice of forgiveness – of our partners and loved ones, and forgiveness of ourselves. We’ve all done the above; we may well continue to do so. Let’s just pick ourselves up, forgive ourselves and each other, and keep walking.

Love in action is not always easy; but it’s worth it.

The Wild Feminine in Relationship

A three session relationship journey, for women who want to deepen their relationship with themselves and with others.

  • Learn to clear and free the space up for yourself within relationships
  • Learn to nourish your own heart so that you come to your relationships full and free
  • Clear old patterns of relating, from childhood, and brought down through the generations
  • Find the space for new possibilities, more love and understanding

The sessions will consist of energy work, plus a journey to access your wild heart wisdom.

This is a new program which will be offered on an ongoing basis soon, and will be priced at $450 at least.  For the next 3 weeks, I’m offering this as an introductory offer, for $350. 

*note* to do this program in person in Hobart, I suggest you contact me as soon as you can, so that we can complete in person, before my move to Sydney.  It’s also available via distance.

To find out more or to sign up contact me here.  We can have a chat to find out whether it’s for you and answer any questions you might have. If you know you;re ready to get started, send me a message and we’ll get started.

I have read some wonderful books in recent months: When Women Rise Up Rooted, by Sharon Blackie,  Reclaiming the Wild Soul, by Mary Thompson Reynolds, and Big Magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert.

One thing that jumped out at me was that they each posed the  question … What if the earth also loved you?

So often when we love the natural world, we can get caught up in the struggle. The knowledge of what is has been lost or damaged; the wanting to find solutions.

Of course we want to find solutions.

But sometimes this can carry a great burden, as we take it as a personal responsibility.  What if there is another way to be with this, and to take our part?

A way founded on our interconnection with the natural world.

We can let go, we can dance more and play more. We are restored as we work to restore. We move from love.

There are people who say we only need to love. But love is a verb. When we are in connection, then it is natural to also act; to find the expression of that love.

It might be environmental activism, gardening, healing, teaching or art. Whatever it is, it will come from connection and feel alive and free, even when challenging.

What if we let the earth assist us?

We can ask the earth, the trees and mountains and the water for guidance.

Guidance from your deepest true heart,  from the interconnection of the world;  the world where your own true nature and the natural world are deeply, naturally, intrinsically connected.

I invite you to try this this week. To take your question or issue and offer it to the water, the trees, the mountains or the springs and let the answer come to you.  I’d love to hear how you go.

What is your relationship to the natural world?

Do you speak to the trees, the mountains, the lakes or the earth? Please share with us below.

Would you like to join me in the 6 – week Wild Heart Program?

One of my greatest joys is hearing about the changes women are going through as they work with me.  Mauria has recently started the Wild Heart Program and wrote to me after her first week, the Woman of Fire. She has written this beautiful poem, the first, she told me, in many years.

There is a fire in your heart said the wise old woman

the fire is gone I replied, and looked away
here is the fire, said the wise old woman

as her hand reached down inside of me
take it, said the wise old woman, it is yours once again
and I looked, as the fire burned bright in her outstretched hand

there is a fire in my heart, I said to the wise old woman
and now it burns …

The other day I went for a walk on a beach near me. It was late afternoon, and the light was fading for the day.

As I stood on the point, looking out towards the ocean, I almost swooned with the beauty.

On one side, looking to the ocean, the light was silvery, shimmering on the water. I could hardly tell where the silver water met the sky.

sandy-bay-2

There was a multitude of shades shimmering within this silver light.

On the other side, the water reflected the colours of the softer side of the sunset, the pinks and blues of the eastern sky.  The colours rippled and danced with the moving water.

I had a few things on my mind, some concerns in my heart.

As I stood there, immersed in all that beauty, something shifted within me. it was as though the water washed right through me, bring with it clarity and peace.

A great ease filled my being.

A sense of abundance and deep trust in life; of possibilities and support beyond my knowing.

Sometimes we only need to ask, to open up to these great forces in life, and relax into our place in it all. There is such wonder and beauty in this world.

Introducing my Individual Wild Heart Program – enrollments now open

In my last article I shared Holly’s response to the Wild Heart Program.

The Wild Heart Program is for you if … You know what it feels like to live vibrantly, freely and with passion.  Yet in the knocks and spills of life, you have lost touch with this. When you’re dealing with anxiety, self-doubt or fear it can be hard to get on with what matters most to you. Maybe a painful relationship, family issues, or work-related difficulties have stopped you in your tracks.

Whatever it is, you long to find that spark and joy again in life, where magic and mystery exist along-side your every day life.
