If anyone needs me I’ll be right over here in my little yoga/ meditation/ jungle/ library/quiet corner - with my cacti, singing bowl, incense, crystals, books, all my favourite things. Only my wellies missing 😂
.
Spent the weekend decluttering, tidying and detoxing. Feels sooooooooo good to be clearing out and shifting. Almost done with the things.
.
What to clear out next?! The retrograde is real. Watch out you might be next 👀😂

Felt the need to post this ramble. I’d forgotten how bad the urge is with #rtv to do a million takes to get it right. NOT THE POINT. Do it and get it out there.
.
There’s a life lesson in there I’m sure 😂
.
If my random analogy made any sense...the Q I’m imaging is at the cinema by the way and the line is huge, I’ve been gone ages to go pee, but the good people wait patiently, don’t let anyone steal my spot and share their popcorn when I get back. Those are the people to stick with. They got your spot. 🙌🏼.

Some valuable life lessons from ol Baloo the bear this summer (have this song on repeat!)
.
“Oh man this is really living
So just try and relax, yeah cool it
Fall apart in my backyard
'Cause let me tell you something little britches
If you act like that bee acts, uh uh
You're working too hard
And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true...
The bare necessities of life will come to you.
.
After a lifetime of rushing about trying to do all the things, wanting to go to all the places..I’m learning I can live without filled up weekends, tickets to every outdoor thing and going to all the events. I 💜 it for sure but my body is forcing me to try a different way.
.
So I’m with you Baloo. I’m all about barefoot living, slow moving, friends that are family, wild swimming, pawpaws and jungle fruit, lazy lunches, simple pleasures.
.
Where can you slooooooww your s*it right down? 😁.

Those who know me know not to expect a functional me before 8 (who am I kidding 9)am.
.
I’ve never been a morning person and after years of waking up at 6am for a commute and desk job, this years biggest liberation has been waking up when I want!
.
I’ve gone through many iterations of morning routine from teaching yoga at 8am to working 11-11.
.
I’m finally settling into my energy fields and routine and while I’m still not the brightest bunny first thing, I’m finding a ritual that sets me up strong 💪🏻 for the day.
.
It all starts with mindset.....and if you want to know more jump on my email list as tomorrow’s email holds all my morning tricks to roll out of bed with a smile (I can’t promise a brushed mane that’s down to you 💆🏻‍♀️).

Every cloud has a silver lining. And the cloud that was a poorly chosen training is pure platinum for bringing these babes into my life. Witty, smart, badass women who have dealt with life love and everything in between and are 2 of the strongest women I know.
Shame we left the training before we learnt to take decent selfies 😂😂😂.

It’s not a coincidence that I had cranio-sacral therapy today right next to Primrose Hill and that afterwards I found myself sitting on the Hill overlooking London. (And on a bench where French - my soul language- was the word of the day!).
.
I later read that there is a Tumulus on the Heath known as Boudicca’s mound, supposedly where Queen Boudicca was buried (most sources say not but it’s become known as a sacred site).
.
This on the 8/8/18 a date where the earth aligns with the sun and the planets to create a portal for energy beams to come through - that’s some serious energy in the universe - are you feeling it too?
.
Also this week Venus entered my sign Libra which is causing some huge shifts of creativity, expression and energy.
.
All in all a time of energetic shifts and big change. I don’t know what it means yet or what will come next but I do know I’m being called to sloooooow down. I have 2 settings - Stop or GO! And I’m slowly learning there’s something in between.
.
Does anyone know more about the 8/8 date? ✨ Check out @mysticmamma and @crystalmuse_ for some soulful brilliant wisdom on what to do during this powerful time.

Wise advice from my fluffy friend. More ponderings from a pigeon in my email this week. Why a pigeon? Sign up 👆🏻and find out. It’s a story you couldn’t (and wouldn’t) make up!

My favourite thing about London is how it works the Beauty and Beast look with such ease - ugly 60s architecture (utopian vision at the time) mixed with tranquil water features and modern design.
.
Side note - I’ve been a member of the Barbican centre for more years than I care to remember, had the best dates here, concerts with friends, DJ set and classical Indian concerts with the parents !! It’s an institution, a charity I’m proud to support as it brings some of the best talent to London.
💜This city. 💜

Childs pose on my YTT was a pause in between vinyasa. Now it’s knees wide, body and heart surrendering to the ground, arms long, shoulders wide. Letting it all go.
.
This right here - childs pose for days, this is all I dream of, let alone getting back to a full practice!
.
I haven’t ventured onto my mat yet since some surgery last week but thanks to a beautiful reminder from the 👸🏼 of self care, yin and juicy rest @suziesmithyoga - this feels within reach. Even just being at the back of the room for the whole class in child’s pose is a-ok. Even with uncomfortable-ness and pain, because that’s life right??

A reminder of me in my happy place with my happy person. Today I needed to remember this.
.
There’s so much to be grateful for right now. And too much to tell on here right now because while the squares tell a story, a bigger, quieter life goes on outside it.
.
Grateful today for the NHS for supporting my loved ones, me and millions of others for 70 years #nhsturns70 #happybirthday #nhs .
A stroke and heart attack for my dad (99% recovered), friends with lifelong illnesses, many family members cared for by them and a few testing months for me. People are so quick to complain about how over worked and slow the nhs system is and how crap they can be. All I have seen is men and woman coming here from all over the world to serve a system they believe in and care about, even when it pays them f all. They work hard, smile, are caring (more tea miss?)
.
Yes it can be slow and painful at times. But imagine the work they do for us every day and we get this for free! Anyone who walks through our doors gets this. Show them some love 🙌🏼
.
This person who has been a rock to me for the past few months (and more!) so patient and unwavering - only making me laugh 5 times a day (the recommended minimum after an op) and giving me daily 💉
.
The ocean and the beach - and all the magical people who live near it (here’s lookin at you kid @sayyedatoo )
.
And the tribe of people who surround me with love, laughter and faith. I have my own little NHS support system right here. I hope you do too xx

When you get off the plane and go straight into speaking at 2 events. Reminds me how much I love what I do!
.
When I’m away from “work” and away from sharing, teaching, facilitating, I get the wobbles and start to doubt my message, my value and my offering.
.
And then I get back in front of people and I remember again.
.
Any other new entrepreneurs feel the same? 👀

Moody skies. Ocean living. This could definitely be the life.
