What change are you navigating?

Dear <<First Name>>,

Every month I facilitate a practice community with a lovely group of like-minded people who want to be the best version of themselves and are committed to taking action to make it happen. We share our successes and our challenges, allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and open to the possibilities and opportunities that this brings.

Some of our goals are easily obtained, and others can seem to be take us off on a less than easy path, only to discover at some point in the future that we are grateful for what that has ultimately given us.

I have been sharing the story of my running a few times over this past year, having started to do parkrun in January (a 5km free timed run). The first 7 months were amazing and I really felt on a real momentum. Then I fell while playing soccer. It took me a little while to realise something wasn't quite right and I sought professional help. For the next couple of months I worked really hard to overcome the injury, and had to reduce my running for a while and gradually build my way back up again. This cycle happened a number of times - each time I got to a point where I could do parkrun again it didn't quite work out. I became impatient and frustrated, it seemed to be taking too long, I wanted to feel the way I felt previously and be back to where I had got. I had times where I wondered if it would ever happen. I reflected on why I wanted to be a runner and why it was important to me. This allowed me to commit to my goal, I knew it was possible, and I kept re-adjusting my mind-set to be fully supportive of what I wanted.

Last weekend I was able to run parkrun again easily and without any issues. I still have to work my way back to the same run fitness I had, but I know I have turned the corner. I am relieved and excited, but mostly I am thankful. I am thankful for the lesson of set-backs and to reflect again on the process of change - what powerful inner resources are within us to overcome whatever challenges we face. I am also thankful to share the journey with so many wonderful people, whether they are clients or friends. We are all doing the same thing - growing, evolving, being.

As always, keep up to speed with more regular updates on what I am up to on my facebook page.

Love and light,


Upcoming Events


The next workshop in Canberra is on December 17-18, hope to see you there! Facilitated by the awesome Rosi Pletzer, please visit her website for more details.

PSYCH-K® Practice Communities

After completing a Basic PSYCH-K® workshop you are welcome to join our Practice Communities that we run once a month, the next one scheduled for Sunday December 18, where we meet up, practice skills, ask questions and build your self-empowering beliefs to achieve what you want in life.
Diamond Belief Statements for November
For those of you who have completed PSYCH-K® training and have read my newsletter before, you know that each month I write down some diamond belief statements that I have balanced for myself, and if they resonate with you go ahead and balance for them for yourself! If you haven't completed PSYCH-K® training but you still love the idea of these belief statements being 100% true for you then just let me know, I can easily facilitate that for you.

On the topic of navigating change try the following:
  • I honor and embrace my frustration as a springboard to breakthrough
  • I identify any blocks to my greatness and easily transcend them
  • I move towards being the best I can be
  • I freely and easily become the greatness I am
  • I get/know how to be my greatness.

Awesome Recipes

Giant veg rosti with poached eggs, spinach and peas - Jamie Oliver!
Giant veg rösti

The kids ask me to make this every week!

600 gm potatoes
3 large carrots
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ lemon
extra virgin olive oil
olive oil
100gm frozen peas
100gm baby spinach
4 large free-range eggs
50gm feta cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Peel the potatoes and carrots, then coarsely grate them in a food processor or by hand on a box grater. Add a good pinch of salt, toss and scrunch it all together, then leave for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the mustard, a good squeeze of lemon juice, and a couple of lugs of extra virgin olive oil with a little pinch of salt and pepper in a medium bowl and put aside.
  2. Drizzle a really good lug of olive oil into a large bowl and add a good pinch of pepper. Handful by handful, squeeze the potato and carrot mixture to get rid of the excess salty liquid, then sprinkle into the bowl. Toss in the oil and pepper until well mixed, then evenly scatter it over a large oiled baking tray (roughly 30cm x 40cm). Roast for around 35 minutes, or until golden on top and super-crispy around the edges.
  3. Meanwhile, blanch the peas for a minute in a large pan of boiling salted water, then scoop out, add to the bowl of dressing and pile the spinach on top. Just before your rösti is ready, with the water gently simmering, crack in the eggs, poach to your liking, then carefully remove with a slotted spoon. Serve the rösti with the eggs on top. Quickly toss the salad together to dress it and scatter in piles on the rösti, then crumble over the feta and serve. I like to whack it in the middle of the table and let everyone dig in.
