Brandon Bays in London this weekend

I’m so excited! Brandon Bays, founder of The Journey, will be in London this weekend.

Brandon will be running a Journey Intensive workshop from Saturday 31 March to Sunday 1 April 2012.

As a Journey Practitioner I will be going to serve as a trainer. I always come back from Journey events feeling like I’ve been washed from the inside out. It is a really powerful and healing weekend and I can’t wait to be part of it.

Visit the Journey Intensive website to find out more about the event and how you can transform yourself using this amazing healing method. 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I hope to see you there.

Staying balanced in our busy lives

How can we keep ourselves balanced whilst leading a busy life?

I felt drawn to writing this blog post after a super busy few weeks. Trying to complete everything on my ‘to do’ list each day was exhausting. Spreading my energy too thinly left me feeling somewhat scattered.

It’s been a huge reminder for me to just stop. After taking the time to be still and quiet, I realised all the efforting wasn’t making me as effective as I could be. A question then arose; how can I use my energy in a more productive and graceful way? The answer was to ground myself and stay present. That way I can be the eye of the storm, the stillness amidst all the chaos. 

It has made it easier to let go of the need to complete trivial things and to focus on what actually feels right instead. I now feel as if I’m going with my flow, rather than against it.

At the top of my nurturing ‘to do’ list is to stop for at least ten minutes a day. It may not seem like much, but it’s easy to achieve and the benefits accumulate. By the end of the week I’m flourishing again.

The universe has given me a gentle nudge to be the observer and not the doer in my life. Just thinking about it makes me want to take a deep breath in…and out again – phew! You might like to do that yourself. Sometimes we need a reminder to just stop and spend some quality time with ourselves.

Here are some stillness tips that you can integrate into your day:

  • If you watch television to unwind, switch it off early for one night. Relax with a candle and soothing music instead.
  • Give yourself the gift of doing nothing each day for five minutes. Close your eyes and focus your attention inward.
  • Go outside and breathe in some fresh air. If you can’t get outside, open a window and do it instead. With each new breath, imagine yourself being replenished.
