Blissin’ Out. Do you know the feeling, when time no longer exists? When your mind has no where to wander? You are completely here, right in the now. This, my friend, is what I like to call “Blissing Out”. It’s that feeling of pure, unadulterated joy & I am devoting a regular segment of the blog to sharing with you the things that have had me in such a state of bliss each week. So sit down, get comfy and let’s bliss out together, man!
Trusting the Process
The last few weeks I have found myself attaching, grasping, forcing, pushing.
I have loved every second of birthing this blog and creating beautiful content for YOU. However, since launching this baby out into the world these icky feelings have been boiling quietly beneath the surface.
This week they began to bubble over.
I am so eager for this beautiful space to touch the world. I want to make a difference, to help people just like YOU!
But alongside these somewhat altruistic desires I have discovered there is something else driving me. Something else that just doesn’t feel right.
I have become so attached to this blog. It feels like it has merged into my being. We have become one.
I am the blog & the blog is me.
Clearly, this attachment has sent me a little kooky. It has sent me into a state of striving, forcing and pushing. I have found myself desperate for the blog (me) to succeed.
But at the start of the week I decided ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
This pushing didn’t feel good. This forcing was stressin’ me out. This attachment was draining my soul.
The answer? Trusting the process. Putting my faith in the Universe. Sinking down into the moment.
Yes, I want this blog to do great things, touch lots of people and help me live the life I want to live.
But to be honest I KNOW THIS WILL HAPPEN.
I have this deep, deep belief that I have beautiful, big things to offer the world. This space is the start of something magnificent. I am beginning to live out my purpose right here, right now. Knowing this, why do I fret? Why am I trying to force?
The following words from A Course in Miracles have been my guiding light this week.
“Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait, and wait without anxiety”
My tribe will come. My audience will grow. My message will be spread.
Whilst this all happens I must enjoy the journey.
So this week I took a break. I eased my foot off the accelerator. I softened into life.
A lot of good shit happened.
Moral of the story? Stop pushing. Soften. Trust the process!
OTHER BLISSFUL TIDBITS
1. Yoga Teacher Training
On Saturday I began my Yoga Teacher Training. After sharing the whole day with 20-something other like-minded women all I can say is…
This little gem will take up the next 9 months of my life.
And I know they are going to be the most soul-stirringly, raw, amazing and intensely self-focused months of my life.
This is the start of something BIG! I can feel it, Baby!
As I learn I will no doubt be keen to share it all with you. So watch this space for more yoga goodness!
2. The Pale Blue Dot
A beautiful friend of mine posted the video above on his wonderful blog this week.
Although I had seen it before, it still gave me shivers.
This video is a beautiful reminder of perspective. Our experience as human beings and everything that man-kind has ever accomplished has taken place on Earth – “a tiny mode of dust suspended in a sunbeam”.
We are but a very, very, very small part of what makes up this amazing Universe. Yet rarely do we ever contemplate anything outside of this “pale blue dot”.
3. Mind Body Spirit Festival & other Sunday Fun
Yesterday I ventured to Brisbane’s Mind Body Spirit Festival.
I had a Psychic Reading (she confirmed exactly what I felt was coming my way). I bought some crystals. I spent some quality time with my Dad.
It was a beautiful morning followed by a lovely slow and sleepy Sunday afternoon.
A good book + an outdoor nap + raw chocolate treats.
So I must reiterate what I said last week…
Sunday I love you more and more each time we meet.

Ahhhhhhh the week that was!
Breathe it all out. The good and the bad.
Let’s clear our bodies for the week to come. Cause it’s gonna be FABULOUS!
