Why reinvention is natural and necessary, the benefits and how to
Just as nature trees loose their leaves to almost bare and blossom brilliantly and effortlessly
Are you following nature’s flow in your life?
Creating a new version of YOU. Why is it important to self-express who you are presently and at any given
Take a little moment and think back of the 2012 version of you. Think of the thoughts you were pondering, the type of challenges or life demands you were facing (i.e job, financial, home, relationship or personal changes). Now think of the 2011 version of yourself and so on and on. Now my question to you is: who is the REAL YOU today?
How much of the old you have you let go and still carrying around like a monkey on your back getting a free ride and making your life a lot heavier than needed?
Have you noticed that nature goes through incredible replenishing cycles? Rivers dry out and overflow. Trees loose their leaves to almost bare and blossom brilliantly and effortlessly. Animals shed coats and grow new soft and shiny fur. And with humans, not only our bodies go through dramatic changes but so does our personal soul.
Just as nature we must remember to shed the old and embrace the new and for us ladies, it is so important to not only embrace it but also to celebrate the heck of it!, as this is where our feminine power, beauty and grace rest.
Body perfection is not the foundation of high self-esteem!
Are you happy with your current mirror’s reflection?
Are you working out consistently or going from diet to diet and are still not happy with the results?
Do you magnify certain parts of your body and are unhappy with what you see?
Did you know that 8 out of 10 women and 4 out of 10 men are not happy with their current image?
Our bodies are beautifully wired and every thought, movement & emotion has a big part in forming ‘our’ self-image, which then creates as our self-esteem.
Body perfection is not the foundation of high self-esteem! Hmm, you ask. Yes, that is correct. Flick through your favourite magazines and you will find a number of celebrities who battle to match their own mental self-image. You would be surprised to know that in an interview with Nicole Kidman she talked a lot about how she wished to have looked differently; to have had more curves like Marilyn Monroe. In an interview with Cherlize Theron she said that she did not see herself as beautiful! Yes, it seems strange that most of these body-beautiful women are not content with their outer image.
Whether you want to change your body or just come to terms with who you are, isn’t it time to start accepting and embracing your body?
It is very rare that someone is 100% satisfied with their body. There will always be something we all wish to change now and in the future.
You often hear me talk about dressing to enhance and learning to flaunt ‘your’ assets and the art of optical illusion to camouflage those less flattering areas (which we all have).
So how can we begin to appreciate and accept our bodies just the way they are?
Hi my beautiful!
I woke up with a vision today. What it would be like if as a woman we never judge our bodies (ourselves all together) ever again. If we never cringed about our lines on our face, the cuddliness around our bodies, and as the years mature we became more fanatically in love with who we are.
Hmm can such vision be real? .. I wonder ..
Have a beautiful weekend and love you all!
Welcome to a fabulous New Year full of light and opportunities for us all.
It is a chance to energetically (or literally) clean house and discard or upgrade certain areas of your life that are no longer current or do not serve you. The Mayan's predicted 2012 to be be a pinnacle year for collective and personal transformation; the end and start of a new era. So ... how would you like to leap into your pool of yummy possibilities?
For me this year is about letting go of all the parts that do not resonate fully with my brilliance and love. It is about embracing the fullness of my being, having the courage to play a bigger game, believing in myself and transforming and touching the hearts of women at a global scale. I am excited and to be completely honest a little nervous. It's time for me to dive into my pool of adventures!
In this note let’s talk about ways we can be more authentic, kind and loving to ourselves. If you wish to welcome more kindness in your life, more romance, more playfulness, more abundance, a special someone and burst of joy this year, let’s start by celebrating the most amazing person .. YOU!
I wish you so much magic, softness and juiciness for 2012! I truly love you.

So for me this Christmas, I wish recapture lightness, laughter and innocence of a child. The same child that cracked-up laughing so hard that her cheeks would get sore, the girl that laid on her bed daydreaming about all the possibilities that existed as she stared up at the stars and saw life with total awe.
Whatever you are doing this Holiday season I want to personally wish you all the MAGIC that your heart can hold.
Thank you for being the amazing unique YOU!
WOW, only one day until Christmas and I love the energy this time of the year brings … with all the joy and magic you see in children’s eyes. It reminds me on how innocent and light I was and how much less I worried about life. Isn’t it interesting that as we grow-up we begin to stress, judge more & worry often and all the time forgetting about the magic and laughter we once embodied?
