Allowing Change & An Update From Me (+Giveaway)

Allowing Change & An Update From Me (+Giveaway)

I have been writing on this for a little over 2.5 years. I started writing it when I joined Rachael McDonald's Bright Eyed Blog Hearted e-course. At the time I was definitely bright eyed, blog hearted. I was taking small steps, gently tracing the edges of my comfort zone. And gradually, I began to explore what lay outside these boundaries. 

Little did I know back then, that the humble beginnings of a little blog centred around mindful mornings, was going to be a catalyst for so many things. In the last 6 months, since moving to Japan, I have felt big energetic shifts. Everything is constantly in flux no matter how big or small. I am in a sense of deep gratitude for simply allowing myself to be in these spaces of constant change, free-form creation and intuition. 

And so, today, I have a few updates that I would love to share. Some of you may have received the initial updates in my latest Intuition Notes newsletter a month ago, but I am finally ready to share it now that the finishing touches have been completed! Yay!!

Seeing The World With Childlike Curiosity

Seeing The World With Childlike Curiosity

As I get older, it can be so easy to forget the simple bliss that comes from experiencing the world through a childlike lens - full of gentle curiosity and wide open wonder.

When I reflect back on my childhood, I remember tea parties under lemon trees and darting through sprinklers in bursts of giggles and excitement. I remember endless summer days spent foraging for insects amongst tropical ferns. And I remember building fortresses made of sheets and pillows that became temporary hiding spots. 

Within these memories, I am reminded of this younger part of me that I have left behind. Somewhere along the way, I have learned to turn down the volume. And over time, her voice, her desires and her dreams have gradually faded away. 

And in the last few months, after a session with my kinesiologist, I felt pulled towards reconnecting with her, my inner child, again. Connecting with our inner child can be such a healing, mindful and cathartic experience, awakening a sense of playfulness within.

Elizabeth Gilbert encourages us to “be childlike in our pursuit of life”. In doing so we will refuse to let our to-do lists, our jobs, our bitterness or cynicism shut down the joy of our experience in the moment. However, she does make a good point in that bringing out our childlike selves does not mean that we should be childish, acting without maturity.
