Whether it’s the intricate plumage of a beautiful bird. The cathedral like canopy of trees in a forest. Or the stunning sight of a spectacular sunset. There really is something to be wondered at in all of Nature. And when we pause for a moment in awe and wonder, rising above our everyday..
You might have noticed that this week is Mental Health Awareness Week. The theme this year is Nature, reminding us of the unique power and capacity that Nature has to benefit our health both physically and mentally. And whilst we inherently know this to be true, there’s also increasing scientific evidence now that..
Nature’s rhythm continues to flow through changing seasons and cycles of growth. And in our own lives too, change continues and moves through natural cycles. Some elements of our life or work might be in the winter phase, typically a time for completion, reflection and evaluation. Other aspects might be in the Spring phase such..
It can be all too tempting to hold back or stay hidden in the shadows when we believe we’re too small or insignificant to make a difference. And at just 5ft 1/2in tall I can relate to this 😉 But we also know it isn’t really true. It’s just one of the many..

When we go into nature and take a look around we can notice the abundance of wildlife or plant life or perhaps the rich variety of sights and sounds. And in it’s natural state Nature is a finely balanced, self sustaining ecosystem. We too are part of..
Today’s gift is Power. By power, I don’t mean force. I mean harnessing your natural power and creating results with less effort, more ease. Too often, we can fall into the trap of believing that being powerful means being forceful. And that to get something done we need to push, force or manipulate. Yet when..
Today’s gift is Freedom We all have a tendency to adapt and compromise ourselves. Whether that’s to seek approval, fit in or feel safe. Or be seen as credible and successful at work. Or perhaps appear powerful and influential as a leader. But the more we adapt the further we drift from who we truly..
Today’s gift is Stillness We live in a noisy world…not just the outer world but our own inner world too. Filled with constant thinking and questioning, concerns and opinions, perceptions and assumptions. It can be difficult discerning and distilling what’s true and hard to know what to choose, say or do. So what can we..
