heart consciousness changed my life

Heart consciousness has changed my life

My relationships,
My work,
My direction,
But most of all my belief in myself.

Because of my heart and this self belief, I am now passionate about helping creatives and entrepreneurs get clear and confident so that they share their gifts with the world.

This is something that makes my heart soar, my soul sing, my ideas flow – in short this is my zone of genius.
What was my journey to finding my genius and getting crystal clear? Well, it has been a process.
It all started a few years ago. I began a morning ritual of connecting with a tree. In fact, those of you who have been with me for a while will remember an opt-in gift I sent you -“self-love daily ritual”. Well, I don’t know if you did it, but I did. Every day.

Part of the ritual, the most important part, was where I sensed myself as the energy that I was in the moment. The effect this had was that I got beyond my EGO, my identity, my actions, my looks, my physical body – all of it, and I got to know myself as the energy that I was emanating in the present moment. Pretty huge really. I started realising that this was the part of me that mattered and that was always okay.

At first, I saw this energy presence as being located my third eye – my wisdom centre. But over time, with practice the presence led me to my heart.

It wasn’t directly to my heart. It was via the tricky convoluted road of Pleasure. You see, knowing myself as energy in the moment – showed me how blocked and resistant I was to allowing life to feel good, which in turn led to me exploring my relationship with pleasure.

Pleasure led me to my heart because it is a feeling experience. We need to be connected in with our heart in order to sense, to know, and to process good feeling. After a while, I got really comfortable with pleasure and inviting it into my life.

I thought I had it all sorted until my big trip away last year blew my heart wide open (3 months of blissful voyaging with my beloved famille – read about it here). Before the trip, pleasure and heart consciousness were still kind of theoretical concepts for me, mostly accessed in moments of bliss and stillness. And then the trip.

It exploded me into heart centred being.

I was primed and ready to let all the goodness in, but the experience of letting it in, surrounded by the mountains, the scenery, the food, the chocolate, the time and space, my family – just expanded my way of being.

The result was that instead of being ruled from the head, my heart took the reins.

I now experience the sense of myself as energy in the moment from the centre of myself, in my heart. I feel deeply connected to the moment, the oneness, my soul and life in general and I get the beautiful, good feeling benefits of heart coherence too (much more on this in future posts)
I am not suggesting;

1.That I am always in my heart, my EGO still has her moments, but I feel my heart has become my default consciousness and is so much easier to get back to.


2. That I am any different with any special powers, or that you need a 3 month holiday in France to get there, this is available to us all, and I now know how to help you take the short cut rather than my long, convoluted path.

Now that I abide here, there is no going back.

My relationships, my home, my sense of abundance and time and space, my work are running on different priorities.

I realise now, that there was so much I was doing before that was killing me slowly, that felt wrong, that was out of alignment, that was not my vision, not my passion. So why was I doing it?
Because I was stuck in my head.

The head – doesn’t give a crap how it feels.


What I discovered in the realm of the heart – changes everything. Because in my heart, I know my own worth. I get beyond the fear and the doubt and start functioning optimally. It is in the heart that I can find my capacity to live a courageous creative life. It is in the heart that I can acknowledge my own genius and trust the value of my gifts in the world.
Something that I will never find in my head.

I feel so clear and confident in who I am when I come from my heart.

So now I find myself revved up – on a mission.

I want to see a world where we are not so afraid to express our nature that we are all cookie cutter versions of each other. I am not inspired by big brands or big trends monopolising the world or bland messages that have hesitant personalities.

I love to see small people with big visions doing brave stuff – whether it be wearing a feather in your sweater, having an exhibition of your work, writing a a book or an article, offering a workshop, or creating an online home. In short doing things with your flair, in your way.

The world is a better place with you expressing your ideas and creations and I am your biggest cheerleader.

I am committed to my work whether it be seeing clients, teaching, speaking or running online courses.
I am super passionate about guiding and helping you to bring your genius out of the cave it is hiding in and into the world.

“Do you have the courage? Do you have the courage to bring forth this work? The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say yes.”

So much love

    Hi! I just came across this post because I am on a journey. My journey sounds very similar to yours—even down to making a tree friend! One I have had for nearly three years now…

    My blog, Color Your Eyes is a creative project I have been working on for several years now. I have a sense about it, but at the same time have no idea where it is going! All I know is that I’m a believer of love and the unseen and I am realizing how much I have to trust myself and bring my awareness to my heart in order to understand what it is that can only be felt. I feel so passionate about bringing a voice to this unseen space of creation. As well as shining light and guiding others to their own connection with this unseen space.

    I’m just so curious about where you are at right now in your journey and what you are doing to help others. I too feel a call to serve.

    Anyways, thank you!

      Hi Clarissa,
      Thank you so much for reaching out. This is such a beautiful message to receive. I am so glad that you are on a creative path and that it inspires and pulls you onwards AND that it has brought you to your heart.

      I think that the journey of the heart is never clear. It is about feeling our way and knowing only the next step. I appreciate you asking where I am now in my journey of the heart as it has given me the opportunity to reflect on where I was 3 years ago and where I am now.
      And now I am in a very satisfied and content place. I am constantly checking in with my alignment and tweaking, questioning and drawing boundaries in the areas that need to change. My heart feels light and bouyant, my marriage and family as happy as ever and my career excites me. Obviously there are challenges and disappointments along the way, but with my heart in the lead, I remember to feel it and comfort myself and not to create a huge big story of woe around it.

      I wish you all the very best in your journey and would love to hear from you again
