How you think about yourself…

My experience in Africa…

My experience in Africa…

What do you welcome? I was so moved by my recent trip to Kenya. (Here's a great video of me in a village in Kilifi)  Everyone I spoke to smiled, was friendly and open, from the hotel to the villages - every interaction was warm and welcoming. When I caught a cab to...

What desire is inside of you that wants to be expressed?

That feeling when you have just lived a future memory on your vision board. This picture has been on my vision board since 2018. I not only wanted to sponsor villages, I wanted to go and visit them. I saw Celia Kersey on stage at Bob Proctor event and I was...

Do you have rich thoughts?

Do you have rich thoughts?

Do you have “rich” thoughts? A rich consciousness precedes “riches” in the material world. Read that again. Wealth comes from within. It is a state of being. You will have your own definition for “rich”. Whether this be an abundance of time, abundance of health,...

Are you open to receiving?

What do you think about money?

What do you think about money?

Ever feel like you don’t belong?

Ever feel like you don’t belong?

In my life I often felt like this. It was a judgement I made of myself. That sense of belonging comes from you being connected with you. (Regardless of your results and where you are. Those things are just an indication of your previous thinking, feelings and...

What makes you smile?

What makes you smile?

What makes you smile? This is the easiest way for me to tap into gratitude. I have developed the habit of waking up with a smile on my face and reflecting on all the blessings I have in my life. Can you tap into the feeling of gratitude? This is where the magic is....

Is fear standing in your way?

Is fear standing in your way?

Most fear is learned at a young age, influenced by our environment and culture. How you show up each day in your work, your personal life is impacted by these fears, i.e. Avoiding difficult /uncomfortable conversations Fear of not being good enough Fear of not being...

How do you manage the highs and lows?

There are highs and lows and everything in between. How do you show up in these times? What are your thoughts? Your feelings? Did you get stuck in the lows for days on end, or is this something that you can move through, feel the feelings and move on to the next...

It’s all in the timing

It’s all in the timing

Have you ever thought when is the right time to start something new or to let go of something? Think about nature. For a tree there is a moment in autumn to winter – where the tree lets go of its leaves.  If it is too early or too late it could affect the energy for...

Are you living your best life?

Are you living your best life?

Are you living your best life? I know that I am not. There are still things that I hold myself back from, that I limit, that I second guess, that I avoid, that is an internal battle. I thought in the beginning that being a mindset mentor meant I had to have it...

Are you looking for the quick fix?

Are you looking for the quick fix?

What are you being called to?

What are you being called to?

Happy Monday !!! How has your year started? This year like many others I hibernated. I pulled back from the world and went within, spent time in nature and with my family. I often get this feeling where I am called to stillness. In the past I didn’t listen to it. Now...

Are you open to receiving?

Are you open to receiving?

Can you be open to receiving all that has showed up for you this year? All the good, all the bad, all the stuff that has happened. More than likely not. (I certainly don't find this easy!!) If you can be open to receiving all of it with ownership, grace and...

Your mind is a magnet…

Your mind is a magnet…

Your mind is a magnet … Thought causes all. Your mind is like a magnet that draws to itself its own like and kind. When you think of yourself as a magnet, you are attracting to yourself whatever you are thinking. Your mental magnet is greatly reduced by your worries,...

Releasing Resistance

Releasing Resistance

Most people ask for what they want and then spend most of their mental energy focused on why it isn’t showing up. Think about water from a trickle, to a stream, river and ocean. It doesn't waste any time with an obstacle. It quietly works its way around any...

Forgive your younger self

Forgive your younger self

Are you comfortable?

Are you comfortable?

“The comfort zone is a great place, but nothing grows there.” The comfort zone may feel nice, cosy..easy… You feel comfortable but yet you aren’t where you want to be in life. Nothing grows from being comfortable. The only way to get to where you want to be - whether...

What are your fears?

What are your fears?

Humans are born with two fears, the fear of loud noises and the fear of falling. Fear is an adaptive behaviour that you have to help identify threats. It is an ability that has allowed us to survive predators and natural disasters. Most fear is learned at a young age,...

Stop ignoring your gut instinct!

Stop ignoring your gut instinct!

Flex your muscle - Your intuition muscle. Trust your intuition. That quiet voice in your head. Not the one that is constantly chattering, that’s your logic and it weighs up all your options, helps you procrastinate and generally talks you out of what you want, based...

Life is meant to be better

Life is meant to be better

Ever wanted something so badly…

Ever wanted something so badly…

Great question this week – “Rachael, How do I stop trying and overthinking something that I want so badly?" My response – Get yourself calm and relaxed. When you are tense and in a state of wanting you hold yourself away from what you want. You know that frustrated...

Do the illogical

Do the illogical

Do the illogical. You and I have been conditioned to work hard, to push through, to take lots of action. One of my biggest lessons was to do the exact opposite. Learn how to be still, quiet, to just think and be. This was my work last Monday. Walks on the beach and...

Be Kind

Be Kind

Be kind. Easier said than done, particularly when it is focused on yourself. What you may find interesting is that your health and wellbeing is underpinned by how you choose to treat yourself ( Arianne Huffington , 2014). If you are used to coming from a place of...

Who are you feeding?

I shared this with a group of athletes recently. An old Cherokee Indian chief was teaching his grandson about life. He said, "A fight is going on inside me," he told the young boy, "a fight between two wolves." The Dark one is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret,...

Happiness is a way of being

Happiness is a way of being

Such an interesting concept.  Think about it.  Not sure about you but so much of life conditions you to seek things outside of yourself to “get” happiness. What if it isn’t outside of you at all and that all that you need to do is choose to be happy. Think about that....

Be intentional

Be intentional

Have you noticed how easy it is to get swept up with all that happens in your day or week. The to do lists, the “busyness” of life. One of the habits over the past few years that I have implemented is creating my day in advance. I have learnt to focus on the 24 hours...

How do you want to feel?

You may never know your impact

You may never know your impact

Create your day in advance

Just let it flow

Just let it flow

Do you sometimes feel that personal development or "doing something for yourself" is sometimes more stress and pressure than pleasure? Do you sometimes think to yourself, "but I still have to do this or that?", "I need a morning routine." or "Only when I do XYZ can I...

The Power of a Smile

The Power of a Smile

Have you ever given a smile to someone and they look away, making it feel just a bit awkward and uncomfortable? I had the intention through Covid that when I passed someone on the beach, I would say good morning and give them a smile. It was certainly interesting to...

What is your vibe?

What is your vibe?

See what is already present

See what is already present

See what is already present. I am sure that you have heard that being grateful for what you have in life can change your feelings in an instant, but did you know that science also supports this? It shows that gratitude can increase important neurochemicals in the...

Can you hear it?

Can you hear it?

Can you hear that? That quiet voice speaking to you. Are you listening to it or are you ignoring it? You know, that voice that tells you not to do something or that voice that tells you to do something. You've heard it when it tells you to leave a job right? Leave a...

Have you given up already?

Have you given up already?

If you understand the science behind what you’re doing…

If you understand the science and the maths behind what you are doing 1+1 always equals 2. January is a great time of year to be setting your goals and getting clear – but the reality is you can do this any time of the year. I love this 4 step process from Esther and...

In with the new, out with the old?

In with the new, out with the old?

In with the new – or will you hang on to the old? How will this year be any different if your thinking remains stagnant? More of the same will lead to more of the same. You may have been watching and waiting for too long. Don’t let this email pass without you acting...

The Value of Friendship

The Value of Friendship

Where your focus goes, your energy flows!

Where is your focus? Everybody can have goals! Everybody can have vision boards! Everyone can write their goals down! BUT the people that achieve them, and do it with ease, flow and joy are the people who consume their minds with their goal...they are focused on what...

If you can…

If you can…

Being Vulnerable
