Feel like getting away from it all?

Who doesn’t from time to time to simply STOP and reflect? We do know in our hearts that ongoing GRATITUDE is often a wonderful catalyst to help prevent those ‘blahs’ or the extreme stress that propels us to want to get away from it all! But how do we get to this ‘attitude of gratitude’? During March we will be focusing on this concept – especially as 1st March is World Compliment Day!

In our heads we can see the logic of being grateful for what we have, even while we give thanks for what we want to manifest? But what about our hearts – our feelings and emotions? Do you ever get tired and fedup that your dreams seem to be taking so long to come to you? Do you wonder if something has hijacked them enroute? I used to! And if I really examined this, I could see my own doubts, fears and insecurities getting in the way and blocking what I believed would come to me. Can you resonate? I knew it had something to do with not feeling worthy enough but this challenge seemed so enormous to overcome, that to compensate, I’d double my efforts instead and try twice as hard! I reasoned that if I achieved more, it was bound to happen……

Been there, done that? In my own case, regrettably not so. I’d get a few wins but the inconsistency of slow, slow, fast, fast was almost like a bit of a manic dance that left me feeling busy, busy – but not achieving anything much, or only small wins. Am I speaking your language? So yes, I often felt like getting away from it all….with time to regroup.

Well I have good news and good news! In late April, we will be providing you with the chance to get away from it all at beautiful Tranquil Park, a gorgeous Retreat Centre with stunning views of the Glasshouse Mountains… The good news is that you can accept the invitation that will be forthcoming in this next week to have time to stop, reflect and take stock – because we will be focusing on how to achieve this balance? What makes us run around like the proverbial chooks trying to achieve, when if we took time to understand, we could draw opportunities and people to us instead with what I term magnetic feminine energy? How do we live our lives with the kind of balance that enables us to use our masculine energies to drive forward the goals on our vision board, but at the same time step back enough to draw towards us those things we need, rather than needing to pursue them ‘helter skelter’?

And the second piece of good news is that once a woman reconnects to that feminine and sensual woman within, her life can change in amazing ways! Because she will be reconnecting to that softer side of her nature, to her heart which in turn can help her to have the courage to look at ‘heart hurt’ from previous relationships, even abuse or neglect… This is why our Retreat is being called Unleash the Feminine Power Within.

We’re probably all familiar with the 5 Love Languages?  Do you know yours?  Do you love doing little things for others (esp as a mum)?  Or giving your loved ones little surprises?  One of the delights of life, is it not?

Do you live with a partner or friends who’s love language is giving gifts? What about acts of service?  Many men fall into this category!  But for them to feel like the gift or service has been accepted with grace – you have to accept or receive this!


Today is World Compliment Day!  So look out for those compliments, lovelies!  Is that laughter ‘I hear?! 😊  Yes – I really do understand because many women find the idea of others giving them compliments almost distasteful – but why?  Is it something to do with our fear of being consider ‘up ourselves’, or being a ‘tall poppy’?  Do we feel it’s feeding our ego?  That begs the question – did your parents praise you?  My mum did a great deal – for which I’m forever grateful but dad?  His highest form of praise was ‘there’s nothin’ wrong with that’!  However I can also remember being told not to be a ‘showoff’ if mum found me preening myself in the mirror, even as a child!

You see, many women feel ambivalent about being in the spotlight – we crave attention deep down, but when it’s given and we feel eyes upon us, we can get embarrassed or uncomfortable about that attention!  Yes, we are complex at times, my friends! But back to compliments – do you deflect this because you feel it’s not deserved?  Oh this top? OMG I just got it at the op shop darling!  Or do you find yourself madly trying to think of something you can say back to that person to compliment them in some way for what they’ve given you in exchange – and find yourself floundering?

Here’s a quick tip!  Next time someone says something nice to you about your work, your appearance etc – simply smile, put your hand on your heart and say ‘thanks – that’s a nice thing to say – or that makes me feel special’! That works a treat for me every time, but naturally you may have to put your own take on this – but basically it’s to simply thank someone for the ‘gift’ they’ve given so they feel it has been received…..

And this brings up a vitally IMPORTANT thing I learned around 40 years ago – it’s a kind of truism, but in actual fact is VERY REAL – YOU HAVE WHAT YOU ACCEPT!  A friend could be offering you something – from a compliment to a gift to a great offer – but it is NOT yours until you accept it!  You actually have to receive this into your hands, your heart, your life and make it yours, or it just stays with that person.

So what’s this got to do with the first day of the month?  As this is about World Compliment Day I thought it would be fun to focus on ACCEPTANCE and GRATITUDE for what we can truly accept into our lives! So is there something you feel you’d like to accept this month?  Something coming up for you that you hope will ‘land’?  Or are you simply deciding to stay open to what Life may offer you this month?  I find myself in both camps – I am thanking the Universe for a project coming successfully to completion before it actually happens/ and I want to remain open for other unexpected ‘delights’ coming my way this month!

And to encourage us all lovelies – remember, the nature of feminine energy is to be magnetic! Yes, we still have to plan and put things into action – but then we can step into our feminine, once the work is completed, and release it – let it go, so the universe can do its magic and start attracting this into our lives!
