8 Ways To Add Magic To The New Year

If you are feeling behind or even guilty of not yet setting any New Year’s Resolutions, then don’t be! I’ve never been a fan of those resolutions, because somehow they feel a bit ‘pressured’, set you up for failure and they are based on a mindset of ‘lack’. Instead, why not welcome and celebrate the new year with a mindset of ‘plenty’ – start with a list of what you have done right so far, knowing that all is as it should be right now, that you are already perfect. Once you’ve done that, below are some suggestions to add more magic and sparkle to enhance the energetic shift heralding the Year of the Fire Rooster. Choose what best resonates with you and what makes your heart flutter. The best news is, the lunar Chinese New Year does not arrive

The Gifts of 2016

As 2016 is rushing towards the end, I have been consciously creating some much-needed space – to rest, to reflect, to anchor so I can start the new year with mindfulness, honesty and gratitude. As my mind cast back over the last 365 days, I want to honour the gifts that 2016 has given me to mark the passing of the old year. 1. I’ve learned to embrace the ‘UNKNOWN’ wholeheartedly. Because when nothing is certain, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. 2. My fears are the gatekeepers of my GREATEST GIFTS. It leads to my ‘personal treasure’, my deepest desires. 3. For all those things that didn’t happen when I wanted and expected it to, THANK YOU! 4. Little did I know, it was the moment I began to loosen my grip, I started to discover my MAGICAL POWER.  So THANK YOU 2016. You have exceeded my expectations in

To My Shadow Self

Dear Shadow Self For years, I have been avoiding you, pretending so hard not to see you, keeping you under wraps, disowning you. As if as soon as I acknowledge you, I will be ashamed, persecuted and put away forever by my circle of imaginary judges. But no matter how hard I try, I know you are there. Until one day, I collapse in exhaustion and no longer really care. I decided if I can’t rid of you, I might as well have a good look at you. The moment I look into your eyes, I know that you are my friend… for as long as I have lived. As soon as I confronted you and faced you front-on, I saw shadows – but I also saw light. Waves of calmness and relief washed over me. I was no longer

Change Your Energy, Change Your Destiny

“If you don’t make the time to work on creating the life you want, you are eventually going to be forced to spend a lot of time dealing with a life you don’t want.” According to Chinese metaphysics, our Destiny is determined based on 3 types of luck. They are Heaven Luck, Earth Luck and Man Luck. They will accompany us throughout our lifetime and have almost equal bearing on our destiny. I have talked a lot about how to enhance our Heaven Luck through the understanding of the Four Pillars of Destiny and how to use Feng Shui practice to optimise our Earth Luck. However, it is when we whole-heartedly invest in our Man Luck that we really shake things up and make profound changes to our destiny. Man Luck is all about our thoughts and belief systems, our virtues, moral codes, talents

Creating a Sacred Space

Creating a sacred space is a simple yet powerful practice to evoke self-love, to consciously create the time and space to be with yourself. This is where we experience the healing power of silence. The biggest challenge for most of us today is not to keep busy, but to slow down. This month, I invite you to create a sacred space just for YOU, no matter how small or simple it is… It can be your favourite chair in your living room, a bunch of fresh flowers or your deck of oracle cards. Whatever it might be, they should evoke LOVE. So as soon as you step into this space, your body relaxes, your heart feels open and warm, and every cell of your being feels loved. You are coming home. You are safe, nurtured and cherished in this space. In Feng Shui, it is not

Why “LET IT BE” is the quickest way to get what you want

We often want it so badly that we ruin it before it begins. If this sounds familiar, read on… Regardless if it is that project dear to your heart or the man of your dreams…More often than not, we are Overthinking. Overanalysing. Fantasizing. Expecting. Worrying. Doubting. We think we are trying so damn hard to get there, yet, it is exactly those limiting beliefs that are stopping us from getting what we want and where we want to be. We need to take a deep breath, take a step back, surrendering and  just LET. IT. BE. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you shouldn’t take action or listen to your intentions or your heart’s desires. Do that within your power and more, then… walk away.  Let it evolve, naturally. Give it space to grow in its own pace. Leave room

My Word for 2016

This year, instead of setting my new year’s resolutions, I have let intuition guide me to let things flow freely… Instead of setting my intentions, I have let go of what no longer serves me… This process has felt so free, so liberating and I feel each day, my feet are making solid prints on the path of intuitive living. The intuition has led me to choose my word for 2016 and it is “EXPRESSION”. Graphic: Courtesy of Darling Tree I know lots of you have probably done this in the past, but this is the first time I have consciously done this. To be precise, instead of me choosing the word, the word came to me with such a full strength, it almost knocked me over. I’m still feeling it, digesting what it means and how I can truly
