Releasing Limitations through Journalling

Can it really be that simple? Can you really write, and in that act of writing, let go of what is holding you back? Yes. The beauty of this exercise is that often we don’t KNOW what is holding us back – all we know is we’re not getting there… By writing about what comes […]

Writing Ourselves into Awareness

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” ― C.G.

Today we’re going to explore some of the treasure that is locked […]

Telling yourself a better story

Writing your Dream Vacation into Existence

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor.

Manifesting Your Best Self – A Journal Adventure

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
