50 THINGS ABOUT ME (part 2)

Almost a year to the day after I shared part one of my ‘5o things about me’ post, I return with the remaining facts, in all their randomness… though some are in direct response to questions I have been asked via Instagram. Again, I was initially tagged to participate in this blogging “challenge” by Cassie […]

I QUIT SUGAR 8-WEEK PROGRAM (weeks 7 to 8 in review)

And so, the IQS 8-week program has officially come to an end. 😥 *blub blub* It hasn’t stopped me from whipping up Easy Gado Gado for dinner tonight, nor treating myself to a Zucchini Brownie for afternoon tea. Yes, it seems that 48 hours post-program, I have stuck with sugar-free, despite being technically “off the hook” now. And […]

DREAM & DO (it’s that simple!)

As mentioned in a previous post, I’ve recently found myself pondering the manifestation of dreams. Last weekend I decided I wanted to break down the formula for the “recipe for happiness and success” in the simplest of ways, to create a kind of mantra for myself… some words to live by, if you will. I then created […]

THE COURAGE TO SAY YES (or no)

Why are some of the simplest words the hardest to vocalise? Today I have been pondering the power of yes and no, making a pledge to myself that I will make use of them, as appropriate and as my heart & instincts lead me. I have recently been doing some intense “heart searching”, asking for signs […]

SPRING CLEANING FROM WITHIN: RAW FOOD, JUICING & MEDITATION (AKA did I pick the craziest week ever to detox?!)

Yes, we’ve recently celebrated Easter and, amid the many significances of this special time of year, it’s a fabulous time for the bakers among us, right? So why, oh WHY did I pick Easter week to reevaluate my eating habits and try raw food for the first time? Could it be the subtle influence of Deepak’s soothing voice as […]

OPRAH & DEEPAK 21-DAY MEDITATION CHALLENGE (Perfect Health- my experiences, part 2)

So, the Chopra Center’s latest 21-day meditation challenge, Perfect Health, has come to an end and the free meditation sessions can no longer be found online… well, all except for the bonus 22nd meditation, Global Perfect Health, which I share with you here as part of the “Meditate it Forward” movement. I hope you enjoy it (if you haven’t already). Simply […]

OPRAH & DEEPAK 21-DAY MEDITATION CHALLENGE (Perfect Health- my experiences)

Hot on the heels of his last amazing 21-day Creating Abundance meditation challenge, Deepak Chopra has partnered with Oprah to bring us a new challenge, this one being focused on health (great timing for all of us who envisaged getting 2013 off to a healthy start but have yet to reach our full potential ;)). Yes, […]

THE CHOPRA CENTER 21-DAY MEDITATION CHALLENGE (Creating Abundance- my experiences, part 3)

Monday was to mark the official completion of the Chopra Center 21-Day Meditation Challenge™, Creating Abundance, but then Deepak threw in a cheeky extra bonus session (thank you!), so that brought me up to 22 days of meditation and reflection using this wonderful, free forum. I am a little sad that it has come to an end and I […]
