It’s a wrap! Merry Christmas and Thank You :)

Christmas snowman

Well folks, that’s a wrap as they say in the tv/film world! We’re pretty much at the end of 2013 and it’s Christmas Eve too so I hope you also have all your presents wrapped by now and you can start to enjoy your Christmas-time. What have you got planned? Me, I’m going to spend a couple of days with my Sister and her family and call in on my Dad en-route. I love Christmas and the time it gives us to re-calibrate, to slow down (after the rushing around of food shopping and present delivering etc!), to give thanks […] Read more »

What we can learn about love from the snow

It’s been a strange old first quarter of the year here in the UK. We’ve just had yet another downpour of snow which has lasted several days – that’s very unusual for us – especially in the Midlands where I am based. I’m a big fan of the power of metaphor to help us understand, process and digest what’s going on in our lives and found my mind coming up with some insights from the snow recently. This is a technique I often use with clients to help them too 🙂 So, I thought I’d share the meanderings of my […] Read more »

Merry Christmas – and my 8th Top Tip

Just a very brief message to share my 8th Tip for having a sizzling singles Christmas 🙂 Tip 8 My final tip is about faith, hope, belief and trust. When I think about the main mindset shift that helped me and that I now recommend to clients (alongside helpings of self awareness and doing your deep inner work), this is it. Never give up hope and belief that there is someone out there for you. Never give up believing that you can have the ideal relationship. Trust that when you work on yourself and get clear on what you want […] Read more »

Looking for Love but making excuses?‏

I’ve been pondering lately on all the excuses we make and all the reasons why we can’t meet our soulmate/life partner. Do any of these sound familiar? I’m too fat/heavy/overweight I’m too old No one would be interested in me! I haven’t got time right now I’m not sure I want to be hurt again All the ‘good’ ones are taken/there’s no good one’s left What’s the point, they’ll only leave me again like last time I’m not ready yet I don’t go out – where will I meet someone? Can you hear yourself saying any of these and/or other […] Read more »

Dawn, Are you still hung up on your ex?‏

Are you? Or have you been hung up on your ex? It’s not helpful is it? I thought I’d write about this today as I transition my relationship into a friendship.  I’ve shared previously what has lead to this change and it is now a lot, lot easier, I’m pleased to say! But, I’m very aware that whilst I still have my ex in my life in the form of  a good friend, ultimately it’s going to block me making space for someone new to enter.  I’m not quite ready for that yet so at the moment this situation is […] Read more »

Soulmates suck…. or do they?‏

Many thanks to everyone that got in touch after my last post – it really was appreciated. All is going well with my re-adjustment back to single life – I’ve been re-applying what I teach – you know the saying ‘practice what you preach’? well now I get another go at it! I’m also very busy which helps, at least for now, until I’m ready to start looking for someone new again – I’m sure there will be someone waiting in the wings as soon as I am 🙂 So, how are you all doing? Before I get into the […] Read more »

What to do when the Universe sends you Lemons‏

Firstly apologies for the gap in emails for the last few weeks! You might guess from the title of this email that it’s due to dealing with some ‘lemons’ coming my way in my life. It’s quite a big fat lemon really! Three weeks ago following four weeks of uncertainty my soulmate and I decided to end our relationship and become ‘just friends’. It’s quite a complicated situation, hence my facebook status currently saying ‘it’s complicated!’. My soulmate (and we definitely are soulmates, we’re just not destined to have a lifetime relationship together) is a priest and our soulmate journey […] Read more »

Shades of Grey isn’t just about the ‘you know what’!

Have you been caught up in the ’50 Shades of Grey’ wave that’s been sweeping the UK (probably the World!?).   In the end I gave in to all the comments I was seeing from friends on Facebook etc and decided I  wanted to know what all the fuss was about for myself! And it certainly got me thinking… not about the ‘you know what!’ (if I use the ‘s word’ this will end up in your spam folder) though it has been interesting to see how the characters have developed, but more about our own ‘shades’. We all have […] Read more »
