While depression tells many lies, it might also be revealing some truths to you. If you’ve ever been depressed, you probably know that it can come back, even after years or months of recovery. It may creep up on you, or it may hit you when you least expect it.

Anything Is Possible
Athel Oosterbroek

Adopt the attitude of The Child; its wide-eyed sense of wonderment allows even what seems magical appear normal. It's all about perspective. Love your life, be in the flow of your joy, forgive old paradigms and hurts with the Lightness of Being Grand Masters and Children do so lightly and all is well. The yang of that is the terrified child with its grumpy pants and no can do stance, clinging to anything approximately mommy.

Are You Addicted To Killing Your Future?
Sarah-Jane farrell

4 steps to move from what if? to I am doing this easily. A diamond is formed under intense pressure and heat to transmute in to a clear, sparkling gem of high value. It reminds me that just like a diamond those moments of intense pressure and heat that express in human beingness as force, anger and physical challenges are part of our evolution to get clear on our unique diamond genius zone so we can do the work and shine in the world for others to choose to live in their true nature! I want to share some of the ways we moved together in to more space and adventure of the unknown and how to embrace it rather than shut down your DESIRE for more of what you want. When you follow your intuitive knowing and have patience and kindness with yourself, everything can change so that you get to live engaged, present and on fire.

Are You Making The Possible Impossible?
Sarah-Jane Farrell

If there was ONE thing, one LEGACY you could teach - what would it be?
If you could tell the World ONE thing, what would it be?

Every single one of us has something amazing inside of us that needs to be shared with the world. The only thing holding is back whether we "think we can or can't."

Over the last few months, I've been developing the ability to rest in the challenge, to bump up against the barrier and be willing to stay there raw, rough and vulnerable - to experience and observe the discomfort, the "not knowing".

Becoming A Woman Of Substance
Heather-Anne Bender

Every woman needs to know her worth and to act in such a way that it is apparent to everybody else. If you carry yourself in a certain way, then people will treat you accordingly. Learn to act in ways that raise your value instead of diminishing it. Here are some tips to help you:

Difference Between Counselling And Life Coaching
Lets Live Life Coaching

People often think that life coaching and counselling are the same thing. There is a common misconception that in both, life coaching and counselling, the patient or help-seeker sits on a chair and talks about his/her problems to the life coach or therapist respectively. However, although there are one-on-one sessions with life coaches too, a life coach focuses more on overcoming problems and negativity and getting the client out of the rut towards a more positive life.

Difference Between Psychology And Life Coaching
Lets Live Life Coaching

People often get confused between Psychology or therapy and life coaching. These two fields are vastly different. Clinical psychology is the diagnosis and treatment of mental and emotional disorders, whereas life coaching helps mentally healthy people to improve their lifestyles. Life coaching has nothing to do with treating severe psychological problems

How To Choose The Right Retreat For You
Bennie Naude

The Rat Race is a term used to describe a frustrating and often overwhelming lifestyle, seemingly impossible to break out of.

How To Get Step In To Your Diamond Genius Zone
Sarah-jane Farrell

4 physical ways to support your gall bladder and liver so that you have the courage and confidence to start your year off in your brilliance and be able to consistently meet your targets. Many of you know I love working with the medicine wheel and the 5 elements in chinese medicine. I always stock up on gall bladder tonics in January for my clients, to keep the gall bladder strong. When the GB is weak you just cannot maintain targets you have set for the year. You will find yourself fence sitting, unable to take steps forward and get moving towards what you desire and require.A STRONG Gall bladder and Liver give you the strength and courage to plan and decide what direction matched where you aim to go!! The yin/yang aspect of liver/gall bladder - both governed by the wood element. This is the year of the Wood sheep so if we are to gather the energy, the vital life force with adaptability and flexibility the liver/ gall bladder communications need to be at their optimum to make this easier for you.

How To Maintain An Ideal Body Weight
Linda Clarke

Despite the millions of rands spent annually on weight loss clubs, diet books, diet pills, liquid diets and fancy spas still more and more people are struggling to control their weight.

How Will The Sun Moving Through The "twins" Affect You?
Michelle McClunan

It also relates to our ability to listen attentively and really hear what is being said. How will the twins of the zodiac affect YOU this month? 

I Am So Embarrassed
Sarah-Jane Farrell

Consciously choose to be clear, what you are really choosing is love over fear. Compassion over shame. Dedication over procrastination. Progress over stuck-ness. It really is very simple. You decide, right here in this moment, that you are clear. You are clear, and you are not confused. Whether or not you believe this is a matter of choice. Either way, you will get to where you are going. You just need to decide whether you are clear...or not.

Red Pill Or Bue Pill?
Sarah-jane Farrell

In our instant gratification culture, there is an urban myth circling our news-feeds, e-mails and self-help articles. This myth takes form through the web usually called “5 life hacks to happiness’ or ‘Quick fix for depression” or “7 ways to ……”.

I would LOVE to tell you that there is a tablet you could take which solve all your problems, eliminate issues, dissolve the tough feelings, thoughts and emotions;
OR that in one easy step you could wash away the pain;
OR  a magic potion which will make the chaos creators in your life disappear…

The Warrior Awakening
Jonti Searll

Many of the people who come to see us, do so from the understanding that our sexual energy is a source of extreme power; a power that can be used for healing and growth in every aspect of our lives.This goes beyond purely sexual issues. Many of the people I’m working with at the moment are using this energy to clear the blockages and patterns of the past in order to make different life choices and to create lives of greater meaning, joy and fulfilment. Part of this journey for men and women is awakening the warrior within. Many of us have lost our connection to this energy, to what it means to live as a warrior, and how to manifest the power of this in our lives.

Touch This Body
Jonti Searll

Touch as an act of prayer. Sacred sensual touch as act of receiving rather than giving.

Why You Should Take Responsibility For Your Own Well-being And Happiness.

Wish Upon A Star
Margi McAlpine

Faith and trust are so important. You need to have faith and trust firstly in yourself and then also in the Beings of Light and the Universe who are there supporting and guiding you and bringing about what your heart desires.

You Are What You Seek
Colleen-Joy Page

Seeing with our true eyes frees us of the tyranny of believing that we are creatures crawling around on the face of a small blue planet, grasping for air and survival. May you have nothing left to stand in the way of the full knowledge of what you truly are.

You Will Never Be Original
Sarah-Jane Farrell

What if "Originality" is a paradox. If we have any hope of being original, we must first give up any hope of being original. I believe ( my interesting point of view) is that this is one of those things that we accept at face value, but insist on running round like crazed professors all the same scrambling to figure out what makes us unequivocally different from everyone else. We think we'll find our 'originality' in our brands - as if there is some kind of magic formula that exists out there somewhere, that will make us appear revolutionary even if really, we know we're not. This is fuel for the 'I'm not expert enough' curse. We know, deep down, that our ideas aren't really all that original. We know that what we have to say has been said before. We know that there are already other people out there sharing OUR message  and doing it ten times better, with ten times a bigger audience. It feels like a pretty hopeless situation.
