Be the Change…..

The Lindt Chocolate Cafe in Sydney's Martin Place used to be a place where people went for a little extra indulgence and delight.  Among the many cafes and coffee shops in the area, it exuded charm and was an extra special place to meet for a treat, whether it be a great coffee, a deluxe hot chocolate or one of the many goodies Lindt is renowned for.  I'd often meet my daughter and/or friends there after I'd finished seeing clients in my Hypnotherapy/Coaching practice just around the corner in Macquarie Street.  I used the Westpac bank literally doors up from it on the other side of the...

Don’t Shoot the Messenger

Brain blurts and messages For the past couple of weeks, I've been writing 'morning pages', which involves three pages of longhand writing every morning, to dump all of the stuff going around in your brain onto paper to make way for more creativity.  It's the brainchild of Julia Cameron, whose book, "The Artist's Way", I bought as an extra special treat for myself.  I've been going along dutifully writing every day without it having much of an effect on me externally, sometimes having to force myself because I've had nothing to say and at other times a little disappointed that the three pages...

Strong Boundaries – Essential for Business

How strong are your boundaries?  I thought mine were pretty strong, until someone threw a verbal tantrum on social media recently because they didn't get their own way.  It made me realise that running my heart-centred business my way  involves not only stepping into who I need to be, but also stepping up the measures I take to maintain strong boundaries.  My experience went like this:   After posting a quote from one of my wonderful Resonate contributors in a social media group, I received a friend request from a fellow member, who immediately asked me to promote his product to my...
