Embracing the Duality of Life: Facing Reality with Courage and Resilience

Life is composed of diverse experiences, some bringing happiness and positivity, while others present difficulties and hardships. As we navigate through this complex journey, it is essential to acknowledge and embrace both the light and shadow sides of our existence.

Forest Bathing: Reconnecting with Nature for Personal Growth and Well-being

In today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world, it’s easy to feel disconnected from nature and overwhelmed by the stresses of daily life. However, there’s a simple and powerful practice that can help us reconnect with the natural world and promote personal growth and well-being: forest bathing. Forest bathing, also known as “shinrin-yoku,” is a Japanese practice that involves immersing oneself in the atmosphere of the forest. It’s not about hiking or exercising, but rather about slowing down, being present, and engaging all of our senses to experience the forest environment fully. The benefits of forest bathing are numerous. Studies have shown that

Harmonising Head and Heart: The Key to Authentic Living

Listen to this post: I’ve been on a journey to find a new balance between mind and heart. In the past, I’ve been accused of spending too much time in my head, often disappearing into my thoughts for days at a time. Though physically present, my mind would be elsewhere. My best friend once shared with me that he had learned to recognise when I’m “gone.” Instead of trying to bring me back, he patiently waits for my return, having faith that I will eventually find my way back. When I do “return,” I embrace my heart fully, allowing my

6 reasons why adding self-inquiry to your journaling practice can deepen your self-awareness

Why journal? Journaling is a powerful tool for self-expression, reflection, and personal growth. It provides a safe and private space to explore our innermost thoughts, feelings, and experiences without fear of judgement or criticism. By putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), we engage in a process of self-discovery and meaning-making that can be deeply transformative. When we journal, we give ourselves permission to be honest and authentic. We can express our joys, sorrows, fears, and dreams without filters or constraints. This act of self-expression can be incredibly cathartic, helping us to release pent-up emotions and gain a sense

Profile: Lilith as Mythological Figure and Archetypal Symbol

As I’m beginning to do more active imagination and dream work, I thought it might be a good idea to start profiling the various entities and beings I meet on my inner journeys. As I shared with you yesterday, Lilith appeared in my dreams. And this morning, utilising Jung’s active imagination technique, I met and had a conversation with Lilith. I’ll probably share that encounter in a separate post. Mythological Origins Lilith’s complex and enigmatic nature has captivated the imaginations of people across cultures and throughout history. Her origins can be traced back to ancient Mesopotamian mythology, where she first

Journaling Reimagined: How ChatGPT Can Transform Your Self-Reflection Journey

I’m excited to share with you how I’ve been using ChatGPT as part of my personal growth practice. In the podcast version, I go into more detail and share the actual results using one of ChatGPT’s brilliant new features: the “read aloud” function. I made the video as a companion to the podcast to show you the visuals related to what I discuss. It’s worth checking out both, but if you’re pressed for time, I recommend starting with the podcast and watching the video later. Journaling has always been an awesome tool for self-discovery and reflection. And now, with AI

Embracing the Dance Between Survival and Spirituality

In the whirlwind of modern life, it’s easy to feel torn between our primal instincts and our higher aspirations. As we navigate the challenges of an increasingly complex world, we may find ourselves grappling with raw emotions and perplexing behaviours that seem at odds with our spiritual goals. It’s a tension that many of us feel acutely, especially in times of heightened stress and uncertainty. On the one hand, our survival instincts are deeply ingrained, shaped by millions of years of evolution. These instincts are what have allowed us to survive and thrive as a species, driving us to seek
