HOW IS YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW? This very minute. Are you living the life you always hoped you would? Give that some thought. What did you dream you'd do as an adult, while you were growing up? Did you even know? - When you wake up in the morning, do you feel glad to be there, in that bed, in that building? - Are you lying beside the love of your life, in a mutually-fulfilling relationship? - Do you spring out of bed with lots of energy and vitality? - Do you have a spiritual connection and a great social network? - Do you have a career that fills you? - Does your bank balance make you feel abundant? - Do you regularly feel joy and gratitude? If the answer to all of these is Yes - then well done! That is awesome. Keep
When my son, Sam, was just older than a toddler, we would go to the play park and when he climbed onto the climbing frame, it was no longer a climbing frame, oh no, it was an aeorplane and we needed to help the pilot sort out something he needed fixing. This was an epic adventure that he could absolutely spend ages working through. Further around the park, the area underneath the slide had a little table and chairs built in; this was our kitchen and Sam made elaborate meals for us both, that he served up with a flourish. It didn’t matter that it was all invisible, that there was not really a fridge in the hedges and that there was nothing for our fingers to grasp hold of: to him, it was very real, very tasty and very exciting. And then, at

When the taxi pulled up at Sydney harbour, I looked up at the ship from the ground. It was enormous, and this was to be our home for the next 10 days. We hadn’t been on a proper holiday since moving to Australia in 2016, so I was very much looking forward to having a proper break, but I’d never been on a cruise before so was slightly worried. What if I didn't like it and wanted to get off? What if I get sea sick? Where will I run? As I walked through the terminal building, these questions were running through my mind as I moved into a new context. The ship had 10 Decks and we entered on Deck 3, walking through a very gaudy door that would have felt very at home in the Palace of Versailles. We took the stairs to floor
Once upon a time, I was just like everyone else. I would get a problem, go to the doctor, pick up a prescription and then take the course of treatment prescribed. That is what we all did and I had no reason as a young child to question this or even consider that there might be another way. That all changed when I was 19. Up until that point, I'd had chronic chest problems and pretty dreadful eczema on my face and legs. Every so often I would head to the GP and get some steroid cream, apply it and the red, scaly blotches would go away. It was a miracle. However, whilst at the university on the South Coast of England, a friend suggested that perhaps I had an allergy to dairy. It was an interesting idea so I gave it a go and cut out the
Happy, happy new year! It’s the dawn of a new day, a new month and whole new year. I love a new year as it gives us the opportunity to review, reflect and start again. Everything that happened yesterday is now in the past and there’s nothing you can do to change the events of the past. But you can influence and change the events of the future, guided by the lessons from the past. For me, 2018 was a roller coaster ride and I’m certainly emerging with more resilience than when I started the year. I’m proud of what we’ve done as a team, in collaboration with some amazing partners, to unleash the RAW or Real Energy that exists inside all us: - Launching a new website - thanks COM Marketing - Launched a white paper - thanks Kamwell -
At this time of year, many people use the opportunity to set #NewYearsResolutions. The trouble is that the research shows that most of us aren’t very successful at sticking to those resolutions. Only 8% of people make it work. So, what to do?
