23 Lessons From 2023 1

I always love to reflect at the end of a year. I look at my life through the lens of what lessons have I learnt and what experiences have I had rather than good vs bad or right vs wrong or success vs failure.

I started this year with a desire for deep spiritual growth and to level up in many ways. I had on my vision board a beautiful image with the words โ€˜Return to Authenticityโ€™. To strip back my fears, limiting beliefs, ego, attachments and anything holding me back from being my absolute best. To truly fall in love with my authentic self.

Well it worked and came about in a way I never could have predictedโ€ฆmy hair falling out which led me to have surgery to get my breast implants removed. There were times it was awful and I was scared, but I honestly couldnโ€™t be happier and am so grateful this happened because I achieved what I wanted and feel incredible within myself and in my body.

My year was consumed with my health, learning to trust and understand why this was happening and acceptance. Connecting my implants to my alopecia (hair loss) didn’t come from any doctor. My decision to remove them was based on signs, intuitive guidance and a knowing in my gut. Then post op I was processing my recovery, rest, healing and gaining strength back in my body for teaching again. In the middle of that was a trip to Malta, discovering my ancestral roots from my Opa and even more self discovery and identity work. That trip was divinely timed 2 weeks before my surgery and both experiences stripped me back raw naked to the roots of my soul! Wow!

I had big business goals and so many ideas I wanted to implement ‘this year’ and many of them didn’t happen because I felt my spiritual growth and healing was my priority and simply where I was drawn to invest my time and energy. It was almost as though I didn’t care about ‘when’ I achieved these goals because I know they will happen when they are meant to.

We learn, grow and teach from wisdom and experience. 2023 has improved my confidence, worth and perspective, which has made me a better teacher, leader and human being. Ready to implement the next phase of my business visions with this new up-levelled version of me. Again I trust the process and believe in divine timing and effortless unfolding of our manifestations as opposed to force and pressure just to hit a date/time goal!

  • This year has been my biggest year of spiritual/personal growth and for that Iโ€™m grateful. I have clarity on who I am, what I want and my purpose
  • My intuition is my superpower and Iโ€™ve truly learnt the lesson of trusting it. I have all the answers I need within and donโ€™t need opinions. My oracle cards have become like talking to a best friend
  • Stop looking at what other people are doing on socials and comparing or feeling inadequate. No more!
  • My body is beautiful as it is and I truly love who I am
  • Being sensual as a woman is one of lifeโ€™s greatest pleasures. Itโ€™s empowering to know your body intimately and truly feel all your senses come alive in lifeโ€™s simplest moments. Yoga has taught me so much of this!
  • Yoga is a non negotiable for me to feel my absolute best
  • I have the power to manifest everything my heart desires and dream bigger. My ideas and dreams are inside me because they are absolutely possible and I wouldnโ€™t have the vision if it wasnโ€™t!
  • Let go of the constraint of time and pressure of time based goals and limited thinking
  • Live in alignment with my human design. It works! Trust my gut, follow it and donโ€™t feel bad for changing my mind or saying no 
  • I am stronger and more powerful and capable than I think
  • My kids are stronger and more powerful and capable than I thought 
  • Listen more to my loved ones and speak less, they donโ€™t always need my advice 
  • No more courses in 2024โ€ฆtime for massive aligned action
  • Reflection and releasing is now a lifelong continual consistent ritual. It’s life changing!
  • Make more time for fun and make it a priority. Prioritise more family time, holidays, weekends away and date nights like I used to. Travel is back baby!
  • No matter how busy life and business gets donโ€™t neglect my own health and fitness ever again
  • I simply feel better eating more plant based, but sometimes I crave fish, chicken, carbs. Eat intuitively because I am now so connected that my body tells me what I need. Pay attention
  • What gets scheduled gets done. I need a little more planning and organisation, without losing my spontaneity and easy going flowing nature
  • Less is more. I don’t need as much stuff
  • Love and love some more! Love on those closest to me, love on myself and look at the world and others through the eyes of love always
  • Nature is my happy place. Go there more!
  • Rest and self care is a non negotiable and my body, my soul communicates my needs. Listen and take aligned action
  • Being truly authentic is the only way to live. You manifest and create from authenticity. Plus you just feel happier and more fulfilled
