Monthly Round Up: January;

I swear I was just saying farewell to 2014! And all of a sudden, January has come to an end. As I look over the last month, the word ACTIVE jumps right out at me.

Considering I tore my hamstring in December, I’ve done pretty well with recovery. January was all about walking around Albert Park lake, heading out to the 1,000 steps in the Dandenong Ranges, walking around the Yarra river and LOTS of gym time.

I’ve spent a lot of time at the beach, laying down or going for a coastal walk in the evening and there’s been lots of exploring done this month. I went to Cape Schanck and Dromana early January and end of January, explored Healesville and Marysville, situated 90 mins north east of the CBD.

I saw Gabrielle Bernstein, spent the day at Rob Laver Arena, watching the tennis for the Australian Open, celebrated a friends 30th and somehow snuck in a visit to Penny Black for another One Day Sunday (so much fun!)

I checked out The Alley in Dromana, Mrytles Crepes, Nutrition Bar and Fred Gets. I first heard about Fred Gets when Pana Chocolate were closed for the summer but posted about their treats being sold in Fitzroy in January. I pretty much moved over to Melbourne for these Pana so not one to miss an opportunity to try their sugar free treats, I met up with a California yogi and we spent a few hours enjoying yummy salads, fresh juices and of course, Pana.

If you’re around Fitzroy (or you love Pana or Zebra ice cream), I suggest spending a few hours in this cool café. It’s a combination of like-minded businesses situated in one premise. I highly recommend the place!




After seeing Gabby Bernstein the other night, I figured it’s a pretty good time to start a new paper journal. My current one dates from the end of November 2013, when I finished university, flew to Melbourne and then decided it was time to move to this beloved city to the beginning of January 2015, where I was constantly doubting the timing of it all.

As I was about to go to the shops this morning and pick up some new notebooks, I saw a post by Earth Events that totally blew me away.

Todays date, January 11th (aka 11/1) refers to Angel Number 111 which is a powerful number of manifesting and manifestation and it carries the combined attributes and energies of Number 1 and the Karmic Master Number 11.

Number 1 resonates with assertiveness, independence, uniqueness, motivation, new beginnings and striving forward as well as insight, self-leadership, inspiration, positivity and achieving success.

Number 11 tells us that to connect with our higher selves is to know and live our soul mission and life purpose.

Number 111 symbolises the principles of spiritual awakening and enlightenment, high energy, inspiration, intuition, self expression and sensitivity.

Angel Number 111 is a message from your angels to be very aware of your persistent thoughts and ideas as these are manifesting quickly into your reality. Ensure that your beliefs, thoughts and mindsets are positive and optimistic in order to draw the energies of abundance and balance into your life. Angel Number 111 signifies that an energetic gateway has opened up for you, and this will rapidly manifest your thoughts into your reality*.

So here I am, two new notebooks in hand ready for 2015. Feeling rather silly for EVER doubting the Universe!

Ready to get manifesting? Here’s how! (and here and here for bonus help).

An evening with a Spirit Junkie;

Last night, I went and saw Gabrielle Bernstein speak for a few hours but it almost didn’t happen.

All week, I’ve been feeling really off, not my usual self. It’s a feeling that’s come & gone ever since I moved to Melbourne at the beginning of November last year. I’ve wanted this move for YEARS but then the weeks leading up to the move, there were so many feelings of doubt that rushed over me.

I’ve had that exact feeling rush over me before so I knew I needed to push through. There’s been two times I remember having such overwhelming doubt. Once was before my first solo trip to California when I was eighteen and the second time, just before I set off for a three month solo backpacking trip through Europe/United Kingdom. The only difference was those two times were holidays, whereas, moving to Melbourne is so much more permanent.

Over the last two months, I’ve doubted the timing of it all numerous times. I would keep thinking how I SHOULD have stayed in Perth until the end of the summer like originally planned. But does that thought help me right now? Nope.

So this week has been a constant battle in my mind. I would keep getting those negative thoughts that do me absolutely no good and I would immediately dismiss them. I’m thankful I had years of emotional behavioural therapy (EBT) to teach me the techniques to break cycles but it still drains my energy.

Come Thursday afternoon, all I wanted to do was eat my weight in pastries. Earth Events, the girls that have brought Gabby to Australia sent out an email saying to get clear on our intention for the night. And I thought, “What if I could learn ONE new thing that can help me break out of this slump?”
