Life as a Mumma – The first day

 

I think we’d met about 2 hours before this picture was taken.  It was a clear and beautiful November day. The most exhilarating day of my life.  The high was mind blowing.  The midwives were amazing.  Especially sweet Rachel who was with us for our first day.  She really helped encourage me to get the right position for breastfeeding.  I definitely didn’t feel like I remotely had the knack but she was super positive for me.

Nothing can prepare you for that intense love and bonding that happens that first day.

I stayed in a few days.  Unfortunately I’d lost a lot of blood and I needed a transfusion to get me strong again.  Best decision I made doing that and such a supportive team of doctors and midwives. I had an incredible birthing partner who, without her, I can’t imagine the ease, comfort and flow happening as beautifully and supported as it did with the whole birthing journey.

I moved home and began my new life with my new beautiful daughter in my home in Gorey.

Nothing else prepared me for the intense vulnerability I was now faced with in my new role.  Feeling quite inadequately equipped in the mother and care taking role, I just had to jump right in and follow my instincts. It took me a very long time to actually accept what had just happened to me.  The Mother transformation was the biggest and most opening process I have ever been through.

The time has come to close the doors to Earth Beauty after over 10 years of being open for wellness and natural beauty so that I can devote all my energy to being a new mama.

I’m so thankful to Janice, my mother, for having such a gorgeous and centrally located space to practice in for all these years and so thankful to all of you wonderful people who came to see me at one time or another.  Everyone loved the tranquil feeling in this space despite being in such a busy part of town.  Some of you I journeyed with deep and for long times, others, it was short but equally as deep, and others flew in and out like butterflies in the breeze. Everyone has shown me and taught me something valuable to integrate and take away to this next part of my life.

The beautiful studio that I use is awaiting fresh energy to take over and the rent is very reasonable!  Days available are: Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. If you are interested and would like to see the space, please call Janice on 07797826957 or 601925.

Food Intolerance Testing on the Rise!

It seems that we are getting wiser.  Although its unlikely if you go into a doctors surgery complaining of chronic digestive issues, energy lapses, headaches and skin issues, that they will advise you seek out a specialist who tests food intolerances, current statistics say that over 45% of our population have become intolerant to one or more foods in their diets! To this day doctors still do not offer tests for ‘intolerances’ which is a different reaction to the classic acute, sometimes life threatening ‘allergy’ reaction.

Poor gut health, low immunity, stress, environmental toxins and certain allopathic medicines have been taking their toll on our ability to properly digest and assimilate food for years now.

I use the Food Detective Test – the test I believe to be the most accurate on the market in diagnosing food intolerances.  Just a 10minute appointment for a pin prick of blood is needed and in 45 mins I can call you with results that include 46 foods tested.

Its the first step I recommend in bringing the pendulum back to balance for our health and wellbeing!  With me at Earth Beauty you have the choice to upgrade this service to include a 3 month plan plus a set of life coaching sessions to really transform your life and achieve your goals.

 

The cost of the Food Detective Food Intolerance Test is £70.

If you are suffering from one or more of the below, choose to take a food intolerance test today and I’d be happy to help you with your pathway back to feeling good again.

Chronic fatigue

Strong food cravings

Irritable bowel (including bloating, diarrhoea or constipation)

Depression

Hyperactivity and bedwetting in children

Rhinitis Eczema/psoriasis,

Itches and rashes

Asthma

Ongoing Sinus problems or ear infections

Chronic mouth ulcers

Joint aches and pains

Moving into a New Rite of Passage for the Feminine

wildwoman

This feels by far like my greatest rite of passage yet.  The journey to motherhood! Pregnancy! An exhilarating, intensely vulnerable roller-coaster gestation period where I have found strength and incredible support from my soul sisters around me.  The world will never be the same and sometimes I am just overwhelmed by this blessing of life.  I must be ready! But some days I am kicking and screaming as I wrestle with my inner pixie who just doesn’t want to grow up and claim her full power and responsibility as a woman.  38 years of only taking care of myself, and a few furry friends along the way have created and affirmed a selfishness of my life and all my own childhood nuances and fears leaping out of the cupboard to taunt me and tell me of the shadows of childhood/motherhood.  Supportive, warm beings whispering in my ears of what a wonderful mother I will be only slightly lessens the fear of the harm that could come from projecting my crap onto this divine little being.  I feeling the heightened sensitivity to all noises, smells, our patriarchal focused world … and again I dive into the deep dark reflective well that I know so dear, craving for a matriarchal, flourishing community of life around me.  How can I bring this little being authentically into a world that I know is madness? There is nothing like this before that has shown me that now is the time to carve out the dreams that have been lingering in my heart, now is the time to plant the seeds to really create a future living integrally and in tune with nature and the ancient wise ways! Such a blessing to receive this gift!! I already feel the mama energy in me and wow … its quite incredible!

Dancing with Intimacy

intiate handsAs I reflect over the awesomeness that was this weekend, I want to thank again all of you gorgeous dancing warriors that joined us for the journey … and that includes the amazing Friday night-ers that came just for one night. I am in so much gratitude for the depth of sharing and heart connections that occurred and were formed over the weekend.

Dancing brings up stuff, some bitter, some sweet, it bring us together, it brings us into our power, it brings us into our vulnerability and it brings us into our joy, truth and our true potential.  When you combine that with a facilitator who carries with him his own gifts and intentions of breaking down barriers in humankind, you get an extremely heart warming and healing time for anyone there.

Tim Broughton created a very safe and loving space for us all this weekend, using exercise structures, the 5Rhythms, and our sacred dance space to bring us more into our hearts, truth and vulnerability.  Our theme ‘Intimacy, Innocence and Connection’ had even made a few of our long-term ‘Soul Movement’ dancers feel the pangs of resistance in coming to this weekend but many just chose to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’.  Its scary to be open, showing our tenderness and vulnerability but wow does the world need it right now! Most people I meet are aching to feel at home in themselves again and aching to feel better connected to those around them. If we just do nothing about it, then nothing happens and we remain aching and longing, but this weekend really showed us that our power lies in our hearts … and to hear our hearts we need to let go of those conflicting thoughts and beliefs and make a few courageous innocent moves in the direction of what we want in our life and how we want to live.  Thank you Tim and everyone for being a part of something that has recharged me, given me new tools and left me excited about how I can saturate these important qualities into my life.

Ancient Wisdom for Jersey by Little Grandmother

heart pyramidJersey was blessed to have Little Grandmother, aka Keisha Crowther over this past weekend to teach and deliver an important message to us all.

Her message was clear – for us to be living in the power, beauty and sustenance that is Love and Heart consciousness, instead of the EGO consciousness that generates so much fear and suppression in ourselves.

THE POWER OF THE HEART

The energy of the heart is incredibly powerful – and the highest and most healing emotional state is gratitude (even more beneficial than LOVE).  And we can CHOOSE to live in that state by just putting our focus there.  Letting go of ego consciousness and moving into the heart also means letting go of the need for status, the fear of judgment, the need for more and more money, fame or approval from others and all the negative states that attach themselves to this way of living so we can instead be living and expressing our passions in a way that SUPPORTS all of life by loving each other and working together to stay awake, aware and active in our pursuits to care for each other, and care for and heal the Earth.  When we bring our hearts together we are even more magical and powerful … we are not meant to stand alone.

WE HAVE NO MORE TIME

The message was so beautiful and simple, we ARE caretakers of Mother Earth, we all have a responsibility to act NOW to make the right choices to change ourselves and to save our beautiful planet because she’s being destroyed beyond repair and tipping over the edge rapidly.  We aren’t going to hear about this in our news  … but the scientists are telling us that there’s absolutely no time left. The poles have begun to shift and soon things will change dramatically for us all.

THE MAGIC OF CRYSTALS AND WATER

She stressed to us how we can also help our Mother Earth using the power of crystals to heal the radiation around us …  pretty much everything is already contaminated with it now thanks to Fukushima and its continual daily release of radiation into the earth and sea ….  we can put our intentions and prayers into crystals and release them back to the earth and the waters of our planet.  Apparently quartz is the best for this.  Even add them to your water jugs and fridges to cleanse your food of radiation (this has been proven to work!).  It was really good to be reminded of the power of words and prayer upon crystals and water (and OURSELVES as we are mostly water!!) as already researched and proven by Dr Masaru Emoto and the famous ‘Hidden Messages in Water’. Every thought, wish, word we express, are literally creating imprints, moment by moment upon our emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing and those around us.  It is insane to choose to live from a lower vibration of being now that we know this.

CREATE YOUR PERSONAL PRAYER

My personal prayer for Jersey is that we slow down and listen to ourselves, to nature, the animals and the trees, and hear what is being said.  That we look to support each other and care for each other and learn to express ourselves and our own needs and true passions.  Is it really so important to keep on having to acquire more and more, each day working harder and harder mindlessly without respite or time to just BE? Will this all matter in the final analysis of what our lives have meant to be living here on Earth today when we leave our bodies as we all inevitably will do? Listen to your heart closely, what would your heart say right now if you quietened your mind and let your heart speak and act for you? Who would you Be if you let go of the importance of serving yourSELF?

Thanks to the Isis Centre for organising this great day!
