Where did the world go wrong that online platforms are inundated with courses on abundance, positivity, how to find love, etc.
False positivity. Affirmations. Manifestation. These are the buzz words consistently and obsessively touted as the pathway to Happiness.
But, being told to stay positive, find love, manifest your perfect life, all allude to a set of ideal criteria that will make you ‘better’ … which has the sole consequence of making you feel worse.
And what if there really IS no pathway to happiness?
What if happiness already exists in each and every moment?
When you can stop avoiding feeling or being a certain way, happiness is a natural by-product of the contentment that comes with being present to whatever arises and the realisation that perfection lies in ALL of the messiness of life.
What if all you have to do is stop looking for it … and just STOP and LOOK? Abundance was here all along.
Immortality is the new alchemical remedy that is taking the world by storm. The phoenix is the symbol of Immortality and it is often from the ashes that we rise … into a new state of being; everything we have ever wanted to be.
First we must acknowledge what we have dumped on the body — in the process of taking Immortality, old memories and wounds will emerge for acknowledgment, acceptance and release and it is important to honour and traverse each part of this healing. The reward is a younger you — tighter skin, more flexible joints, stronger muscles and bones, youthful energy, and the ability to see what it is that has been preventing you from releasing certain stuck emotions and injuries.
One bottle (R1,500) lasts a month and it’s only necessary to have two bottles initially (with an optional integration gap of a month between bottles) and then one bottle every year or two.

‘The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.’ ~ C.G. Jung
When trauma is imprinted on the cells of the body – often from childhood abuse, neglect and/or abandonment – an individual may constantly seek out a state of nervous system activation, pushing oneself into situations of hyper-arousal, in order to feel fully embodied.
It’s as though the brain is constantly scanning for tigers in the jungle and the nervous system isn’t given a chance to down regulate because the mammalian brain consistently overrides the neo-cortex in an attempt to justify this sympathetic nervous system activation.
When you identify the threat as illusory it is a step towards reassuring your system that it won’t get pounced on by that tiger if you sit still.
The next step is finding comfort in the stillness … and that’s where this profound healing modality comes in.
Craniosacral Therapy can help your system clear the emotional, spiritual, physical and psychological sludge that is essentially preventing you from living according to your full potential with meaning and purpose.
Shed the layers of who you aren’t in order to become who you are here to be.
When you can’t change a situation, you’re forced to change yourself. Humanity has lived a life of the caterpillar for way too long and has been forced now to wrap itself in a cocoon where we can isolate ourselves and go deep within to find those parts of ourselves that need to change.
The only home we have is our planet, our environment, our very beings.
And right now we are being challenged to change from the inside out; to shift things and shake things so we don’t come out the other side to ‘business as usual’ but as beings adapted to change.
It’s a sign of insanity to keep doing the same things whilst expecting a different outcome. We have to now push through those pains of metamorphosis and decide if we come out flying or if we die resisting the change.
It’s time to learn to operate as part of the whole so as not to be constantly at war with an environment we are knowingly exploiting, abusing, destroying … killing!
We are all complicit in this massacre.
Why? Because we don’t want to change our behaviours and habits; so we don’t have to learn to live in a manner that honours our bodies and souls.
Because, I assure you, if everyone simply worked in harmony with their own beings, their immediate environment would change and the extrapolated ripple effect would naturally result in a healthy planet 🌍
Are you going to make this time matter?
Can you stop fighting the virus 🦠 accept the virus, and recognise we ARE the virus?
Only if you accept this challenge will things change and you’ll be able to step out of your cocoon to a new inner and outer world.
These times we are traversing present us with unprecedented challenges with no real reference points to provide a safety net or anchor point of stability. It can send the most resilient of us into overwhelm.
I am not a believer in false positivity and inauthentically striving to be happy. I am a believer in being present for whatever presents itself and in fully showing up for it.
If anxiety wants your attention – or fear, or anger – be present for it as though it’s a small child that’s scared, crying for attention, in need of some reassurance. Pick it up and really connect with it to find out what it wants … then wrap it up, comfort it and put it to bed.
If you’re trying to be happy all the time, you probably won’t be happy – it’s like giving the baby a pacifier and waiting for it to figure out it hasn’t actually gotten what it needs … all those ignored emotions will keep vying for your attention.
But if you let go on your fixation with happiness, the fullness of all that you are will be able to emerge and guess how that’s going to make you feel?
Yeah …! Happy 🙂
“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”
I was drawn to this quote by Pema Chödrön because of how it speaks to the work I do. Because we are all the walking wounded, the terms healer and wounded in the context of the therapy space are interchangeable.
I am reminded of the rich and vivid, DESIDERATA, which guides one in the understanding that one should never take anything for granted because “always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself”, mostly because I am acutely aware in my healing sessions that often the very thing my clients come to me for are the things I need to learn. And, although I have been on a long and arduous journey towards my own spiritual, emotional and mental health, I am in no way a master because we are none of us finished products in the passage towards the ultimate light of awakening.
What I can say, in my deepest truth, is that part of the reason I am such a good facilitator of this work is because I have walked through many a dark night of the soul and I know my darkness well. And, because of this, I have developed compassion enough to sit with you in your darkness and share our mutual humanity. I continue to step into my greatest areas of growth and I will never stop because I will never be done. We teach each other because, as Ram Das famously says, “we are all just walking each other home.”
There is a revolutionary shift in healing perspective when you can praise your body’s illness. When symptoms appear it is because your body is intelligent enough to dialogue with you — often after long periods of repression — about showing up for yourself to release holding patterns trapped in your cells.
Craniosacral Therapy gently supports the unwinding and release of traumas and stresses that are causing the symptoms, thereby allowing the mind body connection the libido to return to a more balanced function.
True healing comes when you can treat your illness as an old friend who’s come for tea and a candid conversation.
We are programmed to put our power in the hands of others — the so-called experts, who are given carte blanche to decide our fate based on the very limited perceptions they have of our unique individuality.
I have explored all avenues for someone to show me what my life purpose is but I have never expected anyone else to decide who I am and what I am here for.
Through techniques including astrology, Enneagram, chakra work, Tarot, numerology, Vipassana, body work, art medicine, dance and plant medicine journeys, I have explored my inner landscapes like a true nomad and I have gathered fragments of my psyche, physicality and emotional makeup to stitch together the essence that is me.
Craniosacral Therapy — in the form that I practice it … not prescriptive but functional — bringing in all the aspects of my own journey — is my superpower.
