Alison Cooper : Soul Transition

On the 20th December it will be 1 year since an old boyfriend died. I prefer the word transitioned because I don’t believe that leaving our physical body is the end but a transition into a new beginning. Typically, I had left the hospice at the time of his passing which is often the case as the dying usually prefer not to have loved ones around at this time, they don’t want them to suffer any more than they have to and wait until they leave the room, typically for…

Picking Up The Good Vibrations: How To Raise Your Frequency

The Beach Boys referred to it in their song “Good Vibrations” and Lenny Kravitz in his recent track “Raise Vibration”; our vibration is the way we transmit or give out the signal of how we truly feel or operate in our world.  When we say someone has ‘good vibes’, we are really talking about that person’s vibrational energy.  Happy people vibrate on a much higher frequency; you can literally feel their effervescence!  Generally speaking, people move in and out of various vibrational frequencies at different times throughout their day or…

New Year’s Resolutions – the surprisingly simple trick to sticking with your goals.

If you have ever made a New Year Resolution only to see your resolve evaporate like the morning fog even before February has begun, you are not alone! Change is hard and changing the way we do things, based on a dwindling supply of willpower, is extremely hard!  Knowing intellectually that change is necessary in order for us to grow makes no difference at all when it actually comes to dealing with the inbuilt resistance that we all have to doing things differently. So, what is it that is really…

An Air of Silence: How to quieten the noise in your life

According to the World Health Organisation, noise pollution is the second biggest environmental threat to our health after air pollution.  They suggest that 40% of Europe’s population is exposed to noise levels in excess of 55dB at night; a level that disturbs sleep, concentration and productivity, raised blood pressure and has increased the incidences of heart disease.  Because we cannot see it, it is easy to overlook the serious impact that noise can have on our health. Today’s world is full of distraction.  Our pace of life is fuelled by…

Neil Seligman: 10 New Year’s Resolutions That Actually Might Change Your Life

Resolutions are about self-improvement, right? Wrong! If you are setting off into 2019 hoping to improve yourself, you are already off on the wrong foot because resolutions are really about self-knowledge, not self-improvement. Here’s why: In spiritual terms, you reside in a permanent state of perfection. You are complete just as you are. There is absolutely nothing to improve upon. When we forget this, and create resolutions with the intention of self-improvement, our commitments tend to be underpinned with our own negative judgments and laced with self-rejection. No wonder most…

Neil Seligman: Jumping Ship or Stuck in a Rut? Help is Here!

In the last months of my career as a Barrister there were signs telling me that something was off in my life. My relationship with my boyfriend was no longer bringing me joy, inspiration, or fun. (If I am honest, there was a voice in my head for quite a while telling me to jump ship on that one, long before I had the courage to do so). In addition, my scalp felt like it was pushing the hair on my head out with boiling daggers (a very bizarre and…

Do You Need To Heal Your Relationship With Food?

“Dear Diet, Things just aren’t going to work between us. It’s not me, it’s you. You’re tasteless, boring and I can’t stop cheating on you.
