Overcome Your Contempt For Ordinary

main-qimg-289bca588eaf1c305e4452663dd60215It’s time to Embrace Your ORDINARY EXTRAORDINARINESS. 

I want to challenge the notion that I have seen flying around lately by some coaches who say ‘think small’. I say “THINK BIG”, because that is your nature.

You CAN have it all because you ARE it all.

Five Reasons To Learn The REAL Keys To Creative Leadership

WOMEN LEADERS … Here’s what I know. Creating what you want is simple, BUT …

For too long now, the versions of successful creation we’ve been sold remove essential steps so people can make it SOUND more simple. Because of this, although many of these methods come from truth, they have been DILUTED. As a result they can sabotage success, as we become discouraged when our visualisations are unsuccessful, or when our ‘magnetic attraction’ efforts result in financial failure. Instead of learning to create more effectively, often many turn away from our deeper calling.

Make no mistake, mindset and visualization ARE important elements of an integrated, balanced and grounded approach to manifestation, but they must be paired with many other elements.

Creating looks like MAGIC when it happens with grace, ease and alignment – this can happen when you learn to work with all levels and steps of the natural creative process. 


When you learn to create at all levels, a number of things happen …

How To Answer Your Soul’s Calling – Lessons From a Tiny Hummingbird

What is a ‘Soul Calling’? We hear it bandied around a lot, but what does it actually mean?

The way I see it, a ‘Soul Calling’ is your personal recognition of the fact that

“You are alive, which means you have a purpose”.

So often, in this driven society, dominated by the pursuit of ‘success’, we believe our Purpose must be related with something big.  It must be connected to some HUGE thing in the world.

But is that the truth? Or is it possible this is all part of the illusion, designed to keep you feeling small and insignificant? Created so you believe you are too ordinary to make a difference?

Have you heard the story of the hummingbird? Allow me to share it with you, to emphasise a point …

11 Ways To Say “I Love You”

WeddingIt’s my 11th wedding anniversary. Last year, and this year it seems, questions of ‘commitment’ have surfaced. Blaaaggghhh! Seriously?

Yep. Questions like

“How committed am I to see this through for the long haul?”

“How much more do I want to endure the ‘same old’ conversations?”

“Is this life of monogamy truly what I want?”


They’re all pretty full on questions, right? But I’m an honest person, so I’m honestly sharing them with you. My relationship is pretty great. It’s not perfect, but is any relationship perfect? Or maybe, no matter where you are in your relationship, it’s perfect if you’re prepared to see it as a vessel for your spiritual growth.

How to uncover your real power.

Our world is in a phase of transition. More people are discovering that the old, masculine paradigms of competition, lies, deceit, lack of direction, are not what they want for our world anymore.

More and more men are becoming lost, because this supposed way of being a man – this illusion of ‘success’, which comes at the expense of the health of our Mother Earth – no longer resonates with them. And they’re not sure what to do with this ‘feeling’.

Stop Kidding Yourself. What Do You Really Want?

It’s the time of ‘new year resolutions’. But it’s also the time of powerful cosmic movement, which is actually more important than a man-made concept of a time of year to start new things.

Whether you ‘believe’ in astrology or not, current cosmic movement offers the opportunity to release past conditioning and old belief patterns, which no longer serve you.

We all have these patterns. You know the ones …

They are those excuses we use to tell ourselves we ‘can’t’ do something when we really want to, or the things I tell myself I ‘should’ be doing, when it is actually the last thing I want to be doing!


“If I have lost confidence in myself, I have the universe against me!” – Ralph Waldo Emerson


These things you tell yourself LIMIT you.

Teach your children to live with LOVE, HOPE and CONFIDENCE, and provide their learning in a way so that when they hear BEAUTIFUL things about themselves they BELIEVE them, so they have the STRENGTH to see the TRUTH in their beauty.

You can do this by Living True to Your Authentic Self. Because children learn from your example, not from your words.

It’s my mission in life to help you understand how you can best do it for you – not by telling you how to do it, but by asking you questions, which inspire you to travel inwardly and discover the answers from Your Deepest Self.

In 2015, the workshop Healthier Kids, Healthier Home, Happier You will be a regular program of The Centre For Resilient Leadership, of which I am a founder. I look forward to sharing more of what we have in store over the coming days.

And, I look forward to sharing more tips, tools, and having healthier discussions about how to raise our children on a healthier planet!

Love, Kirsty

Not Just Rememberance Day

Love, Joy, Compassion and Kindness go a long way every day.

loveI shared this post on Rememberance Day, November 11, on my Facebook timeline, and I received so much beautiful feedback I decided to share it with you on the blog.

I wrote it after ‘Lest We Forget‘, where I spoke of the significance of the 11.11 doorway. Enjoy …

Here’s why Rememberance Day is so important to me. And why I, personally, am placing a whole bunch of Love, Joy, Compassion and Kindness in to that doorway at 11am today. Seven and a half years ago, a man who was feeling a bit (no, a lot) broken returned to me from a war zone. Well, he didn’t actually fully return at that time – his complete return took several years.

But here’s the thing. I never, not once, bought in to the belief that there was anything wrong with him. There wasn’t. What he needed was someone to continue to affirm the fact that he was ALIVE! And what was necessary was for him to make a different DECISION about himself, and about this gift of a second chance at life. Because, let’s face it, things weren’t looking so bright before he got hit by the bomb.

Nope. I never ever bought into the entitlement, to the self-pity, to the belief that life was hell. I just loved him, as best I could. It didn’t always seem like a perfect love, but it was just what he needed. Sometimes it was pretty tough love actually.

And, little by little, he started to see what I was on about. And when he fully bought in to this fact that LIFE IS A GIFT (and he had been given an incredibly huge one!), our life together began to turn around. Now it is amazing, and my own love of life is ever-expanding, because of him. Because of you, James Greenshields.

And in the last couple of years, others have seen what he has done with his life, and have wanted to know how they can do the same. So he taught them how. They too are now turning their lives around and the people who love them are thankful. His program is Awakening The Warrior Within.

So here’s what I’m remembering today, at 11am.

I remember the miracle of Abi waking when James was hit by the bomb so we could help him come back to his body and begin the journey of healing.

I remember the miracle of conceiving our miracle Pene, in my first cycle after his return from Iraq.

I remember the miracle of falling in love all over again, with a man I had never met, because the old ‘us’ died somewhere along the way, so the new ‘us’ could create a life of joy together.
