Vessels of Honour

Listening to Oprah’s podcast again, this time with Tim Storey, I’m struck by his phrase, “a vessel of honour”. Those who know me will know my love of words. I love how words sound together, how they conjure up images and feelings, and how the right words at the right time can elevate us to lighter moods and higher outlooks.

So, today I’m being a vessel of honour. And it feels great. To me it means that I set aside my doubts and concerns, my self-pity and my fears, and I fill myself with optimism and possibility. I ask, “What if today was going to be a great day? What if I could let things be easy? What if I could shine like the star I am from now til dusk? What if this blog could pretty much write itself as I allow myself to rise above the fear of judgement and the risk of failure?

Being a vessel of honour asks me to stand a little taller and breathe a little deeper. But it’s not just that. Being a vessel of honour calls me to awaken within and let my heart fully open into the moment. Connecting with my honour stirs my courage. Connecting with my honour reminds me that I have gifts to share and help to offer.

It’s with this openhearted courage that I invite you to the next stop on the Tribe of Thrive train.



If you want to get on with living and thriving; If you need to get unstuck; If anxiety’s holding you back; this 4 week evening class is for you.

A neuroscience-driven, fun and transformative way to get inspired, get focused, get confident and get on. You just need to get booked in. Full details are on my website.

All vessels of honour are welcome. And I’m excited to share this time, this learning and this opportunity with you.  Contact me to reserve your place.

 

Every Good Act is an Expression of Love

I feel humbled several times a day.

Today, as I ran through Horfield Common, listening to Malala Yousafzai talk to Oprah (on SuperSoul Conversations podcast), I was brought to tears.

Malala ignites in me a magnificent sense of awe and wonder at the strength, courage and potential that lies within us as humans. The power of intention. The majesty and the ministry of love.

Every good act on the planet is an expression of love. To be of service to others, and therefore to the world, is to make love manifest.

Malala’s path is to bring education to every girl. Mine feels twofold… to inspire fellow practitioners towards effortless excellence and to ease everyone towards wellness.

I want to live in a Tribe of Thrive. Do you want to join?
