Lessons from 2023

2023 was an interesting year. It was a year of surrender, healing and everything moving so slowly including me. As someone who is a pretty driven, dreamer this taught me a lot. 


Learning from our experience adds meaning to our lives. If you get the chance I highly urge you to pause and reflect on the year just past. Take it slow, allow yourself to embody what you have learned before racing into the the next year. What I have discovered is that racing ahead with little reflection or learnings leads to the lessons being repeated and repeated. With the universe kicking us in the butt if we really don't listen up. 


Here I share my personal 5 main learnings. Some may resonate, some may not. They may give you an idea as to where to find your own learnings. Certainly the first 4 have something to offer us all. 


My word for the year last year was “Vibrancy.” I entered the year with such a low energy and vibe. This word was my guiding light. I...

The Art of Rest: 7 ways to reduce burnout

Lying in my bed, 8.40am just gazing out the window. The sky is grey, the trees are blowing gently. There is a stillness and quiet. I have never really been one for lying in bed unless I am ill. I love waking early and making the most from my days.

But what I have discovered over the festive break is a really deep love of rest. I never knew how much I needed this pure quiet time. My brain has had an opportunity to switch off fully, not planning, not running from one thing to the next just simply being present and mindful.

2022 taught me a lot about rest. My body had been overstimulated and I was being guided to deepen my understanding of healing, rest and repair.

What is your relationship with rest? I had shared post on social media about rest and many commented how they had struggled with this very thing. Mainly due to societal conditioning that rest equals laziness.

We are not designed to be on the go 24/7, 365 days a year. We are designed to move with the cycles of nature and...

She Gave a Poem by Susi McWilliam

She gave all she could

She gave love to those who felt unloveable

She gave hugs to those who lacked connection

She gave support to those who felt weak

She gave positivity to those who felt low

She held their hands as they navigated fear

She listened to those who felt unheard

She gave hope to those who felt helpless

Then came life

It swept in and chipped at her soul

Challenge after challenge, it eroded her edge

She began to fade

The energy she lovingly gave was gone

The positivity she shared diminished

Fragments of her soul blew away on the wind

She closed her weary eyes, her ancestors and guides appeared

They stroked her, wrapped her in blankets and fed her soup

They rubbed her feet and hugged her

They gently held her hand as she walked

They showed her, her beauty and filled her soul

Piece by piece they put her back together

A different and beautiful masterpiece

Only then did she realise she was enough

She was loved

She is love

Life is Softening a Poem by Susi McWilliam

Life is softening


What if you wake and move gently into your day

Give up the harsh struggle and pain

You are being offered another way

Life is softening


What if you place your hands over your womb and give thanks to this space of creation. Give thanks to your parents, elders, ancestors and self

Life is softening


What if instead of illness, dis-ease, and uncomfortable sensations. You chose I am healing, I am growing, my health improves daily.

Life is softening


What if instead of fighting, hustling, pushing. You could rest, explore with curiosity, seek support and solutions.

Life is softening.


What if the support you’re seeking is right beneath your feet from Mother Earth herself. What if the beauty you’re seeking is right above you in father sky. What if the thoughts you are desiring can be changed. Ask and you shall receive.

Life is softening


Release, release, trust and have faith

Because life is softening
