OMG I bought a bike….

OMG I bought a bike….

I was having a conversation with a dear friend about poor impulse control (in the context of food). She and I have often talked about the kind of exercise we enjoy, and the subject of cycling came up. Ironically, we immediately visited our local charity bike shop and purchased two very cheap second-hand bikes!

 

I can read your mind….

I can read your mind….

No, I’m not Paul McKenna! 

My Notes from the Universe have a habit of landing just when I need them most. Well, of course they do, that’s The Universe in evidence. Today, my Note read: “Meriel, whatever you think someone else is thinking, they’re probably not. But they are receiving signals about what you think they’re thinking, Meriel… and these signals could change what they’re thinking. So connected, The Universe.”

 

Your lens

Before I write a new blog, I always have a look back to see whether I’ve written something similar in the past. Sometimes I write about the same topic in many different ways as I think it’s a message worth repeating. This is one of those times…

The wisdom of Yoda

The wisdom of Yoda

I can’t believe in all these years that I’ve never blogged about Yoda. He’s had some very insightful one-liners in the last 30 odd years!

 

 

All work and no play

All work and no play

Making time for change

Making time for change

I’ve received numerous emails or voicemail messages which say “sorry, too busy to come for my coaching session today…”

Resistance is futile

Resistance is futile

Human beings are becoming more anxious (perhaps all living things are). The media tells us so. And in the last year I’ve had an increasing number of requests for support with anxiety.

Last week, I attended a Yoga class for the first time in my life. This is me doing the downward facing dog….. not.

A season of liberation

A season of liberation

I love camping. Last weekend I was at a festival in Upton-on-Severn in Worcestershire. If you’d said to me ten years ago that I’d embrace camping, my response may have been peppered with Anglo-Saxon language!

 

Mortal or God?

Mortal or God?

A recent note I received from The Universe:

“When the external begins to define the internal, Meriel, instead of the internal defining the external, one begins living as a mortal rather than as a god. Trust me, as a god is better. Boom…. The Universe.”

Again and again and again

Again and again and again

Again, again, again! The sound of a small child begging a parent to repeat the exercise. Probably something exciting like a swing, a slide, or the bumps.
