ALIGNED Workshop Melbourne

From the moment we walked through the door of The Windsor Workshop, I knew the ALIGNED Melbourne event was going to be special. It was warm, inviting, open, light filled and oh so beautiful.

We filled the room with bright, beautiful blooms from Tillda flowers, gifts from our wonderful sponsors and a group of incredible women who greeted us with wide smiles, great big hugs and genuine excitement on arrival.

We eased into the day with tea, coffee, fruit and cheerful chatter and it was so lovely to have time to get to know everyone and settle in before Rach and I presented.

It felt almost surreal to be standing at the front of the room with Rachael Kable and welcoming the ladies in the room to ALIGNED.

From a little idea we hatched over brunch one Melbourne morning in March, to standing next to one of my best friends, a woman who inspires me on a daily basis, and sharing our stories, our selves and our passions with a room full of incredible women; there was something truly magic about it.

Over the course of 2 hours, Rach shared the most beautiful journey into mindfulness.

We set meaningful intentions, explored journaling as a way to shape our thoughts and support our desires, and we learned wonderful breathing techniques to bring a sense of calm, balance and peace into our minds, hearts and lives.

One of the things I enjoyed most about Rach’s mindfulness session was learning more about gratitude; how it can help release negative thoughts and shift focus towards the goodness in life.

I’ve already started putting what I learned in Rach’s session into practise and I’ve noticed that it helps me feel calm, relaxed, focused and more positive.

The other thing I loved about Rach’s session was seeing her shine.

She’s an incredible woman, a brilliant presenter and such a caring, generous and knowledgeable woman. Hearing her share personal stories of how mindfulness has changed her life was so inspiring and has helped me re-commit to my own self-care and mindfulness practises.

After Rach’s session we took a break for lunch and it was so lovely to see all of our guests talking and getting to know each other.

We refuelled with delicious salads from Elizabeth Andrews Catering (my favourite was pumpkin and prosciutto) and after lunch we enjoyed the most scrumptious, luscious and mouth-watering raw treats, hand made with love by the amazing Georgie from Citizen Cacao. They not only looked incredible but they tasted amazing and I’m making a plan to visit her next time I’m in Melbourne to try the flavours I missed out on at ALIGNED!

After lunch it was goal rocking time and I took our gorgeous guests through the Rock Your Goals workshop.

My belief about goal setting is that it should be fun, aligned and feel great. It’s all about defining your dreams, claiming them and making them your own.

I also believe in releasing any goals that don’t belong to you or that are motivated by something outside yourself, because often we find ourselves with a bunch of goals that are all about pleasing other people or meeting the expectations or needs of others. So in the Rock Your Goals session our guests spent time figuring out what they want, why they want it, how it looks and what it means to them. We also worked through releasing any goals that didn’t fill them with passion, purpose, excitement and fire, because life’s too short to live someone else’s dreams!

One of the things I loved the most about the session was having time to move around the room and talk with each of our lovely guests one on one. It’s really special because it gives me a chance to learn more about each of the amazing women in the room and the goals they’re bringing to life. I always find myself feeling so inspired by the beautiful visions being created in every area of life and business.

We wrapped the afternoon with celebratory party poppers, hugs, warm farewells and lots of gratitude and I can honestly say it was an incredibly special day.

I feel like there aren’t enough words to convey how wonderful the day was.

Watching our guests share moments, smiles and laughs. Seeing them connect, share and encourage each other. Hearing them share stories, experiences and insights with each other. It was just pure magic.

There was so much love in that room – women with open hearts and open minds coming together to do something special for themselves; to give themselves time, space and permission to spend a day designing their future and delving into delicious mindfulness practises to support their self-care. It was so lovely.

Thinking back on the event as I write this post the overwhelming feelings for me are love and gratitude.

It took the heart and generosity of so many people to bring the ALIGNED event to life and I couldn’t be more grateful for the way the day turned out.

Our deepest and sincerest thanks go to each and every person, business and brand who helped make ALIGNED Melbourne such a wonderful event:

To The Windsor Workshop for creating such a warm, welcoming space and for your kindness and generosity. You made everything so easy for us and we appreciate you.

To the beautiful Casey from Tillda Flowers for the absolutely stunning blooms that lit up the room with colour and love. You brought all of my favourite flowers together and so generously sent our guests home with flowers from the day. Thank you.

Rock Your Goals The Podcast : Episode 26 – A Conversation with Amy Mackenzie

Amy Mackenzie

This week I’m sharing a call I had with the amazing Amy Mackenzie from Designing Her Life. Amy is a Life Coach, Writer and Speaker who helps female entrepreneurs, coaches and creatives design a life and a business they love.

We’d planned to record a podcast episode but ended up having a totally real and awesome discussion instead (which I hit record on part way through). At the end of our call we both said a great big ‘Wow!’. We knew that what we’d talked about was way better than a planned podcast and we decided to share our call with you.

This episode is an honest conversation between two friends talking about money, comparison, ditching perfectionism, showing up and the good, bad, ugly and amazing realities of business.

{F-bomb alert: if you’re offended by strong language, it might be best to skip today’s episode as Amy and I drop at least one f-bomb each in the context of talking passionately about what we believe in}

Rock Your Goals The Podcast : Episode 25 – A Tribute to Clare Greig

Clare Greig

A beautiful member of the coaching community I’m part of, Clare Greig, passed away on Monday and I feel deeply called to share about the tragic loss and celebrate the life of this amazing woman.

Warm, loving, caring, genuine, soulful, musical, graceful, strong, inspiring. Clare was an amazing woman, mother, coach, friend who left a little magic in the lives of everyone she met.

We’d crossed paths online and off through the Beautiful You Life Coaching Academy, and while we didn’t know each other that well, her death has hit me hard. Clare was pure light and love and joy.

I’ve been in a strange limbo land since I heard the news where I don’t know whether to just push on through or to shut the doors and cry, so I’ve been doing a bit of both.

But I woke up this morning to an email from Danielle LaPorte (if you haven’t checked out her wonderful stuff, here’s a link to her website) which said:
 

“What to do when things suck (hint: don’t gloss over it). When you’re feeling out of your soul zone and something crap is happening, accept that it’s happening. “Being” with the pain is the opposite of ignoring it. It means that instead of changing the subject, or eating a whole bag of chips, or glossing over the pain with fake gratitude, you take a minute (or a morning, or a solo weekend) to feel into how much it really sucks. This isn’t wallowing. This is curiosity, compassion and respect.”

 
And the clarity came rushing in.

What I need to do is take time to feel, accept, respect, acknowledge and let it suck that Clare is gone. Because it really, really, sucks.

So today, instead of sharing business tips, I wanted to honour Clare by talking about really living, because the death of someone so special cannot, and will not, be for nothing…
 

I lit a fire with the love you left behind.
