    How to Embrace Change: Using Nature as Your Guide

    How to Embrace Change: Using Nature as Your Guide

    In this week's episode, I'm going be talking about embracing change and getting inspiration from nature. All of us face change at some time in our lives, it can be a difficult experience for many people. We are creatures of habit and tend to resist anything that disrupts our routine. However, change is absolutely necessary for growth and development. Without change, we would remain stagnant and unable to move on or progress. 
    Change can take many forms, a major life event like job loss, breakup, divorce, or simply something like a change in routine. And many of us find it hard to cope and it can have a massive, profound effect on our lives. I believe getting inspiration from nature can really lessen its impact. As we understand that we move in cycles, as the seasons do, we also change and evolve.
     
    Here are the highlights:
    (02:13) The more we get in tune with nature's cycles, the more we become in tune with the divine flow of life.
    (02:36) We can learn from the wisdom of nature.
    (04:05) We can learn from the resilience of trees.
    (04:50) We connect with each element in the Awaken the Creatrix course.
    (04:59) Earth
    (05:11) Water
    (06:21) Fire
    (07:13) Wind
    (08:36) The changing of the seasons is a beautiful reminder of the impermanence of life.

    How the Spring Equinox can Inspire Creativity

    How the Spring Equinox can Inspire Creativity

    This week I'm going to be talking about the Spring Equinox. As a writer, I'm always on the lookout for inspiration and new ideas to fuel my creativity, and as I walked through the seasons and let them inspire my creativity, it has given me such a powerful connection to nature and its cycles on top of also doing moon journaling when it's New Moon and Full Moon.
    I've also got in touch with my own cycles of creativity and when I have high energy and low energy, which has really helped the creative process as well. 
    So what better time to harness the power of the universe than during the Spring Equinox? 
    In this episode, I will be exploring the symbolism of the spring Equinox and its connection to creativity, as well as giving some journaling prompts and creative writing exercises that can help you incorporate Spring Equinox themes into your writing. 
     
    Here are the highlights:
    (01:34) What is the Spring Equinox?
    (02:44) The Spring Equinox is traditionally a time of rebirth, renewal, and growth
    (04:22) The Spring Equinox can also serve as a powerful source of inspiration for your writing
    (06:40) What things really ignite your creativity?
    (07:36) Ideas to help with creative renewal
    (09:29) Book recommendations

    Why Women are Important Every Day of the Year

    Why Women are Important Every Day of the Year

    This week, I'm going to be talking about International Women's Day, but also why I think women should be celebrated every day of the year. I’m going to explain a bit about the history behind International Women's Day and really why we still need it, but also really the theme running behind it that I think women need to support each other every single day.
     
    Here are the highlights:
    (01:39) When International Women’s Day was first celebrated and why
    (02:58) It will take 100 years to close the global gender wage gap
    (03:55) Gender inequality has a negative impact on society as a whole
    (05:06) Women supporting women is a powerful force for change
    (06:03)  I believe this in-person meeting of women in circles is really powerful 
    (07:39)  I believe that starting with small grassroots organisations and circles is a great place to start

    The Power of Women’s Circles

    The Power of Women’s Circles

    Women and men have been circling and sitting in circles for thousands of years. Women in particular would come together during certain Luna and menstrual cycles throughout the month or for special events throughout the year. 
    Women's circles are a brilliant way to tap into the power of sisterhood and foster connection, and healing. And so this week I'm going to be talking about my own experience of creating circles.

     
    Here are the highlights:
    (02:17) Whatever happens in the circle, stays in the circle
    (03:48) It's been an honour and a gift to be able to host these spaces for people
    (05:37) When we bring women together in a circle beautiful things happen
    (10:56) It’s extremely important to bring back these traditions
    (11:57) You are just simply heard and held in that space
    (12:50) We are all goddesses, shining lights to each other, the world and ourselves
    (14:27) I'm all about collaboration and connection
