78. MEDITATION - Quietening the mind is a myth!
I honestly believe that the number 1 most important skill everyone should learn is to MASTER THE MIND!
Because if you don't master your mind, you will just be ignoring your thoughts, and not dealing with your unwanted thoughts effectively is the same as ignoring them. That's the path to stress, burnout, and depression.
Ultimately, mastering the inner game and taming those thoughts isn't really about quieting the mind at all. It's not about what you think, it’s about how you respond to the thoughts you have.
The solution to an overactive mind is not to try to stop those thoughts, the solution is to learn how to respond to those thoughts the right way. Basically, when unwanted thoughts come, you have 3 options and that is what I talk about in this episode.
I also take you through a 10-minute guided meditation where you will be trained to not just witness your thoughts, but actively detach from them. The aim of this meditation is to bring you inwards and to increase your focus and attention.
There is an important misunderstanding about meditation and one of the main misconceptions is that you are supposed to stop all thinking and thought.
Thoughts are constantly cycling through at all times, and we don’t zoom into each and every one, our brain will filter many thoughts throughout the day, they will just come and go, what this means is that we are choosing on some level, when and how we interact with our many passing thoughts.
If we are feeling overwhelmed or needing more peace, meditation can create the space for us to simply witness our thoughts, not stop but slow our thinking and come more fully into the present moment. Understanding how to become a witness to our thoughts can be a bit challenging for us, and today's meditation will help you better understand this concept.

76. This phenomenon is stopping you from reaching your full potential
This phenomenon can leave you feeling overwhelmed and when it brings up feelings of anxiety, depression, and self-doubt, you may need a helping hand through it.
The voice in your head gets the loudest when the desired goal is close. All the effort that has been put into a particular project suddenly gets thrown overboard. This happens especially when the change and growth that come with the goal are directly knocking on the door.
Along with these internalised thoughts and feelings, there are external signs you may recognise in yourself or others. These include:
• Minimizing positive feedback
• Afraid of being outed as a fraud
• Feeling unworthy of success
• Not trying for fear of failure
• Distrust of others
• Blaming accomplishments on luck
As you can see, the phenomenon can show up in many ways and can have a major effect on decisions and actions.
75. Are you consciously or unconsciously creating your reality?
Are you consciously or unconsciously creating your reality?
Today I give you tips on how you can consciously create your reality and how to recognise when you are stuck in that unconscious pattern of negative thinking and how you can use your mental and emotional energy to your advantage.
I also talk about how you can tell what your predominant unconscious thought are.
Every single day, whether you are aware of it or not you are creating your reality. The goal is to start acting as a conscious creator of your reality. When you are unconsciously creating your reality, you assume everything that is happening to you is out of your hands. You might assume the challenges affecting your life can’t be changed.
It’s so important to remember that our unconscious thoughts are so powerful and are constantly being projected into the Universe. The more repetitive the thought, the stronger the ability to manifest it becomes, and when thoughts are charged with emotion they manifest more quickly. Emotions are a powerful energy field since they are centered in the heart.
You are a magnet to your predominant thoughts and habits, whether positive or negative. Conscious creators know exactly how to turn anything that seems negative into opportunity.
So if you want to know if you are consciously or unconsciously creating your reality this is an episode you must not miss.

73. The 2 deep rooted beliefs that will hold you back from manifesting anything you've ever wanted
“I AM ENOUGH” 3 very powerful words❗️
I didn’t understand the power of these 3 simple words until I did an exercise my coach asked me to do ages ago, to write on my mirror in lipstick “I AM ENOUGH” and I didn’t as I thought it was silly and I felt silly doing it and then thought to myself what if someone sees it, what will they think. So I just used it as an affirmation instead, which has been nowhere near as powerful as the shift I got from writing this in my mirror yesterday.
Sundays are my self-love and self-care days, where I consciously have practices that I will do, even though every day is self-love and self-care, Sundays are when I do it consciously and make time out and 'ME TIME'. Even I get knocked out of my peace from time to time (even with all my coaching tools and techniques in my back pocket) and start questioning LIFE! and why obstacles and challenges seem so insurmountable sometimes, my takeaway from them each time is what have I learned and how have I grown from this.
We all have self-destructive thoughts 🤯 that don’t serve us and hold us back from reaching our highest potential. A regular one I see and hear in most of my clients is “I’M NOT GOOD ENOUGH” or "I'M NOT WORTHY" they may not use those exact words, but the language they are using around these deep-rooted beliefs are "I'm not good enough", "I'm not worthy" stems from something more deep-rooted in the unconscious mind that they are not even aware of.
I am so grateful for my coach to teach me this simple yet powerful practice which instantly empowered me and shifted something inside me and does now every time I look at my mirror.
Will you try it?
Such great learnings in every episode!
This is such a great podcast, THANK YOU! Sukie, I’m literally addicted to your meditations. So much great learning and information in the episodes. The chakra series was amazing and my favourite and I learnt so much not just about the chakras but also about myself and invisible blocks that I didn’t even know I had and were controlling so many things in my life and learnt about why I would react to certain situations the way I did. I highly recommend the 7 week chakra series, the meditations were powerful and I could feel an instant raise in my vibration and a boost in mood when I finished them. I didn’t even know anything about the chakras but now know just how important they are! I’m on my way to becoming a conscious woman! and being more mindful of my energy system daily.
So incredibly valuable ❤️
I feel I am being coached by Sukie and that she is speaking to me and have applied so many of the strategies she teaches, she has has really helped me on my spiritual journey. I always struggled with limiting beliefs and believing in myself, I find these episodes so uplifting for changing my mindset. Always so many gems to take away and implement straight away.
Love love love this podcast, her meditations are amazing!! and take me on a beautiful journey, Sukie has such a soft and soothing voice. Can’t wait for the next episode!
