#133 - The Magic of Morning Pages Journaling
Hello and welcome to another episode!Years ago I read a wonderful book, The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. A beautiful book which teaches techniques and exercises to assist people in gaining self-confidence to harness their creative talents.One of the techniques recommended was ‘stream of consciousness writing’. Just dumping onto paper what-ever is in your head at any given time.Over time I evolved the practice - called ‘Morning Pages’ – and most mornings for the last decade or so I sit in a quiet place with a blank journal and pen, a cup of tea, a favourite candle lit nearby, and I write…It's become a valuable ritual for me and maybe it's something for you too?"In particular, when things are difficult, I find it so helpful."So much so that when people ask me how I managed to not get burned out as I started and grew kikki.K for over 20 years - working at a hectic pace - I tell them it's thanks to my ritual of Morning Pages journaling.I write whatever comes to mind. Literally just writing in the way that I think. Dumping thoughts on paper as they come... helping me clear my head and heart and set me up for the day ahead.Some of the key things you'll learn in this episode:* How to go about Morning Pages journaling.* How beneficial it has been for me as a morning ritual and why it might be for you too.* How to just keep your hand moving and write - as if no-one will ever read what you've written.* Not to worry about being logical or 'right' as you write.If you're interested then you can read more about it here...

#131 – What’s Holding You Back?
Hi there and welcome back to another episode!First, thank you so much for all the wonderful feedback from the last episode with the super inspiring Lisa Lemke. Much of the feedback was about Lisa’s down-to-earth approach to ‘making friends with death’ – which really resonated with so many of you. So, if you haven’t listened to it yet, here’s the link… (https://www.thedreamlifestore.com/blogs/podcasts/130-anything-is-possible-with-lisa-lemke)This week I want to talk about something that happens to all of us some time. Losing momentum and feeling a bit lost.Sometimes it’s just a temporary thing, but sometimes there’s some strong underlying pull or core issue that holds us back from making our dream life a reality.So, in this episode, I’m sharing some tips & approaches I use when I need to work through what’s holding me back. Some of the key things you'll learn in this episode:* My process for journaling to get unstuck. The best way I’ve found to work through things is by getting them down on paper. It can be as scrappy as you like, but there’s something about the tactile nature of putting pen to paper that I find super helpful – as I know many of you do too.* How having clarity about what you want from life is always the starting point - and how to take the first to getting clarity.* How reflective journaling - guided by various questions in each of your key life areas – will help you discover what it is that’s holding you back, so you can take action to move forward the way you want. I hope you enjoy this episode – and I’d LOVE to know what’s holding you back – so please let me know in our Dream Life Podcast Facebook group here (https://www.facebook.com/groups/yourdreamlifepodcast/about/) or in the comments section below.

Inspiring and motivating
I love this podcast and often re-listen to specific episodes when I need a motivational boost. Kristina has a wonderfully calm voice, a great manner with her guests and I love her refreshing approach to creating a ‘dream life’.
I love the uplifting inspiration KK wakes up in me!
I have been listening and sharing these podcasts for a few years now. A total fan of Kikki K stationary in London, I discovered the Happiness book in 2016. It has been my companion since then! This opened the door to a serious career change that by now is accomplished. Kristina, you do a wonderful job and we love you for that. Thank you! X x
A favourite podcast!
The podcast never fails to inspire - such a great mix of great guests, thought provoking and ALWAYS inspiring, thank you!!!!
