    Born in South Wales, UK, Amy Sinha, the youngest of three sisters, was submerged in m​usic from an early age, this also marked the beginning of her love of music and performance. Inspired by such a musical upbringing.

    Amy experienced some rare medical conditions in her early years, being declared as being one out of only 5 children like her in the U.K at the time. She had developed cataracts in both her eyes leaving her almost blind, and then diagnosed with a rare nerve condition which meant she was unable to feel hot, cold or superficial pain.

    Let's introduce Amy onto the show..

    #028 - Collaboration, Well-being Programme, Investing in yourself, Mind, Body & Soul

    Welcome back my lovely listeners to a special co-host episode where I am going to share with you a collaboration I have been working on with a beautiful soul called Marion, we have both been enjoying this process of building a inspiring and motivating programme from our own creative minds which we are both here to talk about today called The Ultimate Vitality & Well-being Programme, here is a brief description of what’s to be expected:
    Are you feeling flat, demotivated, lacking in energy or feel stuck and down with life?
    Feeling anxious, stressed or low in mood? Within this programme you will increase your sense of spirituality, feel energised and have a zest for life.
    In this Co-host episode myself and Marion are going to talk about the structure/takeaway advice/the outcome you will benefit from this programme and many other aspects of this programme, Are, you ready to invest in you?
    So, let’s explain to anyone who is looking for a holistic way of life
    If you are ready to work with us, over a three - month period, your life will change and you will discover a new you: 
    Imagine, getting out of bed each and every day with a sense of purpose, looking forward to the challenges ahead. This can be you, if you are willing to commit to this programme for three months. 
    We offer you 6 modules, three of which are scheduled sessions tailored to your individual needs. These sessions are scheduled with Marion a qualified psychotherapist, with eleven years experience of motivating and helping people become the best that they can be.
    Three further recorded sessions which Nicola has created and also a virtual live meetup with her prior to starting the modules, she has over 10 years experience as a spiritual lifestyle coach and therapist.
    The mixture of both live and recorded sessions are the perfect blend to support you in the process of reaching your goals.
    What does well-being mean to us? We describe this.
    As well-being covers all aspects of the person, what factors can lead to emotional, physical & spiritual problems? We describe this.
    Think about what aspect of your well-being you would like to work on. 
    During our spiritual module we talk about the conscious and the subconscious mind. 
    Marion talks about the difference between the two and why it can sometimes be difficult to change habits and beliefs.
    Nicola will introduce EFT and to offer a tip - Emotional freedom technique (EFT), which people often refer to as EFT tapping, is an alternative therapy for anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and some other conditions.
    It involves tapping specific points on the body, primarily on the head and the face, in a particular sequence. While doing this, the person focuses on the issue that they wish to treat.
    In this theory, blocks or imbalances in the flow of energy lead to ill health. According to EFT advocates, tapping on these meridian points with the fingertips restores the balance of energy to resolve physical and emotional issues.
     As this technique requires a certain way of practising, there is a more in-depth version explained and demonstrated by myself within the Mind, Body & Soul modules
    The Ultimate Vitality & Well-being Programme will to be available early November 2021 and there will be a promotional offer, more on this to come soon, in future episodes and online.

    #027 Solo Episode, Imposter Syndrome, Perfectionist, Super woman/man, Natural Genius, Soloist, Expert

    How perfectionist can manifest by their thoughts.
    Your own self-presentation…how you speak, dress, your lifestyle choices, your body weight and shape. Throw in the heightened scrutiny of social media to this mix and it’s easy to see how perfectionism can take over in a bid to maintain a perfect image.Manifesting Super woman/man thoughts?
    Putting your thoughts to the test is a great way to see if others really expect that of you, or if it's what you think others expect of you 
    Does this apply to you if you feel your in the super woman/man category?
    Do you feel like you haven’t earned your title? 
    Does the Natural Genius resonate with you?
    Natural genius judge their competence based on ease and speed rather than efforts, let me explain this, they take a long time to master something, they set their internal bar impossibly high, just like the perfectionists.
    The Soloist feels so independent that can sometimes refuse assistance so that you can improve your worth, 
    If you’re not sure if this Imposter Syndrome resonates with you ask yourself.
     Do you feel you have to accomplish things on your own? Do you look at requests in terms of a requirement if it were for example a project youre doing, rather than your needs as a person?
     Here’s the Expert Imposter Syndrome who measures their competence based on ‘what’ and ‘how much’ they know or can do. They believe they will never be enough.
     Does this resonate with you? 
     I believe there’s always something new to learn, as this is what keeps our mind expanding into great awareness, however by continually seeking out more information, if you’re not aware of this can actually be a form of procrastination. 
     Try this, start learning when it's required to, then move into action, right now take these opportunities to start accepting and embracing your capabilities. 
     I really hope this topic has given you insight on what Imposter Syndrome can look and feel like, as for me personally I have come to realise that I am a piece of every one of these at some time or another in my life, but the one that stands out for me is the perfectionist, I’m working on this, I would love to hear yours, just before you go share this episode with anyone you know and follow me over on Instagram to see more mindfulness and well-being topics which I love talking about, I have also put together a blog post on this topic if you’re interested in reading it, all of my contact details are in the show notes of this episode until next time my lovely listener’s

    #025 - LoA, Vibrational Work, Positive Thoughts

    #025 - LoA, Vibrational Work, Positive Thoughts

    Hello my lovely listeners and welcome back to this weeks Solo Episode with your host, this week I want to talk about 'The Law of Attraction' vibration energy, positive thoughts bringing positive action into the world.

    If you take a moment to sit with your thoughts, you might realise how many negative thoughts cross your mind; how much your thoughts are racing, thinking about your never-ending to-do list, worrying about this person or that thing you have to do.

    When we have these negatively framed thoughts, they weigh us down. They drag our energy and we feel heavier. These negative thoughts, then, have a heavy vibration.

    So, if vibration is our state of being, it’s tangible when we’re feeling low. Depressive thoughts have a low vibration, which in turn make us feel heavy and lethargic, bringing our overall vibration down. However, if we’re happy, we feel lighter, energised and spirited.

    Want to learn more about how our thoughts serve us? head on over to my recent blog post:  https://nicolapaull.com/how-can-your-thoughts-serve-you/
