Live Mindfully & Join The Evolution
I am a woman
I am a mother
I am a deeply concerned human
But first and foremost, I am a humanWaking
I am on a journey. The literal distance is not particularly far. Yet, at times, it has felt like miles and only recently am I beginning to sense that I’m truly getting closer. It’s an evolution from my head, to my heart.
We’ve become so deeply disconnected from our relationship with our planet Earth. The lifeblood of our very existence and we cannot survive without her. Yet despite this, we relentlessly destroy and exploit her natural resources. From air, water and soil to wildlife and forests.
She does not need us. We need her. So it’s time to wake up.
If we cannot connect to ourselves, how can we have the awareness to connect to all of life around us?
I am a deeply passionate lover of all aspects of life, and so I have found myself constantly in search of more gentle ways in which my family and I can live in our world.
In becoming more conscious of our actions, we find ourselves making new choices. Which can quide us into becoming more active contributors towards positive change.
It’s a waking up of body, heart, mind and spirit. I call this humanWaking.
Ultimately, each one of us is an integral thread in the web of life. So, what we do and how we live within it really does matter. So becoming a more conscious human being is a process of waking up and remembering.
If I begin to take responsibility for my actions each and every day, I believe that I can begin to make a difference. One step. One action. One person at a time.
My unfolding journey has created a desire to share my experiences. But not as an expert, or anything other than as a fellow humanWaking.
There are so many constant “wake-ups”. I found the basics, in terms of what and how I consume, to be a powerful and effective starting point. This in turn initiates giving back.
How and what we consume, from our thoughts, emotions, activities, experiences, purchases and, critically, our food, all play a vital role and have an impact on our planet.
Why The Evolution?
Because each one of us is interconnected with all of life. What is out of balance in one, is out of balance in the collective. This is something we have forgotten. And, in forgetting who we are, so we have forgotten who we are in relation to everything else.
I founded and ran a successful art consultancy for 15 years, and began to really question my life and greater purpose. I started challenging my behaviour patterns and belief systems. From there I was drawn to start taking active steps in my life that would contribute towards a positive, abundant, healthy Earth and future.
I set out on an inner journey to heal me. I am a mother to two young girls, and it is an enormous driving force. It has led me on a journey to connect to myself, to our magnificent planet, holistic living, and real food. Food that is nutritious, activating and free of chemicals.
This is a lifetime evolution, but one which my whole family is stepping into.
So Where Do You Begin?
In our frenetic, fast-paced daily experience, we are often left with the feeling that many things in our lives are out of our control. However, when it comes to what we put in our bodies, we can control what we eat and drink. This decision starts in making a choice about where we shop and what we put in our trolleys. What we put in our fridges and cupboards is the food our families are going to eat.
It is as simple as that.
As a result of being more mindful about what we as a family eat, I’ve been able to learn so much about nutrition (the information is literally at our fingertips) – as well as change how we consume, by using environmentally friendly detergents for our home, undertaking waste management and actively recycling.
My research into food has contributed tremendously towards my growth in consciousness and, as a result, I was inspired to create real, whole food recipes for on-the-go snacks that are genuinely nutritious.
And so my exciting and life-affirming experience of humanWaking continues. And my greatest desire is to inspire you. To help you to begin to explore the humanWaking within you, and join the evolution.
