Wisdom from a furry friend

A humorous lesson in karma & the futility of anger

July/August held two eclipses with one more on its way. As the moon eclipses the sun we are in shadow, a chance to look at the shadow self.  Our conscious mind is eclipsed and we can experience our subconscious selves, providing us with the opportunity to go inward and evaluate the self with truth and honesty.  Not to judge ourselves but in order to liberate the aspects of ‘self’ held in past experiences.

For me I was working through some past childhood disappointment and anger around what I felt ‘should’ve’ happened.  I knew it was time to let it go but a deep ‘shadow’ part of me wanted my pain to be validated and for the other person I had felt disappointed by to acknowledge how they had a … Read More



Being Present in this crazy world – the Physical & Spiritual ‘How’ and ‘Why’

Posted on 25th March, by admin in Talia's Blog.

Life is increasingly sped up in this crazy, busy world.  In every moment there is the opportunity to fit ‘just one more’ thing in. There always seems to be more to do.  I find this in my own life, especially now as I add teenage Uber driver to my CV.  So how is being present going to help, and why?

Firstly let me differentiate, being present doesn’t necessarily mean making a clean swipe of life’s tasks and abandoning all else to sit and ‘om’ in a corner.  Although I’m sure that may work for some!

Being present simply means being in the moment, whatever activity you find yourself undertaking.

Are you driving the car, hanging washing or completing that assignment with your mind already many steps ahead of you, thinking about the other million tasks you may have to do?   … Read More



How to weather intense emotions

You are not your emotions- How to separate the ‘you’ from ‘your experience’


Interesting fact for you – we operate from the subconscious mind over 90% of the time.  This means our thoughts and emotions often ‘happen to us’ or ‘influence us’ to act or feel a certain way, without us really knowing why, or without much awareness/consciousness in our behaviour.  This can lead to feeling dissatisfied with life  and often feeling ‘victim’ to it.  

Without looking at or into our beliefs,  our behaviour patterns and our sub conscious influences, it can be an enormous & lengthy challenge to create or sustain any change.  This can be frustrating.  It also can lead us to ‘identify’ with our emotions or experiences, seeing them as part of ourselves and in doing this we ‘forget’ our true nature.  

We become what we feel.

How to Tap into the Healing power of Vulnerability.

Posted on 20th February, by admin in Talia's Blog.

Most of us find it pretty challenging to be vulnerable.  It can feel like we are opening ourselves up for judgement and ridicule so we put a filter up to protect ourselves.

Being vulnerable shares a relationship with our heart chakra.  When we feel exposed we can close our heart chakra again for protection.  This judgement on what we are experiencing creates an open/close dynamic within the heart.  Feel safe = open.  Feel unsafe = closed.

View your experiences without Judging them as either ‘Good’ or ‘Bad‘

The challenge that comes with allowing ourselves to be vulnerable is to be able to view our experiences without judgement.  To feel our emotions.  This may sound pretty basic but how many of us only feel what feels comfortable?  We’re only human right?  Sometimes it’s not comfortable to feel … Read More
