Mindfulness Retreat

We are inviting you to join us on the One Day Mindfulness Retreat at the Xaverian Centre in Preston on Sunday 30th June. It’s a spacious venue, so bring the family or a friend. Take some time out to relax, clear the mind and really get into the present moment. We’ll share food, easy Tai-Chi and mindful movement in a tranquil space. All details are below as well as the latest blog on the benefits of mindfulness and the great practice of living in the present moment.

Why Mindfulness?

Mindfulness has been proven to counteract stress, depression and anxiety, boost your health and increase happiness. Join us in experiencing mindfulness practices to help you reset your mind to its natural relaxed, creative state.

That Busy Human Mind

It has been proven that TRUE happiness depends on the state of our minds and our consciousness, not external factors such as money, materialistic items, jobs or other people.

The human mind tends to create a continuous stream of senseless thoughts. We think about what has happened in the past, what will happen in the future and what might not ever happen at all. This mental state where the mind wanders, has been called our mind’s “default mode of operation”.

Studies have also showed that those whose minds were focused on the present moment (being MINDFUL), were significantly happier than those who were operating in “default mode”.

It’s not easy, but the practice is surprisingly simple. Join us in creating peace, happiness and good health.

Emotions are Levels of Consciousness

Consciousness is your Blueprint for Health and Success

In last month’s blog, we explored 11 Mysterious Facts About Your Emotions. We uncovered, among other, that emotions have vibrations and that your level of emotions, as indicated on this vibrational scale above, is an indicator of your level of consciousness at the time. This month we want to explore further this link between levels of emotions and your default experiences in life.

The Link Between Emotions, Health and Success

Emotions have vibrations: We have all walked into a room and sensed the vibes. You can feel the tension or the lightness. Some, like stress and fear, are dense and low in vibration. Others, like love and joy, are light and high in vibrations. Higher vibrations are naturally more uplifting and expansive.

It’s a human experience: It is natural and human to experience the whole range of emotions. One day you may feel optimistic and positive, and then comes a day when you feel low for no apparent reason. Be willing to experience the whole range of human emotions. Avoid resisting the lower emotions of anger, sadness, fear, hurt or guilt. What you resist persists. Avoid dwelling there for too long. Flow through the emotional experience with awareness and intention to move back up into positive emotions again. Releasing resistance and taking responsibility, begin to tip us into positive emotions. Practicing acceptance, gratitude and forgiveness helps us to transcend the ego and become more of our true higher selves. Clarity brings wisdom and previously evasive emotions of unconditional love, joy and peace are experienced again as our true natural state. Youthfulness and good health – also our natural state – returns.

It’s an indicator of consciousness: Emotional levels are levels of consciousness. Where you dwell in emotions, you dwell in consciousness. Consciousness (not DNA) controls the health in your body as well as your levels of success in achieving positive outcomes. Consciousness changes and activates your DNA, allowing more of your resources and potential to be tapped.

Qualities of Consciousness

In the Negative: As is evident from the emotional scale above, if you dwell in lower emotions too long, you can experience apathy and your energy becomes more constrictive and solid. You can’t make decisions because you resist change. You want things to stay the same. You want to BE right. You take life too seriously and are motivated by safety and security. Stress and fear makes you ill. You feel like a victim of circumstances, as though life is unfair. You can drag people down with you. People around you can find you draining.  People at these levels tend to be risk-averse. They remember past failures and generate a lot of ‘what if’ type mental chatter. Ironically, what we put our intention on, grows in possibility and prevalence.

In the Positive: Higher up in positive emotions of willingness, gratitude, excitement and enthusiasm, there’s more movement and flow in energy. You become more expansive and you have more space to create. You are driven (not by money) by a vision and purpose. You feel energised and healthy. Its easier to come into your own power, to be creative and to manifest positive outcomes. Abundance is a natural outflow. People who cultivate positivity and dwell more higher up the emotional levels, are playful and happy. They don’t take life too seriously. They take full responsibility for their own experiences. They have a contagious enthusiasm. They have strong positive intentions. They want to DO right. They feel inspired and serve as an inspiration to others.

In Practice

Your health and success depends on your willingness to:

  1. Experience the whole range of human emotions – rather than resist them
  2. Embrace and flow with the emotions you experience – rather than trying to control them
  3. Learn and let go and intentionally move up the emotional scale
  4. Practice forgiveness, gratitude, willingness, enthusiasm and positive intention
  5. Keep creating to expand (e.g. your business or career or personal empowerment)
  6. Remain light-hearted and playful
  7. Remain vision and purpose driven – abundance will flow by itself.


Sometimes we can do with a little help. I can highly recommend Time Line Therapy™ for a complete clear-out of negative emotions and limiting beliefs. It’s transformational and rapidly speeds up your personal evolution. Time Line Therapy™, facilitates gentle, yet powerful processes to enable you to heal emotions of the past. Emotions of anger, sadness, fear, hurt and guilt keep us attached to the past and as we heal these emotions, we set ourselves free from the past; free to create a new magnificent life.

As a great self-help tool, you can listen to a Mindfulness Healing Meditation listed under our Products page. It is an inner journey that you can make for your own emotional healing as often as you want to release emotions and achieve lightness.
