LIVE LIGHT. LIVE LARGE
Hello – what brings you here?
If we haven’t yet met and you are here for the first time, well …what an interesting time it is to be connecting.
HELLO! It is November 2021 at the time of writing this, on a train headed to a beloved island called Iona. Well, 2 trains, a ferry, a bus ride and another ferry to get there to be precise! It’s off the west coast of Scotland. I have been living #LocationFree around the world for 6 years now and have started actively looking for a couple of places to create a base. Iona has been a vital part of my transition process this past 2 years. I took some much-needed time off last year and embarked on an intentional pilgrimage (aka personal retreat) to that wee, remote Scottish Isle and shed many, many skins in the process.
This is where I had to sit for a full year.
The sparkle of possibility exists in the gap between NO LONGER …and …NOT YET. You can read my heartfelt sharing of that powerful retreat time here to get a sense of the depth of work I do and what exactly I processed on this Sacred Isle of Iona. I deeply respect the real power that emerges from letting go: whether the physical, body, emotional, mental or spiritual realms. The intense ritual of letting go and actively embracing closure creates the next step – the intense and real space – what I called The Gap. That gap exists for a reason, as it’s a vital pause before you can decide what to ‘call’ into your life next. My experience, both professionally, in business and simply in the way I have embraced this journey called life, might just be the tonic, support and compassionate nudge you need at this time in your life?
I support women on the threshold of making courageous leaps – and typically you are in and around your 50’s. It’s a magnifiscent milestone to reach and cross in our feminine journey. I am called to help you face and embrace your life, challenges, dilemmas and activate your dreams to create the next delicious chapter in your life.
I can support you to find a sense of inner pride again. Self-love. Self-care. Energy expended in the right places for the right reasons.
To get closure, pause, and then re-dream your future. I have helped clients, for the past 18 years, to be bold and brave and say YES to the right things. To cross those pivotal thresholds and take that leap. That may mean various things – walking away from a partner, yes to a new a job, leaving a country, facing retrenchment, selling a home, saying no – or any other manner of things that involve change, moving on, or a massive upheaval and rift in identity. Menopause,new countries, just knowing there is so much more to life.
It is also about finding your way to sit in the sticky middle, the gap, the unknown.
That potentially dreadful and uncomfortable place we do not find it easy to sit with. We want to chase after the hints of peace floating about the periphery rather than SIT still. for as long as it takes.
The next step might involve getting stuck into what really matters: finally writing your book or blog, starting that business or taking that world trip. Perhaps do what I have done for the past 6 years and live #LocationFree globally, or to speak on stage, start your family, finally stand up for yourself, accept that invitation to the dinner party upstairs, become that artist that resides in your heart or go on that date 🙂
To just live your life! With pride, delight and a sense of purpose.
Step into your power & shine your light.
I am known as the QUICKSHIFT DEVA – yes that’s Deva with an E which means “shining one” – and it fills my heart to support you to “LIVE LIGHT, LIVE LARGE”.
You might be drawn to work or RETREAT with me if you are:
* At a huge crossroads in your life.
* What used to work no longer does, but you’re not yet sure what is next.
* Needing to take some TIME OUT and find a way to listen to your heart again?
* Wish to honor the call deep inside you – the one that usually gets pushed swiftly to the bottom of the priority list?
We are terrified of that GAP after NO LONGER, aren’t we?
If you are still reading, then chances are you are close to 50, a little bored, stressed and KNOW in your heart there is more to life. But you are too stuck, scared or exhausted to do anything about it. Sound familiar?
Maybe it’s all feeling a bit BLEH and overwhelming to be honest?
I am becoming more and more fascinated with the power of creating shifts through the counter-intuitive idea of slowing down, detoxing (both body and tech) and pressing PAUSE in order to PONDER what truly matters. Then from that place of mindful stillness, you can weave your way back into your life and activate your dreams.
I offer VIP private retreats (bespoke face-to-face on Iona soon or online if necessary), group retreats, writing residencies, spend a lot of my time writing and mentoring women hovering around the powerful 50’s transition. I used to work extensively in the online space running groups, masterminds and coaching for the past 18 years, but I am zigging while everyone else is zagging. Yes, I get the irony in these times where working with groups online seems to be all anyone can talk about – but I’ve shifted into my next phase and chapter of work! I prefer to offer more of myself and work heart to heart, hand to hand and face to face.
Sound like just what you need right now?
I am known to yackety yack quite a lot on TV, radio and podcasts and share my “expert” opinion in Magazines or my blog. You can see some of those on the media hub page, watch my videos on my YouTube Channel or social media links above. Mostly I love traveling around the world writing, watching sunrises, swimming, dancing, running retreats, and looking for heart-shaped rocks.
Imagine if you joined me somewhere to shift your life?!
