In our experience of life and working with clients in our clinics, it is clear that many of us hold the common belief (particularly for women), that putting ourselves first is a selfish act, yet this is in reality the total opposite to the truth.
As we draw close to the end of yet another year, we would like to share with you something that we are ongoinly working on ourselves, which is building a body of love. Why would we want to do this? Because when we build love in our body, we feel more connected with ourselves, with others, we feel more at ease with life in general, in purpose and also because it feels lovely.
Let’s face it, for many of us who live a city life, it is hectic. Sydney is a fast-paced city and there is what seems to be an endless array of things to be done, people to see, places to get to. The feeling that ‘there is much to do’ can leave us feeling overwhelmed, tired and tense in our bodies. We can often feel this is our ‘normal’ and part and parcel of life, but really, is this normal and do we have to feel this way, or could there be another way?
In our last two articles we have explored on the topic of Love. Here we continue with Part 3 our final article presenting What is Love.
Let’s pick this article up where we left with the question of
So how do we hold ourselves in love?
In our last article we began the exploration on the Topic of Love. Here we continue with Part 2 and our upcoming Part 3 will conclude this trilogy.

So let’s pick up from where we left off from Part 1 with the pondering of…
So could it be that to find true love our first port of call is our reconnection back to self?
Love – we all want it, we all crave it. But what actually is love? This is a big question where our feelings and thoughts around love often come loaded by our past experiences in addition to what we have been told love is. In this article we would like to go there and explore what love is.
We are all in relationship all of the time – nothing new shared here. Regardless of whether we are single or in a partnership, we are all always in relationship – with friends, work colleagues, people who serve us at the shops, those we meet socially etc.
But what are relationships for? What is their offering?
The beginning of the year is often a time used for reflection and an opportunity to implement change, or make new and more self-loving choices for the year ahead.
In this article we would like to take a moment to reflect upon the topic of reactions and delve a little deeper into how reacting can hold us back from living a healthy and joy filled life.
In this article we explore the topic of the true purpose of family. As shocking as it is, a significant proportion of our health and lack of wellbeing issues are associated with or can be traced back to our experiences with family.
We all have a relationship with the concept of family, afterall we are born into one of some sorts. Our experience of what family is and feels like and the responses that each of us has with and towards it varies – from those who remain super close to their birth family as they grow up to others choosing to move away from this intimacy or ease once they hit adulthood. Then comes the stage of life where we go on to develop our own families through partnerships, marriage, children, friends or pets.
For many of us, the start of a new year usually marks the beginning of a new cycle. It is often a time of reflection on the various events that have happened in the prior year, what we have achieved or not, and the setting for new resolutions based on what we would like for the year to come. What we would like to share in this article is perhaps a different way to view and use the new year period.
