loveyourland

I am teaching a yoga class this evening at the @boomerangbags warehouse at 7pm (12/17A Ern Harley Drive, Burleigh). Our focus will be on the Ajna (third eye) Chakra, and working on our intuitive mind. There will be blindfolds that are optional 🙈 Your investment is $10 with a % going towards the @boomerangbags initiative - which is working towards ending plastic on the Gold Coast to save the places we love! 🌊🐋💙

I came upon a mystical scene with silent alters seated at bases of singing trees– is this a place to whisper prayers of worship or mourning? Is this a place of desolation or of life? What sort of moments have been lived here? I lived a moment of curiosity and in that became joined to its history of moments. I suppose its a place we each stand, within the history of the land. #learnyourland #loveyourland (at Samoeng)

“YOUR heart is the light of this world. Don’t cover it with your mind.” ~ Mooji


Be courageous. Don’t give in to fear. Act from the heart. Do things that make you truly happy. Learn to say no to the things that don’t. Love hard. Laugh. Be honest. Smile at strangers. Follow Dolphins down the coast. Look at things from different perspectives every now and then. Heal yourself. Heal others. Protect your planet. Meditate. Shine your light. 💙🐬💙

True that Gandhi.


I am seeing a lot of anger circulating my news feed regarding environmental and political issues… It makes me a little upset now seeing very good, passionate and powerful people succumbing to their anger, and allowing it to rule their thoughts and words… Yes there is a lot of negative things happening in the world and yes, Its human to feel angry sometimes… But we need to catch ourselves.

Everything is energy and vibrations right…? So if we are sending negative thought waves or verbalising/ writing our angry thoughts on a public forum… Isn’t that adding to the negativity?


Of course it’s the right thing to do to speak up for injustice and educate others that are not aware of issues.. But when looking back on history, bad mouthing others and retaliating has never solved anything. We need calm, rational, solution based arguments and points to be made so that we can solve the mess the world is in, as ONE mob… Enough with the division and judgements..

As my favourite poet Rumi says: “Raise your words, not your voice. It’s rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” ❤️

“Today’s society is waiting for selfless, spiritually enlightened, well balanced leaders to guide them in how to live happily here and hereafter. Such leaders of reformers will not come from outside our society. They have to be born, raised and trained right in our own society. We are the ones to become our own guides, our own leaders, and we are the ones to enlighten our own lives. Get up, my friends, arise: attain knowledge, and dedicate your life to the service of your fellow beings.” ~ Swami Rama

How is your #plasticfreejuly going?! I’m realising how much plastic humans use. It has been a struggle in some areas (brushing my teeth with homemade toothpaste 😩) but other areas have been great! Most cafes are quite open to me bringing my own container, lots of them saying how much better the food looks in your own bowl! And, It weighs next to nothing to carry my own cutlery, container, coffee cup and drink bottle. I’m learning so much about alternatives, and am surprised at how easy they are once you make them a habit.


Why do we need to be more conscious of the plastic consumption?

This photo is of the plastic that has been found in the bellies of sea birds and turtles at the Australian Sea Bird Rescue in Ballina. This amount of plastic in their bellies leads to a host of issues - starvation, exhaustion, floaters syndrome, poisoning from the toxins found on plastic, and death.

Good news is: you can change this! Take 3 bits of rubbish with you everytime you leave the beach, don’t litter, be conscious of your plastic consumption and educate others. Lead by example. 🙏

I can’t stop giggling after trying to communicate with the beautiful ladies at sushi that I am doing @plasticfreejuly and did not want my sushi in a plastic take away container with plastic soy sauce and chopsticks wrapped in plastic all in a plastic bag. We got there in the end. Bless them. Day 2 of #plasticfreejuly is going well! I just need to learn how to say #notosingleuseplastic in Japanese!
