Why You Don't have to "Try" - You are Perfect just as you Are!

Each and every one of us is beautiful and magnificent exactly as we are. By simply being our true selves our unique and exquisite light shines. Yet, so many of us are disconnected from this truth, we feel inadequate and less than. So many of us want to fit in, to be like others, to be accepted.

Yet what matters is being who we truly are and expressing our unique authentic beingness - how joyful and liberating is that! In the world we currently live in being our true selves is not always easy or straightforward...

Trinity's Cardamom & Ginger Chai Recipe

Energetically speaking, when it comes to chai (tea), there's nothing quite like making your own! I am not JUST making a cup of chai. To me it is a spiritual adventure. As I am sure you know, spirituality is in everything. It's in the way I feel connected with each spice; feeling the energy inspire my senses - the aroma, the taste, the unique soulful healing properties. It's in the way that each ingredient 'speaks' to me, strengthening the life force that flows through my whole being.

All that from a cup of chai? YES!

Sweet Potato & Coconut "Soul Food Special" Soup

This tastes divine! I've made so many different versions of this soup over the years at home, for friends or whist catering on retreat. It is perhaps the one meal I eat more than anything else. Anyone who's been on an Openhand retreat that I've catered for will recognise this one! It's the 'Soul Food Special'! This soup originally appeared in my first book Trinity's Conscious Kitchen, although I've never made the same twice. It does however, always contain my signature ingredients coconut, tomato and sweet potato.

It's fast, it's easy and it's soul-stirringly de-e-e-lectable.

Travel Tips for Maintaining a High Vibe...Particularly for Sensitives

Travel can enrich the soul and broaden horizons, opening our hearts and minds to new possibilities. In today’s busy world however, it can be somewhat overwhelming for those of us who are empaths (or highly sensitive) as we sense and feel everything around us, within ourselves. If your senses are on over-drive and your awareness is heightened, busy cities, chaotic airports and so much new stuff can send a highly sensitive person into meltdown.

How do you best deal with that?...

Finding Freedom Through Life's Struggles..."You Live, You Learn"

Our souls are inherently free and joyful, our life purpose is to express our authentic beingness. As well as experiencing the joy and freedom within life, our soul wants to take us to all those challenging places where we get stuck and tight. Why? So that we can work through and be free of our old patterns, conditioning and karma, that which no longer serves us and prevents us from being free.

These things cause us to forget who we truly are and in working to release them, we return to lightness,
liberation and joy again.

How to find serenity in the storm in a chaotic world

Just breathe!
Sometimes it’s the simple things that can make our day a whole lot better. Often the answer is so obvious, it has been staring us in the face the whole time. Finding instant calm in our hectic, challenging or busy lives can be so simple if we allow it. It’s all about the breath. So simple in fact, that most of us don’t even give the breath a second thought. It happens automatically, so why would we even need to?

The breath is a gift. It is pure Life Force, Mana, Chi. It sustains us. It inspires us into being. Breath can transform a hectic, challenging day into a haven of peace and calm.

Being of service to others and the world can bring immense joy and is of amazing value - it's massively inspiring and fulfilling. When offering service, maintaining healthy boundaries is essential if we are to remain aligned and in balance.

In this article we explore what it means to have healthy boundaries and how this enhances our lives and that of those around us...

We the People...Unite in The Field

We are not American, European, Australian, Canadian, African, Syrian or any other minimalising label states care to stick on us. We are people of the Universe - children of "God". And we each have a right to connect with "God" however we feel to. When humanity came to this planet, there were no borders - like any other creature, we were free to go where we chose.
