Open Your Heart, Come Alive and Thrive

After 25 years of exploring Open Hearted Living I have come to the conclusion that it is an advanced way of living where you not only achieve your hearts desires with more ease and grace, your life has more joy, balance and significance in making a positive contribution to life on this planet. I call this: ‘Genuine Success‘.

SUCCESS AT WHAT PRICE? We all know (sometimes too well) those who sacrifice their health, relationships or quality of life to achieve success in one area – often in business or sport. We also know of people who have dedicated their whole life to pursuing a goal and achieving and then realizing that it actually had little meaning for them and for the world.

GENUINE SUCCESS is about achieving what you want in the 5 main areas of your life:
1. HAPPINESS: Connecting to and living with peace, happiness, love and contentment
2. HEALTH: Enjoying an abundance of energy, well-being and good health
3. RELATIONSHIPS: Sharing alive fulfilling, loving intimate relationships, friendships and friends
4. SUCCESS / WEALTH: Achieving success (what you want) and financial freedom
5. SPIRITUAL GROWTH: Doing what you love: Expressing your uniques gifts, being of service to help make the world a better place

Being Whole

Emotional healing is about becoming whole. We have lost touch with the experience of wholeness through the suppression of incomplete emotional experiences. Our emotions are a great source of personal power and energy, they provide us with a wisdom that assists us in knowing what we want, and what is right for us. The sad fact is that we live in a culture that shames the expression of emotion and teaches denial invalidation and suppression.

The Anatomy of Shame

I recently counselled a middle aged couple, John and Maree. Maree was criticising and invalidating John for not being able to share his feelings with her. She told him that he was inadequate as a partner and that he was hopelessly out of touch with his feelings, just like her farther.
In response John felt ashamed and blank. With a little assistance from me,John shared how he felt about his relationship with Maree

Breathwork in the Quantum Age

There I was in a basement in Sydney lying down with a group of about eight people and being told to take deep, full breaths. I had heard stories about extraordinary experiences during this process and I was eager to see if it would work for me.
I lay down and started breathing. At the time I was an international marathon runner at the Australian Institute of Sport

I Open My Heart

We are conceived with our hearts more or less open. By this I mean that we are relatively connected to the truth of our being, to our source, to the oneness with all things, to our innate beauty, to love. Our feelings flow through our bodies relatively freely. Feelings are our life force, our animation;they provide us with personal power and create the ‘color’ in our life..
