Intuition Vs Gut Instinct

SSS Free Stock 1017-5

Many people think that your intuition is that first, initial reaction you get – your gut instinct – and although your gut instinct will guide you well and keep you safe, this is not your intuition communicating with you.

Your gut instinct is your body’s learned response to situations based on past experience (read that again).

If you really want to make massive shifts in your life, you need to make more decisions based on what your intuition is telling you, rather than your gut instinct.

In order to tap into your intuition, you need to get still and quiet, and most importantly, aware.  That one thing that keeps popping up over and over again… That’s your intuition!  Journalling is a good way of listening to your intuition – read your past entries and look for patterns and repeating thoughts.

Distinguishing the difference between your gut instinct and your intuition will help you start making decisions in your life and business based on confidence rather than fear.  This is when you will notice the shift.

Tell me your favourite way of tapping into your intuition and how it has helped you in your life or business.

Mini-Moments to Boost Your Happiness

Copy of Copy of Intentional Journalling Prompts

A mini-moment is a tiny spot of time dedicated to lifting your mood and raising your vibration.  Think of it as a mini sanctuary in your brain that you can nip in and out of throughout the day.  All you need is one minute, but you can make your mini-moments last as long as you want, and do them as often as you like.

Having a mini-moment has so many benefits: reduced heart rate and blood pressure; an energy boost; clear thinking and focus; a deeper connection to your intuition; a calmer state of mind, and raised vibration, just to name a few.

Examples of a mini-moment include: having a chat with a friend (a positive one); listening to an uplifting podcast; reading a page or chapter of a book, and my favourite for when you are short on time, concentrating on your breath for one minute.

When you concentrate on your breath, you become very present in the moment, and it’s like having a mini meditation.  Don’t try to alter your breath – just notice it and keep bringing your mind back to it.  You can use an app for this, if you’d prefer.  I use the app Calm because it has a guided meditation for this and you can let it run for as many minutes as you have or need.

I have created a free printout for you on the Resources Page with lots of mini-moments for you to try.  Let me know how you get on and I’d love to know what your favourite mini-moment is!

I am currently creating a brand new Masterclass for you, and I’m so excited because I am gifting this Masterclass to all of my email subscribers for free!  If you want to find out more and be eligible for this amazing offer, all you have to do is subscribe to my email list.



Intentional Journalling

I have kept a journal for over twenty years now, but more recently, I’ve stepped up my game and I now practice intentional journalling on a daily basis.

Intentional journalling is more than documenting your day. It’s asking yourself particular questions in order to grow, become more intuitive and even manifest your dreams. This is different from free-writing and diary writing. With intentional journalling, you start with a question, and by tapping into your higher-self and listening to your intuition, you answer that question.

It can be beneficial to meditate before you write in your journal. You can ask your spirit guides for the answer, or you can just get centred and focus on your breathing. I have outlined my morning journalling routine below so you can get an idea:

  • Start with a question or prompt in mind
  • Sit comfortably, with your journal to hand, and close your eyes
  • Focus on the question/prompt you have chosen
  • What emotions does that question/prompt bring up?
  • Why do you think you feel this way?
  • If you like, ask your spirit guides or the Universe for guidance
  • Then, when you’re ready, open your eyes and write.

I always like to end the session with another meditation, thanking the Universe for guidance and writing three things I am grateful for in my journal. Ending the session with gratitude invites amazing vibes into your day and always lifts my mood.

I have created a free worksheet for you, full of intentional journalling prompts to help you get started. This is now on the new Resources page. I am putting a lot of work into creating new, free resources for you, so please keep checking the page for the new additions.

Morning Affirmations

0cd3952b5693191f2b8cb896fff56c81[5181]Your best day will start with your perfect morning, and instead of going through your whole morning routine, I want to concentrate on morning affirmations.

Affirmations are basically little notes to yourself. You can use affirmations to remind yourself how great you are, be grateful for certain things in your life and set intentions for the rest of your day.

In my experience, when I set good intentions at the start of the day, my day flows better and I’m more focused and aware of what I’m doing. Setting intentions or going through your morning affirmations doesn’t have to take up a huge chunk of your morning routine. Just a minute or two is enough – whether you’re writing out your intentions in your journal, or just saying them to yourself out loud, or in your head.

I’ve created a worksheet for you, which includes some of my favourite affirmations and space for you to create your own. To help you out, here’s some examples of how you can start your affirmations:

  • Today, I am…
  • I am grateful for…
  • I am ready to…
  • I feel…
  • Today, I will consciously create…
  • I am mindful of…

Commit to your morning affirmations for a week and see how it effects the rest of your day. And don’t forget to let me know how it went!



A Word on Manifestation

HealthBenefits ofOranges (2)

I felt like I needed to write this post to clarify what manifesting really is. Some people think that manifesting works by wishing for something, then it magically appears in your life. No!

Manifesting works by training your mind, similar to cognitive behavioural therapy. You concentrate on the things you want in your life, or the things you want to happen, and it trains your brain to recognise these things, or opportunities to gain these things in real life.

Let me give you an example. You want to manifest more money in your life. You listen to money mantras every morning and every night. You create vision boards of what your life will look like with more money. You meditate and envision yourself with a healthy bank balance. You won’t all of a sudden wake up one morning to find that your bank balance has magically increased.

What will actually happen, is that you will be training your brain to recognise the money you already have in your life, and be more thankful for it. You will be more aware of money-making opportunities and be more likely to respond to those opportunities.

This is how manifesting really works. Think about it – if you ask your friend to concentrate on the colour red, they will notice the colour red throughout the day in places they have never noticed it before. Try it and see.

Manifesting actually works – just not in the way you think it does. Nothing worth having comes easily… You have to be open to opportunity and willing to take action when the time comes.

Leave me a comment below and tell me what you are manifesting in your life right now. How is it going for you?

Find Your Passion

Find Your Passion

I truly believe that to get what you want in life, you should do what you love.  If you have passion for something, you put more effort into it, so it makes sense that you will achieve more and do better working on your passions…

But what if you don’t know what your passion is?  This is where you get stuck, or feel lost – when you don’t know what you love or what you want to be doing – or you know what you want to do, but don’t know how to go about it.  This was one of the reasons I started Dream Plan Achieve.  My mission is to help other people find out what their passions are, and make a plan to move forward and achieve their goals.

Going back to basics, the best way I have found that helps to unlock what you truly desire is to mindmap.  Set a timer for 5-10 minutes and go to town…  Think about what your dream life would look like in 3 months time, a years’ time and 5 years’ time.

I have created a workbook for you – completely free – which is designed to help you get crystal clear on your goals and develop a plan to achieve them.  It’s called the Get Clear Roadmap.  Click on the link below, type in your email address and I’ll send it to your inbox straight away.  The workbook is in pdf format, so it’s super easy to print, save and share.

Let me know what you think of the Get Clear Roadmap in the comments below.

Happy Planning!
