Welcome to my blog about living well and living consciously. I’m a writer on current trends in wellbeing, creativity, health and happiness. I write about the power of living positively and working out ways to find more harmony and less stress in life.
I explore how we can live being kinder to ourselves and other living creatures, finding better ways to take care of our precious planet. Leading with better food decisions and absorbing less harmful chemicals in our everyday life.
Technology is moving so fast, and the world is in a time of great change. It is a time when there is a lot of fear and anxiety around. Stress and anxiety-related diseases are the biggest disease creators in modern civilisation. It’s time to put more focus on ways we can reduce stress and work positively towards healthier and happier lifestyles.
I’ve spent a lot of time investigating new ways to live happier with supportive routines and spent time finding out how we can get more connected to our self and to others around us. I have written a book about happiness.
This blog is a place where I love to share information on easy and useful tools for creating balance and wellness.
I founded a successful global entertainment communications agency, ran a successful personal transformation business, and explored tools for transformation from around the world. It’s been a colourful journey. And I lived a life with a lot of stress for a long time. There have been spectacular meltdowns, traumas and life events which have all paved the way for some serious soul searching and healing.
Last year I was diagnosed with a brain tumour and that came completely out of the blue. I had started to lose my memory and my neighbour noticed something was not right with me and became concerned. She made me go to the local hospital when I could not remember the way to our local cafe, the hospital did an MRI scan straight away and the diagnosis of a serious brain tumour was made.
I remember the doctors saying, ‘It is not our job to dress this up and we have to just tell you the way it is. This scan result is not good news, the outcome doesn’t look good. You are unlikely to stay alive after 8 weeks unless you agree to have chemotherapy immediately’. They said that it could be that I wouldn’t survive the process.
I made a decision that I would survive it and it was not my time to go. I am a mum with a teenage son who needed me and I knew in my heart that it was not my time to go anywhere.
The journey that followed taught me deep and profound lessons about life, friends and family. I now have a clear bill of health, two clear MRI scans showing that the tumour has gone and is fully healed and am entering back into life and have returned home after 10 months of treatment in hospital.
I’m a different person now after this deep journey and it feels like I have had new upgraded operating software installed following this experience. I’ve learnt how to ask for help and receive support from the amazing community around me. My family have been amazing and all pulled together. We all got closer and I ended up living with my brothers on rotation for the months after I left hospital. They all helped and supported me during my recovery from the effects of chemo and stem cell replacement therapy.
My family life is in a quiet place in the centre of Ibiza. I’ve been learning from nutritionalists, shamans, scientists, spiritual warriors, CBD oil experts, sound healers and people in the communities of radical thinkers and new consciousness scientists. I have been using meditation, hypnosis, intention setting, prayer and other methods to help my healing journey.
Here is my writing about using mind, body, spirit in ways old and new. I survived cancer, healed myself and lived to tell the story. I kept the faith that I could heal and I did. I took control of my thoughts and would not allow myself to dip into any negative conversations or thought patterns. I held it steady all that time and it worked. I meditated and prayed daily and had an amazing community who pulled together to support me while I was in hospital and having treatment.
I have a new book out early next year with Jasmine Hemsley, called True You, published by Bluebird. We had started writing the book before I got ill but now its going to be a very different book after the deep journey I went on last year. We have both got a lot more depth to bring to our writings on the subject.
I have got another new book coming out that I’ve just finished called The Art of Creativity – the daily habits of highly creative people. It will come out early 2010 and features interviews I have done with Russell Brand, KT Tunstall, Paul McCartney and other famous names.
I will also be in conversation with the David Lynch Foundation talking about the power of meditation in healing, amongst other wonderfully inspiring stories as part of a podcast series In Conversation with Susie Pearl.
I look forward to sharing all of this with you and love to hear your thoughts.
As my beautiful young son said, ´We won 2019, Mum´ – I got through the brain cancer and came out the other side and I am here to tell the tales and talk about what I learnt in that process which was truly profound. We can all self-heal and we can use our inner mind power to create the extraordinary if we know where to find it.
Look forward to catching up with you here. Please leave comments, I love to hear from you.
