    L E T T E R – Every Small Act

    I’m heading this morning from Sydney to a karate tournament in Okinawa. It has been a dream of mine since I started studying Shorin-ryu karate with my Sensei to travel with him to Okinawa and I added it late last year, to the thingsRead More

    L E T T E R – Progressive Change

    We have wired into our brains and bodies most of our reactions, thoughts, prejudices, and biases. We did so a long time ago, and we simply install them deeper with continuing to engage with that which is outdated. It’s not a conscious action, it’sRead More

    L E T T E R – An Abundance

    This stands true not just for creativity, but for love, gratitude, compassion, kindness. Additionally for anger, resentment, shame, guilt.  So the more we use, the more we have. Best make clear decisions on these choices. Sent with love, Jac x

    L E T T E R – For The Pros

    Inspiration comes to us through a channel of creativity. It’s not out there ‘waiting for us’ it’s flowing from within us. We then recognise that creativity, inspiration (and love and compassion, gratitude etc) all come from within us, then we can stop hanging aboutRead More

    L E T T E R – Collaborate For Clarity

    Sometimes one of the challenges of being self-employed is that you are always working to a degree. Even if you’re ‘off’ for a little while, that still involves checking emails and monitoring staff and dealing with emergencies that might come up. I’m always fascinatedRead More

    L E T T E R – Where is That Somewhere?

    ‘Something, somewhere incredible is waiting to be known’; where is that somewhere? Inside of you. Every external experience we define as ‘true’ is a trigger of that truth within us, it’s that which we already know. It’s not ‘new’ information. I’ve had a fewRead More

    Weekend Edition 11

    The weekend is here!! I will be enjoying the next three days at the splendid Splendour In The Grass festival, and will leave you with this inspiration for the week ahead!!!    WATCH   I haven’t gotten to sit with this but love LouisRead More

    L E T T E R – The Crazy Ones

    I’ve done some seriously crazy things and some seriously dumb things in my time. I created a huge design and art exhibition without any prior experience just a lot of enthusiasm, and set it up like a house, in an actual house when I wasRead More

    L E T T E R – The Unknown

    We recently got our daughters school report back. There are lots of columns marking all the different areas, how she worked, what results she got, how that rated her in regards to the class and so on. She was confused I barely glanced atRead More

    L E T T E R – The Voyeur

    Pinterest and Instagram and all the other platforms I don’t even know about are such an incredible source of inspiration. And they’re also simultaneously eating into our ability to create on our own, from a source within us.  Recent conversations with an established interiorRead More

    L E T T E R – Inner Force

    I’ve been meditating for a very long time, and this inner force is the most powerful tool I know for living more authentically and creatively. There is a field of creative intelligence, something greater than us, that strings the whole thing together that weRead More

    Weekend Edition 10

    This Weekend Edition I am writing from an iPad. With very little battery, and the slowest wifi ever, so I can’t even begin to pull up all the links I have been collecting to share with you. So, instead, I’m going to pen youRead More

    L E T T E R – Some Notes

    I have sat on this quote for some time. There seemed to be so many moving parts to it, each that I liked as a stand-alone…  “Make Your Ego Porous” A hardened ego is going to be very hard to break. It might takeRead More

    L E T T E R – Everyone Is Creative 

    I get upset when I hear people say ‘oh I am not creative’ or exclaim ‘so and so doesn’t have a creative bone in their body!”. Because I truly believe everyone has the capacity to be creative. Anytime we think laterally and think ofRead More

    L E T T E R – A Different Daily Grind

    Clarity is an interesting concept when it comes to learning, as the more we learn, the more we realise there is to learn. The more we know, the more it dawns on us we don’t know. Grappling with this is the thing that IRead More

    L E T T E R ­ – Nature Within

    I really love Jane Goodall and I really love this quote. I also believe in a spiritual power higher than ourselves and I feel it more deeply in nature. But I also want to point out that we are nature ourselves. And when we dive deeplyRead More

    Weekend Edition 9

    This Weekend Edition is going to be a touch shorter than the other ridiculously long ones, as I pen it early morning mid packing for a road trip up the East Coast with my daughter in a campervan. The endless shifting between work andRead More

    L E T T E R – The Tests

    In essence, this quote means to surrender to what is, with full acceptance. One of the most challenging things to embody!  When we have goals and vision boards and things we want to manifest or create, it’s fraught with the hurdles of demanding aRead More

    L E T T E R – Remember to Breathe

    When I was young, I had the utmost confidence in my creativity. Arran and I were laughing on the way to Melbourne last week as I shared a story (he was laughing in horror) when I was about 10 or 11 years old, IRead More

    L E T T E R – Stay In Your Corner

    There’s something so wonderful about discovering things about yourself, having realisations and seeing tangible results from doing self-development or spiritual work. In fact, it feels so good, that frequently we can become rather smitten with the whole thing, and with good intentions want toRead More

    L E T T E R – The Path

    I still remember many years back, over a decade ago, standing in a bookstore in New York, and picking up Wherever You Go There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn. I stood still and for about 30 minutes to read the book, that I thenRead More
