L E T T E R from Jac – Be Kind

A victim mentality can really block us from a whole lot of connection with other people. The ego bleating that no one understands and that we have it harder. I was having a little internal shit fit the other day about something I had gotten wrong, that then created a cascading affect on my week…

L E T T E R from Jo – Yes, And…

Viewing our world, our lives, our experiences from a lens of abundance versus a lens of lack is something very appealing. I love the idea that it is all there for us and for others too. It can be challenging at times when I transfer the notion of abundance and all it’s beauty in to…

L E T T E R from Jac – Confidence In Our Compassion Part 2

Following on from yesterday’s Letter – compassion isn’t trying to promote or defend ourselves, which is the opposite of compassion, but is actually tapping into our basic goodness, AND additionally having boundaries. As Brene Brown explains, “The most compassionate people that I’ve ever interviewed… happened to be the most boundaried. They happened to be the people who…

L E T T E R from Jac – Confidence In Our Compassion Part 1

I think we are all at times confused about the essence of compassion because we think it’s just for others and not ourselves. So I have dug up some older writings I have on compassion.

L E T T E R from Jac – Creative Abundance

How do I do so many creative things and put them into the world? It’s a question I am asked a bit so it seemed worthwhile taking a moment to answer this as there are many inputs to my creativity personally. It’s not a seemingly inexhaustible capacity to create as it might seem. It’s a…

L E T T E R from Jac – Calling Future Self

Try this, Get some paper and pen. Sit down some place comfortable, slow your breathing, relax into your body. Imagine it’s six months from now. Really dive into this experience.

L E T T E R from Jac – Harmonising over Balance

Balance is tricky, as it doesn’t take into account our forever shifting psychology, neurology and physiology. What might seem like balance one day, won’t continue on others, and trust me, I think the person that created the idea of ‘work/life balance’ did so in order to drive everyone to insanity. Layer in the current obsession…

L E T T E R from Jac – Finding Your Creative Calling

I’ve been getting lots of emailed questions from students and I put a call out on Instagram for questions recently and wanted to answer some of them here, as they are excellent questions!

L E T T E R from Jac – Energetic Boundaries

Energetic boundaries are fascinating, not just on social media, but also within workplaces, and families. With the work I do setting boundaries is incredibly important, and also I am an empath and lean and topple over into areas I shouldn’t, very easily. When it comes to social media, I find this a tricky place in…
