Summer Time

It must be love, love, love

Nothing more,

Nothing less,

Love is the best!

A snippet of the words from the Madness hit back in the 90’s came to me after our meditative walk through the forest as we had watched the sun rise on the Solstice.

It was magical as we all chanted ‘Om So Hum’ while practising yoga, the forest listened as we all connected.  ‘So Hum’ is derived from Sanskrit and literally means ‘I am That’ meaning we identify ourselves with the universe, as we chant or meditate on this, we realise that we are all one, we all come from one infinite source that’s present in all of us.

Summer is my high energy time; sunshine brings me the yellow of joy to celebrate and use up every ounce of daylight!  Last week was full of sounds with a gong bath, walking mindfully and teaching yoga in nature.  Guiding a meditation class of loving kindness, hiking in the Wicklow Mountains and more..why?

It’s my season I know I come alive when the sun shines, I love the long summer days, the smell of cut grass, and the brightness in the mornings.  The beautiful sunsets illuminating the skyline, lying about in the sun soaking up the warm breeze, catching up with friends and family eating outdoors.

How do you feel during the summer? Do you take time to soak up and fill your heart with gratitude as you enjoy the summer holidays? Maybe autumn is your season when the leaves are changing colours and falling.  Whatever your season notice how you mind and body feels and do what’s good for you.

Everything I write about is geared towards things that I deeply care about. My greatest strengths are in topics about health and wellness. I’ve been fortunate enough to take my passion for holistic wellness (yoga, reiki, meditation) and follow my dream to bring balance into my daily life. I've been a finance and risk manager of the national tourism body, headed up the operations team of a golf management company, board trustee of an international NGO. I learnt a lot about business management and mentoring teams through change. As a Chartered Management Accountant (CIMA), Corporate Social Responsibility Practitioner and Project Manager, I’ve been fortunate to make a living doing something I love providing business supports and consulting. I got into holistic health and wellness because I wanted to help people. It is my hope that my blog will encourage people to reflect on what's important to them, step out of the comfort zone and create something great. At the end of the day, the goal of improved health and wellness is to be able to create a quality of life that makes life enjoyable. Business is the same way. As business owners, we want to create something great while being able to provide ourselves a good living while enjoying what we love. Feel free to reach out to me on advice about health and wellness and business. It is my desire to help everyone find their passion (dharma).
