Let your “perfectionist” rest… go with YOUR flow this summer-time!

Do you find yourself going, going, going and then… finally flopping…. or burning out?
Do you thrive on the adrenalin charges of achieving things to perfection, yet find it hard to truly value the down-time that follows?
Would you like to be able to live life at a more careful. conscious pace, so that you can be who you really are and express yourself freely and fully?
We love to welcome you on retreats to embrace the free-spirit of Ibiza this summer time. We recognise that so many of you have been fighting to keep the balls in the air, the many parts of “life” going “perfectly” – yet this seeking for perfection, really does make the warrior part of you weary.   Even spiritually aware warriors need time out to rest and retreat…  Trying to please the world around you and satisfy the needs of work-life-family responsibilities can be exhausting – even for the most organized and effective individuals.  For us, Larah and Susie, through our own life journeys, from the runing-running-running to “make things happen”, Ibiza has taught us how to slow down, how to stop pushing ourselves beyond that “tipping point” where the body wants to rest, yet the mind wants to keep on going!
It has taken us years, after living and working in London, New York and Sydney, to be able to trust ourselves – and life – and the divine order of everything. (Most of the Time!).  Now that we can, more and more (and we are still practicing) this is helping us to stop when we need to and wait for when we “feel” that we are going to be most effective.  This has enabled us to feel more and more free – by honouring ourselves and our highest good, we are able to live more in the moment – and honour our wellbeing.  It has taken courage – and still sometimes does – yet once you are on the “trust in life” boat, you can surrender into being more “present”, to live more moment-to-moment, with greater energy, enjoying the magic of each precious day.    The warrior may want to continue to achieve and create and go for it! Yet this is only the imprinted habits and conditioning… this is not who you really are…
So we invite you to give yourself permission this summer to truly rest the “warrior” parts of you by developing a personal practice that enables you to retreat from the stage of life regularly, so that you can tune back in and trust in yourself.  Then you can en JOY life more and simply go with the flow:
1. Take time out to tune in to your wise woman daily ( or man! ) by walking in nature and connecting with the natural world around you.
2. Actively practice appreciation – this will bring you into the present and enable you to open your heart (from where trust flows).
3. Balance mind-quietening meditations with releasing breath work so emotional charges can be released.
4. Surround yourself with healing sounds that help the nervous system and relax you physically as well as mentally.
5. Create the time each day with yoga, qi gong, tai chi, or other physical well being techniques that enable you to hone and tone and strengthen your SELF from the core and expand and enhance your mind-body-energy awareness.  Even just 10 minutes in the morning.  Choose quality over quantity!
 As you strengthen your connection with your body-mind and spirit – you strengthen your self-respect and can prioritise your relaxing time as being an essential part of enabling you to fully enjoy being you.
As you cultivate self-care and self-awareness through caring for your physical and emotional and spiritual needs, your trust will expand and the world around you begins to respect these too.
With love and FREEDOM!
