How often in our lives have we questioned ourselves in finding a more harmonious and balanced lifestyle not only within ourselves, but within our personal relationships, family, friends, partners, your pets?
I often remind myself and my clients, there is no general ‘quick fix’ to inner and outer harmony and our yin and yang balance. There is no absolute truths in finding this either. Some people find this through there own vices, whether it be through a hobby, sport, a personal interest, yoga, meditation, walking, nature, freediving, scuba, surfing, reading, dancing, music, the list is endless. The question is, does this action have a positive impact on your inner and outer well being? Does it create a sense of harmony and balance not just for yourself, but for others, animals and nature?
Everything is in constant motion of action and reaction, cause and effect, full cycles, the cycle of life is continuous. We are a part of this cycle, a part of nature, we are nature. Meditation is a simple tool to assist you to get back to your quiet inner centre, back to your inner nature, your inner yin and yang, reconnect and be in harmony with yourself, others, mother nature.
If you are 100 percent present in the moment, with your hobby or sport, you are already meditating, if it helps finds your inner centre, harmony and balance, that is one of the key ingredients to assisting in your well being. Which means less stress and this has a positive impact (cause and effect) for your family, friends, pets, your loved ones around you.
Today, find a quiet moment, just ten minutes, for yourself and reflect on what brings you inner harmony and balance? Is this positive and does it help with your inner and outer health, well being? Begin with a few deep breathes, close your eyes, imagine a quiet, calm, sandy beach and allow stress to dissolve away….
This simple technique every day can be a beginning of creating a healthier, balanced and harmonious lifestyle for you!

Meditation can be a single drop of water within the ocean, or it can be the entire ocean
Have you had those days where the rain never seems to stop? Mother Nature opens the sky and water continues for days upon end? The sky is grey, clouds are dark and the sun has fallen asleep with no sunrise or sunset… It’s been like this recently in France, for the past week and trying to be motivated to meditate and do my daily practice, (the words from Yoda start to ring true)..and
Back to reality…being ‘present’ is an important focus point in meditation including the point of breath and discipline. Without these three main factors in your meditation practice, motivation to continue can become a challenge. We can always find excuses why we cannot find the time, discipline, inspiration to do something; in this context, I’m referring to meditation. In the next few weeks, I will be posting some guidance on various techniques of meditation practice, how to overcome limiting thoughts and excuses when it begins with your meditation practice. For beginners this will be helpful too.
Practice makes perfect! I shall be including breath work meditation for freediving and an interview…watch this space..

The Art and practice of Tai Chi, Qigong is a constant life long journey of self mastery, this is an internal process of personal evolution. To practice any form of meditation takes focus and discipline, this can be done in any environment indoors or outdoors, ideally in nature. Nature will hold the space you need, to calm your body and mind during your meditation. Recently, we did a Qigong meditation within the forest, of France, you can see my clothing is for outdoors winter, with wellies! My teachers always reminded me, in sun or frost, rain or snow, if you have the beautiful surroundings of mother nature to do your practice, see this as a great gift of opportunity and enjoy! Make no excuses! If you thinking about meditating, today is a perfect time to begin.
The circle above is a symbolic meaning in Japanese called ENSO, a Zen circle representing strength; letting the mind be free for the body to create, this is where the art of practicing Tai Chi Qigong can assist us.
