I’ve been stuck for the last few months, thinking about what to do & where to go. I knew it was time to leave the centre and reduce the one-to-one therapy I was doing. I was in a place where I was working hard simply to pay the rent and though I loved what I did and the workshops, not everything was a deep passion for me.

Today is a full moon. a chance to release anything stuck or beliefs or patterns that you want to let go of to move forward.
We all know the phase thoughts become reality and everything is energy -so think abut the thoughts you have and the words you say, especially about yourself! Do you say I can’t do that… I’m no good at…. I’m unlucky, I can’t….. I never…. Well the full moon is the perfect time to release all those phases, mindset and blocks. Work with the full moon’s energy to clear and release in readiness for the new moon in 14 days time x
The full moon is a time to cleanse, clear and release.
Both on a physical level with decluttering and also on mindset, belief, energy level. Releasing old beliefs that no longer work for us, or old vows (marriage, relationship etc) that are no longer part of our present.
Below is a short video on how to work with the moon’s energy. If you want to learn more about working with the New Moon energy to manifest of the Full moon to release then please check out my mini-course details are here: https://romella.simplero.com/page/77621-moon-energies

You might question how being “present in the moment” is a positive thing – when you’re stuck, feeling sad, stressed, anxious or depressed. But stop, the emotions you are feeling are actually unlikely to be related to the present moment but to a past or future event. Mindfulness connects you to the current moment, a time you can influence now.
Think of the stress reaction – muscles tighten, stomach churns, become sweaty, breathing difficulties, fight or flight adrenaline/cortisol hormones kick in. Our thoughts go back to a similar experience and the negative beliefs that we created from that experience and the emotions this brings up, triggering stress. However, these hormones aren’t burnt up (from running away) and so remain in the body keeping us on “high alert” creating issues of anxiety, panic attacks, sleep problems, headaches and restlessness.
The alternative mindful response is to move out of the flight/flight response and into a “being” response – to slowdown, notice breath, feel grounded, acknowledge the thoughts (don’t judge them). Preventing the release of more stress hormones, allowing the release of the calming hormone oxytocin instead.
What is mindfulness – it’s about “being in the present moment”, watching your thoughts without engaging and judging them. It’s about quietening the mind and when thoughts come up replying with a “ah that’s interesting” and then letting them go, not creating an inner dialogue/emotion about the thought.
The benefits of mindfulness are to allow you to relax. Mindfulness is shown to reduce stress, tension, anxiety and depression, reduce anger outbursts and generally be a positive tool in your daily life.
Who can Mindful Meditation classes benefit? Anyone who is looking to reduce their stress levels, support better sleep, feel calmer & more in control of their emotions, anyone who is looking to relieve their symptoms of anxiety or depression, or simply anyone who is looking for an hour to “be” themselves & relax and renew themselves.

What do you do to refill your bucket? To look after yourself?
This month I’m sharing tips & tools to support you filling your bucket – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Come and join me. It’s FREE! Continue reading “July Freebie – It’s All About You!”
What do you call yourself?
What other names do you answer to?
How do you introduce yourself?
When are you “you” and not a role?
I’ve been thinking about this more and how I introduce myself. Most often I’m “Hello I’m Rom, Mum to x”, when I’m working “I’m Romella, I’m all about sharing quick simple tools to bring you into balance and calm”. It’s only occasionally that I’m “just” me. But there’s no just about it.
The person I am is part of all the roles I have in life; as mother, wife, daughter, teacher, friend, therapist, leader… It’s my mindset, my actions, my beliefs, my objectives, my aims, my experiences which all become part of who I am – the real me.
How often are you your true self – not fulfilling the role of Mum, Daughter, Carer, cleaner, cook, laundry manager?
I’m finding I need to switch off from my roles and make sure I spend some time being me. This might mean that the ironing isn’t done very frequently, that I have my head in a book just for fun, that I need some lone time to meditate (maybe with a nap afterwards).
I really need time alone to “just be”, in order to be the best person I can to fulfill the roles I love to do. If I don’t get a good nights sleep, or the children fight bedtimes & I don’t get to switch off in the evening, or if I don’t meditate or miss my doTERRA supplements – then I won’t be the best person I can be. I get angry. upset, emotional.
I react differently to how my calm, normal self would have done in the same circumstances. I might blame them (the child, husband, other driver), but in reality it was me – my not prioritising myself, by not doing things that nurture and sort “me”, things that bring me into balance and calm. Often those around us share lessons with us that can go misunderstood or unrecognised.
Its important that we look after ourselves – as the slogan says – “You’re worth it”. If you aren’t looking after yourself, how can you look after others?
