  • Empowering Potential Provided by Problems in Paradise

    Empowering Potential Provided by Problems in Paradise ⚡🌺🤣 I'm in Maui, first stop in a 'coming of age' adventure with my 16 yr old son Noah and our first 24 hrs have given us a plethora of problems to deal with, which I'll explain in a mo. The invitation/agreement for the trip is: 🙌You get to go anywhere in the world with one parent for max 2 weeks. 🙌You have to show a strong desire and reason for where you want to go that is life enhancing and appreciating. 🙌You collaborate with parent in all aspects of planning the trip and understanding costs involved. 🙌It's backpacker style with some perks! 🙌You lead the trip as much as possible whilst there. For anyone curious about why we do this (and yes I do truly feel blessed to be able to even offer this)...the idea is promoting individuation AND collaboration/connection; overcoming obstacles; appreciation of culture, people, money, time, choice, beauty; following heart's desire; general adulting training in a presence orientated way! My eldest son Jack chose a Natural/Cultural History tour of Italy with Dad a few years back. Noah by default gets me and chose Hawaii: Open Water Dive training in Maui followed by diving with Manta Rays on Big Island. Added bonus of Volcano action! So just 24hrs or so in, paradise has thrown us some serious adulting potential! ⚡Credit Card blocked so couldn't escape Carpark in rental car on landing in Maui (oops I forgot to tell them I was going overseas, poor adulting Moi!). Luckily Noah to the rescue, after some car lane shenanigans, as his debit card bank wasn't so risk aware LOL. ⚡Expensive new sim cards fail to work after hrs in store trying to sort...unrefundable! ⚡Trying to navigate with no paper map, no google. ⚡Flat tyre in rental car to sort and accom 15 min drive from anywhere. ⚡Despite power, no actual plugs in Tentalow (glamping type accommodation) for powering almost useless phones...luckily wifi there though. ⚡No utensils, pots or ANYTHING in camp kitchen except a BBQ. ⚡Arriving in Lahaina on a Sat night to get food (flat tyre, no map, jet lagged, HUNGRY)...tad overwhelmed with busy-ness, paid parking, 'no room at the inn' in every cafe/restaurant we went to. ⚡Trying to sleep the first night, realising that along with our beautiful beach front location we are also adjacent to the main road with trucks passing constantly! To our mutual credit, after a few early morning release tears (just me) the following day when I realised the car tyre was flat again and we had no food for breakfast...we both calmly moved step by step through each challenge, with Noah taking the lead where possible...exactly as planned of course, thankyou universe 🤣! 💫24 hrs later and we have an esky full of breakfast food, aluminium (i know but needs must) plates for the BBQ/fire, compostable cutlery/plates, a new tyre, a Maui paper map and lots of screenshot google maps from camp wifi, sleep restored mental health (traffic noise disappeared into bsckground), mind mapped the local area, credit card unblocked, navigated getting to Haleakala National Park/Volcano and done an awesome sunset walk led by Noah, establishing a new phase of relationship with each other! 💫 Phew... I'm now sitting by the public recharge station which is charging my power bank at a snails pace, while Noah is at day 1 dive training. And you know what? I'm enjoying the contrast. I can feel the undercurrent of deep stillness and power that is here in Maui. The beauty is evident all around inspite of the hustle and bustle of tourism, with all of it's detritus in denser areas. Its a bit like the feeling you get when diving, being the quiet observer. I'm curious about what the next few weeks will bring! Mahalo Rebecca

  • There is so much in the world trying to draw us outward

    There is so much in the world trying to draw us outward, which can create overwhelm, fatigue and burnout. The body has been such a gift for helping me to turn my awareness inward. When I combine listening to my body with the power of presence, breath and the science of yoga asana it is an even greater gift. Each pose has unique offering. Eagle pose, with it's crossing over of limbs at the midline, balance challenge and upper back and shoulder stretch helps us to: Integrate both sides of the brain Find our true sense of centre Deal with uncertainty Get a different perspective Release past hurts and the weight of responsibility. Restore peace and clarity With deepest love Rebecca

  • Long Post Alert

    Long Post Alert 🤓 At the beginning of each new year I like to reflect on the year that was. It's easy to fall into the 'what's next' without a DEEP appreciation for what you have already been through, accomplished, released and transformed. That deep appreciation helps grow self-assurance and faith for courageously moving forward into the next phase of your life. Until I wrote this today, I really hadn't fully absorbed the enormity of what transpired in 2022. A year ago, none of us knew what 2022 would look like and we were slowly coming out of a few years of being surrounded by global uncertainties and fears. Knowing what you know now, if you could go back and give yourself some advice for 2022, what would it be? For me the last 18 months (at least!) has been a dragon ride of epic proportions. The deep work I am doing is calling in all soul incarnations to be honoured, healed and calibrated into the power of NOW....dark nights of the soul and full embodied cell shaking radiance of the soul have been radically transforming my world on every level. As with all uplevelling, there is a shaking of foundations as change is heralded. From a business perspective it has called for yet another surrender and leap into the unknown. I have been training for it, yet my humanness was not without some fear! Writing this out now I am actually in awe of myself and this past year - here are some of the key moments of my 2022: ⭐️Eldest son turned 18 and left home for Uni - mixed emotions. ⭐️Our first Beacon baby was born, beautiful Vivien. ⭐️Our first combined in-person and livestreamed Beacon event due to Covid - great team effort, mixed tech success! ⭐️Established myself as an Intuitive artist and launched printed Altar Cards. ⭐️The FLOODS - mega clean up on a friends property led to healing and connection. ⭐️Hosting sacred music events in multiple venues - big city, belle tent, alt. house concerts/house warming inc. first Desert Song and Raw Heart concerts. ⭐️Multiple Brilliance without Burnout Events and then our FINALE BWB - the HUGE soul call to let the event go and create new signature intro event/s. ⭐️2 x Potent Goddess Embodiment Retreats with our Year 1 Beacons. ⭐️A rather lengthy building process to put in a 'wall of light' in my WOMB ROOM clinic and temple space. ⭐️Took part in a Bribie Eco-Tourism forum. ⭐️First 'Adulting' camp and climb adventures with family plus girlfriend! ⭐️4 x Embodied Foundations 3 day events with our Beacons, with new members joining our incredible community each quarter. Now over 30 Beacons in our Year Mastery Programme!! ⭐️Hosting last Radiant Femmes Meet-Up after 3 years of speakers, events and online group....time to now let it go and focus energies elsewhere. ⭐️A month in the Red Centre - massive soul reclamation, global healing and initiation to country...still integrating! Also raised $2500 for Indigo Foundation on my sponsored hike on Larapinta Trail. ⭐️Igniting of my painting and psychic intuition journey follows with Green Tara coming through strongly. ⭐️I turn 50 and feel fabulous - a gathering of light bearers in celebration. Feeling blessed to have such heart centred sisters in my life. ⭐️Creator Unleashed (CU): 7 Day Heaven on Earth Collective is launched. My first fully online and 100% channeled programme. It is a roaring success and new Beacons were born. ⭐️Create our first evergreen online memb. programme from CU. ⭐️Crystalline Clarity a new 1/2 day in person event is launched in record time with my 'Star of Clarity' system and new Beacons were born! ⭐️First SWAG road trip with one of my Beacon Angels to run our Magnetic Island Retreat.... I⭐️S⭐️I⭐️S magic abounds on the way and next level quantum earth healing on Castle Hill, Townsville! ⭐️Ran our 3rd Level 3 Beacon's Sovereign Quantum Leap retreat on Magnetic Island - just WOAH! ⭐️I⭐️S⭐️I⭐️S came through big time on canvas following - huge energy and healing in/during this painting. ⭐️First family RAW 9km obstacle run challenge - much 'other life' healing around this, felt like a multi level initiation. Huge success on all levels! ⭐️Deep Grief as we suddenly have to say goodbye to our precious Indi, companion and therapy dog. To know grief you must have known love. ⭐️Grief arises as the theme for our last Beacon 3 day of 2022, cracking open hearts for next level healing, connection and reclaiming of soul power. ⭐️Surrender the attempt to grow long 'goddess locks' hair and embrace the goddess within LOL..... feeels greaaaat! ⭐️Welcome my blood family from UK after 4 long years apart, special times for 6 weeks....ongoing! ⭐️'Beacon Theatre' is launched and is in workshop mode - yes the Beacon journey is coming to stage - 8 women, 1 shared story, GULP! We have even been accepted into the ANYWHERE Festival and will be performing live May 27th - WOOHOO!! Huge shoutout to Afra Feeney, Beacon and creator of 6 Mangrove Productions and Tracey M Benson both collaborating on this. ⭐️Honoured to accept a request to be on the 'board' for NEW Bribie Artists Collective and then to be welcomed onto the artist trail map - I am now officially an ARTIST! ⭐️Thrilled and excited to be asked to collaborate with Treecreate in hosting 'Weaving Waters' an Artist in Residence Symposium to be held Nov 2023 on Bribie - where science, nature, spirituality and art meet. In-between the lines there has been a lot to sit with emotionally, mentally, physically and energetically as my soul continues to move me towards expansion, fears are sat with (sometimes wrestled with) and grief has at times felt like it could swallow me. And yet this foundation of connection to source that I cultivate daily, my Soul Self, continues to support me (as do my earth angels and Beacon community) and grow stronger every day throughout every perceived challenge. I am lighter and brighter as I emerge through darkness, embodying the truth of my divine nature, without limits, one breath at a time. My sacred mission is being fulfilled, of that I have no doubt. My capacity expands and my light reaches even the darkest corners.... And so my own advice to myself at the start of 2022 would have been: Relish every moment - high and low, you will look back on these days and realise what an epic turning point they were in your soul's evolution. Nothing is ever a negative, self doubt is your poison and Self-love is your medicine! You are Sovereign and Success is assured. Thankyou for bearing witness. How about your 2022 dear heart? With Love and Radiance Rebecca

  • Sky Warrior Pose in yoga.

    Every pose has it's physical, emotional and energetic qualities. I love this pose for it's strength, focus and courageous heart.

  • Down dog or Adho Mukha Svanasana

    Down dog or Adho Mukha Svanasana is one of my favourite poses in yoga and maybe one of the most recognisable. It is grounding, opening, calming and strengthening, it gives another perspective upside down! It can be elongating and rejuvenating for the spine, healing and strengthening for the wrists and shoulders but ONLY if practised correctly. It is one of poses I continuously correct with my students as it takes a while to master body awareness in this position. Below are the 3 most common mistakes to avoid that if uncorrected will lead to more stress on the body not ease. 1. Do not place heels on floor at expense of lengthened spine, heels off is fine as long as they are on stretch - the pelvic tilt forward is the most important aspect to ensure no back strain. 2. Flat hands is essential with spread fingers facing forward to take pressure off of the wrist. No gaps under the base of fingers. 3. Collapsing into the neck and shoulders is a no-no and creates compression. Broaden through the shoulders and relax the weight of the head for optimal positive effects on me k and shoulders."

  • Every-body's body is unique

    Every-body's body is unique and every day you have a unique experience in your own body. Learning to respond to my body's needs in a way that stems from deep listening is something I have been cultivating and teaching for years now. The interesting thing is that the deeper I go and the more sensitive to my body's wisdom I get, the subtler I am. Less is always more when I move from this place....there is more 'tapasya' when I move from my centre. Tapasya is a yogic term for an internal heat that comes from 'staying with' . This internal fire is what creates transformation, the combustion of old redundant patterns. We all have patterns that we have acquired mentally, emotionally and energetically that have become embedded in the physical. Some are healthy, some have become redundant. Those not serving us anymore eventually give rise to discomfort in some way. Its through this deep listening and responding to my body wisdom that huge healing shifts have occurred on all levels of my being. Its such an interesting journey!

  • 3 pose flow for grounding, energy and courage!

    As a yoga teacher, yoga is of course one of my go to physical practices. What I love is the intentional, therapeutic and energetic aspect of it. Here's a quick breakdown of this 3 part flow: 1. Earth Warrior Pose for grounding, clarity and strength. Focus on strong dynamic legs and stable base, feeling your centre like a plumbline from crown to tail to floor down the front of the spine. Front heel to rear instep alignment. Arms should feel light and expanded from the heart space. Soft but focused gaze straight ahead. 2.Triangle Pose for activating and radiating energy and abdominal organ and spinal health. The key here is again engaged thighs to protect the knees/hips and keeping spinal length..IT IS NOT A SIDE BEND, but a hip tilt. The energy is harnessed with the breath in the lower belly and radiates from this central core down the legs, up and down the spine, and up to the heart and out along the arms. 3. Half Moon Pose for courage and 'I can do this' attitude. Great to use a block and the wall for support as you begin. Go step by step: start by grounding the weight bearing leg, then reach for block, then lift back leg to horizontal with toes out to side, then stack hips, then rotate heart to side more, then arm up, then gaze to side....stopping at ANY step to groove SUCCESS not failure. When you find your expression of the pose extend out from your core in all directions like the STAR that you are! Have fun sistas...love to know the why and how behind your physical practices or your favourites!

  • Daily practices for adrenal fatigue

    For any of my dear friends who are struggling daily with energy levels and adrenal fatigue, this is for you: 3 restorative poses that need to be done daily to get you back on track. It often isn't enough to just rest and hope you'll feel better tomorrow. Your nervous system, adrenals and endocrine system need more support to restore. Self care is an active, intentional process, but once you take the action of commitment and routine, these restorative yoga poses are about as passive as you can get and still get huge results. Combined with intention and breath awareness they are even more potent bringing you from being caught up in the over wrought self (ego) to more deeply connected to the infinite Self (divine self). Each pose can be as little as 5 mins upwards and modified with pillows and cushions if you don't have a bolster.

  • What does this pose have to do with coherence?

    With my clients I talk a lot about coherence: Do you approach your physical care with the same foundations of intention as your emotional, mental wellbeing or regard for the planet and others? What are your fundamental beliefs and and how DO you integrate them coherently into your life. One of the core principles in yoga is ahimsa or do no harm. When it comes to physical practices I see time and time again, lack of body awareness facilitating micro strain that overtime can create serious physical (and therefore emotional/mental/energetic) imbalances. That's why I'm hot on training my clients to access their feeling, to centre in their bodies and move from their core. When you live, move and sustain from a centred place you gain stability, flexibilty and strength in all areas of your life....and the opposite is also true when you don't. Take this yoga pose. The one with the X is how this hip opener pose is often taught and yet you can see the loss of foundational support and twisting happening in the pelvic = ouch over time. The one with the tick practices ahimsa, both hips are supported in the pose without losing the effect of the stretch and maintaining a stable pelvis. Your body is a reflection of your life. How coherently are you living yours?

  • Counterposing - why and what implications does it have in life?

    Counterposing - why and what implications does it have in life? In yoga, counterposing is where you balance the effects of a pose by bringing in the opposite. In these pics taken during one of my classes below you can see this demonstrated. Each pose has a physiological, emotional and energetic effect. Without balancing these effects with your choice of poses, it can promote over-use injuries, instability and/or rigidity, emotional and energetic imbalance. A yoga class that leaves you feeling both calm and energised is how you know you've found the right balance. One of my yogis described it like this: "At other yoga classes I leave feeling relaxed, but after your classes I feel both a deep peace and the feeling that I can take on the world!" Counterposing has implications out in the world too. How much do you stay in the same lane in life?....physically, mentally and emotionally? Do you challenge yourself to explore outside your habitual patterns, the polarities and the edges of comfort and expression in all directions? It's not until we can embrace and inhabit our edges without feeling disturbed, that we can truly abide in our centre in PEACE. With deepest love Rebecca
