I’m Back! Here’s A Snapshot of My Savasana Week
Best Decision Ever! I feel so recharged after my week-long blog savasana that any weird guilt I created for myself totally dissipated as soon as I felt the relief that came along with mental space. Ah, space … I don’t know why I’ve resisted you for so long. I cleaned, I cleared, I de-cluttered, I culled, and I made room for all of the brilliance I know the universe has in store for me. I now totally get that we won’t attract everything that is meant for us unless we clear out the old to make room for the shiny and new.
THIS IS WHAT I DID …
+ Cleared out my bookshelf and cleaned my desk.
+ Wrote fun blog posts.
+ Worked on The Lifestyle Transformation Guide.
+ Drank green smoothies on the grass.
+ Made chocolate.
110g raw almonds
170g coconut oil (solid)
4 tbs cacao
A handful of medjool dates, chopped
¼ cup maple syrup (or more if you like it sweet)
1. Line a baking dish with non-stick paper. Place in the freezer to chill while you mix up the ingredients.
2. Grind almonds in a blender or food processor until they are fairly fine (not a powder though).
3. Melt coconut oil in a saucepan over gentle heat (don’t let it get too hot).
4. Remove from heat and stir in the cacao, almonds, dates and maple syrup.
5. Pour the mixture into the dish, making sure it spreads out thinly and evenly.
6. Put into the freezer until it has set, and then keep in the freezer between pig outs.
+ Watched a lot of Revenge.
+ Listened to Ben Howard. His cover of Call Me Maybe is so good.
+ And then rounded off the week with a visit to my friend Nicola Chatham. We ate lunch and drank tea with herbs from her organic garden, and hung out in her gorgeous country home. The teas were brewed with fresh mint and pineapple sage, and Nic introduced me to an amazing leafy green called sorrel. So tasty, so zesty, and so much yummier than any other salad green I’ve eaten!
AND TO REWARD ME FOR MAKING SPACE …
Right on cue, something new entered my life. Two exciting opportunities came to me a couple of days into my savasana. I’m not able give away details just yet, but I promise to as soon as I can.
WANNA SEE ME SPEAK?
If you’re in Brisbane on 3rd of October, come along and see me speak at the Pure Living Workshop. I will be joining Cyndi O’Meara, Therese Kerr (Miranda’s mama) and Dr Libby Weaver on stage to talk about how cool (and beneficial) it is to live a pure and clean life. Click here for ticket info.
Did you have a nice week while I was away? Did you create space in your life too?
Positive affirmation for the day: I love the life I am creating for myself.
