Tell Me Your Story

by Rhianna on June 24, 2014

I remember the precise moment I started to read. I was in grade 2 and there was a new book on the Silent Reading trolley about a dashing fox with 9 tails. Previously I had fought against reading, struggling over the words, wrestling with them one at a time; preferring to memorise a story and

Having dinner the other day with a friend of mine, we lamented over the labels that get attached to us over our life span. That morning I had stopped in at a healthy café and ordered a caffeine free chai on coconut milk. Very much taken in by their delicious looking bakery treats I asked

Bali Dreaming

by Rhianna on June 12, 2014

Last night I went to Bali. I awoke in an ornate wooden four poster bed, draped with a lattice of mosquito netting. Rising to slide the craved wooden door inwards, I walked outside and tasted the rich scent of incense on the air.  The grass was dewy damp and glistening like a field of perfect

It’s All About The Vibes, Man…

by Rhianna on June 10, 2014

Can you really affect other people just through the thoughts you think? Have you ever found yourself affected by other peoples thoughts or feelings? Have you ever ‘made’ something happen, just through an extreme desire? We really are far more powerful than most people think! An interesting event occurred for me yesterday that highlighted just

Finding the Time

by Rhianna on May 20, 2014

After a couple of busy weeks at work, unconsciously full weekends and the sun heading to bed by 6pm of an evening, I noticed I have been feeling like each day is just blurring into the next, whizzing past with no real rest in sight. Ever had that feeling? So much to do, so little

Walking Your Yellow Brick Road

by Rhianna on May 9, 2014

As often happens, I find a meme, decide to share it on our Embracing Health Facebook page (click here to follow us) and then get inspired to write a blog about the contents of that meme. Today is no different. Today I found a meme that is pictured below. For those who may not be

What’s Blocking Your Flow

by Rhianna on May 8, 2014

Just so you don’t get the wrong idea, this blog post isn’t about bowel movements, constipation or anything that might be happening in that area. Not today. What I am going to talk about today is the other kind of flow. Your universal flow. How you feel your life is going, your job, your relationships,

Leisa’s Diary #6; The Return of Malakai

by Leisa on April 30, 2014

The last week was a very difficult one for me… It had a happy ending, but the outcome was anything but assured. As with any event or incident in my life, I take the time to delve into the experience to see what I might be able to learn or gain from it. Not when in

Why Are You Doing What You Are Doing?

by Rhianna on April 7, 2014

On Friday I drove for over an hour to visit a monk (not exactly my usual Friday). In our hour and a half chat, he told me the same things that numerous practitioners and friends have been telling me for the last 10 years. Meditate more. Relax more. Take time out during your day to
