Is It Time for You to Ignite?

I love being a Hay House author and am thrilled that they organise such amazing events to showcase their new books and the awesome talent that is the Hay House family. In addition to the ‘I Can Do It’ conference they now host yearly the ‘Ignite’ conference, this is to showcase the people they believe are the new voices in spirituality and wellness, for a day that will motivate and fulfil you, mind, body and soul.

It was a fabulous line up of speakers including Rebecca Campbell, Mel Wells, Sandy Newbigging, Beth Kempton and Sonia Choquette and all held in the lovely Tuke Hall Theatre at Regents Hall Campus in Regents park.
So, a whizz through ‘review’ and some of the highlights for me…

9781401951894_500h
The day kicked off with Rebecca Campbell of ‘Rise Sister Rise’ fame, Rebecca did several meditations, led us in chanting and asked us many times to ‘breathe in…and out’. She talked us through the seasons and urged us to find the direction of our ‘souls calling’, to surrender, to dance with the universe and she taught us a cool ‘aerobic’ workout connecting ‘heaven, heart, earth’. Rebecca believes it’s fear that holds us back, and she suggests we ask ourselves a very powerful question, ‘If I wasn’t afraid, what would I do? Scary isn’t it. The answer is your soul’s calling.

Mel Wells author of ‘The Goddess Revolution’ and Food and Body Freedom expert, spoke of our relationship with food, because just as we have a relationship with money, time, nature et al we sure as heck do have a relationship with food, and usually it’s based on our long-held beliefs and expectations and if it’s a ‘poor’ relationship that is a reflection on our relationship with ourselves. Mel had her own journey and battle with food, with eating disorders and a seriously skewed pattern of behavior. Now she teaches nutrition mindset and awareness and encourages us above all to make the choice to love ourselves, Mel suggests we ask ourselves…’What’s the most loving thing I can do for you, Janey?’

And be prepared to listen. I also love the way she suggests we talk to our body, thank it for all it does for us, adorn it, decorate it and recognize that our body is our home. This really resonated with me having heard many years ago, about the documentary where a film crew were following homeless people in London, they came across one guy who despite living constantly on the streets looked vibrant and healthy, they asked him how come and he explained that he eschewed the drink and drugs so synonymous with the homeless and ate only healthy food. He went to the markets and collected the leftover fruit and veg, he went to the fish restaurants as they were closing and asked for any uneaten pieces.

When they asked him why it was so important to him his answer was…

‘If I don’t look after my body I’ll have nowhere to live’. The same is true for all of us of course, but we get so caught up in our homes, our castles, our workspaces, we forget to really nourish, honour and cherish the one ‘home’ that is truly irreplaceable.

I’ve heard Sandy Newbigging speak several times before and interviewed him for Hay House Radio, he is a modern-day monk and has some wonderful insights. The new book ‘Calm Cure’ isn’t out yet but he gave us a taster. Sandy taught us that life is happening on a spectrum of possibilities, and urged us to attempt to get peace with our full range of emotions.

Beth Kempton author of ‘How to Live More, Worry Less and Do What You Love’ asked us to try and recall a time when we felt free, she believes we all have a choice but many of us have literally created a kind of ‘cage’ and locked ourselves in, We need to ask ourselves where is the door, the lock, the key – to our freedom?
Charlie Morley gave us some cool tips for lucid dreaming and Carrie Green gave us some tips to become an entrepreneur, Sonia Choquette? Well Sonia made us DANCE!!!

Hay House promised…’You will learn exercises and techniques that will stay with you throughout your life journey as you expand your mind, free your spirit, nurture your body and nourish your soul’.

No false claims there then, today I’m working on a vision board, yet again, reassessing my goals and ‘time management’ and accepting that just because I feel down sometimes, I do have choices and it’s all part of the journey. Charlie Morley said something quite profound…along the lines of nothing grows without the fertiliser. I think he said something along the lines of …‘We need the shit for the blooms to flourish…I get that’

Janey Lee Grace is hosting a series of Hay House UK Radio Shows including an interview with Beth Kempton from April 2017  – www.hayhouse.com

Celebrating International Happiness Day with Janet Jones, The Happiness Millionaire

We live with so much stress, anxiety, and fear and sometimes it’s tricky to find the right focus to be able to make the choices that will bring us more happiness.

Doing things for others is said to be a great route to happiness. Giving our time and energy builds stronger connections making others happy and in turn making us feel good.

Janet Jones is The Happiness Millionaire, a leading breakthrough and happiness expert in the UK, and it was whilst writing her new book ‘Happiness Millionaire: Positive Images for a R.I.C.H and Powerful LIFE’ that she discovered the science behind the power of images and how what we see can either take our life along a happy and successful route or down a devastating route.

Knowing the power of images, Janet has created thirteen images that represent a time-tested system to happiness and success. She has shared her unique images with audiences across Europe and the Far East and is changing lives, helping people break through difficult times, double their income, overcome depression, start businesses and live a fulfilling life true to them.

Here are some of Janet’s tips..

If you are loved by someone celebrate that.

If you live in a peaceful country be grateful every day. There are people in the world who are starving and dying in war torn countries. They would love to live in peace.

If someone said thank you to you today, smile, you were noticed for your kindness and that is proven, by genuine science, to create lasting happiness.

It is a complete miracle that any of us exist at all and I believe that is the greatest celebration for every day of the year, for life.

The Things You Can See Only When you Slow Down

I am so lucky to work on BBC Radio 2, we get to interview some amazing people and its so varied, in recent weeks we have interviewed top Hollywood celebs, pop stars, sports pundits, leading authors …oh and one of my faves..a Zen Buddhist monk.

monk-img_0033Haemin Sunim is one of the most influential Zen Buddhist teachers and writers in South Korea, where his books have sold more than three million copies and are popular as guides not only to mediation but also to overcoming the challenges of everyday life. The book came about because he was often asked for advice on dealing with the challenges of life, he started to share his wisdom with a wider audience using social media (he has 1.2 million Twitter followers) and embracing his nickname The Healing Mentor he has produced this beautifully illustrated, guide to mindfulness, Haemin Sunim, offering spiritual advice on everything from handling setbacks at work to dealing with love and relationships.

Speaking directly to the anxieties that have become part of modern life, Haemin Sunim’s simple, compassionate teachings transcend religion, borders and ages, and serve as a calming reminder of the strength and joy that come from slowing down.  The chapters are Rest, Mindfulness, Passion, Relationships, Spirituality, Love, Life and the Future.  The illustrations, often simple but striking are by korean artist Youngcheol Lee

‘The world moves fast, but that doesn’t mean we have to’ is the key message and when we asked him ..What about someone who has lots of commitments, is rushing around and doesn’t have the time to stop, to meditate et al, his answer was “Have you got 10 seconds?”  (yes) ” Then just smile”

Its great advice written simply and with gentle humour, I love the fact that the book is very dipp-inable

As I was writing an article in connection with my book You are The Brand, I opened up a page in the Love chapter where it said

You are Beautiful

not because you are better than others

but because there is only you who can smile like that

may you fall in love with your unique self

…..I couldn’t have put it better myself.

The Things You Can See Only When you Slow Down by Haemin Sunim is out now published by Penguin in hardback
