Life according to me, in thought and action……

Living life according to me in thoughts and actions looks and feels something like this;

  • I try to keep everything simple, but when I want to achieve something, I do it with all my heart! That sometimes, goes awry.
  • I am a over-thinker. Letting the truth, be told I have 100s of imaginary scenario playing in my head  at any one time….sometimes this makes situations more difficult than it should be but well this is how I am and it’s how I make the magic happen.
  • Health and life issues will always challenge me, as I aren’t someone who keep things to themselves anymore. I used to hold it all inside until I became toxic to anyone or anything, now I will confront the challenges head on, till I am facing back in the right direction. I am real and raw and that’s not always easy, but it’s the difficult times that push me back through to better days. Although I know life can’t be perfect, it’s the want of perfection that makes think a lot which at times causes the challenges that mess up particular situations.
  • I am one of the best listeners. I can listen to others stories all day, everyday and I  will listen to every story with keen interest even if it’s about something I don’t understand. I know the importance of listening and I want others to reciprocate that.

So this is me and this is how I wander the shores of the globe preaching and teaching about my experiences and beliefs. It may not be normal, but what is normal anyway!

Much love

Our lives are perfect, just the way they are….📸🎞📸

So over this last week, I have had to stop. I’ve had to stop because the dreaded winter cold and flu caught and tagged me. With this downtime I started to think about how many of us are addicted with the best and beautiful people in social media……you know the one’s, fit tanned bodies, beautiful children, perfectly clean and styled homes. 
WHY………

Well in my opinion when we scroll, we compare ourselves to the beautiful and seemingly perfect social media photos and posts…..you know, all the tanned fit bodies, perfect children, perfectly cleaned and styled homes. Nothing is amiss…….as we scroll we hate them a little, but we also love to stalk on their perfect lives……wishing and dreaming that our lives were also that perfect, so we could be that happy too! 
BUT DID YOU KNOW, THAT YOU’RE WRONG……about your life! 
Our lives are already perfect……
Everything that we have right now has been created by US and WE have the power to love what we have OR to make the changes to get what we want.

What we see on social media, is that “grass is greener, on the other side” ideology. That perfect social media life that we think is out there is not going to make us happy. Because that life is someone else’s life. Yes, sure let’s follow, like and be inspired by what we see….but how about we stop wasting time wishing we had what these other people have  and really, truly create our own amazing journey of life…..because that’s exactly what we all have.

If you follow me on social media…..you will find raw, real and authentic me. I want to show the world what it’s really like…..no glitz…..no glammer but yet how I can live a damn amazing life.

Can’t see through the maze of what’s on social media and reality……let me help you break down some of the walls so you too can see that your life can be just as amazing, or perhaps better than those social media faves, that you currently stalk. Email me at harmonishakti@gmail.com and “let’s make life shine with amazement”.

Let’s also connect on social media if we haven’t already here;

Just Let Go Of That Rope….

Living with chronic illness, feels as like you are holding onto a rope that’s going to give way at any given moment! Everything that you know is connected to that rope and god forbid if you and it were seperated!  So if you were to let go of that rope and you and everything you had ever known suddenly went splat – what would happen! HARSH! Well, yes but I am saying it because that was me! I had been holding on to a rope for fifteen or more years thinking that it was going to save me! The tighter I held onto myself, the harder it was to actually hold on and the worse I was becoming in health in its entirety! I was not myself in any shape or form……

MY ROPE SNAPPED……was I dead, no! I fell, not from grace not in anyone’s eyes except for my own! What happened, when I fell, was the fall that I needed. It awakened me to the fact, that the rope was keeping me stuck in pain and not just physical pain, but emotional, mental and spiritual pain! If you are reading this and you’ve been in this position or perhaps you are in this position, you know that this pain ties you up in knots and creates behaviours that are less than ideal. Holding onto that rope was taking from you, all that you were, all that you are and possibly all that you could be!!!

LET GO OF THAT ROPE! I beg you, SO WHAT IF YOU FALL! Better that you fall flat on your face, than you destroy what you are and what you could be….

When you fall, you seperate yourself from that rope. You give yourself freedom, you give yourself a breath of real air that you haven’t felt for so long! You are now free to wander in search of what you need to heal truly. I ask you, after you’ve read this to take a few moments to write a list of ‘what you are holding onto’ and then respond to each one of your answers with this question, ‘ what would happen if I let it all go’? Be totally honest!

I did this and wow what I was holding onto was fucking BS – they were excuses, they were all excuses held together by fear! Simply, everything that had happened to me years prior had been squeezing me so tightly, that stress had created  a fear ball of me! That fear made me so ill and those illnesses were my rope!

The rope needed to snap, so that I could heal! I couldn’t continue to live that way! Slowly and continuously, I began to heal. I started by being able to sit, then I could stand and walk. My personal next goal  is to scream and shout my way across the globe , telling anyone who wants to listen about my glorious life – because that’s what it is! My life is no longer wrapped in bandaids, it’s now a life open and celebrating the scars being free to be me just as I am!

To each one of you, living with or in mental, physical, emotional and spiritual pain….you don’t need to live like this; PLEASE LET GO and LET YOURSELF FALL. The gentle arms of life will catch you and teach you again to sit, stand, walk and talk about being free to be you!

If you are still afraid to let go….email me at harmonishakti@gmail.com

Easter Sunday – The resurrection and awakening of my feelings and emotions.

If you are a regular follower or reader to my blog…..my journey across life, you would see that I’ve been MIA! Oh wow, so many things are happening! My chronic illness awareness foundation is being created, my book is ever so close to being published, my documentary style film is in production and that’s just the start….So yes I’ve been busy, but through all of it, I’ve kept thinking of when my chronic pain and suffering was at its worst!

So yes memories have brought me back to this clean blog page!


It was Easter Sunday yesterday and I had a wonderful day! I thought the day would be hard with a certain person missing – YES, there were memories but I also know it wasn’t my idea to walk away!

Let me tell you, being an intuitive empath and one little lady with small feet and a big heart, that is very sensitive to energies and experiences that these circumstances bring up, is difficult, very difficult! But I’ve chosen a new lifestyle, one built upon foundations that are made up of healthy choices, organic choices – NOT one that blocks my emotions and feelings with alcohol and the abundantly prescribed painkilling substances.


I love that I can now catch my feelings and my emotions not as I used to, but in a way that allows me to continue my healing journey for me. In healing me, I am able to heal so many others and that allows me to peel back even more layers and open up chapters that are ready to be written. I have the key to living my most authentic life and it’s because I now have true  self love and self worth. It’s something that I had to learn across this my journey as I had never known it. 


But, god damn it, I have it because I chose to do the work – EVERYDAY & EVERYNIGHT!  It’s been a long apprenticeship but I took on the work, going deeper when I needed it and I still do – EVERYDAY & EVERYNIGHT! WHY, did I do this, well simply because it was necessary to heal all of me, all of my mind, body and spirit.

So memories, they will come and go, like people that will come and go – it’s all part of the journey!

I am just so very lucky that everyday, I get to live with clear eyes and a bright heart now walking the journey of life that I was meant to!

Stepping from illness to healthy my way!

Let me tell you, bringing back an exercise regime after such a long journey with chronic illness is sought with so much fear and anxiety. But, if I want to have the life that is filled with effervescent energy and clean health, I need to be starting again with rebuilding inner & outer health. So, i have got to do this properly and appropriately. I think bringing an exercise regime will help my body to heal faster physically and allow me to feel so much better  mentally, thus continuing to move forward with my dreams for the future.  But, thinking about this new journey, I also know how important it is to know the limitations that I have as it’s been a very long time since I’ve had fitness incorporated into my everyday. By increasing my activity slowly and with fierce patience, I hope I will be going to avoid injury and get back to a optimum state of health and fitness. Also this new regime will be done by working with my many doctors and rehabilitation specialists particularly my OT (occupational therapist) , NeuroPhysio and my yoga mentors. 


To resume and start this fitness regime after so long I need to make specific precautions to ensure that everything will be ok.

So where do I begin in making my plan;

  • First and foremost my steps to increasing physical therapy is by continual consultations with my doctors, therapists and mentors. The best thing i can do, as I start this exercise plan after being sick for so long is to talk continuously with my team of health professionals as a balancing tool of advocacy. 
  • The next point of call and important factors to remember are to recognise symptoms before and after any exercise I do. Knowing when to keep going or when to stop and seek attention is one action that most causes me some anxiety, but I also know that the thoughts are there because I haven’t done this in a long while.

Acknowledging that I am starting over is vital and no matter how healthy I was before becoming sick , this journey has taken a toll on my body. My bones, muscles and joints are all weaker than before and my stamina and endurance is much lower. Reminder to self – this is normal! Keep telling myself that I am starting over, like it’s my first ever time exercising. I think preparing myself mentally to start slow, will allow myself to increase my activity more and more overtime and will ensure my patience stays strong. I can and I will get fit, it is just going to take time.
One major thing I must remember is that my immune system has been compromised from my many complex conditions, so ensuring I can heal and overcome my illnesses in total means I cannot overwork my body. I know when I overwork myself, I feel unwell for at least the next day or maybe more.

In order for me to be successful with this regime, I need to plan ahead with making goals;

  1.  I will make my goals each week and write them down, so I will be more likely to achieve them – accountability is everything!
  2. I will write down my main goal, and then add smaller goals for one week, only, increasing to two weeks and a month as I progress. 
  3. I need to remember to be realistic and specific in my goals. 
  4. After each exercise session I will write down my accomplishments as a marker to see how far I am moving forward.

Most of all I, need to stay motivated by working to my weekly goals and exercise plans. Because this is a new journey in a while, there are going to be challenging times so working with my team will help me find a success.


So let me begin now by listening to my body. From yoga to cardio, if I can only exercise for 30 minutes each time, because I am feeling exhausted, that’s okay! Be proud of what I achieve in that session.  The most important goal for me, is to be always slightly outside of my comfort zone, without being in pain or having symptoms return. I’ve been ill for a long time, so even walking is a challenge, but with the help of my walker I will progress. I am in a position now, where I can begin. So I am starting small, even getting up to check the mailbox or a lap of the clothesline is a session. Then each day I will slowly and gradually increase the cardio and strength activity using the exercises mapped out by my neurophysio and remembering to incorporate mindfulness with yoga and meditation into each day.

I hope, if you are reading this I may have inspired you to think about starting or restarting a fitness regime after a long journey with illness. If you are able to start, believe me you will not regret the decision as despite the challenges it empowers and awakens mind and body and brings a new level of healing. Just, please make sure you have a wonderful team around you. 

Also remember I am on social media, and I would love for you to come and say hi on any of these channels;

Dancing Through The Storm Of Life……

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain”


This quote is probably my most favourite quote in the whole damn universe, as it so clearly breathes an accent built on living, not just waiting for the right time to start or restart the exact life path for ourselves. I see so many people just waiting for that right moment! When is that right moment anyway?
I love how the quote speaks about not avoiding the storm but yet continuing despite the rain and doing what you most want to do. Waiting  for that storm, the not so nice conditions just makes time pass, BUT seriously what gets done while you wait?  Nothing – absolutely nothing gets done while we wait.


Learning to dance in the rain, with the noise and all of the mess that life can bring, helps us in a weird way to enjoy the continuing storms that come and go in our forwarding journey.So being able to dance and enjoy life, no matter what the conditions bring, is vital for our mind, body & souls health. We all face storms in our lives and it’s up to us, individually on how we will respond to the challenging noise and mess that it brings. Will we hide, waiting for the storm to pass, or will we continue with moving forward in our lives, stepping across even the most dark and dangerous weather conditions. We need to make a choice?.

The quote calls it waiting, but I call it wasting time!  What is happening by waiting, is that we and our life is just drifting across space and that does nothing to move us forward to a life that wants and needs to be lived .

Rather than, losing that time that can’t ever come back we are better off taking action. Which is why, in analogy terms, its just best to step out from the shelter and into the storm and just get soaking wet. By being out in the middle of the rain, it’s vital that we learn to dance in the midst of those storm clouds, so at very least we can do is, attempt to fix the problem that’s causing all the rain. As another quote, quite clearly says, “ rain, hail or shine – life goes on & so must I “. Saying that we are dancing  in the rain is enjoyable isn’t exactly true but it is showing that we are doing something, and even if it is not the best time, or with the best  weather, we are making the most of a troubling time by trying something different and that is enjoyable in again a strange kind of way.

So in my opinion, choosing to wait for the storm to pass, is equivalent to letting opportunities slip by.  I know for sure, that I have hidden from some massive storms and left chances of working with people and or opportunities slip past me. I choose not to do that anymore, as I don’t want to leave anything hanging on a woulda, coulda, shoulda hook anymore. Life is worth chancing and if it means standing or dancing out in the rain, hail or sleet I will do it.  For you reading this now, how many storms are you hiding from? While we all have our reasons and or excuses, because i did too, in the end, we either are doing things or we are not doing things, it’s our own choice.

Our life is our life, we can choose to be miserable or happy!  I know what I choose, what will you choose – dancing in the rain, or waiting for the continuing storm to pass?

I hope you’ve enjoyed these rambled collection of words – if you have please like & share.

Wandering Towards Wellness, Globally “

As the rambles continue…..

You know those days & even when you live a clean and free life , you will have them……don’t squash them in – let them out…… rant them, cry them, scream them……

Shadows that scream when I’m alone EVEN when I’m not alone….ahhhh yes it’s just that I’ve got a migraine! It’s the internal war that rages behind my face and above my throat!My pain will be up, down, and sideways!

BUT let it be said what the headache represents is me defending in suspense!

It’s me suspended in a defenseless test!

Being tested by a ruthless universe examiner !

One moment of weakness , doesn’t mean you’ve failed, it doesn’t mean you’ve been defeated- it’s you stopping to rest, stopping to restore! Let that headache, that migraine heal and tomorrow you will be strong again! You will stand and you will conquer!
