Describe a typical day for you?
It has become a habit for me to start every day with an intention. Before I open my eyes I silently state: I am the imaginer, creator, explorer and consumer of this day. What kind of emotions and experiences do I want to fill it with?
For me, this is a way to consciously create a framework for the day. Setting a clear intention could be something like this:
Today I will focus on solutions and find my flow in everything I do.
Verbalising an intention is the same as allowing my free will to speak and the Universe loves that. I do what I have on my schedule, but with a clear intention, my actions become aligned with my purpose and source. Being in tune with my higher self affects my view of everything “good” or “bad” I encounter during the day.
Before I go to sleep at night I give thanks for all the experiences of the day.
In between setting my intention and expressing my gratitude, I spend time with my family – I love, I laugh and I enjoy my being. I explore the polarities of this reality and I write. A lot.
What do you feel are your biggest achievements?
Besides co-creating a beautiful reality with my husband and mothering my son I would say:
Finding my silent inner voice and allowing it to speak. Loudly.
Choosing to share my thoughts and truths with others through my book – #KnowTheTruth – Why Knowing Who You Are Changes Everything.

What’s in your handbag?
I’m a bit like Hermione – my handbag is miraculously always filled with exactly the things I need in any given situation. When my son was little, it was filled with his toys. Now I always have my iPad, phone, lip gloss, keys and a rosary given to me by my late mother-in-law. I do not confess myself to any specific religion but I love the feel of it in my hand. It gives me a sense that she is with me all the time.
What are your ambitions in life?
To enjoy every moment of my being here on earth. To the fullest. And to savour every bit of physical reality my spirit encounters while I ponder on where apples, thoughts and clouds come from. I have a son and I want him to live in a better world than the world I was born into. I want to share my truths about this reality and help as many people as I can to remember how powerful, beautiful and unique we all truly are and as an extension of that, raise our collective consciousness. Noting less. Noting more. Just that.
What do you wish you’d known at the start of your career you now know?
Never to lose myself in the jungles of the grown-up world. If I were to give my younger self advice it would be:
Explore your truths – trust what you find. Don’t take anything personally – release and let go. Always go with your flow – relax and enjoy life more.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
Time is a funny concept to me and I am not a big fan of planning, so I will answer this question the only way I can – I see myself doing what I love and loving what I do. Simply put, in “5 years” I am an updated and expanded version of what I am right now. I am surrounded with beings I love and I am writing books, sharing my thoughts with the world.
What advice would you give a budding author?
Stay true to yourself, no matter what. Never give up, no matter what. Write through you heart, no matter what. When you do what you love, abundance always finds a way to find YOU.
What do you wish you’d known about motherhood before having kids?
How immensely illuminating, wonderful, fun, exhausting, marvellous, stressful, exhilarating and joyous motherhood can be. If I would have known this, I would have started earlier allowing more beautiful children to enter this world through me.
Children are amazing teachers when we are open to their creative explorations of the physical reality. Somehow time stops and space takes on magical properties in their presence. Sharing time with my son always allows me glimpses of the magic behind the ‘real’ world. Mothering my son, I found my true self.
Finally, happiness is…
…an inside job. And it requires presence – your presence. No one else can make you happy. You are responsible for your own happiness. We all are.
I am my best self and most happy when I share love with my son and my husband and I find utter joy in the funny rush of excitement every time my thoughts reach someone’s open mind and ignite an inner light.
