Becoming Whole podcast explores what it means to live a 'whole' life, where all parts of ourselves come together
- body, mind and spirit
Another solo episode from me this week. I’m talking about my journey to wholeness so far…..I delve into some of the big experiences that I’ve had that literally woke me up to see how I was the common denominator in all of things that weren’t working in my life. And so from this place I began my inner journey of discovery to uncover the areas that I was holding myself back – the thought patterns that weren’t serving me, the ways I was reacting to situations, the pressure I was placing on myself. By doing this I’ve been able to bring myself back to place of calm, of presence, acceptance, compassion and connectedness to my heart and intuition – to my wholeness.
So many of us are living solely from our heads, our logical thinking mind that we’ve forgotten how to listen to and build a relationship with the other parts of self – our bodies, hearts, intuition, soul. The head is often so focussed on getting more, on proving itself, of competition, planning, worrying, separation. Of course it can be an incredible tool if we use it right. But if we lead with the head and fail to connect with our hearts, with what’s real and authentic then we can become confused, we can lose ourselves in looking for things – material goods, relationships, food, work promotions to fill ourselves up, rather than finding that sense of wholeness within.
I’d love to hear from you. Let me know if my journey resonates with you and if you’ve had any ‘aha’ moments from listening to it.

In this episode I’m talking about one of the tools I use that has had a massive impact in my life and has helped many of my clients. I use this tool specifically for making decisions; whether to accept an opportunity, or how I’ll respond/interact via an email/a person.
The tool is looking at the decisions/choices/reactions we make and becoming aware of whether they are from a place of love and abundance or fear, lack, scarcity.
You see, these are the two energies always at play in life – love & fear. And how we behave, either from love or fear can have a huge impact on how we feel and how others feel. Here’s a couple of q’s to get started:
Of course, this is big stuff and the key here as you uncover these things, is to maintain a feeling of kindness to self and non judgement.
This work takes time and continued practice and lots of patience. But to raise your vibration in this way can have a multitude of positive effects. A Course in Miracles says that ‘A miracle is a change in perception’ and I couldn’t agree with this more.

In this episode I sit down with Octavio Salvado at his studio in Bali. Octavio is the co-founder, co-owner and principal teacher the The Practice in Canggu, Bali. He is an incredible teacher and teacher’s teacher sharing the hatha tantric yoga – a spiritual science designed to awaken us to our highest potential. Octavio teaches lineage based yoga, handed down from teacher to student for thousands of years in an unbroken chain of personal transmission.
Octavio says ‘I believe that when practiced correctly and with the right guidance and attitude, the potential for Yoga to deeply transform all aspects of our lives is limitless’
I first met Octavio 3 years ago and practiced his classes and was blown away by how I felt during the classes and afterwards. His knowledge and the way that he guides his classes is masterful and I found that they truly deliver to his message to assist in awakening. I felt more connected and aware following his classes.
Last month I had the absolute privilege of attending Octavio’s hatha tantric 50hr training as I continue to further my studies and it has helped me to understand the teachings from a truly embodies and felt experience. And of course while I was there I couldn’t pass on an opportunity to interview Octavio. If you’re a yogi and interested in delving into the deeper spiritual teachings then this is a must listen.

Her clinical practice based in Melbourne focuses on using herbal medicine, flower essences and ceremony as a gateway for healing, transformation, and empowerment.
