I'm deligthed to share that workplace wellbeing is on the up and up!
On Friday the 30th of June, Arise To Succeed launched their Breakfast Club at the Merrion Hotel, where we shared insights on focus with a special audience.
We called it 50 Shades of Focus.
It’s great to see how many organisations are interested in wellbeing and looking to develop new programmes, or compliment the initiatives they already have in place. Wellbeing is definitely a hot topic and we are delighted that we had a full house. We will be holding another breakfast event in early September and are inviting intrested parties. If you are involved in wellbeing in an organisation or know someone who is, please feel free to get in contact or pass on this invite.
What if you are your organisations' game changer?
There's never been a better time for us to chat.
We offer a fascinating and engaging number of talks, workshops, wellness days, team building experiences, wellbeing consultancy, classes and treatments!
All support has been gratefully appreciated and we look forward to sharing more events!

It’s been an emotional time meeting my birthday this year. And I understand why, I feel fucking amazing! So much focus on turning 40. The last time I remember this much emotion about a birthday was turning 30 when I had a 3 week sad lull at my age and achievements! Jeez it can be tough growing up!
As I headed towards this day the past few months I have felt an inner strength growing and my feet feeling more and more connected and supported by this beautiful planet. I feel like many parts of me are coming together, the full package is here! All the ingredients have steadily been assembled over the past 40 years and now I am fully standing here smiling, easy, likes it’s taken 40 years for an explosion to occur. I‘ve watched slowly and felt the pain of being blown apart and the beauty of coming back together again. Now I feel together, still human, still feeling emotions but together, and this is great!
The aging thing is mostly fine, but where did that time go!? Most people around me have a partner and children. I guess I would not have experienced what I have if I had.
And that is the big one I have found at this precious age. The pain of being the woman without child or partner. Of course I’ve had a partner, even a few! I also feel deep within a mother though I have no children of my own.
To be honest I felt an incredible sadness about this the day after my birthday and it surprised me. I am a happy woman, surely that is the point, if there is a point, which I’m beginning to think there is not, but if there was a point would it not be about quality of life rather than the children and partner checklist!?
To pine after what we don’t have is so not interesting. It feels not only a waste of energy but also boring and insulting to life that gifts us so much every day. Though sometimes I know it can feel so hard. I used to visit a friend who spent most of the time of our visit complaining no-one cared about them. They seemed oblivious to the fact they had someone who cared front of them. You know what I mean?
I’ve learned a lot about happiness and have worked with it on many levels the past 14 years. It led me to make my first ever real choice. 13 years ago I made a choice to be happy. I was feeling depressed, living in New Zealand at what should have been the happiest time of my life, great home, great location, great partner, basically had everything going for me…except a dark cloud! I was so busy doing what I thought were the right things to do, I had not ever stopped to ask myself really deep questions of what I personally wanted from life. And that’s where so much changed. The first choice I made back then was to be happy, how funny a well educated young woman had not realised till the depth of sadness was visited that happiness was a choice and that she had had power at the click of her fingers to make that choice! On wards it went as I moved through so many wonderfully amazing experiences while learning to navigate deep sad soul wrenching sadness! It took 5 years of intense self-work and cleansing on many levels to heal and stabalise myself in peace from that moment, though like Irish weather there were intermittent beautiful sunny spells in between thankfully. This is the standard story of most healers/artists, the shell(ego) has to crack for light to come through.
In the Chinese 5 elements we continually move through each element, all of life being composed of continuous cycles, short and long. So staying stagnant is never the way! Moving through, embracing change and however you feel is the way. Use these feelings, they have power!
To the timeless mind this way feels like an amazing journey and opportunity into wholeness.
Each of us are experiencing different aspects of the evolution of man, this is my journey.
So here I am; strong, knowing yet vulnerable, happy yet sometimes weary! Spiritual awakenings and energetic shifts can take time to integrate. It’s not a race but I‘ve learned it helps to have a purpose to each morning’s beginning. This is why I have spent years developing healing sessions, Meditation techniques and The Soul’s Goals Books to help other’s going through this shift.
Being 40 is cool. I feel like being more public with my work and sharing more openly. I welcome this and feel like there is such a magnificent path ahead. May we all find our magnificent paths regardless of money, children, partner or other outer details. May we touch and locate this true inner richness, the light, the inner spark and share it with each other, for is that not why we are here, for each other to raise ourselves and each other up? To enjoy connection with all? Time has taught me much. I have loved deeply and hurt deeply. I have journeyed in self-awareness and into the presence and realisation of Divinity and continue to. There is so much love, understanding, compassion, depth and more. I discovered the inner flame and integrated it through my entire being. Yes it’s taken a while but God is it powerful! And watch out because I’m going to use it! Remember evaluating your life on a Disney movie or someone else’s vision is bad for your health! There are no rules and we decide our own value! You are so valuable and wonderful, trust me. Do you love yourself as much as the most beautiful starry night!? Nice! We are here for each other. Let’s keep smiling and raising each other up. Xx
Here's my gift for you, enjoy and remember I love you this much and more Xx
Even though I can feel the change discussed below I can still feel love thankfully and wish you a very Happy 2016. There is a big wave arising at present offering great opportunity. Looking to see where the peak is; I see peaks at 2016, 2017, 2018, 2021, 2023, 2028, 2038, 2042 and onwards to the point that I'm not sure this is a wave that will go up and then down, rather it may just expand outwards like eternal concentric circles.

I've seen a potential dark four days in early January 2016. Sounds like a scary movie but it just's a transition from one chapter to another…
This is to remind us that it is not something to panic about even though it can feel that way when certain states of being we are familiar with seem to disappear.
Flirt with the possibility that life is supporting you and always working out for you. The dark days may be further magnified by the contrast of the bright lights, intensity and sensitivity of Christmas and New Year.
Expect a shift in your awareness to somewhere new. Go out and walk, do the obvious things that help you get through the days such as good food, sleep, movies, hugs, kindness towards others and simply breathing~
One of my favourite exercises is to:
1. List your questions- if you have any, then let go, the answers will arrive when the mind is healthy and open.
2. Breathing practise:
Inhale: feel your awareness focusing into a little light in the centre of the chest- Pause.
Exhale: tune into the space around the physical body. as you exhale imagine and feel the light and good energy in the heart space expand into the space surrounding the body- Pause.
Use the stomach muscles as a pump to inhale and exhale.
Repeat x 12. Practice morning, night and inbetween. This will help you feel more peaceful transition the void of the unknown.
Challenging moments can arise and depart with ease when you choose to let go and for example practice the above meditation.
The inner light strengthens. New ideas and energy flows. As far as cleaning out your cupboards, this will energetically bring light back into inner places. If you feel the call give it a go- for at least three days in a row. For the Northern Hemisphere; Enjoy and give yourself time over these next 6 – 8 weeks to rest, refuel, sleep and take it easy so that as spring arrives you’ll be ready and happy to embody the flow of increasing joy and energy.
For those in the Southern Hemisphere, enjoy too and thank you for embodying the light at this time xxx
Yes it is a wonderful time of year. Time to let go, relax, change, spend time with family, friends and whoever you like. The solstice, Christmas and New Year offer us the opportunity enjoy the pleasure of living a bit more and gift ourselves and those we love in some special way.
I've found myself drawn to more meaningful presents this year. Personal handmade jewelery,books, food, body oils, supplements and even a poem have made it in there for my dearest and nearest!

Hello dear friends and new comers to this site,
I've been feeling the winds of change and wished to connect in with you and share a few insights and experiences.
Four weeks ago I decided to go to Mallorca with some of my family for a holiday.
When I deliberate over a decision I usually get a firm yes or no, but not always, and that was the case when it came to this trip.
However, words from my brother swayed me, 'If you stay it will be the same , if you go you never know what might happen!.'
So off I jetted to a beautiful 5 star resort in the beautiful island of Mallorca with 11 members of my family. For those who don't know my past, I've a bit of a history with this gorgeous island having spending many childhood holidays there and even lived there for 9 months in 2011/2012.
So what happened~?
Well after one week of relaxing into the island I finally felt i'd let go, now as a fairy relaxed person I cannot tell you why it took this 'long' to feel this way, it just did. Then the muscle ache started! I came down with an intense virus.
I became reliant on painkillers every 4 - 8 hours though I have only taken maybe one in the previous 7 years!
Five days into it and it was at it's most intense. A voice had told me that it would clear by Friday and this was Thursday. Every cell in my body was awakened with pain and my head throbbed to the point of tears. I contacted three good friends and healers, one in New Zealand, one in Germany and one in Ireland explaining I was unwell and inviting and welcoming their healing energy. Fairly quickly I felt the saves of support coming in from these marvelous beings. Sensitivity has its benefits!
Even still I lay in bed late that night in knots of pain, it was only a few hours since my last pain killer and rather than take another I tried to bear the pain for a few hours more to go gently on my body. Out of nowhere the impulse came to sit up and meditate. I did and immediately all pain disappeared. I had been so heavily in pain that I could still feel my cells and body so sensitively, yet there was no pain. I sat there doing the basic breath; breath in feel the energy in the body, breath out; feel the energy in the body for a long time. After a few hours I felt like resting again and took the final pain killer and fell back to sleep. I woke up a few hours later, bed and body and clothes covered in sweat, but alive and well. I got out of bed, it was 9am and I never needed another pain killer again! Thank God!
While this process of pain/ illness was riding through my system I couldn't help but think that there was a reason for it and that it was somehow for my ultimate benefit. The word, 'defragmenting' came to me while meditating. I looked it up on google for any insights and found, 'to reorganise files thereby improving performance and space' and 'Since Jenny defragmented her computer, all her problems have gone!" This made me laugh and feel the lightness of the situation. I was defragmenting, fair enough, we don't have to understand everything like how electricity works and phone lines connect voices (though possibly you already do!?).
Am back from the holiday a few days now and I feel topsy turvy, I am going through a change in identity. This happens every now and then. The old identity breaks down and something new arises. What is arising is more of a feeling and vision, it is like smooth velvety flowing light. I'm just going with it, knowing that whenever I step into the mystery it always delivers me back better off before.
I know that I am not the only one going through changes and this is just a little reminder for us to go with it. Some days are strange, have this space and nothing urgent calling, these can feel disorientating. On these days I do the basis of staying well, a bit of exercise, good food and water and break it down to what to do next. Sometimes it feels like it makes very little difference what choice I make and other times it feels like a definite path is being shown. Today my intention is 'letting go'. I'm just going with it, letting go and knowing that all is working out perfectly however it looks or feels. I have a project I am working on and notice that when I ignore the project, forget about it or just keep prioritising other things, a restlessness arises. So from now on I am prioritising this project above all other things. Every morning, first thing it will get my attention. And as I work on it or even just breathe consciously I feel a recalibration occurring.
This letting go and coming back together again is of extreme importance for smooth transitioning in the new paradigm. If the brain gets stressed (because it wants to understand everything and it's unable to understand what is happening), I breathe and send it love. Love heals.
Sending love to yourself and others is the best way to transition these shifts, that and going for long walks, being in nature, sleeping, laughing, partying, enjoying good conversation, working on a creative project and whatever else comes to mind...!
Let's shift the focus from worry to taking steps each day to be kind to ourselves, others & allow and encourage ourselves to lighten up! After all that's what's happening, we are becoming lighter! Expressing, being and feeling more light!
As Einstein is quoted saying, 'the same brain that conceives a problem, cannot solve it!'
How have you been getting on this Summer? Are you noticing many shifts occurring? How are you dealing with them? I'd love to hear from you and post your insights if you are happy to share them. Peace & love friends, Orla

Love, peacefulness and light,
Looking forward to this,
The term highly sensitive person (HSP) is used to describe 10 - 20% of the population who are more sensitive than the average person.
This sensitivity can be seen externally in various ways:
- emotional, for example gets deeply upset from criticism
- physical, responds to certain foods with intolerance such as headaches, migraine, skin problems...
- mental, finds it hard to think in new company or certain vibes and environments, for example loud places or people can feel uncomfortable
In the link below there is an audio talk by specialist, Elaine Aron, on "highly sensitive people". It is a lovely talk and well worth the listen if this is a theme in your life or someone you know. Here is some of what she has to say:
Your trait is normal. It is found in 15 to 20% of the population–too many to be a disorder, but not enough to be well understood by the majority of those around you. It is innate. In fact, biologists have found it in over 100 species (and probably there are many more) from fruit flies, birds, and fish to dogs, cats, horses, and primates.
This trait reflects a certain type of survival strategy, being observant before acting. The brains of highly sensitive persons (HSPs) actually work a little differently than others'.You are more aware than others of subtleties. This is mainly because your brain processes information and reflects on it more deeply. So even if you wear glasses, for example, you see more than others by noticing more.
You are also more easily overwhelmed. If you notice everything, you are naturally going to be overstimulated when things are too intense, complex, chaotic, or novel for a long time.
This trait is not a new discovery, but it has been misunderstood. Because HSPs prefer to look before entering new situations, they are often called "shy." But shyness is learned, not innate. In fact, 30% of HSPs are extraverts, although the trait is often mislabeled as introversion. It has also been called inhibitedness, fearfulness, or neuroticism. Some HSPs behave in these ways, but it is not innate to do so and not the basic trait.
Sensitivity is valued differently in different cultures. In cultures where it is not valued, HSPs tend to have low self-esteem. They are told "don't be so sensitive" so that they feel abnormal.
I have been highly sensitive all my life. I have learned various ways to deal with this
from altering my diet, to meditation to changing my lifestyle to cleansing to spiritually awakening. It has been my crux and my guide and I am forever grateful.
This is an invite to anyone who resonates with this to meet in March and share our gifts, insights and create a nurturing and healthy environment where we can comfortably support each other and thrive. It is for people of all ages including children.
It will take form as a social morning from 11am to 1pm on Saturday the 28tth or March at Clifton House in Dublin City.
Share stories and your various ways of managing this beautiful state of being!
Please drop me a note or call and come along if this of interest :)
5- 15 euro donation or whatever feels right.
A friend in New Zealand, an amazing healer who I used to work with, Bernie Melhuish posted this picture recently. He is a spiritual healer who works throughout New Zealand, totally humble and yet respected and loved by so many.
A few weeks ago he did some art work, that is channeled, he starts and then gets guided...
here is one of his pics
Here is what I saw, Sun ~ Sirius ~ Earth in alignment. Crown chakra open. masculine and feminine coming into balance. 'Perfect imbalance in balance' meaning however you are/feel right now is perfect even if it feels askew, it is the observation of one state shifting into another. The masculine energy is shifting as we open to, accept and welcome the masculine energy into the heart. Looks like everything is lining up for some great super quantum shift ~ March 2015!
Here is the follow on:
Embracing the masculine energy.
I have spent years working with the Divine Feminine force, feeling it, embodying it, bowing to it and observing it. The divine feminine had indeed been arising through out the world, and today many women and men are embodying this. Hurray! But it's not over...
The Divine Masculine energy is shifting now and it's time for realignment within each of us has come. Of course many may be already in harmony with this energy and I am so glad of this. In my case and that of many I know it is currently happening- but what does this mean? Talking to a 'spiritual' male friend about the feminine and masculine roles in society, he said,
'The masculine role in society has not just been hard for women, it's also been hard for the men. Men have had to play to a role that for many didn't feel right, and maybe they didn't want to be that way. but there was little choice or room for understanding for them to behave in any other way, they had to fit in and 'be a man' to survive in society...'
Such clarity, that made so much sense and can be seen right through society, I could only bow and smile to this person.
In this picture the darkened circle on the lower right represents the Divine Masculine and the slight askewedness it has been experiencing on Earth. It is shifting though, a lot now and will continue over the next two years and as it comes more into alignment and people will find themselves changing in their belief structure, thoughts, words and actions regarding the masculine role. This will affect women as much as men as the Yin Yang reminds us that within each is the opposite. What we think of the male race, what we imagine the male role to be, in ourselves and others is all changing. I can not tell you how it will affect you, but expect revelations, insights and more peace. The only difficulty might be if you have resistance to this new energy, for example keep trying to to push your 'old' viewpoints and approach, and they will probably just collapse and not work any longer. I for one am so happy that we are at the dawning of this time. I have been guilty of great judgement up on the male role in society and I am sorry.
I am so happy to ease up on that now and attune to a more loving, respectful and kind way. I didn't even realise I had these judgments, I am by all means a fairly balanced and decent person(!!), but as I sat down and really opened to this, I feel so much more at ease, real, unafraid and open. I feel happier and am enjoying the opportunity this gives to be really kind to the masculine role, supportive and see what happens. The heart is expanding and that is something wonderful to celebrate! I've outgrown my old self, and I truly believe this shift is a cosmic one that is affecting all on Earth at this time. Even the masculine in me is shifting and I am so happy. I went out today and as a matter of necessity, 'the mother of invention,' I broke down a load of wood for my fire and stacked it up in the house. One small feat for man one massive leap for this woman! I am so thankful for this expansion, this opportunity we are all being blessed with. May we embrace both the masculine and feminine energies in ourselves and others, giving each the space to be perfectly as we are. May we expand in peace, acceptance, understanding, compassion, consciousness and joy!
