Goddess Interview Goodness

Hola gorgeous Goddess!

There’s been interviews a-plenty happening around Goddess Leonie land lately. Get your fun interview goddess on… and buckle in for some gorgeous adventure rides! 🙂

Because pictures are fun

Liz who I adore asked me to participate in her “nine” series of photo-interviews. I happily agreed. You can check out the Nine series here. Mine should be up now!

P is for P-lope

The very lovely Penelope from Penelope Illustration interviewed me about the Making Space for your Goddess to Shine e-course. You can read the interview here. She asks the hard hitting questions like “How is this different from the other books/courses/readings on decluttering?” (Since I’ve read most of them in my own attempt to de the clutter, I’m well qualified to answer this. hee hee hee)

Video Interview with Hip Tranquil Chick

I adore Kimberly Wilson, author of Hip Tranquil Chick & inspiring yogi/teacher/activist/desiger/anything she sets her eye too.

It was totally lovely to do this vodcast interview with her. You can read more here or watch the below video.

Spirit Self

The wonderful Jessica of Spirit Self also did a tangy delicious interview with me. My favourite question of hers: By using your intuition rather than logic, what three words symbolize and embody land creatures?

You can read the whole interview here.

The important thing…

to remember today is…

wherever you are

whatever you are doing

you are needed, loved, important, precious & sacred.

There’s only one Goddess you.

Big love you,

Today’s post is a little something different. It’s a *gasp* recipe. One of those recipes I eat all the time and I get asked for the recipe for all the time.

It’s my own Radiantly Raw Rainbow Salad.

Why Radiantly Raw?

I dabble in raw-ness. I’m not full time yet. I’m still as flexitarian as they come. But whenever I *do* eat rawly goodness, I feel radiant.

Funny that. Eating nature’s bounty, just as it was meant to be? What a novel way to eat!

Try this baby out, and let me know what you think 🙂

Servings: Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

½ Red/purple cabbage, chopped
½ Green cabbage, chopped
3 carrots, grated
½ cup macadamia nuts
¼ cup pine nuts
3 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon garlic, crushed
¼ cup olive oil
1 cup green leafies (i.e. rocket or spinach leaves)
1 teaspoon vegetable stock


Preparation:

Combine cabbages, carrots and green leafies

Put in a blender macadamia nuts, pine nuts, vegetable stock, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil. Add a splash of water. Blend till smooth. Test seasoning.


Serve nut mayonnaise over leafies.

Wa-la! Delicious rainbow salad!

It’s a feast for the eyes & ze belly!

Keep on nourishing you,

You=delicious.

big love,

Goddess Guidebook Update!

Hola gorgeous Goddesses!

Here’s the post I’ll let you know all the gorgeous things that are happening at Goddess Guidebook & all the ways you can join in if you are called. It’s my great big dream to be a full-time Goddess, so these updates are a way for you to watch along on the journey of me creating, developing & managing a spirited-business that supports that. I’m already halfway there, and it’s been the most exciting, big-lesson journey I’ve ever made (apart from life, love and spirit journeys, that is!)

1.} July Sponsorship opportunities

I only have five blogvertising spots left at GoddessGuidebook.com for July. If you’d like to be one of them, check out the info & book your spot over here.

I’d love to help you share your wonderful work with all the goddesses here!

2.} Coaching & custom art

I am currently booked out of coaching & custom art spots for the month of July. If you’d like to be on the wait list, please just email me dearheart.

I really adore doing both of these things… it’s just so important to me to also have some beautiful balance in my life, especially as my business grows. It’s exciting times!

3.} Making Space for your Goddess to Shine

It’s been an amazing first week on the divine decluttering e-course. I so adore the emails we are getting in from the 100+ gorgeous goddesses around the globe who are making space for themselves to shine. There are miracles happening. Big ones, small ones, ones of the heart, ones of the big-dreaming. Just incredible. I’m always amazed at the power of this work, and just how much it can transform our lives.

Due to wild-popular demand, the e-course will be run again on July 15. There were so many goddesses wanting to do the course, but couldn’t for other timing commitments, so hopefully this next enrollment intake should help. If you’d like more info and to enrol, just pop on over to www.DeclutterGoddesses.com. Yay!

4.} Creative! Goddess!

Which brings me to my next exciting course-ness goodness! It’s been over six months since the last Creative Goddess e-course. I get emails every.single.week. from precious Goddesses asking when they will be able to enrol in it as part of a circle. So here’s a little whisper: Probably August. Probably. It’s a completely blow-your-mind-and-spirit amazing transformative sacred creative e-course, and it’s a really huge energy investment for me… but August. Hopefully!

5.} Whisper Whisper

I’m writing. An ebook. Well, I’m writing three. But the one that has had the most lavish love and attention is something a bit special. And very close to my heart.

A Goddess Guide to creating your own womens circle.

#whisperwhisperwhisper#

I feel very shy about telling anyone about this.

But I’ll tell you as a secret. Please don’t tell anyone else. I tell you because I like you best.

#blush#

Okly dokly!

So that’s where the HMAS Goddess Guidebook is sailing at the moment. I’m so excited to have you along on this journey of making our lives as shining, creative, joyful and soulful as possible. It’s an epic quest, and I think we are just the Goddesses for the job. 🙂

Reminder

You are so important.

We need your gifts in this world.

Whatever flavour of Goddess you are is *exactly* the perfect thing for what we need.

Big love you,




Top 10 Spiritual movies

Hola gorgeous Goddesses!

Today is a berry special post… my top ten all-time favourite spiritual movies. As chosen by a select jury of critics-who-aren’t-very-critical – namely me, myself and I. Oh, and God Chris too. Because that man is just all flavours of wise+awesome. (+hot, but that’s not what this post is about!)

 

1. You can heal your life

Me and my darling friend Sone went to the Australian premiere of You can heal your life. We wanted to meet Louise Hays and see what she is really like. It ended up being a completely magical day – I ended up spending time with and photographing the incredible author & oracle card creator Lucy Cavendish before scooting across the city to meet Sone and get our Louise on.

I ended up being dropped at the wrong end of the harbour, so Sydney dock-goers got to witness a very special sight: me hitching up my long blue hippy skirt & legging it down the docks, blonde hair streaming before me. I got there in time – just – to see Sone grinning at me from the line, and the cinema on the harbour all lit up with fairy lights. I was all breathless and slightly sweaty-damp… but I was *there.*

To see and hear Louise was such a joy. That woman is even more luminous in person than her books or movies could possibly show. She is deeply present with every person around her, and such a loving embodiment of the wisdom she teaches.

But the best part of all?

When we settled down into the cinema to watch the movie, a man walked to the front of the cinema. His black cowboy hat and I’ve-been-broken nose looked familiar. Sone looked at me. I looked at her. And the same words escaped our lips:

Is that Lee fu**ing Kernaghan?

And then we cracked up laughing. The last person on earth we were expecting to see there was there – the Australian country singer & Australian of the Year – otherwise known as Lee Kernaghan (his middle name isn’t an expletive, funnily enough).

But there he was – and this beautiful, down to earth man began to talk. About how much You can heal your life had affected him. About how his mother had healed from breast cancer from it. About how his and his whole family’s lives had changed from Louise’s wisdom.

And it was deeply touching, and very real. It brought tears to my eyes.

So that’s just how wonderful Louise, and her work, and her movie is. She is a gifted woman, and this movie is a gift.

 

2. What the bleep

I know, it’s a little obvious, right? But I’m daring to be obvious with this one. What the bleep was the first movie I saw that taught the truths I was already in love with. I was so excited when I saw that movie – I felt like the whole world had changed.

It is still a profound movie. I always think these things are better when you go into them without hype {i.e. The hype of Eat Pray Love kinda killed it for me}. Having said that, go check this movie out if you haven’t. It’s my first love.

 

3. Small Miracles

This is a beautiful kid’s movie {the very best kind of movie} about a 12 year old boy who decides to become a healer. And, like all souls who decide to take the journey of a healer and spiritual guide, he learns how having Faith in himself, his gifts, and his world view is one of the most needed and powerful tools of all.

Considering my word for the year is Faith, this movie strikes a chord with me A LOT.

 

4. Peaceful Warrior

This book appears on my Top 10 spiritual books too. (LINK) What I adore about seeing movies made from spiritual books is how they represent spirit in visual form. The Peaceful Warrior as both a book and a movie is a wonderful story that we can all learn from.

Favourite part of this movie: Nick Nolte as Socrates. Wisdom comes where you might least expect it.

 

5. The Secret

Another holy-obviousness one. But I’m totally sticking to my obvious guns here. The Secret is a powerful movie. I had never heard of the Law of Attraction before The Secret, and it did such a magnifico job of teaching it to me {and Chris}. I like to describe The Secret as taking one part of What the Bleep and making it practical.

 

6. The Celestine Prophecy

Like Way of the Peaceful Warrior, the Celestine Prophecy is another of my favourite spiritual novels turned into a movie. Fabulous. Watch it.

Favourite part: Seeing how they represent the teachings on energy. I refer back to those images in my mind often to see where my own energy field is.

 

7. From Ambition to Meaning: Wayne Dyer

A few weeks ago, my love Chris bought this movie from our favourite bookstore. I wasn’t really expecting much from it. In fact, I think I even might have muttered “I’m so over the spiritual movie format right now”. But he was insistent. He had intuition that it was the right thing for us at the right time.

And, as he usually is, he was right. We spent that afternoon in a spellbound, enchanted, gentle world of spirit watching that movie – arms and legs akimbo around each other, smiling softly at each other when things resonated.

It is a beautifully produced movie, and a really nice shift away from the What the Bleep/Secret format. A beautiful, beautiful experience.

 

8. Conversations with God

This is another one of Chris’ choices. He was in love with the Conversations with God series for a phase. It’s a beautifully produced movie, with so much heart in it.

Handy tip: Actually try writing to God. See what comes out.

It can be holy-miracle-batman.

 

9. The Blue Butterfly

Magical. Kid’s story. About butterflies.
And Faith. And asking. And hoping. And adventures.
And having strength. And hard becoming soft.
And miracles coming true.

 

10. The Kid

I’m ending on this one, because I think it is a surprisingly amazing movie. It’s a Bruce Willis movie for kids.

But don’t be fooled by that exterior. It is an incredibly touching story and teaching about healing, accepting and honouring our inner child.
This is such an important spiritual movie it was assigned to me by one of my spiritual mentors as required watching. That’s how good it is.

Kid’s movies totally have it all worked out 🙂

Goddess Journey Check-in: the Insta-Vacation edition


Hola my darling cakes!

It’s Sunday! Wahooooooo! Goddess Journey Check-in day, the irregular weekly day we get to check in on our journeys, and the blessings & lessons that have been happening for us.

It’s the day we get to cosy up on a big purple couch with large mugs of tea, and connect-in and share about our journeys this week. It’s a little bit like coming home – to ourselves, and to each other. As always, you can share if you’re called in the Comments Circle.

I’m always glad when it’s a Goddess Journey check-in day. It’s like a little exhale of “aaaahhhhhh” and then a contented little sigh. Of course, that might be just me, but I likes it. 🙂

So. Holy dinger. Where’s Leonie?

This week has been massive + big + topped with elephant sized events. It’s been good, but like, woah! This week was the beginning of the Making Space for your Goddess to Shine e-course, so my days have been filled with amazing emails from amazing goddesses, and painting course materials (because boring black and white course notes are just not do-able in Leonie World), and just a whole clutch of other things that comes with birthing something this big.

There’s over a hundred goddesses course-ing it up, and a Goddess boat to sail, and all the other usual life stuff too. All things I adore doing, but together they come together to make one very big, busy week.

It’s almost coming up to some time for chill-out and retreat goodness.

And funnily enough, that’s just what the Universe has brought me.

Instant Vacation.

So I’ve been stressing about what I would ever do with my business if I ever went on holidays and couldn’t get internet access. And I figured that would be *months* away, but I started looking into getting a VA and making some lovely support systems anyway. Freedom to adventure, retreat, breathe and have beautiful life-journeys is so important to me, so I’ve been working on ways for my wonder-business to be able to support that.

My beautiful HMAS Goddess ship needs to be able to sail even when the captain goes and visits land for a while.

But yeah, months away. I thought I had time to get it happening.

And then something funny happened. Synchronicious and magical and blessed.

My beautiful big sister decided it was time for a life change. And in the space of three weeks, she has decided to move to England, has gotten a London job and a visa to go. It’s holy-macaroni perfect for her. It also means that I need to fly back to my homelands (Proserpine, in North Queensland) which is on the other side of Australia to see her before she leaves.

So I’ve booked my flights, and I’m jumping on a flight like, tomorrow.

Insta-holiday.

It also means I’ve been working my goddess tooshie off to get all those support systems and VA goodness in place like *now* – not months away!

What this means.

If you’re enrolled in one of my courses, you are still going to get all your course materials at the same time.

And if you’re on the Making Space for your Goddess to Shine e-course, all your emails will be answered by the amazing Lisa.

And Lisa has also agreed to be my vacation-enabling-goddess-helper-mouse, so she’ll be helping out with all other urgent GoddessGuidebook.com enquiries too. Like YAY!

And blog posting will be the same – I’ve set them up to go out as well.

So pretty much – you’re going to be getting exactly the same service & goddess goodness as always.

Which is totally how it should work – the ship should still sail wonderfully even if the captain goddess is land-ahoying 🙂 Like YAY!

So it’s been a huge time making such a big shift in a short amount of time… but support systems are tiny, tiny angels with shiny wings. And it means I’m getting what I need, and you’re still getting what you need. YAY!

{What this also means is I’m posting this at midnight and still have things to do before bed. Woo!}

So the blessings. Big time blessings this week.

Instant holiday!

I adore my family. I adore my big sister. I adore going home to our farm.

And I’m over the moon excited that the stars are lining up so that I’ve synchronised a trip home at the same time as my little sister, and at the same time our gorgeous cousins converge on Proserpine for our annual family reunion.

So I’m looking forward to hanging out with my big, crazy, glorious, loving family.

I’m looking forward to campfires in the backyard.
Sushi on the beach.
Visiting the place Chris asked me to marry him only a few months ago.
Watching the sunset everyday over my mountains.
Visiting a little patch of land that some of my future dreams are planted on.
Seeing the sunrise over our paddocks.
Painting with fingers with my sweet niece and nephew.
Cuddling Vinnie our farm dog.
Sleeping in our big wooden farm house again.
Being surrounded by wide, open, green fields. (I really shouldn’t be living in the city… the country calls my name much too much!)
Seeing my horsies! Planting my face in their neck and breathing in their sweet horse smell.

Being back in the place I was born, surrounded by the people I look like and who I love the most.

Being back in the place that is my homeland, my heartland – the place that is in my cells and my being and my internal landscape. It is what made me who I am.

Back to a little bit of space, a little bit of time, a little bit of everything that is important to me.

It’s going to be good.
It already is good.

Passing the Talking Stick

So that’s where I’m at, dearheart. Hovering, diving, swimming, singing… off back to the turquoise lands that call me so. I will be returning July 1st… but the Goddess ship will still be sailing 🙂

As always, feel free to take the talking stick in the Comments Circle and share about your Goddess Journey, blessings and challenges over the last week. You are so gently held.

Love, bunnies, hugs, holidays, woah, big, awesomeness, and most of all love,
