Hola gorgeous Goddesses!!!

There’s *four* of my gorgeous goddess e-courses starting in four days… so I’m showcasing each one so you’ll know if any are singing your name.

Take a six week journey to create a space that isn’t just a home – but a Goddess Haven…

In this course you will:

  • use powerful space clearing techniques to make the energy of your home sparkle again
  • be supported and inspired to divinely declutter your space, step by step
  • use inspired interior design to create a style in your haven that sings of YOU and your goddess spirit!

We will be banishing:

  • feelings of powerlessness about where to start
  • being overwhelmed by our spaces
  • feeling bored, uninspired or weighed down by our home.

This course is for:

  • You might want to do *something* but don’t know how to even begin – you just feel overwhelmed with stuff and life and where you are already.
  • You might be an entrepreneur chasing your big dreams, and need space that supports you.
  • You might be a creative goddess, feeling a little overwhelmed by all your creative ideas and *stuff* who wants to feel more clarity and ease
  • You might be a mama who is drowning in the accumulated family stuffs and needs a space that is peaceful and reminds you of your spirit.
  • You might simply be on a healing journey. Or a transition journey. Or a discovery journey. Or a love journey.
  • Whatever journey you are on – you are wanting and needing and craving a space that is a haven for the Goddess in you.

Creating your Goddess Haven eCourse from Goddess Leonie on Vimeo.

This course is a journey.

Creating a Goddess Haven isn’t a one-time binge session of throwing away, moving furniture and vacuuming. That can feel overwhelming and dull. And pretty soon, things just get back to feeling the same instead. What we’ve instead created is a six-week journey where we’ll be guiding you through divine decluttering, magical space clearing and inspired interior design to create an amazing, spirit, light, joyful space.

This course is to help you create sacred, clear space and energy around you so you can get on with living your gorgeous, joyful goddess life.

We’ll be empowering you with all the wisdom, tools and techniques you need to make your space feel and look amazing *to you*.

You will receive:

  • projects, a video, worksheets and e-books to help you divinely declutter, magically space clear & inspiredly interior design!
  • a 25 minute original guided meditation MP3 by Goddess Leonie to use over the course to help you deeply tap into the transformational lusciousness of this course. This meditation will help you see the shining light inside you, know what you need in order to share it and help you start bringing it out. You’ll be glowing from the inside out. Kinda like you just followed a firefly, but – you know – in a sacred way.
  • a bonus sacred sound clearing MP3 to use in your space.
  • access to a private Goddess School forum to connect and share with other Goddesses on the same journey. The Goddess School circles are one of the most important parts of this course… we truly try to create a space that is a sacred goddess tribe… just like being in a women’s circle.

Here’s just some of the gorgeous things you can expect from this course…

  • Take inventory of the physical and invisible clutter in your home, space and life
  • De-clutter easily and gently – and dare we even say – divinely?
  • Use inspired interior design to create a space that feels radiant and vibrant and inspiring to you
  • Indulge in scrumptious creative projects to create a vision of your Goddess Haven!
  • Use feng shui to create your dreams
  • Clear negative or stuck energies out of your home
  • Learn how to use crystals, herbs, smudging and sound-clearing to make your space shine
  • Create a soulful altar as a place of inspiration, connection and peace
  • Develop and trust your intuition
  • Energise and cleanse your home so it is sparkling, shining and supports you!

To sum it up…

The Creating your Goddess Haven e-course is a complete, easy, guided journey for you to create the home of your biggest dreamsa true haven for the Goddess in you. A home that delights you, inspires you, and helps you live your beautiful Goddess life.

Freshly Anticipated Questions

How will the course be run?

Every week you will receive all the course materials for the week. You’ll be able to listen to the MP3 meditations, read the ebooks, watch the videos and do the projects at whatever time is delicious for you. You’ll be given access to downloading them to use on your computer and MP3 players. All you will need is a free copy of Adobe Reader, and any kind of MP3 software (iTunes, RealPlayer etc – these usually come with your computer). You’ll also have access to a private online forum where you can share your journey with other Goddesses on the same journey!

My house is a freaking mess. Like – terrible. I don’t even want to think about it. Will this really help?

If you are a little bit ready to change it, we can help you. You will be guided as you clear your space gently and easily, and create habits that will nourish you and your goddess haven. And the magical space-clearing parts will help you clear away any old, stuck energy in your home to help it stay a haven. If you’re ready to sign up for the course, that’s a good sign that you are ready to make your home your goddess haven…

This isn’t a course about being a neat freak with a minimalist house – unless that’s totally what makes your soul happy! This is about finding a way to create and keep a space that lights you up, nourishes you and is your Goddess haven.

My house is already really tidy. I’m a total neat freak. Would I get anything from this course?

The Creating your Goddess Haven e-course is about much more than just making your home clean. It’s about making it a space that sustains, nourishes, supports and inspires you. You’ll learn a whole new toolbelt of techniques to make your home a soulful, supportive place of energy for you. Think: crystal gridding gloriousness, inspired interior design, sacred sound clearing, and deeply intuiting, sensing, cleansing and energising your home? In short… making your home not just neat, but a gorgeous, vibrant, inspiring haven to live in and be nurtured by.

All my love,

Hola gorgeous Goddesses!

Before I had Little Mermaid I was SO EXCITED about using slings. What could be easier right? Pop baby in sling, and go about your day like everything is normal! Life won’t change at all!

hee hee hee.

Me thinks this goddess was avoiding thinking about life changing.

The truth is, I didn’t know there would be a learning curve when it came to wearing slings.

I didn’t know that it would be hard sometimes. That Little Mermaid wouldn’t always like them.

That I would go through seven different kind of slings and that it would take over two months to finally find our sling groove.

The truth is, some days they work wonderfully (like today! The reason I’m writing this post is because it’s 8.23am, I popped Little Mermaid in a sling so I could put some washing on, she fell asleep, and now I am standing up, rocking back and forwards, madly typing away on my laptop which is balancing on a box in our living room. YAY! Two hands!)

Other days, slings don’t work for us. And I had to find some kind of acceptance about that. That some days we would use a pram. Some days I would just carry her in my arms.

When Starry was first born, she was not a fan of the sling – and neither was I. We just couldn’t work it out. She would grunt and moan while she was in there, and I felt so tight across my chest and anxious that she wasn’t able to breathe properly or be comfortable.

But I kept at it. I talked to other slinging mamas. I watched Youtube videos. I tried more slings out. I read The Attachment Parenting Book which had some good aha! slinging moments. I asked my doula for help. We kept trying.

Things definitely got easier as Starry got stronger and could hold her head up. I found it hard to sling her when she was still a little cocoon baby, and better as she gets older.

Then all of a sudden, I realised last week that our pram hasn’t been used for a month. That I could usually get Starry to have at least one nap in the day in the sling. Hurrah!

Slings really can make it much easier for mama and bubba – once the learning curve is complete.

So I thought I’d share here about the slings I use and what works for us.

{And also, I want to say that if you’ve decided to not use slings, or that they don’t work for you, that is totally perfect and awesome. Whatever sings to you is perfect, gorgeous woman! I’m just sharing this for any goddess who might be wanting extra help.}

Ring Sling

With all the fancy expensive slings we have, this is now actually the one I use the most – and it is the most simple and the cheapest. I got ours on eBay and like ours particularly because it has padding along the edges to make it soft for Lil Mermaids legs, butt and head.

Pros of the ring sling: I tend to keep this one in reach the most because its the easiest to pop her in and out during the day. It’s also the easiest to take in the car with us and put her in it when we are at the shops. With the other slings there is a little bit more fiddling and adjusting to put it on. You can but these pretty cheaply on eBay, or if you are handy, make your own. Yahoo!

The cons of this sling: it can make your shoulder sore after a while. That’s why I like to have different slings to mix it up a bit for my back. Another con: This sling has only really worked for us now that she’s older. Also: I find it harder to bend down in the ring sling than with the Ergo.

Round-up: The ring sling is currently used the most. Simple, easy to transport, great once you’ve found a position that works for you both.

Also: I would really dinking love a rainbow ring sling. Rainbow ring sling company, please find me.

Ergo Baby carrier


(When Ostara was a baby button – using the infant insert with her.)

This is my second most used carrier, and holds a special place in my heart for being the first carrier Ostara fell asleep in and didn’t moan in.

Pros: Big thick padded straps. This is definitely one of the best ergonomically designed carriers for mum. Getting the infant insert means that your tiny baby will be way happier in there – it keeps their legs together instead of apart. This was key for us! Whenever I put Starry in the Ergo, she gets quiet… I don’t think she has been super disgruntled in there yet. Also, this carrier definitely gives me the most range of movement, and I can bend down it with no problems.

Cons: it’s the most expensive carrier I bought (I got mine with infant insert from eBay for $140). However, I do have friends who bought off eBay, used for a couple of years and resold on eBay for $8 less. Pretty rocking on the price staying power! Also, it takes up a bit more room when transporting, and takes a little longer to put on.

Round-up: I would really recommend this carrier. Feels good for baby, feels good on you. Pricey but worth it.

Post Script: I wrote this post a couple of months ago. The Ergo is now the one I use the most by a country mile. As she’s gotten stronger and heavier, the padded shoulder straps have been so much better on my back than the ring sling.

Wrap around sling

These babies are pretty much one long stretchy bit of fabric that you wrap around you like human origami and hold babe to you.

Cons: I’ve only managed to get her asleep in there once without her moaning and grumbling. (See photo) Also, it is dinging annoying wrapping it around you in a carpark, with the long ends dropping all over the ground and getting dirty.

I tried using it in supermarkets when she was little (like five weeks old), but it never felt supportive enough for her – I didn’t feel like she could sit in there properly when she still had so little control of her head or back. We just didn’t get the hang of it. Chris has now commandeered this one to use from time to time – he just has it tied in two loops around his shoulder and uses it like a ring sling without the ring.

So there you go, my darlingheart.

I just wanted to reassure you if you’ve been having a hard time finding the sling that works for you & babe.

I want you to know you are a good mama, no matter if this sling thing works out or not.

It will get easier.

You will find what works for you, and your babe.

Trust your intuition.

And chant over and over and over:

I am a wonderful mama.

Because you totally & utterly are.

Big love,
