Have you ever felt that in spite of all the personal development work you’ve done, nothing much has changed in your life? The same challenges are still there and you still feel stuck and frustrated? You know you’re missing out on the richness of life, you know it can be magical, yet somehow the magic always seems just beyond your reach.
That was where I was when HeartIQ found me. Chronic health problems were getting worse with each passing month (I’ve had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome since 2003) and I was facing the prospect of another big relapse if things continued as they were.
Yet again, I was in a job which held no meaning for me and was sucking the life out of me. Deep down I felt that I was here for a reason and over the years I had moved from job to job, from country to country looking for that illusive “something” which I could never quite define, much less find.
Life was getting harder and harder in spite of all the work I had done. Yet, I knew that life didn’t need to look like my experience, so what was I missing?
Finally, I stopped trying to fix everything. I asked (well, actually I demanded :) ) that the Universe show me a way to change my life and the Universe answered in a most unexpected way. A couple of days later one of Christian’s videos appeared in my newsfeed.
I watched while he talked about feeling more joy in daily life, feeling more alive, living an authentic life, being more connected with my authentic essence. All the things I’d been searching for! My heart practically jumped for joy because I knew that I had found what I was looking for; the tools I needed to reclaim my life. I dived right in, signed up for his training and will be eternally grateful that I listened to my intuition.
How has my life changed since finding HeartIQ?
Connection, connection, connection! Both with self and others. I have tasted the power which becomes available to me when I connect with my own authentic self, with my own inner truth. I have revelled in the depth of intimacy which is available in relationships when I connect deeply with others.
I have gained clarity about what my heart truly longs for and how to integrate that into my life.
The more I practice HeartIQ the closer I come to living a more authentic life. One big lesson for me was that living a life which is not aligned with who I am has been the source of much of my pain.
I have learned how rich my life can be when I allow myself to truly feel all emotions. For many years I felt numb and finally being able to feel everything has brought more joy into my life. There is so much joy in feeling everything deeply.
I have found my tribe. HeartIQ is about building community and the depth of connection within that community is unlike anything I had ever experienced in my life.
A strange one this; coffee & sugar cravings are mostly a thing of the past and in fact I dont even like the taste of coffee any more (for someone with a lifelong caffeine habit, this was unexpected!)
My approach to HeartIQ
My passion lies in guiding people to create the life they love. Not a life dictated by logic or “shoulds” but one which feels good at the core of your being. A life which nourishes and delights you with its richness and depth.
When we are faced with big life challenges, it can be easy to disconnect from ourselves and lose sight of our path and our inner light. Thanks to the tools I learned through HeartIQ, I’m more able to navigate the challenges and view each experience in life as an opportunity to learn and grow. I can take a step back from the pain which would have consumed me in the past and allow things to unfold. The peace I gain from that alone is worth its weight in gold.
There is a great saying: “Let your test be your testimony and let your mess become your message”. In other words, the challenges you face today do not determine your future. You will move through the test and one day someone out there will benefit from the lessons you learn during the process.
My goal is to help you to see beyond your “test” and your “mess” and to find your testimony and your message.
More about me
I know that there is so much more to life than what we've been told. It is meant to be lived and loved.
I believe life is full of magic if we can just open our eyes to it.
I grew up on a small farm in rural Ireland.
I learned to drive in a bright orange 1967 VW Beetle, affectionately known by neighbours as “The Flying Orange” when it reached top speed of 55mph going downhill.
I love trees and would happily live in a forest.
Music, especially classical music makes me feel alive and I try to get to some live concerts every year.
Places I do not belong; dance floors and ski slopes. Its just not pretty!
I’m secretly hoping Peter Jackson will remake The Lord of The Rings and cast me as an elf. He doesn't know that yet!
The most joyful experiences in my life have come from heart-felt connections with people.
I have a deep soul longing to contribute something worthwhile to the world; something which will leave the world ever-so-slightly better by the time I depart.
If I had to sum up my approach to life I would do so by quoting Robert Frost :
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference"
If you're ready to live your life your way, why not connect with me and see what HeartIQ can do for you? Take the road less traveled by. You'll be glad you did :)
