Choose love in every moment. When we step out of our constantly busy, analysing, fear driven minds and drop into our hearts, life flows with more fun and ease and we get to experience life with greater fulfillment, love and happiness. Our cup becomes suitably full!
Choosing love in every moment is about nurturing an ever flowing, eternal wellspring of unconditional patience, compassion, forgiveness and gentle kindness. When we drop into this awareness we realise that at the very core of our nature we are the same; each a single, precious vulnerable human being yearning to be loved, accepted and feeling like we belong. To essentially – ‘be enough with who we are’.
When we can meet the world with an open and vulnerable heart, unafraid of its beauty and its blemishes, this is the truth of an untethered soul. When we can let go of the struggle to become someone different, to let go of an imagined happiness, this is the truth of an awakened heart ~ Jess Leggatt
Perfection use to be a dirty word in my vocabulary. It use to cause a great deal of angst and heartache in my life, flipping my sympathetic nervous system into overdrive and triggering off a never ending cycle of stress, anxiety and turmoil in my body. Now, it has become the threshold to unveiling the True Beauty of my life. A stepping stone to a greater understanding of why we are all here.
Listen to the whispers in your heart and follow your soul’s true desires
In other words DO WHAT YOU LOVE, listen to your inner most dreams and desires and live the life you imagined. DO what makes your heart sing!
As many of you are aware, I have started writing my first book. I am following my deepest heart yearnings and living out my life-long dream to become a writer. I can’t wait to share it with you and birth my heart’s work into the world. It has something I have been wishing for a very long time. I feel like I am finally on my soul-inspired path, and listening to the whispers in my heart (even with the doubts, the fears, the self-sabotaging beliefs and the voice in my head constantly trying to talk me out of it). And, I am learning to TRUST the process.
Welcome to my latest video blog. It’s something I’ve been meaning to share with you for sometime now. It’s taken me awhile because I’ve been dealing with a little something I call the ‘fear freeze response’.
Today I finally plucked up the courage to share with you a little more about me, what I do, what my role is, and essentially what my ethos is, about life, health, healing and self-fulfilment. It’s just a little taste test. A small bite size chunk about my new and emerging role as an integrated wellness practitioner, and my ethos for living a healthy, wholesome, joyful life. Before you watch the video, I had a little something I wanted to share with you first.
All things of matter and life, including human beings, are made up of an energetic blueprint. If we can learn how to influence this blueprint, we can learn how to flip our body’s systems into health and healing mode. My latest video blog will show you how, with a simple and easy exercise.

Food is our elixir for vibrant health and glowing vitality. Enjoy my latest video blog giving you my 5 top tips for nourishing your inner GLOW.
I realise I don’t mention protiens and fats in this quick video clip but the answer is YES! I eat good quality proteins everyday (mostly fresh, organic free range chicken or fresh local caught fish). I also load up on healthy brain boosting fats in all of my cooking (including organic coconut oil, pasture fed Ghee and raw extra virgin olive oil / flaxseed oil on my salads). If your vegan or vegetarian, make sure you get a wide variety of protien rich foods in your diet and enjoy a good dose of healthy fats in your cooking! Good fats and good quality protien sources in your diet is so important for your brain, nervous system and skin health – a critical ingredient for a GLOWING WHOLE LIFE.

Make awareness your friend
Negative thoughts self liberate when we touch them with the gentle caress of awareness.
Old wounds begin to heal when we bring loving attention to them and bathe them with the soothing balm of compassion.
Old programs unravel. Old records fade. Self limiting beliefs disappear.
Life transforms when we make awareness our friend ~ Jess Leggatt
Awareness can be our greatest teacher and loyal friend if we learn to pay attention. Awareness comes to us in many forms, sometimes alighting itself gently on our lap with a soft whisper or gentle nudge, taking our hand lovingly and guiding us in the direction we need to go. Other times it comes to us with more force, boldly knocking us over, or jolting us wide awake with a fierceness we can’t ignore.
It doesn’t matter how awareness enters our life, what matters is that we learn how to pay attention and take note.
Cultivate resilience by nurturing your inner life
I often refer to resilience as our ability to bend instead of break. Quite often throughout our life we are thrown a curve ball, or two (or three or four or five!); a specific incident or accumulation of experiences that bowls us off our feet, takes the wind out of sail, and makes us acutely aware of our own fragility and vulnerableness.
Sometimes it’s a major blow like a serious illness, a death of a loved one, a divorce, a major injury, bankruptcy or the loss of a job. Other times it’s a gentler tug like loneliness, resentment, failure, rejection or disappointment. It doesn’t matter what form it takes, the commonality of these experiences is that they push our pain buttons, and pull and tug at our inner sense of wellbeing and resilience.
Embracing a perfectly imperfect life
As I began to write this article, I started thinking about a famous and unforgettable quote from one of my favourite movies of all time: The Princess Bride. If you haven’t yet been blessed with this movie in your life, I know you soon will after reading this blog post. Watching this movie, will give you a WHOLE new perspective on fairytales, life, love and living with abandon. Let me share with you why.
