Still You Stand

‘If every remnant of success was gone from you — still you stand as the culmination of all that you’ve learned…’ @AbrahamHicks #CrossingFrontiers

There Are No Preconditions

Hard to imagine that Sargy Mann is a blind painter. There is a colour, vibrancy and shape to his work that seems to be extraordinary when you consider he is not sighted. He shares his story here and says “If you are determined to keep going you don’t have to give up”. In that he reminds me of Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards – who didn’t give up on his dream to be an Olympian. It was his determination rather than his talent that saw him achieve his end result.

What preconditions are getting in your way of creating what matters to you? What would you love to create that you have given up on?

If you want guidance to see the truth of what matters to you and what you need to do to refocus on it I am offering £100 off my one off breakthrough sessions bookings received between now and 15th February 2019. Sessions normally cost £250.

Booking Calendar

I will work with you to explore what is getting in the way of your best intentions, get clear on what really matters to you and establish the next step towards that end result.

We Are All Alchemists

Black is just how humans perceive the absence of any significant peaks in the spectrum of reflected light.

The alchemist knows that where there is lead, where there are challenges, there is blackness, there is also gold.

We are all of us alchemists. We activate our ability to release the spirit of the lead when we know that everything in life happens for us not to us. When we turn the eye inwards, when we observe our lives from the perspective of spirit we reveal the spectrum of golden light that is hidden to the human eye. Light that opens up new pathways for us to follow.

To Be Awake Or Not To Be Awake

To be awake means that the dream is over – to re-member the dream of unconsciousness that brings a life of tensions, anguish, feeling unfulfilled and running after illusions is to be asleep again.

The Hollow Space

There is a hollow space in us that we inhabit with our breathe. When we listen into that space where the visible and the invisible meet we will hear the crystal clear whisper of our hearts.

Cultivating The Sub Conscious Mind

Creating what matters to you is assured when you understand how to cultivate your sub conscious mind. It is not the BIG actions that count but the messages of purposeful intent. NOT taking action towards what matters tells your sub conscious mind that it doesnt matter.

What matters is that you can do it NOW not how BIG it is. What can you do NOW that plants the seed that you are on purpose?

And then DO IT.

A compendium of stories from pilgrims who have walk the Camino to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Northern Spain.

The Pea Green Boat

In August 2012 I was sitting on an escarpment overlooking the ancient beginnings of civilisation in Swaziland in Africa. In the dusty haze a trail emerged laid out across scrubby, foreign land, a long, long walk leading all the way to the sea and, I imagined, a handsome sailor in a pea green boat.

Two months later I walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain. Almost 1000 km from the border with France to the Coast of Death in Galicia. Every step takes me deeper into the land, my edges softened by rock, my spirit dissolving in earth, the raging energy of the elements becomes my wildness, I breathe in the desire of soul symbiosis and exhale ecstasy.

Did I buy boots – yes Salomon Ultra X.  Did I take time to research my pack – yes it was an Osprey just the right size, complete with a built in hydration pack (fancy name for bag of water), did I carry a guidebook – yes a ‘John Brierley’, did I train – well maybe – if you count a few weekends of long walks.

My Camino journey was wildly imaginative and that is the story my spirit wants to share.  Fortunately that spirit called in Andrew Priestly and My Camino Walk #1 project – my story is one of 20 stories, jostling alongside 19 others, it is a wonderful compendium that gives you insights into 20 prisms of Camino perception. You have the practicality of preparation, the wisdom of spiritual journeying, the suffering of physical limitation, the mental anguish of being human.  The full experience of life.  The Camino is but a metaphor for life.  How you experience it is just the lens you are looking through.  Imagine living life when you can play with all the lens available to you?

Is Coaching A FAD?

Everyone who is anyone has a coach and the flavour of the month is that anyone who wants to be ‘successful’ HAS to have a coach. All the BEST people have coaches and mentors but is coaching just a fad, a passing fashion?

Personally I am not comfortable with being labelled as a ‘coach’ – I am curious to explore other definitions but I digress. The truth is I have a talent for coaching. A talent that is both my gift and my Achilles heel. I am a dreamer, a seer and a purveyor of the future. The Vision of what is possible for someone else is so real for me and the path from the reality of where they are to the fullness of their potential is an illuminated dance of fairy lights: obvious and inviting.

BUT…. I am unable to see my own potential, my own gifts. Looking into my own light there is nothing there. Metaphorically perhaps I am blinded by it. My experience of life is often one of emptiness, nothingness, blank and uninspired. In this space I am heavy, weighty, impinging on life. Nothing to see, nothing to contribute, nothing to really live for. AND THAT is why I have a coach to hold the lamp when I am stumbling in the dark, to hold my Vision when I can’t see it for myself, to hold me with compassion while I die to living in the old structures of the darkness and die to believing the lie that I am nothing if I can’t see.

Choosing to live our full potential, to be who we truly want to be is a choice to walk into the light to, a choice to let go of fumbling in the shadows, a choice to believe that someone else can show and support me to be who I truly I am better than I can be by myself. I feel the imperative of showing my clients who they truly are. I feel the beating heart of their potential and I know that together we can climb the Everest of their dreams.

To be a coach in the true sense of the word, in the exciting, alive sense of the word is to bypass rational thinking and orient and act from the imaginal realm. To be coached from this perspective is about the courage to put your heart in the hands of a top surgeon who truly cares about you coming through the other side. It is about dying to who you think you are to become WHATEVER and WHOEVER you would really love to be. Coaching is serious stuff.

REAL coaching is a life enhancing, life expanding, mind blowing and spirit soaring. I choose to be a coach in the courageous sense of the word and my passion is to work with people who want to be the best they can be in life and put their pure talent into the world through their work and businesses. I work with a maximum of 3 clients at any one time to take their work/business to the next level taking time and care to forge and secure the path to your Everest.

Combining coaching with 25+ years creating and delivering high tech solutions to transform businesses I deliver a practical hands on offering as part of my Collaborative Coaching package as well as opportunities to connect and mastermind with others on the same journey.

SO…I have two openings in my collaborative coaching program for aspiring business leaders and entrepreneurs.

For a no obligation 45 minute consultation to show you the potential of our collaboration while these slots remain open send me a message or email anne@crossingfrontiers.co.uk to book a session.

Testament To Spirit

Crumpled parchment
Brittle translucent
Silently compliant and dissolving into death
The breathe of life blowing dandelion seeds into the wind
Tumbling lightly on this earth with carefree abandon
The delight of tenacious spirit holding on to the joy of being alive
Of being human.

A spiritual light housed in a skeleton lamp of sinew, bone and a little flesh
The eternal spark burning more brightly as the body slips away
Leaving the indomitable spirit
Naked in its brightness
A defiance to death’s puny grasp
A giggle into its inevitable embrace.

A light that isn’t doused but rather wends its merry way
Into the memory of our mind
Daisy chained to those who have gone before
And those who are still behind
Dancing fairy lights into the glade of night
A glided teasing invitation to join Immortality
And snuff goodbye to Time.
