Have you noticed how traumatised we all are? Look around. Fear. Masks. Judgement. Hysteria.
If this isn’t a highly traumatised society I don’t know what is.
Let’s get real for a minute. We are at the beginnings of a deep and painful healing process. Your world. Your society. Your family.
It’s a healing process we don’t even know we need because we’ve been programmed so deeply to believe that everything is functional just the way it is.
Human trafficking. Racism. Poisoned food. Profit above everything. Does anything about that sound healthy to you?
Disconnection. Nihilism. Co-dependency. Tribalism. FEAR.
Not a cocktail I’d like to drink but it's being pumped into your system 24/7 by the existing media paradigm and societal ‘normalities’. Far from normal. A long way off healthy.
So what’s the solution?
First, turn off the TV. Nothing coming through the traditional media channels is going to make you feel any better or assure you. Consuming it will just lead you to a black hole of despair and contraction. The exact opposite of what makes your immune system healthy and strong. Be highly aware of what you are consuming on social media or from anyone in your circle. Nobody has all the ‘facts’ (if such a thing exists) and the only way you are going to know what is right for you - is by connecting to YOU. That’s not possible if there’s continual interference. Right now you might not feel like meditating or going to the gym but I can hands-down guarantee you’ll feel a million times better for it.
Whilst you’re being mindful of what you consume, be mindful of what you put out. Nasty media posts, criticism and judgement of others isn’t going to solve this situation, only make it worse by feeding the feelings of separation, tribalism and isolation.
This is the biggest part - if you feel emotionally triggered, either by the shituation* you are in personally, or by someone else’s words, actions or the audacity to breathe without a mask covering their face - STOP. Don’t move. Don’t react. Get still.
Be guided by how you feel
This is what everyone needs to learn. Your emotions are just telling you stuff. It’s not about the other person. It’s about how you feel inside and how you interpret those feelings. The beauty of this is that you also have the tool to resolve your emotional activation - but most people don’t realise it - because it’s not taught in schools - and it’s even poo-pooed as being some woo woo stuff. Well, how about this.
Lets start with a breath
Instead of dropping bombs on each other, blowing stuff out of proportion and making our nervous systems go haywire - we drop BREATHS. Lot’s of them. DEEP BELLY BREATHS. Into the core of your being.
You want to resolve that emotional wound? Breathe.
Change how you feel inside? Breathe.
Create more abundance in your life? Breathe.
Love yourself more? Breathe.
Basically, you get the picture. It comes back to the simple thing every time. Your breath is your superpower, should you choose to engage with it. In a couple of minutes, you can take yourself from suped-up nervous Nina to chilled out Cathy - if you weren’t so fixated on someones outrageous internet opinion. Stick to your own lane, use your own breath.
Find a comfortable position
Close your eyes
Breathe in through your nose for a count of 4
Hold your breath for a count of 7
Breathe out through your mouth for a count of 8
Repeat 4 times
If you don’t feel 100000% times better, then I’ll eat my hat. That’s how easy it can be if you take a moment to think for yourself. You’re in control of your mind and body, now it’s time you acted like it.
If you know you’ve got more emotional gunk in your system to deal with - then I’m your woman.
Tried everything? Good. You probably haven’t tried this.
You probably won’t. But if you do? It will change your life, and you’ll be free once and for all.
Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.
Let’s just say there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes in my life that I don’t often share. I feel like that goes for the rest of the population - we’re so busy saving face and attempting to look all pretty and perfect on the outside that we fail to recognise were dying on the inside. A slow and painful death that is the result of not unleashing what we are truly here to do, and who we are really here to be.
Anyway I digress - so back to the headline. I expect you’re literally dying to know what all this is about!
Well these are on my to-do list this week. My personal development journey never stops, I just don’t always publish what I get up to, and maybe you’ll find out if you’re a client of mine, or maybe you won’t. But today I wanted to share this as a recognition that the work takes work. One of my highest values is learning - and I’ll scrape together and integrate all kinds of weird and wonderful practices and insights for the constant improvement in my clients results.
Hence this week 100k months, a fake penis and a call with the wizard in my pocket. And that’s just for starters. Let’s go with the first one - and probably most contentious or triggering. We all have issues with money - and the majority of these stem from lack of self worth and societal conditioning about what money IS and what money MEANS. You know all those beliefs - like rich people are assholes - or that - money doesn’t grow on trees? Well they’re not actually true. Unless you believe them to be true.
So I’m stretching myself with one of my mentors - upgrading my own wealth hardware to bring more abundance in my life - so my clients get to do that too - and the best bit? It’s automatic and by osmosis.
You are the result of the five people you spend the most time with. So I’ll be filling my time and consciousness with the wisdom of someone who has made multiple millions online ONLY from soul and flow. If you want to upgrade your game I suggest you do something similar - whatever the goal - get into the circle or energy of someone who already has it.
Make your life easier, not harder.
Pain is guaranteed in life, suffering is optional. Be smart about where you spend your time and energy because ultimately this is an investment in yourself and you get what you pay for.
The next one - a fake penis. A little more left field and potentially more interesting. And for the perverts at the back, I know this is what attracted you to read thus far ;) I’m currently journeying the archetype of the ‘dark masculine’ which when imbalanced is what typically represents the evil acts that exist in the world. Things such as rape, destruction, and violence are the product of deep pain, grief and sadness. It’s difficult to understand or see this on the surface, but when you look closer and journey deep within yourself, you will understand this is true.
I decided to dive into this exploration to cease externalising my projections onto the masculine (and/or men) so that I can become more whole within myself. In addition understanding men from a different perspective gives me more tools as a facilitator and mentor to journey the deepest places that require love and attention.
So that’s why I’ll be making a fake penis and probably wearing it around the house at some point, so that I have a more embodied awareness of this energy. (yes - it's this weeks homework….) Now you might think I’m downright crazy, in which case you’d definitely be correct, however I live and breathe what I teach - and I’m prepared to do what others will not - to become more human and understanding of the opposite sex. So that we can create more love and harmony on this planet, instead of separation and destruction.
Perhaps wearing a banana down your pants seems really weird, but I’m in for a penny, in for a pound. Plus - extra fruit for your morning smoothie ;)
Last but not least…the wizard in my pocket. Coming back to the first point - be in the energy of the people who are doing/have what you want. I want more money and magic which is what Dane Tomas has. So I decided to join his most recent (not so secret) society to get an upgrade in my consciousness, ability to create my reality and hone my emotional clearing tools. Oh and work on purchasing a house/land outright next year. No pressure then. So I’m looking forward to having this wizard on speed dial.
When the house comes good, I’ll invite you round for some kind of weird shamanic initiation ritual - or maybe just some cheese and wine.
So that’s just the start of my week - not to mention the NLP course I’m studying, the ayurvedic detox I’m starting or the million and one other things going on. Nothing to see here!
What are you doing this week?
I’d love to know!
Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.
Here's what I recognise - the overwhelming majority of people don't. They're always second-guessing their decisions and there's an underlying feeling of anxiety that pervades their life.... Just waiting for the other shoe to drop....
I know because that was me.
For years I double-checked and took on board other peoples opinions. And guess what.....When you do that over and over (as our systems of learning/society/authority teach us to do) then you end up with a deep mistrusts in your internal guidance system. It's like driving a car with a blindfold on - getting fed directions by somebody else..... Essentially you're there, primed, waiting for the car to eventually crash. I think you'll agree it's not a good place to be.
Recently I've been working with one of my mentors on TRUST. It's a big thing. I've also been on a deep dive with the kinesiology emotional clearing tools I'm trained in. What dawned on me a few days ago during one of her sermons was that trust is a DECISION. It's an internal belief system. You might be thinking .... NO Philippa.... I need to trust BEFORE I can actually trust. Well good luck with that, because it's NOT going to happen.
You either trust and believe in yourself or you don't. It might sound simple but it's true. It might be confronting, and if so, then it's time to shift your paradigm for the better. My mentor has made $15m online from a soul-aligned business. It's fair to say she knows what she's talking about.
So it got me thinking - how is it possible to flick the switch on trusting yourself? To feel -
& DEEP TRUST IN YOURSELF?
Then for the AHA moment... by using my kinesiology clearing tools to directly install new beliefs!
Go in and hack the system (because that's essentially what these tools do) with a new belief system. It's like hitting reboot on your computer after loading new software. Load new beliefs and new experiences await.
Like trusting yourself!
I've been experimenting on myself and it WORKS. I'm so excited to share this so I've designed a session specifically for you. We go in and rewrite the code. And then... miracles unfold.
If you'd love to overcome:
- second-guessing yourself
- worry worry worry
- the early and unnecessary onset of wrinkles

Warning: This might just completely change your life for the better.
