Couch To Marathon In 12 Months

Couch To Marathon In 12 Months

You Can’t Tell Anyone!

Heather trusted me with her secret back in January and asked me to be her health accountability partner. She knew I would be honest with her. After all we have over the past 5 years supported one another on our healing journeys.

In the video above Heather shares her journey and why she is running the London Marathon. This is no mean feat- 26 miles- that’s 40 kilometres. She started last May only took up running last May on the suggestion of her GP to help get strong and healthy as part of her recovery after liver failure three years ago.

From liver failure to marathon success!

That was the headline in Heather’s Local paper this week

heather-bestel-london-marathon

HEATHER Bestel is a well known face in her home town of Wigtown, Dumfries and Galloway where she is a therapist who works with young people. Three years ago Heather underwent 2 operations to save her life from liver failure. She then embarked on a journey to get herself back to full health. This journey led her to discover and fall in love with running. So much so that she has decided to run the London Marathon in April to raise money for a children’s cancer charity.

The charity Heather is  supporting is ‘It’s Good 2 Give‘ which offers support to young cancer patients and their families. They try to make life a little bit easier on a day-to-day basis.

Heather set out to raise £2000 for her charity. We were talking about her passion for this charity on our weekly call. Heather and I met back in 2010 in a productivity course and have been talking most  Thursday night’s since then.

We have both supported one another through major health issues. Even though we live miles apart. We are best friends who have yet to have a real hug. 🙂

I decided it was time for this best friend to support Heather’s charity.  So I decided on a Charity Art Auction of the original artworks for my Heart Whisper Daily Guidance Oracle Cards. The live plan has folded into a Silent Auction.

Update: She ran 26.2 miles and got a medal

Rebooting My Book Project

Rebooting My Book Project

Making My Story A Reality

After a day of feeling a degree of overwhelm, I realised I need to do some fresh prioritising or this book would never be finished

In stepped my beach coach, Des. We were walking on the beach and I was sharing my current lack of progress. Des came up with the plan for me to be accountable on a weekly basis.

There is part of me that doubts  the value of my journey for others. Des reminded me:

You overcame this, if you hadn’t had that positive attitude and total belief that you were going to be healed, it might have overcome you. I said I might still be on dialysis. Des said I might not be here 🙂

That was my wake up moment. I so often forget the seriousness of the kidney failure I had. It takes Des and my freinds to remind me. I often think that what I did was no big thing!

It was very quickly clear to me that completing and publishing my book, Lucky to Be Alive: How I used the Power of Self Love to Safe my Life, had to be high on my list of priorities.

Maybe even the top priority.

I realise that regular readers of this blog might think, “Haven’t we read this before?”, and while I can’t think of a specific blog post to that effect, the reaction would be understandable.

But now I’m putting it out there that this time my commitment is quite serious.

I’m reviewing my plan for completing the writing and scheduling the editing, publication, and marketing elements of the plan.

Being accountable

I’m taking some steps to hold myself accountable to get this done.

One of those steps is to post a weekly update on progress with the book, and I’ll do that even if in my own mind, or in fact, I haven’t made great progress in a specific week.



One idea I am playing with is that in those weekly posts I want to include some excerpts from the book as I’m writing. I’m not sure if that will work, but I want to try it.

Being supported

 

So many people have asked me when the book will be available and some of my friends have urged me to just get on with it! I’m very clear that I will soon be able to share with them and the world a realistic timeframe for that.

What would help would be for you, dear reader, and other readers of this blog, to share your comments and any questions or ideas, as I post my weekly updates.

If you want to be part of the journey and get the weekly updates Plus opportunity to get a review copy join in here: ( you will only get updates  from me about the book, unless you are on my Heart Whisper Ezine list.)

Did You Choose Your Word For 2017?

Did You Choose Your Word For 2017?

What is your word for 2017

Have you chosen you word for 2017

Do you have one word to guide you and your life and/or business this year?

if not do you think you will?

I find the process helpful.

It forces me to look at what’s important for my life and business, not just what’s urgent or maybe even interesting

In the video below I show you the process I used to choose my word for the year or I let the word choose me.

Last year I chose 3 words

Bold, Focus and Dynamic.

I even had the words put on the bold painting I did for one of my mugs

This year I have one main word Trust and four supportive words.

I will see how that goes.

As I explain in the video I used my Heart Whisper Oracle Cards to choose my word for the year.

The card confirmed that this was to be my word. I then journaled about my feelings I desire to come from this word:

Abundance will flow when you trust in you and act on who you truly are here to be and to serve.

Be Bold

Be Open

Be Love

 Be True

Be Sharing

Spread your wings and step into your truth.

It’s time to believe, to be true to you and really step into your power.

You know that space where love just is.

You know you are enough and there is a peace within that allows you to know you can.

Step into that space NOW and feel the abundance of the moment.

I would love to read what your word is for the year and how you chose it. 

Why did you chose it and how will it make you shine in 2017?

Live Your Best Year Yet: Listen To The Whispers of Your Heart

Live Your Best Year Yet: Listen To The Whispers of Your Heart

Live Your Best Year Yet

Reflecting on Last Year

As we come towards the end of another year it is a good time to reflect on where you are now in relation to where you were almost 12 months ago.

Maybe you hit all your goals. Maybe like me there have been some things that were

  1. great- you feel a great sense of achievement
  2. some challenges :

What I will be doing over the next week will be to journal on how I am feeling, I will look back on each month.

This week I am taking time leading up to my birthday to take time to be still and listen as I reflect back on the reading I did last January.  What stood out for me was that the card I drew for December was Just Be.

That is what my body has been telling me since I completed the Focus on Abundance 5 Day Challenge. The challenge raised questions for me and had my limiting beliefs appearing. As I flip back through my journals for the year, it is great to reference each month.

Looking Forward

When I spend time reflecting on my year, I will be meditating, listening to my whispers and making note of what i have done that I can take into the new year.

A new year is time to start over, start fresh. This year I feel I will be building on what I have put into place that I am seeing myself powering forward.

At the Daring and Disruptive Female Entrepreneurs group that I belong to,  end of year session last week we shared  how we saw our year and then we ere asked to share with someone new, and swap the soul foot we had written on.

What so many of us found was the words we received spoke  maybe to us for the coming year.

These words I received from another Suzi touched my heart.  Then Lauren, another daring and disruptive joined us and shared what her word had been for 2016

ROCKET LAUNCH

and how she had embraced these two word and her business took off. Those two words spoke to me so i added them to the soul foot. I love the idea of  Rocket launching my biz in 2017 with ease 🙂

Weekly Heart Whisper Reading October 24th

This weeks’ Heart Whisper reading brings a message of love, allowing and hope,

In the video I explain how I drew the cards and how the message flows from my heart. ( 7 mins )

Here are the words from my journal this morning.

When we smile we raise our vibes, our heart smiles and we feel the love that we are and our heart fills with gratitude. This one smile that comes from your heart will brighten the heart of each person you meet today. This allows your confidence to shine through where your brilliance comes forth. You allow imperfection to be your friend and and hope awakens you to the miracle that you are. The life you have been imagining comes into view. As you feel into this you, put it into your vibrational bubble and you move closer to the impossible becoming possible- Suzie 24/10/16

I would love to hear from you in the comments what your heart is whispering to you from these cards and the message.

True Freedom Is In The Journey

True Freedom Is In The Journey

True freedom is in the journey
What does your perfect journey to freedom look like?

How does that make you feel?

I asked this question on my facebook page on Monday and  the answers got me thinking about the journey to freedom in new inspired ways.

When I started blogging back in 2006 on the Abundance Highway: The tagline was  Journey to Freedom.  I feel like I have come the full circle and as T S Eliot said:

What I now understand at a deep level is that change is just part of the journey to freedom. When we fully love ourselves, we are embracing the changes we have made, the risks we have taken, the courage we have shown. 

All of this allows us to move towards our own perfect journey to freedom.

We each do this in our own way.

In a way that resonates for each one of us and speaks to us from our hearts.

What follows are the many and varied responses to the question I asked that have inspired me and I trust you will maybe see your journey reflected on one or more of these beautiful women, my friends comments.

Peggy Nolan started the ball rolling and her take on the question got me thinking about this journey with new eyes. I to relate to fear holding me back on this journey.

My journey is far from perfect but along the way to living life on my terms, I’ve learned to set healthy boundaries, say yes when I mean yes and no when I mean no, and I’ve learned to stop asking permission.when I stopped asking permission it felt weird at first because I was a permission and approval seeker. The fear of disapproval held me back in so many ways. Not any more! When I stopped asking permission (or thinking I needed permission from SOMEONE to do X), my whole life opened up. Talk about freedom!

Debra Reble‘s words inspired the title of the post, they spoke right to my heart

 It’s to open my heart, sustain my vibration as love and align every thought feeling and choice with my soul’s journey. True freedom is in the journey!

Zeenat Merchant Zyal inspires with her honesty:

For me freedom is saying “*&*#& it” to what others expect of me and living life MY way. I’m already in that zone….just a little bit more and I will be completely free

Carol Hess delighted me and brought in a common theme of the journey being within:

Wow! What great questions! My perfect journey to freedom looks like listening to the wise woman within and recognizing my own divinity. It makes me feel cherished, awestruck, inspired, free, and filled with ease.

Lore Raymond reflect on what Peggy and Zeenat answered, so important to know, like , love and trust you: What you think about me is none of my business 🙂  

Freedom right now looks like ignoring what the naysayers speak about what I can and can’t do. I just keep traveling my path in sacred service. it’s my life–and not theirs.

Natasha Botkin reminds us to live our way- a point that came through for many.

Being in love with live and living this in my own manner with the freedom to do so with a joyful, wonderful feeling

Barb Parcells shares that aspect of freedom that comes when  from the simple things:

Freedom for me right now looks like living in my own home and being able to take off on my own whenever the feeling hits me.

Kelley Grimes  mentions the importance of responding, a gift:

Freedom is creating loving space around myself to respond and not react. I am deeply grateful to my self-nurturing practices of mindfulness and meditation that support my ability to hold that loving space for myself and others.

Debra Oakland  express for us the wonderful  feeling that embracing love brings.

Being myself without restrictions, loving everything from a place of divine love and light. Embracing love, love, love everywhere I AM. It feels wondrous!

Patricia Raga-Young adds in the important of gratitude, i think that propels us faster on out journey t freedom

Continue living an authentic life, honoring my truth and mission, serving others, being grateful and embracing love for where I am now.

Andrea Patten  mentions that this is an ongoing proces, so true

For me it means paying attention to the things that make be feel “un-free” and taking steps to put a stop to them. It’s ongoing, for sure.

Nadia Shana Krauss touched my heart

Connected to source and my soul inherited abundance, self expressing my divine gift

Lisa Hutchison  shares the love theme that has come through in many answers. 

Rachel Kieffer comment resonates for me as an abundant life reflect back to me that I am free. 

Abundant life, thriving biz and frequent travel.

Jami Hearn  love this, oh to be decadent and fulfilled.

It looks like coffee and lunch on my deck everyday! It feels warms and decadent and fulfilling! XoXo

Joanne Cruise shares the importance of living joyfully, such a part of the journey 

The freedom to continue on my soul path & to support others to reach for their dreams in a way that’s authentic & aligned to their values. To live joyfully in each moment ~ To feel alive & happy with every decision & every choice!

Vironika Tugaleva expresses maybe what we all need to hear 🙂 

Lyn Blanc-Carpenter Yes when we shine our light and love unconditionally is freedom

To shine my light brightly out in the world. To not allow limiting beliefs to prevent me from living my life joyfully. To be in integrity and to love myself and others unconditionally.

Share what resonates for you and what does your journey look like?

all my love
