How I overcame nausea during pregnancy.

Tamra MerciecaMental Health6 Comments

When I first saw the cross show up on the pregnancy test, I was excited. My husband and I both. We’d wanted to have a child sometime soon, and now we had a baby in my belly. We began telling people straight away. I know the general rule is wait ‘till you’re out of the danger zone at 3-months, but our philosophy … Read More

You cannot have what you ‘want’ but you CAN have anything.

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

Ha? That doesn’t make sense, you say. ‘I cannot have what I ‘want’ but I CAN have anything.’ Isn’t that a contradiction? No! You can have anything you want. Let me explain…. Nothing happens in life, that did not first start out, as a thought. Thoughts are subtle, yet powerful, forms of energy. We think something, it creates a reaction, … Read More

‘I can’t (insert desire)’. Sure you CAN!

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

What happens when you say you ‘I can’t do it’? It automatically sets up an expectation that you can’t do whatever it is that you would like to do. I can’t eat well, I can’t change jobs, I can’t find a good man, I can’t afford that course, I can’t find the time to have a self-love practise, I can’t get ahead in life, I can’t… and the list goes son and … Read More

The school of life

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

This blog follows on from last week’s blog: Do you have a spiritual teacher? If you haven’t read it, I would suggest reading it first, then come back to this blog, as it will make more sense. We go to school to learn spelling, math, art and so forth, yet many of us don’t realise that our real school, where … Read More

Are you sick of hurting? Heal your hurt NOW!

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

Nobody wants to feel hurt. Nobody wants to feel hurt, because.. well… it hurts. Yet many people are carrying around a LOT of hurt. Yet just like mold, if you don’t clean the hurt up, it only grows and expands. What happens when hurt is left to fester? You start to lash out at the people you love, you become … Read More

Let me introduce you to the subconscious mind…

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

How do you feel when an ‘error’ pops up on your computer screen? Frustrated? Annoyed? Shitty?

Ready to ditch your fear of public speaking?

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

Would you believe three years ago, just the thought of public speaking would send shivers of anxiety down my spine? Seriously. I remember in my early 20s being a guest speaker at a university lecture where I had to talk about journalism – my former career – and quite literally shaking through the entire talk. My hands were white and … Read More

Your internal tape recorder: It records EVERYTHING!

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

It’s funny how much we know (especially about other people and the world around us) without consciously realising it. When I’m out walking, and I see someone coming my way, I can tell automatically before I see their face (as I’m a little short-sighted without my glasses) if it’s someone I know. How? Because an unconscious part of me recognises … Read More

Why most therapy doesn’t work…

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

I’ve spoken to thousands of people who’ve tried counseling, psychology and other new age therapies only to leave disappointed years later (and thousands of dollars down) with the same negative patterns still playing out in their life. They’ve read a library full of self-help books and given that 12-week challenge a go, and still the original problem is there. Why … Read More

Ghosts of the past: Are you haunted by your memories

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

We all have memories. And that’s because we all have a past. All those happy memories are great to reflect upon. It’s the awful, sometimes horrific memories that have the ability to unhinge us, break us down and haunt our daily existence. The great news is, no matter what ghosts are residing in your most precious self, they can be … Read More

News Toxicity: Are you poisoning your mind?

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

How much news do you consume on a daily basis? Are you a news junkie or do you take small bites? This week I wanted to look at how news can actually make us take on a more pessimistic view of life and even trigger depression and low moods. It’s not surprising, given that our environment has the ability to … Read More

Life: Our biggest teacher

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

We live in a world that applauds learning from others in a formalised manner. Now I’m not saying don’t get that university degree, take that music class or see a therapist to help you resolve that emotional debacle. What I am saying, is that there are other helpful ways of learning and growing and developing, and they don’t require forking out huge wads … Read More

Is your relationship baby-ready?

Tamra MerciecaRelationship Health0 Comments

The good ‘ol biological clock can send us into a head spin, if by thirty (or even forty for some ladies) they have not yet found the man they wish to procreate with. I see single women go on a date with the intention to marry the first man who will give her their sperm, instead of actually finding a … Read More

Relationship Rescue: Do you have white knight syndrome?

Tamra MerciecaMental Health, Relationship Health0 Comments

In fairytales the white knight recues the damsel in distress, falls in love, and saves the day – charming isn’t it? However, real-life knights are men and women who enter into romantic relationships with damaged and vulnerable partners, hoping that love will transform their partner’s behavior; a relationship pattern that seldom leads to a storybook ending. The rescuer enters the … Read More

Spring is the time of new growth – we see this all around us as buds yawn open into the most beautiful flowers.

Addicted to addiction: Do you keep seeking more?

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

Last week I talked about using substances, people or things to fill the emptiness so many people in today’s world are familiar with; you may know it as an inner hunger for more. So in need to turn to an external source to feel some sort of positivity, they seek out louder, bigger or stronger fixes to give them that hit of … Read More

Mind fit: Are you exercising your most important muscle?

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

The reason I write this blog is because it’s come to my attention recently that there’s a lot of fear around looking at oneself and the role a person plays in creating their outcomes in life. Which is fair enough – who wants to be held accountable for all the crappy things that happen to them when it’s much easier … Read More

build self-confidence

Have a think about that for a moment. Have you ever taken the time to actually consider whether the people you surround yourself with are a positive influence on you and where you want to go in life? Are they people that inspire you? Or are they people who knock down your ideas and reinforce that any attempt to move … Read More

Follow your heart.

Tamra MerciecaMental Health, Relationship Health0 Comments

We’ve all heard the expression ‘Follow Your Heart’, but what does that really mean? How do we tell the different between what our heart is telling us to do and what our brain is urging us to do? Our heart speaks to us every moment of every day, but most of us have stopping listening to its signal; it’s like … Read More

Think yourself rich

Money can put a real strain on you and your loved ones. It can leave us desperate to find an answer so we can lift the financial burden.

The truth about hypnosis

Tamra MerciecaMental Health0 Comments

For centuries, hypnosis has gone in and out of vogue, but now there is finally sufficient scientific evidence that proves its effectiveness. Having trained in Therapeutic Hypnotist myself I felt I’d write a little blog to lift the veil on what this age old therapy is all about. Forget what you know about hypnosis from movies or television programs. If you … Read More
