The school of life

Tamra MerciecaMental HealthLeave a Comment

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

I’m sure I’m not the only one who struggles with life balance from time to time. I am a Libra after all, so my life lesson is balance, if you’re one of those lovely Astrology-nerds!

Life: Our biggest teacher

Tamra MerciecaMental HealthLeave a Comment

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

Do rules lead to nourishing experiences or do they disassociate us? This is a question I pondered while visiting Bali last week. My first visit to the busy tourist island was an eye-opener in more ways than one could imagine. Let’s begin with the roads. Rules are thrown to the curb in favour of interactive driving. What you soon realise … Read More

Are you leaping from small zone into big zone?

Tamra MerciecaMental HealthLeave a Comment

The comfort zone is an interesting phenomenon. Many people have quite an attachment to the good ‘ol comfort zone, sitting in it because it’s so, well comfy. It’ s like a big old lounge, it wraps around you, keeping you safe and secure; you know what to expect because it’s the lounge you’ve had since you can remember. But is this … Read More

Script Your Own Life

Who’s writing the script for your life? Can you honestly say you’re the star, the director, the producer and the scriptwriter? And if not…. Why? As some of you know I’m in talks to have my own story, Getting Naked – The Dating Game, turned into a major motion movie. But that got me thinking…. I may be scripting my … Read More
