6 Weeks of #GypsetMindset Mentoring That Will Make You Go “Woah!”

 

There is a reason why so much of our time, energy and interest is focused on mindset and personal development. So much so that, before I even released this mentoring program out into the world today, spots were already snapped up. And I’ve only got 7 spaces left. If you want in, you might want to be quick!

 

So why are we all really here? 

It’s about becoming who you are meant to be.

 

Ok. So, becoming who you want to be is an ongoing, transformative process that never really ends. But there is a huge difference between actually being on the path, and not even being anywhere near it. I know what that’s like. I spent many years of my life trying to figure out how to feel comfortable in my own skin; wishing I knew what my purpose in life could possibly be. I felt lost and afraid of both the answers and of not knowing.

 

It was in those years of swishing around somewhat aimlessly, from party to party – from country to country, where I learned to actually listen to my intuition. Something that I always had quite strongly, but happily ignored in favour for more exciting, louder messages. Usually from external sources, and somewhat disconnected from who and what I really am.

 

And then, suddenly, my life shifted and started to take form. I decided to create my own job. On my terms. Following passion. And of course, most importantly, serving others in the best way I possibly could. I asked for guidance from my intuition, got out of my head and learnt to follow my purpose by getting clear on what that actually was, and the role I had to play in the world.

 

All of those experiences have helped me become who I am today. Which is exactly what I’m sharing with you in my final mentoring program for the year #GypsetMindset. Even though the gypset concept is all about travelling, gypset mindset is actually about something else. It’s about becoming who you are meant to be and creating your life based on that.

 

I am so ridiculously excited to be finally sharing this program with you today, which I have been creating to content for all of this year. I wasn’t even sure if it would be ready by the time I wanted to release it, but here we are, with the final two months of the year remaining. Just in time to prepare for a whole new year.

I Want To Be There For You. Here’s Just 1 of the Ways. #GypsetMindset.

Last week we got 100’s of you all excited about the free google hangout that Hayley Carr and I were presenting for you. Due to various technical issues we were forced to cancel the event, but last night, we finally got to get together with all this of you who showed up and rocked our worlds with your questions.

It was awesome in more ways than I could possibly share, but luckily we got it all on video which you can see below. Just because there was so much to say and share, we went overtime by about an hour, but it was so worth it.

 

WE COVERED:
  1. Our stories and how we got started.
  2. How we deal with + face fears.
  3. How we make money.
  4. Our top time management methods that work anywhere in the world.
  5. How to stay fit and healthy anywhere.
  6. Our favourite techy apps, tools and equipment + how we pack our bags.
  7. How we manage romantic relationships + family en route.
  8. Our biggest stumbling blocks and how we managed to get through them.

 

 

WHAT’S NEXT:

This google hangout was a perfect prelude for the next mentoring program I’ve got coming out, starting on Monday the 10th of November. I want to be there for you. Here’s just 1 of the ways.

 

#GypsetMindset.

A 6 week mentoring program where you can ask all the difficult questions and align yourself to the kind of life you truly want.

 

gypset | gyp(d)sɛt|

an emerging group of people, characterised by an unconventional, bohemian approach to life: they have this down-to-earth ease and freedom – so gypset.

mindset |ˈmʌɪn(d)sɛt|

the established set of attitudes and beliefs held by a person or group of people: this town seems stuck in a medieval mindset.

 

 

  • I’ve spent the past 12 years of my life, perfecting my own version of the gypset lifestyle. Which means that I’ve made tons of mistakes, I’ve experienced more than most people do in their lifetime, and I’ve learnt a lot. And it’s not just about travel. It’s actually more about finding out who you truly are, and what your purpose and authentic self and vision is.

 

  • For me, it meant that there was a time that I hitchhiked from Italy, through Spain and into Portugal, to make it to my next festival gig, because my passport had been stolen. All by myself.

 

  • It means that I’ve been proposed to, several times, and in the end, my answer was no. Because I didn’t share enough of the same values with the beloveds that wanted my promise and my hand. Because I wanted something else, someone other, than conventional. Something extraordinary.

 

  • It means I’ve started a business that failed and lost $30,000 in the process.

 

  • It also means that from those ashes and tears, I learnt and grew, and created a business that blossomed. One that I love.

 

Which is how I stand before you now. With all of this to share with you. And a collation of all the questions you ever asked me.

So I created something wonderful. A 6 week mentoring program that takes you from the foundations into your dreams.

 

We often think that in order to feel and experience what we want in life, the world around us has to change. But the truth is, for our experiences to change, we have to change. We have to clean up our thoughts, start making choices that are in alignment with our dreams and values and take action on our intuitions and hearts. When we do that, everything else simply follows and falls into place.

That’s what #GypsetMindset is all about.

 

I can’t wait to share everything I’ve got in store for you over the coming weeks! More details on how to get in on the program are coming soon!

Having An Abortion Is A Really Fucking Difficult Decision. This May Help.

About 6 months ago Adele from Vegie Head emailed me and said “I just bought your Releasing Rituals 7 Day Guide and LOVED it! I’m writing a book for women who have lost their child, and the rituals they can use to support themselves throughout the process. I would LOVE for you to contribute!”

 

Not only is Adele an incredible person with one of the biggest hearts in the entire planet, she has the deepest compassion for love and pain I have ever seen. And being give this opportunity to help and heal through my own experiences was one in a million. So I jumped at the chance to contribute.

 

My story, however, is a little bit different. I confided in her that I had never lost a child through miscarriage or illness. But rather,  that a couple of years ago, I lost a child by choice, per se. Having an abortion is a really fucking difficult decision. And 2 and a half years ago, it was one that I had to make.

 

rituals fb share image

 

 

This story, as you can imagine, is very, very close to my heart and not something I would normally share, but for this book Rituals, I knew it was the right time to open up and show a deeper side of myself. And to also share what helped me.

 

What was really crazy was that, during the time of writing I had sooooooo much resistance to actually bringing the story out of me into words on paper. And not so coincidentally, the man who was involved suddenly came back into my life out of the blue, and we spoke about what had happened for the first time since we had parted ways. Writing this story was cathartic and releasing for me, and I know this story can help others too.

 

I’m not going to go into the details here, but you can buy the book and read the whole story, plus the ritual I used to move on, by clicking on the button below.

New Moon With Partial Solar Eclipse Is Tonight!

This is the second eclipse of the month and serves as a bookend to the most highly eccentric aspect of the month. Take some time today to just breathe. It’s as if you have just witnessed the most radical circus act and your adrenalin is settling back to normal. If there is any way to take a bit of a retreat here just to honor yourself and your authentic self with gratitude and awareness of your many talents, do it. It could just be that you give yourself an hour to be in contemplation or you leave work early to take a walk.

This new moon is a reset point where you get to decide who you are and what you are up to, what you WANT to do and how you are going to express and support it. If you truly don’t know, start with what you are not and do not want to do and work from there. The energy of the eclipse period as well as this new moon will feed these inner realizations with much power and help carry this new alignment forward.

 

2183b03edc81c678994e4ed7c3d484f8

 

The eclipse window preceded by Mercury’s retrograde and commencing with the fiery, lunar eclipse of Oct 8 has been a fast-paced, eventful, life-jarring ride for many.  We are encouraged to ‘invite the child out of the basement’.  Let that part of us walled out of the light-filled domain of the heart, be released from the fear and diminishment of the many lives and experiences we have partaken of to reach this threshold where we can now manifest our divine selves here on the physical plane.  Yes, the backlash is great, as is the support for change.  Many cling out of fear to the past, wary and resistant to letting go of what is familiar.  Don’t we all, to some extent?  Doesn’t the world reflect our need for security in the face of such an amazing leap in consciousness?  We find ourselves in a period of extraordinary transition on the edge where chaos reigns, and we must hold the paradox of ‘don’t know mind’ while mind-altering coincidence and creativity and manifestation in alignment with the dance of the divine has never been more spectacular.

 

Let this New Moon eclipse split you open like a ripe seed pod and sow your dreams into the underworld where they can gestate and release you into your personal power. 

Scorpio says, it’s time to step up and be seen, speak your truths, share your gifts of wisdom, invite in your relationship with the invisible world, and be the master of your life from that place that is deep within your belly and right from the depths that Scorpio rules.

 

Mercury is still retrograde until Saturday, Oct 25 when this mischievous messenger will come to a slow standstill in Libra and begin to regain its degree before retrograde – 2º Scorpio which will take until November 10th.  With Mercury opposed to Uranus, I would look for unexpected truths to present themselves, and seeing familiar situations in a whole new light that unravels a problem knot.  Mars is working harmoniously in the background with the eclipse parade and is also in quintile aspect to Mercury supporting us in all our communication and interconnecting activities.  Mars enters earthy Capricorn where it is exalted on Oct 26.  Mars is action; get ready with your list and tools to move plans forward and get things done in the physical world.

In awareness and esteem of this watery eclipse and in deference to an honored and recently departed teacher, Dr. Emoto, I urge you to whisper and sing your prayers and dreams into a basin of water and bless yourself and the world with this blessed liquid at the eclipse. Invite in and claim your right to have the life you want using Scorpio’s passion to call forth your secret longings.

Are You Stopping Yourself From Doing What’s Really Important? Try This.

Sometimes life decides to take you on an unexpected journey, and when that happens you have a simple choice:

1. Accept what is happening, and make the best of it.

2. Resist what is happening, and turn it into the biggest catastrophe in the hemisphere.

Simple, right?

But not always so. Often we think that by resisting what is happening, we can somehow magically redirect the journey back onto the path we had originally thought we were meant to be on. But that never works and so the whole thing just becomes one, big, giant mess.

IMG_5407

I know, because that’s exactly what I have been facing for the past few weeks. When my van broke down 2 weeks ago, I thought that everything I had worked so hard against was fucked. I was seriously, deeply hurting and sad, and I saw no way beyond this situation. But after two days of mourning and resisting, I gave myself a stern talking to, and decided to let it all go. That’s when I entered the ‘fuck it’ phase. But as soon as I stopped resisting, miracles started happening all around me, and life gave me a whole other path along with a bucket-load of new opportunities.

 

Which is why I wanted  to write about resistance today.

Are you stopping yourself from doing what’s really important by resisting the present moment? Then let’s try this:

 

 

WHAT IS RESISTANCE

Resistance stops you from having, doing and being all that you can in life. It’s the feeling you get when you feel like you “have to”, “must” or “should” do something – when you want things to be different – and is experienced as negativity, usually as a judgement.

Resistance comes from and creates separation because wanting things to different makes you feel like you aren’t already good enough, making you want to protect yourself by resisting.

We think that resisting protects us and keeps us in control but it actually makes us more controllable because we close ourselves off. It’s like a closed, defensive existence that limits our capacity to change and limits the flow of life.

It is a limiting belief that you create to protect your other limiting beliefs, a shield that stops you from truly living.

You think that your resistance stops you from suffering but it actually causes your suffering and limitation. The situation always is as it is – neutral – it’s your resistance that causes you to feel stuck. When there’s no resistance, there’s no stuckness and you are free to change and improve.

 

Your resistance is often far worse than the situation itself and makes you reactive, limiting your ability to handle what is going on and truly improve the situation.

 

In essence, resistance is non-acceptance and it keeps you stuck.

 

HOW DO I STOP RESISTING?

  • Firstly, you can’t try to change resistance. That’s just more resisting.

 

  • Don’t try to be in any state other than the one you are in right now because trying to change what already is creates more resistance.

 

  • Begin by acknowledging the resistance. Notice it. Become aware of it. Feel it. Don’t think about the resistance, feel it. Feel how conflictingly stuck it feels. Become fully aware of what you are feeling at the moment of resistance. Fully feel it. Go into it. Welcome it. Allow it to be there, just for now. Fighting it hasn’t made it go away so welcome it just for now. When you become fully aware of the resistance, you’ll see how trivial and pointless and empty it is. Often that will be enough to make it dissolve and release. Another option that you always have, in any situation, is to accept.

 

  • Accept. Accept the resistance. Allow it to be there. Welcome it. Don’t resist the pain and stuckness, allow it to be there. Accept it fully. Your non-acceptance creates it, your acceptance makes it evaporate and dissolve. As soon as you accept the resistance and accept how you feel right now, your acceptance alchemises your resistance into peace.

 

  • Acceptance is entirely a perceptive process made within. You accept your feelings about the situation and what is right now, not the situation itself. You can still change the situation and take action but any action will come from a place of freedom, free of the limitation of resistance.

 

  • Finally, either take action or don’t. Decide to do something about the situation or don’t. Indecisiveness will create more wanting to change what you’re experiencing, more resisting.

 

Non-resistance gives you freedom. It doesn’t mean that you do nothing, become a passive walkover or accept undesirable situations, it just means that you don’t create inner conflict about what you’re experiencing.
Non-resistance means that any action you take is non-reactive and comes from a place of power and flexibility instead of from a place of defensive, closed-off stuckness.

 

Resistance distorts our perceptions and distracts us from our majestically resplendent and limitless nature.

When you stop resisting, life becomes deliciously more real, you become more real, and more simple. You no longer need to protect yourself. You stop layering distorted protective clouds of resistance over reality. It would seem that you become defenceless without the “protection” of resistance but it is only through non-resistance and acceptance that you can live truly free, immersed in reality, completely unleashed.

When My Van Broke Down Last Week, I Entered the ‘Fuck It’ Phase

Right now, I am sitting on the verandah (balcony) of an old Queenslander (the typical style of house in this part of the world) in a small Australian country town called Gympie, catching up on work things. which in this very instance is my undying need to share my adventures with you.

 

And well…. The past week has been quite an adventure. Very much of the unexpected kind.

 

I’ll start at the beginning. Those of you who have been keeping a close eye on my gypset adventures would know that a little over 2 weeks ago, I bought myself a van in Sydney, to spend the summer traveling around the East Coast of Australia.

I was so excited. It was the first time I’ve owned a vehicle in 10 years, and actually done a road trip sans lovers or others. It was going to be my time, to do what I want, how I want, where I want. With my beautiful coaching business in tow. You know, gypset style!

I drove that van up to Brisbane, where I spent the weekend working at a festival, and then the rest of the week decking out my van. The seats were pulled out; a double bed was built-in, and pretty cane boxes put in as storage. The fairy lights went up, measurements were taken for curtains and all the materials purchased. It was so fun, turning Ruby Tuesday into my home.

I was planning to continue on further north, before it gets too hot and rainy – into the tropics of Cairns the following week. Which is a hell of a long journey, so I placed an ad for a ride-share to copilot with me and share fuel costs. Besides the endless amount of random texts I got asking if I was single (!), a lovely person I did find to join me on the drive to the tropics.

Last Monday, I got up at 5.45, quickly packed up and drove the 20 minutes to where I was to pick up my new copilot. Cue Julien, a Canadian adventurer whose love for this country brought him back a second time to explore the vast lands of Australia. A hello and a hug later, and we were on the road.

 

Up to this point right here, life was sailing so very smoothly. I could have never imagined what happened next.

 

Entering Gympie 2 hours later – a town that has a reputation for being full of crime, alcoholism and general badness – suddenly the van starts making a strange whirring sound. I looked at Julien. He looked back. Then the van started loosing speed. I pressed on the gas pedal. Nothing. Within 30 seconds of driving along perfectly, my van had suddenly died. I pulled over onto the exiting lane until she rolled to a stop, and got out. There was smoke and the smell of burnt water everywhere.

Julien (who to my greatest relief knows a fair bit about mechanics) checked under the hood, and noticed that the hose coming from the coolant to the engine had come off. Upon further inspection, it was clear that whoever had checked the engine before the sale, hadn’t put the hose clamp on, resulting in the engine not getting any water and essential breaking the entire motor. The whole car engine was blown.

To say I was devastated, in that moment, would be an understatement. But most of all, I was in shock. And couldn’t do or respond to anything. All I knew was that the van, my home, that I’d only had for 10 days, was gone. A mechanic seeing the hazards on, stopped by confirming what had happened. Then another local came to see what was going on, and very kindly called  his friend who owned a towing company to come and pick the van up and take us off the road.

 

This is where the miracles began.

 

I was totally lost. I didn’t know whether to cry with powerlessness and sorrow: or scream with anger at the mechanic who hadn’t put that damn hose clamp on properly. In that moment, everything was fucked. But the universe took over.

 

  • The tow truck driver, Rob, and his family kindly took us in, backing the van into the shade of their front lawn, so we could stay in it while we figured out what to do next.
  • My co-pilot Julien, whom I’d literally met 3 hours earlier, took over the gears with everything, as I was in no state or mind to comprehend what to do next. He organised contacting the sales person who had sold me the van, and gave him a good verbal beating.
  • When it became clear that replacing the engine would cost as much as the entire van had itself, he took it upon himself to recoup the money I had spent buying it, as much as possible, by parting it out online.
  • And instead of saying “see ya!” and continuing on, on his merry way (which is probably what I would have done, had I caught a lift with someone and their car died) Julien decided to do something incredibly unexpected. He decided to buy another vehicle, so we could continue on.
  • The tow truck driver and his wife (who have been incredible every single step of the way, offering us everything they could to make things easier) then started searching the area for suitable vans and SUV’s that would fit my bed and everything, to keep this road trip going up north.
  • It was Wednesday afternoon, when we came across an ad on Facebook from someone whose father had died last year, and was selling everything quickly and cheaply. It was there that Julien discovered his 4×4. And bought it on the spot.
  • A week later, we are still the process of getting his car on the road, because this is a slow country town, and getting the car registered takes 10x longer than anywhere else. But everything happens for a reason. So here we are. Here I am. Typing this. In Gympie, on the tow-truck driver’s verandah.

 

There are times in life when you just have to let everything go and let the universe do all the work. I call this, the ‘fuck it’ phase. 

After all, life always falls into place once you’ve let go of expectations of how you thought it should go.

Surrender. Let it go. It’s time for the fuck it phase.

 

I had spent $3,000 plus a whole lot of love, time and planning on this vehicle. It broke my heart to discover that the universe had other plans for me. That this wasn’t meant to be. But I am totally trusting of the process. And in the midst of all this, have been surrounded by angels who have made every part of this experience as kind, loving and gentle as possible.

While she took something away in one quick swipe, she gave me so much more at the same time. The confirmation that no matter what happens, I am always taken care of. The heart-warming, overwhelming generosity and compassion of complete strangers who could have, quite simply, just walked away. A singular message: ‘life is always good to you’.

  1. Wow. This is incredible to read…after you wrote the post about the van breaking down, I just knew everything would be ok for you…law of attraction! ;). Everyone in our lives is there for a reason. We are always safe, we will always be ok and you’re right…once you realize this and let go the fear, it seems like magical things happen. Love you, Vienda! Can’t wait to hear where the next adventure brings you. And three cheers for Julien! Xo

    • Life is so frickin’ magic Abby! I just feel so blessed that I get to experience such wonderful things on an ongoing, continuous basis. In part it’s all the work I do on myself, and the risks I take – but it’s also always the universe confirming that as long as I believe in the magic, it will come. So blessed. And I just LOVE that I get to share these adventures with you! Love you! xo

    • Thanks darling. I am super good. Money and a van gone is nothing compared to health, happiness and human connection. I am just grateful for my incredible fortune that follows me no matter what fuck-ups I do! xo

  2. Vienda! I once had a VW Van named Ruby and she never ran well! I once hoofed it home 6 miles in a snowstorm because she broke down on me. So sorry for the struggles, but it looks like it’s gonna open into something even better. xo

    • Haha Anne! I can’t believe that you had a van called Ruby too!!! Maybe that name is fated to a horrible end? No more Rubys’ then. I know everything is working out just perfectly… Let’s see what magic is up for me next. Iy’s all quite exciting really once I got over what felt like a great loss.

  3. One thing that is so incredible about those moments is how we just keep going on. I’ve been amazed at some of the stuff that’s happened to me and that I’ve seen happen to others and the human spirit just keeps on going. While it may suck, we really are built for survival against the odds and that’s a truly amazing thing.

    Hoping only good things happen next for you xx

    • Exactly! The human spirit is one amazing, beautiful thing. These kinds of experiences are what make life so worthwhile. Just the incredible love that we all share, strangers, friends or lovers. In the end we are all the same and connected. Material stuff – it comes and goes – but this stuff. It stays with you forever! xo

  4. Gosh Lady! Sounds like a movie plot! I am sorry to hear of the troubles but quite happy for you that things have turned around for the better. Best of luck from here, I cannot wait to hear what happens from here on! :) xx

    • I know, I was saying the same thing – this could totally be a movie! But actually, my entire life would make one hell of a movie… If only I could capture it all!

      At this point my plan is simply to get to Cairns; I have a house-sit in the rainforest for 6 weeks there, and in that time find a way to buy another van, and then keep going.

      That’s if the universe will let me! Let’s see what happens next….

Read This If You’d Love To Do #10WeeksofFree But Your Still Trying To Decide (This Will Help)

Sometimes, we are drawn to something.

And then we hesitate.

And question ourselves.

So we start to feel indecisive.

This, of course, is very normal.

 

But imagine if you just followed your heart, and went to where your sprit called you? Without hesitation. Just trusted that, what is for you, is actually, for you.

 

Because the only regrets we have in life, are the things we didn’t do.

Here is a very unique opportunity to work with me 1 to 1, in a beautiful structure where you can discover tour own brand of freedom, and save over $1,700 from my usual coaching fees. I don’t know if I’ll ever be running this program again. So this truly is a one-off chance.

 

I came up with this incredible price structure, because I wanted to give you an opportunity to work with me in a platform that works for both of us, while also being incredible affordable. And because I wanted to take you all on my summer road trip adventure with me, in a way that is sustainable, fun and a growth experience for all involved.

 

When I created this 3 month mentoring program, 10 Days of Free, it was totally lead by soul. Every single component is based on the questions and coaching sessions that I have had over the past 2 years with countless women, who wanted finally feel free in their lives. And not just free, but joyfully and fulfilling free. And so I followed the guidance that I received, and and just let what needed to come out, tumble from me.

 

It’s a work in progress which will evolve as we move forward together for the next 3 months. A couple of days ago the the full moon eclipsed bringing about a time of major transit in our lives. Right now is all about major endings, and brand new, sparking beginnings.

 

It is time to step into the next phase of our destinies. Which is exactly what #10WeeksofFree is about. How do we learn? By being stretched out of our comfort zones where we’re squealing with fear and delight.

 

#10WeeksofFree is a 3 month mentoring program that helps you change the way you think and feel, and to free up all of your potential and bring the unexpected into your life.

 

It’s about growing, stretching, taking a leap of faith, adjusting, refining our natures, and expanding beyond our limitations in order to evolve.

 

Essentially, it’s about being free.

 

Here are the details again:

 

Starting on Saturday 11 October, we begin a 3 month journey together filled with weekly personal, 1 to 1 calls with me, practical steps, homework and accountability to self-exploration and growth.

 

Each week you will receive a support email and a PDF full of insights and the weekly topics and homework to focus on, which will take you on an exquisite journey where real change occurs with this dynamic boost, to make the most of the end of this year and prepare for a truly liberating 2015.And, most importantly, and fantastically, you get individual 1 to 1 coaching time with me every week, joining me intimately on my road trip, as well as getting professional support on your own journey toward a life with much more freedom. Freedom in possibilities, freedom in choices, freedom in life.

What can I expect?

Every Saturday you will receive a support email from me with details on how to prepare for the next week, filled with lots of love and goodness.

Coaching calls will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday of each week of the #10DaysofFree mentoring program, except for the final week, where you will have had all the hand-holding and support needed to take action and change your life, now.They will take place at the same time each and every week, for 30 minutes during which we can focus entirely on you and your personal journey towards more freedom. That’s a whole 2 hours of individualised 1 to 1 coaching per month!

Make sure you save up all your questions for the 1 to 1 session you have with me, so we can focus on what you’re stuck with.
