You’re More Than Just Your Body



The body is the most beautifully advanced piece of kit we will ever own but in reality we are merely ‘looking after it’ while we are here, it too shall pass, it will change and it will become dust, don’t fear old age and death of the body, they are just different parts of the same journey, neither good nor bad.

There is no right or wrong way to live your life or the choices you make but as Bruce Lee once said…

“It’s like a finger pointing away to the moon. Don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory.”

You are so much more than just a body, love it and enjoy it but don’t let it define you.

Your body is the tool of your soul, let it take you on a journey that goes much much deeper…

Don’t let your Body Define you

When you’ve taken your body on many transformations you realise that the physical goal posts that you set and are always striving for keep moving, there is always something you would like to change, no matter how muscular and shredded you are.

I came to the conclusion that just focussing on just my physical appearance was not enough and wasn’t giving me the answers that I was looking for. I needed to take not only an outward journey with my body but an inward journey with my soul.

This started in 2014 and it combined my journey to a plant-based diet, which you can read about in my recent book Plant Powered, with my exploration into my spiritual world that led me to experience 21 Ayahuasca ceremonies so far, a trip to the Peruvian Amazon jungle and becoming qualified twice as a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner in 2015 and again in 2019, I’m currently doing my Reiki Masters certification.

I’m not your normal Online Personal Trainer…I go a little deeper 😉✨🙏

I want to take you on a journey and within that journey there are many other journeys that you will go on, and a few of them you won’t have realised they were what you needed until you got there.

There are 3 distinctive paths that I have moulded my Online Coaching on:

The Physical Path – This pathway is the most common route to my coaching that most people first seek out. We live in a physical body, in a physical world and we understand the outer world much easier than our inner world and our energetic body.

So this is where we begin, using movement and exercise to really connect and ground you onto this path, pushing you out of your comfort zone, so that you can grow beyond your physical limitations showing you what is possible if you’re willing to believe in yourself, trusting your body and the life journey that you are on.

The Nutritional Path – I often say that the journey from a meat based diet to a plant based diet is a journey of increasing consciousness in itself.

It forces you to question the current paradigm, it asks you to think outside of the box, it requires you to understand the interconnectivity with all things, to understand the cause and effects that our food choices make on the world around us and it connects you with the trauma and suffering that is inflicted on animals and the planet due to our perception of the planet and living creatures as commodities and resources rather than our equals.

Now you are grounded in your body, connected to the earth and other beings, eating a plant based diet that will help you to feel spiritually lighter, you are beginning to reawaken to the energetic infrastructure that creates life all around us.

The Energetic Path – Or the unseen path, the chakras, the Qi channels, the auras, the lifeforce energy that pervades through all beings, that brings energy into life and gives life energy.

These areas can become blocked or stagnant and if we are to functional optimise all areas of our life we must keep the life force energy flowing through us, that energy is all around us, it is there for all of us to use, there is an infinite flow of life force energy available to each and every one of us, we just need to consciously connect to it.

This is where I utilise Reiki Energy Healing and more specifically over the last year in lockdown Distant Reiki Healing session with my clients, by tapping into Universal Energy (this is what Rei-Ki stands for in Japanese)

I use the power of conscious thought and intention to connect with that Universal Energy source and my clients along with techniques that I have learned (I am a Reiki Level 2 practitioner, currently studying to be a Reiki Master.) to send Reiki energy to my clients whilst they are in a meditive state. Reiki and energy itself is consciousness and will flow to areas of the body that need it the most. For more information on Reiki go here…

Movement and Exercise, plus Plant Based Nutrition and Deep thinking then connected with Energy Work can take you on a life journey that you never even considered when you first came to me, I will help to reconnect you to your most authentic self and with that, you will rediscover your life path.

Once you have tapped into these 3 pathways you will grow spiritually in a way that far exceeds your initial desire and expectations of the purely physical goal you first came to me with.
