This Movember we’re Calling Out The Men.

No Comments
In the month that focuses on male health and wellbeing, this Movember, we’re calling out the men. The Rising Vibe strapline is ‘Feel Better. Do Better.’ We focus on emotions to make shifts. By changing the way we think, we can change the way we feel and therefore change the way we show up. When…

Authentic Masculine Energy.

No Comments
We all know a ‘really great guy.’ A father, brother, uncle, friend or work colleague, we’re instantly attracted to their noble heart. They’re kind. Respectful. Assertive yet tender and protecting. We feel good when we’re around them, safe and empowered. They harness their authentic masculine energy.  Yet in today’s high pressured, fast paced, target driven…

Bring emotion back to business.

No Comments
You don’t often see or hear that. ‘Emotion’ and ‘business’ in the same sentence. Traditionally, we don’t talk about our feelings and emotions at work. We leave them at home and we just get on with it. All this emotional chat is incense burning, sandal wearing pink and fluffy BS and has no place in…

Giving up too easily? It’s just not cricket.

This Summer I decided to sponsor a cricket team, partly because my Brother plays for them but mostly because, as the classic reggae song states, I don’t like cricket, I love it! I come from a family of cricket fans. Watching the cricket immediately makes me feel better. Sitting outside on a warm summers day…

40, single and childless – a shame story.

All this month we’re calling out our shame. We’re bringing it into the light so that it turns to dust. This week a very brave friend of mine has decided to call out her shame of being 40, single and childless. Here’s her story. Tell me how you came to be 40, single and childless.…

The shame hangover.

No Comments
Getting wasted seems to be a widely accepted pastime in western society. Unless you’re teetotal you’ll have almost certainly felt the pain of waking up with a banging head, sick stomach and crippling fatigue that can make even the smallest task seem like a massive effort. A classic hangover will always lower our vibe. But…

Shame, Tradition and the Royal Wedding.

Don’t get me wrong, I love tradition. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the turkey, trimmings, family rows and cold weather. Christmas abroad you say? Oh dear God no! But there is something about tradition that can lead to shame. It can push us into doing things that don’t sit right with us. We’re strong armed…

Call out your Shame!

Shame. Ugh. It really is one of the worst feelings isn’t it? On the Rising Vibrational Scale it’s right the way down at the bottom. Shame comes from the most negative, destructive thoughts and drives the same feelings. If left unchecked, shame can have a devastating impact. Shame shows up everywhere and we need to…

Corporate Contortionists.

No Comments
Feelings and emotions are everywhere. We’re human. Humans have lots of feelings and emotions. So why in business are they rarely encouraged or spoken about? We’ve all heard the term ‘PMA’ (Positive Mental Attitude) or listened to conversations around how to stay motivated, driven and passionate. But you won’t often hear dialogue around resentment, anger,…
