Introduction to Meditation

I’ve been practicing meditation for so long I assume that everyone vaguely interested in spirituality meditates, and everyone knows how to meditate. I have been surprised a couple of times lately when people have told me that they don’t meditate, or they don’t know how to meditate.

In my experience meditation is one of the most important keys to mental health and wellbeing. In this post I share some benefits of meditation, some different types of meditation and give an outline of my personal meditation practice.

Dealing with Imposter Syndrome

I think most people have experienced imposter syndrome at one time or another. I talk about dealing with imposter syndrome in my free guide Happiness Club for Unlimited Self-Esteem, my online course for self-esteem and in my previous blog post about overcoming fear and imposter syndrome.

I recently learnt a new trick for dealing with imposter syndrome, when I completed Subscribed with Amy Porterfield. Amy taught us the ‘4 Ns’ exercise during one of her mindset sessions. Continue reading “Dealing with Imposter Syndrome”

Feeling Hopeless

It’s been nearly five years since I stopped taking anti-depressants after being on them for twenty-six years. I still have times when I feel depressed and hopeless but luckily those times are much less frequent and pass more quickly. There are rare instances when I feel hopeless to the point of suicidal. Thankfully these only happen very occasionally, and they pass very quickly.

Beating the January Blues

As Blue Monday approaches, I want to write an article about beating the January blues. I often find that January can be a depressing time. For me this is usually for a few reasons. Firstly, I find it can be depressing going back to work after a break. Overindulging in sugar, carbs, and alcohol during December and over the festive period has a knock-on effect on my physical and mental health. This year we have the added worry of the cost-of-living crisis. Plus, the weather doesn’t help. In this blog post I share my tips on beating the January blues.

The Little Black Book of Manifesting Magic

Would Danni’s little black book of manifesting magic deliver when she needed it most?

“Maybe I’m too fat for a string bikini,” I pondered, as I scrolled though the two-pieces on the website of a High Street brand. “Some might say I’m too fat to wear a bikini full-stop.”

“Who would say that, Danni?” asked Matt, my boyfriend, innocently with a twinkle in his eye.

“You are such a git!” I exclaimed, but I couldn’t help laughing.

Peeling the next layer of the onion

Ironically since I launched Happiness Club for Unlimited Self-Esteem, it seems as though lots of things have gone wrong. I had a relapse of depression. My boyfriend Andy, aka Mr Sexy Pants (MSP), and I had a few issues and nearly split up! I had problems in my day job. My low self-esteem/self-worth issues reared their ugly head.

Tapping for Anxiety

Tapping for Anxiety

I recently recorded a Tapping for Anxiety video for my Happiness Club YouTube channel. This is a basic Thought Field Therapy (TFT) Tapping sequence that can help with anxiety, fear, worry and phobias. Try it out and let me know how you get on with it.

It should help with anxiety in the moment, but you might need to book a one-to-one session for more deep-seated anxiety. The video also includes a mini sequence at the end. This mini sequence can be used in the moment if you don’t have time to do the whole thing.

The Tapping for Anxiety sequence will work for most phobias, although the sequence for phobia of spiders uses a different algorithm.

Invoke your Freakin’ Goddess

Second in a series of posts to increase confidence and self-esteem

As part of my daily prayers and rituals I set an intention to remember I’m a Freakin’ Goddess. Throughout the day I visualise myself stepping into my power and imagine my guides, guardians and angels surrounding me; protecting me and guiding me in all that I do. It is an incredible feeling. I set an alarm on my phone that says, “Remember you’re a freaking Goddess!” as an extra reminder. Sometimes I even sing, “Remember You’re a Goddess” to the tune of ‘Remember You’re a Womble”, which my partner Andy, aka Mr Sexy Pants (MSP), seems to find amusing.

Self-worth and bit pics

Self-worth and bit pics

Bit pics and how they are linked to a Woman’s Self-Worth

When I was single, I never ceased to be amazed by men sending me pictures of their bits. I’ve been in a relationship for over six years now but my single, and recently single friends, tell me bit pics are still very much a thing. I do not want to see pictures of my boyfriend’s bits, let alone a random stranger from Tinder or Plenty of Fish.
