Hello & Welcome, I'm Connie.
I am a life coach, passionate writer and inspirational speaker.
I am on a heart-driven mission to help beautiful souls (like yourself) break free of limitation & a create a life that is filled with freedom, flow & fulfilment.
I am here to guide you on the path of inner transformation and empower you to choose love over fear, serenity over struggle and to listen deeply to your divine inner wisdom.
I am so thrilled that you have found yourself guided here.
You are here because you are ready to create change. You are ready to break free. You are ready to expand.
But maybe right now you feel far away from where you want to be.
Maybe right now, what you desire seems impossible.
But I want you to know something.
I want you to know that no matter where you are, it can be changed.
I want you to know that everything you dream of and desire, is possible for you.
And above all else I want you know that you are not alone.
♥ I know what it feels like to have big dreams and visions that you are holding within your heart, while also feeling limited and riddled with self-doubt that they will ever manifest.
♥ I know how hard it is to battle with a nasty inner critic which tears you down, judges your every move, compares you to others and always makes you feel that who you are and what you do is not good enough.
♥ I know how paralysing it is to live ruled by fear, terrified to express yourself, afraid of being rejected, afraid to fail or make a mistake, and so instead you tone yourself down to blend in.
♥ I know how empty life feels when you are caught in a cycle of chasing goals, striving for future destinations and trying to control every aspect of your life so you can finally feel happy.
♥ I know the struggle of feeling that there is magnificence within you that you can't seem to access, and a potential that is laying dormant and untapped.
♥ I know the pain you feel in your heart every day as you wish and hope that today will finally be the day that life begins to change, and you finally start feeling better.
This is how I lived most of my life... until I discovered how to turn it all around.
For the past 15 years I have been in a journey of self-discovery, deep personal work and spiritual awakening.
I wanted to know how to break free of struggle, fear and limitation and create a fulfilling, abundant and beautiful life.
So, I immersed myself in studying self-development principles, attending workshops and training, investing thousands of dollars in mentoring and reading every book I could get my hands on.
I have dug deep and done the work.
And now I have the incredible opportunity to be able to share everything I have learnt with you.
Here is what I have discovered;
Δ We create our life from the inside-out. Our external world is a reflection and manifestation of the thoughts, beliefs, emotions and energy we carry within. When we change on the inside, life transforms on the outside.
Δ Our relationship with ourselves is the foundation of our relationship with everything else. Self-care, self-love and self-connection are not luxuries, they are necessities to ensure we can show up as our highest, brightest selves.
Δ Our biggest issue is disconnection. Disconnection from our hearts, from our inner wisdom and our true source. Disconnection from love. Disconnection from each other. Disconnection from the true meaning of life.
Δ Love is who we are. Love heals everything, because love is our essence. When we choose love, we are re-connecting with our truth. What we are all seeking is the feeling of being re-united with that love - the love of who we are. But we are looking for it in all the wrong places.
Δ We cannot live a truly fulfilling life unless we are following the wild and passionate call of our hearts. Living from our heads is safe, and logical and may get us success, money and belonging, but can leave us feeling empty. True, lasting joy can only arise when we are living from our heart.
Δ We are always being guided. But we are not always listening. There is a part of us that holds every answer, and will show us every step. We are all intuitive. We are all connected to a higher force that can lead us through this life, if we will allow it.
Δ Surrender will transform our lives, like nothing else will. This is not giving up. This is surrendering our mind's wants and needs, to our heart. Surrendering our plan to the plan of our higher self. Surrendering control, and placing deep trust in the power of this loving Universe.
Δ Self-awareness is the first step to changing anything. The minute we are aware of something, we now have the ability to choose. And in the moment that we make a new choice - to act in a new way, to think differently, to be differently, we have just changed the course of our life.
Δ The purpose of life is awakening. We are not here to become anyone or get anywhere. We are here to unlearn and unravel all of the limitations that are blocking us from embodying and expressing the magnificence of who we truly are.
Δ In any moment we can choose love or fear. We can choose to see our life through the perspective of fear (lack, limitation, struggle, judgment, control, disempowerment) or love (abundance, freedom, eace, acceptance, surrender and authentic power). Both options are available in any moment. Whatever we choose determines how our life feels, and unfolds.
How I got here (my journey)
For a big chunk of my life I felt disempowered, anxious and unsure of myself. I lacked confidence. I struggled with insecurity, panic attacks and depression. I lived in an unconscious and reactive way. It felt that life was something that just happened to me. I seemed to have little, to no power over what unfolded.
I lived my life for everyone else, constantly changing, modifying and altering myself in order to fit in, be accepted and be what I thought others wanted.
Until something happened which changed the course of my life ...
And now the real work began. The inner work.
I had spent 9 years trying to change everything in the external world, chasing happiness, chasing love, chasing success and none of it worked.
It was time to look within.
In my sessions with my coach, we began to peel back the layers of fear, limitation, self-loathing and inauthenticity.
- I re-committed to my meditation practise and discovered how to slow down and tune inwards.
- I created a morning ritual and learnt how to consciously create my day through intentions setting and journaling.
- I discovered how to connect with my heart energy, to prioritise joy, to follow my bliss and listen to what I loved.
- I stopped running from my feelings and began to process the anger, sadness and pain I had been avoiding.
- I built a relationship with my intuition and inner guidance, and began following it's directions.
- I transformed my thinking and healed my patterns of control, judgment, fear, lack and limitation.
- I started loving myself. I practiced affirmations, kindness, self-compassion, acceptance and deep self-care.
- I re-connected with the vision I had seen when I was 19 years old, and gave myself permission to say yes to that heart-driven dream.
- I overhauled my diet and replaced sugar, caffeine and fast food with green juice and whole, organic produce.
- I began writing on a blog called a life of perfect days, documenting my awakening and teaching these principles to others.
Within 6 months my whole life transformed. As I did the inner work, my whole life shifted. I suddenly found myself in a new home, a new job, a new relationship and I felt like a completely new woman.
All of the inner work was actually working.
For the first time in my life, I felt like I was myself. I had peeled back so many layers of inauthenticity and fear that I could finally feel my heart and my truth.
At age 29, I took one of my biggest leaps yet. I signed up for my Life Coach training. My heart told me it was time to bring my passion out into the world in a much bigger way.
I was terrified and had no idea how I would pay for it. I was full of self-doubt, fear of not being good enough and thoughts of why I would fail.
But I said yes anyway. I was a women on a mission, committed to listening to love rather than letting fear stop me.
Within 2 months of beginning my training I was taking on my own clients. I spent 10 months building up a part time business while working full-time and studying. My heart was on fire and I was ready to give this my all.
On November 11th, 2013 (two months before completing my training) I handed in my resignation at my day job and stepped full time into running my own coaching business.
My heart was telling me that now was the time, so I took a leap into the unknown and began the path of living my purpose.
Through my commitment to my inner work, to following my heart, to choosing love over fear, to listening to my inner guidance over my limitations and to showing up daily with a fierce commitment to living my highest potential, I have been able to transform my life.
I have been able to create a life that I truly love (from the inside out).
And I want to help you to do the same.
Which leads us here, to now.

A few more things about me;
I was born under a Taurus Sun: I am determined, stubborn, sensual, pragmatic and grounded. A Capricorn Ascendant: In one word - Ambitious. A Pisces Moon: Intuitive, sensitive, gentle, spiritual, dreamy & creative.
I am addicted to green juice. My favourite combination is kale, celery, cucumber and lemon. I like it strong and to the point!
I am a yoga lover. Give me a room heated to 30 degrees and a strong Vinyasa Flow and I am a happy girl.
I am a total beach baby. Despite growing up in the middle of the city in Melbourne with no ocean in sight, I now can’t get enough of it’s magic. I love nothing more than ocean swims, soft sand runs, sunshine and sunset strolls.
I got my first (and only) tattoo on my 18th birthday. It is a Chinese symbol. Trust me, they were all the rage in the 90's.
I completed my Level 1 Reiki training when I was 12 years old. My mum was a bit of a hippy and wanted the whole family to learn energy healing!
