Spiritual seekers aren't just people who wear robes. More often than not, they are people like me - in the supermarket checkout, dropping kids at school, getting diagnosed with health problems, searching for meaning amongst it all. I am a seeker and my life is, well, like this - pretty ordinary (and awesome). Amid everyday life, somehow (aka grace) I stumbled upon a sense of wholeness that can only be described as freedom.
If you're also longing or seeking or yearning for completeness, I get it - welcome.
p.s. if you wear a robe, you're welcome too!
Along with my husband and four (yes, four!) children, we live in the bushy hills of Wellington, Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Mostly, I'm a stay-at-home mama, I'm also a part-time marketer and content writer, and (in between school runs and house chores) I've written a book!
Why? Because I want people (mothers especially) to know that you do not have to hike the Himalayas, be famous, or have a near-death experience. Liberation is here, right here in the peaks and troughs of everyday life.
Always Arabelle: Unearthing the Extraordinary Ordinary, is a story of finding the freedom that was hidden in my pocket all along. It is a story of life, love, motherhood, illness, transformation and finding the extraordinary in the ordinary.
Amid all the blustering lies the answer to one of life’s great questions: How do we feel at home in with wind? Or, more, how do we live with the hard things that blow our way?
'When you make the present moment, instead of past and future, the focal point of your life, your ability to enjoy what you do and with it the quality of your
life increases dramatically.'
- Eckhart Tolle
