Commitment to Growth Even When It’s Tough AF

by Thishiwe Ziqubu

New moon. New cycle. Another opportunity to grow.

Fierce August. My goal is to much more meaningfully and practically choose love, love of self, kindness to the self, stillness, awareness, discipline as well as movement and practices that attend to the needs of body, mind and soul. Even when it’s scary AF.

IMG_3090August is my birth month but for the past few years it has not profoundly been a month of celebration but pain as it is the month wherein I lost my mother. Also, as some sort of sick trend, I generally find myself suffering a similar type of work overload and burnout around this time of year. Even when I think I’m working on managing myself, my habits and my time better, I still find this time of year to be highly stressful. I tend to deplete my energy resources to an unhealthy point.

Not this Fierce August.

In the words of a popular musician, not sure who, ‘let’s just be real, let’s just be honest’ … It’s been a rough time due to health issues and career burnout. It has been a dark week where I also found myself losing out on a much-desired career opportunity that I was heavily invested in because I was physically and emotionally not well enough. Henceforth, I have not been able to move through life as fluidly as I would like to while dealing with these untimely demons. (more…)

Energy Management

Guidance for the creative by Lex LaFoy | BSocSci (psych.phil)

Energy Management exists on different levels: the first and easiest to understand would be:

Managing your energy
Managing your time
Managing your sleep; your rest and activity cycles.

Ensure that you wake up early enough. Start your day off with some squats. And develop healthy habits and routines: Exercising your physical and mental capacities in the form of meditation, mind clearing or what I call zero-thought (which is a by-product of meditation). (more…)

What it Means to be a Creative

Guidance for the creative by Lex LaFoy | BSocSci (psych.phil)

The reason we’re called creatives, is because we’ve chosen the path of pure creation. We choose to create and we acknowledge our role in creation and creating on the daily. Creating is making something from ‘nothing’. ‘Nothing’ is an arbitrary term. Because one could see nothing in the ground where seeds live. The realm of ‘nothingness’ is arbitrary according to dimensional sight. Because one looking at only above ground may see ‘nothing’ yet in the next few months see ‘something’.

Finding Fear’s Place: Conquering and Accepting Fear #ngonyamaforce

by Obakeng Moatshe

Two years ago while driving I made a pretty bold statemeWith each fear that has been faced, a new aspect of my self has been birthed.2nt to the universe, I said: “by the time I die I will be a fearless woman.” Now, who would even say something like that? At the time I don’t even think I truly realised the gravity of such a statement. I now know to be more careful with the things I say as my team (my spiritual team of guides, angels and ancestors) makes sure that I keep my word.

Since making this powerful statement I have been placed in situations that allow me to test my resolve in facing my fears. This hasn’t been easy but it has been worth it. With each fear that has been faced, a new aspect of myself has been birthed.

So, here are my two cents on where fear belongs.

Being who you are meant to be


It takes compassionate courage to be who you Are meant to be...

by Nothemba Mxenge

As a Professional Life Coach, I travel this long unwinding road where every turn, whether accidental or intentional, is the manifestation of the divine self. Throughout my career, I have learnt to find the courage to choose what is right for me and these are the lessons I impart through Epiphany Life Coaching.

In the beginning

My career started with my chemical engineering degree because my father gave me three options: Engineering, Law or Medicine. I chose Engineering because there was no engineer in the family, being the first Engineer and only Engineer seemed much more exciting. I have always been diligent, focussed, ambitious and goal-oriented in my approach to my studies and career, and so I moved up the ladder quite quickly. (more…)
