The “dark night of the soul”
Poppy Cross Blog

1y ago
The “dark night of the soul” is a term that goes back a long time. It’s used to describe a time/s in life when things suddenly feel meaningless and one’s inner state feels deeply depressed. Nothing makes sense anymore, there’s no purpose to anything. Sometimes it’s triggered by some external event, some disaster perhaps, on an external level. The death of someone close to you could trigger it. The meaning that you had given your life, your identity, relationship, career, habit or belief system that determined your activities, your achievements, your purpose and what you considered to be import ..read more

Dream baby Dream: a law of attraction exercise to inspire pure escapism and joy

As human beings it’s our default setting to imagine the worst. Historically, being vigilant of danger is what kept us safer from being eaten by lions and out of harms way. Yet in today’s world we are of course (unless we happen to find ourselves roaming the African savannas!) not in danger of getting eaten by lions, but, our brain’s can still be triggered by unfavourable events to make us feel the same lion-threat is there. This renders many people into hyper states of anxiety and panic. The good news however is that we can learn to consciously choose a more appropriate response for the differ ..read more

Who are you to be A Life Coach?
Poppy Cross Blog
by Poppy

When I tell people I meet that I’m a Life Coach one of the first frequently asked questions I get is (put simply); What gives you the authority to tell people how they should live their lives? And when someone doesn’t know what Life Coaching is all about, it’s absolutely a fair one. The assumption and belief held by those who ask this question is that the role of a Life Coach is to tell people how to correctly live life and that we (us Life Coaches)  believe we know it all. This couldn’t be further from the truth! The key principle that good Life Coaches understand is that there is no rig ..read more

The  challenges of 2020 have been profound and unprecedented.  I know and am extremely grateful for how fortunate I’ve been to remain well and safe with a secure income this year yet, even so, there are times when the uninvited upheaval to every-day normality has taken a toll.  When I fled London nearly two weeks ago to take refuge for lockdown II, I warmly remembered some wisdom from the Buddhists which brought powerful, positive and productive perspective for the weeks ahead. The wisdom comes in the following metaphor. The Buddhists say that any time we suffer misfortune, two ..read more

The truth About Self-Love 
Poppy Cross Blog
by Poppy
3y ago
We are often told that we should love ourselves and give ourselves some love. Yet sadly, explanations of why this is so fundamental are thin on the ground and so too therefore are the suggestions of how we can love ourselves, what this will add to our lives and most importantly – how we inevitably benefit exponentially if we choose to.  First up let’s remove the “should”. Tell someone they “should” do something and watch how quickly they turn in the other direction instantly drained by the drudging despair of “should”. What I’d like to offer you instead is a choice because that’s really w ..read more
