Everything is Connected

This year, 2015, is an 8 year in numerology..meaning the numbers that make up 2-0-1-5 add up to equal the number 8.

The number 8 when turned on it’s side, is the symbol for infinity, and interconnectedness.

In short – this is a magical year for abundance and prosperity for all of us.


All aspects of our lives are intricately connected to one another, similar to the beautiful symbol for infinity.

We are holistic beings.

Our health, our relationships, our mindset, our money, our success, our joy, our higher self /spiritual self, ALL OF IT is connected. And, each of us is also connected to the Universe as a whole.

When something in our lives feels disconnected or out of alignment, it can throw off many other areas of our lives as well. 

Let’s take the body as an example. Have you ever found that a pain in your knee or ankle or even shoulder could very well have originated in your back or hips? I had this very experience this past year. I had an injured right shoulder and left knee and had no recollection of any specific incident that could have coursed these things to happen. After a few visits to an incredible physiotherapist, it turned out that my hips were out of alignment (from the birth of my now 4 year old daughter) causing my ENTIRE body to function poorly (even including my liver!) and so caused a great deal of pain and discomfort for me for a very long time. My liver then caused other problems, all of which made it hard for me to exercise freely or properly. Not feeling my best also led to not being able to perform my best in all other areas of my life. It is ALL connected.

Sometimes it takes a painful experience to fully understand just how interconnected it all really is for each of us. Let me be your example. Don’t suffer the pain and wasted time that I did in order to figure this one out.

When any area of our lives is out of alignment it will definitely affect the other areas of our lives as well.

Knowing this is a huge advantage.

When you plan your goals for this incredibly abundant year ahead of us – plan first as a whole person or being.


How do you want to FEEL?

What goals or lifestyle changes would accomplish this feeling?

What steps need to be taken to reach those goals?

When will you do each step?

Some life areas I always consider when sitting down to plan my goals are:

  • health/fitness
  • income/savings
  • business/career
  • living environment
  • relationships
  • passions/hobbies
  • spirituality
  • travel/adventure
  • personal development (what learning are you doing to grow as a person?)
  • goals/dreams
  • stuff (yes, stuff is important and fun too!)

This is me in a shark cage in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Durban, South Africa last April.


The bottom line here is this:

When your LIFE works, everything else works too.


Start with you as a whole and the other pieces will come together for you as well.


In connected abundance,
