Xmas Videos: Week 1

Ola my friends!

I trust you’ve had a great start to the Xmas Season! If you follow me on Instagram then you know that for the past month, Nicola and I have been working our butts off to get out a video everyday between December 1st and December 24th! I’ve wanted to do this for the past 3 years, but hadn’t had the support to do this until now! I’m so grateful to be able to do this and Nic and I are so excited to share our work with you!

The majority of the Xmas videos are “Emma’s Xmas Questions”. In these videos, I introduce some of my favourite, most creative and entrepreneurial people. I also, introduce you to some of my loved ones. The videos are inspired by Ellen Degeneres’ Burning Questions. I set a timer, ask my guest random questions and they have to hit a bell! The difference is, I’m Emma, not Ellen, AND all the questions are related to how my guest celebrates Xmas 🙂

We’ll still have our weekly Monday night vlog, and there’ll be the occasional info video too.

Your Brain on Visualisation: Why & How it Works

Whether you’re looking to accomplish a business goal, attract romantic love into your life, or boost your emotional and physical wellbeing, visualisation is a tool that will help you get there more effectively and efficiently.

In this recording of a recent workshop at Sanya Eco Spa, we speak about the science behind visualisation – what’s happening in the brain that makes it such an effective tool. We also practice a visualisation together and you’ll end the video with tools to keep practicing it on your own.

Cracking the Code to a Beautiful Relationship

Being in a relationship is like being in an elevator with someone who you like but who speaks a different language to you. It’s confusing! And though you want to please each other, you often find that you’re getting the thumbs down.
There’s this beautiful concept called the 6 Human Needs and when Pete and I began to understand this concept and apply it to our relationship, we experienced a massive spike in our trust, closeness and passion.
