Welcome to The Julia Matheson Blog:
the only block is YOU
The new year. It brings energy, excitement, a sense of possibility. But it can also bring doubt, confusion and frustration as you try and navigate your pathway into the new year. It can be a fresh start, or ground hog day. And it all depends on your perspective, and how self aware you are on your biggest limitations and blocks. We're all aiming for our own version of self-actualisation,... Read More »
radical alignment
The theme of alignment has been coming up a lot for me lately. In my coaching sessions, in social media posts, in videos I see, in conversations that pop up - it seems to be all pervasive. I know that whenever these reoccurring messages appear for me, it's happening for a reason (thank you Universe). I'm curious to dive deeper into this theme. Perhaps you need some re-aligning as well?... Read More »
living your values
Values is a big area of focus for my coaching clients. Not only deciphering what they are, but understanding how to craft and create a life that is aligned with those values. A life that honours each and every value you hold true. It's probably no surprise that values work is one of my favourite topics! Have you ever thought about what your values are? Values act as guide lines for... Read More »
mindful dating
So I've recently entered back into the dating scene after a very loooooong hiatus. And this time it feels very different. I don't know if it's down to my age, past experience and feeling a lot wiser than I once was, or whether it's the work I've done within, the mindfulness and self love practice I've been cultivating, or wether it's the combination of all of these things - but this time...

releasing the grip
I've always been interested in the concept of change, and how we, as humans, deal with this unstable uncertainty in our lives. Yet this resistance, this reactiveness, this fear in many of us towards change, makes our reality so much harder to deal with. We (read ME) try to cling to outcomes, experiences, people, emotions, because we are desperately trying to create some sense of control and...

how to find your flow
Where do you lose track of time? What is it that brings about pure joy and happiness? My sister is an artist. She says she loves creating beauty because time stands still for her. She get's in the 'zone' and nothing else matters. Scientists call this the "state of flow". Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is a Positive Psychologist that has contributed pioneering work to our understanding of... Read More »
be the lotus
I'll be real, I've been in a period of intense flatness these past few weeks. Feeling low in mood, un-motivated and quite down. I just haven't felt like myself. It's interesting that my first reaction to this was to push these feelings away, to move through them as quickly as possible so that I could get back to my "good ol self" (yeah, it doesn't work). I've been trying so hard to... Read More »
you are not required to hustle
Taking a sick day is pretty unheard of when you run your own business. But when your body is screaming at you to stop, sometimes that's all you can do. Yesterday I awoke at 2am to nausea and then got to know my bathroom sink very intimately, then my stomach continued to cramp and bloat for the next 24 hours causing me stabbing pain. I'm still not right, but I'm feeling a hell-of-a-lot... Read More »
you achieved your vision, now what?
Lately I've been dealing with a whole new kind of problem. And it's a pretty darn good problem to have. This problem I'm talking about occurs when you look around and realise that most of what you envisaged for your life has actually come into fruition. It's a realisation that crept up very slowly on me, then took my breath away. Slowly but surely I have finally achieved all the goals I... Read More »
be your own guru
I went to see the ever inspiring Danielle LaPorte speak this week. I am still absorbing all of the experience, and my mind is still trying to process everything it heard and saw. But already, one of the most powerful take-away's that's been coming up for me was this: YOU ARE YOUR OWN GURU. Danielle touched on this new-age "addiction" that we all have. We seem to have replaced negative... Read More »

“Coaching with Julia has given me the courage to dig deep and ask myself the big questions; what do I want from my life? and, how do I want to live? Julia has helped me explore, and realise with clarity, not only what I want, but also the person I want to be. Through her constant support, insight, guidance and practical tools, I have identified the values I want to live my life by. I’ve also learnt how to manage the fear that can get in the way of achieving my dreams.
Meeting Julia came at the perfect time in my life. Her belief, positivity, passion and care has helped me grow and gain clarity as a person.”

“I have taught coaching as an academic University teacher – Julia goes beyond anything in my textbook. It is the best money I ever spent. Her coaching is amazing, she is a wonderful active listener. There have been times when I have challenged Julia on how to deal with unexpected non-dreamed of situations that come up. This is where she excels. She knows how to deal with my future dreams and my current reality. I cannot recommend Julia enough. I’ll also say – I did the work. I never expected Julia to be a magic wand. I expected her to be a coach. She has been coach extraordinaire.”
