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 »

“When I started coaching with Julia I was a little sceptical, but decided that it was worth investing in MYSELF. Boy am I glad that I did! With Julia’s support and encouragement I can honestly say my life has changed. I have a very clear vision for my future, which I never thought I would have. I feel so excited for what’s to come! Julia is amazing, she is a great coach, you can’t help but feel awesome after speaking with her. Thank you for all you have helped me achieve. I look forward to continuing working with you!”

Liz Gallagher

“Working with Julia was the best decision I’ve made for myself. She helped broaden my horizons, get out of my own way and really focus on what is of true importance to me. With Julia’s support and guidance, I learnt how to express myself and embrace who I am with pride. Not only did I gain confidence and clarity, I felt supported to take action on my goals and within six months I began living my dream life! Julia’s positive energy, warm presence and incredible insights made her a delight to work with and I’ll be forever grateful that our paths crossed.”
