Welcome to The Julia Matheson Blog:
embracing the wild
I went to an amazing event last night at The School Of Life (yes that's actually a thing!) called "Embracing The Wild". This event was designed to explore one question: What is the relationship between nature and our emotional wellbeing? Could this event have come at an any better time? I literally have just launched my first INSPIRED HIKE because of this very reason! This event spoke... Read More »
are you committed or attached?
Do you know the difference in being committed to something, or someone, but not being attached? This is a concept I work on a lot in my private coaching sessions. It's an easy one to grasp logically - but a whole lot harder to put into practice in your real life. Understanding, and more importantly, embodying this can have huge implications for how you live and experience life. From... Read More »
prioritise your passions
You know what fuels you, what you love, what puts a smile on your face, and what makes you feel whole. So why is it then that you often don't make time for these things? The simple answer - you're not prioritising them. You have a choice, every single day, as to what you focus your energy on, what gets your attention and time. Yet more often than not, it's your passions - the things that... Read More »
danger: external goals
If you follow me on social (insta/facebook) you'll know that I've been feeling ALL the feels right now. You will also know that I am, and always have been a big sharer! (sorry not sorry). This stems from my core belief that vulnerability is a strength, and that we have so much to learn and gain from each other's experience. So this is what's fuelled today's blog post  (. . and probably every... Read More »
know you are guided
I've written before about the glorification of "busy" and how it's not serving anyone (you can read my blog "You are not required to hustle" here.)  And at this time of year, I am gently reminded again of the importance of generating flow and ease in our lives. How beautiful it is to  s l o w  the pace of life right down. This period for me after the hectic pace of December and Christmas... Read More »
Getting unstuck with goal setting
My clients often come to me for coaching because they need help in moving their life forward. They feel STUCK. Stuck in a rut. You know the feeling, like you are trying to move through thick quicksand, and everything just feels  r e a l l y  hard. Unlike other professions that may dive into your childhood and past experiences, life coaching is heavily focused on your future goals and... Read More »
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...

buddha’s teachings #101
So as you know (if you follow me on social), I've been deep diving into a meditation and mindfulness course for the past 5 weeks. We're only half way but boy have I learnt so much already. My biggest take-away so far? That I can gain so much more peace, sweetness and joy from any moment by simply slowing down, and being truly present to the task at hand. It sounds simple I know, and...

the fear of failure
Failure is actually PART OF success. "We need to accept that we won't always make the right decisions, that we'll screw up royally sometimes - understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it's part of success."  - Arianna Huffington It sounds crazy I know, but when you look at all the wildly successful individuals in the world - Thomas Edison, Michael Jordan, Bill Gates -...

leaving a legacy
Every single one of us leaves a legacy. Your very existence has an impact on the world - whether you intend it or not. So, how do YOU want to be remembered? I was reminded of the notion of legacy powerfully last night, as my family attended the official opening of a building named in my late Aunty Sandra's honour. She had served most passionately for four decades at her workplace... Read More »

“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.”

Laura Garner

“Julia inspires me to be better than I am, and to live in true possibility. Through her coaching and unique ability to get me to think outside the box, I was able to write powerful goals, a passionate Vision, and determine what contribution I am to people and the world. I had some powerful self-realisations about what I do and don’t want for my life, and how to achieve this every single day. Julia takes the fear out of writing goals and brings fun to the process. Through Julia’s coaching I was able to let go of my past fear of not being perfect. I am now vulnerable, real, and go after what I really want – and not what I felt others wanted for me. I have a heart full of love. I am learning not to be scared of imperfection and embrace failing in order to grow and succeed.”
