Welcome to The Julia Matheson Blog:
the power of a vision
I had a moment today that filled me with so much awe. My Vision had actually come to LIFE! I literally was experiencing, in real time, what I had dreamt up over 6 years earlier in my mind. . . The very first time I sat down to craft my life vision, I saw myself sitting with a client (I had no idea what "work" I was doing yet, I just knew it was with people, it was totally fulfilling...

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 »
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...

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...

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 »
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 »
play to your strengths
You will excel only by maximising your strengths, never by fixing your weaknesses. You don't have to stick your head in the sand about what may need improving, but the point is not to FOCUS on it. Weakness fixing is damage control not development. Damage control can prevent failure, but it will never elevate you to excellence. Strengths work is often a foreign concept for a lot... 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

“Julia’s Workshop was the first time I’ve actually sat down and thought about my purpose in life. It was so refreshing and an experience I’ll never forget. I gained a deeper understanding of myself and my life purpose, and was then able to realise how my values and goals can now align with that. The tools and insights I gained from Julia’s Workshop have helped keep me on track ever since!”
