I recently had the pleasure of being a speaker coach for the incredible author and motivational speaker, Natalie Queiroz. Natalie was eight months pregnant when she was stabbed by her partner in the most vicious attack imaginable.
In the space of nine minutes, and in broad daylight, Natalie was stabbed twenty-four times with a carving knife. She suffered horrific wounds to her lungs, liver, stomach and uterus, whilst the knife missed her baby by a margin of two millimeters, before the arteries in her wrists were methodically severed by the hooded attacker she finally realised was her partner and the father of her unborn child.
She is still standing and stronger than ever, what an inspiring mojo injection this week. I hope it helps and gives you a mojo injection (stay tuned until the end to remember that there is hope and that faith is always stronger than fear).

Mojo injections all round in this amazing episode with Gary Young from The Mindful Enterprise. I am just coming to the end of an 8 week Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC), led by Gary and Craig Ali based on the work of international mindfulness teacher Rob Nairn.
By adopting a mindfulness practice, those on the course are expected to enhance every aspect of their wellbeing (physical, mental and emotional health). Brain imaging studies have proven that regularly practicing mindfulness can rewire the brain to reduce reactivity & stress, as well as enhance parts of the brain linked to focus & concentration, memory, empathy and understanding, all leading to enhanced impulse control and strengthened relationships. I have loved this course and we talk very openly about some lessons from it. I hope it helps you. Jojo x #mojoinjection
