MINDS OF STEEL… A tribute to some great speakers in Liverpool

A Tribute to Liverpool’s New Energy

We are literally changing the world thought by thought. Now this is my newest revelation (not really that new – but new enough).

I now am coming out, yes right out of my own invented closet,I am delighted to actually be a re-invented person.

My new found confidence – yes I know you all thought that I was the epitome of confidence but that was an exterior, this is an inner confidence, a better feeling of well being, and a brand new squeaky toy of inner self worth. And now that I have found it I am never letting it go.

This has not been an easy quest but it is one mission I accepted years ago but it’s only really now I am fully launched as a “New Thinker” a deliberate, conscious thinker, a person who now through the practices I have been doing everyday like it was my job I have become a RE-INVENTION of my former self.

My mind is now setting better rules for myself, my mind is allowing me to be, well in purest essence. Just ME.

I am sitting at my laptop its 6.10 am on a Sunday morning in January, I have my candles lit, the log burner is also lit and sending out glowing embers of warmth on my world, I am in my new home, my little Jas Dog is asleep in her bed by my feet and I am in awe of my re-invented new self. Oh don’t get me wrong, It’s not the home you would see in “looking through the key hole” A celebrity mansion in Beverley Hills. No, but it is my space that I love. I have created in my mind a new understanding of what It is to be happy, feel wealthy, and feel loved. I am allowing. It is so apparent to me that I have reached a new alignment mentally.

And … yes, it was always already there – I just didn’t see it.

And yes in the words of Michael Buble “and it feeeellllsssss gooood”

No good wishing I had known earlier that it was ok to be me, just better to start now enjoying who I actually am.

So this week I hosted an event I dared myself to do, “The Minds Of Steel” Event in Liverpool. This is a spin off event from my meet ups “Inspire Yourself Now” which I have been running for about 3 years.

I was starting to have a variety of mindset changes whilst running the meetups. I realised that my own mindset needed some work. I started to feel that it wasn’t enough for me to stand up and give my teachings, that it was all futile. It was a great thing to back off for a while to give myself some time to re-align my self. I have emerged stronger and more confident with new, better idea, and I hope a different way of putting them across without judgement and with love and compassion. I have a really big desire to share with others and genuinely help people.

I can see the fakes and it affected me. I also felt too much pain for the suffering of others, this had to be addressed. We cannot go through life feeling the pain of everyone who is suffering, we cannot go down with every sinking ship. We must stay strong and healthy in ourselves. If we go down too, then we not only suffer mental pain it leads to physical in balance and illness.

Then always in life there will be those who jump onto the proverbial band wagon because they can see a lucrative opportunity, they think they have the answer, the truth is the answer is within us all to find our way somehow.

But Liverpool has the right people gathering in all kinds of venues, groups are emerging big and small. Classes are being taken to inspire and encourage people to seek out their dreams with a whole host of methods that I alone could never have thought of let alone attempted to achieve. Energy of the New Minds are emerging, we are one by one creating a new vibe…

Liverpool is a awesome city breathing new positive, up lifting thought into its residents. I for one believe that if we encourage others to speak the talk of uplift those around you then one by one we can help to change the world. No more “it’s futile” for me – Once we start rolling others follow – and they are.

Back to the event. I want to take this moment in time to publicly thank all those who attended the event and made it so special. Personally my mission was to shed some light on the thoughts that we can raise our energy level and I used the Tom Cruise Movie Clip with Cameron Diaz oh how safe she would be with him or without him.

I used it in the sense of raising your vibrational energy to up here and down there. I know that we have the ability to change our energy levels when we recognise them. The other speakers gave a whole insight into a variety of topics.

First up was Jonathan Cunningham MBE – this guy is a ball of energy and his talk was about 4 things we could do to enhance our productivity – he runs 2 care homes and a company called Storm in Merseyside where he deals with Health and Safety issues and his passion is to help care homes become better.

Then we had Luke Gilham who I met randomly in Costa Coffee, he was reading a book on being positive so that was a fantastic image to see. A young person actually reading something that will change the rest of their life. As Lukes talk unfolded it turned out that he had also changed his career path to embark on something that he was more passionate about. The Gym, the mind and it reminded me of My Royal Navy days. As a Physical Training Instructor our motto was “Mens Sano in Corpore Sano” – A healthy mind in a healthy body.

The two really must be as good as each other.

Luke is an inspiring young man who can not only get you fitter but encourage you to be mentally strong too. Now that’s worth paying for. So here’s how you can follow him and change your body and your mind the Luke way.

and his facebook

Then we heard the brilliant strength of Amanda Moss who owns Liverpool Lifestyle magazine, she runs the Lifestyle awards, the Liverpool and Manchester Fashion Weeks, owns a home in Cyprus, runs retreats and has six fabulous children. Her message was one of “I am amazing” and she certainly is. But she wants you to feel amazing too, and by sharing some of her life with the audience it became apparent how she has literally changed her mindset to “a mind of steel”

Here’s her links.

Liverpool Lifestyle Awards

Her PR details


Amanda is running a retreat in Cyprus in April and there are a few spaces left !! So if you fancy re-grouping in the sun then get in touch with her for more details.

Then we heard from the beautiful Adriana Mendez-Snowden. Now, talk about Re-Invention !! she has taken this to a whole different realm of reality. In her heartfelt, beautiful speech she gave insights into how she has changed herself and her life to become a stronger, more in control person with a greater happiness. Her word to remember is “Resilience” Oh my she brought tears to my eyes. Love this girl…..

Here is a link to her website


The lovely Marie-Claire Ashcroft bounced up on stage to give her talk and she inspired the audience with her honesty and ability to keep going no matter what (you’ll understand more when you watch the video).

She is evolving as a photographer and blogger, she is helping people with confidence issues and teaches people to bounce back as she does.

Here is a link to her web site (warning contains strong language)


Next up was a lovely lady called Les Roberts, who is a hypno therapist and works with adults and children to bring about changes to enhance their lives. Les gave a bubbly speech and included the words from a Michael Buble Song which is always a lovely thing to hear (one of my favourites) the key words

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by
You know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good
I’m feeling good

Les is based in Merseyside and can be contacted via this link.


Finally we listened to Phil Steele, he never fails to deliver something new for us. His talk included discussion about Dualism, how its ok to be spiritual and still “have stuff” He’s so upbeat and personable – last year I became a Reiki Master with Phil and have encouraged many people to become reiki trained with him, he’s a clever one with all the healing tools in his box but also a masters in psychology, a book coming out this year and a hypnotherapy training company – watch this space… this lad is going far.

Here’s how to get in touch with him.


The evening was energy lifting with lots of standing ovations and upbeat motivational music by Carl Foster – we played binaural tones also to show how you can change your own vibe depending on what you are listening too.

Contact me if you wish to buy any of Carls music – the Binaural beats are £10 (there are loads of them) and the Motivational up beat music is £10 for about 10 minutes – You get them sent to you in a drop box which you can use via your phones or computers etc. I’ll help Carl to send you the music.

Please get in touch with any of these speakers and great leaders in Liverpool. Collectively we can all make a difference.

There are new groups popping up on meet up – go to the ones you are drawn to.

I’ll be doing some more also. So you can contact me on gillfell@ymail.com or the meet up site.
