Mauri ora! Blessings of good health to you and welcome to Rootslovewater™ a blog committed to nurturing natures from the roots up.


Hey, I’m Paula,

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, rootslovewater™ .

I’m just an everyday woman who wants to contribute something constructive to the world, while continuing to grow on my own journey.

This blog is an expression of that cause.

I’m grateful when I say that I’m a born thriver in life and you are too. We are all meant to thrive. But sometimes we experience stuff in the world that knocks us off balance and disheartens our sense of inner truth, security and well-being.

Trust me when I say, this is a GOOD thing!

Feeling this way doesn’t mean that we are broken and need to be fixed, like we have been made to believe. It means that an exciting opportunity is here and it’s up to you to grab it.

No one likes to be told how they should be living their lives or worse yet, forced into giving their power over to some ‘professional expert’.  Because in reality, professional experts only know what they’ve been taught and sometimes that doesn’t work for everyone.

Luckily, this blog and my work is nothing like that.

Rootslovewater™ is the flipside of all the hype and redtape we see today.  It’s more about being upfront and honest about the real issues affecting people’s well-being, growth and life satisfaction by sharing a diverse range of wholistic and heart based content that is soulful and real.

Working on re-membering and re-connecting to your natural self and who you really are is where growth and healing really starts.  Changing the things you can and peeling back layers of who you’re not is the groundwork that we must all undertake before we set out to help others and possibly change the world.

Rootslovewater provides spiritual nutrition for mind, body and soul.

temp_0-30The resources and tools provided are only templates for wholistic growth, healing and well-being.

 And, It’s up to you how you use them.

They aren’t meant to be the be all-end all. Life is a constant flow of fresh and new ideas so I encourage you to be open and receptive.

As a trained Indigenous therapist, my work is heart-based

What I share here, is not coming from a place of expertise, it comes from a place of eternal purpose and reciprocity.

It is in this sacred space where we can all learn and grow from each other.

People are the only real experts of their lives and deep down, most of us know this. We’ve all walked different paths and stumbled along the way only to pick ourselves up and move forward again at one stage or another.

And, I really and truly believe in people’s natural ability to grow through all this chaos and adversity.

In fact, I’d go so far as to say that these ‘stumbles’ are exactly what we need to move into our true potential.

It’s like what the logotherapist Viktor Frankl says,

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves”


What I’d like to say from my heart to yours is that, we all possess within us the natural ability to grow, blossom and thrive.

In Rootslovewater™ I open my heart, mind and soul to you all.

I’d like to share a part of me, heart to heart, spirit to spirit. I want to offer some of the co-creative learning tools that I’ve gathered along my personal journey, in the hope that they may be of service to you.

It is our birthright to express ourselves in our full ‘Whole-I-Ness’ and be who we were born to become.

Please enjoy and use what you can to benefit yourself, your family, your communities and our beautiful Mother Earth.

Thank you for your Presence

 My highest and heartfelt blessings
