I AM LOVE I AM KINDNESS I AM COMPASSION

Do you ever go through one of those phases where it feels as though everyone around you is clashing? As though everyone is in this never ending power struggle either with you or with everyone else around you? Well often what we see happening on the outside is a reflection of what's going on on the inside.

We have no control over how others show up, nor are we in any position to judge. We're each on our own journey with our own unique challenges and lessons to deal with. We also can't worry about it because when we do this, all we're doing is creating more chaos! If this is a reflection of what is within, then within us is where we need to shift our focus.

If what we want is more love, how can we be more loving towards ourselves and others. If what we want is more kindness how can we be kinder towards ourselves and others. If what we want is more compassion how can we be more compassionate towards ourselves and others.

In short...be the change you wish to see!

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

FINDING COURAGE: HOW TO TURN FEAR INTO POSSIBILITY

It happens to so many of us. In our minds we daydream of what could have been, or what could be...if only we had the guts to take a chance!
 
I know this feeling all too well because this was me for so many years. I had this vivid imagination of what my life could be and then the reality of what it was. But between the two was a massive gap the size of the Grand Canyon. Don’t get me wrong...I am not complaining. The choices that I made served a great purpose and I’ve had many blessing to be grateful for. However, there is so much more left to be experienced.
 
Often in life we make choices based on what is safe, tried, tested and true. We want to know all outcomes before we commit, and we want to minimize the risks whether these risks are emotional, physical, mental, or spiritual, etc. But as I have said before a thousand times, we never really know the outcomes for anything that happens in our lives. And living to avoid risk is not really living at all. It’s surviving. That is why…
 
We must stop making choices from a place of fear,
and start making them from a place possibility!
 
Let me paint the picture for you this way…
 
Imagine if you will a little bird. And as every little bird does at one point or another, it comes to the point in its life where it has a choice. It can either sit there in its little nest, safely tucked away high up on a tree. Or it can make the choice to jump, and as every little bird should....finally learn to fly!
 
Now take that picture and put yourself in place of the bird.
 
You can either stay where you are right now. Where everything feels safe and where everything feels secure. Knowing full well that although here you are somewhat protected, here you will also never spread your wings and fly. Or you can jump.
 
What do you do?
 
Just as the little bird sits on that branch, so do you now looking out into a vast world from above the tree tops. A world that stretches from the snow covered mountains on one side, all the way to the crashing waves of the ocean on the other. The only way to access this world is to jump off the branch that you are sitting on. Of course you could get a few cuts and scrapes trying. But now the only thing scarier than a few cuts and scrapes, is the thought of not trying at all. As you continue to stare out at this new world that is full of possibilities, the little branch starts to feel smaller and smaller by the second. Until finally you realize that you can’t stay on this branch anymore, even if you tried.

This is the power of shifting your perspective from one of fear, to one of possibilities. When you focus on possibilities, you are not worried about the few cuts and scrapes that you might get along the way. All you can see is the possibility of all of the wonder and beauty that you have to gain. When you make decisions from this place, you will always make the right decision. For no matter how scary it might be, it is in this decision that your ultimate life waits for you!
 
And remember, as Eleanor Rooselvelt once said: 
 "You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

WHEN I GIVE TO MYSELF I HAVE MORE TO GIVE

We are all guilty of this on some level. We give, and we give, and we give, and we leave very little to give to ourselves at the end of the day. Whether we are giving to our families, our bosses, our friends or our lovers, we often give so much that we become completely depleted. We can even become resentful, if we feel we are not getting the same in return.

Many of us have been brought up believing that we should always give more than we receive, and that doing things for ourselves is selfish. But nothing could be farther from the truth. When give to ourselves first and take our own happiness and fulfillment into our own hands, there is more of us to give to the ones we love or to the things that matter most to us. Not to mention, giving to yourself is all about self love.

Remember that the universe loves you, just as it created you. And by loving yourself you are loving the universe. And the universe kina digs that.

So make it a priority to give something to yourself everyday. Make sure that you are taken care of so that you are better able to take of everyone and everything else that matters. The ones you love will thank you, the universe will thank you, and most importantly, your heart will thank you!

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

NEVER ENOUGH

I don’t know when I ever started believing that I was not enough. As a matter of fact, I don’t remember ever NOT feeling that way. 

Ever since I was a child I can remember the inner dialogue of: 

What will they say? 
What will they think? 
What if they don’t like me? 

I’m not sure why...there is no one event in memory that stands out that would have caused it. I always just remember feeling so different than everyone else. Everyone else always seemed so much smarter, prettier, happier that I just always felt like I didn’t fit in. But I can’t remember why I felt this degree of separation and isolation. What I can remember was that it wasn’t long before my outer world started to reflect the beliefs of my inner world. And the more it did, the more I believed it. In my mind after all, it was just more proof that I was not enough. 

When I look back now, I can clearly see how these self limiting beliefs were sabotaging me at every stage of my life. 

Like everyone, I had dreams and I had ambitions. But every time I got close to achieving one of them, something would happen that would put an end to it before it even got off the ground. So I tried harder and I pushed harder, and yet still got the same results. I didn’t realize that it was me. I was the one who was keeping me in this endless vicious cycle of chasing as opposed to receiving. 

This lead to the birth of another self defeating belief. The belief that nothing in life comes easy, and that I had to work that much harder for the things that I wanted. And that inevitably, I would have to settle for much less than I really deserved. 

If only I knew then what I know now.

I HEAL WHEN I ALLOW MYSELF TO FEEL

The spiritual community always talks so much about staying positive. And absolutely this is a must! We always want to keep our vibrations as high as possible so that we can attract more of what we want and less of what we don’t. However, denial is never the place you want to be if you want to bring anything good into your life. I know this personally because I lived there for many years.

When we deny what we are feeling we never really heal it. It merely festers beneath the surface. And it will find other ways to make its presence known, usually at the worst possible moments and when you least expect it.

If you really want to heal from pain or sadness, then you must take the time to actually feel what you are feeling. It’s not unhealthy to do this. In fact, it’s unhealthy not to do this. Only when you honour your emotions by allowing them to come to the surface, can you truly begin to heal.

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

SELF LOVE: WHAT DOES IT MEAN AND HOW DO YOU GET IT

When I sat down to write this article, I really had no idea what it was that I was getting myself into. I mean of course I was super excited to have my work published in the Huffington Post and I had the full support of so many people around me. What I didn't expect was the response to my content. 

I shared the content with many of my peers and loved ones. And although they were all extremely supportive, they all asked the same question. And that was "so do you really believe that you have to love yourself first?" 

Being a woman who also once did not have the self-love and self-worth that I now know that I deserve, I can understand that response completely. And believe me when I say that this for me is still a work in progress. What I didn't realize, was how many of us still to this day, despite all of the expert opinions, still believe on some level that it is wrong or selfish to love yourself first. 

Listen, in writing this article, I'm not telling you all to go out and be narcissistic bitches who think and worry only about themselves. That's not what this is about at all. This is about showing up for yourself and for your life so that you can feel confident in your own self worth. And in doing so, being able to show up completely and fully for the ones you love.

And although many of you may think that this is selfish, nothing could be farther from the truth. For the truth is that you can't really be fully and unconditionally loving towards others, until you are fully and unconditionally loving towards yourself. This my friends is the basis for every unconditionally loving relationship. The kind we all want. 

So have a read and leave your comments below. And if I can leave you with one final thought it would be to please show yourself some love today. You deserve it.

I AM BLISSFULLY OPEN TO RECEIVE

So many of us are uncomfortable when it comes to receiving, and this could be in the form of anything from love, to wealth, to support, to attention and recognition.

It goes back to having learned at a young age that it is better and more noble to give than it is to receive. Or perhaps somewhere inside you believe that the more you give the more you’ll be loved, and vice versa. But you have to ask yourself, why is it okay for others to receive more than you? What is it that makes you less valuable or less worthy than everyone else? I got news for you honey...you’re just as important as everyone else and just as worthy! You just need to be believe it.

When we’re uncomfortable receiving anything in particular, we block ourselves completely from receiving anything. Stop the insanity now!! It’s time that you bust that belief and be fully open to receive all of the gifts that the universe has waiting for you. Remember that you are here to be abundant. The universe wants you to be abundant. So step out of your own way so that you can start receiving. I promise you, you won’t regret it.

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

THE WAKE-UP CALL

The universe will often send us wake-up calls. These are calls to wake us from our sleeping state. The sleeping state is a state of merely existing, where one is simply going through the motions of life but is not actually living. In this state we are not fulfilling our purpose for being here. In fact we are completely unaware that we even have a purpose. We are disconnected. We are sleepwalking. And these wake-up calls are the universe's way of jolting us back to reality so that we can accomplish what it is that we came into this life to accomplish. Many of us receive these calls more than once in our lives. However, whether or not we answer the call is completely up to us.

I received my first call years ago, when my life was seemingly perfect. That’s the thing about the sleeping state. Everything always looks perfect from the outside in. Why? Because we are going through the motions creating a life that by most standards is the ideal. But it’s only superficial at best; a facade. And my life was exactly that. 

I had everything I could have ever wanted. I had love, I had comfort and I had security. I also had long future filled with all of the above to look forward to. Or so I thought. That is until the call came like a thief in the knight. And in my case it was literally a call.

It was a Sunday morning and we were still asleep when the phone rang, and without getting into all the details, let’s just say that I suddenly realized that there was a third party in the fairy tale that I was living. And I can still remember the feeling of sickness that instantly came over me and that would stay with me for months to follow. It was as though my body was slowly being poisoned. But the poison was coming from own my mind. From my emotions.

The anger and the hate was unlike anything I had ever experienced before. More so I think towards myself than anyone. I mean, how could I not have seen this? How could I not have known. That’s when I realized I had known all along.

All the signs were there I just didn’t want to see them. I didn’t want to believe them. I wanted the fairy tale that existed in my mind so badly that I was willing to do anything and everything to make it my reality. I would even lie, steal and cheat to make it real. What I didn’t realize was that the only person I was lying and cheating, was myself.

That’s when the question “what the fuck is wrong with me?” first made it’s appearance among all the nasty voices that lived inside my mind. These are the voices that would tell me that I was not good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough, not lovable enough. And little did I know then that it would be a long time before that question would finally be put to rest. But that very question, was the first big clue as to why it is that I was here in this lifetime. This question, was indeed the first clue to my purpose.

I LOVE AND VALUE MYSELF UNCONDITIONALLY

The worst thing that we can do as human beings, is to allow our own self-worth to be determined by the opinions and expectations of others. When we do this, not only are we attracting all sorts of people who are unable to value us for who we are, but we are completely disempowering ourselves from finding our own self-worth. 

Self-worth is called such because it is not something that can ever be shown, proven or validated externally. It must come from within. That means loving, honoring and accepting yourself just as you are, with no exceptions or conditions. It even means loving your own imperfections as a beautiful part of what make you a unique human being.  

I promise you that when you take the initiative to love and value yourself from this place, the universe will do everything possible to reflect that love back to you. 

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

SWEET SURRENDER: HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY

We often put so much energy and focus into creating what it is that we want. Whether we pray, set goals and intentions, or repeat mantras in the mirror, it seems that we are always trying to get from A to B. And when we don’t get there, we assume that our prayers and intentions are not being answered. Nothing could be farther from the truth. More often than not, what’s actually happening is that you are so focused on where you want to be, that you're missing all the signs along the way that are meant to lead you there. Or worse, we are so worried whether or not it will actually happen, we inevitably end up pushing it away completely.

The universe always has your back. And if you can think it, that means that somewhere, somehow...it’s already yours. All you need to do is get out of your own way so that the universe can deliver it to you. So what does that mean?

Letting go of control

Let go of trying to control when and how it’s going to show up, what it will look like, and what you think is the best way to get there. The universe always knows way better than you what the best way to get there is. Simply trust that your prayers and intentions have been heard and then let go completely.

Staying in the present moment

Enjoy what is happening right now. Find pleasure in the little things. Simply rest in the knowing that what you want is already on it’s way to you and that you can simply sit back and relax.

Taking notice of the signs

The universe will send you signs and signals to lead you along on your path. Notice them and act on them. They are not an accident. They are here to lead you along your path to what the universe has in store for you, which is most often far greater than you could have ever imagined.

Following your intuition

You may get an overwhelming sense to do something. And it may have absolutely nothing to do with your end goal. Do it anyway. Chances are that you are going to discover something along the way that will lead you there.

PEACE BEGINS WITH ME

We all have difficult times in our lives. Sometimes this can be at a very personal level, or it can even be as a result of what’s happening around us in our communities or even on a global scale. Either way, chaos, change, confrontation and disruption is part of the world that we live in, not to mention an integral part of the human experience. And the worst thing that we can do for ourselves as human beings is to let that bring us down or make us angry in any way.

Anger is nothing more that a fuel. A powerful fuel that will only serve to create more of what we don’t want: chaos, confrontation and disruption.

We all have the power to choose peace, above everything else. Peace is not something that we can attain from outside of us. Peace is something that we create from within us. And when we choose to show up with peace within, we send out that powerful and loving vibration into the universe to be shared and enjoyed by everyone around us. Not to mention, it’s a vibration that is absolutely contagious. So as we make the choice to show up with peace in our hearts, more and more people will start to do the same.

So do your part to start a peace epidemic today. Make the choice to do what is well within your power to make the world a better place.

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

A SPIRITUAL RAGS TO RICHES STORY

For the longest time I have thought about how I can share the story of my own personal healing journey, in the hopes that it might help or inspire others who might be in a similar situation. The idea finally came to me after watching a powerful episode of Marie TV where she shared an intimate interview with Marianne Williamson. There they discussed how we as a society have made it inappropriate to feel anything deemed unpleasant. This includes a whole rainbow of natural human emotions such as sadness, grief, anger, hate, despair, etc. And we will do just about anything to escape these emotions including medications, addictions and other unhealthy distractions.

Therefore I’ve decided to create a separate blog series devoted entirely to sharing my own personal healing journey. The blog will be a collection of personal stories, experiences and lessons that lead me on my own journey of healing and spiritual transformation. Unedited and unfiltered, these posts will dive deep into the pain and trauma that I experienced, all the wrong ways that I tried to deal with it all, the mess that was created as a result, and how I finally found my way through the darkness and into the light. And how I did this is by finally getting real.

We need to start getting real about life and stop avoiding all the real and raw emotions that we deem to be unpleasant. We need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. And we have to remember that everything exists only in its duality:

Without sadness, we would never know true happiness.
Without pain, we would never know true pleasure.
And without hate, we would never know true love.

So in these posts I will openly and honestly share my own personal stories of pain and trauma, and all that I learned from them. If you would you would like to follow these posts please do. If not, don’t. I promise that no offense will be taken. But whether you read them or not, I ask you to remember one thing: that we are all only human, each of us on our own unique journey. And within that journey, we each bring our own strengths and weaknesses, trials and triumphs. Anytime we try to be anything more or less is not only a complete injustice to our own existence here in this lifetime, but a powerful message to the world around us that is not okay to just be human. That it's not okay to be ourselves.

IT IS SAFE FOR ME TO BE POWERFUL

Many of us are afraid to be powerful. Although many people associate being powerful with having power over other people, which in some instances might be true, in the spiritual sense of the word nothing could be farther from the truth. To be powerful from a spiritual perspective, means to speak our truth and to show up as our authentic selves without any apology or hesitation.

Maybe we are afraid to be powerful because we think we won’t be liked or accepted, or simply because we’ve been brought up to believe that it’s just not nice for girls to be powerful. But we have to remember that we are already exactly who we were sent here to be at this moment. And when we hold ourselves back or hide who we are to please others or for any other reason, we deprive the world of the very essence that we were sent here to be.

So it’s okay to be powerful. In fact, you must be powerful. For your sake and for everyone else's. For it’s only when you stand lovingly in your own power that the universe can benefit from everything that it sent you here to bring.

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

YOUR INTUITION: WHY YOU NEED TO BE USING IT

We make a thousand decisions everyday, big and small. What to eat, what to wear, where to go, what to do, etc. But how well are we making those decisions, really?
 
In life, we make decisions almost every second of every day. Some consciously, some unconsciously. But make no mistake, a decision is always being made. Even deciding not to do anything because we're indecisive, is in itself a decision.
 
So, if we are making decisions all day, every day, why is it so damn hard sometimes to make one single decision. Think about it! We get stressed, we think, we obsess, we research, and we debate in our minds over and over again, arguing for all sides at the same time. And when all that fails we solicit the advice of our family and friends. It’s almost insane that for living beings that make decisions at almost every moment, that this process isn’t easier.
 
But here’s the reason…
 
We focus too much on logic and reason to make all our decisions. 
 
That’s right! The very thing that we hold to the highest regard in most cultures today, is the very reason that we are making bad decisions. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that logic and reason don’t have a place in the decision making process. But they are only a very small piece of the pie.
 
Your intuition is your life GPS. 
 
Many believe, myself included, that the intuition that we ALL have, is the compass of the soul. The compass of our life. When we follow the guidance of our intuition, it will never steer us in the wrong direction.
 
Think about it, how many times have you ignored your intuition only to regret it later. How many times has your intuition told you “Oh no honey! Stay away from him!” and you reasoned your way out of it only to regret it later. I know you’ve been there. And don’t worry, you are so not alone!
 
Your intuition is a gift and you can use it at all times to guide you in the right direction. The problem is that many of us have become so accustomed to using logic and reason, that we’ve weakened our connection to our intuition. It’s okay though! The intuition like any muscle in the body can be worked out and pumped up to perform at peak levels at all times.
Here are some simple techniques and suggestions to help you harness the power of you intuition A.S.A.P!


Get Out Of Your Head And Into Your Heart

The quickest and most effective way to tap into the power of your intuition, is to get the heck out of your head. It’s way to crowded up in there with all if those opinions and limiting beliefs wildly running the show.
 
Practice thinking and feeling from your heart. That’s the quiet and peaceful place in your heart center that will whisper to you only when it’s quiet in your mind. Meditation is a great way to quiet the mind. So the next time you know you’ve been overthinking a decision, try meditating to help clear your thoughts away, so that you can bring the focus back to your heart. If you want some tips on how to meditate, check out How To Meditate: What I Learned During My Temple Stay In Thailand. I promise you, the steps outlined here are so easy, anyone can do them!

Ask The Questions You Need The Answers To

As with any GPS, you have to first tell it where you want to go, before it can give you the best route to get there. So when you do need to make a decision, try and get into a calm centered place within your mind and then simply ask your question to yourself. Then take note of the first thing that comes to mind. Even if it’s not what you want to hear, it’s important that you trust it.

Practice With The Small Stuff

For gosh sake, please don’t use this technique tomorrow to decide something major, like if and where you should move!! The intuition needs to be strengthened first and slowly. For now, practice making intuitive decisions with the small stuff. These are the things that have little to no consequence attached to them such as what to eat, what to wear, where to go. As you get more comfortable with using your intuition you can slowly work your way up the consequence ladder. 


Affirm Your Decision By Saying “What’s The Worst That Could Happen”

As you make your decisions more and more using your intuition, self doubt is bound to pop up. Especially as you start to move up the consequence ladder. In fact, as this happens, you will need to learn the gentle balance between intuition, and logic. Now it’s important to remember that the two are often on opposite sides so be mindful of this. And when you do find yourself in a situation where your intuition is telling you to do something that’s scary or seems risky, simply ask yourself “what’s the absolute worst that can happen”. Chances are it’s really not that bad in which case go for it. If it really is too much of a risk and your not comfortable with going in that direction, than don’t, and trust that you made the best decision that you could at the time.

I EMBRACE CHANGE WITH OPEN ARMS AND AN OPEN HEART

Change can be frightening thing. It can leave you feeling extremely vulnerable and uncertain as it pushes way you beyond your comfort zone, putting you into a tailspin panic of 1000 worst case scenarios.

But beyond your comfort zone is where life happens, it's where the healing happens and most importantly,  it's where magic happens. So although it may be frightening and overwhelming, it's important to go with the flow and trust that it is taking you someplace truly spectacular!

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

BETTER NOT BITTER: HOW TO COME BACK FROM ROCK BOTTOM

Last week I watched a powerful interview with Marie Forleo and Marianne Williamson and it really got me thinking about my own healing journey. The interview itself was called How To Transform Depression, Sadness & Grief Through Spiritual Healing, and it really put into perspective the unhealthy relationship that we have as a society with these emotions that are not only a natural part of of the human experience, but also catalysts for great transformation.
 
Marianne Williamson discussed the dark knights of the soul. These are the darkest moments in our lives and by far our most earth shattering. But what we always fail to realize in those moments, is the powerful ways in which they are great catalysts for change and transformation. But this change and transformation can only come when we deal with these moments in spiritually healthy ways.
 
We’ve all heard it all heard things like ‘you have to think positive’ or ‘look on the bright side’. But what we’re really saying when we say things like that is, ‘try to deny what you’re feeling and pretend everything is fine.’ In other words, live in denial.
 
As a society we have made it inappropriate to feel anything deemed unpleasant. This includes a whole rainbow of natural emotions such as sadness, grief, anger, despair, etc. And we will do just about anything to escape these emotions including medications, addictions and other unhealthy distractions.
 
We have to remember that as human beings, we have within our nature the gift of being able to feel a wide range of extraordinary emotions. All of which are healthy, even the more challenging ones. They are also an important part of our human experience, not to mention the key to our spiritual evolution. But we need to start dealing with them in more healthy ways that honors their presence in our lives.
 
The wound is the place where the light enters you!

~Rumi
 
This is because our wounds are our path to spiritual evolution and enlightenment. But we must first be able to allow the light to enter through our wounds, and that can’t happen if we are in the pattern of pretending that the wounds don’t not exist. Instead, here is a healthy spiritual approach to healing that will not only help you to move through the most trying times in your life, but will also catapult your spiritual evolution in ways that you never thought possible.  

Allow Yourself To Be Genuine About What It Is That You’re Feeling

Denial won’t help you and neither will trying to run and hide from what it is that you’re feeling. As I learned many times, you’re feeling will still be there when you get back no matter how far you go.
 
Allow yourself some time to deal with and process what it is that you’re feeling. Otherwise the healing process will never begin. This means crying when you need to cry, screaming when you need to scream, and giving yourself the space and the permission to just be sad for a while. How long will be depend on the situation. And obviously you will have to nudge yourself out of that at some point. After all, you don’t want to set up camp here. But you do want to allow for enough time to feel, honor and explore all of your emotions, even the darker ones.

Examine What It Was That The Situation Was Trying To Teach You

Once you’ve sat in your feelings for a while, it’s time to continue on your healing journey. Start to reflect on what it was that the painful experience was trying to teach you and how it was calling you to evolve. Perhaps it was trying to teach you to love yourself or others more, or perhaps it was trying to move your life into a whole new direction that otherwise might not have been possible. Either way, this step is the key to unlocking what will be the next phase in your spiritual evolution.

Forgive Yourself And Others For Any Mistakes

It’s important at this stage in the healing process to find forgiveness. Resentment will only keep you from healing and moving forward. In fact, you’ll more than likely only end up recreating the situation or experience until you do find forgiveness. And it’s important that you forgive all those involved including yourself, so that you can set yourself free to move forward.
 
And if you can’t forgive just yet, at least hold the space for forgiveness to take place. And then recognize that it is because of this person or situation that you are moving on to the next stage in your spiritual evolution. So at the very least be grateful for that. The forgiveness will come to you when the time is right.

Apply What You’ve learned

Take the gift of this great lesson and begin to apply it to your life in any way possible. Then watch as a whole new life unfolds for you. As you move forward applying what you’ve learned, you'll start to feel so much lighter and brighter. You will also set yourself free from the pain of the experience, keeping with you only the beautiful lesson it delivered.

Special Announcement
In order to honour the breathtaking path of spiritual healing and to help guide and inspire others to deal with their emotions in more healthy and spiritually transformative ways, I will be creating a new blog series that will give insights into my own spiritual healing journey. The blog will be a collection of personal stories, experiences and lessons that lead me on my own journey of healing and spiritual transformation. Unedited and unfiltered, these posts will dive deep into the pain and trauma that I experienced, all the wrong ways that I tried to deal with it all and the mess that was created as a result, and how I finally found my way through the darkness and into the light.

Stay tuned for more details coming soon!

I AM ALWAYS CREATING FROM A PLACE OF LOVE AND LIGHT

We are all constantly creating. The question is, do we like what we are creating?

Whether we like it or not, every time speak, think or feel something we are creating our own reality. This is the law of creation and it’s as real and true as the law of gravity. Don’t believe me? How many times have you had a bad start to the morning and then the whole day seemed to naturally follow the same pattern. That’s because like it or not honey, you created it.

We are all powerful creators, and we have the unimaginable power within us to create anything that we want, and don’t want.

So how do we harness that power to create what we actually want? By creating from a place of intention and by always doing our best to stay in the highest of vibes. That means speaking, thinking and feeling in the highest vibration of love and light possible. From this place, we have the power to create a life that we never dreamed possible.

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

SPIRITUAL AWAKENINGS: 9 SIGNS YOU'RE ON THE VERGE OF ONE

Do you sometimes feel as though your life is on the fast track to hell in a hand in a hand-basket? Does it feel like absolutely everything is going wrong and you can’t make heads or tails from anything that is happening in your life?
 
You may think that your life just simply sucks! But the reality is that you could be standing in the threshold of a spiritual awakening!
 

What is a Spiritual Awakening?

A spiritual awakening can be described in many ways. But to put it simply, it is a deep transformation at a soul level, where you move further away from an egoic expression of the self, on move closer towards a state of spiritual oneness and unconditional love.
 
Now this never happens overnight. It happens slowly, as you evolve layer by layer, often resulting in multiple spiritual awakenings in one lifetime, each time bringing you closer and closer to unconditional love and oneness. And it can happen to all of us, as we are spiritual beings having a human experience that has been divinely designed to help our soul to learn, heal and grow.
 
Sounds lovely doesn’t it? Well I can assure you that it doesn’t feel so lovely when you’re in it! But knowing that this what’s happening and being aware of what’s waiting for you on the flip side of this tsunami of change, is sometimes all that you need to get you through it.
 

Here are 9 signs that you are on the verge of a spiritual awakening:

  1. You get the urge to make a major change but don’t have a clue where it is
  2. Your relationships start to fall away in extremely unexpected ways
  3. You find yourself spending more and more time alone despite the fact that you are feeling lonely
  4. You start to avoid or feel uncomfortable around confrontation and negativity
  5. The activities that once interest you no longer do
  6. You are becoming increasingly sensitive to your environment
  7. Your sleep patterns are completely on the fritz
  8. You have a sudden urge to make a difference in your community
  9. You suddenly feel a strong connection to children, animals and/or nature

 
You might be thinking that sounds pretty crappy but here me out. If you are experiencing all or most of the above, your soul is speaking to you. So listen up!
 
Your soul is trying to tell you that it’s time to slowly let go of all of the superficial and egocentric habits, relationships and activities that are no longer serving you on your journey. They more you try to hang onto these things that you’re being called to let go of, the more painful the process will be for you. It’s time for you to open up to the unconditional love and oneness that the universe has promised to each of us.

By letting go of all that is not serving you, you allow for and make room in your life for everything that does. So just allow it to happen and have faith that something wonderful is waiting for you on the the other end. Welcome all of the new support and teachers that come to you along the way, and the new habits and activities they bring to you. For they are meant to bring you closer to a life filled with unconditional love and abundance.

I AM CHOOSING TO FEEL HAPPY NOW

Today we are talking about co-dependency. We all have good days and bad days. And that’s okay! Such is life. When it becomes not okay is when we let the attitudes and behaviors of others dictate our own happiness.

It’s easy to feel good when others around us are feeling good. But what about when that doesn’t happen. What if the people around us are not having a good day, and are not showing up for us in a way that feels good. Do we let that ruin our day or how we feel about ourselves? Well we could, but is that really serving us?

When we become codependent on others, or anything else outside ourselves for that matter to make us happy, it becomes an addiction like any other. We feel great when we have that fix, and then quickly plummet when we don’t. This is powerful enough to send us into a desperate spiral of trying to find the next fix. As this desperation is fear based, we only end up pushing away that which we want most, happiness. Besides, there is no greater burden that we can place on the ones that we love than to ask them to make us happy.

So how do we stop it? By showing up for ourselves and recognizing that we can always tap into our own happiness. By making our happiness something that comes from within, as opposed to trying to live without.

When we choose to let our happiness be determined by our environment, we wind up living in darkness with only a few fleeting moments of happiness. When we choose to harness the power to cultivate happiness from within, we live in happiness with only fleeting moments of darkness. Never forget that you always have the power to choose. Which will you choose?

This mantra is designed to help you do just that.

THE GIRL BEHIND THE BLOG

THE GIRL

Like I always say...we are constantly creating. The question is, do we actually LOVE what we’re creating?

I spent the majority of my life creating everything I DIDN’T WANT. But it took me just as long to finally realize that I myself was creating it. I constantly thought I was a victim of circumstance. It was as though everyone and everything around me was was to blame for my own unhappiness, and that I was powerless to do anything about it. 

So I did what any other self-defeating victim would do. I worked harder and tried harder to please everyone and everything around me. Because somewhere in the crazy madness of my mind, it made sense to me that if everyone else was happy with me, then I would be happy with me too. But the harder I tried, the worse things became. I tried so hard to please those around me that I completely forgot who I was. And the funny thing was that the harder I tried, the more people were actually displeased. Most of all...ME. Until suddenly...I simply could not take it anymore and I finally broke wide open! 

I finally clued in to what was going on behind the scenes. The unhappiness that I was experiencing was a direct result of my own self limiting belief. The belief that I was not enough! 

I wasn’t good enough
I wasn’t smart enough
I wasn’t loveable enough
I wasn’t pretty enough 

I simply was...NOT ENOUGH! 

And so began my journey of healing and transformation. Both internally and externally. And that has been the single most greatest journey of my life. That’s where I discovered who I was again and how so much more than enough I really was. And that I myself DID have the power to create what my heart and soul wanted most. 

That’s why I have devoted my life and work to helping others do the same. To finally believe that they are enough and that they too have the power to create a life that they love. 

We all have a purpose. A powerful reason for why we are here. And, who we are sent here as is exactly who we need to be in order to fulfill that purpose. This is why the soul is never pleased when we are anything but. 

The more we awaken to who we are, the more able we are to fulfill that purpose. That is where we ourselves find the fulfillment we seek. That is where we find the power to create a life that we love. 

THE BLOG

My intention for this blog is to share all that I have learned on my journey, as well as some of my own personal stories and experiences, in the hopes that it will inspire others to awaken to who they really are, so that they too can tap into the power to create a life that they love. One that is complete alignment with their true essence and their highest intention.
