MAKE SPACE!

Often, we hope and wish for our lives to change without doing what’s required to create and allow change. We seldom realize that we are preventing the change we need and want from actually happening; there is work to be done. We push aside disappointment, anger and deeply buried pain to survive, without healing from whatever almost broke us. We use trauma as a means of protecting ourselves from being hurt again; at least not in the same way. Moving on without healing creates a recurring cycle of reliving the pain through many different forms (ex. attracting emotional unavailable partners, unfulfilling jobs, beginning self-sabotaging habits etc.). A few years ago, I experienced an intense cycle of pain that caused a deep ache in my chest and stopped me in my tracks for a while. Shortly after this experience, a friend looked into my eyes and asked, “Have you ever forgiven those who have hurt you?” I answered truthfully, “No!” I always imagined forgiveness meant excusing the offender’s behavior and I was not willing to do …

Not Your Fears!

Good Day Beautiful Souls 💜 The message in this photograph hits me especially hard at this time. It’s difficult to stay motivated and inspired when you’re surrounded by the heaviness of other people’s fear. You know the ones constantly stating “I can’t do this. You can’t do that. That’s impossible… You should just stay where you are because at least…Stick with the lesser of the two evils…” We all know people like this; some of them you can’t just cut out of your life so you just deal with them best as you can. In our minds, we will not let them bring us down but at some point, their fear and negativity begins to weigh us down. Once this happens, it seems as though you have to work so hard to release their burdens so you can move forward along your journey. Stay in tune with your Heart, your Soul so you can recognize when it’s happening and clear out the crap ASAP. Nothing should stop you from achieving your dream, your goals and …

Beginning Your New Day

Good Day Beautiful Souls, 💜 Begin your New Day awakening 10 – 15 minutes earlier than when you actually need to. Take this time to connect with your Heart and Soul.  With your eyes closed, inhale deeply, hold for 5 seconds then exhale completely. Repeat this at least 3 times.

It’s Your Life…Get to It!

Good Day Beautiful Souls 💜 EmbraceYourFlow, live with passion and do the work you are passionate about. Be and do what feels natural, what makes you smile, what makes your heart rate increase, what feels effortless to be and do, what you always want to be and do more of because it feels right and peaceful. If no one were looking, who would you be? Life is not meant to be dull or safe or tedious or unfulfilling because you have responsibilities. Life is meant to be truly lived, enjoyed, experienced; welcoming new thoughts, ideas and actions. Life is following your Heart and Soul, trusting your intuition to guide you as it will NEVER fail you (your decision to ignore it, is why you may fail). Life is pushing past your fears, courageously stepping out to fulfill your purpose. So despite what you’ve been taught or told, decide who you want to be and what you want to do, then take action. Your life is in your hands, you are the creator of your life…get …
