Peace of mind. You want it? Good news is, you can have it!
I want peace of mind and freedom from my compulsive thinking (for me it manifests as negative body image) so that I can be fully present and experience intimacy and love. Simple, right? In my heart, I know that its possible. I know I it takes some training and time, but if i am fully intent on having it, I will.
I know I will wake up one day and just not care about how much I weigh. I will be able to walk past a mirror and not obsessively look at my reflection just so that I can suck in just a little bit more or tuck in that flyaway hair. (more…) read more →
“Flirtation is an art. Flirtation lightens the spirit. It is the quickest way out of a jam- you can melt arguments, evaporate traffic tickets, win a spot at a crowded restaurant. Flirtation eases communication. It makes whatever you wish come to you more smoothly.”- Mama Gena
Flirt with your work. Flirt with your playtime. Flirt with your workouts. Flirt with your body. Flirt with your green juice. Flirt with your piece of chocolate cake. Flirt with your studies. Flirt with your friends. Flirt with your lover. Flirt with your health. Flirt with your disease. Flirt with your power. Flirt with your weaknesses. Flirt with truth. Flirt with possibility.
When you flirt with the world, the world flirts with you.
The cure to perfectionism lies in our ability to surrender to God. Plain and simple.
When we are perfecting every last detail of our projects, our friendships, our outfits, our bodies, to the point where it is detrimental to our well-being, we are forgetting that we are human and that ultimately, we can’t control every last detail. We want everything to be perfect because we think if it’s not and something goes awry, it is all our doing. But we need to remember that we are not God. God’s the one that takes of it.
As a body confidence coach, I see perfectionism play out in the landscape of our bodies. We want the ”perfect” body and we aren’t happy until we get it. But, the sad part is, if we do end up getting that “perfect” body, we are still not happy. Why? Because we don’t know how perfect we already are at our core. We are perfect spiritual beings living as human beings. Humans make mistakes. We do. It doesn’t mean that we ARE mistakes. Therefore, if you have a bit of cellulite on your thighs, it doesn’t mean you ARE cellulite. You have the perfect body that has some cellulite. And that makes you perfect. (more…) read more →
What if we had it all wrong?
What if anxiety isn’t the enemy?
What if anxiety is an expression of Love?
Anxiety. It moves in at the speed of light. And suddenly, your chest tightens, your breath shortens, and your mind begins to race. This feeling is the opposite of warm and fuzzy. You don’t want it there. You try to push it out. You try to stuff it down. You try to yell at it to move and go on it’s merry way. You try to meditate it away. You ask your crystals to take it away. Really, anything to stop this feeling.
Both you and I know that anxiety isn’t fun. It’s not something we talk about every day, although it’s something most of us experience quite often.
But listen, I want to pose a question to you: What if anxiety has your back? What if anxiety is beckoning you to hear it’s divine messages? What if anxiety is solely waiting for you to listen?
3 Steps to Hearing Anxiety’s Hidden Message:
1. Sit and breathe. Close your eyes, take a deep breath up from your pelvis, feel it move up to the crown of your head. Exhale from the top of your crown down to your pelvis.
2. Free write. In the midst of it feeling anxious, sit down and ask anxiety “What are you trying to tell me?” and just write. It is helpful to write out “Anxiety is trying to tell me” and finish the sentence.
3. Listen. Look at what anxiety is trying to tell you. You may be surprised at how loving and gentle it is once you open the dialogue. read more →
Invest in yourself and watch the world invest in you.
Do you want more clients in your business? Do you want men stopping in your tracks as they pass you on the street? Do you want to stop feeling so fat all the time? The one thing you need to do is be willing to invest time and/or money on yourself. Investing in yourself is not selfish, silly, or frivolous. Investing in yourself, no matter how big or small, is one of the most loving acts you can do. It sends the signal to yourself, to the Universe, and those around you that you care about yourself. And guess what? When you show that you care about yourself, the Universe will step right in and send others who want to give to you in the same way.
I recently made a huge leap of faith by investing in a fabulous business coach and I was scared shitless of how much money I was putting down. I had never spent that much money on anything for myself before and it felt uneasy. During this bout of fear, my faith kept me standing upright. I tuned in and kept hearing, over and over, that hiring this coach was the right decision for me. My intuition told me that I would receive everything and more if I took this leap of faith.
And voila, three days after I invested in myself, I received a project that paid the exact same amount of money that I had put down for my coach. Yep, that’s right.
Is there something that you have been dying to do for yourself? Have you been eyeing that awesome health coach? Are you having dreams about that gorgeous sequin dress from Anthropologie?
Go for it and you will receive everything that you truly desire.
You might be freaking out when it comes time to spending money and time on yourself so here is my Invest in Yourself Checklist:
1. Check in with your inner guidance. Ask your guidance if this investment is right for you. Ask for anything else you should know before investing.
2. Take aligned action. If your guidance told you to buy that dress for the date, go for it.
3. Keep the faith. Remind yourself that the investment you made in yourself will come back to you tenfold, even if you can’t see it right away.
