Let the Universe love you

Can you remember all the times you’ve sabotaged yourself? I know that even now, after all these years I am almost constantly sabotaging myself in one form or another. Sometimes in HUGE ways, most of the time in the teeny tiny ways that are easier to excuse (and pretend aren’t actually sabotage) Procrastinating when I know the rewards of getting the job done. Not doing what I know will bring me what I want quicker and with more ease and joy. Eating something that I know my body doesn’t like. Ignoring simple self-care rituals in place of being “busy”. Wasting time on a seemingly important piece of work, ignoring my Soul’s work. Watching too much t.v. rather than connecting with my man. The thing is, that no matter how much I try to sabotage myself, no matter how much I try to fail in my life, my aspirations, my dreams (and trust me, when I was younger I was the absolute Queen, King, Ruler-of-the-world at this game) the Universe/Creator/Gods simply will not let it happen. There seems to be a limit on just how far I’m allowed to go before it steps in and embraces me in it’s arms and takes over. A limit in how far it will let me fall. That’s how much the Universe loves me. That’s how much the Universe loves you. That’s how much the Universe loves us all. So imagine what it would be like if we actually decided to co-create WITH the Universe....

Dream. Decide. Do.

Dream. Decide. Do. Dream it. Feel it. Smell it.  See it. Taste it. Hear it. Use every sense you have to dream it in your very being. Let every cell in your body experience it and know it to be true. Decide it. Claim it. Own it. Call it in. Declare it to the world. Declare it to yourself. Know it’s done already. Do it. Do the work. Don’t give up. Do what you know needs to be done. Do everything you can. And then surrender. Surrender it to the Universe. Surrender it to the Creator. Surrender it to the gods. And KNOW that it’s already done. #theworldneedsyou

Forgiveness

I love this so much! “We forgive, then, out of self-interest. I forgive you because I want out of my pain. I forgive you so that I can be free of what you did. I see beyond your mistake to the love in you so that I can see beyond the mistake to the love in me—because only then can I have a miracle. The universe will immediately reprogram itself to send us miracles, when we remove the barriers to our willingness to love. Forgiveness is the most powerful key to new beginnings.” ~ Marianne Williamson The Law of Divine Compensation #theworldneedsyou

Tip of the Day

Be kind. It doesn’t cost you anything and it makes a big difference. This one is for all of life, not just business AND it must begin with YOU! So many times we talk about hindsight, how about looking at KINDsight? Remembering that we were always doing the best that we could at the time we did what we did with the information we had back then. Once you can be kind to yourself, it’s so much easier to be kind to others. Once you can see that you were doing the best you can then you can see others are too. My man always says, “If you could have done better you would have.” (Well not always but you get the idea. And yes, he’s a keeper 💕) And he’s right. It took me a long time to agree, and now I have I treat myself so much nicer, kinder, with more love and generosity. The way I would treat my best friend in fact. Kindness can be something small like smiling at a stranger, or something bigger that requires more of an investment of time on your part. Either way, it’s the energy behind it that makes all the difference. So that’s my tip. Be kind, to you, to everyone. We are all doing the best we can in each and every moment with the information and knowledge we have. #theworldneedsyou

Clearing

Clearing your energetic (and actual) space I am a naturally clean person, I like to clean and disinfect my bathroom, toilet, shower EVERY day. Ideally I like to vacuum and mop daily too – these days it’s probably only 2-3 times a week though. I just like things clean. Tidying though is not my thing. I’m happy to have piles of things lying around, more often than not when I go to bed I just drop my clothes on the floor not picking them up until the morning. My desk is only ever clear and uncluttered for the five minutes after I’ve wiped (yes and disinfected) it. You could most definitely see where I’ve been at home by following the trail of projects. My wardrobe while colour-coded can be a mist mash of folded and thrown (in the right colour piles). And yet, I LOVE the feel of an uncluttered home. I love the feeling of being on holiday when everything is neat, tidy and clear because I pretty much only ever bring the basics. I went to the UK this year with only hand luggage and didn’t buy a single thing because I didn’t need anything. I love coming home and seeing a clear, spacious organised home. And yet, I don’t always make the effort to keep it that way. Energetically I can be the same way. I KNOW when a conversation has to be had to clear the thick stew of resentment/anger/guilt (insert any other word that’s appropriate)...

Big Dreams, Small Steps

I hired a coach/mentor/visionary agent of change after my grandmother died. I was struggling with dealing with her passing away and who am I kidding, I thought that if I could hire someone she would give me something else to focus on and I could put aside dealing with the pain a little longer. And it worked. For awhile at least. I managed to distract myself AND learn and discover some really amazing “stuff”. And yes, I did have to deal with the pain, of course. I’m still dealing with it every day. And that’s ok. One of the exercises she took me through that proved to be so valuable in every area of my life was to see your dream as big as you can envision it. This is my take on it – she teaches it a little different but you’ll get the general idea. Take a deep breath and let your Soul’s vision come to you on this day. THIS is the day you’ve been waiting for. THIS is the day you’ve been working towards. THIS is the day that all your dreams are coming true. Where are you? What are you wearing? What are you doing? Who’s there with you? What are they doing? Why are you all together? What are you eating/drinking? How do you feel? What can you hear? What can you smell? Taste? Touch? Engage every single one of your senses and really get that you are there. You are actually there. This...

When are you going to shine?

One of my favourite quotes is by the fabulous Marianne Williamson: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Where are you willing to shine today? Once we open ourselves up to shining in one area of our lives it usually spills over into all other areas, it’s time to shine. #theworldneedsyou

It all matters

It all matters You’ve got so much to share with the world. You know you do. You KNOW your message, your purpose, your mission is bigger than you’ve been playing it, bigger than you. You know they’re out there and they need to hear what you have to say. You know you’re the ONE that can make a difference in that person’s life. You know you need to step up, show up and start shining your light. What you might not know… What no-one tells you is that it’s not just the choices you make in what you eat that affects every area of your life, it’s EVERYTHING we put into our system, into our environment, everything in our space. What you eat is vitally important for vibrant health, and we know that our health will have an effect on every area of our lives. We’ve all experienced the struggle in our work when we’ve had a headache, in our relationships when we’ve had a cold (hard to feel sexy when your sniffling and coughing). What you may be less aware of though is how who you surround yourself with, what you read in the paper, on your newsfeed, what you watch in tv affects you too. Just like if we fill our bodies with junk food, processed food, food-like substances our bodies will feel sluggish and tired, when we fill our mind with negativity, drama and rubbish our minds become foggy, cluttered and unable to function at their best....

What do you really want?

What do you really want? More than anything else. More than you ever thought possible. Every wish you wish. Every want you want. Every desire, every yearning, every To lose weight, to be fit, strong and lean. To have a successful business, to make lots of money, have financial freedom. To buy THAT course, hire that coach, that mentor, the one that will uplevel your business and your life. To find your Soul Mate, your twin flame, the one that will love you unconditionally, cherish and adore you. Every single one comes back to how you think you will feel once you have it. You THINK you’ll feel more confident, sexier, attractive once you lose the weight. Once you’re fit, lean and strong. You THINK you’ll be good enough, deserving, worthy once your business is earning a million dollars. You HOPE that this course, this coach, this mentor will validate you and your ideas, will give you the answers so you can finally feel accomplished, successful and enough. You THINK you’ll belong, feel nurtured, safe and loved once you find your one true love and you hope with every cell in your being that you’ll finally get your “happily ever after.” What you really want is to FEEL a certain way. You want to FEEL confident, sexy, attractive. You want to FEEL deserving, worthy, good enough. You want to FEEL loved, cherished, like you belong. Now I’m not saying that you shouldn’t go after everything you want. I KNOW you...
