Are you feeling blocked, frustrated, or unfulfilled in any area of your life?
In your relationship with your spouse, frustrated with parenting, exhausted from the mindless busyness of life, depressed, overwhelmed, anxious . . . ?? Are you tired of fighting? Are your trends wearing thin? Are you ready to surrender?
Are you ready to SOAR? Are you ready to go after what you want?
Everyone gets frustrated, angry, sad, jealous, worried, anxious, scared . . . it's normal.
But when we can't identify our feelings or when we get hijacked by our emotions, we can't think straight. Operating out of fear, we want to fight the world and tend to get defensive. Fear gets in our way and prevents our calm, focused thinking and behaving. When we're fearful, we don't always know it because the ego confuses us and convinces us that we're isolated, and we feel attacked, lonely and separate. So, we act or re-act accordingly by blaming, ourselves and others, or by self-medicating with avoidance behaviors like drinking, shopping, eating, fighting, exercising, working . . . Blaming and band-aiding prevents us from standing in our power, from having full body presence, from feeling balanced, focused, and flexible.
Fear prevents us from getting to the ROOT CAUSE of our pain and suffering. . . mainly our mistaken beliefs. It takes LOVE to face our pain. SELF LOVE heals everything!
Examining our thoughts and beliefs is not easy to do. But taking time out for honest introspection is what we need if we want to unveil our conditioned ways of thinking and behaving that have been corrupting our well-being and keeping us off balance.
Noticing or simply becoming aware of our thoughts can help us to change them.
The first step towards soaring is "seeing" what you've been telling yourself. It's time to fall in love all over again -- and yes, with YOUR SELF. This is not SELFish. This is putting the oxygen mask on yourself first so you can save your child, your husband, your friend, or whomever is sitting right there beside you.
Save yourself first so you can help save others. Love yourself so you can love others.
You possess the power to love yourself. So forgive yourself. Be kind to yourself. Accept where you are right now so you can be able to heal. If you love yourself, you can love & forgive others . . . & SOAR.
You are NOT ALONE! There's power in stillness. And with just 10 minutes of time in the morning and once again at night -- you can find rest with your breath
Focusing on your breath will allow your busy mind to have necessary space to notice how it works. With practice you can step back and "watch" your mind. You can watch your thoughts like leaves on the water or clouds drifting by in the sky. Just notice your thought, acknowledge it, and let it go and gently come back to your breath.
It's really simple. But you have to want it. You have to want to love yourself. You have to want to have peace and joy. You have to want to feel worthy of love. And that means you have to accept everything that has come your way up to this point as necessary and purposeful. It has taken you here! You are reading this for a reason. So let's go. Strap your will up and let's take a ride!
You are amazing. You are powerful. You are capable. All you need to do is TRUST. Trust yourself. Believe in yourself. And Most importantly, trust in the divine order of the Universe. The Universe is always working for you but first you must lead the way. That means you must get your will aligned with the will of your greater Self. The little self or the ego gets all distracted by the things of the world, the little worries, the small stuff. The greater Self is always waiting for the little self to get it's shit together. Once you're ready to do what's in your best interest and in the best interest of all -- that is -- basic stuff -- act right; don't lie; don't steal; pick up your trash; show compassion. Basically, give what you want. You want people to treat you right, treat them right. You want people to smile, give them a smile. Give what you want!! It's easy. Try it.
And before you know it . . . your greater Self, Spirit, will join you and bring that magic you've been waiting for right into your life. I promise.
You hold the key for letting Spirit in. The Universe steps aside until you ask for it's help.
So are you ready? You are so powerful! But, ironically, in order to regain your power, you must Surrender-- trust, let go . . . let go of your fear and trust that there's something amazing waiting for you. You must let go and let it BE.
Trusting in the divine order of the Universe and asking for what you want is the first step to get off that merry-go-round and try something new. Stepping out from the familiar ways of doing isn't easy but you can jump off when you truly believe that what you want is right there -- right there within you -- just waiting . . .
The power lies with you. Buckle up and get ready for a new ride. What are you waiting for?
The Universe is waiting to change your life. Bring all your brokenness and mercy is waiting on the other side, if you're honest.
