What if it could be easy?


Since the dawn of time there has been a natural way in which the living things on this planet not only thrive, but also glow. Flower grows strong rooted by the Earth, crystal cave glows by aid of the sun, waterfall flows with the pumping of the river and cub becomes mighty bear with the fruits of the forest. The former statements, all seemingly unrelated actually have a fundamental thing in common; they are only vitalized by the aid of something other than itself.

 

We humans although, more complex than the flower, cave, and so on, are not exempt from the world of nourishment. This knowledge is not a nuance, but of late it seems our race has somehow strayed away from it. And in turn, we have lost the one shining beacon that was bestowed upon since inception; innate well-being.  This post is about accessing that well being through the aid of nourishment. As well as a gentle reminder of the wholeness we all come into this world with.

 

All humans are fundamentally born with the sense of what is right for us and what does not serve us. Consider the infant, they know what they want; if they are tired they sleep, if they are hungry they cry till being fed. They outstretch their arms when wanting to be held. You get the idea.

As adults, we recognize the infants’ ability to authentically express that which they need. So what has happened to ours? It is our thinking; self-analysis, self-loathing and critical self-evaluation that has removed us from expressing ourselves and consequently we have merged further and further away from our highest selves.

But what if life and the way we go about it was much easier than we think? I am here to boldly say that, it is. We have the power to bring ourselves up, but only when we are our highest most vitalized selves, when we have been cared for as the complex and vibrant beings we are. Consider this thought; “The amount of energy I have in my body gives me the type of thinking I have access too. I am always experiencing my thinking, not the event.”  

Events happen, and you constantly have a choice in regards to your reaction. Our thinking is insidious and if gone unchecked can seriously alter our mood. That’s why the words, cranky, annoyed, irritable all exist; our bodies cannot generate the higher innate well-being thoughts because it is running on empty. It’s truly never the circumstances; it’s our thoughts around us. Thought creates our reality; it is always our perspectives in which we are experiencing the world.

I have learned that when life happens and I am unfortunately exhausted and malnourished, to not take my thoughts too seriously, only notice them.  Like a spectator, I take a step back and simply watch and notice but don’t quite believe them. This trick has helped me immensely in staying above ground, if you will, not sinking into self-disparaging thoughts.  Once again, thoughts create our reality—doesn’t that feel freeing, to realize your thoughts have so much power? I invite you to sit with that thought and let yourself slowly be enveloped by it. Allow the understanding wash over you until you come to the realization that life can be so fun, if we began to see that, we wouldn’t take each other so seriously, we would discover a deep sense of well-being.

When you feel your mood is low—you simply take a breath, notice that you are in a low mood with unhelpful thinking. Like clouds in the sky, this will pass. Don’t make any big decisions, don’t have any important conversations. You’ll save those for when you are at your highest most resilient self, after nourishing.

I hope this post has shined a light on the voice in your head and left you feeling a bit brighter with the possibility of accessing your best self through nourishment and in turn revealing your best thoughts.

Defining ourselves: What if we don’t know if we are loveable?

This post is written with the upmost vulnerability. I felt called to open up to share my inner most thoughts. What showed up was a massive realization. All my life, I have been repeatedly asking myself questions, questions that have had the power to define me: Am I worthwhile? And ultimately, am I loveable?

I realized that these tiny yet mighty questions have appeared and whispered to me when I experienced a strong negative emotional “Am I worth it?” “Am I loveable?” Do I matter?” They have rocked at my foundation and caused me to go into overdrive; meaning if I don’t do more, I don’t feel loveable.  If I am not somehow pushing myself to the brink than, I am not good enough.

Ego and pride wouldn’t want this to be admitted outwardly, but I can say with confidence a universal truth. Wanting to be included by others, and wanting to feel important to the world and the others that inhabitant it, is part of what makes us living human beings. The desire to know that we are worth loving is a collective yearn we all can attest to.

The caveat?

These self-defining questions that have unimagined power to shape how we feel about ourselves are a deception.

The reality to believe in one moment that you are not worthy of love is a fallacy, and yet unfortunately it’s how so many of us operate our lives out of.  We think that the answer to self-importance and acceptance is outside ourselves. I’m here to tell you that when it comes down to our true nature, the energy of who we all are, it is inside ourselves: love, kindness, gratitude, and it is all absolutely powerful.

It is our thinking that gets in the way, our cyclical thoughts that tear us away from the loving energy that we were created from and embody just by living.

So how do we silence theses debilitating questions and how do we experience ourselves in our true nature?

We feel it. We step away from thinking our way out of problem that arise and we let the energy of our souls’ truth take over. Thinking, for all the good it does us, has a dark side-it’s insidious. You can’t see it operating, but it is there, all the time, and if our “thoughts,” are stronger than our ability to feel the energy of our souls design, we can become trapped in it.

How do we do this? How do we feel and move from our unique places of truth?

First, we follow what we love, what we are drawn to, what makes our blood come alive. Secondly, we trust that feeling-beyond doubt and beyond possible discomfort and we understand that what you love will never misguide you.

When you look to nature-the proof of this message is there. The flower does not grow out of need or worry or judgment, it flourishes into its’ beauty because that is what it was designed to do. What it was put on this Earth to do. Leaving the rest of us to succumb to its beauty.

You are that flower.

Every being on this earth is apart of this big magical universe, we might not understand all of it, but we are all valid. We are all loveable and worthwhile. Underneath all the thinking, we are all just fully love.

Newsletter:

Freedom, yes I’m being cliché. I am finally free of the belief that I am not worthwhile. This is the most vulnerable newsletter to put out there. I grew up with 5 brothers; I thought something was wrong with me. I was always searching ways to feel like I “fit in.”

Now I understand the power of who I am through my womanhood.  I wish I could have understood this earlier. I hope for more young women to feel and understand their worth earlier.  We live in a culture where women are still not valued. We are paid less, treated inferior by some of our leaders and in some societies deemed unworthy. There are wonderful men who honor and revere us, and I’d like to encourage more of that. But ultimately, I want woman to understand and step into their power. That in that unshakeable power lays their freedom.

If you would like to be free from limiting beliefs and step into your own power, there is only one thing left for you to do. Call me.
