Claim Your Independence

Claim Your Independence

Regardless of what your outer world is showing you, inside you have everything you need to survive and thrive. Tap into that energy and allow it to fill you up.

Listen to that inner voice guiding you ever so softly.

Notice how it gently yet relentlessly nudges you to where you need to be.

Nurture your inner relationship and notice how your outer one shifts.

As your relationship grows stronger, you naturally create and uphold the boundaries you need in your life. Those you interact with in the outer world will see the shift within you and respect the boundaries you have created. However, some will not like it and will eventually drift away. 

Do not fret though, for their leaving creates space for someone new to join you.

So go out there and claim that strong independent being that you are!

Focus and Action Turns Dreams Into Reality

Focus and Action Turns Dreams Into Reality

How often do you find yourself working like a dog only to find yourself filled with frustration? The frustration builds because you realize you are not making headway towards your dreams and desires.

What do you do when this happens?

Do you ask yourself, “Will I ever get there?”

If you do, stop! That question will get you nowhere. Instead ask yourself, 

“Am I focusing on the next right action to get me there?”

It doesn’t matter if you just climbed the highest mountain if what you really needed to do was wander the valley below you. Keeping yourself busy doing work that isn’t focused on your goals/desires will only lead to frustration and burnout.

Now with that said, focusing on your dreams without taking action isn’t any better. This creates just as much frustration for all you are doing is dreaming. You missed the step necessary to bring it into the physical world. 

Some may say, “Well isn’t that the way to manifest? To envision and believe it is so?”

That is a part of it however to bring it to fruition you must take some sort of physical action. Otherwise the dream stays in your head.When you find yourself stuck in the dream stage ask yourself, “What action do I need to take?” 

Remember, you must keep your action and focus in alignment to move you toward your dreams!

Let’s say you envision yourself as a speaker who shares a message with huge crowds while traveling all over the world. You can see yourself doing it, you can feel yourself doing it. Now, you need to take action to bring it to fruition.

Ask yourself, “What action do I need to take to make this a reality?”

Write down anything and everything that comes up such as:

  • I need to book venues
    • Visit potential venues
    • Create a budget
    • Create a list of negotiable and non-negotiable items
  • I need to build an audience
    • Share what you have to say with others
    • Join groups that are relevant to my subject or target audience
    • Develop social media skills
  • I need to pick a subject to talk about
    • Need to feel passionate about it
    • Fill a need for others
  • I need to build my confidence in speaking
    • Join Toast Masters
    • Speak to small groups 
    • Practice speaking about it the subject with friends/family
  • I need to book travel
    • Get a passport
      • Find birth certificate for my passport application

It’s OK if they are out-of-order you can rearrange them later. Keep writing until it feels complete.

Now that you captured all the steps, sit with them for a moment. Notice which one is calling you forward. This is now what you will focus on and work towards. Make sure to follow any preceding steps necessary for it and trust that you can do it.

There is Great Power in Your Emotions

There is Great Power in Your Emotions

This power can take you to places you can only imagine. Some based on your greatest dreams and others your worst nightmares.

Only when you learn how to work with them do you flow through the landscape gracefully.

Notice when you allow them to run wild and unchecked. When this happens take time to ground and center yourself. Be aware of what aspects are in need of nurturing as the wild emotions, positive and negative, can easily drain you. Listen to your body, as it will guide you when you need to rest or get up and move. 

As you learn how to work with your emotions you will discover when to reign them in and when to let them take the lead. Notice when they are guiding you to create something new in your life and to share it with the world.

Life is a mystery full of emotions that are ever changing. When you find yourself experiencing the less desirable ones know that they shall pass. Soon the sun will shine and the flowers will bloom. They just needed the emotional storm to come through and clear the space for the new seeds to grow.

 

Forgiveness Creates the Space Needed For Something New in Your Life

Forgiveness Creates the Space Needed For Something New in Your Life

Holding on to anger blocks you from the beauty you deserve in life. It is OK to feel angry, but, when you hold on to it the energy festers and eats away at you.

It is time to let that energy go, for YOUR sake.

The festering energy is getting in the way, blocking you along your path.

It is creating difficulties that do not have to be there.

Open up your heart and shower yourself and all involved with unconditional love and forgiveness.

Love and forgive and a whole new world will open up before your eyes.
