“It is through the greatest storms, that the brightest rainbows appear” – Unknown
What adversities have you faced? How have you become who you are now because of them? How can you be grateful for all the hardship and let it mold you into the diamond you are?
We all have tough times, those times we feel like everything is crumbling and our ego says, you can’t do this, you are not strong enough, you are not supported or equipped for this and then behind that is a burning inside you, waiting to respond and say “Hey! YES I am”, you find inner strength. Through some tough times, like being alone with no support, no money, being homeless, the death of my mother, challenges in school – dropping out at 15, being physically, verbally and sexually abused, having things stolen and having my dignity taken away, being abused in work situations, being ill, having loved ones ill, giving all of myself to others and being empty, many heart breaks, nearly killing myself at 10 and also at 17. Through all of this though I am so grateful because that taught me some amazing lessons, below are my 10 greatest lessons from all the adversity I have experienced and how I used it to empower me, grow me, shake me and fulfill me to be more, see more, and live a life full of passion, love, inspirationand joy being authentically and un-apologetically me. Having some crazy andamazing experiences.
I have learnt that anything seen through love can transform whatever it is into something greater, the practices of gratitude, love and forgiveness allowing us to expand our minds and souls to a higher thought and way of being.
“When we think we have hit rock bottom, we just decide we are not letting things get any worse and we begin to use our inner power for what we are here to do.” – Cynthia Jauch
In times of immense stress and challenge, we begin to see things from a place of being humble, from a looking up point, seeking truth and answers. We start to question why? and we want to know what to do? We look inside ourselves to find the strength and fire to get up and be better.
All life has ups and downs and through the downs we find a new appreciation for when the storm calms and the rainbow comes out. Use the intense emotions and drive to create a transformation within you. You are great, you will do great things, finding courage to be the brilliant being you are.
The bottom is a chance to re create yourself and your life, a new life, a new you, a new day, you can start again at any point, become who you want to be, who you feel you are deep inside. There is only a view of going up from the bottom. It is in each step in any direction we take, that begins a journey. Sometimes one journey ends and a new chapter to your life will begin.
Celebrate the new and allow the mourning of the old you to drift away, like the stormy clouds, allowing the true colors of your inner rainbow to come out and bring a smile and joy to you once again.
“True forgiveness is not always easy, sometimes it takes time to realize and release the negative attachment. As long as we hold on to it we hold ourselves back from peace. The dark energy of pain, hatred, revenge, powerlessness, blame and defence keeps us in this negative hole, replaying and repeating the pattern. The energy increases and manifests in physical pain, illness, stress, discord with others. We see more things to be annoyed at in people we care about, we become the victims of our thoughts and actions and project this and our stories into our reality.”
This is number ONE for me because without apology and forgiveness, including to ourselves, we hold on to the negative charge and stop ourselves from seeing the potential for more and release the pain and feelings like anger and resentment that keep us blocked and dense in our energy and this creates illness, fatigue and feelings of disconnectedness.
“To say you’re sorry isn’t easy, admit your error and be genuine, accept some kind of failure and allow yourself to be vulnerable. Most of us avoid this, some like the plague. How ever it is so powerful and liberating to finally be honest and admit fault and try to correct your error of hurting another person. It takes a lot of courage.”
I have a regular meditation practice where I will forgive myself and all those I feel have harmed or wrong me and sometimes it is emotional, but I have learned to let this flow and grow and release me from a past experience and not let it negatively affect me and the future.
To me self love is about removing all the thoughts, feelings, words and actions which are unloving towards ourselves. This is a process, but an extremely important one. When we are unconsciously feeling unworthy and unloved by us or by others, we create sabotage and punishment for ourselves. Leaving us feeling lonely, abandoned and unworthy of the things we deserve and desire. But we have put ourselves there. Yes, our society does not educate us to embrace our individuality, in fact it suppresses our nifty quirks and gifts, all to be the same for a future of feeling enslaved by a system and grabbing at little things to create joy and fulfilment, easily addicted to that little time we feel love, or joy and then when it is gone, we crumble, not having a solid pillar of inner love for us, which is so important for our growth, fulfilment and connections in life.”
“We all have a mind, the energy of our mental bodies. This place is the beginning of all creation. When we are victims and servants to our mind, we feel helpless to our unconscious habits, patterns and behaviours, humans are naturally creatures of habit, habits in our thoughts become our feelings and then actions and they inevitably become our results. In our lives we want the best, so why would we not harness a powerful tool of our own minds to create all that we can think of.
Our unconscious mind is so powerful, it decides that our body will work and keep us alive, the way we see the world, what things we allow in and out of our mind, what we will actually see (we have a delete, distort and generalize filter in our minds).”
“Key 1: Joining together with Like minded people –”
“As we join our minds, gifts and creativity, the world we see transforms into the masterpiece we enjoy in our fantasies” – Cynthia Jauch
In our own minds we can fall victim to programming, but with our choice in awareness to observe and utilise the mind as a part of our experience and potential for actions and creation. We can become a master of the mind. When we choose to put our thoughts and feelings to good use and come together with others of like mind, anything we can dream of and imagination is possible.”
“The choices of the past, tool us with awareness to create the future, right now.” – Cynthia Jauch
It is through our own choice to allow the past to affect us in a negative or positive way, our choosing of attitude and where we use the tools granted to us to grow, evolve and thrive.
We in the NOW, have the power to create our future and if we want it to be amazing we must commit to make now amazing and to let go of the pain, hurt and suffering by releasing and healing and becoming more accepting and loving of us and others. We become aware of the things in our lives that shock us into seeing it, we than have the awareness to make a choice to change it and let the things no longer right for us go.
In all our past choices lies an answer and opportunity to see how we have created what is happening right now and we can change this and grow this for what we want now and in the future, no many what has happened in the past, you are the master of your life, you either choose to not allow yourself to be aware of your choices and feel victim or you allow yourself to be empowered to create everything you want in your life and in the world.
Allow for transformation in you, to shed the old and create the new, in now and in your future. Your past does not dictate your future, you do.
“In our external world of judgement, restriction, rules, guides, signs and structure, we are almost in a cage, in our bodies, we feel limited but it starts from the mind. Within us are our beliefs, memories, experiences and programs of how to behave, how to be, what to do, what is allowed, some of us rebel and some of us have different social experiences of what is acceptable. I have often reflected on the contents of my mind and I am currently working through some deep programs from long ago, as I sit in the silence of my mind and observe all the thoughts, restrictions, defeating feelings and judgements, I feel almost a slave and trapped in this space.
I have a longing today to be free, to feel at ease, for the past few days I have felt so much building, in waves it comes and drifts away. Through my new observation and awareness, it has occurred to me these programs have always been there, I was just not so aware of these ones, from conditioning and societies view of acceptable and real. We all have these inner dialogue and scripts we play unconsciously most of the time, commanding us to feelings and actions, to fall in love, to judge, to react, to reach out, to cry. As a new perspective and observation begins things start to shift around us, as it is no longer something we are unaware of.”
When we engage in an acts that release Endorphins and Oxytocin in the brain it create bliss and happiness. Doing things you love, being at places you like, hugging others, exercise, travel and adventure, sex (Intimate and caring), learning new things and chocolate are good ways to release these hormones in the brain.
“Over 12 months ago the Campaign Free Hugs 4 Awareness began, from an idea on a bed in 2014, after a thread of many interesting occurrences, from an article on the health benefit of hugging trees, to a Ted Talk by Paul J Zak author of “The Moral Molecule” , explaining how Oxytocin is the Moral Molecule and the happiness hormone, then shows the quickest way to release it is to give someone a hug. The following day I took to the streets of Brisbane City in Australia.”
“After that fateful first day of giving out hugs, which the council asked me to go somewhere else or I would cope a fine, I continued…….
Deciding I would devote a whole day to giving out hugs and not just my lunch break, as I got such a fantastic response from people, sharing their stories and with them surprised to get comfort in a busy and not so compassionate place, in the centre of the city.”
“I started learning to surf last year, something I have always wanted to do. Since I was about four years old and lived next to the beach in Queensland, I loved it; the sand, the wind, the salty water and the sound of the waves breaking, like a soothing song and hum, buzzing and calming. My favourite thing at that time in my life, was getting up really early and dragging any adult I could to the beach. I would get dunked so much. Being that I was so little and had never been taught to swim.”
“Going back to that four year old me, I remember my fierce determination to just be in the water, flowing with the waves, trusting the flow, loving them with all my heart. I wasn’t angry when I got dunked, I didn’t think I was doing anything wrong. I was simply enjoying the ups and downs, the ride of life, the waves and motion, the adventure and excitement. After my last lesson I was determined to stand up and to be able to use my own surf board, so I paddled out further on my own, even though I was told that my surf board isn’t the best for beginners. I really wanted to feel what it was like to be out in the ocean, connected and free. There was a longing to have that healing and powerful energy of the water all around and the abundant expanse of the life it brings. After some time and not much luck, a few life guards went by in a rescue boat, they asked if I was OK and recommended going somewhere closer to the land, as there was a lot of rough rips at the moment. I said I would go back and in my attempts learnt that the waves had other ideas. Eventually the life guards came back and told me they were taking me in, which I agreed to. I thought it funny, I was content though, that I gave it my best and got to use my own intuition. There was a lot of near moments of standing up and succeeding and for that I was happy. I learnt a few extra things from that though, that we can tackle life how we tackle small situations, the challenges and words of others, our faith in yourself and our confidence in our ability to give new things a go. “
This has become one of my greatest lessons to be self loving and knowing and honoring myself more deeply and Speaking Your Truth. It all starts with knowing your worth and sticking to what is best for you and your well-being.
“I think the old paradigm male/female connection and synthetic and ego relationships needs to be shed, it doesn’t suit most people (hence all the: fights, gender battles, abuse and cheating) but most people don’t question it to create something new.
I now will only enter into a Sacred Soul Union with someone, and only engage in Sacred Sex.
But I now know what I want with clarity.
I couldn’t get it before I knew of the opposite. All my actions will be aligned to only accepting these things into my world as possibilities.
Get Clear, Learn what you don’t want, Labels of the old and common way don’t work for most people.”
“The final decider to share my new clarity on what I really want in a connection and partnership with someone has come after having four and a half years mostly single and for nearly two years of that time I was celibate as I was unable to climax after some time in a relationship and not feeling trust or intimacy. I was in the normal relationships from the age of 17-24 all but about 5 months of my adult life was I free to be me, learn about me and do what I wanted. I always ended up bored and feeling trapped and like I had lost myself to the other person and their needs and wants, which was always a choice. But after a 5 year relationship that ended and I left with hardly anything after working for 4 years at a job I hated in order to make a family home and have a fair relationship, I was angry and I realized while in India several years later, all the daddy issues come up, but it wasn’t just my daddy, it was the masculine energy, I had mutated my own masculine and shunned it, and any male to me was untrustworthy and would break my heart after getting my trust or use me for sex, which I was usually very clever to avoid.
After hitch hiking around Australia in April, I was more aware of myself and my sexuality and desires, I was more balanced in both energies, I had learned to become vulnerable and intuitive and nurturing and also powerful, creative, protective and supportive. I was falsely led into a guy’s place under the pretenses that he liked me, he appeared to be a spiritual guy wanting to be genuine. I fell for a lie, he then proceeded to manipulate me and kicked me out of his bed after saying he can’t offer me more than sex, he spent hours seeming uninterested after I arrived and I was happy to just hang out. But then when he kissed me and stopped and said “I can’t offer you more.” I was confused, for one I didn’t know him that well, so I was silly to be there in the first place, but we had met before and had many mutual spiritual and kind friends. After I said I was ok either way, since I was actually tired and just wanted to go to sleep, he said I will set up the couch for you. I was shocked and started thinking “Oh my god, no one has ever thrown me out of their bed”, but it got worse, he than text me and told me to come back, I said no and after many messages he came and grabbed my hand and took me outside with a blanket to have sex under the stars, I felt shocked and I didn’t stop him. Why? and than while we were having sex, I realized something in my new awareness. I wasn’t in my body, I actually realized I am not usually in my body, I start making noises and they think I am enjoying myself, but I total disassociate not feeling intimacy or connection of the soul level, my soul protected me.”
“GRATITUDE!! what are you most grateful for?
Do you regularly count your blessings?
I am thankful for all of you and everything in my reality. Especially the feeling of gratitude = grateful + attitude. If you don’t already have a daily practice of thinking, writing and/or speaking out loud what you’re grateful for, then I challenge you to.”
“I started my gratitude journey about 24 months ago and it transformed my life. I had seen a few posts on facebook about challenges people were doing and was curious, then after a walk one day, I noticed this little pink spiritual shop that popped up out of nowhere, I walked in to look at incense and had no cash, so I couldn’t buy any. While looking around the lady behind the counter approached me to help, once chatting she gave me some much needed guidance about a concern I had with an ex boyfriend and mentioned a gratitude jar she used with her kids. A few months later this shop had vanished after I had finally got to do a group healing session. Following that first day there, I went and bought a jar and decorated it, I also bought a pretty pen and paper to use to get excited about my daily gratitude.”
As I am writing this, I am at the same friends place as the blog written in the text below, when so many synchronicities occurred, and the same thing has happened, at the end of this post, money shows up for me to go to Bali (which I brought a native american headdress while there), which was on my vision board beginning of 2015 but I never got there, until Jan 2017, ever since travelling last year, I have been guided to America, things to do with Native Americans and my parallel life I saw of me as a Native American after returning from travel in 2015, in a past life regression and than 3 different mediums mentioning it and Native AmericanSpirit Guides with me.
“Start Christmas day, Mountain climb up the glass house mountain, Tibrogargan to watch the sun rise. On the drive noticing 3:33am when nearly there and listening to Hands by Jewel and thinking of my Mum, being a bit emotional. This is the song she used to listen to when she cleaned the house and I put it in the video I made for her at the funeral.”
333 in Angel Numbers: Linked to the ascended masters being near and offering support.
“On the way down after talking about my Native American life, I hugged a tree hug. My amazing soul who came with me Greg (my best friend), was telling me about the Native Indian which gave him the Merkabah in a heart I was borrowing…….”
“Last year while climbing this mountain I found out my name Cynthia is actually after Mount Kynthos in Greece and a female name because of the Moon/Hunt Goddess Artemis the Daughter of Zeus, who was born on the Island Delos and got nicknamed Cynthia after the Mount Kynthos on Delos.”
“A week ago I got the Earth symbol tattooed on my wrist, with the kanji for year of Dragon and Yin Yang with the Bagua symbols for all things…..”
“Back to Chinese culture my Nine Star Ki is 3.5.3, a process that pre dates Numerology. Remember this because it’s important, In my book on my kindle, The 3 is a warrior soul number. also if the middle number is 5 it adopts the side numbers, being 333. (coincidence form above time noticed) ”
“3 – Tree: Associated with: Sunrise, East, Early Spring, Liver/Gallbladder, Light green. Character of House: Proceeding, Advancement, Beginnings, Accomplishing, Optimism, Creativity. The 3 Tree Personality: Emotional, strong, idealistic, poetic, brilliant, active, aesthetic, kind-hearted, straightforward, romantic, successful. Extremes: Temperamental, opinionated, stubborn, competitive”
“After the climb I saw Horses everywhere and forgot to look them up in my book ( I got a book for Spirit Animals). A few days after seeing the horse everywhere, words, pictures and symbols I looked it up. the horse means: “You’re about to embark on an unexpected adventure and need a backup of stamina”.
“So I must mention one of my new best friends who I call my elder flame’s name is Lindsay, who is a Taurus and just like my mum, and the sign parallel to the street I am staying is called Lindsay Street.”
Lindsay is in america (a writer for Elephant Journal, and her business with husband “The Life Warrior“) , and there is so much going on there with government and protesting in Dakota. It is no coincidence I end up write back in “Alexandra Headlands” with links and Signs to Egypt everywhere and one of my best friends Lucy message me from Alexandria U.S (also a place in Egypt I keep getting drawn back to from a parallel life in which I shared with my ex [Ryan and his son Ben who were brothers]and Ben wanted to be a bird Scientist and knew way too much about birds).
“In Egypt, the meaning of the phoenix is connected with the sun and the Nile. Their version of the phoenix was a Bennu, which was part heron, and part falcon. The Bennu was said to control the cycle of the sun each day. It flew with the sun in its beak, plucking it from its sleeping place at dawn, and putting it to rest at sunset. In this way, the Bennu is symbolic of the daily death and birth of the sun.”
Lucy was talking about a song she sang with the second word Phoenix (my spirit guide animal) I see it everywhere (after meeting Ben), just as I had messaged her. I am leaving for the states in 2 weeks as the money has just shown up and my travel writing will be put on my blog Traveller Destiny. I also have a friend called Orion (The Lover of Artemis, goddess of the Moon) in the states near Phoenix , and his real name is the same as my exs (who I met before travelling in 2015), who is tattooed on my back within my mums name “VonmaRYANdrews”, which I got done in Bali in January. There is more synchronicities in the above blog post, linking also to me going to hawaii on this trip (Lifelong dream to go for my HoneyMoon, signs to go with people, signs and linked to my affinity to Dolphins, and the Pleiades [There are links between the Pleiades and Artemis] (recently when I was at Crystal Castle, a medium told me I was from the Pleiades) opposite the Orion Constellation, so they are linked too. Orion’s Belt is aligned to the 3 Great Pyramids in Egypt.
“Faith is not an easy thing, even if you have so much faith in something for so long, it can all change in an instant.
Life is always changing and challenging us, every time we think we have it figured out, it throws a curve ball to knock us off our high horse and challenges our faith and knowledge of what is true.
Finding it once again becomes the best journey and growth of our lives, to throw our own ego and uncertainties out the window and have room to see the door, that’s been awaiting,our entrance through it, back to peace, comfort and divinity. “
10. Ask and you Shall receive:
In my recent experience whenever I am in a hard situation I ask for help and say what I want or I write it down and figure out what I need to do and pretty quickly and opportunity shows up. I always a have faith and I always ask with gratitude. I recently was in the rain at 3am in the morning, after having a fight with my partner (now ex as of the following day), my phone was disconnected, I felt alone, but I surrendered and thanked god for help repeatedly, soon my tears dried and I felt guided to go for a walk, the rain cleared and I bumped into a girl walking home drunk, who lived a few houses away, I asked if she was ok and I mentioned my night wasn’t so good either. She then offered me a room, clothes to change in to and a warm shower, I went to bed so happy and grateful.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
“The heart can withstand so much, but remember to fill it with your soul’s light, to heal, open and transcend the mundaneness.” – Cynthia Jauch
As we hurt, we learn of a wound from long ago, so we can be aware, to heal. No matter the trigger, a gentleness and care to see and accept whatever the reason for the wound or triggered it’s pain. We aren’t always conscious of the first experience, but with the intention to heal.
The needed methods and balms will show up in your life, to nourish you and aid you to reach new heights.
You are immensely worthy of healing, joy, peace and love. No actions, or word, or deed, or past can keep you from an ability to heal, once you set the choice and believe it’s possible.
Respecting Your Sacred Temple: The Gender Battle within and 10 Tips on Deeper Respect.
We all have goals to improve our body and we can all abuse it at times, but now is the time to change our attitude towards our body and how it supports us, give it the respect it deserves and work on some changes to create a thriving temple for our growth, wellness and fulfilling our potential in life.
Our bodies are the vehicles for our lives and how well and enjoyable we are experiencing our lives, how fulfilled and supported we feel and what we feel capable of doing.
There is a major imbalance in ourselves, in both waves of polar energy, both the masculine and feminine within us all, we fight within ourselves for the right to be heard and understood by both gender and through this fight we then fight with others of the opposite sex, which are triggering our inner battle.
Old Paradigm for each Pole – How this may not be serving you.
Sexual property, being submissive, negative stigma of what is beauty, being seen as an object’s, feeling like we need to be as strong as men and do everything for ourselves, hormonal imbalances due to the pill and morning after pill, PMS myth – it is common but not healthy, impossible and unhealthy expectations around sex, not getting sexual satisfaction, being disrespected and hushed, told to calm down and belittled, not appreciated for your gentle, nurturing, intuitive and powerful nature, who you are attracted to.
These are a number of ways that the collective views and stigmas of gender and the temple of the body affect women today, it is very sad and something needs to change, but as women we need to take a stand and first start loving and nurturing ourselves and creating healthy boundaries, than sticking to them. So we create a new benchmark for the collective and the other pole to step up.
My message to the Feminine:
Women know your divinity as a portal for creation. Your temple is sacred. Don’t let it be touched by those who don’t honour and respect your sacredness and splendour.
Love your body for the amazing tool it is for your life, experience and expression and never be ashamed of it or for only allowing the best for you and it.
Needing to be Macho, must have muscles, needs to want sex and lead, porn, told to be emotionless and toughen up, extra pressure to provide and support a family and get a house, fight for your country, make something of yourself, get a good job, keep it together for everyone else, work hard, pay for dinner, open doors, be romantic, being dominating, acting like you don’t care, who you are attracted to, not feeling respected for working hard and feeling you can’t do what you want to wind down.
These are a number of ways that the collective views and stigmas of gender and the temple of the body affect men today, the way men get pressured into having to be so macho and emotionless robots and slaves is unfair and outdated, both of the genders want to be able to provide and share different roles, the promotion of porn and how it negatively and unrealistically gives young men the view of how to treat women and the illusion that this is what women want to be aroused and desired as sex objects, they are too naive to realise the lies, this is also a way to create negative views of the feminine energy inside them, that it will be abused and is not allowed to be shown. This all needs to change, now is the time to take back the power to educate and love ourselves without anger, lust, abuse and egotistical ideals of a patriarchal and matriarchal society.
My message to the Masculine:
Man know your divinity as a force of creating and protecting. Your temple is sacred. Don’t let it be touched by those who don’t honour and respect your sacredness and splendour.
Love your body for the amazing tool it is for your life, experience and expression and never be ashamed of it or feel forced to do something that does not feel right and noble to do. Be the one to step up and open your heart, don’t fear the views of others. Embrace your inner self and power to be balanced. Allow your good qualities to be honoured and respected.
“Love both parts of your soul, the male and female, we each hold both poles within, allow balance and utilise the gifts both energies hold within” – Cynthia Jauch
“As we go through life we begin to notice different parts of ourselves, sometimes the collective view of the duality in us and imbalance can make it hard for us to accept and use both parts.
The battle of the sexes and other dualities is that of the battle within us all, when we can see and experience this we begin to find a way for peace for both energies to live within our temple and they learn to work as one.
Over time we can learn how to harmonize with both songs and vibrations of the energies that exists within all of us, this creates an imaging and perfect feeling of wholeness and empowerment and affects our outer world and the way we connect and engage with other energies around us.”
We all need to take responsibility for our own healing and that means both pole within us, there is too many battles of the sexes and it does start within, but we need to as a whole come together and apologise and forgive and see our part in the whole, to grow, evolve and create more harmony. The devastation’s in the world today is a direct effect to the cause of unhealed wounds within us, it will continue until we each take our part to step up, be our best, love ourselves first and take loving actions for our temple and our path ahead.
Healing is a journey of commitment to see the wounds in our triggers and then nurture ourselves to heal them, to have gratitude to those who allowed us to see, to explore ourselves with love and grow this love consistently. It is important to allow for Unity within us and allow this for the collective.
10 Tips to really respect your temple:
1. Power of your thoughts:
Thinking nice thoughts and saying kind words about it, no matter what you don’t like, you will change and improve how it looks by loving, accepting and nurturing this part of your body, this will promote confidence, higher vibrations to create shifts and changes.
Meditation or contemplation in silence and stillness:
This is all part of thought and mastery of the mind, the mind is a part of you connected to your temple and enables you to be aware to create balance in your body by how our thoughts affect our physical matter and the emotions and actions they cultivate.
“Through inner reflection and stillness of mind and body, all fears can be overcome, all problems solved and all things created” – Cynthia Jauch
2. Nourish through nature:
Ground with bare feet and go to forests, mountains and the beach or water bank, connect to it as much as you can, hugging trees, sitting on grass, climbing mountains, swimming in the water (very cleansing for your body and aura, releasing a buildup of toxic thoughts and emotions), make sure to thank the land for its healing energy and show respect to it. Get out in the sun and breathe deeply. Thus allowing all the elements that are in you to be replenished by those outside.
3. Move how you Love:
Whether it be dancing, skipping, yoga, running, martial arts, sports, cycling, swimming, skateboarding or anything that gets you consistently moving, allowing your body to move in a way you enjoy, promotes wellness and balance. Movement is number 4 of 7 things we need to survive and thrive as beings, it even comes before eating. When we move our bodies we allow energy to shift and to learn and grow ourselves in new ways, feeling stronger and more empowered to achieve more.
3. Conscious Eating:
The food we eat is both fuel and medicine to the body, so naturally if we feed it poison and toxins it will eventually shut down, slow down and have no way to build back up again. Our bodies are amazing to heal and evolve but when they are too overloaded with things they have not been designed to consume they become incapable of fulfilling their potential. Conscious eating means to tune in and know what your body needs, to create balance, and to not give it the things that make it feel sluggish and unwell, most allergies and mental health challenges have direct links to food, especially ADHD in children and other conditions that are growing rapidly in our culture and society, the common theme in this is the food we eat is getting worse. Until we take responsibility for our bodies and show them love we can not expect them to respond with love to us.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” – Hippocrates
4. Self Love:
With this one comes a whole plethora of things including all of the above, but for deeper love we must see ourselves as we are and choose to accept even the flaws, to hold unconditional love of self, to learn what the self is and first we must learn what the self isn’t. A choice must be made to take regular action to love self, part of this is knowing your boundaries and not letting you or anyone else neglect what you rightfully deserve in the way of respect, appreciation, acknowledgement and joy. Doing things that you love regularly, being creative, finding a space for healing, connecting with other like people and being nurturing when things are tough, giving yourself that time to process and grow and sticking to the boundaries and values you hold dear to you, speaking your truth and holding your ground in love. Self Love is one of the key things to create positive shifts in you and your life.
“Don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first” – Carrie Bradshaw
5. Self Care:
This includes hygiene, the toxicity of the products you use, drinking enough water, educating yourself on what is best for you, trusting your intuition and what is right for you, creating regular practices that care for the bodies needs, like healing, extra time out, knowing when you need to get into nature, making sure you have enough sleep and rest for what your day will need energetically. It is no one else responsibility to care for us but us. We need to understand others will not treat us better than we treat ourselves.
6. Sacred Sex:
For me this means only engaging in any sexual act when it is out of love and respect, in a way that is for the intimacy and connection of both parties who are committed and love each other, sex is naturally sacred but our views and attitudes of it has been so twisted that it has become a tool for quick pleasure and lust in which degrades it and all involved. If you are seeking sex as an escape eventually you will have to stop and heal and take responsibility, either through an STD’s, STI’s or pregnancy. Sex is meant to be an act of love, but with so much of the skewed views and attitudes that have been influencing us, people are scared to be seen and open up to being real, raw and vulnerable. Sex is so much better when sacredness and honour is involved, where two souls are connecting to feel unified and spiritually alive and grow.
7. Your Associations:
The people you surround yourself with are a big indicator of how you will respect yourself and your temple, you are a part of that temple and if those around are not loving, respecting and nurturing themselves, chances are you will become someone who isn’t. We are naturally affected by those around us unless we choose to totally close off and not have anyone around, which can be harmful to our mental and physical health. Choose people to be around who love and respect their bodies, they will encourage you and treat you right and you will grow and evolve even more, you will feel happier and more connected to your soul and integrated and grounded in your temple.
8. Choose THRIVE:
This is key to aligning yourself to do all of these things mentioned, you must change your thoughts and beliefs and actions to THRIVE, to grow, to be nourished, to be supported and to excel, to not settle for OK, or GOOD. In our current society and health system, the goal is to be OK. WHY should we just be OK? Shouldn’t we want to be amazing? As best as we can be? As best as we can feel? YES we should. So choose to thrive, believe it with every part of your being, you can thrive, you will thrive, know it, show it and allow it.
9. Get good at saying NO!:
It is not often easy to say NO, and I don’t mean to opportunities, I mean keep your boundaries firm and don’t give yourself away to those who don’t respect and appreciate you, those who want you for what you can give them and will attempt to manipulate you and talk down to you so they can get what they want. It is good for us to learn to say NO to us also for those things that we know in our soul are not for our highest good. Having balance is important, so be conscious about the things you are asked and see the benefit for you, of saying “YES” or “NO” and always trust your gut.
10. Commit to Personal Growth and Authenticity.
We can become so used to the person we think we are and then we can lose the meaning and passion in life, to really treat our souls and temples as sacred we must keep moving forward to grow expand and set new intentions, get out of our comfort zones and feel liberated and excited for the newness and the person we become. It is not always an easy task becoming authentic there is a lot of ourselves we did not see, and as we do we must use our self love to grow with nurture and care. When we become more authentically us, we align ourselves to those things that are true to our heart, our values and our true path and potential.
“As we go through life, what we see is us, the parts sometimes we refuse to see. Don’t hide from your shadow, love it and let it integrate into you as a whole.” – Cynthia Jauch
Those things from others that trigger us are from within us, the anger, frustration, resentment, struggle, it comes from deep within us, something they do, has just brought it to the surface. When we become more aware of ourselves and our stuff we begin to see this, we can then observe, learn to love and heal these parts of us and thank the other person for this awareness.
We than can rise above our inner battle and feel more centred and empowered to be our true authentic selves and let our gifts shine, showing all parts of ourselves with confidence. We are amazing and fascinating creatures, all our different bodies, physical, emotional, mental, astral and more. We are multi-dimensional and connected to all.
Our inner state vibrates out into the universe to attract what we need to learn and remember, so we can rid ourselves of our inner battle, pain and false guilt of our existence.
To a future of peace within, nourishing our sacred temples and respecting each other with, love, compassion, nurture and kindness.
We all have a mind, the energy of our mental bodies. This place is the beginning of all creation. When we are victims and servants to our mind, we feel helpless to our unconscious habits, patterns and behaviours, humans are naturally creatures of habit, habits in our thoughts become our feelings and then actions and they inevitably become our results. In our life we want the best, so why would we not harness a powerful tool of our own minds to create all that we can think of.
“As we join our minds, gifts and creativity, the world we see transforms into the masterpiece we enjoy in our fantasies” – Cynthia Jauch
In our own minds we can fall victim to programming, but with our choice in awareness to observe and utilize the mind as a part of our experience and potential for actions and creation. We can become a master of the mind. When we choose to put our thoughts and feelings to good use and come together with others of like mind, anything we can dream of and imagination is possible.
So why not think of goodness in the future, think of peace and fun, health and vitality. We can all come together as a community and share our natural gifts and creativity to grow and evolve for this earth, for each other and most importantly for ourselves.
If you ever have had a fantasy about having things better, brighter, more colorful, more vibrant and more friendly, you are the main component to making this happen in the world. Then connect to other people wanting to see this happen and the world we see before us becomes a much better place.
We do not need to be told or be saved to create what we want in this place, we just need to choose that what is in our mind and choices is what creates the world we all live in, it is with in all of us to take that step, to see what we can really do, use our minds and thoughts for greatness, for peace, for love and for creating an amazing future for us, our families, children, loved one and each other.
The earth does not need us, we need it for our bodies survival, what can you do to be a part of something brighter being created? Our Mother Earth deserves us to start taking responsibility for the place we live.
“Set your thoughts, to the highest place, there divinity will lay. Within you it will grow.” – Cynthia Jauch
Our thoughts hold our biggest creative power, all man made things and actions start in thought. If we raise our awareness to be present to our thoughts, we can begin to choose them again. Than once we of our own will raise them up to goodness. We become of noble and divine nature. To create from love, with highest intent and vibration. As our creator, we become master architects for us and our world.
That is our connection and likeness to our father. To heaven and all the universe and multiverses. All creates, all is in all. We can harness such true potential and power, through the self mastery and focused energy of the mind.
Key 3: Reflection, Meditation and Stillness of the Mind –
“Through inner reflection and stillness of mind and body, all fears can be overcome, all problems solved and all things created” – Cynthia Jauch
As we stop from our busy lives of chaos and allow all intrusions and imbalances to pass us by, we find a place of peace within, where we can let go of the ego stories and guilt and shame programed deep within.
In a place of humble and silent observation we can begin to see the false, allowing it to melt away and to feel clearer and lighter, we will then rise up and be given graces, to endure any struggle and to feel equipped.
We from a place of inner knowing, can be inspired clearly to create, our focus of laser strength to manifest so fast and to have our hearts purest intention be created in our outside mirror. To truly find this inner stillness takes a little time but the first steps are to choose and commit to you.
Through meditation, or a like practice of stillness, focused and disciplined intentions we can learn to master our minds and create amazing things in ourselves and our lives, you can draw, or write, or sit in silence. Having an anchor or something to hold your focus is so important, like a mantra or affirmation to repeat, a candle to look at, a prayer to say, a photo to look at, something which you can bring your attention back to and over time the mind will still for longer periods.
The routine is called Morning Pages, and people ranging from journalist Oliver Burkeman to entrepreneur Tim Ferriss say it’s changed their lives.
Morning Pages have emerged as a beloved ritual in the years since author Julia Cameron shared the practice in her 1992 book about creativity, The Artist’s Way. Cameron explains that she took up writing each morning after directing a film that was badly received. Filled with self-doubt and creatively blocked, she needed a way to get her artist mojo back. Morning Pages turned out to be it.
Cameron was living in Mexico, recovering from her troubled experience with the movie business and trying to figure out what she might do instead. Writing each morning became her pastime, she says, “something to do instead of staring at the mountain all the time.”
1. It lowers stress — literally. Research published just last month in the journal Health Psychology shows that mindfulness is not only associated with feeling less stressed, it’s also linked with decreased levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
2. It lets us get to know our true selves. Mindfulness can help us see beyond those rose-colored glasses when we need to really objectively analyze ourselves. A study in the journal Psychological Science shows that mindfulness can help us conquer common “blind spots,” which can amplify or diminish our own flaws beyond reality.
I think the old paradigmmale/female connection and synthetic and ego relationships needs to be shed, it doesn’t suit most people (hence all the: fights, gender battles, abuse and cheating) but most people don’t question it to create something new.
I now will only enter into a Sacred Soul Union with someone, and only engage in Sacred Sex.
But I now know what I want with clarity.
I couldn’t get it before I knew of the opposite. All my actions will be aligned to only accepting these things into my world as possibilities.
Get Clear, Learn what you don’t want, Labels of the old and common way don’t work for most people.
We are worth the joy, bliss, expansion, infinite and unconditional love.
A lot of stigma comes along with the titles of girlfriend, marriage and relationship, this will affect you and the other person you verbally and/or written contract with for connection. Does this serve your highest good? Or is it what we have been told is the only way to connect, engage and be intimate with another person?
There is always choices and we have the power to create our lives and ourselves in any way we choose. Who are we really?
I choose unconditional love, freedom, sacred and divine deep connection, total respect, expression and conscious expansion and growth with any other person I decide to merge my soul with.
I urge if only to think about this, for a little while and ask yourself why you want so badly to follow a tradition that limits you, makes you owned, makes you wish to resist, creates conflict, a potential for hurt and betrayal, devalues your infinite soul and sacred temple and makes you feel guilted into it.
Sex and relationships are not even about love anymore, they become about what people can get, through finances, things, kids, time, gifts, attention and validation of them as to feel like they are worthy to exist and be loved. But we all are worthy.
Love begins within and you won’t be happy and truly connected to another soul or being until you learn to do it within yourself.
Now I am not saying don’t get married if you wish to, but from the things I have learnt of observing myself, my ego, my insecurities, doing massive healing on all levels, self love and dream therapy work I have started to see where a new way can be needed for me. The old does not fulfil me and what my soul is craving for.
The final decider to share my new clarity on what I really want in a connection and partnership with someone has come after having four and a half years mostly single and for nearly two years of that time I was celibate as I was unable to climax after some time in a relationship and not feeling trust or intimacy. I was in the normal relationships from the age of 17-24 all but about 5 months of my adult life was I free to be me, learn about me and do what I wanted. I always ended up bored and feeling trapped and like I had lost myself to the other person and their needs and wants, which was always a choice. But after a 5 year relationship that ended and I left with hardly anything after working for 4 years at a job I hated in order to make a family home and have a fair relationship, I was angry and I realized while in India several years later, all the daddy issues come up, but it wasn’t just my daddy, it was the masculine energy, I had mutated my own masculine and shunned it, and any male to me was untrustworthy and would break my heart after getting my trust or use me for sex, which I was usually very clever to avoid.
After hitch hiking around Australia in April, I was more aware of myself and my sexuality and desires, I was more balanced in both energies, I had learned to become vulnerable and intuitive and nurturing and also powerful, creative, protective and supportive. I was falsely led into a guy’s place under the pretenses that he liked me, he appeared to be a spiritual guy wanting to be genuine. I fell for a lie, he then proceeded to manipulate me and kicked me out of his bed after saying he can’t offer me more than sex, he spent hours seeming uninterested after I arrived and I was happy to just hang out. But then when he kissed me and stopped and said “I can’t offer you more.” I was confused, for one I didn’t know him that well, so I was silly to be there in the first place, but we had met before and had many mutual spiritual and kind friends. After I said I was ok either way, since I was actually tired and just wanted to go to sleep, he said I will set up the couch for you. I was shocked and started thinking “Oh my god, no one has ever thrown me out of their bed”, but it got worse, he than text me and told me to come back, I said no and after many messages he came and grabbed my hand and took me outside with a blanket to have sex under the stars, I felt shocked and I didn’t stop him. Why? and than while we were having sex, I realized something in my new awareness. I wasn’t in my body, I actually realized I am not usually in my body, I start making noises and they think I am enjoying myself, but I total disassociate not feeling intimacy or connection of the soul level, my soul protected me.
On some level this was sexual abuse, how ever I learnt something and I will not go into pressing charges, I am happy to raise awareness for other men and women who have been manipulated like this as I know many have, but the issues for this goes much deeper. Some people see this as OK, that this is the norm and our culture, so many fear commitment, when really they just want Soul Mate or our Twin Flame and don’t know how to go about it, or creating true intimate and soul connections. We are not taught how to connect to ourselves, we are taught to feel guilty about sex, sensuality and connection. How wrong is this? For our first desires as children on learning to connect is naturally and primitively a sexual urge for connection of the soul, for deep pleasure and feeling of protection, nurture and transcendance of the physical body. It is not wrong. The warped collective view of connection, and companionship and community is way unbalanced and rigid.
Even as children we get conditioned to feel love conditionally from our parents, teachers and adults, as that is what they know. Real love is unconditional, no limits, boundaries are beneficial for growth and clarity, but love shouldn’t be the result of being something specific or doing something specific, or even more what relationship or title a person has in relation to you. Someone you just met deserves unconditional love as much as a partner, relative or close friend. Love only has limits when we believe in a lie, which limits its true power and creative and transcending potential. We are all worthy of joy, peace, love and passion in abundance. But we must first question what we have been taught and be prepared to think for ourselves and our choices for what fuels our soul and our best intentions for growth, well-being and fulfilment.
After this above interaction occurred, I changed dramatically, I had realized where I had changed something in me to become more female and submissive, but it was imbalanced to my masculine to protect me and empower me. I decided after that I wanted a relationship but not a normal one and soon after I was getting premonitions of an amazing kiss, I had it every few weeks, like it was happening in real life, I couldn’t see anyone though. I noticed a new friend on facebook not long after this, Jc, a seemingly spiritual guy with mutual friends, I tuned in and there was a massive attraction. I will not tell the whole story but me and Jc met and before we did, we knew each other, not from chatting but on a soul level. We were in a relationship after the second time we met, I was set to go overseas for 6 months, which was part of my spiritual journey and this had thrown a huge spanner in the works, nothing flowed for me to leave. Me and Jc hadn’t even kissed before we were in a relationship, he was very shy and the first time we kissed was after 30 minutes of soul gazing, nothing else existed, I was flowing out so much poetry and we were so in love. But the feeling of resistance and the title what felt like chains to me got in the way. Not long after my dad kicked me out of his place, I had been staying there before heading overseas for 6 months. So kindly Jc offered for me to stay at his, we had only met 5 weeks prior and for me this was a huge rush, I was so freaked out feeling it was going to ruin everything.
I am sad to say but as of yesterday me and him are now extremely close friends, we grew so much the past 6 weeks of our official partnership, I strived to not use terms like girlfriend and boyfriend as I know words hold vibration and I wanted something new, this thing we had, this connection was different. Other worldly, and I have been in love before, even love at first sight. In the past 24 hours after we have gone our separate ways we have gotten even closer without the weight of the status looming over us. We will remain close friends and I am going overseas, the means to leave have showed up just in time. Perhaps once more healing occurs in both of the divine masculine and feminine we could maybe engage in a soul union but we felt that 6 years of experiences passed through us in mere 6 weeks. The immense growth and transformation we have both had and I feel the potential would have been even more without the dense structure and labels of society’s ideal of life and companionship. All my past stuff came up and as it did I learnt where I projected my old view of what the perfect women should be in a relationship, it wasn’t me, it wasn’t real and it most certainly wasn’t sustainable. I was drained and felt unfulfilled, I know all the circumstances unfolded as they should, for me to learn and share this. There was many things at play, things which kept me feeling trapped and drained and stuck in an unnatural flow of being, to think I needed it to connect and unite with another soul. But we don’t.
Right before me and Jc agreed to be a couple I was frustrated, as I was about to go overseas and I didn’t know where I stood, I felt his energy change in preparation for me leaving and I confronted him, I then post on facebook these 11 tips for conscious dating , which I had learned over the past four and a half years of being single and searching for what I was really looking for. He saw it and messaged me about it, we took things virtually to the I love you stage and had only hugged twice and held hands, but a few days later we were on facebook officially a couple and I had a bad and trapping feeling about the title, even though I thought he knew my views, I allowed it and all that was to follow. I wanted infinite and deep soul connection, not mundane and purely physical and emotional responsibility to another and all the dramas that follow that.
If you are single, married, or coupled, ask yourself why are you with someone? What is the connection for? Could you be more fulfilled? Is it within you or is it in the restriction and resistance to an outdated view of connection, intimacy and companionship.
“Real love is not about labels and ownership. It’s about letting the infinite and pure creative force expand without limitations.” – Cynthia Jauch
In a world of labels, critics, definitions, political correctness, diagnosis and major logic it is easy to get stuck in a box, but that is not where we or love belongs. Love is naturally unconditional, why place restrictions on that which is infinite and perfect.
With our titles and explanations, we limit our potential for growth and expansion, for freedom, we have become accustomed to this, through experience from our youth. We can change, we can leap out of the boxes, re define what it means to love and be loved. Not need an ego gratification of an illusion of proof and forever. Love is infinite, people in our lives change. It is good. Learn to trust and love yourself. Than you will not feel trapped and confined by the labels, past energy of our ancestors and the vibration of the labels.
We can choose our essence and our magical life, we don’t need to be owned to feel love, we don’t need to be told we are taken care of, if we have faith we know we always are. Release your insecurity of the need to know for certain and to have someone forever, we are all connected and one.
I have always had plans and ideas to connect people and create fun and exciting get togethers, for like-minded people. As we grow up we crave connection and to fit in, sometimes in fear of rejection we close off or become judgemental, but as group species we require love and community to thrive. We all have our great skills and abilities and coming together with others to share and create is so fulfilling. There are always people needed for volunteering, for different charities, for people to talk to, for our ability to be more in service and humble.
I frequently ask myself how I can make a contribution to my community or a social or global problem, how can many amazing people coming together not achieve greatness and growth. I have started sharing more people with each other through my own contacts and feel a sense of community globally, fortunately I have been able to make some amazing and like-minded friends all over the world. The internet and travel has made this very easy, skyping and facebook, for business and communication. We can all contribute in some way to the groups we are a part of, we all have value to share, either words, actions, knowledge, creative gifts, kind words, an ear to listen, experiences to share.
As I embark on new journeys to connect more people globally and see a vision of a positive and united world, the focus on connection, family, health and community is so strong. It is natural within my star signs to have this drive to connect others and to create platforms for people to connect and grow together. For me I am doing this through online programs, community groups, hugs events, global connections and collaborations, sharing with people, connecting people, sharing my story, knowledge and experience, services for growth, contributing to other causes, volunteering and donations. We all have so much to offer and when we allow ourselves to be present to what we can give and not just what we receive, our capacity to receive grows, we feel gratitude and we can feel humble and fulfilled in new ways.
As the world gets more challenging with Laws, Separation of people and nations, Judgement and Stigma, we each hold a responsibility for our future, our youth and those of the future generations. If we are not part of the solution, we become part of the problem. Whatever is close to your heart, reach out to it, align to a path of passion, conviction, making a difference, connection and peace.
If you are not doing something already to contribute to a community, either online or in person, near or far, I encourage it, to feel connected. So many studies have shown that when we join a group of people to make a difference, help the less fortunate, create a movement, do something meaningful together, it raises happiness, connection and collectively makes a great impact socially and globally. We will also feel more fulfilled and a sense of purpose and meaning in our lives, we can create greater bonds with people and this lowers the chance of burn out, illness, mental health challenges and overall improves the quality of life. Have a look online for things in your area, facebook groups or meetups for like-minded people getting together to make the difference you are passionate about, allowing you to grow your skills, feel connected and like you are contributing to a legacy or greater tomorrow. I also have some communities below that I recommend if you are interested.
Learning: What does this word mean to you? School? University? Perhaps self study?
We do not get taught how to learn, only what to remember in school, for us to get a job and or have more study where we are told what to remember and how to behave. Has learning lost it’s spark, where knowledge becomes meaningless and just a thing to force your brain to retain to get a piece of paper? If so it is a sad truth. But I know there is a better way.
Learning can be joyous, from experience comes wisdom and this moulds marvellous creations and infinite expansion. We have an untapped abilty to be amazing beings of growth, innovation and tremendous potential but we all have our own unique genius and way of learning. Some people prefer visual, some kinesthetic (touch), some audio. As we allow ourselves to learn things with a method and process to easily retain the information and knowledge we require for a fulfilling life and achieving our goals and desires, learning becomes so much fun.
I recall hating school, I was bored and I spoke and got in trouble, my body and soul responding to this with physical illness in which I was accused at the time of being a hypercondriac as my symptoms and actions did not match up, my mum didn’t know what to do with me. I left school just before I turned 15, as 15 was the legal age. Barely completing grade 8 and since my self education and learning has sky rocketed, I fell in love with learning and using my skills and unique essence to have more learning faster, from reading, writing, course creation, workshops and much more. My knowledge, language, written and math skills far surpass my siblings who have completed all their schooling years and some even uni or college. For my love of learning and not just memorizing what I am told, has infinite potential, I am not capped at what others decide or how others choose to judge or critic my ability to know or use information.
We each hold the keys for our mind and their potential and if we have kids we have choices of how to allow them to grow and flourish in their lives and education. What and how is the most beneficial way to learn? In this fast paced digital age there is so much information and technology at our fingertips to be able to achieve so much and our options seem so much wider, so why are our education institutes more limited? in resources? in processes? In life? In passion? We can change this. It all starts with us. Changing our own views on what is acceptable and using the tools to learn for ourselves, using our experiences to learn wisdom and having more empowerment in how we are educated.
Select a new subject to study and choose for the learning to be fun and I suggest the below 5 tips to help with this:
Know your learning style, Audio, Digital, Visual or Kinesthetic (Touch and Hands on)
Use something you like doing with your learning i.e listening to your fav music.
Pick a subject you love.
Get a friend or loved one involved to learn with you.
Set your mind to banish the negative view of learning from whatever negative experience you had. it isn’t about remembering, it is about enjoying the journey to new understanding for life and experience.
As we each shift our view of what education and learning can be we open up the collective view of our own inner potential to grow and excel in life, experience and choice. We are all full of untapped wisdom and potential. I encourage you today to let it shine.
To me self love is about removing all the thoughts, feelings, words and actions which are unloving towards ourselves. This is a process, but an extremely important one. When we are unconsciously feeling unworthy and unloved by us or by others, we create sabotage and punishment for ourselves. Leaving us feeling lonely, abandoned and unworthy of the things we deserve and desire. But we have put ourselves there. Yes, our society does not educate us to embrace our individuality, in fact it suppresses our nifty quirks and gifts, all to be the same for a future of feeling enslaved by a system and grabbing at little things to create joy and fulfilment, easily addicted to that little time we feel love, or joy and then when it is gone, we crumble, not having a solid pillar of inner love for us, which is so important for our growth, fulfilment and connections in life.
On my own journey I have discovered that this inner feeling of unworthiness started when I was ever so young, from memories of childhood and than in school. It is easy to blame the situations but I know I am responsible for creating the me and the life I desire. So it comes down to choosing to release the pain and thoughts of the past. To become more aware of where I am not doing things which are for my highest good and committing to me to change and grow through the challenges and hurt.
We really do set the bar for how others will treat us and if you reflect on your thoughts, words and actions for you, then you will see where this is how others are treating you. We are so worthy of unconditional love and respect, the feeling of worth we felt as little babies. We have truly infinite potentials and when we show up present to see, forgive, love and nurture ourselves, all around us transforms. My self love journey has not been easy though, as the best things never are always easy. On my path I have made sacrifices, learnt discipline and had many nights crying, healing my wounds from the past, letting the shadows of myself rise and fall away, creating actions and commitment to be more true to my heart and live in a way that nurtures me and achieves the things I desire. To allow myself to feel supported, loved, worthy and my expression important and honored.
Here is a video from my YouTube Channel on Self Love:
After walking a path of putting everyone else first and making myself sick to be accepted by others, to put on a brave face and be tough and be friendly all the time, do what everyone wanted, be what everyone wanted, I could only do it so long before my world came crumbling down in a heap, crying, sick and alone not knowing who to call, feeling like I was unworthy of this life, like who was I to live, to breath, to do what I wanted, but in those moments I surrendered and felt something beyond me ease my pain, I had words of encouragement from within me, nurturing me, telling me what I would want another to say. These moments in my life were to this day some of the most profound. I felt inner strength, courage, and a desire and mission to share, to love myself deeply and to be an example of love that others can hold for themselves.
When we feel loved and appreciated we excel at everything, like when you fall in love, you are on a high, on cloud nine, a cocktail of happy hormones are released in your mind and you feel unstoppable. So I say learn to fall in love with you, flaws and all, than your world will have no choice but to follow suit.
A great mentor once told me of a person who changed their life by saying they met someone who loved themselves so much it gave them permission to do the same. This is so true, the more we treat ourselves with love and respect, in a gentle and nurturing way, with our thoughts, words, actions and the things we choose to allow in our world, the greater gift we can give and share with others. The best leaders, lead by example, people follow authentic people, they can trust, if you see someone walking their talk you don’t need to question them or what they do or say, their lives become a testament to what can be achieved and what wisdom they have gained from experience in life.
Take our masks off, let ourselves be free, to see our real selves, to heal the past, to forgive deeply for how we have hurt ourselves, to support our inner child and find integration and balance in ourselves, to flow with lifes waves and receive all the abundance we deserve.
So I created the Self Loved Up 21 day online program to share this with others, for those it resonates with. To guide, encourage, promote and share how self love will be a catalyst for so much more in life, feeling supported, empowered and ready to achieve your dreams, smash barriers and grow daily to be your truest potential.
21 days of activities, videos, a community of other self love warriors, coming together to share, grow and support one another on removing those things in our way of feeling deep self love, acceptance and purpose, to be the best version of ourselves we can be.
