Change

Like nature – we shift, we morph, we change into whatever shape the wind and water forms us into. Molding us, transforming us, purifying us. A consistent flow and cycle of change and adaptation. Every curve, every inch. Everything touched, nothing left undone.

The only consistent thing in this world is that everything changes.

I am unable to imagine a more pristine time than right now, with everything going on in the world, for us to be able to redesign, recreate, adjust, and tweak the world, our ideals, and the way we go about our day to day life. The rug underneath all of our feet has been moved, and we are seeing all the dust, dirt, unfinished business, old bad habits, and harmful things we either intentionally put under the rug, or did so not realizing.

So many layers and levels across all platforms that need to be addressed and shifted so we can move forward into a new and better version.

I see it happening. All around me. I see the right questions being asked leading to the right answers. I see people taking action where action needs to be taken. I see people learning and evolving and wanting to step up and be a better version, their best version. So many learning curves. So much adaptation its quiet beautiful when we are able to step back and look from a birds eye view.

We are all on different levels. Moving through whichever area of our life is currently presenting itself in front us and learning how to navigate in new ways to produce new and desired solutions.

A massive upheaval which I do truly believe we will all be able to look back on and see just how much incredibly positive change occurred amongst the chaos.

When we choose to see the beauty within a disaster, it is the beauty we end up seeing.

Lifes Guidance System

Resistance. Stress. Anxiety. Struggle. Anger. Sorrow. Frustration. Hurt. Worry.

These are our signs to stop – and pay attention.

Just like the stop signs we see every day while driving…. it, along with these emotions, are there for our protection.

They come from our intuition. That gut feeling we get, but usually don’t follow. Our intuition guides us to the path with least resistance. Aka…less struggle, more flow and joy.

So, I encourage you the next time you are trying to do something and for whatever reason it is just not happening at all and it is an incredible struggle to do what it is you are wanting to do…see it as your sign, and stop. Completely stop and either go do something else…or just sit. And wait. And watch.

Watch your mind go from crazy to more relaxed.

And watch the solution present itself. Sometimes right away. Sometimes later in the day or the following day.

Resistance of what is creates more resistance. The more we try and force something…the farther away we push it. Let go, and let it be. Even forget about it for awhile. This allows the energy from yourself and whatever it is you’re trying to do flow freely again and the solution will be able to fix itself with utter ease.

I feel we all kind of really wish there was an easy button for life or a written out step by step guide on how to live an incredibly fulfilled joyful life.

Well….there kind of is.

It’s our intuition.

It literally guides us moment by moment. Letting us know if we are going in the wrong direction or if what we are doing is aligned.

The only problem is we have gotten really good at ignoring it and instead, doing what we think we should be doing or what society tells us to do.

We’ve become stuck on ‘thinking’ instead of feeling.

Thinking usually leads us in the opposite direction. Feeling tells us exactly what we need to live joyously.

But wait!…it’s too vulnerable and feminine to feel.

No.

That’s society and your ‘thinking mind’ talking. It is actually extremely powerful to be able to understand the connection between feeling and doing. And those times you come across someone who has figured this completely out, they are actually kind of intimidating. Not in a threatened way, but in a wow, they seem to have a really good grasp on this living thing.

One day….this will be taught in schools. Maybe it does in some already.

I know statistics and complex chemical equations come into play in the lives of many…but understanding the basic foundation of how to live in the bodies we are in…and in a way that helps us thrive and live out life the best way possible….I feel that should come first.

Understanding we have a built in guide that lets us know the direction of most joy, most peace, most ease….man, I wish I would have known that earlier!

– Struggle becomes almost non-existent. ( Almost because everything has an opposite. We can’t have peace without chaos)

– Joy and ease of living become the normal way of being. Not just an occasional awesome day or anticipation build up for a vacation.

We have forgotten the importance of listening to our intuition. It’s been put on the back burner.

Let’s remember what it feels like to follow it. To follow the joy.

The joy that this life is really all about.

A Year of Transformation

The year of May 2017 to May 2018, I was guided through a transformation I will never forget.

Not so much in the way of changing who I am however….but in bringing back to life and remembering the joyous and full of life person I once was. The person I truly am; my authentic self. The one I had left behind in an attempt to fit in.

I have brought light back into all of the dreams I buried. I have spoken all of the thoughts I once felt I should hold back. I have cried all of the tears that needed crying. I have screamed the words that needed to be heard. I have felt the emotions I bundled up inside.  I laughed for all of the times that I had held back.

I have broken through so many of the barriers, boundaries, and limitations that I once put in place because of a world that told me I should.

And damn does it feel good!!!

I have always known I was different from those around me. My thoughts were a little more eccentric. My feelings were way deeper. My need for down time, alone time, and time to decompress was always very high. I could easily pick up on the feelings and emotions of those around me.

People would say I was dreaming too big, my thoughts weren’t realistic, and/or I needed to grow up.

I now find immense pride and joy in my uniqueness. And I know I am certainly not the only one who has grown up in a world feeling like we didn’t fit in.

Here is my viewpoint on it these days as I now feel even more awakened than before.

Those of us who feel like the outcasts, who’s opinions get shut down, who’s wants and needs seem to always get confined into a little box that gets thrown away, who get overwhelmed and feel pressure coming at them in every direction…..

We are here to help change this world into a better place.

In order to do that, we need to think different, act different, and just be completely different from everyone else.

So of course we are going to catch hell for it!

But, I have noticed the more I realize this great gift…the more I welcome the criticism, the ‘no’s’, the ‘you can’ts’, the looks of disappointment or astonishment. They all just fuel my fire.

This past year has brought with it some intense inner work which brought some intense inner peace.

And from what I can tell…..the more true and authentic I become the more fun I have!!! It is important to grow up and be responsible yes, but it is even more important to not loose that inner child. The wild, crazy, adventurous piece of us that just wants to have fun.

 I attract better people into my life. Like-minded crazy individuals with so much passion and purpose. True deep meaningful connections that create wonderful memories.

Here are some of the changes I have made. This is just a short list as it would take me forever to write them all, but these are the biggest ones.

  • My mindset. I am grateful. I look for the positive. I believe anything I will ever need is already inside of me. It always has been, and always will be. Its just a matter of tapping into it. Our cells have the words of the universe imprinted in them. Our gut and intuition are what leads us.
  • My diet. I hate that word but there it is. If you don’t know me well enough yet, I discourage dieting ( as well as calorie counting ). There is no quick fix, it leaves us feeling deprived. Food is everything. We are what we eat. We are given one body, respecting it and understanding its limitations as well as its ability to thrive allows it to give us the best life possible.
  • My values & boundaries. I got really clear on what I value. What I want to value. And what I absolutely am not okay with.  And then I live accordingly. If something doesn’t match up with my value or pushes past a boundary. I speak up…. or I let go of it.
  • I make sure my words line up with my actions. If I say I am going to do something. I do it. If I don’t want to do something or know it is not in my best interest, I say no to it.
  • I have fine tuned my relationships. I have worked hard to eliminate negative influences in my life and increase positive ones. I choose friendships that are meaningful and authentic. Ones that inspire me and fuel me to continue to be and do my best.
  • Self care.  Oh how critical self care is. Especially for those of us who are Highly Sensitive People. ( no this does not mean I cry all the time and get upset over everything. However, it is important to learn and listen to and understand the subtle signs of our bodies ) Highly Sensitive People are able to feel more and pick up on energies and vibrations more than others. We embody these energies from people and everything around us and therefore need to have time to decompress and reground ourselves.

This past year I have made more changes than ever. I have seen some incredible highs as well as some incredible lows. I have learned to listen to and trust my gut. I have learned to respect myself and demand respect from others. I have learned how to not only follow my dreams but how to make them reality.  I have reminded myself that we are here on this planet, in this universe, to simply have fun and to immensely enjoy the world around us. To help each other through our journeys. We all learn as we go. No reason to make it harder on each other.

If there is something we don’t like…we have complete control over changing it. Everything is a choice, staying somewhere we don’t like, doing something we don’t like….it’s all a choice. It takes change and struggle to get something different, yes, but it’s better than continuing on doing something that makes life even harder and more  difficult than it already is.

One more awesome thing I have gotten out of this year of transformation…..

I know its just the beginning.

And there is so much more. So much more greatness, so many more amazing people, so many more wonderful authentic connections, so many more moments of realizations to come.

My passion, my purpose, my goal is to help as many people as I can re-illuminate that light that is inside them.

If that is something you’re interested in….if a year of transformation is something you are looking for, if your gut is saying ‘yes this is me!’, ‘yes I relate!’….. now is the time to start thinking about making some changes to become more authentic to yourself.

To re illuminate the light that’s inside of you.

Now is the time in our world when we need to be doing this if we aren’t already. It is imperative that we make shifts and changes to re illuminate our world and bring it back into balance.

WE are the ones leading the way, and re creating the world in which we want to live in.

These kinds of transformations are best done with someone who has already been through the process themselves and can offer space, time, and lived knowledge as you work through it all yourself.

May this next year be one of magnificent positive transformation.
