We face many challenges, conflicts and situations in our life. All of these are opportunities for us to grow. Often we are so busy fighting, resisting and trying to control what is going on that we lose perspective and end up missing the blessing.

10635914_864680473590179_2416698303421275303_nSo many of us are so good at giving, at helping others, at supporting and at caring. However this can be a way of controlling and keeping our own vulnerability hidden. The ability to receive is far harder than the ability to give. How open are you to receiving compliments, gifts, help, support, guidance, love, feedback.

This is for many of us a stretch and a lesson in our own personal growth.

It's also critical that we don't view giving and receiving as a quid pro quo game. That means we don't try and balance the scales each time we receive. When we view giving and receiving as transactions that need to be balanced against each other we miss the abundance that the Universe has for us.

So for today be open to receive. It is safe. You deserve it.

10915176_866815173376709_4104930964361402383_nTrust is such a difficult concept and we use it as a benchmark in our relationships, environments and choices we make. Choosing to trust empowers you to be make to make better choices as the choice is not from a place of fear and protection but from a place of true personal power.

This is not saying trust blindly or be naiive about those people that may hurt you but more about choosing to trust yourself in the situation. Trust your guidance, your intuition, your knowing. This is the source if true power.

Our relationship of trusting ourselves impacts the way we relate with others in the world.

Learn to trust yourself. You have all the answers and support you need.

We live in a society that judges selfishness yet it is the very thing needed to help heal ourselves.

10460713_867880959936797_7387232919375072924_nBefore I get lynched let me help clear up what I mean by selfish. I am not referring to self - absorption where you only care for yourself at the detriment of others. By selfish I am referring to taking care of yourself first so that you are able to give to others from a place of self - love and care. The opposite extreme to self - absorption is selfless - ness. This is where we are so busy taking care of everyone else we put ourselves last leading to burn out, guilt, resentment and never feeling good enough.

Putting yourself and your needs first, loving yourself enough to take care of yourself so that you are fueled by love, joy and peace as you take care of others is not selfish it is vital to living a healthy life...

So go ahead, today say no and do something for yourself first. Love yourself first. Be selfish.

10897902_869969006394659_8726647209957382820_nWhen we choose to operate from a place of Love, the universe responds with more love. So many of us make choices based on fear, mistrust, insecurity, control, revenge, justification even hatred.

I long for a life and a society that can make love the core driver of interactions.

If we can learn to lead with love, we could love ourselves more, we could be less judgemental, we could treat others with kindness, we could heal our lives. Even when in pain, even when you been hurt, even when you need to improve your boundaries make love the core.

10968406_870870542971172_293712546282027915_nAcceptance is the key to personal power, growth, change, forgiveness and freedom.

Acceptance is not approving, condoning or even understanding. It is the ability to be present to reality and to see things, events and people as they are.
It is what it is .... not right, not wrong .... just it is what it is.

So many of us are holding onto past events, pain and hurt because what happened was wrong or not fair or bad. Acceptance doesn't take that away it just allows us to release the hold that this pain has on us and start to heal.

What are you fighting? What do you need to just accept so that you can free yourself to move on?

10991157_872951892763037_1809750847809665508_nWe invest so much energy in trying to control our lives. We think that we are able to limit our fear, vulnerability and risk of getting hurt by always being in control. The reality is the we invest a lot of time and energy fighting. Fighting to make things right, fighting to make things fair. Working so hard to make things the way we think they should be.

In this way we rob ourselves of the joy of the moment, of the opportunities that present themselves to us. To the magic of this life.
The only thing we can control is our response to life and to the world. The rest is not our problem :).

Learning to trust life and ourselves and the wisdom that comes from our soul is key to a joy if peace, love and joy.

No matter how much you want to be, you are not in control.

A lesson I continue to learn daily 🙂

11001875_875018302556396_9107884893008087371_nWhen we have loved, hurt, lost, invested, cared, hated, felt trauma etc ..... we leave a piece of ourselves with that person, time and or event. Energetically we can then find ourselves scattered and not able to focus and enjoy the present moment.

Commanding our spirit to return to us allows us to come back to the place of peace and wholeness. This does not change the memories, it changes the present.

Where is your spirit? Spend some time in quiet and call it back cutting the energetic ties that no longer serve your joy.

Light a candle and pray for love and light to bring you back to your wholeness.

10995850_875759255815634_4882883459522320395_nHow often do you swallow your words, hold back your opinions, hide your needs, squash your emotions?

A key part if personal growth and empowerment is permission to speak your truth, say what you think, feel, want and value ...... unapologetically.
The throat is a conduit to aligning our hearts with our minds. It allows us to express our will. It allows us to make an impact. Do you long to be heard? Speak up .... it's ok. The world needs your perspective to be felt and heard.

Take note how you speak is also your responsibility so how you speak your truth will most definitely impact the response you get .... but from today give yourself permission to allow your inner voice to be expressed.

11024621_876991029025790_2729280339936449020_nWhat fear is holding you back from your joy?

The fear of failure?
The fear of success?
The fear of being laughed at?
The fear of not being liked?
The fear of being hurt?
The fear of causing pain?
The fear of what people will think of you?
The fear of doing things wrong?
The fear of being alone?
The fear of your vulnerability?
The fear of being taken advantage of?
Etc etc etc

Fear is the ego's way of trying to get you to remain the same. If we succumb to the fear we never grow.

It is ridiculous to say don't be scared, don't have the fear - we all do. Growth is about embracing your fear and no longer letting it control your choices by stepping into the COURAGE of your Soul.

Make friends with your fear. Know it's just information. Let go of letting the fear control you.

The best way to let fear stop controlling you is to face it full on.

Here's to your courage 🙂

Blessings
