L3 Challenge Day #6: Take risks

#AllWomenChallenge

#Challenge6: Take risks

1- #JustForToday: I will Visualize who I want to be.
Who would your ultimate self be.

2- #JustForToday: I will Calm down mind chatter.
“Just for today , I will not take anything personally. I will control my mind instead of it controlling me. I will be worry free and I will turn my negatives into positives.”

3- #JustForToday: I will Commit.
Push this little further now. Commit to doing 2 things that bring you closer to your higher self.

4- #JustForToday: I will Do something for myself.
Do something that makes you feel happy. This helps us reconnect with ourselves. And in return helps us reconnect with the higher beings we are.

5- #JustForToday: I will Think as if no one is coming to save me.
Take back your power.

6- #JustForToday: I will take a risk.
Taking risks is a skill. And a true leader is in constant search of mastering it. They understand that it’s essential for the growth of any project or goal, it’s that drop, a.k.a. that risk, that institutes the tipping point of Success . They master it by calculating and acting on them. It’s hard sometimes because fear comes creeping in, trying to discredit the incredible beings we are and the incredible powers we posses. Just for today take a risk. Weither it is responding and or exploring certain curiosities, expressing concerns that have been weighing your heart or simply trying something new. The results might not be the ones you expect and that is ok because that’s how we learn. Through exploration we start to understand what we want, what we don’t want, how we want it and what we are prepared to give or to loss to certain experiences. This takes us even deeper in the finding out who we are and the risks we choose to make gets us close to the person we want to be ❤ So just for today take a risk, have fun and reflect on your experience. 

L3 Challenge Day 5: Think as if no one is coming to save you..

#AllWomenChallenge

#Challenge5: Think as if no one is coming to save you.

1-#JustForToday: Visualize who you want to be.
If you are still having trouble with this, It’s ok, give yourself an alter ego Whatever empowers your Being. A friend calls herself Sasha Fierce!

2- #JustForToday: Calm down mind chatter.
This takes practice just remember that practice makes perfect. There is only two more days to go.

3- #JustForToday: Commit.
Be the example.

4- #JustForToday: Do something for yourself.
Remember to give some time for yourself, you deserve it.

5- #JustForToday: Think as if no one is coming to save you.
We are not here to be saved. Having this mind set gives us the opportunity to take back our power, to be our own hero. We are all connected but ultimately the best thing we can do for ourselves is believe in ourselves. Xx

L3 Challenge Day #3: Commit

#AllWomenChallenge

#Commit #BabyShower #DanBarnes #GardenParty #Day3

#Challenge3: Commit

1- #JustForToday: Visualize the person you want to be.
If you still have trouble with this brake it down. Think of what kind of daughter, son, entrepreneur, teacher, mother, Lover, the kind of boss you want to be or become. Your highest self is the person that make you feel the happiest inside.

2- #JustForToday: Monitor mind chatter.
Thoughts are like seeds planted in the mind. We decide the kind of fertilizer we use. When something is repeated long enough it becomes, something psychologist like to say, the self fulling prophecy. If we constantly bombard our mind with unrealistic thoughts of negativity we self sabotage ourself. We bring our vibrational level down and in consequence attract these things or misfortune. Misfortune is in the eye of the beholder. When your better able to control your mind you’ll be able to see and even transforme misfortunes into opportunity.

3- #JustForToday: Commit
Its easy to get distracted and never finish any projects or goals we set out. A leader is able to set himself or herself a mission and plan accordingly. They do not wait around for anyone to assign them one either. They challenge themselves constantly and stick to it. This helps them build confidence, determination and integrity. Just for today set yourself a goal. The smaller the better. It could be as simple as doing the laundry. Committing to go to that yoga class. Making someone smile. Making that rude barista at your usual coffee shop feel amazing and appreciated. Commit to just one thing today and stick to it. Importantly be proud when you’ve achieved it. I even encourage you to start recording them so as to go back and remind yourself of your achievements.

“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” Eleanor Roosevelt

Awakening the leader inside you

I’ve been requested to write about leadership this week by an incredible soul to help her on her journey. Throughout my blogs, I have been writting about the importance of breaking down foundations in order to reprogramme the concious and unconcious brainwashings. After a challenging week, I realize now that I have been doing so to awaken the leader in myself and as a result, the incredible leaders, I am convinced, that are inside every single one of us. I am dedicating this whole week and as well issuing a challenge to all my entrepreneurs here at AllWomen, Natali Lukin, Mareta Lukin, Maggiee Ryan, Lee-Anna Holder, Gaela Azi, Stefanie Tan, Christina Papavasiliou, to AllWomen readers, to anyone and everyone facing all kinds of challenges, to Myself, more importantly to my beautiful niece, and all future generations.

We owe it to ourselves and more importantly to our future to take responsibility for our actions. What’s a leader to me? Someone who is living to there highest potential. What is our highest potential to me? It is who we are dedicated to be at all times. Regardless of the trials, or tests put in our paths, it is time to rise up from our slumber.

For the next 7 days, I will provided you with one exercise that I’ve found to be the most influential to me in how to rise up to these challenges. I’ve learned them from great Leaders and guides such as John C. Maxwell and Eckhart Tolle. These exercises will be complementing each other throughout the week.

#Challenge1;

#JustForToday: Visualize the person you want to be.

Tonight picture yourself as the ultimate human being you’d like to become. The one that can overcome any challenges. The one that has risen up and is now giving back. Strip away all limitation. See that hero inside of you. Do this every morning for the next 7 days and as many times as you can throughout the day.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for change, I’m ready for creating a movement and would love to have you all by my side. Tag everyone you want to challenge and/or awaken the leader within or share it on your page ❤

You All are incredible, it’s time to recognize it. Have a great and inspiring week

Always Love

Blog 14; “You cant give to Others what you do not have”

Blog 14

#Vibration #Frequency #Words #Power #Magic #TheBeatles

#Love

“You can’t give to others what you don’t have.”

All you need is Love.

Last week we talked about one of two emotions that run our decision making, fear. This week we’ll talk about its opposite, which is Love. Love in its purest form, is an incredible emotion to live by. At its purest form, love raises one’s vibration to a whole other level and a lot of times a simple acknowledgement of the person’s being is all it takes.

What do I mean by raising one’s vibration? What are vibrations? Ultimately, what I’ve come to understand is that invisible ripples we use to interact with the world are caused by energy. The height, length and amount of the ripples determine the frequency we run by. This basically runs our engines. Have you ever noticed how coffee just doesn’t cut it some days but a sincere kind and motivational word from people we love and respect, boosts us to a whole new magnitude? Tell a child how amazing he is today and see how much energy that gives him. Love is the highest vibrational emotion of them all and the root of all emotions as such. The power it has when its given freely and without attachment, which is the purest of its kind (will elaborate that statement in later blogs), has the power to move mountains obstructing our goals, heals what some would call incurable diseases and gives hope in situations that seem hopeless. It ultimately makes us feel good about ourselves and everyone deserves to feel that way regardless of their past. Each one of us is just as important as the next and deserves to be treated as such. Always try and give the benefit of the doubt. We all deserve that much. A trick John C. Maxwell reminded me of recently.

Again, everything is in balance. “You can’t give to others what you don’t have”. If you don’t have love for yourself, it will be hard to give it to others. Take the time to look at yourself in the mirror, what are the first thoughts that come to mind? Are they rooted out of love? If they are not, make it so. Always remember, you deserve your own love as much as the next.

A coworker once asked me if I believed in magic. Yes, absolutely, words are magic. They have the power to give wings and let someone sore or crush them to dust. We decide the kind of magic it will be.

Just for this week, give everyone you meet the self-esteem booster they deserve and see the magic of its ripple come back to you 😉.

and of course #AlwaysLove

Blog 8; What it’s all about

Blog8;

Today’s blog will begin with what this blog is about. As most, if not all, of you already know, for the last 7 years, give or take, I was a complete mess and with no idea as to why. Keeping myself busy with work, projects, school, training, dead end relationships, both the romantic and not, and petty problems, to name a few, thinking that awkward feeling of being alone with myself would eventually go away. Thinking like, I’m sure, most of you, the more I have on my plat the better because that’s what capitalism teaches us and the issues we should be facing are generously postponed. I only recently thought myself how to look internally, as opposed to externally, for answers and that, in it self, changed my life. I faced demons I didn’t know existed. I realized I was not my true authentic self but a vulnerable sponge, soaking up what I believed needed to be soaked up based on socially, culturally and religiously constructed views. Restricting myself from experiences that would have or could have brought me closer to my true self or the opposite, pursuing experiences that I believed were important to pursue based on these elements and a heavy price, that of integrity. Everything that kept me in the dark was finally being put to light and the relationship I had lost with myself was slowly blooming again despite the dark heavy mud.

I couldn’t recognize it then, but the teachers and guides I’ve encountered and the lessons I’ve learned were blessings in disguises. This blog is to remind myself how far I’ve come and to look back at what I’ve learned and On my journey I have encountered incredible people whom, like how once I did, haven’t yet realize how incredible they are and what kind of light lies within. That immensely powerful and beautiful light that lies inside all of us. With that said I’m also writing this blog for anyone who’s ever felt lost or confused at any point of their lives. I hope these blogs help you as much as they are helping me.

I will end this blog today with this; It always gets better. The dark isn’t a scary place and it never has to be faced alone. We are all connected somehow.

Can’t wait to write to you Beautiful and Incredible Souls next week
Have a Beautiful Night

Blog 7; conscious choice; Keeping your blood flowing.

Blog7

What a day we’ve had. Perfect weather and timing for the next conscious choice; Keeping your blood flowing.

Most cringe when they hear the word “exercise” because they think of sweating, lifting weights, treadmills, _____ <–ill just leave this space blank… A mistake sum people make is that they think they need to be at a gym or take a particular class to be exercising and then its postponed. Right? Until you have time? 😉 Its an amazing first step, the intention is being put out there so your body is already responding to the attempts. Ideas are energies that simply need sustaining.
In reality anything can be turned into an exercise. Siting, walking, standing, they are all exercises, you just need to recognize it as such. The idea of exercise is more then loosing weight. Its getting the blood flowing, strengthening your muscles and reducing stress all in purpose to make your body be a better channel for information coming in and, of course, to get rid of toxins.
What do i mean by this;
When your sitting down or standing up be mindful of your posture. Is your spin elongated. My mom hears this allllll the time. Keep your back straight. Engage your abs. By doing so your not collapsing weight onto your lower spin. With a little imagination you can literally turn anything into an exercise and the conscious effort the brain needs to go threw is workout in itself. If your body is too busy caring for injuries it might be harder for it to concentrate on anything else.
Something else I would recommend is taking walks outside. The simple act of being outside in nature is therapeutic. Walking has a way of getting rid of mind chatter too.

In essence, anything that gets you moving and releases stress by the temporary detachment from worries, will help you see things clearer. I hope these has helped you so far in your journey. Feel free to share and spread the love. Have a Beautiful and Pleasant day  We will meet again!
& Always Love !!

Blog 6; Healty choices; Drugs

Blog 6

Hello all you Beautiful and Strong Souls. We are still on; making conscious healthy choices to better the transferability of information.

As I was saying, we are sensory beings. We respond to different stimuli in order to send, receive and process information. The information we intake can be of high quality or low quality, depending on what’s going on on the inside. I can talk about food but that is not what I want to focus on today. But I will leave you with this; the choices we make with the foods we eat are important but how we think and react to those foods are far greater.

With that said lets focus on drugs. As most of you know, drugs are substances that affect the brain by altering or interfering with the way it communicates with the rest of the body and external world. Im not writing this blog today to say drugs are bad, on the contrary, I believe heathy and conscious use or experimentation of certain drugs can help shed some light on particular subjects. Not that I don’t believe it can’t be done without.

My number one rule for doing any drug (I would even go to the extent of coffee). Is make sure you are in a safe environment with people you love and trust. If your uncomfortable or fearful in your environment and you intake something that will overstimulate these emotions, you might get a disturbing experience called a bad trip. The name says it all. Its not fun. The same can be said for coffee. If your in a stressful environment and you’ve had one too many coffees don’t expect to respond as well as you would in a neutral stay of mind. If your about to give a meeting or teach a class or need to make important decisions, try as much as possible, to take into consideration what substances you intake because this will affect your decision making.

BE RESPONSIBLE. Especially to the young souls out there that are going to have there first Beer or first cocktail. Take it easy. Start learning your limits. Do you really need to take 4 shots of tequila? If you do, do you know how that will affect your body? If your going to be experimenting, experiment wisely. Listen to your gut metaphorically and literally. And never let anyone make you feel like you have to do anything you don’t want to. If your not sure best you don’t do it.

Get information. Before you do anything you’ve never done, ask questions. Do some research. Get different opinions. Get different perspective.

Any drug you decide to take, whether its hard drugs or soft, will have an impact on the quality of information you will be receiving and therefore have an impact on the decision you will be making. Just be conscious about it. And if after that you’ve decided you still want to try, have fun. Life is about experiences, learn what you need to learn and no regrets. Life is too short for regrets 😉

Goodnight
& Always Love

Blog 5; Conscious choices: Day 1; Mind chatter

Blog 5

Good morning you Beautiful and Strong Souls. The next couple of days will be about making conscious healthy choices.

Your body is your channel for all kinds of information. We are vibrational beings, meaning we respond to the vibrations of many different stimuli every second so to transform them into the required information for the best possible response at the best possible moment. The choices we make facilitate or hinder the transferability and the quality of the information. So try as much as possible to be mindful of what you do and the substances you intake on a daily basis, particularly when important decisions are being made.Today I will be concentrating on mind chatter

Calm down the mind chatter:

This one is the most important of them all. Your mind is a beautiful organism but importantly an incredible machine and more so, tool. This is where decision makings are made and executions take place. Try and pay as much attention, if not more, to how your mind works and how it responds to your environment as you do anything else in your life. Remember you should be in control of your thoughts not have them control your behaviour and you. Choose to stop the addictive patterns and behaviours now. An effective tool is Meditation. My friends who know me well know I say this often but only because it truly is the best kind of tool 😉. A bit hard in the beginning but like any knew habit practice makes perfect
-Start with the amount of time you feel is right for you. Whether its 30 seconds to a min to 5 min to an hour the important part is when you’ve decided, Commit.
-If you can run and hide somewhere calm, where you will not be bothered, do it. Even if it’s in the bathroom! If you can’t that’s fine too, the only difference is that you might have to switch your attention internally and externally until the time is up.
-Try and concentrate on your breathing. Pay close attention to the inhale. To the freshness of the air, to the path it takes. To your lungs, how it expands and retracts. Pay attention to your heart beat. If you can, go even deeper, go to a cellular level. Feel your cells harmoniously interacting with each other. If in your body they aren’t harmonious send them all love 🙂 Try and calm your heart beat or just observe it. Observe which ever part of the body you’d like.

Congratulations you’ve calm down the mind chatter 😉 Even if it was for only 10 second. That is still 10 second your body profited from clear cut uninterrupted peace. When you have reached a comfort zone with the amount you have chosen, increase it progressively  as much and as soon as you can.

This could be done anywhere. Take it upon yourselves to apply it daily and more often then not in a calm environment. Add to your daily routine like you would eating or brushing your teeth. This is a fantastic tool to calm stress and/or anxiety and to increase the awareness of your body. By calming down stress, the susceptibility of information flow, awareness and quality are incredibly increased. In addition, by increasing body awareness you strengthen the communication bonds between your body and you. Your body is your gateway to peace and happiness ‪#‎Honor‬ and ‪#‎Respect‬ it

There are tons of variations of meditation. Feel free to research the one that works best for you or feel free to ask me as many questions you need. YouTube is my greatest ally in my mission towards taking back the control panels of my mind.

With that said, have a Beautiful and Amazing Day
& Always LoVe

Blog 4; How incredible you are

Blog 4

Happy Sunday all you Beautiful and exquisitely Strong Souls And Happy‪#‎WomensDay‬. Today I dedicate this blog just to that. To all the beautiful and wonderful women that I have encountered and whom inspired me to be the incredible person I am today. This will be honoured by teaching AllWomen how to love themselves and by recognizing 3 outstanding women in my life right now.

Sometimes in life we are so busy sending everyone else love and reminding everyone else how special they are. With the help of vast residual energies and the collective consciousness of pre-conceived ideas and/or beliefs, we forget to stop and thank ourselves and remind ourselves just how beautiful and incredible we are.

These are awesome tricks that helped and are still helping me threw dark times;
The most effective one is sending love. Sending love is important but First: Start by sending love to yourself, from there it will radiate onto others. We are not here living life to teach others how to love us. We are here to learn to love ourselves authentically and unconditionally. Visualize pure white light radiating from the center of your chest and let that light embody you. Imagine it being the physical aspect of unconditional love. How do you feel? What areas of the body or your life are in need of more love? Or look at yourself in the mirror and only say things that make your heart blossom with gratitude.

Second: Be kind to yourself. Always forgive yourself no matter how small or big the dilemma. As I mentioned before everything is placed on our path to teach us what we need to know at that moment. Honore it and then let it go.

Limit what bombards you in your environment. Remember that everything in essence is energy, frequency and vibrations. Take 5 mins and scan your environment, scan what the repetitive behaviour or patterns are in your social media cercles. Are they more inclined on being positive or negative energies? Negative energies can sometime’s feel like a truck is hitting you at full speed. Cut as much as you can out. Sometimes that means cutting some people out temporarily or permanently. It’s fine, your paths might meet again. In the meantime Send them love and respect them on there journey.

Third: And this one is inspired by the bright young ladies and women I was blessed to meet yesterday at ‪#‎Sebastian‬‘s ‪#‎ABAMONTREAL‬ hair show preparation yesterday. Keep asking questions. As long as your asking questions your moving forward. Regardless of the subject. Even if it is too yourself. This empowers us, gives us knowledge, it builds our intuition, teaches us where and where not to get information, amongst so many other things.

Last: Ask for help. Ill never stress this enough. Respect yourself enough to accept what you so lovingly give away every single day. If you constantly refuse it to yourself you are stating that your not worthy of that love.Too many times have I stubbornly refused help or did not ask for help, thinking it would make me weak and unworthy of the goals I set. But in reality it does just the opposite. We give each other strength we have to embrace that.

Apply these as many times as you can in your life and I assure you it will fine 🙂 Darkness cannot survive in the presence of Light 😉

With that said I would like to recognize my dentist and amazing friend Sheila Badra-De Celles for teaching me that real beauty lies within. By always aligning her actions with pure kindness and integrity.

My lawyer…, If i can legally say that yet, Mahsa Khoshbin for teaching me about speaking my truth and determination. By always pushing threw the thick and thins of life regardless of the obstacles by facing them truthfully.

Last but not least, my mom, Vedrana Gregov which some of you might know, is an incredibly beautiful and strong soul. She has thought me everything she needed to teach me about life and I can sometime see a sadness in her eyes when the realization dawns on her about her little princesses growing up. But I reassure you mom that I have always and will always need and appreciate your love and guidance. Thank you.

Take this time to recognize silently or expressively one incredible female figure in your life and see how that makes you feel 🙂

Have a Beautiful and Blessed Night
& Always Love
