#GoOnVacation

Take time for yourself

My mother asked me why my sister decided to go to her room last night and if she was angry.

After being on vacation for almost 2 weeks, I’ve come to value and truly appreciate the release taking time for one-self provides. I went out of town, postponed whatever needed to be done, and truly gave myself the time, and am still giving myself the time, needed to let go and release what is no longer serving me. I haven’t been answering any phone calls or text messages and if I had to, at a bare minimal. Took time to do the things that I wanted to do and with whom. I read books, finished projects, spend some quality time with the family, got to know a little better a beautiful ray of sunshine that just entered our lives named Lina.

It’s important to cater to your wants, likes and desires because it’s by being your own best friend, lover and companion that you truly get to know who you are. By doing the things we love doing, the way we love doing them, aids us in reconnecting with ourselves. When we are reconnected with ourselves we have a clearer unbiased view of the person we truly are, we want to be and that provides us with a clearer unbiased view of the next steps on the beautiful and mysterious journey we have set forth on. In addition, the responsibility of our happiness is nobodies but our own. It is the key factor on taking back your personal power. Take the responsibility of your happiness in your hands and no none will be able to take it away from you. We have the right to be and feel happy at all times regardless of our environment and/or circumstances. Living in the present moment gives us that bliss happiness provides and is a great trick to come back to. The beauty and miracles the present moment provides us is incredible, take a moment right now, to feel, smell, see, sense everything this moment can provide. Try and see its essence.

Taking time for yourself also helps release any old lingering energies that only weights us down. This is where the beauty of death comes into play, if you let it. Death is not a scary thing, it gives room for new and more exiting ones.

If you feel like just being alone, do it. If you feel like you want a vacation, take it, even if it is simply in your backyard. Even if it sparks up thoughts and questions in your outside world, so be it. It is nobodies business. But of course, kiss your mother’s forehead to ease any worries, they mean well Xox

L3 Challenge Day #8: Honor your Being

#AllWomenChallenge

#HonorYourBeing #Day8 #challenge

#Challenge8: Honor your Being

Ok so the challenge isn’t over quite yet . This one is the most important off them all; Honor your hard work. And this goes for the theme of this week as well regardless if you’ve attempted the challenge or not. Because I’m sure their are challenges of your own you have to be proud of.

First, stop and reflect on your experience. What did you like about it? What part was the most challenging? How did you feel? Did you awaken any fears? Which ones?

Now thank every single cell in your body for being a part and pushing threw. We tend to forget that every single cell is just as alive as its whole. Dr. Masuru Emoto demonstrates how powerful sending love can be with his research on water. And considering we are composed of over 60% water that statement means a lot. This challenge was not an easy one, especially considering it was unexpected. Just reading and the simple thought of attempting it is already one step closer to achievement. A seed is planted in the subconscious mind, waiting to be fertilized and nurtured. And remember to thank every single obstacle as well because they are what moves us forward. The discomfort of our obstacles or situations is what makes us want to look into or do something about it. Its like the caterpillar pushing her wings out of her cocoon so as to brake free.

Third, Forgive yourself for any action you deemed wrong for there is nothing wrong with trying. Challenges are here to help us gauge our likes and dislike and in return help us find ourselves. With practice our reactions to situations will turn into responses and just like Alchemy, you will be turning metal into gold soon enough. Leadership is simply a question of confidence and believing in yourself. Trust and believe in yourself enough to know that you can achieve anything you desire.

Honor your Being and all its hard work just for this week. And remember to trust and believe that you are moving forward because you are.

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.

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.

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.

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 10; Staying Connected

Blog 10

 

Yesterday was my sisters baby shower and if some of you don’t know, the energies that can be build up in a room due to egos clashing, stress, and wanting everything to be perfect are raised to another level. This is the case for any highly emotionally charged environment and/or situation. Sometimes it feels like your disarmed going into a void sky where anything can and will happen. I’ve had a lot of questions on meditation and weather or not it help’s keep composure. Yes, absolutely. Meditation is a tool I use daily, it’s easy, you can use it anywhere and it’s free. Better then any pill you can take because your building skills verses pushing the problem or situation aside. For these specific situations, meditation will give you more of, what we say in Croatian; strpljenje, patience. Regardless if you believe it or not, I’m sure we can all agree that there is no such thing as too much patience. Meditation, helps build our focus by making us better at eliminating distracting thoughts, emotions and/or daydreams that might infiltrate, flood and confuse our mind. I’ve already given a general description on how to meditate and its benefits, today I want to deepen the conceptualization for you by adding grounding. I’m in waits right now to finish my masters in Reiki and the journey has shed light on personal and universal mysteries and staying grounded is one that always comes back. Grounding simply means staying connected to source, your source being your environment and yourself. Lets push the idea of source here and include God or the celeste or whatever external source you relate to and push the idea of environment including Mother Nature to her core. I’m sure we can all agree that; We are Beings, using energy to interact whit one another by means of different “vibes”, vibrations, we receive. And these vibrations are channeled in regardless if you’re body and mind are able and ready to obtain these information. By staying focused and connected to what goes around us we are better equipped to face on these incoming vibrations/ info. Now lets do so with a grounding exercise. Visualize the exercise while you read and see how you feel. And absolutely feel free to share your opinion and/or your experience with us.
Grounding:
After you’ve read everything; Close your eyes, while adjusting your back to an upright position press your feet gently and comfortably enough to acknowledge their presence. Then imagine a grounding cord starting from the tip of the end of your spine going all the way down to Mother Earth’s magmatic core. You’ll feel your back straightening unintentionally, if it helps you can visualize roots coming out of your feet digging threw anything in the way, all the way into the ground again all the way down to the core. You will automatically feel like you have a firmer foundation. The clearer the channel, the stronger the foundation. From there you can take it another step and visualize a red magmatic light coming up the cord up threw your feet regenerating you. I will be talking about this part in details in later blogs.

From there imagine a cord starting from the top of your head aiming all the way to the sun and feel free to go beyond that. Again take it another step now and imagine a beautiful golden white light coming down and regenerating you once more.

You’re grounded. Apply it whenever and wherever you can. Regardless if its for mediation or not. Especially when you get overwhelmed. With enough practice you will connect automatically to your environment and eventually to source whichever that may be without having to think about it. That statement we keep hearing by great spiritual teachers like Eckhart Tolle“Stay in the present moment” in part is grounding, and bringing yourself back to a state of equilibrium, regaining focus of your true self and responding as such. 🙂

Happy Wednesday you Beautiful and Incredible Souls.

Blog 9; The Ego

Blog9

 

 

Glad to be back on week 2 with my official 9th blog. What a week, this whole month to date has been a month of intense turnovers and incredible synchronicities. Que Sera seems to be the theme. How are you ladies and gents feeling so far along April? I would love to get your feedback! Throughout these incredible conversions, depending on how you are experiencing them, there has been one recurring topic, that of ego. Almost considered as taboo simply to the thought of it. A bad habit I’ve had a hard time quitting. An old friend I had great trouble letting go due to emotional vampirism… And yet still a good friend, because she reminds us, that we always have a choice. The choice to act in alignment with our higher self, which some consider to be our true and authentic self, or the opposite, I will state our lower self, influenced by greed and anger to name a few. She gives us the choice to feed one of two dragons that lingers within us all; the dragon of our fears or the dragon of unconditional love. She’s there to remind us just what kind of person we want to be, by facing mirrors through our own actions and through the actions of others. She* tests our patience, motives, our benevolence, and most importantly, she tests, as I mentioned, our true selves at the core. Every significant and what we believe to be insignificant moment provides us the chance to get that much closer to whom we believe to be our true authentic self. One great tool to our disposal in finding clues to predict our reaction or choices to them is our body. This week, apart from meditation and taking time for yourself 😉, try and pay attention to every movement and see how you feel about them. Do you move with confidence or with fear? Is your movement now altered by your awareness of such? Now try doing this exercise even more so during more emotional circumstances such as arguments or disputes and when the bombs are thrown, observe as much as you can to your reaction and how that reaction affects the outcomes. When you practice enough you will successfully be able to step out of your body and see the big picture. After that let your intuition lead the way. Your intuition is an incredible way for your soul to communicate with you. Once you build that skill it will become second nature. And when your second nature is aligned with mind, body and soul the chances of you now making the right decisions multiply. However the most important part to this exercise is; Regardless of what happens, forgive yourself. Through the wise wisdoms of amazing spiritual teachers remember “You have done nothing wrong”. Pick yourself up, learn and as much as possible crystalize the lesson and always try again.

Thank you from both my blog and I for the honor of sharing in on your beautiful Tuesday  Enjoy Springs official week back to #Montreal in hopes it doesn’t shy away 😉 Have a beautiful and blessed week filled with magical epiphanies you
Awesome SoulS.

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
