#LettingGo

Be Free

Letting go is never easy. It’s something I didn’t understand; I still get confused at times. Its only when you start letting go that you realize how much there is to let go. There are so many things that do not serve us anymore but that we still hold on too. Whether it’s a passed relationship, images of past, present and future endeavours of what has, could haves, or might bes. Relationships that hinder our growth, foods and addictions we push our bodies to consume despite the after math, How people think about us; family as much, if not more, then none members. We go to the point of altering our self-image and self-worth as deep as the subconscious level just to accommodate to biased opinions imposed on us by individuals that think they know best. We respond to these out of fears of being judged and most common of then all, fear of loosing the most desired emotion; Love….

And it is there the art of Conditional Love is born. We hide not or impose, not to offend or to validate our feelings. We let our mind consume us, impose our expectations and desired conditions or we tuck ourselves away until we can’t handle it anymore. Then it comes down too, who’s feelings should be prioritized. We are all here on a journey and part of that journey is to strip away all that no longer serves us including some deep ingrained foundations that our lives are build on. In other words letting go.
If we kept these self deprecating foundation women still would not have the right to vote, Gandhi wouldn’t be Gandhi as we know him now and all these amazing stories about people pushing boundaries physically, mentally and spiritually would just be myths.

Letting go is respecting yourself enough to know that holding on will bring nothing. It will only take away your power of loving. Letting go is honouring who we truly are and who we truly are is not defined by the limits we let ourselves or others impose on us. Letting go is freeing yourself.

Enjoy this beautiful and blessed rainy day. Let it wash away all that no longer serve 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

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

Blog11; Being alone with yourself

Blog 11

#Date #Beingalone #Onewithyourself #Distratction #Bodymindsoul

#Silence

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to be alone with ourselves. Society has a way of distracting us from every angle. It’s not for nothing, there is millions being invested in marketing just for that. To distract us, to hypnotize us but importantly to reach us at a subconscious level for means of manipulation, whatever the purpose may be. Remember however that one needs to accept to be manipulated. Accepting doesn’t mean wanting, it simply implies that at a certain level, weither it is subconscious or not, we accepted and stored the information being thrown at us without really taking the time to fully understand what that entitled and what is at stake. In other words, it’s a great way for not taking responsibility of our actions and/or thoughts. However the importance of being alone goes beyond taking control of our mind. If we truly want to know who we are, where we want to be, or where we want to go, that personal time is absolutely crucial. The answers we seek are all within. Remember this statement because we will come back to it again. We have everything we need within us as long as we keep our intentions clear and pure. Being alone gives us the chance to be one with ourselves. Silence is a blessing Take it as such. Push this notion a little further and take yourself out on a date, just your body, mind and your soul. It will give you a chance to truly see your likes and dislikes. It will teach you how you want to be treated and in consequence, it will let you see how you let others treat you. What would you do if you where to take yourself out on a date? I will leave you with that though 😉

Have a great day you Beautiful and Strong Souls xXOXx

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 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
