L3 Challenge Day 4: Do something for yourself

#AllWomenChallenge

#Challenge4: Do something for yourself and turn it into a ritual

1-#JustForToday: Visualize the person you want to be.
If you are still having trouble doing this, I know I am, try thinking of all the individuals whom have inspired you so far. What about them inspire you towards this person you know, or at least your subconscious knows, is inside? That person who has done, said or dared things you have only thought of and have always wanted to explore. The friend that stood their ground or the performer that killed it on stage. Our feelings, intuition, is your compass**. 

2- #JustForToday: Calm down mind chatter.
Just for today stick with calming down mind chatter. It’s the hardest one but with the most substantial results. You are doing awesome, keep it up!

3- #JustForToday: Commit.
Commit to integrity. Just for today, do one thing that is in alignment with the being you want to be. Be the example

4- #JustForToday: Do something for yourself and turn it into a ritual.
Just for today, take 5 min, at least, for yourself. You deserve your own attention as much as the next. Yes I am once again putting a great amount of emphasis in regards to this! Do something that makes you feel good about yourself and relaxed. This challenge is to an extra importance this time because it is used in reconnecting with ourselves and reconnecting with ourselves is, as already mentioned, leadership 101. We can’t lead if we don’t know where we are leading too.

We know where we are leading too, when we know who we are.

We know who we are, when we have found ourself.

And we find our higher self, when we are responding in accordance with the greater good for ourself and for all.

The greatest Love of them all. Take this time for yourself and turn it as a ritual, make it sacred part of your day. It’s important. So just for today, take that 5 mins for yourself and sit alone on the stairs in front of your office. Or get that 5$ iced caramel frappuccino your crazing so much and enjoy every sip. Go for that jog, put on that mascara and or eyeliner your didn’t have time to put on this morning.

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

Title inspired by one of The Beatles’ greatest 😉

 

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 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

 

Blog 3; Letting go of resistance

Blog 3

Good morning you Beautiful and Strong Souls. It is time to inject that coffee, tea, protein shake or whatever wakes you up in the morning right into your veins today. Because we are getting to the tough stuff. Letting go of all resistance, going with the flow.

This is still a work in progress on my end Ladies and gents. My apologies to whomever that might concern I think it might be the pigheaded Scorpio side that simply refuses to be wrong Xo 😉

And there is the first step:
The Acknowledgement of resistance. You cant fight resistance with resistance. That just creates more resistance. Am I making my point yet?
You cant fight fire with fire, like you cant solve a problem by throwing bombs. Whether its literally speaking, like the ongoing wars around the world, which we try and persuade ourselves into believing its for the greater good, or metaphorically speaking with our egos and social constructive norms constantly bombarding us with how things ought to be.

With that said the first step is acknowledging the resistance. From there you can attempt to transmute it. You can visualize holding your struggles as a ball of burning hot iron. If you cant seem to let go imagine it getting hotter and hotter until you just cant hold on anymore. With practice you will be letting that ball go sooner and sooner. Some days you wont but thats fine. Whats most important is paying attention to whats going on inside. You can also visualize that same ball of hot iron transforming into anything that brings your mind peace. From a flower blooming to a rainbow exploding with skittles !

Remember that everything is put on your path for a reason. As hard as it might be to admit; Resistance serves a purpose. What that purpose is? No idea yet ! Its still an on going love hate relationship my mind refuses to let go of. Ironic Right. Haha We will be seeing this subject again No worries 😉

Have a Beautiful and Blessed Day
& Always Love

If anyone can tell me the credits of this fabulous painting it would be very appreciated Thanks!

 

Blog 2; Staying true to yourself

Blog 2

Rise and shine you Beautiful and Strong Individuals. Today is all about integrity, staying true to yourself.

Part of loving your self is healing yourself. By aligning your actions with your internal compass. This compass will point to anywhere you hold your thoughts, regardless of the amount of times. So always try and aim it towards what you believe is right. Meaning, based on no one else’s code of conduct but your own.

Why is this important? Because the moment you don’t, you create a misalignment with your values. This is in essence what makes you who you are. And if your not in alignment with who you truly are down at the core, its a bit harder to love yourself. Don’t worry if you have trouble doing so. Values are constantly transmuting based on new information and new experiences and Misalignment is not something we learn in school. Which is perfectly fine, because you are now aware that you are in control of your thoughts.

How does this work;
Pay attention to your body. How does it react when you say or do anything. Do you have an unusual or awkward feeling or pressure anywhere. Is it in the stomach area or chest, where your heart is located 😉? When you pin point the tension; The second step is to acquire the necessary time to acknowledge it. This could be during the moment or 5 minutes in between brakes or even before going to bed. Simply to see whats up and thanking your body for communicating what no longer or might no longer serve you and anything else you need to know at that moment. Our body is a great tool for our soul and spirit. Try and always respect and acknowledge it by healing it with that white light of pure love, especially when all else fails 😉

Last step; Turn this into a healthy habit and it will become a great tool. Just remember the fun part is getting back up after falling down. A child learning how to walk is always laughing and determined when they fall over. In essence you can say they are the purest form of self love. Don’t you agree? There is a lot we can learn about ourselves threw the eyes of a child. Always honor and respect your lessons.

Have a Beautiful Day
& Always Love
