Honoring yourself

Standard

“You show others how to treat you”- Dr. Phil

I am intuitively sensing alot of us are stuck and are struggling emotionally right now.  It is my hope for those of you reading this, that you find the courage and self love you truly deserve.

Have you ever been in a relationship where you stayed too long?You knew in your heart this person was not meant for you…even though you knew this person was going to hurt you…you stayed anyways.

I think we can honestly say we have all been there and WHY?

Because its better than being alone.

The real reason is we are fearful of our own potential.We give this person so much control over our own emotions that we forget we are living for ourselves. We must learn to love and honor ourselves before we can even learn to love another.

What are your needs and wants?

Alot of people can’t even articulate that…no one has ever asked and it would seem selfish to ask ourselves. But why? We deserve love and affection,too.

In order to give love..we must first know to receive it from ourselves and to ourselves.

Before starting a new relationship you must set some guidelines for yourself. These are rules that can not be broken and you will fight for.Its called Self Worth and an act of self love.

1. Know what you want-do not settle.

2. Place boundaries-Things you will not tolerate in a relationship.

3. Self respect- Never let anyone disrespect you or use you as a doormat or be a convenience to them.

4. Self worth- Your self esteem is worth more than anyone elses feelings.

5.Listen to the whispers of your own intuition.Don’t doubt them or disregard these feelings.We all see the signs early on but we chose to ignore them. When we could have saved ourselves alot of heartache in the end.

Finally, CHOOSE happiness. No one said you must be married or in a relationship to be happy.You could have a long happy fulfilling life by being in the present , being grateful and enjoying each new day. If it doesn’t feel right, that’s because it isn’t. Don’t doubt yourself.

Do something to honor yourself.

Love yourself by doing something you love….for YOU!

New Year

Standard

Ringing the new year, alot of us are excited to see what this new year brings. Is it a new love? A new career opportunity? We’ve set our new goals and new list of things we want to accomplish. However, for others we see things kind of gray or through gray lenses. Almost as reminder that we did not accomplish anything this past year.Was 2016 a BAD year for you?

Remember this is a new book of YOU. Last year was a year to ” let go” of the things that no longer suit you. Just like an old sweater.Its time to clear that emotional closet and get a new wardrobe. That’s where the new adventure comes in. Its time to look at things differently. Go out and try something new. Something you have always wanted to try. Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Do it now and make it perfect! This is a time to try out new things we have always wanted to try out. Time for new people in your life who bring in news ideas and new experiences. Who cares if you go at it alone. Surround yourself with people who are at the same time in their life. Remember “Likes” attract” Likes”.

Instead of looking at 2016 as a complete failure, think of it as a time you spent remaining still and moments of reflection. Just like winter is a time when flowers wither away. Springtime comes in as a time for rebirth. Fresh new blooms. Lets not hold on on to what may have been or once was. This is a new page in your book. What you write in it , is up to you.

 

Love and Light!

Breath

Standard

Breathing is the bridge between mind and body, the connection between the consciousness and subconsciousness, the movement of spirit into matter.
Breath is life.It is the key to wellness of the body mind and soul.Once we can master breath regulate and develop increased awareness and improve our physical, mental and spiritual being.In otherwords we become to feel whole again.A relaxed state with focus and purpose.

This simple breathing exercise should be done for at least a few minutes a day.I recommend upon waking would be the best time. It sets your day to come in balance and harmony.The goal is simply to keep your attention on the breath cycle and observe.

Instructions:

1.Sit in a comfortable upright position with your back straight and your eyes lightly closed, having loosened any tight clothing. Let your tongue just fall back in your mouth and relax your face.

2.Focus your attention on your breathing and inhale deeply and exhale through your mouth. Make sure to take deep breaths.You want to get as much oxygen to your brain and internal organs. For those of you who do not normally meditate, you may begin to feel a little light-headed at first.This is because your oxygen levels are returning and are now flowing.
