I Love Me – the best new kinda diet there is on the market today

I Love Me – the best new kinda diet there is on the market today

Given we’re having an energetic surge and upgrade this year as we enter a new nine year cycle, what better time to start ramping up the self love and self care regimes?

Is it time to start addressing that negative self talk occurring inside your head? For me, I found when I first started addressing this, I was struck with profound guilt and blame for treating myself so negatively.

Where did that get met? More negative thoughts about self! I could almost hear Dr Phil stating that dreaded question “how’s that working for you?

Now you can react to that statement and hang your head in shame. OR, you can use this question to motivate you to make changes in your life.

Change isn’t immediate, but gradual awareness of your stuff baby steps you into a space of humble acceptance of where you’re at.

Understanding the rules of Law Of Attraction, all abundance is generated with the commencement of thoughts. What you think, you create. That’s a mighty powerful pill to swallow, especially if the thoughts are negative.

One of the key steps to commencing a change process is acknowledging on a conscious level what is going on in your life. The more aware you are, the more clarity you gain of what you want to keep in your life, versus what you want to change. As you become more aware, you are gifting yourself the opportunity to reach that ‘choice point’ – what stays and what goes.

The first step to changing this pattern is to acknowledge what is happening. It’s journalling time with your favourite cup/glass of something, some nice music and if you’re game get into the bath!

Why? Because I want you relaxed! To be honest with yourself you have to get comfortable!

Choose to allow yourself to become aware of what the myriad of thoughts are AND what triggers them.

You may like to explore these scenarios and triggers by writing yourself a love letter. Or try a ‘fuck you’ letter to someone who has recently pushed your buttons. Never send this correspondence. This is your purging gift to release those negative stored feelings.

Allowing this awareness to arise GIFTS you the opportunity to see and feel how those words make you feel and how they may be manifesting into your life. Now take note here. If you’re exhausted from just purging, then allow yourself to rest. This might take you several attempts. There may be tears or anger. Awesome. Go and punch your pillow (not a person) on your bed. Let that negative juju go!

Once you’ve purged a scenario, ask yourself this “is there another time in my life that I have experienced these feelings or trigger scenarios?” This question is designed to help you explore whether this is an isolated incident, or whether in fact, there is a pattern of unresolved emotion.

This is powerful stuff, and it takes time. But the process starts with you reaching a choice point of wanting to change direction, change an old pattern, change a job, change a partner, or, just change the size of the clothes you wear.

Often all of this stuff starts with the crap in our heads.  Is it time for you to declutter and love yourself?

Remember you can choose to change and bloom from within, practicising the perfection of you xxx

Perfection In Practice

Perfection In Practice

I don’t know about you but this week I am prompted to get my self care back on track, in a really big way! The energy of July is fast paced, and things are shifting quickly. This includes not only the perception of time, but the concept of setting intentions and the evolution of universal delivery of intentions.

After being on holidays for nearly a month, and returning to full steam ahead, I found myself returned to old habits. The old way of sneaking in sugar and justifying it. The old way of skipping exercise, because it’s too cold outside. The old excuses and monkey mind chatter. And I’ve landed in July feeling inflamed, sore, tired and cranky. No more!

I’ve been meal planning for the coming four weeks, mapping out and scheduling time in my diary for movement dates (to keep me honest). I’ve even returned to crystals jingling in my pockets and doing my yoga stretching. It’s like I feel compelled to dig into my magic bag of tricks and schedule ALL of my tools that I’ve previously used with success, to move forward.

Where my body is allowing me, I’m decluttering and cleaning out spaces in my home and workplace. I’m even finding myself decluttering out my phone and email addresses of content that no longer services me. Deleting apps I don’t use. Downloading my pics to my hard drive to create space is proving to be quite the metaphor for my life. The simpler things get, the more I find myself flowing.

This week the energy is definitely pushing for a massive increase in awareness and the depth of self love that I gift myself. For those battling anxiety, weight, motivation, grief – this is the week we bring your focus back to you and gratitude for where you are right now, NOT where you want to be.

In order to make changes, we need to acknowledge all aspects. This allows us to consciously connect with what feels right or not so great. This conscious awareness then allows is to align to our emotional juju – that good juju, or feelings centre. It’s that gut intuition that allows us to move forward, step back, or step aside.

This is the week we focus on SELF. Everything else can wait. The energy this week is heightened and if our focus is on the drama of others we’re going to miss a huge opportunity! We’re half way through 2018, and the drama that Winter Solstice brought into our lives can be released with love as we migrate forward.

It’s time to practice our perfection – in whatever form that is.

To keep things honest, I’ll share this with you… whilst this is the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life, it’s also the happiest. That said, my current body needs a reset. I’ve decided to return to very clean living and planning out my food preparation and meals for the coming month will help me return to my goal of being sugar free again.

Whilst recently travelling I slipped and I’m back into old habits of reaching for sugar. Consequently, my back and gut have gone AWOL and there is chaos within. I’m reminded of a previous time in my life where this was my ‘normal’. Now as I meditate each day I’m aware that this state is part of my old paradigm pattern. I’ve moved forward, and now need to address the old lurking habit.

I have accepted this is where I am at and now gutting out the cupboard of evil temptation. I shall be preparing lovelies this week so that I can satisfy the need for sweet without the naughty. And please note, rather than go cold turkey, my family and I are on sugar wind down. This approach worked a treat for us last time we did this. When a thing runs out we don’t replace it, we merely change for something else.

I’ll admit it took a couple of months to exclusively eliminate sugar. But that meant that our taste buds adapted over time, and we didn’t waste a tonne of money purchasing alternatives that we didn’t like. We tried new things each fortnight. That made the adaptation bearable, and never did we feel that we were being denied.

The transition was much easier than going into denial of knowing there were still alternative treats available.

So, I strongly recommend being kind to yourself and pick one aspect of life you’d like to change by Christmas time. This week is the energy to kick start your new revolution back to you!

Here’s some easy peasy things to kick start your own change journey.

  1. Drink two more glasses of water each day
  2. Add another cup of vegies on your plate
  3. Go for a walk
  4. Instead of the news, listen to relaxation music
  5. Play a board game with the kids
  6. Do food preparation in advance
  7. Have an exercise buddy (who is prepared to drag you out of bed)
  8. Eliminate electronics an hour before bed
  9. Have a piece of fruit each day (soluble fibre is awesome for happy poos)
  10. Listen to a positive podcast each week
  11. Say sorry to yourself when you catch yourself doing negative self talk
  12. Find one nice thing to say about yourself every day
  13. Find one thing to be grateful for each day
  14. Find something to thank your family for being in your life – even if they are negative

Making small changes every single day really does contribute to you embracing your passion, walking your journey path, understanding your life purpose and shining your light to the world. You are so powerful and don’t even know it yet! You can choose to change and bloom from within xxx
