#Freebiefriday Who on this page runs a business?
Is it running as powerfully as you'd like?
Do you feel as if most days there is a major struggle between the work you do and the end result?
Who doesn't have a business, but feels they are currently struggling with the ebb and flow of life - career, family, relationship, health & fitness, etc?.
I'd love to offer you a 15 min clarity session and see if there is an opportunity to mentor you through this process and to see if maybe you're the right fit for a mastermind coaching program that I'm launching soon.
Maybe you're interested in the coaching program straight up to stop procrastinating and get life moving in flow and momentum! Some of us make excuses and others just do it! Imagine and investment of $57 a month that will not only grow you personally on many levels, but also your business....

#throwback Fess up... How many of these phones have you owed? I recall my first phone - It was a Nokia (have no idea what model), and I still have the same phone number... That was maybe 18 years ago! I had a Motorola next. - it was a pink flip phone and it was tough! I dropped it in a bonfire once, as it feel out of my pocket, rang it, seen it glowing, picked it up and left my fingerprints embedded in the case, it still worked! Then it was floating in a handbag full of water due to my water bottle leaking, I dried it out, again it worked like a charm!
Then it happened... My first iPhone!!! It was an iPhone 3. I now have an iPhone 6 and can say that I'll be an iPhone user for life! lol Unless Samsung proves me otherwise!
Imagine the person that invented the phone and thought to themselves that the way this looks and the way you use it will be the only way for eternity! Crazy thinking right!
This leads me to this...Our attachment to the things in our lives - people, places, things and the way someone should or shouldn't be, really is something called 'stinking thinking'!
We all must grow and evolve. The only way to do that is by change. The only way to change for some, is by having major life dramas. In these moments, it's essential that we prepare ourselves for this long before anything drastic happens.
But how do we do that? Embrace change and this all starts with the small things! Start from today looking back over the last 3 months. What happened? What big and small changes occurred? How did these changes make you feel on a negative and positive level?
For most of you (and I've been guilty in this), we will have lots of negatives about a bad experience and find it difficult to see a positive. But this is the hardest one to grasp...In a positive situation, where was the negative?
I'm not trying to get you to see the negative in everything, I'm trying to get you to see the positive and negative in all experiences in our life. For instance, my Grandmothers passing (negative), gathered family members that I haven't seen for so long. My boys where graced with this also even meeting their second cousin for the first time (positive).
If we keep this attachment in life that you only feel good when good things happen, when not so good things happen, it will leave a big gap in your life. As you find your awareness with this, the gaps get smaller and change doesn't seem so drastic after all!
#wisdom Have you ever had a conversation with someone and never actually heard a word they've said? Yes I'm guilty!!! If you are reading this and you've experienced this from me, please know that my ignorance was leading the way...xo
You were either looking as though you where listening but thinking about something else. You were scrolling through Facebook or texting or emailing someone. Or you may have been interrupting with stories or experiences of your own! Sound familiar?
The intention is not to make you feel guilty. The intention is to allow you to acknowledge the conversation, and then review how to hold that space for the person.
First think about what they are saying. Are they sharing with you a challenging situation that they need to get off their chest? Is it just a "how lovely is this weather today and how's your chai, almond, turmeric latte with a dusting of cinnamon?" conversation? Or is it that they are sharing to get some advice from you as their friend?
Once you have that covered, then you can move forward with being able to hold that space for the person and even ask them how they would like you to be there for them (obviously if it's a nice fluffy conversation, then run free and flowing and include some laughter)!
What does holding the space mean? Holding a space is where you allow the person to share with you in a non-judgmental way. They feel safe to express knowing that you're not feeling sorry for them, but rather just loving on them and holding that space for them to be real...
If the conversation allows, offering up advice or sharing an experience can also allow the other person to grow and explore an alternative way to move forward with their pain, challenge or problem. The biggest part is this: if you offer advice, do not be attached to them taking it and acting on it, as all of us are creating our reality every second of the day in the way that is exactly right for us - good or bad. So what may have resonated and worked for you, may not necessarily work for someone else...
The lessons of life are weaved into the fabric of our existence as we move in and out of our realities creating the good and bad that we need in order to move forward and grow and become the best versions of ourselves....
#teachme I've taken time the last couple of days to stop and listen and allow myself to not feel pressured into having this done, or having that done and instead I've stopped!
I've allowed myself the time to stop and smell the roses, to take in the beauty of something so simple, and acknowledge the innocence of someone so special to me....
The picture was taken at my Grandmothers funeral last week, and the beautiful little lady smelling the flower is Georgia (my little sister!!!!). Such a special moment with her...
But why is it that it takes death, or sadness, or an experience that isn't ideal to take this time to reflect? Why are we not doing this all the time?
It's because we are not wired that way. We are wired to keep moving forward and if we stop, we've been conditioned to believe that we wont achieve our goals, or that we will miss an opportunity. From what I've witnessed as my truth, this is completely untrue as time and action alone isn't necessary the decider of when and how you'll create your reality, the mind is!
My advice is take time at the end of the day to reflect on what it is you're grateful for and what you need to do the following day by setting an intention of how you want the day to evolve and what reality you desire to create.
I'm not saying to take a full week of and do nothing, but if you feel the need to do that and know that it's temporary and whilst in that state you're feeling positive and listening in for insight into how you can grow yourself and/or your business, then do it!
As we move into the summer months, this is a really great time to honour and allow the space of nothingness as you worship the sun, sand and waves.... and explore nature in it's most fine form... xo
#teachme Do you know that every moment of your life is being created by how you choose to think the way your life is!
For the most part, 99.9% if us will only see and focus on all the things we do not have in our lives and wish, desire and long for those things, and feel as if the possibilities of ever achieving them are impossible.
Today I want you to review where you are in your life and acknowledge what it is you desire, then take a piece of what it is you desire and see it in the things you've already got!
I'll explain it like this as you may be confused! If you have a cup of salt water taken from the sea, is that the ocean? Yes it is, but some may say that it's just a cup of salty water. Is an acorn a tree, a house or a city or just an acorn?
The essence of what we need to shift, is the fact that there are infinite possibilities in every situation in our lives but we will block most of them due to focusing on the longing for the things we don't have or the listening to that inner voice that tells you you'd never be able to do this, or you'd never be able to do that...
Get a piece of paper and write down how you feel about what you have in your life or the condition of your life right now in regards to:
Family & Friends
Being 100% honest and open and true...
Now imagine that in 90 Days you could change or that... What would that look like? Rewrite the above:
Family & Friends
Read this every day and know that as you are reading this and believing this, you are activating part of your brain called the RTA (reticular activation system), which is extremely powerful and moving you towards the things you desire...
Share with me your experience....
#motivationalmindset Happy Monday... I'm back in flow... I've had a little space from Facebook and allowed myself to not do much at all. I've stepped back from the need to finish this, do that and be acting on someone else's expectations other than my own!
That may mean that a few things I needed to get completed didn't get done, but they are still going to be there for when I come back to them.
Trust that voice that says, today just go within and listen, relax and allow yourself the space to rejuvenate...
When that time is over, you know that you're more refreshed, focused and ready!
Don't be afraid to stop for a while and just BE! xo
#throwback What are some of the cartoons you used to love growing up? Do you recall the time when cartoons or the show you loved would only be on at a specific time and then after that TV just went to infomercial shows! Not like Netflix or Stan or even TV today!
I loved Masters Of The Universe... It seems it would be a masculine show as I reflect back now, but I loved it because defending the Universe is of the utmost importance right!
To be honest, I do not really recall the content as clear as I'd like (maybe I need to watch an episode!). Did you watch this show?
As we sit and reflect through life, all around us things are changing and evolving, and so are you! So essentially, tomorrow will bring new things and will never be the same. As you learn, evolve, grow and expand, so is everything else.... Master Of The Universe flash back one minute, Netflix and what we see now is the next!
My suggestion for you is this... As this change happens, don't resist it, ride it! What does that mean? Keep up with technology and look for the positives, be aware of the negatives and use this opportunity to open up to a new level of consciousness.
Your are unlimited, limitless, amazing and abundant in all areas of your life.... Take change by the reigns or it will take you by the reigns! xo
#wisdom how amazing would it be if what it was that you where looking for in life - success, relationship, love, happiness, friends etc, you actually found something greater!
You could be thinking "but me finding what it that I desire would be amazing right now", but my question to you is - would it really?
See what I've noticed the most is that we all think way way too small! We think how awesome it will be when I get the big house, or the new car or the relationship or the money in the bank...etc
Now I know that I am relating to material things here, but be honest - that's what you're desiring, that's what on your vision board, that's what you long for and if there is anyone of you that says you are 100% content with your material wealth and you want to just be 'spiritual', I challenge you on your beliefs and I'll call you on it and say there maybe some truth to that but there may also be some untruths (if you're challenged by this, please reach out)..
So what I'm about to call you all on is - YOUR THINKING IS KEEPING YOU SMALL! And YOUR THINKING IS BASED ON A SENSE OF LONGING!
Look at your life as if you have all those things already and start living the dream! How do we do that? Living is actually FEELING so it's essential that you feel your world into existence! How amazing would it be to desire 20 houses that house amazing beautiful families that you could nurture. How amazing would it be if you had more than one car so in the event someone should need a ride you offer them a car instead. How amazing would it be if your bank account was overflowing so that you had more than enough to give! what if you started taking yourself out on dates and loving you more so that you had an open heart to meet and love on others?
How amazing would that be?
#teachme When was the last time you looked in the mirror and said "hey girl I absolutely love everything about you"? Your curves, your smile, your teeth, your hair, your butt, you skin, your wrinkles, your wobbly bits... They are all beautiful!
When was the last time you said to yourself that all your broken bits, all your heart ache, all the time you cried because you felt overwhelmed, all the times you've been on the brink of breaking down and yet you still hold it together, was the best thing that ever happened?
I trust that you most likely won't remember, however, self love is essential in our desire for more! It's so easy to beat yourself up about all the negative things but we very rarely take the time to celebrate even the smallest of things that we do!
What if every time you felt challenged you celebrated it as a time for growth. What if every time you looked at yourself and judged yourself you said thank you for the wake up as you need to love yourself more by drinking more water, moving your body more, eating healthier or taking time out for yourself.
Today is about self love - find ways to lift yourself up instead of beating yourself down! Take a piece of paper and write down a time when you felt as if you where beating yourself up about how you looked or a situation that wasn't ideal for you at the time. Reflect back on that moment and find the positive moments in the situation. What you're looking for is your own personal growth. If you're challenged by this, find the smallest things like a book you picked up to read, or a smile from a stranger. When you see that every moment in your life is leading you to discover more about your most amazing self, nothing in this world can break you!
Every wrong turn leads to an opportunity for growth
#motivatinalmindset Sometimes you go through life thinking that you are just chasing your tail. You feel as if the hours of time and energy spent on your business is pointless as the results do not reflect the input. Or you feel the work you do in your relationship is leading you to an empty bed or the management of your money is leading to less shopping or opportunities.
The point is this: if you are working towards something bigger, it will take time to reveal how this actually looks or shows up in your life, but the secret to your success comes down to one thing...
If you want anything in life, you have to feel as if you already have it NOW! Not later, not when it's in your face, not when you're bank account reflects it, not when your up on stage speaking - but NOW! You have to feel loved if you want love, you have to feel success if you want to be successful, you have to feel rich is you want to be rich!
If you go through life looking for all the things that are not happening or showing up in your life, you're living a life full of voids! Go through life looking for the things you already have and this will offer you more as you open up your awareness to greater things..
I am me... Full of useful knowledge that one day me be of benefit to those who love waffling about business, wellness, health and fitness and those who just love life!!
