Intuition is Resistance, new post on the blog all about how feelings of fear & resistance are distinct and how these experiences can guide us to best decisions in our lives, the decisions that lead us to our truest purpose & passions 🤗
Not only is this stone beautiful, it has some pretty cool mythology around who used to wear it and why. On the blog today I dive into who used to wear it and why....and it makes me feel like Wonder Woman just thinking about it. Link in bio to read!
Your identity is who you are at your core. What you do is an expression of who you are. .
When we combine the two and think it’s our identity, challenging situations and events can take us down more easily, our ego can often get shattered unnecessarily and we lack the ability to respond in an effective way. .
But when we separate out who we are from what we do, and focus on just the who we are, then we always have a solid footing or foundation of core qualities, values and beliefs to respond with and from. We have this reference to fall back on that goes something like this ‘yeah this is hard but I’m creative, strong, compassionate, loving and driven and I’ll find a way through this’. .
It’s through this that we begin to trust ourselves and know that we can handle what life throws at us.
You will forget. .
You will forget what it was like to walk in your own shoes. .
You will shake your head and wonder how they could be so selfish. How they could not get it. .
Doesn’t she realize the implications of her actions? (Not really) .
Doesn’t he see how simple the solution really is? (Um, nope.) .
How could he/she DO that? (It was both easier and harder than you think) .
You will think “I wasn’t this bad.” (You probably were) .
People will look to you for your “expertise.” Because they assume you know how to “fix” it. (Nope) .
You will realize that no matter how much experience you have, no matter how much you know, no matter how far you’ve come...you can’t get someone there until they want to be there. And the closer they are to you, the harder it is. The more helpless you are. The more it hurts because you know full well that when they finally “come to” they are going to be in so. much. pain. .
Also: You are worried. Because it’s still scary out there. Scarier, even. How did we make it out alive? Not everyone does. That knowledge alone keeps me up at night. .
I have two family members deep in their addiction atm. It’s tiring. It’s scary. It’s frustrating. Doesn’t matter how much time I have. Doesn’t matter that I went to school to be a counselor. Doesn’t matter that I spent years of my life in active addiction and I know all the bullshit lies and tricks and denial and just how stupid a person is when they are desperate. .
Doesn’t matter. Knowledge does me no good. .
Remembering does though. Remembering gives me the empathy I need so I can be present in a non-judgmental way. (Mostly...ok not always) . Looking at where I was vs. where I am now gives me hope and allows me to have faith. I don’t give up. On anyone.
Il est important d’apprécier la vie et d’être reconnaissant pour ce que vous avez☀️😁
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!! I remember when I used to pray and wish for the things that I now have. Things that I couldn't even imagine... things that had no idea how they would come to be. But I still visualized it, and continued to pray and wish for it. So much so, that I could feel it. Every time i would talk about these ideas, dreams and goals i could feel myself living them out. I could feel it already being my reality even though it was so far away from the actual reality I was currently living in.
Trust the process, believe in yourself, and continue to have faith in The Universe and everything that comes your way. No matter how good or how bad things may be, you have to remind yourself that there's always a larger purpose or meaning to your existence and the beings around you. A purpose and meaning that perhaps may never be understood, but that shouldn't deter you from fighting and working for the life you want and deserve.
Remember, what is for you will not pass you! Everything will be in its proper and perfect timing for and of your life... TRUST THAT!
Grateful and thankful for the good and the bad, in all ways, always... blessed!- GMat 🌱🌻#perfecttiming #thinkingoutloud #rightontime #alliswellinmyworld #trustyourself #faith #purpose #lifeisbeautiful #BeautifulStruggle #warrioroflight #reminders #liveandlearn #goodvibesonly #lifeisgood #lifelessons #weareallinthistogether #selfreflections #blessed #radiate #grateful #hopeful #TrustTheUniverse #trustyourself #enlightenment #synchronicity #motivation #inspiration #positiveenergy #higherconsciousness #awakening
Sometimes I have the biggest lapse in my confidence. Today I walked past a shop window and saw myself as a complete whale. Then during a meeting I saw a picture that was taken of me last last year. I wasn’t a whale then and I’m definitely not one now. Sometimes you really have to check yourself before you wreck yourself (that was terrible, but true 🤷🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️😂). Moral of the story is: take a look back at where you were when you begun and trust the process. 👉🏾👉🏾👉🏾 to see the progress now 💖 #throwbackthursday #trusttheuniverse #trustyourself
HEALING is allowing peace in.
It is seeing the simplicity in a situation.
Stripping the emotion away.
Allowing the realisation that it is done
and bringing your energy back to the present.
This allows for more effective healing to occur
and to bring forgiveness to bear on the situation.
Come join me in the ‘HEALING THROUGH SELF-LOVE 5 day Journey’
in a private Facebook group
and learn why forgiveness is self -love. 30 July 2018 to 03 August 2018

with you all tonight -- Everyone has their struggles and suffering is an innate part of the human condition. I've accepted and embraced this fact which has allowed me to be a warrior of resilience, of hope, and of love. That despite what I had gone through my experience, the rebuilding afterwards has been a gift. I have grown exponentially mentally, emotionally, and spiritually because of the long suffering I endured.
I have not let my experience keep me from seeing the humanity in others. I have not let it destroy my love & kindness for others. I have not let it diminish my positive energy. In fact it has made me stronger and want to love more and share myself,my purpose, my gifts, with the world even more.
There are days his echoes still win. However, in the process of rebuilding myself I have learned that TRUSTING & LOVING YOURSELF are so important. If you cannot trust yourself then you will stay stagnant in the muddy waters of your past. If you cannot learn to love yourself then you will never know your value or worth.
Both are key to healing, letting go, moving on, and building a better life for yourself.
So to all of you out there who feel hopeless, lost, and unworthy on their journey in the aftermath... Stay the course, be patient, and be kind to yourself. You are not weak. You did not have "low self esteem". The person you were has always been who you are. Past, present, and future.
It's not your fault.
So quit taking responsibility for other people's actions and feelings... It's not your burden to carry. You are only responsible for YOU; your feelings, your actions, your choices.
