I won't even try to sugar coat it, I had a rough week last week. I was beating myself up for days over my shortcomings. I felt like I was blocking myself and being too controlling. I had this unrealistic idea that when I fully let go and surrendered, then everything would melt away and life would be perfect.
Why wasn't I there yet? Welcome to my pity party!
A good friend was kind enough to help me out at 1 am and through her energy work session, I felt so much release and clarity. I want to share this with you today, but it's a doozy so get comfy!
As my fear lifted and I started to settle into this new energy, I began to feel like a little hippie buddha. Suddenly!! I was hit with so much belief and love. Not just in myself, but in YOU. Yes! YOU!
I was dreaming and I saw a message that you are born with a gift. Society often doesn't nurture those gifts because we are all expected to fit into the same little boring box so many of us diminish our...
A lot of people swear by aromatherapy for emotional release. This is because aromatherapy is one of the few things we can do that has a direct impact on the mind.
You can test this theory by think of a smell that jogs a memory. For me, its the smell of old lady rose perfume. My great-grandmother always smelled like that and her bedroom was an explosion of it. Now whenever I smell some a rose scent, I'm transported back to her.
Do you have a smell like that?
Sometimes these scents are so ingrained into our brain that they cause an emotional response instead of a memory. For instance, simply think of smelling fresh peppermint and noticing how it makes you feel?
Smells can do this because they directly impact the limbic center of our brain. The limbic system is the emotional center of our body and it is responsible for the experience and expression of emotion. To think that smell can do that! It's amazing, isn't it?
A lot of people ask me why I include Reiki in my coaching programs, but it's because I've seen how powerful it can be.
Trust me-- I was skeptical of Reiki when I was introduced to it in 2015. I thought it was a bunch of people doing all kinds of crazy stuff to rip off others, but then I found out that my good friend was a Reiki Master. We talked and that day I joined her Group Reiki Circle.
In that session, I found so much calm and peace... until my stomach started to feel weird. For 3 days, I vomited. At first, I didn't put them together, but after talking to my friend she said that when we have a huge energy shift we often can have a physical manifestation of that energy leaving our bodies.
Well, vomiting is definitely symbolic of that!
She recommended that I take a bath and try to let go of my feelings of control and have faith in the process. And as soon as I did that-- my vomiting stopped. In an instant and never came back.
A lot of people ask me questions like "Should I eat this?" or "Should I intermittent fast?" and I always give them an answer that leaves them staring wide-eyed at me.
"What does your body tell you?"
Man, people hate that response. But it's the only truly good response and let me explain to you why that is.
So the only response that truly honors you is to ask what your body says. Think about it-- if you ask me if you should eat chocolate cake or more kale, you probably know the answer, don't you?
Of course, some answers don't come that easily. Should you intermittent fast? There is...
