What if LOVE is the way?

My love, what if love is the way? I have no idea what I’m going to write here, I only know that this is what is coming through. Recently there have been a few situations where I felt fear and anger but after feeling that on my own, I responded with love.  And it felt so good!

How I did it was I went to the beach for a walk after journaling out my feelings. From there I was trying to get to a place of love and peace but still felt the tight ball in my gut so I started to walk and, rather than saying affirmations for what I am calling in right now, the only thing I could bare to repeat is “I love you X”. X being the person’s name who had incited the fear. And as I walked, I continued to say I love you and I really felt it. Because all we are under our hard exteriors is five-year-old children wanting to be loved and accepted.

Loving this person and drowning out the fear felt expansive and so hard to put into words but in the end, powerful and mature and effective. When fearful thoughts crossed my mind as I went about my day, I repeated “I love you X” and felt it. When the opportunity came to communicate with this person, again I responded with love and I will keep on doing this. I’m not always mature or even tempered but I’m certainly a lot better than before and this situation certainly turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as always.

What if feeling shame is the way to success?

Friend, what if feeling shame is the way to success?

In the last few years I’ve been getting more in touch with my feelings rather than being too positive. Because I realised five years ago that my problem is that I get the lesson before I have truly felt the experience. And when I look around at people who are successful, whether it be in health or career, it seems that they are not only positive but capable of feeling a full range of emotions.

Spiritual and manifesting teachers like Lacy Phillips and Kyle Cease teach this too. Kyle, my favourite guru of the moment, actually says that when we cry, we alchemise the trauma and emotions in our bodies. So I’ve been trying to cry more. And welcoming it when it comes. When I can’t, I use this method for feeling feelings. It really works! I used it when my ex husband told me he was having a baby with his new partner and I just felt numb.

When I was practising the law of attraction a lot, I also realised that when I just tried to be positive rather than feel my feelings, it was like trying to hold a beach ball under the water, and wasn’t effective. The teachers say that when we are present, whether in an activity or meditating, feelings arise and we just have to hold space for them, just let them be. Because an emotion is energy in motion, it will dissipate.

Recently I noticed too that when I wake from a nap, I often feel shame, over putting myself out there and online. Now that I am aware of it, I welcome it. And feel it. It only lasts for a few minutes. When I don’t do embarrassing things, I don’t experience this. But by feeling it, we release it, and then we don’t have to eat, text, stalk, smoke, drink it or do any other addictive behaviours to avoid feeling it. And our vibration lifts. So we are more powerful, energetically, and things just seem to work out. Maybe.

How about that?

What I do when I feel angry.. like now! ( + FREE gift!)

This week I started writing a Master Your Mind book. While I was away I thought a lot about my direction and planned to write this book. Now because of COVID-19 and seeing how people are driving themselves crazy, I decided to put it out a.s.a.p. It will be ready next week!

Of course the Corona virus upsets me too, when I focus on it. I feel angry that what started with the consumption of wild and endangered animals has led to such a crisis around the world. Then I did my Release Your Feelings process and know that whatever’s happening is meant to be, just wait and see. 

Something better is coming.

It certainly has woken me up and made me step into my power, sharing what I know and what I do. Is it calling you too? At first, because of what I’ve gone through when my life fell apart after brain surgery for metastatic breast cancer and then came back together using tools for mind mastery, I felt prepared for this shift.

I also feel to lean even more into the metaphysical. So I’ve been tuning out of the news and conversation of doom and gloom and tuning into manifesting teachers, like Amanda Frances with her podcast, And She Rises. This definitely puts me in a high vibe state.

Money comes and money comes and money comes and money keeps on coming and I have so much money, avalanches and plethoras of money. 

When we are not in our survival (lymbic) (reptilian) brain, we can be in our rational mind and solutions emerge. When we are in survival mode, we are bizarrely hoarding toilet paper and fighting over cans of chickpeas.

So I choose to believe that things are working out for the best. I have everything I need and desire. This is over now. Life returns to normal now and even better than before!  Meanwhile, of course I’m isolating myself and taking precautions.

Are you maintaining a miracle mindset too?
Are you maintaining the frequency of what you desire to be a vibrational match to it?

I know it’s hard to “get there from there” as Abraham Hicks says. In order to come back to peace, we do need to feel our feelings and release them. Otherwise it’s like paving over a dead body.

That’s why I created the Release Your Feelings one-page guide. It’s a 5-minute process that you can even do in a toilet cubicle!

Try it. Share it. Let me know if you do.

I wish you a wonderful restful week and look forward to letting you know about Master Your Mind next week.

Lots of love,

The art of being emotional

IMG_4373

Do you ever feel like your life is great just as it is?  And I don’t mean to say this in a way like ‘hey guys look at me my life’s amazing and you should want that too!’

I mean a quiet contentment, sitting having an almond milk cappuccino at my favourite cafe, feeling love towards the waitresses and appreciating how they smile and are so friendly to the clientele, then going for a walk around my area and just marveling at the sky, the plants, flowers and houses and saying ‘hi’ to the people and animals I pass. The simple things can sometimes be so mind-blowingly extraordinary, don’t you think?

I remember though that I wasn’t always this way for me. I used to compare myself and my life and feel like it and I weren’t good enough. Because I wasn’t there yet. For a while I didn’t know where ‘there’ was. I just knew I wasn’t there. A low grade dissatisfaction. Waiting for certain elements to line up before I could be happy. Not doing the work I wanted to do or having the relationships I wanted to have and being at the mercy of my moods.

And I know I’m not alone in that.

There was a really interesting article this week published in The New York Times online about Medicating Women’s Feelings. I wasn’t too shocked to read that 1 in 4 women are on psychiatric drugs in the U.S.A.

It starts out with “Women are moody” and I’d argue that men are moody too. We’re humans. We have emotions for a reason.

Who wants to be happy all the time? Not me. Sadness feels right and necessary. Anger might spur us into action. Frustration can be a guiding light.

The key really is to be able to feel our emotions and not be hijacked by those voices in our minds that make us do some crazy shit that we regret later when sanity has returned to the village. Or to just stuff down the annoyances until we feel like either disintegrating or exploding.

Know what I mean?

So how do we do that?
We feel our feelings.

When we feel our feelings, we can stay out of the drama and not create unnecessary stress for ourselves.It makes us more powerful and magnetic. Men feel safe around us. We are able to respond to life, rather than react. We don’t have to go around apologizing all the time or burning bridges. We regret less because we blame less. We are able to treat others with respect and feel good about ourselves and we don’t have to be buoyant with happiness to do it. We don’t have to be afraid of our feelings. We only have to feel them.

And this is how that works… The body and mind are separate. The body feels, while the mind interprets (and makes up pretty amazing stories, don’t you think?).

So to feel your feelings you have to get into your body. Take a deep breath and drop your awareness to what’s going on inside. What can you feel? Is there tension? Where is it located? What is the emotion?

We are so used to operating out of our heads that we need practice to know what we actually feel.

Try it now. Try it next time your thumbs get itchy and you feel to impulsively grab your phone. Try it when you are waiting. Try it when you would like to inhale the contents of your fridge. Try it when you are at work. Try it in crisis. Try it on the hour.

Say ‘I feel…’ and not ‘I am…’ because you are not your emotions or your thoughts. Practice saying it all week. I feel… I feel… I feel…

If it’s intense, you can even get down on your knees and surrender totally to it.

Then say to your body, ‘I understand that you are feeling… and that’s perfectly understandable because…’.

Have compassion. Why is it understandable? Your body is like a child that is cranky but doesn’t know it’s hungry. As the parent, it needs your adult mind to interpret its feelings and give it language.

Like, ‘I understand that you are feeling anxious and that’s perfectly understandable because you just had an argument with your partner.’

Or ‘I understand that you are feeling stressed and that’s perfectly understandable because there’s so much to do and you feel worried about money.’

Make it okay to feel whatever you’re feeling. Be kind to yourself.

But then what do you do with the feeling?

Sometimes it’s enough just to feel it.

Most often, like that child, it needs soothing.

What would your adult self say to provide comfort? What’s the reality? Give yourself a pep talk like you’re that perfect dad in an 80s sitcom.

What do you need now?

There’s a big difference between feeling your feelings and acting out impulsively.

When you feel your feelings, unhelpful habits often fall away. You’re less likely to go running for the bag of chips (or whatever your poison is) when you realize that the knot of anxiety in your stomach can be traced back to the email you opened 5 minutes ago.

Once you have felt your feelings, you can respond rather than react.

Do you need a nap? Do you need to communicate more clearly? Do you need to start on a new career path? Do you need some pampering? Do you need a hug? Do you need to move your body? Do you need to learn to train your mind? Do you need to have a conversation? Or to go out and get wasted? (just kidding!)

Feeling your feelings is a practice, a powerful tool, and just like living, an art.

(And p.s. if that fails, forgive yourself and make amends)

This is part of a deeper process that I use with my coaching clients to create the life and career they desire in a way that is connected to their feminine essence and their spirit.

Today is a new moon, a solar eclipse and the spring/autumn equinox so a powerful time to renew and reboot.
