Is the LOVE in your life out of balance ? I’m not talking about with a partner, I’m talking about YOU, how you love yourself ?Do you love yourself or are you just existing within yourself ? Do you accept yourself and your accomplishments ? Do you embrace the learning experiences or deem them failures and allow them to define who you are ?
If you’re not sure how to answer those questions or if you answered yes, then, your love is out of balance ! Sometimes, even to the best people, things happen. When we don’t deal with those things , feel the emotions and work through them, things begin to define us. A failed relationship doesn’t define you, it makes you stronger, it was a lesson taught. Weight gain from having children doesn’t define you, embrace your body and the beautiful gift it gave you. Whatever the situation, every single one of them can and will change if you recognize the love for yourself is out of balance and take action steps to make you feel better about yourself.
The fact is before you can love someone else, before you can find yourself in gratitude mode, you have to love yourself and embrace the person that you really are not the person you invented because of circumstances. That person is an illusion.
While a make over, weight loss, redecorating your sacred space, or a hip new outfit is a stepping stone to making you feel better about yourself, you have to begin to look within. Look at your accomplishments, turn your disappointments into growth experiences, we are all here to learn after all. Begin to focus on the matters of the heart ( inward ) and create goals for all the other things on the outside. Chip away at them a little at a time, accomplishing one after the other. Start with small goals, if you want to lose weight start your goal with wanting to lose 5 lbs and when you do, check it off your list and tell yourself you will lose 5 more. Rinse and repeat. While your looking inward only make a list of the things you like about yourself, from that list, list how you can make those things better. We can always do better. While you focus on the things you like about yourself and create goals on making them better, you’re focused on the positive things , so, there is no room for the negative things to take over as they did before.
It takes an average of 21 days to change habits. Commit to at least that long and you will be surprised at how much changes in your life and how you will want to continue this journey.
Did you know that the Throat Chakra ( 5th Chakra ) is responsible for communication and expression ? Located at the base of the neck, if this Chakra is blocked it can hinder how you communicate, how you express your thoughts or emotions, it can also create fear of public speaking, give you poor listening skills, cause writers block, and even create the inability to discern the truth !
💜A blocked throat Chakra will create negative life issues and even block a person from creative expression, honesty and truth. A blocked throat Chakra can also negatively affect thyroid health, throat, mouth and teeth.
💜 To help open and balance this Chakra you can utilize things like diffusing Chamomile or Eucalyptus essential oils or dilute with a carrier oil and rub on the base of your neck.
💜Herbal remedies of red clover, peppermint and sage are also often used.
💜If your looking for crystal usage you would generally use light blue crystals like blue lace agate, kyanite, Angelite or even Lapis Lazuli.
🦋Personally, I love creating my own little medicine bags that contain herbs, oils and crystals. I lay flat and place the bag on the base of my neck for 10 to 15 minutes.
💜 A selenite wand is also a quick way to release a blocked Chakra by taking the wand in a back and forth or up and down motion over the area until you no longer feel resistance.
Do you need a boost in creativity ? Are you feeling like your energy is drained and your creative juices are not flowing ?
Here is a great affirmation for you today and an amazing crystal that can help in so many areas of your life and business.
" I have an inner light that cannot be extinguished. "
CITRINE HEALING CRYSTAL.
Did you know that Citrine is an amazing crystal for :
💜Clarity and Enlightenment
💜Success and Power
🔮Citrine also carries powers of the sun so it can give you inspiration, increase your energy, raise your vibration and give you the drive needed to finish or start new things. Citrine can also assist with attracting money and Luck !
Carry citrine with you or wear citrine and you will constantly be connected with light. And, the more you carry it with you, the more you and your crystal will create a bond.
Citrine, is also a great manifesting stone and will amplify intentions as you set them.
Associated with the Crown, Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakra's.
You see and hear about it everywhere ; Set an intention and let it go. Oh, if only it was that easy. Setting intentions are powerful, but they are only as powerful as you believe. Setting intentions that do not resonate with you are intentions that you will never release the attachment to, and your vibration will never, ever match your intent, therefor your intention is as good as dead.
Here's an example : You want to manifest more money. So, you set an intention to create $10,000 this month. That's a great intention, but probably a very unrealistic one for someone who has never managed to create $5,000 in a month. See, part of setting an intention is actually believing in the intention and yourself. It is unrealistic to think that you can out of the gate, intend on creating $10,000 a month, when you never set an intention to make $5,000. This intention becomes unbelievable to you and your subconscious already knows it.
When writing an intention it is important to write, write a lot, until the intention written resonates with you. If you write this " I plan on increasing my income to $10,000 this month " you have already set your intention up for failure. Here is why - You must act as though it is already here so a better intention would be " I am so grateful that my income HAS increased to $10,000 this month ". The difference is that you have created an intention that tells the Universe this has already happened and so, the Universe must respond. BUT, if you state this intention with little to no emotion, your vibration does not match the intention and now your intention is less effective, if even effective at all.
Starting small, starting with something believable helps you to create the faith that you need to go big and bigger. Sometimes setting small intentions like " I am receiving money now " is the only intention you need to start your path to successful and believable intentions. Whether you receive a penny, a dime or a free cup of coffee, when you set a believable intention like I just stated, you BELIEVE and when you believe you create a bigger intention with full belief it is happening, because it has already happened.
With every intention there has to be action. Now, I am not saying that you set the intention and then stare at it until it happens. I am saying " Get up and do something ". If your intention is to create love in your life via your soulmate, you could set your intention,but if you sit home declining invitations from friends to go to dinner, Starbucks, the Club or the library, you are being counter productive and miss opportunities. See, the Universe has this really cool way of creating " opportunities " for us to create more income or meet the love of our life ", but if we sit and do absolutely nothing, then nothing happens. While we would all love for the Universe to magically create a hole in our roof and drop our soul mate or a bag of money, then reseal it, it doesn't work this way. Opportunities are created and we have to be willing and able to see them and accept them into our lives. Those little nudges or those little thoughts that pop into our heads, those are the signs from the Universe that they are working FOR YOU to manifest your hearts desire.
I've worked with many Top Producing Real Estate Agents, Businesses & Entrepreneurs, and they all have one thing in common – they are niche specific. Being niche specific not only shows their expertise but often times can catapult their websites and blogs to the top of google search engines, being easily found by consumers,
Photo’s and video’s have taken the web by storm and consumers are enjoying them by the masses. With so many beautiful photo’s of homes, products, services, landscapes, area attractions and the history. Thus, consumers are staying on websites longer, feeding their desires to ” get to know ” a person, place, product or thing they may be relocating to, a product they are interested in or even helping a friend or family member in their preliminary stages of research.
In today’s world of online presence, we can safely say, that consumers have turned to the internet for instant gratification, whether by and through Shopping, Advice and even personal development. A well organized webpage not only benefits you but also the consumer. With new and evolving technology, there are many more resources ” to be found online ” today, than there were several years ago. Becoming a photo expert, per say, in a niche specific field is a great benefit not only to the business but also the consumer.
How effectively are you using today’s technology ? Are you effectively using Social Media strategies to influence your audience ? Many are not. While I understand time is often against us and a memory card can contain hundreds of pictures and video’s. It is vital to your business to organize – delegate and automate, creating a unique, easy to understand guide for any person and/or consumer who visits your webpages. Your webpages consist of not only your website and blog but also include your social media platforms. Take Pinterest for example : it easily organizes photos into specific boards to make followers, fans and those stumbling upon your webpage, easy to interact with. Neatly organized, a person can choose a specific board to learn and understand the specifics of a chosen topic, while through your profile, they get to know you, a creator of the wealth of information you have provided them. The same should hold true for :Facebook – Including Facebook Fan Pages & Groups, Flickr, Google + and more. And, any and all other social media platforms you have created as webpages. Are you effectively organizing, delegating ( assigning ) and automating your photos and video’s ? If not, here are some simple steps to achieving that :
Create Specific Albums for Photo’s/Videos – In other words, stop uploading all of your photos to just one album. Make your photos/video’s stand out by being niche specific. For example : Title, Tag and Describe your albums with keywords such as ( these are only examples, please create albums that are specific ) The name ABC is only a generic name being given...
The list could go on and on – but being more niche specific, allows consumers and the like to easily navigate your webpages & social media in a more organized fashion that truly presents you as not only the niche expert but the niche entrepreneur extraordinaire !
Sometimes, I come to my blog and have no idea what I am going to write. I sit and allow the thoughts and words just roll off of my fingertips. Today, is one of those days. While I have my handy little planner sitting next to me, that displays blog topics and other tasks needing to be performed, I sit here instead and follow the intent of my heart.
Many people do not understand the role of the heart vs the brain. See, our brains are here to protect us. Way back when, when we were younger and started to be conditioned by our parents, society, the news and whomever and whatever that came along, our brain took note of everything. It filed all the information away deep in our thoughts and subconscious what was normal, what was safe, what was real and ultimately what was best for us whether we really believe that or not. In the meantime our hearts were jumping for joy, love, excitement and adventure. Before long our brain and our heart became a battle between each and believe it or not you choose the winner of the battle.
See, our hearts want us to step out and seek new challenges and make new discoveries. Our hearts want us to follow the passion that lies deep within us. It wants to make you kid like again when you believe you could be anything, have anything and do anything. The problem is as soon as this begins to happen our brain goes into fight mode and begins to tell us all the reasons why " It isn't safe ", why we " Shouldn't do that " and how we have children to feed and bills to pay. And, in a sense our brain is 100% correct, but what if, just what if we didn't have to choose a winner ? What if both ... our brain and heart could win ? What if we could play it safe while we stepped into the world of the unknown. In other words : why can't we keep that job we don't love, but pays the bills AND continue to carry out our passion, bringing back the excitement and the joy until our brain agree's with our heart?
Stay tuned for the blog....because I will explain tomorrow how all of this IS possible.
