The last 6 months of my life have been some of the most intense and deeply transformative soul searching, learning, self loving and manifesting. The moment I captured in this photograph last weekend is SO symbolic of me moving into the new space that I have created for myself.
Books, e-courses, blogs, meditations and time on my own have been my tools of choice to truly reflect and prepare my spirit for the BIG disruption I have been manifesting. In my heart, my head and my soul I was ready and willing to bring in something HUGE and shake things up a
Have you ever found yourself in a really comfortable space in your life? The routine is familiar, the days are on repeat and although you are super grateful for all of the blessings you are at the same time living with the sense that something is missing.
Living in the moment is so important, especially as a Mother of a toddler. The moments make up the memories and they allow us to truly experience this precious, sometimes fleeting life. Beyond the moment though, are our hopes and dreams. Calling them in, when we are truly ready, this takes some doing.
Just under 4 weeks ago my life was disrupted in the most insanely beautiful way and soon I will share that story in more detail. For now though I will share the things that I had been doing prior to that fateful time, to bring on the BIG disruption. If you are ready for a big shift in YOUR universe then only YOU are perfectly qualified to BRING IT!!
♡ READ: seriously this is always my #1 and no more so than over the last 6 months. The book that I believe has been the most powerful in bringing about my disruption is Spirit Junkie by Gab Bernstein. Just read it, that is all.
♡ MEDITATE: it does not need to be in India, in an ashram, or high on a mountain top. My meditation practice takes place for minutes at a time when I am blogging, lying in bed, on my balcony, cooking, walking. Simply take the time to listen to your breath, be still, be content doing nothing. Do this for at least 30 minutes every day, full stop.
♡ LOVE YOU: this one matters, big time. If you do not love you why would anyone else love you? Its not rocket science, although at times the effort to achieve self love and acceptance seems harder than rocket science. It has taken me almost 39 years to accept myself, my body, my imperfections and my good bits as a package. I can finally look at myself in the mirror without cringing, criticising and walking away feeling depressed.
♡ LET IT BE: whether you believe it or not, the universe has a plan for your life and trying to control things is only going to cause the wrong type of disruption. Trust in yourself, in others and in your journey. I see so many people living out of desperation, craving an outcome or a change and trying to control how it will manifest. Yes it may seem a little contradictory as I am writing about manifesting, however, manifesting and controlling are two very different ways of going about our lives.
♡ EMBRACE: be grateful, learn to love the life that you are living and stop wishing away the precious moments by always looking at the horizon for something just out of reach. If you are always complaining about being single, not skinny enough, not fit enough, too tired, too busy...these things will never change. Embrace being single, embrace your body, embrace your life - if this is not possible then you need to change something so that you are able to embrace your reality.
♡ LEARN: taking on courses, devouring literature and expanding my knowledge in all areas of life has most definitely contributed to the big shift in my universe. There is a whole world out there beyond our own existence and through learning we develop a sense of achievement as well as a sense of perspective. Learn more so that you can contribute more.
Stay tuned for details of the BIG disruption.
