Your Truth

Q and A Time! Thank you for those of you that have messaged me questions, I’m so grateful. I’ve filmed a handful of these videos answering your questions and will be doing more so keep them coming if you have anything. And, I think the advice offered in this video is applicable to you across many different situations. <3

I got asked a question about how to tell her boyfriend she was pregnant because there is a possibility that he won’t be as happy or supportive as she is about the pregnancy. She’s been living in a state of fear because she is so worried about her boyfriend’s and family’s reactions, that she has lost sight of her own truth- which is that she is overwhelmingly happy to bring this new life into the world. Regardless of how others accept the news, she is in a place of love, joy and gratitude for the pregnancy.

When you are in a place of total trust, you won’t be looking to others for approval. First, get into a place of trusting your timing and trusting your truth. Writing down all the benefits and drawbacks to both situations, so you can make a clear decision. I’m not a big pro/con list type of person but using the clarity from the benefits helps me to be in a state of gratitude. And looking at the drawbacks is a realistic thing to do not as a con, but so that you can communicate your truth effectively to others and not be blindsided later. You won’t know all of them on either side at this point but having some will help you make a real decision.

Amazing things and challenges are going to come out of whatever decisions you make so it’s being real with that and making the decision at this time you feel best with, and that’s most in integrity with your truth and desires.

In order to communicate effectively with others staying focused in your decision and in a place of love you will receive an outcome far grater than acceptance from others, you will have peace and acceptance from yourself. You will have pride in yourself and get the growth necessary to either create a beautiful relationship and go deeper with your boyfriend in this case, or move on with a beautiful new being you have the privilege of brining into the world. Staying unattached to their outcomes, and instead be clear for yourself. Trust you will get the support you need even if you don’t know where it’s coming from.

Get a piece of paper and write out all the things you are terrified of- go deep, get at least 20. Now, list the worst-case scenario. What would really happen if these things came true? What would your life look like? What are you really scared of?

Now, think of everything good that would come from the “ worst” scenarios, write down what opportunities will come your way, will someone show up to support you? What feelings you will get to experience? What will you be grateful for? How you will grow from these things happening in your life? Dig deep, journal and take some deep breaths. Pushing yourself to answer here makes the situations much easier when they present themselves so you can stay grounded and open trusting what’s to come. Can you remember a time in the past when you felt challenged? Felt like you wouldn’t have support? Or were attached to someone specific being there? Who showed up for you? Did you have support from somewhere? (We always do! It’s just about training ourselves to see it quickly and even in advance of feeling less than or victimized.)

Happiness is a choice. While life may not always be sunshine and rainbows, and we all have challenging times when we’re growing, you can still choose to bring a happy, excited, passionate and radiant quality to whatever it is you’re currently doing or going through. There is always more on the other side, and choosing to use your emotional energy in the direction you want to go can serve your goals and your body.

What does communication mean to you? Today, I’ll be asking more questions than usual and I invite you to take some time and answer them for you if you feel called. You may want to share with someone too. I was asked in a yoga class recently how do I show trust/distrust in my communication. That can be whatever it means to us.

I found it really valuable to learn and express my strategies for both trust and distrust. How did I show this in my body language, moving toward or away from myself or someone else? How did I feel worthy and show respect for myself, or a lack of worthiness and respect? We can do this in our thoughts, actions, body language and in relationship to others.

I realized this was something that could really help create more intimacy with an even deeper connection and self-awareness. I know now there’s a way, that I’m attuned to, when I use my body because I’m avoiding feeling something and that through this no matter what I say I’m not communicating my highest truth. Sometimes I can use this as a guide to feel more and express myself. When we’re willing to open and to hearing what may seem inconvenient at times (and yet divinely perfect in its guidance for a new level of being) our life will always expand into more greatness and more self-expression.

Whenever we communicate from hesitation, or fear of feeling less than, that’s also creating distrust and not honoring our higher selves. There’s no reason to make any version of you that shows up wrong or bad. We’re all human and have areas to grow for the rest of our lives. And, when communicating it’s optimal to choose how you express yourself most authentically and lovingly and with an outcome on your truth.

Here are questions to think about today:
Can you remember a time when you were connected and spoke your truth or got an internal knowing?
if so, go back to that time for a moment now and remember, what did you do with your body? What did you say? How did you feel afterwards?
Our intuition is super powerful. In fact, the unconscious is 30,000 times more powerful than our conscious minds so let’s use this to our advantage.

Can you remember a time when you didn’t speak your whole truth to yourself or with someone else?
Did you hold back? Rationalize a knowing out of fear or to make it more convenient so you could get your way?
What had to happen for you to do that? How did you move your body? What internal dialogue did you have with yourself before, during and after the exchange?

I spoke to two women this morning both with the same concern. They’ve been having a tendency to move inwards and feel really isolated and lonely lately. I’ve been seeing this come up quite a lot recently. Whether it’s the feeling life should be somewhere it’s not, coming out of a relationship or reflecting on what’s really next for you in life and in business, these questions cause us to feel separate. Separate from our flow, separate from the place where we can tap into resourceful energy and separate from where we can make our dreams come true.

What helps us to create a shift really comes down to Value. The value you are placing on yourself. You being in a place where you remember, and have an awareness of your greatness. That place where you shine. Placing others on a pedestal, or feeling victimized leads to loneliness and an inability to take action effectively. Where has your value on yourself been misplaced? Where have you been giving others power while devaluing yourself? Where have you not been taking care of yourself?

Here’s a simple three-step process I follow:
1. Make a list of the people and situations you are tolerating that aren’t serving you or you may be becoming resentful of.
2. Write down who you need to have conversations with. Who you may need to write a letter to (whether you send it or not). Get Clear on what needs to be said and have the discussion. One exchange may also be to yourself.
3. Fill yourself up. Stack what you’re grateful for. Stack the qualities you love about yourself. Stack how you love showing up for others. If you’ve been neglecting an area of your health or spiritual practice re-engage with it or create some new habits. If you’ve been trying to control something, where can you surrender and soften? Where can you listen and love more?

I said to a client this morning, it’s not that you need to be upset you’re in this place. There are so many gifts in the sadness and the indulging at times in a closed moment that you take for yourself. We tend to need to take more of that time when we haven’t been focused on self-care and giving our gifts. So it’s your choice how long you stay there. You’ve had your time and you can now choose to remember all your value and people that love you and join the party or you can choose to feel lonely. Once you have the awareness, the ball’s in your court.

When we get sick or need down time we haven’t been consistently nourishing and nurturing ourselves. When you have a daily practice to support yourself and know how to speak your truth to yourself and others your immune system and value will exponentially rise.

Thoughts and Meditation

Whether you’re using your thoughts to consciously manifest something, create a strategy with a higher purpose and outcome or to fill your mind with inspirational and educational material…the mind is an amazing thing. The even more amazing – and yet sometimes surprising - thing is that the more we fill the mind, the more energy you have access to.

Sitting, meditating and getting stressed or frustrated that you’re having thoughts and can’t silence the mind is a never-ending battle, and not the point of meditation. I often hear I’m learning how to silence the ego, or let go of my ego or I’ll know I can meditate “perfectly” when my mind shuts off. This is not the desired outcome of meditation or having quiet time for yourself. The ego is not a bad thing. It just has its limits, and forgets the fact that you are connected to your soul and the infinite in addition to the ego. I get asked questions all the time related to this matter. I used to try and think a lot about what meditation was and if I was doing it right, or having a similar experience to the other people in the room…

Truly, it’s a total gift to be aware and witness your thoughts regardless of when or how they enter. No need to judge the thought, yourself or start looping. Many people judge the ego and their thoughts during the meditation process. If  something you want to remember or a moment of inspiration comes to mind, grab your journal jot it down and continue. I recently had a client call after a mediation and say, ‘I had some thoughts arise today. The first one was an awesome download and something I wanted to remember, then I had two totally negative thoughts and found myself blaming and judging someone else so I stopped the quiet time.’ She asked me how to reset so she could try for a solid session the following today. I found this comment super interesting and not unlike something I’ve also experienced. I’ve found a helpful intention/outcome is to just be with whatever comes, not to have a perfectly executed quiet time where you expect yourself to be super human.

It’s really about finding what serves you best and creating your own experience. There are no rules. There are some helpful guidelines…that’s all. If a thought upsets you just breathe and be with it. Meditation is a practice of cultivating more awareness for you and that looks different for everyone. It’s helpful not to compare yourself to what you think other people are thinking/not thinking and feeling or having some deep experience that you’re not having.

Before going into your practice ask yourself: What is my intention for today? Or for the next 5-10 or 30 minutes? How do I want to feel at the end of this time I’m setting aside? Start with the end in mind and use that to guide you. So if you start getting upset or not feeling good enough, be kind to yourself. Remember how you want to feel at the end and course correct.

The more relaxed and present you can be with all kinds of thoughts the more flexible you will be in life. There is no scarcity in the universe and thoughts are just out there for us to grab onto. Choose to have the highest energy you can in each moment so you can grab onto more useful thoughts and experiences. And remember the thoughts are not your thoughts anyways so might as well just relax, enjoy and observe them :)

Creating and Appreciating Intimacy


Happy Valentines Day!

I think today is such a sweet day of the year. I’ve had some awesome Valentine’s Days, one super difficult one and many spent alone or with some incredible girlfriends. Whatever this year holds for you, love is something we can and should be honoring all year long. We’ve all heard to have more gratitude, be more loving and open, passionate, curious and sexy before. These are ways of being we need to incorporate 365 days a year, not just one day a year. Aside from these super important emotions that yes, are really important here are the three keys I’m most focused on right now and how I cultivate, create and appreciate intimacy.

Whether you’re doing these with your partner or doing this for yourself you can incorporate this week’s self-love tips and still use these three strategies solo.

  1. Be emotionally available and express your needs and get curious about your partners. I also love what John Gottman says about honoring your partner’s bid for connection. The more you move towards your partner the more connection and intimacy is able to be created.
  2. Stack the positives. At night tell each other what you love about one another. Things you’re grateful for that day or memories that light you up. Create a tradition together. Couples that have 80-90% more positives then negatives are much more likely to stay together and be fulfilled. So constantly be asking yourself what can you do to light yourself or your partner up today? Or if you want to really stack the positives ask this question as frequently as you can throughout the day. Maybe you send a thoughtful text, pick something up they love at the market, snap a picture or read an article about their business or topics they love and send them something interesting. Go to dance or yoga class and light candles for when your partner comes home. Fill yourself up so you can have much more to give. And when something is challenging you’ll have lots of awesome positives stacked…and go back to number 1. Don’t miss the opportunities to be even closer when your partner tried to engage you. Or miss opportunities with yourself by shutting down and turning off. Stay present and connected.
  3. Keep creating visions together. Whether it’s a new relationship or one that’s decades old have something compelling that you are both excited to co-create. Find times to connect on this and both continue doing your part to making it a reality. It’s helpful to have visions at different times too. So maybe one is a vacation you’re both excited for, one may be something 2-5 years down the road and one may be the legacy and impact you want to have on the world. The best relationships seem to have lots of shared visions and time throughout the year to get even more associated to them, to plan and schedule the steps to making them come true. You can do this for yourself too across all 7 major areas of life.

Love to hear what you find most useful and any other tips you love…share away in the comments below or pm me with any questions. Wishing you a wonderful love filled day.
