Meditation and Self Love For the Busy Bodies- Day 356: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Hey lovers!

radical self love kelsey grantI’m so jazzed to be a part of the Stillness Project’s launch and share one of my most favourite meditation teachers with you, Tom Cronin. Tom’s intention with the Stillness Project is to bring together one million people to sit in collective stillness and activate their bliss during a live global meditation event!!! Super rad!

 

I’m a huge fan of meditation and I regularly speak about how vitally important meditation is in maintaining a solid self love practice. However, a lot of peeps in our tribe have mentioned they are first time meditators and don’t have a lot of time to spare.

I totally get that.

When I first started meditating the thought of sitting in silence for an undetermined amount of time freaked me out. Not only was my mind a complete circus, my life was super busy and back then investing 20-30 minutes a day into sitting in stillness seemed absurd and completely unrealistic.

Not having enough time is such a common myth when it comes to meditating that my dear friend Tom Cronin created this awesome video to explain his  72/20 Method.  In this free video Tom gets right into the specifics of his technique to support all of you lovers who want to meditate but can’t find the time.

radical self love kelsey grantI know I’m always looking for ways to become more effective with my time, be more productive and just feel great during my day and this meditation technique facilitates all those yummy benefits into my life. Even if you think you can’t meditate this video will help you move through any inner blocks of resistence and guide you to the land of inner bliss. Self love is the journey of cultivating more of these blissful moments by removing our blocks to love. Meditation is a beautiful bridge to allow more love and greatness in.

I wish I had known Tom back in the day when I was struggling to understand and begin my meditation practice, luckily for all you lovers you can take full advantage of his super effective and powerful techniques for meditation beginners and ease into the world of bliss and inner calm.

His technique is so powerful that when practiced it actually creates an abundance of time and space in your day nearly instantly, something I believe we could all benefit from.

If you are interested in joining our global community and participating in a pretty kick ass event, your invitation to join the Stillness Project awaits ya at the end of the video 🙂 I’m so excited about the possibility of one million peeps meditating in stillness at once. One million people connected to their truth, allowing love in and radiating that bliss out into the world has the potential to activate some pretty serious global healing, and that dear friends is a pretty epic thing!

Experiments In Gratitude- Day 337: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Gratitude is one of the major foundational elements of any Radical Self Love practice and it is such a pivotal component of our healing, growth and positive evolution. 

This video was recommended to me by one of my dear friends and fellow RSL member. During our high vibing chat about meditation and the power of gratitude and she shared that this video really left a positive impression and impact on her heart.

Sometimes in this world we need a little extra encouragement or evidence to nudge us in the direction of implementing change. This video is a amazing illustration of the basic science behind the practice of gratitude.

This little experiment warmed my heart to watch and reminded me just how powerful gratitude is and how the expression and sharing of our gratitude has the potential to ripple out massive inspiration and activate love in the hearts of the people we share with.

Share your love, express your gratitude- it will make you happier, science says so after all 😉

What To Do When Tempted To Act Out Old Patterns- Day 336: 365 Radical Self Love Project

It is no secret that the path of Radical Self Love calls us to examine ourselves, our beliefs and our patterns.

radical self love kelsey grantFor the majority of us we have a collection of patterns and beliefs drummed up by our ego’s that have been repeated on automatic default settings in our brains for a large majority of our lives.

Often there is a defining moment in our lives when we are awoken from this unconsciousness and begin to question ourselves, our motivations, our patterns of behaviour and ultimately question who we are and why we are here.

As we begin to dive into the world of self reflection and discovery we begin to see how the functions of our ego have lead us into some less than desirable situations. The ego is rooted in fear and fear never leads us to the path of fulfillment and bliss.

If we truly desire to remember who we are and return to our natural state which is bliss we must consciously examine the behaviours and thoughts of an ego or fear based mind. Once examined we must begin to consciously question these behaviours and thoughts to honestly determine if they are truly serving our highest good. The final stage is choosing better high quality love based thoughts and establishing more empowering behaviours.

When tempted to act out old patterns of the ego here are three questions to bring yourself back to the vibe of possibility, potential and love:

1. What would love do right now?

2. Would love do what I’m about to do?

3. Would love say what I’m about to say?

Then the key is to LISTEN honestly to the answer your inner guidance will give you and act in accordance to this guidance.

Often old patterns are triggered anytime we feel vulnerable, open and our hearts are exposed. The work of RSL is designed to crack open the shells around your heart to open you up to the fullness of love and authentic connection. It is inevitable along this path that when we feel open and exposed the ego will do anything it can to shut down this opening and build the familiar fear walls right back up.

The only one who has the power to dissolve the walls around your heart is you. Dissolving these walls is essential to the manifestation of heart to heart connections with other human beings, to the manifestation of your dreams and potential and to the manifestation of your own self awareness which is the biggest gift of all.

The reason people avoid doing the work is because you can’t un-know something. When we learn these aspects about ourselves and our default ego settings, from that point forward each time the egoic patterns surface and we act on them it becomes a conscious choice. Most people don’t want to be honest and own that they are choosing to act out fears plan instead of their highest potential which is always rooted in love. The only way we can shift these patterns, thoughts and behaviours is through our conscious choice to change and choose love.

It is all up to you, are you open, willing and ready to choose love?

Searching for Security and the Quest For Freedom: The Dance of Relationship Polarities (PART1)- Day 314: 365 Radical Self Love Project

It is a well known fact that in love men and women approach things differently.

For the most part the feminine searches for security and the masculine quests for freedom.

This poses quite the dilemma when it comes to creating harmonious relationship dynamics as what the feminine is searching for pushes the masculine away and what the masculine is searching for pushes the feminine away. Seems like a challenging place to be and if we see it from this level it can seem like both genders are from different planets destined to be at odds forever. This is not the case, to see things differently and elevate our understanding of WHY this dynamic exists, we must elevate our awareness and come into greater alignment with our spiritual essence.

radical self love kelsey grant

So how can we come into alignment, have our conscious and unconscious desires fulfilled and experience harmony in our relationships?

We have to consciously choose to come into alignment with ourselves.

In this two part series I will dive into the juicy world of why women crave security and what we can learn from our masculine counterparts on creating internal alignment. In part two which I will release tomorrow, I will dive into the fascinating domain of why the masculine quests for freedom and what the feminine example can teach the masculine about achieving this search for freedom and create alignment internally.

Ladies listen up:

shiva3What the feminine unconsciously seeks in partnership is security. The feminine wants to feel safe and secure knowing that if the heart is openly given this act of love will be reciprocated and remain consistent and forever. This is a first level understanding of security. It is completely dependant on someone else and if the other person leaves or changes their mind our experience of security is crushed to bits. Not so fun. The next level understanding of security is this:

Knowing that the only true security is the security we cultivate within. This security is rooted in a strong and loving relationship to ourselves and our potential. When we learn to trust ourselves our experience of security flourishes.

One of the most powerful places to learn this massive soul lesson is in the domain of romantic relationships. Until we wake up spiritually, we will always seek out another to fill us up when we have no clue how to do that ourselves. In this circumstance we look to our romantic partner to provide us with an experience of “security”.

When it comes to embracing a conscious partnership we understand that our partners role is not to fill us up- we have to do that ourselves. Our partners role is to lead us into a greater understanding of how we can fill up our cup, leading by spiritual example and illuminate the areas in our lives where we are called to grow and expand.

How the Sacred Masculine leads the Divine Feminine to an expanded experience of wholeness and completeness.

If our collective soul growth as the divine feminine is to understand security and there isn’t a better example than to look to the sacred masculine. This is really good news lady loves as the masculine is a fabulous example of directing our awareness towards increased security, stability and grounding in truth- spiritually speaking.

The masculine energetically represents structure and the pillars of foundation. In real life this plays out generally like this:

Guys are usually pretty clear who they are, where they are going, what works for them, what doesn’t work for them and are for the most part are really solid in standing in this awareness and taking action in alignment with this knowingness. As women when we are tapped into these energies within ourselves, we are nourishing the sacred masculine within. It is in this discovery of self and knowingness of who we are that we begin to unearth and cultivate the feeling of security.

When we are constantly changing our minds, who we are and what we stand for (which is the energetic nature of the feminine) this unconsciously develops an untrue idea that the outside world can’t be trusted. A deep unconscious belief of this nature ultimately leads to activating and playing out a fear that we are unsafe. If we feel unsafe you better bet we are not feeling secure.

How do we heal this?

radical self love kelsey grantThis is one of the most magical aspects of the masculine feminine dynamic. The answers to the underlying lesson the feminine is called to learn is accessed through the example of the masculine and the answers to lessons the masculine is called to learn comes through the example of the feminine.

 

 

To spiritually evolve and come into greater alignment the feminine will draw inspiration from our masculine counterparts. We utilize the ways in which they come into knowing their truth, how they know what they stand for and the ways in which they maintain structure, stability and being anchored into who they are.

Then, we ask for help. We ask our spiritual brothers to lead the way to teach us how to become more internally stable. Our nature as the divine feminine is naturally free, changeable and all over the place and so if we want to thrive we must put any ego-ic guards down to sleep, embrace our humility and understand there is everything sacred about allowing the Sacred Masculine to lead us in the direction of becoming more balanced and really understanding our wholeness.

This is and always will be an inside job. The feminine’s ability to cultivate security resides in her willingness to honour and claim both polarities within her. It requires her to honour the masculine energies within and allow those structures for stability provide her with the security she is so deeply seeking. Our search for security is only a search for our wholeness- the merging of our masculine and feminine aspects within.

If any of these ideas about surrendering spiritually activates feelings of resistance, my invitation to you is to examine that resistance very closely. To examine this you will have to elevate your perspective and energy. When your vibration increases the stories around the resistance dissolve naturally and in this space of calmness we become open and receptive to really hear what is being said.

The longer the masculine and feminine are at war energetically with each other the longer peace, serenity and spiritual wholeness will elude us.

radical self love kelsey grantBoth the masculine and the feminine have EQUAL parts to play in each others evolution. As much as the masculine will lead and teach the feminine, the feminine will lead and teach the masculine. Men and women who put down the battle gear and surrender into this wisdom will be gifted with an awareness of their wholeness. With this awareness comes true peace of mind, happiness and you guessed it, Love.

Spiritual surrender is a cornerstone of any conscious partnership.

For those of you who have a desire to have a relationship where you are totally seen, understood, fulfilled, bursting at the seams with happiness, cherished, appreciated and loved in all the fantastical juicy ways you deserve- the path of conscious love is awaiting you to show up.

Show up for yourself, fill your cup and ladies its time to look to our spiritual brothers through the lens of compassion, curiosity and an openness to learn how to come into greater alignment with our inner masculine. If we ask the right questions, keep our senses acutely attuned and open our hearts to learning HOW to cultivate security and stability through the example of the Sacred Masculine- which is the dominant energy in EVERY man on this planet- we will embark on a powerful journey of self awareness, self empowerment, wholeness and the cultivation of divine love.

In tomorrows post I will be diving into the wonderful gifts the feminine has to teach to the masculine about his quest for freedom through her juicy example, so sit tight for those wisdom nuggets babes.

The Beauty of Trust- Day 308: 365 Radical Self Love Project

First of all big ups and  thanks to my friend Matt Corker for posting this on his blog yesterday. If you wanna see his original post you can do so HERE. Matt is an incredible human and I would highly suggest checking out what he is up to 🙂

Now onto the post for today. This video below is all about TRUST and why it is worth it.

As someone who has experienced breaks in trust in vary capacities throughout life I have sometimes struggled with opening to trust again. When a betrayal takes place the automatic response for most, myself included is to shut down. Doing so in the mind of the ego reduces the chances of being hurt or betrayed again. However our shutdown hearts are what often causes the experience to manifest again and again.

A shutdown or closed heart does not vibrate very high on the energetic frequency scale. As per law of attraction we attract what we are, we attract what we are vibrating. Our emotions will often give us very clear insight into where we are rockin on the vibes scale. A closed heart goes along with all the not so great feelings of anger, frustration, anxiety, upset and more reasons to withhold trust. When we activate these vibrations repeatedly within our bodies and minds our energy fields begin to pull in people and experiences which are a compatible match for the vibes we are putting out.

If we want to change the result we must change ourselves.

To keep the positive vibes flowing we must learn to embrace a breech of trust from a new elevated perspective. When trust is broken we are being granted one of the most precious opportunities our spiritual paths will offer us- the opportunity to forgive and move forward more open and more brilliant than ever before. I like to think of it as a spiritual crossroads, when trust is broken I can either shut down my heart and take on the idea that people are shit and no one in the world can be trusted OR I can adopt the perspective that everyone is doing the best they can with the tools they have access to, that the Universe is friendly and its for me, and that anything I judge as wrong or bad about another is leading me to a greater understanding of what still requires healing within me.

If we want to go even deeper we can begin to look where in our own lives have we betrayed ourselves, broken our own trust in ourselves? I have found that anytime something manifests in my outward life it is a direct mirror to something within me that is ready to be looked at and healed through the lens of love. In my most recent experience of betrayal and broken trust- I chose to look within to find where I first betrayed myself and then I got to work on healing that area. That area was my self love. I had been giving up so much of myself I had become completely confused at who I was and where I stood in life. The outward betrayal in my relationship was the mirror for me to go within. My ability to trust again resided in my ability to trust myself first.

open-your-heart

Broken trust is never an easy thing but it is the ultimate soul test- will you allow it to shut down your heart which ultimately means shutting down the beautiful gift that is you, or will you allow it to crack you open and shine your brilliance even brighter?

The key to moving through a break in trust is to allow yourself the space and permission to process for as long as you need, when you are ready, forgive (a shift in perception from fear to love), then quest to identify the blessing and in your time and in your own way release it.

Keep sharing, keep opening and keep trusting. The world is a beautiful place and people deep down just want to be good- sometimes tho they need a powerful example to follow.

Enjoy this video on the beauty of trust and why it is totally worth it!

Causing Pain or Causing Happiness: Wisdom From My Yoga Mat- Day 284: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Today at the yoga studio we are practicing the spiritual law of Karma, other wise known as cause and effect.

For every action there is an impact, a seed is planted with every thought, feeling and action we take. Those seeds will at some point be the cause of an effect. All situations in our lives can always be traced to the originating thought, feeling and action whether it be positive or negative.

radical self love kelsey grant

My dear friend and fabulous instructor said something at the end of class that really struck a chord with me. She heard this from one of her teachers growing up and I felt it had incredible significance for me right now. She said:

“We either make decisions that cause pain or decisions that cause happiness”.

I reflected on this in a few ways.

First I reflected being the cause of an effect in another person. Every interaction I have with someone holds the opportunity to either cause them pain or cause them happiness. Certainly in my past I’ve made crap loads of decisions that absolutely lead to the experience of pain in someone else. I’ve also made a tonne of choices that lead to the experience of happiness in someone else.

With this increased awareness I really have brought this question to the fore front of my mind when it comes to my interactions with another: “Is what I am about to do or say going to cause an experience of pain or happiness- either immediately or in the future?

This simple check in with myself allows me the conscious space to be acting from a place of integrity, honesty and respect.

The second way I reflected on it was more personal. I reflected that every thought, feeling or action I take has the potential to either cause me a future experience of pain or happiness. It has become very clear to me over these past few weeks of deep heart healing and soul work that I have been engaging in a major addiction to negative obsession (more on this in a future posty post). These obsessive thoughts I’ve been “indulging” in have lead to the effect of feeling shit, anxious and fearful- which is not good for anyone, especially me.

radical self love kelsey grant

Inside of this super clear ahhh haa! moment today I can see how my insecurities have been rooted in the choices of thoughts, feelings and actions I was taking. This ultimately is the cause of my pain (even though it was an unconscious behaviour, the choice still lead to the pain).

Now the unconscious has been made conscious and I’m already beginning to see a shift. I “outed” myself to a couple girlfriends today and I also told this truth to my partner. Doing so reduces my access to indulge in these patterns. When we share our awakenings and awarenesses of our patterns to our close peeps they generally don’t give us space to keep running them, because they see us as someone who is capable of overcoming this layer of growth.

So here I am tonight “outing” myself to all you beauties. My major shift will be happening inside- in the ways in which I think, feel and act towards myself and my relationship. The self awareness muscle I’ve built when it comes to others and understanding the future impact I am responsible for with them, will serve me greatly in taking on this new area of internal transformation. I will keep you all posted on this internal journey as I have a feeling this one hold a pretty massive treasure inside 🙂

Mega gratitude and love to my soul sisters who held space for me today, for my soul family who always has my back, to my incredible, patient and loving partner who always calls me to be greater and step into my brilliance, and for each and every one of you beautiful souls part of this self love movement- you all make this world such a brighter place through your awareness, willingness to step into love and your ability to move forward fearlessly.

You are all amazing in my eyes and I love you dearly!

The 5 Step Guide To Get You Back To Feeling Good- Day 248: 365 Radical Self Love Project

There has been a common theme among all the client sessions I’ve had today-

“How do I get back to feeling good when I feel so crappy?”

I figure if this showed up for all these peeps chances are a lot of you are wondering the same thing, so I am going to share with you some key practices to getting back into the good vibe!

Radical self love kelsey grant

The 5 Step Guide To Get You Back to Feeling Good

1. Stop resisting where you are right now.

What we resist persists and what we fight we strengthen. The first and most important step to getting back to goodness is accepting the present as it is right now. Own what you are feeling even if it’s shitty. The moment you come into acceptance of what is so in the moment you allow yourself the energetic, mental and emotional space to create something new. It all starts with being honest with yourself.

2. Find your outlet to get all your excess energy out.

When we allow the not so good vibes to fester we run the very high possibility of snowballing into the world of downward spiralling. To approach this common pattern with love you will have to establish a way that works for you to get your excess energy out. When you are feeling frusterated, angry, upset what is your physical outlet to blow off that steam? Daily exercise is a great way to get these icky vibes out when they present themselves and it’s a long term solution to having them show up less frequently and certainly less intensely. Dancing, running, yoga anything that gets your body active and your heart rate up and your sweat on is ideal.

3. Stop hanging around with jerks.

Make a radical self love declaration to only keep around people in your life that bring out the best in you and you in them. Positivity, authenticity and compassion are key when making the social circle YES list.

4. Stop giving yourself permission to avoid doing things that will make you feel good, keep you in alignment and keep your vibes high.

The more we listen to our excuses the less results we see. Simple truth. If you want to be happier it is actually all up to YOU. If you keep doing things that make you feel crappy, or avoid doing the things you know will bring massive positive change  your way then the actual truth is you don’t really want to be happy. You most likely like the idea of being happy but are more committed to staying stuck that taking the actions that will get you there. Instead, if you are really committed to being happy, every time you come up with an excuse of why you shouldn’t do something you know will make you feel better, acknowledge it, and make the choice to do it anyway. Thank your excuse for sharing and remind yourself that happiness is a result of the actions, thoughts and feelings you call forth within yourself.

5. Make a go-to short list of things that raise your vibes.

Often when we are in the pit of self dispair we have short term memory loss and conviently forget what we could do that would raise our vibes and get us back into alignment (sneaky sneaky ego tricks). Make a list when you are clear and feeling good of the things you know to do to raise your energy and your vibes. For example my list consists of: listening to Keith Urban, looking a pictures of kittens or puppies, going for a walk and petting dogs on the street, snuggling an animal, watching the pure joy and laughter of a little human, meditation, watching episodes of The Awesomeness Advantage and the list goes on. The point is when we have this list we don’t give ourselves any room to default to our excuses which is a beautiful thing.

It’s ok to feel it all- just let yourself come back up for air.

radical self love kelsey grantIt is important to note that feeling, sad, low, and angry are all legit experiences of the human condition and we are meant to feel them to some degree in our lives. The purpose of this article and these suggestions is to support you in coming out of those phases quicker, to bring more awareness to why you are experiencing those feelings and how you can constructively learn from them- aka coming back up for air. There is also a distinction to be made here about experiencing a healthy dose of contrast and wallowing in our darkness.

Healthy Dose of Contrast VS Wallowing in Self Pity.

I personally believe the challenging times are the times when our greatest gifts are delivered to us- in the disguise of a challenge, hurt, upset, betrayal ect. Grief is a very important human expression and we must give ourselves permission to feel it all. We must also give ourselves permission to not be consumed by the temptation to wallow or spiral out of control with negative emotion.

radical self love kelsey grantI imagine since you are here reading this you are one of the beautiful humans who has incarnated this time around to beam more love and blessings into the world. This will mean you certainly will have your ups and downs throughout your lifetime and what makes your path a one of love is choosing to bring higher consciousness, deeper awareness and more freaking happiness into your experience!!! 😉

It is your divine birthright to be happy- let yourself go there and let yourself feel it all- especially the good stuff. You are worth it after all!!

Stop Shoulding on Yourself and Get Into Divine Harmony In Love- Day 239: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Dropping the should and entering the world of relationship harmony and inner peace.

Something I am really present to tonight is how truly powerful we each are in creating our experience of being alive.

Couple Meditating at Spa

As I pondered what the relationship post would be for tonight it struck me in a wave of life synchronicity. I was driving to pick up my partner from his course tonight and the stream of consciousness began. The topic of “should” had come up in my meeting tonight and it got me pondering:

Who would I be without my story of how it should be?

I would be at peace, I would be present and I would be in flow.

With this answer in mind I began reflecting on a situation from today. This afternoon I sent my man a beautiful note of appreciation and gratitude. He responded with a lovely text and only moments after reading it the “shoulding” began.

I without conscious thought began casting judgement on his response and convincing myself that he didn’t mean what he said and that his response was robotic and detached.

Then I caught it.

I turned it around on myself.

I asked myself, “where in our relationship had I responded to a kind gesture with a lack of enthusiasm or more accurately from a space of withholding the depth of my gratitude?”

Why it had just happened yesterday.

He showered me with the gift of a beautiful card and I could barely capture any other words but thank you. I was deeply moved and felt so connected but I kept that to myself for fear of looking silly or over emotional. I didn’t own my truth and I certainly didn’t communicate to him how deeply grateful I was for that gesture.

Next reflection how could I see this differently? What would it be like if I knew his response was enough?

As I drove, I began telling myself a different story about his response:

“It was loving”

“It was honest”

“He responded in the most authentic way possible given the circumstances of his night” (he was on a day long seminar).

As I repeated these new stories to myself on my drive the next light ahead would turn green. I had no stops, no roadblocks no obstacles to interrupt my flow the entire drive there.

214098-harmony

It was a beautiful lesson which couldn’t have been more perfect.

When we dwell in the best case scenario we open up to divine flow, life becomes easy, simple, fun, exciting and best of all it feels good.

The universe spoke to me in the form of traffic lights. With every positive creation I made the light turned green- I was in flow.

By the time I arrived at the destination I felt at peace, present and super connected to the blessing and divine gift he is in my life. Pretty freaking magical.

What and who would you be without the disempowering story?

Let yourself go there. Dwell in that creation that all best case outcomes are possible and more importantly the best case scenario is your reality. For what we think we create.

Dropping the shoulding and picking up the positive creation feels oh so gooooood and darling beauty you are incredibly worth it all.

Giving Ourselves Permission To Change- Day 231: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Giving ourselves permission to change.

If I had to say there was a dominant theme to this week this would be it.

It has shown up with my clients, it has shown up within the RSL community, the RSL 30 Day Program peeps and it has shown up in me.

Giving ourselves permission to change.

I read an interesting passage this afternoon about health, it stated that approximately 30% of people who are sick actually listen to their doctors advice on how to get better. This got me thinking about how most people go through life addicted to their pain, defined by their problems and completely unwilling to change who they are all the while expecting the world around them to change instead.

images

Why are so many people who are sick unwilling to do what it takes to heal?

My assumption is that people are willing to stay sick for a few reasons:

change-is-the-essence-of-life-be-willing-to-surrender-what-you-are1. It ensures they maintain the attention of those around them. Think about it. When you are sick you become the centre of attention. People dote on you, they take care of you, they design their lives around you to make you feel better. The ego loves this and is simply not willing to let go of being the centre of attention.

2. Allows people to avoid responsibility. When we are unable to set boundaries, say no or take responsibility for ourselves and our lives we can attract sickness as a way to say no. It gives us an out and we never really have to tell the truth or approach the discomfort of saying no to someone or something.

3. We never have to get real about what is really at the root of our imbalance. This shows up when we treat the symptoms in order to manage the dis-ease instead of doing the internal work to heal. When this happens it is a clear indication that there is an unwillingness to actually feel good. This is the addiction to pain. It is another avoidance mechanism this time to addressing the cause of the imbalance. As humans we have become so removed from the potential we have to feel incredible that we have settled for a quality of life that isn’t exactly comfortable or enjoyable.

Why is this relevant or important to a self love practice?

The ways in which this applies to self love are simple. When we are on the journey of loving ourselves more we will be faced with all the ways in which we haven’t been loving towards ourselves, the places where we must heal to move forward fearlessly and the habitual patterns of behaviour that really only serve one purpose- to keep us stuck.

We become aware of the ways we “get” attention, our patterns of avoidance and our coping mechanisms for our lives. It allows us to take a look at these behaviours from a place of love and compassion.

We all have the capacity to transform and change- the first step is our willingness.

It doesn’t matter if it’s our health, relationships, money, career, soul path what ever area of life we are focused in on these dominant patterns of the ego are going to show up.

How we do anything is how we do everything.

It is when we are ready, able and willing to shine some light on them that the true space for transformation blooms.

The path of Radical Self Love is our own inner journey to awareness. When we are aware of what we do to get attention we can address the underlying needs not being met and design healthy and effective ways to make sure we are receiving what we need. We get to become our own best friends. It is a truly magical process.

Making Some Music: Lovin On Life- Day 230: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Over the past couple days I’ve really been feeling the music creative vibes.

190400_194687870565419_7931144_nThese past few months in all honesty have been directed to other creative energies and my music has really taken a back seat. Now that I have completed on some major milestones and accomplished some kick ass completions my creative music vibes seem to have come back full tilt.

Every day this week I have picked up my guitar and jammed. I learned a few new songs this week and out of my new learning sparked some original music beginning to form.

What I’ve really learned over the past few months is how everything is in a state of divine flow. Sometimes we will really be vibin on one area of our lives and then as the energies of life shift and change so do our areas of focus and interest.

I really could have been hard on myself and gone into a disempowered state of comparing my musical creativity of the past few months to how it has been in the past few years (over the past few years I have been consistantly writing new music and performing live regularily). However, I have done enough Radical Self Lovin to know entertaining that train of thought does not serve me in any way shape or form.

What does serve me is acceptance and awareness.

Awareness that my creativity is still at an all time high it has just been redirected into a different area for the time being and acceptance that my creative energies going into these other areas of creation are the perfect places for them to be.

When I give myself permission to be exactly where I am at I immediately experience a flush of inner peace. If I have a belief that I always have to be making music that is a self generated thought creation. I can just as easily alter my thoughts to embrace the ebb and flow of life. This allows me the freedom to be and the freedom to express my creative energies in the ways in which I feel most called to moment to moment.

I have to say there is something truly fulfilling and magical for me about making music. I’m stoked to be working on this new tune and I’m even more excited to share it all with you beauties soon!

Remember this tonight lovers, where ever you are right now is perfect. You are perfect, whole and complete just as you are. If you are happy keep doing what you are doing, if you feel that something is missing, start making some empowered and conscious changes. Your happiness is in your hands, it always has been and it always will be.

Radical Self Love to the MAX!!!
