The 1 Simple Step To Take You From Crappy to Happy In A Flash- Day 341: 365 Radical Self Love Project

We all feel crappy sometimes- it’s a normal aspect of the human experience.

Contrast helps us gain more and more clarity into what we truly want and can be consciously used to direct our lives in a more on purpose direction. If these downward spirals of the ego are left unattended for too long, we may find ourselves trapped in what seems like an unchangeable state of upset and despair.

In those times of feeling super low, choosing better thoughts or curbing the negative self talk is often quite challenging. So how can you move from one of these moments of energetic lowness to a higher vibrational state?

The 1 Simple Step To Take You From Crappy To Happy

Perform a random act of kindness for a stranger or someone with whom you do not expect anything from in return.

radical self love kelsey grant

When we act out a physical action of unconditional kindness towards another being it immediately reconnects us with our truth. It reminds us, ever so slightly of our interconnectedness with one another and our true nature which is love.

When we perform a selfless act of kindness towards someone else we take the focus off of ourselves. To step up the vibration scale this must happen. Staying trapped in the musings of the ego happens because the focus is all on you and the unfair or painful circumstance  you are experiencing. The ego loves this attention. It feeds off it. When we go into the space of being of service or a positive contribution to anyone other than ourselves we elevate our vibration, because to do so requires us to step out of the dramatic stories of the ego, expand our awareness to another persons needs and recalibrate with love.

To receive love we must first give it away freely.

A simple gesture of opening the door for someone, holding the elevator, smiling at a stranger, giving a nice compliment to someone who momentarily crossed your path- anything that takes the immediate focus off the ego drama and into making a strangers life a little better, will immediately send a surging of positive emotion through your body. When this happens our truth is triggered and we remember if for a second the essence of who we are- love.

The next time you are feeling crappy- embrace the world and do something kind for someone. The more consistent you are in your practice of random acts of kindness the more expansive your heart becomes. Inside this expansiveness we re-establish our connection to each other, to the world and most importantly to ourselves- our true selves that is 😉

Go be kind and watch with a keen eye to witness your circumstances improve.

Divine Compensation and Abundance Consciousness: A Workshop For Artists, Musicians and Actors- Day 286: 365 Radical Self Love Project

When one door closes another one opens.

Last month I made the big decision to stop our local monthly RSL workshops. It was a choice I didn’t make lightly. My inner guidance had been encouraging to make the move and there was a part of me that was really resistant- after all I love teaching and I love facilitating a live session. Magic happens when people are in the same room, absorbing the same information and creating the space of inspiration and growth to emerge.

Listening to my inner guide means trusting even when things don’t make sense.

I couldn’t see why at the time I was being redirected out of those workshops but I trusted it was for my highest good and the highest good for all involved. After holding strong in my faith and positive belief it is becoming more clear why that shift has taken place.

First and foremost it allows me to make the transition from teaching primarily from the context of “self love” and shift towards my passions which are relationships. I freaking love love. I have been obsessed with relationships and love my entire life. My path here is to support people in co-creating incredibly and fulfilling relationships. The foundation for this spiritual love, intimate love and romantic love is always rooted in self love—ahhhh it’s all making sense meow;)

Additionally as a musician I have a strong pull to support artists in getting their talent and gifts out in the world which means getting out of their own way. Getting out of their own way means building the confidence. What is at the core of confidence? You guessed it self love.

Getting to the Core of Confidence: Divine Compensation and Abundance Consciousness for Artists, Musicians and Actors

I’ve been asked by a local actors studio to come in an facilitate regular workshops for the acting, musician and artistic communities teaching confidence, self love and divine compensation. It is such a incredible manifestation and merging of all my areas of passion. What I love most about this opportunity is that it was born out of my young adult RSL Mentorship Program.

radical self love kelsey grant

Giving and Receiving

Once a year I choose one person to work with closely, share wisdom and support for 6-12 months depending on their journey. This year I am working with the brilliantly talented Brittney Grabill. Brittney is an actor and incredibly talented musician who has a deep desire to positively impact the world through her art. I see massive potential in her and it’s been such a blessing watching her grow and thrive this past year.

The final phase of our mentorship is group and public facilitation. There is no better way to learn how to do something than jumping in and learning on the court. We designed an opportunity where she would be able to step up and co-facilitate a workshop while still being able to observe and take in my teaching style and developing her own from my example.

This ongoing workshop series is a result of our co-creation and I am so proud to be working along side her. The next workshop is scheduled for April 17th here in Vancouver. For all you local cats here are all the event details if you want to join in the fun!

RSL Feature Friday- Jump For Joy! Photo Project- Day 280: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Oooooh It’s Radical Self LoveFeature Friday time loves!

radical self love kelsey grantToday I have the honour and pleasure of introducing you all to the amazing and so beautiful (inside and out) Eyoälha Baker the founding Goddess of the Jump for Joy! Photo Project

I was blessed to be featured in her amazing project a little bit ago. My experience shooting my feature was so amazing. It was the first time the two of us had met in person and right from the second we met up we were on a hilarious adventure. It was like meeting up with a soul sista, so natural, hilarious and playful.

 

I absolutely adore her and I am so excited to share her and her radiance with you all today. Eyoälha is one of those people who just radiates happiness, creativity and youthful energy. Her playful approach to our shoot made it so easy to relax and rock out in the creative flow which I completely appreciate and love about her.

radical self love kelsey grant

Why we love Eyoälha:

She is a burst of positivity, joy and truly embodies the spirit of her project: Jump for Joy. She is travelling around the globe capturing the joy of the human spirit while in mid air jumps. It’s pretty incredible first off that she is doing this project. Her desire to capture joy in the human spirit, calls joy forth in people. We love that she is the clearing for this type of positive joyful self expression and this is why we have chosen her today.

Eyoälha is our featured RSL member today because she knows first hand that if she wants to see joy in others she must first embody it.

Her natural jovial state is intoxicating in the best possible way. She is so captivating in her natural beauty that people can’t help but smile and enjoy themselves when they are around her.

radical self love kelsey grant

The world can always use more happiness and joy and she is a beautiful messenger and lightworker who call this beauty and joy forth in people. Eyoälha’s commitment to live a positive life is incredibly inspiring and I am blessed to call her my friend. She is like the big sister I never had- soft, understanding, compassionate, silly, playful and so clear on who she is and the direction of her life.

radical self love kelsey grantEyoälha understands that self love to her is all about connecting inward and honouring her intuition. As a hyper creative individual she really gets the importance of staying true to herself and to put as much love and care into herself as she does into others. This is why she is so fabulous at creating the expression of joy within her work and photography.

Eyoälha wishes to leave a legacy of inspiration and encouragement for people to truly jump in and follow their truth and their dreams. By constantly facing her own fears and living her dreams she gives others the permission to do the same. She is here to help us all remember what it means and feels like to be alive, awake and have incredible amounts of fun in the process of creating our dreams into reality. This dear friends is a beautiful legacy to leave and I can tell you all with full certainty that this woman is living her legacy full out and that makes my heart happy and makes her a most wonderful example of greatness to us all.

She reminds me of the value of exploration, travel and having loads and heaps of fun along the way which is always a fabulous reminder when life can get a little serious or heavy. Her brilliant bright light is a gift to us all and I am so honoured to spotlight her amazingness today!

radical self love kelsey grant

Her mission to travel the world taking fun photos of creative, passionate people jumping for joy and create a book with 1000 photos of joyful jumpers is pretty epic! She truly wishes to showcase the importance and influence of joy and positive perspective in our lives. She feels the more people nourish joy and make it a priority in their own lives, the more it will inadvertently have an effect on others as well. By making the conscious choice to focus on viewing life in a positive uplifting way the more our lives as whole will be uplifted- we couldn’t agree more

Inspired Chats, Yoga and Great Friends = Awesome Night Day 270: 365 Radical Self Love

Today I spent 5 hours at my yoga studio and loved every minute of it.

I kicked off my time with a delicious hot yoga class. I had a new instructor who was absolutely divine. It was my first experience of a mentally relaxing hot class. She was so fabulous.

Then I began my volunteer/karma shift. I show up for 4 hours a week to work in the studio in exchange for yoga. It’s pretty rad.

cyc-vancouver03

As the evening unfolded a bunch of friends appeared and I was blessed with having inspired and love filled chats with each of them. I feel so blessed and honestly a little tired from such a energy packed night, but over all deeply blessed that all of my friends are such beauties!

Keeping this post really simple and really short so I can go and rock some self love relaxation time after a super long and rad day!

Today was such a great reminder of how lovely it is to take the time to really connect heart to heart with friends and acknowledge them for who they truly are.

RSL weekly challenge:

For the next 5 days give a heart to heart acknowledgement to someone precious in your life. Let them know who they really are to you- it will make all the difference in their world and the ripple of love and goodness will be cast.

Vancouver ManTalks- An Epic Success For My Partner And Our Relationship- Day 264: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Well last night it happened- the first ever round of  “ManTalks” took the stage here in Vancouver and it was a brilliant success.

The premise for this event is to support men in establishing communities of fellow high vibin, conscious and awake men.

Women have these networks all over the place- we are natural connectors. It’s now time to support our male friends, partners, brothers, fathers in creating more masculine networks that are based in the vibration of authenticity, vulnerability and real rawness.

Human beings are freaking masters of illusion. We are so good at putting on the “I’m fine- everything is perfect” mask. When we do so we run the risk of loosing the opportunity to truly connect with each other and experience the bliss of human heart connection.

For this connection to happen we gotta let down our guard, we have to allow ourselves to be seen and we have to open up and be vulnerable enough to let the stuff we would rather keep hidden be shared from a place of power, possibility and evolution.

photo 2This is what ManTalks is all about, creating the environment for men to dive into the fabulousness of community, of their vulnerability and ultimately of their humanity. I am so freaking thrilled of how the first event went. The speakers were all incredible and set the tone for a really incredible community to begin to unfold and the opening of such a significant cultural conversation to begin.

I’m so proud of my warrior man who by sharing his truth, his vulnerability and leadership has called this same gift out of some pretty incredible men in this Vancouver community. I also really dig that it’s an open space for women to come to watch and connect with men who are diving in and leading by conscious example.

I think its so easy for us as a collective female gender to formulate stereotypes about men or ideas about their ability to open, be real and be raw. I quite enjoyed the sharing, the stories and the inspiration that came out of each of them and as a woman I am thrilled to watch a community of like minded and like hearted men (and women) take shape.

This is a massive win for our collective human family. One step closer to harmony, unity and ultimate love connection!

RSL Feature Friday- Alex Echols One Life Brand- Day 259: 365 Radical Self Love Project

WAAHOOOO!!! It’s Radical Self Love‘s Feature Friday time love faces!

Radical Self Love Kelsey GrantToday I get the super awesome pleasure of introducing you all to the incredible and beautiful soul Alex Echols.

Alex and I connected first through an event I work each year called Awesomeness Fest– he was one of our delegates last year in Bali and from there our paths crossed. As a fellow Afester I knew we would share a lot of common ground as all peeps in the Afest tribe are up to some pretty inspiring and impactful work in the world- it’s one of the requirements! Since getting to know Alex over this past year he certainly had surpassed my expectations of a human doing incredible heart centred and inspired work for this world.

1lifelogocircleAlex is the creator of One Life Brand Co and the editor atOne Life Momentum. A few months back he so graciously brought me on as a guest contributor for his site. It was my great honour to support him in what he is up to and help spread messages of positivity and inspiration into the hearts of the masses.

This is what Alex does day in day out. His personal philosophy is to make the most of each moment and the most of each day in order to live life to it’s fullest potential.

Why we love Alex:

As a member of RSL Alex deeply understands the importance of self care first and foremost. He gets that in order for him to show up for life, show up for his community and to lead by inspired action, his tank needs to be full first. Self care and self love is first on the list of to-accomplish every day for this man. He stars his day before the sun rises, heads to the gym for a high vibin workout, follows it up with some solo quiet time, meditation and gratitude. Sounds very similar to our RSL am routines!

Radical Self Love Kelsey Grant One Life Momentum

To begin every day like this takes something. It takes dedication and it takes being connected to something greater than ourselves. If we are just getting up every day for us the motivation fades, but when we get up every day and invest in ourselves in this manor because we KNOW it is going to increase our ability to positively serve others, bring the energies of positivity and love into the awareness of others and to really make a solid impact on the world- the inspiration of that knowingness calls us to get up and show up. Alex is one of these people who really understands this on a massive level and practices this in real time.

We love that he has made the conscious connection between his ability to be a powerful positive contribution and taking care of himself first and foremost.

Why Alex is our Featured RSL Member today:

We LOVE what he is up to with One Life. He currently has 4 different key parts to his company and all of them beautifully fit our mission of being a positive contribution and doing what we can to make this world a more beautiful, open and love filled place to be.

The first being the work he does with start ups and for-benefit entrepreneurs to create purposeful and effective marketing for their companies AKA helping peeps who have an incredible message get it out in the world.
2. Being the editor or One Life Momentum he has created a space for a community of inspired writers to come together, share insights, wisdom and perspective with peeps all over the world.
3. Rocking the nutrition and fitness coaching and training to support peeps with getting their bodies into a state of harmony, strength and health. LOVE it!
4. Creating One Life Merchandise which allows peeps to align themselves with a powerful and uplifting mission “to live their dreams and inspire others to do the same”.

Radical Self Love Kelsey Grant One Life Brand

All four aspects of Alex’s company are so incredible and a true heart contribution to this world. We love his personal mission to inspire people to be their greatest selves and that their dreams are valid and they have within their reach anything they can dream possible. We love that he is infusing this mission into his company and into the way he lives his day to day life.

A huge element of Alex’s ability to be this support and do what he does is highly correlated with his perspectives of self love. For Alex self love means at the core knowing when to say yes and when to say no. He understands that self love allows him to really enjoy life while at the same time being conscious and mindful of his choices and decisions. Everything we do has an impact and what I really personally jive with is that we both share the perspective that even though some choices may be initially gratifying they may not actually benefit us long term and to make choices and decisions that will bring forth long term sustainable success and happiness.

Alex is a beautiful bright light in this world and we are truly honoured to feature him today and have him be a fabulous contribution to this community!

Radical Self Love Kelsey Grant Alex EcholsCurrently Alex is looking to feature the stories of other inspired peeps up to greatness in the world. To submit a contribution/writing to One Life Momentum you can do so by heading over to his website:www.onelifemomentum.com

And finally it is with extreme giddiness and epic congratulations that we get to support Alex in celebrating his TEDxSydney talk in 2015!!!! It makes my heart so happy to see a thought leader and an inspiration magnet like Alex take the stage and spread the LOVEEE!!

A Week Of Love: Day 1 Anonymous Love Letters – Day 234: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Radical Self LoveWell lovers since Feb is the month of LOVEEEEEE and with Valentines Day a few days away and our Radical Self Love Relationship Course just over one week away I’m going to bring out a week of love and relationship posts for ya’ll!

I have found that one of my passions and areas of natural talent reside in the land of relationships. I have been gifted this beautiful ability to guide people through their relationship challenges with ease and grace and full on enjoyment. I get so incredibly jazzed about talking about relationships, coaching about relationships and rocking the high vibin train in relationships of all kinds.

So I’m going to share the love with you all!

For the next 7 days I’ll be posting a relationship related blog for you all to enjoy. Some days it may be an exercise to increase the love vibes, other days it may be practical advice on rocking your relationships even more. I’m not entirely sure how each day will look but I do know it will be amazing.

I am going to kick this week off with an invitation.

Radical Self Love Letters

IMG_0783A few years ago I had a weekly ritual of gathering the family and writing anonymous love letters and then giving them away to strangers in the time between our family gatherings. My invitation to you is simple:

Starting tomorrow, join me in writing one anonymous love letter to a stranger each day for 7 days. It doesn’t have to be long, just a kind note that you can give to a stranger to brighten their day. The context I always use is this:

I write the exact letter I would want to receive. Plain and simple. Some letters are longer, some are shorter but they are always filled with love.

Then once the letter is written I give it away to a stranger. Perhaps a clerk at the grocery store, a person standing next to me on the street, a person having a solo meal. I let my heart guide me to the person who my higher self declared would benefit the most from receiving the positive love boost.

Radical Self Love

For the next week I will be taking a picture of each love letter and posting it to our Facebook Page. Anyone who wants to hop on this love parade is welcome to do so. I invite you to share a picture of the love letter on our Facebook page, Tweet it to us or tag us on Instagram.

Hashtag all pictures with #RSLletters and lets get the love flowin baby!!
