Self Love Sundays- Day 317: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Sunday’s are one of my most favourite days of the week. They are my day for me. I take time to do the things that bring me joy and really set the tone for the week ahead! Today was such a wonderful and perfect day and here is a little recap of how I rock my self lovin Sundays!

Self Love Sunday

I slept in, stayed snuggled in my bed and did some reading and gratitude journalling to start the day.

I made a super food berry smoothy and had a high vibin chat with my roomie.

I showered, got ready and sat down for a nice self love meditation.

I headed to one of my favourite coffee shops, grabbed an americano and wrote 1.5 chapters of the ebook.

Next I braved the crazy busy Whole Foods Market and scooped up some juicy, organic eats for dinner.

I then came home popped in a very girly movie and cooked.

I made a delicious butternut and sweet potato soup from scratch, marinated organic chicken on a bed of fresh greens and a rhubarb peach crisp with raw cashew cream to top it.

Then I sat down had dinner with my man and now we are about to enjoy a super chill night together.

Life is so amazing and when I take one day a week to just do the things that bring my soul joy I set myself up emotionally, physically and energetically for a fabulous week ahead! As an addition to any Radical Self Love routine regular self love dates/check ins are needed.

When I take this precious time to connect with what makes me happy I’m a much more pleasant person to hang around with (I’m usually pretty jolly but when I take this time I increase my capacity to be patient, compassionate and kind in the face of challenging circumstances). I take care of myself so that I can better hold space and take care of those around me who may need support and guidance. When I invest into me this way my work thrives. My writing is better and I feel more inspired to take bold and courageous actions in my life- which ultimately leads me to manifesting my dreams and hearts desires.

Choose one day a week where you can invest at least an hour into your self care and self love. The world becomes a better place when you do 🙂

How Cooking With Love Makes The World Better- Day 153: 365 Radical Self Love Project

For the first time since I’ve been home (over a week) and the previous week and a half of being away, I am finally getting to cook a home made dinner.

To some this may not be exciting but I am not those people.

I LOVE COOKING

It is one of my favourite forms of expression, creativity and contribution. I love taking care of the people I love and one of the ways I find it easiest to do so is to make incredible food.

The way I cook is unique to some.

I cook with intuition and intention.

radical self love kelsey grantThis means I don’t follow recipes I combine ingredients based on an intuitive knowing and do enough knowledge seeking about food and cooking that I have a pretty solid grasp on what will work and what wont. Occasionally this method goes awry and more often than not it is an epic success.

I also choose to cook with intention. This means I infuse positive intention and blessings into the food while it’s being prepared AND I also ensure my energy is positive and coming from a space of love and contribution BEFORE and WHILE I am preparing and cooking. It is so important to me to enjoy the process of cooking and to not rush.

Any energy I am holding while I’m cooking is being transferred and infused into the food, which then is consumed by me and anyone else I am preparing food for. So if I’m in a shitty mood, super stressed, pissed off, worried or anything to that effect ALL of those energies are being transferred and consumed by other people, and guess what once transferred those energies begin to impact the mental and emotional states of the other person. This is not the type of impact I wish to have.

So I choose to infuse love and possibility vibes into the food being made and consumed. If I’m feeling blessed, grateful, excited, present, happy, loving all of those energies are being given and received. That is the impact I am intending on having.

The work we are here to do is always in motion. Our journey of Radical Self Love is uncovering how to integrate our gifts and positive intentions into all things we do, including the day to day stuff, especially the day to day stuff. This is our practice ground. The space where we get to build the muscles of our gifts and practice beaming positivity and love out into the world. When we are able to effectively infuse love into the day to day, or seemingly small or menial tasks, we pass the universal test and get to “level up” and are awarded a greater audience or scope to impact.

Take some time tonight to reflect on how you can infuse more positive intention into the “small” things and then put those intentions into action.

Radical Self Love to the MAX!!!

Day 12: 365 RSL Project

Today after a long somewhat emotional day of travelling back home from a wonderful week long vacation, my act of Radical Self Love was to come home and make my absolute favorite dinner. Baked spaghetti with homemade sourdough garlic bread. 🙂

Cooking is one of my favorite meditative actions. It allows me space and time to myself, activates my creative energies and gives my mind the space to clear and energy to reset. Cooking with love’s intention is one of my absolute favorite things to do and a wonderful way to ripple love energy out into the world. So tonight I shared the love and made a wonderful dinner for me and my man to enjoy! Here is a pic (courtesy of CB Photography)

Loads and heaps of love
