3 Day Juice Cleanse, 2 Songs and A Whole Lotta Love- Day 350: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Today wraps up my time in Victoria.

The past three days have been jammed full of creative expression, full on creation, cleansing and so much love.

I chose to do a gentle juice cleanse while I was recording for a few reasons.

  1. When I’m juicing I feel so much lighter and brighter. This is optimal when going into a state of creation. To feel bright and clear makes the entire process that much more enjoyable.
  2. Additionally it fills me up with raw life force energy, which is the pure energy of love. When I’m juicing I find it quite easy to dip into deep states of meditation and I am much jollier. Gratitude radiates out of me and I go with the flow so much more.
  3. I also have a stable levels of energy which is really required when doing work of this nature because it is so energetically consuming.

In this state of super high vibes I am in very clear alignment with my creativity. Which makes recording music a lot easier and enjoyable.

In all my years of writing and recording music this by far was the most incredible and enjoyable process. I just got to be in my flow and the results speak for themselves. Without the pressures of “perfection” I could relax, get into alignment and allow the musical magic to flow through.

I spent about 5 hours in total recording both songs. I recorded the guitar, main vocals and background vocals for both and to do so in such a short amount of time seriously impressed me. We spent today in post production land mixing and putting the finishing touches on both of the tunes- and I am so pumped with how they turned out.

I headed out to a meeting just as the songs were being finished and when I came back to listen to the final product I was blown away. So freaking pumped and honestly really proud of myself and the amazing job I did. Listening to the guitar I was really impressed with how good it sounds and gave myself some serious credit for how far I’ve come in my playing in the past 6 years.

All in all this trip was exactly what my soul needed. I cleansed out the body, opened up to massive amounts of creative energy and allowed love in in a major way. The time I was so blessed to spend with my family, warmed my heart and spiked my energy even higher.

As I return home today I am tired but feel so damn alive and in alignment. So very excited for the next chapter of this crazy awesome adventure called my life 😉

2 Days Until I Hit The Music Studio and Get Recording!! Day 345: 365 Radical Self Love Project

A few weeks ago I was asked if I would release my music to be used on a documentary film.

radical self love kelsey grantCompletely ecstatic at the request and manifestation to have my original music be used in a professional film there was one thing missing.

I’ve never officially recorded any of my recent (in the last 5 years) original tunes in a professional studio.

Prior to moving to Van I was in a band and did quite a bit of recording on the regular. I had a home studio with my former partner and I was able to hop in the studio any time I wanted.

Since moving to Van I re-directed my focus and began building my business and my new life. Music has always be a strong aspect in my journey but since moving five years ago it was no longer the dominant focus of my attention. I took the pressure off myself to “force” something to happen. I allowed myself to relax and trust that if music was meant to be a part of my journey going forward it would find a way.

And so it did.

In 2012 I embarked on a year long music challenge for myself. I decided that for an entire year I would learn one new chord on guitar every month and with that new chord write an original song and post it on Youtube. Out of that experience I deeply strengthened my skills as a guitar player and as a songwriter, AND…

It is those songs which were scouted for the documentary.

So now it is time to get back into the music studio and record a couple of them for use on the film- and I am stoked. I absolutely love being in the studio and recording music is one of my favourite aspects of being a musician.

My intention is within the next year to have recorded a series of my lovey/relationshipy/self lovey tunes to create the official RSL soundtrack for emotional healing and relationship manifestation.

Until then these are the songs I have selected to be used in the film. Have a listen and let me know which one is your favourite and the one you would like to see in the documentary!!!

Magic Is Possible When We Allow Connection To Happen- Day 332: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Yesterday I came across this awesome video of a music jam between three people.

Music jamming is truly incredible as it requires all people to relax and to actually step into a state of flow. Overthinking always breaks the flow of creativity. In our daily lives the same is true, when we try and force things to happen in a certain time, in a certain way, we get out of sync with the natural rhythms of creation.

For manifestation and creation of any kind to occur there must be a state of ease and relaxation present.

What I love about this video is the flow, ease and absolute comfort these three men have with one another.

Why it’s so incredible- because they don’t know each other and this spontaneous street jam turns illus trates our collective power and capacity to create beauty in the world.

Check it out and allow the inspiration to fill you up and activate your free flowing potential baby!!

Our Mistakes Are All Part Of The Creative Genius Journey- Day 279: 365 Radical Self Love Project

In life, sometimes we create great things and other times we create shit.

As an artist I can completely resonate with this- there have been stellar performances I’ve given and there have been dreadful ones. There have been beautiful songs I’ve written and really crappy ones. I’ve explored various creative outlets and been good at some, shit at a few and really great at the rest.

radical self love kelsey grant

I’ve come to realize through my creative journey that I can’t be great at everything and thats ok.

It’s ok to create something amazing and then inside the next creative session nothing exceptional manifests. It’s all part of the process.

Not being good at everything is actually a fabulous thing.

Because what we aren’t strong at- somebody is. Which means that our weaknesses are another persons strength and when we accept these are not our natural areas of strength and stop fighting against it- we open the space for others who have that strength to step into owning and sharing their talents and gifts.

There is space for us all.

kelsey grant radical self loveIn my coaching session today my coach offered up this video as support for my creative expansion. I had mentioned on our call that part of my healing and release this past week was about getting complete and into a place of full acceptance of the worst case scenario in my relationship.

I came to the awareness that even if the worst case scenario were to happen I would still be able to thrive. I wouldn’t be stopped completely and my capacity for holding that experience of loss would be supported by my personal growth, my community and my connection with the divine universe.

 

The impact of this acceptance was a complete opening in the flow of our relationship and connection. I could drop worrying about the worst case scenario and actually be present with him. When we are present with each other we are completely in touch with our divine nature and deep pure love flows between us and within us. Inside of this presence we co-create an incredible dynamic, relationship, partnership and epic soul connection. I have created the space in myself for my creative genius to emerge inside of my relationship.

My creative genius  is my channel and opening to divine guidance, my inner guide and higher faculties.

In our heart centred acceptance of the worst possible scenario we create the space for the best case scenario to manifest.

The same concept holds true in more artistic circumstances. Before I perform in any capacity I get ok with fucking up on stage, I get ok with forgetting the lyrics or chords or doing something imperfectly. My acceptance of this possible reality releases the grip of fear and allows me the space to go out on stage and allow the performance to be what it’s supposed to be.

Sometimes that means I mess up my own songs and when I do I don’t overstep it. I acknowledge it. It takes people by surprise. It also creates a beautiful human rapport between me and the audience- it helps bring down the walls of separation and it reminds us all of the humour of being human. It’s a pretty magical thing.

radical self love kelsey grant

So get out there. Give yourself permission to go full out and risk messing up or not doing something “perfectly”. The more comfy we get in stepping into our fear the more freedom we get the chance to experience. You got this love 😉

New Instruments and Family Dinner- Celebrating Family Day Weekend Day 233: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Today we welcomed a new addition into our family.

We brought home a beautiful new keyboard! It was one of my new years intentions to become more fluent on the piano and well we required a keyboard or piano to make that intention come to life.

A couple weeks ago we out of the blue manifested a new keyboard and today we got to bring it home. As I write right now my man is jammin up a storm 😉 It’s really quite hilarious watching him play around.

Seems to be the theme of the night!

31525_20131231_121406_family03After picking up our new addition we headed over to a family members house to enjoy a family fun night dinner party.

We drank wine, we laughed, we snuggled, we ate pizza, we supported each other, we watched Toy Story 3 and really embraced the gloriousness of Family Day Weekend.

I feel so blessed to have a group of friends who are so near and dear to my heart that they truly are family. Every time I have a chance to connect with any of these wonderful people I am reminded just how lucky I truly am. Each of them is up to beautiful  things in this world and to be surrounded by a family tribe of like minded and like hearted people is truly something very special.

I deeply honour and love each and every one of my family mates here in Vancouver and end this day on a super high vibe totally in gratitude for the amazing family I have created for myself here in Van.

Wishing you all a fabulous evening and start to this glorious week ahead!

It’s All Part of The Healing- I’m Doing My 30 Day Program With You Lovers! Day 220: 365 Radical Self Love Project

spiritual-healingDuring the path of Radical Self Love we go through highs and lows. We face challenges and we overcome them. We crack ourselves open and expose our raw, authentic hearts to the world and because of it we are better and the world becomes a better more beautiful place to be.

That doesn’t mean this shit is easy 😉

Yesterday I had my “coming out” of sorts with a massively huge and authentic blog post hitting the internets on a amazing site called My Tiny Secrets. Read it HERE if you missed it.

The Healing

tumblr_lspdne80nn1qdfdb7o1_500This share was one of those cracking open moments in time for me and my unique journey. It is something that I knew I had to do for my greatest growth and freedom and at the same time I was still incredibly confronted by it.

My humanness was exposed and I am now in the process of adjusting to this new vulnerability, this new rawness and this new space. Today has been an incredibly emotional day and I know it is all for my greatest good, the greatest good of this community and for the greatest good for the state of this world.

The more people who have the courage to step up, tell the truth on themselves and allow their raw, real and incredibly beautiful vulnerability to be shown to the world the more loving this planet becomes. Maybe not right away, we aren’t in a quick fix mode. This type of move is for those who are really interested and committed to seeing long term sustainable transformation of this planet.

We transform our planet through the transformation of our own consciousness. We transform the world by having the courage to do our own healing which means digging into those challenging spaces, wading in the discomfort and accessing our inner power to elevate through it to a higher state of awareness and consciousness.

We must be willing to let go of all that holds us back and move forward fearlessly.

Part of my process will be doing the 30 Day Radical Self Love Program alongside all the beauties who are currently playing full out! This program is so nurturing and is exactly the practice to set us up for success when we are going through those “raw” phases of our journeys.

Tonight I will be posting my Day 1 up on our community page!!

shutterstock_83223145My personal program intention is to amp up my meditation practice to 20 minutes each day with my prosperity mantra, to complete the content for the 9 Week Relationship Course, finish editing both RSL ebooks and complete two of the books I am currently reading 😉

Whew this is going to be a juicy 30 Day journey!!! Looking forward to sharing all of this goodness with you love faces!

I am so grateful for all of you and the incredible support, love and kindness you extend towards me each day here at RSL and towards each other. You are all greatly inspiring and I am so blessed to have you all in my life. Thank you for the energy you bring and the intentions you hold to make this world a better place through your self love! xo

How Lists Keep Me Sane and On Purpose- Day 88: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Sometimes we all need a little reminder to stay on point.

Today I wrote out a list of 20 Things I Want to Remember to do Each Day to Really Rock Life. This list is ever evolving because I am ever evolving.  The reason why I wrote it down and put it in a place where I can see it is:

so I actually do it

I wrote in such a way that when I read it it sounds like I’m talking directly to myself. Its kind, compassionate and the gentle nudge I sometimes require to stay on the ball with everything. I know there are things I will forget to do, which in the past have had a massive impact on my success. By making them present to myself each day I have no real reason to drop the ball.

Kelsey Grant radical self love

Writing things out also helps me feel grounded, I feel like my thoughts are all in one place. Some people do really well with virtual organization tools and I prefer the good old paper and pen route. I’ve learned myself well enough to know what really works for me. I could expend copious amounts of time and energy ‘trying’ to change the way I am and force it to be a perceived  ‘better’ or ‘more efficient’ way OR I can own who I am, accept the ways in which I best process information aka thrive and flow and simply act in alignment.

Kelsey Grant radical self loveHere is the thing. Contrary to what you may think or have been told, YOU and only YOU know deep down what is best for you. I as a coach I have learned I can only offer possible alternatives and perspectives to enhance a clients experience of flow. When it comes down to it though, it is you who makes the final call of what is best for you and your life. In my experience there isn’t ever a one size fits all model that works for success, productivity and ultimately life.

 

 

Kelsey Grant radical self loveWe all have unique paths, with our own set of hidden talents, present strengths and areas of growth and expansion. The more time we spend resisting how we are the more time we spend feeling unhappy, unfulfilled and experiencing contrast. When you get real with yourself about who you are, how you operate and what you need, life becomes a lot more enjoyable. From there you are able to design your life and the way you go through it to be in harmony with your strengths and areas of challenge.

 

 

I’m giving up questioning/ second guessing myself and instead I’m claiming ownership of my life and my experience. To be a beacon of inspiration and light I know I must stay in alignment with my heart. This means doing life in a way that makes sense to me and not always will it please or make sense to others. To be perfectly frank I am not here to people please, I am here to be an example of love, inspiration and intimacy. I can only do this when I am in alignment with my truth.

This doesn’t mean I think I know everything and stop learning and being open to change. Quite the contrary. I am a student of life and I will always be learning, growing and evolving. I will definitely come across tools which will make my experience flow even more seamlessly and I am committed to integrating the tools that feel right in my heart and are in alignment with who I am. These types of tools  will always allow me to maintain my personal integrity and knowing of what’s right for me while assisting me in fine tuning my systems, processes and abilities. So here is my list for you lovers to see, be inspired by and model if you feel so inclined! Sharing is caring after all!

To Really Rock It Remember to Do These Everyday:

  1. Gratitude
  2. Meditate
  3. Learn something new (minimum 1hr)
  4. Schedule FB post for RSL
  5. Blog for RSL
  6. Check RSL email
  7. Respond to any and all messages in the FB inbox/email inbox
  8. Take time for you
  9. Laugh
  10. Smooch and love all over your man. Make sure he knows how much he’s loved
  11. Create something new
  12. Day dream
  13. Act on the guidance you are given
  14. Hydrate
  15. Remember to eat and eat well
  16. Give yourself credit for your accomplishments
  17. Write down your appointments and committments
  18. Be kind
  19. Smile. Smiling at strangers gets more points
  20. Move your body- walking, yoga, sex, gym- any type of exercise will do just do something active

There you have it lovers. My daily list.

If you are ready to take the plunge and start rocking full control over your life feel free to check out our RSL workshop this month. We have a live event and a virtual option. This month we are diving into the theme “Getting Unstuck- How to Really Rock It When Sh*t Hits the Fan”. BAM!!! Lets doooooo this! We are in this together and it’s time for all of us to be free, get our love on and have some fun with life!!!

“Love Is”

Music and Lyrics by Kelsey Grant 2013

I closed my eyes and I sang to the night

Learning my worth in love to set me right

The path I would find it lead me straight to you

Just in the time that we were meant to

When I saw your eyes I felt the truth

Two souls uniting beyond what we knew

My happy heart has found its home

Deep in your love I know where I belong

Love is where your heart is

And its bound in mine

Bound in mine

Life is where our love is and our path with stand the test of time

Love is where my heart is

And its found in yours a sacred sign

Love is

Yours and mine

There may be times when we lose our way

Just so you know my hearts your home to stay

All that we’ve done and all we will become

For you I’m in our love is our song

We’ve got this chance to see things through

Our perfect love

Thyself be true

❤ ❤ ❤

Day 14: 365 RSL Project

cc00fcfb4eb5a3699aOrder is the first law of the universe. The universal Law of Oneness states that everything is in divine perfect order and all things are interconnected. Our thoughts, words, actions, energy, emotions, relationships, environments, are all connected to one another.

The function of universal energies is to maintain this perfect order for the deliverance of manifestation of all forms. The journey of Radical Self Love is the process of aligning further to your truth, which is love. To do this we calibrate our personal energies to the vibrational frequencies of new more positive and empowering states of being and points of attraction. To put it bluntly it is the process of clearing out all the crap in every area of life which no longer serves.

One of the most simple ways to clear the emotional and mental energies and attune to the flow states of abundance, love and creativity is to clean our physical spaces.

Want a breakthrough in your relationship?- Go clean your car.

Want a breakthrough in your health?- Go clean out your closet.

Want a breakthrough in your work?- Organize your home office.

While we may think these things are not intrinsically linked, they are. Our outer realities are always a mirror of our inner states of being. So when our outside worlds are full of clutter and disorganized it is a reflection of the chaos of the inner world.

Take the example of an artist. Artist paint on a blank canvas. The blank canvas is the space for creation. The same in true in our waking lives. We must make space for creation, space for creativity. One of the best ways to do so is physically cleaning and clearing out clutter from our lives.

empty-canvas

The physical clearing works on both an emotional and mental level. In my experience my ability to access mental and emotional release and peace of mind is directly correlated to how clean and organized the physical space I am residing in is.

Clutter of all kinds blocks the flow of energy and can contribute to the experience of feeling overwhelmed, tired and drained. When we invest time and energy into physically clearing the clutter out of physical spaces we give ourselves the mental and emotional space to expand and create in the most positive and on purpose ways.

The creation of space allows us energetically to relax and become more present. It is in the state of presence that on purpose manifestation can occur. In these states we can more easily focus on what really matters to us, what we are passionate about and ultimately how we truly want to show up in the world. In the state of ease and presence we automatically ripple out love energy.

As we become more aware of how our physical environments impact our internal states we can more easily learn to be consciously responsible for the energy we are contributing to the world. Since we are all connected, we may as well vibe super high and be the source of inspiration and positivity for each other!

Time to finish the laundry now 😉

Big love to you all

Kelsey
