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 😉

Some Days You Just Gotta Rest- Day 306: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Today I woke up not feeling so hot.

radical self love kelsey grantThe past few days I had been a bit under the weather but still had enough energy to go through my days and accomplish tasks that needed to be completed. This morning however I awoke with body acheyness and I new this was a sign from my body to chill out and take a couple steps back.

Upon waking up I made a slow emergence out of bed and hopped right into a delicious 25 minute meditation. One of my greatest access points to healing on all levels is a regular stillness and meditation practice. In my meditations I will often receive guidance for my day and today the guidance was simple, juice and rest.

After making my way out of our room I snuggled up on the couch and fell back asleep. The body always knows what it needs to heal, the challenge sometimes is quieting the mind. I let myself rest.

When I awoke I made a massive immune boosting juice with beets, carrots, oranges, ginger and apple. Paired with some kombucha and water I was set for a few hours.

Today I let myself rest work wise too. I read and did a little bit of writing for the ebook and just maintained stillness as much as possible.

Now into the evening I have a few calls to complete and when they are finished it will be juicing round 2 this time green detox juice and hopping into bed early. I often ponder when life slows me down like this “What am I meant to learn or see that I am currently not seeing?” “How can I nourish my body, mind and spirit to feel better and better?” These two questions often set me right on the path for receiving all the answers required to resetting my vibes and healing my body.

If your body is calling for rest, nourishment or just some loving attention today give in and give yourself exactly what you need to be at your best- wherever that is today!

Why Challenges And Relationship Squabbles Are Really Just Soul Tests- Day 298: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Challenges are soul tests- if we choose to see them this way.

Last night right before the energies of the lunar eclipse kicked into full swing I was given a soul test. Around 8:45 I over heard a conversation my partner was having about our relationship and his recall of what had transpired.

One little phrase of what he said triggered me, and triggered me deeply.

Knowing that the eclipses are opportunities to plant new seeds of being I knew I was being handed this “gem” from the Universe to see how far I had truly progressed in the past six months. The position of the eclipse was especially significant for me and my astrological chart.

For the past six months I have been working on my relationship stuff and really going deep within to resolve the deep parts of me that I was being called to heal. This specific moon placement would call into action all of those lessons and bring them up for review in the form of a soul test.

To achieve a result you have never had you must do something you have never done

So in knowing this I did something different. I noticed my reaction and instead of sitting with it and replaying it over and over in my head- completely convoluting the scenario, I went to have a shower. I knew on many levels for me water is very cleansing and standing under the shower head visualizing the heated energy within me washing off and going down the drain is often highly effective for me. In this particular instance it did help me reground and return to the present moment- that was until I saw my partner.

As soon as I saw him the trigger was activated almost immediately and I knew there were more tests just on the horizon. I knew I had to be honest and clear with him what was going on. So I shared. At first it was pretty calm, but as we continued to talk and communication became more misunderstood I exploded.

Yup I had a full on ego-blow out. I couldn’t think straight, I couldn’t formulate sentences, I was overcome with intense feelings of rage and so instead of entering into world war 3 with my partner I let myself be guided to do something different.

I walked away from the conversation and told him I was going to meditate.

I grabbed my crystals (Angelite and candle quartz) and sat myself down. At this point I was trembling with upset and just made an agreement to sit with myself and my experience until it passed however long it took. I’m not exactly sure how long I sat in meditation. I sat there as tears rolled down my face- I thought that I had failed this soul test by having an ego eruption. As I sat with myself and called on my guides it became very clear to me that there was something greater going on beyond what I could currently see. As I made peace with the reality of the situation and accepted it for what it was the feeling of upset dissolved.

When I came out of meditation I picked up a book on soul lessons conveniently sitting beside me and flipped to a “random page” knowing that whatever page I landed on would be the perfect message for me to receive at that moment. I opened it to the soul lesson of: “Embrace Life’s Tests”– ummm how divinely perfect.

I read the lesson finding more and more peace with every word I read. As I completed the chapter I came into the awareness that I had actually passed the soul test. I had done something remarkably different in the face of conflict and upset. I had removed myself from the charged situation and immediately chose to invest myself into an action that would truly lead me out of where I was at.

When I returned to the living room nearly 40 minutes later something major had shifted. I apologized for my outburst, took responsibility for the fact I was triggered and then another miracle occurred. He softened, he told me he understood why it had triggered me and that next time he would be more aware of the words he was choosing to describe what had really happened. I felt understood. Then he acknowledged me for doing something different and handling the situation in a way I never had before. I felt appreciated. I felt loved.

Challenges expand our souls capacity for kindness, compassion and love

So you see friends we all have shit that hits the fan and it’s in these times of challenge/soul testing that we are given the opportunity to do something different to achieve a different result. It takes time. It takes practice. Our ego patterns are intense and deeply engrained in our behavioural patterns and it takes conscious awareness and a commitment on our part to begin to show up for ourselves differently.

Where ever you are, whatever you are facing, know you aren’t alone, know that you are capable of transcending whatever limitations are within you and that every challenge is a sign our souls are eager to grow and expand into our greatest potential. They arise so we can learn each time how to handle ourselves with more compassion, grace, kindness and love.

To you and all your delicious soul expansion ❤

RSL’s Feature Friday: Lysa and Gina! Day 196: 365 Radical Self Love Project

OOOHHHH YAAAAA!! RSL’s FEATURE FRIDAY is back lovers!

To kick off this brand new year I have some very incredible women to introduce you all to!

radical self love kelsey grantToday’s feature are RSL members Lysa and Gina! These beautiful ladies are intuitive coaches who support women in establishing a positive, healthy and empowered relationship to food, their bodies, body image and weight. What we love so much about these ladies is the strong undertone of self love and self acceptance that flows through their work.

Collectively these two have released 40 Kilo’s (about 90 pounds) and have stayed slim for the past 20 years through their application of a self love approach to body image, body healing, health and weight.

 

Their approach to supporting women in their body love journey’s is rooted in their own personal experiences. Their willingness to authentically share their stories, their fears, their challenges and their truth is heart warming and deeply inspiring.

radical self love kelsey grant

As women we are constantly bombarded with images and messages that we are not enough. The impact of this is a lot of women, myself included, form a dysfunctional relationship to our bodies, our beauty, and our brilliance. Often this takes the form of some type of self harm, whether it be over eating, under eating or debilitating internal talk, the essence of self hatred is there. Lysa and Gina are two beautiful and gorgeous women who have found their way through this experience and who have bravely chosen to use their journey to and through self love to inspire and encourage women to develop a healthy sense of self, an empowering relationship to food and most importantly a beautifully loving relationship towards themselves.

radical self love kelsey grantWhat we love about their work is that they get to to core of WHY the dysfunctional pattern came into being. Without knowing the cause or root of why we do what we do our results often are unsustainable. Being highly intuitive Goddesses they gently and boldly explore the emotional and subconscious territory with their clients to lead them through towards a long term sustainable resolution. They teach women how to eat in a loving way, think about themselves in a loving way, and feel their emotions in a compassionate and loving way.

radical self love kelsey grantThese women lead the way, through their example for women to give themselves permission to feel great, love what they see when they look in the mirror, fuel their bodies with the best energies and bring a fresh, positive and loving perspective to the health and wellness industry.

Here are two soul sisters, who have contributed to much positivity, honesty, integrity, compassion, friendship, kindness and love towards us here at Radical Self Love. We are beyond blessed to have these two beauties in our community and spreading the vibes of self love all over the world!

These two beautiful love faces are currently offering a Free E-book/14 Day Course called “Love Yourself Slim”. You can scoop up a copy here: http://bit.ly/1auFN8b
