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!

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.

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.
