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!

Spirituality and Body Image- DAY 283: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Spiritual Guides To Healing Our Body Image

A fellow RSL member reached out to me the other day to request any books about positive body image.

The first person who came to my mind was the lovely Gabby Bernstein.

I would recommend both Spirit Junkie and May Cause Miracles.

Gabby teaches through her real life experiences with spirituality and body image in both of these books.

Additionally I would recommend Doreen Virtue’s book Constant Craving and her audio program Healing Your Appetite, Healing Your Life- A Spiritual Approach to Life and Weight Management.

And of course the ever amazing lady to started this entire spiritual community Louise Hay. Her book You Can Heal Your Life is a must have.

I also tracked down a really great interview Gabby did a while back which touches on body image from a spiritual perspective. I love all of these authors and speakers and have really resonated with each of these books/programs. I have gone through each one and I can say with full certainty these gems certainly helped along my path of self love, self acceptance and developing a more body positive self image.

Happy Exploring ❤

My Most Vulnerable Share Of All Time- Day 219: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Well lovers I have something really big to share with you today.

sacral-chakra-swadhisthana-dirk-czarnotaMy intimate journey of Radical Self Love has been a long process. Filled with many ups and just as many downs. It is these times of great challenge when we are called to change.

In this piece I share one of the greatest life changing moments. A moment when I was faced with the choice to live a life filled with fear and pain or choose the path of love, healing and transformation.

I never really knew, until this point, what it meant when people said it’s only when you get sick that life quickly gets put into perspective and change is no longer a choice but a necessary path to ensure survival. 

So here it is for you loves, my guest contribution article for My Tiny Secrets.

**Disclaimer**

This article is an incredibly intimate account of sexuality, dis-ease and healing.

I am honoured to share this with you all in the hopes that my share may set others free from the prison of fear and open just a few more hearts and minds to the path of love.

Day 3: 365 RSL Project

“The body, like everything else in life, is a mirror of your inner thoughts and beliefs. Every cell responds to every single thought you think and every word you speak. A wonderful affirmation to use is: I LISTEN TO MY BODY’S MESSAGES WITH LOVE” ~ Louise Hay

Every day I am so amused by the universe’s sense of humour and my humanness. For the past week I have been feeling ‘under the weather’. I truly believe I attract everything I experience and I know ‘getting sick’ was brought in for a breakthrough in my awareness.

Often, one of the underlying factors of me being outside of perfect vibrational harmony with my health has been a lesson in slowing down and taking time for myself.

This time I know it is part of it. My life has been so full lately and I’ve been filling up my pockets of time ‘getting things done’ and allowing the time for me to get lower on the priority list. I also know that by doing this I am lowering my vibration. The journey of radically loving myself becomes more challenging when I’m operating from a lower energy.

The other aspect of this attraction is a little more facinating in nature. Exactly the day I declared I was venturing into this world of unknown territory and fully embracing the call of my spirit to teach, write, speak and sing about Radical Self Love, is the day I got sick.

I’ve done enough work on myself to know feeling ill is a familiar trick my ego likes to pull out to keep me playing safe, small or just not playing at all. This common theme has shown up at each paramount point in my life where I was faced with an opportunity that would change the world as I knew it and the direction of my life. My ego is a sneaky lil bugger and will masquarade under the guise of catching a cold, tripping and falling, or any situation or circumstance that could be deemed an ’emergency’ or ‘urgent attention required’. I’m onto the trappings of my ego and my awareness around my default/sabotage mechanisms is getting more attuned as the days go by. This is a HUGE win for love.

The thing about getting sick is it could have given me an excuse to not follow through on my word and keep up with the project. However, this project is so much bigger than me and my ego. The call of my spirit is loud and clear which makes it so much easier to identify when my ego has attempted to hop in the drivers seat and to gently keep steering my hearts course.

So here we are today with the 3rd post where I get the extreme pleasure of ‘outing’ my ego and it’s not-so-sneaky-anymore antics 😉

Today’s awareness will pair quite nicely with a relaxing bath and some solid solo time.

Tonight’s intention: recalibrate and soak in the beauty of this project, be present to the positive ripples it’s sending out and celebrate the gloriousness of listening to my infinitely intelligent body.

Only Love,

Kels
