Meditation and Self Love For the Busy Bodies- Day 356: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Hey lovers!

radical self love kelsey grantI’m so jazzed to be a part of the Stillness Project’s launch and share one of my most favourite meditation teachers with you, Tom Cronin. Tom’s intention with the Stillness Project is to bring together one million people to sit in collective stillness and activate their bliss during a live global meditation event!!! Super rad!

 

I’m a huge fan of meditation and I regularly speak about how vitally important meditation is in maintaining a solid self love practice. However, a lot of peeps in our tribe have mentioned they are first time meditators and don’t have a lot of time to spare.

I totally get that.

When I first started meditating the thought of sitting in silence for an undetermined amount of time freaked me out. Not only was my mind a complete circus, my life was super busy and back then investing 20-30 minutes a day into sitting in stillness seemed absurd and completely unrealistic.

Not having enough time is such a common myth when it comes to meditating that my dear friend Tom Cronin created this awesome video to explain his  72/20 Method.  In this free video Tom gets right into the specifics of his technique to support all of you lovers who want to meditate but can’t find the time.

radical self love kelsey grantI know I’m always looking for ways to become more effective with my time, be more productive and just feel great during my day and this meditation technique facilitates all those yummy benefits into my life. Even if you think you can’t meditate this video will help you move through any inner blocks of resistence and guide you to the land of inner bliss. Self love is the journey of cultivating more of these blissful moments by removing our blocks to love. Meditation is a beautiful bridge to allow more love and greatness in.

I wish I had known Tom back in the day when I was struggling to understand and begin my meditation practice, luckily for all you lovers you can take full advantage of his super effective and powerful techniques for meditation beginners and ease into the world of bliss and inner calm.

His technique is so powerful that when practiced it actually creates an abundance of time and space in your day nearly instantly, something I believe we could all benefit from.

If you are interested in joining our global community and participating in a pretty kick ass event, your invitation to join the Stillness Project awaits ya at the end of the video 🙂 I’m so excited about the possibility of one million peeps meditating in stillness at once. One million people connected to their truth, allowing love in and radiating that bliss out into the world has the potential to activate some pretty serious global healing, and that dear friends is a pretty epic thing!

How Self Love, My Intuition and Universe Saved My Life Today- Day 354: 365 Radical Self Love Project

I’ve always believed the Universe has my back and today I received proof in a big time way.

I believe my intuition is an extension of source energy and my connection to an intelligence far greater than my human brain and body.

How often do we have a gut feeling about someone or something that we ignore?

How often do we follow it?

radical self love kelsey grantAs we travel through the journey of Radical Self Love we program ourselves to actively trust and honour this internal guidance system. The key with listening to the intuition is we have to be somewhat grounded, feeling good and clear for it to make any sense at all.

When we are scattered, anxious, worried or racked with guilt, shame or fear our intuition is drowned out by the musings of the ego. In this state of energy the messages we receive are mixed and just compound the confusion we are already feeling.

On the flip side when we are feeling good, clear, vibrant and resonating in the energy of love, our intuition is loud and clear. In this clarity we are really confident in following it’s guidance, no questions asked.

The key to getting to the space of clear intuition communication is training ourselves to feel good. The more active we are at seeking out what is working, what is going well and collecting evidence of all the gifts and blessings in our lives- we feel better. When we are feeling good our energy is at an all time high. When our energy is high we are receptive to the good around us and become magnets for more goodness to be attracted in. In this level of vibrational alignment with source energy our intuition’s messages come through loud and clear.

My intuition at an all time high.

Now it is very unusual for me to give energy and attention to these sorts of things but for the purpose of driving this message home I will share this.

This morning there was a shooting in my neighbourhood. Literally 2 blocks from my house. I live in a very safe and affluent neighbourhood and stuff like this just doesn’t happen here- but today it did.

I left my house around 10:40 this morning to head to grab a coffee from my fav coffee shop a few blocks from my house. I left the coffee shop around 10:50 and made my way back home. As I crossed the street towards my usual route home my intuition got super loud and literally pulled me in a different direction.

I took the back way home trusting it was happening for a reason. When I got home the reason became very clear. If I had taken the usual route home I would have been right in the line of fire at the exact time the shooting took place.

If there was ever any doubt in my mind that the Universe has my back and that I am here for a very distinct purpose this mornings events really solidified how protected I am. I’m so clear of the value of keeping my vibes high and my energy consistent. If I was in a lower energetic state or not used to hearing and following the guidance of my higher self/intuition I wouldn’t be here writing this right now and my life might be on a very different path.

Today my intuition saved my life and for that I am so deeply grateful.

Radical Self Love supports us in the cultivation of the behaviours, patterns and actions to keep our vibes in highest alignment as often as possible. Today I couldn’t be more grateful for this gift of Radical Self Love.

If you are ready to hop on your Radical Self Love journey our 30 Day RSL program may just be the perfect fit for you! 30 days of Radical Self Love immersion, where we start with simple but powerful shifts to support you in the long term cultivation of the one thing that might just save your life- your self love connection. If you are ready to embrace your intuition, clear your connection to your divine source and feel freaking goooood more consistently- lets do this! xo

Major Successful Day In The Music Studio- Day 348: 365 Radical Self Love Project

This morning I made my way over to Victoria to spend the next few days recording my original tunes for the documentary.

How you know you are doing exactly what you are meant to:

It’s easy, it flows, and while the creation effort is intentional, the expression of the effort occurs as effortless. This was my experience in the studio today. In the past recording music has been a long and somewhat tedious process filled with high amounts of self criticism, doubt, anxiety, lots of takes, long hours, depleted energy- today was completely different

Today’s Music Studio Success

Instead today I chose to utilize the power of positive intention. Before I recorded I meditated. I made a super food smoothy. I relaxed. I laughed. I enjoyed and savoured the moments leading up to the recording session.

RecordingMicrophoneThe first take I completely messed up the song and I knew I had to find further alignment. Instead of putting pressure on myself to record a perfect take on the guitar I elevated my perspective. I tuned into the positive impact this music would have on all the people who would ever come into contact with the tune and from this place of higher, expanded awareness I went back to recording.

In this new head and heat space the music flowed through me. The takes got better and better and each one was honestly usable- which was a first in my experience of recording.

Anytime I sensed the old pattern of worry or self criticism trying to creep its way in I would draw my focus and intention back to the positive impact this song would have and the reason WHY I was doing it. The big WHY is to support the heart opening and healing of every person who listens to the song.

I chose to infuse massive amounts of intention into my work today and it paid off big time.

I recorded the guitar, vocals and background vocals in just under 3 hours- that is a miracle in and of itself an entire song completely recorded in 3 hours!

I am beyond excited to go into production with this song in the coming weeks and I am super pumped to do this all over again tomorrow and get song number 2 complete and filled with loving intention 😉

Starting The Day By Nourishing The Soul- The Importance Of A Daily Self Love Routine-Day 334: 365 Radical Self Love Project

“How things go depends on how they start”- these are lyrics from one of my original songs and one of my mottos in life.

(If you want to listen you can do that HERE)

I have found this rings true in relationships- the relationships starting off on the grounds of truth, honesty and love always go in that same direction, like wise the relationships I’ve had that started off as secrets, with lots of lies or lack of integrity ended up going further in those directions.

I have also found in my day to day this motto is also true. When I invest into myself and my wellbeing first thing in the morning it sets the tone for the remainder of the day. Days when I rock my soul-nourishing morning routine I am happier, I am more effective with my time, I am way more productive and I am way easier to get along with.

radical self love kelsey grant

As I keep stepping into my power and truth it becomes more and more clear that the foundation of my success is deeply rooted in my willingness to nourish my soul, take actions which bring me into vibrational alignment and setting intentions around the direction of my day.

When I first stepped into the world of spirituality and personal development I learned exactly what those specific actionables were that would have me be at my best. After years of testing, trial and assessment I lasered in on the top “actions” that would lead me feeling nourished and in the highest vibrational alignment.

Why is this nourishment and alignment so important?

In the words of Abraham Hicks: “That which is like unto itself is drawn” meaning energies which are in alignment are magnetized and pulled towards each other.

When I take the time every morning to get my vibes as high as possible (my best/highest vibrational alignment varies from day to day) I ensure that I put myself on the best possible path for the day. Meaning when my vibes are optimal I attract amazing people, circumstances and opportunities. I also get to experience the blissful power of flow- where I can trust the Universe has my back and relax into allowing things to unfold naturally.

Soul-Nourishment

When I don’t do my soul nourishment in the morning I am higher strung, way more stressed out, combative, irritable, impatient and I attract people, situations and circumstances that I don’t want to be experiencing.

The only reason I experiencing anything I do, is because I am a vibrational match.

The only way to change what I am attracting or experiencing is to change my vibes. How do I change my vibes? I take actions that are in alignment with nourishing my heart, my soul, my body and my mind.

This is what my soul nourishing/Radical Self Love routine looks like:

  •  Leisurely awake
  •  Spend 5-15 minutes doing some positive self reflection and positive life reflection (just thinking of positive aspects)
  • Gratitude journal minimum one page
  • 6 Minutes of Ego Harmonizing (breath work/meditation)
  • RSL Mantra Meditation/ Inner Guide chit chat
  • Drink 500ml-1litre water
  • I usually add in exercise but some days I do my exercise later in the day and I do take a day or two off a week to rest my body.

These are the things I know I must do each morning to keep myself in tip top shape mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. All of these actionables are vibe aligners which always bring me to the most exciting, fulfilling and incredible places, spaces and circumstances life has to offer.

In our 30 Day Radical Self Love Program we meticulously designed a 30 Day Journey that is accessible and attainable for even the busiest of busy people. In my opinion when we glorify being busy it is often a way to avoid doing the things we need to do most but maybe don’t want to do because they are uncomfortable, take energy and time. Investing into yourself in these ways will make you way more productive and happy in the long run and really thats what we are up to here at RSL- setting people up for success in life and love. It all starts within and it all starts with you ❤

Some Video Inspiration to Elevate the Vibes- Day 326: 365 Radical Self Love Project

positive-mindsToday as I made my official master list of everything that needs to be accomplished before moving and one of my favourite things to do when attending to tasks of this nature is to put on some high vibin audios and set my vibes even higher.

A Walk Down Memory Lane- Covering “Better Life”- Day 323: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Last week at the workshop I taught I pulled an example of how being rooted in a self love and self care practiced prepped me for one of the biggest performances I had done solo at the Calgary Stampede.

Prior to this performance I had never really established a pre-show self care ritual.

Before this game changing performance I did a couple things differently than I usually had.

1. No caffiene- Lets face it as much as I love coffee it does give me the jitters some times- especially when I’m already in an environment where I was prone to being nervous- so I cut it from my morning ritual.

2. High intensity exercise. I went for an early morning summer run to get out any excess anxiety or nervouseness that was there for me.

3. I did a 40 minute meditation, outside sitting on a massive rock (for ultimate grounding) and beside a lake to calm my emotions.

4. I drank a litre of raw green juice. I knew if I wanted to be at my best and the greatest expression of love I needed to put the highest vibin fuel into my body.

These four steps forever changed my experience of performing. For the first time in my entire career of performing live (25 years at this point) I was completely calm before I stepped onto the stage, I was also at peace with whatever was going to happen post performance (I was in a competition).

In the spirit of this magical trip down memory lane I wanted to share with you all the audition song I submitted that landed me in the competition at the Calgary Stampede in front of a crowd of nearly 3000 people. It’s my version of Keith Urbans tune “Better Life”.

Enjoy!

Returning To My Mat- Reconnecting To My Body- Day 319: 365 Radical Self Love Project

After a 3 week hiatus of healing the body I finally got to return to my yoga mat today!!!

It felt so incredible to be back in the yoga studio, soaking up all the amazing feel good vibes and really getting present with my body.

These three weeks of pretty intense self reflection and stillness have had a profound impact on my practice. I found it so much easier today to tune into my body and really feel into my muscles and be clear where I was holding tension. I also found it much easier today to relax into the posture and begin surrendering into the posture and releasing the tension in my muscles.

Not surprising my shoulders, hips and side body were the tightest and after an hour long practice I felt completely intune and aligned in my body. I am grateful for this time away from my mat as it has really made me appreciate how much my body is responsive to my yoga practice.

I’m so happy to be back in the studio and so so so happy to be tuned in and back in full swing with my yummy yoga practice.

Feeling pretty blessed and very grateful ❤

The Things You Must Do Every Day- Wisdom to the MAX-Day 318: 365 Radical Self Love

I absolutely love the teachings of Abraham channelled through Esther Hicks.

This wonderful gem was shared with me from a fellow RSL member! I absolutely love everything about this message. In this quick audio Abraham dives into the top things you must do every day to maintain your most optimal internal conditions for the manifestation of your hearts desires.

1. Meditate
2. Spend more time outside
3. Book of positive aspects
4. Look upward and outward and acknowledge Universal focused right at YOU and celebrate this connection

Which one of these can you bring more attention to each day?

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 🙂

Feeling Re-energized and Re-inspired: The Benefits of A Breakdown- Day 313: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Healing is a process

radical self love kelsey grantEvery day I wake up since this mini health breakdown I’ve been feeling better and better. Additionally this down time has given me a chance to process more residual crap I was unconsciously holding onto and clear out space for more goodness to flow in.

One of the major shifts I’ve noticed lately is the new energy I’m feeling about my company, my programs and my creativity is at an all time high. Before getting sick I was feeling stuck. Feeling uninspired especially with my writing. I love writing it’s one of my favourite forms of expression and I was stopped. I was majorly resistant to writing the ebook and just didn’t feel in a place where I was going to be writing anything of positive value.

Enter the breakdown.

These 2 weeks of “forced” downtime allowed me to fill up in a major way. Even though my body is still in the final stages of recovery my brain feels alert and the inspiration is bursting out of me. Following an epic meditation last week I downloaded the entire free ebook and now I’m just in the process of putting all the pieces in place. I’m so freaking stoked this free ebook is going to be the foundation of the RSL Relationship Mastermind group and I know deep within me that giving this insight and wisdom freely is going to have a massive positive impact out in the hearts of the peeps in our community. It feels so good to be in the process of creating something that has the potential to forever set people on the right track to be in conscious relationships AND maintain a healthy sense of self love and balance!! EEEEK! I’m so freaking stoked!

I know I promised deets about the RSL Relationship Mastermind and the course “From Breakup to Breakthrough” within a week and I haven’t been in a place to create all that magic for you lovers. I appreciate the understanding and patience of all of you beauties while I made my way to recovery. From this new internal space of revitalization and newly birthed inspiration I am ready to go into full creation mode and design a kick ass mastermind and a profoundly life changing 12 week course!

radical self love kelsey grant

In my commitment to your greatness I want to share with you all some of the things this week which contributed and helped me get back on the high vibin train:

– loads and heaps of rest
– a relaxing lavender eye pillow
– essential oils (Theives, peppermint halo, detox, tea tree and immune booster)
– salt and essential oil baths
– afternoon naps
– lots and lots of love from my family
– massive support from my partner
– organic, home made chicken soup
– super green organic juice
– beet juice blends
– raw garlic
– new music (Justin Timberlake’s vibes just make my body want to dance and dancing/movement is so good for the soul)
– reading
– amping up the meditation
– filtered lemon water
– kombucha
– telling the truth
– organic berry smoothies
– oil pulling (incredibly helpful for a cold!!)
– laughter
– connecting with old friends
– writing notes of gratitude and appreciation to the people close to me
– light exercise when my body permitted
– sauna meditations
– trusting myself
– spiritual surrender
– asking for help
– writing
– audio books
– Michael Beckwiths sermons
– snuggles
– soul coaching
– thoughts that make my heart happy
– future planning and creative brainstorming
– jumping on the no train- saying no, and honouring my boundaries
– GRATITUDE

Above all else when a breakdown hits or when resistance is bowling you over TRUST this is a sign that you are about to head to a new level of greatness and that what is ahead is always far greater, more expansive and fulfilling than anything we are called to leave behind. Embrace the breakdown, let it teach you what you need to know and then let it propel you into the great unknown where all delicious possibilities and potential reside.
