5 Simple Ways To Start Loving Where You Are- Day 363: 365 Radical Self Love Project

radical self love kelsey grantIf there is one thing I have noticed in all my years as a coach and facilitator is that a large portion of peeps have challenge being ok with they are in the present moment- never mind actually loving where they are. The path of Radical Self Love supports us in learning what our own experience of peace of mind is and in the process we end up realizing we actually really love who we are and the life we lead- wherever we might be.

5 Self Loving Steps to Loving Where You Are

1. Drop the lack and limitation.

Nothing much changes when we’re in an incompatible vibe to that which we seek. Meaning we must be in a state of harmony and peace before the manifestation ball really gets going. If we are fully consumed with labouring and convincing ourselves and the people around us how much lack we are experiencing the Universe responds to your state of repeated focus by sending you more of what you are so dominantly focused on. When you make a conscious effort to drop the lack talk and instead focus on all you do have you bring yourself immediately into a place of love and appreciation for the present.

2. Make joy a priority.

Each day choose one positive simple actionable. The sole focus of this action is to usher in massive joy. There are a lot of things you do or have done in your life that just make you freaking happy. These are often the simplest things- going for a walk in the woods, cracking jokes with friends, snuggling a animal, playing with crystals or oracle cards (one of my personal fav’s)- it will be different for everyone and there is a high probability the actionable will be different for you every day depending what’s up and how you are feeling. Doing things you love and that bring out the happiness within, support you immediately in feeling lit up about the now.

3. Take inventory on your accomplishments.

Humans have developed this habit of diminishing their accomplishments and not giving themselves credit for the awesomeness they have achieved. Of course we feel like shit and resist where we are at when we do this- it never feels good to feel like we are under performing or failing. When you are clear of how much you have actually achieved over your lifetime and even the course of a few short months your heart will settle into a place of great elation and calm down an over active mind. If it’s challenging at first to find evidence I would highly recommend you take this practice, make it a regular part of your self love routine and write those wins down as they happen.

When I was in a really rough place a few years ago I kept an evidence and accomplishment journal. Every day before bed I would write down all the actions I took that contributed to the expansion of my business and my dreams. I also recorded ALL the manifestations, attractions, accomplishments and wins of that day alone. It became very clear very quickly I achieve a lot more than I give myself credit for and I experience so many wins that my ego tries with all it’s might to diminish and bury. If this is where you are at- start here and watch those vibes soar.

4. Get still.

Seriously, start meditating. When the mind is an untamed circus you will inevitably feel out of control, overwhelmed and unhappy in the now. When we take our power back, get still and confront what is actually going on in our minds we can consciously direct a different result. Facing and embracing the monkey mind is the first step to causing a new and expanded result. A regular practice of stillness helps us to more easily distinguish between the racket of the ego and the truth of our hearts. If you have never meditated before sitting silent alone with your thoughts is likely uncomfortable and deters you. So set yourself up for success, find an avenue that works for now and work towards sitting in silence one day. Start with short guided meditations. Start small and create a vibration of success by achieving an abundance of little milestones. Find ways that work for you and forget the rest.

5. Celebrate someone else.

When the ego has gone into mega overdrive (aka when we think we should be anywhere other than where we are) we’ve gone into full self absorption and separation land. When you celebrate another person, praise their wins or just find something you are grateful for about them, you fast track your way out of the pit of self absorption despair and enter the beautiful vibe of being a positive contribution to someone else. When we are kind and extend acts of kindness towards others our hearts crack wide open. An open heart is a present heart. A present heart is a content and happy heart. A happy heart isn’t trying to “get” somewhere other than where it is. It understands there is an ever present and ever evolving progression to our experience and it is inevitable in a Universe that is friendly and for you, that more goodness is on it’s way and that goodness will arrive in perfect divine timing.

If you are ready to take your self love practice to the next level check out our 30 Day Radical Self Love Program. This beauty has been intentionally designed to set you up for success, dial in the self love practices that really work for YOU and give you a solid foundation to take your life and relationships to a place of harmony, bliss, abundance and beautiful juicy magnificent love.

You deserve to be happy right now.

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.

1 More Sleep Until My Man Comes Home!!! 293: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Only 1 more sleep until my man gets back and I am so freaking stoked!!

After 2 weeks of being apart he will be coming home tomorrow night and my heart couldn’t be happier. Today as a beautiful way to wrap this entire adventure up we hopped on a call and just reflected on all the positive aspects of our time apart has had on our relationship.

Some of the highlights:

1. We learned how to more effectively communicate our needs to each other.

2. We had the opportunity to have really deep, authentic and new level conversations about our relationship, where we are headed and share our excitement in co-creating in this new direction.

3. We got a chance to really miss each other.

4. We explored new creative territory with one another and infused this new creativity into our daily communication.

radical self love kelsey grant5. We got a chance to really build a foundation of trust and honesty.

 

While I am grateful for all of these beautiful gifts we have acquired over our time away from each other I am most certainly ready for him to come back.

So tonight I am going to celebrate this massive accomplishment (being apart and being ok) with my favourite dinner and a lil vino and enjoy a super chill vibe in the house flying solo for one more evening. I feel so blessed to have the relationship that I do and it most certainly has required work, positive intention, commitment to both our healing and a desire to co-create the relationship of our dreams.

After todays reflection I’d say so far we are doing pretty freaking amazing 😉

Wishing you all the love in the world and the most happiness this evening can provide!

radical self love kelsey grantToday I have the honour and pleasure of introducing you all to the amazing and so beautiful (inside and out) Eyoälha Baker the founding Goddess of the Jump for Joy! Photo Project

I was blessed to be featured in her amazing project a little bit ago. My experience shooting my feature was so amazing. It was the first time the two of us had met in person and right from the second we met up we were on a hilarious adventure. It was like meeting up with a soul sista, so natural, hilarious and playful.

 

I absolutely adore her and I am so excited to share her and her radiance with you all today. Eyoälha is one of those people who just radiates happiness, creativity and youthful energy. Her playful approach to our shoot made it so easy to relax and rock out in the creative flow which I completely appreciate and love about her.

radical self love kelsey grant

Why we love Eyoälha:

She is a burst of positivity, joy and truly embodies the spirit of her project: Jump for Joy. She is travelling around the globe capturing the joy of the human spirit while in mid air jumps. It’s pretty incredible first off that she is doing this project. Her desire to capture joy in the human spirit, calls joy forth in people. We love that she is the clearing for this type of positive joyful self expression and this is why we have chosen her today.

Eyoälha is our featured RSL member today because she knows first hand that if she wants to see joy in others she must first embody it.

Her natural jovial state is intoxicating in the best possible way. She is so captivating in her natural beauty that people can’t help but smile and enjoy themselves when they are around her.

radical self love kelsey grant

The world can always use more happiness and joy and she is a beautiful messenger and lightworker who call this beauty and joy forth in people. Eyoälha’s commitment to live a positive life is incredibly inspiring and I am blessed to call her my friend. She is like the big sister I never had- soft, understanding, compassionate, silly, playful and so clear on who she is and the direction of her life.

radical self love kelsey grantEyoälha understands that self love to her is all about connecting inward and honouring her intuition. As a hyper creative individual she really gets the importance of staying true to herself and to put as much love and care into herself as she does into others. This is why she is so fabulous at creating the expression of joy within her work and photography.

Eyoälha wishes to leave a legacy of inspiration and encouragement for people to truly jump in and follow their truth and their dreams. By constantly facing her own fears and living her dreams she gives others the permission to do the same. She is here to help us all remember what it means and feels like to be alive, awake and have incredible amounts of fun in the process of creating our dreams into reality. This dear friends is a beautiful legacy to leave and I can tell you all with full certainty that this woman is living her legacy full out and that makes my heart happy and makes her a most wonderful example of greatness to us all.

She reminds me of the value of exploration, travel and having loads and heaps of fun along the way which is always a fabulous reminder when life can get a little serious or heavy. Her brilliant bright light is a gift to us all and I am so honoured to spotlight her amazingness today!

radical self love kelsey grant

Her mission to travel the world taking fun photos of creative, passionate people jumping for joy and create a book with 1000 photos of joyful jumpers is pretty epic! She truly wishes to showcase the importance and influence of joy and positive perspective in our lives. She feels the more people nourish joy and make it a priority in their own lives, the more it will inadvertently have an effect on others as well. By making the conscious choice to focus on viewing life in a positive uplifting way the more our lives as whole will be uplifted- we couldn’t agree more

Stop Shoulding on Yourself and Get Into Divine Harmony In Love- Day 239: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Dropping the should and entering the world of relationship harmony and inner peace.

Something I am really present to tonight is how truly powerful we each are in creating our experience of being alive.

Couple Meditating at Spa

As I pondered what the relationship post would be for tonight it struck me in a wave of life synchronicity. I was driving to pick up my partner from his course tonight and the stream of consciousness began. The topic of “should” had come up in my meeting tonight and it got me pondering:

Who would I be without my story of how it should be?

I would be at peace, I would be present and I would be in flow.

With this answer in mind I began reflecting on a situation from today. This afternoon I sent my man a beautiful note of appreciation and gratitude. He responded with a lovely text and only moments after reading it the “shoulding” began.

I without conscious thought began casting judgement on his response and convincing myself that he didn’t mean what he said and that his response was robotic and detached.

Then I caught it.

I turned it around on myself.

I asked myself, “where in our relationship had I responded to a kind gesture with a lack of enthusiasm or more accurately from a space of withholding the depth of my gratitude?”

Why it had just happened yesterday.

He showered me with the gift of a beautiful card and I could barely capture any other words but thank you. I was deeply moved and felt so connected but I kept that to myself for fear of looking silly or over emotional. I didn’t own my truth and I certainly didn’t communicate to him how deeply grateful I was for that gesture.

Next reflection how could I see this differently? What would it be like if I knew his response was enough?

As I drove, I began telling myself a different story about his response:

“It was loving”

“It was honest”

“He responded in the most authentic way possible given the circumstances of his night” (he was on a day long seminar).

As I repeated these new stories to myself on my drive the next light ahead would turn green. I had no stops, no roadblocks no obstacles to interrupt my flow the entire drive there.

214098-harmony

It was a beautiful lesson which couldn’t have been more perfect.

When we dwell in the best case scenario we open up to divine flow, life becomes easy, simple, fun, exciting and best of all it feels good.

The universe spoke to me in the form of traffic lights. With every positive creation I made the light turned green- I was in flow.

By the time I arrived at the destination I felt at peace, present and super connected to the blessing and divine gift he is in my life. Pretty freaking magical.

What and who would you be without the disempowering story?

Let yourself go there. Dwell in that creation that all best case outcomes are possible and more importantly the best case scenario is your reality. For what we think we create.

Dropping the shoulding and picking up the positive creation feels oh so gooooood and darling beauty you are incredibly worth it all.

Why Achieving Your Intentions is Great For Your Relationship-Day 237: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Well I did it, completed 55 miles in the gym by Valentines Day! YEAAAAA ME!!

images-1In my final gym session before Valentines day I completed the last 3.67 miles required to hit my target outcome, and it felt gooooood!

Since I gave my word to rock a week of relationship posts it got me thinking about the relationship between the intentions we set for ourselves and the success of our romantic relationships.

Why Achieving Your Intentions is Great For Your Relationship

1. You feel accomplished.

There is just a whole world of gooooood vibes associated with accomplishing things we have set our minds and hearts to. When we are rockin out on the high vibe train we are more enjoyable to be around. People wanna feel good and when you are vibin high and feeling proud, accomplished and in celebration mode that energy rubs off on others and it inspires and influences their energetic state. If they are feeling lower your pure positive vibes will help turn their frown upside down, if they are feeling good it will amplify the goodness and you both benefit. Either way both people win.

2. You come into greater alignment with yourself.

When you give your word to you and keep it you begin to build a greater sense of trust, integrity and self reliance within yourself. When you trust yourself you more easily trust others. When you are in integrity with yourself you attract people who are also in integrity, when you know you can count on yourself you stop putting the icky vibes of neediness onto others. When it comes to romantic relationships this is HUGE. When you trust yourself you will naturally be more trusting with your partner and that is the biggest foundation all solid relationships have in common- each partner is a trustworthy individual (they are self reliant, stay true to their integrity and trust themselves on a deep level). It is in this energy they create so much space to enjoy each other, create together and focus on things that bring out the best in them and their relationship.

img-thing

3. When you play BIG you call your partner to step up their game.

This is fabulous when we are in relationships. Relationships fall into one of two categories. The first being relationships defined by two people who constantly default to old patterns and dysfunctional ways of being with zero intention of changing OR the second type of relationships where both people are always stepping up their internal game, constantly on the path of becoming better versions of themselves and who are willing to change patterns, behaviours and habits that do not serve the highest good. When you set an intention and achieve it you call your partner to look into their life and find ways to strive to be better versions of themselves. This also has a massive subconscious impact for your partner. When you demonstrate your ability to follow through you train them to see you and relate to you as a high vibin supportive partner. When you pave the way first you unconsciously demonstrate your ability to support them in “levelling up” and know they are supportive as they keep playing big.

4. It gives you more productive things to talk about.

Following the last point when we are in a relationship where we are being called to be our best versions the things we talk about and focus on change to a higher frequency. We begin to have “real talk” with each other about our fears, our challenges, our vulnerabilities, our wins, our strengths and our visions for the future. You setting a goal and achieving it brings such a positive focus to your relationship’s communication. What we talk about we bring about, so the more positive our communication the more positivity we will create.

Open your heart tonight and tune in to a goal or intention your heart would love to achieve. Then give your word to yourself to accomplish it. Set realistic targets and timelines to set yourself up for success. Start small and work your way up from there! You got this love face!! xo

For all of you lovers who are interesting in taking your relationships to the next level and want to join us for a 9 Week Radical Self Love Relationship Journey send me an email @ rsl@kelseygrant.com and I’ll hook ya up with the course details and how to register if it all vibes with your heart’s calling ❤
