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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

It’s All Part of The Healing- I’m Doing My 30 Day Program With You Lovers! Day 220: 365 Radical Self Love Project

spiritual-healingDuring the path of Radical Self Love we go through highs and lows. We face challenges and we overcome them. We crack ourselves open and expose our raw, authentic hearts to the world and because of it we are better and the world becomes a better more beautiful place to be.

That doesn’t mean this shit is easy πŸ˜‰

Yesterday I had my “coming out” of sorts with a massively huge and authentic blog post hitting the internets on a amazing site called My Tiny Secrets. Read it HERE if you missed it.

The Healing

tumblr_lspdne80nn1qdfdb7o1_500This share was one of those cracking open moments in time for me and my unique journey. It is something that I knew I had to do for my greatest growth and freedom and at the same time I was still incredibly confronted by it.

My humanness was exposed and I am now in the process of adjusting to this new vulnerability, this new rawness and this new space. Today has been an incredibly emotional day and I know it is all for my greatest good, the greatest good of this community and for the greatest good for the state of this world.

The more people who have the courage to step up, tell the truth on themselves and allow their raw, real and incredibly beautiful vulnerability to be shown to the world the more loving this planet becomes. Maybe not right away, we aren’t in a quick fix mode. This type of move is for those who are really interested and committed to seeing long term sustainable transformation of this planet.

We transform our planet through the transformation of our own consciousness. We transform the world by having the courage to do our own healing which means digging into those challenging spaces, wading in the discomfort and accessing our inner power to elevate through it to a higher state of awareness and consciousness.

We must be willing to let go of all that holds us back and move forward fearlessly.

Part of my process will be doing the 30 Day Radical Self Love Program alongside all the beauties who are currently playing full out! This program is so nurturing and is exactly the practice to set us up for success when we are going through those “raw” phases of our journeys.

Tonight I will be posting my Day 1 up on our community page!!

shutterstock_83223145My personal program intention is to amp up my meditation practice to 20 minutes each day with my prosperity mantra, to complete the content for the 9 Week Relationship Course, finish editing both RSL ebooks and complete two of the books I am currently reading πŸ˜‰

Whew this is going to be a juicy 30 Day journey!!! Looking forward to sharing all of this goodness with you love faces!

I am so grateful for all of you and the incredible support, love and kindness you extend towards me each day here at RSL and towards each other. You are all greatly inspiring and I am so blessed to have you all in my life. Thank you for the energy you bring and the intentions you hold to make this world a better place through your self love! xo

How to Make Homemade Almond Cashew Milk in Under 10 Minutes- Day 79: 365 Radical Self Love Project

This morning I was lazy and it was good for my health.

I ran out of almond milk and instead of going to the store (a mere 3 minute walk) I made a batch of milk from scratch. My reasons for making it at home were simple I was feeling lazy and wanted to stay in my pj’s. Which got me to thinking why do I go out to the store and buy it when it’s

  • A- way more cost effective to make at home?
  • B- Takes a mere 10 mins from start to finish?
  • C- Tastes way better/ contains more nutritional value?

When it comes down to it I buy almond milk more out of perceived convenience more than anything else. So when I chose health and fitness as my area for my 7 Day Radical Self Love Reset it just made total sense that I made raw milk from home this morning, as it is honestly better for me. The shelf life on this puppy is about 1 week since it hasn’t been pasteurized, so I made a small batch that I knew we would go through in a weeks time. Turned out pretty wonderfully and here is the how to in under 10 mins:

1185951_10153266264540145_2125651990_nTools you will need:

  • cheesecloth or a milk bag
  • a high powered blender
  • an empty glass bottle (recycled jars work too)

Ingredients you will need:

  • handful of raw cashews
  • handful of raw almonds
  • handful of raw sunflower seed
  • 3 organic dates (I like my milk on the less sweet side so if you like it sweeter add more dates accordingly)
  • 1 TBSP of vanilla
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • filtered water (a full blender full)

How to make the milk magic happen:

  • pit the dates
  • put everything in the blender
  • blend on highest speed for 2-3 minutes
  • strain through a cheesecloth or milk bag
  • pour milk into a sealed bottle or container

**If you have more time than 10 mins I would totally recommend soaking the nuts overnight to sprout them, release more of their the awesomeness enzymes and make your milk creamier. After soaking over night give them a quick rinse and pop them in the blender with the rest of the ingredients and proceed**

Health quote

Im so stoked my 7 Day Radical Self Love Reset this week has re-presenced me to the awesomeness of making things like cashew/almond milk from scratch. In all honesty making it at home is way quicker than heading to the store plus I get way more nutritional value out of it since it’s completely raw and unpasteurized. Getting back into the swing of making really yummy food consistently, intentionally putting high vibing food and drinks into my body and rocking the start of a 30 day squat challenge. makes for a solid 7 day reset. I’m going to keep this area my one of focus for the next week and likely the entire month until I finish my squat challenge which meansΒ I’ll probably have some interesting shares about that in the upcoming weeks πŸ˜‰
