From Fear To Love In One Minute: Inspiration For Your Soul- Day 352: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Today my wonderful and inspiring partner posted a fabulous one minute video on his social media feed.

I personally am a big fan of Jim Carrey as he is a fabulous advocate for the human potential and power to create our experience through our activation of either fear or love.

I really dig it when people in the public eye use their platform to spread messages of inspiration, hope, possibility and love.

In this one minute video Jim anchors in some really solid perspective. “You can fail at what you don’t want so you might as well take a chance doing what you love”. I completely agree. We have just as much opportunity to create a live filled with abundance, connection and love as we do creating one filled up with lack a limitation.

The way your life unfolds is up to you. The outcomes you produce in your life are directly linked to the quality of thoughts, feelings and actions you repetitively cultivate. At any given time you are either in the domain of fear or the domain of love.

RSL actionable to shift from fear to love in no time: Ask better, more empowered questions from life. Instead of saying “Why me?” take your power back and replace the lack mindset with a better question:

  • “What inside me is trying to emerge through this challenge?”
  • “What am I being called to learn, grow or strengthen within me”
  • “What can I do to be in alignment with my truth, with my desires and with my dreams”.

Interested in better results? Ask better questions. Let yourself be inspired on the regular. Make your top priority feeling good aka being in alignment. To help out on the feeling good and inspired quest, watch this lovely one minute vid!

Early Morning Intention Leads The Way To Awesomeness- Day 255: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Last night I made a promise.

A promise to myself.

I gave my word that I would get up at 5:55am and be at the first hot yoga class of the day at 6:30.

I did it and the inspirational impact was HUGE.

radical self love kelsey grant I was tired this morning because of course I wasn’t tired last night when my ego knew I was wanting to get up early. But even in the midst of being tired, I rolled out of bed and was out the door at 6:04.

My intention throughout my practice was to feel good. I made my choices on the depth of the postures based on what felt good to me in that moment.

When we set an intention often at some point our resistance to the intention will present itself. I am certain this happens for one reason only.

So that we can bring our intention to the ego flair.

Bring acceptance to the resistance.

Bring light into our shadow.

So that we can clear another layer that would otherwise hold us back from truly experiencing that which we have intended.

So this moment came up for me upon returning home. I was thinking thoughts that lead me to feel not so great. I began having thoughts of doubt and upset about the work I do and where I perceived I was at. In this moment I had a choice I could either let this story run or I could access my intention to lead me elsewhere.

I chose my intention.

Just because my intention was to feel good I couldn’t in the moment make that flash change of state. So I asked for help. I reached out to my partner and told him what I was feeling, what I was afraid of and got it out rationally. He offered some fabulous perspective and reframes which helped clear so much of the sticky energy out.

The energy still hadn’t quite cleared itself completely so I asked myself what do I need right now to feel good. My body said rest and my eyes were drawn to a particular crystal. So I listened. I grabbed the crystal put it in my left hand and had a mini nap. When I awoke I was bright, feeling clear and most importantly feeling good.

I went on to have an absolutely incredible day connecting with people all over the world, rocking interviews for Awesomeness Fest. I seriously had the honour of talking with some of the most kind, inspiring and uplifting souls today.

Abundance on every level- feeling goodness on every level- and it all was possible because I kept my word to myself.

I did exactly what I told myself I would.

I embraced the flow of the day and asked for support when I needed it.

I allowed the energy of possibility and goodness to fill me right up.

Quotation-Steve-Maraboli-action-desire-commitment-success-Meetville-Quotes-228137

Setting this clear intention and honouring my integrity were the two fundamentals in creating a day filled with inspiration, love, connection and abundance. This 21 Day Yoga Challenge is calling me to play at a bigger level and is having a substantial impact and it was only day 3 😉

Excited what the remaining 18 days have in store!!!

This year amongst the speakers was a presentation on Entrepreneurship and…SELF LOVE

Yup you read that right.

Self love and business.

The inspiring presenter,

Kamal Ravikant

In his 20 min presentation he accounted his journey through business, success and self love. It was absolutely incredible and inspiring.

loveyourselfTo watch a man get on stage and openly share his up’s and downs in business is commendable and to go even deeper and fully reveal his deepest vulnerability- accounting the lessons of self love made my heart leap for joy. What made me even more giddy was to hear this awesome human wrote a book called Love Yourself in which he describes the secret to life resides in our ability to love ourselves. Incredible.

Self Love is Transforming the Planet

I knew he was a beautiful message from the Universe to keep up the Radical Self Love work because it is creating massive ripples in the consciousness of this planet.

For every person who embraces their journey of self love, dives in and does the work- the world becomes a friendlier, softer and more love filled place.

Three Valuable Lessons My Coach Taught Me Today- Day 209: 365 Radical Self Love Project

I love Thursdays

Thursdays are my coaching days. They kick off with my amazing coaching session with my coach and then I rock client sessions throughout the day.

Why I have a coach

What makes me an effective coach, leader and facilitator is my willingness to be coached and teachable. I know enough to know I don’t know everything. I am like anyone else who signs up for coaching. I have a life that sometimes gets lifey. I experience contrast, breakdowns and challenges. I am effective at what I do because I allow myself the space to work through my stuff and clear my shit in respectful and constructive ways.

My coach reminded me of three very valuable lessons today:

radical self love1. There are some people who by nature seek drama and it is not a life requirement to get pulled into their shit-storm.

2. Conflict can only arise when there is a lack of clarity.

3. When dealing with conflict, breakdown and emotions there is always room for possibility and the opportunity of a breakthrough.

While we may write certain people off in our lives because they are challenging we must keep in mind that those people are brought into our lives for a very important reason. They are always brought into our lives to help us overcome our own limitations and internal conflict. While they may present this opportunity it is important to note it is not required to keep them in our lives. Sometimes we just have to bless people, wish them the best and set them free.

What we see in others means nothing about them and everything about us.

We-do-not-see-things-as-they-are-we-see-things-as-we-areOur model of the world is based on our own personal life experience. No two people experience life the same and there for no two people will share the same perspectives and interpretations of life’s events. What occurs to one person as peaceful occurs to another as an attack and it is all rooted in our perceptions of the world. Some people just have a lens of drama. They unconsciously seek it and perpetuate it.

We either believe we live in a hostile universe where everyone and everything is out to “get” us or we believe we live in a kind and loving Universe where everyone and everything exists to help us grow, understand and come more into alignment with our truth. When we believe the world is out to get us we act in such a way to ensure we are “right” about it. Meaning we leave a lot of grey room in our communication, in our actions and in our behaviour. Lack of clarity is the ideal breeding grounds for conflict. This is why clear agreements and the management of details plays such a vital role in our ability to thrive and experience possibility.

Clarity is the foundation in which possibility is built on.

When we have a solid foundation we minimize the opportunity and space for breakdowns with each other. However when breakdowns do occur, and they do for all of us. What there is to understand is we all have the opportunity to handle them in a respectful and  constructive manor.  One of the foundational pieces of coming into harmonious resolutions is this: before launching into coaching mode or giving feedback mode create the space for possibility and have their agreement.

This means setting the conversation or context up in such a way where you allow the other person to freely choose what is best for them at this point in time. Most people just spew their breakdown, go on the attack and then wonder why the person on the other end is not receptive.

quotes-marianne-williamson-1-600x411

What we can do to shift this is simply ask permission.

WayneDyerQuote1Get their buy in. When you have something you need to share, before you share, ask them if they are open and willing to hear what you have to say right now and have the conversation. This one simple step sets you both up to win.

It ensures you will only have the conversation when both parties are open, willing and receptive to feedback. Until that happens we leave the space for more upset, more conflict and no resolution.

It certainly takes courage and a higher level of self awareness to operate this way- and it is totally worth it. Communication that is clear, honest and constructive is always the way to go. When you respect another by allowing them the space to choose when is the best/most optimal time to have the convo you are already on the path to success.

Harmony in breakdowns comes from a willingness to see things differently. Willingness to forgive. Willingness to learn. Willingness to grow and most importantly willingness to love. 

Choose love lovers- it just feels better 😉

Invest In Yourself- How 1 Hour of Self Study Can Increase Your Happiness- Day 189: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Learning is very important to me.

tumblr_lybg6nhPx61qzmufro1_500I know it is one of the things which makes me an effective teacher, leader, friend and partner. Being open to learning and receptive to new information increases our vibrational alignment, increases our confidence and ushers in the opportunity to really claim our power and own our inner wisdom.

We are all teachers.

Perhaps not in the conventional sense of being infront of a body of students and lecturing, but in our own ways we are all teachers. We all have wisdom which comes through us and is accessed through our life experiences.

How to be an effective teacher.

First things first, an effective teacher is a top notch student. The best teachers I know are students of life. They are open, receptive and humble enough to know they don’t know everything and they all share a common desire- to be better humans, be more effective teachers and be powerful examples of love in the world. These types of teachers are always learning. They study their craft, they practice and they do the work they require of their students.

4f0838541405544eff3879125d18b016

The second step to being an effective teacher is learning how to get out of your own way. This comes through self reflection, self learning and self love. The best teachers I know invest an abundant amount of time, energy and resources into self development aka learning to be the best version they can be. They learn how to overcome their challenges by bravely looking at and acknowledging where they require growth. They seek out information and teachers who can take them to the levels they want to get to and they are driven by the insight that when they are their best version they create the environment for their students to succeed in life as well.

Be-your-best

My RSL Invitation to Increase Your Happiness

My invitation to you today is simple, invest 30 minutes each day in studying your passion and 30 minutes each day studying self growth or self development.

tumblr_mlamcxbWMo1qhziwoo1_500One hour is a great starting point to establish a positive and inspired habit around learning. So much of my life I felt like I had to learn about things I really didn’t care about or was passionate about. Now I realize I have 24 hours in the day just like everyone else and how I spend those hours is completely up to me. When I began this process of self study about 7 years ago I made a commitment to myself to “give up” an hour of TV in exchange for learning about my passion and practicing. Ultimately that one choice was one of the foundational factors leading me to the life I live now, in a city I love, with a partner I adore with all my heart, living a life I am truly uplifted and fulfilled by.

As we approach the new year it is a great time to reflect and really commit to you and your wellbeing. It is a time to step into creating a life you are worthy of and that lights you up. It is the time to start living on purpose, living your purpose.

The Top 5 Success Lessons I’ve Learned in 100 Days- Day 100: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Wow!!! 100 days of blogging complete

and this is just the beginning

Kelsey Grant radical self loveI began the Radical Self Love project, blog and community only 100 short days ago. Time has flown by and when I think back and reflect on all that has happened in such a short time, I am truly amazed and really present to the profound nature and presence of miracles.

Our online community on Facebook is nearly 1000 RSL lovers and it’s growing more and more each day. I am honoured and humbled by the expressions of support and love from each person within this community.

In the spirit of celebration here are the top lessons I’ve learned since beginning this quest:

1. The distance between your reality and your dreams is highly dependant on your beliefs. I know the only reason this project and community has grown in the ways it has is because first and foremost I believed it to be possible. That belief is what fuels me each day to wake up and show up for this awesome group of peeps.

Kelsey Grant Radical self love

2. Success takes effort. None of this happened over night in fact in all honesty it is the by product of 30 years in the making. Every experience I’ve had has contributed to the construction of this project and community. The growth and expansion Radical Self Love is experiencing is a product of solid, daily consistent effort. Every day I work on this project, every day I’m creating and sharing, every day I am practicing (some days more than others) the principals of Radical Self Love in order to be the best leader and inspire through my personal example.

3. It takes a team. Without my internal team of advisors, coaches, partners and developers I wouldn’t get very far. I have my areas of strength and although my ego would like to think I am the best at everything that simply isn’t true. I am good at what I am good at. Other people are strong in the areas I am not-those are the people I have on my team. They call me to learn, grow and think outside the box. It is because of them all of this is possible.

4. The more I embrace my natural gifts and areas of interest the more successful RSL becomes. I love love, relationships and learning to love myself more. Naturally, because these are such true passions of mine, each and every time I write, blog or speak about these topics the engagement within the community booms. A huge part of these first 100 days has been trial and experimentation to see what really resonates with people. Ultimately what resonates is passion. When I share about my areas of passion its embraced with very welcome arms-thus going forward we are going to really embrace the communities interest in love, relationships and of course radical self love.

kelsey grant radical self love

5. Gratitude. Plain and simple. Each day the practice of consciously acknowledging what I am grateful for has ensured I always have so much to be grateful for. Count the blessings and the blessings to count increase. It’s such a beautiful miracle to experience each and every day. Praise for what is working, what is going well and all you have is a key to living in total harmony with love’s essence.

kelsey grant radical self loveWith all we have achieved in the first 100 days I am beyond stoked to see what the next 100 days have in store! Big yummy bursts of love to you all. Its all of you lovers who really make this project a pure pleasure to create, develop and share. Thank you for all you do, thank you for all you are!!!

Why Acknowledging Your Wins Brings More Goodness- Day 94: 365 Radical Self Love Project

This afternoon on our Facebook community we reached 700 Radical Self Love lovers.

Radical Self Love Kelsey GrantHoly Moly super achievement!!!

I am completely proud and stoked on this personal achievement. To build this community it has taken dedication, consistency and my ability to show up for life and be in the energy of contribution. Instead of serving the energy and desires of my ego I have chosen to serve the energy of contribution, love and community.

 

One of my regular Radical Self Love practices is acknowledging myself and the goodness in my life and rocking the gratitude train. There is a distinction to be made between the two.

The difference between acknowledgement and gratitude

Gratitude: Is giving praise to all the goodness abundant in my life. This can range from feeling grateful about waking up in a comfy bed with the sun shining on my face, to praising the money I have in my bank account, to appreciating the friends and family in my life. Everything I experience in my waking life I can meet with a vibe of gratitude.

Acknowledgement: Is taking ownership of the direct influence I have on attracting and bringing to fruition certain results or outcomes in my life. There are certain actions and behaviours I do that correlate with certain achievements and results.

Why acknowledging your wins is a solid RSL practice

  • 1. The more we can come to terms with the fact we are the only ones at cause for all we experience, the more internal freedom we have the potential of experiencing. Part of owning our responsibility for our lives lies in the amazing (and often uncomfortable) practice of self acknowledgment.
  • 2. It takes the pressure off of other people: We as humans want to be seen, recognized and acknowledged for the things we do. However we don’t always receive the recognition and acknowledgement from the people we expect should give it to us or in the ways we imagine it happening. When you acknowledge yourself you let other people off the hook for your happiness. You take charge of your experience and validate your awesomeness through your own recognition and celebration of all you are and all you have achieved. As the saying goes if you want to be acknowledged- acknowledge yourself. This is the only way you will always receive what you are seeking. As you make this a regular practice you stop relying on others to validate your experience- which ironically, leads them to being more likely to share their acknowledgement. The difference being, it comes from their free will- because they want  to– not because they have to.
  • 3. You will have also have activated your ability to practice detachment from an expectation. When you no longer expect people to act in a certain way you release your energetic hold on them. When this happens they feel free and are able to actually see the goodness you are bringing forth. The best part if they for some reason never acknowledge you you are totally ok. You are no longer dependant on their feedback or awareness of your actions for a feeling of fulfillment and worth.

kelsey grant radical self love

Self Acknowledgement is an access point to increasing your relationship to self worth

Kelsey Grant Radical Self LoveAs we begin to get stronger at giving ourselves the acknowledgement we are seeking from others we can become more present to the incredible beings we truly are. When YOU are present to all the goodness that you are completely at cause for in your life, the way you see yourself begins to shift. You will begin to relate to yourself as someone who is competent, skilful, productive, creative, amazing, successful, valuable, worthy and infinitely beautiful in every way.

Stop waiting for other people to give you what you want- give it to yourself and take your power back. Get into your on purpose power flow and rock your life by your design.

How Lists Keep Me Sane and On Purpose- Day 88: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Sometimes we all need a little reminder to stay on point.

Today I wrote out a list of 20 Things I Want to Remember to do Each Day to Really Rock Life. This list is ever evolving because I am ever evolving.  The reason why I wrote it down and put it in a place where I can see it is:

so I actually do it

I wrote in such a way that when I read it it sounds like I’m talking directly to myself. Its kind, compassionate and the gentle nudge I sometimes require to stay on the ball with everything. I know there are things I will forget to do, which in the past have had a massive impact on my success. By making them present to myself each day I have no real reason to drop the ball.

Kelsey Grant radical self love

Writing things out also helps me feel grounded, I feel like my thoughts are all in one place. Some people do really well with virtual organization tools and I prefer the good old paper and pen route. I’ve learned myself well enough to know what really works for me. I could expend copious amounts of time and energy ‘trying’ to change the way I am and force it to be a perceived  ‘better’ or ‘more efficient’ way OR I can own who I am, accept the ways in which I best process information aka thrive and flow and simply act in alignment.

Kelsey Grant radical self loveHere is the thing. Contrary to what you may think or have been told, YOU and only YOU know deep down what is best for you. I as a coach I have learned I can only offer possible alternatives and perspectives to enhance a clients experience of flow. When it comes down to it though, it is you who makes the final call of what is best for you and your life. In my experience there isn’t ever a one size fits all model that works for success, productivity and ultimately life.

 

 

Kelsey Grant radical self loveWe all have unique paths, with our own set of hidden talents, present strengths and areas of growth and expansion. The more time we spend resisting how we are the more time we spend feeling unhappy, unfulfilled and experiencing contrast. When you get real with yourself about who you are, how you operate and what you need, life becomes a lot more enjoyable. From there you are able to design your life and the way you go through it to be in harmony with your strengths and areas of challenge.

 

 

I’m giving up questioning/ second guessing myself and instead I’m claiming ownership of my life and my experience. To be a beacon of inspiration and light I know I must stay in alignment with my heart. This means doing life in a way that makes sense to me and not always will it please or make sense to others. To be perfectly frank I am not here to people please, I am here to be an example of love, inspiration and intimacy. I can only do this when I am in alignment with my truth.

This doesn’t mean I think I know everything and stop learning and being open to change. Quite the contrary. I am a student of life and I will always be learning, growing and evolving. I will definitely come across tools which will make my experience flow even more seamlessly and I am committed to integrating the tools that feel right in my heart and are in alignment with who I am. These types of tools  will always allow me to maintain my personal integrity and knowing of what’s right for me while assisting me in fine tuning my systems, processes and abilities. So here is my list for you lovers to see, be inspired by and model if you feel so inclined! Sharing is caring after all!

To Really Rock It Remember to Do These Everyday:

  1. Gratitude
  2. Meditate
  3. Learn something new (minimum 1hr)
  4. Schedule FB post for RSL
  5. Blog for RSL
  6. Check RSL email
  7. Respond to any and all messages in the FB inbox/email inbox
  8. Take time for you
  9. Laugh
  10. Smooch and love all over your man. Make sure he knows how much he’s loved
  11. Create something new
  12. Day dream
  13. Act on the guidance you are given
  14. Hydrate
  15. Remember to eat and eat well
  16. Give yourself credit for your accomplishments
  17. Write down your appointments and committments
  18. Be kind
  19. Smile. Smiling at strangers gets more points
  20. Move your body- walking, yoga, sex, gym- any type of exercise will do just do something active

There you have it lovers. My daily list.

If you are ready to take the plunge and start rocking full control over your life feel free to check out our RSL workshop this month. We have a live event and a virtual option. This month we are diving into the theme “Getting Unstuck- How to Really Rock It When Sh*t Hits the Fan”. BAM!!! Lets doooooo this!
