Now is the time to step fully into your power. For so long you have taken the easy road, the path of least resistance, choosing to nurse the wounds and remain a victim. A victim in your relationships with family and friends, a victim of circumstance, a victim of your health, locked in a small prison of your own design. Suffering becomes a habit. Change can be very uncomfortable when you aren’t sure what will replace the story or the suffering you have nurtured for so long. Change can be uncomfortable when it requires you to feel the pain you have been suppressing for so many years. You’ve owned the story that you aren’t enough, that you aren’t worthy of love or wealth or success (whatever that looks like for you). Society has conditioned you to bury uncomfortable feelings, tip toe around the truth, drink the conformity Kool Aid and put a fake smile on your face. Well, no more, it’s time to lose all that shit that no longer serves you.
Cut that ballast that has held you down FOREVER and start owning the TRUTH about who you are. You are not your story. You are capable, you are powerful, you are smarter and stronger than you think you are. When you recognize that all the stories are just old programming waiting to be deleted, when you realize you can download the new you by making a shift and hitting delete to the things and thoughts holding you back, you will realize that 2018 is YOUR year! Every day you remain stuck in the victim mindset is a day you have lost. Every day you wash rinse repeat is a day you can’t get back! Every day is an opportunity to choose you! It is a chance to say yes to what resonates with you, what brings you joy, bringing what you DESERVE into your life. Do not be side tracked by setbacks or adverse circumstances presenting in your life. There are solutions to every problem, yes, sometimes compromises must be made, however, the longer you delay honoring yourself, the further you will have to travel to come back.
Look at the situation you are faced with and ask what is the lesson here? What am I supposed to be learning from this? Why am I triggered by this person, scenario, situation? Go deep, there is something happening to you to reveal an aspect of yourself you need to acknowledge needs work. Life is a mirror. It could be insecurity, it could be worthiness, it could be a feeling that you aren’t loved being reflected back to you. It can be so many things. Go there, own it, make a different choice in how you respond to the situation. Cry, then take ownership of your emotional stuff and move on. This life is for joy and for living. We have the honor of being born on this gorgeous planet, with all the skills, knowledge and tools to be the best versions of ourselves. To sit in the corner and nurse your wounds is the biggest loss, not only for you, but for all the people who could have benefited from your talents and gifts had you stepped fully into your power and walked the path laid out for you. Instead, you got side tracked marrying the wrong guy for the wrong reasons, taking a job that maybe enslaved you with the golden hand cuffs, denying your truth to make everyone around you like you, being who they wanted you to be.
It is time people to shine. You have the ability, to transcend your circumstances and story. You have the ability, to be the highest and best version of you. Forget what society has told you success looks like. Success looks like joy. Success looks like standing in your authentic power. Success looks like honoring yourself by doing what resonates with you and setting boundaries for people who don’t respect that. Success looks like honoring your body, it is the only physical vehicle you are given, stop lying about how you are treating your beautiful self and start loving your body! Success looks like honoring your soul with daily practices or rituals that honor you. For me, that would be waking up and taking my dog for a 40 minute walk every morning before I even start my day, it’s eating heathier and drinking more water, it’s getting enough sleep every night. Honoring myself looks like being in service to others, it’s going to yoga at night then coming home and taking a hot Himalayan salt bath with candles in the dark and meditating. Success is saying yes to me!
I just got a new car this year after 12 years of driving the same Honda Pilot. I didn’t even know a USB charger came in cars! I discovered the luxury of seat warmers! My car didn’t define me. My car served me well for 12 years, but this car brought me JOY! Something amazing happens when you start bringing joy into your life. You start expanding. Your joy energetically radiates out. It attracts more beautiful experiences and people to you. It creates opportunities you never knew were possible. The Universe starts showering you with love. I have met more people in 2 years in Houston than I did in 17 years in San Diego. Set your intentions for what you wish to create and receive. I moved here 2 years ago and set the intention of meeting fascinating people doing cool things and living in service to others. My circle has grown exponentially from day one and I am constantly blown away by the phenomenal men and women I’ve met. They are entrepreneurs, radio show hosts, metaphysical moms, photographers, make up artists, life coaches, yogis and more. They are empowered and living their best life and together we create magic. The time is NOW!
Straighten your crown and take back your power!
