Stillness is essentially the art of cultivating space in our lives so that we can become an open channel for inspiration, synchronicity, and abundance. At least that’s my take on it. It is not just another avoidance tactic. It’s a practice, it’s active, it’s presence. As I’ve been playing with creating more stillness in my own life recently, I’ve been witness to its awesome magnetism. Removing distractions and restlessness from our lives becomes a direct and powerful message to the universe that we are not only ready for the thing we are wanting to create; but also, that we have space mentally, physically, and emotionally to nurture it when it comes in.Read More
“In every moment the Universe is conspiring to bring me toward right-minded thinking and the energy of love.” -The Universe Has Your Back cards by Gabby Bernstein
As I mentioned in my 1st post, I’ve been moving through the process of a kundalini awakening. A kundalini awakening is the reactivation and alignment of each chakra starting at the root and moving up one by one through the crown. It usually involves the rebalancing of each of those energy centers in the body and signals major transformation for the person experiencing it. I am not an expert. I only know from my experience, but the process has been an incredibly intuitive one and has coincided with some major healing and transformations within me physically, mentally, and spiritually. My awakening started in early July, 2018 and I’ve been slowly moving through and balancing each chakra since then. I didn’t realize I was working through this process until I was in my solar plexus and moving into my heart chakra…that’s how naturally it has all flowed for me. But my journal entries and daily intentions from those early months are so powerfully aligned with the chakras I was moving through at that point and it’s pretty cool. Each chakra has taken about a month and a half to move through. Three weeks ago I got the hit that I was finished with expanding my 3rd eye chakra and that I was moving into my crown.Read More
‘I am mentally and emotionally equipped to enjoy a prosperous and loving life. It is my birthright to deserve all good. I claim my good.’ -Power Thought Cards by Louise Hay
July 7th, 2018. On that day, I decided to cut everything out of my life that was extraneous…I committed myself to 3 months of it (all this based mainly on my intuition at the time). At that point I was suffering from the following symptoms:
Excessive weight I could never keep off no matter how much I’ve tried in my life (and believe me, I’ve TRIED).
An up and down/roller coster relationship with food (and my body) that mirrored my relationships with men…indulging and then starving myself…overall just so fearful about certain foods; and also, commitment and intimacy.
Chronic and debilitating lower back and hip pain that I had always just chocked up to being a bartender and something I was just meant to suffer through.
Nonexistent periods unless I was on the pill, which made me feel crazy and not like myself. This has been a trend my whole life. (As you might notice, a lot of my symptoms are sacral chakra related…more on that down the line…)
Intense unexplained guilt and shame that made it hard for me to be vulnerable and go after and receive the things that I wanted.
Anxiety and paranoia….never feeling safe in my own skin.
Exhaustion, moodiness, resentment, and all the other shitty feelings that come with being at your emotional rock bottom.
People pleasing…overextending myself to others in my personal life and at work…not believing I was worthy enough just as I am…giving too much at the expense of my own needs and desires and instead of asking for what I need, just assuming rejection and abandonment and letting the story of ‘I won’t be shown up for’ repeat itself over and over.
Let’s jump back to January 2016 real quick…Read More
