On Saturday I was getting ready to attend my first charity gala here in Las Vegas to support St.Judes Children’s Research Hospital. I bought a beautiful long blue gown, a pair of silver heels and then went to get my hair and make-up done. I sat at the salon for nearly two hours and when it was finished I looked barely recognizable to myself. My face was caked in make-up that aged me incredibly. I’m 36, but looked a lot older. My eyes were so smokey that I had miraculously been transformed into a cartoon-esque raccoon. And what the hell is contouring? I had brown make-up streaks all over my face to create the effect of having had ‘work done’. My softness had vanished and I was my make-up artist’s definition of ‘fierce.’ Work it baby, work it.

I sat in the car before driving home with a heavy heart and wondered what my husband would say. Not that I needed his approval, but my time is very valuable and I just spent 2 hours being made to look like a total stranger to myself. It felt icky and I knew I had to take action.

Usually I like wearing very little make up at all – just tinted sunscreen, winged liner, mascara, rosy cheeks, and some sparkly eye shadow. I could barely see through the spider-like false lashes. My daughter greeted me at the house and said that I looked like Kim Kardashian. This was a very clear sign from the Universe I hadn’t quite achieved the look I desired.

Sean (my hubs) is the type of guy that tells me I look beautiful at the weirdest moments. You know, when I haven’t brushed my hair, or have a cold etc. My husband’s reaction was priceless. He was teetering on the line between wanting to tell me I looked beautiful and not wanting to hurt my feelings because I looked like something from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. We laughed a lot about it. With less than 2 hours until the gala, I decided to peel back the make up and soften the look. I couldn’t spend a whole evening hidden behind a mask.

A few dozen baby wipes swept over my face later, and a few minor touch-ups with my own make-up stash, I was feeling back to normal. See from the picture below that it was CAKED on and my eyebrows looked monstrous.

EXHIBIT A.

It got me thinking about people that walk through life thinking that they need to look a certain way or behave a certain way in order to gain the approval of others. The media bombards women with perceived ideals of beauty and profits from making people not feel very good about themselves in order to invest in the next big gimmick such as anti-aging cream, weight loss solutions and other “magic beans” that could never create sustainable inner transformation.

Self acceptance is magical.

The older I get, the less I give two flying fruitcakes about being like anyone else.

On the evening of the gala we walked through the Encore casino past lines of young girls waiting to get into a nightclub. There was an obvious uniform, which consisted of make-up to make them look older than they are (seriously, what’s the rush?), the shortest of short skirts, and the thickest energy of ‘see me’ and ‘make me feel visible and validated.’ Now don’t get me wrong, it’s an important human need to be visible and validated but when we don’t truly embrace our own uniqueness then it compounds into issues relating to our worthiness.

Sadly, young girls are the most susceptible to becoming lemmings. These girls grow into women that then have daughters that perpetuate the cycle of not feeling good enough. It’s sad, but we must send them love and compassion and not judgment, because life will change them. It changed me, I used to be the same.

When we don’t feel worthy it blocks the flow of energy to manifest the things we want into our lives.

We need to be our true, authentic self and allow our unique gifts to shine in the world. We need to teach our daughters (and sons) not to follow blindly but to tune into their own iconic nature and essence.

By loving who you are RIGHT NOW and not wishing everything would be different, then you are showing the Universe that you are ready for expansion. You are truly grateful for where you’re at in your life right now and that the present moment is nurturing you for the highest and greatest good.

A brave mother got up to speak at the gala about her daughter’s fight to beat cancer. The little girl was so beautiful even though she was missing hair, very pale, and had clearly been gravely ill. It was the beautiful perspective needed to remember it’s not about make-up, fancy clothes or the silly things we do to feel visible no matter what age we are – it’s the HUMANITY of love and compassion that we offer to one another no matter what the situation that will illuminate a beautiful path of consciousness to unfold.

If you love reading and getting inspired by people’s stories of triumph over adversity then you will adore my bestselling Adventures In Manifesting series. You’ll cry, you’ll laugh, and you’ll celebrate the journeys that these incredible souls travelled to manifest their desires. If you’re looking for some inspiration, this is it. 

ADVENTURES IN MANIFESTING

Our bodies are the beautiful vessels that contain and carry our souls throughout life. They teach us how to pay attention to our environment, our relationships, our overall wellness, and how to thrive on a day-to-day basis. Some of us LOVE our bodies, some of us tolerate our bodies, but sadly there are many of us that just downright hate our bodies as well. We want them to be different in some way – perhaps a different shape, texture, size, and the list goes on. Striving to make peace with our physicality can be a life-long spiritual journey but the bottom line is this…

Loving your body (or in the least feeling grateful for the way it serves you) is honoring your soul and honoring the Universe for trusting you to live life though the magnificent vessel that you are.

If we live in a state of rejecting a major part of who we are, we then end up blocking our flow of energy as we move throughout life. We teach our children to be self-conscious and that they aren’t worthy enough to live life to their fullest potential. We literally stifle the willingness to be open to all possibilities. By shining a light on our body issues we actually help to lift the burden. As a society we MUST promote more self acceptance and body confidence, otherwise there will be millions of people pushing the self destruct button because they never feel like they are enough.

Last week I did something that I never thought I would do. Now this might sound a little crazy to you, but at nearly 37 years old I had MY VERY FIRST PEDICURE. Why did it take me so long? Because I was scared of the energy.

Let me explain a little further…

My feet kind of look like doll’s feet and I’ve always felt self-conscious of my puffy little tootsies. I decided to flip this to gratitude: my feet hold me up and they carry me through life. During the pedicure my feet LOVED being massaged and pampered. In fact the lady that was working on my feet said she could feel how much my toes were responding to the treatment. The reason I’d always avoided pedicures was because I held the belief for so long that I would take on board the feelings and weird vibrations in some negative way. Also, I never saw my mother go for pedicures because she doesn’t like people touching her feet without it freaking her out.

It’s these little bullshit rules that we carry around with us through life that can prevent us from experiencing so much joy. I believe my silly ‘spiritual snobbery’ rules were a clever smokescreen for my lack of feeling worthy enough to take care of myself.

The truth was that my judgement was getting in the way. I was choosing FEAR over LOVE and missing out on decades of foot love. It got me thinking about the other areas in my life that I block the flow of abundance. After all, our beliefs are the gatekeepers to our life experience. We can either approach everything with an open or closed heart and that will determine the fulfillment we allow ourselves to be involved in during our lives.

I’ve been anorexic, bulimic, struggling to lose the baby weight, riddled with loose skin, stretch marks, and the list goes on. In all honestly I have been out of my body for most of my adult life, but I’m thankful to now be aware that’s not the way I want to continue to play the game.  Because here’s the thing…

Being spiritually integrated means that all three elements (mind, body, spirit) of my being are working together to run the show. If I deny the existence of one of those important elements it creates imbalance and discord. I said to my husband yesterday that you couldn’t pay me enough money to want to be in my twenties again. What I know for sure is that the older I get, the more comfortable and accepting I am of my perceived (usually self-perceived) “flaws”. In fact, they’re not flaws at all because that would imply that something is less than perfect or “wrong”. The bumps, lines, lumps and wobbly bits all tell a story. It’s my temple, and it’s now time to rise up and take care of myself in the form of pedicures, massages, regular hair visits and other delicious forms of pampering because I AM WORTHY and so are you.

ADVENTURES IN MANIFESTING

We all have intuitive powers that help to guide us through life. Many people share stories of how listening to certain gut feelings spared them and saved them from incredibly dangerous and not-so-fun situations. Sometimes the messages can be extremely subtle and tricky to discern. These can range from a teeny-tiny gut feeling to the innate knowing that something just doesn’t feel good.

Intuition is like a muscle, the more you work at developing it, the stronger it will become. This is an incredibly powerful tool in your spiritual toolbox to work with. Here are 7 Signs from Your Higher Self that you just can’t afford to ignore…

1. When you feel like something just isn’t right.

You know in your gut when something just doesn’t feel right. I remember after I was suffering miscarriage after miscarriage the doctors couldn’t find the physical reason I kept losing the babies. Everything was tested, and everything seemed fine and in good working order. However, on a deep level I felt like because I had worked so hard on the “spiritual reasons” my baby wasn’t manifesting there still had to be a “physical reason” why I could only stay pregnant for up to 10 or 11 weeks. It wasn’t until I moved states and found a more progressive doctor that she tested me for a gene mutation called MTHFR. Turned out that this was the reason I suffered recurring miscarriages. So I guess the moral of this story is to go with your gut, follow those hunches and keep seeking second and third opinions until your situation “feels right” again. Our intuitive guidance system is such a blessing, we must remember how to use those bullshit detectors to their full capacity.

A message from you higher self: BELIEVE BEYOND WHAT YOU CAN SEE

2. When a little voice whispers a message to you.

Sometimes we hear little voices that give us messages and snippets of wisdom that will help us out in our lives in some way.  To be clear, these are NOT the same types of voices that so-called “crazy” people might be listening to. I’m talking about an intuitive connection to your higher self that is often helping you in your times of need. These could be the voice of your spirit guides or guardian angels etc.

I remember one day when my husband Sean and I were picking up the kids from school. We were running late, so he told me to get out of the car at the stop light and he’d find somewhere to park. I heard a strong voice in my head say “NO” just as I was about to open the car door. As I paused, a school bus went speeding right by us. If I hadn’t of taken that pause and listened to the voice I would have been hit by that bus. I was extremely grateful that I listened, otherwise I wouldn’t be here to be telling that story.

A message from you higher self: LISTEN

3. When you see signs of alignment and choose to ignore them.

When you are on a spiritual journey and you’re living your life by cultivating conscious awareness, signs of alignment from the Universe are frequently presented to you. These signs can be messages from your higher self that you are on the right path. My husband Sean and I see rainbows as a sign of alignment. We saw one on the day we met, the day we got engaged and in various other times when we have launched new ventures within our company.

But when you hold and intention dear to your heart and you are then presented with signs that you choose to ignore, then energetic resistance begins to build up. Many of us tend to put our own needs last. We think that because we have children, or because we don’t have enough money or other various excuses that we are unable to follow our dreams. This kind of thinking, where we willfully reject the signs of alignment is flawed. You have the power to see and view the world around you as a mirror of your own consciousness. If you see that white rabbit, you need to follow it. It will help your soul to expand and grow in miraculous ways. It’s time to stop being fearful of living to your full potential.

A message from you higher self: SEE THE SIGNS AS TIME TO TAKE ACTION TOWARDS YOUR DREAMS

4. When you have recurring dreams or experience recurring synchronicities.

Do you have the same tidal wave dream over and over again? Or do you see the same person showing up in different locations all over your city? When the energetic signature patterns of life are in our awareness there is usually a reason behind it. It’s a message… perhaps and instruction and sometimes a warning. Your job is to follow the clues and see if you can make sense of the reason the information is being presented to you on a regular basis.

A message from you higher self: SEEK THE MEANING

5. When your needs aren’t being met in a relationship.

When you don’t use your voice in a relationship then the Universe will pick up the pace of your spiritual lessons and speak for you. If you know in your heart that your relationship isn’t working and you stay without making an attempt to shine a light on the situation then you are dishonoring yourself at a very deep level. You are worthy of your needs being met. You are worthy to be loved and treated in a way that makes you feeling amazing. If you’re currently feeling this way, then see it as a sign that deep transformation needs to take place. Whether you stay or you leave, a decision needs to be made, before it’s made for you.

A message from you higher self: YOU ARE WORTHY

6. When you have thoughts that don’t make sense.

Have you ever had a thought about someone that didn’t make any sense and then a deep or dark secret was exposed and your intuition was verified? Sometimes when we follow these hunches about people we fall into the trap of judging unfairly. However, there is a really delicate balance to strike where if you have a certain thought about someone then there must be a vibrational match to their energy somehow. The key is to not allow fear to govern your instincts. For instance, you can’t constantly be checking your partners phone to see if they’re cheating on you because more that likely you will create that experience from your lack of trust. But when you have a random thought or a hunch about someone or something just allow it to be and don’t interfere. Send the thoughts love and allow them to play out as they are meant to.

A message from you higher self: SOMETIMES YOU CAN BE WRONG AND IT’S OKAY

7. When you ignore ongoing health issues and pretend they’ll go away.

You might have a pesky cough that doesn’t seem to go away, or a mole that keeps changing color, or a weird lump that you are trying to ignore. Whatever it is, you really can’t afford to ignore the health symptoms that are being presented to you. My mother-in-law is vigilant at getting a breast examination each year and it literally saved her life when she was diagnosed with breast cancer at an early stage. Our bodies work just like anything else in our lives, if you ignore problems then they will get bigger until you do something about them.

A message from you higher self: PAY ATTENTION TO THE FEEDBACK YOU FEEL IN YOUR BODY


 

In order to manifest more signs of alignment into your life you need to be ready to SPARK a deeper connection with the Universe.  If you’re ready to go on a spiritual adventure and quest then I would highly recommend my Ancient Manifesting Ritual. This will help to get out of your own way and help you to strengthen your intuition. xo

Have you ever felt like you were an energetic sponge? As soon as you sense even the tiniest tincture of negative energy you’re on high alert to protect yourself?

Have you had an interaction with someone that was sad or depressed and then wonder why you couldn’t shake the feeling of sadness for the rest of the day? Do you cry at the drop of a hat? Do you experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows?

If this sounds like you, then more than likely you have the beautiful gift of being an empath. With the ownership of this incredible blessing, you need to learn some pretty intense energy management tools in order to walk through this life without letting fear rule the realm.

See yourself surrounded in white light and trust that nothing can harm you without your own permission.

Here are 7 Signs That You Are A Highly Sensitive Person

1. You feel the emotions of others

This is often triggered when you are in close proximity to someone. You might shake their hand and get a flash of their porn addiction, how much resentment they hold towards their mother or that they question their sexuality. These “downloads” always need to be met with compassion.

Empath PowerUp: Choose to reframe the vibrational message as an opportunity to see the beautiful humanity of the situation. Rise above judgment and send love to the person you’re interacting with.

2. Your intuition is usually on fire

An empath will usually be able to anticipate an outcome if something is going to work out, or if something is destined to take a detour. An empath has been blessed with the incredible gift of discernment and not only knows what is best for themselves, but has the insight to tune into what will serve others as well.

Empath PowerUp: Don’t be a pain in the bum about this gift. You risk coming across as a know-it-all and people need to be able to learn how to cultivate their own levels of discernment.

3. You love alone time

The empath needs/craves/desires the sweet bliss of time alone in order to recharge their spiritual batteries. An empath adores their own company and can’t return to a state of balance without time that is blocked out to recalibrate.

Empath PowerUp: Self-care is so important as an empath. Make sure you schedule time for yourself and fully immense yourself in the bliss of being on your own.

4. You’re a picky eater

The weird vibes of an empath can get triggered frequently by food, restaurants and how the meals are prepared. You might find yourself taking on board the energy of the food you are eating. The skilled empath will map out certain places they will eat, and certain places that don’t meet the vibe-criteria.

Empath PowerUp: Send your food love in order to raise the vibration BEFORE you eat it. Ask the Universe to bless your meal for the ultimate nourishment of your temple (your body).

5. Cemetaries are beautiful, but they freak you out

Empaths get swept into the beauty and mystical nature of the non-physical realm. However, at cemetaries, some hospitals and places where ‘bad shit has gone down’ can manifest as strong intuitive nudges to get out of there as soon as possible. Most empaths can identify a bodily sensation that occurs when they sense eerie energy. I usually feel it in my knees, oddly enough.

Empath PowerUp: See yourself protected, rise above fear and thank the Universe for the gift of energy discernment.

6. Arcades, hotel beds and crowds are challenging

Thought forms are a massive hurdle for empaths, especially in crowds. Since they tend to be overly sensitive to sounds, bright lights and close proximity to others, the empath doesn’t really like to spend too much time touching stuff that others have touched. This take Germaphobia to a whole new level, because empaths can accidentally sleep in the wrong bed at a hotel and have a horrible night sleep.

Empath PowerUp: Say a prayer (or meditation) and invocation for protection BEFORE entering into those situations. The more you are connected to the Universal power, the less your empathic super-powers will bother you.

7. You have an awesome bullshit detector

By far, being equipt with a bullshit detector is one of the best gifts that an empath possesses. The empath can smell a liar a mile away. The empath knows when someone is trustworthy or when someone is full of shit. The fun part of this equation is standing back and witnessing the energy of misleading information. It can be an opportunity to offer compassion and to use your energy wisely.

Empath PowerUp: As an empath that encounters false, fake, perhaps even narcissistic people, you have the power to send them love and show them compassion. After all, people are only deceitful when they are suffering.

How to Use Affirmations to Heal Your Life

We all have emotional wounds or “issues” that need a little more love and attention in order to heal. One of the fastest ways to inject new and miraculous energy into your life is to use the power of affirmations. They truly work wonders and can radically lift you up from having issues with worthiness, fear or limitation to shining your inner light a hell of a lot brighter.

So what are affirmations?

Affirmations are positive statements that you repeat over and over again in order to imprint your subconscious mind. They are usually words that trigger an emotional reaction or response within you that brings up the healing that needs to take place. There will almost always be resistance that will appear in order to challenge you. This is a natural and perfectly normal part of the process. Your job is to see beyond the “monkey mind’ and keep moving forward regardless.

What affirmations are NOT…

Affirmations are not magic beans, band-aid solutions or a clever way to trick the Universe into thinking that you have your shit together, when clearly you don’t (at present). Affirmations will not work unless you are willing to dive into the emotional work that needs to be done and be truly HONEST about where you’re at.

How do they work?

How it works is that words that inspire, empower and excite you have the power to override the current programming you have in your mind and help to form new beliefs which in turn will help to shift the landscape of your current reality. You’re essentially raising your vibration and increasing the positive energy of your soul’s frequency.

Affirmations are a method to bring about newfound change in your life through the process of repetition. The idea is that you find an empowering affirmation that you resonate with within your heart and either write it out or place a printed copy somewhere in your constant awareness. It could be on the bathroom mirror, the corner of your computer screen or in a little pocket in your purse. Every time you see the affirmation you, repeat (or imprint) the affirmation over and over again until it sticks to your soul. You also need to feel the feeling the affirmation will give you.

Let’s try a little exercise together…

I want you to use the affirmation I AM WORTHY.

Say it now, (silently). Say it again. Notice how you feel and round up the negative feelings or itty bitty feelings of resistances and imagine yourself throwing them out because they no longer serve you. I AM WORTHY. How to deal with doubt Once you start to use affirmations, you will notice that the better you get at decluttering the icky feelings as they arise the stronger your resolve will be. A secret to truly mastering affirmations: The Universe cannot differentiate between what is happening in the physical realm, or what is happening and being imprinted in the spiritual realm. When you use your affirmation as if it has already happened, then you strengthen your manifesting power. I have taught thousands of people about this in my Ancient Manifesting Ritual. So if you truly want to change and heal your life then make sure you are showing gratitude to the Universe as if it has already happened and you are already living it.

I know without a shadow of a doubt that you’re going to LOVE it.  It’s a creative way to use your affirmations in ACTION. Try it and see for yourself. xo

Something really interesting happens when we don’t feel worthy enough to step up into our own magnificence. We shrink ourselves in order to make others around us feel comfortable. We undervalue the power we have to take a stand and make a difference or to manifest what we desire. Can you relate to this? Or does this sound like someone you know?

The “people pleasers” typically don’t know how to say NO, to set firm boundaries and to use their vote to be heard in a situation that requires compromise or negotiation. I know this all very well because I’ve experienced this firsthand.

What happens as the result of not speaking up time and time again is an extremely destructive pattern that starts to manifest in a myriad of other not-so-appealing ways such as anger, depression, overwhelm, resentment and the nasty long-ass list of other things that tend to unravel.

The point of power you have is in the way you express yourself.

As humans we don’t all have to agree on things. So if someone says something that ruffles your feathers you absolutely have permission to speak your mind. It also works the other way where you should feel entitled to share your perspective without fear of being judged. You just can’t be a doormat because you’re wasting precious time.

When you are unable to use your voice then you create an block in your flow of energy. Things will become increasingly more difficult to manifest until you develop and strengthen the spiritual muscle required to honor yourself and be heard.

But where can you begin?

It starts with practice and cultivating awareness in each moment that presents you with an opportunity to voice your opinion, comment or that requires an answer. You need to feel your way into the situation and ask yourself if you’re in alignment with whatever is being presented to you or asked of you.

Learn how to delay your responses so you can go away and think about them. This helps the “people pleaser” to train themselves out of wanting the immediate gratification of approval by saying “yes” when they’re not fully convinced. This is a chronic issue for people that like to put themselves before others.

Communication is where the most of your self-honoring will take place. So for instance, if someone says something that completely revolts you, or is derogatory in any way, you need to know where to draw the line and feel totally okay speaking up.

After all, it’s a human need to want to be visible, to be heard and to be respected. So when you’re constantly apologizing to people for yourself and your needs then you create a massive disconnect within your heart. Your goals, dreams, wishes and desires literally come to a stand still until you can OWN them with pride, with enthusiasm and with fearless excitement that you are on an inner journey to nurture yourself and your soul.

Life is too short to not create the world around us, in a way that makes us feel empowered.

MANIFEST-COURSE

It can be extremely frustrating when your loved ones don’t feel good, are unable to see your perspective, share your beliefs, or experience true and profound joy in their lives. It can be an emotionally challenging time that’s for sure.

I see concern rise in many of my manifesting students when they first start on their “spiritual path” and realize that their husbands (or wives) are on a completely different page. The negativity and pessimism their spouses experience tend to become magnified and they make them wrong for not believing in unlimited possibilities and seeing things differently. There’s a beautiful opportunity to learn something from this experience. 

This kind of attitude doesn’t just exist in a so-called “spiritual” capacity either. You could be perfectly happy in your life and experiencing great financial success while certain members of your family or friendship circle could cut you out of their lives because they might be jealous, insecure, not sure how to feel and even indifferent. Again, there’s a beautiful opportunity to learn something from this experience.

This kind of “emotional isolation” can also happen in families where there is a presence of addiction in various forms, such as alcohol or drug abuse. The “addict” will remove themselves from the family for various reasons which can be heartbreakingly painful for the parents and other family members involved. I know this one well because I have a relative that has cut me out of their life. It really hurts and concerns me from time to time, but I just have to remember to send them love and hope that life is treating them well.

So no matter who it is in your life that isn’t on the same page as you are right now here are 5 Ways to Hold Space for Loved Ones When They Can’t See the Light…

1. YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR HOW OTHERS FEEL

This is a tricky one for the “people pleasers” out there. You must make this your mantra and hold your own emotions as still as an oak tree. You do not have emotional control over how another chooses to respond. It’s not your business. Once you truly remember this concept and use it, then you are acting from a place of beautiful self care and respect for your soul.

AFFIRMATION: I am only in control of my own emotions.

2. YOU DON’T HAVE TO FIX EVERYTHING

You are not broken, your loved one is not broken and so if it ‘aint broke don’t fix it. Everything is perfect in its imperfection. Just remember that you can’t sugarcoat situation, protect people from the pain they are destined to experience. When in fact you’re just creating pain for yourself by trying to meddle.

AFFIRMATION: Everything is unfolding in life as it is meant to.

3. FOCUS ON YOURSELF AND YOUR OWN LIFE

Acts of self care need to be your focus. When you learn how to show up in your own life, on your own terms then a certain magic is activated. Take time on a daily basis that is just for you. Being “selfish” is totally fine so that you have more to give to your loved ones around you.

AFFIRMATION: I love my life and look after myself each and every day.

4. SEND THEM LOVE BY HOLDING SPACE FOR THEIR ULTIMATE SPIRITUAL EXPANSION

Close your eyes for a moment and think of the person that’s on a different page to you, holds different beliefs, is someone you have to forgive, is a batshit crazy person that has rattled your cage and SEND THEM LOVE. See the person surrounded in white light and hold space for them to live a life free from distress. See them feeling joyful, safe, secure, prosperous and happy.

AFFIRMATION: I wish for myself what I wish for others.

5. THANK THEM FOR BEING YOUR TEACHER

Lastly, and most importantly, we need to remember that this beautiful Universe is a big mirror. Everything shows up as a beautiful reflection of our own souls for us to grow and expand from as a lesson. Thank your loved one for teaching you compassion, for teaching you humility, unconditional love and for teaching you forgiveness.

AFFIRMATION: I am open to receiving the lessons that the Universe has to offer.

If you would love to try a powerful and transformative ritual that will get you out of your head and into your heart then please check out my Ancient Manifesting Ritual. It shows you how to take time for yourself each day to focus on your goals, dreams, wishes and desires.

I know without a shadow of a doubt that you’re going to LOVE it. xo

We are about to begin a beautiful brand spankin’ new year and there is no better time to review and examine the limiting beliefs that prevent us from living life to the fullest. By letting go of energetic patterns that no longer serve our lives we naturally allow for happiness to make a much needed appearance in our day to day lives. By trying to “give up” the following 15 things, you open your heart to a profound shift in your consciousness and help you to manifest your desires.

1. GIVE UP MAKING RESOLUTIONS

Why? Because they simply don’t work. There have even been countless studies that show that people can’t seem to stick to new diets and saving money because they don’t create powerful enough habits that will withstand the resistance they encounter. The alternative? Set powerful intentions instead and create a grand vision for your life and an actionable plan rather than a vague one.

2. GIVE UP CERTAIN LANGUAGE PATTERNS

Get rid of the following words and phrases from your vocabulary…

Hate // I can’t // I won’t // You’re wrong // I’m right // It’s always // Everything always // It’s impossible // It won’t happen

Pretty much anything that makes massive sweeping and limiting statements which prevent you from being open to all possibilities and ways that things can manifest into your life.

3. GIVE UP RESPONSIBILITY FOR HOW OTHERS FEEL

When you truly let go of this one you will notice a newfound sense of freedom. A weight is lifted and a burden is no longer on your shoulders to take responsibility for things beyond your control. Happiness is the natural byproduct of letting go of codependent behavioral patterns like this one.

4. GIVE UP DRAMA

Stop gossiping, bitching, complaining or adding fuel to the fire. By consciously choosing not to indulge in pettiness then you free your consciousness up and stop blocking the flow of all good things.

5. GIVE UP THINGS YOU KNOW DULL YOUR INTUITION

Think back to a time where your intuitive faculties were on fire….

What were you doing? Eating? Reading? Meditation practice perhaps? Do whatever you can in order to spark a deeper connection with the Universe. If this means giving up coffee or booze, then try it. If this means saying goodbye to toxic relationships or binge watching crappy TV shows…then you know what to do.

Feed your soul with things that will make your intuition flourish and be of the highest service to yourself and others.

6. GIVE UP SAYING NO

Just like in the movie ‘YES MAN’ with Jim Carrey you need to learn how to accept opportunities and put yourself out there. YES is a powerful affirmation to the Universe that you are ready for serious manifesting action. With the caveat that the invitation you are accepting is totally safe and empowering … then GO FOR IT! Yes, is freeing. It will get you out of your comfort zone and allow for new things to be drawn into your reality. Yes, yes, yes.

7. GIVE UP SAYING YES

Nope. I don’t think so. It’s not gonna happen. Sometimes the “people pleasing” person will say yes even when they don’t really want to.

Be nice about declining offers and feel perfectly worthy enough to say no to stuff you don’t want to do. NO can be really empowering to use effectively. Learning how to say no is a gift, as long as it’s done with conscious awareness. It’s actually a really important element to self-care and creating time to nurture yourself.

8. GIVE UP BEING DISCONNECTED FROM YOUR BODY

When you are disconnected from your body you can’t truly live a happy and inspired lifestyle that you deserve. One of the best ways to give your body love is to feed yourself nourishing food. Try eating vibrant and alive foods that are all colors of the rainbow. This will amplify your manifesting powers. The lighter your vibration, the more flow and happiness you will have in your life.

9. GIVE UP THE PAST

Why? Because it doesn’t exist. And if it still does have a hold on your heart then there is some healing to do.

10. GIVE UP CLUTTER + ACCUMULATING STUFF

As a society we consume way more than we actually need. Make it a new rule in the New Year to only buy things if you truly LOVE them or need them. Ask yourself before every purchase if you are acquiring a new item because it will make your life better in some way. If yes, then buy it.

11. GIVE UP SEEKING APPROVAL

The approval seeking cycle can run pretty deep in some people. Once you learn to see that what other people think of you is none of your business, then your life will begin to blossom and you can breathe a sigh of relief. Own your decisions, don’t second guess yourself and stand strong in your unique perspective on life.

12. GIVE UP PERFECTION

Nothing will ever be perfect, it will always present itself in the way it’s meant to. Learning to let go of perfection with the manifesting process and learning to be happy can be one of the most freeing and liberating experiences you will have. It also, creates space for non-judgment to reign which is a beautiful thing and frees up the energy for things to manifest in divine timing.

13. GIVE UP EXPECTATIONS OF OTHERS

You always have to lower your expectations or at lease not have any at all. This way you don’t become disappointed and you release the need to control others. Let other people live life to the beat of their own drum.

14. GIVE UP YOUR COMFORT ZONE

Feel the fear and do it anyway. Just jump. Nothing awesome never originated from a comfort zone.

15. GIVE UP “SHOULDS”

My Nana Mollie used to peel the banana from the non-stalk end – really it made no sense. When questioned she would say it’s ‘A way’ and not ‘THE way’ – meaning that there multiple ways to do things in life.

It is our own programming that makes us think we have things figured out better or more efficient than someone else. Actually, it’s pure arrogance to think we have the right to tell people how they should or shouldn’t behave.

Judgement of others is an inability to see that there are infinite perspectives and ways of doing things.
