You're ALWAYS Communicating What You Want

Intention always get’s communicated. Just think of the pushy sales person who suddenly wants to "catch up" after they take on their new role selling a product. 

We have a thing called mirror neurons that detect in others what their intention is at a level beneath the words that what the say. I think mirror neurons are THE most intriguing recent discovery in neuroscience!

Lessons of 2017

We think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don't really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It's just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy” - Pema Chodron

Standing Alongside

No Anxiety About Imperfection

Yet to be without anxiety about non perfection, to understand it as Elizabeth Küber- Ross puts it, 'I'm not okay, you're not okay and that's okay,' brings a wholeness and true joy, an ability to enter all the compartments of our life, to feel every feeling, to live in our body and to know true freedom - Jack Kornfield

Why I'm No Longer a Positive Person

Positivity has drastically stalled my growth and progress. I’ve stayed in cycles being regularly derailed, avoided making important choices and taken much longer to get to a state of happiness, ease and flow because I’ve only looked at one side of the coin. 

Allow - by Danna Faulds

Self-compassion teaches us how to relate wisely to our pain to alleviate suffering. 
If we close our heart to avoid the pain, we also close ourselves to the precious moments of love, joy, beauty and connection. 

What Are You Believing About Yourself?

We are acutely aware of the feelings of shame, fear, worry, or being deficient that these limiting core beliefs leave us with, however we don’t often understand why we feel so bad or how to heal these feelings. 
These feelings make us try harder, to overthink what to do next and they leave us worrying and feeling deficient.

How To Decrease Worry and Stress

Self-compassionate people experience less fear, irritability or distress than those with less self-compassion. It still arises but doesn’t come up as often, last as long and its not as persistent. .

Self-compassion directly counters these insecurities. We go to the source - core beliefs about ourself and our world, rather than trying to change how we feel with food, wine, social media, shopping etc

What Do You Feel?

Mindfulness meditation for me has given me an inner freedom. I love the greater level of understanding it provides when I’m courageous enough to sit with all that is arising in me. A world of choices open up instead of a feeling of helplessness or fear. I can give to myself, or ask from others, what it is I truly need.

Change Your Brain, Change Your Life

The aim of meditation isn’t to relax or stop thinking. It’s a training for our mind and heart that in turn, transforms our life.

We can learn to turn down the internal inner critic, filled with self-judgments that cripple our true potential.

This changes how we respond under pressure. We can be kinder to ourselves. We make wiser choices. We are free to live in our true nature. 

Accepting Yourself As You Are

If we’re spending our time trying to be a certain way that’s not part of our natural expression, but is part of who we think we should be, we’ll spend our whole life judging ourself for not being good enough. We feel a chronic state of fear, shame and unworthiness
