Manifest Grounding

When You Experience Change

Change happens, right! You feel like everything is in order and then SURPRISE! You either embrace it or it turns your world a bit. Especially when change really throws you for a loop and your life out of whack!

Practicing

Do you have a good practice in place to adjust to change? Yes, no or working on it. Change can be good or rock your world, especially those sudden and unexpected changes. Remember you have to do what is best for you in those times of change!

How will you practice going forward in improving your ability and capacity for handling change moments?

Put Your Oxygen Mask On First!

Practicing . . . To nurture and nourish. To communicate and connect. To tune into your emotions, feelings and thoughts. To tap into what you need!

Do you find yourself pulling away and wanting to take the stakes up?

Do you want to curl into a ball? Do you just want to hide out for a while?

Practicing . . . To be flexible to better adjust and become more resilient to change. To remain as calm and level headed as possible. To listen to what you need in those moments of change. To learn how to bend and not snap!

Do you find yourself “over” . . . whelmed, stimulated, etc.

Do you find yourself tightening and constricting?

Practicing . . . To release helps you center. To let go to find your balance, especially in those times when you have no control in the change. Making the time to tune into your whole being and its needs! 


Practicing . . . Nurturing . . . Growing . . .

Processing

When you are in that change moment you tend to react not relax into the experience (unless it is good change)! It is not easy to find an even keel let alone a positive mood/attitude in those moments. Sometimes we are not even ready for a “there, there” or here’s some good advice for you. More times than not we need to process the change!

You may need to create the space you need to process the change! Stress and anxiety leads to tension and that can constrict how your body functions. A space where you can be with yourself to just be and take a breather. To release and relax. To bring your focus inward for clarity and awareness to work through the change process!


Processing . . . Being . . . Flowing . . .

Grounding

Have You Tried Grounding?

I have been reading about grounding when it comes to experiencing change! That react/run and/or fight or flight reaction. At times it is just too much to handle and process. You almost feel like you are losing your sense of self. You may be able to ground and/or center yourself by rooting your whole being to the here and now!

Rooting to the here and now is a good process to start practicing for the whole of your being!

How Do You Ground/Center/Root In Change Moments?

I think about getting physically grounded! From your feet to your fingertips to the top of your head. Standing with your feet apart and spreading your toes. Interlacing your fingers and stretching your arms above you. Breathing in and breathing out!

I think about building a solid foundation to live from! To find that stability and self security you need in times of change. To become aware of inner being to communicate, interact and connect with your whole being again. To get out of that survive mode and know this is survivable! 

I think about taking a much needed time out! To relax and rest to balance your whole being again. To recharge and re-energize. To be aware of your whole body to do a self check to determine your needs in those moments of change!

Will you tap into grounding?

  • To better root your whole being.
  • To cultivate your balance to center.
  • To focus inward on your needs.
  • To manage your time and energy more efficiently.
  • To communicate and connect as well as interact and engage YOU.
  • To have your mind and heart work as a team.
  • To better cope and become more resilient.

Being Your BFF

Your Journey of Self

Your journey of self is your very own personal story of creation! Who you are and what you create. How you journey and what you experience. To love you for you and to be your own BFF through thick and thin and everything in between!

  • Finding your self and discovering who you are.
  • Discovering the love, care and compassion that you have for yourself and your whole, well being.
  • Owning your worth by honoring and valuing yourself.
  • Staying true to who you are by believing and trusting in yourself.
  • Tuning and tapping into your inner self, especially your emotions, feelings and thoughts.

We can be our worst critic if not enemy at times. How do you protect yourself from doing that to yourself? Really think about how you can down low your inner critic to empower your inner voice! You can receive clarity and validity through your inner voice, especially to express yourself in what you need and why.

  • Knowing it is okay to have doubts and fears, especially in going after what you need, want, crave, desire, etc.
  • Practicing to progress, develop and experience growth.
  • Finding you and who you are through the practicing and experiencing.
  • Coming from a place of love in following your heart in what you are passionate about and what you love to do.

Then there are other times where we have people being hurtful to us. How do you tune into you and tap into your needs in those situations? How you value yourself helps you and others treat you how you want to be treated. It truly comes from within you!

Ask yourself . . .

  • What is true and what is not? Reality versus perception.
  • What do I have control over and what can I not control?
  • What am I going to respond/react to and what am I not going to respond/react to?
  • What are my choices?

There is a fine line between addressing and being aware of what is hurting you instead of finding fault and criticizing yourself. Really get to the heart of the “whats” by asking those “whys” in what you truly need. 

Probably the hardest part is understanding your emotions, feelings and thoughts. There usually is a reason behind our emotions and you have to take the time to ask why. It matters to address it head on in order to move on. Especially in being able to release and let go. Especially to be open to experiences. Especially to do what works best and serves you in your personal growth and journey of self. Your whole being and your energy will thank you for that!

Your happiness and healthiness matters! To become a better version of yourself. To find your inner voice in being able to communicate and connect with yourself on a deeper level. To listening to your whole being from the inside out!

What Are You Doing For You To Give Back To Your Whole, Well Being. Love to Hear, Please Share.


Manifesting NEW! Growth

Hello! & Welcome . . .

What NEW! growth are you welcoming into your life?

How do you go about making it happen?

  • Dreaming and desiring.
  • Imagining and creating.
  • Experiencing the NEW!

Do you make time for you? You need to!

What do you love to do with the time you make for yourself?

  • Doing more of what you love.
  • Turning your focus inward.
  • Working on development and growth.
  • Playing, laughing and having fun.
  • Anything, NOTHING and every thing in between.

Remember to relax, kick back and daydream! It helps you pause to reflect as well as release and let go. It helps you imagine and tune into your creative being. It helps you set intentions to achieve your goals!

Remember to ask yourself your “whys” to answer your needs and desires! Listen to your inner voice and let it guide you. Tune into your creative being to set yourself to flow freely. Really tap into what you love to drive your motivations, passions and ambitions! 

No matter how much time you spend (i.e. 5 minutes, a few hours, etc.) just remember to be consistent and committed to carving out that time for yourself! You will start to see the progress as well as the results. You will start to feel relaxed, re-energized, refreshed, and recharged. You will have started a new practice for yourself to learn and develop as well as experience growth and gain experiences!

Natural Movement

What Are You Practicing?

I have been thinking about movement lately, especially forward movement. For instance, why do some movements seem so natural while others seem like you are continuously pushing a boulder up a very steep hill. You either keep pushing or have a boulder coming at you like Indiana Jones in that one movie. Your body and your body language speak volumes!

How and when do you stop pushing and just try and go with the flow? Especially when you are not the go with the flow type. Scheduled versus spontaneity. Learning to navigate or asking someone else for directions. Mind and body working together as one! 


Moving . . .

You have choices, especially to choose what works best for you! Weighing the pros and the cons. To practice, learn and develop. To progress to experience growth and gain life experiences. To find your “whys” in what you need!

To learn more about who you are and how you work! To find your potential as well as your talents and gifts. To discover what matters most. To create and live!

“You have a way to unstick what’s stuck, unblock what’s blocked,
fix what needs fixing, and create what needs creating.
You just need to practice this way a bit, every day, to make it yours.
We’re at a crossroads today, each of us, and all together. It has something to do with what we practice.”~Michael Taylor


Bridging . . .

It matters in how you live your life! That true essence of self and being true to who you are. That love and support. That caring and receiving and giving. It matters in how you care for yourself and others, especially your greatest someones! 

  • To find that inspiration and motivation that drives you.
  • To discover those loves and passions that give you ambition.
  • To be an active and productive being.
  • To achieve and be successful.
  • To be happy and healthy whole, well beings.
  • To living the simpler life.

I have learned that a good majority of things can be doable, changeable, fixable . . . Also, survivable! Creating and recreating. Changing and adapting. Transitioning and transforming. You are in charge to be who you are and to create (i.e. a life, happiness, health, etc.) and live for yourself!

Live Is Ever Changing & We Start NEW! Each and Every Day! Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share.


Manifesting Attraction

What Are You Desiring

Do you believe in manifesting attraction you get what you wish for?

Think about . . .

#1 – Creating reality.

Can you create your reality?

You have the power to control and drive. Of course to a degree since some things are out of our control. Through that power you make decisions and choices for yourself. Through that control you have the ability to respond or react as well as take action or not.

As surely as mountains are to be climbed and oceans sailed, your dreams are meant to come true.
This is why you’re here, to live the life of your dreams.
Not to be tested, challenged, and tried, but to conquer, champion, and rule.
Keep going, forge ahead, press on, 
and the day must dawn when your thirsts shall be quenched, and you, exalted.
Never settle for less, don’t ever think it’s too late, and never, ever, ever compromise a dream. ~Mike Dooley

#2 – Cultivating attraction.

How do you cultivate attraction for yourself? 

Ask yourself those “whys”. To understand and define what you need.

  • Why do you need what you desire?
  • Why is it a need vs. a want?

Ask yourself those “whats”. To create, attract and/or manifest to make it happen (aka become reality).

  • What intentions are you setting?
  • What steps/goals will you take to reach your desired outcome?
  • What action(s) do you take to bring it to fruition?

Life can only give you what you are prepared to receive.

How To Attract . . .

Where does that attraction come from to get what you need and want as well as crave and desire?

  • Building self confidence and independence.
  • Taking risks.
  • Learning to develop and experience growth.
  • Gaining experiences.

Confidence is not about being fearless and reckless. It is your ability to be aware of your fears. Do you know your strengths as well as your weaknesses? Do you own your power and strength and use that to your best advantage! 

It is about believing in yourself and being true to who you are. Do you like “you”? Do you know what you do well at? That is a powerful attractor asset to have! 

Do you make time for you? To take care of you and your needs! Do you spend time working on you, especially in knowing your abilities and skills? This helps you be confident, independent and self sufficient!

Golden Glitter

Wandering . . .

Ms. Healthy Diva Life recently wrote a blog post called Feeling Good & A Little Lost. It does feel good to feel good. It is okay to feel lost. Just ease into the wandering, right!

Talking about feeling lost made me think of J.R.R. Tolkien. “All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter” is a poem written by J.R.R. Tolkien for his fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings.

“All that gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien


Glittery . . . Shiny . . .

We all experience that feeling of being lost and at times we may find we lost ourselves too in the process! How do you continue moving forward? How do you get back on track in living your life? This is when you need to take a time out and make time for yourself to do a self check!

Ask Yourself . . .

  • Do you know your “whys” when it comes to what you want?
  • Do you know what you want to do?
  • Do you know what makes you happy?
  • Do you know how to release and let go of what is no longer working best for you?

You wonder and wander! It is perfectly normal and okay to not know where you are going at times in living your life. Tune into your emotions and tap into your feelings to connect to your inner being. Really ask yourself the questions above to determine what truly excites you to move your whole being again! 


Wandering . . .

Focusing inward helps you in being aware of your mind and various energies as well as your heart and physical being too! It is perfectly normal and okay to be all over the place. Take the time to stretch your comfort zone in trying new things. Make mistakes to learn and develop. Gain new experiences to experience growth. Really wander!

Look at what you do have in your life! Appreciate and celebrate it. Be grateful and thankful. Each and everything received and given is a true blessing!

My grandmother talked about patience (which I have very little of – ha!). She talked about . . . In having patience you will find your purpose. Challenges, stresses and struggles will test your patience fully and completely. Throughout that test and the test of your patience will come your plan; your game plan, your next plan, etc. You will get through it and become a stronger person for it!


Making Time to Be!

We all grow by experiencing change! Practice to learn, develop and experience. We all change to transform! Practice to progress. We all go through life transitions! 

Practice . . . maintaining your center of balance, your health and happiness, and feeling good about yourself and where you are at. Be the Captain in steering your life, especially your healthiness and happiness!

Practice . . . self love and self care and compassion, owning and embracing your messy self, and counting your many blessings. The love you have for yourself matters in being there for yourself and your greatest someones! 

Practice . . . sharing, receiving and giving, coming from a place of love, and following your heart and your loves and passions and desires. Really lead with your heart and the rest of you will fall into place and be along for the ride!

Practice . . . that life is not a sprint to the finish line and to take the time to wander, get lost, find your way, and just journey along!

Adventuring

Outside

How about another way to be “connected”! A good majority of us spend time commuting to work, desk jockeying and “connecting” with technology. A good majority of us lead a healthy and happy lifestyle too!

Are you aware or not if you get enough of the natural though? Stopping work to gaze out the window is a great break idea. You relax and refocus – just let the mind and body wander and release. It can be refreshing and re-energizing too. Then you are ready to get back to it and tackle it!

Switch Up that screen time to scenic time! 

Where does your mind go when you think about the most beautiful place you have seen? 

I know what some of your are thinking . . .

Great! I love and live for the outside world.

No Thank You! I am good inside.

That is okay though! You can either go to nature or bring it indoors!

Getting outside or bringing the outdoors in does a whole being GOOD!

GO on an Adventure! Take a little risk and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Learn new skills and abilities and gain experiences. Storytelling, capturing (i.e. through the creative – photography, painting, etc.) and making memories.

A FREE form of movement, activity and exercise! Switch up the routine. Develop inner and outer strength. Spend quality time with yourself and your whole being.

  • Improve function in general (i.e. mental, emotional, physical, etc.).
  • Energizing and invigorating.
  • Stress reducing.

Play, laugh and have FUN! Take a walk, search for the natural (i.e. shells, fauna and flora, wildlife, etc.), garden, meditate, etc. Join in on a group activity. The possibilities are limitless! 

  • Pure enjoyment.
  • Escaping to the natural – refresh, renew and get back on track.
  • R&R

BE in the present moment and mindful! Pause and reflect. Take in the air around you (i.e. pine forests, salt water, etc.). Stop to take in the scenic views. Savor and soak in the experience!

  • Mindfulness and calmness.
  • Focus vs. distraction(s).
  • Creativity

ADD in the natural and greenery to your home and working environment! Plants and florals. Find a room with a view or just a view in general (i.e. window, photos, etc.). Find your green space to escape to for the natural (i.e. grass, parks, gardens, etc.).

  • Receiving a dose of the natural (i.e. air, green, sunlight, etc.).
  • Engaging your senses.
  • Add in the food element (i.e. farmers market, you pick fruits and veggies, gardening, etc.).

Intuitive Self Care

For Your Whole Well Being

Do you take 5 minutes or even 30 minutes to tune into your intuitive self?

  • To unleash your imagination.
  • To get curious.
  • To do absolutely nothing.

To tune into yourself and tune everything else out!

Being able to listen and act on your intuition is possible and with a little practice soon enough becomes second nature! You learn to believe and trust in yourself, especially in making decisions and choices. You learn to think more clearly and that gives you clarity in tuning into your intuition and coming from a place of love by following your heart. You learn to be one with yourself and tap into what you need, want, desire, and crave!

Does your intuitive self crave creativity and/or exploration? To play, laugh and have fun. Do you integrate creativity throughout your day? To find that inspiration and motivation. Creativity is good for the whole well being; mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 

Getting creative is like breathing and moving. It promotes self love and self confidence. It cultivates healthiness and happiness. It creates innovation and thinking outside the box. It gives you a mood booster as well as an energy booster!

Some Creative Ideas to Consider Doing

  • Drawing or coloring.
  • Journaling or writing.
  • Singing or playing a musical instrument.
  • Listening to music or dancing.
  • Tuning into the “green spaces” either indoors or outdoors.
  • Gathering inspiration and motivation through various mediums.
  • Tapping into your senses.
  • Wondering and wandering.

DO What MOVES You!!! Spark your curiosity. Make the world come alive around you. Discover the magic that lets your creative being come out to play!

Just imagine how much more aware and awake you can be by tuning into your intuition! How much more you will open yourself up to experience. How much more you will want to slow down the pace to soak it in and savor it. How much more you will be in the present moment and just want to be!

Manifesting Love

Love Sweet Love

We all search and seek out love! How do you manifest love for yourself? How about others, especially your greatest someones?

  • To love and be loved.
  • To give and to receive.
  • To belong and be a part of something.

DSC_0453

How do you open your heart as well as your mind to receive the love you are searching and seeking?

  • Knowing what you want and why.
  • Learning to forgive, especially yourself.
  • Learning how to be open to receive what you want.
  • Learning to release and let go of what is no longer serving you.
  • Stretching . . . experiencing . . . growing . . .

Really think about shifting gears! Coming from a place of love versus fear. Getting the mind and the heart together as one team. Believing, valuing and trusting yourself by being who you are!

Knowing

Do you know what you want and why! What do you want to receive? What do you want to give? A key piece in manifesting is getting clear on exactly what it is you want and the reasoning behind it (aka the why?)!

  • What is your practice? Coming from a place of love in following your heart.
  • What is your focus? Being clear on why you want what you want.
  • What is your passion? Doing more of what you love.
  • What is your purpose? Tuning and tapping into your hopes and wishes as well as your dreams and desires.

DSC_0434

Learning

Learning to forgive and letting go of the guilt in being and doing for YOU! You will start to open up more. You will start to attract more of what you want. In being more open and in attracting more of what you want you will open yourself to the possibilities and opportunities!

What are you opening to? Involve your mind and heart and whole being. Engage your senses and feelings. Imagine and envision. In knowing what it is you want you bring that into your life by manifesting, attracting, going for it, and doing it! 

Practicing and learning to release and let go! Especially of what is no longer working for you or serving your best interest. This is not so easy when you want to be the one in control! Think about how you can be more open to receiving what you want.

  • Being curious and exploring.
  • Adventuring and trying new things.
  • Being flexible in order to shift, transition and just adapt.
  • Learning, developing and experiencing growth.
  • Stretching yourself and your whole being from the inside out.
  • Gaining those life experiences and lifetime memories.
  • Expressing what you want and why!

Experiences Are Part of Your Story

Creating Your Story One Experience, One Moment, One Chapter At A Time

You find your path and define it as you go along. Your path sets you on the course to journey along. Those experiences and those moments become a part of the story you create.


Journeying Along . . .

  • There are times you have to ask for help along the way. This helps you communicate, interact, connect, and engage.
  • There are times you have to ask for directions. This helps you in stopping to process. This helps you in pausing to breathe. This helps you redirect.
  • There are times you have to unpack and regroup; mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. This helps you create space and set boundaries. This also helps you learn how to release and let go of what is no longer working or serving your best interests.


Opening Up . . . Being . . . Letting Go . . .

It can be uncomfortable to open yourself up, however; vulnerability helps you grow and evolve! Being vulnerable is okay and not a weakness or flaw. It can become an essential part of who you are and how you express yourself by living from within your being! Humility goes a long way too.

We all experience the good, the bad, at times the ugly, and everything in between! You can be in control of how you make decisions and choices. You can be in control of how you respond and react. It can serve you or sabotage you and you choose which one it will be! 

Make the time to slow down and be more! All that rushing about. All those excuses about not having the time. Stop the “busyness” – your 20’s turn into your 40’s and your 40’s into your 80’s before your own eyes in hurrying and rushing about to the next and the next and the next!


Sink Your Toes Into the Sand!

Remember . . .

  • MAKE Time For Yourself. Make the space you need for you and your whole well being.
  • DO What You Love. Find the fun and play as well as the joy and happiness.
  • TAKE Note of the Beauty Around You. Practice to progress . . . Be grateful, appreciative and thankful . . . Celebrate more . . .
  • EMBRACE Your Journey. Explore, adventure, travel . . . Communicate and interact as well as engage and connect . . . Learn, experience growth and gain life experiences . . .
