A Heart to Heart

Get Out Of My Head

Do you get stuck in your head? Thinking, processing, thinking some more . . .

I do! I tend to get stuck in my head every once in a while. When I do I find whatever I am doing less enjoyable!

Sync & Synergy

How do you sync your mind and heart to create synergy? 

Thinking with your mind while leading with your heart. To lead more with your heart instead of being in your head.


Heart to Heart

I find that it comes more natural when I believe and trust in myself! Tuning into the intuition and tapping into those gut instincts. Especially when something is new that you have never done before.

Think about how you listen to your body! Valuing and believing in yourself. Trusting your mind, heart and gut, especially your instincts. Being true to who you are!

Balancing Act

How do you find that balance? 

For me it comes down to comfort along with confidence! I have to find comfort in what I do. To feel more grounded to center and create calm in my whole being. I have to find that balance and alignment to boost my confidence. To be more aware and mindful.

Really think about relaxing and resting more! Connect with your inner being as well as your breathe throughout the day. What do you need to let be or even let go of to relax more or at least connect more to your breathing? It is okay to do nothing too – take a much deserved break, a cat nap, a good solid 8 hours of rest, etc. Your being needs R&R on a daily basis with all that doing and going!


Balancing . . . Bridging . . .

Checking In

Make the time to do a self check! What is working and what is not. What do you have control over to change. It creates the space you need to stay right where you are at or how to move forward!

What is your whole being really telling you?


Checking In . . .

Presence

How do you create presence?

  • How you conduct and carry yourself.
  • How you physically show up in your world.
  • How you share you with yourself and others.

Think about your head/body positioning too! Are you looking straight ahead or down? When you are head up and looking forward you are more aware as well as confident! Remember to engage your heart too.


Hello There!

Connection

What is happening to you as well as what is going on around you?

  • That connection to your energies.
  • That connection to your power for strength.
  • That connection to control for empowerment.

Think about how you connect through interaction and engagement! Changing and transitioning as well as growing and transforming. Taking the time to tune into your emotions, feelings and thoughts. All and whole being – mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically!

Manifesting Growth Experiences

For Your Whole Being

How Do You Manifest Growth?

  • In learning, experiencing growth and gaining life experiences.
  • In being curious to explore and adventure.
  • In laughing, playing and having fun.
  • In being open to the possibilities and opportunities.
  • In giving to yourself, especially your needs.


Fruition . . .

Do you factor in the thrill or the fear in your experiences? Depends on the experience, right! Being fearful is okay, especially when you try new things or even take risks. It is part of the experience process!

However, letting fear control, deter and make decisions for you is not the best end result when it comes to the experience. The self doubt and the high expectations. The telling yourself it will never work and tapping into those old, bad habits again. It is okay to feel fearful when experiencing, but do not let fear just stop you in your tracks and stop you from doing!

Take a step back to determine as well as acknowledge what is standing in your way (i.e. fear, guilt, etc.)! Announce to yourself what it is and then release and let it go. It is okay to tune into your emotions, feelings and thoughts. Really look at what you are gaining and/or losing if you stand in your way! 


Boldness . . .

Think about the pure exhilaration and joy instead of letting fear take a front seat when you are experiencing! You may try that experience once and move on. You may try that experience again and again. Think about that you tried it and did it and maybe even liked it!

Give yourself the gift in being open to the possibilities and opportunities that come into your life! It can be refreshing and re-energizing to your whole being. It can be freeing too. Have fun with it! 

You are more than capable!

  • Own your value and worth.
  • Belief and trust in yourself.
  • Use that attitude to power you in what you want.
  • Use your energy to be inspired, motivated and drive.
  • Discover your loves, passions and desires.
  • Be grateful, appreciative and thankful.

Be the best person you can be by growing, experiencing and changing for the better! Take that first step and do not worry if it is a baby step, a giant leap or somewhere in between. Take action by doing it for you. That going for it, doing it is the greatest accomplishment you can gift to yourself! It provides you the motivation to go for it and do it again and again and again!

Here’s to Journeying Along! Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share.


Manifest Discovery

Of Your Self

Think about how you bare your soul and essence of your whole being to yourself!

From exploring the world through your child eyes to figuring out where you fit in as a teenager to discovering who you are in your 20’s.

Are you in a discovery phase? Who Am I? How Do I Tick? Have you started on your journey of self?

Where do you see yourself in this big world!

Saying Yes! To Love

Remember to take 5 minutes to 30 minutes to an hour and just be, especially with yourself! Self love and self care and compassion. Communicating and interacting. Engaging and connecting. Healthiness and happiness. 

  • Do a self check to determine your needs. Are your needs connecting to your “whys”?
  • Do make time for yourself and your whole, well being. What do you want to do?
  • Do more of what you love to do.
  • Do get curious to explore and adventure. Add in some play time.
  • Do have fun learning by trying new things.

Find what makes you joyful, gives you pleasure and makes you the happiest! 

Saying Yes! To Nurturing & Nourishing

How do you nurture and nourish your whole being?

  • Relaxing and resting.
  • Being present and mindful.
  • Finding your form of meditation.

Being present and sharing that presence of self can be powerful and intense to yourself as well as others!  You are connecting at a deeper level. It is refreshing and re-energizing. It is freeing and liberating!

Saying Yes! To Who You Are

How do you do for your whole, well being?

  • Building a solid foundation to live from.
  • Developing your coping toolkit. To heal, release and let go of what is not in your best interest.
  • Creating the space and boundaries that you need. Mentally and emotionally as well as physically and spiritually.
  • Being yourself and true to who you are. To really be your own person and stand on your own.
  • Tuning into your beliefs and what you value. To experience growth to transform.
  • Rooting yourself through your beliefs and to trust in yourself.

What truly matters the most to you! You can be authentic and show vulnerability and have humility. That is the essence of being human! 

Say Yes! To Community

Have you found your small tribe? Where you can be you?

  • To inspire and motivate.
  • To communicate and connect.
  • To guide and support.

Inspire and move yourself and others by what you are doing! You and your stories. Your creations and experiences. Your passions and loves. Your talents and gifts. 

  • To share learning lessons, experiences and life in general.
  • To cope and heal.

To shift and change by learning and developing! Gaining those life experiences and make lasting memories. To transition and transform through experiencing growth!

Say Yes! To Intuition

How do you tune and tap into your intuitive self?

  • Finding your voice to express yourself.
  • Accepting who you are.
  • Embracing your talents and gifts.
  • Listening to yourself as well as giving that gift of listening to others.
  • Trusting your gut.
  • Coming from a place of love by following your heart.
  • Letting your inner child out to explore and play.

Do you love you for you! What drives you. What do you want to give your energy to. What part of you needs you to pay attention and listen to it, especially what it needs and its “whys”!

The Greatest Gift You Can Give Yourself is the Discovery of Who You Are. Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share.


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.


Practicing Healthiness & Happiness

At A Personal Level

Do you practice what really works or serves your whole, well being for the better?

Be selective when it comes to opening yourself up and inviting in the possibilities and opportunities! What are the pros and cons. What speaks to your heart and soul. What sparks interest and inspiration as well as motivation and creativity for you! 

Really make it your own! When you do that you are more likely to stick to it. Be choosy when it comes to additions because when you start piling more on it can become less fun and more like a chore. It takes time to build and to have patience in discovering what works best for you and serves your needs!

 

What are you practicing?

In practicing my health and happiness I approach it like I am putting together a puzzle. You just have to figure out where to place the pieces. For example, there may be a piece to start every day new and fresh. Then there is another piece to end the day by taking 30 minutes for yourself. You continue to build one piece at a time to create a personal practice for yourself! 

Finding that healthy and happy place! That place that you take time out to make time for yourself. That place of comfort and healing. That place you can release and let go. That place where you can just be!

Are you creating a personal practice out of that practicing?

A major part of arriving at a final destination is the journey to get there! A major part of creating a personal practice to live from is enjoying the process. A great place to start your personal practice is determining your loves and your passions. What truly brings you joy, pleasure and happiness!

You will be more likely to continue your personal practice too! Over time you will become adept in making additions and eliminations. Really take the time for yourself to nurture and nourish that practice. Remember to do what works best for you and your whole, well being.

Manifesting Power

Through Your Role

I strongly believe that we all are leaders in our own lives! Do you agree? Do you take a leadership role in your own life for you and your whole being? Simply put it is about taking the time to value who we are and what we have to offer! 

Your love and confidence as well as your intelligence and intuition! Tuning into your power and tapping into your spirit. Basically living your life on your own terms!

To nurture and nourish your whole being! Through building a great relationship and deeper connection with your whole being. By putting perfection and high expectations on the down low. By being the person you are! 


Navigating . . . Manifesting . . . Journeying . . .

Your Mindset

How do you perceive and receive your world and the world around you? 

Ask Yourself . . .

  • Are you serving your best interests?

You need to know the “whys” when it comes to what you need and want as well as crave and desire! Being mindful and fully aware. Tuning into your senses. You also need to know how to release and let go of what is no longer serving your best interests! 

  • Are you stunting your growth in any way?

You matter and are important! If you are willing and open, you are more than capable. You have to open yourself up to the possibilities and opportunities!

  • Are you sticking to your rules when it comes to acting?

Sometimes your mind rules your actions! You may have to throw out the rule book. You may need to let your heart in to play more! 

  • Are you proactive or reactive?

You need to make the time to connect with your whole being! Find that quiet space to center and connect. Reflect and release. Discover the movement and flow to your whole being again! 


Being . . . Creating . . . Living . . .

Your Dimension

You are more than one dimension! You have breadth by learning, developing and growing. You have depth through your experiences. All of what you experience enhances and expands you and your world!

A major part of adding dimension is through building a relationship with yourself!

  • Believing and trusting in yourself.
  • Knowing how you want to be treated to value yourself and your worth.
  • Nurturing and nourishing yourself and your whole being.
  • Answering those “whys” to ask for what you need.
  • Well being through self being; love, kindness, care, compassion, etc.

Your Journey

Remember you are the author in creating your story! You are the navigator in your journey!

It is about learning from the past and being in the present! What do you need? Are you being true to who you are? Be an active participant and show up for you in living your life!

Happiness

Exercise It???

Have you heard of Will Jelbert and his book called The Happiness Animal? Healthy body = healthy eating and healthy exercise. Healthy happiness = healthy exercise. “How we exercise our spirit determines the strength of our happiness.” 

In The Happiness Animal, you are introduced to the five muscles that can be exercised to make your “Happiness Animal” stronger. “What if you could exercise your happiness like you exercise your body?” Why not give it a go!

  1. Tolerance
  2. Kindness
  3. Honesty
  4. Awareness
  5. Courage

Talk about a revelation that just resonates with me! 

I did not know I was working a happiness muscle in being curious. I am a questioner. Searching for answers. Seeking out and striving to learn, grow and experience!

I think we all question and ask ourselves.

  • Who Am I?
  • What Is My Purpose?
  • What Do I Want To Do?

I think we also tune into our emotions, feelings and thoughts.

Do you tune into your emotions, feelings and thoughts?

  • It is important to accept, own and respect your emotions and feelings.
  • It matters to have a voice and express yourself, especially sharing your thoughts, talents, stories, etc.
  • It is okay to be humble and vulnerable.
  • It is good to have humility.

We all need our tribe along with that sense of belonging and being part of a community. That rawness and realness in people who truly are connecting to their emotions, stories and reality. That empowerment to be who you really are from the inside out. That force and energy within you that powers you and has you in control. That strength of acceptance and humanness!

Here’s to Exercising, Especially Our Happiness and Healthiness. 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!
