I've been on a b-i-g internal journey of late. From the outside, things look the same but on the inside - my gawd, things are shifting and morphing and transforming. I've got to say - I feel more peaceful and connected to my Self than I have in a really long time. And of course, when I feel peaceful and connected to my Self, I show up to life and my business authentically and with heart.
Let me tell you about my journey to get back to this place ...
About 2 months ago, I was feeling a bit scattered. I do 'the work' a lot and knew I was beginning to trot off path. I wasn't sleeping very well, was on my phone a lot, finding it hard to focus and just generally, not feeling like my Best Self (it's all about the feeling for me!)
So I did something about it - I made a commitment to get on my mat every morning for 2 weeks and do two rounds of sun salutations and a 10 minute meditation. Quick and simple huh? Let me tell you beauty - this tiny practice kick started something magical within me!
From there I did a 5 day kitchari cleanse, social media and WhatsApp detox (OMG, the constant notifications were destroying my Soul!) and started increasing my morning meditations to 30 minutes. I also began working less hours, getting out of the house and having more FUN and taking short localish vay-cays.
These series of small loving acts had a powerful snowball effect and now, just a few short weeks later I feel better than ever.
My journey has reminded me of this powerful truth -
Everything we need is within us and all we need to do is journey within in order to feel how, and manifest what, we truly want.
Is it always easy? Heck no, but all it takes is one small act done everyday in order for it to have an impact.
I know you're here because you want to live a life that flows and feels f!cking awesome.
I know you're here because you want to run your business in a way that feels authentic and soulful.
It all begins within honey.
If you're feeling off course, stuck, stagnant, misaligned (etc. etc. at the moment), it's likely because you're more in your head than in your head.
When you're in your heart, creativity flows.
When you're in your heart, you know what the right next step is (and if you don't you're totally okay with sitting in the unknown until the path illuminates itself!)
When you're in your heart, you're more present and because of that, more peaceful.
Here's some of the resources I've been using to tap back into my Truth lately:

I ask you this sweet woman - what are you going to do to connect back with your Self so you can show up authentically in your life and business?
All it takes is 30 minutes a day (even less if you don't have it!) - it's all about choice honey.
