This Is For Those That Feel Like Their Dreams Are Impossible

This Is For Those That Feel Like Their Dreams Are Impossible

Throughout my journey I have felt more than enough times that what I am set out to do is nearly impossible, and while spirituality and my soul-journey have more than supported me and held me within that, and carried me all the way to where I am now, I have learned something very valuable from my dreams and goals themselves.

And, that lesson is exactly what I am here to share with you today!

So here’s the deal my beautiful soul-seeking, co-creating badasses…

Your dreams are not impossible.
They are almost impossible.

 

#TruthBomb #MicDrop. You see, words have power. More so than we give them credit for. The word almost, in this instant, quite literally creates space for the impossible to be possible. You also grant yourself the permission to be inspired and empowered more than enough to go for it.

 

 

My friends, your dreams, goals, ideas, desires, etc. are not impossible. They are almost impossible. Which makes your dreams, goals, ideas, desires, etc. equally as almost possible. Here, you become empowered. Here, you CAN make it happen. Here, your dreams, goals, ideas, desires, etc. are so much closer to you than you think.

When you operate from this new-found space, you can create anything you dream, think, and desire.

The Law of Attraction says, “Your thoughts create your reality.” So, what are you focused on? How impossible your dreams, goals, ideas, desires, etc. are? Or, how you’ve got just enough space to pull it off, make it happen, manifest magic, and inspire + empower the world with your “almost” impossible mindset to bring positive change.

So to all of you beautiful light-working, inspired as hell souls that are craving something magic but are afraid, feel like (or are told) that your dreams are impossible, or even just don’t know where to start here’s what I’ve got to say :

 

You can do this. 
I know so because I’m doing it too, in my own way, and I’m walking right beside you.

If you believe in yourself and your soul is calling you to show up for something, show up for it. 
It might be scary and push you outside of your comfort zone, but you’ve got magic to share and you can’t hide it or deny the rest of the world that is looking for what you have to offer.

Your dreams are NOT impossible.
They are almost impossible.

Lean into the almost. With everything you’ve got.
It will carry you, I promise.

The Journey Is Messy, Embrace It!

The Journey Is Messy, Embrace It!

Personal + spiritual growth, it sounds so pretty doesn’t it? It is one of the messiest things a person can journey through, and I invite you to know that the mess is the exact reason it is such a beautiful and empowering process. Many of us begin this journey because the sparkle of love + light and enlightenment look so good, and then we begin and we learn that so much of this journey is learning how to rise from the bullshit. That experience is a messy one.

I’d like to invite you to embrace the mess, and invite it to empower you. Because let’s be real, the mess is the only reason we can grow in the first place. How does a tree’s soil gain enough moisture for a tree to properly grow and thrive? Icy winter’s, stormy summers, and a whole lot of changing climates. The cold of the winter empowers the tree because the tree needs the winter snow to fall and melt. The crashing + pouring storms of the summer empower the trees in the same way, pushing the tree to take it’s roots to a place that will hold it stably, raining water into the soil for the tree to be nourished.

We’ve got icy winters and summer storms of our own and those seasons are messy, but it is within that mess that we learn. It is from the darkness that we can know light, and it is from our own messes that we can find our messages and our lessons.  

There will be times where you don’t know what to say or do, and you won’t know what the right next step will be. There will be times when you feel like you’re going a little bit crazy, but damn you’re so passionate about being able to grow and be as empowered as you can be.

There will be moments when your truth will trigger someone else’s fear, and you’ll likely be named, blamed, and seen as the problem itself.

The magic is though, that we get to choose. We get to choose to play small and keep ourselves safe. We get to choose to live in our passion and take on the mess because let’s be real it’s kind of fun after the fact, and we get to choose to become what we want (or not).

 

 

Is it messy? Sure. Is it sometimes like trying to catch your breath when you’re caught in the current of a wave? Definitely.

But do you remember being a kid and finger painting off of the paper and onto the table, or maybe even yourself? Sure, you got in trouble, after a minute it was uncomfortable, but damn it was worth it to experience that freedom and creation.

Life is fucking messy! But you get to choose who you are, and how you live. So live within the mess with as much grace and joy as you can. Embrace the mess, dance with it, invite it to create (with) You.

How to Embrace Every Life Experience with Love

How to Embrace Every Life Experience with Love

Life can be kind of crazy sometimes. The ebb and flow, peaks and valleys, dancing with Life, climbing mountains, falling, and sometimes just sitting still. It can be hard to know what all of it means, if it means anything at all. And it can be difficult to navigate how to make things better when they are feeling less than great. Still, hindsight being 20/20 there is so much more beauty and magic in life than there is pain or darkness. Is there a way to love both the light and dark parts of life, though? And if so, what does that even look like?

When you can understand why the specific things that are occurring in your life are occurring, you can find peace within the process. It is all in your understanding. Perhaps the only understanding that you will need is that everything happens for a reason, and that there is a lesson to be learned from this experience, negative or positive. Other times the understanding you will need will take a little bit more discovery and exploration for your own answers. This shift in perspective will help to soften the darker of experiences in life.

Once you can find a headspace and heartspace of peace, you can then move into the fun stuff. The part where loving every experience comes into play. It isn’t hard to love the beautiful bits of life, and it isn’t hard to sometimes be really grateful for them either. To intentionally hold a space of deep and consistent gratitude takes a little bit more effort. Once you achieve mastery of this practice though, your highs will feel so much higher, and that energy will manifest more positivity.

To do a little bit more intentional work, you can hold a deeply rooted knowing that the negative experiences of life hold just as much magic and light, because through the transformation those tough experiences will reward you with wisdom and trust in the process. If you let them, that is. You see, if you can hold a knowing and gratitude for the universal truth that is everything happens for a reason, and if you can ground into that you can begin to fall in love with even the roughest of chapters of your life.

It is not the easiest practice, but it is one that will gift you with feelings of safety, support, and purpose. You will no longer feel lost and broken in your periods of darkness, but rather you will feel inspired and empowered even when things are hard to sort out. You will find a feeling of peace and contentment with your growth process, and from that place you can bring your own light to whatever the negative situation may be.

While it isn’t fun to say, our darkest moments in life tend to be our most formative, no matter our age. So if you can find gratitude and knowing in the fact that you are exactly where you need to be so that you may reach your highest potential. You can find an underlying love for even the most uncomfortable and unwanted experiences. You can find a power in that space to bring forth light and wisdom that will make the journey a little bit more bearable. There you can embrace any experience that comes your way with a loving understanding, confidence and maybe even joy.

The One Mindset That Will Make You Grow The Most

The One Mindset That Will Make You Grow The Most

In the process of personal development and spiritual growth it can sometimes be easy to still fall into old patterns of allowing limiting beliefs to both be present and be accepted as if they are true. It can sometimes be hard to recognize these instances and patterns of fear, and it can be even more difficult to break those patterns.

It is one thing to take note of everything that holds you back, and it is another to move through those very blocks. This kind of practice can be extremely trying (if that is what you make of it) and it can also be one of the most valuable pieces of your life. It is hard work, sometimes it is the least fun thing you can do, and often it takes quite a bit of emotional energy.

I find that the most powerful and universal wisdom is also the simplest, and this tool for empowering growth is a great example of just that. Many of us are aware of the presence of resistance within ourselves, for the most part. Resistance is most often manifested as a feeling of hesitation, fear, or doubt. This presence could sometimes be interpreted as intuitive ‘protection’, but what many don’t know is that resistance is often a doorway to some of the greatest experiences of growth you can live.

If you choose to allow your resistance to be a doorway, when you acknowledge the presence of resistance choosing to move through it can be the most liberating and empowering experience. In my personal experience, it always is. This is because when you choose to let go of inhibitions and go after the thing that makes you most uncomfortable you are pushed to expand. Your mind opens, your heart stretches, and your spirit will begin to sing.

A prime example of this for me has been reaching out to some of my inspirations. As a young blogger, author and mentor I want to be where my inspirations are. I want to be in their world of light and world shifting love, awareness, and compassion, and to do that I have to connect with those beautiful people in some way. “But oh my, judgement, what if they don’t like what I do, am I worthy of knowing them?” Hello, resistance.

There, I can accept my doubt and fear, or I can see it as an opportunity to expand even more. I don’t know about you, but I like opportunity a whole lot more than being okay with living small minded. So I emailed them, the top 3 women that shifted my life and inspired my work to begin, and now inspire it to continue and deepen and grow richer in flavor. While those 3 emails didn’t get the response my ego would’ve liked, I have since worked with those 3 incredible ladies in some way and I am on my way to that original goal realizing. Can you hear my spirit singing and feel my heart’s fullness, too?

If you can lean into your resistance, meaning feel the fear and do it anyway, you will set yourself free. Taking this kind of action will give you permission to grow in the way you’ve always wished to. If you are courageous enough to face yourself, you will begin to break you own glass ceilings.

How To Deepen Your Spiritual Practice

How To Deepen Your Spiritual Practice

Cultivating a spiritual practice is such a beautiful and personal experience, and still it can sometimes become stagnant or stale. What are we to do when we want to take our spiritual practice to the next level? How is one supposed to get deeper into their own experience and lessons from Life?

Even in the personal development and self improvement soaked society we have now, we can sometimes come up against our own walls. The first step is to recognize the difference between a wall, a challenge to overcome, and comfortability, a space of contentment. Now, there is nothing wrong with comfortability, but to live in that space for too long can create this stagnant energy. So, how can you break through the stagnancy and move into a flow of continuous growth?

Surrender to the process-

I experienced this lesson in my own meditation practice previously. After having gone to a 10 Day Vipassana retreat I thought I had gone the deepest I could have and I know how to ever get back to that deep and oceanic internal space even though I really wanted to.

I spent a few days of my meditation practice trying and trying to make it happen, to take myself within as deeply as I could. The only result I got was a surface level presence, and destructive ego thoughts. This is where I found my shift. I could not try and make this happen, I could never force it. I had to let go just as deeply as I wanted to experience my internal energy.

Surrender to the process and allow yourself to align with whatever experience you want to occur. Never try to force it or create it. This leads us to our next principle…

Be Intentional –

It is all about intention in this space. Whether you are giving or receiving energy, whether you are teaching or learning, whether you are a curious beginner or a seasoned meditation veteran, yogi, or intuitive. Be intentional in everything that you do, and especially in your spirituality and exploring such a space. I have found that when I have a clear intention, and when I trust in that intention blossoming in it’s own perfect timing, I let go of that feeling to control or make a specific experience happen.

Be intentional with why you are beginning or continuing your practice. Be intentional in why you are trying out a new tool, practice, or technique. Be intentional in what experiences you’d like to try and live or try on. Then surrender and allow the process (and the outcome of such experiences) to be what it will be.

This practice of intention in itself will bleed into every other realm of your life and bring with it quite a bit of beauty (i.e. more kindness, more giving, more love, more understanding of others, etc.) along with it.

 

Be experimental –

To me, spirituality is about exploration and openness, which translates easily into experimentation. Try on whatever techniques and tools you feel called to! Some will feel amazing and work wonders for your body, mind, and soul, and others will not vibe with you quite right. Be playful with whatever you are interested in and inspired by, and when something doesn’t work quite right, move on. It may not be that it didn’t work or wasn’t right for you, it may be that it was not the right timing for you and you may try something more than once.

This experimental and open mindset and intention will open up opportunity for you to experience deeper realms of yourself and your being than you knew existed. It can also teach you what you are ready for, and what you’re not. Which can be incredibly insightful as to where you may need to work a little harder to grow in that area of yourself.

I hope these points of perspective and guidance carry you along your journey and into some beautiful depths with ease.

 

 

All of my love to you.
