πŸ‘ΈπŸ½ BELIEVE IN YOURSELF πŸ‘ΈπŸ½

There's no one like you out there. No one has your energy or the gifts you have to offer.

.

You might feel like you don't have much to offer, much to say. Or you might believe you're not that unique, what you want to do is done before and you're not where you want to be anyway so what's the point.. 

.

When you're in that space and someone goes, 'Believe in yourself!' It might feel a bit flat and irritating, I do at least πŸ˜ƒ

.

What does it even mean, believing in yourself?

.

It means you know who you are and you know your gifts and the power they have. You know its true for you to be that, offer that, because that's what you love and you doing what you love is what the world needs.

.

There's this beautiful quote by Howard Thurman, "Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

.

I love this quote. When people ask for your help, you might feel like you're not capable to help them or you don't feel confident or experienced enough. That's not true, if someone's showing up and asking your help, its because they need your help, your energy. If they didn't resonate with you, they wouldn't have come up to you. 

.

Allow yourself to receive the transformation you can create in their lives.. Make serving them more important than what you think about yourself and see what happens β˜ΊοΈπŸ’›

.

When you step up, grow and stretch yourself your self esteem might feel like its getting lower, because your Ego gets scared. So it throws at you everything it can as a strategy to keep you small. Once you notice the strategy and the reason behind it, it doesn't have power or control over you. For example it might tell you to show this facade first before showing the real you, before opening up and being vulnerable. 

.

As you drop your mask, people around you will drop theirs too. The more you see people pretending, its because you're pretending too. Its just a mirror of the vibration you're in. You don't have to show off or overdo you either. Just be the real you.

.

Last Saturday I guided a movement session and a cacao ceremony for 20 people and 15 of them haven't meditated before in their lives. And there I was wearing my feathers, this goddessy dress walking around barefoot with my palo santo (similar to incense stick). I felt quite proud actually to be in that space and be myself. In the end of the day, they're just people who are not better or worse than you are.

.

And if you have any doubt about not knowing who you are just think of an acorn. An acorn grows into an oak tree, it doesn't try to be an oak tree, it doesn't have to figure out how to be an oak tree. It just becomes an oak tree. It surrenders and allows that growth and transformation to happen to be its fullest and embodied self. Stop trying and allow.

.

Here are 2 things you can do to start believing in yourself:

- Print out every beautiful thing people said about you.. A client's testimonial, a 'oh my god that session was incredible, thank you!' message. Your friend's or lover's encouraging message to you. Put them somewhere in your room where you can see them every day. 

(Know that you don't have to get attached to these praises, they're just reflecting your true nature to you, they're not giving you anything extra)

- Imagine you're at your 80th birthday. People are coming up to you and thanking you for being this beautiful person. What are they thanking you for? Write them down.

.

So be like an acorn πŸ˜ƒ and wear feathers, always πŸ˜‰βœ¨

.

Who would be if you didn't care what others think of you? And what would you do? Comment below β˜ΊοΈπŸ’ž

Loads of love to you! πŸ’–

FOLLOWING YOUR INTUITION

Had a magical experience tonight..

So was going to have a healing session, it got cancelled and I got from my intuition to go @cuchira's movement therapy class when I saw her post yesterday.

I wasn't feeling it to be honest, was feeling all tired and icky and in my head. I tuned in and got 'get up, go' so I went without thinking about it too much.

Oh my god.. This woman is magic.. Serious magic. She doesn't just teach a mixture of yoga, dance, movement therapy, its something I never experienced before.. You know you experience something that you can't describe because its something unique coming from that one person..

I remembered how simple it is to breathe, yet I forgot. We moved intuitively, however our body felt, honest and as it is.. Then we allowed our bodies to meet and move together, it got all messy πŸ˜‚ It brought up whole loads of stuff. I loved how what we do daily without being aware of, came up so quickly. Through being uncomfortable and asking why I got to a space where I was feeling all sad. I allowed the sadness to go all over my body completely. It was surrender. Then it went away. There was nothingness.

I was procrastinating over the last few weeks for starting the women's group I visioned, what its gonna be about etc.. From that nothingness, words, images came to me. It opened up at such ease. It was already there for me to have, I was getting in the way..

Initially I was gonna stay in and do a meditation tonight to receive what I needed to write in the group. I got it, plus I got so much more;) Just because I trusted my intuition..

After I left, I went into pret to eat some yumness, someone working there asked me if I liked coconut and offered me the coconut bite thingy for free without me even asking..

When women come together, magic happens. I saw that once more tonight. Thank you @cuchira for being you, allowing every single woman in the room to be themselves, unapologetically. What you're doing is indescribable in words, you're such an inspiration. Love you goddess πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’œ
