To all the ladies who feel stuck,
In my last post, I talked about the first step to take to get unstuck and I shared you need to know what you want and you need to think big.
This is the best way to start because you can't get to where you want to be unless you kinda know where you're going, right?
Another point I want to talk about is that change will not happen unless you reach that point, The Breaking Point, because we won't really be motivated to change unless we are so uncomfortable that it's more uncomfortable than the fear of making the changes.
Our brains are built to keep us alive, not happy. So it's pretty uncomfortable for us as human beings to make these changes.
So how do you know you're at that point? Well just like I said above. It's more uncomfortable to stay where you are.
Some of the things I hear from women and have felt myself at one point are:
When we eliminate unnecessary obstacles and simplify our surroundings, we can experience more ease and harmony in our daily lives. Whether it's decluttering your space, streamlining your schedule, or simplifying your relationships, take small steps to create more flow and enjoy the benefits of a more peaceful and fulfilling life. “
Today I want to talk with you about all those little and sometimes big things that clog us our energy space and create more stress and anxiety.
As a person who can vert easily become stressed or also be drawn into a state of anxiety, these “little things” actually have some pretty big effects on our lives. Let me share some with you that can have this effect on your life.
One is our space, For a moment look around you and do a quick audit of your space. Ask Yourself, is it cluttered? Is it filled with the things I love and bring me...
I'm excited to check back in with all of you sharing with you some of the discoveries I've had with some new self-care practices that I have been testing out on myself.
Last we talked I was doing some breathing practices and also some Qi Gong.
I recently did a podcast with a breathwork facilitator which was pretty interesting if you would like to listen here's the link:https://www.tinastinson.com/podcasts/soul-aligned-self-care/episodes/2147893490
I feel like the breath work has been extremely valuable to me and I also believe this will be a lifelong daily practice because it's been so effective. It can instantly lower my blood pressure and make me feel at ease and release any tension that I have in my body. There are many different breathwork practices that you could try and can easily be searched on YouTube for some free videos. I like doing box breathing and then just deep breaths in with double the breath out. This seems to work best for...
As we start our new year we all have dreams, goals, new things we want to come into our lives and other things we want to let go of.
Today I would like to share with you how I show up for myself and why it’s important for you to know that you can do this for yourself also.
If you want some of the things to change in your life or if you maybe want to change everything then the first step is to KNOW that in order for things to change, you have to change. You can’t do, act, & be the same and expect different results.
The first step in this endeavor is to just make the DECISION that you are doing this for YOU and no one else but YOU. It’s important because you most likely won’t bring about big changes if there is not a lot of passion behind it. So, ask yourself the question, why do I want to do this and why is it important?
The next thing I want you to know is that to make big changes you don’t have to take huge leaps. You just have to leap. Small...
Very recently I had a day. I was just feeling so blah and I was kinda mad because I had a lot of stuff I wanted to do.
But I know when I’m feeling this way It’s not the right time for me to write or do a live. So I’m basically not getting any work done.
So then my feelings move into not just blah but also a little bit stressed because I know I’m not getting anything done.
Have you been here? You need to get stuff done but your feeling kinda sad and then you're stressed because you're not getting anything done. LOL. A vicious circle.
This is when I know it’s time to treat myself to some self-care.
Here are a few ways I treat myself. When I take the time and give myself the space I can bounce back in just a few hours. Sometimes I just need a day though.
What Do You Think Your Limitations Are?
So as you begin to dream bigger and set big goals what does the voice say in your head?
What do you think might be blocking you, stopping you from having everything you dream of?
At the moment you write down that big dream, what pops up in your head? Pay attention because a lot of the time, we are so used to this negative voice in our head, we don’t even notice it.
When working with people and when I’m working on my dreams we will often think, I have a block.
What is my block? Why can’t I figure it out? Why can’t I get there?
Well over time I learned it's hiding right there in your head, you just have to pay attention.
So the next time you're working on something or writing out your goals and desires in the morning, stop for a moment and listen.
What is that voice saying? Some people call it the ego, and some have a name for it. Negative Nancy, Debbie Downer, Party...
In order to start to dream big and to be able to bring these dreams into our reality, we need to get aligned with them.
We know our core values, so we know where we want to focus our energy. But how do we protect our energy and get into a higher vibration in our lives?
Now if you haven’t yet written out your core values, go back and listen to episode 012 of the Soul Aligned Self Care Podcast
However, you don’t need to do this to benefit from reading this blog post today. So continue on and listen to 012 later.
We do this by putting ourselves in the right environment surrounding ourselves with positive influences and also, consuming the right media for us personally.
Everybody is individual, they have their loves and dislikes. This can be very personal. But I can help guide you and show you what works for me personally and you can adjust it to fit into your life.
To me, this is very powerful deep-level self-care and love. It’s...
In order to get where you want to go, to reach those big goals & dreams, you need to know where you are starting. You need to acknowledge yourself, and all the successes and struggles you’ve experienced.
Just like when you're driving somewhere using a GPS, you need a starting point and then a destination in order to get to where you’re going successfully.
Your life is the same way so today we are going to talk about how we can acknowledge, celebrate, and then activate ourselves to move forward in order to get out of that stuck position.
We are going to take a fun and quick assessment to see where you might be out of balance in your life and then we will focus on how to find out what our core values are. Only after this can we start to dream big and then start to move toward those dreams.
Are you ready to get started?
Starting with the...
If you knew you could have anything you wanted without fail, what would you pursue?
This is the magic question.
Most people don’t go much further than this because they don’t think they can have what they want.
They might think it’s too big, too much, too whatever.
Or, they might think, I’m too young, too old, not educated enough, not experienced enough.
The bigness of it overwhelms you and it feels much safer to stick with the status quo.
I’m here to tell you, if you can think it, dream it, you get to have it.
Think of it this way. As soon as it pops into your head, it exists. It’s there, bamm, you just started the creation process. Don’t leave it hanging!
Think about the i phone. If someone told you about a dream they had to create this handheld iphone/computer in the 70s you would have thought they were bat shit crazy.
But here we are.
We all have those times in our lives when we feel stuck, stagnant, and uninspired.
You could feel a bit lost and not know how to move forward. All you do know for sure is you don’t want to stay where you’re at right now.
It could be your home situation, a relationship, your job, or your business. It can be all of the above!
I can relate to this. I think a good part of the reason this happens is that we get too busy doing instead of just being. We get busy. Bust taking care of everything for everyone.
This is definitely more common for women just because of social expectations and traditions.
Some women take care of the home, the kids, their significant other, their parents, all outside appointments, planning family gatherings, etc..
They also work full time while doing this and don’t forget we need to look a certain way, be a certain way and for crying out loud we should be grateful.
Now I’m not saying these pressures don't sometimes haunt men but...
