Soul-Full Sundays Interview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a forum recently, the lovely Carrie, of carriehensley.com asked for volunteers for her popular Sunday Soul-Full Series.

I put my hand up at the opportunity to share my message…

What if I’m me? No one will like me…

My reflections this morning on my self created belief that if I’m being me, no one will like me…

Poo, farts & gluten intolerance…

poo, farts & gluten intolerance
What does yours look like?

Poo, farts & Gluten Intolerance…

Do you have issues with any of these;
+ Dealing with any of the line up in the image to your right
+ Feeling uncomfortable tension inside your gut & intestines – giving you that constant sense of bloat
+ Being that person at dinners out who has to ensure there is no Gluten in any of the dishes.

Does your stomach bloat at the very smell of bread?

Are you all to familiar with any or all of the above?

Does your poop look like any of the images except Number 7?

Well, I’m here to say, that it doesn’t need to be this way!  No-siree-bob!

I’ve been there, done that.  And I’m out on the other end, living with Number 7 once to twice a day, and life feels great!

Obviously it wasn’t always this way, otherwise this blog post wouldn’t exist.

It took me a good 1.5 years to transform what needed to shift in order to align to my path of power.

So I want to yell from the rooftops, that you can do it too!

It all started with diet eliminations.  The first being when I removed all forms of processed foods, sugars, carbohydrates from my diet in preparation for my first Womens Figure Body Building Competition.

This opened up a whole world of awareness for me.  How food affected my energy, well-being and my gut.  I learnt very quickly that eating bread for me at the time, made me sluggish, bloated & totally uncomfortable.

I put myself on a Gluten Intolerant diet, and that was that.  I must’ve followed that for 4 years, not thinking anything of it.  As Gluten free diets are ‘normal’ in our world today.

It was during this time, that one week I had an ache in the side of my torso that would not release.  I knew going to a Doctor wouldn’t be my way forward, so I asked Spirit to guide me to someone who could.  After a week, I found myself walking past a Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic and was guided to walk in.

The rest is history, but now on the other side of this journey – I can see how I absolutely needed to address some home truths about what was being held in my beautiful body, and how addressing them, transformed my health and well being, beyond what simply a change in diet could.  A change in diet was part of mine, as was the exploration of stored unprocessed emotions and old beliefs held within my physical body & mindset.

Transformation happens when all layers & levels of being are addressed.  Physical, mental and emotional.

When they are, the result is beyond what one could imagine prior to the journey.

I now offer packages that support individuals embarking on the healing of their digestive issues that will see them right through to the stage of completion and transformation.

Ongoing support is recommended for the changes and emotions that arise for individuals.

These sessions are available by Skype and Distance Healings.  One on One sessions are available if you live in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Sending so much love to your soul & beautiful digestive system within these words. <3

15 Days to Freedom – Day 2 – Identify 1 MIA to achieve in the next 15 days

Day 2 here I am!

If you haven’t heard, I signed up for a 15 day blog challenge.  Each day presents a new topic to blog about.
Todays is:  What is your Most Important Action that will leverage your business within the next 15 days.

Initially when I listened to Natalie’s Video this morning, I felt a surge of anxiety…

Holy Shit – what am I NOT doing!

I went straight into fear mode.

Natalie listed some examples of Most Important Actions, and it made me realize how far I am from, say, putting a client proposal together, creating video scripts, or launching a new product.

And this is my problem.  I can often feel deflated because I’m not where I would like to be.

I totally compare myself to all the other beauties out there who HAVE launched their books, who have a tribe of followers and generally look like they’re kicking ASS!

So I went through my little process of this, and acknowledged, right, I might not be at the stage of creating the above tasks, BUT this topic is a right kick up the bum, and I see myself as a proactive – motivated individual – SO what IS achievable for me?

I think the biggest obstacle – if I even bother to call it that – is Networking.  Telling people what I do!

Because I’m new in this town, and new to this bloody country for that matter – I am SO aware that I am yet to create my group of friends and network.
I have been aware of this, and so last week, I decided to take some action – and went into my local lululemon athletica store and asked for a job.
They’re not currently hiring, but that doesn’t mean that’s the end of that – it’ll be a work in progress.

But the MAGIC of the morning, from this MIA process is that upon my arrival at my gym this morning, I saw my friend T.  He asked me how I went with lululemon, and I shared what I did with you.  I shared my intentions around wanting to work for them again.  He suggested a recent opportunity that could exist within Studio 4 (my gym).  They’re currently seeking a membership consultant/reception person, and said he’d be happy to introduce me to the gym Manager if I wanted.  Studio 4

Long story short.  By the end of my workout – I knew I wanted to meet the Manager – so I did.

I have just emailed off my Resume to her, and who knows?  I could have a P/T role within my local gym…
Talk about getting clear on what you need & making shit happen!

What a wonderful opportunity it would be.  I could meet so many new people & get my word out there!

So – My Most Important Action is NETWORKING – telling people what I do.

And just incase you don’t know what I do…

I help individuals and groups of women align to their greatest Health, Increasing Self Love & Self Esteem.

Do you speak the language TRUTH?

Since getting regular with my writing and posting, I am learning that everyone has something to say, perhaps they just haven’t learnt how to say it yet?

I remember when I first met my coach, she was able to explain, in perfect detail, exactly how I was feeling, and describe a particular pattern I may have been caught in.

I remember thinking – I wish I could take this lady EVERYWHERE, so that she could articulate my words to my friends.  Also, I wondered if there was a course I could take to learn the language she spoke.

Today, I am reflecting on the time that has past since that session, and acknowledging that I NOW speak that language that she did in that session.

The language of TRUTH.

We are beginning to hear more and more of this TRUTH.  But what does it mean to you?

I reminds me of Mum saying to us kids, “now tell the truth”, as if we’d just done something naughty and now we have to fess up.

Fess Up.  Tell your Truth.  Speak of that which you have been up to.  That which is on your mind.

Who is scared of others knowing what is on their mind?

For a LONG time, I felt like I was a fraud.  Scared that people would find out that I was BULLSHIT.

Find out who the real me was, and then reject me for all the things I didn’t like about myself.

When I started my Personal Development Journey, my mask that I wore in the world, that showed everyone that I was ok, and that I had my shit together, it slowly began to fall away.

I had to develop a relationship with that part of me deep down.  That part that felt like I was a fraud, that part of me that was scared.  The part that was my TRUTH.  The TRUTH about how I felt about myself!  Who wants to admit that this is how they feel about themselves?  No one.  Which is why we hide behind our masks.

At Vision Quest, I set my intention to be a shining star in the world.  I threw that piece of paper into the fire, and walked away from it, not at all understanding the extent of the intention I had just created.

I had asked for all of my masks to be melted away, revealing my true self, my shining light.

On the weeks/months/years that followed, I had completely dismantled my false sense of self.

I was stripped back to the very core of who I was.

My shining light self, that was not yet shining.

My TRUE self, raw and vulnerable in the world.  Striped to expose that truth of the pain that had resided there.

During this time, I didn’t know this.  I didn’t know these words that I am explaining to you now.

I only knew Lost.  Fear.  Pain.  Sadness.

To society, I was depressed.

To my Nature Care peers, I was undergoing a Spiritual Emergence, maybe even an Emergency.

Most will take Anti-Depressants because it is not an easy path.  (no judgement – huge topic here…)

Day in, day out, showing up in the world experiencing this level of pain.

Living in a world that doesn’t accept this level of pain.

Take a pill, you will feel better.

Time will heal.

This too shall pass.

I’ve heard them all.

But to sit in the depth and TRUTH of this space, is a journey that even the bravest soul may cower.

TRUTH

What is your TRUTH?

Is it that you are scared?

Is it that you are in pain?

Is it that you are deeply unhappy?

We all know this language of TRUTH.

But do YOU speak it?

Or do you turn the other way?

Truth = Health = Love

It’s time to get REAL, get to your TRUTH.

I mean, if you’re striving for greater HEALTH then you have to get HONEST.

Really honest with yourself.

What say you are dealing with Gluten Intolerance?

I mean, that’s a Solar Plexus Chakra injury.

Your Solar Plexus Chakra is about your relationship with yourself, your ego, your sense of self in the world.

The organs it is related to:
– Stomach
– Upper intestine
– Adrenal glands
– Middle spine
– Liver
– Gallbladder
– Spleen

 

Now Spleen.  There’s one organ I have come to know well in my travels.

In Chinese Medicine, your Spleen holds the emotion of worry.  Now back in the day I would worry about EVERYTHING .

Think about it, do you worry over money, health, relationships, confrontation with peers, family, life, anything and/or everything?

Well all that mental chit chat you have going on in that noggin of yours, is going to affect your mate Mr Spleen (or Mrs).

Now did you know that the Spleen and the Stomach are good friends?

Well in someone who has Gluten Intolerance, they’re not even getting along, their relationship isn’t that great.

Its the Spleens job to support the Stomach to digest food, and if that ain’t happening, well then guess what?

Food doesn’t digest well.

Then you get all those (un)pleasant feelings associated with poor digestion.

– Gas
– Bloating
– Constipation
– Burping
– IBS
– Fungal & Parasite Infections…

You get the idea.

Soooo imagine if you were to acknowledge those worries, those fears.  Look at what their purpose is in your lill ole think tank…

I wonder what would happen?

Maybe your Spleen & Stomach might become friends again.  Maybe you might gain a greater sense of your self in the world.

MAYBE you might even begin to LOVE yourself.

Who can put their hand up right now, and honestly say they LOVE themselves?

I can.

You know why?

Because my Spleen & my Stomach are now BEST friends!
