Love Yourself

Believe in yourself, love yourself and know what your worth. I think there is a journey for everyone to learn to love themselves and create themselves.

There are times when I get caught up on instagram looking at all these girls with a few followers and end up comparing myself or putting myself down when I know I shouldn’t be doing that. The secret with these instagram girls is that they would have a professional photographer or someone who is there to capture every moment, photos taken at certain times of the day due to lighting, photoshop, many filters, fake tan, hair, makeup and many other things that arn’t real for many of us in the moment. Instagram is their full time job and we think they just look that amazing all the time.

I learnt to recognise that when I am putting myself down or comparing myself to those girls of instagram I just try to use it to motivate myself to create my own reality. So instead of just beating myself up about it, my thoughts will be  how did they get there? Obviously I can see that they work out a lot with what their bodies are showing me.  I know that if I choose to change what I do each day so perhaps eating healthier  it will benefit me with my goals and inspirations more.  I also choose to change my mind and my habits… ‘You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.’  I tend to sleep a lot and always drink water so that is a habit I’d like to keep but things I’d like to practice could be having positive affirmations towards myself, life and goals, nourishing my body as well as keeping my vessel oiled up and strong by keeping active more often so I now add some weights to my weekly workouts.

 

Don’t worry about what other people think because your not doing it for their approval your doing it for yourself and to add colour to your world and make your soul grow. Sometimes you have to ‘fake it until you make it’ and when I say that I mean believe you are or have it until  you finally reach your goals. So if you don’t feel the confidence then try ‘faking’ it until you have it, if you believe it then you can achieve it.

There are so many ways to show you love and care for yourself so don’t put yourself down just because you see something doesn’t mean your worth less. Perhaps this could just be a sign you’d like to change your habits and do things that take you to your higher self.

What are your thoughts?

New year New you

Every year you get a clean slate to create what ever you want within the upcoming year. Given a gift to create a whole new year and a whole new you. It marks a time where we can just reset and set not resolutions but intentions. Resolutions are something your trying to resolve and we are not trying to resolve anything but intend create something and manifest something. Whatever the first intention you set, see how far you can take the intention because whatever the intention that you first set was see how much bigger you can take that because the bigger the intention, the bigger the dreams and the bigger it manifests into a more  beautiful life.

Perhaps create a one  or two word theme so everything that you think about is focused on what you can do and how you can live this one theme. You can focus on this theme throughout the year and the theme is guiding the light to whatever you want to pursue.

Some themes could be: gratitude, health and fitness, being more bold, express  more positivity, being more courageous or  adventurous. Something that will take you to your higher self.

You could also use this time to use the lessons you’ve learn and grown from and reflect on that to keep growing. This year is going to be challenging but also think of those big shining sparkling moments and just know your going to have moments like that.

-We have this moment in the palm of our hands shining like a star and melting like a snowflake.-

Its life and the human experience but as long as your manifesting more magical moments and believing in yourself more and more day and having long periods  of feeling empowered then thats the greatest . But just be ready also for the challenges that you face, it could be a very vanilla year to give you nothing to challenge you with which the puddles of life are best in order to help you grow. Our life would be very mundane if we didn’t have those hardships and issues that we think we can’t overcome and then we do overcome them  we are just amazement of the things that we can do when we set our minds to it.

In order to keep growing and evolving you have to be uncomfortable at times and no one wants to get out of their bubble, and then the universe shakes the foundations of our lives and it feels like the ground is getting ripped out beneath us. For example a bird is not afraid it’s going to fall of the branch because its trust is in its wings and not the branch so when your foundation gets shaken just trust in yourself because you’ve got it and everything is going to be fine.

This year will take you to the next level  especially when you take your intention and amplify to it to the highest possible divine expression. Its our small day to day actions that matter, each decision will make each chapter. Our thoughts and words are our paintbrushes in our lives. Ask yourself how do I feel in 2018 and what do I invite in my life in 2018.

Don’t hold back with anything you that you think of manifesting, it’s time and the world needs you, don’t hold back even a little bit, even if its 30 seconds you dream of it manifest because eventually it will become 60 seconds and keep just keep growing until that is your whole life. Live your magic.

Love & light Jo
