When was the last time you swayed your hips for pleasure? When was the last time you allowed yourself to be taken by a moment of delight as you moved your body to something that inspired you?
AWAKEN TO NEW FEELINGS OF BLISS THROUGH MOVEMENT THAT LIGHTS YOU UP.
2) MINDSET: Sister if the tape you have set to replay in your head is “I can’t do this”, “I hate my life”, “it’s all too much” …. then guess what kind of experiences you’re going to attract? Yep … more stuff to make you feel overwhelmed, stretched thin and resentful. Think about it for a second. How creative do you feel about finding solutions when you are complaining about what’s not working? How willing and able are you to find humour in the situation if you’re filling the space with curses and blame?
Decide today to be more mindful of the way you talk to yourself and others about your life. You won’t catch yourself every time, and it’s ok to throw a pity party now and again, but for most part make the commitment to focus on shifting where you put your attention.
PLAY A NEW TAPE. ONE THAT MAKES YOU SMILE MORE OFTEN.
3) MEDITATION: So right now, here in this moment stop and take a deep breath, then release it with a long exhale. DON’T SKIP OVER THIS PART. Do it. Then take another. Now one more deep breath in and sigh to release it. Feel that? Yeah … that’s your nervous system getting a nano second of a break. Feels good doesn’t it. Being wired to ON 24/7 is EXHAUSTING.
Having no soft place to fall and feel held by the Universe is equally as taxing on the nervous system. Having to figure out all of the answers on your own is also a recipe for burn out. Find your style of meditation that helps you come back to calm more frequently and plug into the knowing that you are guided and supported by the Universe/God/Spirit.
You don’t need to sit cross legged for an hour to be in spiritual practice. Your meditation might be deep breathing yourself from a state of anxiousness into balance. It might be a prayer to the Divine asking to show you miracles and ease today. It might be a guided visualisation at bedtime to help you sleep.
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU DO TO PRACTICE. What matters is your intention and how often you return to your centre of well being.
This is life. It’s a freaking roller coaster of crazy some times and no matter how well you think you’ve got it all worked out – there will always be another opportunity to test you.
Plug back in to yourself. Take better care of your basic needs and pay attention to what goes on between your ears.
You are not alone. We all feel lost, pushed to our limit and like we want to quit some days.
If you’ve been looking for a sign to help you rise from your state of anguish – perhaps this is it.

After a recent miscarriage, I was meditating on the beach in Byron Bay, Australia. Out of the stillness of my grief, ‘Mama Goddess‘ – the business, was conceived. Later that year, she was ‘born’ and launched – making it my mission to bring light, healing and empowerment to women and mothers around the world.
