Return to love…you are that important!

backlit-bright-clouds-414578

From a young age we are taught how to dress, how to behave, how to act appropriately.  We are molded to fit in with our society, and thus we’re taught at young age to seek approval. We begin the journey of editing ourselves until the day we decide to start loving ourselves.  These messages of not being enough perpetuate depression, anxiety, addictions of all sorts, and relationship issues.

What if instead of editing yourself you choose to believe in yourself?  What if instead of dimming your light you choose to love yourself through your fears, through the unknown and through the uncertainty?

You are worthy of accepting yourself just as you are.  You are worthy of respecting who you are. You are worthy of being you and others recognizing who you are authentically.  You are worthy of being yourself. You are worthy of believing in yourself.  You are worthy!

When you decide to love yourself, you create space to explore your soul and start living with intention.

Here are a few tips:

Practice acceptance. Give yourself permission to accept yourself and others just as they are.  Your job isn’t to fix everything and everyone. Your soul’s purpose is love so love yourself unconditionally.

Move your body. When you find yourself back in a story, in an old thought or belief move your body.  Go for a walk, run, dance, yoga.

Practice gratitude. Begin your day and an end your day with gratitude. Write a list every day. Keep a journal by your bedside and fill the pages with your blessings. What you focus on grows, so choose what you want to put energy towards.

Make your health a priority.  How are you showing up for yourself? How are you loving your body, mind and spirit? Do you need to receive a Reiki healing? Try a detox? Drink more water? Try that yoga class you have always wanted to go to?

Celebrate yourself. Celebrate your accomplishments, your progress, your personal growth. Celebrate who you are!

Make a commitment to choose, honor, remember and love yourself every day. Practicing self-love is so important for your inner peace, happiness, health and life.

Love or Fear – What do You Choose?

clouds-light-mountains-45848“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” Marianne Williamson

“There are only two feelings: love and fear.
There are only two languages: love and fear.
There are only two activities: love and fear.
There are only two motives, two procedures, two frameworks, two results:
love and fear. Love and fear.” Michael Leunig

Are you living in fear or trusting in love? This is a life-changing choice that you make each moment. 

When we live from a place of love, anything is possible. If you’re in fear, you’re not in the vibration of love. When you’re in the vibration of love, you’re not fear. It’s impossible to be in both vibrations at the same time.  Where love exists that is where miracles and blessings happen. 

We all experience fear of some kind during our lives: fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of success, fear of being alone, fear of love, fear of not being understood, fear of criticism, or fear of the unknown. When fear presents itself, it’s what we do with it that makes the difference in our lives.  Every moment offers the choice to choose love or fear. 

When fear rules your life, you are not living to your potential. When you operate from love, it is easier to move forward and be focused on your heart’s desire.  When you choose love, you are allowing yourself to be whole, fulfilled and fearless. 

Begin choosing love each time you open yourself to blessings. Give yourself the gift of love, in ways that bring you joy and open your heart. You are beautiful, powerful and a blessing to the world.

Self-Compassion is Key to Living Well

back-view-beautiful-bloom-906002We are our own harshest meanest critics.  We are fearful of doing something wrong or making a mistake. The ‘little voice’ inside our minds is extremely powerful. This voice has significant impacts on our thoughts, emotions and behavior.

We all need to practice being more kind, compassionate and forgiving to ourselves.

We are in constant internal dialogue with ourselves playing the same theme song of “I’m not good enough” which wears us down. This continued loathing put us in a vicious cycle, inhibiting our ability to move forward. Somewhere, sometime ago, we stopped following our own hearts. We stopped making our voice, our passion a priority.

When we practice self-compassion our life becomes easier and we experience more blessings. Our relationships, career, and health flourish when we practice self-compassion.

You are the most important person in your life. Stop belittling, discrediting, undervaluing, and underestimating yourself. Give yourself permission to let go of self-judgment. Treat yourself as you would treat a cherished friend, with gentleness, patience and understanding.

While we are taught to have compassion for others, we forget that having compassion for ourselves is just as important. Speaking to yourself in a more kind, compassionate way takes practice, but it becomes easier. When you change your thoughts it impacts how you feel and influences your behavior.

You are more than the stories and labels you tell yourself.. Your career, your education, trophies, possessions, titles, and your bank account don’t determine your self-worth.  It is time to let go of the story that you are too much; you are not enough; you are flawed; you are a mess.

You are unique, and your purpose is to express your uniqueness.

What does your heart need? What makes you feel nourished? What do you love?

It is time to allow yourself to be all of who you are. It is time to love yourself and become your own best friend.clouds-colors-desert-979599

Seeing Life Through the Eyes of Love

eye-eye-lashes-eyeball-840810

“Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.” ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

When you see the world through the eyes of love, your perception changes. Love transforms hurt, fear, and conflict into harmony and grace. All it takes is a shift in perception from fear to love. Love brings healing and forgiveness.

When we judge others including ourselves, we are projecting old experiences of pain into the present moment. We all have our stories. We have all experienced the feeling of inadequacy. Fear, pain and despair occur in all of us when we lose our connection to our higher self.. If we want to have peaceful, loving lives and enriching relationships with others, be compassionate with yourself and others.

Are you choosing to see yourself, your body, your past, others, and your world through the eyes of the love?

alone-black-and-white-boy-551590

You have spent enough years criticizing yourself and others. You have spent years being afraid. Fear is when we allow ourselves to be disconnected from the infinite possibilities. When you choose to see through the eyes of love, it will catapult you into a place of blessings. Where there was once challenges, you now see opportunities and possibilities. This is simply a new practice – seeing life through your heart. In each moment, you have a choice to see the situation through the eyes of love or fear.

As you read this ask yourself:

Is there something in your life that you can apply seeing through the eyes of love?

Is there a person in your world that you are willing to do it differently? Are you willing to see them in their divine state?

When you see through the eyes of love, your perception changes. Make the choice today to start seeing with your heart rather than your eyes.

While you were making plans…..

close-up-compass-direction-841286

You are where God wants you to be at this moment. Every experience is part of his divine plan. -unknown

abstract-art-artistic-290617As the year progresses, it is becoming more clear that 2018 is a year of transition and transformation. A year of letting go of our old selves so we can be our Divine version.

This blog is inspired by Trine’s Facebook post – Loving Island life!💕 It’s crazy how one can be “ so absolutely sure” and yet then come a moment when God whispers “ … are you sure?” Celebrating 26yrs through thick and thin … the thinkable and unthinkable… forgiveness and love = magic 🔮

Every one of us have experienced the unexpected. It might have come as a diagnosis, a financial setback, separation, becoming your parent’s caregiver, sudden unemployment, or maybe the loss of a loved one.

Most of us grow up having expectations of what our lives will look like one day. But if your life is anything like mine, there is a vast difference between what you thought it would look like and what actually happened. What if that was always the plan? For, many years I was a preschool teacher then I had a near death experience that changed my life. Yes, God had other plans for me. When I went back to school every time I was fearful or wanted to control the outcome, I had to remind myself to trust and let go. Every time I wanted to quit I was reminded this is exactly where I was supposed to be.

When life takes an unexpected turn, it can be challenging to have faith, choose love and forgiveness. The moment you embrace the uncertainty and surrender, you will begin to feel at peace. Trust the process. Trust the unconventional. Trust the unknown. Trust that your life was never meant to look like everyone else and that’s okay.

We are unique in so many different ways. No one has the same fingerprints, DNA, irises or voice as you do. So why would our divine plan be any different?  Tour divine plan isn’t created on your expectations of how life should be. Your divine plan isn’t a rigid way to live life correctly. What is your heart calling you? What is tugging at you? What makes you come alive?

When you trust the process, you allow the Divine inspiration to guide you and lead you. You no longer need  life to look a certain way or be a certain way. Every step of the journey leads you to the place where you’re supposed to be.

When you trust the Divine Plan doors open up that take you places that you never imagined. Just remember you are always on perfect time. You are never too early or too late, too young or too old. Everything is just as it supposed to be.

Follow your heart into the unknown, and experience great joy and blessings.

World Peace Day Event

blur-bright-close-up-1078850

Friday night we honored World Peace. If you want love, give love to the ones who seemingly don’t deserve it. If you want respect, give respect to those who seemingly don’t respect you. If you want to be understood, listen and be present with what is being said, even when its a different than your opinion. Give what you want to receive and you will receive more than you can imagine. We have a choice to make in this moment. Even if we feel frustrated, confused, or scared, if we choose to be what we desire instead of fighting, we will experience peace.

The path to inner peace is through acceptance. Everyone can have inner peace. Every moment is an opportunity to be present with the experience. It is an opportunity to become fully present with yourself, to choose love, compassion and acceptance. Every moment is an opportunity to ask yourself -who do I want to be in this moment?

If we embrace the possibilities that present themselves in the here and now, we will experience blessings. The key is to become open to what is beautiful, truly important in life and be the very thing that you desire.

Each and everyone of us has the right to be who we are and if we accept that in another,  we will experience peace.

There was over a thousand world peace meditations around the globe. RWMC & Friends School came together to bring this global meditation to Hampton Roads. We blessed ourselves and our world with peace. We stared into each other’s eyes without an agenda, without giving advice, no words were said, we poured love on each other. Tears flowed as we just simply loved one another. Every moment we have an opportunity to look into someone’s heart and simply love them.

Thank you to Friends School, our sponsors and all the incredible volunteers for helping us make this a powerful night! Thank you to everyone who joined us.

Love,

Trine’
