I ASK.

I ASK

This is a daily practice, the most simple and powerful.
Asking: myself, my guides & source, each morning:
– What is is I truly desire?
– What are the 1-3 things I can do to speed up this manifestation?
– Where will you have me go? What will you have me do? What will you have me say and to who? ACIM

Tune in.
Listen.
Trust.
Take aligned action.

As I reflect back over the past few years and all of the things I have SEEN manifest in my business and life, this process and practice never fails.

The things that haven’t worked of felt good have been due to an external search or looking to someone / something outside of me for the answers. Or when I haven’t trusted or taken fast enough aligned action…

Ideas move on.

It’s SO much bigger than you and what you’re currently asking for is only a fraction of what’s possible for you and waiting for you to say yes and align.

This is where support, coaching and guidance come in; working with those who are able to help you to connect to your true desires, your vision, highest identity and open up to receive and SEE it all.

Life is short.

Go. For. It!

There’s nothing to create, make, manifest; really.
Everything you want already exists.
Waiting for you to:
Ask.
Listen.
Trust.
Say yes.
Believe.
Take action.

How did you…?
This is a question I get asked almost daily.
– How did you book THAT gig?
– How did you become a fully booked coach?
– How did you get that role?
– Published?
– Connection?
– Opportunity?
– Experience?

My rebel tendency serves me well in creating because I don’t play by the rules. * if you haven’t check out Gretchen Rubin’s ‘4 Tendencies’, I highly recommend it.

There are so many protocols, expectations and societal ‘rules’ about how to behave, who we can and can’t talk to and it’s so easy to put people on a pedestal BUT…
We’re ALL human!

There’s always a way to contact / connect with anyone! No matter who they are.

And deep down you know that and if you REALLY tried, you’d find it’s not that hard.
Pretty much everyone is on the www these days and because we’re all so connected online, we’re only ever a couple of steps of separation from anyone.

Your next client.
Job.
Role.
Opportunity.
Experience.
Friend.
Relationship.

What really stops you is self-belief and fear of rejection.

You gotta ‘go for the no’

NO

What’s the worst that can happen?

Let’s reframe it…

Next One

Every no brings you closer to the yes… and just one yes can be life-changing.

So ask. Ask again.
Skip the queue, be courageous and ask who you want for what you REALLY want.

And better yet, take the pressure off and be of service. That’s what you truly desire anyway, isn’t it!?
How can you help them?
Contribute?
Support?
Serve?

They might say no but they might just say yes.
“what is meant for you will not pass you by”

What’s the most powerful question you can ask today?
Start with yourself.

How can I…?
Who can I…?
What can I…?

Ask powerful questions, receive powerful answers.

Then go have one interesting conversation with one inspiring person today.

See what opens up for you.

Decide To Bloom

And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was greater than the risk it took to bloom.”Anais Nin

WHY do you want what you want? It’s so much fun to imagine our dream life, to know that we can create our reality, and to be open to the possibilities of our future. But a big question I always help my clients get to the bottom of is: WHY? Why do we want that for ourselves. 

Yes, we want to help others. Yes, we want to earn more money. Yes, we want our short time here to count for something. But it’s important to recognise (but not dwell on) the things we don’t want anymore, too.

Because sometimes, simply imagining life remaining exactly the same as it is now, is the boost of power you need to DECIDE to bloom.

Try it now: think about your life in one year, five years, ten years from now. What do you see for yourself? What do you want to bring about for yourself? What do you want to decide to make happen? 

Now try this: imagine that in one year, five years, ten years from now, life is exactly the same as it is today. Your bank balance, your daily routine, your business model, your mindset. 

Is it OK with you for things to remain exactly the same? 

Is it OK with you to remain tight in a bud and not discover or share your full potential?

Or are you SO ready to bloom, blossom, grow, expand, and shine like the freakin’ supernova you are? 

If your answers to those questions went something like: No! No! YES! – this is for you…

#ComfortZoneCrusher – Lie With Your Fear

” Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.” – Marianne Williamson

If you follow me on social media you may have seen the image above on your feeds.
The photo above is of my feet, while lying down on the platform at Oxford Circus tube station…

I don’t make a habit of lying down on busy tube platforms, but that’s the point: to break habits, social norms and get uncomfortable, to get comfortable.

I talk a lot about fear, with clients, in workshops and talks… so when I saw Till Gross’ Ted Talk about his #ComfortZoneCrusher challenge, it sparked my imagination and appealed to the adventurous, daring, playful, child in me.

I’ve always been up for a challenge and push myself to take on things outside my comfort zone; and as I encourage others to do the same, I like to lead by example…

It’s when out of our comfort zone that we learn and grow the most, when faced with fear and discomfort, we must adapt to our new situation, surroundings and feelings.  

When there is no where to hide and no one to support us, we have no choice but to call on our own strength, resilience and character.  We get to know who we truly are, in our naked, human truth.  Masks off and security blanket in the wash.

So, I signed up for the #ComfortZoneCrusher challenge….

The first challenge was to lie down in the street for 30 seconds.  I left the emailed challenge invitation in my ‘to do’ folder, peeking at it every now and then, my ego quickly jumping in with lots of excuses as to why today wasn’t the day:

  • It’s raining!
  • Where?
  • People will think you’re crazy.
  • You can’t do it in the town you live!  You might see people you know!
  • You have too much to do.
  • Don’t be ridiculous…

Then I realised that those excuses apply to anything we want to do.  There will always be reasons not to do them.  Our ego’s will always jump in and try to keep us ‘safe’… to keep us small.

But as Marianne Williamson put so well…

” Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.”

So encouraged by my change in perception and a conversation with a friend and fellow coach; Elloa Atkinson – founder of The Fearless Expression Challenge, I decided to go for it.

Elloa and I did the challenge on the same day and were joined by some brave friends and clients, all in different locations.

I had no idea what time or where I was going to do my lie down but it was raining heavily the day I decided to do it, so had another excuse to back out…

Then on the way to a meeting in central London and had a sudden urge to lie down in the middle of my packed tube carriage.  My heart began racing just at the thought and I was so close, but chickened out.

While waiting for my next tube, I had another impulse to just do it… so before the left side of my brain intervened, I found myself crouching to lie down in the middle of the platform, at a very busy, Oxford Circus tube station.

I DID IT!  I have no idea how and it no feels like a dream but it wasn’t actually as scary as I thought…. and that is the point.  To do something extremely out of our comfort zone in order to calm our autonomic nervous system (the fight or flight response) and learn that the thing we’re fearful of is not so bad.

So, if you see someone lying down on a street near you (maybe check they’re OK first), give them a smile and wave… or join in?!

Thanks so much to our friends and family who joined in on #FearlessFriday.

Believe It To See It – Get What You Want

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “I’ll believe it when I see it” but I believe the opposite it true, that you have to believe it first…

I’ve been speaking to lots of people about the fear of not being good enough recently, which is something we all experience from time to time.  That got me thinking about all the times I’ve manifested the things I desire and one of the common threads is that I’ve had complete self- belief and confidence that I will get it, experience it or create it.  I believed it was already mine.  

From relationships to jobs and even money, when I’m clear about exactly what it is I want, visualise it and believe it will happen, it happens.  The opposite has also been true… if I have any doubt, my reality matches my belief.

Check out my 5 min ‘Zone Of Creation’ meditation to help you get in the right headspace.

We have to be a vibrational match for the things we desire.  If we don’t believe we’ll ever get that relationship, that job, the money, the house, or whatever else, we probably won’t.  If we believe we’re not good enough, we’ll feel that way and experience situations that add to those feelings.

Lack of belief blocks us from manifesting the things we desire, as we we’ll always be holding something of ourselves back.  When we don’t fully believe, we won’t take inspired action, we’ll make excuses, become distracted and despondent and then give up before we’ve even given it a real shot.   

Everything that has ever been created began as an idea and in someone’s unwavering belief that it would become a reality.  Cars, air travel, the telephone, landing on the moon!  You wouldn’t be reading this if it wasn’t for someone believing in the possibility of the internet… what a mad idea that must’ve seemed to some?! – it still blows my mind… here I am typing words on a screen, that will soon be available for people to read worldwide!  

Thomas Edison attempted 10,000 times before he invented the electric light bulb!

“I have not failed 10,000 times—I’ve successfully found 10,000 ways that will not work.”

Whatever we want to experience externally, we must believe internally first.  We need to believe in ourselves and our desires.

So if you’re feeling stuck and not experiencing the things you desire, begin by looking at your beliefs. 

  • What thoughts are you listening to?  

  • What limiting beliefs do you have?  

The first step to manifesting is to understand and let go of those blocks.  Get to know what thoughts might be cluttering your mind with fears and doubt, make room for self-affirming thoughts and new energy…

“Energy flows where attention goes!”

It also helps to clear any physical blocks.  If you want to manifest something new but are holding on to the old, how will there be room for anything?  

For example, if you’d like some new clothes but have a wardrobe full of stuff you never wear, you’re not making room for anything new and are sending a message to yourself and the universe that you need to hold on to the old as you don’t fully believe you’re going to get (or maybe deserve!?) something new.  By holding on to the old, whatever that is, we’re practicing a scarcity mentality.  

There is enough to go around but we must believe that!

Belief is one step to manifesting what we desire, we must also be completely clear on what it is we want.  Book a FREE clarity call with me and learn how you can get what you want and take fierce action towards creating the life you dream of.

Here’s to expecting and receiving miracles!

Love Yourself & Life Will Love You

I almost cried on stage the other night when one of my workshop attendees proclaimed to the group that she found it really difficult to think about anything she loved about herself, as she found it hard enough to think of anything she liked about herself.  This beautiful and witty woman (I’m guessing in her 60’s) made the whole group chuckle as she went on to pick apart her appearance and continued with how we feel worse the older we get.

“The more negative thoughts we focus on, the more the story builds and we barely have a leg to stand on, when we stand on trial, in front of our mirror jury of one and are immediately sent to the jail of not good enough!” 

While she was funny and making light of it all, what she was telling us was her truth and my heart broke for her, for the years spent not realising or embracing her unique beauty and for all the many other women who feel the same, wasting so much energy scrutinising our appearances and trying to squeeze into an unrealistic beauty mold, set by an f’ed up patriarchal society and beauty/ advertising industries that pray on our insecurities.

I spent many years in comparrison overwhelm, speaking to myself unkindly and seeking aproval from others and while I am by no means immune to it all now I decided a long time ago that I was going to re-direct my attention to postive thoughts and affirmations, learning to love myself and appreciate the unique beauty we ALL have.  It’s not always easy and I suspect a lifelong practice and commitment but we only have this body and relatively short life in this form, so surely it’s better to practice focussing on all the great things about ourselves and feeling greatful for all we have?!

We are much more affective if we feel good – if we start with kindness and compassion for ourselves, we are able to offer much more to others and be of higher service in the world.  We invite others to treat us the way we feel about ourselves too – our energy is visable and introduces us before we do.

Confidence, is an energy and is ultimately wrapped up in how we present ourselves, which is linked to how we feel about ourselves.  

I don’t believe anyone ever feels 100% confident (we’re only human after all) but we can commit to treating ourselves with the same love and respect we wish for our loved ones and in practicing positivity and gratitude we can learn to like ourselves, then love ourselves more.

There’s no time but the present!  It’s especially vital for us to lead by example and share positive body confidence with our children.

Here are 5 ways you can begin practicing self-love today:

1- Positive Affirmations & Gratitude

Our subconcious doesn’t differentiate between true and false, it simply believes  everything we feed it as fact and files it away, to be brought up to back up a matching thought later.  So you can see how easy it is to get sucked into negative thought patterns – the more negative thoughts we focus on, the more the story builds and we barely have a leg to stand on, when we stand on trial, in front of our mirror jury of one and are immediately sent to the jail of not good enough!  

Be mindful of your inner monologue.  If you catch yourself thinking anything negative, be kind, forgive yourself and replace it with a positive thought about yourself or with something you’re grateful for.  Gratitude is always a good place to start as it’s impossible to also be negative if we focus on what we’re grateful for.  Also try using positive affirmations, even if you don’t believe them at first- remember, our subconcious doesn’t know the difference – our ethos at Bodhi Babes is: Brave, Bold, Beautiful – try saying I am Brave, I am Bold, I am Beautiful anytime you need a bit of a confidence boost or need to interrupt negative thoughts about yourself.

3- Nourish Yourself

As well as being mindful of toxic thoughts, it’s also important to be mindful of what other poisons we’re feeding ourselves.  Everything that goes into our bodies, minds and comes into contact with our skin is absorbed by our cells and affects the way we feel, mentally and physically.  So, the more natural, wholefoods and vitamin filled, plant based products we use the better, to support our bodies in performing at an optimal level.  

4- Move!

Exercise will help you look and feel your best. Movement is also great to get you out of your head and into your body… you’ll soon find out how you’re feeling once you get moving. If you’re feeling stuck, down or sad, head out the door for at least a 10 min walk and you’ll feel so much better!
For maximum benefits get outside for some vitamin D and fresh air. There are loads of great outdoor fitness classes available and many offer a free trial. Google what’s on in your local area.  Meetup is also a great way to find fitness groups, which are often cheaper and sometimes free.

If you’re not ready for a class just yet, a regular brisk walk in the park will do wonders for your mood and figure! If you’d like a companion, why not offer to walk someone’s dog for them: www.borrowmydoggy.com

Walking is also a great way to catch up with friends… ditch the tea and cake and get moving ladies!  OK, tea and cake is sometimes needed too!

4- Find Your Tribe

 “We are a combination of the 5 people we spend most time with.”

The people we spend our time with influence how we behave and feel, so we had  better choose wisely!  Maybe it’s time for an audit of the people you spend time with? Which arrangements do you make that you don’t really want to?  Which people are draining your energy?  Be mindful of how you spend your time and who with.  

“Magic happens, when women come together for a common purpose.  When women support one another, we are a force to be reckoned with!”

5- Connect With Nature

I jumped on to Periscope last night (something I’m still getting used to) and asked my lovely audience what things they did for self-care and to help them feel good about themselves and lots of great things came up, including: massage, meditation and my favourite – walks in nature.  I always feel great after time in nature, whether that’s a walk with my dog, Troy, running through fields or SUPing.  It’s really grounding and a wonderful way to get some peace.  So even if it’s just 10 mins on the grass at your local park, take some time to unplug and reconnect in nature today.

What Do Your Feelings Sound Like?

Every day I journal and plan in my #DesireMap planner, which as well as a planning/ journal section, also has space for setting intentions, goals and keeping track on progress, each week, month and throughout the year.  It’s also filled with inspirational quotes and thoughts – today’s was: “pick a song for each of your core desired feelings”

So I’ve put together a mini play-list of songs that resonate with my CDFs today:

  1. Vibrant – Clap Your Hands, Parov Stelar
  2. Inspire – Your Soul, Rhodes
  3. Bodhi – How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, Florence & The Machine
  4. Love – Only Love, Ben Howard

Play

Music is one of the fastest ways to generate the feelings we desire and what a wonderful way to really connect with how we most want to feel. 

So get your dancing shoes on and create a playlist for yourself, filled with songs that help you to feel the way you want to feel.

I’d love to hear your songs, so please share your playlist in the comments below.
