How To Speak Power Into Your Life

Pink1

We are all looking for the same thing in life: To love and be loved, feel good, important and worthy, have a purpose, live our passion, be inspired and so on.

But what many of us don’t realize is just how powerful we are. How much control we really do have when it comes to living the life of our dreams and showing up big.

We think we need more money, to look differently, be a certain age or from a certain family, wait for the “right” person to come along, rack up a million social media followers, have something or be anything else than what and who we are right now.

I’m calling BS on that self-limiting story. I’m telling you that whatever you want, you can decide to call it into your life today at this very moment.

It only takes two words: I am.

Whatever follows these words will find you, and show up in your life, so be very conscious and deliberate about what you attach I am to.

For example, if you find yourself constantly saying, “I am so tried, frustrated, confused, broke, lonely, heartbroken, sad, angry.” I don’t need to know you to know what your life looks and feels like. I bet it’s pretty tiring, frustrating, confusing, lacking, lonesome, heartbreaking, sad and upsetting. Am I right?

That’s because when you say I am…, you’re inviting in whatever you attach to it. In other words, you are giving it permission to be in your life (good or bad).

What if instead you said, “I am so excited, happy, free, healthy, loving, abundant, valuable, smart, kind, attractive, supported and safe.” I can only imagine how much better you would feel and how different your life would look.

This isn’t about lying to yourself and saying, “I am in perfect health,” when really you are sick. Today, for example, I am under the weather, but I’m not focusing on that. I keep saying, “I am so lucky to get to spend the day in my robe writing  blogs and doing work that I hope inspires others to feel empowered.

I am empowered. I am honoring my body with rest and nutritious food. I am thankful for my cozy home to create in. I am blessed with beautiful friends and family. I am happy.”

You get the idea. So while physically I may not be 100%, I still feel really great! And by feeling great, I naturally attract more great things into my life. I can say this with confidence because I am witness to it day in and day out.

That’s the powerful thing about the Law of Attraction, it is constantly working whether you believe in it or not. You can choose whether you want to curse or bless your life.

Try it out for yourself today. Once you become more conscious of your thoughts, you will begin to see patterns and how you can clean them up, and attract what you actually want into your life. Remember, you are in control and have all the power. When you blame, judge or make excuses, you are giving all of your power away. No Bueno!

What do you want to invite into your life today?

What or who do you want to let go of?

I’ll give you an example. I was talking to a dear friend who is trying to get pregnant. Instead of thinking and saying, “I’m too old to have a child, it’s so hard, it’s so expensive, I’m so scared, what if this bad thing or that bad thing happens, I’m so frustrated, I’m so overwhelmed, sad, etc.”

What if the new story my friend created was, “It is so easy to get pregnant, and so fun to try. I love all the quality time I get to spend with my husband. I am so healthy, feel great, and invite our new baby into our lives with open arms. I cannot wait to meet him or her. Wow, trying to get pregnant is so fun and easy. I am so happy!”

Even just typing this made me happy! Can you feel the joy behind the language, thoughts and feelings?

Some people tell me, “Well, it’s hard to say positive things about myself, my work, my partner, etc.”

Are you telling me it’s easy to feel like crap all the time?!

I think we can all decide to choose again, and lean towards joy and what makes us feel good rather than live in fear and be miserable. Life is meant to be enjoyable! Let’s enjoy it!

The best part? The key to enjoying life doesn’t cost a dime.

We just have to consciously choose what we attach I am to.

I am thankful for all of you. Have a beautiful day!

A Simple Exercise For Deep Healing And Transformation

I have attended several spiritual seminars and retreats this past year, and the biggest take away from them all is the power of sharing your truth with others. There is so much strength and wisdom in being vulnerable and authentic.

When I share my story and speak my truth, my life is transformed. Trauma and sadness from my past lose power over me. I feel lighter as the tight grip of shame is released.

Opening up and listening to others also allows me to see how much we are all alike–we all long for the freedom to be ourselves, to be loved and accepted in a compassionate, judgement-free environment. We are all insecure in some way, we all battle with not feeling good enough, we all want to love ourselves deeper and more effortlessly. We want financial freedom, peace of mind, and to know that we matter.

Deep healing and transformation occurred for me through journaling and sharing truth. The exercise of writing down the story I’m ready to release, and replacing it with the story I’m choosing to create has proven to be life-altering for me.

I invite you to take some quiet time for yourself, and do the following exercise with me:

The story I release is…

For example, I wrote: I have so many sad stories when it comes to men. There’s no need to rehash them here. They’ve lived in my bones for years. I’m healing those sad stories.

In Costa Rica, I released all that sadness, and the stories I created around these men that aren’t based in reality, but fear:

Am I good enough?

Am I pretty enough?

When I accomplish more, I will be worthy of him. He will notice me, and want to be with me.

I’m not skinny enough for him.

It was my fault.

Why do I insist on loving men who do not love me?

 

This is where you get all your sadness, anger, disappointment and trauma out on paper. Take as long as you need. Get it all out. No editing needed. Just write. Cry. Release.

Once you are finished, you will now turn the page in your journal, and write the NEW story you are creating for yourself.

I wrote:

It all sounds so silly now.

It has nothing to do with them.

It was all happening for me.

It made me who I am today, and gosh I love that person. I light up a room. I tell the truth. I am beautiful just because. Any man would be lucky to be with me. I’ve done the work. I’ve worked my shit out. I own who I am. I have so much love to give. I know because I’ve given it so freely to others my entire life.

Now, it is my time. I’ve learned to give this ridiculously fierce love to myself. I am strong. I am powerful. I am happy and in love with myself. That’s how I know I am ready for my papi. Not so he can complete me, or allow me to live up to some silly societal standard, but because I deserve to have mirrored back to me the love I so freely give.

It’s time. I’m ready. Thank you for all the lessons. Thank you Raf and Sam (my deceased loved ones) for watching over me. I release you now, too. You are free to go, and let me love someone who truly loves themselves–only HE is the perfect match for me.

I love you, Kate 🙂 xoxo

I shared this story with the 14 other women on my SISTERHOOD retreat last week in Costa Rica. I sobbed the whole way through. It was a huge release to get it all out, be my most raw, vulnerable self, and call in the new story and life I am consciously creating.

The day after I returned home, I met the kind of man I have been praying for–the man I called in during my retreat. We had a beautiful first date the following night. I could easily project fear onto the relationship because of my past, but because I released all of that and now choose joy and love, I am able to relax, enjoy the moment, trust and expect miracles.

I wish the same for you. It is your choice. You have all the power. All you have to do is step into it.
