Today I realised that….

….it’s ok for me to be happy.

That took a huge chunk of time to realise, but I no longer feel guilty for being happy. It’s ok. It’s allowed.

Wow!

Recovering from trauma and PTSD episodes is really hard, but once I let go of how I thought I should feel and just allowed myself to be……that’s when the miracles started to happen. The miracles of happiness and feeling that happiness right to my core. The miracle that I actually love who I am, and that’s how it should be. The miracle that allows me to trust people who aren’t my family.

Wow!

Be happy, start living.

Moonday Cards – 21/09/20

The end of a tough cycle approaches. The end of a rough time is forecast when this card is drawn. Release control and trust in the Universe. It’s time to stop fearing the worst.

How hard are you willing to work for what it is you desire? This card is a reminder that to achieve what we want, we must work hard and put it the effort.

Are you ambitious? Are you prepared to pull out all of the stops to make your professional dreams a reality?

This card is telling us that tough times are behind us. This card is telling us that if we work hard we can make our dreams a reality.

Once again I’m blown away by the accuracy in these cards. They are always on point with whatever is going on in my life and the messages are always clear.

I hope that this is the case for anyone who feels drawn to this card – or any card I draw for Monday Mooncards. If you feel called and drawn to this card then this message is for you too.

Monday Mooncards – 14/09/20

It never ceases to amaze me how these cards work in sync with me. I do share them on here, there’s a message for everyone who cares to accept it, but they are also a message for me too.

Right now in my life I’m embarking on transformation and beginning a new chapter in my life. It’s the same me, but perhaps with a different side showing. So how very apt this card is!

The message is also one of letting go, whether that be of a person or a situation, you will know which it is.

Detaching from a situation allows you to let your true self shine through and show the world who you really are.

Shine bright like a diamond.

Tuesday’s Thought – 08/09/20

Feeling empowered is not an indulgent whim, I think we all should embrace this feeling, and here’s why.

When you feel passionate enough about something to take action you are feeling empowered. You allow this empowerment to let you take action and make your world a better place for you and others.

We all know that 2020 has been a right doozy of a year, some have thrived whilst others have barely survived, and yet there are others who have muddled through. There is nothing wrong with anyone from any of these categories, people handle a crisis in different ways.

I’ve felt a sense of empowerment sweep over me these last few weeks and it has lead me to realise that feeling empowered is a very useful tool in a soul love teaching sort of way.

Sometimes we are led to believe that empowerment means we must jump aboard the latest trend – whatever that may be. We are led to believe that to be empowered we must be fighting for a cause greater than our own needs.

There’s nothing wrong with fighting for your own needs. There’s nothing wrong with feeling empowered about circumstances you want to change in your own life, never feel ashamed of putting yourself first. We all know the “put your own oxygen mask on first” analogy, and we can all agree that this is a wise move.

The reason this analogy gets used so much is because we all need to take care of ourselves first. We cannot pour from an empty cup. When you stop to think about this it makes total sense.

Thus it is the same when we need to feel empowered. We need to champion our own cause first and foremost. Taking care of our own needs is not selfish. How are we supposed to get truly passionate about any cause if we cannot even get passionate about our own lives?

To be empowered about improving our lives is an excellent starting point. As we move through the pandemic and other turbulent events that are happening around the world we need a sense of purpose in our own lives to get us through.

Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling your own life. It allows you to set healthy boundaries and really see where your energy leaks are coming from. It allows you to find purpose and manoeuvre your life towards a path that you really want it to take.

Most of all it gives you a passion for living your best life, which in turn helps you to focus on causes that are dear to your heart. That’s when you move onto being empowered about other things. But first you have to tend to yourself.

Tuesday’s Teaching – 01/09/20

If 2020 has taught us anything it is that life can change dramatically in the blink of an eye.

We are trying to rebuild our lives whilst the world is still falling apart all around us. I believe this is a must for us all, despite what this extremely weird year has brought for us.

Holding on to pain and suffering is not going to bring us our lives back as they once were. The way things were is dead and gone. We have to use the pain and suffering as stepping stones to out new way of life.

We owe ourselves that much. We owe ourselves the honour of getting to live beautiful lives. We owe it to the people who haven’t survived this crazy year.

Live life, passionately, fully, with gratitude and enjoyment. Create the life you want for yourself, use the crazy energy that this year has left to propel you forward on a new venture.

Live your life with passion.

Moonday Card – 31/08/20

There is a YES coming your way. This card is one of the most auspicious cards in the deck; it’s a very positive card and suggests something new and exciting is developing.

The message from the Universe is that you’re starting all over again in some way. If you’ve been feeling stagnant in any area of your life, this card is reminding you that life goes in cycles and you’re moving into a new cycle now.

This is the time to wipe the slate clean. You will soon start to feel more hopeful about the direction your life is going to go in.

IMPOSTER SYNDROME.

This has been on my mind a lot lately. I’ve been doing a couple of collaborations with some folks, and yep, you’ve guessed it, I’ve questioned my ability and my right to be there.

I’m as qualified as everyone else, but I can’t shake that feeling of being a fraud. Everyone is telling me that I am welcome and worthy and wanted. It’s just my thoughts that are trying to catch me out.

It’s got to the point where I’m having panic attacks before I do my role and I’m feeling stressed out. So I’ve been working on my self esteem and making sure to do some breathing exercises beforehand.

As always, be kind and gentle with yourself if you are going through similar.
