This Will Give You Some Inspiration

Hi Sensational Soul!

I want to remind you that even when you are feeling tired, even when you are feeling like you can’t do it anymore, and even if you feel like it’s never going to happen- KEEP GOING!

The reason I say this and believe this with my whole heart is because I have manifested some really WONDERFUL things in my life (and yes, I have even gone through extremely hard times emotionally as well) and the Universe tends to bless me right when I’m feeling a little off-kilter.

We Are ALL On A Journey, So Why Not Enjoy The Ride?

Life is full of ups and downs, no one is able to escape this because even mother nature, itself, experiences both wonderful blessings and perplexing hard times. All the particles in our Universe experience a crazy ride every single second of the day! Luckily, us humans don’t have to feel this roller coaster ride of particles within our phenomenal existence. See? I can find a silver lining in just about anything! Can you imagine feeling the collision of our particles colliding into other particles all day, every day? How exhausting! Okay…nerd girl is coming out…

If you are feeling down, feeling hopeless, feeling doubtful, feeling sad, and everything else that has you feeling a negative feeling, stop what you are doing RIGHT THERE and do something that brings about positive thoughts and feelings. This is the beauty of your mind: you can literally change your thought within a split second. What you focus on EXPANDS, so KEEP GOING! Seriously!

Acknowledge the negative thought, but don’t let it stick around. Check in with your mindset a few times per day: set an alarm to check in with your thoughts and feelings, set an alarm to remind yourself to get up and go for a walk, set an alarm to reaffirm your positive self-affirmations. Do anything that gets you into that feeling GOOD place as soon as you are feeling negative in any way.

Find Your Passions & Then DO Them!

You are ALLOWED to be positive and feel happy. You ARE worthy. The Universe DOES want you to have what you want. Blessings tend to happen right when you stop looking for them- they are blessings because they are sweet surprises!

Ask the Universe to give you a sign that it’s looking out for you. For example, I asked the Universe to give me a sign about the second book I’m currently editing. I have been seeing 1:11, 11:11, 4:11, 5:11, 6:11, and more 11s ever since! According to the angel numbers, I knew it was my answer “yes” to go for it! So I did!

It’s not published yet, but I’m getting very close to it and I CANNOT WAIT to help others with my Mastering Your Mindset journaling techniques and methods to shift your mindset- proven to work because it took stubborn, skeptical me from a place of depression and anxiety to now being a more carefree, thankful, and worry-free soul. This book is very different from the first one, but just as powerful! I’m also working on my audiobook of my first published book, Don’t Feel Stuck!

Find your passions in this world and ALWAYS follow your soul’s calling. Do you think Steve Jobs gave up after his first “failure”? Do you think he gave up after his 10th “failure”? Hell no! And neither should you! Your intuition IS your soul, so listen to it. You can do this! KEEP GOING every day!

Carpe Diem!

When You Feel Defeated As Fuck & You Want To Give In

38518841_10111990622458350_2716093852921364480_n

These past two days have been ROUGH on me mentally and emotionally. Normally I am a HUGE hustler, but in all honesty I feel I have been run over by an 18-wheeler and I feel defeated as fuck being an entrepreneur right now.

I started my business almost a year ago and while I have accomplished a LOT this past year, I still sometimes suffer from the comparison syndrome: I keep looking around at all these people who seem to have it all together online in their businesses and I ask myself, “how am I different? How can I help thousands of souls all around the world AND BE DIFFERENT? How do I stand out from this crowded cyberspace?”

Then I got a kick in the ass from my multi-millionaire business coach and she gave me the mental shaking I needed to receive: even if I didn’t have this business, even if I didn’t make a single penny doing my soul’s purpose work, would it REALLY make a difference?

This brings me to the point at hand: what is your SOUL telling you?

Strip away the online fakeness that tends to circulate and have us feeling like we aren’t doing enough in our own lives. Strip away those negative voices in our heads telling us we “aren’t good enough”. And yes, even strip away that green ink on paper we call money- a lot of people online pretend to have a lot of money anyway. Note: I said “pretend”.

I was actually feeling sorry for myself yesterday. I was having a bit of a pity party because I PRIDE myself in being honest. I PRIDE myself in being real. And I PRIDE myself in working my ass off in life. But I will swallow my pride and tell you I lost touch with my soul yesterday. My EGO came to the surface. I was whining and complaining to myself, to my business coach, and to my own boyfriend. I was feeling so fucking sorry for myself. And what did it do for me?

Absolutely nothing other than keep me submerged within a negative vortex. I got my much needed reality check today and I realize now that THIS IS ALL part of THE PROCESS. What I didn’t realize until now is that I was meant to go through this downward spiral for almost 24 hours because I AM SHEDDING fearful thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve my soul for its highest happiness in life.

I feel like a snake shedding my dead skin. I feel like I’m slithering out of my old and limiting thoughts and beliefs because I am LETTING GO and RELEASING what is holding me back from a mental and emotional standpoint. How CAN I grow and evolve as a soul if I continue to hold on to what NO LONGER serves me for my soul’s highest purpose? How CAN I do my soul’s purpose work if I, myself, don’t grow and evolve as a human being?

I realize now that I’m completely NORMAL and I’m completely HUMAN. When I listen to what my soul is telling me, it’s telling me that it’s okay to shed these fearful and limiting thoughts, and it’s okay to sometimes have internally downward moments, and that what I was currently thinking and feeling is coming to the surface so that I CAN grow and evolve even MORE SO into my version 2.0 badass superhero that I KNOW (my SOUL KNOWS) I am and beginning to show in life.

This time last year I was super scared to be on audio or video. Now I am frequently doing both, kicking my fears to the curb, and I AM helping thousands of souls all around the world every day. Whether or not I make a cent from it…that’s truly up to the Universe of WHEN and HOW. Yes, I CHOOSE to ALLOW IN monetary wealth, but my soul truly feels if I weren’t even making a cent doing what I’m doing, well fuck it, I’d STILL be doing this anyway because it’s a HELL YES for me within my soul! I’m MEANT to be publishing books to help so many souls in this world, I’m MEANT to be blogging like a badass, I’m MEANT to be mentoring and coaching so many of my soul-based, soulmate souls because this is what I’m CALLED to do in my life.

My question for you is: what is your SOUL telling YOU?

38794506_10111997533703160_7872151582953963520_n

And furthermore, are you FOLLOWING what your soul is craving? These kinds of growing pains are perfectly normal to have. It’s perfectly normal for me to have fears around leveling up and around investing even MORE into my business. I’m recording my audiobook of Don’t Feel Stuck! this weekend. I’m also editing my second book right now. Yes, I still have cyber fright (kind of like stage fright, but in the cyber world) despite the fact that my book has helped thousands of people. What if my second book doesn’t do as well?

No matter what we are all feeling and thinking, we must ALWAYS mentally have a “wake-up” call and ask ourselves: what is our SOUL telling US? Are we following our soul’s calling? Because if we are not, and we are making choices based out of FEAR, we are going to REMAIN feeling STUCK in our lives and we will merely be paralyzed while time continues to tick on and we grow older.

This is what’s truly defeating (staying stuck and stagnant in our lives due to fears). Most of what we fear doesn’t even come “true” anyway, unless we give a lot of power and focus TO IT.

So keep going! You are doing so much better than you realize! And no, I’m not a robot: I’m just like you and I have my “shit” moments as well. It’s a choice in how we CHOOSE to respond to these moments for the long-run. What is our soul telling us?

My soul is saying: keep going, Babe. You’ve got this!

And I KNOW you can keep going and you’ve got this, too. Follow your soul, keep plugging away at your dreams because one day you will look back and say to yourself: thank gosh I didn’t give up! Keep showing the Universe what your soul truly wants! Have your crying fit and pick yourself back up because you ARE a total badass at life. You’ve got this!

What If…

37632184_2145964812316145_4694544956998549504_n

Are you following what your soul is calling you to do EACH DAY?

Why not?

What are your fears that are keeping you feeling stuck in your life?

Why do you have your fears that are keeping you feeling stuck in your life?

What would happen if you were to release your fears for just ONE day?

What COULD happen if you were to release your fears for just ONE day?

What COULD happen if you were to follow your soul’s wants, needs, and cravings for just a few days?

What is the worst-case scenario in releasing ALL of your fears and unleashing your inner badass?

What is the BEST-case scenario in releasing ALL of your fears and unleashing your inner superhero?

Where do you WANT to be and WHO do you WANT to be 3 years from now?

How can you get to this place?

What all is needed in order to get to this place in your life?

What are you ALLOWING yourself to feel regret over 3 years from now?

What CAN you do NOW to help propel yourself forward to the place and stage in your life that you WANT to be and WHO you WANT to be 3 years from now?

And, again, what is the worst that could happen if you go forth and propel yourself?

And again, what is the BEST that could happen if you go forth and propel yourself?

Aren’t you tired of feeling stuck in life?

Aren’t you tired of merely existing in life?

Isn’t your soul CRAVING and ACHING to unleash into the world and SHARE its gifts of FUN, ABUNDANCE, BLESSINGS, and ANYTHING ELSE it TRULY is being called to live and do in the Universe?

Law of attraction states: like attracts like. What are you FOCUSING on the majority of the time each day? What are you FOCUSING on the majority of the time each day in your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions?

It’s time to unleash your inner badass and superhero!

It’s time to LIVE life by your OWN reign!

It’s time to be, allow in, and start Manifesting Your Soul’s New Reality! It’s time to be, allow in, and start gaining an EMPOWERING EDGE in the Law of Attraction!

I did it…and if I can do it, the most stubborn person I know, anyone can SHIFT and start living by their soul’s TRUEST calling!

You’ve got this!

Carpe Diem!

Calling It ALL In!

Everything You Want is ready for you when you surrender to the Universe

Hey Sensational Soul!

When you wake up each morning, what are your habitual thoughts? Be honest with yourself, now. What are your typical, habitual thoughts while brushing your teeth and turning on the coffee machine? If you’ve answered to yourself something along the lines of producing limiting and scarcity thoughts, it’s okay! We are going to change this starting NOW!

Take a Post-It Note or An Index Card and Write On It: Positive Affirmations!

Set it next to your alarm clock on your nightstand. Each morning when you wake up you are training your brain to start thinking and BEING in a positive state. While you are getting ready in the morning literally start stating positive affirmations, or turn on a YouTube video of a motivational speaker, so that when you are finished getting ready you have set your intentions for your day!

And…you guessed it…every evening when you are climbing into bed, your note is there to remind you to state your positive affirmations and go over the highlights of your day before you fall asleep. Think and state to yourself some of your favorite moments in your day. Mesh them with your positive affirmations when you talk to yourself.

Practice Makes For the Progression & Progression Makes For the Manifestation

You want to train your mindset and routine, consistency, and practice makes for the progression…and progression brings the manifestation! In addition, when you mesh your affirmations with your favorite moments of your day or even your favorite moments of the week (you can do this in the morning or at night), your brain is accepting what IS with what you ARE calling into your physical realm. So call it all in, call in anything and everything your soul craves because you ARE worthy of it!

Set an alarm in your phone to go off 3 or 4 times per day so that you can mentally continue training your mindset with positive affirmations- the calling INTO your physical realm. Train your brain, train your mindset, and train yourself to start listening to what your SOUL is calling into your life.

The Material Will Follow

When you live by your soul’s purpose, your true meaning for your life, the Universe is responding favorably! Yes, the material items are wonderful to have, but what I’m talking about is your soul’s TRUEST happiness. The material items will follow when you live by your soul’s truest PURPOSE.

And SURRENDER to the Universe’s timing and its “how” because it truly knows what makes your soul utterly happy! Don’t worry about the “when”, just relax and have FUN with your life, your journey is supposed to be happy and FUN. So start training your mindset to focus on the POSITIVE in life!

You’ve totally got this!

Carpe Diem!

I Am A Recovering Perfectionist

IMG_20180711_130536_949

As I half-sit, half-lay in bed on a Sunday afternoon with my puppy next to me and my laptop sitting on my lap, I am watching “The History of the Eagles Part I” on Netflix and reflecting on how so many musicians (not just the Eagles) were a bit of perfectionists while up and coming. As humans we tend to focus on other people’s “success” as IS, but forgetting the fact that we all go through ups and downs along the way. What is “success” anyway?

Why are we so obsessed with being perfect IN ORDER TO BE successful?

I started thinking about my own purpose on this planet and how I am a recovering perfectionist, but it still plagues me as I keep creating my content in leaving marks in the world. In fact, as I am writing this right now I keep deleting my words and altering them, or I just give up in frustration, retype them, and move on to the next sentence. I did say I am a recovering perfectionist.

How did I become such a perfectionist? It started after a traumatic moment in my younger life. When I was a kid, my room was such a MESS all the time. I remember my mom constantly telling me, “go clean your room!” However, once I had reached my teenage years, I went through some mental and emotional trauma, and it was like I snapped into a completely different person. From that point on, though I did not realize it at the time, I was trying to control my surroundings by having a very tidy and organized room. I was always one to make A’s in school, but my urge to be perfect in the sense of receiving grades of 100 became stronger. I hated change. I thought change was a loss of control, so I tried everything to keep things from changing. Life won.

I had a mental breakdown one year while in college.

From that point forward I knew I had to make some self-changes in order to survive in this world. While it wasn’t my utter low-point in life (that came later on at 26 years old when I had my FULL revelation), it was definitely eye-opening for me. I realized I was piling way too much onto my “plate”. I was trying SO HARD to look perfect, to BE perfect, and I had lost control. I had lost ALL control of my “perfect” life. I had lost ALL control of myself.

We all have unique gifts to express

Each and every one of us has unique gifts in this world. There is not a single person on this planet filled with over 7 billion people that doesn’t have a purpose, a gift, a message to convey and to completely OWN while on this journey. We are so addicted to struggling, to hustling, to leaving our footprints in perfection before we depart from this earth. We are so consumed by looking and being perfect that we FORGET how to truly LIVE. We forget how to truly think and FEEL. We forget how to truly BE one with our soul and one with the Universe.

Success can be just as disconcerting and frightening as failure- Don Henley

Who cares about being perfect, attempting to be perfect, and pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion by thinking we have something to “prove” to this world and to ourselves. This is NOT life. This is NOT being in alignment. This is NOT freedom. This is NOT living by our soul’s truest purpose. How can we share our gifts to the world when we obsess over being so perfect? Perfection IS imperfect because it’s not real, it’s not true to who we are, and it’s not a genuine connection to our soul’s purpose. It’s perfectly fulfilling to be full of imperfections! Embrace it, live it, OWN IT.

So as we continue on our soulful journey that we call “life”, it’s super important to remain in what the Eagles refer to as a “peaceful, easy, feeling” and to “take it easy” along the way. Life is too short to obsess over being perfect, for we only have today and we are not promised tomorrow.

Besides, being perfekt is NO fun! 🙂

Carpe Diem!

PS- My published book, Don’t Feel Stuck! is now available on Amazon via paperback and Kindle. Go buy it, go through it in joy, and OWN your unique gifts because you are a total BADASS at life. Cheers!

A Self-Reflection: Is It A “Should”?

0205780554435370d8ab73a29c8da92f

Hey Sensational Soul!

I hope you’re having a great weekend so far and that you are doing things that feel GOOD to your soul. I am enjoying my time here at home and creating more powerful Mastering Your Mindset content to help YOU shift from a scarcity mindset into a more FUN, ABUNDANT, and FREEING mindset.

I want to send you a quick, soul-based reminder:

If it doesn’t feel like a HELL YES, then please do NOT do it. You want to take INSPIRED actions when propelling yourself closer to your manifestations. You want to practice positive thoughts when doing your mindset work. You want to practice positive feelings when doing your mindset work. And you want to practice taking inspired actions that ARE in alignment with what you are manifesting.

Self-Reflection Questions

Is it a “should”?

Is it mainly because it’s “safe”?

Is it going to move you CLOSER to you desired outcome in the long-run?

Are you mainly manifesting it as a “short-term” outcome?

While doing your Mastering Your Mindset journaling this weekend, write out, “I am manifesting…(insert your manifestation)” at the top of the page. Then answer the above questions and be real HONEST and RAW with your mindset journaling.

Again, if it’s not a HELL YES, then please do not move forward in manifesting it because it will not manifest very easily at all. The Universe WANTS you to feel happy, have fun, feel free, and feel GOOD in your life!

The Universe KNOWS what your soul truly wants and it’s ready and willing to help you, FOR you. All you have to do is align to it through soul-based positive thoughts, soul-based positive feelings, and soul-based inspired actions.

Don’t be afraid, fear is a liar.

You’ve got this!

Carpe Diem!

Someone Saved My Life Tonight

IMG_20171230_191841_151This blog post may not be the best article you read, nor may it be one that will stay within your memory after today; but, I must be candid for a few minutes.

Depression is a serious disease. I should know because without my medication I would be in it all over again. My entire business is around helping other souls with their mindset and their mindset beliefs. My purpose and message to the Universe is to help others manifest whatever it is they truly desire into their lives. My focus and passion is to help any and every soul I can help to live in true, authentic happiness. And today I sort of feel like a fraud after the news of Anthony Bourdain. He was a rare gem in this world, not one to shy away from being 100% honest, even if it made you cringe a little sometimes. I feel defeated in an odd way because I can understand how he must have been feeling. Here I am telling souls day after day that they can successfully shift their mindset, and maybe people who follow me never even knew what I was going through, myself.

 

However, I am proof that you CAN get better. 9 years ago I tried to take my own life. I remember that night so clearly. I remember bawling in the fetal position on the bathroom floor of my apartment for hours. I remember my inner demons telling me it “can’t get better”. I remember taking a massive amount of prescription pills and trying to slit my wrists to the music of Elton John’s “Someone Saved My Life Tonight”. Little did I know that song was going to play a more pivotal role leading to my own survival.

 

I was in a really bad relationship with a narcissist for about 2 years. I am an empath, meaning I absorb a lot of people’s energies around me. No matter how hard I try to surround myself with a clear, protective bubble, people’s energies can really soak into me. I remember how my attempt at suicide didn’t work, I felt awful the next day. I was so far down the depression hole at the time that I didn’t feel awful out of guilt- no way. I was so far “gone”. I felt awful because the night before I had sent my “goodbye” emails and there I was still (undeservingly ) breathing the next day. I remember the narcissist telling me, “you only did this to get attention”, when in actuality I did it because I was trying to escape from him, from life, from myself.

 

So why didn’t it work 9 years ago when I attempted? I realized a few months later everything really does happen for a reason. I truly believe I had to hit “rock bottom” in order to understand what I was actually going through at 26 years old. At the time, when I was in my relationship with the narcissist, I didn’t even know what a “narcissist” was until after I attempted to end it all and shortly after decided to go to cognitive therapy. If I had known that my inner demons were so powerfully volatile, and that there IS actually a light at the end of the tunnel, I may not have tried to so hard to say “goodbye” on that strange night. If I had known and understood the complexities of the brain and outside influences (such as toxic relationships with a narcissist), I may not have had such a strong urge to end it all.

I truly believe what I went through prepared me for what I am now doing 9 years later at 35 years old: teaching other souls in this world to KEEP GOING. Everything stems from our mindset. The mind can be so restless, but it doesn’t have to control you. And while depression feels 1000% real within ourselves, there truly IS another direction we can start mentally moving towards in order to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Leaving our earth is not the ONLY option. It’s not easy, but it’s definitely doable.

If you or anyone you know is suffering from depression, I strongly urge going to cognitive therapy. This type of therapy is actually what saved my life the next night, and every night since then until I was fully healed. While I do not hold a PhD in psychology, I do what I can as a mentor to help people shift their mindset to the best of their abilities. It is time to be OPEN and HONEST about depression and mental illness. There is NOTHING wrong with having a mental illness. And it does NOT have to control you and your life. You CAN live in authentic happiness with the proper guidance and support system surrounding you. And it can start today, right now.

 

Do not give up. Keep going. You are NOT alone. It is perfectly OKAY to seek help. And it is perfectly OKAY to be honest and REAL in this world. Each and every single one of us is a faceted gem that help to shape this world we live in. And you are such a rarity in this Universe. You ARE needed here, with us.

 

Warmest Love,

Journal Girl Jaclyn
