The Truth Is Nonsense…Just Listen To Your Soul!

38853674_10112001798366740_4447411843002007552_n

The truth is nonsense! Just listen to your soul…and maybe have some cheesecake. What to do when your day is testing you and you feel the pressure from the others. The Universe loves you and you are STILL manifesting your dreams.

PS: also, you ARE a badass, so go be a badass and carpe diem!

You’ve got this!

Carpe Diem!

No, You’re NOT Crazy, This Is Being Human

annika_strom_5295_1024x768

You’re high vibe. You’re so high vibe because the sun stayed out of your eyes while you drove to and from work today. You’re high vibin’ because it was a quick and easy process to style your hair and make-up this morning before you hit the pedal to the metal.

You’re so high vibe as you sip your coffee/latte as it tastes as smooth as silk to your tongue because it was perfectly crafted on this day. You’re high as fuck because most of your day has been pretty easy breezy, for the most part (minus that annoying coworker who can’t seem to get on the ball- again).

You’re high vibe and life is just going easy as pie.

Then the next day comes.

The alarm went off too soon. The cat won’t stop banging on the blinds while you try to sleep for another 16 minutes. You glance at the clock and you have 23 minutes until you have to be out the door. The barista spills your latte, tack on another 5 minutes to the rush…

The phone won’t stop ringing and the emails keep coming while you try to seek peace at your desk. One after another. The inbox is filling up again.

You sneak out off to lunch, yet a coworker stops you wanting to ask you something when you are 8 feet from the door.

You are gasping for air.

Then you realize this week is “payday” week and you think, “at least I have a silver lining to look forward to in a few days.”

The remaining few days feel like the movie, “Groundhog Day”. Over and over, the same feelings of suffocation and anxiety start seeping more and more into your mindset. You are still spending each day doing your Mastering Your Mindset journaling, you still listen to your motivational speakers each morning, you still state your affirmations over and over again. Why won’t this headache go away? Why is my sister calling me and complaining all of the time? She never listens to me…why are the kids STILL making a mess in the kitchen despite the fact that I have told them repeatedly OVER AND OVER again to “clean up when you are finished.” I need to make a sign to stick on the fridge to remind them…oh shoot, I meant to stop at Walgreens on the way home today to pick up my prescription! GREAT.

Payday comes and you breathe a sigh of relief: finally! You pay all of the bills for the month…WHAT!?? $50 left until next month’s pay????

Panic sets in, the anxiety is overwhelming. Why doesn’t this affirmation shit work for ME? Why am I ALWAYS stuck in life? Why am I ALWAYS FUCKING BROKE!? This will never get better for me, I’m always going to be feeling this way, nothing ever goes right for me. Why is everyone else always sailing along on the journey of life more easily than I am? Why can’t it happen for me, too? What is wrong with me? Something must be wrong with me…why can’t I just seem to GET IT like others do when it comes to manifesting my wants and life goals?

I give up. Fuck it. I don’t give a shit any longer. Law of attraction is bullshit. Life sucks.

Does this AT ALL sound familiar to you?

There’s a fork in the road, what do you CHOOSE to think going forward? How do you CHOOSE to feel going forward? What do you CHOOSE to do going forward? And what is your relationship and connection to all of this with regards to your spirituality?

You get to choose.

And yeah,

Carpe Diem!

Everything Connects Together: Science AND Faith

20180721_135801

I’ve always been a spiritual being. You know, “Pisces” this and “Aquarius” that. As a child my intuition was so strong that I could literally predict the future before it happened. It wasn’t 100% of the time, but it was pretty often. I had mental pictures that would pop into my head and then it literally played out in front me within a few days. When I was a pre-teen I would have dreams at night and they would actually happen in my waking hours the very next day. This happened about 30 or 40 times within a year. It was SO SURREAL. I couldn’t explain it.

Everything Connects Together

Then I went through some real bad emotional and mental trauma. From that point forward I shut down my intuitive soul. I did anything and everything to survive because I was so traumatized by what had happened. My innocence was stolen. My youth was taken from me. I was fast-forwarded into adult stress and worry despite being 3 years away from legally being considered an adult.

Now I understand it all so much better.

While we are quick to claim that the Universe isn’t on our side because we experience something terrible in life, I realize now as an adult that if it wasn’t for the trauma I had experienced I wouldn’t be WHO I AM today. Does this mean I want to go back and re-live it all again? HELL NO! I wish it upon no one. However, I am thankful for the lessons I had learned.

I never want to spend the rest of my life in anger, resentment, cynic, and anything else that keeps me feeling stuck in life.

Everything works together in this Universe. Everything happens FOR you. If it wasn’t for my past trauma, I wouldn’t have realized my soul purpose in this world. If it wasn’t for my past trauma, I wouldn’t have been able to tap into my old-soul wisdom as intricately as I do now in the present. If it wasn’t for my past trauma, I wouldn’t have been able to help THOUSANDS of souls all around this world every single day.

And this right here, right now, IS my purpose, my passion, my true soul’s calling.

I truly feel everything connects TOGETHER:

Science AND faith.

My favorite subject growing up was ALWAYS science. I wanted to be an astronaut or teach science while growing up. And I have always been spiritual; I do believe everything exists for a reason. There is no “right” or “wrong” when it comes to how you CHOOSE to live your life. If it works for you, then it works!

I AM Here To Remind You of Your Power

You get a choice- always. You get to choose how you want to live your life. While life has events and circumstances that ARE out of our control sometimes, try to approach it in a way of curiosity. What is the Universe teaching us? What is the Universe trying to convey to us about ourselves as individuals and as a humanity? What are the reasons and the purpose on a grander scale? And in the long-run?

Everything is temporary, even our own thoughts and feelings. What you focus on gives power to your mindset beliefs. And your mindset beliefs create your physical reality because the neural signals in your brain emit POWERFUL vibrations of matter within the Universe.

The Universe IS responding to you, FOR you.

original

You Get a Choice: React, Or Respond

A reaction is an immediate action to an external stimuli. Reaction is usually SO immediate that there isn’t a processing of evidence before it takes place with regards to a mental state. It’s just so instantaneous that it often has a mental counter-action, almost like the opposite action.

A response, on the other hand, is usually through a processing of evidence beforehand to an external stimuli. A mental response is usually given after one has time to decide on their course of action. It’s a response because it’s a choice of action through mental processing, whether that choice is of supportive or unsupportive action.

Of course, these are my interpretations of these two nouns. You get to CHOOSE how you want to interpret them! Just like you get to CHOOSE how you want to live your life in the present and going forward. You get to CHOOSE how you want to live by your soul’s purpose, or if you want to be in tune with your soul at all. We all have free-will, and this is so powerful because we get to CHOOSE how we want to RESPOND to anything and everything in life.

How do you make your choices when it comes to following your soul’s calling? Are you reacting or responding? Are you following your fears, or are you following your passions? Are you loving yourself and empowering yourself, or are you ignoring your POWERFUL CONNECTION with your soul (thus, the Universe)? Everything works together SIMULTANEOUSLY.

What are you choosing and how are you choosing to think, feel, act and live FOR yourself and FOR your life?

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
