A Sneak Peak Into SHIFTING My Mindset (& Manifesting Abundance)

IMG_20180803_090138_567

Hey Sensational Soul!

Every Friday in my Facebook group, Manifest It!, I give out FREE Mastering Your Mindset activities to help you get CLEAR around what your true soul’s calling and purpose is while on your journey. In addition, these activities help you SHIFT from a lacking mentality into a more abundant and receiving state of FLOW and ALIGNMENT. If you haven’t joined yet, do so because there is A LOT of material in there! It’s basically FREE mentoring, and who doesn’t like free programs?

Here’s a sneak peak of what I gave for this week’s Mastering Your Mindset (BONUS: it’s also the same work I give to myself):

1) Answer this question 5 times: what makes you feel SO GOOD that you just KNOW every time you do it, think it, feel it, you can count on it to have you feeling AMAZED in your soul (you light up)?

2) Answer this question 5 times: with regards to your answers in #1, how often do you do it, think it, and feel it each day? Each week? Why do you do it, think it, and feel it this many times per day/week?

3) Know this: WHATEVER it is you are manifesting, it’s the SAME THING as what it is you answered in #1! That’s right, it’s the SAME THING because it’s the SAME ENERGY (those tiny fast-moving particles all around us and that ARE us)!

Time to Associate

4) Your task for this next week: each time you do, think, and feel in #1, start thinking about your manifestation as if you ALREADY HAVE IT in your physical realm, at the same time you do, think, and feel in #1.

As Always…

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!

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!

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!

I’m just like you:
I spent the majority of my life completely confused about what constitutes a healthy relationship. I spent my teens and my 20’s trying REALLY hard to get people to approve of me, especially my 3 relationships. I even spent my early 30’s trying to attempt approval from the outside.
I spent the majority of my 35 years trying to PLEASE EVERYONE around me. And what did it do for me? Nothing. Well, maybe not nothing. It DID leave me exhausted, irritated, sad, frustrated, confused, feeling unworthy, and completely emotional most of the time. I was walking on eggshells around…well, myself.
I’m just like you, or maybe the past you. Either way, my point is, some people may look at me and think I’m “higher” up on the totem pole of life when they follow me on social media. I hate to sugarcoat things, so let me just be blunt for a moment:
I AM JUST LIKE YOU. PERIOD.
Even though I no longer allow myself to be in toxic relationships that leave me feeling completely worthless and crazy, it doesn’t mean I still don’t have my “moments”. I am human. I am a total badass, yes. But, I am just like you; which means YOU are a total badass as well. And don’t you even deny it because you ARE! Listen to learn more!

I am a total badass, yes. But, I am just like you; which means YOU are a total badass as well. And don’t you even deny it because you ARE!

How Did I Go From There to Here? Note: Transparency Below

So how did I go from trying to commit suicide at 26 from being EXHAUSTED trying to love myself from seeking some fucked up people’s opinions of me, to now being 35 and completely telling anyone and everyone who judges me in a negative way to fuck off?

I’ll Tell You a Secret of Mine:

It’s because I spend every single day working on my mindset. I do NOT go one day without working on my mindset (and I make sure to give myself the self-love I need). As spiritual beings in physical bodies, part of our journey is to continuously grow and evolve. Once you wrap your head around this and understand it, you realize that it’s completely NOT WORTH IT to be such a huge perfectionist all of the time going around trying to please God knows who. SO EXHAUSTING!

I used to be in a vicious self-sabotaging cycle of ALLOWING men to treat me as if I am NOT a one-in-a-7 BILLION, super-badass, heart of a rose quartz, black lace, delicate red-rose, purple royal hippie (yes, I like all of these so I’m using them to describe me- sue me). And then I just got tired. I got tired and I said to me, “enough is enough!” I was SO tired of being in relationships to where I was constantly giving and giving and giving…and giving and giving…I don’t just mean romantic relationships. I do mean EVERY relationship: my 3 romantic relationships, my friendships, my work relationships, my family relationships, etc.

Being a people-pleaser is EXHAUSTING. Now, in the present, when I think about it, I just want to start laughing at people who have the SAME expectations of me. Sorry, but healthy boundaries ARE okay and perfectly, well, healthy. They are needed. It’s time to take your grown ass adult-self and grow the fuck up. Yep. I went there.

No, no one upset me today. Not at all, actually. I just look around and realize how many people are putting their TRUE happiness on the back burner. They are waking up day after day, letting time completely go by, and ALLOWING excuses to rule their lives. Is this you? If so, well, I’m here to say it’s NOT TOO LATE for you. The only time it’s too late for you to turn it all around and start living in TRUE abundance is when your spiritual being leaves your shell behind: yep, when you CROAK! Is this what you want?

I don’t think you do. Look, I know it’s scary making changes in your life. I GET IT. I spent the majority of my life completely terrified of changes and NOT following my soul’s truest wants in this world. Did I make a HUGE leap of change overnight? No. And you don’t have to either. Yes, I have manifested some BIG blessings into my life in a SHORT amount of time; but, it wasn’t because I took on some HUGE leaps. Nope. I just gave up my urge to constantly control my surroundings and my environment: meaning, I gave up PEOPLE-PLEASING because when you people-please it is a self-serving need…the need to be approved and loved…you DO have expectations of others giving you approval in return. And when it doesn’t happen, you keep people-pleasing hoping it WILL happen. Again, HOW EXHAUSTING!

The Heart of The Matter (Not to Quote Don Henley Too Much)

You can come up with all the ways you want to make excuses for why people-pleasing is NOT selfish, but it is. It’s living in victim mentality. It’s allowing others to completely dictate your OWN self-worth. And it’s selfish because you have EXPECTATIONS of an outcome of others approving of you when really no one needs to approve of you AT ALL. The only being that needs to approve of you is YOU. The badass, version 2.0 self, one-in-a-7 billion, eccentric, completely amazing YOU. Yes, YOU!

If a man or woman doesn’t treat you the way you long to be treated, look inward. Bet you didn’t see that one coming. What are you ALLOWING in order for them to treat you this way? If you start respecting yourself and giving yourself the love that YOU ARE WORTHY of giving and receiving to YOURSELF, you’d be surprised at how all of the toxic-takers in this world just fall away. I call them “toxic-takers” because they are takers and if you are a people-pleaser, you are most likely a giver. Everyone is selfish to a degree, each and every one of us. There are people who are takers the majority of the time, and then there are people who are givers the majority of the time. Point is, when you LOVE yourself first and foremost, the takers fall away. They fall away because the Universe is re-arranging things on your soul’s truest path FOR you and your happiness!

I May Be Rambling a Bit, But Just Hear Me Out

I was single for 9 YEARS. Yes, years. I went on about 1-3 dates (I’m totally old-fashioned when it comes to the way most people live their lives these days). I got nicknamed “Born-Again Virgin”…and while nurses proceeded to tell me what was in fact “true” with regards to the anatomy of a female over the course of 9 years…I just laughed it all off. But, inside, I was feeling like something was “wrong” with me because I am SO PICKY and I was single, truly single, for 9 years. I might as well have joined a convent I was SO single! No wonder I love to wear black…

1016

Version 2.0 Self & Freedom

But that day I admitted to myself that I was single because I FEARED being happy was the day of TOTAL FREEDOM for me! TOTAL FREEDOM! I spent 10 months doing my Mastering Your Mindset journaling on a daily basis and I wrote things like this out during my journaling:

My boyfriend is such a wonderful man! We are best friends and we have a very open-style of communication. He is a researcher in science and he’s incredibly intelligent. He is an older man who loves to be at home, but also loves to travel the world. He is European and is sweet, caring, and romantic, loves to read, loves poetry, and is so calm and patient in his personality. He is very optimistic about life and we talk for HOURS. He loves animals, loves the mountains, and he enjoys watching movies at home and/or going to the symphony. We are truly best friends first and foremost and he’s 2000% committed and loyal to me and our relationship. I am SO BLESSED! On the weekends we…

You get the gist of what I’m saying. I spent 10 months doing my mindset journaling on a daily basis between 10 minutes up to an hour journaling out my new reality as IS in the present. I also mixed it up with my current blessings and meshed them together because the Universe truly doesn’t know what is “real” versus what is “not real”. Everything is energy; it’s all about how you INFLUENCE the energy within our Universe.

On the 10th month I met him. He is 99% of what I truly wanted in my boyfriend. Yep. For real. No fucking joke! If someone tries to tell me miracles don’t happen, they really haven’t surrendered to the Universe (and they can get the fuck outta my way because I’m trying to help as many souls who want to SHIFT their mindset, thus manifest SO MUCH into their lives)! It’s been over 7 months since he and I met and things are just GREAT between us. Our relationship is getting better and better. We are truly best friends and I am TRULY blessed.

He is actually BETTER than I could have ever imagined, truthfully. And you want to know WHY he is? It’s because I completely surrendered to the outcome and the process. I quit fighting trying to control my surroundings and the outcome and I ALLOWED him to come into my physical realm, however and whenever. And I took inspired actions to ALLOW myself to be open to it.

An Honest Example:

EHarmony had a $20 3-month special so I signed up for 3 months for $20. What did I have to lose?? $20? Okay, but if I hadn’t given it a shot…I would have never met this amazing inventor who has changed the world of chemistry and science! And he is so giving that he doesn’t even care to be famous, he just wants to help the world as much as he can. His work is very famous, but this is how much the Universe truly delivers in blessings when you SURRENDER to the process and the outcome. He is a GOOD person. He is a GIVING person. And he is my REAL best friend because he gives to me JUST AS MUCH as I give to him.

Own Your Weirdness

Does this mean I’m going to stop being my version 2.0, one-in-a-7 billion, and super-badass, heart of a rose quartz, black lace, and delicate red-rose, purple royal hippie? HELL NO. I love OWNING ME. Why not OWN you, too? Not only did I perform my Mastering Your Mindset journaling on a daily basis, but I figured out a way to identify my fears, release them for the long-run, and I also figured out a way to CALL IN 99% of my life’s dreams INTO my physical realm within LESS than one year. That’s right, I did! And now I am here to HELP YOU because it’s truly what my soul is calling me to do.

When you surrender to the Universe and OWN it, the Universe delivers some MAJOR blessings into your life. So be you. Be 7 billion percent authentic YOU because there is only ONE of you on this planet. And because you ARE worthy of being happy and you ARE worthy of manifesting ALL of your soul’s dreams. And it IS happening FOR you! Have faith. Trust the process. KEEP GOING in the direction of your manifestations by taking inspired actions. Don’t be afraid, you ARE manifesting all of your dreams! TRUST and SURRENDER. Love yourself, never compromise. Ever. Never, ever again. Your soul will thank you.

Is your version 2.0 ready TO LIVE IN FREEDOM yet!?

Tomorrow is not promised to you, so live for today. You’ve got this!

Carpe Diem!
