Self-Care is Authentically Loving You

There is much a breast about what authenticity means. In my previous article, How to be Authentic, we explore and discover ways to tap into your authenticity; but, also allowing yourself to be the best that you can be at any given moment.

You’re amazing!

You’re truly unique. Dear Heart- you’re one of a kind.

Your life is not a sifi/horror channel recreation. You’re pure perfection.

Self-Care is Loving You

Self-care is authentically loving you.

It’s a way to say that you’re enough. That you’re valuable, and worth taking care of. This doesn’t have to be grandiose. It’s the moment by moment in your life; where you’re taking care of yourself before helping anyone.

I get it once upon a time,  I found myself feeling less than thereof, and creating a monstrosity by taking care of everyone else. Thinking this was the best thing in the world, and that  I was the greatest in the world for doing so. Yet, there would be moments of irritation, frustration and varied darkness of regret. I was exhausted by making sure that everyone else was fulfilled, and I didn’t fill my own emotional cup.


Unchain Yourself

When this was happening,  I also wasn’t able to tap into my true authentic inner being. There were  moments in time that I felt like a gigantic fraud. Here I am competing with pretty much no one, but my own self about how awesome and wonderful I am, and yet my own needs were unmet. I was writing my own satire tragedy.

After years of neglect and absolute exhaustion my dear sweet soul sounded me with her vibrancy. It was as if a bell sounded; my heart and soul knowing how to lead me out of this darkness. Don’t fret, if you’ve found yourself in this manner. There’s a way to release and let go of the nonsense, and start over. You get as many chances as you need. I’m pretty sure my angels look like they were drug through the mud sparkes of light; but, we made it, and I’m filling my own well, and thrilled to enjoy the excitement that occurs with authentic self-caring love.

Come join us.

I created: Self-Love Magic

When  I was taking better care of myself is when I discovered my true authentic magical powers, and I really want you to be able to tap into your wisdom and bring forth your beautiful authentic self.  It’s incredible, to love and care for yourself first and foremost. After a bit, you’ll be able to transfer your caring, love to others, but not disclude yourself. Gone are the days of feeling desolate, less than there are of, irritated, exhausted and so much more.


Authentic Self Care:

Self Care = taking care of you

Authentic =  your true inner being

Authentic Self Care =  taking care of your true inner being

  1. Know your value- Do you believe that you’re enough?
  2. Let’s practice self-talk- Start the day on a positive. Write in a journal 3 things that you are grateful about. In fact, grateful hearts are manifestation magnets. The more grateful the easier it is to attract what you want.
  3. Profess your potential and success (big or small)- Make bold declarations: Yes, I am awesome!  I made coffee like a boss! Girl you rocked making dinner!
  4. Use Positive Affirmations- Begin by finding positive affirmations that you like. Write it on post it notes, and place this in locations you will see throughout the day.
  5. Make Meaningful Relationships-Do you have people who add and deposit their light and love to you? Or do you have those who make frequent withdrawals and leave you without hope or exhausted? It’s hard, but sometimes we need to let go of those who are not on our side. It may feel scary, but in the long run, it’ll help bring those who are celebrating and supporting you as you celebrate and support them.
  6. Self-care is real– Go for that walk in nature, take a nice hot bath, take a nap, drink water, enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea, enjoy that piece of dark chocolate, eat healthy, the list goes on and on. Your self-care is not like others as you are not like others. It is nice to have a general idea; and yet, I encourage you to explore and discover what’s important to you and your self-care.

It’s go time: Putting this into Practice:

You’ve read the article; you’ve agreed to do this for yourself. Now, it’s showtime. It’s time to implement this into your everyday life.

Be sure to practice often; multiple times a day. Soon it will seem second nature. In the final stages it will feel natural and a part of your true authentic inner being.

Bravo!!  

Celebrating You!!

Oodles of Love,

How to be Authentic

Have you heard the whispers in the air, the lull of the moon, the dance of the waves. Your authentic self calls to you, please come to me, let me be me.

One thing is for sure, your soul will not allow you to hide, procrastinate nor ignore. The energy vibes are calling, whispering, saying your truth and the more that you try to ignore or hide, the stronger the vibes may become.

It’s as if you soul is standing up and saying enough; enough with your shenanghans.  I am here in the now; now follow me.

Authentic Magical Wellness 17 Believe in me True me

The old 3D adage of fake it until you make it, no longer rings true. It is an old pattern and belief established in the third dimension; the awakened consciousness no longer tolerates this type of shenanghans.

In fact this may create more dissidence than helpfulness. Your inner peace will sound like a siren screaming it’s head off- “You fraud, that’s false.” Please note that your authentic voice is more powerful than a meek or false voice. The 7D toll of the bell, rings of love, of truth, of light. It requires for you to let go of your mask(s), and stand in your true, authentic power.

The haters are gonna hate

There will be those who disagree. Okay, why do they have more power over you, than you do of yourself? Use your authentic voice, show the world who you really are, and the world will answer your call, and step up to form a clearer path as to how you will go about your soul’s blueprint and why you are here.

Now, this is not to say, that you cannot insist on “your way” aka the idea of “free will.” I am here to gently emphasize that this is a 3 year in numerology, where your inner-most heartfelt desires are set to take form.   Get ready to open your wings & FLY or flop.


Ultimately the choice is up to you. No one is in your way, but you.

Authentic Ways For You to Show up

Here are a few ways to show up in an authentic manner, which can calm the storm of the lesson if you allow. 

Ways to be authentic:

  1. Is this a feeling, emotion or thought? 
  2. Ask yourself what am I feeling? Sad, mad, happy, anxious, calm and more. Spend time with the feeling; sit with it; do not move on it. Take 3 deep breaths. Now how do you feel?
  3. Allow yourself to feel this emotion.  Do not ignore it, this will tighten its grip- Breathe in and out as the emotion happens. Rest for a moment, reflect on what this is teaching you. Inhale and then exhale by releasing the emotion and re-setting yourself. Give yourself space to flow through the emotion.
  4. Is the thought useful, benefical or is it an old story that wants attention? Inhale the thought, do nothing else and then exhale letting it go. Don’t hold onto it. Breath it out and ask the angels/spirit to take it from here.
  5. Where did the feeling, emotion or thought originate from? Pay careful attention to the signs that your emotional body is sending to your physical body (i.e.  is your chest tight- then breath into your heart center and allow the emotion to flow in and out of you-almost like an ocean wave). Disease holds onto the body and the origination is a feeling, emotion or thought: DIS-EASE.
  6. Is this actually a belief?  What is the illusion that you are trying to convince yourself as your truth?
  7. Reiki and Distance Healing is a great way to help you to rest, reflect and re-set.

The World Needs You to Dance With Yourself

This is from a metaphoric stance; and, yet it is key to be you. There is no one like you. You are perfect just as you are, and the world needs you to be you. In the words of Dr. Suess, “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

May you always be blessed by being you!

Oodles of Love,

Natasha

Traverse Inner Terrain Bad Expect Magical Blessings

How Traversing Your Inner Terrene Isn’t as Bad as You Expect

You are your world.

There is nothing that does not affect your energy being.

The world around you may be falling apart, but that does not mean that you have to take on others issues.

We all have issues. No one is exemplified from having issues. So, what do you do about it.

Learning To traverse Your Terrene

Take for example that you are a world. Your human form is a living, thriving metropolis.  Everything  that you do, eat, think and believe affects you. This can be both positive and negative.  You will have bad days; no one can’t tell you that you can’t nor won’t. There are days where it seems like getting out of bed and showering is a major feat. So, by golly celebrate.

Once upon a time during a long-term illness getting out of bed and getting dressed was a major accomplishment. I was over the moon, if I could also run a hairbrush through my easily tangled locks.

Choose your battles

No one knows exactly what you are going through or what you are working on. It is for you to know and work through.  With that being said, it is also not okay to get stuck in a rut and use excuses. We all have things happen to us, things we’ve been through. These bumps help us to grow and to thrive even more powerfully.

Let Go of Expectations

Shit Happens Let it Go Magical Blessings Authentic VoiceLife happens. Shit happens and things can get skewed and then ya wake up one day and say oh hell no. So, let today, be that day. Let go of the contrived notion that you have to be perfect, have all the answers and be on point.

Allow yourself to make mistakes. If it happens; it happens and you’ve learned a valuable lesson. Now take that knowledge and be a powerhouse. Help yourself and by helping you, caring for you, loving you; you are also helping others who may not be able to do so.

Show up in a Tutu 

Aha, caught your attention. What? Why? You do not have to literally show up in a tutu; I love using metaphors.  But, who am I to say that you cannot show up in a tutu if you so choose to do so. Go for it. Color you hair, get that tat, write the book, sing that song, paint that painting. The list goes on and on.

Years ago co-workers breathed a sigh of relief after another unfortunate round of belittlement from admin. A co-worker leaned next to my ear and said, “It’s about time you showed up!”  This sent chills down my spine and something internally clicked and the previous drama was silenced and a viable solution was rendered. Why, because I showed up and offered my wisdom and advice.  Everyone benefited from me gracing my worth and speaking up.

Speak Even if Your Voice Quivers

Go for it. Say it out loud. What is the worst that will happen. Yep, your ego will fill your head with nonsense that may not even occur. So, go for it. Speak up, show up and be fabulous.

  • But, let’s turn this inward.
  • Close your eyes.
  • What is something that is driving you batty about others?
  • Now, turn this to you. Inhale and exhale 3 times.
  • Where is this also showing up in your life?
  • Write this down.
  • Sit with this for a moment and allow your mind to wander.
  • Speak out loud, write this in a journal as if you are having a dialogue with yourself. Most of all get it out in the open. Acknowledging this will not only help you to identify the inner turmoil; but is also lead you to your healing path.

Get raw and real. Do not hold back. Yes, it seems scary to see you behaving like another who annoys you; then again the most important is the ability to heal you! The more raw you are with yourself, the deeper you will explore and find a way to shine the light on it. Spirit will take it from here; however, please give Spirit permission. Due to ego free will, they needs your permission to take it away. Poof, gone; it is no more and you have gained knowledge to traverse your inner terrene.  Use this as much as you need.

Oodles of Love & Magical Blessings, 

Natasha
