9 Ways to Show Your True Colors

If you have read the first blog of the year, then you know there’s a surge of confidence gracing my words, pages and aesthetic. However, if you are just seeing this blog; please reference my Word of the Year post.

I adore the song True Colors by Cindy Lauper.  There is so much that resonates.  “… don’t be afraid …to show them Your true colors. True colors are beautiful. Like a rainbow.”  

We all have darkness that nests within. The small ego voice that says, “Don’t show them who you are.”

Better yet, do not listen to the ego; rise up & show you as the beautiful rainbow of chakra colors and aura that you are.

Courage 

Stand by Commitment Courageous Magical Blessings ConfidenceCourage is showing others who you are.  This is not the mask that is placed upon you and/or who you may believe that you are; rather this is who you are when you strip away the facades and stand with the Divine part of you.

Not everyone will find you to be their cup of tea, and that is just fine. Those who resonate with you, will also vibe with you.

Above all please stop asking permission to be you.

9 ways to Sprinkle a Dash of Boldness

  • Know your boundaries. Self care is a mega form of boundaries
  • Self Care is essential. Make time to do things that love you up!
  • Mentally allow yourself to change; ebb and flow like the seasons. Life will not remain constant and let yourself grow by learning, experiencing and living.
  • Physically love you up with nourishing foods, work out and rest with sleep and/or  just lazy days.
  • Emotionally allow yourself to feel. Open the flow and allow you to feel your feelings on a deep level. Do not dismiss them; invite them in and explore why you have these feelings and gently release this as lessons that can help you be happy, successful and amazing.
  • Spiritually connect with your version of Spirit. Have a nice conversation
  • Meditate; this does not have to be strict. This could be a 5 min. tea break. Sit and let your mind wander.
  • Be mindful of what you say to yourself. Speak lovingly, gently and softly to you.
  • Look at what you are thinking about others. Is this a way for you to focus on them, rather than looking at what you need and want.

Rise up and be you! There is no one like you; you are destined to be you, so why no just do it.

True norht Compasss Love Heart Grateful Gratitude Magical BLessings

Don’t Hold Back Your Heart Let it Point North!

A grateful heart is a happy heart. You do, desire a happy heart, right…

With that being said, happiness is an inside job. No one can make you happy. You can feel the emotional outpouring of a happy feeling and exude joy; yes, but only you can bring this forth.

However, so many say do this, don’t do that. Oh hell, no we won’t go down that path.

I AIN’T GOT TIME 

Compass, Heart, Truth North. Magical Blessings, So, I am supposed to be happy. Sure, Right and OMG, not another dumb person telling me what I should or shouldn’t do.

Heck, what do I do with this anxious, dread and worry?

Aww, this is where it can get tricky, and yet it doesn’t  have to. Have you ever heard the idea about working smarter not harder?  I don’t know about you, but I like things easy, peasy and to be done with it. I ain’t got time for all that drama and nonsense.

ANXIETY, WORRY DOUBT BOREDOM

Those are killer of dreams. These are keeper of cells (When Egos Feed); think prison cell.

You do not deserve to stay frozen unable to move. Break free and get a movin.

TREAT YOUR HEART LIKE A COMPASS

Place your hands over your heart. Do you feel that? That is your heart beat. It keeps ticking, so you keep living.

Yet, are you loving?

Are you loving life?

Are you loving you?

It is too easy to get swept up in life’s drama or distracted from that which you love. Yes, this includes you, too.

You my dear heart are your greatest love. Treat your heart like it is the most precious love of all. Compass magical blessings true north heart love selfYou are your most precious love. Be like Dolly Parton and declare “I Will Always Love You.”  Many know this song via Whitney Houston and she did an amazing job, but the original song writer is dear ole Dolly.

Now, let’s get in touch with your heart and point this true north.  Many mystics believe that your heart is your true north. When you align with your heart, you align fully with Spirit/Divine/whomever you speak with.

So how do you do this? Simple, let go of anything that is stopping you. Ready, set, let it go…let it flow. Once you tap into your true Divine heart is when life aligns to its greatest source: Your Heart.

HA, EASY PEASY

Natasha, I’ve tried everything from self-loathing to self-harm, pills, alchie and ya. Okay, I am not here to criticize nor judge you! Nope, I am not. However, I can help guide you to your true north. Creative Self Expression is a great way to connect with you, your heart and soul. Paint, Write, Mediation and much more can help bring out what is locked behind bars.

Also, forget perfect. That is such a lie!  It will hurt ya every time. Let go of the perfect idea and allow yourself to get messy. Go for that meditative hike, paint with your fingers, dig in the dirt and so much more.

p.s. did ya notice that much of this does not include electronics? Those can distract you from hearing your heart. Put ’em down and get outdoors; even if it is for 5 mins.

HOLDER OF DREAMS

Your heart is the keeper of your dreams. When you have a grateful heart is when your inner happy peace exudes and overflows. Life seems simpler, easier; it is almost by magic that everything just syncs. Easy Peasy Breezy!

Therefore, getting to your true north is via your heart. This is when head, heart, and spirit triangulate in the perfect formation. You are in alignment with your truth. You’ve let go of things in your way, and things manifest and flow to you.

MAGIC WAND

fairy godmother magic wan magical blessingsSo, my dear heart where is your magic wand. Aww, it is in your heart; you are the soul keeper of your heart; this is your inner map to Spiritual Growth. This is your map to deep inner peace, joy, and harmony.  Let it go, and let it flow.

Bippty, boppity boo…now it’s up to you!

Go forth dear heart and live the life of your dreams…

Celebrating Differences Mean Girls Girl Shunning Feminine Power Goddess Strength Resilience Teen Tween Women woman

Are you Shunning the Girl Within Part 1

Green vine Flower Butterfly SmallGirl Shunning

Girl shunning, mean girls whatever you call it, this is wrong!  I have written about this before as it was happening to me.  More importantly, as a teacher I must face what is a societal norm.  Some will state that is it not present.  That is the lie that is told.

It runs prevalent with our youth and sadly, it all begins with you.  Do you open your arms up to another’s difference or do you whisper and gossip away.

The saddest factor is speaking to young ladies, and hearing why the attempted to end their life or found solace in an addiction.  It is happening earlier and earlier to our girls and our girls do not deserve to be mistreated!

Educational Blunders

Celebrating Differences Mean Girls Girl Shunning Feminine Power Goddess Strength Resilience Teen Tween Women womanAs an educator, I have traditionally taught at-risk youth and/or those with disabilities. In fact, I just had a conversation with a concerned parent about such the subject.  Her response, “When we realized this was happening, we did everything in our power with the schools, and yet, this is not the importance; the state standards are and my daughter has been saddened ever since.  I miss my happy girl.”

Trust me when I say, I have had girl drama erupt in my classroom.  One year I had 16 students; 14 girls and 2 boys- ages 13-14.  We all fine and dandy and then wham out of no where, girls are swinging and we are off to the races.

The Real Raw Truth

Let me be real!  Let me be Raw!  Are you raising a mean girl.  Or are you in fact a mean girl that is an adult teaching, showing the way?

This is a learned behavior and our girls are learning it somewhere.  So, ladies let’s take responsibility and teach them empathy and compassion. A good way to begin the conversation is with my beginner’s guidebook: Awakening the Feminine Goddess.

Now this is not to criticize nor judge; my intentions are to calm the storm.  To show that we can honor one another’s differences.  Let’s  help our young ladies honor themselves and others.

5 Ways to be Standing Tall 

First of all, it begins with her female role model.  What is influencing your young lady?  There was a very valid reason that I chose to disallow violent video games, shows and movies when my children were younger.  The impression that they would absorb is much more important, than the factor that they did not watch what everyone else was.  In fact, I used to have kids come to my house, because my house had “rules and expectations.” If you broke them, you had consequences to pay.

Now with that being said here are 5 ways to stand tall.

Celebrating Your Inner Girl Power Magical Blessings Feminine Goddess

Let’s show Our Goddess’ the Way & raise them with High Self-Esteem

1,  Be authentic.  Be you even if that means standing out of the crowd.  Prime example, is a student I had who wanted to wear black lipstick.  She was all excited to show this to me; I gave her permission ( of course, with her parents permission); she exited the bathroom and that is when all heck broke lose.  At that moment, other female students wanted to chastise her choices.  It was the perfect teaching opportunity of helping her to see her beautiful expression of who she truly is.

2. Speak with your daughter; keep the conversation flowing.  I do not know how many times a parent has said to me, “How’d you get her to tell you that?” Even though your tween/teen is pulling away towards independence, they are still impressionable and need support.

3. Honor and Respect your young ladies independence.  It is important that she feel she has the ability to express who she is.  This goes back to being authentic and allowing her true self to shine through.  My very conservative parents were blessed with a headstrong, independent, intelligent creative innovator.  I was know to find loop holes in the school dress code, and began a revolution to wear white after labor day.  Young parents may not know this, but gasp it was against the etiquette rules to wear white after labor day and here I am not only wearing white,  I usually had some stain from jumping in mud puddles. Shock, gasp, the horror of it all. Not, it is best to let your girl be her; let her grow and expand.

4. Support her endeavors.  It should not be, because I said so.  I am part of that generation and yep, that does not go over too well.  If she wishes to go out for wrestling then by golly go to every match and cheer her on.  Or if she wishes to be a cheerleader, then again, support her by showing up to her events.

5. No judgement! Perfect example, happens to be a boy in a commercial, but he repeats a very judgmental statement that he overheard his mom say about his aunt.  Teens are listening and watching even, if you do not believe that they are.  I had a conversation with a student one time about how can she respect her mom, when her mom is a gossip.

That takes us to lead by example.  Our girls are depending on us to guide, show and teach them the way.  It all begins with us.  Are we perfect. Nope!  Will we make mistakes? Oh, yes and that is okay.  Do we get an A for effort, yes, yes we do.  We just cannot give up!

Let’s show our ladies that it is okay to be their true selves and that do not have to pretend to be someone else.  Be glad that we are all different, because if we were all the same that would be one boring world.

Let’s embrace your differences and honor your beauty.

Let’s Raise Girls with Strong Self-Esteem! 

 

Yes! Natasha, I would love for my daughter to be herself!
