Friday 5

Bring Intention into your weekend- Friday 5


5 ways to bring intention into your weekend
1) Determine how you would like to feel.
2) Make a mini list of what you want/need to do this weekend. (*hint, check in with your word of how you want to feel. Do these actions bring you closer or further to it)
3) Plan your week ahead, Personally I like to do this Sunday evening. It helps me approach my week with far more intention than if I just react to everything that comes up.
4) Spend at least a little time doing something that nourishes you. Go outside, read, take a bath, cook/order a yummy meal etc..
5) Check in how often you are checking out with your phone or other device/screen. It’s not about beating yourself up. It’s about noticing how often you do this by default. The more we check in about these things the more intentional you become when you do pick up your device or remote.

Tuesday Truths

When I Release…- Tuesday Truths(from the archives)

Hey  Beautiful Souls,

It’s easy for us to hang onto things, people, obligations etc. that no longer serve us (or never did) and when we do this we end up unintentionally blocking what is ours to do, create, learn, have etc. Because our lives, spaces, minds are full with “things” that are not aligned with our truths, purposes, with who we want to be and how we want to show up.

What is one tiny thing (or a big one if you feel called to that) that you can release that really isn’t serving you? This can be physical or mental.

Empowered, Holistic Living, Inspired Words, Soul Musings

And she knew…


Hello Beautiful You!

This is in a nutshell (or square image!) how I am feeling about this year and my dreams.

So often we (read, I) have let the head win over the tuggings of the soul. After a while, it gets “easy” to just keep going that direction. We pretend that those tuggings are no big deal or we will listen another time, that they aren’t practical (umm they aren’t necessarily supposed to be!)

Those tuggings come in various ways, including cravings, words, and themes coming up again and again,  they show up as joy (sometimes mixed with fear!) They can show up in a feeling that we can’t quite name, an image in a magazine or a word, song or so many other ways. You likely know them but are so used to saying you can’t, don’t know how, you are scared.

What if you listened to those tuggings just a little closer, what if you allowed tiny bits of them in and some more and so on…

You know what it’s time for, you know your Soul is ready to support you, to guide you with everything she’s got. It’s ok that your head isn’t ready, just allow yourself to show up for your Soul even just a little.

Mindful Moment Monday.., Stumbling towards Mindfulness

Scents.. Mindful Moment Monday


Hey Lovely Souls..

Today, this week I encourage you to notice scents, smells..

Notice what different scents around you are, make a mental, digital or paper note about the various ones you smell throughout the day.

Notice if any of them trigger anything for you, make you feel a certain way. (“Good” and “Bad” scents.. )

Empowered, Inspired, Living with Purpose, Stumbling towards Mindfulness

Check in with yourself- Stumbling towards mindfulness


Monday moment of mindfulness; Stumbling towards mindfulness..

Heya Beautiful Souls!

I know the word mindfulness is “thrown” around a lot these days. But to put it simply it’s really about paying attention, awareness.  Don’t get me wrong, I spend (especially these days) a lot of my time more distracted than I would like or find myself in react instead of respond mode. But I do want to be more mindful in a lot of areas of my life. I am inching and stumbling towards it.. one moment at a time!

So let’s take a moment for mindfulness, how about right now?

Notice: Where are your shoulders? ( I know this sounds like a really strange question. But for me I find that if I don’t pay attention then my shoulders will end up by my ears unintentionally!  If that’s where yours are. Relax them. )

Now take a deep breath in through your nose, out through your mouth.

Beautiful.. see that didn’t take long and can be a great way to check in with yourself throughout the day.

Friday 5

5 words/Phrases to watch out for in your self-talk-Friday 5


5 words/Phrases  to watch out for in your self-talk

Hey Inspiring Souls! Our self-talk is powerful and we so often are unconscious to what we say to ourselves and about ourselves.

I encourage you to start really listening to yourself. Is your talk empowering, truthful or is it disempowering and fearful?

Here are 5 words to watch out for.

1)      Should, I know sometimes this word just fits in when another one doesn’t.. however it is so often full of much more than just 6 letters.. this can be a sneaky one too as often the -should can be unspoken but is felt.

2)      I can’t.. (do it, afford it, figure it out… )

3)      I don’t know (sometimes this is a totally legit phrase other times for many of us it can become the space filler for truths we are not ready to speak to ourselves or others.)

4)      What’s the matter with me.. When we feel we do things wrong or have made a bad choice this phrase can often pop out of our mouths. Where in this did I disconnect or lose my power instead of what’s the matter with me.

5)      I am such an (idiot, horrible person and so on) though if your “I am such an” ends with things like amazing person, real go getter and uplifting and empowering phrases by all means keep it! But for a majority of us that is much more rare than the disempowering words to end it with.

Really these are just a start, however these are I believe to be some of the most often used words and phrases that we use to ourselves and speak about ourselves.

I encourage you to start to listen, simply listen and notice. How does it feel in your body when you speak this way to and about yourself?

Deep breath, you’ve got this

Empowered, Empowerment Prompt

Look it up- Empowerment Prompt


Empowerment Prompt:

Hey Empowered Souls!

This week our Empowerment Prompt is one I have embraced more and more lately.

Look it up, Learn it,

Seeking knowledge, learning is a great way to feel empowered.

How often do we put aside the things we want to learn even tiny ones like a word, meaning, symbol..  We tell ourselves it’s not that important right now, we don’t have time, it’s too complicated and so on..

It doesn’t even matter what it’s about.. it can be anywhere from the meaning of a feather to learning about a layer of finance you don’t know.

What are you going to look up, learn today?
