Action Cures Fear

Fear is a bitch. It hangs out in the back of your mind making up Fake News that causes you to doubt yourself, to imagine the worst, and hold yourself back from accomplishing epic shit.

It never goes away, it just takes on different voices.

Acknowledge the fear, thank it for worrying about you, and move forward anyway.

Acting despite the fear lessens and weakens the fear over time.

You eventually see that the fear is unsubstantiated. Because on the other side of action you find none of the terrible things that you imagined, only awesomeness.

You have to go where you haven’t been to discover anything new.

Find your tribe.

The importance of the female tribe – you’ve been feeling it too, right?

During this rising, this continued awakening, it is crucial that we lift each other up. That we blast each other with love.

Tell your closest women how amazing they are and what you love about them.

Tell her how you see her.

And then remember that your closest women see all that glowing energy in YOU, too, so that you remember to love yourSELF as much as they do <3

How to be a Mover in the Movement

LADIES.

What an incredible weekend this was! Over a million marchers for women, all over the world.

The largest peaceful protest in HISTORY. That shit’s amazing.

The pendulum is swinging back. The time has come for women to take the reigns once again, for the sake of the earth and humanity.

Not to exclude men, but the patriarchy hasn’t exactly gotten us into a good state. The women of ages past are looking at this current earth wondering why we’ve allowed our power to be suppressed for so long.

No longer.

It is time for us to step forward. To step into ourselves. Into our higher Selves.

To be a part of MOVING the movement.

To share our voices, and our truths.

Because the greatest thing you can do for humanity is to find your truth and share it.

To live as the best version of yourself.

To maximize your potential.

I believe that to reach maximum potential you have to find your…Thing.

The Thing that makes you come alive.

Your Thing is something you’ve always known.

Something that’s been there since the beginning.

Something that you’ve never been able to ignore.

Something you’re bound to.

bound : \’bau’nd\ : adj. : inseparably connected with

Once we figure out that the Thing is the Thing…well, pursuing it means you’re tapping into who nature intended you to be.

And that is when we truly shine.

That is when we change the world.

Because the more effort we put in to being our highest Selves, the better the world is.

What is YOUR Thing? I want to know. Tell me about it in the comments below!

XO,

Emily

I forgive you, 2016. On to 2017.

If you subscribe, you got my note on Monday about taking advantage of this week to channel your energy for 2017. Today is the New Moon, and also the most powerful time to set your intentions for the new year ahead.

This past year was very much about forgiveness for me, though it took me awhile to realize it. It wasn’t until around winter solstice (a time of forgiveness) that I understood the shift that was needed.

I think, as souls, we plan our lives ahead of time in the context of the things we want to learn in order to grow and expand. Having free will and choice, we go through as many different struggles as it takes for us to learn the lesson and move forward.

Those struggles show up in many ways, in the form of circumstances and people that come into our lives.

I’m not going to lie, I’ve hung onto emotional wounds that were inflicted as far back as childhood.

WTF good has that done? Not letting go can waste endless hours of mental energy that could be put towards growth and expansion instead.

When people hurt you, or when super shitty shit happens, try to remember that your Self put that in motion before you came here.

It is your job to figure out the lesson that you’re supposed to learn.

Once you acknowledge and accept the lesson, you can level up and move forward.

Forgiveness, in my case, is something that was somewhat undefined and much easier said than done.

When you detach personally from the ‘bad thing’ and are able to view it as just a super shitty class in the curriculum of life that you planned for yourself before coming here, it’s a game-changer for your mental well-being. At least it was for me 🙂

Once you can get to that point, you can get to a place of gratitude – for the lesson and for the growth and expansion you’ve experienced.

After the Solstice comes the New Moon (today!) and as I said above, the most powerful time for setting intentions for your life.

I want to know :

What is YOUR plan for 2017?

What are you DOING to get closer to your goals and to make your dreams reality?

What are you doing to deepen your CONNECTION to nature and your higher self?

I’m over the moon about 2017 and how amazing it’s going to be. I can’t wait to hear what YOUR intentions are for 2017.

Share in the comments! Your intentions inspire others’ intentions! <3

Love thyself.

We MUST take care of ourselves.

Nurture ourselves.

LISTEN to ourselves, to what our mind and body needs.

Establish a ritual of self-care.

This can look a million different ways. But carve out the time in your day, even if it’s just 15 minutes.

Read a book, drink some tea, meditate, cast a spell, set some intentions, cuddle your pet, whatever does it for you.

Whatever gets you in the zone of calm, the zone of joy.

Doing it first thing in the morning is ideal for me, because it sets the tone for my whole day.

But that might not work for you. Figure out what will.

What matters is that you do it.

Taking care of yourself will allow you to put your best self into the world.

And that is what the world needs.

Your BEST self.

<3

Resolutions vs. Plans

At the beginning of every year, I hear people make these declarations about things they’re going to do starting in January, or at some point in the coming 365 days.  Their “New Year’s Resolutions”.

resolution

: the act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc.

: the act of resolving something

: an answer or solution to something

Most of the time, I find that these declared resolutions actually fit better into one of these two categories:

goal

: something that you are trying to do or achieve

or

intention

: the thing that you plan to do or achieve

: an aim or purpose

: a determination to act in a certain way

: what one intends to do or bring about

Working out more, losing __ pounds, quit smoking, quit drinking, the list goes on.

I know that this is just me being picky about semantics.  But I feel like there are a lot of people that make these ‘resolutions’, and by February they are a distant memory. Why is that?

There are also these things:

dream

: something that you have wanted very much to do, be, or have for a long time

: a strongly desired goal or purpose

aspiration

: a strong desire to achieve something high or great

Now we’re increasing the magnitude of the words.  Dreams and aspirations.  Those sound like long-term ideas, right?  Not something that most people think about doing in the next few months.  But why not?  Every idea has to start somewhere, right?

It isn’t just going to happen in one day, it takes hundreds or thousands of little steps in the direction of your dream.

Steps that you can easily start taking in January, or right now preferably. 🙂

All these things stem from this:

desire

: to want or wish for (something)

: to feel desire for (something)

: to long or hope for

But desire means nothing if you don’t have this:

commitment

: a promise to do or give something

: a promise to be loyal to someone or something

: the attitude of someone who works very hard to do or support something

plan

: a detailed proposal for doing or achieving something

: an intention or decision about what one is going to do
Without these two factors, NONE of these things will ever come to fruition.  Ever.

Probably 90% of people don’t follow through with their “resolutions” past March.

Why is that? Do people make resolutions because they feel like they should? New Year, New Me?  That whole concept?

If you really, truly want something, you are going to COMMIT to getting it.

So what is it? What is it that you DESIRE? DREAM about? ASPIRE to?

Solidify your vision, and just fucking do it.  Figure out what steps you need to take to get there, and make it happen.

Quit listening to your Fear and start listening to your Self. Quit making excuses. 

Make a promise to yourself.  Be loyal to yourself.  Take care of yourself. LOVE yourself.  Respect yourself enough to follow through with the things you’ve always dreamed about.

You have unlimited potential as a human.  Let’s embrace it. Let’s make some PLANS.
