WHAT SELF-LOVE LOOKS AND FEELS LIKE (AND HOW TO START PRACTICING IT TODAY)

Header_1394x566_self_love-697x285.jpg

Self-love. This is the whole basis of my profession. I help women all over the world return to their natural state of love. Back to their authentic state before all the pain, holes, and gaps were created in their identity. When we were born, it was our most natural state of pure love. Then, life happens!

Some of us were born into an environment in which we were not wanted, were a mistake, or just plain ole’ got in the way. This all resulted in a distortion in the way we view love, especially for ourselves. Even if we were born in an environment in which we were planned and wanted, we still received messages about ourselves through our parents, school, friends, etc. We internalized our parent’s anger, frustration, and bad days. We created stories about ourselves and how unlovable we are. Or how we get in the way.

WHY MY KIDS STILL LIKE ME AFTER I DIVORCED THEIR DAD

Header-1394x566_why_my_kids-697x285.jpg

As I sit here peacefully listening to the birds chirping, my kids are with their dad for the weekend, and I can’t help but reflect on the last 4 years plus. It just so happened that a Facebook memory popped up of me and my daughter 6 years ago. I sent it to her right away as it was a “bring your child to work day” pic of me and her in my classroom when I was a 6th grade teacher. After her first initial response of, “Aww, we were so cute”, she said something that truly hit me. She said, “That’s not your genuine smile. It doesn’t even look like you”. And it didn’t.

That picture was taken at a time in my life when I was struggling to be happy but just didn’t know how, or the first thing about true happiness. I cared way more back then about what I looked like on the outside. I never felt enough, no matter how pretty or fit I was. Or how big my house was. Or which car I drove. It was a time when my spirit was heavy and the darkness penetrated right through that picture.

6 WAYS TO RAISE YOUR VIBE STARTING TODAY

Header_1394x566_6ways_jraise_vibe-697x285.jpg

Good Vibes Only. We see this saying all over social media, clothing, and knick-knacks but what exactly is a vibe and why is it so important that it’s good? We all have a variety of emotions that come and go and vary upon the different experiences that come our way. We have beliefs about ourselves and certain experiences trigger certain emotions based upon those beliefs. Some emotions serve us better than others.

When we are functioning from a place of love, then we are manifesting all of our heart’s desires. If we are making decisions and reacting from a place of fear, then we are blocking all the greatness that is trying to reach us. When we believe we are blessed and feel grateful, then the emotion of gratitude will create more things in our lives to be grateful for. The same goes if we play the victim role and hold onto resentment and anger, then this will negatively serve us and bring more experiences into our lives to feel like a victim and carry anger.

Header_1394x566_cutting_cords2-697x285.jpg

Are you trying hard to move on but just can’t seem to stop obsessing over an ex? Do you still feel like he has an energetic hold on you? In relationships, we form energetic cords, or cords of attachment, attaching our human energy field to our partners’. Often, we try to move on but we’re still connected. This allows us to feel stuck, drained, and frustrated. It is essential that we cut these cords that bind us.

5 WAYS TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND COPE WITH HORMONAL CHANGES NATURALLY

Header_1394x566_5ways_cope_hormonal_changes-697x285.jpg

We all know them. They can be compared to the month of March. They come in like a lion and out like a lamb. They’re the hormonal changes that occur for many of us whether due to menstruation, postpartum, or menopause. We’ve all experienced the uncontrollable sobbing, anxiety, sadness, mood swings, bloating, breast tenderness. cramping, break-outs, irritability, and panic attacks that result from these changes.

When I was about 7 months pregnant with my first child, I started to get panic attacks out of nowhere. Doctors blamed it on my hormones and pregnancy and I bought it. But, if I knew then what I know now, I would’ve seen what was going on a bit more clearly. My whole life was turned upside down at the age of 19 when I became pregnant for the first time, got married to my ex-husband of 16 years that I knew for about 3 months, and started to become a real adult, all after breaking up with my ex-boyfriend of 2 ½ years 6 months prior to getting married. Yep read that one again to fully comprehend the whirlwind I was in!

3 ACTIONS TO ALLOW YOUR SELF TO FEEL WORTHY AND EXCEPTIONAL

Header_1394x566_3actions-697x285.jpg

Not feeling worthy comes from a place of not feeling like we are good enough. The first step is to first realize this is one of our false beliefs about ourselves and then just acknowledge it. Just in our awareness of it, we immediately begin the healing process to change. How do we know we may feel unworthy? Well, what are you attracting in your life? Are you attracting all the wrong partners in love and dating? Are you attracting the guys that call you “babe” within the first few text exchanges? When my close friend and I were newly single after our divorce, we used to think it was so cute when guys called us “babe” because it must’ve meant they really adored us! Uh…no! It means that everyone is their “babe” and by them not using our names, they actually weren’t acknowledging our identity, our worth. I now realize it would’ve been just the same as giving us a number!

HOW FEAR IS KEEPING YOU FROM THE LIFE OF YOUR DREAMS

Header_1394x566_fear_stopping_you-1-697x285.jpg
 

Complacency is the death of all your dreams. Most people would rather settle for a life that they know than risk it to go after a life they truly want. Comfortable is safe. The unknown creates fear. Fear keeps you stuck. I stayed married about 5 years longer than I wanted to because it was safe. I knew what to expect every day even if it wasn’t what I actually wanted. I stayed at work as a teacher before pursuing my coaching business about a year too long out of fear of the unknown. I had a steady paycheck, a pension, and benefits. It was safe. Take a minute right now to ask yourself what you would do and where you would be if there was no such thing as fear.

The answer is who you were truly meant to be. This is where your life was meant to go. Anything done out of fear is not authentic to yourself and your true purpose. Life is meant to be lived and explored. It wasn’t meant for you to sit on your couch day in and day out. It wasn’t meant for you to scroll through social media comparing yourself to everyone and wishing you were doing what they’re doing. It wasn’t meant to wait and wait. You have one life to live in your exact shoes and live out your true desire and purpose. Are you truly living it? Like the famous line in the movie Braveheart states, “Every man dies but not every man truly lives.”

‘I CHOSE ME’ – A LETTER TO THE EDITOR FROM A WORTHY WOMAN

i-chose-me-1.jpg

 

A few days after publishing the article 8 Ways Divorce is a Gift, we received an email from one of our readers, Nicole. She shared with us a blog post she had written earlier this year. We found her story so honest, moving and inspiring, that we thought it would be too selfish not to share it with our worthy women. Read further to meet her.

By Nicole Amaturo
 
Although the holidays are happy for so many, they can also bring pain to those thinking about a divorce, in midst of a divorce, or post-divorce, so I wanted to share something I wrote about a year ago to help. At that time I had read a blog that asked, “When was the last time you heard someone talk proudly of their divorce? They just don’t.” After reading this, I wrote the following blog because I was part of a small percentage that did speak proudly of her divorce. About a month after writing it, my soulmate found me unexpectedly, for we apparently had the same hiding place. He is someone I love purely, respect, admire, and adore. My goal after the divorce though was to first become someone I loved purely, respected, admired, and adored and that took a lot of work, never truly understanding what really loving myself meant until I was divorced.
 
My message to you is that although the pain seems like torture, it is there to help you heal and bring you to your own happiness. Stay with it and allow it the space to do its job. I have been where you are and know the despair and emptiness you may be feeling right now, but it is a blessing although hard to see. I share my story with you to help start your journey to healing. Know that your divorce is a gift to yourself as you are “Choosing You” just as, “I Chose Me”.
