Today I am sharing with you the Introduction to my Free Spirit Guidebook and some other tidbits that will help you get the most from using this book.
“Are you ready to be a free spirit? Maybe you already are one. Either way, this guidebook will help you get grounded in your personal energy and what it means to you to be a free spirit.
The idea of being a free spirit is often associated with going against social norms. That is why I chose it as the title for this guidebook. The lessons here are not what everyone is doing every day or what you regularly see in the media.
Right off the bat, you will have to be open-minded. Allow the work in this guidebook to reveal parts of yourself that you have been searching for.
It will take courage and discipline. Often, words like discipline and structure are not words that are associated with being a free spirit. However, when you set aside time to tend to yourself regularly, you will begin to experience a level of freedom that you have never felt before.
Free spirits are known for their independence, and this guide will help you march to the beat of your own drum.
Whether you are a homebody or world traveler, the lessons in this guidebook will help you feel grounded and connected wherever you are. Get ready to embrace your journey to free spirit living! This guide is filled with simple ways to help you start enjoying life more.
It is a mix of my creations, ancient techniques from my yogic studies, tried and true life coaching exercises, along with energy work from my experience as a metaphysical teacher and intuitive counselor.
I am not going to teach you how to live my way, however. Everything I share will help you become a more authentic version of yourself. You will be drawn to different lessons and begin to use them in your unique way in your life.
You will learn how to empower yourself and shift your energy to a higher vibration.
If you commit to working on the tips and exercises, you will feel a massive positive shift in the flow and experience of your life.
This work will help you feel more like yourself and more confident in the choices you make. I am not saying you won’t have bad days.
The goal of the work I am sharing is to help you learn how to handle the ups and downs of life with more grace and ease.
You will learn how to tune out the world around you and tune into your inner wisdom. You will have resources to change your mood, your thoughts, your breath, and your life.
Your life might change, or you might change how you look at your life. Or both! Either way, you will feel empowered by the work you do and happy that you have committed to bringing positive change into your life.
Take a moment and thank yourself for taking this time for yourself.
You might want to create a special place in which to do the work in this guide. This space could be a room, a chair, a nook. Maybe just a basket or tray that will contain the tools you want around you as you work through this guide.
Doing this will help you transition from your day to taking this special time for yourself. It will become a sacred space for you. You might like to have candles, matches, incense, essential oils, etc. Make it yours.
There is a positive affirmation at the end of each lesson that you might like to incorporate into your life or possibly repeat when you are practicing the lessons.
There is a lot of information in this guide, and I want to let you know that you will not be incorporating all of it into your daily life. Instead, think of it as a toolbox you can use to help you get unstuck, pumped up, relaxed, goal-oriented, and so on.
When you are first starting, you might like to keep your efforts private. Honor your feelings around how you share the time you take for yourself.
You will have different needs at different times, and this guide will feel like a comforting space to come back to help you tune in and remember who you really are.
Get ready, free spirit! I hope you enjoy this journey!
Today I am sharing a special visualization that helped me a few years ago during Christmastime. It is perfect if you have a family member or loved one that is struggling. You can even use it for yourself.
I took Simon, my older son, to confession at a local church the week of Christmas. I was feeling overwhelmed by a situation with a family member and shared that with the priest.
He suggested I try this visualization and it has helped me so much over the years. I am hoping that it will bring you some peace too this holiday season.
This is perfect if you have a Christian background but I share other ideas like angels, Mother Earth, or any other healing entity that will soothe you.
No matter what or how you are celebrating this time of year, I want you to know that I am holding you in light and love.
I will be taking the rest of the year off to spend time with family. Wishing you a peaceful end to 2020 and a hopeful start to 2021!
Gift yourself grace and guidance this holiday season! Try setting a timer and doing this for 1 minute. It feels so good! ❤️
FEELING ALL WORKED UP AND OVERWHELMED?
Take a moment and breathe.
Inhale through your nose and exhale out of your mouth.
Even add a sighing sound on the exhale if it feels good.
Do this at the very least 3 times.
This type of breath lowers your heart rate.
Every time you relax, your life will flow with more ease.
Add in some shoulder tools and neck massage more a whole self-care moment to yourself.
Gift yourself grace and guidance this holiday season! Remind yourself of this anytime you are taking things personally.
FINDING THAT THE BEHAVIOR OF OTHERS IS PUTTING YOU IN A BAD MOOD?
* Remember that everyone is doing the best they can with the knowledge they have. That doesn’t mean their behavior is not annoying or possibly hurtful but try to remember that it is a reflection of them and their life experience and has nothing to do with you. (This might take time but can certainly help during this time of year!!!)
This change in thinking I learned from Don Miguel Ruiz and Louise Hay. It is not always easy but it can help you experience a bit more grace.
Gift yourself grace and guidance this holiday season! Here is the video version of Tip 3. You don’t have to figure everything out on your own. Ask for guidance!
LOOKING FOR A PARKING SPOT OR THE PERFECT GIFT?
Ask your “runners” to go find it for you and then trust that they will. (Runners are guides that love to help you find things. You can view them as people, angels, guides or simply energy.)
You are supported by the energy of the universe!
Gift yourself grace and guidance this holiday season! Do what you need to do to be open to guidance. This might include gentle things like going for a walk, breathing or yoga. You might first need to get some pent up energy out through a loud scream, punching some pillows or dancing.
WORRYING ABOUT THINGS GOING WRONG OR NOT BEING PERFECT?
Ask God/Spirit/Universe to take your worries away. Literally, ask that in your head or out loud. Then ask what you should do next. You might hear the words “relax” or you might get an actual sign about the right next step to take.
Remind yourself that you don’t have to figure out everything on your own. Stay open to creative possibilities!
