Are you worthy? Of course you are!!

Doubts of feeling worthy comes from fear which may have begun during childhood experiences. Fear is a word we all dread yet is a necessary part of our primal blueprint. It alerts us to danger which then activates our flight or fight response so we can act as we protect ourselves. However, fear can also be a deterrent as we begin to face new opportunities in life and push ourselves to be better.

Psychologically speaking, fear can cause us to hold back from achieving our dreams and being creative as doubts consume our thoughts. On a daily basis we may identify with more negative thoughts, such as “I am unworthy, I am not enough, I don’t have what it takes, I am not unique.” These are very strong statements and said often enough it will appear as though it’s true.

For the past 3 years I have felt fear and feelings of unworthiness stronger than before as I set on my path as an entrepreneur. Family wise, support is limited because they doubt I can be successful without a steady paycheck. However, I’m building a community of entrepreneurs, especially with women, who are showing me otherwise.

Yet, fear continues to rear its ugly head and I procrastinate or stall or not accomplish what I say I will do which eats me up inside. Fortunately, I have asked my guardians/angels for support and they have willingly sent me people, books, resources, etc to assist me in challenging fear. I have now learned to embrace fear and identify when it’s present so I can decide to move forward.

Since then, I have taken a more proactive approach in my business as I step into the light. I am dedicated to writing you newsletters that are teachable moments, show my vulnerability and truth, while sharing tips and resources that have helped me along the way.

I recently recorded this video for myself and you as a reminder that We are Worthy and We are Enough. In this world of chaos and anger, we must be the light and peace we want to see more of in this world. Therefore, by stating“I am worthy and I am Enough” we can show up with confidence, peace, and being present.

Join me today in repeating these mantras on a daily basis. “I am Worthy and I am Enough.”

My purpose is to empower you on your healing journey and my mission is to offer you health-related insights, practical tips, inspiration and stories that will support you in living balanced towards a happy and healthy life as you embrace your joy and purpose.

Feel free to reply to this blog as I’d love to hear from you and pass this along to someone who may benefit from it as we all need love everyday!

Shake off stress and frustration

Happiness is a thought and an action. So is relaxation and enjoying life. Lately I’ve been questioning myself about what brings me happiness because sometimes I don’t always feel so happy. Just the other day I was feeling upset and angry without understanding why. I allowed the emotions to run their course by crying and yelling throughout the apartment as I released the intense energy coursing through my body. Then I crashed on my bed and fell asleep. Once I awoke all of it was gone and I felt better. I still haven’t been able to understand why I was so upset yet instead of focusing on the why or thoughts, I focused on the actions I could do to release it.

Feelings and thoughts come and go yet they only manifest into stronger emotions when we focus on them. This is a message I remind myself and share with my clients. Basically I remind them, do your emotions control you or do you control your emotions? In the above example, I knew those emotions could really take over if I allowed them and feelings of anger could linger longer and eventually lead to depression.

Yet, I chose to take action and release the emotions which is not always an easy process. It does take the mindset of making a choice to be upset or happy. I chose happiness. I created a list of identifying ways I could relax and enjoy life plus what I was grateful for. As I wrote this list I could feel my body become lighter and calmer. My frown was really turning itself upside down. Then I chose one activity from my list to do, listening to music, and played my favorite song. I have learned that one way of releasing stress is by shaking. So, I raised the volume as loud as I could (not very loud because it was on my computer) and shook every part of my body as I released whatever pent up stressed I had. I sure danced, moved, and laughed throughout the almost 4  minutes of the song, I’m Alive.

After the song I drank water and gave thanks for the ability to shake off the stress and really enjoy this amazing life I have created for myself. It’s not always perfect yet it’s up to me (and you) to remember all the wonderful blessings I have.
