Celebrating You

happiness success

Celebrate all the little successes because they are what *really* count.

You have overcome so much. You have not given up! You rise up after every setback, and you continue to push forward. Stop being so hard on yourself. Stop being disappointed in yourself. Stop judging yourself. You’ve come way too far to doubt yourself anymore.

Allow yourself to believe in your strength, resilience, and recognize that all is well (as it always has been) even when it seems hard. Need evidence of that? You’re here aren’t you? You are a survivor! You have overcome! You have things to be grateful for in your life!

Give yourself credit for all your victories along the way. You have worked hard to get where you are, don’t focus on feeling like you're not there yet. It’s a vicious cycle of chasing of the "next moment" instead of embracing how far you've come and reveling in the goodness of right now. Take credit for trying. Take credit for your progress. The little things do matter.

Stop living like you’re not “there” yet because there is no “there.” Once you get “there” there will be a new “there.” So, cut yourself some slack and enjoy the journey and all the tiny little victories and joys along the way. This is what life is – a journey – a perpetual path of moving towards what we want. Since what we want is always changing and evolving as we have new experiences along the way, choose to be happy now. Celebrate every little success. Enjoy the “becoming” of life.

We tend to think that success is only an achievement of an end goal, or a leap from where you are to where you want to be. However, it's those baby steps, those small accomplishments, and those days where you want to give up, but you try a little harder, that count. Every single day, every single moment, is an opportunity to celebrate those small wins. The more you celebrate the better you feel, and the better you feel, the more there is to celebrate!

Your feelings of celebration are adding up energetically and will manifest your desires. Don’t doubt yourself. Be patient and loving with yourself. Remember that you are good enough. That you are worthy of great happiness.

Have a very happy holiday season! I just wanted to say that I am proud of you. Keep going!

Peace and joy,

Signature Shannon transp

Are You Sabotaging Your Healthy Efforts?

obstacle between ears

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Your vitality is in direct proportion to how brightly and how frequently you let your light shine.  To be clear, your light is always shining; you simply have to let go of what’s dimming it from being seen – the veils or filters that conceal the brightness of who you really are.

Let’s talk about this in terms of healthy behaviours. There are many activities you can do to increase your physical and mental health – clean eating, active movement, quality sleep, medicine when necessary, meaningful relationships, enlisting support, therapy, researching alternatives, relaxation, self-care, etc. We all know about these opportunities and activities that lead to greater health and vitality.

Once you decide on what activity you would like to add or remove from your life, and once you get to the point that you are ready to make the change, or maintain it, the key to success in this endeavour is your mindset. As it turns out, your mindset is largely, I’d say primarily, a result of your vibration (how brightly or dimly you allow your light to shine). Vibration precedes everything else.

For example, when you eat your greens because you think you should or must; when you pay no attention to it, shovel it down, or just get it over with; your body cannot benefit from it the same way it would if you were focused on higher vibrations such as the enjoyment, satisfaction, or gratitude of this otherwise healthy activity.

When you eat under duress (stress), your nervous system shifts to preparing to fight or flee; it slows or stops your ability to fully digest and assimilate the nutrients to heal your cells because all the body’s energy and attention goes to your survival needs instead of your regenerative, restorative, healing needs. When you’re focused on how much you hate what you’re eating, that you don’t have time to eat, or when you judge something as bad for you, you ensure that you’re not getting the nutritional benefits you could be getting from it.

Alternatively, when you apply your attitude and mindset to mindfulness, gratitude, appreciation, enjoyment, savouring, and focusing on the pleasure of what you’re eating (no matter if it’s a green smoothie or chocolate cake), you increase your body’s uptake of nutrition and ability to heal your cells, thereby increasing your physical vitality, while also increasing your mental-emotional vitality.

Bringing it back around now, your job is to let your light shine by being mindful of your thoughts, behaviours and limiting beliefs (beliefs are simply repetitive thoughts, which you can choose to change). Instead, focus on what brings you joy. Do things (including eat) deliberately, with positive intention, awareness, presence and gratitude. The longer you can stay clear of those low-vibe filters, the easier it gets to keep your light shining bright, and the more vitality you feel.

TAKE ACTION TODAY:  Eat your next meal without distraction (no TV, cell phone, reading, computer). Really pay attention to each and every bite, savouring the flavour and texture, and being grateful for the nutritional healing that is being delivered to your cells. Notice how your body feels, breathe deeply to relax, and stop when you feel satisfied. Notice how your behaviour, needs, and desires change when you do this. Let me know what you discover!

Peace and ease,

Signature Shannon transp

The Flow Zone and the Daily Grind

Wanderlust

When you're on vacation - especially the kind where you're travelling around a lot - it's such a great feeling when you get into that zone where you stop planning and just go with the flow.  Coincidences lead to amazing experiences and opportunities that are perfect for you. 

Then you come home and you suffer a bit of culture shock because you don't quite fit back into your old box anymore. You notice that you have to try harder, push a little more, repsonsibilities drag you down, and that awesome sense of ease and flow is gone. Wouldn't it be great to keep living in the zone at home?

It's definitely easier to be in the zone on vacation than back in the daily grind, but it CAN be done.

WHAT is that flow zone?

It's when you are living in alignment with your true self, when you stop worrying about the details, when you follow your intuition and it leads to the next cool experience or new friend. When you feel great and everything happens easily and perfectly - even the so-called challenges turn out for the best.

WHY does the flow zone happen more easily on vacation?

You are living in the present.

  • this is easier to do on vacation because everything is about the now. You're there to enjoy yourself and fewer details are pre-planned - you just do what you feel like (more on this in a minute).
  • in real life, you have a schedule that is not entirely up to you because you are responsible to others. Detailed planning is required to get everything done.

You are aligned with, and stay in, what Danielle LaPorte calls your core desired feelings - the 3-5 emotions you want to feel 90% of the time.

  • this is easier on vacay because that's what we have vacations for - to feel happy, relaxed, excited, engaged, free, etc.
  • you don't know how you will achieve these feelings specifically, you don't plan it, you just expect to feel great and you know it will happen, so it does.
  • you have no need to control every detail and instead, surrender to whatever happens as part of the adventure.

HOW can we live in the zone in everyday life?

Staying in the feeling you desire is at the top of the list. The rest of it comes easier if you just do this.

  • define what your core desired feelings are and then ask yourself what you can do to feel that way throughout the day. You may find ways to make a mundane task feel better, or choose a different task altogether and delegate what doesn't feel good sometimes.
  • instead of focusing on specific tasks, to-do lists, or goals, you might try focusing on your bigger intentions based on your core desired feelings and then design your actions based on moving towards your intentions. In other words, allow yourself to be more flexible in how you get there.

Living in the now is another key way to stay in the zone. You've heard all the hype around mindfulness? Being present in the moment is key because it helps you let go of the how. Trying to constantly define the how is basically worrying about the future.

  • when you live in the moment, you have an opportunity to appreciate instead of trying to control. Appreciation and gratitude is not only a statement that "I like this," but also that "I already have this." In terms of the Law of Attraction, this is a powerful mindset because that feeling of appreciating what you have is the Truth/Aligned and because there's no resistance to that, you will attract more of that high vibration.
  • In the now, you are open to noticing more coincidences, signs and opportunities, which make you feel good and grateful, which fuels more positive experiences, and keeps you in the flow zone.

As with anything you want to change in your life, you need to implement a daily practice to get good at it. The key components to practice are:

  • staying in your core desired feelings
  • letting go of controlling the how
  • living in the now
  • appreciating or being grateful for what is
  • expecting greatness - know it will happen

 

Peace and ease,
