The Key to Stepping into Your True Purpose 

Whether you’re fully aware of it right now or not, I know that you have a Divine purpose to serve this world in a big way.  That purpose is in perfect alignment with you and your gifts so that you can serve others to the best of your ability.

We all have our own purpose… and it is in perfect alignment with what our own unique gifts are.  They are all beautiful and magnificent in their own unique way. 

However, if you’re anything like me, then you’ve experienced doubt.  Maybe you’ve felt the call to grab an idea and make it a reality but your mind has come in with thoughts like…

… I don’t have enough money to do this.

… I don’t have enough time to do this.

… I’m not capable of doing this.

… I don’t have enough education to do this.

nobody is going to like my work.

… I’ll just be judged and criticized for my work.

… I’ll be a failure.

… I’ll never be able to make money doing it.

… other people have done it already.

… other people are better than me.

… I’m not good enough.

Well, I’m here to tell you that you are good enough.  You’re not serving anyone by playing small and staying locked up in fear.

This is one of the many lessons I’ve learned through my friend, mentor, and New York Times Bestselling Author Gabrielle Bernstein.  Gabby has been a life coach and motivational speaker for over a decade and she is committed to guiding us through what blocks us from truly stepping into our life’s purpose. 

For the next couple weeks, Gabby’s sharing 3 free videos that I thought would be extremely beneficial to you.  The material in these videos will help you clear the blocks to your confidence and give you the direction you need so that you can act right now.

There are a few common blocks that hold us back from truly and fully stepping into our true power and Gabby covers them in these 3 videos.

In this first video, she tackles the issue of confidence!  In this video, Gabby will teach you how to gain confidence so you can rise up, live in your true purpose and own your authentic voice.

She shares her own personal story of how she became a speaker, author and public figure with zero past experience or degree.  She also shares the 3 steps that helped her embrace her own power so she could step into her Divine purpose.

Through this video, you’ll be able to gain the confidence that you need to share your own transformational story in your own way so that you can truly serve others and the world.

3 Keys to Manifesting a Healthy and Loving Relationship

We all want a healthy and loving relationship.  You know, a relationship filled with compassion, affection, and acceptance.  A relationship where there is respect.

Whether you are single or not, the desire, to some degree, is likely there.  Unfortunately for many of us, even if we are married or in a relationship we can find ourselves wishing that the relationship was different in some ways.  We may feel that the “spark” has gone away and we wish we could find it again. 

Fortunately, regardless of our relationship status, we can give our relationships a “tune up” when we stop to look within ourselves and consciously choose to make some inner shifts.  Here are 3 keys to manifesting a healthy and loving relationship in your life:

#1 – Have an amazing relationship with yourself

If you hate being alone and you’re self-worth is determined by how active your social life is, then you’re going to be giving off a “I need you to validate my self-worth” kind of vibe when out on a date.  If, on the other hand, you enjoy spending time with yourself and feel totally comfortable in your own shoes, then you’re going to be giving off a “I feel comfortable with myself” kind of vibe.

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that if you do hate being alone and have a low self-worth that you’re not going to find a boyfriend.  The truth is that you probably would.  However, there would be one big problem: The guy has equally as low of a self-worth as you.  Which, would then create a relationship where both people need the other person to validate their own self-worth.

It’s a foundation built on sand — and it’s certainly not where one wants to be if they truly want a healthy and loving relationship.

So get comfortable in your own shoes.  Spend time with yourself.  Take yourself on dates.  Go to the movies, go to dinner or take a mini-vacation with yourself. 

Treat your body well by exercising and eating healthy.  Do activities that you enjoy doing.  Give yourself things that you know you need.

When we become masters of our own self-care, we are giving ourselves the love that we truly deserve.  So focus on doing amazing things for you, so you can have a great relationship with yourself.  It will help in manifesting that healthy and loving relationship you desire.

#2 – Believe that you deserve it

Many of us want a healthy and loving relationship, but, deep down, we don’t believe that we truly deserve it.  Or, we may even think that it’s not possible for us.  Unfortunately, this prevents us from making any kind of progress in getting that loving relationship.

So if you find yourself struggling to believe that you truly deserve it, make a commitment to reframing that mindset.

One way to do this is by saying affirmations.  Every morning or night you can spend some time standing in front of the mirror and stating out loud, “I deserve a healthy and loving relationship”.  Say this 10 times in the morning and 10 times at night for at least 30 days.  You may not notice the shifts right away, but over time you’ll notice a shift.

#3 – Ditch the checklist and, instead, connect with how you want to feel

We all hold expectations.  If you’re single and dating, it may be an expectation that the person you date has a nice car and isn’t working in retail.  If you’re in a relationship, the expectation may be that you want your guy to clean the dishes after he uses them.

When we get ourselves caught up in such expectations it’s like we are creating for ourselves an internal “checklist”.  We have a list in our minds of things that we want and “need” in order to be happy and fulfilled in the relationship.

Unfortunately, these “checklists” take us out of the experience.  It takes us out of what is happening in the moment in your relationship with this other person and, instead, focused on what the person is or isn’t doing.  It’s a way of rating or judging the moment, which blocks us from truly connecting with the other person and experiencing love.

So the key here is that rather than focus on the “checklist” or expectations, we must focus on how it is that we want to feel in the relationship.  Do you want to feel love in your relationship to this other person?  Joy?  Happiness?  A sense of calm?  A place of comfort in their presence?  How do you want to feel in being in the relationship?

When we focus on how it is that we want to feel rather than on the surface-level details, we can find that what we thought we needed, we don’t really “need” after all.  We realize that the “needs” were all arbitrary — and they weren’t helping us get what we truly wanted, which is love.  Rather, they blocked it.

So let go of your “checklist” of expectations and sit back and ask yourself: How do I want to feel?  And then connect to that feeling.  Feel it within your own being and carry it with you throughout the day.  And, eventually, your relationships will start to reflect your internal state.

Why the People We’re Attracted To Don’t Like Us Back

Have you ever been in a situation where you really liked someone but they didn’t like you back?

Maybe you dated a couple times and you really wanted to continue dating but they didn’t. Or, maybe, you really liked the person but they had no interest in going out with you ever.

I’ve been there more than enough times, and I’m sure you’ve been there as well. We’ve all dealt with this at some point or another (and, yes, I’m sure George Clooney and Brad Pitt have even dealt with this at least once at some stage in their lives). And, frankly, it really just flat out sucks.

We’re in a place of really wanting to be with this person and give them all the love, care, and compassion that we have to offer. We want to make this person the center of our universe and really show them just how amazing they truly are… but this person just doesn’t want to be with us.

… and, honestly, I don’t blame them.

Let’s really sit back and think about this. Think about the last time (or a time that you remember very well) where you really liked someone and they didn’t like you back. Maybe you dated them for a while and they decided to end things cause they just weren’t quite “feeling it” or they made some excuse about being “too busy” with work or school or [insert any not fully reasonable excuse here]. How did you act when you were around them?

Were you confident? Were you comfortable? Were you really acting like yourself? Or, were you feeling nervous, insecure, and unworthy? Were you trying to act like someone else rather than yourself?

More often than not, when we’re really attracted to someone but they don’t like us nearly as much in return, it’s because we are in that space of insecurity, neediness, and unworthiness. We feel like we’re not good enough and we’re nervous about being rejected.

Now let me be clear: it’s not something that we need to beat ourselves up about. It’s completely normal. If we really like somebody, then of course we are going to get nervous when around them, because getting rejected by them is going to hurt us so much more than if we get rejected by someone we don’t like. It’s only natural.

However, if we find ourselves constantly in this place of the other person breaking things off with us early on because they’re just “not into you”, then that’s a problem that really needs to be fixed if we ever want to experience a healthy and loving relationship. We can’t really experience love in our lives when we’re bounded by feelings of fear on the inside.

ExperienceLoveBoundedFear

So how can we shift from feelings of fear when around people we are attracted to and connect to love within so we can become a love-magnet? Here are 3 steps:

#1 – Recognize the nature of your fear — then let it go!

What is it that are you are most afraid of experiencing when developing a relationship with someone you are attracted to? Are you nervous about the relationship eventually failing due to some heartbreaks in the past? Do you believe that you are not worthy of love? Do you believe you’re incapable of having a healthy, loving and successful relationship? Are you terrified of being rejected? Are you simply expecting to be rejected?

It’s a slightly different “flavor” for everyone, so it’s important to identify what your patterns of fear are. Write down a list of how your fear manifests for you in the dating world on a sheet of paper or journal. This is critically important because we can’t heal and change something in our lives that we are not consciously aware of!

Once you’ve recognized the nature of your own fear, then simply make the intention to release that fear. This doesn’t have to be complicated. All we really need is to have the desire to change.

#2 – Observe how you act around people who are attracted to you — even when you’re not attracted to them.

Do you act more like you? Are you being your genuine self? Are you expressing your own unique thoughts and feelings without hesitation? Are you comfortable and at ease? Recognize how you behave around these people and write it down on a sheet of paper or journal.

#3 – Envision yourself acting the way you act when around people who are attracted to you.

Close your eyes and in your mind’s eye envision yourself acting the way you act when around people who are attracted to you. See yourself feeling comfortable and confident. Envision yourself completely being your own genuine self and expressing your truth to those around you. Then notice how you feel in your body while envisioning yourself acting this way. Are you hunched over or do you have a straight back? Do you feel energized and strong? Just notice.

This is a great activity to do if you’re about ready to go on a date. The activity can be that before the date, you can take some time to envision yourself being confident and genuine while on the date. Also, if you have made the decision that you’re ready for a new relationship, then do this envisioning activity at the beginning of every day to really shine your own inner truth and love to the world.

Let’s do step 1: How do you experience fear in your romantic relationships? Share it in the comments below!

5 Questions You Must Ask Yourself Before a First Date

First dates can be pretty nerve-racking.  We can find ourselves plagued with fears and worries cause we don’t know what to really expect.

We experience fears of saying the wrong thing, of being rejected, and of, simply, just messing things up early on when we don’t really intend to.  We may be in a place where we’ve been disappointed and have experienced a lot of heartbreak in the past so we just really want to be sure that this time we do things the right way.

So in order to tone down those first-date jitters, here are 5 questions you must ask yourself before you go on that first date:

Am I limiting myself with expectations?

So are you going into this first date with these expectations that he needs to be “tall, dark, and handsome”, making at least $100,000 a year, and/or work out at least 5 days a week?

The trouble with having all these expectations is that we start judging and rating the person based on all these superficial things rather than who the person truly is.  And, frankly, who the person truly is deep down is ultimately going to impact your relationship and potential marriage with them so much more then all of those other things.  All of those things can easily change and evolve in time but who the person is and how you connect with them is the only thing that’s sustainable.

So if you find yourself with some of these expectations, then be aware of them and make the conscious effort to go in with an open mind — all expectations aside.

Am I coming in with an open heart?

Is this your first date after your divorce or a major breakup?  Is a good portion of your day still spent thinking about your ex?  If so, then you probably want to take some time to really try to heal and let things go before the first date.

Frankly, its not really going to be fair for the person you are going on a date with if your still all bitter over “that-loser-ex-boyfriend”.  If you’re still hung up, you are not going to be as open and present with the person you are going out with.  They could find themselves more investing in the relationship later on then you are, or you could find yourself bringing unnecessarily baggage into the new relationship that is just going to cause problems.

It’s better to simply take personal responsibility for your own broken heart and do what you need to do to heal and let things go.  If you find it challenging or if you feel you may bring in some of this baggage into the new relationship, then simply be open and honest and tell your new love interest so they know what’s going on.

Am I looking for someone to complete me?

So are you on a rebound and just wanting this new guy to fill that void in your heart from your heartbreak?  Are you simply bored with life and want someone to give you the love and happiness that you desire?

Here’s a newsflash: The only person who can give you the love that you truly desire is you.  Nobody or nothing else.  Just you.

So be sure that you have things in your life that you find love, joy, and happiness from.  Maybe it’s a group of friends, a class your taking that you’re passionate about, a new project, or your job.  Find something — and even if you don’t really love something that you’re doing in your life for yourself right now then find something that you can really infuse love into.

The more you create love in various aspects of your life, then the more attractive you will be, which, in turn, will create more love in any new relationship you pursue.

Do I really love myself?

Do you see yourself as attractive?  Do you feel confident in your own skin?  Do you acknowledge your own needs?  Do you focus on your own self-care?

If your hesitant about expressing your true self to the world, you don’t feel that you’re very attractive, and your not sure what your own needs are then being in a relationship is only going to make things more difficult.

Start up a self-care routine — start doing yoga regularly, work out, be in-tune with your body to know when you need to rest or not, eat healthier, wear cute dresses so you feel more attractive, or get a haircut or try a new hairstyle.  Focus on doing things to really love and take care of you. 

Who am I?  (or  the better question: Who do I really want to be in life?)

What are your interests?  What are you passionate about?  Who do you see yourself as being 10, 20, or 30 years from now?  Are your actions today in alignment with that vision?  If not, then it’s time to make some changes so that this new potential love interest can see just how amazing you really are.

Take action now!

Get out a journal or sheet of paper ask yourself all of these 5 questions.  Write down any thoughts you have regarding any of these questions.  Which one of these five questions do you feel you need the most work on?  (and, trust me, regardless of how much work you have done there will be at least ONE of these questions that you need work on!).  Share it in the comments below!

How to Not Lose Yourself in a Relationship

If you’re like me, you very easily lose yourself in a relationship the second it really starts up.  You find yourself spending the majority entire time with the person your dating — and, even when you’re not together, you’re basically spending all of your free time thinking about the person.

Their interests, tastes, and activities somehow become the center of your universe.  You find yourself listening to their favorite music and watching all of their favorite movies.

Somehow, within the matter of a few weeks or months… sometimes even days… you’re world goes from your life focusing on your own work, doing activities that you enjoy, and hanging out with friends regularly to spending the majority of your time with your new guy.  Your friends seem to wonder if you disappeared off the face of the earth and you’ve seem to have completely forgotten what life was like to be single.

Many women struggle with this.  In fact, we are biologically hardwired to be dependent.  When we are falling in love, the part of the brain where critical thinking takes places shuts down.  We then also tend to get all hyper-empathetic with the person, just as a mother would with her baby.

It’s kind of a natural maternal-based instinct, though it can cause us a lot of imbalance and, ultimately, stress and problems in our relationships.

So what are some things that we can do to help prevent this from happening so we can feel like we have equally as much freedom in our relationships as the guy does and still feel happy and loved?  Here are some things to keep in mind:

Establish a routine for “me” time.

One thing that I find incredibly important is to make your own “me” time a routine so that it becomes a habit.  It can take a more conscious effort starting out (especially in the beginning of a new relationship when everything is so exciting and fresh).

Set a weekly schedule for yourself.  Make Thursdays your night out with your girlfriends.  Make Wednesdays a night out to take your painting class.  Set at least 2 days a week where you schedule things to simply just do things for you — and make sure that it has nothing to do with him.

lose yourself in a relationship

Take some space away from each other through the phone and social media.

You don’t have to be in touch with one another 24/7.  If he texts or calls you, you don’t need to always respond right away just as he doesn’t with you.  Create some space in the way you electronically communicate.

Voice Your Wants and Needs.

If you really don’t necessarily like one of his interests, it is okay to say so.  If you don’t want to go do an activity that he likes to do, it’s okay to not go.  You can try it out and given him the respect and support he needs with it, but remember that it’s not a bad thing to  not be completely on the same page with every single thing.

Same goes for your own beliefs and opinions — political, religious, or whatever.  It’s actually a good thing to not agree on everything!  And it’s not that one person ever has to be “right” or “wrong” but you can both agree to disagree, and still hold respect and love for one another.

Take time every day to regularly check in with yourself and ask “How am I feeling?”

For many women, when we’ve lost ourselves in a relationship we are completely disconnected from our own feelings because we are so incredibly focused on our love interest’s feelings.  So take the time throughout the day to really check in with how your feeling.  And — better yet — do it when you’re completely alone and having some “me” time.

And pay special attention if you have any anger built up inside, as that is an emotion that is commonly repressed in women who lose themselves in their relationships.

Be on the lookout for red flags.

If he always only wants to spend his time with you and only you, if he doesn’t like it when you go and “do your own thing”, or if he’s jealous that you’re going to go hang out with your girlfriends then it may be a sign that the guy your dating is a bit on the too needy side of things.  

If this comes up, you may want to drop in the idea of him having some of his own “me” time with friends or to do whatever.  Though, if it is a consistent issue where you feel like he doesn’t respect you having your own space, then it may be a sign to call it quits.

Take action now!

What are some things that you enjoy doing while single that you noticed you stop doing once you’re in a relationship?  Them down on a sheet of paper or in a journal.  Now find a way to do it!  Plan it, and write it in your calendar — if it’s not scheduled in your calendar, then it’s not happening, so be sure to actually write it down!  Share your personal realization in the comments below!

3 Keys to Being Irresistibly Attractive

We all want others to like us.  Deep down in our hearts we all want to feel supported, respected, and, most importantly, loved.

Yet, unfortunately, for many of us this is much easier said then done.  We can feel like we always fall short in finding this love that we so desire to experience.

We can feel like we’re giving too much and that what we give isn’t being reciprocated.  We can feel like we are always the one trying in our romantic relationships but that, for some reason, we can’t find a partner who will try just as hard.

We can find ourselves frustrated, unfulfilled, drained, and, deep down, wondering why on earth love is just so darn difficult to find in this world.  Why is it that, despite all efforts, love seems to still be just out of reach?

I feel for you — I totally do.  Like Pat Benatar sang, “Love is a battlefield”.  As much as we don’t like it, it really is!

The unfortunate truth of the matter is this: You can make everyone like you.  Just like you also can’t force someone to like you… no matter how hard you try.

But, I do have some very exciting news: You can make changes in order to make yourself irresistibly attractive.

What’s the secret, you ask?  To really truly love and have confidence in yourself.  To truly believe in yourself and take the time to really focus and do what is best for you.

IrresistiblyAttractive

Here’s the thing: Many of us waste our energy on things that aren’t really positively serving us.  We worry about whether someone will like us or not.  We obsess about a past relationship that didn’t work.  We go on a first date with this underlying fear of “Will I be rejected?”

The trouble is that when we do these things its like we’re allowing holes to be poked into the bottle of our own unique goodness.  We allow all these things to suck away our energy, which prevents us from truly standing in our own unique power.

And you know what?  It’s not very attractive.  Other people can feel that energy and they know and feel your fear.  And so we do one or both things:

1.  We attract others to us who are equally as fearful.

2.  We allow these blocks to hold us back from really creating a fulfilling relationship.

So what can we do to truly love and have more confidence in ourselves so that we can truly be irresistibly attractive?

Take care of yourself.

Go out and exercise.  Eat healthy.  Take the time periodically check-in with your body.  If you feel exhausted, then take the time to rest.  If you feel energized then make sure you get out there and channel that energy into some great work or work out!

>> Action step: Check in with your body right now. What is something that could make you feel better right now?  A walk along a beach or lake?  A nice salt bath?  A big plate of steamed veggies?  A few minutes of meditation?

Do what you love to do.

Even though we can’t always control avoiding the things that we hate to do, we can find time to do the things that we love to do!  If you’ve always wanted to learn how to paint, then start painting.  If you love dancing, then go out dancing!

>> Action step: Make a list of things that you love to do.  These could be things that you already do, things that you used to do but don’t do anymore, or things that you’ve always wanted to do but have never done.  Pick one or two from the list and find a way to start doing them!

Believe in you.

Believe that you are capable of really having what your heart desires.  Believe that you do truly deserve love.  Know that you are good enough… you are worthy!

>> Action step: Write down the following affirmation on a notecard: “I deserve love” or “I am worthy of love”.  Place this notecard in your mirror.  Every time you look at it say it to yourself out loud.

5 Things Women Need to Remember to Create The Best Life Imaginable

We all want the best life imaginable.  We want fulfilling relationships filled with love and connection and a career that we never get tired of.

But how many of us women actually KNOW how to create that for ourselves?  I mean, heck, as women we don’t have nearly as many role models to look to for inspiration and guidance on how to truly create the best lives for ourselves.

It’s easy to just sit and wonder puzzled over where to even begin.  So here are 5 things that every woman needs to remember in order to create the life of their dreams.

No person or thing else can make us happy – we have to give that to ourselves!

The habit that many of us fall into is thinking that other people and things are going to fulfill us.  We buy a brand new Gucci purse thinking that’s going to make our lack of emotional fulfillment in our job feel so much better.  We latch on to our new boyfriend with this underlying belief that “he will complete us” in some way.

The “tough love” truth here is that NONE of those things are going to make you fulfilled – or, at least, not for very long.  The only way that we can make ourselves happy and fulfilled is by doing things to give it to ourselves.

So stop and ask yourself: What activities make me happy?  What makes me feel happy and fulfilled as I do it?  Then start incorporating that into your daily life!

ALL emotions are valid.

Many of us women are either taught by our families or ex-boyfriends that our feelings and ridiculous and we simply just shouldn’t have them.  Well I’m here to tell you that is completely RIDICULOUS!  Emotions are the underlying drive to everything that happens in this world.

So rather than fall into the classic mental trap of “Oh I can’t express this emotion because people will think its ridiculous”, change the mindset to “This is my emotion.  It is real, it is valid, and it deserves to be nourished”.

Take care of yourself.  Except how you feel and do what you need to make yourself feel better.

Each and every one of us is struggle with our own unique battle.

Every single person is struggling in this world and, because of that, every single person is doing the best they can do at this point in time.  When we fully accept that, we can save ourselves a lot of unnecessary stress.

We can’t create the life of our dreams if we’re living someone else’s life.

Be willing to express your uniqueness to the world.  If every female in your family is a nurse and you don’t want to be a nurse, then don’t do it!  Be YOU.  Do what is best for YOU, not what other’s expect of you.

We ALL deserve the best life imaginable.

The single biggest reason many of us struggle to create the life of our dreams is because we don’t BELIEVE we deserve it.  There’s always that little voice in our heads that tells us “Why do I deserve the life of my dreams?”  Well, who and what says that you DON’T deserve it?  You are a wonderful human being and deserve to receive all the things your heart desires.  The more you believe that deep within yourself, the closer you get to achieving it.

5 Ways to Stop Self-Sabotaging Your Dream

We all have a dream. To do the very thing that we love to do that makes us feel fulfilled, vibrant, and more alive. The very thing that excites us every day and leaves us in a state of wonder over all of our opportunities for creation.

But how many of us actually make those dreams a reality? The trouble is that for many of us, we have these dreams but we stop before we even really begin. We have limiting beliefs that sneak in and tell us things like “I don’t have the time or money to start this” or “I’ll never be able to make a living doing that”.

Whenever these thoughts come up it feels like being a dog on a leash – you want to run and you have all the energy and inspiration to, but you have this collar around your neck with a leash attached to it holding you back.

So what can we do to stop self-sabotaging ourselves so that we CAN create the life of our dreams?

Keep focused on the dream.

Every time we make progress and a thought like “I can’t do this because…” comes up, we must to stop, breath, and focus on the goal. We must focus completely on the outcome that we want to create. The more energy that we put into focusing on that dream then the more fuel we give that dream over our mind’s pessimism.

Stay persistent.

Envision the dreams in our mind’s eyes and then create a plan. We need to ask ourselves: What can we do every day to take us one step closer to making our dream a reality? Everyone fails and struggles in the process of making their dream come true. Even Walt Disney had plenty of rejections, but he succeeded through his persistence.

Trust that our inner guide has all the answers we need.

During those moments when we have really been struggling to draft a plan on how to achieve our goal, stop and be still. The answers to all of our questions on our journey are already buried deep down within us. And, chances are, the answers may have already popped up in our minds as a thought or idea but we just haven’t fully acknowledged and accepted it. Pay close attention to those random thoughts and ideas as they come up.

Relax and be passive when we feel the need to.

Our modern day society has taught us that productivity is not occurring unless we are actively working. Guess what? This is not true! Our moments of relaxation, reflection and looking within are just as equally important as being active. We must learn to pay close attention to our own needs and desires at each given moment and trust that acting on them is exactly what we need to move closer to our dream.

Be patient and have faith that all will be okay.

Though we can set up a plan to make our dreams a reality, we can never really know the results so we must allow ourselves to trust and have faith. The results will come when they are truly meant to come, so we have to have patience and be easy on ourselves. The ego-driven habit is to worry and become restless. Breath. Enjoy the moment. Enjoy the process of getting there. After all, it is the journey through the obstacles that create greater depth and meaning than the outcome itself.
