5 MONEY BLOCKS + 4 SECRETS TO GET UNSTUCK
Our judgments shine a light on our internal beliefs about yourself and can greatly impact you throughout each day. You see, judgements about other people are judgements about yourself.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR FEELINGS
Everyday people are having conversations around money… how to get it, how to earn it, how to spend it, if they have enough of it.. Etc… and yet it’s still a TABOO topic right up there with sex and politics. It is just paper and yet we have so many psychological issues tied to it.
BRAVE ENOUGH TO LOVE THE 1.0 VERSION
As children all of us create a special lens of experiencing feelings and emotions-weather that’s negative or positive. Growing up in the south, emotions weren’t something I really understood or valued. I didn’t know how to feel them or express them in a healthy way. For some reason I adopted this thought that emotions weren’t a good thing.
3 REASONS TO KEEP HATING YOUR BODY
On Facebook you occasionally get notifications for your “memories”. Photos or posts will pop up from 1 year ago, 2 years ago, etc. A couple weeks ago, I had a “memory” pop up from something I posted 5 years ago that hit me like a ton of bricks. 5 years ago I was running a Farmer’s Market in Nashville. On a beautiful Fall day I took a photo with my assistant Carissa
3 WAYS NOT LOVING OURSELVES CONTRACTS US IN OUR RELATIONSHIPS
Last week I got to spend some beautiful time at the beach with my family. Now, I don’t know about you, but I always feel a little bit of dread when I’m going on a beach vacation. Thankfully, I was with my lovely family but I was still dealing with that dread of having to wear a bathing suit.
WHEN STAYING PRESENT SUCKS
The deepest fear that we all have is that we are not loveable, and most of us will do ANYTHING to feel loveable. This is because we don’t realize all the love we need is within us. We change, we adapt, we play small, we attract, we seduce all in attempt to have someone else PROVE to us that we are loveable. We don’t believe that we are. So, we become codependent, doing anything for our “loveable” fix.
RELEASE THE ATTACHMENT
All of the ways we “armor up” make us feel like we have some control, but in reality it takes us away from the opportunity to feel and heal what is coming up for us in the present.
Question of the day: What am I unwilling to feel?
WHAT DOES THIS MAKE POSSIBLE
Y’all, you will probably hear me repeat this phrase over and over again if you hang with me enough. I’m constantly asked to explain to people how to live a life without attachment and begin to approach everything in life with a “this or something better” attitude.
Running out the door. Slam the car door. Traffic. So much traffic! I’m going to be late.
“Story of my freaking life!” I would say to myself. “Figures. This is going to screw up my whole day.”
This was my daily attitude toward my circumstances. No matter what happened, I’d approach life with this lens, frustrated that life wasn’t going my way – until I received a simple truth.
I HATE BODY GLITTER
One of my favorite ladies, Danielle Laporte, describes joy as the fiber of your soul. And I love hearing those words because it reminds me that joy is our natural state. It’s both accessible anytime and unconditional. It is not dependent on anything or anyone. It is the true, authentic delight that you can experience at anytime despite what is happening out there in the world.
HOW GOOD CAN YOU STAND IT
“Would you like another?” my server asked. As my eyes raised, I caught a shiny glimpse of something which had the unfortunate result of triggering a reaction in yours truly. “Yes, thank you” were the words I heard coming from my mouth, but the real Mary would have said something different altogether if I didn’t have a strong filter. My server was adorned in… let’s just say no small amount of body glitter. And before you go asking yourselves why I was in a place that involved both servers and glitter, I can assure you that it was not what you may think. Ha!
“Mary, how good can you stand it?” My coach asked. It hit my heart like a deep jolt of light. Could it be that I am resisting good? Of course that doesn’t seem to make any sense, but I realized that I am holding back. Sure enough, I have put a limit of how much good I can experience and I have met my quota.
