Speaking from the heart is hard, and, though it may not seem that way at first, demands bravery.
It can be a struggle to say what you think and to share your feelings. Most people would rather avoid topics close to their hearts in day-to-day conversations. The fear of rejection or of being judged is just too great.
But I always believe when you decide to speak from your heart, you will be guided to use the right language. Try it out.
Life can be terrifying at times. But we often stop ourselves leaping into the unknown because we’re paralyzed by fear. But there’s no need for that sort of meekness. If you find yourself too afraid to take the plunge, then you may miss out on opportunities to turn your life around for the better. You could end up going without your dream job, losing the chance to start up your own business, living in despair for the rest of your life because you never published your books or even overlooking potential love interests.
There’s no need to give in to fear if you try to face small fears every month. Think about what you want to do and break down the fears to smaller tiny fears. If you want to to start a new career, talk to people who are already doing what you want to do and ask what they like the most about their jobs. Talk to other authors to see what the biggest obstacles are to become a published author and get the energy ball rolling in your favour. You have to take actions steps towards your dream of nothing will happen and you have to follow through until you can see the results you want.
I have been very busy lately but I have still continued doing art. But I felt disconnected at some level and took some inventory on what it could be that I am missing. I miss the magic and the connection with my higher self. Took Stella for a walk at a park where the ocean is on both sides and when it's windy if feels you are going through a tumbler of amazing energy. The wind is going through your body and you feel so cleansed after walking 'the runway'. Stella almost got swept away in the wind!
So I started thinking about bringing more of that energy in my everyday life so I took out my tuning forks and started using them in my home. It felt amazing and I was grounded again, this really changed my frequency to a higher level. Then I started thinking how I can incorporate this high frequency in my paintings so I started using the tuning forks on my canvases and my art workplace. I used different intentions on some of my paintings and infused tuning fork energy work on canvases I will paint on and thus far the results have been amazing. So when people buy or I gift a painting to somebody they will have this energy in their home which will lift up their space! Love this idea and I am running with it because I want to share this with others too <3
As long as we focus on an outside connection to bring us happiness there will always be an empty, hungry, lost place inside that needs to be filled. The source of love and joy is already within me. Connecting with that source you will never truly feel alone, and you can connect with your inside by reading a book, join a book club, walk in nature, do yoga, meditate, listen to your heart and intuition, pray or make amazingly wonderful brewed coffees for others. It is all about connecting with your inner soul and with other souls~soul connections! But remember all you need is within you. Keep it simple, but keep going until your find your inner light, the world needs to feel and see your light so please share your illuminated self with others.
Are you secure in your own skin? Does your body feel like home? Do you listen to your body's intuition? Can you handle any hardships that the world is presenting to you? Do you listen to your deepest needs and then follow up with self-care? Then you have mastered to live comfortably in your own skin and you are able to handle the struggles around you without freaking out. Home will always be with you — it is where the heart is. Find your tribe and vibe the shit out of what is called life, because life can be hard. Pay it forward and don't forget to love it forward to others. Helping others is really the only way to find what you are looking for.
"Emotional intelligence is widely recognized as a valuable skill that helps improve communication, management, problem-solving, and relationships within the workplace. It is also a skill that researchers believe can be improved with training and practice."
But I think a combination of IQ and EQ are necessary in order to manage a large team. The best managers I have had are those who are working for the team and not there to be valued as a great manager from others. Being a straight forward leader will increase less confusion on what the leader wants from the team. If the leader wants to be adored by others then the person may not be able to meet the necessary work criteria and deadlines.
On the other hand as I am reading some articles, I agree to the most valuable characteristic is self-awareness. Are you a person who always complains about everything and as a result you all of a sudden does not have many colleagues coming to chat? Do you feel excluded? You can change your vibe if you are willing to change. If you take some inventory on your personality and what energy you bring to a room you may be able to change your attitude and therefore people may be more open to have a coffee chat again.
People say take that leap of faith, go out on a limb and fly, but what if that does not sit well, if it doesn't feel right deep, deep down in your soul, than that is not your path at this time. When you are ready to take that leap of faith there is no second guessing, fear thoughts or anxiety. When you are ready, you will feel that confidence in your heart and in your stomach because you are being guided to go down that path. You are being shown by a higher power to take that risk and there is no need to push that hard forward.
When you are ready, there will be a flow and you will feel that knock on your shoulder that it is time to move on. But you have to prepare for this, which means that you do have to take steps, take risks, do the work, read those books, being vulnerable and raw, accept your insecurities, take a look at what holds you back, unleash your perfectionism, research and work hard. That is how you prepare for the bigger life changing decisions!
PTSD is more common than we think and it can be extremely hard on the person who has it. I heard about this technique and I am curious if it is working for people. Send me a message if you have any knowledge about TRE. Here is a youtube video explaining it:
When you focus on love everything will be love. Or at least more romantic and grounded in loving feelings. Love is giving. Love is sharing. Love is extending oneself to another. We are all one and not separated. Let your day be filled with love for yourself, and love will pour through you for others. It will remember who you are, and allow you to be the conduit for healings and miracles. Happy thanksgiving!
When it rain it pours in a good way right now. Busy can be really good, I get stuff done and I don't have time to analyze paralyze. Time to rise and keep on moving!
