Before working with a fabulous client this morning via Skype, I breathed deeply into her energy and pulled a Goddess card with a message for her. The Goddess Oonagh had this insightful message “There is no need to hurry or force things to happen. Everything is occurring in perfect timing.” Does this resonate with you, as it did for her? Take time to just be. Notice what’s around you. Tune into your body, how’s it feeling, what can you hear? She knew that the message was spot on as she’s been crazy busy lately with work and not focused in her own well being. Funny that, your a human ‘being’ not human ‘doing’. Slow down and make time for yourself to recharge and ‘be’. You come first. Love you X
An empowered woman has boundaries, honours her values and has her needs met. That’s only part of the story, an empowered woman needs to use her voice to share them otherwise she feels triggered and resentful much of the time. I used to feel like a doormat years ago, I was a perpetual people pleaser, always dropping whatever I was doing to help others. I didn’t communicate my needs and so was constantly disappointed when situations didn’t go the way I wanted. Does this resonate? Take your power back and communicate your needs. People can’t read your mind ☺️
Hey love, one of the benefits of being in my mid-years is that I have found my voice. How about you? Do you feel more confident to speak your truth, even when you’re not sure how it will land with the other person? ⠀⠀ You see the more we use our voices – even when it feels uncomfortable, the easier it becomes the next time we need to speak out. ⠀⠀ The more we assert ourselves when we call out inappropriate behaviour at in our close relationships, at work, with our clients etc be it controlling, bullying, misogynistic we may have to dig deep to find our voice – but it’s there, you have it and the more you speak out loud about what you take a stand for, the easier it will become. ⠀⠀ You may have made sacrifices as a mother, but now as an empty nester, do not betray your own happiness, dreams or truth. Take a stand for YOU.
Wherever you are in your journey of life or in your business we all have times when it feels a struggle. If this is how it feels for you at the moment, just remember that you’re not alone. It’s ok to acknowledge how you really feel; don’t put on the socially acceptable ‘mask’ to hide how you’re really feeling, it’s like papering over the cracks. Reach out to a good friend to chat about how you are feeling or find a counsellor (as I did last summer when I needed some support to help me make sense of how I was feeling with my health challenges) or if you are feeling stuck – a great coach who can help you move forward. It will get better, it will get lighter, the dawn will break – it always does. Hugs Ali xx Ps. Reach out to me for support if you feel I could help, check out my ‘work with me’ packages.
It’s so easy to revert to our ‘default’ setting and play it safe. Our insecure thinking is a master at keeping us safe and small. But today, know that you’re safe, know that thing you keep thinking about doing or having is meant for you (otherwise you would be thinking about it), follow the inner guidance and soulful nudges and create the next chapter. You’ve got this! I believe in you.
