Growth Through Discomfort

beautiful struggle

A theme that has been repeating itself to me (and I have been trying to avoid quite honestly) is growth through discomfort. I generally believe that things come to you when you approach life with ease/no resistance so the idea that discomfort is required for me to grow was conflicting.  I now am able to see the broader picture where I can understand that some growth (not all growth) can only be attained through stepping outside of your comfort zone. Where the two ideas have now come together is in seeing that like all things discomfort and struggle can be seen as beautiful too. Everything in life is a matter of perspective and when you choose to search for the beauty and lesson in what it is you go through not only does the struggle/discomfort dissolve itself but you are in a place that you could only have been brought through that discomfort.

Have wonderful, growth filled day all ❤

Say Thank You-Jill Scott

“Everybody can use a little help sometimes
C’mon you know things ain’t moving right
Ask for correction
Ask for direction
Ask for protection
Since you want to feel like you’re you
Inside

Say thank you

Yeah
Say thank you
Yeah

Cause you know your request is filled
You will see
So act accordingly
Live like you believe
And say thank you”

with that said Thank You Ms. Jill Scott ❤

Morgan Carson: Affirmations of a Goddess

My friend knows that I’m into coloring as part of my active meditation practice so she sent me a free downloadable PDF of art by Morgan Carson.  It comes with three affirmations/drawings and instructions for mindful coloring.  I’m grateful to Morgan for sharing her art with the world, as such I wanted to continue sharing it.

Not only did the coloring book speak to me but I checked out her blog and ended up finding another one of my spirit friends 🙂 She understands the best things occur through interaction/co-creation with others and encourages you to connect and play with her (which I love)

Here’s one of the completed works 🙂

Peace and Love ❤

Thanks Birdie!

I have been fortunate enough to be really attuned to the universe as such the universe has been so amazing to me! I am always fortunate to come in contact with such brilliant co-creators through all of the synchronicites of my everyday life. For this reason I wanted to take the moment to send a huge amount of Love and Gratitude to Birdie R. ❤

I have always struggled with my relationship to my physical body. Before my spiritual awakening I did not treat it very kindly, they say you are always going to be your worst critic and in this case it’s 100% true. I could stand in a mirror and right from the top instead of seeing this wondrous creation that brings me the ability to experience this physical world I would see the lumps, bumps, and stretch marks; what I didn’t like, what needed to improve, and all the other negative thoughts anyone could possibly imagine.

To make a long story short at some point I decided enough was enough and that I should consider trying to be more kind and gentle with my body instead of always giving it grief. In part of that I started trying to say positive affirmations regarding my body and putting love into my water.

I then came across something written by Birdie called “I Desire Body Awareness” which brings me to why I felt the need to write this love letter. Birdie gave me the words I needed to access the beginning of a beautiful relationship with my body. I feel as if that statement opened up the missing link that I needed in order to release all resistance and negativity towards my body!! I feel wonderful in my skin and about how I look physcially which I can say for the first time in my life 🙂 I’m no longer obsessed with the number on the scale or the size of my jeans and the irony being since this soul resonance I’ve lost weight!! I will continue to love my body and treat it with care thanks again Birdie for your beautiful spirit I’m so glad to have come in contact with you 😀
