Happy May!!!!

Start off this week and new month with this meditation prompt.

This is week 2 of the new meditation series I created for you. My goal is to bust the myth that meditation isn’t for everyone. It is simply an invitation to allow yourself to be present and gain self awareness.

Remember, there is no right way to meditate. Do what feels right for you. Check out my previous post for meditation benefits and week 1 if you missed out.

17 Ways to Love Yourself

LISTEN to this post in audio. It goes more in depth. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Say no. To excuses. To people who don’t value you. To plans that don’t thrill you. Say  no.
  2. Create boundaries. It’s an act of self love. Boundaries are a healthy way of stating your needs.
  3. Carve out one day to do whatever the heck you wanna do. No excuses. No chores. No to do lists.
  4. Infuse daily inspiring rituals into your routine.
  5. Mean what you say. Whether we realize it or not, our words are powerful. Don’t send mixed messages to others by saying things you don’t actually mean.
  6. Make a list of your strengths. Whip out that list on days you are feeling less than stellar.
  7. Spend time in your safe space.
  8. Finally unpack that (emotional) baggage you’ve been carrying around.
  9. Work on passion goals you’ve been putting on the back burner.
  10. Continuously work on your growth.
  11. Stop saying “it’s not a big deal” when it clearly means something to you or “I’m fine” when you’re really not.
  12. Create art. Art isn’t only about painting or arts & crafts.
  13. Take a trip alone to explore somewhere you’ve been wanting to visit.
  14. Ask for help when you need it.
  15. Allow yourself to break down instead of staying strong all the time.
  16. Nurture the relationships that are important to you.
  17. Go after your dreams. Give yourself permission to do the unthinkable. The impossible. All of those ideas you have for a reason. Pursue them with curiosity.

Good vibes always,

Kayla

6 Reasons to Join a Virtual Book Club

society 6, book club, life coaching, coffee, reading, personal growth, mindset

WHY JOIN A VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB?
1. It’s an investment in yourself. The more you put into yourself, the more you will be open to receiving.

2. The support! We are all going through it and life gets so much easier when you have genuine people who are rooting for you because they are on their own good vibes journey.

3. Free Accountability Partners. We all know we are more likely to do something when we have someone following up with us. Not only will I be your personal cheerleader, I encourage you all to take initiative and check in with other members of this group.

4. Knowledge is power! We are what we surround ourselves with. Not only will we learn concepts and tools to help us, we will learn from each other’s struggles and encouragement.

5. It’s convenient. I’ve tried to start book clubs with no success because people have conflicting schedules. Since this group is virtual, we can meet anytime on the go. It is super easy.

6. It’s an act of self care. This isn’t going to be some stuff book club. My goal is for this to be something you look forward to. A place where we can discuss chapter topics and how it impacts our real lives.

All of this being said, head over to my Facebook group, Fierce Book Club for Creators of Personal Transformation if you love reading and have a passion for diving deep into your journey of healing and transformation. You will also get opportunities to be coached by me.

Meditation Mondays: New Series!

** Please listen to THIS recording I made for you. It is less than 5 minutes and will guide you to get started.

Meditation is simply allowing yourself the space to listen to your intuition. It’s a great tool to get the clarity you need and I created this series to introduce you to this practice so you can reap the benefits. Like I said this is a practice and so the more you do it the easier it will become.

Meditation Truths:

  • It is a great tool for clarity. We are naturally intuitive and know exactly what we need. It is a matter of quieting the chaos around you and listening to your own truth.
  • It is less complicated than you think. There is no right way to meditate. All you need is yourself and some quiet (put on headphones and listen to whatever music is soothing to you if you can’t get to a quiet place.
  • Meditation reduces stress. Stress and anxiety stems from worrying about the unknown. Learning to truly listen to your inner voice allows you the space to work out any trouble areas.
  • It may be uncomfortable at first. We are so used to going through the motions in life that we rarely stop and actually focus on being present with our bodies, our feelings. Things will probably come up for you that make you feel uncomfortable. It’s okay because growth happens in the darkness. The quiet space. Darkness is simply what we have not given light to. The words we wish to speak. The truths we wish to hear. The goals we want to go after but are afraid of.
  • Meditation grants you self awareness. You will learn so much about yourself because meditation gives you messages you’ve been avoiding or not paying attention to.
  • It is a gateway to receive messages from your spirit, inner voice, intuition, God, whatever power you believe in. In meditation I receive messages from God to guide me in my purpose.

My fave meditation tools (totally optional):

  • Cooling Eucalyptus candle (TJ Maxx usually has them for less than $7)
  • Mornings with God journal by Angel Richardson (My mentor created this guided meditation journal and I absolutely love it to keep my meditations intentional. Every day has a specific topic and prayer.)
  • Journals with quotes like this one (It’s good to jot down ideas and wisdom that come to you during meditation so you can reflect later)
  • Crystals – I LOVE how beautiful they are and how different stones hold different meanings. Crystals are solids that form by a regular repeated pattern of molecules connecting together. They are natural, as we are.  Everything holds as much meaning as you allow yourself to believe. This is one of my faves.

17 Ways to Empower Yourself

No one is born confident. We all have fears and insecurities. There are things we can do to deal with them in a way that helps us, not keep us stuck. 

  1. Write a list of things you truly love about yourself.
  2. Do something you have never done before.
  3. Incorporate daily rituals to help you prep for the day.
  4. Decide to make peace with your past once and for all.
  5. Declare what you are passionate about.
  6. Set boundaries with that person.
  7. Limit time with those that bring you down. Sometimes that someone can be you so you have to learn to be more gentle with yourself.
  8. Wake up every morning saying “I intend to…today”. It may feel silly at first but your words are powerful. This signals to your brain to gear up for the day.
  9. Change your passwords to positive words that make you feel good. #GirlBo$$ is an old fave of mine.
  10. Read a personal development book. Reading isn’t your thing? Cool, listen to a podcast or watch a Les Brown YouTube video. Expose yourself to new possibilities.
  11. Define what disempowers you and take steps to delete it from your life. This may sound drastic but guess what, you are worth it.
  12. Take responsibility for your actions. Owning up to your side of things makes you feel good because when you say “I own up to this…” or “I did that because…” it restores your power because no one can throw stuff in your face that you have already taken responsibility.
  13. Music. No explanation needed.
  14. Dress to impress…yourself. Wearing clothes that make you feel good shifts your mood. You start walking taller and act more confidently which allows you to actually be present around people because you aren’t busy thinking about how uncomfortable or insecure you feel.
  15. Talk to yourself. When you are feeling like you can’t do something or you feel nervous. Allow your inner Queen or King to come out and give yourself a pep talk. Sometimes you just need to say “Pull yourself together cause you got this.”
  16. Say No. No to invitations that drain you just thinking about it. No to people who don’t respect.
  17. Say Yes. To new beginnings that give your tummy butterflies. Say yes to people who value you. Yes to opportunities that bring you growth.

17 Things I’ve Learned as a Single Gal

  1. Just because you miss having a partner doesn’t mean you need one.
  2. There is so much freedom and confidence that comes with making decisions for yourself without having to think how it affects a significant other.
  3. Just because someone looks good on paper doesn’t mean he/she is your person.
  4. It can get boring. And lonely at times.
  5. You experience mixed emotions just as if you are in a relationship with someone else. The relationship you have with yourself is just as emotional, if not more.
  6. No matter how hard you try, someone’s feelings get hurt. Try not to be reckless with someone else’s heart. And forgive yourself if you do.
  7. You learn about all the things you don’t want in a relationship when observing other couples.
  8. Your goals catch fire in the best way.
  9. Being single gives you so much confidence. You question less and get really clear on who or what you want in your life.
  10. Singledom is necessary before meeting your husband/wife.
  11. Your happiness meter is solely based on you.
  12. You are forced to take a look under the hood which means you learn oh so much about your own strengths and struggles.
  13. Every single person is terrified of being vulnerable. You just have to find the right person worth opening up to.
  14. You’re not really single if you end up in situationships. You know what I’m talking about.
  15. I am still figuring out what the heck I want. And that’s okay.
  16. You can reinvent yourself every single day. There is no one checking you.
  17. Your spiritual side comes out full force. And it tells you what you have always known: the person you have been searching for is yourself.
I will tell you one thing I didn’t learn. What dating actually means. It can be very confusing this day and age. I don’t believe the hype when people say everyone is only looking to hook up though. I have met some amazing people who are interested in a genuine relationship. My advice to you is simple: Be honest. Communicate exactly what you are about. If you don’t know, learn about yourself first. No one can fault you for being true to your word.

17 Reasons To Speak Your Truth

I always say you can speak your truth with courage and kindness. It is all in your delivery. Yes, tone matters. Yes, language is important. Your voice matters. And it’s time to shed the people pleasing layers and share what you know has been buried in your soul. Your light.
There are so many reasons to acknowledge and put voice to your truth. Here are 17 of them:
  1. Because it’s healing.
  2. Suppressed feelings control your subconscious until you acknowledge them.
  3. Because compromising your principles is no longer an option.
  4. People will never get to know who you are if you tell them only what they want to hear.
  5. Someone who confidently owns up to their desires regardless of the possibility of rejection is very attractive.
  6. Standing in your truth is one of the bravest things in the world.
  7. Because it makes you a leader. When you share your story, it creates a safer space for others to share their truth.
  8. Owning your truth is an act of power no one can take from you.
  9. Being honest about how you feel will increase your self value which then limits the bullshit you are willing to take.
  10. Your truth leads you to your purpose.
  11. Because lying about what you are going through leads to more stress, heartbreak and false identity.
  12. Your truth is unique. Absolutely no one is you so sharing who you are makes you stand apart from the crowd in a positive light.
  13. It’s liberating. When you open your heart and voice your truth, you make room for new opportunities to pour into your life. When you are honest about your values, your feelings and where you stand on important issues you tend to weed out the blocks in your life. In return, you attract exactly what you need for growth.
  14. Sharing your truth makes people trust you and see you as reliable.
  15. It makes you relatable which fosters connection. No one is perfect. Your strengths, struggles and story will touch others in a similar situation.
  16. Expressing your truth is a pillar in living a life of passion, happiness and authenticity.
  17. Because it’s time. Now is your time. Dig deep and immerse yourself in your beautiful mess. Your journey of growth into your fiercest, bravest and most beautiful self.
