As you prepare your goals for the new year, first take a moment to REFLECT: how far you've come this year? What you've overcome? what you're appreciating about yourself and then embody that Gratitude. Appreciation cultivates more joy. It brings you back to the present moment. It propels you into the future of what you want to attract and call into your life. Gratitude is the portal for creating the life you desire and deserve.
In today's episode I share my personal struggle with my husband about expectations, disappointments and how to stay open to learn the lesson so we can heal and communicate through a place of healthy self respect, boundaries and love. MANTRA: when you're triggered by someone, can you look deeper at you expectations of this person? What is underneath that layer of disappointment and what is it teaching you? Our relationships are mirrors to heal parts of ourselves.
For many of us, 2020 has been one big fat disappointment, filled with loss, cancelations, and grief. what you place your attention on expands. Take a moment to think about where you’re spending your energy? You thoughts? Your actions? Your worries? Even though 2020 brought much disappointment and loss, there’s still so much to be grateful for. Instead of placing your attention on what hasn’t or isn’t working, place it on an areas in your life you want to expand.
#2020 has been a wild ride, filled with a lot of disappointment, loss, and pivoting. It’s probably unearthed a lot of emotions that you’ve had to work with too. Today’s episode is about elevating your emotional state to obtain your desired dreams. You'll learn how to have to have a clear intention + elevated emotional state to reach your desired outcome and how you want to feel.
Instead of doing what you normally do to avoided discomfort, and letting the task pile up or waiting for motivation, harness inspiration by taking intentional action now, and do it consistently. Take your goal one easy step at a time. This week's mantra is take it one step at a time, one very doable step at a time, and do it consistently.

In the darkness is where things grow. By embracing our darkness, our duality, we can discover our light. What needs to die for you to birth your desired dreams? What stories needs to shed in order to transform?

On the podcast, I'll share 4 steps to help pull you out of a comparison rut and realign you to be magnetic to what you desire: 1. Notice the driftwood and say thank you 2. Acknowledge 3 things that are working in your life to shift into abundance 3. Take inspiration from those who have what you desire 4.

In a world where we’re taught that thinner is better and being younger is more desirable, it’s hard for us to push through that noise and be stronger than societies expectations. My intention for my post was to inspire women to love themselves, not degrade themselves. Feelings come and go, and all feelings are normal and valid. It’s how you choose to respond to them that matters. I hope today's episode helps you extend more grace and compassion to yourself.
To celebrate episode 100 Today on the Soul School podcasts, I talk with Donte Quinine, a Tedx speaker, life coach and yoga leader about spirituality and racial injustice. As a yoga instructor and spiritual teacher, his intention is to help people awaken to their own spirit and potential that he believes exists within everyone. Donte invites you to get quiet, get curious, be honest and ask deeper questions about what triggers you to receive deeper answers.
Although we can learn tactics for building self-love, sometimes we get stuck of how to actually put these tools into practice. It’s tough to rewire our brain patterns. This week’s mantra is when you get into conflict with yourself, ask: “what would someone who truly loved themselves do?” to help you shift out of your head and into your heart. www.AudreySuttonMills.co,
Shadows are a dark part of our personality that we often want to hide because it brings us shame. One tool is to give the shadow a personal name to help ease the self-inquiry process and help you stay open to learning about yourself so you can let go of judgment and be there for yourself to learn the lesson. Only when we can be with our uncomfortable feelings, then we can learn from them what they are trying to show us.
You have learned beliefs and patterns that you bring into your relationships with each other and yourself. Nothing is new. As children we’re very good at being in tune with our environment and very good at protecting ourselves to feel safe. Even if you had a good childhood, you learned ways of how to act by watching your caregivers, parents, siblings, cousins and their behaviors, beliefs and expectations. Reparenting is the act of giving yourself what you needed as a child.
