#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.
This one question on my yoga retreat from a guest helped me shift my perspective. Hope this helps shift yours too! As always, thank you so much for being here, reviewing and sharing this podcast!
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?
My invitation to you this week for our Mantra Monday is to LISTEN and be in a receptive state, so you can hear the truth and the path. The universe is conspiring to give you all you ask. If you knew exactly what magic it has in store for you, you wouldn’t mind waiting. Trust, have faith, stay open and get ready to receive.
Stay open and let Life’s divine magic unfold for you in it’s own divine timing. Trust that everything you’re experiencing is exactly where you’re meant to be.
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. Align with your desired feeling to be magnetic to what you desire. Imagine if you invested the same amount of energy you use to doubt yourself to believe in yourself!
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.
This is a guided meditation to connect to your inner child. It is a simple and easy tool to create a ritual for yourself each day. Take 3 deep breaths. • GET QUIET + BREATHE • ASK: how are you feeling? • Label the feeling or emotion • LISTEN: What do you need me to know to support you? • At the end of your meditation, look at your photo and silently or out loud, say “You are safe, enough and loved. Self-love is a verb. It’s the nurturing of your spirit.
You don’t have to fix yourself You’re not broken. By feeling your feelings, you return to your wholeness. If you’re constantly fixing, numbing and ignoring in order to be happy, you will always be chasing this destination. Happiness is fleeting – just like any other emotion. By honoring Life’s ups and downs, being with yourself and feeling your feelings fully, you’ll be able to find happiness in the process, build worthiness in your new skills, and trust your resilience that you are brave, matur
The way we would talk to a child is so much different than we talk to our adult self. We’re harsh, judgmental and critical, but you would never be like that to a sweet young child. By connecting to the sweet little girl or boy in you, it’s easier to be kinder and softer to yourself. Creating a practice of self-forgiveness is one way you can begin to deepen your compassion towards yourself and expand your self-love. LMK if this is helpful: www.AudreySuttonMills.com.
