I see that important project you want to launch out into the world sitting on your computer desk. Maybe it’s half finished, maybe you’re afraid to press publish or maybe it’s still an idea in your head. I bet you thought you were being lazy. That you don’t want it bad enough, it’s not your time or simply you don’t have your shit together – clue it’s not that.
You procrastinate, put it off, make excuses, decide that the dishwasher definitely needs to be unpacked right now and cannot wait another minute. But guess what you aren’t lazy, you’re not procrastinating. Did you ever stop to think that your procrastinating is actually because you are terrified of your own perfectionist tendencies and they are holding you back.
Let me paint the scene.
My head has seriously been spinning as of late. I recently moved apartments and I couldn’t think straight, between boxes everywhere, packing, unpacking, getting my period, familiarising myself with a new area and home, like’s felt chaotic. Not to mention finishing the Beautiful Business Mastermind and starting my Yoga Teacher Training soon, as well as going full time within my own business it’s safe to say I was all over the place, couldn’t figure out my up from down and generally feeling funky.
This showed up in life as a short fuse, complaining about everything, being restless, but not being able to stop and take a break.
I couldn’t shake it.
On the weekend I had the absolute pleasure of attending Sian Pascale‘s Urban Goddess Day Retreat all about the Divine Feminine. To say this women is a moving goddess would be accurate. I recently attended her Winter Solstice Yoga Practice that left me feeling so aligned and clear within my own body that I knew I wanted to attend more of her events.
Lesson number one, get out there and connect with people who are doing cool epic shit that you want to be apart of.
As of late I’ve been really called to dive deeper into these goddess archetypes. A couple of days before the divine feminine workshop I attended Julie Parker‘s first Sacred Sister Circle all about the Great Mother, mother earth. At this sacred circle Julie spoke that from the Great Mother Goddess all other goddesses were born from and so I knew it was fitting to learn and speak of my connection with her first.
Have you ever been afraid to ask for more of what you want? You seem to think that you already have so much that you love in your life, so maybe you aren’t deserving of more?
I’ve been thinking about this concept a lot lately. I keep feeling like my life is so good, how could I possibly ask for more? How could I possibly believe that I deserve more? Am I worthy of it?
That inner voice, my ego says to me ‘you should be happy with what you’ve got’.
Desire statements have been with me as long as my favourite rose quartz necklace has. My clients love crafting desire statements to help them achieve, reach and manifest what they want in your life. I do too!
This process started out as something that I learnt from Gabrielle Bernstein. Somewhere along the way it has become so engrained in who I am and apart of what I teach. I’ve taught it in my group coaching programs, at my in person workshops and speak about it a little with my 1-1 clients. Truth be told, my coaching is more reserved for the action of truly helping these desires come true.
Let me give you the run down on what desire statements are, why I love them and how they can help you. I’ve also created a really cool worksheet to help you craft your own desire statement which I provide to my workshop groups.
