Confide in Yourself: Standing in YOUR Truth

Confide in Yourself: Standing in YOUR Truth

Confidence comes from belief. Adding ‘self’ as a prefix on both the words can perhaps offer a better explanation.

To be confident is not to succeed at it. Yes, confidence is vital to achieving success but not the finality of it. To be confident is to be positive about taking risks and simply, pulling it off. 😉

But what if it’s you against everybody else?

The Psyche behind confidence and that against it

To simply frame an example of confidence, let’s consider someone about to step on a stage for the first time and deliver a speech or performance.

 They may have everything written as well as, hours of practice in front of the mirror. There is both the ability and the practice.

Apprehension is a given trail of thought for the common human mind. They may feel apprehensive about the impending performance expected of them, but if they believe, the chances of success increase and lead to a higher state of functional ability. This belief is confidence.

When it comes to an idea, confidence, or the lack of it, is internalized. For instance, you may consider an idea inconclusive. However, you may be the only individual in a group of 100 to believe so. As such, you may be compelled to re-think and doubt your own perception of the idea.

Confidence is when you believe in the idea regardless of everything. This is exactly what may happen when shifting to a new paradigm, a new direction in life. Finding your voice, can be scary when others may not agree. Step into the new territory anyway. To be happy, you have to be YOU!

Build and Re-build Your Confidence

It is a state of mind which helps you believe in yourself, in your ability to succeed at your dream and typically achieve the best results of any situation.

Rekindle your mind. Reinvigorate your self-belief with essential oils such as Frankincense and Valor that can ground you in your belief or path with confidence. Crystals like Blue Apatite, Amazonite, Sunstone can support you for those situations where you feel you need extra support and confidence as well.

I find by supplying myself with the right supplements to support me physically as well as surrounding myself with the right crystals and oils, will in turn support me emotionally as well. Between my red juice, daily immune support and staying alkaline, I feel stronger both physically and emotionally.

I have researched and put together an eBook full of essential oil and crystal info for support on this path.  If you would like it, for assistance in moving closer to your life’s purpose, then simply reach out to me for a copy.  It’s yours!

I am grateful for you! Perhaps you can move one step closer to knowing your Creative Voice solid and standing in that truth. ~Let your every step from now on resonate with confidence!

Move Beyond the Given Norms and Break the Glass Ceiling

Move Beyond the Given Norms and Break the Glass Ceiling

When the shackles of thy societal burdens constraint your wings,

when you gasp for breath

when you feel oblivion seeping in

know it’s time for the chains to disappear,

know it’s time to feel the wind on your wing again…

Systems are put in place to regularize processes, norms and outcomes. Often, these norms are self-imposed by unanimous consensus of numerous personalities, or, even by just one, with a higher point of authority, or so they think. Ironically, the latter, is also decided by the majority.

This is the basic functional psyche of society, although there are multiple levels and combinations of the process.

How do you fit into it? …Or do you?

Breaking the Obvious

You may not feel like mingling with the often obvious invisible social patterns. Why?

For example; you are incapable of gelling with the surroundings and should consider failure as a step towards success through struggle. Doing something outside the norm is not failing. It’s another step towards your success in discovering what’s really important to you and what you want to do in life.

Or, you are above the given systems and patterns; you are capable to ideate and realize the next progression to what the society should be thinking or doing.

When you feel, you know it in your guts that you are right, trust your instincts. Stay firm. Do not flinch from your conscience. Following along in the crowd does not serve you most importantly, but it really does not serve others either especially when you are not sharing your gifts.

Journaling and Breaking Set Patterns

It is difficult for a single individual to harbor a perspective which is in complete contrast to all other individuals in your surroundings. If you feel you are in a similar scenario, your resistance has also created multiple defense mechanisms inside you, leaving a tell-tale mark.

These are the set patterns you need to point out and break.

Tips to journal and –

  • Note what happened as it did. Do away the defensive barriers.
  • Find your pace, your flow. Be blatantly honest with yourself.
  • Do not refrain from admitting and re-admitting regrets.

Now read and re-read. You will find the patterns of thought, your thoughts. Self-assess. Ideate a situation of how you can break this rooted issue. Add mediation to the routine, e.g. – Vipassana, Yoga, Qigong, Holosync etc.  This can help you gain clarity and break free.

THIS WEEKS FACEBOOK POSTS ON CREATIVELY LISA PAGE ARE ON JOURNALING ~ SO YOU CAN FIND GREAT TIPS THERE AS WELL!

Using specific essential oil blends for transformation and brain power can stimulate you through the process and crystals like Smoky Quartz, Aquamarine, Petrified Wood, etc. will really give you that extra support for a boost in your inner growth.  Inspire yourself to break beyond obvious patterns.

During these times of paradigm shifts, busting through old patterns and letting go of old belief systems, I find using the right supplements to support me physically can also support me mentally and emotionally. I am happy to share what has worked for me if you are looking for that assistance as well! 😀  The key really is taking care of yourself and giving your body all the support possible so you can break free…

I have researched and put together an eBook full of essential oil and crystal info for support on this path.  If you would like it, for assistance in moving closer to your life’s purpose, then simply reach out to me for a copy.  It’s yours!

I am grateful for you! Perhaps you can move one step closer to knowing your Creative Voice solid and standing in that truth. Let your every step from now on resonate with assurance.

Rekindle Yourself Holistically – Mind Body and Soul…  Clarity Through Hormone Balance

Rekindle Yourself Holistically – Mind Body and Soul… Clarity Through Hormone Balance

What our mind thinks, our brain believes…

Although our sensory perceptions are guided by
the brain, our perspective is decided by the mind, a non-quantifiable entity without any
physical existence.

Psychology is central to our behaviour, to our whole existence as human beings per se.
External stimuli do play a pivotal role in directing it, but the internal stimuli, the physiological disruption can be underlying stealthy issue without realizing it.

Earlier last year, I was going through a lot of external struggles, so I thought… This went on for months with the struggles, negative thinking, not “feeling like doing anything”. I was in a hole and I was coming to the conclusion that if it continued this way, “what was the point?” I was done. I’ve never thought that way ever before in my life and realized that it was not really me. So I reached out to a close friend that was in my business and had much more knowledge of everything and also was a healer. She asked me about my hormones and that what I was going through seemed more of an imbalance hormonally. I needed to be using this product she had mentioned many times before.  Now mind you I knew about the product specifically and had “tried it” a couple of time and felt better. (I just didn’t thing “I” needed it!)  The funny thing was, I had actually even suggested it to a couple people that were getting amazing results, yet I didn’t realize I needed it.

It was a completely plant-based hormone balancer. It was a product that helped balance my hormones naturally. I asked how long it would take for it to start taking affect and she thought it would take at least 3 to 4 days. I called my friend and she immediately came over. I borrowed enough until my order would arrive. I noticed a difference in my thoughts and how I was feeling within 4 hours. I was seeing results by the time I put on my second application the following day and by that evening, I was right as rain. Back to the real me, the me I had remembered with energy, positive outlook, creative ideas and that type A-Go Get Em personality.

Hormone imbalance is now considered more common than ever before. With all the chemicals in use, it causes disruptions in our hormones.  What’s more important to note, new research suggests that psychological imbalances are more related and can be better diagnosed from the purview of hormonal imbalances.

A Hormonal Yin Yang 
Negativity, lack of clarity, lack of energy and desperate exaltation, these are common sub-conscious traits amongst
most of us. If you are conscious about such characteristics within you, chances are you might just as well be struggling to come to terms with them. It could be hormonal and not the “real” you.

You must ground yourself, gain a more incisive and unbiased perspective about life, and embark on a journey of positivity and harmony. Striking a balance in your life may be your first goal. Perhaps it not about meditation
or medication, at least not the necessary discourse of either.

Healing the effects of imbalance to that aspect of your body, which directs your mind and your soul. Take some time for yourself, research hormone imbalances and options*, listen to that little voice inside guiding you. These are important steps in balance and Finding Your Voice!

Hormones affect you and vice versa. So rebalance the You with the right set of stimuli and strike the necessary balance of hormones you need.

Essential oils and Crystals can help stimulate your mind and body to feel better. For example, there are essential oil blends that can support you in balancing hormonally. This in combination with Crystals, like Moonstone & Labradorite that balances hormones  or Pietersite that balances the endocrine system and production of hormones.

Elevate the procedure with other activities and products that can support you through this enlightening process like Stress Away Baths that nurture YOU. Take time to listen to yourself always

Born from chaos, meant to trickle down peace in souls, find the soul of Yin and Yang, and
you will find Harmony…

What Can You Ask Yourself To Gain Clarity in Uncovering Your Purpose? 10 Questions That Will Help You Find Your Voice

What Can You Ask Yourself To Gain Clarity in Uncovering Your Purpose? 10 Questions That Will Help You Find Your Voice

Early on when I was figuring out what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it, I found myself chasing the next best “sure thing.” I would copy what some successful person was doing.  The problem was that what worked for them did not work for me nor did it feel right.  I always felt something was missing in my approach, my path in how I was doing it and it did NOT feel fun. It felt grueling. I know if I could “figure it out”, I would be successful, it would be fun and resonate with others.  The whole reason I chose to do “my own thing” was for the fun and freedom of it, which is why most people desire it. This is exactly why people start steering away from the traditional JOB path.

You know what a cover band is? A cover band is a band that plays other people’s music, and they often fill music venues and make money, but at the end of the night people go home singing the music. Cover bands are often quickly forgotten, but the music lives on. In the Accidental Creative Podcast, they closed off with the phrase “cover bands don’t change the world – you need to find your unique voice if you want to thrive.”

This doesn’t mean that imitation is always wrong. In fact, “faking it to making it” is an important part in discovering who you are and most importantly who you are NOT.  I realized quickly that this path was certainly not a short-cut to success. It was actually the opposite. It may work short term, but the success will be hollow, short lived, and without a foundation. It will come crashing down. In order to add lasting, meaningful value for ourselves and others, we must – eventually – find our own creative voice.

But how do we do that? With the pressures and demands of daily life and work, it can often be overwhelming simply to deliver on expectations, let alone to discover some unique way of engaging in our life. Finding the quietness to hear our inner voice and discover who we really are is the space we need. But it’s often in the midst of our work that we will find the best clues for our deeper, resonant vocation. The sources of both “voice” and “vocation” are close to the Latin word vocare, which means “to call, or invoke”. Our voice is the thing that is being called out of us in the midst of our work. It is the underlying why of our passion, even if we’ve never considered it.

We must actively search for our voice, and clear a path for it to emerge fearlessly. It is uncovered, not manufactured. It has always been there. We may not even like what we discover at first, but by embracing it, we will position ourselves to occupy the unique space for which we’re wired.

Here are a few questions that may help uncover clues to finding your voice

Set aside some time with a notebook or journal to reflect on each:  *Tip: Have a flourite stone near you and diffuse an essential oil blend for clarity when you begin.

What angers you? Every superhero needs a bad guy. Without one, the super hero has nothing to fight against. Are there specific things that evoke a compassionate anger in you? (Key point of differentiation: this is not about road rage, poor service, or leaving dog’s poop on the ground.) We’re talking about the systemic things that evoke a desire to intervene in a situation as an act of compassion or to rectify a great wrong.) For me this came about in seeing people miserable at a traditional job wanting something different for themselves. The old paradigm was no longer working and change needed to happen for people to truly live in their heart space and be happy.

What makes you cry? Think about the last several instances that caused you to cry. Movies are fair game too. I’ve noticed that I almost always tear up when I see people become deflated and the excitement leaves their being, they just exist. I also find that seeing stories of people overcoming incredible odds and succeeding in a huge way inspire tears as well. This is a clue that my greatest work may be somehow involved with being a light and inspiring those who are searching for alternative change in their lives.

What are you really good at or super knowledgeable about?  What is a no-brainer? Are there tasks, skills, or opportunities that you have simply mastered and can do without thinking? These low-friction activities might give you a clue to ways you can continue pursuing your voice. We learn through action, observation, then correction. Start with what you do well, and work your way toward your goal.

What sets you on fire? What are you passionate about and enjoy? What do you look forward to? What great vision do you have for your future and the future of others? This is a powerful motivator & can give you a clue to ways in which you may be able to compel others to act.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? We often forget the earliest clues to our voice as we are burdened with the expectations of peers, teachers, parents, and eventually the marketplace. But those early days of wonder – the vast expanses of horizon that hint at limitless possibility – can give us insight into the deeper seeds of fascination that still reside within us. So…what did/do you want to be when you grow up?

If you wave a magic wand and anything was possible and you had all the time and money in the world, what would you do? It astounds me how can’t even think that large and few people ask themselves this question, and it astounds me more how few people can arrive at an answer when they do. We believe that a lack of resources is the obstacle to our happiness and fulfillment, but for many of us the limitation has nothing to do with a lack of money or time. The limitation is our fear of falling short of our own self-perception. We point fingers at others because we can’t reconcile our own fear of engagement. We don’t think about limitless possibility because we are afraid of what would happen if we were to get it.

What would blow your mind? (Thanks to Mike Dooley TUT for this one.) Take about an hour to list 30 things that would blow your mind if they happened. Around about number 20 is where things start getting tough, keep going! You will quickly discover how many limitations you actually put on yourself without even realizing. Still keep going! List out every thing that would thrill you if it were to happen, including relational things, business things, travel, ambitions, hopes, etc. This is something to do at least once a year and you will see it stretching each time. I have looked back over my lists and see how many was actually accomplished, which fuels you to keep going! It’s a great way to identify patterns of inspiration and what motivates you.

What platform do you enjoy most and spend more time on? Audio, video or text? I love audio and video and find doing LIVES and videos fun. You don’t need to start over. Go with what is already working for you and build on that. What foundation can you grow and begin to affect the kind of change you’d like to see? You must “do it to see it!”

What change would you like to see in the world? If you could identify one canalyst, domino as it were – one thing that would change many – what would it be? What would be different about the world because you lived? Be fearless and think big, be specific. This goes for relationships as well. The most significant change we have the ability to make is that in the lives of others, always pay it forward.

If this was your last day on this planet, how would you spend it? If you knew that you would disappear at midnight, how would you spend your last day on earth? What questions would you ask? Who would you spend time with? What work would you do? Again, this is an interesting way to begin identifying patterns within your passions, skills, and experiences and expertise.

In order to add lasting, meaningful value in our our lives and the world around us, we must – find our own voice. Others will miss out without your creative voice.

Your Voice, YOU are needed. You are not disposable, your contribution in the world is not discretionary. Do not abdicate your contribution. If you do, you will spend the final days of your life wishing you’d treated your time here with more purpose. Today, here, now, in this moment, be fearless and decide to uncover your voice and begin acting to effect change in your life, thereby, this world. You may be reluctant to accept the role that you play, but do it anyway.  Don’t die with your music still in you. Die empty. We must all Step Into Purpose & Live Outside the Lines.

Finding Your Voice… 7 Steps To Spark Clarity & Inspiration

Finding Your Voice… 7 Steps To Spark Clarity & Inspiration

People often wonder how they can tell if the “voice” they hear during meditation is the divine whisper of the universe or simply their ego. So often we drive ourselves crazy asking ourselves why we can’t hear or over where the voice is coming from. We ask ourselves such maddening questions as, “Whose voice is it anyway?” “Is it my authentic voice?” and “How can I let my voice be heard through the choir of voices that surround me each day?” or “Is it real?”

 

To me, these feel like distractions in the true quest to discover our creative voice.  Gaining clarity during this total confusion is a must. I found that when I utilized essential oils and crystals during this time, clarity and inspiration came through. The synergistic balance and grounding effects of Flourite with this clarifying essential oil blend can really move you into a place of peace, presence and power.  Clarity flows through.

 

I believe there are many paths to oneness, and certainly many paths to finding your voice in a given moment. So many of us live lives of quiet desperation — deferring our dreams or using the excuses of time, money or others as why we aren’t expressing our unique gifts, our special talents or living into our heart space. We must step into our purpose by finding our voice for when we do that we truly have freedom and lift others in the process.

 

To cut through the swirl, so you can most effectively find your voice, here are seven steps that truly moved me forward and my hope is that it will help guide you, also. Use one, all, or any combination of the seven to spark your voice:

 

  • Accept that you are unique and have a special voice that is overflowing with creative possibilities. As the divine sweeps into you with each breath, give permission to the five unique parts of your being — your mind, body, soul, heart and spirit. Open these magnificent gifts and see how they can be applied to your life right now.
  • Regularly spend time in stillness and silence. A minimum of at least 15 minutes each day so you can quiet the fluctuations of your mind and ease the emotional turbulence in your life. From that stillness, the answers will come. I use a program called Holosync and found amazing results that have cleared a pathway. There are also a couple of Apps, Synctuition and Calm,  that will allow you to set the time.
  • Cultivate your ability to slow down and listen to the world around you. Daily meditation leads to heightened awareness. What excites you? What angers you? What makes you cry? What gives you hope? What gets you passionate? What gets your motor running? Listen to your emotions throughout the day and feel what moves you.
  • Tap into your passion overlap. Bubbling below our surface, are our own personal desires to love with passion, to live with passion, to learn with passion, to thrive with passion and to add value to the moment — to contribute passionately. So where’s your voice? Identify the overlap between those five desires and you’ll find the seed of your voice!
  • Get really objective. See yourself from another perspective. Take out your journal and write about yourself in the third person. Pretend you are someone else and look at yourself as you would a character in a book and write about what inspires that person and how they will make a mark on the world. When you’ve been writing for a bit, flip it around, make the character yourself, and see how your voice unfolds.  No limits or boundaries when doing this is key.
  • After you’ve meditated for a few minutes, place your hand on your heart and ask: “Where am I holding back?” “Why?” “In what instances am I biting my tongue?” “Where could I speak up a bit more?” “Where would I step into the unknown with more power?” “If I knew I would not fail, what would be my baby step?”
  • Find someone who really believes in you. A teacher, a mentor, a confirmer and a coach — someone who sees your strengths, validates your gifts. Someone you respect and supports your dream.  Always listen to your heart.

Often we believe that time or money are the impediments for fulfilling our dreams or finding our voice, but in reality we fear we will not live up to our vision or, worse, THAT WE WILL. So take baby steps. Listen to that little voice inside you that say “you can.” Start where you are, and give yourself permission to speak from your heart. Remember, all the answers rest within. Be gentle and the answers will come from a place of stillness and silence. Then fearlessly, let your voice be heard! That’s when FREEDOM begins.  You can read the main post from last month that is our topic for this whole month, Crystal Clear Inspiration-Using Essential Oils & Crystals to Gain Clarity in Find your voice.
