I chose self love when...
--I gave up the things which no longer lit me up inside.
--I stopped after one suicide attempt.
--I demanded I go to therapy.
--I snuck out of a verbally abusive relationship.
--I stopped hanging out with people who didn't care even half as much about me as I did them.
--I sat in my car alone at lunch in high school to protect myself from negative energy and feelings I was left with.
--I stopped putting up with men cheating on me or lying to me.
--I looked in the mirror and chose to start taking care of my body.
--I turned down party invites which made me feel hurt and uncomfortable
--I stopped allowing people to guilt trip me into doing things for them or 'because they needed me' when in reality they just didn't feel comfortable on their own and would ignore or neglect me when they felt comfortable.
--I stopped putting up with an environment full of people who didn't 'get' me.
--I started my health and fitness journey and got a job as a coach to pay for my gym membership
--I started sleeping more and adjusted my schedule after almost crashing my car from nearly nodding off to sleep
--I started cooking healthy meals and pushing my body past its limits.
--I stopped allowing people to make me feel obligated and started allowing myself to trust what I truly felt and gave myself the power to say no.
--I allowed myself to realize I had an unhealthy relationship with food even when I was at my most fit physique.
--I allowed myself to heal.
--I invested over $30k in my personal development in one year.
--I wanted to rest and sleep instead of going to the gym because I knew I'd be too out of it to even benefit.
--I listened and trusted my heart and quit a sport I played for my whole life and even signed to play in college so I could pursue what truly made me happiest.
--I continuously follow what makes me happiest, not what is 'right' to others.
--I allowed myself to love and be loved completely
--I focused on my bodies health and function over its look and shape.
--I could have given everything up and gone the 'easy' way which in my mind would have been so much harder.
I don't need to continuously go on and share EVERY time I chose self love. Because, the truth is, I choose self love everyday, in every moment.
No, it is not always easy.
And yes, I do sometimes fail.
No, it does not require painful work.
Yes, it does require deep healing, releasing, liberation and creation.
No, it doesn't have to wait until x,y,or z happens.
Yes, you can love yourself RIGHT NOW.
It comes down to a choice. A decision. An identity shift that you are no longer a person who loathes, rather you are a person who loves.
I am hosting a Self-Love Creation and Self-Loathe Liberation workshop.
We will be diving deep into:
---Discovering More ways to Love Yourself
---The Difference Between Affirmations and Actions and how to find a Healthy Balance between the two which Supports your growth.
---Digging Deep into WHY it's important to love yourself more for YOU not my why, or so and so's why, YOUR why.
---Daily Mindset Ritual to Align with your Souls inner beauty and warmth while setting you up for a successful day.
---Specific Self-Love exercises will be walked through during this live workshop
There will also be time for questions of course!
This will be fun, exciting, deep, and potentially quite revealing for yourself.
I am so excited for the people who have already enrolled and locked in their spot.
This workshop would normally run for $97 but I am offering it for $20 for the next 6 days because I want to empower as many people to join as possible so we can empower others since 10% of every registration will be donated to the YMCA-Miller Family and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County
If you know this is something you could really use right now, why hold back any longer?
It is no coincidence this opportunity was placed in front of you today...

My heart and soul have been expanding on levels I have never experienced before.
I have been becoming even more aware.
My consciousness has been on the rise like crazy.
My inner voice has been leading me, pulling me, nudging me, and loving me so much more lately.
I've been listening and trusting so much more and it's magical what shifts I've been able to make.
I am feeling more deeply again.
I am opening my eyes to things I have shut off or pushed down.
I am realizing and releasing.
I have taken the time to list out the things which I must focus on healing.
I had been aware of them but never allowed myself to truly highlight them and go yep this needs some work.
But I am now. Because I know it's what I need and what I deserve.
I have been following this incredible woman the past few months. She and I connected awhile back through a mentoring group and I can't seem to get enough of her posts.
I had no idea what she was about but something led me to join her group and watch her videos or follow her posts.
Not because I felt like I had to. I just did.
I found myself being drawn to her spiritual energy and enlightenment.
Something I craved and sought but couldn't find comfort in.
Reading her writing and connecting with her was like a big AHA moment because it actually started to set my soul on fire, get me thinking again, and deeply realign and reconnect with my soul on an even DEEPER level.
Considering we crossed paths at a time of my life where I was really ready and seeking an awakening it came to no surprise that she gave exactly that.
All my best decisions have been made because of right place, right time, and right feeling.
My best decisions were simply made because it felt right not because it 'sounded good'.
When I made decisions that were not from a soul or love driven place they became poor choices.
But in my life, with mentors, coaches, or supporters I seem to attract exactly what I need to see, hear, or connect to at exactly the right time.
This in my mind, is no coincidence. In fact, I know it is meant to happen this way.
I am so grateful that Eleni Gray showed up in my life. I am so excited to begin working with her. To be honest, I'm not sure what I would say this is. What I know is that this is an opportunity to truly grow on a whole new level. Really expand my mind and my soul. And raise my energy in all areas of life to generate more freedom internally. I know this is the step I am meant to take. The pull has been so strong to truly connect with her and have healing done with her.
I invested in her because I am committed to my growth and serving the world at the highest level I can while continuously living my life freely and in my most optimal state so I can enjoy it to the utmost.
I believe we should trust the nudges we get and follow the direction our soul is taking us because chances are guaranteed that we need this for some particular reason.
This is a journey I am very excited to start.
When you feel drawn to someone or called to work with them, trust that calling and follow it.
