A Return To Love.. & Blogging

Written by , Posted in Attractive Energy, Clarity, Inner Purity

Dear Suni-babes,

It’s been a while since I’ve written on the blog, I must say my V-logging has definitely taken over and with a baby it’s just been more of an interactive experience sharing my mind, body, skin tips via video.

Like anything, when you have something removed from your routine for a while you understand what you are now missing. And while video is fun, I didn’t have the opportunity to internalize, reflect, and write about my experiences. 2017 was an amazing year and full of love! And though it was all of that and more, there were moments that I did not share the not-so-amazing because I just didn’t make room for it. I have been quite dismissive on issues that were important if they did not seem positive or uplifting. I withheld compassion for myself and for others in negative situations because I just didn’t have time for it. But now, I understand what was missing and that was simply the allowance of time and space to properly heal & learn. In the coming weeks, I will share these lessons one by one.

For now, without getting into too much detail, I would love to share an excerpt from A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson. I’m sure I’ve shared here before.. a reminder. It is for myself, but also for you in case you’ve forgotten a midst the whirlwind of your busy life.

Thank you, 2017.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us.

We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small
Does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine,
As children do.
We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us;
It’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

-Marianne Williamson

xx love & light.

INSTANTLY ELEVATE YOUR WORLD

Heightening of your inner world will instantly elevate the reality of your outer world.

However, easier said than done, right? Especially if you have not yet built the awareness around what holds you back from elevating your world instantly. How aware are you of your emotions and how it could take control of you. For this post, we will call it ‘shadow’, ie. your dark side, the heavier side of your emotions. First we identify what the shadow is, the ‘thing’ that holds you back from elevating your world.

Shadow Main Ingredients:

  • Secrecy – not to reveal basic desires
  • Shame
  • Judgement
  • Blame
  • Projection
  • Separation
  • Enemies
  • Struggle – constant state of inner vs. outer warfare

The result of your shadow is war, struggle, and unnecessary drama.

The solution to uncreate the shadow by accepting your duality of light and dark. It is to be aware of your shadow and to acknowledge it. Instead of allowing shadow to take charge, we must take charge as creators of our own lives.

Duality is where you are, your split self is your most damaging illusion. In other words, when you identify your bad side and your good side you’re creating a separation instead of saying both your good and bad is OK, they are emotions that you can identify with. You are not ashamed of your shadow. It is also the knowing that if you did not have your shadow you would not be able to experience light.

You also have choices. Choose to accept your shadow, here are the choices:

1.  Stop Projecting. Be open to your shadow, here are projection examples and what it truly disguises:

  • Superiority disguises your own fear of rejection.
  • Arrogance disguises bottled up anger, beneath that is deep seated pain.
  • Defensiveness disguises the feeling that you are unworthy and weak.
  • Blame disguises the feeling that you are at fault and should be ashamed.
  • Idealizing others disguises the feeling that you are a weak helpless child that needs protecting, also feelings of inferiority.
  • Prejudice disguises the feeling that you are inferior and deserve to be rejected. 
  • Jealousy disguises your own impulse to stray, or a sense of sexual inadequacy.
  • Paranoia disguises deap seated anxiety.

Make peace with your projections. Here’s how: alertness, willingness, openness, honesty, courage. Feel the fear, and say “I see you, you belong to me.” Make peace with your feelings. Once you feel what you have, you can choose to push it down, attack it further, judge it. Or you can heal the unwanted feeling, face it, and acknowledge it. Hopefully you choose the latter. If you do not heal it, it will persist.

2. Detach: I can get through this, I won’t feel better unloading on someone else, acting out leads to regret and guilt, i can be patient lets see if i can cool down, moods come and go even the worst moods, I know how to center myself.

3. Give Up Self Judgement: Every emotion is valid in some way but when you add self-judgement, any emotion can be damaging. Grant sympathy for yourself, and be understanding of yourself. The inner judge dissolves when you are kind to yourself, and you sympathize with your self. Let your sympathy flow.

4. Rebuild Your Emotional Body: keeping your emotional body as healthy as we keep our physical body. When we are not feeling nourished emotional we feel fatigued, anxious. Emotional body should remain pleasing to experience.

Mantra: The lightness of being.

Tips to Build Your Emotional Body:

  • Becoming more whole
  • Learning to be resilient
  • Dispelling the demons of the past
  • Healing old wounds
  • Expecting the best and highest for yourself
  • Adopting realistic ideals.
  • Giving of yourself
  • Being generous especially with your spirit
  • Seeing through your fears
  • Learning self acceptance
  • Communicating with your higher self

Awareness and consciously choosing your thoughts in order to elevate your world instantly takes some not so instant work:) Keep going!

xx love and light.

MORE FUN; LESS FEAR

Written by , Posted in Attractive Energy, Beauty, Clarity, Confidence, Inner Purity, Love, Mind, Sunina, Yoga, You

Speak up because what you have to contribute is powerful, don’t second guess yourself or your skills.

I’ve shared an abbreviated quote on the blog before, but here is the full version of Marianne Williamson’s quote based on her reflections on ‘A Course In Miracles’.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Let go of perfection, go for exactly what scares you. Once you’ve gotten over the fear, you experience the fun, once you’ve gotten the lesson you needed from that experience, it’s time to move on to your next ‘fear’, the next lesson.
