Added value resource: Creativity

creativity-mindset

One of the deepest resources hampered in society today is creativity.  Creativity is a resource that adds value, increases worth, adds growth and presents opportunity.

You see, in order to reach new heights, succeed in achieving new goals, break through barriers, you’ll need a strong commitment to your creativity.  This applies to corporations, as well as business and personal living.  My formula for Creativity is Commitment + Passion = Power.  It is this power, generated by passion and commitment that steers the course to your vision, the path you set out on to achieve your desired outcome.  Interestingly enough, creativity is related to the 2nd chakra, abundance, sexuality, joy and pleasure.

Let me introduce you into my world.  A world where joy, pleasure, passion, play, abundance and creativity design and lead. A world where your ability to create something through commitment and passion, bring forth joy and happiness.  The true nature of abundance and sexuality give and receive more life to all.

So where do you begin? First, what are you willing to be committed to. Begin with one thing.  Understand distractions, negativity, self doubt, outsiders opinions and every excuse imaginable will show up in your face. That’s called lack, limitation, excuses, and a whole host of defending your inaction and not taking responsibility. This view opens your commitment to a childlike wonder perspective, opportunity! Opportunity shows up to challenge you.  To rise above the status quo and take action, even when you are afraid.  Commitment brings in creativity, which gives you the opportunity to build something new. This is where one of my favorite gifts lies, resourcefulness. Resourcefulness has no limits.  It teaches creativity, accountability, vulnerability, clarity, trust, perseverance and most importantly, belief in one’s self, Self Love- gratification, joy and humility. In order to move beyond the chatter, and current limits you will need to cultivate a practice of resourcefulness.  Money, time and energy can’t buy resourcefulness.  Imagination, quality time alone and with the ones you love, meditation, reading, day dreaming, journaling, doing activities that inspire you, and spending time building that which you desire, your passion builds resourcefulness.

Now back to “what are you willing to be committed to”.  I mentioned commitment + passion= power, and I just spoke about resourcefulness and it’s connection to passion. You, and only you, must invoke your power and resourcefulness to achieve new results, new outcomes. And, that is where your goal lies, isn’t it?

Let me share with you some of the side effects of resourcefulness: fun, joy, happiness, success, focus, tenacity, playfulness, and there you find~ creativity.

So where is the problem?  The problem is “out there”.  It’s in the disbelief, the judgement & unkindness from others towards your happiness and joy.  It’s in the current limitations around you in the environments that show you it hasn’t been done.  The problem is “in there”, in your mind, your feelings of not being able to, not being good enough, not raised that way, not motivated, essentially, not believing in yourself.

Creativity has been hampered. It has been devalued. It has been traded in for statistics, a one size fits all, brand. Yet when inspired, invoked, and celebrated it’s your creativity that gives you joy, pleasure and happiness like no other.  Creativity is unique.  It is purposeful and gives meaning to your passions, and the way you spend your time, energy and money. It’s how you build, create and enjoy all aspects of your life.

If you’re inspired to create changes within your life or business in the new year, through your commitment + passion= power, and uncover your creativity for more joy, pleasure, and happiness, come work with me in the Clarity Package! Email me at monica@priestessofpassion.com

Expansion. Expanding and crossing thresholds

 

Expansion isn’t a word you hear everyday in relation to your spirituality or health, yet expansion is an essential part of growth and progress.  The concept of expansion from a Spiritual standpoint is opening for the new to give way, to stay open, letting go of perceived notions or beliefs.  Expansion, actually, opens to the light. It reaches, stretches and knows, the light provides the necessary nourishment and nutrients for the next stage of growth.

From the beginning of life, expansion shows up in the form of a woman’s uterus and body, expanding with child. During the time of childbirth, expansion happens again, when the birth canal and vagina expands for the baby, crossing through it’s threshold.

That Is, how we are designed to go through life, expanding and crossing thresholds.

So what do we need to understand about expansion to help us live richer, calmer, fuller, more satisfying lives?

Let’s begin with, it’s not the expansion that scares us.  It’s not understanding how the application of expansion works in our favor, how it works.

Expansion will happen every time we set ourselves up to grow, to make change. There will be steps required to take, along with centering and grounding and decisions to make. It’s in these decisions, you move toward the light, opening more and more in expansion. Your decisions will be based on the present, where you are and where you are going. It’s this conscious choice of Now, that expansion happens.  This is a non-negotiable for your growth, transformation and true change to be real and lasting.

The beauty of expansion is how you mature, grow and gain through the process. More light, more love- expansion opens you, softens you and shows your true power.

Expansion challenges all parts of us, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. The greater sense of calm and clarity you have, the simpler it is to identify how to go about your expansion and stay focused towards the growth and changes you seek.

Let’s take a more precise look at what occurs in the stage of expansion. Expansion is taking action towards the new.   It brings down a shedding of the old, just like a flower reaching for the sunlight, blooming, letting go of the delicate and protective covering. Before it releases the covering and protection, take note of this, it does not let anything in! In it’s most essential phase of expansion, right before it is ready to drop its protective cover it does not let anything in, that will disturb it’s path of growth.  For you, this means you are required to have focus, precision, trust, stillness and patience plus good boundaries.  Make no mistake, this can feel intense, being in this place of in between, where your trust and faith must be greater than your fear and disbelief.

And, this is how it works in your favor.  It teaches you to grow, stretch and believe in that which is brightest and boldest, your passion and your true power to create and believe. It asks of you to show up with nothing less than your best. You see, expansion requires you, not time, energy or money. Expansion, is you letting go of the old, stretching with faith and trust in what you have been nurturing, placing your resources towards.

The actual expansion, is the process of unfolding.

Hold your vision. Hold your faith with power, conviction and love.

Embraced by a larger love, moving from ambition to meaning

 

Bacons-stained-glass-window-4-largeMoving from ambition to meaning

There comes a point in your life, whether you stop and wonder,  look around you questioning what you have and what you’re doing, or just recognize and acknowledge your life is not everything you want. I’m talking about want from an inner perspective. You see all the things you’ve acquired, the degrees earned, titles held, the way you spend your time energy and money, really hold no meaning to you.  They’re not aligned with your true values. Once you reach this level of consciousness, a whole new world opens up to you, literally and figuratively.

This consciousness brings with it a new level of risk. A risk where you begin trusting in the unseen, you become the observer, peeling back the layers that once held power over you.  It requires humility, compassion and most importantly, self love. This level of risk is a vulnerability to the aspects of your life that you built which held meaning and power to you and for the life you built.

Moving to meaning.  In this new choice, meaning is everything that you value from your heart, body and mind.  It asks for you to listen to the message within your heart, feeling the truth in your body which sets you free.  The feeling of ease, simplicity, grace and flow. It asks your mind to let go, release and surrender to the opening.  It’s only through the crack in the darkness can the light enter.  Like stained glass windows and décor, the effects of the light, sunlight reflecting light can your true beauty shine.  This is your journey through the darkness into the light, where your sense of identity is broken- you transcend into the next phase of your growth. Your truth. Where things hold no meaning over you.

Where you claim your power. The power you hold within, to make conscious choices and decisions, to act from faith and belief in yourself, and to stand your ground for what you believe in.

Empowerment. The true gift in empowerment is you choose where you invest ( I choose not to use the word spend here), your time, energy and money.  When you are empowered the choices you make with your resources, time, energy and money, will add increase to your life and to those you touch.  The resources exchanged will be an asset on both sides, adding to growth.

Let me elaborate.  In ambition, you are looking to get a bigger home, a fancier car, a better body, more of the external with the spending of your resources to get something that you believe will make you have or feel a certain way.  Moving to meaning, you decide to invest your money in a home that makes you feel safe, secure and provides you a temple, a sanctuary to rest your head.  It may still be a big home, yet the meaning behind it is what it provides you.  In that safety and security you make better choices and decisions.  When in meaning, rather than complaining about how much the fitness program costs, the gym, private training, the fresh foods, the time it takes to workout, being to busy, not having any energy, you decide to look at the overall lifestyle of having health, you recognize the investment you are making towards your health which will pay generously as you grow and mature.  You are consciously investing in your health today, so later you’re not at the mercy of the Dr.s and medical system.  In ambition you are looking for doing it all, showing up for everyone.  You want to be seen as successful, only doing it all leaves you unfulfilled on the inside.  In meaning you leave that all behind.  You choose to say, “what makes me happy.  What can I do to be of service that gives to me that which I give to others?”  You decide to find peace, grounding and stability in trusting yourself, your gifts, your OWN INHERENT WORTH, which has nothing to do with a title, money or status.  In this you find Freedom.

You Thrive.

While in meaning you choose habits, patterns, places and experiences that nourish you.  You choose to leave the realm of excuses, problems and difficulties to stand in your place of power in the realm of solutions, gratitude, trust, compassion, and the present moment, a consciousness of richness found within that supersedes anything external.

It is here, You give meaning to your greatest gifts, your values, and power flow through you, from a place of love.

A Woman’s Worth, Illuminating the Riches Within

a9ee95b7baa8c65e8bc6cd3b1b52d7f6--walk-in-lights

Over the past week I’ve had 2 men stop, for me.  They couldn’t put their finger on what was different about me, only that they were very attracted to me.  They wanted to spend time with me, finding me mysterious, curious.  The attraction was more than physical, something greater than external.  These men where attracted to my light. They were charmed by the radiance of my inner feminine, the Priestess within, illuminating out in all I am. I find women notice it, and often have a hard time seeing the reflection within themselves.  It becomes unsafe for women to see another women so wildly accepting of herself, her joy, her passion and her pleasure.

What is the recipe for women to notice their own inner worth?  The value they have inherently within that doesn’t seek approval, has no need to be right, perfect or unkind to herself?  For a woman to be so unapologetically all she is, Happy, Free and Radiating Joy

Within you, your Divine Feminine, Inner Priestess hold more power than you could ever imagine.

The first state of affairs is to release the belief that outer things, money, high end luxury car, big home, top level career, designer handbags hold more value than you do, or that they give you value.  Sure these luxuries add to your quality of living, but when you sacrifice your own truth, your own worth in exchange for these things, you give up your power.  You give up your power to the things you believe make you who you are.  They don’t and they can’t.  Only you can do that for you.

Let’s get back to value and worth.  A woman’s worth is marked on her ability to hold good boundaries, use discernment when making decisions, not judge others, and most importantly honor her body mind and spirit with healthy positive habits, thoughts and actions.

And guess what?  Honoring your body mind and spirit as a woman will take an investment of your resources, time, energy, and money.  Resources are given to us to exchange for building, creating and investing in what matters most to us.  If you complain about “being fat” or “not having enough time”, well it’s a call to action to invest, step forward, spread your wings and jump. If you believe buying another pair of shoes will do the trick, or getting your nails done, you’re missing the point.  A woman, who holds power, who knows her value and worth is willing to invest in herself. No excuses. Period.  Sure she’ll be uncomfortable, yet with faith, a courageous heart and the trust of her self, she steps forth into the unknown onto a journey of self discovery which brings her more life than she could ever imagine.

When we begin to understand money as a tool, it’s put to use to provide for us what we need in life, that includes spiritual maturity of using money to grow our own health, well being and spiritual practice. One that keeps you happy, healthy and radiant. Money, provides the luxuries necessary to nourish, nurture and support your greatest asset, your Inner Priestess, Your Light.  You’re too valuable, and you know it. Quite the excuses and the whining.

How do I keep my Inner Priestess so Bright? I cultivated a deep, passionate and loving relationship with my emotions.  Ones that like any relationship have their ups and down, yet, with a knowing they are my emotions, I am responsible for them and they support my living from my habits, thoughts and actions.  I’d better know how to use them to my advantage.

I’ve let go of attachment of what I think I need and what I want to focus on what I feel.  What feels true to me.  What inspires my soul. Where is my passion, my joy and my freedom.  That is my source of connection to my Inner Feminine and I unabashedly share it, and Be, in it.

Being in my Feminine means, letting go of the push, any sense of insecurity, holding centered, rooted and balanced in Trust.  It means listening to my intuition, watching the world around me from a higher perspective, and it means leading my life from flow with ease and grace.  I hold sacred with value my resources, my relationships, my business, my health and my life.  If there is no trust, honor or respect, I make a conscious choice to end the relationship and walk away.

I believe men appreciate and need woman to take a stand for their own feminine. I believe our world needs women ready to take a stand for her own feminine, to honor her own self, releasing her toxic behaviors thoughts and patterns.  I believe it’s time for women to reclaim a part of herself she abandoned for things, the idea the outer world would provide for her.

The honest truth.  A woman must be ready. She must be so tired, exhausted, drained of her energy, her life force.   A woman must be so unhappy in her life, miserable at wits end and really feeling unworthy and defeated to say, YES, Yes I am ready to claim my value and worth.

And, that’s a good thing……

The journey can then begin.

Change as an act of Power

Times of Change: The Inner World and the Outer World find Balance, Peace and Flow

We’ve asked for it.

Some of us have prepared for it in our habits, choices, actions and work.

We wanted change. We wanted change, where what we want, feel and believe in our hearts matches what we receive in our outer world.

Change can be subtle as we take the actions forward, with new plans, ideas, habits and feelings. And, believe it or not, often times these changes will be challenged by the old ways. “Are you sure you want to change?” “Are you completely committed to this new change?” Do you believe?, Do you believe in the new changes”?

 

It always looks good on paper, and it feels good when taking the actions. Yet when confronted with the old, do you have the courage to say Yes to the new. Do you have the courage, strength and wholeheartedness to allow the old ways showing up in the form of chaos, destruction, disruption, pain and despair to circle around you, praying on you to be vulnerable.

It is time for change and many of you have been doing your personal work to make it happen.  Aligning your values with your actions and words. Listening to your gut and intuition, trusting decisions, making good choices. You’ve placed what matters most, from the people you love, to your health first, the reason behind your happiness, your most valuable resources, as opposed to placing time, energy and money as the recipient of what matters most. You, my dear friends are willing to take self responsibility for your living and everything that holds value to you within the World. That is the power and passion of living life courageous and wholeheartedly.

 

Willing to let go of the status quo, bold and brave to say yes to accomplishing goals and dreams that ask you to continuously show up, stretch, learn, give, trust and believe.

Your actions, dedication, commitment set in motions by your emotions of joy, pleasure, happiness and success, because that is what you choose to believe.  With that contagious attitude you inspire others to find the light within, to rise up and be the change they wish to be.  For other to take a stand for hope, to liberate there soul to freedom, making new choices and decisions that reflect the values they hold near and dear to their hearts.

An Act of Power.  Yes, change is an act of Power, and one only you can do for yourself.

Now, more than ever, celebrate, appreciate the changes you’ve made, the people you’ve inspired, and where you are going. This is a time Great Power is available to us as a collective, one that is based on your heart & soul, one that will set the foundation for our children’s future.  There is no greater Force than this Energy~ building, setting new systems and structures, creating a new path for our children to live in a world that values the power of Love, where health, prosperity, fun, joy and happiness are their way of living.

How Powerful is it knowing your actions, intentions, values, choices and way of living; authentic and with self responsibility is building a new world right now.

Yes, you are the change. How grateful, my heart full,  to see so many of you in your dedication to that which you value most~ yourself, your family, your work, your community.

Blessings often come disguised as problems, chaos and trouble…..

Keep up the good work, You are moving in the right direction!

The True Power You Have~ Now

So often people wait for the right opportunity, to have enough time, enough money, a better body, be happier and the cycle of “waiting” is perpetuated. What gets washed over is what is available now. What is available now is going to look different than what you want, yet it is the foundation, building blocks to get you where you want to go.  In order to build and have what you want, you’ll have to overcome, move through and challenge limits and old patterns, hence the perpetual cycle.

Standing in, standing up, being clear on what you need to get where you want to go relies on relationships, the relationships you build and have today, to bring you what you want.

All things flow through relationships. It begins with the relationship you have with yourself. That requires a willingness to take action, providing yourself a foundation that may feel different and new, and surround yourself with people who are willing to provide, protect and give in a way that nourishes your spirit, has you wanting more and stops the cycle of “waiting”.   It’s here now.

When you look at your resources, really look at them, your finances, your work~ the people you work with and the environment you work in, your friends, your family, your neighborhood, your gym and health professionals, everything that makes up your foundation, are they providing and protecting you, supporting you Now to get you to where you want to be? Are they caring for you in a way that gives you opportunity to take action towards your vision?

It is up to you, it is a requirement to take Self Responsibility here. Now.

Maybe your relationships are overprotective.  Then it’s your responsibility Now, to find those relationships that build strength and courage to go out on your own. It may feel or seem reckless or careless, and you know what, the alternative is a slow, steady decline to stuckness and stagnation.  To never being able or willing to take action towards your goals and dreams.  Today, find the people who celebrate and value a little wildness.

The relationships you have today are the stepping stone to building what you want tomorrow.

The key here is, the new relationships you make, they’ll move you forward, and then….when you are ready for the next level in your life, you’ll create new relationships.

 

The missing piece in society is, when you have goals, visions and dreams, you’ll need to build the relationships that support your vision goals and dreams. Leaving the safety of your nest and spreading your wings to fly. If the people you’re around don’t have the same values, or appreciate you, you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders.  Each level of change you go through, will ask for you to spread your wings and find new connections.

 

Your life changes when you’re willing to create and cultivate new relationships. Relationships without attachment, relationships for the growth of each person involved.

The true power in this is, allowing yourself to change. You must be willing to receive something new.  Something new in relationship to your attitude, behavior and actions to move forward towards your goals.  This begins Now.  What you learn is the true power you do have.  You learn to see people and relationships as an asset to you or a liability, neither good or bad, just a recognition of who has the potential to give freely and move you forward.

That’s right give freely and move you forward.  Give freely to contribute to your energy. Give freely to invest in you.

This is your power.  Your ability to receive without attachment.
