What holds you back from what you want

What’s holding you back isn’t what you don’t have. What’s holding you back is the choice and decision to have that which you want.

You see, in order to acquire and have what you want, will ask of you to do the work, put a plan together and take the steps necessary to have what you want.
What holds you back is the story, and beliefs you tell yourself about money, about spending money or putting money towards what you want.

Money is a tool. it is used to build and invest into things, qualities that will help you, to aquire the thing you want. Money is the vehicle, when you spend and invest in services, program and products thathelp you get there. Now the choices you make on the products, services and programs are up to you. The point is saying no, and being unwilling to move money towards your desires, hold you back.

You don’t commit. You’ don’t hold yourself powerful enough. You don’t see the power you hold in the decision you make to have what you want by placing money towards having it.

Now the steps, require action. So when money is put in the plan, you have a sense of urgency a sense of purpose. Take the steps. Go to the groups, take the classes, show up. These are all important aspects that move you towards your desire. It take courage and it shows commitment.

In order to have what you want, you must be doing things different than you are doing them, so this plan puts that in place.

Practice. Practice feeling what it feels like having what you want. Practice expriencing who you are having this. What does it feel like. How do you stand, how do you act? What becomes important to you. Do more of these things.

You see having what you want is in your control What it takes is letting go of the story. Letting go of the excuses. Stepping into curiosity and courage, the 2 qualities necessary to find a new way, to find what it is you desire and want. Every other way- has you in the old beliefs that hold you back and don’t support you and your wants.

Other people will have a story why you can’t do it, why it won’t work.

Stop listening to them. They don’t hold the power, you do. Your power requires actions in alignment with your goals and desires.

What holds you back is your inability to take the actions, to be bold and hold yourself powerful in action.

Now, today, what are you going to do, what action are you going to take on in alignment with your goals and desires.

Being a woman, Business Owner, Fitness Athlete and living the lifestyle I choose

Being a woman as a business owner, an athlete and taking care of my own health and well being is intriguing to some.  I find understanding my work as a business, being in business is no different than anyone else.  I hold a great deal of discipline focus and passion for my work, just like my workouts.  I found a way to maximize my workouts, eat smart and clean and have a business and work I love.

Why am I deciding to share this?

How many of you have a career you love?  How many of you are in a business that you find joy, success and pleasure? How many of you can go to the gym ready? Ready to get your workout in, focused, strong and committed.  How many of you go to the gym, eat clean AND get the results you are looking for?

I DO.  So in this case what makes me special?  I understand and have built success in my fitness and nutrition for over 20 years, because it’s the foundation I chose to build.  I love my workouts, because I know how to stimulate my mind and my body from a point of excitement and success.

I created this.  That’s right.  I created a business and career I love, a fitness, nutrition and body I love and I choose to be around people, community, friends and clients that appreciate and value the same things.

I created the communities by investing in myself.  Finding the right avenues to spend my time, energy and money.  From Fitness Centers, Coaching Programs, Lifestyle Events and relationships.

I’m opening up about this because it’s who I choose to be.  I choose to live life on my terms. I choose to excite myself with passion joy and pleasure. And, passion, joy and pleasure comes through the way I spend my time and energy.  And so does yours.

 

I maximize my joy, passion and pleasure.  With focus and discipline, I set aim on a target, that feels right for me.  Something that offers me growth and development, and inspires me.  You see, I know, my spirit loves to feel and be inspired- it fuels me and moves me to action.  Action being the catalyst for change growth and new.  You must be willing to take actions to have changes.  I mean you can not be doing the same thing and expect different results.  For me, since my work is creating changes, transformation, taking the lead, charging forward is my normal.  I throw myself into the fire of change.  I look around for my next step to leap.  I take action in alignment with my goals and I am not afraid to invest in myself. In fact, I love it.

If you want to know one of the secrets for my energy, my body, workouts and business, it’s change.  My desire to grow, to learn, to take actions that offer me opportunity to be fresh, inspired and in my joy.  This is my gift. My gift to cultivate my radiant, vibrant energy and generate success in life and with my clients.

Being an athlete is my heart and soul.  I love the ability to express myself through the stage and movement.  I just connect so profoundly to challenging myself body mind and spirit which comes through effortlessly as I train.  Effortlessly in the sense of I bring on the work as a way to practice excellence, consistent and dedication.

What are you ready to change?  What are you ready to have greater passion, joy, pleasure, commitment and discipline with?  These are all areas my work, my business teaches you and creates a plan that matches your lifestyle. It becomes an investment to move you where you want to be. And, it becomes up to you.  Just like me.

 

I set it up this way.  I set up having the career, business, body, and lifestyle I want to have.

 

Are you ready?

Commitment and the Power in Finding Your Passion

Commitment, the path home

What does commitment mean to you? Does it mean sticking to your goals and plans no matter what? As challenging and difficult as things may look, staying the course to follow through, even though you don’t know how it ends? Or does it mean, finding a different route a different path to get to your end goal?

The truth is who’s path are you following?

There comes a point in your life, when you understand what your commitments look like. I mean what holds the most meaning to you. The depth of the passion in your soul and the fire in your heart to blaze your way towards your desires. Desires, passion, fire- they are all the source needed, necessary, non-negotiable, in going after your desires. So where did or do you sell out?

Where do you stick to the plan others told you to take to get there?

Where do you stay safe in the commitments you made, which have little to do with the true desire, fire and passion of the commitments that hold meaning to you?

Commitments are an unspoken word, an agreement and arrangement with the Universe. It’s a channel a source and path that resources and currency flow through. If you are challenged by your time, energy or money- your commitments are out of alignment with your true desires, your truth and plan. The plan that is in the message of your heart. When you stop and look at what brings you passion, are you doing that? Are you creating relationships, work, successes that fuel and embrace your passion? No?

Then, your commitments are off target.

You see, we are all born with the gift to embrace, enjoy and live our passions. It’s up to you to uncover, expose and explore your passions, even if the ideas seem crazy and outside the box. Finding the truth of your commitments comes from a deep passionate love affair with how your resources are being spent, outgoing. If you followed the path laid out for you, if you succumbed to the idea that having these things would make you happy and commit to this lifestyle and you’re missing happiness and pleasure, depleting your joy, time, energy and money, then you are not on your truest path.

Take a sigh of relief. Now you know. Now you know your happiness had been committed to the ideas and version of life other people told you would give you something or make you happy.

Now, to re-establish your commitments on your own terms. This will look completely crazy and illogical. You’ll show up, embracing places, activities, people and things- activities that will cost you- money, people, relationships and most importantly- the old stuck and stagnant lifestyle you had been living. You will decide that your passion, your deepest desires on your own terms brings you greater freedom and joy than you could have ever imagined. And that is exactly what you have been seeking. Greater freedom and joy. A level of self expression that asks for nothing in return and is grounded and rooted in deep satisfaction in self.

Now re-routing, staying on your path, re-committing to your passion, is exactly what you are asked to do.

Are you up for it? Are you up for connecting so deeply and passionately with yourself that you step into the fears that leave you shaking at your knees and heart pounding?

I know you can do it. I’ve been there. It’s a conscious choice. It holds you powerful. It hold you in command of your life. It speaks to the Universe, Yes. Yes I am ready for the good in my life that I desire. The way I choose to live and embrace living.

It releases, removes and discords all the past programming that held you in the false happiness, ideas and beliefs others thrusted at you, manipulated you into, and pushed on you- even if it was in a loving kind way.

This is your time. You hold the power, your efforts are clear and solid. Now it’s up to you to follow your path, trust in your journey and step forward. There is a whole world waiting for you based on your own passion.

If you’re ready for your journey back home, to your true passion, connect with me at monica@priestessofpassion.com or click on Priestess of Passion to begin your Journey today

With love

Cultivating a relationship with Surrender

Surrender. The act of surrender is a letting go. A complete act of trust in the unknown where all things are possible.  Now, I have had significant experiences being in surrender from an emotional standpoint.  Confronting emotions that were limiting, holding me back, interfering with what I wanted to feel and experience. The experience, always has me release the feelings without attachment, so I bring up the feelings and can feel them without attaching to them.  It’s become a very effective process for me.

Surrender from the physical is different.  The process isn’t different, my ability to be in it, handle it is different. There are always actions taken, always the new set in place. Once the new has stable grounding, the old no longer has a purpose to serve or a way to survive. This uproots the old, causing a need to let go, surrender to the new, which needs a place to grow, thrive and be expressed out, for the old, having been uprooted, no longer has anything left to give or receive.  In the physical, what I am noticing is this place of trust has pulled up roots that are so interconnected.  Interconnected to people, places, finances, career, really related to the outer world.
Each time I explored and entered surrender through the emotional, it always involved me.  There was no one else, nothing else.  Sure patterns and experiences, yet ultimately I knew it was all related to my inner world, the way I was feeling.

So, Surrender through the physical, into the outer world.  What is this? How does this work?  Your life is always speaking to you.  When you discover, uncover ways your life is unhappy, unfulfilled, out of alignment for what you want and believe, and you come to the urge, the desire to take actions, to make changes, you begin your process. Surrender in the outer world asks for trust and faith. It asks for help from others, not in a way that has you being needy or helpless, rather in a way that holds you powerful. Surrender has you find stillness.  Surrender removes all the obstacles, the blinders.  Surrender has you bloom, open, expand in the most magical ways.  It’s a point of contact.  Surrender in the physical lets you know you are human and you like everyone else, count on support. Divine Support, support of community, support of your highest good.  Surrender, in the physical sense clears all old paths.  It moves you forward through right relationships, and right actions.  For me this was a real AHA.

To know that trust, to feel and receive connections.  The right relationships, the right connections are here.

There is a heart connection that happens in surrender.  There is a connection so deep, so profound, everything is changed. This heart connection allows you the space, courage and wisdom to grow forward.  This path, this choice is only found in the depth, the rawness and the commitment towards surrender.  Once you hit the bottom, the first thing surrender requires is calmness.  A calmness from within. That you see and trust in your environment. Your environment which holds the people, places and resources for you to be in surrender.  An important aspect of surrender is it happens in an initiation of  adulthood. There is no victim, blame, judgement, resentment or poor me. Surrender, in your environment holds this space or vibration of you being at your highest good, the highest version of yourself because, essentially you are releasing everything that held you back or was in your way of achieving this. Surrender, allows for the best version of you, your highest good to be held, received, giving life to your now, your truth.

Surrender brings the best of you forward. It allows for you to accept who you are, making peace with it now.

Guided Action. The Energy Behind Action

 

Guided Action: action is the fuel that leads to success.
Trust is the Key and Passion is the Fuel~ 
Priestess of Passion

Action can take on many different personalities for people.  It is the energy behind it that moves people, whether it be fear, inspiration, joy, challenge, false power, or other qualifying reasons.  Non- Action, from a place of lack of action, a choice to do nothing, remaining in the status quo, to choose an idea of safety and security keeps people stuck.  There’s a saying that goes ignorance is bliss.  That’s not really true.  Bliss comes through the joy, acceptance, rising to the occasion and stepping forward, I can call it towards the unknown, to create a desired outcome.

In order to live a fulfilling wholehearted life, one must be taking action. Now, finding a path to take action on that matches your level of integrity, passion, and desires is to develop a strategy and system that fuels you, that nourishes your soul and spirit from the inside out.

Guided action comes from your ability to know what you want. Everyone talks about the “bigger vision”, I say, start with one step, what do you want your foundation to look like, the ground beneath you that supports you.  For me, what this looks like is a high level Fitness Club, community centered with like minded fitness men and women.  Food that nourishes my spirit, rich and vibrant in color, sweet and juicy in texture and taste that ranges from fruits, vegetables, meats, chicken, fish, potatoes, and a limited variety of grains. A rainbow palate of color. Clients that respond, know what they want and allow me the opportunity to deliver in magical ways. Having a Fitness program that speaks through me, moving every aspect of my body mind and spirit and friends and connections that recognize, understand, value and appreciate my desire for freedom, excellence and commitment towards my goals. As these parts of my world are in place, my foundation is set.  The earth beneath me, the ground below me is fertile for all of my actions to come through my spirit, my intuitive knowing and the path that is designed for me.

What I have described here is, my choices and decisions to limit the distractions, and background noise that disrupts and interferes with my life…my work, my health, my relationships, my finances and my happiness & success.

So how do you know the difference in Action?  How do you know when it is guided action?  What I have learned through experience is there are steps to be taken, lessons to be learned to acquire wisdom and limiting beliefs to overcome.  Often, actions can be tangled in these areas. The frustration is taking the actions with trust in self, and finding you’ve repeated the pattern. Guided Action is first set in your foundation, as opposed to just randomly going for it, putting it out there.  Guided action has a “nest”,  a foundation for you to take aim from and land in.

Slow down. Take your time and act from where you are.  Allow the next step to appear, to be revealed to you, just like a seed springing toward the sun out of the ground. Unless you have things organized, and a clear space, jumping ahead of where you are, leaves you open and exposed to falling. This is what I described above as, “lessons to be learned to acquire wisdom”.  Once you have gained the wisdom, it is truly time for you to put your actions to work for you.

Look at your foundation.  What in the basics of life is working for you?  What is not?  Create the necessary plan and strategy to uplevel this area.  Uplevel means bring yourself to a higher ground, a better environment, a better situation.  Plan, and prepare- not over think.  Plan and prepare comes through knowing what you need to be in environments and situations that work for you and with you (as opposed to against you).

Once you know your plan, it may change, the important aspect is knowing where you are going, the outcome you are headed for. Take a small actionable step towards that goal or vision. Then allow.  Allow the Universe to show up with ideas, answers and all the ways it is supporting you in moving towards your goals and desires. From your choices that arise, settle and ground and Act, make a decision.  With this decision, follow through to the next step.  The whole process is designed to keep you on track.  On track for your desires, goals and dreams.

Once you take the action, this is the best part… YOU MUST SHOW UP AS OWNING IT.  You show up in that reality.  This is key and essential.  When it shows up for you, it is what you have been working towards. Often people get distracted, or not fully believing the next step that has showed up, is a part of their path. As you take the action, allow it in.  Allow this new discovery, this action to be YOUR TRUTH.

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!

New Growth; Investment in your resources

 

Invest in Your Growth ~ Body Mind Spirit

Growth. The ability to support something in development, a natural process.  We all have the ability to grow and change, develop.  It’s a choice. It requires an investment in your resources, time, energy and money. You may say, “I want to lose weight”, or “I want to get a new job”, the truth is, if you are not choosing to invest your resources, into making it happen, you’re not showing up for yourself, your growth and development to the next stage of your life.

Money, by itself is energy, a tool.   It’s used to invest in goods and services and create change.  You could decide you don’t want to “spend” money on a weight loss program, a gym membership, learning new skills, or a headhunter.  The flip side to that is you really don’t want to “invest” in yourself to lose weight or get a new job.

The Truth is, The greatest Investment you can make, is in Yourself, Body, Mind, Spirit

When you decide, having the body you want, having a job you love is more important than “not spending money”, you remove your limitations, your obstacles and choose from a place of self worth, a place where your vision and your goal is set in motion, and you invest in moving forward.

A decision and action are necessary for you to achieve the results you want.  A decision and action demand a different course. Once again, that requires change, an openness, a willingness and a positive belief in yourself to achieve the goals you desire. You plant the seeds and nourish them with your time, energy and money.

So let’s be real here.  Fear, projects limits. Fear see’s things one way. Fear closes you off to investment in yourself. You can see fear around you in the ways you stop yourself, the way you negotiate and the way you perpetuate cycles of lack and limitation.

Investments on the other hand, asks you to stop, check in.  Investments asks you to find peace, clarity, trust and belief in your vision, yourself, and the present moment.  Sure, their will be people who don’t understand your vision, or your desires. They’ll talk negative about it, put you down, and have a way to squash your vision. And that, my love, has nothing to do with you.  That is their view point of the world, their own journey through self doubt and their own projected fear.

When you recognize, investing and putting money, time and energy towards those things you hold near and dear to you, things that matter and that which you desire, you change your perspective, you open the flow to everything that supports you, to have ~.  You must listen. Listen to that which is like in words, thoughts and actions. Free of judgments, free of shame, blame and guilt.  Free.  Free in feeling, free in energy and free in being.

Free to be exactly as is.

Find your voice.

Follow your joy, your passion.

Trust your vision.

Invest your resources, your gifts, your heart energy into those that will move you forward.  It may not be those who have what you want.  It will be those who understand you are empowered to your desires and goals, those who understand the power you have over your vision. And those who believe in the beauty of investing in body mind and spirit.

Growth happens when you give more power to yourself.   Your visions, while taking right actions for those visions to grow, and manifest. Investment time, money, energy ~ body, mind, spirit
