Willingness. What Are You Willing to Do?

Willingness is the ability to say yes to yourself. It is the doorway to possibilities.

What do I mean?

In order to go after what it is you want, in order to create changes and change the course of your life, you are going to have to be willing. I don’t use those words often, “have to”. What I know for sure is, if what you are doing is not making you happy or going in the direction you want it to go in, you will have to change your course of action.

Let’s begin with your resources, your money, time and energy. You will need to, have a willingness to place your money, time and energy towards that which you want. Your willingness shows that you desire the changes. Willingness has no attachment. It is an energy that shows up as yes, this is what I want. Willingness speaks of your ability to let go, vulnerability and openness. This is the path to change.

So what are you willing to Do? Often when you get deep in the chaos turmoil, stuckness, or pain, getting out takes a greater commitment, a greater need to settle, create a plan and act, again a willingness to let go of the story and problem and find a solution, this is willingness.

Most people are held back by their inability to be willing, to have courage, to find faith to act from self trust. Think about this. Do you want to be like and considered most people, or do you believe in yourself that you are capable of making the changes necessary to have what you want.

This is a conscious choice, a decision made based on your own self confidence, no one can or will do it for you.

Willingness may go against everything you were taught and believe, and that is what courage is about. Standing up for what you believe in and speaking up. Courage is not tied to outer resources.

This is where most people lose their willingness. Once you begin to talk about money, time, or energy, people shut down, disconnect or turn off. Willingness flies out the window. Willingness, has no attachment, so once again, it opens the conversation to something new and it understands in this new, in a new direction it will take, money, time and energy.

What are you willing to Do? What is something new you are ready to step into that points you in the direction of your dreams, goals, vision and desires?

Creating changes can be challenging, we tend to be programmed pretty good as to what we believe is right or wrong, truth or not truth and what is important.

Willingness breaks through these barriers.

What changes are you looking to create in your life now?

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.

Power ~ your resource, and how to own your power

Power comes through your ability to hold good boundaries and take actions that are intended to challenge you to grow, to step into something that will encourage and foster growth in you.

How do you go about it? I mean how do you own your power?

First, get clear on what is acceptable to you.  What do you want and need. Claim that.  There is no negotiating this, it is your truth. Stay true to your path. Stay committed to what it is you desire.  Sure there will be others who try and pull you off your path, or discourage you from being on your path.  This requires your mental and emotional strength.  Your own version of how you choose to live.

This is new to many.  To trust, know and believe you can live life on your own terms. That you can create a life that holds meaning and power for you.

If you know you want greater health, then it is up to you to drop the excuses and begin taking actions towards your health vision.  Create a plan, put in activities and lifestyle habits for you to be doing. This take practice, it takes patience and a dedication to yourself, a commitment to yourself.

Small actionable step.  It begins with a choice, putting your resources towards your vision, and no matter what, showing up.  Your power, your light, your energy.  Showing up, turning on.  Your joy, your passion, your gifts.

Your power is Your belief in yourself. It is your self expression, your trust and your truth.

Understand anyone can claim power with the idea of having more, or what they choose to give.  True power comes through confidence, belief in self and a desire to take actions towards your vision, and goals.

So how do you begin to take actions from your source of power?

Listen to the messages within.  Trust in your intuition.  Initially it may seem a bit off, crazy or big, yet as you choose to trust yourself, listen and step forward anyway, inspired by your passion- things begin to change for you.

This is the true nature of power.  Your power.  How does that sound.

Now as I mentioned, others will have a difficult time with your shift, your changes.  This is no time to back down or give up your power.  All the opposite. It is the time you take a stand, rooted and grounded in yourself, your truth. When the world begins to spin, when things begin to move- ground, root, find a sense of center with strength and trust.  Trust in the actions you have taken, and in the direction you are going.  This requires you to let go of the words, ideas, beliefs and problems of others.  This requires you to hold your boundaries, with conviction of what you are unwilling to accept and what you are willing to accept. There is no struggle in this. Clear definitive boundary to hold you powerful. Not powerful over others, powerful in your domain. This is what is essential.  The recognition of power for your own use, in your own space.

When others have issues with your boundaries- stay centered. Be present. Trust you are protecting your resources, your home, your house. It is your alarm system, someone is going towards or into your energy through words, actions, comments, neediness or manipulations that are inappropriate or not acceptable to you. Your boundary is not from a place of attack. It is in place from a place of love- self love. It says I am not willing to accept that here in my space.  It does not make someone wrong- it holds your energy, your power.

 

You see, the true power you have is greater than you believe or even imagine.  Your Power is a source that flows through you for your highest good and to help you grow and navigate challenges.

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

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.

Why women struggle to see the changes they want

For most women it’s not a lack of resources, time, energy or money that holds them back from making the life changes they desire.  Although I hear it all the time from affluent, successful women.  Women who by far have every aspect of comfort and luxury available to them. The real root of the issue is their lack of courage, self confidence, personal power and joy.  Based on the culture values they were raised on, everything was taken care of for them.  There are those women who never had to find their way through a challenge, and the ones that did, were so afraid of real survival issues, found a way to settle in, leaving the past behind, yet never really reconciling the emotional scars.

Now is the time to bring to light, to confront the real fears holding women back, stuck in fear, lack and limitation.

This requires them to face the only person who can save them, and that is themselves.

It can be scary, uncomfortable and risky to think about having to look at yourself in the mirror. To see all the ways you gave up on yourself, in order to get validation of who you are in the world.

Where do we begin? And why?

First we begin with accepting yourself. Forgiving yourself for believing others, trying to keep others happy and forgive yourself for giving up on yourself. Accept the woman you are right now, today. The woman who stands before you in front of the mirror and tell her, you love her.

Look at your confidence, power, and joy. What do you notice?  How do these resources make you feel? Do you know what they are, from within you? How do they show up in your life, or are they missing?

If these are the resources missing, congratulate yourself for your awareness, recognizing thy’re missing and why you’re held back from making the desired changes you’ve been looking to make. You traded your confidence, power and joy in exchange for time, energy and money as opposed to weaving and blending the two together. You gave up on one for the other, and you wonder why you’re not succeeding in making the changes you desire.

So now, it’s time to head in a new direction. That means to take new actions.  This requires courage.  Courage is the key that unlocks the door to the tower you’ve locked yourself away in. No one can do it for you. It’s about taking one step at a time, an action that will set you on a new path, which involves a risk.  Look at it this way.  Every time you step into a courageous action you build your account of confidence, power and joy.

Accept yourself. Look at yourself.  You deserve more.  Not more things.  More, joy, passion, pleasure and love. That can only come from you taking action for your desires.

The biggest challenge is getting started, and since you haven’t been privy to taking actions, risk taking, and courage, it’s like death.  Yes, I know, it feels like death.  That’s it sister. Crossing the threshold into unknown territory will challenge your opposites, life and death. To gain new life you will have to cross over the death of the old into the new.  Living a life in fear.  Living a life attached to outside resources, that’s not living.  That’s keeping you locked in your ivory tower. Your confidence, power and joy, will open you in ways that will shake you to the core, freeing you.

It is freedom you seek.  You thought you’d find it in time, energy and money.  Doing more, having more.

Freedom.  Now you know, your freedom is found in your confidence, power and joy.  Go. Find it, make it happen.

I believe in you.

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.
