Walk in Beauty

“Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.” - Rumi

I love the practice of choreographing my life in a beauty way. Exploring how I want my sacred life to look and feel has been top of my mind since leaving my corporate job a little over 7 years ago. So much has changed since breaking free of my golden handcuffs. Over this signifiant transformational process I've learned to shed my masks, face my shadow and reclaim my feminine sovereignty. I’ve totally transformed my precious life by design. I’m grateful to have evolved from a stressed out TV advertising sales director to the Soulful Transformation Goddess I am today.

 

Here's what I've uncovered so far.

I walk in beauty and define my sacred life when:

  • I show loving kindness and compassionate self-care to myself and others
  • I allow for lots and lots of creative expression
  • I honor and connect with my spirituality
  • I contribute, collaborate and connect in community
  • I consciously choose to explore and experience infinite gratitude.  

 

 

Once you uncover how you want to show up in the world, the next step is to gain clarity about what each of these areas represent to you. You have the choice to define your role and engage in activities that will support you to flourish. Here's what I've learned so far...

 

Loving Kindness & Compassionate Self-care

If you want to experience loving kindness and compassionate self-care, pace yourself and breathe deeply. Learn to recognize old patterns and quiet your shaming inner critics. Move through your life with the intention of leaving every person feeling loved and energized after sharing time with you. Compassionate self-care is a generous and loving way to honor your mind, body and soul.

 

Creative Expression

You can infuse your life with more creativity by exploring what you want to create and how you wish to express yourself. Discover what brings you the most joy. Learn to flaunt the sweet spots of your creativity. Make your home or apartment an oasis of your creative expression.

 

Spirituality

Do you have a spiritual practice? You can invite more tranquility in your life by exploring which practices bring you comfort. You may wish to begin your spiritual practice by giving thanks, journaling or reading inspirational books.

 

Gratitude

On the days you experience self-doubt, fear and uncertainty, you can still give thanks. Choose to be grateful for your health, that you have clean water to drink and a warm bed to sleep in at night. Learn to give thanks for your current situation, just as it is.

 

Connection & Friendship

Saying yes to participating in my wise women’s circle over the past 2 years provided me with the gift of connection. For most of my life I chose to go it alone. I was the strong one and rarely ever asked for help from my friends. In the last two years I’ve softened and allowed myself to be witnessed when I’m sad, angry or feeling small.

If you can relate to going it alone, do yourself a favor and set aside the illusion of your separateness. Learn to receive.

Nurture your friendships. Be generous. Allow for more heart-centered openness, vulnerability and transparency.

We are all in this together.

Now that I’ve shared how I am defining my sacred life, I invite you to explore what makes you feel vivacious, joyful and divinely present.

"Once you uncover how you want to show up in the world, the next step is to gain clarity about what each of these areas represent to you"

This is brilliant, I think the biggest decision anyone can make is the decision to be authentically themselves, choosing consciously how they want to "show up in the world" as you say. Once that decision is made, its just a matter of practicing that which is you, gaining clarity along the way, and enjoying the process we call life.
