LIVE LOVE LEAD AUTHENTICALLY

What Would Love Do?

Love is always the answer. With love all conflict and chaos ends. Love inspires compassion, understanding, respect, appreciation, humanity … 🦋

Accepting What Is …

When we argue with what is, the facts or the truth about someone’s behaviour, the difficult circumstances we find ourselves in or perhaps the discomforting past, we find ourselves mentally and emotionally struggling, suffering or drowning in a tsunami of relentless pain.

Acceptance of what is, empowers us, it emboldens our courage to open that door in front of us and step into a new world of possibilities. 🦋

Let’s Begin Again

Let’s begin again. We have paused, reflected and felt the tug for more … life, joy, meaning and fulfillment. We’ve started to reimagine what our life could be. We’ve begun to ask ourselves the questions that dare us to reclaim that which matters most in the here and now. What do I really want? Why do I want it? How would I feel having it? Where do I begin? When do I take my first step? 🦋

Foreshadowing Outcomes

What we think affects how we feel, which in turn determines what we chose to do or not do, foreshadowing outcomes. 🦋

YO-YO-ING

Yes, we are human after all.

Right now, for many of us, our mental and emotional capacity, strength and resilience are being tested and stretched to their limits.

Most of us are yo-yo-ing through the restrictions and unpleasantness of living together yet separately in this unexpected covid-19 world.

One day, we are the hero’s and heroine’s of our story as we slay the slings and arrows of this outrageous pandemic and then the next day we can barely get out of bed let alone purge our house or write the next Pulitzer Prize book.

It’s okay to be zig zagging on our life’s continuum, to feel two things at the same time, to be grateful yet sad, energetic and productive yet lethargic and unmotivated.

Yes, we can be happy to have a home, food, health and safety, and yet feel angry about the unpleasant effects that COVID-19 is having on our lives.

Bottom-line, there is no right way to be, except to be real, honest and vulnerable with ourselves, to compassionately give ourselves permission to be whatever fits in the moment, to move through this ‘craziness’ one day at a time. 🦋

The Gift

The gift of Easter is hope, the divine anticipation of renewal, the glorious possibility of a new life. Happy Easter my friends. 🦋

In this historical moment, we are all united in a massive transformational shift, preparing ourselves to rise out of the ashes, renewed and ready for the world to reopen itself to the dawning of a new reality. 🦋

Stress Busters

When we’re stressed, hormones like cortisol flood our systems, producing the ‘fight flight or freeze response’ in which our heart rate goes up, we breathe more heavily and our blood vessels constrict. We don’t always have a choice when it comes to getting stressed, so we may as well work on undoing its effects. With that in mind, this photo has a few ways, backed up by scientific evidence, to keep our stress in check. 🦋

🎶 SING 🎶

Yes there is fear.

Yes there is isolation.

Yes there is panic buying.

Yes there is sickness.

Yes there is even death.

But,

They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise you can hear the birds again.

They say that after just a few weeks of quiet the sky is no longer thick with fumes but blue and grey and clear.

They say that in the streets of Assisi people are singing to each other across the empty squares,keeping their windows open so that those who are alone may hear the sounds of family around them.

They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.

Today a young woman I know is busy spreading fliers with her number through the neighbourhood so that the elders may have someone to call on.

Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples are preparing to welcome and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary

All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting.

All over the world people are looking at their neighbours in a new way.

All over the world people are waking up to a new reality, to how big we really are, how little control we really have and to what really matters.

To Love.

So we pray and we remember that yes there is fear. But there does not have to be hate.

Yes there is isolation. But there does not have to be loneliness.

Yes there is panic buying. But there does not have to be meanness.

Yes there is sickness. But there does not have to be disease of the soul

Yes there is even death. But there can always be a rebirth of love.

Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.

Today, breathe.

Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic.

The birds are singing again

The sky is clearing,

Spring is coming,

And we are always encompassed by Love.

Open the windows of your soul and though you may not be able to touch across the empty square,

Sing.

Breath 4-7-8

Resonant breathing, also called coherent breathing, can help us calm our anxiety, stress, overwhelm, and help us to get into a more relaxed state.

Deep breathing increases the supply of oxygen to our brain and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes a state of calmness.

I personally use and recommend to my clients the 4-7-8 breathing technique, that focuses on the following breathing pattern:

* empty the lungs of air.

* breathe in quietly through the nose for 4 seconds.

* hold the breath for a count of 7 seconds.

* exhale forcefully through the mouth, pursing the lips and making a “whoosh” sound, for 8 seconds.

* repeat the cycle up to 2-4 times.

I promise you that when you do this correctly, it will greatly reduce your anxiety, stress or overwhelm. 🦋

Pragmatic Optimism

‘Pragmatic Optimism’ is knowing that everything will be ok while we follow the recommendations made by authorities, showing good citizenship, being socially responsible and staying at home. 🦋

And the people stayed home.

And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still.img_3564

And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. And the people healed.

And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.

Coach Judit

Everything is going to be alright. Intuitively, we know this. We also know that we are strong, powerful and resilient.

Globally, we know that the pandemic will flatten, the dust will settle and we will return to normal, a slightly altered normal but normal nevertheless.

Let us remember…

That cool heads prevail, to discern the facts from the drama. To be informed but to stop news binging. To talk ourselves down from our anxiety by disproving our fear based inner dialogue with actual facts. 

And …

To breath deeply, to reduce our anxiety quickly and naturally.

To journal about our thoughts and feelings with pen and paper.

Review our options.

To think creatively.

Act responsibly, follow the rules laid out by our government and medical officials.

Focus our attention on daily random acts of kindness, ours and others.

Fear is normal, leverage it, get proactive, creative and productive.

Also …

Clean, organize and purge your home, car, office, electronic files ….

Start that creative project you’ve been thinking about.

Learn something new, read watch a documentary or e-learning …

Go for walks in the park. Play with your children. Jog. Meditate. Workout …

Reach out with a helping hand to the vulnerable and frail in your community.

Mend those fences, forgive and make peace.

Watch or listen to comedy! Dance! Listen to nature sounds, meditative music and your favourite bands, musicians.

Engage …

This is our time to govern our thoughts and feelings, open our heart and reach out to others with a helping hand and kindness.

If there was ever a time to have an immersive self-empowerment experience it’s now. Consciously, let us embody our authentic power and move forward with our innate creative power.

You are not alone, we are in this crisis together …

If you have positive, empowering, proactive, or pragmatic thoughts and recommendations to share, please comment below. 🦋

You Are The Decider

Nothing can trigger you except for your own perspective.

Nothing can restrain you except for your unruly imagination.

Nothing can control you except for your own unquestioned beliefs.

You are the source that reacts to people, situations and the world.

You are the decider, determining the quality of your experiences. 🦋

Empowered Women, Empower Humanity.

We’ve come a long way sisters and yet to this date there are barriers and violations against our basic human rights.

Women’s rights and gender equality are taking centre stage in 2020. This year’s theme for International Women’s Day (8 March) is, “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”. Together, we want to mobilize to end gender-based violence; we are calling for economic justice and rights for all; bodily autonomy, sexual and reproductive health and rights; and feminist action for climate justice. We want technology and innovation for gender equality; and feminist leadership’, (United Nations Women)

Together let us be #GenerationEquality. 🦋

Suffering Our Thoughts

How might your life be different if you decided to stop tolerating or suffering your own thoughts, void of clarity, confidence and courage.

How would your life be different if you dared yourself to move out of your comfort zone, tackled your fears and gave your self permission to live a more authentic version of whom you are?

Mmmm, imagine the joy, freedom, expansiveness, passion, aliveness, you would feel if you dared yourself to experience the life which is in your heart.

What are three things you can do today to start moving in the direction of your dreams? 🦋

Alchemizing Challenges

Challenges are significant opportunities waiting to be enlivened. Appreciative inquiry, attentiveness and proactivity can alchemize our challenges into golden moments of good fortune.🦋

Creating New Realities …

When we change our thoughts we change our world, we create a new reality. 🦋

Life’s Secret Sauce …

Self-love is a divine illumination that liberates our hearts and minds to be an authentic force for the goodness of ourselves and others. It is the secret sauce for a beautiful life lived well.

Self-love is the transformative alchemy we are all searching for to fix our messy lives, to cast out the darkness from our hearts, to right our wrongs, to breakthrough the barriers of our misguided creations, to reimagine our destiny and to recommit ourselves to the infinite wisdom of our collective oneness – we are in this game together.

Happy Valentines Day! 🦋

The One …

If they spark your soul you have met the one!

If they don’t spark your soul then in all likelihood you are making a complacent choice.

Junk food eating couch potatoes make complacent choices.

When it comes to love don’t be a couch potato, go for it, go for the spark. 🦋

Carry On or Reimagine?

Wondering why the quality of your life experiences are what they are?

Listen to your thoughts, self-talk, judgments and interpretations.

Feel your feelings.

Witness your reactions, behaviour and deeds.

Without exception everything we feel, do, and experience are the results of our thoughts of whom we believe we are.

Inherently, by design, we are free to choose what we think, what we believe.

We can choose to carry on or we can choose to reimagine. 🦋

How might your life be different if you believed that you are loved, lovable and loving? 🦋

Happy New Year 2020

2020, freedom from or freedom for?

Stop It

With each New Year Resolution that we commit to there are things we need to stop doing to create the space for the betterment of our life to take root. What will you stop doing in 2020? 🦋
