Feeling Good comes from Within!

Hey Queens! Let’s talk about feeling good…We live in a time where just about EVERYTHING is related to how it looks on the surface and not the vitality of whats underneath. Including how we look at ourselves at times. When things aren’t together within us we can be quick to pick up our makeup bags and try to cover it up (i’ve done it). Or dress up and go out to run away from whats going on within (i’ve done that too). Or even use drugs and alcohol to ease our minds to soothe again whats going on within us (Guilty Again)! You see Queen’s these are all ways of self sabotage…. I’m no judge here as I admit to have fallen prey to all theses ways to numb my own pain. Rather it was a bad break-up, my feelings were hurt, family issues, money issues, you name it! The thing about all those ‘coping mechanisms’ are they’re only TEMPORARY.  Once you take your make-up off, or you come from a ‘fun’ night out, or when the weed and liquor wears off. Whatever the problem smacks you in the face 10x harder. The challenge lies in feeling the pain and allowing time to heal it, if you keep covering it up it will eventually begin to bleed into other areas of your life. The problem within you begins to show up outside of you. As above, so below…As within, so without.  This is where you have to drop the BullS*hit, and face yourself. Tap in and check-IN with yourself Queen. How does that particular issue hurt? Where does it hurt? How did you allow it to happen? How long has it been a problem before you realized? If you heal this problem who would you be? Who could you be? Feel how you feel and decide how you want to heal and feel. Take your power back Queen! Replace those bad habits with good ones. Every time you want to smoke, go workout instead. Every time you wanna reach for that bottle, pick up that book you’ve been wanting to read forever. Every time you wanna cover yourself up in attempt to run from the problem ask yourself how would you feel if not only you look good, but FELT good. Imagine the glow you’ll have have once you take your time to go through to GROW through. You see Queen, we can run from what’s going on within but we can’t hide. And there’s absolutely NOTHING outside of you that can soothe you within substantially just temporarily.img_9755-e1501461263730.jpgy.  You’re made up 3 entities that are 1 you (Mind, Body, and soul) which is why its absolutely necessary to love, nurture, care & Protect yourself on each level. As women we are so consumed with nurturing everyone around us as thats our innate power and ability , that we can be completely out of touch with who we are.  Please refer back to my last post on loving and nurturing yourself Queen. Tune into you, pay attention to your thoughts, are you negative? Do you gossip too much? How are you treating your body ? Have you gained weight, do you consciously eat or treat your body like a dumpster? Do you make others respect your body? Wait, ask yourself do you respect your own body? Listen to your spirit Queen…do you feel like there’s a part of you who can overcome all you’ve been through if only you can bare staring all your pain in the face?  Your spirit is infinite Queen, you can overcome it all. This is your Journey go through to grow through. Come out a newer, better, stronger, wiser you. Everything you go through is to grow you, make you, not BREAK you. And even if you’re broken, realize you have the power to put all your Pieces back together PEACEFULLY. That’s just how powerful you are Queen… always remember just how good or bad the reality of your life is says everything about the woman you are within. Chose to feel good within Queen, so within can reflect without. As above, so below! Love and Light to you Queen…until next time…-Ariel

As Women, by nature we are nurturers. Nurturers to our children, spouses, in our workplaces, friends, etc. But we can become so consumed with caring for others that we often times forget about nurturing and caring for ourselves. Getting quiet and still enough to listen to our Minds, Bodies, And Spirit to know what it takes to keep ourselves nurtured and balanced in all areas of our lives. Giving the Fact that as women we are the receptors we must be receptive to our own needs. In order to be receptive of our needs we must continuously listen to ourselves. The intuition is the mind of our heart, we aren’t taught how to consciously use and listen the wisdom of our heart/intuition. Our intuition isn’t based on what we can touch,taste,smell,hear or see. Our intuition is what and how we feel, its a knowing beyond what you know. You just know it! You don’t need concrete evidence to actualize what you can feel just trust yourself. If something, someone, someplace doesn’t feel right; Let it go. This is one of many steps to loving yourself by honoring yourself. We all know how it feels to not listen to or honor ourselves. It’s that constant “something told me not to.” That something is YOU, listen to yourself, get quiet and check in with your self. Realize where and when you block out your intuition and let it back in. Our heart’s can only lead us if and when we allow it. If it doesn’t feel good 90% of the time because its not. I’ll say the other ten percent of what doesn’t feel good are growing pains when we becoming reactive to what we’re uncomfortable with because of what we are comfortable with. Get comfortable being uncomfortable, because it’s only there when you become the Butterfly after the Caterpillar shed it’s last skin. Listen to yourself, feel yourself, take charge of yourself, free yourself. Rather it be leaving that friendship, job, relationship, old habit, old way of thinking, old way of being. Thats called loving yourself, you deserve your love more than anyone you can give it to, and you truly can’t love another sis until truly know what it takes to love yourself. Go and Love Yourself QUEEN! How can you possibly know what’s broken within you if you can’t listen to whats going on within you? A Drama Queen lives and thrives in Chaos,  hear the chaos and chose to heal and rise above it to become the Peace Queen. You deserve to be at Peace Queen. Love and Light! – Ariel selflove-dylanglynn
