Adjust Your Approach to Triggers and Change Your Mindset

You decide to make a change in your life. It’s a big deal and you wanna go for it; but, you don’t know how, and you’ve not been provided the steps on how to make this change. You hear about adjusting your mindset, and attmept to create the change. However, it backfires and you feel like a failure. So, now what. It’s not to say that you’re unintelligent, and assuming that you have all the answers is unfair. We all have expertise, something that we’re amazing at.

Adjust Your Mindset

Can you hear your inner wisdom
Adjust change mindset channel

The old idea (fake it until you make it) is fading away and authenticity is much more powerful. It doesn’t mean that you have to have all the answers. I love driving my car, but I don’t desire to be the one to repair it when it breaks down; therefore, I go to an expert called the mechanic. It’s a win-win.

The same thing is true about how to identify what’s  a trigger. As well as how to effectively dissolve the trigger in a manner that works, and is not destructively ineffective.

Thus, this allows you to break a pattern. It is the acknowledgement and the recognition that brings forth the healing. This allows you to move through your emotions and feelings in a positive manner when you’re able to identify what upsets you and/or creates anxiety.

It’s going to be okay, and it’ll take a bit of adjustment and some time. Soon you’ll be about work with and through your emotions. This empowers your own personal development. Which can set you eons apart from those who have not learned how to effectively communicate with their inner being and soul.

How incredible is that? I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to be able to share this personal development tool and help your soul grow. Self-compassion and self-love are powerful empowerment tools.

Be patient with yourself. It takes time to unravel and undo learned behaviors and patterns. Think of this as a way to adjust your thought patterns from a negative to a more positive solution and outcome.

How to recognize a trigger:

Fluid Movement Flower Delicate

A trigger is when you feel uncomfortable. As if you’re feeling uncomfortable in your own skin, afraid, anxious, or mad. Basically it’s your emotions. Next time you get triggered go through this process.

  • Stop allowing your emotions to control you.
  • Except that you have emotions.
  • Recognize that using your emotions to feel is your superpower.
  • Recognize when you feel uncomfortable.
  • Allow yourself to feel: whether it be sad, mad, happy.
  • Be honest with yourself. For example if a friend or relative shares good news and you feel envious. That’s an emotional trigger
  • Have you realized that when you’re having a conversation with another that a particular emotion or feeling emotes sensation that is uncomfortable and you just wished end the conversation as soon as possible?
  • Have you realized that when you were hanging out with family or friends that a particular conversation is uncomfortable, and you feel?

Moving Through the Trigger

A great way to recognize emotional triggers is to journal. Use one of the writing prompts below or free write. Have a conversation with yourself on a piece of paper. This is a great way for you to express how you’re feeling, what emotions are showing up for you, in a safe manner that is reflective and constructive. Practice a conversation that you would like to have with someone in the mirror or in your journal but do not create a false expectation. you are not in control of anyone else’s reactions emotions or feelings. You can only take care of you in this manner, and that’s okay.

Writing Prompts:

  1. Write about a conversation you wish you could have.
  2. Create a timeline of small events that led up to a big event in your life.
  3. Write a poem about the greatest joy or the greatest sorrow in your life right now.
  4. Describe your greatest insecurity and why you struggle with it.
  5. Choose a song that emotes deep emotions. Why does it?
  6. What is your greatest source of guilt and how can you forgive yourself?

Maybe journaling is not your thing. Doddle an image and add words to this image.

Gentle Reminder:

Be sure to recognize. Every pattern and trigger has a cycle, and when you are learning, there may be an old pattern that wishes to stop the cycle. Disallow this occurrence. When you stop a cycle this cycle will recycle. This is part of personal development and soul growth that until the lesson is learned it will continue onward at any cost; however when you are learning I’m you stop the cycle this can create more havoc than is necessary. Allow yourself to release, let’s go of the outcomes and expectations and flow into the experience. It takes time to adjust I’m not okay one step at a time is better than no steps or motion at all.

How to be Authentic

Have you heard the whispers in the air, the lull of the moon, the dance of the waves. Your authentic self calls to you, please come to me, let me be me.

One thing is for sure, your soul will not allow you to hide, procrastinate nor ignore. The energy vibes are calling, whispering, saying your truth and the more that you try to ignore or hide, the stronger the vibes may become.

It’s as if you soul is standing up and saying enough; enough with your shenanghans.  I am here in the now; now follow me.

Authentic Magical Wellness 17 Believe in me True me

The old 3D adage of fake it until you make it, no longer rings true. It is an old pattern and belief established in the third dimension; the awakened consciousness no longer tolerates this type of shenanghans.

In fact this may create more dissidence than helpfulness. Your inner peace will sound like a siren screaming it’s head off- “You fraud, that’s false.” Please note that your authentic voice is more powerful than a meek or false voice. The 7D toll of the bell, rings of love, of truth, of light. It requires for you to let go of your mask(s), and stand in your true, authentic power.

The haters are gonna hate

There will be those who disagree. Okay, why do they have more power over you, than you do of yourself? Use your authentic voice, show the world who you really are, and the world will answer your call, and step up to form a clearer path as to how you will go about your soul’s blueprint and why you are here.

Now, this is not to say, that you cannot insist on “your way” aka the idea of “free will.” I am here to gently emphasize that this is a 3 year in numerology, where your inner-most heartfelt desires are set to take form.   Get ready to open your wings & FLY or flop.


Ultimately the choice is up to you. No one is in your way, but you.

Authentic Ways For You to Show up

Here are a few ways to show up in an authentic manner, which can calm the storm of the lesson if you allow. 

Ways to be authentic:

  1. Is this a feeling, emotion or thought? 
  2. Ask yourself what am I feeling? Sad, mad, happy, anxious, calm and more. Spend time with the feeling; sit with it; do not move on it. Take 3 deep breaths. Now how do you feel?
  3. Allow yourself to feel this emotion.  Do not ignore it, this will tighten its grip- Breathe in and out as the emotion happens. Rest for a moment, reflect on what this is teaching you. Inhale and then exhale by releasing the emotion and re-setting yourself. Give yourself space to flow through the emotion.
  4. Is the thought useful, benefical or is it an old story that wants attention? Inhale the thought, do nothing else and then exhale letting it go. Don’t hold onto it. Breath it out and ask the angels/spirit to take it from here.
  5. Where did the feeling, emotion or thought originate from? Pay careful attention to the signs that your emotional body is sending to your physical body (i.e.  is your chest tight- then breath into your heart center and allow the emotion to flow in and out of you-almost like an ocean wave). Disease holds onto the body and the origination is a feeling, emotion or thought: DIS-EASE.
  6. Is this actually a belief?  What is the illusion that you are trying to convince yourself as your truth?
  7. Reiki and Distance Healing is a great way to help you to rest, reflect and re-set.

The World Needs You to Dance With Yourself

This is from a metaphoric stance; and, yet it is key to be you. There is no one like you. You are perfect just as you are, and the world needs you to be you. In the words of Dr. Suess, “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

May you always be blessed by being you!

Oodles of Love,

Natasha

How Snow Crystals Can Provide Self-Love Enlightenment

Snow Crystal Enlightenment Fractal Water Snowflake Sacred Geometry
Snow Crystal Enlightenment

Water and Emotions

Water is the ebb and flow representation of emotions.  It’s best to keep this free flowing and help you: cleanse, release, replenish and restore yourself.

Snow is a solid form of the water.  Each ice crystal comes together to create a lovely snowfall.  Each snowflake is unique. There are no two others that are alike.  The same is true for you.  

Snow and Our Soul

Snow Crystals are fractals. Fractals are sacred geometry and natural components that can help you better speak with your soul, and guide you to enlightenment.

Snow can represent the pure serenity of your soul during the cold, dark winter months.  This is a great time for slowness and reflection. However, this can often be forgetten with the onset of modern times and everything at your fingertips twenty-four hours a day.

Time to Play

Snow play was so much fun when we are kids.  As adults we work a lot.  

Let’s take a moment to make our own snowflake. You enjoy this by yourself or with your family.  

How to Make a Soul Snowflake

Materials:

  • A Sheet of White Paper
  • Scissors
  • Marker (if necessary)
  • Glitter
  • Spray glue
  • Imagination
How to make a Soul Snowflake

Step 1: 

Take the right corner of the top tip of the paper and bring this down to create a triangle.

Smooth out the crease.

It should look like a sailboat sail.

Take marker and draw a line to help cut a straight line.

How to make a soul snowflake

Step 2: 

Bring the tips together and make a triangle.

Press your fingertip to make a crease.

Step 3: 

Be careful to not cut the crease.

Use your imagination and cut designs into the paper.

Step 4: 

Carefully open up the paper and reveal your snowflake.

Option: You may wish to glue glitter to your snowflake or color.  This is solely up to you!

May you enjoy your soul snowflake as beautifully, unique as you!  

DR. EOMOTO’S WORK: 

Dr. Masaru Emoto was a Japanese author, researcher, photographer and entrepreneur, who claimed that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water.  He is best known for taking images of water.  Through his observations, he began to freeze water and see the feelings from words.

Please look at Dr. Emoto’s water chart and see what Soul Snowflake that you created:

Mine is similar to Harmony.

Connecting Your Soul Snowflake to You

Connecting Your Soul Snowflake to You

Divine spirit flows in a graceful manner.  Ego causes havoc, stress and a mess.

Snow is pure, tranquil and serene.  The divine essence is connecting with your soul in this manner.  Your soul is pure and harmonious which expounds the deep joy that you feel.  

Let’s reflect on the beauty of a quiet, snow setting. Fractals help you enlighten deep within; let your snowflake fractal show your calm beautiful soul. Self-love is soul love, and a deep soul connection can help provide you a way to love yourself first.

Taking Time to Connect With Your Soul

How to make a soul snowflake

Light a candle and sit with your snowflake.

What does it say to you?

Now, use one of the two writing prompts or use both:

  • Every snowflake is unique, I am unique because…
  • I love myself first…

If you find writing tasking, set a timer for 5 minutes and write, keep the pen moving and allow this to flow to you. There are no worries, and no teacher looking for perfect grammar.  I am teacher of writing, and when it flows from your heart; there is no need to be “perfect.” Your writing in this moment is wonderful for you!

I truly hope that you enjoyed this soul journey exercise and activity!

Oodles of Love,

Natasha
