Self-Care is Authentically Loving You

There is much a breast about what authenticity means. In my previous article, How to be Authentic, we explore and discover ways to tap into your authenticity; but, also allowing yourself to be the best that you can be at any given moment.

You’re amazing!

You’re truly unique. Dear Heart- you’re one of a kind.

Your life is not a sifi/horror channel recreation. You’re pure perfection.

Self-Care is Loving You

Self-care is authentically loving you.

It’s a way to say that you’re enough. That you’re valuable, and worth taking care of. This doesn’t have to be grandiose. It’s the moment by moment in your life; where you’re taking care of yourself before helping anyone.

I get it once upon a time,  I found myself feeling less than thereof, and creating a monstrosity by taking care of everyone else. Thinking this was the best thing in the world, and that  I was the greatest in the world for doing so. Yet, there would be moments of irritation, frustration and varied darkness of regret. I was exhausted by making sure that everyone else was fulfilled, and I didn’t fill my own emotional cup.


Unchain Yourself

When this was happening,  I also wasn’t able to tap into my true authentic inner being. There were  moments in time that I felt like a gigantic fraud. Here I am competing with pretty much no one, but my own self about how awesome and wonderful I am, and yet my own needs were unmet. I was writing my own satire tragedy.

After years of neglect and absolute exhaustion my dear sweet soul sounded me with her vibrancy. It was as if a bell sounded; my heart and soul knowing how to lead me out of this darkness. Don’t fret, if you’ve found yourself in this manner. There’s a way to release and let go of the nonsense, and start over. You get as many chances as you need. I’m pretty sure my angels look like they were drug through the mud sparkes of light; but, we made it, and I’m filling my own well, and thrilled to enjoy the excitement that occurs with authentic self-caring love.

Come join us.

I created: Self-Love Magic

When  I was taking better care of myself is when I discovered my true authentic magical powers, and I really want you to be able to tap into your wisdom and bring forth your beautiful authentic self.  It’s incredible, to love and care for yourself first and foremost. After a bit, you’ll be able to transfer your caring, love to others, but not disclude yourself. Gone are the days of feeling desolate, less than there are of, irritated, exhausted and so much more.


Authentic Self Care:

Self Care = taking care of you

Authentic =  your true inner being

Authentic Self Care =  taking care of your true inner being

  1. Know your value- Do you believe that you’re enough?
  2. Let’s practice self-talk- Start the day on a positive. Write in a journal 3 things that you are grateful about. In fact, grateful hearts are manifestation magnets. The more grateful the easier it is to attract what you want.
  3. Profess your potential and success (big or small)- Make bold declarations: Yes, I am awesome!  I made coffee like a boss! Girl you rocked making dinner!
  4. Use Positive Affirmations- Begin by finding positive affirmations that you like. Write it on post it notes, and place this in locations you will see throughout the day.
  5. Make Meaningful Relationships-Do you have people who add and deposit their light and love to you? Or do you have those who make frequent withdrawals and leave you without hope or exhausted? It’s hard, but sometimes we need to let go of those who are not on our side. It may feel scary, but in the long run, it’ll help bring those who are celebrating and supporting you as you celebrate and support them.
  6. Self-care is real– Go for that walk in nature, take a nice hot bath, take a nap, drink water, enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea, enjoy that piece of dark chocolate, eat healthy, the list goes on and on. Your self-care is not like others as you are not like others. It is nice to have a general idea; and yet, I encourage you to explore and discover what’s important to you and your self-care.

It’s go time: Putting this into Practice:

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.

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

How to Let Go of Mental Chatter


“It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all.”

Lyrics from Frozen 

Storm Brewing 

Do you ever feel as if there is a storm swirling inside? You turn right and there are reminders of failures. You turn left and there’s a darkness that resides deep inside. “Conceal don’t feel; don’t let them know.”  Frozen

Let it Go Fractal Sacred Geometry Mental Debris Unravel Mental Chatter Mental Health

Clearing Out the Babble

First of all, do not feel bad. This is a learned behavior. Yep, someone caused and created this deep within you. It may have occurred when you were little and you had no clue: Who, when or where. Or, this began when you were older through circumstances that left you feeling less than thereof.

Have you felt like you have to be a good little girl or good little boy even though you’re a grown ass adult? Unfortunately, been there done that; and so weary with whoever deemed what is a good girl or good boy. Seriously, who is in charge of this? We are all raised differently, and unless you are hurting yourself or another; is there really the notion of perfect good or bad?

Raging Storm

There is so much that can clutter your mental state and your eccentricities. Think of negative chatter as negative mental clutter and debris. Believe it or not, the human mind is conditioned to go to the negative much more than the positive. Deep within you is a worry, doubt, and sloth-like movement of inertia, restlessness, hatred, competition and much more. Hence, why it is so much easier to go to the negative. It is engrained and instilled in us from the moment conception brings forth a fetus. Think of this as if the amniotic fluid brewed this into us, and we may be doomed from the beginning.

I am safe

Ultimately, you desire to be safe. Showing others your power & wisdom may not have gone so well in the past; thus, safety is where you felt you needed to stay. This need for safety creates a cringe in your soul; dear heart it is only an opinion; it may have been a mistake; but by golly, it is not a life sentence.

Thereupon, we are surrounded by opinions which can cause much grief. Perspectives that do not match society are often frowned upon. Who is the “police, judge and jury?” of such ideas. There are so many righteous groups; but, they are not right. It’s an opinion, and not everyone has the same opinion.

Your perspective is a valuable fresh way to look at the old. Sometimes the old is great and can continue on as such; however, there are times when the good old days or ideas need a fresh new viewpoint.

Stardust

Think of negative mental chatter as dust that can be swept and blown to the wind. Once the negative is removed; you can then see the stardust that exists. You, my dear heart are stardust. You are meant to shine like that star that you are. Your perspective is yours alone; no one else can do what you can. Some may try to copy or pretend to be you, but you were created as an individual miracle; therefore no one can do or be you. Be one with the sky: sparkle and shine the gloriousness that is you.

Fractal Enlightenment Magical Wellness 17

Fractal Enlightenment 

A fractal is a geometric or physical structure irregular or fragmented shape. Sacred geometry provides us a way to see things in a much unique aspect. This can help you to feel fulfilled. We are all seeking a deep gratification. Unfortunately, we are taught that this is outside of us. However, this begins within us. We are much like a fractal; an irregular shape. We are all unique and different; just as our thoughts and perspectives. This is what makes us so amazing!

Through fractal enlightenment, you are removing yourself from the default setting. This is the fetus setting that we are pre-programmed with. At one point in time, those who birthed us and raised us began to assimilate and pawn their beliefs upon us. As the good soldiers, we graciously lapped this up.

Suddenly, somewhere deep within us we awaken and wonder what in the hell did we agree to the polar opposite of what we are here to do. Much of what we are here is to perform to the best of our knowledge that which our soul knows. It is the allowance and breaking through the norm. Our magic is deep inside us; fractal enlightenment helps provide a way for us to break free. This is moving from the unconscious to the subconscious; or allowing ourselves to be more mindful. Gone is the need for competition with another and instilled is the necessity to acquire the vastness that is deep within.

This brings forth the question of the status quo and you stretch out of your comfort zone; seeking ways of engagement that your soul came to learn and grow from this existence. There is nothing to stop you; you grow beyond and align with the infinite. Thus, the joyous adventure begins. You actively seek ways for you to let go of the mental blocks, negative chatter and coordinate with your soul DNA blueprint. The best way to say this; is get out of your head; get out of your way, and you will soar like never before and beyond your imagination.

Oodles of Love,

Natasha
