Who am I and what is my soul purpose?
Who am I and what is my soul purpose?
Are you a stressed out mom?
As mothers, we have multiple tasks to fulfill such as preparing meals for our children, supervising their homework, and making sure their needs are met. We may also need to handle domestic chores, face our clients, run our businesses or meet work datelines as well as mange the household finance. It is no wonder that many mothers experience overwhelm. And should the relationships with our spouse be difficult, stress can hit a high.
“The first time around as a mom, I held on really tight and I was so stressed.” – Bridgette Wilson
Triggers for the Stressed Out Mom
Being a mother myself, I know that stress is something that I have to learn to overcome. While my children have brought me tremendous joy, bringing them up has certainly not been a walk in the park. One stress trigger for me is trying to meet the demanding educational standards here in Singapore.
Imagine walking over hot coals in a firewalk experience at around 1200 degrees Farenheit (650 degrees Celcius). The firewalk experience covers about 15 feet which will take an average of 5-7 steps and therefore, it’s long enough to create burns. It would be potentially more injurious say than getting scalded by boiling water from a kettle.
Sounds scary? Well, Tony Robbins Unleash the Power Within (UPW) Event has a firewalk experience that can be risky and yet life-changing. I decided to take up the challenge last week when I attended the event here in Singapore.
For the firewalk experience, a temperature reading is taken using an infrared laser thermometer before the coals are declared ready to be walked on. It is a rite of passage for breaking limits. In case you don’t already know, firewalks have been used by many cultures over the years, as a symbolic act of faith, initiation and courage.
Would you be up for a firewalk? While it is voluntary, I’d say that it would be crazy not to give it a go. After all, if you have said “yes” to attending to a UPW event, it helps to keep an open mind. And it does not matter even if you were pulled along to attend one. Continue reading
Supermoon energies can be disruptive, causing you to experience major upheavals. And the next Supermoon event is happening soon on Jan 31! Allow me to share some tips on how you can handle some of the intense energies going on during this period. By being prepared, you are better able to meet any challenges that arise with greater insight and understanding.
For a start, just reflect on recent happenings….
Is this true for you….like you’ve been called to be bolder, take a risk…step out of your comfort zone…release fears….yet the invitation to step up is also happening in a dramatic fashion?
If so, I bet the shifts have been uncomfortable. You’ve been wanting to make a bold move but you are also caught up in your old limiting stories once again. And so, you’ve been holding back.
What’s more the inner conflict could be manifesting in a negative physical incident for you. It may be an accident, an argument, things not going as planned or as usual and so on. These were examples that actually happened to a few of those who I spoke to. In fact, I personally encountered a disruptive incident which took me by surprise. It was supposed to be a soul nurturing exercise but it did not happen that way. Luckily, I was able to set aside my hurt and acknowledged how I had contributed to the issue at hand quickly.
How to believe in yourself could be a question that confounds you when you don’t find yourself special, unique or have any attributes that make you stand out. Believing can feel “hard” when you perceive that you have got nothing to show for. As someone who has wrestled with low confidence for years, I understand how difficult it must be to know where to start.
How do you even begin the process of believing in yourself? If you tend to downplay yourself in every way, believing in yourself can be a difficult exercise. Well, I would like to share what has worked for me with some of the tips in this post.
Resigning yourself that you will never find out how to believe in yourself is not the answer. You already know by now what low confidence can do to you. The outcome is downright miserable.
Aura colors vary from one person to the next, in its hue, width and so on. They offer information about your overall well-being. From a reading, it is possible to obtain energetic information about your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual states. It is in the variations that provide a more accurate reading.
All living things radiate aura colors. Not everyone can see them….except for the gifted few. The gifted ones are able to access the auric fields to perform energy healing.To put it simply, the auric field is the electromagnetic field which surrounds your human body. Energy healing may be done to correct imbalances in your energy state that affect your wellness.
To find out what aura colors you vibrate, you may wish to get an aura photography and reading done. Alternatively, do the Aura Colors test below. It wouldn’t be the same as getting an aura reading done, but you can find out which aura color you are vibrating through a quick quiz.
Positive affirmations for women are helpful to use if you are struggling with limiting beliefs due to gender issues. For instance, do you have the view or negative self-talk that you are less deserving of success, less worthy of respect or that you can’t make as much money because you perceive yourself to be the weaker sex? Or that you need to be of certain body proportions to qualify as being more attractive?
Well, what you say to yourself is backed by the limiting beliefs that you hold. Hence, I suggest changing your thought patterns so that you can bring about a more balanced state of empowerment. Your beliefs have an impact on your life experiences.
You can find yourself experiencing low self-esteem, poor body image, inability to accept aging as you approach your 40s or 50s and difficulties with manifesting money and abundance. As I have found from working with others, more women than men tend to struggle with issues related to gender roles because of the disparity in society’s expectations of them.If you have immense challenges with accepting and appreciating your role as a woman, I recommend using positive affirmations to reverse old thinking.
How about taking a free chakra test to find out which of your 7 energy centers is out of balance?
I have been using the chakra system as a guide for personal awareness and to work with clients for several years now. It will be great to share with you on how comprehensive it is as a roadmap for conscious living.
The chakra system offers an excellent framework for an understanding of your energy system. There are 7 major chakras, which are energy centers in your body. In Hindi, chakras simply mean “wheels of spinning energy”. Indeed, a chakra is like a whirling, vortex-like, powerhouse of energy. You have got 7 major vortexes or energy centers that line up like the picture below…
The chakra system is akin to having an electrical wiring system within your inner home. It allows electrical current to be sent to every part of your being. It regulates the flow of energy throughout the network (meridians) that runs throughout your physical body.
Taking a chakra test can help you to determine which – out of the 7 energy centers – is out of balance or blocked. Out-of-balance chakras or chakra blocks usually happen at the energy centers. Your chakras can get blocked because of stress, emotional or physical root causes.Continue reading
There are many benefits of meditation. I hope to share with you what these are, especially if you are new to this practice. Over the years, meditation has made a huge difference to my life. Hopefully, it can help increase your holistic wellness too 🙂
While there are already many articles describing the benefits of meditation on the internet, I hope to share what I have gained from my personal experiences as well.
On the side, I would like to dedicate this post in memory of my mother-in-law who first introduced meditation to me. It was more than 10 years ago when she taught me how to meditate. My mother-in-law was 70 when she became a Buddhist nun who was very interested in meditation.
Are you in any emotional pain?
Was it due to some past traumatic event or situation that you can’t let go of?
Is there a long-standing physical symptom that also goes with your emotional pain such as a dull but throbbing heart ache, stabs on the back, weight on the shoulder or a paralysing sensation that numbs you on your hands and legs?
Or could you also be feeling emotional pain whenever you are tuning into the pain-body that is part of collective whole? Just think about the negative news that you have been reading….on all the senseless terrorist attacks, for instance. It’s been affecting you and everyone else.
Well….whether it is personal or it comes from being part of society, it is possible to clear the emotional pain such that the energetic charge is either gone or reduced. Even if you had been holding on to it for a long time.
Do you have a part of you that does not believe that you can build a thriving business from your soul gifts?
Perhaps, you have psychics or even coaches telling you what your soul gifts are and about how you should simply step into your unique brilliance and do work that you love. Or about how deserving and worthy you are of all that abundance.
Except that you don’t totally believe that it is true.
Definitely, NOT 100% on your belief scale!
As you reflect over on the gifts, skill sets and what you have to offer in the world, you are feeling as if you are “nothing special” or that there is “nothing unique” about you.
