People I love – Jeff Brown

Occasionally I will share from people I absolutely A-D-O-R-E.

Jeff Brown rocks my world again and again with his writings via facebook.

I’m raising my cup of coffee to conscious armoring!!!!!

 “Being a sensitive person can be a confusing, complicated thing in this still harsh world. It feels intuitively right to open, to feel, to enhearten our daily life, but the world is still vibrating at a more armored and edgy place. It is not yet attuned to the ways of the open heart. So what to do? We don’t want to deaden our capacity to feel, but if we feel too much, we get run over by an often heartless world. I have found my best answer in three places: (1) Selective Attachment; that is- carefully discerning between positive and negative individuals and environments, and only attaching to those people and places that can hold our tender heart safe; (2) Strong energetic boundaries; that is- being physically and emotionally charged, so that we can more effectively repel unwelcome energies; (3) Conscious Armoring; that is- learning how to put on armor when necessary to manage the world and difficult situations, and, consciously removing it when it is no longer needed. If we cultivate these practices, we stand a much better chance of preserving our sensitivity. Once we lose it, we lose our connection to the moment altogether. Here’s to a sensitive way of being! What a courageous path.”

Thank you Jeff Brown

What season are you in right now?

Much like life you and your life have seasons.

A season to harvest ideas.

A season for reflection and hibernation.

A season to flourish, grow and give life all you’ve got.

A season to frolic in the goodness of what you’ve created.

A season to _______________________ (fill in the blank)

Don’t believe anyone that tells you you can be ON all the time.

They are talking utter bullshit.

We all need time to rest, to grow, to go go go, to express and hey to do fuck all.

Start noticing what season you are in right now.

Embrace your season.

Enjoy it.

Love, Star

Dolla Dolla Bill y’all

Money.

Whether you love her

Or hate her (side note: money becomes more friendly when I make ‘it’ a female).

She ain’t going anywhere.

We need her.

Some say she’s just a form of energy.

I say she’s money.

It keeps it simple that way.

My advice……..

R-E-S-P-E-C-T money.

Years ago I didn’t.

And lost nearly everything.

Nowadays my relationship with money is ‘tight’.

I R-E-S-P-E-C-T her.

I S-A-V-E.

I’m aware of what comes in and what goes out.

There’s a flow.

Sometimes the out flow exceeds the in flow.

That’s my signal to….

STOP spending.

Old habits die hard.

It’s all a process.

I LOVE money.

I LOVE having it everywhere!

I LOVE earning it, spending it AND saving it.

Money & I have a good relationship.

Money & I are rocking it out!

Love, Star

Procrastination is my bitch (and she knows it!)

Procrastination.

She’s everywhere.

She wakes up with.

She follows you around.

She sits with you.

She watches you.

She knows everything about you.

SO….

You might as well befriend her.

Acknowledge her presence.

Say nice things to her.

BUT….

Don’t ever let her be in charge.

She’s your bitch.

Own her.

***REAL LIFE EXAMPLE***

This morning before my gym session.

I cuddled the dog.

Checked my eyebrows.

Sat down and cuddled the dog.

Talked to the dog.

Talked to my son.

Made a drink.

Sat at the computer.

Scrolled through facebook.

Wandered around my house.

Talked to the dog.

Walked the dog.

Got a coffee.

Stroked the dog.

Went to the gym!!!!

At around the coffee point, I had a feeling that Ms Procrastination thought I was her bitch.

I stood my ground.

I remembered she’s my bitch.

I went to the gym.

Love, Star

How to ditch the shame

Promise me one thing.

Just one thing.

Stop thinking some emotions are good (ie happy).

And some emotions are bad (ie jealously).

All emotions are just emotions.

They are all equally the same as each other.

Emotions are here to show us something.

IF we choose to look at them deeper.

Labelling certain emotions as “bad” always leads us down the shame/blame route.

And that aint never pretty.

Lose the labels.

Embrace and express your emotions (if you choose to and if you don’t want to that’s ok too).

Ditch the shame.

Love, Star

The Big Leap

There is a book by Gay Hendricks called The Big Leap

I read it years ago (on recommendation from the utterly fabulous Rebecca Leone.)

I didn’t take much notice of it.

He talked about the idea that when we step up in a bigger version of ourselves our subconscious has a set point as to how fucking magnificent we can be.

And will sabotage all our efforts forthwith!

 

As I said I didn’t take much notice of it.

Until…..

Last week when I closed my existing business.

Ready and willing to step up into my biggest, boldest version of me.

I suddenly found my bitch mode firmly activated.

I started to cause rows with my partner (for no reason).

We didn’t talk for days.

I continued being a bitch.

Until….

I spoke this all out to my friend.

I realised what I (or more importantly my subconscious) was doing.

The awareness hit me like a thunderbolt.

I stopped making excuses for cuntish behaviour.

I said sorry.

And I meant it.

I bid a strong fuck you to my subconscious.

She knows I’m watching her.

And

That makes all the difference.

When the mood takes you……

Ride it honey, ride it.

The only constant in life is change.

So when you are feeling up, FEEL IT!

Fling your hair back and jump in head first.

Embrace your energy spurts.

Straddle the waves of inspiration.

Enjoy the adrenaline pump.

And share the buzz with everyone around you.

Then when this moment passes (because all moments pass.)

Know that there will be another one.

Just around the corner.
