I am so excited to be back! After a long hiatus and well-deserved break I am coming back better than ever. The trip in Hawaii was amazing. I got to meet so many amazing women, explore the Big Island in style, and be in nature more than I have been in years!
My break from writing was a personal decision I had to make for myself and my business, in order to gain clarity on my next level. We have been growing, expanding and experiencing new levels and with that, there always come a “contracting” process.
I really want to explain what this means so that you understand how it works. This is a HUGE part of my coaching, not only with clients but also with myself. Below I am sharing with you a video from my trip to HAWAII, as I was going through the process so you get an idea of what that may look like. In the video I also ask you some questions that if you’re able to answer for yourself, you will be that much closer to the clarity you are seeking to reach your next level.
First I want to define what the expansion looks like. So, expansion is part of an experience and process that you go through whenever there are things that are causing you to grow. The energy feels very much as if you were putting your arms out and just feeling it come from inside of you and moving out of your body towards the world. Examples of expansion can be things like going to an event, finding a potential partner, loosing a ton of weight, or something as simple as being excited about an upcoming trip!
The contraction is the exact opposite. You have something that causes you to want to go inwards, to seek comfort and the energy feels like you want to go in the direction of your heart. Many times with this energy you will want to go into the fetal position in bed (or on the floor if it is a really bad one!).
Contraction examples are different because they can be positive or negative. You can contract in healthy ways like journaling, meditating, sleeping, taking a bath, or anything that brings the energy and focus on you. Negative ones can be binging on food, undoing all the work you did on yourself so you can feel “comfortable”, getting angry at someone when the contracting energy feels like too much, etc.
If you’re not aware of how these energies work and how to use them to your benefit, you will end up going into sabotaging mechanisms that can really throw you off your game.
So here is what you need to do in 3 easy steps!
Step 1. Understand that these energies are everywhere in your life. You experience contraction and expansion all the time, you may just not be consciously aware of how the Contraction/Expansion Mechanism™ works, so it has been doing damage without your understanding of how to use it.
Step 2. Create a plan for healthy ways of using the contraction when the expansion shows up or is planned in your life for things like trips/events/wedding?? 😉 Make up your mind that you will need to push yourself to expand when you experience a contraction coming from outside sources like your car just stopped working or the call you had with that prospective client was the worst experience of your life!
Step 3. Make it your new normal! It only happens through consistent action. Create the habits and make up your mind that you know EXACTLY what to do when this type of situation shows up. Soon you will be the master of your life and every situation will be under your loving control.
