“Nothing has meaning until you place meaning upon it” – ACIM⠀

“Nothing has meaning until you place meaning upon it” – ACIM⠀

“Nothing has meaning until you place meaning upon it” – ACIM⠀

Let’s dig into this idea…⠀

This is a phrase I use often when I feel like I am out of alignment and allowing my negative thought patterns to run their loop. You know what I mean, you get triggered (usually by something outside of yourself) and then those old tapes start to play…⠀

Here’s the deal about anything that happens outside of yourself… it only has meaning if YOU place meaning in it! Often, we use past experiences and self-defeating thoughts to make up this meaning, and then that negative “loop spiral” starts…⠀

So what can you do instead…⠀

Become self-aware and recognize when your loop spiral comes up and stop for a minute to check-in.

Ask yourself what am I making this mean? ⠀

How can I see this with fresh eyes and let go of the meaning I am placing on this?⠀

What is this moment making possible for me?⠀

Use this practice (notice I said practice, I still use this often) to realign yourself and focus back on feeling good anytime your start to get into your loop spiral. ⠀

NOTICE, PRACTICE, and repeat!!

Lots of love to you this week,
Carmen

Life is a manifestation of what goes on in your mind.

Life is a manifestation of what goes on in your mind.

Life is a manifestation of what goes on in your mind….

Each day we set out to be better than we were the day before, yet somehow things seem to stay the same at the end of the day; why is that? It all comes down to our beliefs, and let me tell you they are deep-rooted!

“We think somewhere between 60,000 to 70,000 thoughts in one day.. 90 percent of those thoughts are exactly the same ones we had the day before.” ~ Joe Dispenza

Change happens when we consciously work each day to still our minds, build new thought patterns, and then recognize when old thought patterns are coming in and reframe them. It is a practice, but you can learn to recognize these patterns over time. These patterns are brought on normally by external stimulation, which activates a feeling or emotion, triggering an old thought pattern. Sneaky how that works!

Here are a few ideas to get started:

1. Start your day with a mediation that affirms only good in your life.
2. Set a timer on your phone to remind you to take 4 long deep, relaxing breaths every 2 hours.
3. Consume less. This means absolutely everything: background music while you work, podcasts, TV, and social media.

The goal of all of this- is to feel free finally!

Here’s to thinking high vibe this week,

Carmen

Do you consider yourself a high-achieving woman? ⠀

Do you consider yourself a high-achieving woman? ⠀

Do you consider yourself a high-achieving woman?

Ya, me too…. So, why am I asking this today? ⠀

Something that I rediscovered over and over is my go-to response in any stressful situation: be “busy,” accomplish more! Can you relate?⠀

Slowing down does not come very naturally to me, I have to push myself and be mindful and INTENTIONAL with where I place my time and focus. Instead of doing 1000 things that I am “good” at, I intentionally choose to focus on what is aligned with my highest self and choose my GREATNESS instead! ⠀

So what does that look like?⠀
⠀⠀
Figuring out which daily rituals and behaviors NOURISH me and keep me grounded. And, I am not just talking about food- I am talking about physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. ⠀
⠀⠀
I focus on managing my energy, instead of my time. You have the choice of how you spend your energy- so PROTECT it!⠀
⠀⠀
I am constantly checking in with myself to be super self-aware and take radical responsibility for MYSELF. Inquiry questions I ask often sound like this…⠀

Q: Do my actions match my aspirations?⠀
Q: I am showing up today as the woman I know that I desire to be?⠀
Q: What do I feel right now? ⠀
Q: What do I need? ⠀
Q: Where do I need to ask for help or support?⠀

I asked if you can relate above, but you know what… If you’re a part of my tribe I know that you can relate! So take some this week to slow down, and check-in with yourself- believe me, it feels SO GOOD!⠀

Lots of love and slowing down this week,

Carmen

Which affirmation resonated the most with you?

Which affirmation resonated the most with you?

Below are a few uplifting affirmations I have been telling myself this year. I hope that one resonates with you, and you can incorporate it into your life to be uplifted!

I amplify all that is good in my life and for the highest good for all.

Everything attached to me wins with ease.

In stillness, I receive.

Listen louder.

I amplify my voice to amplify the goodness in others.

Look within.

Today I choose to see with fresh eyes and amplify enthusiasm, joy, fun, and love!

As I wrote this note to you this week, I noticed a pattern….
Getting still and looking within vs. seeking outside of myself.
Amplifying the good in life and sharing that with others.

Which affirmation resonated the most with you? Hit reply and let me know!

How are you spending your time otherwise?

How are you spending your time otherwise?

The most profound things often come through my pen onto paper when I am fully present during my morning journaling sessions. I wrote this on December 24, 2021-

I receive this now.

Abundant blessings are going to be flowing in 2022 for all those that have faith, surrender to the flow, and have peace within to allow freedom in their lives- including me. This also means to letting go of indecision, who we think we are, relying on our own strength, caring about the opinions of others, and any and all judgment – so we can fully step into who we are truly meant to be. Shining so fucking bright that everyone around us cannot help but be illuminated. Taking so much inspired action that you never have time to question it, and you only feel so blessed and grateful!

Did you know that I told myself I wasn’t good at journaling or writing for years and that I didn’t have time to journal? Seriously though, think about that… if we do not have 10 minutes for ourselves each day, something is wrong!

How are you spending your time otherwise?

This is your homework this week, make a note of what you are filling your time with, AND if they are things that light you up and give you energy, or do they tear you down?

Lots of love to you this week,
Carmen
