Let’s break down spirituality, in a very basic way that goes beyond all the “new age” and what so many now refer to as “woo woo” talk.As I recognize that people, especially more religious one tend to shy away or get scared by the word ‘spiritual’ because of the new age ‘woo woo’ association.So can we forget about moon rituals, crystals, tarot cards, aliens, past lives for a minute and let’s really get to the core of what the fuck spirituality is?
I learned that if I wanted things in my life to change, then, I needed to feel different about myself and my situation. That meant, I would need to generate new emotions that didn’t include self pity; if I expected things in my life to start changing.
I learned that self pity not only impedes the progress you can make in life, but it creates self-destructive cycles of self-sabotage. When you’re too busy mulling over your problems constantly, feeling depressed, feeling like a victim- you are self indulging in pity. Which won’t allow you to see beyond where you are, now….
When was that last time you’ve told yourself all the things you love about yourself? How long has it been since you’ve had a heart to heart with you, with us?
I miss connecting with you, we gain so much insight into ourselves and your experiences when we speak with each other. I want to go down memory lane for a bit…
Do you recall, those days when babysitters refuse to sit you saying you were too “difficult”? All those times your mother got called to school because you were being what. Oh yea that is right “difficult”. All those unpleasant fights with your parents, family and teachers. They didn’t like the fact that you always had an opinion practically from the moment you learned to speak.

It was in this tender moment I heard a voice whisper you have to change everything when you leave and I broke down like a toddler and weeped. My entire life consisted of getting drunk, working at the Las Vegas strip club, doing drugs, designer items, and living up to the beauty standard. I had no idea how in the world I would be strong enough to change everything.
Trust is the most important ingredient in any relationship, yet it something that can be lost. Sometimes the people we love will hurt and disappoint us, they will do things that will make us question our trust in them and sometimes those things can break our trust completely. But like everything in life, I feel it’s all about perspective and where you are at in that moment of your life and development.
Do you ever notice that you get attached, needy and feelings of insecurities begin to creep in and you wonder where is the powerful, independent, badass I used to be? I can relate, I’ve been there, and a lot of the women I coach struggle with this energy of neediness and co dependency.
