Duties and Responsibilities

This was my invitation to release expectations today, from an app I have on my phone called 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘗𝘢𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘯.

It’s timely because I’ve been going through some personal shit, and fighting has been happening with my partner.

This morning was a little rough, and I was practicing observance of where I was, mentally and emotionally, then I opened the app and saw this.

This morning I dove into another process of asking and exploring, and I came to a deeper understanding of I only have duties and responsibilities to myself. Let me share …

I revisited when I was at my lowest and how I practiced finding moments in my days that made me smile. That risk that I took, to force myself to smile was hard. It was uncomfortable, and I fought it. I didn’t want the task of doing for myself. I did for myself and I got burned. Deep inside I didn’t want to smile. I wasn’t sure if I could handle it because I was so used to feeling terrible and worn at that point that the idea of anything differnt in my body seemed impossible and completely out of reach. It would hurt.

It takes the same energy to lift up as it does to put down.

Even though this message was my guidance for today, I invite you to explore along with me. When we pass on, transfer, project, or hand down our duties and responsibilities to others, we’re passing, projecting, etc. – we are in ways excusing and removing ourselves from doing the healing work that’s meant to be done by us, for personal growth and development. We’re getting something out of this transference behavior. We’re creating, and holding onto an 𝘰𝘶𝘵. Mind, Body, and Spirit.

Telling others how they need to be and what they should be doing (for us) distracts and pulls us away from what we need to actually be doing. We’re passing the responsibility buck, and not being accountable. And in this, we suffer and struggle.

It’s a toxic experience for the other person to go through, and it’s toxic to place such a burden on ourselves – constantly needing to juggle and navigate what everyone else is doing to you, leaving ourselves depleted and spent feeling. Exasperation comes to mind.

A few years ago, when I felt broken and bottomed out, I realized I needed to try something (else). I was stagnant. What I was doing – nothing – wasn’t working. All I was doing was making everything everyone else’s responsibility for what I felt and what was happening to me. Those mindsets and behaviors kept me stuck. Nothing was ever going to change, and I was going to be there forever. I knew I needed to push myself. I needed to feel something different. In the beginning, the push felt more like a shove, and I didn’t like it at all. I had to risk change. It was a leap I wanted to take. My pain had become too painful. I held my breath and I jumped.

I had to jump daily in the beginning. In time though, as my body began learning, and started feeling safe in enjoying the new sensations it was experiencing, my mood and my mindsets shifted. I kept going until I learned how it felt to hold myself.

Now I take comfort in creating for myself and I do my best to let go of all else. Because that doesn’t belong to me. It’s not my duty or responsibility to manage what’s not mine.

What do you take on that isn’t yours? Are you ready to give it back?, and place the duty of responsibilty back on them? And ask yourself: Am I capable of supporting them while they learn and explore? It’s the matter of give and receive. It’s relationship.

And what do you force on others, or expect of others, when in reality they’ll never be able to give it to you, or live up to your ideals? Because it’s yours, not theirs. Only you can fully provide for yourself.

Finally, where are you unsatisfied? Where do your disappointments and frustrations come from? These are the pain points from which you begin. Open your eyes, take a deep breath in, feel into where you want to be – and GO!

What can you do today, even if it’s one small act, like finding a smile, that brings you closer to what you really want instead, and ultimately points you in the direction toward your genuine authenticity, and helps you find clarity in reason so you can begin to accept your duties and responsibilities? And actually do it?

It takes practice. One small gesture or risk at a time. Movement is the single thing that creates shift. Try trying a new tool for self care, or create a new habit. In time you will be able to measure your actual progress and you will be closer to feeling and having what you really want. It will be uncomfortable at first, but in time your heart and your feelings will show you otherwise. And as you step into your new personal spaces, you will also be shedding pieces of those fears around abandonment, not being enough, and being alone; and you’ll be letting go of your anger, a little bit at a time.

Stepping into Truth – Find the group in Facebook, and MeetUp

Find the group on Facebook and MeetUp

Stepping Into Truth is where you will come to find, and be on purpose.

The work you do for your self brings you closer to a happier, more joy filled life. Through healing work and navigation, the dynamics of all of your relationships will create alignment, especially of your self-relationship; and are integral steps for your personal health and wellness.

Who you are now is a series of symptoms, conditions, patterns, cycles, and behaviors that have root causes in other lifetimes, timelines, and dimensions. The key to the management and prevention of illness and disease (emotional and physical) are found in soul lessons, belief systems, ancestral hand downs, past lives, trauma imprinting, and the work around triggers and hooks, to bring about new perspective and energy.

Ken and I created the group, found on Facebook and MeetUp. Our intention for the group is to be the place for genuine, safe conversations around Inuition, spirituality, healing, energy, working with your “claires”, and so on. I hope you find and join us.

The reality of stepping into new dynamics of Love and Happiness

Have you ever heard about a couple that married after only knowing each other a week or two? What’s your opinion on arranged marriages? I always thought they were crazy. How could someone know that fast? What’s the divorce rate on those demographics?

I didn’t feel free – that’s why I thought those relationship types were bonkers. I wasn’t in control, and in my own ways about my life I was figuring out how to be. I’ve lived a lot of situations and circumstances where that particular battle was tested over and over again. I remember my one consistent thought for myself was the longing to know what free felt like. Free to BE Me.

Some of you know my story of abuse and having a stalker. The phrase “I was hunted in the streets” was the one I used the most when telling my story, and I wrote that phrase in my chapter in the book Find Your Voice Save Your Life. Being hunted certainly doesn’t provide all the warm and fuzzies of mental freedom, and the emotional anguish with what you live in certainly doesn’t feel all that amazing either. No wonder I had opinions and judgements around relationships. Notice I’m saying had.

I knew if I were to find a partner I would need to be able to trust him. He wouldn’t be the type to want to try to take me away from who I am, or seperate me from my people. And he would need to be able to support me no matter what. I absolutely did not think finding that person was possible. I had such a low expectation of men that I resolved to be alone for the rest of my life. And I had such a lowered sense of self worth that I had decided that free was something I could possibly never know. I dropped all expectations for happiness from men, and dissolved all of my dreams for finding one.

After feeling more stable in my decision, and making true effort of committed joy for my life because I respect myself and love myself unconditionally, not only did I find my worth, I met my man. Through Divine channels that really don’t make any logical sense at all except to those who understand the ways of the universe and what the true meaning Trust holds – Ken and I somehow found each other.

After knowing each other roughly two weeks we lept into a journey that both took us across the country, and into each others arms forever. We traveled the initial physical distance in a small hybrid car, with just a few bags of clothes and toiletries – compacted in every sense of the word. We learned about each other in the most outstanding way!

When we left we had every intention of returning home to the east coast, but we came into Utah and we felt ready to stay still for a bit; falling in love on so many levels and in so many ways. We secured an apartment and started moving in our new direction. There was a lot of work to jump into immediately – finding work, building a new for us home, buying some basics, having things shipped from home. Again, we learned a lot about each other in a very short period of time. We each learned a lot about our true needs and wants on a whole new level. We did a great job.

As these hustles and bustles settled down some and we were gaining traction in our new realities and dynamics we both started to notice things – about each other, and our ways, and I guess you can say things stirred up. We started fighting. Some really heavy and complex shit came up. For both of us our emotions were in overload, and we began questioning what to do. It was only a few months of living together.

Ken and I have consciously committed to each other, and we will get through. We both want a partner who raises us up, who can be available and provide the support needed to grow and develop. And we already know that when we’re good, we’re good. We’ve got this. So why the fights?

Individually we reached out for help, allowing us to speak for ourselves and receive what we needed from our peers and mentors. We also enlisted the help of professionals who provided energy healing and counseling. We both had a lot of emotionally charged energies that were stored in us and needed to be released. We both had emotional and relationship cords that were ready to be cleared. Upgrades to our mindsets needed to occur, so the garbage had to be taken out. Some of the things we learned is that both of us had environments and relationship teachers growing up that haven’t served us. Our role models didn’t have their own freedoms in a sense, and were deeply wounded emotionally. They modeled to us what toxicity looks and feels like. Now, with Ken and I each facing our dream relationship, we had to learn what energies belonged to us, and which didn’t. We began a new quest, or process, really. This new practice will bring about the awareness we need in real time to guide us to our true goals, and not have us guessing if we’re going to get what we want or not. We want to ensure neither of us will feel rejected or need to get defensive.

What we’re doing is deciphering which of the energies are adopted and/or limiting beliefs that we have to process out. Then we only have to support and nurture the energies that are our true desires. We are consciously and positively questioning who’s mirroring who, and what, to answer the why. And we’re just getting started!

For both Ken and I our self love and respect, and our love for each other remains a priority. Our fights were both of us saying no to what we didn’t want. And that meant fighting each other on some pretty hefty beliefs and energies. We’re creating new dynamics and a process that’s just for us. We’re actually creating our deepest desires together, for each other, and in a way thats growing each of us in the most special way. We are paving our path for true happiness, with Love.

Your Relationships and Self Dynamics – What is being mirrored back to you? and Why?

January’s installation for Experience Tuesdays 2021

Every once in a while you meet someone, and you feel something special. Because they remind you of yourself – where you were once, and it helps you realize that you have in fact grown. You realize you have advice for this person, and you want to take them under your wing. You feel a strong connection, and your compassion is showing you where you can serve.

At times we connect with others because we’re in a similar situation, and you feel you could support each other through the process. And sometimes you’re drawn to someone because you feel a connection that you can’t explain. You notice you always feel better when you’re around them and talking to them. Chances are they’re on the other end of my first example – and they are placing you under their wing.

What is it exactly that’s happening? You are being shown your multi-dimensional, multi-faceted self. Their age, gender, social status, career, intelligence, or any other physical trait doesn’t need to apply. It’s the spiritual connection, your personal experience, that’s presenting itself. It’s good to observe where you’re at in all 3 of these scenarios. There comes a point when you might even notice you have each of these mirrors aimed at you.

Let’s take the classic parent / child example. At some point, we all realize that the child becomes the parent – to the parent, and the parent becomes the learner or the one in need. I read a long time ago about parents to want their children to have more than what they had. These types of parents are great providers.

There are parents who don’t yet have their shit together, and struggle to provide for and allow for better opportunities for their children. These children become self taught and go on to achieving more, or they stay on par with their parents and fail to break the cycle. Usually if there are siblings, they’re opposite (or differnt enough) of each other in terms of values and truths that the difference is palpable, and there’s conversation around it.

I see what I want, and what I’m capable of giving to my dogs. Because family life is different than my social and professional relationships. With my dogs I probably go overboard on what I provide, that’s because I always felt I didn’t have value in my family, I was the lowest ranked. I both felt it and it was shown to me via gesture and language by my family. When it comes to pets, my family can be a little slow to give the attention and nurturing they need and I can feel it. Instead my family overfeeds them with their idea of love in the form of food and treats, rewarding them with their own misplaced priorities.

There are mentors, coaches, and accountabilty partners that we find for ourselves. These are more intentionally matched and prove to meet our needs when we identify the direction we know we want to be headed. We are guided because they are able to succesfully reflect to us what we are asking for; and what it will take to get us there.

It’s fairly common to acknowledge that romantic relationships by far mirror to us who we want to be. There are roles, labels, and responsibilties that come with the investment. And as the dynamic plays out, the mirrors and facets become highlighted. Most of our growth comes from what intimacy and expectation reveals. Sometimes with our partners our beliefs (real or adopted) about who we think we’re supposed to be rule the relationship; and not always necessarily who we want or need to be, but who we have become, or need to become to be that person. We may even lose ourselves in the misalignment.

Social friendships can also be considered intimate – we tend to explore our desires and certain parts of ourselves through exploration, questioning, and ranking (comparison) with people we trust. We allow our vulnerability to surface because we’re searching for an outlet for support from an unbiased position.

Professional relationships can be tricky. There are many ways professional relationships teach us things. There’s a hierarchy and a sort of disconnect at play. And it’s up to us to determine if we need it to align with our wants, needs, and the hierarchies; or we can decide to table it until the next day or the next encounter. When it comes to professional relationships we have the choice to invest in observation and support, or not.

All of our relationships show us our courage and strength up close. Where do you speak up?, and where do you listen? Where do you put your effort and attention? Why?

This month I’m asking you to go a little deeper, and start figuring out “What’s being mirrored to me?” Healing around it happens when you address it. Otherwise, you’re just gonna keep on going at the pace and space you are, running the risk of not meeting your authentic self, or knowing true happiness.

As a high schooler I was told one of the best ways to learn something I was struggling with was to try to teach it to someone else. You have to be able to connect with the information. And it helps when that information hits home on a personal level. You’ll find that you come up with unique examples and stories to get the other person to get it. One of the biggest eye-openers for me when certifying to be a coach was the advice to write about every session I have with a client – to recall and reference what the session entailed, what the client accomplished or didn’t, to remark on shifts and progress, if anything was assigned to do before our next session, and any other observations and recommendations. The added advice was to then honestly write about what the client and the session taught me. What did I learn?, and/or what do I need to learn? in order to be able to continue to be the right professional and support person this client needs. To know when it’s time to make a referal.

As I started this practice I quickly learned that I was still very much a student. And It is this advice that I apply to myself, in all of lifes opportunities and teaching moments, with al lof my relationships. Especially my self relationship.

I hope you find this months videos and conversations helpful. Please join my Mind Body Spirit class on January 12th – which will bring this to you with a new perspective and reason to keep exploring and expanding. Then, I wrap up the month with a group healing, that will provide what you need for your growth. For more information, tune in, and ask. I am here for you.
