Fierce Love Episode 13 – To See Things From a Fresh Perspective

Fierce Love Episode 13 – To See Things From a Fresh Perspective

How to open your inner eyes to a fresh perspective

It’s natural to look at something from your own perspective, to think about how a particular event or circumstance affects you or impacts your life. But sometimes you can get out of an emotional or relationship roadblock by thinking of how it all looks from a different angle. Take 3 minutes to center yourself, and mentally open to the power of a fresh perspective, to understand how something might look and feel entirely different if you just take one mental step in a different direction…

Accessing the gift of a different view of things

Today I am in the middle of a very specific situation, but I am seeking a fresh perspective.

I breathe deeply, allow my feet to rest firmly on the ground and using my inner vision, I look around at my situation.

Calmly I note the different things I see.

Because strong emotions sometimes create clouds around the truth, I note each strong emotion I feel about this situation.

As I name each strong emotion, the cloud of that emotion flows gently to the side and the air becomes clearer.

As these emotions depart, I am able to see some of the facts more clearly. They stand around me like stones. I don’t have to name each one, only be aware that these stones are arranged in a particular pattern. Some are clustered together over here, others are farther apart over there.

Now I take one step.

The arrangement of stones looks slightly different now; not because they have moved, but because I have.

This, then, is the secret gift of moving away from my own position.

Each time I exert the energy to shift, to move, or to grow, the facts of my situation look different.

Today I am grateful for the gift of movement, and for the gift of a new perspective.

Have you ever struggled with feeling “not good enough”?

When you’re cut off from a steady flow of self-love, you begin to forget what a beautiful life looks and feels like. DON’T let your dreams for life slip away…

Fierce Love Episode 12 – For When You Need Healing (The Rainbow Circle of Breath)

Fierce Love Episode 12 – For When You Need Healing (The Rainbow Circle of Breath)

Are you in a place where you need healing?

When there is an illness in your body, our default can sometimes be to complain, whine, or simply submit to misery. But what if instead you were to take extra time to emotionally nourish yourself with the right kinds of attention? What if you were able to simply name the pain and dis-ease, and send the most powerful healing agent of the universe — pure love — toward your own body and spirit? Take 3 minutes right now to channel the power of radiant, encompassing love through your thoughts and your body…

Call on the greatest power of the universe for your healing…

Today I acknowledge that I am sick, but I also claim this moment for another, stronger power to flow through me.

As I begin to find my holy center, I breathe in slowly and fully through my nose, and exhale through my mouth. This builds a bright circle of life-giving air, a cycle of oxygen and health.

Even though my eyes are closed, I begin to sense a shimmering of tiny flowing lights around me, the sparkling of a thousand colors of healing light.

The circle of my breath glows as I breathe in, and my body and spirit know how to pull that rainbow of light into my circulatory system, my respiratory system, my digestive processes, and the electrical and chemical systems that help me live.

Each time I breathe in, the air is rich in healing gifts of luminous color. I am breathing a rainbow of love and healing.

As I release each breath, I return myself to openness for the next inflow of glimmering healing gifts.

I am safe and protected as I breathe and shine and hum.

Have you ever struggled with feeling “not good enough”?

When you’re cut off from a steady flow of self-love, you begin to forget what a beautiful life looks and feels like. DON’T let your dreams for life slip away…

Fierce Love Episode 11 – Affirmation for a Healthy Sexuality

Fierce Love Episode 11 – Affirmation for a Healthy Sexuality

Are you taking time to encourage a nourishing, healthy sexuality within yourself?

Radiantly healthy sexuality doesn’t just happen; it’s built up carefully and intentionally over time. Your sexuality is intricately tied to all of the other areas of your life, and is deeply rooted in your own self-esteem. No matter how hard it has been up to this point, I invite you to take 3 minutes right now to center your thoughts and claim the beautifully healthy sexuality that is your birthright, and can be claimed, and reclaimed.


Affirm your deep value and healthy sexuality…

I am a beautiful, radiant woman. I am wonderfully, miraculously made and the positive energy of the universe flows through me. I have so much love to offer the world.

I am deeply grateful for my sexuality. It’s not like anyone else’s in the world. It is uniquely mine, as special and beautiful as I am.

I resist comparing my sexuality with the needs and pleasures of others. I am confident and grateful for the way I am.

When I encounter a blockage within the positive flow of my sexual energy, I gently and willingly work to clear it.

I work to build trust with my partner so that he is aware of my needs and desires just as I learn his needs.

No matter how many mistakes I’ve made with regard to the love and care of my sexuality, today I choose maintain healthy sexual boundaries, and I don’t invest the whole of my heart or body outside those boundaries.

My healthy sexuality is a shining, radiant thing within me; I hold it in sacred trust, and honor it with loving care.

Fierce Love Episode 10 – Walking Into The Unknown (The Colored Bowls Meditation)

Fierce Love Episode 10 – Walking Into The Unknown (The Colored Bowls Meditation)

Are you walking into the unknown today?

There are times in everyone’s life when we simply don’t know what we’re about to be facing. A frightening diagnosis, a new job, and fresh and painful breakup: our lives are filled with moments of uncertainty about the future. I invite you to take 3 minutes to claim the natural courage within yourself, and stand firm in your willingness to face whatever comes next.

Affirm your courage as you accept an uneasy or unknown path…

Today I look ahead to the path that lies before me.

I may not feel brave, but I know that bravery is about choosing to act in spite of my fear.

My fear is allowed to come on this journey, and there is a place for it within me, but it will not be the driver or the chooser. I will listen to my fear’s voice, just as I listen to the other emotions in my heart of hearts.

Each of my feelings has a brightly colored bowl to rest in. I take a moment to sit without judgement before each one.

Red for my frustration and anger.

Blue for my sadness and grief.

Purple for my fear and frustration.

Orange for my anxiety and nervousness.

Yellow for my joy and serenity.

Green for my hope and trust.

All these things have a place inside me, and I have a place in the universe, which yearns and works for my good.

Even though I feel unsteady, I will be walking into the unknown.

Everything I know, everything I feel, everything I am goes with me.

And I am not alone.

Fierce Love Episode 9 – When You Need to Commit to a Choice

Fierce Love Episode 9 – When You Need to Commit to a Choice

Do you need to commit to a choice today?

Sometimes when you face an important choice, you spend so much of your time second-guessing yourself that you become paralyzed with indecision or worry. I invite you to take 3 minutes to trust in the wisdom you’ve already gathered around this choice, and commit yourself to the future that will come. Find peace as you commit to a choice…

Find peace as you commit to a choice…

I’m doing the best I can in this situation.

Some things in life simply aren’t simple. In fact, they are much more often complex, and nuanced, and even tangled.

I know what I don’t know.

Wisdom will grow in me as I humbly accept that I don’t know all the right decisions to make all the time.

Wisdom comes with experience.

I have gathered what information I can about this choice, and now I allow that choice to sit within me, gently shining.

It may be a hard choice, but just for this moment I accept that it’s a hard choice, and I allow the clamoring voices of all the other choices to fade.

This will be my choice.

I commit to this choice because even if it’s painful, it embodies the most hope, the most good, the most truth.

I release my fear of the known, and the unknown, and rest in this place of peace.

No matter what happens after I release this choice into the world, I will eventually make my way forward.

Fierce Love Episode 8 – Trust Your Feelings

Fierce Love Episode 8 – Trust Your Feelings

Do you trust your feelings today?

Some days you go into the world more cautiously than others. Perhaps you’re not sure why you are being so hesitant or guarded… Or whether you should trust your feelings at all. I invite you to take 3 minutes to listen to your feelings, to validate yourself, and to sit peacefully in a balanced place between your head and your heart.

3 minutes to listen to, understand, and trust your feelings…

Today I will listen to my inner GPS. I will give my feelings an open, safe place within me to tell me more clearly what’s going on in the tender places of my soul.

Is something amiss?

What fears are circling my inner light?

Is someone being judgmental, or shaming, or disapproving of me?

Is someone ignoring, rejecting, or too busy for me?

I concentrate on feeling grounded, calm, and quietly luminous, because I am in control of the things I feel, and by my own self-care I create a safe arena for the truth to be shared.

I attend to my own needs to be respected, loved, valued, and treated well.

These needs are in no way inappropriate, and I will see that they are met
by caring for myself by keeping my connections with people who treat me well, and by allowing unhealthy bonds to fade and eventually dissolve.

Today I trust my feelings.

I hear what they have to say, for my feelings can be wise.

I am relaxed. I am centered. I am focused.

No matter what I feel, both my heart and my head are working together today to choose the best path for me.

Fierce Love Episode 7 – Befriending Your Fear

Fierce Love Episode 7 – Befriending Your Fear

Is fear holding you back?

If fear is interfering with your ability to be fully present in your own life, or making you behave in ways that don’t match your values, or keeping you from being connected with those who are important to you, I invite you to take three minutes to look honestly and compassionately at your fear, and see what it has to teach you.

An Affirmation for Changing Your Relationship With Fear

I have the power to change my relationship with fear.

There’s nothing wrong with being afraid. But rather than being frozen or misdirected by fear, today I choose to turn my full attention to it for just a few minutes. I can do this because I am in charge of myself. This time is for my benefit.

First I note the sensations I’m feeling.

What is the temperature or texture of my fear?

What people or experiences are connected to it?

I calmly nod to each character or story that plays a part in my fear.

I listen carefully for a moment. Is there a message my fear wants to share? I allow time for that message to become clear.

I breathe in for 3 counts, pulling in confidence and resolution.

I breathe out for 5 counts, releasing anxiety and paralysis.

I finish my listening time by turning my thoughts to the things I am grateful for…

Fierce Love Episode 6 – Managing Your Emotional Triggers

Fierce Love Episode 6 – Managing Your Emotional Triggers

Are you in control of your emotional triggers?

Emotional triggering is a survival response. If you’ve been struck by lightning before, it makes sense that you would be on high alert during a thunderstorm.

You can’t control a thunderstorm, but you also don’t have to allow it to keep you cowering in fear. I invite you to take 3 minutes to find your center, and make a start at getting in control of any strong negative emotion you’re feeling right now. 

A Meditation for Managing Your Emotional Triggers

I breathe deeply and gently turn my attention to the strong negative emotion I’ve been feeling. I can take a moment to name the feeling.

Is it fear? Anger? Guilt? Sadness?

This strong feeling is inside and around me, but it isn’t me.

I calmly gather the storm of emotion I feel. I scoop it together with my hands, and set it aside to consider later.

I let a clean, cool wind blow any remaining distress away. Now my emotional horizon is sparkling and clear.

Later I will take some time to find out why these emotions are rising up, and I will be compassionate toward myself, and work toward my healing.

My emotions are strong, but they are not who I am. And they are not in charge of me.

I know I deserve love and respect. I deserve to be understood and treated fairly. I deserve a life of beauty and joy.

I am not in control of what others do or say, but I am in control of my reaction.I will be compassionate toward myself, and work toward my healing.

Fierce Love Episode 5 – Slow Down and Pace Yourself

Fierce Love Episode 5 – Slow Down and Pace Yourself

Would you like to slow down and recover your breath?

It isn’t always easy to slow down. Sometimes it feels like the world demands that you rush. But the pace our culture (or our friends and family) demand from you are not always the best thing for you. Sometimes you just need to slow down and re-center.

I invite you to take the next 3 minutes with me to get grounded again, and find the pace that nourishes and sustains your soul.

An Affirmation to Help Slow Down The Pace of Your Life

By making a conscious decision to slow down in this moment, maybe for this day, I am gently bringing myself into the present moment, grounding myself in what is happening right now.

And that’s enough. The future will unfold, and I don’t have to be the power or engine behind that unfolding. My call is simply to be here, now. Not in the past, not in the future, but in the now.

I am a holy net that allows the waves to pass through me, without carrying me away or tearing the fabric of my being.

As I breathe through each wave, I slow my thinking. I slow my worries. I slow my movements. I float securely in the warm tide of the universe, and the stars above me are beautiful.

I feel my energy gently building up again within me.

This is the glowing, healthy energy that is my birthright. It will power me at the speed that is right for me. Today I will breathe at my own pace, speak and work at my own pace, love at my own pace.

This is good, and nourishing, and enough.

Fierce Love Episode 4 – When You Feel Overwhelmed

Fierce Love Episode 4 – When You Feel Overwhelmed

Do you feel overwhelmed in your life or day?

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed. And you are well worth the 3 minutes it takes to stop, ground yourself, breathe deeply, and remind yourself of the power and holiness of your journey, even in the midst of overload…

An Affirmation for Letting Go and Letting Be

Today I let go of all pictures in my mind of past failures and losses. I’m not throwing them away, simply bundling them gently together and tucking them away inside a quiet spot in my inner heart.

I release the tension, judgements, pain, anger, or feelings of unworthiness in my body and mind, letting it drift away like so much cool mist.

I let go of the need to be perfect.

I let go of my need to be certain of the future.

I am created with both light and dark and every color of inner beauty, and I am well and wonderfully made. I have gifts and imperfections and amazing songs inside me the world has never heard.

I have the strength to face the challenges before me.

I am worthy of love and respect.

I claim this inner place of peace and strength. This is a holy place on my journey. Here I will stand. Here I will rest. Here I will thrive.
