When manifesting, people become more aware of their thoughts, of the words they speak and the way they think about themselves, and so they become very, very paranoid about what many address as ‘ negative thoughts’.
Of course your words have power, of course your thoughts have power and of course the way you think about yourself is powerful.
You are a powerful, divine being!
You are a million to one in a lifetime chance of being yourself, being in this time and space and being blessed with the talents, world view and ability to share joy to others. You are a unique being.
And with great power, comes great responsibilities.
So yes, you do need to be aware of your thoughts, words and actions because they are all working in conjunction to send signals to the Divine Spirit that’s only job is to give you what you demand.
Think of the Universe/ Holy Spirit as a benevolent God that is totally whipped for you. They want to give you every single thing you want, but here’s the catch.
They have to wait for you to tell them what you want ( free will and all that) and they have no real understanding of good / bad, their language is one of energy and the frequency of which that energy vibrates when it reaches them.
So if you’re feeding your fear based state, you’ll get more problems, more reasons to stress to F out and more of all the things you say you don’t want.
Because that’s all you’re thinking about, all you’re talking about, all you believe and expect will follow you in your life.
So you look for evidence that you are NOT going to make it, and you obsess over it. When asked what you don’t want, you know those answers better than the back of your own hand. And let’s be honest, we’ve all been in this state for years. All learnt to maneuver around life based on the things we fear ( that’s how we survived).
And that’s also the reason when we do get the things we want, they happen in such a way that it further feeds our fear addiction, our stress and they do not stay good for the length of time they should.
So to move from a fear based state to one of love, so that you actually start getting what you desire , want and are being called to have, you have to do the same thing you’ve been doing with fear, but with love.
So you focus on the things you want, love the feeling of them, you understand that they will come ( same as with fear, when they do), you find evidence that your life is awesome and moving in a direction of awesome and you allow yourself to connect to you more.
To truly move, you need to address those same ‘negative emotions’, and to do that, you have to tune into them.
They are not here to hurt you, but to feed what you allow them to. They are here to test, to challenge and based on your reaction, your ego ( a vital part of your subconscious personality and the vessel through with the Universe/ Holy Spirit protects you) will continue to feed your thoughts to help you stay safe. This will manifest as either more fear or a feeling of confident intuition.
So no it’s not at all wrong to tune into your ‘negative’ thoughts or emotions. In fact what you should do is allow them to come into your mind, analyze them and listen to what they are actually telling you.
To help you with that, I’m gonna give you an exclusive exercise taken from the Level Up Journal Prompter, where you face your feelings and understand what they are actually telling you.
Tune into you right now and just be. No distractions, no interruptions, just be one with your thoughts and breathe as you are guided to, slowly and deeply.
What is an emotion or thought you are resistant to feeling or thinking.
Identify it. Look at it. Is it ultimately true?
What is present underneath that emotion?
Look at that. Is it true?
Feel your way through your various emotions, noticing the stories you’ve been telling yourself.
Observing what you’ve been telling yourself about your life or goals that do not feel good.
Become aware that these are all concepts and ideas that can be shifted.
What idea, concept, or story would feel better than the one you have been telling to yourself?
Take a break for 10 minutes a day at least and focus on the good feelings and thoughts that are now allowed to surround your happy goals.
Journal on your findings.

LEVEL UP YOUR LIFE BY LETTING YOUR REAL FEARS, DESIRES AND STRATEGIES POUR OUT OF YOU WITH THIS UNIQUE AND EFFECTIVE GUIDE
June 17th was a big day for the Boston NAPS, as the reputable market leader in women’s prenatal and postpartum care, announced the launch of the much anticipated Nurture by NAPS, their new membership program for new and expecting mothers.
Nurture by NAPS, is a subscription membership program which offers accessibility, comfort and community to new mothers.
The new virtual education program is evidence-based, with an instructional curriculum from women going through pregnancy all the way through the early stages of motherhood.
While I personally have no children of my very own, I am the very proud Aunt to a boy and girl fraternal twin and plaything to a precocious six year old girl, in short I know how stressful and sometimes isolated new mothers can feel as some of my friends have confided their fears, worries and lack of knowledge to me.
This is why when I was contacted with the release that the Boston NAPS was going digital, especially in this time of Covid-19- which has not made being pregnant any easier at all, I knew I had to share this to my platform.
As noted by the press release, the Nurture by NAPS educational platform, seeks to ‘ provide women with scalable, on demand pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting-related courses, procured and instructed by their team of highly-qualified medical professionals’; which is basically means, it’s there to take the guess-work out of your new life adventure- being a new mother.
“We are thrilled to bring our vision to life with the launch of Nurture by NAPS, reflecting our unwavering commitment to provide a healthy combination of medical and real-life mom advice, paired with a non-judgmental, access-from-anywhere community,” remarked Jamie O’Day & Emily Silver, Co-Founders of Boston NAPS.
If you are unaware of the Boston NAPS, let me give you some back-story about Co-Founders Jamie O’Day (BSN, RN, IBCLC) and Emily Silver (MSN, NP-C, IBCLC).
These two lovely ladies who are mothers to 5 children combined with over 10 years experience as former Labor and Delivery nurses, founded Boston NAPS in 2011 as a side hustle during their time working together as Registered Nurses in labor and delivery unit of a local hospital where follow up postpartum care was a numerous request by many of their patients.
From there, this experienced and qualified duo worked diligently to help women feel more informed, confident and supported as they navigated pregnancy and of course parenthood.
So did we expect anything less from those who truly understand what others are going through as new mothers and as nurses combined when the pandemic hit the world and globally made it one of the scariest times to be a new mother?
Of course not.
It makes sense to me that the company would not only realize that with social distancing mandates unfolding that they would need to help more mothers on an even larger scale and in response, Nurture by NAPS was created and launched in June of this year.
It is a very timely launch as according to the March of Dimes, more than 5 million women in the U.S live in ‘maternity care desert’, lacking access to professional obstetric and postpartum care, which means that Nurture by NAPS will be bridging the healthcare accessibility gap for these women who have been underserved in these communities.
“By creating a scalable, on demand curriculum that directly serves expecting and new moms with evidence-based educational content, we’re ultimately transforming the definition of community with digital access, while empowering women to feel confident in their decision-making, and addressing the trials of physical isolation via essential pregnancy, postpartum care and mental health resources,” says Jamie O’Day & Emily Silver, Co-Founders of Boston NAPS.
The Nurture by NAPS platform includes: Video content produced by medical professionals; Live webinars chalk-filled with valuable content; Weekly live Q&A sessions addressing trending topics; “Ask a Nurse” feature that offers parents an opportunity to tap into the expertise of nurses within 24 hours, and more. The programs are categorized chronologically: Pregnancy, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, and 9-12 months. Programming starts at $175. (Taken directly from press release)
Reconnection to self is when you allow yourself to admit and accept your truths, your vision and your power. It’s legit the process of befriending yourself on the mindset level, so you know who you are, why you’re doing what you’re doing and finally step into your co-creator shoes confidently.
You can sense when you need to reconnect with yourself.
It’s an uncomfortable feeling: foggy brains, restless mind, unavailable for most things that would have brought you some semblance of real heart centered joy, not knowing what would make you feel happy.
It’s shoulder muscles so tense, they constantly touch your ears, it’s feeling your face scowl and frown, it’s headaches, tense jawlines and gritting of teeth.
It’s living in a state of ‘ life won’t be better’ that robs you of your joy.
Here’s the thing:
You know who you are. You know that you want to move far away from this state. You know you want to smile more; you want to laugh, to feel light in your body and safe in the unshakeable knowledge that everything will all turn out for the best in the end.
You want to feel pleasure and way, way less pain.
When you reconnect to yourself, you’ll start to see the world differently; it’s a slow progress that is nothing to shout about with how seamless and easy it will be.
You’ll only notice that you are unavailable to negative thoughts, toxic energy and have no interest in engaging with anything seeking to bring down your vibes.
For me, reconnection was the process of realizing I was living not for the glory of having this life, but in the state of all things that were never-ending going wrong and using that as reasons to cut myself off from my sources of light.
I was not social, I always felt like I needed to be working ( even as I was frustratingly overwhelmed and stressed out by the business not making as it should), I used my lack of finances and the shame around it to stop myself from enjoying most things. The thought was I’ll enjoy all those things once I reached my goal.
I had lost sight of who I was as Ashlee Cox. I only saw many failures and gave into protecting myself from them at all costs.
Reconnecting with myself, challenged me to move away from that kind of famine, defeating mindset and allowed me to create a new self-fulfilling prophecy.
One that involved a happier, healthier and well rounded Ashlee.
An Ashlee that had allowed herself to grow, to pivot on prioritizing problems that only brought more of the same, to using that same energy to concentrate on her actual goals.
An Ashlee that recognized she didn’t have problems, just signs that she needed a new path to her goal and allowed herself to take them.
An Ashlee that leveled the F up!
And I did it with the help of the Level Up Journal Prompter.
This book with its nine chapters will take you on a journey of self discovery like no other resource can in this day.
Chapters: Reconnection, Limiting Beliefs and Triggers, Stories and Paradigms, Self love, Trust and Belief, Life skills, Goals and Validation, Energy and Manifesting, Support and Boundaries, You, Intuition and the Struggle, Next Level Self .
I researched and wrote these chapters, complete with journal prompts, and strategic homework when I had finally started to allow myself to be more, to receive more and I still use them to this day, when I want to level up again.
There is an energy of accelerated growth within these chapters and a feeling of intentional ease and crystal clear clarity.
You’re ready to grow, ready to move from a state where you attract problems, to one where you easily attract success.
Beauty tips, cute clothes, hours logged in the gym and a strict diet regimen-, these are the things that we turn to when we want to feel happy again; when we want to recapture the spark of our youth, and make our bodies feel GREAT again!
And all of those things work, they help us to be healthier, to feel more confident and to even look at the world with a wider, more rose tinted and relaxed lens, however, these things are not enough.
They are perfect and essential for a balanced life don’t get me wrong, but these things are only half of the coin when it comes to being truly healthy and living that youthful life.
So what is the other half?
It’s the intangible side of you; it’s the part of you that controls your desires, your emotions and even whether you even do any of the above activities!
It’s the side of you that allows you to perceive the world around you and lives right in your heart. Mental and mindset health don’t always get the credit and due diligence they deserve and over time we have tried to make them sound much better, talking about self care, self love, passions and goals.
No matter what you call it, this intangible side of you is the difference between you reaching your goals and living the kind of life you desire or you feeling muggy, stuck and n stasis, crumpled by stress.
This side of you, the side that should be ruled by your intuition also needs exercise, it needs to be nourished and it needs to be maintained so that you feel not only young again but energetic and unconditionally happy.
It is what will allow you to face your fears, conquer your challenges and stand back up with a huge grin on our face when you are knocked down.
LEVEL UP YOUR LIFE BY LETTING YOUR REAL FEARS, DESIRES AND STRATEGIES POUR OUT OF YOU WITH THIS UNIQUE AND EFFECTIVE GUIDE
This book will take you on an insightful journey through your own life and help you to paint the picture of who you intend to grow into next.
It tackles some of the most common pain points as well as pleasure centres of that side of you and allows you space to vent out not only your frustrations, but also the things you really, really, really want!
“Journaling has always been a great way for me to bring the things in my subconscious out into the open where I could look at them and really see them, really acknowledge these wants, desires and also the hurdles.”
“This particular book is filled with prompts, insights and actionable tasks that I myself took when I was going through a mindset transition and I felt awful, but knew there had to be more to this and as I face the pain points, I created the journal as well.”
This is a labour of love she is quick to point out and as such she admits that she was skeptical of compiling the questions and thought s she had gone through into a product and release it into the world, but over time, when more of her readers responded to her messages on trying to get their life on track, and expressing their want to feel younger, happier and like they were growing into an enhanced version of themselves, she put the prompter for sale.
“ It is really for anyone who is trying to figure their life out and want to get back to heart and center. It’s for the person who wants to truly feel young again and be really healthy, because they are taking care of both sides of themselves and allowing themselves to truly grow!” said Ashlee.
Some of the topics covered within the prompter include, reconnecting to the self, repurposing limiting beliefs and conquering mental blocks, understanding the importance of energy and what you are expending yours on, as well as breaking down manifesting abundance and understanding how energy ties it all together.

Ashlee’s goal for Ashlee Unscripted is to be a platform to inspire and inform readers with energy and insights into overcoming and resolving some of life’s more formidable roadblocks and challenges.
And it is with that in mind that I am super excited to announce that we have created our first official blog-zine, aimed at providing some of the insights and guidance to move past real blocks in real time!
After months of behind the scenes planning and curating the right articles for this particular project, The Unscripted Collective Vol 1 is finally available!
This product serves up a massive dose of mindset expansion and encourages you to keep motivated while being present in life’s little moments of bliss and learning.
As many of you may know, Inner work has long been an important and vital part of Ashlee’s belief in creating the life you truly desire with ease and understanding, so the creation of this book was a perfect match for her teachings as well as her love for designing her own products.
“I wanted to create something that was easy to read, was even fun, but also carried some amazing insights and real life experiences! I genuinely love this blog-zine and it’s also digital so you can read it anywhere, anytime.”
“I’ve since created more niches specific products but the Unscripted Collective Volume 1 is my first love and I’m super proud of it!”
Ashlee makes it a point to re-read her own words and to also read the words of other coaches and bloggers that resonate with her. She explained that the idea for the blog-zine came to her when she was looking over her blog and thought it would be pretty cool to have these articles in a space that was all her readers’ choice and they could travel with easily.
“Ilove sharing my experiences with those, who are going through right now what I also went through and that is what drives me to create my books, to do the videos on IG and to keep this blog going. It is not easy to share your own deep stories at times or to open up and show others that yeah I went through crazy and I’m still standing, but that is exactly the kind of message they need to hear and know to be true,” she explained.
Ashlee, as you can imagine has been very hands-on with this product, from the articles used to the way the finished product was designed, making sure that it reflected a fun, engaging and edgy feel for her loyal readers. With a strong belief that beauty and self love starts from the inside, before it can radiate out, Ashlee wanted to ensure that the product was also a worthy buy for those who wanted to read it.
TheUnscripted Collective Vol 1 is the perfect book for those who love to read, but also love the magazine feel of blogs and the fun way information is expressed.

Diving into why being just who you are can be a hard feat in Today’s society and why it’s so important to reconnect to your soul.
Why it is not safe as some of the experts are pushing today to ‘ force’ yourself to do anything, rather you have to trust your intuition and we break down how to do just that.
How to stop manipulating yourself into settling, because it only leads to long term pain and hard lessons.
How to become truly inspired without losing yourself and so much more.
The blogzine has over 15 articles, beautifully curated so that they flow into each other in a fun way and takes you on a journey of casual yet super insightful self discovery!
It’s not that you hate your life; it’s that you know that it can be even better!
You know your life can be so much more and, you feel it in your gut, you feel it every time you think of what you’d rather be doing in this very instance if things would only FINALLY go your way.
You know it’s possible to live this free, adventurous and relaxed lifestyle, because whenever you go on your social media, there are hundreds of stories about those who left their job and are now vacationing in Bali, can work whenever and wherever they want to, are constantly partying but most of all, what really attracts you to the accounts are the looks of total bliss and freedom they are expressing.
And those images, stories and experiences are what draw you like a magnet to their accounts.
You gobble up their stories of living a fully free life, of making money in their sleep, of pursuing their dreams effortlessly and flawlessly and you compare that to your own seemingly boring and staid existence while longing settles deep inside.
Why can’t that be you?
Why can’t you be the one sharing the stories of living this fabulous life, of going to the parties, of rubbing shoulders with amazing people, of buying whatever you want, going wherever you want when you want?
Why are you only sitting on the sidelines, pining over someone else’s lifestyle , deciding as you want more that your own life will never even be close to theirs?
So you get envious, frustrated, angry, jealous, exhausted and stressed out because you no longer feel as if your life measures up or will ever get even truly close to all the things you now believe you need to have in it.
You focus on all the things that are glaringly missing. The people in your life, start to point out the long laundry list of things that you have yet to accomplish and compare you with those close to your age or younger who seem to be living that socially-accepted close to perfect life and because you’re hyper aware of this, and it STINGS- it drives you even further into the scarcity mindset.
Where even as you want more, desire more and work towards it, the one thing that drags you just from the finishing line- that you aren’t even aware is so close to you-, is the fact that you already know that you’re never gonna get there.
And the real reason that you’re never going to get there is because you’ve not been honest about what you really want in life.
You haven’t been honest about what lifestyle you truly would enjoy.
You have not been honest about the fact that you lost sight of your intuitive end goals a long time ago because you buried them deep in your psyche.
You haven’t been honest about the fact that you do NOT believe in the possibility of your life changing for the drastically better without some sort of cosmic sacrifice, (which means really that you have already doomed yourself to failure, even as you pretend to bury that thought).
All of that doesn’t deter you however, from wanting to prove those who doubt you wrong.
If anything, it drives you to all out war, and you hustle, grind, do all the things, but never just enough to actually win consistently, because deep down you know you’re not going to.
You just need a win. You just need something to show that you are working towards success, but whose version of success are you actually working towards?
For a long time, I thought success was checking off my grocery list of things to have, things I had to prove and living a life that was more professionally based than actually feeding my soul.
I spent hours researching how to make money from home, because I felt as if my job was making me crazy and I was convinced that I could make large sums of money quickly so that I could just enjoy myself without having to worry about money.
I wanted all the nice things- vacationing, expensive dinners because I love food, time to go to the gym, time to relax and unwind, etc.
And I was going to do ALL I needed to do because I wanted this and I SAW others living this, so I could too. Envious?
Of course not, I just wanted to live a wholly different life, just like those other people who were boldly boasting were as well!
At least that was what I told myself.
In reality, what I was doing was counterproductive to any of the things I wanted.
I stayed at home, researching how to build my business and tried a hundred marketing strategies, that promised to work with no large investment, even as I knew were not intuitively correct for me because I was now fully on into my DESPERATION mode and not the ‘I love what I’m doing’ mode.
I strained my eyes because I was forever staring intently into the computer screen, trying to figure out what I was obviously doing wrong, because the Experts all said they did this one thing and maybe I’m just not good at this… and instead of actually taking time to heal, I brainwashed myself into thinking a little strain was nothing and tried to make myself work even harder all to no better or further results.
I did not really work out, because I had no time to spare and if I did manage to squeeze in a few minutes, it was to work out the mounting frustration, I felt at STILL not living that glamourous life! Which meant that I didn’t allow myself to enjoy the fact that I was getting stronger and more flexible ; instead I became fixated on the fact that the scale was not decreasing as quickly as it damn well should be.
I did not really sleep or actually wake up feeling refreshed because my mind was turbulent and I could not shut off my thoughts or the web of increasing fears that wrapped tighter and tighter each day that I failed at my goals.
And in all of this, I spent rare time with my friends, ( citing mountains of work, no money and no free time) , got irritable with my family when they needed my help with anything (because seriously, can’t they see I’m trying to get stuff done? Why can’t they even try to appreciate what I’m trying to build here?)
I got progressively deeper and deeper into the mindset that I was a stupid failure who was never going to be one of those people who got to just lived life as they freakin well wanted and should just shrivel up and stop, because obviously I was never going to hack this thing.
Hindsight is 20/20 and now I can tell you that all of that stress and self castigation was not at all in line with what I was telling others or even myself about what I wanted in life.
So what was the root of this discrepancy in what I wanted in life and what I was doing?
My idea of being successfully happy was what was screwing with me and I suspect you as well.
Chatting with a friend of mine recently about life and why we got so frustrated about not having the things we wanted, we came to realisation that our mindset and the things we claimed to want were not our true goals.
It was a shock to realise that even as we were trying to change our lives, we were still essentially people pleasing!
Yes, we wanted to break away from the status quo of white picket fence, and an ok job, where we worked up to 5 weeks of VACATION. Where the amount of money you had declared your life a success or failure and wanted to chart our own path, but in the bak of our minds, the things that were driving us were not our true wants.
We were still protecting them by hiding them from ourselves and getting frustrated when we were unable to achieve them.
What did that mean for us then?
It meant that I had not actually decided for myselfwhat success ACTUALLY looked like, what it would feel like and mean to me; rather, I was looking at OTHER people’s ideals of success and how they were creating that for themselves.
Isn’t that crazy?!
My borrowed idea of happy success and accompanying envy was what was holding me back from living a life that was truly free and happy. I was grinding and hustling because I was told I needed to and I believed that that was true, even as I was focusing on the things that didn’t mean as much to me.
So if I truly wanted to be living the lifestyle that I knew deep down I wanted, then I had to be honest with myself and most importantly, reconnect to my true goals and desires.
So yes, others were building families, getting promotions, working their dream jobs, vacationing in exotic places around the world and making money in their sleep.
And if I’m honest with myself, while I was impressed by those things, they were not necessarily what I wanted for myself and not intuitively right for me in the way others were getting those results.
That revelation lead me to do more mindset work, to dive deeply into myself and pull out my truth from the depth of the vault I had hidden them within.
When I really did the mindset work and put in real effort to envision the kind of life I was truly craving, I found that what was truly important to me were not necessarily tangible, rather there were about moments.
Do I want to make the money? Yes.
Do I want to live the carefree life and own all the creature comforts that I see? Hellz Yes.
Are those the most important things in my life? No
And that shocked the crap outta me, because if they weren’t that important, then should I be focusing on them with the intensity that I had been?
What I did learn was that what was the most important things in my life were my experiences, my moments spent with those I loved and who loved me.
It was about being fully present in the moment and making lasting memories. It was about feeling healthy and brimming with joy at being in my own skin. It was about being self sufficient, and enjoying the life I was creating one action and thought at a time.
Those were the things that truly mattered to me and as such those were the things that needed to have my intense concentration. And the more I focused on those things, the more the other things came into being.
The other things, the money, the business and the luxurious things I wanted, all came to being as they were necessary to support my other goals.
( So I wanted to spend more time with my family, then I had to ease off of the long hours and late nights. Same thing for really taking care of myself and as I did that, my business started to actually take off, because I was now taking actions that were not from desperation, but from a true place of confidence and allowing the business to actually breathe!).
I started giving energy finally to the things that fuelled my soul and allowed them to light up the rest of my life. Something so simple now as I write it, took memonths to give myself permission to do.
Afterall, I had been taught to focus on making the money at all costs, on working so hard at my job, and it felt weird to not be giving 12 hours to trying to make money and build the empire.
It felt weird at first to actually spend weekends ‘slacking’, to allow myself to rest, to not be obssessed with the things that were going wrong and to celebrate no matter how small the things that were going right
Even now I’m still struggling and learning to just be! Years of conditioning will not go away overnight. it takes WORK!
And I’m very happy that I have allowed myself to come to this firm decision to shift my mindset so that it was more centered on me truly enjoying life, instead of waiting for when things were ‘perfect’ to start.
And what really helped me to get to this pinnacle point in my life?

LEVEL UP YOUR LIFE BY LETTING YOUR REAL FEARS, DESIRES AND STRATEGIES POUR OUT OF YOU WITH THIS UNIQUE AND EFFECTIVE GUIDE
If you had told me just two years ago that my epic failures would have paved the way for me to be on track to living my ideal life, I would have probably punched you in the arm and blocked you. (maybe)
First of all, don’t call out my failures like that. Second, don’t lie!
All I could see then, was how everything was out of control, how exhausted I was and how sure I was that it was only a matter of time before everything went tits up again.
I was seriously blinded to the fact that just like in those books I love, I – the heroine of this piece- was simply going through her growing pains that would finally open her eyes to the truth about what she soul deeply wanted and lead her on the path to getting it.
( Hindsight is an amazing thing when you finally get it, but in the moment, these events feel like you’re drowning in a deep abyss and ain’t glamorous or as fun as they make it seem in the books and movies!)
And if you had told me that I could turn my life around through journaling, there would have been a real high possibility that I would have thrown water at you and told you to ‘ Buzz off’.
And it’s not because I didn’t like journaling, rather it was HOW I had been journaling that would have made me think that you were just being annoying for no reason … and possibly taunting me.
For me, journaling was tantamount to simply reporting the details of my day into a book, to vent about something or to just express myself in a safe-ish and private place, with some thoughts about how I felt about an event, but certainly not as I use it now.
It was not an activity I saw being even remotely possible to being described as ‘ life changing’ or even something that could help me in real time, so you cannot begin to imagine my shock when I started learning about journaling prompts and actually tried them out for 10 days!
It was such an eye-opener for me!
Who knew, I could get this level of insight into myself from just expressing myself on paper? Everyone….apparently.
I had enrolled in a free event with Amanda Frances, and it was to help entrepreneurs to release the blocks they had around their businesses and money, while guiding us to being honest about how we envisioned them to function and convert.
Now Amanda is one of the few business coaches who believes that mindset goes a long ass way towards success in all forms and so, her homework was in the form of journaling prompts.
And these prompts really opened up my world to what I had OBVIOUSLY been missing out on for way too long.
With the prompts, I had to really zero in on the question and be honest with myself about the corresponding answer, since that would determine how I structured the business and get those results I was craving.
This process also showed me just how much I was still lying to myself and attempting to keep even my thoughts about my future and my desires as safe and vague as possible.
It brought home with startling clarity that if I was still playing small even to myself, then I was in a real bad way after all and I was tired of that!
I was tired of feeling like I couldn’t express my real wants even to myself because the crushing disappointment of not finding a way to make them a reality may send me crazy.
I was tired of feeling like I was being called for so much more but in the moment being stuck AF and could not see the trees for the bushes.
I was exhausted living in the problem and not allowing myself to believe that I was capable of the solution.
I had somewhere along the way accepted that failure was more likely and reasonable an outcome than me actually achieving what I wanted to.
I was so over all of that!
I wanted to be honest with myself finally and I could feel this block in my brain, hiding my true wants away from me, in the same manner as when I hide sweets from my 5 year old cousin- just out of reach.
It was beyond infuriating and in my frustration, I challenged myself to flip the script and instead of getting angry and petulant, I’d calm down and get to the bottom of this.
So I took the time to clear my mind ( not easy at all!) , to relax my breathing, and to focus on the truth of the questions presented to me.
I also allowed myself to not stress about the length of my answers, rather just on being honest and not shying away from the truth, even as my brain tried and kept trying to switch gears. Honestly, it felt like i was trying to wrangle a stubborn horse into a pen!
And do you know what?
It brought such clarity to my life; I started to get excited again and my brain reignited with so many ideas for what I wanted to implement in my future and business. I felt some of the tension I’d had from wrangling my thoughts and some of my limiting beliefs melt away and I felt lighter.
My head no longer hurt and felt foggy, my shoulders were suspiciously looser and my whole body was buzzing with a very different type of energy.
Re-reading my answers a day later- because I believe in letting things marinate- I allowed them to trigger whatever emotion denoted within me and gave myself permission to simply feel them.
To not scrutinize them, or wrestle with them but to simply let them wash over me like waves crashing on the sandy shores and allow my real thoughts to come to light from the vault in my mind.
Allowed them to challenge, inspire and dare me to do something about them, to turn them from fleeting thoughts triggered by intuitive nudges into aligned actions.
And that was what I did.
For those who know me, you know that I love writing things down and creating resources (I have too many outlined ideas for projects! Guys it’s a problem!).
So that is what I did.
I set pen to paper and created the Level Up Journal Prompter, because I needed to go through the self –reflective process again, but this time the target would not be for my business, rather it would be for my life.
I had started to feel disconnected from myself in ways that defy explanation and meditation was just not enough to help me to feel reconnected again, plus I was listening to a lot of mindset coaches and they introduced the concept of ‘ Next Level Self’ which for all intents and purposes was your ideal, leveled up version of self.
The version of you that has moved past your blocks, is living the life you could only have dreamt of right now and has an improved mindset.
And I knew that to get to the true, honest to God version of my leveled up self I had to go through the steps. I had to reconnect with myself first- become consciously aware of whom I was right now, and become aware of the other factors that would be impacting on my growth.
So I sat down, created the questions, answered them, and guided myself along the path to not only reconnecting to who I am right now, but also who I am growing into!
Those who have already bought it since its launch this year, told me that it has helped them to become more aware of themselves, realize just what triggered their limiting beliefs, helped them to repurpose them and has challenged them to be more honest about what they really want out of life and what energy and effort they were truthfully going to put into making those thoughts reality.
It’s all about leveling up and growing into an enhanced you, with love, understanding and the strength accumulated for the you of right now!
Once you have learnt how to truly reconnect with yourself and allow yourself to grow or ‘level up’ everything else gets to work a whole lot better.
Those worries that have been plaguing you, that you’ve been shoving down, they become indicators and add to your strategies list.
Those people, who always try to use your insecurities against you, are suddenly powerless because you now are able to create and enforce your boundaries.
That feeling of being lost, disappears because you now have a Light Me up list and know yourself even better.
Those tight shoulders and strained back that are always bearing the load of your stresses can finally unwind and relax, because you’ve figured out the best way to actually release your stress, so you have more fun, laugh more and spend more time with those you want to.
The Level Up Journal Prompter comes with 9 unique themes, all designed to help you explore and delve deeply into the best thing ever created in this dimension- You and guides you to see yourself for real.
It also helps to show how far you’ve already come and how to bridge the gap from the awesome you now to the Next Level version of you!
