Personally I think that one of the most important life goals is to find out who we are. After listening to the beautiful soul that is Cara Delevingne she said “the most important journey I think all of us will go through is the journey in ourselves, to find our truth, to find who we are and what makes us happy”.
In our culture we are told if we are skinny, if we are successful, if we are famous, if we fit in, if everyone loves us then we will be happy! So why is that in 2030 scientists are predicting that depression will be the number one killer, that anxiety is on the rise and more teenagers than ever are suffering with low self esteem, panic attacks and measuring their worth by how many likes and followers they have?
When I was diagnosed at 16 with clinic depression I remember being given anti depressants, two weeks off work and six weeks counselling, funnily enough none of these short term quick fixes helped. Looking back on my life I don’t think I was clinically depressed, what I had was a spiritual depression that left me searching outside of myself to fill a dark bleak hole in my soul. I had no idea how to love or nurture my mind, my body or my spirit and I was under the illusion that someday happiness would be mine, if only I worked I harder and made myself more attractive to the opposite sex.
Later on in life after an almighty breakdown which I now see as a spiritual awakening I decided to start to repair the damage that was done to my spirit. I had to find my way back to love, to self love and it started with self respect and having the ability to see the truth about myself. This in itself is an ongoing process and I know for sure that there will never be a time or place where I say, I am done, or I have arrived. When we divert from love, from our truth we start to wear a mask and we pull further away from who our creator designed us to be. This is a PAINFUL place to be and there are many ways we can show how much we don’t LOVE ourselves.
As a transformational coach I feel it is my job firstly be the change I wish to help inspire others but also to offer tools of transformation to you, ways in which I can help you to dig deep within your soul to have your own revelations, we need to cultivate self awareness in order to heal and I love nothing more than facilitating change within you beautiful ladies that’s why starting tomorrow I am going all in with a self love challenge. Let me know if you want in.
Much love and always light
