Change Your Perspective = Change Your Life

Do you DARE to believe that your life could (WOULD) be different if you chose to look for what was already working?

 

This week I want to talk to you about PERSPECTIVE.
Perspective can make a world of difference in how we experience EVERYTHING from the big life events to the little moment to moment stuff. It can also change how life comes to us. Do you agree? I have direct experience with this.

I’m going to share something really personal with you today…. 

***(please make sure you read all the way to the end because I have some other news to share and I don’t want you to miss it!!)***

When I first moved to the little town in the foothills of the Wind River range that I’ve been calling home for the better part of the past 5 years, I was a beaten down version of my true self.

I had been through several bad relationships, a traumatic divorce, and I was about to go through another one. My second divorce was nowhere near as brutal as the first, but it still left me bruised, heartbroken, a shell of who I knew myself to be, I had two young children that needed me to be their rock, and I was in a new, small town without a single friend to call to come over.

Can you hear the sad violin music playing at my pity party? 🎶🎻😂

PERCEPTION IS EVERYTHING

The point is…this was my mindset at the time, and I made myself miserable and alone. I tried to reach out and connect with people locally, and I had the hardest time EVER making friends. I thought I made friends and they would betray me or just stop talking to me for no apparent reason. Seriously! I have lived in many places before and I’ve always made friends. I was here for 3 years before things started to shift for me, and here’s why….

I was looking for what I DIDN’T WANT
and that’s EXACTLY what I found.

I didn’t do it consciously, either. I was completely in the dark about how I was sabotaging my own life. Years later when I began to do a lot of deep, intentional work on shifting my mindset and my habits, I was able to see that it was really all my own doing. (More on how I made the shift in another post.)

Now I know that I need to set my sites on what it is I WANT,
and not get caught up in looking at what I think is missing,
because…


Do you agree? Maybe you have examples of this in your life, too. If so, please share. If not, try this:

  1. Make a list of what you CAN appreciate in your life up to this day (and even things you have to look forward to in the future).
  2. Make a list of what you WANT in your life that might not be there now.
  3. Keep these 2 lists around you (maybe even post them where you can see them in your home) and when you notice your thoughts going down the wrong path (of noticing what feels missing), pull out these lists! Remember what you have to be grateful for and what it is you WANT to see showing up in your life! ✨

Ready for the big reveal?
I’m moving again! For those of you that aren’t local, this won’t affect you at all, but for those of you that are….

I’M GOING TO MISS YOU SO MUCH!

The last two years here have been wonderful and I have so enjoyed connecting with you and serving you! I have not made this decision lightly. In fact, it is with a heavy heart that I move on, but I am doing what’s best for my little family and my own personal and professional evolution.

I am not leaving you! I will just serve you in different ways. I will no longer be able to see you one-on-one for bodywork sessions, but I will continue to connect with you through the world wide web! There are many ways that we can stay in touch — Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and right here!

Here’s what others are saying that have worked with me:


“Working with Jessica absolutely changed my life! I felt like I had hit a wall, and with Jessica’s guidance, I was able to see what patterns were holding me back. Jessica’s style of teaching is gentle and approachable, and she speaks from a place of experience and understanding, helping you make bite-size changes and celebrate them appropriately! The material in the course is extremely practical; I know that these habits will stay with me for the rest of my life.  Jessica has a wealth of knowledge in the healing arts, and she makes this information accessible to all of her students. I would recommend this course to anyone – from those beginning on a wellness path to those who have already been on one for some time.”

Raise Your Own Bar!

Raise Your Own Bar!

It took many years for me to get to the point where I could be publicly honest about my own imperfections. We look around us and see what looks like people having it all together all over the place — social media, billboards, tv, magazines, even in our communities, but the truth is NO ONE REALLY HAS IT ALL TOGETHER.

 

It only seems that way because we are seeing the very best of those people in a snapshot of their lives while judging ourselves for every single imperfection.

 

Ironically, the more we admit our shortcomings, the less important they become, and the quicker we can get on with the meaningful parts of life.
The answer? Loving and accepting ourselves.  NO. MATTER. WHAT.

I gave you some tools to use for doing just that last week. Did you have a chance to watch it yet? It’s short. Check it out HERE. I have several other helpful videos on my YouTube channel you can check out, too.

How does admitting your imperfections, raising your own bar, and unconditional self-acceptance all fit together?


Here’s how…w
e don’t have to be perfect to love ourselves, but we do have to love ourselves to keep raising our own bar.

Raising your own bar is about believing in YOU, embracing your own personal evolution, and not letting yourself get in your own way!

If you want real change, you have to BELIEVE and you have to make a choice to not get caught up in your own BULLSHIT criticism, self-judgment, and pity. And, yes, this is much easier said than done. This is why my motto is to Keep Raising My Own Bar!

Let Go of that $#*t!

Hello Thrivers!

Do you consider yourself a “thriver”? I do, but…it may surprise you to know that I don’t always FEEL like one.

I work on this stuff constantly, but that doesn’t mean I have all of my sh*t together. It means that I know it’s possible and I actively engage in making it happen.

Sometimes I feel 100% on top of my game, living in gratitude and joy, feeling alive and confident in my whole self – mind/body/spirit, and I know the practices that get me there, so I keep working actively towards closing that gap. In a big way, this path is about getting in tune with my highest self/ intuition/ Source, but more than that it’s a shift in perspective (as in what I believe about myself and the universe).

Did you know that most of your beliefs about the world, yourself, and what’s possible are set by the age of 3?

That means that the majority of us have a LOT of RE-patterning to do in order to live from our own TRUTHS. That sounds crazy, but it’s true. Right now, we are all walking around with unconscious beliefs that we’ve held onto since early childhood and those beliefs are making decisions in our lives. We are making choices every day that aren’t coming from a place of Truth and Choice, but from old habits that don’t serve us.

In this video, I share with you come of the holistic practices that help me stay on the path when I feel like I’m losing my S#*t! What do you do when you feel like you’re losing it? Let me know in the comments if this was helpful.

❣️PLEASE SHARE THIS POST! ❣️

Who Are You Becoming?

Let’s talk about EVOLUTION. Have you ever observed the plants around you and how that continue to EVOLVE? Life is resilient. Life is WILD! Every single living thing is in constant change. Why fight it?

No matter how hard we try, we can’t keep things as they are, but we CAN choose to ALIGN WITH THE FLOW of LIFE and make change CONSCIOUSLY. 

So often I hear women talk about how they want to get BACK to some previous time and space that they remember as being better than where they are now. I want to shine some light on this topic for the purpose EMPOWERING women to consciously EVOLVE into living the lives they want NOW.

One of the most powerful tools that I know of is working with conscious identity evolution. Watch the video below to learn more about how to narrow the gap between where you are and where you want to be!

I AM BECOMING THE KIND OF PERSON WHO…

It’s Time to Believe Something NEW About YOU!

What NEW thing do you need to start believing about yourself in order to be who you wat to be_1 (1)

Often in life, we cling to beliefs that (seemingly) help us just get through tough times. There’s one in particular that most of us use, and I want to talk about it because it causes us a lot of grief — “I don’t have TIME to…” Do you ever hear yourself saying that? Sometimes we might use it as an excuse to decline to do something we don’t want to do. I’m not talking about those instances. I’m talking about the times we use it to put off doing something that would actually make a difference in our lives — like self-care practices and connecting with the people in our lives. How often do you put off doing something that would nourish you off because you “don’t have time”?

I know it feels like you have a thousand plates spinning in the air and YOU (and ONLY you) have to be the one to keep them spinning or everything will fall apart. You’re the glue. You’re the Goddess. Right? I get it. The problem with this idea is that 1- it’s false and 2- it keeps you stuck in the rat race, with the belief that you’ll have time for all the things you want out of your life AFTER you just get through this next phase and everything ELSE is taken care of.

We tend to withhold the good feelings, the self-care, the things that bring us joy and nurturance, thinking those aren’t achievable in the present. What I want you to get is that it’s not an “either/or” scenario. It’s not your health/happiness/wholeness OR your family/career/community. The rest of your life won’t fall away when you start to give to your Self.  In fact, it’s the opposite! Your health, happiness, and wholeness will begin to slip away from you if you don’t make some changes in your habits and lifestyle.

Your current thinking/ mindset (beliefs) and your daily habits (actions based on those beliefs) have to CHANGE in order to make the Life You Want a reality. Who you are right now is a culmination of your own beliefs and your past actions, based on those beliefs. The life you see dangling before you — the one where you have time for taking care of you and connecting with the people you love — can NOT exist in your current life. What old beliefs are still hanging around and creating a mess of your life? What NEW things do you need to start believing about your Self/Life/Body/Finances in order to Start Living Your Dreams?

DETOX with ME!

Who Wants to DETOX With Me_Spring is upon us! I’m curious what you’ve been noticing in your body/mind/spirit during this transition. If you think about it, it’s a huge transition — the ground was covered in snow, the river was iced over, fires were in the hearths, heavier foods were on the menu, the world was a little slower and a little quieter. Then we went through an in-between period as the snow melted — lots of mud. I felt that way in my body a little bit, too.  Did you? I felt the heaviness of early spring and felt very slow and sluggish for a couple weeks.

It’s normal to feel a little “off” during these major seasonal transitions (Winter into Spring and Summer into Fall). This time offers us an opportunity to cleanse, just like the earth is doing, by letting go of the heaviness we’ve accumulated over the long winter. It also offers us a chance to hone our intuitive knowing and sync up with the rhythms of nature. Aligning with the rhythms of the natural world around us is how we thrive! Our ancestors knew it! It’s time for us to remember, too.

Spring often conjures images of tiny shoots popping up out of the soil, buds on trees, sunshine, etc. but early spring also carries with it a heaviness, as we are still transitioning out of winter. Our health is well-served by making some changes in the way we eat and what we do with ourselves during this transition. Ayurveda (literally translated as “the science/ knowledge/ philosophy of LIFE” a.k.a. the sister science of yoga) offers us much time-tested (being that it’s about 5,000 years old!) wisdom for thriving in our body/mind/spirit!

Springtime Ayurvedic Wisdom for Your Whole Self

  • Incorporate more bitter, pungent, and astringent flavors in your diet (lemon, arugula, dandelion greens, ginger)
  • Add spice to your food (black pepper, chilies, and turmeric)
  • Favor warm, light, and spicy foods
  • Reduce naps
  • Get outside and get moving
  • Consider doing a Detox
  • Eat a lighter breakfast than you do in winter
  • Only eat when you’re hungry
  • Avoid: cold foods, dairy, sweet, heavy fruits, wheat, sweeteners (except raw honey), salt, roasted nuts, fatty meats

I’m starting a detox this week and I’d like to invite you to join me. Don’t put the idea off immediately, thinking a detox is all about self-deprivation. It’s NOT! It’s simply a time to cleanse and reset so that you enter Spring/Summer with —

a BODY that feels lighter and more at ease,

a MIND that is calm and clear, and

a SPIRIT that is replenished and invigorated!

Doesn’t that sound AMAZING? If you think so, too, then follow along with me on my Facebook page! I’ll be sharing my experience and giving you tips to detox along with me. Let’s do this together! You can help hold me accountable and I’ll cheer you on in the process!


I’ll help YOU Design Your Own Detox…

  1. Week 1 is all about easing in, noticing your tendencies, and setting yourself up for success.
  2. Week 2 is the deepest part of the detox. You will decide what you want out of it and what you want to put into it, so even this deepest part doesn’t have to be hard! It’s all up to you!
  3. Week 3 is about slowly coming out of the detox and moving back into normal life (which you may have a different definition for!!)

Aren’t you curious to see HOW AMAZING YOU COULD FEEL in 3 weeks?

I AM! That’s why I’m doing it. Remember, there’s no pressure here. This is all about you, for you, and I will support you as I am going through the process with you!
