We are already one month into the new year – woooooahhhh! Yes, it comes and goes so fast.  I used to think I had time. Now I know my time is also self-created.

When we truly embody our feminine spirit – we know to be with our journey and enjoy it or at the very least notice the learning moments of the journey, to take them in, reflect, grow and evolve from….

It is in that spirit that I share this list with you:

Create What You Really Want – 5 Personal Insights

May they empower you to make awesome forward movement in your year.

                                    5 Insights to Create What You Really Want

1.Comparison.  Years ago, a mentor taught me a game-changing empowerment secret: use comparison to pull yourself forward (instead of tearing yourself down) by comparing where you are now to where you once were.

We talked about this in the Raise Your Glass end-of-year reflection call. Where you there?  It is so powerful, especially for women. Even in a “boring” year, we accomplish more than most people do in a decade. We can benefit from the learning for years to come, if we take the time to gather said learning in the first place.

Stop comparing yourself to Her. To Them.

Allow yourself to revel in your own accomplishments and acknowledge how far you have come.  Compare yourself to your own journey of where you were last year – 5 years ago.  You are doing great – know that and own it.

 

2. Choices.  We always have the choice of resistance or allowance.  Allowance is our natural state.  It’s how we’re born when we enter the world – receptive, deserving, and open. Resistance is a behavior; a pattern of thinking or believing that is learned.  

I know at times it can be confusing to decipher the difference but if you remember that our supply is truly unlimited and everything desired is already in reach – it becomes easier to see where you are showing up.

Here’s the deal.  You can only receive as much as we are willing to allow. You will know you are in allowance when you are actually taking the actions required to create what you want.

That’s right – allowance equals action of some kind!  

Apply for the job.  Stop eating sugar. Go to bed earlier. Seek knowledge. Meet new people.

I realized I was doing some of my own resisting. For example, I made new decisions for myself and business this year by listening to my soul. Yes, awesome.  That means I must now allow in new ideas, ways of being and opportunities to show up. By resisting, I end up falling back into old patterns of doing things. 

Sometimes it feels crazy and awkward in transition. It is part of change. I am continually recognizing this and taking new actions forward.  I know it is the only way to get to my desired place.

What are you resisting? When you look at your list of New Year’s intentions, where might the resistance be showing up? Please trust me when I say this is best to figure this out now, because the only cause of non-miracles is resistance.

 

3. Things are as easy or as hard as you make them.  As an online coach to brave women, I hear a lot of women struggle with the conflict of HOW to get what they want. There is fear that it will never happen. For most women, change, massive growth and expansion IS a ton of work. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

What creates the resistance is not “the work or the HOW” itself, but our clinging to the myth of “hard,” refusal to believe we can really have what we want and resistance to allowing ourselves to truly be supported.

Oftentimes, we need to let go of what is no longer aligned with our bigger desire or next step. For me, it was to stop doing so much externally.  Going to many physical meetings, for example.  Attending or facilitating 6 networking meetings month was more time inclusive than the meeting itself.  It also included getting dressed, travel time, unplanned stops along the way…

Seriously, if I want to be more creative and offer more life supporting online classes – I need to make the time to do so.  I was telling myself it was hard to create programs.  But the truth is, I love it and it is not so hard. But I was not making enough time for it.  Acting like superwoman goes against what I want to model.  I got confronted with myself and reminded to practice what I preach.

Whatever “it” is … does not have to be hard.   Yes, there are external circumstances that are outside of your control. But we all play a role in whether something is hard or not. A good portion of “hard” is self-created, and exists only in your own mind.

What can you let go of that will allow your desire to come easier?  Is it something you are physically doing that is distracting from what you really want?  Is it what you are saying to yourself – “it’s too hard,” “I’m not good enough.”  Possibly both.

 

4. Every creation is really a co-creation. I believe in the Divine, God, Source Energy – and   we are aligned together with hands of the seen and unseen. It is the life force energy we all belong too.  Your dreams – the lifestyle change, the new career or business, a readiness for love, etc, – cannot be created in a vacuum and all by yourself.  Your good comes from your innate connection and [S]He works through other people. Without a doubt.

You are not alone. Ever. Nor can you create alone. Which means that you don’t have to do it all alone. This is some good news!

Find your way to or back to your spiritual center.  It will also be there waiting with open arms.

 

5. Relationships with others are everything. On top of the fact that we do not create anything alone, ever, and never have to do it all ourselves… we are here to create, and that means connecting with other beings, human and otherwise, on a deep level. How you choose to show up with the people around you may be the #1 indicator of your quality of life. This goes from your closest friends, your ex, the peeps at the office or the outsiders you feel envious toward.

So choose love. It feels good, turns you into an attraction magnet and is actually pretty easy when you get past your own perceived limitations.

You get to decide how you will respond to the challenges – and you will move through them much quicker when you drop the resistance and allow them to teach you. Seriously.

A mentor or someone not in your immediate circle can help wonders with this.  They can see you from the point of your future and not your past.

There we have it, some of my own secrets to creating a life I really want.  Have faith darling, use the Universal Laws, make the right choices for your dreams, be open and allow yourself to be supported.

I Am Lovable!

by Teresa Salhi

I Am Lovable!

Before I get to the topic of being lovable, let me start with being confident.  I used to believe that being a confident woman meant I had to get out there and do the hard, unimaginable and face the fear zone head on.

I've run a few of those 26.2 mile marathons, traveled alone to foreign lands, applied for jobs bigger than me, had a baby when I was barely done being one, spoke in front of 100's of people, chased a child molester in the dead of night…..I survived them all.  I succeeded.  And yes, I show up today a more confident woman due to going for it.

I also want say that it takes something else to walk the talk of a confident woman.  It takes a special way of being – a gift – that everyone has but alot fewer dare embody.  This gift is often harder to open than anything else. The gift is being lovable.

I am lovable imageAnd this one was harder for me than any external action I took on. I didn't always feel lovable and I had many experiences in my life where what showed up for me was a mirror to my feeling of unlovability or not enough.  That is where the pain comes in. 

You see, everything on the inside is reflected on the outside, eventually.

The truth is, we were born lovable. A baby cries knowing they are precious and someone will come.  A puppy runs and jumps without a care in the world. They know they are loved and will be cared for.  Somewhere between then and perhaps now – you've lost that knowing.

You've experienced setbacks, challenges, losses and pain.  You feel sometimes life is against you, life is hard and often lonely. Only skinny, pretty girls get the good stuff. 

You might you just need to do that thing and you will be more confident and life will be good again, right? Yeah, it will surely help.

What You Really  Need is a Dose of Lovability

  • Others will love you to the degree you love yourself.
  • They will see it when you do.

Relationships require love.  You need to give it to yourself so you have some to give away.  So you can receive from them too.  You will also attract people into your life that love themselves.  Life will get so much better this way. 

Love is what really builds confidence.  It is the easier way.  Yes, climb the mountain but climb it with love.  Believe in you.  See yourself shine and know you are capable, unstoppable, worthy of success and inspiring so many.  Love does this.

Knowing you are lovable is demonstrated by being gifted your precious life, being alive, having unique abilities, ideas and quirky little ways that attract your perfect tribe of followers.  

Accepting you are lovable is not about the past, the size of your bank account or the color of your skin. You are not your age, your size, your body – what you really are is lovable.

If you are in doubt of how you feel about being lovable, you are not alone.

Other great women like Princess Diana and Marilyn Monroe didn't believe they were lovable.  They needed the world to show them and when the world did, they still did not believe.  So you see, no one else can do it for you.  No one else can give you the love you deserve like you can.  You don't need the whole world to love you – you need you more than anyone else. It will always feel empty or lacking, fearful, and alone inside until you give yourself the gift you have been carrying inside your whole life.

Right now it is time to stop chasing love or searching for your value.  You already have it inside.  Let it surround you.  

Tell yourself everyday in every way you can. I AM LOVABLE.

I am lovable image

Put it where you eyes go and Post it. Shout it. Sign it.   Breathe it. Write it on your hand if you have to. 

 

This is the way of a confident woman.  She is lovable.  You are lovable. Got it babe?

Teresa Salhi

I work with women to reach their highest potential, out in the world, in their personal lives and their careers.  Going thru a rough spot? Lost and confused? Heart broken or pissed off?  Yep, life throws us into transitions, shakes our confidence and leaves us feeling stranded….it can happen. That is where a coach, mentor and confidante can help.  To listen and to take action.  I've got your back.  Let's chat.  It's on me.

Create Mini Retreat at Home

New Beginnings 2016

 

Winter Retreat Saced Space

It’s a potent time to release what no longer serves, and to plant the seeds of what we desire to create in the next cycle.   And yet – in the hustling of the holidays… how often do we actually create the time and space for ourselves, despite our best intentions?

 

That’s why I was so inspired to create this special gift for you today.  

 

Creating quiet time and reflection for ourselves are not luxuries – they are requirements.  It’s imperative that we periodically break from our individual and collective routines and turn inward, because…

 

It’s in the silence and stillness that we are able to hear the true voice of our desire.

 

It’s in the silence that we receive the guidance that we need to enter our next phase of creation.

 

It is out of silence that ALL that we create emerges.

 

One of my favorite ways to enjoy a sacred pause during the holidays is to create a sacred space and mini-retreat.

 

So in honor of the winter solstice and our next phase of collective creation, here’s my simple guide to create a winter retreat that recharges your body, mind and soul. 

 

This structure can be used for a number of things… reflection, planning, rejuvenation or all of the above.

 

1.  Decide upon the time.  Carve out a couple of hours, or a day, or even a long weekend if that serves you. And most importantly, let people know that you will be unavailable and don’t want to be disturbed.

 

2.  Prepare for your retreat.  Gather the supplies that you need and prepare your space. A few of my favorite retreat supplies include:

 

  • A journal or notebook
  • A calendar or planner if you will be planning
  • Candles
  • Fresh flowers or winter tree boughs, leaves and cones
  • Nourishing foods & hot tea
  • Soft music
  • Any ritual supplies you like such as crystals or things to raise your vibration – essential oils are great for this

 3.  Purify and cleanse.  The simplest way to do this it to take a luxurious shower or bath, and visualize the water washing away all that no longer serves you. Or you may prefer to smudge yourself and your space with incense or sage. 

 

It’s also important to empty and cleanse your mind at this point.  Use your favorite sacred practice to release stray thoughts, worries, to-do lists, or concerns. 

 

My favorite way to empty is to close my eyes, breathe deeply and imagine all of those things simply draining away, safely knowing that I can pick up anything I release for the time being, when I so choose.  And remember to turn off your cell phone.

 

4.  Formally open your retreat.   Once in your retreat space, allow yourself to fully arrive.  Call back any parts of yourself that might still be hanging out elsewhere.  Continue your emptying practice so you begin with an empty cup.

 

When you are ready to begin,  light a candle as you make a simple statement of your intention for this sacred retreat time.  

 

My intention always includes making contact and connection with my personal power and divine knowing, being open to receiving the guidance that it has for me.  Or it might simply be a sense of rest and rejuvenation.  Just be sure to be clear and specific as you make this powerful claim.

 

5.  Engage in the activities that nourish you.  Perhaps you’ve decided to do some planning, or journaling reflection on the prior year.  Or perhaps your retreat time includes movement or time in nature. A long, reflective walk can be extremely replenishing. I get some of my best insights and guidance in nature!  Be sure to include nurturing, healing foods if you’ll be in retreat for longer than a few hours.

 

6.  Formally close your retreat.  Once you’re complete, you’ll again want to delineate the transition.  Express gratitude to yourself for the gift of this sacred time, and gratitude for the guidance and wisdom you’ve gleaned.

 

7.  Allow some integration time.  This is a super-important step!  Your being needs time to fully download your retreat experience, and rushing right back into the hustle and bustle and navigating everybody else’s priorities interferes with this process. 

 

I recommend staying off the technology or simply keeping your schedule clear for another 24 hours or so. Whatever you do, just be sure to put some attention on honoring the integration process and allowing yourself to return to the present with grace.

 

So there’s a simple structure for your winter (or anytime) retreat. I hope you’ll carve out some time in the coming week to honor yourself and nurture the powerful woman  you are.

Women Hold a Spiritual Place for Our Families and Communities

When we are connected to our authentic selves and the divine power of the Universe – we have the ability to inspire others, cultivate stability, bring people together and communicate in a way that empowers and creates change.  We hold a spiritual place to thrive.  

women hold a spiritual place Whether you’re single or married, it’s up to us as women to create the spiritual inspiration of those close by and as a model for our community.  

We are designed by our Divine Source to keep the fires burning and gently stir the embers of compassion and love. 

When we are connected authentically and spiritually it all seems to flow with grace and ease.

But, you and I both know we don’t always feel connected.  We don’t feel authentic or even remember what that is.  In fact, we can all easily get disconnected from our spiritual source when we least expect it.

The superwoman syndrome takes over and before we know it we are drowning in to-do lists, chaos, schedules and fear of losing control.

We forget the flow. We forget how to get there.

But we long for that feeling of safety, contentment and knowing.  That’s our flow. That’s being connected to our spiritual selves and the source that holds space in each of us.

That is when the world looks like a beautiful, inviting place…

When we are disconnected from the Divine, we drop into our lower self.  Ego. Drama. Overwhelm. Fear. Stress.  The Blame and not good enough Game.

We’ve all had those times. We totally forget that the only one imprisoning our connection is ourselves.  

When we’re disconnected from the Divine Source, we can feel like no sees us – and we don’t even want to be seen.  We feel sad and confused or sometimes pissed as hell.  We cry and know this isn’t right. 

We try to latch onto or blame someone out there, but it doesn’t work.  Is it them or us?  In the midst of chaos, it’s hard to tell. 

On the other hand… when we’re connected to our Divine Source and our authentic selves – we are so freakin’ powerful and making it happen.   

We handle the chaos and all the  sh*t that comes along.   Even in moments of craziness we might waiver yet always come back to center.  We’re able navigate life from a relative place of grace and peace.

I believe our real work as women is to continually work on our connection, inner power and bridge the gap from sometimes  – to most of the time.

I think the ability to stay connected to our Divine Source, cultivate that connection, and inspire connection in our families and community is our duty, honor, and birthright.   

As the Dalai Lama said: “The world will be saved by the Western Woman.”

It is from this strong spiritual connection to the Divine Source that builds a foundation from which everything blossoms.

Sure, some do it without this connection but oftentimes end up with an empty and unsatisfying experience overall.  Ugh.  

There isn’t enough money, sex, Botox, new shoes that can fill the hole when craving connection.

The reason you’re reading this right now is likely because you feel the pull.  And it’s no longer an option for you to keep going through life without being DEEPY connected to your authentic self and guided by Divine Source.

The yearning is growing.  That inner voice is trying to gently (or not so gently) usher you back to your soul’s path and purpose.

I spent a lot of my own life allowing myself to be disconnected, lost and confused.   Times where I was just existing and reacting rather than how I live now – creating life on my own terms and with Divine Source in my back pocket.  

I learned the hard way how find my true purpose and power by living only from what others put in front of me.  But when I could not do that one more day – I pushed forward and got the real support I needed.

I can honestly say the best feeling for me EVER – is when I follow my heart and take care of me.  Only then can I show up and lead, inspire, motivate and love others that way they deserve.  I don't have it to give if I don't give it to myself.  This has proven to be true over and over again.  

 

I hope I get a chance to show you the shortcut and help you to bridge the gap so you can be more in flow…..

It’s for women who want to go deeper, expand bigger, and uplevel any area of their life.

 

You see, when I found my way, I knew my calling was to support other women like me – who are ready to be more of the woman they are meant to be.

This is all about YOU reaching your highest potential.   

 

In love and service

May You Walk Into Miracles

by Teresa Salhi

May You Walk Into Miracles Today

By Sharing Who You Really Are 

May you walk in the realm of miracles today by moving into the flow, your flow.  May you align with your truth, the real and authentic you…

The woman deep inside is edging her way to the outer world and ready to be seen and heard.  The woman is sensing a miracle ready to be birthed.  A woman as much afraid of a miracle as she is begging for it.

Miracles are not all about rainbows and unicorns for sure. Making miracles do not always come from perfect recipes or without freaking out! 

However, when we say to ourselves, 'bring it on baby, I'm ready to live my truth, to live an authentic life'. When we declare this – we then and only then – step out of our comfort zone and into the miracles zone!

Beyond yesterday's, last month's, last year's sameness. Doing it again, over and over again.  You know it. You feel it.  It is time to step into the next level of you.  There is a yearning, a stirring, a rumbling inside your soul that that is getting damn harder to ignore. 

I understand so well.  I have too felt the gap. The gap between comfort and miracle. 

"What is my next step?," I ask myself.  How can I serve more? How can I take my lessons learned and expand myself into the world more?  How can I allow myself to do this, is the real question!  How can I not feel so all alone? At least without resentment, resistance or overwhelm. Right? You feel this too?

There is an answer for both of us, all of us.

I believe there is a higher power that has our back. We were born with everything inside to create and manifest all our desires, this place is called innocence! Untainted by the outside world and all its limitations! 

Let's let go of the learned suffering and control and get back to trusting the miracle of how we came to be.

Oh we must, we must keep listening to our intuition, we all receive these messages from God/Universe. We all have this inner voice talking to us, whispering waiting for us to step into our extra-ordinary life the one that is waiting for us.

When you find find your courage to act, you will walk in the direction of what you want and leave yourself open to receive the miracles from a higher power.

We are living in a time where we must speak our truth and get really get good at being authentic.  Pay attention to this in your personal lives and career interactions.

When you are not being honest to yourself or anyone else, you will feel it and witness this – as its mirrored back to you in your experiences.  We talked about that in a recent blog post too and how the planetary alignments highlight this in our life.  Read here.

Carry on in the direction of your destiny.  Allow yourself to take a step into your every calling land of miracles. This is where YOUR unique magic happens!

 

Let's go!

The Relationship Mirror

by Teresa Salhi

Relationships are the foundation of our happiness and wellbeing.   They are also a mirror to our inner self.

Our relationship with the external world (people, things) and our relationship with the internal world (ourselves, thoughts, feelings, beliefs).  It all matters. Everyday we get the opportunity to make ours a little juicier, happier, with more understanding, rewarding, forgiving and to let go of or embrace more of. 

 

It's all about choices and when you feel overwhelmed by or blinded to your choices- it may be time to seek outside support.   I did and I can now offer my expertise to you. 

 

I learned the hard way thru alot of tears and despair.  I was making wrong choices and most of it had to do with how I treated myself.  I didn't realize I was contributing to my failures due to lack of my own self love.  I thought it was because they didn't love me – but that was the ugly mirror. 

 

You can attract loving relationships to you and it stays when you love yourself.  This will help.

 

Also, some say astrology plays a role in supporting our relationships too. Our featured article by Sheri Horn will talk more about that. 

Sheri Horn (see bio below) is our newest blog writer at Empower The Dream, she will share her wisdom, wit and align you with the stars!  Enjoy!

HOW INTIMATE CAN YOU GO?

LIBRA NEW MOON OCTOBER 2015

 

The Libra New Moon ushers in roughly two weeks during which we are presented with the opportunity to go deep — about our partnerships — the most important one of which is our relationship to self…

 

With Mercury in Libra until November 2, and Venus in Virgo until November 8, this Libra New Moon provides us the archetypal energy necessary to delve seriously into how our partnerships mirror back to us our very own energies.

 

However, what's most important to understand about Libra's archetypal energy is that it's always inherently aware of "the other."  This awareness necessarily leads to understanding "as within, so without," which in turn allows us to see our true selves through the energetic makeup of someone else…

 

And it's our acceptance or rejection of the energies of those around us — and with whom we choose to partner — that tells the tale of true enlightenment!

  

So what about when "the other" projects back to you stuff you don't like?  Do you continue to try to change him or her? Or do you assume the only way to relate is to let them walk all over you?  Common sense dictates that many of us fall somewhere in between these two extremes, and that our choices vary throughout our lives, depending on our age and stage.

  

What She Said…

 

Transiting Uranus opposite this New Moon may lead to sudden departures in relationships, or — better yet — sudden realizations and aha! moments where all was cloudy but NOW all is clear.  These revelations, regardless of how and about whom they manifest, are meant to teach you more about yourself…

 

As we move forward toward our highest karmic destiny — which is to know ourselves so that we may love and accept ourselves for who we really are — it benefits us to realize that we discover exactly who we are by using others as our mirror.

 

Instead of alternately being horrified, hurt, saddened, embarrassed, enraged, or (fill in the blank), we may recognize instead that the words and actions of others stem from within — ourselves! While this is such a bitter pill for many of us to swallow, swallow it we must if we are interested in growth in consciousness.

 

Anything that helps provide us with greater knowledge about ourselves in turn allows us to feel compassion.  When we show compassion to ourselves, we manifest it out in the world in the form of others capable of expressing such compassion back to us…

 

"So then, the relationship of self to the other is the complete realization that loving yourself is impossible without loving everything defined as other than yourself."

~ Alan Watts

 

Think about it: This makes hatred virtually impossible!

   

When you truly "get" that your shadow side is repressed and then projected out onto others and comes back to you in the form of their words and actions, then you understand why acceptance & love for all beings is important: Namely because when you accept others for who and what they are, you are consciously (or unconsciously!) accepting yourself.   This happens when you recognize their energies as your own.

You are perfect just the way you are.  You are not the opinion of others.  You are not damaged goods regardless of how many set backs or failures.  That is what makes you strong.  You are perfect because of your experiences.

 Feminine Intuition is How You Are Divinely Aligned to Your Inner Power Source 

feminine intuition

However, we don't always give this gift of our intuition and life guidance the attention it deserves or or allow it to serve us when we most need it.  Oftentimes, before we embrace our intuition as the guiding force in our life, we have a tendency to seek direction and approval externally, mostly from the people around us. We are also more often followers rather than leaders.

 

If we do lead, we may find ourselves doing so by consciously or unconsciously instilling some form of fear in others so that they comply, mostly because we're living in fear ourselves – this happens with men and women.

We tend to manage our lives intellectually. In other words, we get stuck in our heads, keeping ourselves preoccupied with juggling an assortment of activities and responsibilities in order to manage our lives on the surface. Being in our heads is primarily a masculine trait – we all have masculine and feminine ways of beingMeanwhile, our feminine side is feeling empty, hungry for meaning, restless, somewhat lost, and ungrounded.

This is also why we tend to keep ourselves so busy. It's one way to distract ourselves, at least temporarily, from experiencing the low-grade inner anxiety that haunts us. But there's a better way. 

The better way allows you to engage on a deeper level with your feminine wisdom – your feminine intuition.

Sharing this with my coaching clients is first and foremost, as well as, how to use their intuition to proactively align with  the law of attraction.  The 2 together are double duty success magnets to create the life you really want, the love you desire, the job you dream about and on and on.

Let me ask you…..

Are you honoring your intuition? Do you take time to engage it? Do you trust? Do you listen? It's not a secret that you have this tool but it may become dormant without use.

Here are some questions to ask youself that will help you be more conscious of your inner guidance and give it more attention.

  • How much are you in the habit of honoring your intuition?
  • What is your response to guidance when it speaks to you?
  • Do you pay attention or do you just push it away?
  • Do you have a delayed reaction?

Human Freedom

by Teresa Salhi

True freedom has to do with the human spirit — it is the freedom to be who we really are.

We all say we want freedom.  But how do we get it, do we have it now, who stops us from being free? We blame the government, we blame the weather, we blame our parents, we blame religion, we blame God. Who really stops us from being free? We stop ourselves. What does it really mean to be free? Sometimes we get married and we say that we lose our freedom, then we get divorced and we are still not free. What stops us? Why can’t we be ourselves and allow ourselves to live with a sense of freedom?

Human Freedom

We have memories of long ago, when we used to be free and we loved being free, but we have forgotten what freedom really means.

If we see a child who is two or three, perhaps four years old, we find a free human. Why is this human free? Because this human does whatever he or she wants to do. The human is completely wild. Just like a flower, a tree, or an animal that has not been domesticated — wild! And if we observe humans who are two years old, we find that most of the time these humans have a big smile on their face and they’re having fun. They are exploring the world. They are not afraid to play. They are afraid when they are hurt, when they are hungry, when some of their needs are not met, but they don’t worry about the past, don’t care about the future, and only live in the present moment.

Let's give it another try, own our freedom, living in it now.

So how do you attract your soul mate?  It's a question often asked. 

I have a personal testimony and a recommendation for you.  Heart Visions.  You can use Heart Visions in every area of your life, including manifesting a soul mate – like I did.

Women friends, clients, peers often tell me they want to meet their soul mate and are tired of being alone.  Maybe you feel the same way?  This little lesson will help you right now – and if you are really serious – I offer private coaching too.  More about that later….

I practiced heart visions as part of my daily meditations. I would light candles, put on my favorite instrumental music and sit in my big, cozy chair or in the bathtub. With my eyes closed,  I drop into a  feeling of joy about having my my soul mate in my life.  I would imagine what it was like and allow myself to feel within my heart the passion, the laughter, the safety, the KNOWING that he was on the way.  

I didn't know how I was going to meet my soul mate, where or when.  But I did know how I wanted to feel, the things I wanted to do and the joy I wanted us to share. 

And it happen Soul Mateed!

I met my soul mate! 

Riad and I met while I was traveling in the Mediterranean country of Tunisia, Africa.  We 'dated' on Skype for 9 months before he moved to US.  He arrived on February 14 and we married a few months later.  

 

Can You Imagine Your Perfect Love Relationship?

The Heart Vision process helps you to imagine your deepest desires and to become mentally and emotionally aligned with them. To really believe that it is yours to have!

To manifest love through Heart Visions you first want to create an experience of the desired outcome in your mind with as much sensory detail as possible (sight, smell, touch, hearing, taste).

The clearer you are about what you want, the more power you have to create that kind of relationship in your life.  Pretty awesome, huh?  This process will help you develop a clear experience for the relationship you want to have  — beginning with the end in mind.

Imagine yourself 2-3 years in the future with your perfect partner in your life. Take some time to answer the following questions through the wisdom of your future self.

  • What are the qualities you believe about yourself that have helped you create this relationship?
  • What beliefs about yourself did you have to let go of to have this relationship?
  • What mindset did you cultivate that helped you manifest this life?
  • What habits did you need to release in order to make room for this relationship?
  • What are you doing for fun together?
  • What stand-out qualities does your partner possess that won your heart?
  • What risks did you take in order to attract your partner?
  • Who did you need to forgive in order to be fully open to new love?

Now with that clarity…

  • What action can you take right now that will move you in the direction of your dream relationship?
  • What qualities can you embody that will serve you most in attracting the relationship you want?

Enjoy the exercise it really is powerful if you can it your undivided attention.  Also, you can use the Heart Vision process for any area of your life too that you  have a deep desire for attaining.  Love. Career. Frienships.  Happiness.  

If you liked this exercise on relationships, you might als enjoy this –  The Feminine Art of Manifesting Big Love (plus others).

 

>Oh and something to keep in mind as you do the exercise<

Oftentimes, we need to go deeper and work on ourselves first.  What I mean is, we need to be the person our soul mate wants too, right?  We may be carrying around past wounds, self sabotaging behaviours, beliefs that are hurting our self love and romantic love.  Maybe you are lacking self confidence or not feeling good about your body, your education, your family…maybe there is something deeper.  Here's the deal – you can manifest your soul mate for sure – but you definitely want to be fully in alignment with all that you desire or else if may be short lived. 

I am sooooo passionate about helping woman find the love they deserve!  Finding the LIFE they desire.  Please join me for a complimentary session if you are no longer willing to settle for being alone any longer – let's talk – here's more info.

 

With love,

Teresa Salhi

What are you wearing today? Do you choose clothes, shoes, makeup, jewelry, etc that makes you feel better about yourself?  I would venture to say yes, most of us do, right?  Afterall, the media TELLS us how much clothes matter! 
 
true cost
 
But it doesn't always work that way.  There is all kinds of feeling and thoughts inside of us and under our clothes.
 
There are days when we don't want to draw attention to ourselves so we try to hide – that's the day we wear our drab clothes, hoping to become invisible to the world. "Please don't see me or talk to me today."  " I feel unimportant, not good enough, and no one else cares so why should I ?"
 
Clothes definitely have a big impact on our lives and we have a variety of emotions that are tied to them.
 
Then there is another side – the one even more invisible and unobvious.  This is what I also want to share and what prompted me to write this brief article. Hopefully it will bring your awareness and remembrance to a few things that can help all of us to be more conscious of the decisions we make. 
 
It is still about clothes and what they really mean in our life on an evolutionary level, as well as, individual. 
 
You see, I watched this movie last night.  The True Cost
I am quite aware of our social impact with the food industries and our journey of the health and wellness it can produce or detriment in our bodies. 
 
In fact, it was another documentary my husband and I watched last week that prompted him to stop eating meat and dairy at that very moment!  Now this is a man who had one of the strongest belief systems I've ever  heard on why he needed meat and dairy. I have not been an advocate of either for a few years but haven't been able to communicate the reasons why to him in a way that made sense to him.  Not until he saw this documentary.  It has been 9 days and he has not touched any of it.  Everyday he mentions how enlightened he is that he has finally heard the real story…..and that's all I will say about that right now because it is really a whole other story……
 
Anyway, I guess I had a blind eye when it came to my designer jeans and the sexy must-have sandals. Let me explain….
 
Now most of us have heard of sweat shops, yes?
 
Well, this movie took it to another level.  It is not only cheap labor but the sheer destruction to our planet and fellow sisters
 
Here is the trailer:
It doesn't go into the full disclosure of the movie, I recommend you watch the full version too.
 

This movie really opened my eyes and my heart in so many ways.  I hope you can find it and watch it too.  There is so much that goes on in our world and within ourselves that is worth taking a closer look at so we can show up more conscious, more loving, more considerate, more compassionate, more knowledgeable so we can make our decisions from a broader perpective.

Also, maybe today is a good day to love yourself regardless of what clothes you are wearing.  That is when our life really begins to make sense and bring forth ultimate happiness. 

I posted this on my facebook page too – I would love to hear your comments – and see what else we have there for you.

Judging Others

by Teresa Salhi

The Dare To Stop Judging

Most of us don't realize how often we judge.  We gossip about our ex's wife, our boss's new glasses, we look down on our colleague's or neighbors parenting skills – the list goes on.

A few years ago – my coach asked me to take a personal assessment on how much I judged.  This was about others and it was about myself.  I learned alot, including why I judged.

We're often motivated by a need to compare ourselves favorably with the people around us.  We tend to judge others in areas where we feel most vulnerable or not good enough

If I'm constantly worried about something – like I used to worry if I was cut out to manage that promotion of handling an international client portfolio and 30 employees (which is what was happening at the time but have since created my own business).  On one occasion, I recall a colleague being late for a new client welcome meeting, I found myself rolling my eyes and had no compassion to extend. Why? Because I was still beating myself up for flaking on a work related event, let me explain….. 

What I realized later is, in these moments we often unconsciously look for ways to make ourselves feel better by judging them and telling ourselves we are at least better than that!

We do this in our personal relationships and social relationships.

When we start to notice and gain awareness of when and why we judge others – we open up a very self empowering opportunity for ourselves. 

Judgment kills empathy and empathy is what fuels trust and intimacy.  It starts with showing compassion for ourselves.  Only when we feel comfortable with our choices, embrace our own imperfections, will we stop feeling the driving need to criticize others.

Let's take this one step further.  We are often triggered by others when we have a common trait with ourselves.  Other people in our life are our mirrors.I don't mean every single person in your life is your mirror for every single thing.  I am referring to the people that seem to give you the most charge.

 

Here's the  Dare.

Week 1

Become more aware and mindful.  Be aware to what you're thinking, feeling and saying – and why. It might seem awkward at first, but the next time you feel judgmental, stop and ask yourself – What is really going on here?

I kept little sticky notes around to remind to be more aware of my judgments.  No one else knew what the sticky notes meant, but I did.  They just said – WHY?

Also,  I kept a little notebook on my desk and when I caught myself judging or even after the fact – I wrote it down and reflected on it later. Now this is real eye opener to see how much was really going on!

 

Week 2

Declare a judgment-free week.  There will be long periods of silence, it's a shocker when you realize how much "connecting" we do by talking about others.  This week is also about learning what you may want to course correct with you our own behaviors  – a little at a time – goes along way. That is what I did and it has been life changing for me and made me a better person.  Better with others and with myself!

Being a Visible Woman

by Teresa Salhi

What does it mean to be a visible woman? 

From my perspective it means allowing yourself to be seen in the world for who you are, with personal mastery and confidence.   Not always easy and surely not always understood by others.

But well worth the work and commitment.  You are likely feeling the pull to be more tooTo be seen and heard.  To have love, success and make a bigger impact. 

Right?

I get that now, but I didn't always.  I often wanted to hide behind others or not speak up for fear of being misunderstood or sounding stupid. 

Also

  • I was afraid to say what I wanted – (or even know what I wanted)
  • I was afraid of making mistakes or not being liked
  • I didn't have the confidence to step out of my old way of being
  • I didn't think I had the skill to learn or the capacity to receive more
  • I didn't feel pretty enough
  • ..yes, lot of reasons why not

 

But, at the right time – I got my shit together.  I got sick and tired of playing small, feeling invisible, not allowing myself to have the love, the career and the joy….I wanted more and I figured out just what that was.  It was mine to decide and have.


Your femininity, commitment and personal power sets an example and literally sends out the vibrations of what’s possible for you.

 

Who you are…

 

Your presence and connection to yourself is what makes you unique, brilliant and destined for successyet, unique and brilliant are only one part of the equation.

 

Becoming destined for success requires way more of YOU…

 

  • Stepping forward, elevating and mastering yourself, even your business or relationship skill-sets…that ultimately, empowers you to be of greater service and support to others.

  • Focusing in on a deeper level of strength and determination that sets you apart from just "good enough" and moves you into excellence and elegance in all that you are and all that you do

  • Making an even greater commitment to go beyond what you thought was possible for your success, your love life, your business – all of it.

  • Redefining who you are now + cultivating who you’re required to become in the process.

 

This process is called Mastery…and, it's reflected in ALL areas of your life.  It's allowing yourself to be visible.  To let go of what they expect or want from you.  To build up your confidence and personal power so you can achieve a level of excellence in ALL that you are and ALL that you do – this is and art and you become the the masterpiece of a confident visible woman.

 

It's a further development of both your mindset and skill setIt can be taught…and it can be learned.

 

Dream Big!

Finding Me – It’s Time

by Teresa Salhi

What is the secret to finding me?

Do you wonder why at this point in your life you feel as if you are missing out on really living your divine purpose, manifesting your desires or realizing your fullest potential? 

Do you wonder, what is really going on here?

The answers may notbe what you'd expect.

 

 

Here is my take on it, what I've learned from my own experiences and from many other women I've had the chance to work with.

 

Oftentimes a woman will spend far too much energy denying or trying to cover up who she really is.  Not fully expressing herself, hiding or not even knowing who she is, or saying what’s really on her mind, or hiding her unique perspective out of fear that no one will understand her or support her…..

Just recently one of my clients admitted that she feels like there’s this whole other huge dream life hiding within her and begging to find a way out.  But she’s been ignoring it and holding it all in… out of fear. Fear of being judged, of people not truly seeing or understanding her, of what it will mean if she really lives who she feels she is.  She is tired of it all and tired of asking herself – who am I?

 

Does this feel like anything you have experienced?  If so, I have some good news that will help! 

Finding Me

 

You have a couple of choices here:   You can keep trying to hold it all in and never be fully you.  You may continue feeling like you're missing out; on the verge of explosion at any moment; unexplainably busting into tears; losing your passion for life, love, and level of success that includes purpose, money and true happiness.

Eventually, escaping the pain all that pressure causes may require drinking too much alcohol, pretending, choosing people unwisely, over-shopping,  over-eating or any of a dozen other distractions.   Eventually, you will have an eye-opening awareness and embarrassingly see yourself from an unsavory perspective and think, “Oh. My. God. How did I get here?  This isn’t who I am!”

Or, you have another choice.  You can find a way to allow yourself to finally feel safe and truly reveal your beautiful light to the world.   The woman who you came here to be.    Seriously, this is really the only choice – don't you agree?  It was the only sane choice for me too.  The only sane choice for your family, and the people who need your help right now.  Finding me was up to me!


 
It is time to believe in you and to know that you’re not helping yourself

or anybody for that matter by holding it all in!

 

There are some things you can step into right now that are essential to allowing your spirit and light to finally shine.

1. Uncover Your True Values.  I am not referring to your traits or personal qualities.  But what are the real priorities in your life?  You learn about yourself in a very unique way by looking at what you do each day, what you talk about, what surrounds you, how others would describe you, and more.  This is also the path to your purpose.

2.  Emotional Maturity.  Allow your light to shine and inspire others requires letting go of the baggage, drama or pain that may have been your point of contention up to now.  When you can accept yourself and others, relinquish blame of others (including you!) and take responsibility for your life (one way or another) you are suddenly able to create from a canvas that is not soiled but of pure positive love.

3.  Spiritual Connection. Recognize there is a force bigger that you.  When you allow this force, this divine energy in the world to take over, it will lead you in a different direction.  A direction away from struggle and into best of you. Learn how to ask and to follow your divine guidance.  Trusting life will brings you what you desire when you allow the path to unfold.

 

……does this resonates with you in some way? we would love to hear from you, please share your comments below….
