Do you really feel yourself?

Now that sounds a little rude doesn’t it?  Do you really feel yourself?  Do you really feel what is going on for you? Are things right for you, or not right for you?  Are you living your life?

Do you feel yourself

Do you feel yourself

Do you feel your truth?

Sometimes people can go through life numb, or ignoring their feelings and messages.  Sometimes people are so focused on others, they forget to feel what is right for themselves.  Sometimes people don’t know where to even start to look about how they feel.  Sometimes people don’t want to look or feel.

how_to_feel_good_about_yourself_everyday_1Feeling your truth is about really connecting with yourself.  It is about living your truth in each and every moment.

When you live your truth, you will be making statements to yourself like:

  • This is right for me
  • I am happy.
  • I am upset.
  • I love myself.
  • I am jealous.
  • I am living my life.
  • I am scared.
  • I am trusting in what comes to me.
  • I have surrendered.

You can ask yourself these statements as questions.  Feel the answers. Your heart, your body, your soul will tell you the answers.   They will tell you your truth.

Feel your truth

Don’t turn off your feelings.  Don’t numb yourself to your truth, both good and not so good.  Being in your truth is powerful, brave and courageous.

Truthfully yours Tracy xx

 

Nourishing your soul

Do you nourish your soul each day?

Or are you too busy in your life to even consider this?

Prayer & ritual

Prayer & ritual

What is nourishing your soul?  Is it as simple as eating some special food, or doing a meditation, or is it achieved through prayer and ritual?

Many people live their lives through words such as, have to, must do and need to.

They choose to do things because they are duty bound.  They may feel fulfilled in these duties.  They may feel the need to control how they live their lives, through food, exercise and through the types of material things they own.  But are they nourished, are their souls nourished?

Nourishing your soul is much deeper than eating special food, mediation or undertaking prayer or ritual.

Nourishing your soulNourishing your soul could mean getting lost in something that makes you truly happy.

Nourishing your soul could mean, spending time with a loved one.

Nourishing your soul, could mean doing something to help someone else, just because you could.

Peaceful heartNourishing your soul is about truly living your life, it is about being in the moment, surrendering, trusting and allowing.  Nourishing your soul means not getting bogged down in troubles, rising above it all and seeing it for what it is.  Nourishing your soul, is having a peaceful heart in all that you do.

Everyone is on a pilgrimage

For centuries people have been undertaking sacred pilgrimages all over the world.  Christian pilgrims have walked along the Camino Way to Santiago De Compostela and Muslim pilgrims make their way to Mecca once in their lifetime.   I have recently had a friend and a cousin who have walked the Camino Way and I was interested to watch the movie made of the journey, called “The Way”.

Pilgrimadge path Camino WaySacred pilgrimages made me think about life.  Each of us is searching, whether it be for happiness, love, or for our purpose.

Pilgrims journeyEveryone is on a pilgrimage, it is a journey that each of us travel throughout our lives, to find the truth of who we are.

Our journeys start by doing what our parents want.  Living our lives according to their rules, values and beliefs.

As we step out of that old way of living, we begin to surrender to what is right in our lives.  When we are surrendering on the pilgrimage journey, we can feel lost and at sea in our lives.

Pilgrims Under the guise of surrender we think we are following the path, but in fact we are still living our life by old values of what we think we should be doing now.  Usually we have replaced those old values given to us by our parents, with new ones that still dont serve us.  They used to work for us in the past, but dont anymore, we have out grown them too.

At this point of our pilgrims journey, we may well become angry.  Angry at ourselves, with feelings of being stuck or thinking we have changed, but in fact we haven’t really changed anything.

going around in circlesWhat occurs next is wallowing.  We wallow in our pain and circle around, scolding ourselves that we should have moved on.  Thinking we had let this stuff go, so we can be our true selves.

Then it happens, true surrender.  True surrender is when you least expect it on the pilgrims path, where step into the truth of who you really are. There is peace in this place.  You might find that you are with people and yet you feel alone, alone in your life.

Finding who you are

Finding who you are

You begin to choose your life.  A life that is right for you, not anyone else.  It is a place of courage.

A pilgrimage is unique and only you can journey on it and surrender within it for yourself.

Journey well
