What does #igotmyownheart mean?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🔆It means you live your relationships from a SOFT and COURAGEOUS heart, instead of a place of hardness and unintegrated pain. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🔆It means the ongoing practice of deepening SELF-INTIMACY through mindful awareness, so you know your ever-evolving self so you can tend to your emotions and boundaries. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🔆It means self-ownership of your needs so you can honestly and DIRECTLY ask for what you want without down-playing yourself. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🔆It means RADICAL self-responsibility, owning your emotional wounds and shadows with attention and ownership when you project them outward onto others. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🔆It means TRUSTING yourself: that you can soothe yourself when emotionally dysregulated, so that no one else has the power to control your emotions or is to blame. (Except in the case of abuse). ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🔆It means UNDERSTANDING where your current interpersonal habit patterns came from and taking full responsibility for changing them going forward. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🔆It means freedom and sovereignty and a deep reverence for your process and others’ process no matter how messy they get. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ What does having your own heart mean to you?

According to enneagram teacher Jerome Wagner, each type is called to an authentic expression of who they are. This genuine ideal is what each type longs for deep down, but we get caught in a trap; stuck on the surface by an identity that makes us feel like we are achieving that ideal, when we’re really not. . Each type has a specific call, but we have access to all nine invitations. We are ALL called to: goodness, love, efficacy, originality, wisdom, loyalty, joy, power, and peace. At our core, though, there is a deep longing for one of these invitations that motivates us. . I’ll be sharing a series about all nine types and the specific way each type is called and caught. Enjoy! 🖤

happyheartmd. 💩 Have you ever felt like you were “not enough” or “less than...?” -

💩 Have you ever felt like you were “not enough” or “less than...?” - 👎🏻 When as children we are corrected and criticized, we lose our sense of “OK’ness.” We come to believe that we are not good enough, not smart enough, not talented enough. So we begin to strive. What we often confuse with ambition in adulthood is a masked attempt to become whole or feel complete. - 🛑 And I’ve noticed that to actually feel whole requires that we stop striving altogether. We must abandon all efforts to be other than what we already are. We must accept ourselves completely, and lovingly, as we are in this moment, warts and all. - 😌 And then, once we relax our constantly trying to be more and do more, once we let ourselves be “partial”, “crooked”, or “empty, “ something amazing begins to happen. - 👍🏻 The voice in our head pushing us to change or to “try harder” begins to quiet. And if we stick with this way of being with ourselves, of accepting ourselves as perfect just the way we are, with all of our human imperfections and foibles, the magic happens. We start to hear another voice. A kind, supportive, and loving voice inside. - 🗣 One that whispers, “you are whole.” - ♥️ Like, 🤓 Follow, & 🌎 Share this with someone you care about. 👇🏻 - #selflove #selfcompassion #wellbeing #happiness #happyheartMD

#Repost @health.at.every.size • • • • • • A difficulty that I and many other advocates face is people not being able or willing to understand your point of view. Too often we find ourselves in doubles bonds wanting to make connections with people, but feeling like a broken record.

When people are deregulated it is often due to painful past learning. They feel threatened. There are high intense reactions. They may fight (anger), flight (leave), freeze (shut down) or fawn (do whatever the person wants to avoid feeling conflict or pain). . .

It’s been a busy week. I’ve attended a couple of great events this week, and I’ll be honest - I’m feeling pooped now. ⠀ ⠀ I chose to offer myself a weekend of relaxation and I’m giving myself permission to not respond to messages or do bits of work, in favour for self-care and relaxation. ⠀ ⠀ Do you trust that when you need rest and solitude, it’s because you need it and not because there’s something wrong, that needs fixing, with coffee or stimulants to get you up to the tasks you’ve set yourself for the day ahead? ⠀ ⠀ I do sometimes struggle to do that, and what’s wonderful is not that we feel bad for caring for ourselves, but that we recognise it, acknowledge it, allow it to be, and still go ahead with what we know we need. ⠀ ⠀ I believe the biggest transformation is to be able to give to yourself with the same kindness, compassion and generosity that you give to others. ⠀ ⠀ In the meantime, I leave you with a zentangle I did recently. Much love to all of you x⠀ ⠀ #selfcare #selflove #relaxation #selfcareisntselfish #youfirst #selfcompassion #transformationalcoach #lifecoach #hsp #highlysensitive #highlysensitiveperson #highlysensitivecoach #💗 #zentangle #zentangleart #zendoodle #mindfulness #digitalart #creativity

I’ve been 160 pounds, 260 pounds, and just about everything in between. This is where I’m truly thriving. This is how I want you all to think of me - Happy. Smiling. Unafraid. Unashamed. Loving myself wholeheartedly. I used to try to hate the body shame away. “I’ll be happy once I reach _____” insert whatever weight I deemed worthy. Now I just choose to be happy, but not that fake “always happy” toxic bullshit. I just mean that I wake up every day and choose to love myself and appreciate my body and everything it has done for me. I look at my stretch marks, cellulite, and loose skin with a softness and a kindness I used to only extend to others. I know I can come across as vain to many people, but I would rather be seen as vain than ever go back to the days when I picked apart every single thing about myself and was filled with negative thoughts. No matter what people want to say, loving yourself is a radical choice in a world that tells you you’re never good enough unless you’re smaller, blemish free, and trying to chase a goal based on a photoshopped person that’s not even real. I LOVE seeing people thrive. Every selfie, every picture... I live for that. To the people who don’t support self love, wtf are you even doing? #radicalselflove #vainty #stretchmarks #perfect #beautybeyondsize #selfcompassion #carefree #bekindtoyourself #bekindtoothers #fuckdietculture

#Holiday party fun! This year has been the year of change and embracing life and all the wonderful relationships I have in my life ...learning to live in this body I was given to experience this one life I have to live. Daily I promise to show up for myself. Giving myself room to have self compassion and radical acceptance. Incorporating movement that I truly love and that brings me joy...So I’m building not only my body but my soul with #yoga and weights and loving every minute of it. #loveyourself #yogalove #strongsoul #selfcompassion

Our beliefs can become so entrenched (and if you’ve seen my last couple of posts you’ll know that our brains do little to help us out with shifting them!) Often, we must be very deliberate in our efforts to shift what we believe about ourselves. It requires an awareness of what we believe and how it impacts our behaviour, and a great deal of courage in order to try doing things differently so we can get some new data up to those pesky brains. It’s a lot like running an experiment and expanding our data set to include new information that we might miss otherwise, like this: I believe “if I do X then Y will happen” I do some version of X I see if Y happens (sometimes it will but probably much less often than my brain predicts) I update my belief to reflect this new data * I usually journal about these things as I do them, because our brains are not great at remembering info that doesn’t fit with its existing beliefs) . . . . . . . . #psychologyfact #radicalacceptance #acceptance #emotionalregulation #emotionalbalance #dbtskills #therapistsofinstagram #healthyminds #ridethewaves #selfcaretip #healersofinstagram #hearthealing #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthjourney #holistichealer #healingtools #mindfulmeditation #setboundaries #psychologyquotes #therapists #therapistlife #selfcareisnotselfish #mindfulness #selfcompassion #meditatedaily #meditated #lovingkindness #psychologyquotes #qotd #healingquotes

💫 Dressed up, naked or anywhere in between, we all deserve to feel good in our skin ..in the end of the day, we all have to live in our own body till we die, there is no way around it yet. 🤷🏼‍♀️ - There are two things that need to be addressed for us to achieve that: ☝🏻 spiritual practice - mentally accepting ourselves as we are and giving credit to our body for how hard it works for us on everyday basis #selflove #selfcompassion ✌🏻 (but equally as important) inspired action - we need to take care of the home of our soul. If you don’t give your body the right food, exercise and rest, how can you expect to feel good in it? 🍽🏋🏻‍♀️🛌 - 💬Let me know what you do to feel better about the physical part of you 👇🏻👇🏻 - 🏆bikini coach👙 📩 hana@teamlrf.co.uk / DM

None of us are able to be supportive 100% of the time. Similarly, no one is able to be supportive of us 100% of the time. Understanding this creates so much more room for us (and others) to not feel pressured to be everything to everyone all the time, but we often attribute it to someone not caring, not wanting to help, or being unsupportive. The truth is that even when we *want* to be supportive, we have our own lives. We have our own hard days and our own lack of sleep and our sickness and own worries and our own stuff, whatever it may be. Sometimes, our own stuff makes it really challenging to be supportive in certain moments. And this is okay. When we allow ourselves to communicate what we're able and not able to do, we give ourselves the chance to take care of our needs so we can fully show up when we're able to. When we allow others to express when they don't actually have space to hold for us, we create more freedom in the relationship and we avoid pressure, resentment, frustration, and disappointment. When someone needs support, I encourage you to check in and ask yourself if you're really able to support them in the way they need. If you're not, maybe it's okay to say so. Similarly, when *you* need support, I encourage you to make sure the person you're seeking support from is available and able to support you. If they aren't, you have an opportunity to seek out support that meets you where you're at, which is usually what we actually need. Expressing our needs and holding boundaries around what we do and don't have space for creates honesty and open communication in relationships, and it allows us to know it's okay if we simply don't have it in us in every given moment. It allows us to let that be okay in others, too. Thoughts to chew on. Note: there will be occasions where we have to offer support, even if we don't have the bandwidth to (I think of parents as a huge example when I say this!). This is simply a reminder to check in around what your patterns are and to get curious around how you might be able to recognize when you do and don't have the ability to fully show up. ✌🏻

What are you holding onto today? We all have something. Regret from a past relationship, anger at a former friend, disappointment in yourself, fear of failure... the list could go on and on. . This stuff weighs you down over time. The purpose of letting go is to lighten the load you are carrying. . Letting go is not a one time thing. The bitterness, anger, regret, guilt, fear or desire will return again and again, and each time, you have to decide to let it go. . It helps me to envision blowing what I want to let go of into a bubble and then watching it float away. . Today, I want to let go of my desire to try and control others. When I'm scared I have a tendency to try and take control. This works well in my job, but it doesn't help me in my relationships with the people I love. I think my intentions are good- I want to protect the people I love. But ultimately I know that I need to allow them the freedom to make their own choices. They are going to do it anyways, so I may as well free up the energy I would spend worrying and frantically trying to control their actions. . Is there anything that you can let go? . . #anxiety #anxietyrelief #letgo #codependency #mindful #mindfulness #heal #releaseyourself #releasefear #relationships #anger #guilt #guiltfree #resentment #lettinggo #alanon #compassion #selfcompassion #selflove #happiness #weekendvibes #controlfreak #codependentnomore #channelyourinnerelsa #letitgo

This girls been struggling the last few days. Accepting her changing body and letting go of control. Body confidence is not about complete body satisfaction but rather an ability to acknowledge your worth and importance beyond your aesthetics. Here are some truths I have discovered about 'body' confidence: 💛It's not a linear process, for every step I have taken forward there are times I take ten back. 💛sometimes you have to fake it until you make it. Acknowledge your negative thoughts, accept that they will in time wash over like a wave, continue killing shit anyway. 💛 show inquisitive compassion, why am I focusing in on my body with hate? What thoughts and emotions hide beneath it? 💛 if you let it, self 'body' hate will consume you and get in the way of you living life. 💛it helps to get out of your own head. Distraction. We are feeling creatures with thoughts, thoughts drive our emotions. Thoughts are NOT facts. This post is cathartic for me, penning down thoughts. But my hope also, is that others who struggle with the same thoughts will read and take comfort, it's important to be real about your feelings even in a positivity movement, my best friend @emilystupot reminds me, and I remind her too because it's easier to see the greatness in each other, but not in ourselves! If you do one thing today; google 'self compassion'.

Sharing my favourite Grinch video as a reminder to make time for self care as we head into the busy holiday season. Treat yourself, practice self-compassion, make time to sit, breathe and check in with yourself. Are YOU okay? How do YOU feel? What do YOU need? Everyone is a little messed up sometimes but no matter your situation you are valuable and you are one of a kind! #selfcare #selfcompassion #treatyourself #grinchdoesyoga

I know two things about you: 1) That you are filled with unlimited possibilities. 2) That you want every single thing you desire because you think it will feel good once you have it. __ Here’s what I also know about your desires: “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” ― Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist) __ So why are so many people not getting what they truly want? __ The key to tapping into your unlimited self, aligning with the dreams you want + inviting in more success is finding ways of feeling good now. __ In other words, you have to be satisfied with your current reality while you’re reaching for more. __ You must find a way of feeling good now, before the success you want can begin to show up. __ Your worry, doubt + fear is what is pushing it away, so when you start feeling good now, you become an energetic match to your desires. __ "If you had one goal and that was to feel good, you would never again need to hear another word from anyone. You would live successfully and happily and in a way of fulfilling your life’s purpose ever after.” – Abraham-Hicks __ If you are feeling frustrated in any way, it’s not the external circumstances that are the real reason for your struggle, it is the meaning you are giving them + how that makes you feel. __ Our power lies in our perspective. __ When you tap into the knowing that you get to choose how you feel in each moment of each day + that feeling good now is what sets the tone for what shows up in your outer world, you will make it your top priority. __ What are you ‘Feelin’ Good’ about this weekend?

I am a firm believer in this reality: our bodies are absolutely embedded with God given wisdom. 🌿 Yet, for lots of reasons like big and little T-trauma, systemic oppression, feeling shamed + more—we may not know what it means to “listen” to our bodies. We may have had to disconnect from them to survive emotionally or physically to this point. 🌿 There is no shame in this. Full stop. 🌿 But in order to re-connect with the wisdom that we are gifted with, we may need to start gentle + small. This means using compassionate attention to bring curiosity to sensations we experience, reactions that seem disproportionate, + our continual (and very human) need to rest. 🌿 The journey of embodiment is not clear cut, and yet—more + more I think this is part of what Jesus meant when he spoke of an abundant life. #trysofter
