“Stand guard at the door of your mind.” ~ Jim Rohn
+ Do you watch horror movies and feel incredibly scared to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night?
+ Do you listen to the news and hear about the evil within the world and find yourself feeling fearful?
+ Do you have friends that you have coffee with and you are left feeling a little glum and deflated from the negative conversations?
If you said yes to any of the above questions we need to talk about how imperative it is for you to stand guard like a wild animal and protect the place where your soul is kept.
Ever since I started the FB group “Bloom in Confidence” and have been getting to know my tribe of Bloom Babes I have felt a zest for work! I am coming to you full hearted and ready to leave you feeling inspired. It is such a beautifully sweet feeling knowing who I am writing for, so thank you for joining and being such a huge part of my life! If you haven’t joined click here and say hello.
I am eager to share this critical information with you, so let’s begin.
Trust your instinct.
When you are left feeling deflated, or something just doesn’t feel right, that is your spirit telling you something is wrong. For example, I was at the puppy park this morning with Charlotte and the humans usually stand around and we talk. Well this morning the conversation was really negative and it was centred around all the attacks people had witnessed with other dogs. I felt really uncomfortable, fearful and I didn’t want to bring that energy into my soul. So, I politely walked away and started playing with Charlotte.
We need to protect our souls like a mother bear protects her cub. Think frothing at the mouth, constantly glancing over your shoulder to see if any trouble is coming after your treasure, think being constantly ready to put your guard up in protection.
So, how does this look to us in the modern world?
Well, how I live is very very protective, I am literally like the wild bear protecting her cub when it comes to protecting my spirit. You see, my spirit is soooo sensitive and I can be left for days replaying some tragedy in my mind. So, firstly I stopped watching the news or listening to the news. After a few months of not watching any of that crap I felt safe and secure, I felt like fear was finally lifting. I felt great not knowing about any of the violence in the world.
If you’re listening to the radio and the news comes on just put on a CD or stop listening to the radio until the news is over.
Surround your soul with other beautiful souls.
Who you spend time with is who you become! Change your life by consciously choosing to surround yourself with people with higher standards! – Tony Robbins
Choose to have people in your life that light you up, make you go after your dreams, encourage you, and people who do not put you down!
As a result of me going on a journey of guarding my spirit I looked around at the people in my life and I lost alotttttttt of friends because they did not feed my soul, instead they squashed it.
I lovingly released all the friends that didn’t make me light up, that didn’t support my dreams, were jealous of me and would as a result belittle me and try to make me feel small. Trust your instinct and ask your angels to help you to have the strength to release friends that are not supportive of you.
Sometimes we need to get permission to do scary things, so here is your permission. I give you permission to not hang out with certain family members. It is not your obligation to hang out with family that make you feel less of who you are, who put you down, who belittle you or who bring out the worst in you. Just because they are family DOES NOT give them permission to treat you badly, there is no jail free card here.
Friends are God’s way of apologising for your family. – Wayne Dyer
Stand at the entry to your soul and guard that gorgeous spirit of yours. Do not let anything past that could wound or destroy!
You are an exquisite flower.
I want you to think of yourself as a beautiful flower in a garden, each day weeds pop up around you, the sun can dehydrate you, a bird may come and pull a leaf off you, a worm may nibble on one of your pettles. In order to keep yourself alive, growing and showing your beauty each day you need to be watered, feed with great compost and nutrients.
Listen to inspiring people who give you hope, advice, happiness and inspire your soul. I usually listen to a YouTube video while I am making Charlotte (my adorable furrylicious pet) breakfast. While she is eating I sit in meditation, I usually spend time forgiving people and situations which allows me to feel lighter and more in the present moment. I then visualise my dream life and I get really into the feelings behind this imagery, I am left feeling blissful and hopeful that my dream life will come into reality. It is so important to do this! This time spent in meditation clearing, releasing, stilling the mind and slowing down allows you to feel more confident, driven and focussed.
You are the power and authority in your world. – Louise Hay
