At the moment I run my own online business as a soul coach, running online yoga classes and I just wrote and published my first book.
Everything I'm doing is with the intention to create a sacred space for healing and thriving, everything is created with that mission so we can do our souls work to live our best lives here on earth.
Growing up I felt an enormous amount of pressure to achieve a lot of things. I think it was a lot of pressure that I put on myself but also external things that made me feel like I had to be the best at everything which led to some amazing opportunities, however, no matter how my life looked from the outside looking in, I just felt unfilled.
I felt like there was always something I had to consistently race against time. There weren't a lot of moments I really slowed down and enjoyed.
I was an accountant for almost eight years and on the side, I was doing yoga teaching and coaching and last year I got to my breaking point where I decided enough was enough. I didn't want to continue in my 9-5 in an accounting firm, so I quit everything.
I was lucky enough to have the support of my family to really rebuild my life into something that feels aligned and from my soul.
Gentle healing, thriving and doing your souls work
When I talk about being gentle it's about letting go of force.
When we feel like we're forcing things, that is the first sign that we're doing something that is out of alignment and that it's not something our inner light really wants us to be doing. Challenges might come up when we're doing our soul work but you will still feel aligned and as if you're taking action.
If something is not aligned it will just constantly feel like a struggle and so to be gentle is to release the force and focus on taking aligned action instead.
Our life doesn't change in big leaps, it changes in small consistent steps.
When we take the little gentle actions it will always feel good, even if it's a little bit challenging, we're just moving forward through action.
Don't get overwhelmed by the bigger picture, break your goals or your dreams down into small consistent steps.
Sometimes we future trip so badly that we look at this thing that we want so badly and think we have no idea how to achieve it, but we don't need to know-how. We just have to keep moving forward taking one action step at a time.
The present moment is all there is.
We have everything we need to move through the moment we're in, we only become undone when we think too far ahead.
Everything you need is within you.
Actionable steps to move through low self-esteem or lack of confidence
All you have to do is jump on social media to see there are people struggling with low self-esteem and lack of confidence and this happens when we're not connected to our inner light or our soul. This is what I love about yoga is that it's the union of the mind, body and soul.
Sometimes we give too much energy to our body or to our mind but when we create that union we're able to see how powerful we truly are. When we tune into that power and we're doing the purpose of our soul there's no reason to ever not feel confident.
The action to tune into that power is understanding that every single belief that we have, we choose to believe it and so being considerate of the things you tell yourself.
