Why is this happening?

Ever had that feeling of being overwhelmed with everything life is throwing at you? Makes you feel out of balance, doesn't it? YUP, happened to me recently. I started off 2014 with a bang. My goal was to just follow what my business was giving me and run with it. Well, I jumped right in. Spent endless nights on my blog page getting it looking pretty and as organized as possible. I was getting a ton of phone calls to book appointments, my email was filled with endless question for Ask Your Angels. WOW, amazing! This is what I envisioned and worked so hard the last few months building!!!

Well, the excitement was short lived. I had come home, in the door I immediately feel like I'm quickly spiking a fever. WHAT?? I don't have time for this! I have 3 kids, involved in all sort of activities. A husband who travels for work that night and I had work things to accomplish. I took some Motrin and still hours later i have the chills. I sleep horrible that night, Up sweating, chills, sweating chills! NOOO!

Ok, it's now time to find out the real reason of what's going on. I do what we all should do and I journal with my angels. What's the meaning of this? What am I blocking? Why is my throat swelling up out of nowhere? WHY WHY WHY?

As always, they have the answers. I'm out of BALANCE. I'm working to hard too fast. I'm focusing on one thing but still trying to keep everything else in balance. It's doesn't work that way. We can't take our complete focus on ONE thing in our life and expect everything else to just happen. Well, what do I do about it? I need to spend some me time, time on the kids and of course a date night with my husband. Good Luck finding time for all that. The way our crazy family schedule is, it's hard to make it happen. My angels informed me I will not get better till I make time for that.

Stop Trying To Control

 

 

So, I woke up this morning with the worst headache I have had in a long time. It’s one of those headaches where you feel nauseous and any sort of light makes you squint. Well, of course it was a school morning and thank goodness my husband was going into work a bit late to be able to bring our oldest to school. Still, I have 2 little one home with me. Yes, I’m a Mom so life goes on. I immediately start thinking “oh no, we are getting ready for camping trip with so much to do, I have to squeeze in my yoga class tonight, home work with my daughter and all the packing” OK OK deep breath! I decided to take some Tylenol and rest, the best a Mom with 2 little ones can do (I know a lot of you can relate). So, I spent an hour dozing on and off. Finally, I got up and felt as if I could finally function and drink my coffee. Still feeling a little off with the headache lingering but life needed to go on for the day.

I’m not a headache person at all. Sure, I get them when I haven’t had enough to drink or eat too much of salty food but this was different. It felt as if energetically something was off for me. TIME TO ASK MY ANGELS! I sat down and asked them what was going on? What am I missing as to why this happened? Why is this not a “normal” headache? Well as usual they pull thru with some advice.

Just about a year ago I started this Spiritually journey that has proved to me so unbelievably amazing for me. The OLD me when faced with a challenging situation would immediately panic and feel sorry for myself, go into a “cocoon” (as my husband would say) and feel as tho my life is falling apart at the seams. I would take total control with what the situation had brought and was continuing to bring. That’s a tough place to be!

The NEW me when faced with the situation, take a deep breath feels the emotions and stands back and find the positive in it. The emotions don’t hurt nearly as much and I’m able to overcome it a lot better.

So, back to my angels. I have been extremely proud of how far I have come and I hear it all the time from the people close to me. Why the headaches then…in the quote of my angels today. “The less we control a situation and let it be the better the outcome”. OK, wow so what I’m doing in situations is not feeling the emotions nearly has much BUT instead control it in my head. I thought that was one in the same but I’m realizing it’s not.

I love doing what I do, it’s not about getting to the place of “better” as fast as you can, it’s about learning all there is to know on the way there. I know I will always continue to grow and have lessons thrown at me. It’s all about taking the lesson, learning what you need to know to be able to move to the next level.

 

The Cloud 9 Feeling

 

Ok, Ok, Ok, here it is….My First Official Blog Post. This required a lot for to me to do. Yup, that’s right, I have emerged out of my comfort zone. I’m putting myself out there and making myself know. I know there will be some grammar mistakes and punctuation error, but guess what…I’m not perfect. SO enjoy this post and all of it’s imperfections. WARNING: You will hear the words Comfort Zone very often throughout this post.

Coming out of my comfort zone is a huge deal for me. My whole life I have been staying with what is comfortable. I kept myself surrounded by people and things that kept me comfortable. If I was to be challenged on anything, I would crumble and stay in the shell in my comfort zone.

One thing that sticks in my head is when I would need to recetify my EMT Card. I need to take a 24 hour refresher every 2 years along with other credits, but the refresher was a BIG deal to me. Since I had kids I was not able to work the crazy schedule that comes along with the job, therefore I didn’t have an easy way to just grab a class that was offered by a place of employment. This required me reaching out to people in the field and being set up with a course at a place I would be unfamiliar with. WHOA, this is a major issue….I would be out of my comfort zone!!!! Well, each and every time after stressing for 2 years about the when, how, where. I would walk out with my head held high and feeling a great accomplishment.

You know that feeling where you just feel so good and on cloud 9 after accomplishing something?!?! I know each and every one of you have. That is the feeling of coming out of your comfort zone. We get reminded of that often, but we somehow manage to fall back into the trap of comfort….We are only human, it’s normal. Imagine having that feeling every day, being on cloud 9, having that excited feeling day in and day out. WOW, I can’t believe that is now where I am finally at. Do I still worry before approaching something that is out of my comfort zone? YUP!!!! Do I still worry what people will think? YUP!!! Well, let me be honest, I would love to elaborate about the “caring what others think block” that I have moved thru BUT that deserves it’s OWN post as it’s an major accomplishment.

Back to Comfort Zone talk. How did I move thru this block that has held me back my whole life from achieving what I want? I just jumped in and started doing this. I wasn’t 100% sure about it but willing to take the risk, each and every time I had the good and being on cloud 9 feeling. Now, I can’t imagine not taking those chances and being where I was a couple months ago.

Here is what I want from you. I want to hear your story. I want to be flooded with emails about who has come out of their comfort zone….Who wants to come out of the zone but is afraid to. I want to pass along what I have learned and help you experience that cloud 9 feeling more often. For everyone who shares their story with me, I have a gift for you. <3
