SOUL SCHOOL with Audrey

Although we can learn tactics for building self-love, sometimes we get stuck of how to actually put these tools into practice. It’s tough to rewire our brain patterns. This week’s mantra is when you get into conflict with yourself, ask: “what would someone who truly loved themselves do?” to help you shift out of your head and into your heart. www.AudreySuttonMills.co,

SOUL SCHOOL with Audrey

Shadows are a dark part of our personality that we often want to hide because it brings us shame. One tool is to give the shadow a personal name to help ease the self-inquiry process and help you stay open to learning about yourself so you can let go of judgment and be there for yourself to learn the lesson. Only when we can be with our uncomfortable feelings, then we can learn from them what they are trying to show us.

SOUL SCHOOL with Audrey

You have learned beliefs and patterns that you bring into your relationships with each other and yourself. Nothing is new. As children we’re very good at being in tune with our environment and very good at protecting ourselves to feel safe. Even if you had a good childhood, you learned ways of how to act by watching your caregivers, parents, siblings, cousins and their behaviors, beliefs and expectations. Reparenting is the act of giving yourself what you needed as a child.

SOUL SCHOOL with Audrey

You don’t have to fix yourself You’re not broken. By feeling your feelings, you return to your wholeness. If you’re constantly fixing, numbing and ignoring in order to be happy, you will always be chasing this destination. Happiness is fleeting – just like any other emotion. By honoring Life’s ups and downs, being with yourself and feeling your feelings fully, you’ll be able to find happiness in the process, build worthiness in your new skills, and trust your resilience that you are brave, matur

SOUL SCHOOL with Audrey

The way we would talk to a child is so much different than we talk to our adult self. We’re harsh, judgmental and critical, but you would never be like that to a sweet young child. By connecting to the sweet little girl or boy in you, it’s easier to be kinder and softer to yourself. Creating a practice of self-forgiveness is one way you can begin to deepen your compassion towards yourself and expand your self-love. LMK if this is helpful: www.AudreySuttonMills.com.

Last week the mantra Monday’s intention was to be aware of when you self-sabotage.

This week’s intention is to learn from resistance.

Why do we resist what we know will help us?

For example, you know eating healthy and moving your body is good for you, physically, mentally and emotionally, but you’re in resistance to something that will benefit you.

In my soul school online course, a few of the women shared that they loved each week’s coursework, but they were resistant to watching the next week’s course and doing the work. They know how it was benefitting their lives, they were feeling more confident, positive and loving towards themselves, so why after a few weeks, were they resistant to something that made them feel good about themselves?

We all resist what we know is good for us, because change is hard.

That comfortable path is well worn and easy, even if we don’t want to be on that path.

Progress is messy and uncomfortable.

It’s going to take effort and time to create a new path. That’s why we’re in resistance.

We fight it because our Nervous system is dysregulated and overwhelmed. We’re not used to being balanced. We’re used to feeling stress, overwhelmed, busy. A stressed system is what it’s used to, that’s why change is so hard.

So, when we feel overwhelmed in our body, mind and spirit, this turns into resistance to change and transformation.

But what if resistance is a clue that you’re on the brink of a breakthrough?

Like you’ve been climbing through a forest and you’re about to quit. It’s hard and challenging, but what if there was a sign that said, “hey you, just around the corner you’re gonna see the most amazing view!

Would you keep going?

Resistance is that sign, momma!

This week’s mantra is: “I’m in resistance because I’m about to transform.

When you start to feel overwhelmed and are in resistance:

  1. place your hands on your body that feel tight or need loving energy.
  2. Take 3 deep belly breaths to help you drop out of your mind and into your body.
  3. Identify resistance in your thoughts and agitation in your body.
  4. HONOR YOUR BODY through POWER OF CHOICE. Our triggers and old reactions don’t go away.

But the more you practice, you will build your awareness muscle and will begin to regulate your nervous system.

 

The more you practice sitting at the edge of resistance, being with it instead of running away from it and learning from it and listening for the next steps, the more confident and trusting you will get in your ability to move through it.
