Lessons Learned and Positive Vibrations

Living, learning, evolving and doing it all as positive as one possibly can…


Be You and Smile!

First things first:

Give thanks for the amazing gifts that come to us throughout the day.

Ok, now that’s done!

I’m so incredibly grateful, for the big things, the small things, the minute things and everything in between. It’s wonderful how things are coming together. Allowing my spirit and my body to take over instead of constantly thinking about things is so much easier than using my head all the time. Living simplistically is becoming more natural and it’s a brilliant feeling. I’m noticing more. Loving more. Feeling happy more and seeing that those around me are attracted to that more. People smile more when you smile more! As obvious as that sounds, how many of us use that as an every day practice or as a tool to improve their day?

Colours are brighter, the sun is more shiny, the world is that much more awesome!

Life is such an amazing gift. Simply smile and let your body and your spirit be your guide and things magically get better!

Sending love and light to you, you and you!

Ask yourself… What else is possible?

“Close your eyes and jump. Enjoy the freefall. Choose exhilaration over comfort. Magic over predictability. Potential over safety. Be bold. Be fierce. Be grateful, wild, crazy and gloriously free. Be you.”

Says it all really!

“Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you – all of the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are.” – Rachel Naomi Remen

Wouldn’t life be a little lighter, a little brighter and a little easier without expectations, beliefs and standards to live up to? Life gets lighter still with healing… Here’s to lighter, brighter lives!


Letting go and moving forward…

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted here on Lessons Learned and it’s been nothing short of mind-blowing!

Since arriving back in Canada a month ago I’ve learnt a lesson pretty much every day. From healing personal issues right the way down to deciding to take my business into my own hands. I must say it’s been one of the busiest months ever! Let me start at the beginning.
They say you can’t run from your demons and I believe that to be true. I wouldn’t have said that trotting around the globe, following my dreams of travel and pushing my photographic passion was running away from anything until I came back and was knocked sideways by all of the feelings I left when I departed 3 years ago. I only saw that it was running when I returned and immediately wanted to flee again. Upon this huge realisation I decided to face it all and stay for as long as I needed to.
It is certainly not easy to face your inner darkness but in order to let go and move forward with balance and peace, it’s one of, if not the most important thing you can do for yourself. I’m not finished either. The more stones you turn over, the more stones you find underneath. But I will say one thing; with practice, it definitely becomes easier.
There are a few things that have helped me through this process: Exercise, especially exercising in nature, yoga, eating nourishing foods, focusing on my goals, surrounding myself with open minded people who love me, being around people I laugh with, and energy work. Lots and lots of energy work. Also, not forgetting quite a bit of quiet time, most importantly being honest with myself and allowing myself to be vulnerable and open to the process of healing. This sounds like a lot but it’s not, it just takes practice, dedication and awareness.
As the past month has gone by I’ve found myself being more balanced and having a sense of peace. Knowing that I am capable of doing whatever my mind can dream up and that the possibilities are endless.
I have a few projects underway now. My photography first and foremost. I am determined to make the most of my travels and all of the film negatives I came back with! That project has grown from a photography exhibition (which is in the works and coming soon) to starting my own business and exploring how I can work with youth and help them to learn about photography and explore their creativity.
I’m also learning how to use social networking sites to help me to promote myself and my business which is new territory for me since I’ve been resisting that for the longest time.
Since doing lots of energy work, from meditation, yoga, to Access Consciousness, I’ve taken a great interest in healing and I’m looking into where I can help others. Once given a gift I feel that it must be paid forward.
I am constantly learning, growing and reaching higher and higher. Always asking myself ‘what else is possible?’ and ‘can it get any better than this?!’. The most beautiful thing about it is the more I open myself up, the more wonderful opportunities present themselves to me.
This is truly an amazingly awesome time of change.
I want to end this post with a question to you. What else is possible?
Sending you all love and light.

“Instead of having a breakdown, I’m focusing on having a breakthrough.” – Terrell Owens

There are times when we feel like everything is about to fall apart. I’ve come to learn that this feeling, the feeling of a breakdown is the moment before a breakthrough. This is something to remember when things look the most bleak, something amazing is on its way.
