I am learning to love.

To love myself, to love life, to love being alive, to love all of what I do (even the bits I don’t like doing), to love others, All, to love Love.

Yes, to love Love, because for some of us it’s such a vague concept that we are inclined unconsciously to reject it, and to not like it because we don’t even know what it is or how to ‘be’ with love. It’s uncomfortable and so we have to learn how to love Love.

Primarily it starts with me loving myself, or more precisely to learn about the Love that is already within me. As the truth is I already do love myself, but it’s just that due to early on circumstances and an old collective pattern of self-negative beliefs, I’ve had a very misguided sense of self-love. I treat myself the way I do out of a sense of protection and care, and that is love, whichever are the ways I turn to, to protect and soothe myself (I’ll say more about this in the future, I’m still processing).

So the truth is I already Love myself. In the way that I know how to today.

And that knowledge soothes me.

Softens me.

And when I feel soft, I breathe, I make space, I open and lay down the barriers a little bit. When I feel soft I reconcile with my femininity, my curves, my vulnerability, my true voluptuous intuitive feminine nature.And in the melting openness of softness I learn to Love. My heart feeling all raw and tender in the remembering … of Love.

It takes time, it’s a practice, a sacred practice of honoring Divine Love, the unconditional kind, the kind that unites us All, the kind that connects all Souls, the kind that never leaves us.

I am learning to love, the Divine Love within me.

Within us All.
This is Sacred Work, our work.

Let’s do this Sisters & Brothers, let’s heal this world with Love.

It Has To Be Me Fighting For Myself http://julielecarrer.com/2017/01/25/soulfighter/ http://julielecarrer.com/2017/01/25/soulfighter/#comments Wed, 25 Jan 2017 10:33:21 +0000 http://julielecarrer.com/?p=1535 Maybe it’s time I stopped waiting for or actually wanting for someone to fight for me.  I watch a lot of TV shows and movies and I’ve come to notice how when a character is passionate about someone else’s well being and will do anything for them it often makes me cry.

Maybe it’s time I stopped waiting for or actually wanting for someone to fight for me

I watch a lot of TV shows and movies and I’ve come to notice how when a character is passionate about someone else’s well being and will do anything for them it often makes me cry. Especially if it’s between a mom and her daughter (I am doing a second round of Gilmore Girls at the moment!).

And so I thought about it, and I know where it comes from, but going deeper I realized that I actually was still waiting for my mom or maybe a “mommy” figure to fight for me.

So that I feel important and worthy, loved and valued? Yes.

And not feeling these for myself means I end up hiding in shame, fear and insecurity, until someone, a “mommy” figure in shining armor comes and saves me from myself, fights for me and shows me and everyone else how truly precious I am.

But who’s going to fight for me today? Would I actually like that? And should there be anyone fighting for me and my life? 

Yes.

Me.

Ultimately it’s up to me.

I am the only one who can give myself a sense of worth and value, and ironically fighting for myself will empower me and help me feel this way about myself.

And the reason I cry when I see in a show a mom fighting for her kid is that it touches a deep yearning within me. The yearning for me to do that for myself.

Time to grow up my love.

So, I am gonna be brave.

Surrounded by my loving and caring friends, treating myself kindly and generously, being attentive to my wants and needs, I will free the me within that yearns to take charge, I will recognize my strength and I will do it. I do it for me and I fight for me and for my life, to live my life..

The life that I want for myself, as the person I know I truly am.

I am my own fighter.

And I think I might discover that I am quite a fierce one when it comes to fighting for me.

Let us all be fierce fighters for our Souls and Hearts Sisters.

The world needs us to be true to our innate Power.

With love x

I have a tendency to diminish my accomplishments, to feel like I am never doing enough, sometimes I feel like a loser, it seems like I can never live up to my high expectations!

I think many of us on this path experience this, we are very perfectionist, always looking for the next thing we can achieve, do better and do more, improve, improve, always improve! Yes I do want to always improve, but not as a condition of my worthiness.

We are so hard on ourselves.

But it doesn’t help our purpose and the truth is it feels really crappy. And I know I can dig an even deeper hole for myself when I compare with successful sisters and get stuck in smallness by feelings of envy and jealousy. I don’t want to keep myself small and stuck! I want to do what I came here to do feeling empowered and expansive.

So one morning I remember very clearly I woke up and I don’t recall why but I started to think of myself, twenty years ago. Of who I was then and what my hopes and dreams were for myself. And I started to see my present life through the eyes of my younger self, and, and… suddenly I got this wow sensation. Wow, I would have been impressed! Yes my younger self would be impressed with who I am today.

It’s true that in some areas of my life I am not where I thought I’d be now, or where I wanted to be now, and also, I could never have imagined or dreamed of the gifts that I find myself called to share and of the work I am doing!!

If I look at it all from my younger self, it feels like magic.

And how wonderful would it be if I, today could feel like my life was magic! I do have little instants when I feel the magic in my life but my insecurities, stories, patterns, etc. come in quick to bring me back to “safety”.

It’s OK, it’s the journey, the process, the path. Now that I have been aware of this for some time, and feeling into it, looking at it, and getting my younger’s self wisdom on it, I am ready to create new stories for myself, stories that will be the truth of who I am today, and stop living through stories that belong to a far away yesterday.

And in the process of transformation, when it’s tough to see the truth through the thickness of shadowy filters, I can channel my younger self’s beautiful spirit and ask her to remind me of what’s what, and could she please give me hug too?

Love & magic.

For me being on the conscious path means that my path is one of awareness and transformation.

It means that my whole life revolves around growth, self-development, healing, learning, stretching my limits, taking risks, expanding, doing what scares me, etc. Transformation is my bitch (I think it’s time to change the connotation of that word, don’t you?).

It’s what fuels my life, it’s who I am, it’s what I want and it’s my one and only pathway to Soul.

But fuck it’s messy!

I hate it so much at times, it makes me miserable, insecure, scared and even terrified. In this path of consciousness I perpetually question myself and my actions, I always want to do better, to surpass myself, which means doing new things all the time. Which means being crippled by doubt, fear, insecurity and hiding hours at a time in bed with comfort food and TV shows.

But yes there’s all of that and also … there’s the magic of suddenly realizing one day that I’ve changed and grown, there’s the magic of sharing my work and someone telling me I inspired them (that’s really big magic) there’s the magic of healing my old wounds and feeling love for myself for the first time, there’s the magic of doing something that scares me so much and afterwards getting that priceless feeling of … vibrant aliveness.

photo-email

Yet, when I am deep into my own struggle I forget why I am in it, I loose the big picture and it’s important then that I know and remember that this path is a messy one, that it can feel really shitty at times or that I’ll have no idea what I am doing, or that I’ll feel like I am going nowhere! Yes there will be days when things get super hard.

I am on a path of transformation, me feeling like shit will happen, is it normal.

So I can stop blaming myself for it, stop judging myself for it, and instead commit even deeper to my chosen path and keep going.

Keep going.

In Consciousness, in Love, for Transformation, for Essence.

Big bow to all of you Sisters out there who are on this path and huge gratitude because this is a path not to be taken alone, we need each other.

So much love to you and a big squeeze,

Julie

Hi beauty,

I am learning to let go of the need to control everything and mostly the belief that I can control everything. Rationally I know I can’t, but often I forget and run myself to the ground trying!

Especially when it comes to (unconsciously) wanting to control others…it’s exhausting, and the reality is I have no control over others and it’s none of my business. What’s my business, is me. And when I spend all my energy on others I don’t have any left for me, to take care of myself and my life.

So if I can’t control others or life, then I need to believe. I need to have faith that everyone’s choices, actions, sayings, etc., that any of life circumstances and events are for the best; even if at times it seems like it’s completely crazy or unfair! I need to have faith. To have faith in others and in life so I can focus on my part.

“I need to have faith in others and in life, so I can focus on my part.”

What can I do for my life? What is in my hands? What’s truly up to me? What’s left when I don’t try to control every outcome possible?

And what can help me believe?

Experience and faith.

Experience. When I look back at my life I see how life has taken care of me in many many situations, life intervenes on things that are out of my control: a solution arises from the most unexpected places or persons, out of the blue I receive a life changing gift, or a life changing opportunity arises.

Faith. And then from that experience I learn to have faith that life will keep on being there for me, I have faith that I am not alone on this journey, that I am guided, that I am supported and loved.

A recent experience that nourishes my faith is of being invited to perform on stage last month! Being on stage is a dream of mine, I had it down in my ‘goals’ for 2016, but I hadn’t got around to making it happen yet, I thought it was maybe too soon, I was focusing on other projects, I was too scared, it felt out of reach, etc.

But then life showed me otherwise.

And reminded me so generously to BELIEVE.

Thank you LIFE.

Finally…

We have 4 months until the end of the year, wonder what life has in store for us? And what can we do on our side to participate  in the game as fully as we are able to?

And also let’s remember how powerful, resourceful and amazing we are!

So much love to you,

Julie

It’s funny how life happens, the unexpected happenings of life. No matter how much we might feel in control, life is always there to remind us that we’re not, really, in control, not of it all anyway, and it could be that it is her way of inviting us to relax and let go and just focus on what we can change.

I’ve been silent for a while because unexpectedly I had to take a break to go deep within and do some much needed inner little girl wound healing work. It wasn’t my plan, at that time all my focus was on setting off my business. But it felt right and mostly important for my life and subsequently for my business to take some time for this.

Now I am still doing the healing work but at a less intense level and it feels right to put some focus back on my business again. Creating and expressing myself makes me feel so good and brings so much life into me.

I started monthly online group sessions called “Return to Yourself” and I got inspired to make the video on that theme. I hope you enjoy it.

I am not sure that I will be back here weekly yet, the emotional work I am doing can be quite overwhelming and so I am being gentle with myself and listening as best as I can to respect my inner rhythm day by day. In truth I am not always good at it as just last week I went too far and got so overloaded and overwhelmed that I had to stop everything!

Lessons are being learned, layers are being worked on and healed, life is happening and I want to be living it all as Myself.

With so much love!

Hi my friend,

How is it going for you with the end of the year approaching, the Holidays, Christmas, New Year…!

Do you feel …

Relieved? Relieved the year is finally over and you can start over soon and create a clean slate.
Pressure? Pressure to do better or more or different next year.
Satisfied? Satisfied with what you achieved, having reached your goals and more.
Ready? Ready to say goodbye to this year and to welcome the next!

Personally I’d say I feel all of that, though the relief for me is more about breathing a bit, breathing in the new space I’ve created for myself this past year, breathing into the new parts of myself that were revealed to me and that for some I still need to adjust to, make some space for them and fully embrace them.

With the year drawing to a close, I need to be in my own presence, fully. I need to experience myself and my new parts fully. I need to retreat within and feel the powerful silence of my own essence.

Breathe.

Feel.

Be.

PRESENCE.

And yes that’s what I am really about, Presence. I love nothing more that to be in that space when I allow whatever is there in the moment to emerge, whether in movement, words, dance, a song or a drawing.

When I am in the full Radical Expression of Presence I feel vibrant, alive, connected, excited, moved and humbled. I don’t really know what happens, what comes and goes through me, what shifts within and outside of me.

I just know that it is my place and I am home.

The expression of PRESENCE is all I am about.

I wonder what does Presence feel to you. Do feel your own palpable Presence? How do you express or experience it?

For me Radical Presence means being Present with all that is, being grounded on the Earth and connected to the Universe. Being present with the Wind whispering its swirling wisdom within me and the Forest sharing its deep secrets with my Soul. Being present with the River flowing with sensual lyrics through my veins and the Sun’s fire alighting all of my senses.

With Presence the birds fly through us, the stars shine within us, all is whole and all is One. In Presence.

♥

With the end of the year approaching, whether you’re celebrating, mourning, at peace or at war with yourself and the world, I invite you to step into Presence. To be aware of being a Presence on this Earth, to be aware of where you physically end and begin and where you merge with all that is, with Energy.

♥

I have a big dream of being Radically Present on stage. And I dream that by being Radically Present on stage I can create a space for the people watching to experience their own palpable presence and experience themselves deeply.

I am not sure yet what this will look like and I’ve been super scared to express this dream publicly and to start showing up in alignement with it. But this is what the end of this year is all about for me (I am realizing this as I am writing :)).

Breathing and making space for my Presence to be revealed and expressed and prepare myself to gather up the courage and strength to share it not just in videos but live in front of an audience (scary crazy stage fright!!!) and be fully me. Yay! (self support, haha)

Presence is to be experience for ourselves and to be shared. In true presence with each other we allow for Love to flow, we create Peace.

♥
For this week video I imagined I was on stage in my own living room and that you were the audience watching. I am performing Radical Presence for you with Movement in Presence. And I hope watching the video brings you an experience of your own palpable presence. With love. (Let me know :)).

In Presence I love, I love your Presence, your Presence loves you.

With love,
Julie

Hey fellow Soul,

How are you?

Whatever the circumstances and no matter how scary things can get for us mortal humans, the Soul, my Soul, your Soul, all Souls are eternal and ALWAYS safe.

Being French and living in Brussels, realizing (remembering) this helped me profoundly these past couple of weeks. To move past the fear again and again and find my way back into a place of love, compassion and unity.

I was also helped and inspired by this enlightened article by Nicolya Christi.

♥
I will leave you on this short note with a video that I hope can help to reconnect, remember, feel, that wherever we are, whatever our circumstances, we are a Soul first, and as such we are always safe.

Keep safe darling Soul.

With love,
Julie

Hi beautiful,

We could talk about self-care in many ways.

For one self-care is a subject that is not easy for me. I guess that not being taken care of, very well as a kid means that I wasn’t going to become a very good self-caring adult. For the longest time I didn’t even know I wasn’t taking care of myself.

So how was I not taking care of myself?

For me a ‘hard’ life was the norm (this is something I realized recently). So I was not taking care of myself by staying in the comfort zone of ‘hard’ and creating a hard and difficult life for myself.
I was obviously unaware of this but, could we argue that at some level I was taking care of myself by keeping myself safe in the ‘known’ (hard life)?
I’d say yes, that we could, only at that ‘unaware’ level. Because I sure wasn’t happy, even miserable a lot of the time.

So going in that direction we could say that there are two levels of self-care:

  • The ‘unaware’ level (upbringing, programmed)
  • The ‘aware’ level (recognized, chosen)

You can be both unaware of not self-caring as well as of  self-caring. We do lots of self-care stuff without being aware of it. Because for us it’s normal stuff that we do. But isn’t it delicious when you learn new ways of bringing sweet self-care to yourself. Or like me when you actually start to care for yourself, period.

And once you become aware you start recognizing these times you do take care of yourself (and it’s wonderful!) and the times you do not.

And we are not to feel bad about not taking care of ourselves because in itself that’s added non self-care. We need to be there for ourselves with love and support when we are recognizing that we have not been really self-caring for a long time or in specific areas of our lives. It’s actually quite sad and painful when you become aware of a new way in which you haven’t been taking very good care of yourself. So let’s be gentle. And that will give us the space to also appreciate that this means we’re ready to make a change for the better – for ourselves.

Can you look in your life at how you bring self-care to yourself and where you don’t? And before looking at the ways you don’t, can you prepare a big open heart at the ready with much love to give to these parts of yourself that have yet to learn how to receive it – from you?

 

 

I love this and I will do the same, like I said at the beginning I have not been very good at self-caring, it’s changing, I am becoming more and more aware, and bringing self-care to myself one dose of self-love at a time.

♥
