I admit that the noise of social media has dragged me down this year.⠀ ⠀ So much so that I'm re-evaluating how I participate in the noise myself and am making changes to my strategies for 2020.⠀ ⠀ Social Media provides so many brilliant, wonderful and incredible opportunities. It forges new friendships and helps you share your gifts with the world.⠀ ⠀ But it can also be a massive distraction, and can pressure you to follow a path not meant for you.⠀ ⠀ So this healing shift is to remember who you are.⠀ ⠀ Block out the noise for an hour, a day, a week, and take some time to think about what's really important to you, what you love to do, why you love it, who you truly want to serve.⠀ ⠀ Think about what brings you joy, uncover the very soul of yourself.⠀ ⠀ Breathe.⠀ ⠀ Remember who you are.⠀ ⠀ Practice keeping this knowing close by at all times, and use it as your filter.⠀ ⠀ Allow it to help you make decisions about what you do and how you it.⠀ ⠀ When was the last time you took a proper break to remember who you are? ⠀ ⠀ If you've resonated with this, please tag a friend or share the post to pay it forward 🙌🏻⠀ ⠀ #12healingshifts #claritycoach

I've been full-steam-ahead for as long as I can remember, and recently realised it's because I've told myself I'm unworthy of success.⠀ ⠀ For years I've pushed myself, often beyond my limits, working incredibly hard to prove I deserve, and have earned, success.⠀ ⠀ Success has always felt like something I couldn't achieve peacefully, by stilling myself and allowing opportunities to flow. ⠀ ⠀ I've slogged my guts out, running a million miles an hour, changing who I am and what I do to please others, all in my never ending quest to prove I deserve success.⠀ ⠀ The irony is, when I've achieved success I've been running so fast I haven't recognised it, haven't cherished it, and I've thrown it away.⠀ ⠀ I've been a fool. But I've forgiven myself.⠀ ⠀ I'm working on healing myself, and in doing so I'm slowing everything right down.⠀ ⠀ I'm feeling more peaceful, I'm recognising what I've achieved.⠀ ⠀ Calming the waters is helping opportunities flow to me, and I now see them clearly.⠀ ⠀ If you're letting success pass you by, would slowing down heal you and open you up to receive? ⠀ ⠀ If you've resonated with this, please tag a friend or share the post to pay it forward 🙌🏻⠀ ⠀ #12healingshifts #claritycoach

To the Mumma out there with tears in her eyes. I see you. . To the Mumma out there who is struggling with the overwhelm. I feel you. . To the Mumma out there who is holding on by a thread. I got you. . To the Mumma out there who who doesn't think she can go on. Or doesn't want to. We got this. . To the Mumma out there who feels like she is drowning in life. It's OK. . Take a minute. Breathe. You are doing the best you can. It is hard. It is meant to be. You are not alone. We don't all have our shit together. . Today for me is one of those days. We are in a world of chaos. Everyday there has been something on. Late nights. Tired kids. Tired Mumma. No clean washing. Today we couldn't find shoes. Socks. Drink bottles. Were late to school. Rushing to make lunch. The toddler has thrown watermelon & ice up & down the hall way, & drawn on the bed with texta while the rest of us scrambled around (actually only I did the scrambling while I yelled to them to help me, They sat around or did anything else to not). Feeling torn between going inside & sorting it all, or racing to the shops to organise the Kris kringle gifts we need for this weekend - 2 family Xmas parties on 2 days. After school is creche Christmas party & the extremely tired toddler needs to fit a sleep in there also. . I'm not sharing this for sympathy or because I need someone to fix it. I share so that some other Mumma who feels like this may feel like she is not alone. She is seen. I am holding space. It is hard. It is isolating. It is so lonely sometimes. You feel like the weight of it all is entirely on your shoulders. It sucks, it feels unfair, you feel pulled in a million directions. I. See. You 🖤

I was blinded by my need to be loved. I so desperately desired their approval that I could see just how far gone I was. I found myself wear a mask. I found myself pretending I had it all together (all the time). I found myself overcompensating with a ‘I’m fine’ and ‘I’m good’ mantra leading the charge. Yet... I wasn’t fine at all. I remember the moment this lightbulb went off in my head... I was standing in a room full of people. In the center to be exact, playing the roll of the life of the party, having one too many drinks so that I could fit in and feel like I belonged. I just creaked some inappropriate joke when I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror just to the right of me. I froze. Who the heck was this girl staring back at me? Everyone around me was laughing having a great time, and yet regardless of my outside persona I felt so alone. In that brief moment seeing my reflection I realized Not one person in that room knew me. Not one of them knew how much I struggled to feel worthy of belonging. Not one of them knew i was wearing a mask out of desperation for their attention. Not one of them knew how miserable I was. Immediately after seeing that flash of truth in the mirror, I left the party never willing to allow ‘that girl’ to be seen of again. The change didn’t happen over night , I lost friends as a result of the change and began a long inner battle for my worth that ultimately I won. If I would have known then what I know now, man-O-man. I would have started those friendships standing in my power vs giving my power away. I would have connect from a place of purposeful alignment vs feeling less than. I would have passionately shared the true me, wants & desires vs the version I thought they wanted me to be. The key ingredients... Purpose, passion and power. If this is something you resonate with a little too much the I invite you to join us in creating a 2020 Vision anchored in the TRUE YOU. @jillianbolanz and I are hosting a 3-day Live event in our FREE FB group Rebels For Joy and your invited. I’ll put all the details in my BiO for you to keep it simple. Together let’s make 2020 the year YOU rise.

Over the coming 12 days, I'm going to share with you some wonderful shifts you can make for healing.⠀ ⠀ I've learned powerful lessons about healing over the past few years, and I'm working on and through these shifts myself.⠀ ⠀ I'm sharing these healing shifts with you for two reasons:⠀ ⠀ ⭐️Making these shifts will benefit every aspect of your life - they'll unleash your true potential, increase your ability to give and receive, and create more ease, joy and freedom.⠀ ⠀ ⭐️These are shifts I guide my clients through, both in my one-to-one coaching and throughout my group coaching programme, Your Business Playbook - so I wanted to share them with you too. ⠀ ⠀ I hope you find my healing shifts inspiring, motivating and that they open your heart to the wondrous power and possibility that lies within you.⠀ ⠀ I'd love to hear how you receive and experience this gift of healing.⠀ ⠀ Sally xo

~Today is the day~ . I have woken up with the mentality that has started to rule my life of late. Want to know what that thought is? "what's the point"! "what's the point of cleaning & sorting out our chaos when I don't even know where to begin? ". "what's the point of tidying the mess when they will just mess it up? ". "What's the point of learning to cook some new, healthier, wholesome meals when they won't eat it anyway?" can you see how I have completely set myself up for failure by listening to that one thought?! "What's the point"?! I am tired, burnt out, mentally drained & it shows. I am hanging for the end of the year as I have been banking on that to be some sort of saving grace. Like it is some magical period that will afford me all the time I need to recover & get my life in order. Reality check: it will mean 6 weeks of holidays including the silly season where I will have all 3 kids on school holidays. I will become the full time carer with no reprieve & a million snacks per day. It is not going to be what I have been imagining it to be lol. Plus I will want to spend some time & enjoy them while they are home before the rush of the new year begins. So today I have decided enough is enough & I am going to stop listening to that thought. There Is a point. The only way I am going to fix the mess I am currently in is by choosing a new, healthier one. Just start & get it done. So here I am, sorting some of the chaos. Tackling the tasks I am constantly avoiding. Working on my thoughts. Choosing more Empowering ones. So if you are like me & feeling the end of year mental load. What are you doing to shift it?

We all know the safety, comfort and peace of being with someone who allows you to be completely at ease, completely yourself. Think about that person or people in your life for a minute. What do you notice about them? What is it that creates this safe space for you? Is it their unconditional love? Is it the lack of judgement? Or is it that they model what it is like to just be yourself? To not pretend or hold back? We are part of a huge ripple effect - would you give yourself permission to do this more if you knew it meant you gave others the same?

🐍 You know what’s been really grinding my GEARS lately. This. Instagram. Currently reassessing this relationship. On one hand, it’s a magical tool that expands my community, my own healing, my toolbox of resources for my clients, it allows me to express my creativity and share insights that have helped me in the hopes of helping others - and on the other hand.... . It’s a platform that encourages self expression while also fuelling our insecurities, the “image” we want to show the world, comparisons amongst one another, a “need” for approval/validation in numbers, and a strange hunger for algorithmic favouritism if we play by the rules. Things I’ve been asking myself: . • How can I be *truly* authentic on this bizarre and ever-evolving platform? . • Why do I feel the need to filter my personality and only express one slice of myself, to uphold some sort of “healer/therapist image”? . • Do I have an aesthetic? Why? How can I balance my artistic expression and my authentic self. And why has aesthetic been trumping reality? . • Why does it bother me when I see what I perceive to be inauthentic, cookie cutter and curated accounts? I’ve been dancing with these thoughts a lot lately, and as shadow work will have us realize - our judgements of others are reflections of ourselves - always. Seeing inauthenticity triggers me because although I believe in every word I’ve shared, I have also been filtering myself to fit in a sort of “healer” box. And that shit really isn’t working for me anymore. We’ll see how this evolves... but for now, let’s all Cut The Bullshit a little more than we have been. Thanks friends, for hanging out with me in this virtual world of avatars - for inspiring me, and evolving alongside me in your own unique ways. & thank you @slowdogdesigns for consistently supplying me with my favourite softies.

➵ DARE TO LIVE FULLY ➵ My challenge to you this week... is to get brave. To live courageously enough to risk your heart + with it the experience of living full out. ————————————————————- If you’ve been hurt, rejected, misunderstood, left, bullied, you might have made the decision to protect yourself from future hurt. To close your heart, run away when it gets difficult, pick up the armour + attack, to look for the perfect situation (or perfect person) where you will be “safe”, + shrink to fit in or put off your dreams (I’m doing you a video on this tomorrow to help you with this 👆🏻) ———————————————————— When we risk opening our hearts: telling people how we really feel, revealing our softer sides, asking for what we most want + need, sharing our passions, views, messages + gifts with the world in a way only we can. Yes, we risk rejection, ridicule, criticism but the other truth is... . ✨ unless you are prepared to risk your heart you will never really know whether something was meant for you✨ ✨ without failure you will never really know resilience ✨ ✨ if you aren’t being authentic you will never know the joy of people loving the real you ✨ ✨ you deny yourself + others the ability to fully know you + benefit from your skills, experience + wisdom ✨ ✨ you miss out on the growth journey to become more, to stretch beyond fear + experience the joy of elevation ✨ . This week. Drop the mask (in whatever way you’ve been dimming your light) More in stories 👆🏻 You’ve got this. I will check in on you mid-week. I’m here for you. Ismene ♡

Good morning And happy December Saturday! Any big holiday plans? I freaking love this month! Being a very extroverted person, I love the parties, friends, gatherings, events, Santa photos, mall shopping etc because they all fill my cup... but not always my spouses. It’s easy to judge each other for having very differencing options on how your weekends should unfold. Knowing this about our partnership, here is what I’ve learned: 1. Not wrong, just different This #mindshift is a game changer! It requires empathy, understanding and respect of the others needs/wants/desires. 2. Triple AAA Aware + Advocate + Allow It is essential that you are aware of YOUR needs, wants and desires. This allows open communication to ASK for and advocate for your joy! Finally, allow; allow space and time for both parties to fill their emotional cups! These 2 things have shifted the way I think, communicate and behave as a partner which allows me to ENJOY the things that bring me JOY! Happy December my friend! Let me know if you need any support finding your joy this season.

I think this is a common thing with people on the spectrum like me, we are "so called" high functioning we mask well, we blend in just enough but it isnt really us, so maybe that's why while I make friends I'm more invested then they are? Because I know how much life draining energy it's taking me. Recently I went to a funeral with my mom, and it was very, very draining, these people are my family but live pretty far away and the one I watch on YouTube an is so talented I was almost star struck by my own cousin, but I really wanted that family connection somehow I missed it, and they are wonderful people, it just isnt there or I cant grasp it. I have people who love me, this isn't to say feel sorry for me, my Mom, Sister and Brother and GF know me, really know me, and 95% of the time there is no question of that, they are just as invested, but I often wonder if that's it, or if there was a way to get neurotypicals to understand we feel this way, to get them to realize we are making an effort without it being one they understand and that they themselves need to try and keep trying, this Christmas I dont want any of us on the spectrum to feel like this, so if there is someone on the spectrum in your life an you love them, care about them, maybe you make the effort to see how hard they are trying to just exsist in your world. #merrychristmasfromthespectrum #autism #autismlife #aspiesrule #aspies #aspergerssyndrome #aspergers #autismismysuperpower #autismiseverywhere #autismacceptance #autisminclusion #asd #autismfamily #motherofthesedragons #begoodtopeople #bekind #dropthemask #autismadvovate #actualaspie #stepoutsideyourcomfortzoneangiveadamn

Reading anything good lately? Or listening 🤪 I found that having a 14-month old makes it a bit more challenging to read, however I do still make time for it. All month I have been talking about the importance of self care (especially during the holidays) This season elect to find Joy, happiness and fulfillment by connecting to and honoring your needs. If cooking brings you joy - Do it! If hosting does not - Don’t. If lights bring you joy - hang them! If decorating does not - don’t. Forget the expectations and obligations and choose joy because you matter! If you need support, don’t hesitate to ask.
