If you’re struggling with self confidence then you likely don’t even know what YOUR magic is.
You likely see magic everywhere around you in all others accept for yourself.
You maybe have a few moments where you see your own light shine through but you feel it getting dimmed immediately by your self consciousness.
So how to turn your magic up?
start practicing self awareness
write down how you wish you were
start paying attention to the moments in your life where you are how you wish you were
give yourself a pad on the back of you catch yourself being awesome
become aware of yourself self sabotaging your awesomeness and make a conscious decision in that very moment to cut the crap!!! repeat
And now go out there, enjoy your weekend and TURN YOUR MAGIC UP!
We have enough miserable people in this world and we really need YOUR light! There’s so much of it in you!!
That makes so much sense!

Childhood was so so lonely for so many of us. And as we grew into adolescents, we may have felt this loneliness even more intensely.
I have a hard time wanting to remember that pain and emptiness young teen Leslie carried with her. The loneliness drove me to self-harm and other coping strategies that at the time just helped me feel “better” by means of mental escape. I wanted to be saved so much. I thought maybe my older half brother, who lived in Utah at the time and was 8 years older, might find me and come be my safe space in the absence of one. I would actively pray for that. We didn’t reconnect for many years. I took on the emotional role of parent for my little sister. No one took the emotional role of parent for me. They just couldn’t. [I hold no resentment.]
Reparenting myself has been a matter of choice... but also very much one of survival. It has required that I do go back to young teen Leslie. I let her know that she really is going to be okay. That I’m right here. That I got her. That this is serving a purpose. That she’s not been abandoned. That one day she will overflow with love received.
And sometimes... I need abuelita Leslie to step in and give mama-to-young-children Leslie a similar pep talk because, admittedly, there have been times where I still want to be saved. Or at least rocked to sleep for a few days. 😴 Because this shit’s still hard y’all! But also so beautiful, and complex, and purposeful. And at the very least, I’m now very much aware that it’s me, wiser versions of me, higher self me, who saves myself— even if it looks like allowing others to care for me when I can’t.
For those of you that have watched Frozen II— cue the song “Show Yourself” 😭 🎵“You are the one you’ve been waiting for all of your liiiiife!” 🎶 On repeat. 😝

The last few months have been so uncomfortable as I embark on this journey of healing.
I found myself questioning every single little thing.
The way I was raised
My sexual experiences
My relationship with myself
My relationships with others
My reaction and actions to certain things
I came to the realization that most of my relationships and experiences were unhealthy or not as healthy as I would like them to be.
I was always putting others before myself, criticizing others for not fulfilling the expectations I had of them and just completely had a negative perspective on where I was in life.
This feels like a calling, a calling from the universe that it is time to heal.
I want to stop letting the past define my future and controlling every decision in my life.
So what are you going to focus on in order to make that step to self healing?
When life opens a door for you, do you walk through it?
There's a lot that can hold you back. Fear. Uncertainty. Unbelief. Insecurity. Escapism. Ego. Trauma.
Often we stand, paralyzed in fear, looking for that last bit of clarity before making the move. And in that hesitancy, we lose out on the amazing experience of learning what we want in life and what we don't want.
The quality of our lives can be measured by the number of doors we're willing to walk through. When we consider the worth of what we want versus its price, the number of thresholds we have to cross becomes irrelevant.
Instead, the variables to live our best lives just becomes time and commitment—how willing and how fast can I gain experience?
Becoming the bad ass woman of my dreams day by day.
Dissociation is a helpful function; it is simply the biological ability to disconnect from their sensory experience, sense of Self, and memory of what happened. I.e if a tiger attacks us leaving a physical wound typically the body sends a rush of chemicals to help us dissociate from our bodies so we do not feel pain in the moment. Our bodies do this in order to access the frontal cortex and deal with the event in cognitive schemas. The goal is that we get to safety to take care of whatever wound we have. 🧠
While this protective function helps us as children to survive under distressful circumstances this also results in fragmentation. A part of us always knows how that event really felt. The problem with emotional/mental wounds is when we do not take care of them we stay fragmented (wearing that rain coat size 4T when we are size 7 adult).
Dissociation becomes unhelpful or a "dysfunction" when it is triggered unconsciously. If distressful events are not processed the body remembers and remains vigilant for cues. We run the risk of dissociation being triggered in ocassions where there is no actual perceived danger. So if we were attacked by a tiger, any grass shaking might trigger it; if we were harmed by our parents any relationship might trigger it. 🐯🌾
Dissociative symptoms can be denials such as: intellectualization, maximization, minimization, positivism, etc. We can also dissociate with compulsive behaviors (OCD, ADD, ADHD, exercise, religion/spirituality) or substances (food, sex, drugs, medication, etc). 💉💊
As a mental ability, dissociation can be used consciously. We do not need to get rid of it or cure it but we need to learn use it to support our recovery. In order to to do that, we have to face those wounds that made this program run on automatic; we need to integrate our fragmented parts.
New biz cards! ✨ This is what I do! 😊🎊

Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless. —Jamie Paolinetti

As children we easily perceive the magic in everything. The return to yourself is the return to the innocence of childhood, a much simpler state of being that allows our natural curiosity and creativity to shine through~
In reparenting my own inner child, I have been honoring and letting her be seen, allowing her to mess up, be curious, explore and revel, reconnecting with her wildness and also gaining an appreciation of just how much we can learn from little people on our healing journeys.
So fun and important letting our inner child come out and play!

Sometimes it’s not so simple to just let go. Sometimes we don’t know what letting go means. Sometimes letting go can be the most difficult thing or the easiest thing we have ever done, all we needed was some guidance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check out the link in my bio to apply to my 12 week transformational program Awaken the Badass. This program will help you learn how to let go of all the emotional conditioning and limiting patterns that you may or may not know you’re holding onto. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As high as our exiles soar when given the message that they are loved, they crash equally hard when the perceived redeemer withdraws that love.

Document every infraction that your ex commits against the legal custody agreement: late arrivals, cancellations, forgotten commitments, etc.
If the infractions are not related to the safety of your kids, you'll need to choose your court battles wisely. Evaluate if the issue is really worth going to your lawyer for every infraction they make because this will cost you money and time. The narcissist knows this and will likely try to drain your energy and bank account in this way.
It's best to document everything in writing as it's happening in case you need to use that at a future date in court. The more infractions they have, the more they should lose in front of the judge.
For more info, watch the video ‘When the narcissist uses your kids as pawns | Coparenting with a toxic ex’ on YouTube.
This is hard work and if you are doing it for you and your children, and the generations to come I am so proud of me and you ♥️
To my inner child
Any time I feel a wobble
My security feels threatened
My heart wants to close to protect itself
I want to self sabotage
My anger starts to bubble
I am triggered by a situation, memory, or person
I feel unheard, unseen, unloved
I connect with my inner child and the symbol I gave her
To remind her to breathe
That I will never abandon her again
That she is not alone
And she is worthy, amazing, loveable and loved
I am ok... she will be too
I am my inner child’s protector, hero, friend.
So that part of me can play, create, imagine and just be a child
Adding to the facets that make my life beautiful
Your inner child holds wounds
That will show up in your life
Until you move through them
You are the one that creates the change
Gathers up the abandoned and disconnected parts of self
And creates a safe space within
