The Self-Care Sessions: Part 1- DEAR BODY

Loves, do you struggle with pain and/or a lack of love for the body you are living in?

I have been studying the powerful and positive effects of self-love & self-acceptance for the past several years. One practice that has been so helpful to me is spending some time each day sending Love and Affirmations to my self, and the revealing & healing that takes place has been truly remarkable.

Here is a gentle meditation for/prayer to my body that I would like to share with you:

Dear Body, Thank You for carrying me through this Life. Forgive me for bringing you to this place of pain. Let’s release all that is harming us. I love you.”

I will be sharing more of my gentle meditations with you in the coming days. I hope you find them helpful. They are not a collection of magic words, but instead they are powerful tools that can help you to reveal areas of your life where deeper healing can take place.

In my work as an Empowerment Coach, I am available to guide you in developing your own practice of Self-Love and Self-Care. The work We do together is deep, and will challenge you to reveal and release energetic blocks that are keeping you from living your best life.

You can schedule a free consultation with me just by clicking the button at the top of the page.

Peace & Blessings,

Michelle

A Moment of Truth

Want a peek behind the veil?

Today I had a moment of truth and clarity that froze me in my tracks. My cousin Nicole and I were in the midst of recording an episode for our podcast, and something we were talking about triggered a powerful message.

I went blank as the divine download was coming in, and couldn’t speak in the moment. I held on, breathed through it, and waited until I could continue our conversation.

It was deep, y’all!

I knew I would need some time to process what was happening inside me, and gave myself the immediate space I needed. I checked in, and found resonance. It took a hot minute, but I faced the thing inside my belly that was ugly & shameful: an old story of unworthiness & a need to be rescued- and met it with love & grace.

I have found that on this road of healing, the most beautiful moment is when we finally discover the Truth: We came into this world as already worthy, not as something flawed and broken.

We are just making our way back to that space of perfect knowing, that place of reverence, awe & acceptance, while discovering the magic along the way. We step in shit, we get messy, we peel away layers of the old stories and lies until we get back to the truth, the light, the love. THAT is the journey.

Whenever I can pause and see how far I have come, I am grateful. There is still a long way to go, and I love each new day I’m given to keep exploring this life.

PS- I’m not entirely sure how this will manifest- maybe as a video series, book, workshop or course- but it looks like I have some more work to do around forgiveness and making amends. Hit reply or subscribe to my email newsletter list and let me know if this is something that you would be interested in learning more about.

What do you see when you look at me?

“Shut your face, Suzy Sunshine! What the hell do you know about real life?”

When you look at me, what do you see? Do you see: Confidence? Beauty? Strength? Joy? Kindness? Happiness? Positivity? A silly blonde?

Yes- I am all of those, but i am so much more.


To look at me now, you might never guess that I ever struggled, let alone felt pain, shame, and paralyzing fear for most of my life.

From early childhood, i suffered as a victim of molestation, bullying, and abuse. It played as a recurring theme throughout my teens, and later manifested as a man with terrible demons of his own- the man who became my child’s father. The man who nearly killed me.

I escaped from that situation with my baby boy and anything i could stuff in the trunk of my mom’s car, but i would go on to live in the hell of my nightmares for years- decades- to come. I tried numbing with drugs and booze, shallow relationships, and dat party lyf! Of course, it only carried more pain, more shame, more fear.

What saved me? Love. Love reached down from heaven and gave me another chance to live. Love showed up in kind, caring, REAL friendships. Love pointed me to therapy, to community, and to finding my true self. Slowly, i began the deep, healing work of forgiveness, learning to trust again, and walk alongside my shadow in order to find my Light. To discover who I really am: I Am Love, I Am Forgiveness, I Am Grace, I Am Healing. I Am Worthy & Deserving of Good Things. I Am a Warrior, and I Am Peace.

It’s why I AM so happy. So strong. So confident. So joyful. So positive. So ALIVE. And it’s what led me to this place, this chapter of my life, where I can finally help other women to heal their soul’s wounds, release their shame, and write a new, happy, empowered ending to their life’s story. You and I are Warriors, Love! 💖🦋

#MondayMantra I Allow Myself to Shine 

Are you letting your sparkly soul to shine through today? This world needs your brightest light!

Today’s mantra is a powerful collection of I Am statements and culminates in allowing:

  • I am Strong
  • I am Smart
  • I am Brave
  • I am Bright
  • I Allow Myself to Shine

Memorial Day Mantra

Memorial Day is one of 3 annual events set aside for Americans to honor our military service members, along with Veterans Day and Armed Forces Day. Today holds the somber distinction of remembering the men and women who lost their lives while in service, of honoring the fallen on the fields of battle. It’s not so much of a “happy” occasion, though there’s really nothing wrong with celebrating Life while remembering the dead and dearly departed. So on this day, remember the fallen; send a prayer for the heroes who have given the ultimate sacrifice; lay a flower or a flag on a soldier’s grave, then by all means enjoy your BBQs and parades, laugh with and hug tightly your family & friends, and spread Peace, Love and Light to the living that the Brave may not have died in vain. 

#FridayFeels Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem = Seize the Day

Today is what you have. Today!

You have an amazing day in front of you, what will you do with it? How will you spend your precious time, who will you tell that you love them, how many people will be blessed by your smile? 

What challenges will you rise to, where will you shine? Which dragon will you slay, which demon will you stare down? Who gets to see your victory dance? How many times will you LAUGH. OUT. LOUD.

Today, Darling, TODAY is the day that you have, so for the love of all that is holy, Carpe the shit of this Diem!


#MondayMantra Ready!

Today’s mantra is a positive affirmation and powerful reminder that we are ready for the next experience, the next adventure, the next lesson, the next step, whenever it is presented to us. 

Even when we feel unprepared. Even when we feel nervous. Even when we feel afraid. Why? Because even when we “fail” at that next whatever, we are still learning, still growing, still awakening to the discovery of who we are and the strength within. That is where the healing happens. That is what we are ready for!

Mantra: Yes, I am Ready for This!

#FridayFeels New!

I love the energy shift in the first few days following a full moon. It’s as though there’s a collective release of negative thoughts and emotions and after getting a big hug from the universe, it is easier to set your sights on the possibilities ahead. 

Set your intentions now for what you want to create, open up to, or reveal in the weeks to come, and get ready to embrace the start of something new!

#MondayMantra …Up Through the Cracks

I’m always impressed with the tenacity of weeds in the city. No matter how much concrete, if there is even a tiny crack in the ground or along a wall, somehow nature finds a way through. 

I desire to be more like those weeds-pushing back against the hardscape, reaching for the light, blooming wherever I am. 


Today’s mantra is a powerful reminder:  I am like a beautiful weed growing up through the cracks.

#FridayFeels Majestic Journey

It’s Friday, and I’m in Norway. (Norway! I am still giddy saying that.) I’ve been able to travel around the world, always awestruck by the incredible sights and natural wonders. This tour of the fjords, though- I haven’t been able to wrap my head around how utterly, stunningly beautiful it is. 

As we were sailing into Geiranger yesterday flanked by mile high granite cliffs topped with snow and accented by 5000 ft waterfalls, I was completely overcome with emotion and drops of pure gratitude fell from my eyes in the stillness of the great fjord. This place is what the words breathtaking, awesome, and majestic were created to capture- and even these don’t do it justice.

Wherever you may find yourself in this amazing world today, please remind yourself to pause and look around. Give thanks, and enjoy the Majesty of your life’s journey.
