Hi Dreamers! If you have been following me on Instagram (if not follow me here!) you know I have been sick the past few weeks. What started off as difficulty breathing turned into a lung infection — after a round of antibiotics and receiving an IVIG treatment (something I do every 2-3 months since my transplant), I am happy to share I am feeling like my normal happy self again! YAY for medicine and radical self-care!
The news I am SO excited to announce is . . . Dan and I are officially moving back to Brooklyn in a few short weeks!
I shared on the blog back in February a highlight reel of what went down in 2017 (brief recap: our company went out of business and our lives were completely turned upside down, you can read all about it here). Well, that hardship became one of the biggest blessings in our lives. In this post I am going to share how it all unfolded and why fully trusting the Universe, surrendering in every way and having patience is the answer to being in a magical flow with life.
When we closed the doors of our company back in September the idea of leaving New York and having a truly fresh start was not just appealing, it seemed absolutely incredible. We searched for months for the right job/neighborhood/home that felt like the perfect fit for us but nothing was working out (first sign from the Universe).
This past June I celebrated 10 years living in New York and it was around that time that I started to get hits that it wasn’t time for us to leave. I couldn’t shake the feeling that New York wasn’t quite done with us.
Dan and I began talking about what it would look/feel like if we stayed, he applied for jobs locally and within the next few weeks he accepted a position that was perfect for him AND we manifested our dream apartment (lots more on this to come, I can’t wait to show you our new home)! The road has not been easy but I could pinch myself as I see all that is unfolding. The Universe shows me time and time again that when I surrender the vision is there for me to step into to. It is there for each and every one of us.
As much as I craved moving on to the next chapter over the past 6 months, I can see now how much growth I uncovered being in the midst of the unknown.
Here are a few of the tools I used to create more trust + magical flow in my life:
Prayer — asking God for guidance, knowing within every ounce of my being that I am being supported by a higher power and spending time in the space of trusting the journey.
Meditation — getting still with myself, sticking with my kundalini and breathwork practice, laying the foundation for myself every day.
Journaling — moving through allll the feelings in the best way I know how, writing it out. The anger, frustration, despair, confusion, hitting the pen to paper and navigating it all which helped me to receive clarity and come back to myself, we hold all the answers we just need to get quiet enough to listen.
Cultivating Inner Awareness — when I truly tuned in to my heart, I knew I didn’t want to leave. Through my work, I was able to fully access my intuition and create a deeper connection to myself so I was making decisions from knowing myself vs. others opinions/stories about what would be best for me.
When you live life from a place of trust, surrender, and patience, that is where the magical flow happens. That is where you manifest a life beyond your wildest dreams. The inner work, understanding who you are and creating clarity around the vision is so important. When you do the inner work, portals open. I see it for myself, my clients, family, and friends every day.
Anything is possible and you are worthy of everything you could ever dream of.
I can’t wait to bring you along with me on this exciting new chapter! SEE YOU SOON BROOKLYN!
