March ushers in a new season, spring, and with it comes restoration and regeneration. A time of new beginnings. A time of hope, renewed faith in the wonders of our world and awe for our resilience, ability to survive, adapt and change during harsh times.
Let’s Talk Real (Instagram @letstalkrealgib) has been privileged to speak to many about personal renewal and realignment during COVID challenging times, which has enabled self-care and self-love. This journey within has for many brought about a shift of energy, an elevation, for some, to a higher level of consciousness. The purging of all that is negative in your life, in order to make room to focus on self-preservation and positivity, has been part of the process: often the necessity to lose others in order to find yourself, made easier through lockdowns, confinement, restrictions and isolation. COVID has stripped away, for many of us, who we thought we were and what made us happy.
And this is what Anne Marie Morello (Instagram @anne.marie.morello), a ‘Quantum Transformation Coach’, so eloquently spoke to us about; how realisation, acceptance, self-reflection, positive affirmation, attraction and manifestation can help us get through a metaphorical dark winter towards rebirth in a new spring; through meditation, yoga, visualisation, tapping and journaling. Changing behaviour through the way we use language to speak to ourselves, and unlocking the mental lock in order to flick the inspirational switch, re-coding your trauma. Her work involves empowering you to use your energy for yourself, to guide you through your blocks, deepen your connection to source and step into your soul purpose.
Shine so bright it offends them.
Simon and Isobel had two chats with Anne Marie for Let’s Talk Real:
What she does: getting people in touch with what’s getting in their way to progress as a person and then getting them back in touch with who they really are. Her work is very spiritual, integrating it with the mental, physical and emotional. Understanding and feeling that we are all part of a unified energy that is the Universe. There are many ways to access this: spiritually, through religion, through nature, meditation, yoga, the arts… find whatever works for you to lose yourself in order to find yourself.
Spirituality: How to tap into ourselves and connect our energy field with the all. That our beliefs are the filter to our external realities and how we perceive them. Aligning our thoughts, emotions and actions in order to find peace. And the process is: to first feel it, then heal it, then transmute/change it, and then birth your idea (of whatever it is you want to achieve spiritually) and nurture it. Putting it bluntly, Anne Marie and Simon said: “Spirituality is facing your sh*t!”
There is no coincidence that online are many resources and inspirational Wellness and Transformational coaches and speakers giving guidance, especially this last year or so. Something I read from a friend, which resonated with me, I share now:
“Having a daily spiritual practice really helps you make space for all of your deliciousness. Detoxing and diplomatically handing over what is not yours helps build a more solid core of creativity, so take time out and explore. You are made up of the same particles as stars, so by default you were born to shine. You can illuminate your whole world just by seeing how beautiful you are. All of that darkness and heavy energy from years of negativity can be extinguished by the acceptance of who you really, truly are.
…Your job is to illuminate every place you go, be it in your thoughts, by your physical presence, or through the conversations you have. We spend so much of our time absorbing other people’s problems, but that’s just wasted energy. Look in the mirror and open your eyes at your personal phenomenon. Don’t let others’ actions towards you break your star. Shine so bright it offends them.”
So embrace your spring: cleanse, heal, energise, nourish and renew yourself. Remind yourself every day of how lucky you are; how grateful you are for your blessings. Positively affirm and believe “I am enough”, “I love myself”, “I choose myself first in order to help others”, “X, Y, Z… it’s going to happen”. This is so empowering, taps into the essence of who you truly are, changes your level of consciousness and moves you towards a place of positivity and regeneration… like the spring.
