Presence

Integrity is Sexy

Integrity is sexy.

It doesn’t matter what you commit to, but when you do — show up fully!

Know that when you commit to someone or something, you make an empowered decision to devote your energy, time, resources and heart.

It’s not only a practice, but a way of living with a deeper devotion and with Truth.

All day long we are given hundreds of opportunities and circumstances to practice living with integrity.

Some of these are definitely more fun and feel easier to commit to than others, but nonetheless, they all deserve the same quality of our attention.

And when we do show up fully, we are always rewarded because our actions feel more like acts of service, not only to others — but most importantly to ourselves.

We strengthen the emotional/mental muscles that give us the confidence, clarity and trust that we can and DO move in a way which is aligned with our thoughts/words.

In the beginning, living with this sort of integrity (which means living with honesty, accountability and integrated actions) can often feel contractive as extra effort/intention are required, however, with time we strengthen this capacity and it becomes a natural expression that we value within all aspects of our life.

We quickly realise what relationships, projects or circumstances are not being fueled or led with integrity, which allows us to redefine our boundaries and redirect our energy elsewhere.

It’s a way of reclaiming our power through presence!

Because we when show up with full presence (no matter how small or big the act) we walk away from it with a sense of completion and contentment.

We can rest assured that we gave 100% of ourselves — from there we can soften around the tiny details or outcome, and open further to the Grace of the Universe to carry us forwards in the best way possible ⚡️

The Power of Human Connection

Human connection. 
It’s a Universal desire and shared value throughout all cultures and times. It enhances the quality of life and increases our longevity.
In a fast paced modern world, often driven by technology and virtual interactions, these moments of human connection are priceless. Presence is the most powerful commodity of our times. 
When we boldly meet the eyes of another, listen without interrupting, share with honesty or touch with intention, there is an energetic exchange that connects us to the heart. 
We allow the other person to feel seen, heard and felt. We support them to soften and shed the armor. They are more likely to trust and experience the intimacy of our presence. 
When another leans in and receives, we too can lean in and receive...even if we are the one offering. Thats the simple beauty of these connections - they provide nourishment for both people if they are willing to open to it. 
And when we meet another in this way - whether it’s for a fleeting moment or an extended experience, we feel the power of our shared humanity. 
We all seek greater depth in our life through nourishing interactions - with ourselves and to others as they gift us a sense of belonging which almost instantly brings us into a remembrance that we are a part of something larger. 
We awaken to Spirit, which guides us to acknowledge that we are all one...eternally connected with shared desires and dreams. 
These sweet connections are what make life worth living. If our presence has the potential to change and uplift another’s experience for the better, we are changing the world, simply through our willingness to show up. 
It’s the simple things in life that make a big impact...through our devotion to a creating world with more love, and with consistent efforts.
