We are made of Love. All kinds of emotions get to exist alongside that love but we are made of Love. By the way, those tears you cry? Those and the emotions you feel in grief are coming from the profound love you feel for whoever or whatever you have lost. This song is all about falling apart, about the emotional outpouring and relief that is possible if you stop trying to hold your shit together and instead just let yourself fall apart and allow your life to fall apart.
It’s time to really allow yourself to experience life – and to experience YOU more fully than you have before. The fine line between taking things for granted, being way too excited about something manifesting and because of that, chasing it away, and the middle ground of being present, aware, allowing flow and expansion to happen. Whatever you want to harvest, it’s not too late to plant those seeds! So get planting! Here is Brenda’s top 3 tips on how to manifest and create experiences you love…
When this song came through, my life felt NOTHING like sunshine. It felt like darkness, pain and hopelessness. It was a lot more like “a little blue”. It felt like I was questioning myself over and over, what did I do wrong? What’s wrong with me? I felt like I’d lost my best friend – because I had. I had lost my friendship with the person I was calling my best friend for a lonnnnggg time.
When you feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, angry, sad or any other uncomfortable emotions, parts of you might poke at you, looking for reassurance or acknowledgement. Be here for yourself… ALL parts of you. You have everything you need, as in, you have inner resources you may not even realize you have.
Sometimes there are just no words. What really needs to be expressed is emotions, and we don’t always need words for that. Maybe it’s just tears, or your body will get you moving, or you feel it in your stomach, or some other part of your body. Maybe your body will stop you in your tracks and you can do nothing at all.
We’re all wandering around on this planet trying to do our best and we all have our own individual experience… and we are all connected! You’re not alone in any fear or doubt or anxiety or grief you feel. We are all having some kind of a human experience on the planet right now, so on some level we get each other and we are each other. In other words, I’m a little like you and you’re a little like me.
I won’t get into making goals for yourself because I’ve published articles on that already. I will say that it’s still important to set goals for ourselves. What if you knew that every moment of every day presents you with new life, new opportunities, and literally brand new cells in your body? That is all #truth. And it’s one principle that has helped me get through the tragedy of my son being taken from me by gun violence. Here’s what you need to know when you set important goals, and when the outcomes are nothing like what you hoped…
My journey with grief began when I was just 15. We all grieve differently and every loss is different. Sudden violent deaths are way up there on the devastation meter, whereas death by natural causes can be not as difficult to deal with. But again it depends on who you are, your life experiences and how you deal with hardship and heartbreak. I know grief can be confusing and hard to manage. Please don’t deal with it alone. Find friends, or maybe an organization, therapist, counsellor, elder… whoever feels right for you.
You know that moment when everything is going just amazing for you, and then poof, something puts a wrench right in it? All this beautiful expansive energy in motion for so long and then it just dissipates. But does it? So I get to this amazing sweet spot of pure joy and expansion from hours and hours every day of working on my next music album a couple of weeks ago… Total bliss songwriting, practicing, singing, recording, experimenting, and then…
So you know how we all have kind of our own unique style? And that shows up in our homes, workplaces, clothing, makeup, hair etc. Or doesn’t. How much of that are you doing for YOU? How much of that are you doing to please other people? How much of YOU do you really really love? That’s what I explore in the video, with some tips and dares for you. And of course one of my cats had to join us lol! Sukie is our rescue cat, our youngest. She’s so sweet.
