Hello sweet souls, my name is Danielle and thank you so much for taking time to read this. Welcome to diving deep with dd. I know things are crazy for everyone right now, and we each have something different going on, so this post is going to get straight to the point on how to start feeling great right now. This has been a spot where I have expressed more of my past pain and even had this realization I’ve been the wounded healer. I’ve been healing and mostly talking about the pain. I’m here to say that chapter has ended. I am still figuring out who I am and I am getting clearer and clearer! Truly I know I’ve always wanted to have my own business and I feel so grateful to be able to intuitively guide with my gifts and be a bad ass business woman helping lift other bad ass business women! I will no longer be telling the story of the wounded healer. I have taken my power back and I will take responsibility for my choices and actions because there’s enough pain in this world I’m here to brighten it up a little and help women align with their abundance also. From here on out this will be a place to dive deeper into the empowerment, the passion and the purpose. I will still discuss the pain but it will quickly lead to the purpose!
We all deserve to get the fuck out of our pain and into our purpose.
I’ve been taking this time to really go inward and figure out some deep shit. I hope you all are doing well in these intense times but if you are wanting to feel a little more back in alignment I am going to share 7 easy ways to get you back to feeling your best!
I’ve had life slapping me in the face left and right but these things have really helped me get out of my head and back into moving forward even in these times where life feels like it came to a sudden stop.
I just want to take a moment to acknowledge anyone who has been going through hell and is still trying to get through to a better time, a better feeling and better life. You are doing the work and that is brave! Give yourself credit, healing is hard and it’s never going to be linear. So here we are, hope you enjoy!
Meditate. This can be hard to put your mind to it but once you do trust me you won’t regret it. Meditation always gets me back on track. Your mind is powerful and the more positivity you feed it the stronger your positive outlook will be. It goes so much deeper than that even. For years I worked in a restaurant and I was constantly on the go go go. My mind was always racing and my anxiety felt so familiar, I didn’t even know it was there. When your stressed out, our nervous system is working on over drive and when you always have an over active nervous system you basically just keep piling on the stress. If you just take a second to take a pause, your nervous system will start to reboot. This will help you with so many things!
Get out in nature. This will always raise your vibration easily and effortlessly. I don’t have to say much, I’m sure you’ve been out in nature and immediately you feel an overwhelming feeling of bliss. That is the magic only nature can bring. Rain, sun or snow, nature always seems to reflect back a message we are needing.
Movement. This was the absolute key to me recovering from my depression. It was hard at first. I had no motivation to get up and my days were spent netflixing and escaping my reality. I started moving A little more every day and now I can’t remember how it felt to not want to move honestly. Move out of the energy, move out of the story and the power it’s holding over you. I still do this. Motion causes a flow of emotion and this really lets the good feels start flowing it! Dance, run, go on a walk just do something to get moving and it will push you to the next place your wanting to go!
Rest. So important. We need to work, hustle and create but if we don’t rest none of those things will be achieved easily. This happened to me today even. I had a full Monday productively planned. I woke up sore, and had very little sleep the night before. Instead of forcing myself to get to work I listened to my body and it needed more rest. I would have said absolutely not before, it’s Monday, you can’t be lazy on a Monday. That is not how I operate anymore, thank goodness! I let myself rest, I fell back asleep for a good 5 more hours and after I was so pumped and rejuvenated. I got more work done after my rest and relaxation than I have in weeks. Giving yourself rest is essential. If you are up leveling rest will be your best friend. Allow yourself to rest and work, it doesn’t have to be one or the other!
Listen to something that makes you feel good. Affirmations are my favorite. Or even podcasts have been a great uplifted lately. Find a few you love and listen when you need a little inspiration! Can’t forget about the booty shaking music, or what ever your style is! Music always sets the mood! If I am mad or sad I put that genre on that pulls out those emotions and wow, I always feel great after. Of course I have my feel good playlist and that always perks up my mood instantly, with some twerking of course.
Organize. So simple yet so uplifting. A messy life makes you feel a little more overwhelmed than you may need to be. Start small. I bet this will bring clarity and a bit of the weight off your shoulders when you do feel stressed.
Last but not least, take care of yourself. I don’t know who came up with these conditioned terms like taking care of yourself should only be done once all the work is done, or once you achieve this. It’s all garbage. The only way we will get the work done and the only way we will achieve anything is if we take care of ourselves. Some of us weren’t taught these simple things, some of our parents weren’t taught these simple things and it was passed down that it was honorable to take care of everyone around you first and then yourself last. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. In my opinion the more we love ourselves and take care of our shit, the more love we have to give and the more value we give to the people around us. So actually it’s kinda selfless to take care of yourself, right?
