Soul Love: Believe It To See It

Soul LoveMarylinComment

I really love these #truthbombs by Danielle LaPorte. 

They always seem to know what I need to hear!

Sometimes, you have to believe it to see it.

To me, this is a reminder to have confidence in myself. Something that has been in hiding from me for the last few weeks. 

Here's the thing: I got a car, and I've put on about a stone in weight. 

And as my weight has always been a huge issue for me (huge being the operative word), my confidence just plummeted. 

I think a combo of that and being single again.

Don't get me wrong, I *love* being single, and I would much rather this than in a relationship where I'm stifled and unable to be myself, but it has knocked my confidence. I think it does with most people doesn't it?

So when this baby jumped out at me, I understood what it meant, for me, straight away:

Time to step out of the bubble and get back to being ME!

And the three crystals I added? Well I'll tell you a little about them too!

  • Chrysocolla. A stone all about communication. 
    I'd been bottling up how I was feeling, and I know that's no good for me, so I brought this beautiful blue-green stone out to help me talk about how I was feeling. 
    I had a good long chat with my mum, and also two of my besties, and felt *so* much better for it.
     
  • Clear quartz. The perfect stone for healing, positive thoughts, and balance. I had become anxious and down - in need of some healing kindness, along with some balance to help with my weight issue. And with the rubbish "summer" weather we've had over the holidays, I'd been staying in or using the car, and just vegging out all day with the kids. 
    I've started up a small 20 minute daily yoga practice and have swapped out all fizzy drinks for water. I'm feeling much more confident in myself from doing this alone! I'll be writing a post about it soon, so be on the look out!
     
  • Citrine. One of my favourites! This zesty stone is filled with abundant and positive summery energy. It can help with wealth, positive mindset, bringing joy into your life and generally is a pretty kick ass crystal! 
    I figured it couldn't hurt to have some awesome positivity when I had been feeling low and was starting to let myself wallow in negativity. It's ok to have an off day, but I don't want to let myself stay that way for long. I mean it's depressing. Literally. 
    So this baby has been reminding me to be positive, change my mindset and look for the silver linings. Something I love to do. 

It's definitely all helped. 

I'm definitely believing in myself more and seeing the results. 

And if nothing else? It's pretty to look at! ;)
