There is a place within you where anxiety cannot exist - Your Gorgeous Heart!
Good health, inner peace, abundance, meaningful relationships and a fulfilling sense of purpose don't have to be wishful thinking or some unobtainable dream. The question is, are you courageous enough to explore the depths of your own being and appreciate how miraculous, beautiful and amazing you really are? Are you ready to discover unconditional love for yourself and therefore for others, and to appreciate what you bring to the world?
If the answer is YES! or even a maybe, read on and discover what Gorgeous Hearts is all about....
There may be many reasons that on the surface, seem different between one person and another, but they are all stories and individual perceptions. Not good enough, not deserving, there's no point, I'm too old, young, fat, weak, etc. The consequence of feeling that these stories are true, often leads to a feeling of powerlessness that causes ANXIETY. Anxiety then becomes the way we live and think. This negative mind set, the limiting beliefs, worrying about the future, fear, control and contraction contribute to anxiety - the antithesis of joy.
What is anxiety and how does it affect us?
Anxiety can be a dark shadow that follows you around, wrapping around you in the most unexpected situation and leaving you feeling powerless, like a cardboard cut out of yourself. No wonder we seek instant relief in the form of unhealthy comfort food, alcohol, coffee and cigarettes etc. and no wonder obesity related disease is so prevalent. But aside from how it negatively affects your health, it also impacts your relationships, work and the way you express.
Anxiety can also be an occasional visitor that pounds at the door of your solar plexus when a particular situation arises. You feel that you don't have the answers, the skill, the knowledge or the talent to deal with what life is presenting you with and it leaves you feeling unconfident.
Anxious feelings can escalate quickly and get out of control, so the trick is to catch the first signs early on - that's when you can deal with it. You can also introduce the following into your life to be prepared to not react to what life is presenting you with:
Gorgeous Hearts supports you to increase your level of conscious presence through these practices, and offers effective strategies to enable you to feel more confident, present, grounded and empowered - tackling the root cause of your anxiety.
Your true beauty is within. You may sense it's depths, but are you true to it? Observing what thwarts your expression and letting go of what doesn't belong to love, will all be part of discovering your true expression. Be inspired to take opportunities, be of service and discover your expression and purpose.
Self-care shouldn't feel like a discipline. If it does, it will be an uphill struggle. True self-care is spontaneous and natural when you deepen the relationship with yourself. It arises from your soulful expression and can be felt when you re-connect to you. Learn to love you for your unique and beautiful light.
To be truly free, you need to know yourself intimately and develop self-love. It begins with observation and honesty and a process of discarding what you are not. Expectations, control, fear, contraction - the list is long. Confidence is born from a trust in your innate wisdom, rather than what you know.
"I would love to support you to be confident, feel your purpose, reconnect to your true beauty and soulful expression. That’s what Gorgeous Hearts is all about!"
Gorgeous hearts is named after all of the Gorgeous Souls out there - yes you!! Individual behaviours may not be so gorgeous, but these are not really the essence of a person, they are adopted or chosen and mainly dependent upon circumstances such as upbringing, family, education, culture or religion etc. You may think that genes have something to do with this too, but nurture sure beats nature when it comes to expressing more lovingly - we do have a choice. The soul in every single individual is the expression that is true and who we can choose to meet within ourselves and every one else.
I offer support to those who recognise that there is more than what we see on the surface. More than what society leads us to believe there is. We repeat our own flavour of 'Groundhog Day' with all of the ups and downs that it entails, but if we dig a little deeper, we can find a universe that is eternal and full of love. Gorgeous Hearts endeavours to support you to embrace your whole self and live in a way that is harmonious.
In order to do that, we tackle anxiety head on by learning to recognise and discard what is not really you and focusing energy on what is your true expression working on self-confidence, self-care and self-discovery. There are specific strategies to reconnect to the soul which is free from any perceived issues, behaviours or limiting beliefs that cause you to react negatively to life. These strategies are effective because they are fun, easy to adopt as a routine and natural.
My experience and skills in vocal and transformational life coaching come together in what I call soulful expression coaching. I aim to support you to reduce anxiety naturally and to reconnect to your wisdom, intuition, truth, harmony and a whole new way of expressing that comes from the abundance of love within you. I work with teens, men, women, singers, public speakers, women in menopause and just about anyone who this resonates with.
I’m 52 years old as I write this and like most people, I know how anxiety feels and how it can completely wreck relationships, health and opportunities that life presents us with. I often feel a low hum of anxiety that is palpable when I slow down and observe my rhythm. Considering that expression encompasses every movement that we live, anxiety will colour these and create a specific result. Our thoughts, movements, what we say, what we choose and how we behave are all coloured by it. Could it be that changing our expression can affect everything? Can we put this in reverse order and get rid of the anxiety? I believe so - but it comes down to the energy that creates the expression.......
I have a daughter who suffers anxiety disorder and panic attacks, and we have witnessed the devastating effects that it can cause.
It’s not a pretty sight and she has suffered greatly, especially during her early teens. However, one thing has always helped her - singing. She sings all the time and it really helps her to release that anxiety. Singing has some amazing health benefits all by itself, however, it doesn’t end there, otherwise we could all go to our bedrooms or spend a fortune on water by hogging the shower, put on our favourite track and belt out our angst.
Back to the energy behind expression - not all music, and not all expression is the same because not all energy is the same. Energy takes different forms and behind that form is a because, an intention if you like. An intention to heal doesn’t have the same vibration as an intention to harm and yet we are less than discerning about the vibrations that are continually passing through our bodies. Different foods have different vibrations depending on where it is grown, produced, packaged and sold. Music varies and is influenced by the artist, the producers etc. Using your own voice therefore is an excellent way to be assured that you are receiving the intention of healing and love that you choose as long as you are connecting to the love within.
When I started to apply this as a vocal coach, I received some amazing results. Performers were able to let go of their performance anxiety and get into the flow much more easily, however, the best results were with total beginners who hadn’t learned about controlling the voice yet. They were able to let go and not introduce muscle tension to the singing channel (from breathing to throat, larynx, tongue and jaw)
So, I began using these techniques along with transformational life coaching, which also helped clients to connect with themselves and be more 'in the zone' before exploring and sharing.
Life coaching allows you to expand your understanding and let go of limiting beliefs that hold you back. The vocal vibration awareness techniques support you to connect to your body. Ultimately there is a re-connection to one's true essence which is the beginning of a new dialogue with your Gorgeous Heart – your soul.
Gorgeous Hearts is the result of my experience and skills combining self-connection, expression, meditation, self-care, life-coaching and singing in a unique way to reduce anxiety and re-discover the depth and beauty of your whole being.
“Evolving isn't self-development or personal growth. You don't have to work on yourself do anything, or try. You already are amazing - just by being you! You need to believe it and then you will realise your grandness. Reconnect to that person and ditch all that stops your expression. Self-doubt, lack of self-worth and self-judgement is not who you are - you just choose to express them"
