It’s been awhile since I shared a “what the heck is going on in my world post”, so I want to get you up to speed!
I won’t lie, I have felt like a big ol fat back of stress over the last 3 weeks with an aura of fear surrounding me. ick.
Before I jump into how the stress has been showing up in and on my body (so sexy I know), I want to let you know what I have been up to!
My site: www.KrisBritton.net is live and this is my spiritual life + success coaching brand. We talk about how you can love yourself, become a coach, make great money, etc ; )
But here, on iheartwellness.com we talk about the wellness side of things. The holistic, real, raw, what your body, mind and soul needs to thrive! This blog has also called me back to post on because I feel it’s home in some way. I’ve been here on IHW for over 9 years and I can’t believe it has gone through the transformation and success it has, so I am grateful!
Let’s talk STRESS and FEAR.
I am usually the blog you can come to get some positive support and I love to give you all the coaching support you need to have your own break through and we will get to that today, but I do want to let you into my world so you can understand my healing journey right now. I have been quite stressed.
3 weeks ago, I stepped away from contracting work I was doing that paid me really well. Like, really well. I adored the transformations that were happening and how I played a role in the work I did, helping people get started on a plan to change their lives financially and to live their dreams through their business, but my heart kept telling me that “I had a bigger message to share” and the stress I was feeling from this work was manifesting in my body.
My skin that had been clear for years now took a little turn down breakout lane and I started to panic! All my old fears came up around my breakouts and I felt as if I wasn’t tuned into my own body.
Every day that I brought myself back to “basics” and did the work I know best on myself, I intuitively went into my body.. “what do you need?” and I kept hearing the message to step into my greatest gifts and messages FULLY!
So I did.
I took the calling of my heart and have gone back to my roots and my message in business!
My Goddess Boss Essential Oil team is rocking and they need my full attention and support! << – So blessed!! *is this real life?!*
My coaching clients and group coaching programs needed me to be fully with them for their support and growth!
But what I found was once I left this contracting position, I felt a lot of fear. I actually did a FACEBOOK LIVE on this “Fear Of Rejection” that I faced and what I have been doing to overcome it:
I felt myself questioning “can I really do this?!” and without me knowing this dialog was going on, I stressed!
My back hurt!
My skin was a mess!
My fear would feel it was eating at my stomach!
I had bags like crazy under my eyes…
All my old shit came up and showed me what it was saying in and on my body.
If you’re feeling this stress and fear in your life, the first step is always to look at what’s going on.
When I finally could stop and look, I knew what I needed to do! I needed to 1. talk to my stress, what is it telling me? what fears did I need to let go of. 2. choose new thoughts and beliefs to support my desires instead of feed my fears.
The craziest thing is, I didn’t know my stress was this vicious until I saw it manifesting in my body! How many other people are walking around with feelings of pain in their bodies and just push it off? What I know is our biography is our biology! Yup. If we are telling ourselves stories of stress and fear, we will feel it in our body. We will get the breakouts, lack of sleep, anxiousness in our chests and hormone imbalances. Because our cells match that energy.
We are all energy and we’re creating energy based on our feelings and those feelings come from out thoughts.
It’s a crazy cycle, folks!
Here’s what you can do to flip this stress and fear around!
- Choose to feel who you want to feel without stress, fear and anxiety!
- Remove all toxins from your body, mind and soul. (meditated, use natural beauty care, use essential oils for stress relief, feed your mind with thoughts of the truest you)
- Balance your 7 chakras daily! (you can do this with doing 5 rounds of sun salutations, meditations and affirmations!)
- Replace your fear with the truth! (I have a whole exercise on letting fear go here)
- USE YOUR ESSENTIAL OILS! (I can not tell you how much my oils have helped me. I use them for grounding my energy daily, breathing deeply and out of fear, resetting my mind, letting stress and anxiety go!)
Let it be easy and let yourself fall into this new stress free lifestyle with the support of a power greater than you. I say this all the time to my clients, “we are not here for nothing and we are certainly not here to struggle!”
We are not our emotions.
We create emotions because we give thoughts that have no charge or meaning, meaning and a charge. We dictate which thoughts are good for us or not and that determines what we feel! Like I said, what we feel is what we get.
I have accepted that I need to keep my mind on loving myself, trusting in the Universe and knowing that I have so much to create here on the planet and it’s mine to create!
As for my skin, I can share with you what has been clearing it up if you are interested? Let me know in the comments below.
I get questions all the time in my inbox from women who feel stressed and anxious and they want to know which oils to use for stress and anxiety – the essential oils I use will help you.
But I did write a whole blog post on Essential Oils for Stress + Anxiety
Have a read and see what lands for you.
Now, in the meantime babes…. I am back with a mission and full in my abundant business that I am pouring my heart and leadership into! My life is feeling really good : )
I have also been on a set daily routine to balance my energy centers within and use my oils for my chakras, I can do a whole post on that too! It feels so good and my body feels so loved and nourished. <3
I would love to hear from you! How have you been dealing with any stress in your life? Do you see stress manifest in your body?
