Hello beautiful souls,
This past weekend I attended my 4th Bliss Project. As always, I want to take the opportunity to reflect and share my experience with all of you. Powerful shifts and transformations happen every year, and I know that by sharing here, it will help, impact and empower all of you gorgeous readers.
Let’s begin with where I came into Bliss from. After the Bliss Project 2018, I felt like I immediately went down and then rode on an emotional roller coaster for a majority of the year. I swear, I never cried so much in my life as I did last March.
It felt like step after step I took, God put up roadblock after roadblock. Testing just how much I wanted what I said I did and also making sure any lessons that hadn’t been mastered or any tools I was still lacking were addressed.
And…I “failed.” I crumbled. I got DEFEATED. I stayed on the ground for a LONG TIME before getting back up. Throughout these tough times, my belief in myself plummeted. I lacked faith. I didn’t stop believing in myself, but my belief was at an all-time low.
So, going into Bliss, I felt as though I didn’t make as much progress as in years past.
The theme that Lori chose for this year’s event was, “Permission.” Ironically, my intention going into The Bliss Project this year was to let go, surrender and release. LET GO of limiting beliefs and thoughts, SURRENDER to God’s plan and RELEASE anything not serving me.
So this past weekend, I gave myself PERMISSION to do just that. To me, giving MYSELF permission means:
– Not waiting for others to tell me I’m worthy
– Believing in myself and not needing others to validate that I can do this work
This weekend at The Bliss Project I experienced a HUGE SHIFT.
On Day 1, Lori had us call out the story (ies) we’ve been telling ourselves. From “I’m not worthy, I’m not enough, I’m not ____.” We acknowledged them and all the ways they are NOT serving us, and how they are holding us back. Then, chose to rewrite them. So I’m not worthy and I’m not successful changed into, “I AM WORTHY! I AM SUCCESSFUL! and I AM POWERFUL!”
On Day 2, we started off the day physically releasing any leftover shit from our cells and bodies. Various POWERHOUSE guest speakers had us participate in Breath Work and Meditations, that literally had the floodgates opening. Tears were just pouring down our faces.
We ended our day really filling up our cups and empowered each other in some POWERFUL, sacred ways. We told each other what we needed to hear when we were younger, and with a partner spoke the beauty we saw in one another.
I literally feel as though I walked out of the room Sunday evening a WHOLE NEW WOMAN.
In order to really lock in this year’s growth, I decided to try a new practice on. Every day, I journal whatever wins I had. Whether they be micro (small) or MACRO (BIG) ones. I’m documenting it all, from having the courage to have spoken up to a salesperson in a store to SHARING MY COACHING PROGRAM or EVENT with the WORLD!
For me, I go back to Bliss every year simply put, because it makes me HAPPY.
Expanding on it, I LOVE going back to see my beautiful sisters I haven’t seen in a year or more. I LOVE connecting with new, gorgeous souls. I LOVE encouraging and passing on my wisdom to newbies. I LOVE holding space for others’ breakthroughs. I LOVE all the hugs and support I receive.
It’s literally a weekend being in a SAFE, MAGICAL space with 500 other women where you’re encouraged, supported, reminded of your POWER, where EVERYONE wants to SEE YOU WIN.
This space brings us home to our power.
It cultivates tribe, love, growth, FREEDOM and BLISS.
Bliss is HOME ♥
