Why I Sent Myself Romantic Messages

As a coach, part of my work is to make suggestions to my clients. I like to give a bit of homework in some of our sessions to help with letting go of expectations so they can begin to feel better about their current romantic situation. One of my favorite things I recommend to them is this: Give yourself that which you are seeking from others. I know this can sound less than helpful because there are certain things you simply can’t give yourself because it doesn’t feel the same, right?!

Meditation - The Good, the Bad and the Scary of starting

When I was first experimenting with mediation, it was rough! My first minutes of silence with myself ended with me bawling on the floor of my living room thinking I was crazy. This is NOT how people talk about meditating so I though there was something seriously wrong with me. I hope to bring you a bit of comfort if you are in the beginning stages of this journey and I encourage you to keep going! Your life will open up if you keep pushing through. Please share in the comments below how your mediation practice started! I'd love to hear your experiences and so would those who are just starting out. With Love, Laura Smilski Holistic Love and Lifestyle Coach Luminousliving.ca

The awkwardness is self-sabotage and will keep us stuck in the pain we need to heal. Sometimes all we need is a little support to bust right through that wall and get us on our way. I hope this video supports you in your journey. Also, there's a special announcement about my upcoming workshop on October 1st!
