How Authentic Are Your Words?

Have you ever wondered what your words were really saying?  I know I’ve had my fair share of times when I’ve wondered how authentic I’m being.  Your words are power and they can change your world if you know how to connect with them. I learned how to surrender and the impossible suddenly became possible!  Ready to know what your words are saying?

It’s been a whirlwind of excitement around here!  I’m thrilled to share the video interview I did with Becky Walsh from Heal Your Life.  We talked about my video, ‘The Power of Words’ and how grace can be a part of our lives to bring things forward that we never thought possible; to open doors we thought were closed forever; and to embrace the best parts of human nature that we sometimes feel the need to hide.

We talked about recognizing the inner child within us all that carries around the burdens of society and the life events that hold us back and stop us from following our bliss.

 

 

In my book, Change Your Words, Change Your World, I’ll take you through how YOU can rewrite the path you’re on and change the script of your life.  There’s a power in your words that has yet to be tapped into and I can help you connect with the creative force of your words to evoke a rich, original and authentic life.

What does success mean to you?  What does a serene life mean to you?  Are you ready to Change Your Words to Change your World?

The moment I realized I was living by somebody else’s definition of success was such a huge eye opener.  I had what most consider a ‘successful career’ with all the bells and whistles yet I didn’t like who I was.  Thus begins the journey to discover my true, authentic self by following my heart, going within and listening to my own internal conversation; the words I had ignored or dismissed until then; the words I needed to hear.

After surrendering to grace and letting it carry me, change began to come forth through inspiration and goals that previously seemed out of reach were now reachable.  Taking the leap, surrendering to grace and embracing the raw power that fuels our words brings about the beautiful change in our worlds and lives.

What are your words saying?  Are your goals in reach?  Do you like who you are? Are you listening?  If you’ve answered ‘no’ to these questions, then it’s time for you to surrender!  Let me help you Change your Words so you can Change Your World!

All my Best!

Andrea

Is Self-Sabotage keeping you trapped and feeling unhappy?

Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 12.54.36 PM

None of us live a “perfect” life. Life is not meant to be perfect; it has it’s extreme highs and the lowest lows all on its own. We don’t need any internal help. There are times, though, that we tell ourselves we aren’t good enough, there is no way WE can do THAT, it’s impossible, no way. Why would we do that to ourselves when we spend so much energy fighting off these same remarks from the world? Self-sabotage is something so many of us have become accustomed to that we’ve grown numb against the pain.

On your daily walks, meditations, or coaching sessions you should cleanse yourself from these internal self-sabotaging ideas. We are creations that can do so much good for the world that we need to push away the negative, harmful ideas away from us and spread only good, hope, love and kindness. That is not to say that these thoughts won’t creep in from time to time even with the most diligent practice, but the more you practice the easier it will be to look into your own reflection standing tall feeling powerful and in control of your life.

I have created a FREE Video Training on the 3 symptoms of Self-Sabotage that are keeping you trapped and unhappy. Come on over and sign up now and get your Video Training or schedule a FREE Strategy Session with me. Visit: http://www.andreagardner.co.uk/.

You deserve to be happy, healthy, and loved by you first and foremost. Let me help you along your journey to becoming the best possible you that you can become. You deserve it!

3 Realistic Steps to a Happy Ending

Some of the best stories are those that have never been told.

Example?

‘One day I’m going to…’ or ‘When I retire there’ll be enough time to…’

We all tell ourselves stories most of the time. They give us a handle on our world. One of my current favourites is: ‘When I’m fit enough I’ll be able to beat my husband at tennis.’ I’m recovering from an abdominal operation which makes walking to the end of the driveway a challenge. So even this sounds like an impossible dream right now. But it’s how I keep myself motivated to walk for 5 minutes extra every day.

And that’s a good thing while it remains an achievable goal which I’m gently committed to.

But what happens when the dream becomes pure fantasy and gets stored just out of reach on an inner shelf, alongside all the other dusty ‘if onlys’? It will soon start to take up valuable energy and taunt me into a vague sense of dissatisfaction.

The common thread that runs through these types of stories is the word ‘enough’. And it’s a word we tend to play fast and loose with. ‘When I get enough time, space, money, love, exercise…’ Whatever the commodity it feels like there’s not enough of it in the here and now.

And that’s sad. Because ‘enough’ is not a word that can ever be defined by a dictionary or even another person. It’s a quantity or quality that we need to determine ourselves.

Unless we change our relationship with the concept of enough we’ll keep pushing it out there ahead of us into never-never land.

So how do you rewrite the story you’re telling yourself and give it a happy ending?

I’ll be covering this topic in much more depth in a workshop I’ll be hosting at the Mind Body Spirit Festival in London’s Earl’s Court next Sunday, 25th May and I’d love to see you there. But if you can’t make it, here’s the summary:

1. Decide there is already enough of whatever it is you feel you’re lacking. You’re a child of the Universe! There will always be enough time, money, love and opportunity once you fully commit to something. But it will only ‘magically’ happen once you commit to it.

2. Take one step at a time. You’ve no doubt heard this before but breaking your happy ending into bite size chunks really helps avoid overwhelm. The steps can be as small as you like – remember you’re the storyteller.

When I was writing my first book, Change Your Words, Change Your World  I would imagine my first book signing in vivid detail. I’d tune into the excitement and energy around the event and picture queues of smiling people holding my book. Then I’d look backwards in time from that end point and ask my mind to describe all the necessary steps I’d taken to get there. Like finding an agent, a publisher, an editor. Writing a blurb. Creating an overall structure for the book and each chapter. And finally I would think about how many words I could realistically commit to writing every day. When you do this, start really small – even 100 words a day soon mounts up – because you can always scale up if you need to. The important thing is to make it easy on yourself.

3. Be your own best friend. Every time you hit a deadline/lifeline, throw a private party! Do a little victory dance in your living room. Give yourself a high five or a hug. Reward your genius with something that makes you happy. Appreciate and express thanks for all the ways in which you have – and are – enough. Within a very short time you’ll start to notice that the extra time, money, love and opportunities magically become available to you.

And that’s it. Three easy steps towards a happy ending. Thanks for staying with me and I hope it helps! As always I’d love to hear your stories…
