The Secret to Overcoming Self-Sacrifice

Do you struggle with over-giving to others to the point of resentment?

Does helping others make you feel needed & necessary?

Do you feel angry when the gifts that you give are not reciprocated?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you might be struggling with the self-sabotaging tendencies & fixations of a personality style on the Enneagram known as the “Giver” or “Helper”.

In my last newsletter, I talked about how I overcame perfectionism (which is also a personality style on the Enneagram, a system that I use to help my clients understand the underlying root cause of their thoughts & behaviors).

In addition to overcoming perfectionistic tendencies that used to sabotage me in the past, I’ve also struggled with the self-sabotaging pitfalls of the Giver/Helper.

So what are the defining pitfalls & traits of the Giver/Helper?

According to the Enneagram, this particular personality style typically shows up in the following ways (most of which is often unconscious):

  • Lack of self-identity because they define themselves by what they do for others & by their roles instead of their true feelings.
  • Multiple selves or “chameleons”, adapting to the needs of others in order to be connected. Classic co-dependent.
  • Struggle for personal freedom because they’re controlled by other’s needs; dependency on others will be an issue.
  • Spends all their energy gaining approval and avoiding rejection.
  • Giving is often unconsciously manipulative – they give to get.
  • Over-giving & then angry when it is not reciprocated.
  • Playing the martyr by packaging hostility as love.
  • Hysteria/panic when their own real needs surface & collide with the needs of others.
  • Their need for appreciation turns into a need for approval
  • Matchmaking and networking people
  • An overwhelming need to respond to others & have others respond to them
  • Overemphasis on positive feelings toward others
  • Extremely focused on making oneself needed & necessary

Does any of these apply to YOU??

If the answer is yes, you might be wondering… what’s the secret to overcoming the self-sacrifice that sabotages my life?

The secret is to resolve & heal the deep seated core fear or avoidance that drives the behavior & discover the growth path for becoming your very own hero!

According to the Enneagram model, the basic underlying core fear or avoidance that drive the Perfectionist behavior boils down basically to:

A deep-seated fear of being unloveable, unappreciated, unneeded, abandoned, or rejected.

So you see… the behavior of self-sacrifice arises from the deep-seated fear.

In order to be deemed as “loveable” or “needed” by others, the Giver/Helper will be ultra-focused on helping, giving, & pleasing others in the hopes that their efforts will be rewarded with love, appreciation, & acknowledgement of the gifts they give. THIS is what makes them feel loved & sadly, this is what they struggle providing themselves with, which is where the tendency to be co-dependent rears it’s ugly head!

So what’s the secret to overcoming self-sacrifice?

According to the Enneagram model, here are just a few ideas to help someone struggling with these fears & compulsions:

  • Give up the need (addiction) to live through significant others.
  • Identify and express own needs and feelings.
  • Spend time alone to appreciate yourself apart from others.
  • Utilize anger and panic as a signal of your own needs.
  • Learn to love all instead of a select few.
  • Learn to receive (both from yourself & from others!).
  • Resist the urge to pull others in by flattery and recognize that the need to retaliate is caused by hurt pride.
  • Develop a consistent self that does not alter to please others.

In a nutshell, the overall secret is to learn how to take care of YOU first instead of everyone else at the expense of your soul, sanity, & health.

In addition to incorporating any of the above recommended growth paths, it can also be helpful to find a practitioner who can help you resolve at the root level the cellular memory associated with any of the deep-seated core fears that sabotage your life!

My favorite by far is a well-known healing modality known as The Journey Method® which has helped to heal thousands of people around the world & is something I’ve used to help clients break free of self-sabotage & accelerate their results since 2007.

Regardless of which of these options you choose, working WITH your fear (rather than against it) to heal & resolve past trauma is the key!

After all, what you resist, persists. 🙂

What Raving Fans Are Saying About This Retreat!

“I just wanted to say thank you and that all the things I have been taking away from time with you are so beyond valuable to me. I love the feeling of falling in love with myself again and how you call it the “ripple effect” I can already see so many changes in myself and so many smiles on my whole households faces.” ~ Ursula B.

“I am aglow after our weekend. I am actually just very emotional and so thankful for our experience. I love you all!” ~Jamie H.

“It was the most amazing weekend!” ~Jamie K.

“You all are the best ever! I look forward to the next retreat.” ~ Leslie B.

“I’m in awe of each and every one of you extraordinary goddesses. Just wow’d by this weekend. Much love to you!” ~Charmaine S.

“Gratitude for each one of you and the very spiritually inspired retreat! Namaste.” ~ Elaine B.

“It was a mind and body stretching & reawakening! I am so thankful to Jess, Jamie & Charmaine and all the positive energy that was shared by all the beautiful & wise goddesses!!!” ~ Marcia C.

“I was asked by Jess to cater one of her retreats. I accepted the invitation and went on a Journey I had NO idea I was going on. In my mind I was catering, making food for all the guests and worrying about executing all of it. I was asked to talk about the food and what it means to me………

The trigger went off and I found myself reaching into a place I hadn’t been in a really long time, remembering why I love cooking and why I do what I do and love it. From that moment I realized so much in such a small time frame, like seriously a minute for me to realize that I had let a lot of what makes me happy “go”. I was surrounded by women, or as I like to call them goddesses, they nurtured me and loved me and shared and cared and never was there a moment of judgement, which is something I fear.

Over the weekend Jess and Charmaine helped me dig deep and see the beauty that I am and that I am worth making time to self care for myself, because I haven’t in so long. Jess really helped me see that there is no magic to it, that it is ourselves that have the power to basically make or break us in every way you can think of , emotionally, physically, energetically……. she help me see and guide me to my inner self and see that I had so much love in the past for myself and I kind of left her in this crazy dark lonely closet with nothing to survive on, to the point of it effecting everything and everyone around me, I saw the old, real me and I missed her and was so happy to see her and have made a promise to myself to not put her in that closet again but to make sure she is the center of my room. Meaning putting myself as a priority and loving myself. I am literally falling in love with myself again and it’s one of the best feelings along with my family noticing it and making our family so tight net even more than we were before because of me just being open hearted and taking the tools I already had but with the help of Jess learning how to use those tools….. they are powerful.

I beyond LOVE Jess and everything she has helped me with and continues to help me with. She is so magical with her healing ways that only goddesses maintain. I have never walked away from a doctor, therapist, natural healers of all sorts, feeling this great and like a direction to go…… she’s the real deal and the resources and her network of people around her supply everything you need to love yourself……. like really love yourself. I’m not wanting to sound conceited or big headed like oh I love myself but I know it is truly important to love ourselves and make it a daily ritual and practice to not only make ourselves happy but the ripple effect is amazing and beautiful to see and experience. This is only the beginning and I am beyond stoked for this amazing ride I found the road to again!!

Thank You beyond words Jess for what you do and who you are and the light you shine. Namaste” ~ Ursula Blyth

Why Self-Care Actually Leads to Abundance

Did you know that a dedicated practice of self-care can actually lead to more abundance?

abundance - jianiteo websiteApproximately 10 years ago (before I even knew about the Law of Attraction, manifestation, and abundance), I suffered from a very unhealthy habit known as “self-sacrifice”.

I was good at “giving to others” but not so good at “receiving for myself”.

As a result, I was stressed-out, burnt-out and energetically depleted more often than not.

AND, because I wasn’t consistently taking care of myself, I wasn’t able to foster, build, and grow the energy I needed to attract what I wanted with ease.

As I started to learn about the various energetic laws of the Universe, I realized that by NOT taking care of myself I was inadvertently blocking abundance from coming into my life!

Did you know that there are actually spiritual laws of the universe that aid us ALL in manifesting and attracting what we desire?

AND, did you know that the practice of self-care can greatly enhance this ability?

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about these energetic & spiritual laws and found that there are 3 main components of abundance that must be considered for a person to manifest with more ease and grace.

To help you learn how self-care can actually lead to abundance I’d like to share with you these 3 main components of abundance that I’ve learned, which are as follows:

  1. Your ability to receive. This represents your willingness to receive abundance with gratitude and grace (instead of resistance and unworthiness). With this ability in place you are energetically telling the Universe that you are “worthy” of abundance instead of resisting it’s efforts to bring you what you desire. For example, if someone gave you a compliment, a gift, or a monetary offering would you accept with gratitude and grace? Or would you feel resistant to accepting that gift because you’re worried that the other person wants something in return. Or concern that the compliment, gift, or offering they are giving you is “too much”?
  2. Your ability to build & sustain. This represents your ability to foster, build, and grow any abundance that comes your way. Without this level of self-discipline in place you are energetically telling the Universe that you only want abundance if it’s “easy”. Although manifesting and attracting CAN be easy, it often requires at least some amount of dedication, desire, and effort on your part to for the Universe to know that you are not taking your abundance lightly. For example, are you squandering the abundance (whether it be time, energy, or money) you attract thoughtlessly? Or do you have a schedule, a budget, an investment plan, or a practice of self-care & discipline that helps you build and sustain any abundance you’ve received?
  3. Your ability to reciprocate. This represents your ability to reciprocate and give back others in some way. It also represents your willingness to give back to yourself! It’s important to note that this does NOT need to be immediate reciprocation upon receiving abundance, but rather something that allows you “to pay forward” the abundance you’ve received at a future date and time to a future recipient. This gift could be in the form of time, energy, or money and because the Universe abhors a void, this willingness to pay it forwrad can make you more magnetic to future forms of abundance that come your way.

When we practice all 3 of these components regularly in our life (as it relates to our time, our energy, or our money) it becomes much easier for us to manifest and attract what we desire!

So, why does self-care actually lead to abundance?

First, a self-care practice meets all 3 of the components related to abundance so that you can manifest with more ease and grace!! Here’s why:

  • Self-care represents your willingness to receive your own self-love, health & harmony into your life.
  • Self-care can be a daily/weekly/monthly practice of self-discipline that represents your willingness to foster, build, & grow that self-love, health & harmony.
  • Self-care is the ultimate gift you can give to yourself because it represents your willingness to reciprocate and give back to yourself.

With all of the above in place, not only will you feel great about yourself, your health, AND your life but you will also be activating the Law of Attraction with a much higher vibration and frequency in place!

Which of course, is what leads to our ability to manifest and attract with EASE. 🙂

Second, self-care is nurturing and “feminine” in nature, which is greatly needed to balance all of the “masculine” energy (“doing”, taking action, prioritizing,  etc..) we as humans need to employ in order to meet our daily tasks, priorities, and obligations.

With women especially, operating in our masculine energy all the time can be highly draining and exhausting. A regular self-care practice offsets all the energy we’re putting out and refuels our body, mind, & spirit, allowing us to be more feminine in nature AND even more effective when we do need to be in our masculine energy!

AND, this feminine energy is what allows to just “be” in the moment more easily, helps us go with the flow, has an energy of “allowing” (vs. forcing), and it encourages creativity which are ALL huge components to attracting abundance with more ease!

Third, self-care = self-love, which is considered to be the highest frequency and emotional experience available to us as humans.

In fact, love also vibrates at the same frequency as gratitude which ties in to our ability to “receive” more readily the gifts that each life experience brings.

Not only that, but self-love has the ability to heal old emotional wounds, allows us to have more compassion and patience others, and is ultimately what will result in a change in our external world.

WHY? Because your external world is always a reflection for what’s going on inside. Remember, according to the Law of Attraction, “like attracts like”. 🙂

To see if self-care actually can lead to more abundance for YOU (whether it be more self-love, prosperity, health, happiness, joy, etc…!), consider implementing the following:

  • Pay attention to your willingness to 1) receive, 2) build/foster/grow, and 3) reciprocate in ALL areas of your life for a period of 1-2 weeks. If you find that one of the 3 components is regularly NOT in place, create and implement a simple self-care ritual that will foster/build/grow that missing area for a month and see what changes.
  • Notice how much time you spend in both “masculine” and “feminine” energy mode to see if there’s an imbalance. Free up some time in your schedule so that you can incorporate more “feminine” energy activities (i.e. these would be activities that energize, inspire, delight, empower, or allow you to be more creative!) to balance out all the “masculine” activities that you engage in.
  • On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being extraordinary), rate how much you LOVE yourself. If it’s less than a 10, determine the #1, simplest thing you could do to create change in that area & turn it into a self-care practice for ONE month.

At the end of one month, notice any new forms of abundance that arise in your life as a result of these changes! 🙂

If you’re diligent with these recommendations, you’ll likely notice a difference in how you’re feeling AND how you’re attracting.

Imagine… how much easier would it be to manifest, attract, and create what you desire if you truly loved your self, your health, & your life?!

Self-care is the answer. 🙂

108 Ways to Practice Self-Care

Self-care 1What does self-care mean to you?

After empowering my clients to love them self, their health, and their life for almost 8 years now, I’ve found that self-care is different and unique for everyone.

Sadly, some consider self-care to be selfish or the lowest priority on the list amidst all the daily responsibilities, commitments, and distractions.

In fact, self-sacrificing tendencies happen to be the #1 ego fixation or compulsion that show up in my clients, resulting in self-inflicted bitterness, anger, and resentment that poisons their relationship to self and others.

Worse, I’ve worked with many who are so disconnected from themselves that they don’t even know what energizes, fuels, and inspires them (qualities that I consider to be prerequisites for what could be considered self-care!).

It’s not until these clients realize that self-care is actually the #1 thing they can do in they life that will not only bring them all that they desire, but it will also allow them to show up and contribute to the world from a place of fullness (vs. emptiness and drain).

Not only that but self-care is what allows us to take back control of our self, our health, and our life in a complete and whole  way! 🙂

To give you ideas of what self-care could look like, I want to share 108 ways to practice self-care that just might completely change your life!

The #1 Thing That Will Re-Ignite EVERYTHING You Do!

Wouldn’t it be great if there was just ONE thing you could do to light up EVERYTHING in your life?!

Self Love

For most things in life, a “quick” fix is usually not the right solution. We are complex human beings and transformation is usually something that needs to occur on many different levels.But what if you could make your transformation easier by focusing on just ONE area to start?

More importantly, what if making a change in just this ONE area of your life had a positive ripple effect on EVERYTHING you do?!

Would this make it easier to focus your efforts? Of course it would.

To simplify your focus & re-ignite everything you do, I believe there is ONE thing that will make the biggest difference, which is as follows:

SELF-LOVE

Why would focusing on SELF-LOVE re-ignite everything you do?!

Because pretty much everything you’ve ever created in your life is driven by the thoughts that you think, the emotions that you feel, and the actions you take!

Think about this for a minute.

Each experience you have in life is affected by your thoughts, vibrations, and emotions. Feelings such as judgment, anger, shame, sadness, regret, etc… vibrate at a lower frequency. As humans, we have a tendency to be our own worst enemies, which leaves us operating at a lower vibrational frequency until we can learn how to love ourselves!

AND, because “like attracts like” this means when you are feeling a lower vibrational feeling, you will magnetize people and experiences that are similar to your vibrational frequency. In other words, your environment is a reflection of how you feel inside.

Fortunately, one of the highest vibrations available is that of LOVE (along with enlightenment, peace, joy, compassion, etc…).

So… to re-ignite EVERYTHING that you do, simply become a vibrational match to SELF-LOVE. 🙂

Will this truly work? The only way to find out if becoming a vibrational match to SELF-LOVE re-ignites everything you do, simply challenge yourself over the next 30 days to:

  1. Practice SELF-LOVE as much as you possibly can!
  2. Make decisions based on what feels good, nurtures you, or inspires you!
  3. Pay attention to the ripple effect that your actions have on your life!

I’m willing to bet that EVERYTHING in your life is enhanced when SELF-LOVE is present. 🙂

The 3 Keys to Unlocking Your Greatness for the Holidays

Do you find it difficult to tap into your greatness during the holiday season? Is it hard to enjoy the holidays and your connection with others because you feel sad, irritable, over-worked, or exhausted?

 

GreatnessWouldn’t you rather be someone who absolutely LOVES the holidays because of all the joy, love, and peace that abounds?

Even if this is already you, it always feels good to gain access to greater ways of being. 🙂

This is why I’d like to share a few tips on how to improve your life and “unlock your greatness” for the holidays and beyond!

As most of us have experienced at one point or another, there are many reasons why we might feel sad, irritable over-worked, or exhausted.

The loss of a loved one. End of year deadlines. Not having someone to celebrate with. Missing your family. Not having fulfilling family connection. The busied frenzy in the air. Holiday cooking and cleaning. Too many holiday parties and not enough time.

You get the picture, right?

Now envision a new picture…

What would it be like if this holiday was the most joyful you’ve ever experienced? What if you had heaps of patience and felt deeply loving and kind in your interactions with others? What would it be like if you looked forward to the holiday and the connections that you’ll make? What if cleaning and cooking brought joy and a smile to your face? And what would it be like if you truly loved yourself, your health, and your life even with all the temptation in place?!

All this and more is possible with just 3 simple “keys” that will help you unlock your greatness, not just now during the holidays, but above and beyond…

 

  • KEY#1: Love your SELF. For some this is counter-intuitive because at first glance it may feel like selfishness. However, there’s evidence to prove (from a quantum physics perspective) that how you feel about yourself is often reflected in your environment and those around you. If you want to be surrounded by loving, kind, patient people then you must first be loving, kind, and patient with yourself. How can you do this? Set realistic expectations and boundaries for yourself and with others, drop the self-judgment, forgive yourself, learn from your mistakes, and set new, better goals when you fall off the wagon, just to name a few.
  • KEY#2: Love your HEALTH. This body and vessel that we live in is the only one we will get (in this lifetime!). Taking time out to move and exercise, getting plenty of rest, eating a healthy diet, downtime, joyful activities (without obligation), creativity, alone time, etc… makes it easy it more easy to love yourself AND your life! These also have a positive ripple effect on the physical health of our body, making the body more effective at warding off sickness, thinking more clearly, managing pain more effectively, proper digestion and elimination of one’s diet, etc… AND, it makes it easier for us to manage stress more effectively and access the feeling states we really crave such as loving kindness, gentleness, patience, joy, gratitude, peace, etc…  with far less effort!
  • KEY#3: Love your LIFE. Making choices based on what would bring you joy or make you feel lightest go a long way in helping you truly LOVE your life! WHY? Because you’re giving yourself permission to choose activities that inspire joy, creativity, and the authentic kind connection you really desire, which of course is going to result in LOVING your life! Daily gratitude can also help you appreciate what you might not otherwise see and bring your focus of attention to what’s working (rather than what’s not working). Additionally, knowing who you are, what you stand for, and where you want to BE as you move forward will help you stay strong and in alignment with joy-based living. It will also foster excitement and motivation to keep you moving forward (instead of feeling stuck and stagnant)!

So there you have it. The 3 keys to unlocking your greatness!

As you reflect over the holidays, consider all that you’ve accomplished in 2014. Make a commitment to learn from any mistakes that have been made and be willing to course-correct by setting new and improved intentions for your life in 2015!

And consider this…

If you allowed these 3 keys (or principles) to fully guide your life, what would be different? What would change for the better? How would you feel? Who would you BE? How would your connection with others deepen?

When you take time to answer these questions, I’m willing to bet you’d see that a large majority of things would improve in your life.

Are you willing to love yourself fully no matter what it takes? Are you ready to feel happy, healthy, and whole again? Are you willing to live a bold, courageous life?!

If the answer is yes to these questions, simply do your best to adopt these 3 keys as a way of being (as often as possible!) through the end of the year. Let your actions be in alignment and watch the magic happen! Most importantly, be witness and take note of just how much your life improves.

Here’s to unlocking your greatness! 🙂

Are you ready to break free of suffering & self-sabotage?

Do you want to experience MORE happiness, health, freedom, & success out of life but can’t because of obstacles that sabotage your success?

Would you like to break free of burnout, limitation & self-sabotage? 

Are you finally ready to truly LOVE & HEAL your life?!

Let’s be real. There are times in everyone’s life when burnout, limitation or self-sabotage of some sort impedes one’s efforts & often, it happens at a subconscious level! This is all too common & often very detrimental to our ability to create the life of our dreams.

So WHY do we sabotage our success…?

Often, it’s not even by choice! As we go through life, we have experiences both negative & positive that shape our beliefs, behaviors, & interactions with others.

Who you are NOW is a direct correlation to the conditioning of your past experiences.

Whether you like it or not, the beliefs, behaviors, & interactions of your past & present greatly affect how you choose to handle life lessons & experiences that come your way! Unfortunately, this can show up in the form of sabotage, which can include all of the following & more!

  • Physical Exhaustion & Dis-ease
  • Financial Insecurity & Instability
  • Lack of Passion or Purpose
  • Lack of Connection to Higher Self
  • Negative, Victim-like Mindset Mentality (i.e. pessimism)
  • Unhealthy Emotional Self-Expression
  • Limiting Beliefs
  • Unhealthy Behaviors
  • Unhealthy Life Patterns
  • Phobias
  • Addictions
  • …and many, many more!

Sadly, ALL forms of sabotage keep us from embracing our GREATNESS, living in JOY, & creating the life of our dreams!

The key to eliminating this sabotage (at a cellular level!)is to take PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for your emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, & financial health.

In other words… SELF-CARE.

This is why the Freedom sessions along with the forward-moving Self-Care & Soul Guidance Sessions I offer is such a great way to break free from the sabotage that holds YOU back!

You’ll get support in taking better care of yourself AND be able to free yourself of the blocks & limitations that sabotage you the most at a cellular level!

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could really become the master of your fate & your destiny? What would it be like to master your mindset AND your life?

Well, it’s absolutely possible!

AND that being said… it’s a LOT easier to attain self-mastery when you release what’s no longer serving you first. This is so that you can make room for the new & improved you that you’re trying to create and it’s also is where the science and power of a Freedom Session is critical for your success!

The Science Behind Sabotage

Dr. Candace Pert, a well-known author of Molecules of Emotion & cellular biologist, discovered that whenever we have an intense, powerful emotion that we repress or shut down, specific chemical changes take place in our bodies. These changes can affect certain cell receptors, blocking those cells from communicating with the other cells in our bodies & increasing the likelihood for disease to occur.

Supporting evidence has also been found by Deepak Chopra, M.D. & author of Quantum Healing, who believes that as cells regenerate, cellular memory gets carried into each new generation of cells. If there is a negative life experience that was not resolved or dealt with in a healthy way, the negative imprint in that cellular memory CAN lead to emotional & physical dis-ease in the body over time. It can also put into place the self-sabotage behaviors we engage in to handle many of life’s challenges.

Sabotage & the Law of Attraction

From a quantum physics standpoint, everything is made up of energy. Since the human body is also made up of energy, the frequency we vibrate at varies based on our physical, mental, & emotional state, leading to the attraction of both positive & negative life experiences. The most powerful forms of energy & vibration are our thoughts, feelings, spoken word, & written word so what we think, feel, say, & write in every moment… we become. This has become known as the Law of Attraction.

Our emotional state is a powerful indicator of where we are energetically (or vibrationally) & can be a powerful predictor for what we ultimately attract into our lives. Looking at your own life, consider the following contrasting situations:

  • Pessimists think, feel, speak, & write negatively, creating a reality that brings them more negative life experiences.
  • Optimists think, feel, speak, & write positively, creating a reality that brings them more positive life experiences

One of the key elements to the Law of Attraction working in your favor is to raise your vibrational energy by releasing the conditioning, programming, and patterns that sabotage your success. This will result in the POSITIVE attraction & manifestation of ALL forms of abundance!

So… what’s the sabotage solution?

The Journey Method

Journey LogoA very POWERFUL form of emotional release work through guided meditation, the The Journey Method® was created by a woman named Brandon Bays, who actually healed herself of a tumor the size of a basketball using this work!

The The Journey Method® works at a cellular level, releasing cellular memory from painful experiences in our past.

The experiences that we hold onto or feel pain around are the very memories that put into place any negative emotions, thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, & reactions we exhibit in our present moment.

The key to clearing out these sabotage patterns is to revisit those past experiences in a NEW, healthier way – to gain clarity, wisdom, gratitude, & forgiveness of all that happened so that you can move on & heal you life once & for all!
