You might even be a lucky one that has wonderfully thoughtful family or friends. Even so, your family and friends can give you offers, gift-vouchers and offer help, but until you actually say “YES, it’s time for me to invest in ME now,” nothing will happen.
These two videos I shot for you last week are after I had a hair-salon blow-dry leading up to an event, and an incredible Massage/ Chiro/Physio session.
I often am running out the door before events wishing I had made the effort to get up earlier and blow-dry my hair. This is rarely a priority for me, but it was an absolute joy to give myself the gift of a blow-dry the day before my recent retreat, so I would wake up with beautiful hair, and save time getting ready. (haha, check out my funny hairflick at the start) So I’m committing to great hair by my hairdresser before all important events.
And then after the amazing retreat I gave myself the gift of a massage session to decompress the body and calm the mind. It totally blissed me out, you’ll see in the video below. I was going to edit it, but I thought watching my slow breathing and spaced out massage talk might inspire you to go, or at least make you laugh!
The incredible thing is, in the session I was focussed on allowing myself to step back into my identity as a WOMAN, and LOVER, not just Mother, Wife, BossLady, Coach and General Fixer of Problems.
That night my incredible husband treated me to another massage, (I wasn’t about to stop him, cause it was soo good!) and to put it mildly, my intention I’d held for the session came to fruition that night. (wink, wink)
In order to juggle the many roles that we do, we MUST carve out self-care time that is not just about going to the gym. To truly give back to ourselves and fill up our cup, so that we have space and capacity to relax into the feminine energy of Woman & Lover. If we lose our identity as a Woman and as a Lover, in between work calls, meetings, breastfeeding, nappies, and rocking babies to sleep, then eventually our relationship will suffer, and we will lose core parts that make us whole. We will lose our ability to relax into receiving pleasure and fun in our lives, and that’s when we can become “brittle” and snappy.
She started cutting up her fruit instead of biting it whole. She stopped wearing perfume and celebrating what only women can celebrate. She let the day-to-day become her cause, and she drugged her inner activist with conformity. She stopped circulating her wishes. She forgot. She forgot that:
if she fully admitted to her desire,
if she leaned back on the universe,
if she opened her heart, and her eyes, and then her legs
the power of her truth would come rushing in.”
– Danielle LaPorte
I challenge you to commit to an extravagant act of self-care this month!!! Post your commitment below. I’d love to hear all about it!
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
