We’re working out at the the Wildheart gym today. We’re learning how to sit with all our feelings. We don’t need to act on them. No distracting, no zoning out, no ignoring or pretending that we’re ‘fine’. We’re going to set them free, so we feel lighter, less anxious and there’s more space for joy. Are you ready to work out with me? Let’s go!
Have you been saying ‘I’m fine’ but really you’re not. Maybe you feel like you’re bothering people with your feelings or you worry about what they will think of you if you show them how you really feel. You lie to yourself and that is never a good thing. Okay – we need to talk because your job is to be your own best friend and to make sure that you tell the truth to yourself and be comfortable with how you feel. All of your feelings are welcome and there is nothing ‘wrong or bad’ about any of them. I promise you.
In today’s episode, I’m going to share with you the lies we tell ourselves when we are pretending or hiding our feelings. I’m also going to help you see why you do that so you can stop doing it and instantly feel better. If you don’t feel your feelings, you will get sick. No question and so we really need to learn this stuff at school.
Are you a bookworm who not only loves books, but enjoys getting your creative on and learning some nifty self development tools? Would you like to learn how to have more fun, learning to feel confident & care free with less anxiety. I have a special invitation for you & a free activity guide.
Often we don’t realise that we’re carrying lots of feelings inside our bodies. They build up, but eventually, we melt down. This simple drawing exercise will stop us from big feelings – like anxiety, sadness, fear or anger overwhelming us all at once.
So many times, we are not allowed to feel our disappointment when life doesn’t go our way. Our drawing goes wrong, we lose a sports match, and somebody tries to change the way we feel with trite comments like ‘Nevermind, it doesn’t matter!’ or ‘You can’t win them all – it’s the taking part that counts!’ The thing is: it really does matter to us and if you’d just let us be with our disappointment for a moment, you’d see that we can let go of our feelings when we are ready. We also learn a lot more from our disappointments if we can work out our feelings and we are not rushed to feel ‘fine’ again.
Today we are going to venture into the cave where your anger lives and have a chat with it. We’re going to find out exactly what is going on for you, so you can feel more peaceful in your body again. You’ll be so glad you did!
Have you ever wished you had an off switch for your busy brain? Maybe it worries a lot. Maybe it’s curious and tries to work everything out. Yeah me too. It’s exhausting. Today, we’re going to get creative and draw a remote control for your brain. The good news: there are some bits you are in control of. The bad news: you can’t switch it off. Actually that’s not bad news at all, because when you understand how to use it in the right way, you’ll appreciate what a fine piece of kit it is and how truly blessed you are to have a brain like yours.
Today, we’re meeting 10 sensitive worried children who are super stressed out with life and looking for peace, fun and friendship. Each one is facing a struggle or challenge that is giving them lots of worries and big scary feelings. They’ve kindly agreed to share their stories with you. I believe that when we share our stories it’s comforting to know that we’re not the only one. We’re not alone and there is nothing wrong with us. There is definitely nothing wrong with you! I wonder if you can see yourself in one or more of their stories. Have a listen and let me know.
The blooming daffodils and the birds tweeting tell us that it’s time for a Spring clean. I’m going to teach you how to take out your cosmic hoover and clean your energy field. Even though we cannot see it, other people’s energy really does impact how we feel. Some people leave their negative energy hanging about and it’s up to us to get rid of that. It takes less than 10 minutes and afterwards, you’ll feel so much lighter and brighter. By the way, you don’t need a hoover or any cleaning materials. You just lie down and listen. Easy!

COURAGE CHAT #10 Your Courage Questions – – Why can’t I do it? Why isn’t it working? Is there something wrong with me? What am I doing wrong? I’m going to answer all your questions because whenever life gets tricky, your brain fires up with questions. And I love to help with that. In fact, because I’ve been learning how to do tricky things for over 10 years, I have the answers.
In this special bonus episode, Smiley talks about Release, Reflect and Relax as the 3 stages to get you to Sleepysville without stepping on the worry train. It’s really important that we understand our bodies and know how to take care of them. This is part of loving ourselves and treating ourselves with gentle loving kindness. We need rest after a hard day’s play or school.
