Flow, Adaptation, and the Creative Process of Manifestation.

lmb14.png

Today I woke to an invitation from the Universe to practice flow.  It was awesome, because it was our You Matter International "Coffee Talk" guest telling me she was going to need to reschedule, and oh do I get that, as I myself was in the not feeling so well life is cancelled place a few weeks back.

I thought, well, I know something awesome is going to happen, what will we do and create instead?  Then I saw the post I had already pre-qued to go out in our You Matter International Facebook group:  "Flow is energy in motion. So you have to become the embodiment of energy in motion- that is, flexible, fluid, and fast on your feet."

From this space came a presentation and conversation unfolding on the process of flow and how it relates to the context of the creative process.  I share about the stages of creation as spelled out by Dr. Thurman Fleet in Concept Therapy and how a few of those stages offer the invitation for flow as both adaptation and ultimately as a kind of cosmic, or, love consciousness.

Join us in the conversation right here!  (And, join our community for invitations to future coffee talks, like, our now "Women's Empowerment, Women's Pleasure" happening on Valentines Day morning, 9:30-10:30 pst). 

Wanna go deeper with us? Join the My Love Bomb Program if you live in Denver, Napa, Oakland, Tacoma, or Portland or bring it to your city by joining the 2018 My Love Bomb Program Facilitator Training.  Registration closes February 2nd, 2018 and the journey begins.

The Self-Compassion and Self-Responsibility Dance

Self-CompassionorSelf-Responsibility?.png

When we hit the road on the personal growth path, we are often faced with paradox.  

I happen to think it’s because we live in a paradox world.  Want to feel joy?  Gotta know what pain is.  In fact, have to be willing to feel both.  You get it.

Today I want to touch upon the paradox of self-responsibility and self-compassion.

I’ve been deep diving of late into the book “The Little Money Bible” after our December You Matter International Money Mindset workshop.  In fact, I’m having fun sharing a quote a day inside of our You Matter International FB group in order to keep meditating on quotes from it this month.

One quote in particular says “I hope you will see that in some instances, compassion can be described as the manifestation of love in action.  And that money is, in part, the fuel by which you express greater compassion- by transcending a poor self-image, loving yourself, being there for others; and by being grateful for the immense gift that has been bestowed upon you, the first and greatest gift you will ever receive- the gift of life.” - Stuart Wilde, The Little Money Bible

Ah!  I love looking at money, and receiving it, in connection with the practice of self-love and self-compassion.  In another part of the book however, he shares that “people now realize that they are responsible for their own empowerment.  They see that taking responsibility is a spiritual act; it allows each one the freedom to become more.  Accepting responsibility is an uncomfortable thing, for within that idea is the birth of the true individual.”

Ultimately then, our abundance or lack thereof, is part of accepting our responsibility for where we are at in the world.  And taking responsibility sounds great, until you become a victim of something atrocious, or you get diagnosed with that illness, or you are simply born into rotten circumstances.

So how do we honor our victimhood to life while looking to claim our wholeness, our healing, our empowerment?  

I think that it lies in accepting a metaphysical responsibility for where we find ourselves now, as conscious adults, in life, because it is from here that we can then find the empowered view that brings us the traction to move into a renewed state of living. It is then that we can claim our power in life so as to move forward with forgiveness, love, strength, and wisdom.  From there we can then truly live life with joy, abundance, and loving relationships.  

You might ask then how do I rectify becoming fully self-responsible for where I am in my life, with money and with health and with all of the things, while also having heaps of loving self-compassion for what has come about? Can I lovingly accept my imperfections, my falls, my moments of victimhood and my moments as perpetrator in order to be more fully human?  A human capable of being a bigger vehicle for real love, which sees all, accepts all, and chooses to embody and gift big heapings of acceptance to the world?  

I think that holding a very loving and compassionate dose of self-responsibility is key to claiming a fulfilling life.  Maybe in fact, it’s totally an expression of self-love to accept self-responsibility (empowerment) for being able to be with life as it is.  And from as it is, we can then steer our life towards that which we want to create, all while holding huge heaps of self-love and self-compassion for the as-isness of life now.

I love that the quote on self-compassion in The Little Money Bible actually would then imply that by holding that, we actually align more to loving flow, and ultimately to gratitude and amplification of the metaphysical attraction energy that will bring more of what we are wanting into our lives.

So maybe heaps of self-responsibility (empowered view) and self-compassion can help us to bring about more loving joy in the world, manifest as action, energy, and money, that we can then spread around for the good of life!

This is certainly my mission, and I am grateful for the many of you who are aligned on this path!

Here is to a year of heaps of loving self-compassion, coupled with intentional alignment to the flow of love and divine expression in life as our Love Bomber selves.  Here is to the amplification of love in action, of connection, of healing.  Love really is brave isn’t it?

When Good Change is Scary, Keep Going

"You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore." - Andre Gide.

One of the most transformational experiences of my life was sailing out to the open ocean and losing sight of the shore for the first time, knowing I'd see land two weeks later. This was pre-internet connections! Watch if you need a trust the process pep talk, a few new ideas to understand your own change process (pain, discomfort, fear, muck), and encouragement for a loving container in the process.

The Healing Power of Unconditionally Loving Acceptance in a Group

Hi!  It's Rhea and to those of you amazing people who just joined in on this newsletter list through the Open Hearted Life Challenge and Mile High, welcome!  I am so happy to bring you content that inspires, connections, and encourages healing.

To those who didn't just join, I'm back!  I have to say, I apologize for being out of touch for a moment there!  Between hosting the Open Hearted Challenge which a lot of you were a part of, and preparing to head out to Mile High in Colorado to present to the conference, my hands were really full.

It's been a powerful month of healing, landing in the heart, and connecting with incredible people.  The conference in Colorado was very heart touching as I got to be with so many others who are dedicated to touching people's lives for the better.

I presented on three things:  1.  That you are enough as is.  2.  The healing power of "Awe" (getting small to find your big), and 3. The healing power of coming together into an empowered community dedicated to unconditionally loving acceptance.

Number three isn't easy to sustain, but wow is it incredible to create and live in for the times that we can.

We are coming close to the healing container that is the My Love Bomb Program running September 11-November 3rd, and it is set as a healing space for women to come together in total acceptance as they open up to their core empowered truth, finding their unique voices, and giving those to life.  

We have groups filling up in Arcata, Oakland, S. San Francisco, Tacoma, Denver, and Napa with more to come in February.    To join one of those, head right here.

We also have incredible women joining in from a distance as prospective facilitators looking to go through profound growth themselves, while bringing the program to their community in 2018.  If you are interested in that path, reply to this email and let's be sure to talk soon as registration closes September 8th.

Thank you for being a part of this greater "You Matter" community!  If you'd like to engage with our group, head over and join us on Facebook. 

I'm happy to be connecting with more and more of you over there, and have plans brewing for more fun and connection with you there.

Big Love to you!

Rhea

Done Is Better Than Perfect (Imperfect Steps Lead to Results and Refinement)

Hi There!  It's Rhea here!  Whew!  I have been go-fight-win in getting us ready to launch the registration for the My Love Bomb Program and the Prospective Facilitator's Path and as such I have missed connecting to you all for a few weeks!

I'm back and I'm excited to be heading into the next steps towards getting to connect with all of you more in person.  I've got the You Matter International Facebook Group opened up and slowly growing as we head into July where I'll be launching an Open Hearted Life Challenge for us all to do together.

Meanwhile, here we are.  Done is Better Than Perfect.  I'm not sure if it's my life experience, or becoming a mommy, but embracing this principle has become liberating on so many levels.  Dropping the expectation of self-perfection, letting go of that inner critic's grip, and therefore also becoming way easier on those in my life, has been life changing.  It enhances my relationship with myself, has exploded my soul fulfilling relationships within my life, and is a huge source of happiness and love magic inside of my family.

Have a look!

Love,

Dr. Rhea 

You Can't be in Growth and in Protection at the Same Time

Hi There!  Rhea here with a topic close to my heart.

The truth is, no matter where you are in life, if you are open to the fact that life is actually a cyclical process of renewal, which means change, then you, like me, vacillate between embracing that process of growth, and shuttering from it in protection.

While I believe that the models of nature provide us with the realities to harmonize with, versus battle, which means protection is a part of our lives for a reason, I also know as a chiropractor that the ramifications of living in protection (constant fight or flight nervous system response) mean that it is not a system we were designed to live in full time.

Bruce Lipton, Cellular biologist, also looks at how our bodies can't thrive in growth on a cellular level while they are busy in protection chemistry.

For this reason, it is imperative to create life strategies for noticing the fear, handling it, and then moving forward in trust of our growth choices, especially during the bigger "chapter changes" of our lives!

Hopefully this video is a little inspiration in that direction for you!  And,...looking forward to launching our virtual community soon for more connection and support on this topic.

Love,

Rhea

The Power of an Empowered Community

It's Rhea here and this week I'm thinking a lot about the power of Faith in oneself, and in another human being.  We've been focusing on it as facilitators in our My Love Bomb  Program facilitator training.

It is incredible to me how much more I can shine in the light of faith from another person, than in the shadow of doubt.

I find this to be powerful both one on one with others in my life, as well as in community.

I am very excited to be able to engage more in community with YOU, my virtual community with an upcoming launch of the "You Matter International" FB Group.  I have some fun invitations planned for a summer launch where I can begin to get more into circle with those of you engaged right here!

Stay tuned for a June launch.

Meanwhile, have faith, in yourself, and someone else.  Sometimes this requires forgiveness, and discernment, and yet even within that paradox, faith heals.

Love, Rhea

From Envy to Inspiration

Hi All!

Okay, I loved getting to ponder this one!  And, I loved that the question came from our community.  When I was asked how I deal with Envy I got to really think about this natural method of being able shift into Inspiration.

Since we are creative beings, almost all of us can say there are things we admire in others that we just don't feel we have developed or created yet in our own lives.  Being able to shift into inspiration is just one way to handle this feeling.

 

Dream It, Wish It, Do It

Do you hold a dream in your heart of what you want to create?  In my experience, you can create profound results in the direction of your dreams by taking on step at a time.

I created "The Balanced Life" course as a simple way to move in this direction.  You can sign up at www.BlossomLife.com

Yay! My life/body/relationship/friendship is falling apart! (Said nobody, ever.)

Hi There!

It's Rhea here with this week's Love Bombers podcast episode.  Today I'm speaking after a re-inspiration from the review of a talk that I gave back in 2013 at The Wave, a large chiropractic event.  

You can actually watch it right here (note the start gives a vision of where I initially set out to go with the film, and while Oscors didn't end up our path, lol, all of that determination certainly led me here to the My Love Bomb path and what an inspiring discovery it continues to be!)

The primary theme is, what happens when something in our life feels like it is falling apart?  How can we find our ground, and then choose a viewpoint that will assist us in building the next steps of our lives?

"Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction." -Pablo Picasso (as seen on Restoration Hardware's construction site!).

Wishing everyone a huge dose of springtime inspiration for the budding next chapters of your lives, no matter what reorganization might be occurring!

Big Love,

Dr. Rhea Zimmerman Komarek

 

What is your Fulfillment Recipe?

Hi Love Bombers!  This past week I had an awesome experience getting to host the local Napa You Matter Meetup Chapter, and after the event, a woman approached me to ask how in the world I keep staying dedicated to continue building this Love Bomb movement day after day after day.

She got me really pondering how to answer her, and, I realized, there is a magic formula for me of knowing what it is that fulfills me, combined with doing the things that help me create those moments.  Since defining success in this way, vs. a random "must get big audiences," "must get lots of likes," "must gain massive approval" goal that leads, well, mainly to that aching feeling of never succeeding.

Here I spell out some ideas for anchoring into fulfillment, as I make my way towards designing a more in depth free online course!

Here is to wishing you massive fulfillment in your Love Bomber efforts!

Big Love,

Rhea

P.S.  Did you know that we are actually expanding into cities as we speak with the You Matter Meetups?  It is my mission that everyone reading this blog will have a spot to go with other like minded women.  Okay, sorry, for you men, someday we'll be able to build your chapters too!  Meanwhile I'm happy to serve you here as I know these topics are major relevant for you too.

Building Renewal by Being Here Now

Go to this link, place the Breathe Love album in the cart, and use promo code MyLoveBombGift to get the whole album for free through March 14th, 2017!

Are you ready to anchor to an empowered mindset? (My gift!)

Screen Shot 2017-03-02 at 11.12.10 AM.png

Hi There!  I have been recently falling back in love with the audio set I created called "Breathe Love."  They are such powerful tools for anchoring into a positive and empowered mindset for looking at life as it is now, and building life as we want it to be.

It takes so much courage to be in life as it is now when you know deep in your heart you have other aspirations for how you want to be, feel, and do in your life.  These tracks help in that journey, and, I have wildly decided to gift the entire album, for free, no strings attached, through March 14th, 2017.

If you are reading this during that window then hooray!  Head right to this link:

http://www.mylovebomb.com/breatheloveaudios/breathe-love-album

Add the album to your cart and then enter promo code:  MyLoveBombGift

You will get the download of the album entirely for free!

Wishing you love, joy, and an empowered view.

Gamechanger Design: Quick Fix or Delayed Gratification?

If you are like me, you have definitely gotten into going for quick fixes, in fact, the more urgent the desire for change often means the higher desire for a quick fix/magic bullet.  The reality I have learned (the hard way) over time is that most of the time, if something seems to good to be true, it often is.  So, what is the alternative?  Focusing instead on the feel good of knowing you are taking small but steady steps, in the right direction, so that a year from now you can look back and say, wow, that was crazy-effective.  Almost like a magic bullet :)

What are your game changers for 2017?

Hi There, it's Rhea here.  Happy 2017!  

This message is inspired by the time that I took with my husband to look at 2016 and celebrate our favorite moments.  What I didn't expect, is that as we looked at the growth, change, highlights, and evolutions that occurred for us on personal levels and as a family we realized that there were these "game changer" moments that occurred through a combination of our hope, faith, and courage.

We tried new things, and those new things led to physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing and growth.

I know that it can take a lot of hope, change, and courage to take a step out to try to make improvements, especially the longer challenges have been going on.

This conversation is a boost to encourage you to go for it with mapping out your dreams so that you can look back on 2017 and see that you stepped out and created the game changers to build the vision you dream of.

In celebration of the power of game changers, I'm also making Love Bomb free for the month of January when you sign up on the home page of this site right here:

After Winter Will Come Spring, Part 1

Hi There,

The looking to nature theme continues with this one as I take a look at our placement in life in relationship to the rhythm of the seasons, both in a "where we are in life right now" feeling as well as a way of orienting to the phenomenon of "winter", "spring", "summer", and "fall" in our own lives and bodies.

Next week I will be back with Part 2, as we take a look at how we can steer the tone of the budding new season in our lives and bodies by creating an environment of nourishment for our changing lives and bodies to grow into.

Big Love!

Dr. Rhea
