6 Ways I Continue to Unlock My Full Creative Potential

What we learn, what we do, what we say is not by choice but always by chance. It is fate. It is destiny. It is creativity, the lifeline of the advancement of so many of the things we know and love today. I had a friend ask me, “how do you go to work, be creative every day, and still find the time to come home and do the same?” I pondered on the question for a while, and then it came to me, I don’t find the time, the time finds me. My creative inspiration lives within me daily. I may not always be inspired to create. Sometimes I create crappy shit, but it has always been there and always will be.

Four Things I Am Currently Loving

Lately, my dear friend and I Gabrielle have been having some of the most inspiring and affirming conversations. We’ve discussed life transitions; career moves and all the drinks and fun we are going to have when we travel to meet up really soon. One of the most important things that have come from our daily talks is me always choosing to honor the things in life that I love. One of the things I took note of recently is how common it is now for people to highlight or magnify the things that they dislike.

The Realization of Life’s True Importance

I love the transitional phases that the moon goes through. They’re a constant reminder that we too, transition, evolve and have many opportunities to shed layers to become better versions of ourselves. The last few months have been spiritually awakening. The lessons from the universe have felt less trying lately. I’ve learned to no longer be resistant to life and the changes that come with it. As the currents flow, I’ve learned to flow with them gracefully.

Course Correcting to More Intetional Ways of Living and Being

Friday, I sat in a meeting with a coworker. She was telling me how she was invited somewhere but didn’t really want to go. I asked her why would she go? Why waste time, money and energy on an experience you’re going to regret later? There’s this thing about living intentionally. Something that I honor, value and commit to daily. If I do not feel called to do it, I don’t. If I do not feel called to spend it, I won’t. If I feel called to disconnect my energy from a specific person, place or thing, I will.

A Letter of Truth

This past full moon was a pivotal one for me. I found myself in the space of not wanting any contact with anything that wasn’t in direct connection to my personal life. I was ready to unplug and retreat for a few days. Before the full moon, I had been feeling this heavily, but I ignored it as much as could until I couldn’t anymore.

Get Out of Your Own Damn Way

Can you believe we’ve made it to the second month of the year? It’s such a beautiful time energetically to begin the month with a new moon. Everything about life feels free and optimistic. I wish I could tell you all that I’ve made a massive list of plans for this month and the coming months to follow. I haven’t. One thing I’ve committed to in 2019 is going with the flow.

Live Bodly, Know Thyself

There’s been a wide-spread discussion lately as we settle into the new year. The focus has been on self and a lot of us discovering who we truly are to our core. I learned that when I am not functioning as myself in my everyday life, I feel imbalanced, off centered almost. This is an energy commonly defined as being out of alignment.

Failure Isn't A Loss It's A Lesson

When I first started blogging it started with whoisamberjanae.net.  I had no idea that it would be a flop and that I'd have to start all over from scratch a few years later. When I found the courage to release my first book in 2013, I had no idea that it would take years following the original release for me to perfect the writing and get it to where it is today. Even STILL it isn't a fraction of what I want it to be. Still growing, still learning. But does that mean I've actually failed?

Your Self-Care Should Always Be Your Biggest Investment

As you all know, I am a HUGE advocate for self-care. My journey to fully embrace myself over the years has been a difficult one. Not only did I have to fall in love with everything about me, but I also had to learn to release the desire to put other people’s happiness before my own. I've always been a giver, it's in my nature. I had to learn that giving too much of yourself to those who don't reciprocate your energy only ends in failure.

Everything You Need To View Your Life In a Broader, More Positive Perspective

Our perspective of our life has so much to do with where we are and where we are going. There is a great deal of us who spend our whole lives searching for our true selves through external forces. We attempt to try and find ourselves through jobs, different schools and the worst of all, other living beings. I’ve learned to embrace that what is true of me and for me can never be found in anything or anyone, but me.

Fear free, Clarity and All That Other Shit. My November Newsletter

Brace yourself, this month’s newsletter is long winded, but oh so worth it. First of all, is it really November? The year is nearly coming to an end, and I honestly do not know how to feel about it all. 2018 has been an incredible year for me thus far. Not because I received anything special or achieved anything significant. It’s just been great because I finally perfected the craft of getting out of my own way. I

3 Harsh Truths About Your Personal Growth That No One Tells You

There was a time in my life when pain was my natural state of being. Darkness was comfort. It actually felt completely normal for me to be unhappy or unsatisfied all of the time. I reveled in dysfunction by choosing to entertain inharmonious, unhealthy relationships. These were things that were comfortable for me. I battled with depression for many years. It was actually very difficult for me to not think about or attempt suicide.

How to Attract Abundance In Your Everyday Life

One of the first questions I always ask myself is “How are you receiving?” In other words, what I am doing to attract bigger and better things in my life. In my opinion Abundance doesn't always equate to material possessions. I like to make sure my soul is balanced enough to receive the right people, and opportunities. I want to be sure that my mind is clear enough to be receptive to the right channels that are going to help bring an abundance of creativity and ideas to propel me forward career-wise.

Gossiping??? Here's How To Stop That

The other day I was conversing with an acquaintance, during our random small talk, the conversation took a hard left. The person I was speaking to had began to discuss someone else very distastefully. The entire conversation made me uncomfortable. Instead of calling this person out on their shit, I abruptly ended the conversation without giving a response. I didn’t feel the need to carry the conversation any further.

Stop Absorbing Other People's Negative Energy and Claiming it As Your Own

Taking inventory of the people we allow in our personal space is so important. How are you protecting your energy when it comes to investing your time into others? Are you monitoring what you’re allowing into your personal space? Often, when we’re dealing with individuals who are full of negative energy we ignore it because in most cases it’s someone we love deeply. But does the love we have for others mean neglecting ourselves?
