Inspire with Yas | Therapist ๐Ÿ’ซ  Your daily drop of magic๐Ÿ’Ž ๐Ÿ‘‹ A heart-centred space reminding you of what's possible ๐ŸŒป I inspire you towards self-celebration, positivity & fufillment

YOU ARE WORTHY NOW
Have you found yourself saying: โฌ‡๏ธ
.
"I'll feel good enough when I've accomplished this..."
.
"I'll feel good enough when I'm in a relationship..."
.
"I'll feel good enough only when I achieve the job position of..." .
.
โžก๏ธTrust me. This sense of lack of worthiness and not feeling good enough is something I struggled with for so long and I have so many clients that come to me for the exact same reason. .
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ But I major lesson I've learnt is that if you don't believe that you're good enough NOW at the stage you are currently at- you will never feel good enough or worthy no matter what you "achieve". .
.
Why? ๐Ÿค”
Because we will continiously seek and look for something outside of ourselves to make us feel like we're enough. When the power is truly all within us.
.
๐Ÿ– So let this be a little reminder to take your own power back. You are good enough and worthy NOW just as you are #dailydropofmagic

EMOTIONAL ROCK BOTTOM .
.
๐Ÿ’ช Allow your setback to become your BEST comeback .
.
Many of us have stages in our lives where we hit such a low point, an emotional rock bottom. It's those moments when we learn our biggest lessons which transform us the most.
.
โœจI want to share with you what I say and affirm to myself when I feel this way (which I have multiple times!)
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Affirm to yourself: "No matter what I'm going through now, I'm growing. This is an opportunity to create and become the best version of myself"
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Remind yourself that you are not falling apart...you're FALLING INTO PLACE. You are excatly where you need to be.
.
๐Ÿ™ I only hope this daily drop of magic is helpful for you as this simple mindset and outlook shift certainly helped me ๐ŸŒผ#dailydropofmagic

๐Ÿ”ฎDO YOU BELIEVE IN MAGIC?๐Ÿ”ฎ
.
๐ŸŒ  As a child I always believed in magic. And I strongly believed in fairies. OH YES you read that right I said FAIRIES. Laugh at me all you want but hey I'm being completely honest ๐Ÿ˜‚
.
I believed that life was magical. I had such a massive imagination and spent so much of my time day dreaming in my own little dream world. .
.
Don't worry, I'm not saying for you to believe in fairies, unicorns and wizards ๐Ÿฆ„
.
...but I've found that in society we get so caught up with the 'practical' and 'logical' side of things. We only accept the things that make SENSE. Not much focus on play and giving space to embrace our IMAGINATION ๐ŸŽ‡
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Give yourself space to let your imagination and dreams run wild. Dance, play and embrace the magic of life. .
.
๐Ÿคนโ€โ™€๏ธ I always get my best ideas when I daydream.
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ And HEY reminding yourself of your those dreams you once had as a child might help you get CLEAR with your goals now to make this REALITY. Anything is possible ๐ŸŒŒ
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ So I'm going to continue believing in the magic of life ๐Ÿ”ฎWHO'S WITH ME? ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ#dailydropofmagic .

LACK OF MOTIVATION? ๐Ÿ˜ฃ
โŒDo you have days where you're just NOT feeling it?
.
โžก๏ธ So can I be honest? I used to believe that I would get to this place and stage where it would be SO EASY for me to BE and STAY motivated. That I would wake up every single day ready to take on the world, jump out of bed super motivated ready to exercise and get things done.
.
๐Ÿ‘‰REAL TALK- I hardly EVER feel this way.
.
I thought people who did had this great ability or power within them that made them this way. That they were "born" with natural sense of motivation and "its just who they are"..(silly I know but it's the truth!) But I was SO WRONG. This was my fixed mindset speaking. .
.
๐Ÿ’กThe more I learnt, I realised that we ALL have mental resistance and have days when we find it hard to be motivated.
.
โœ–But it's not feeling the lack of motivation that's the issue here. It's GIVING into it and giving up rather than PUSHING PAST it.
.
๐Ÿ”น๏ธMake the decision that even though you don't feel motivated and your mind has come up with a MILLION excuses on WHY you shouldn't do what you need- say NO in your mind (even outloud!) and commit to PUSH past these thoughts and resistance.
.
๐Ÿ’ช Feel the mental resistance and push through it anyway. You will feel 100000% times better and accomplished when you have ๐Ÿ™Œ #dailydropofmagic

"WHY ME?" "IT'S NOT FAIR"
.
I'M GUILTY ๐Ÿ™Œ Of what you might ask?
.
โžก๏ธ Well for many years, I used to have a victim mindset. What's that? It's a mindset that when things went wrong or happened to me, I would automatically feel sorry for myself and be consumed with "WHY ME" thoughts. .
.
โžก๏ธ Yes I believed everything happened for a reason YET to be completely honest- most times I failed to see the lesson in each setback or hardship I went through.
.
๐Ÿ’ก When I brought my attention to this, I realised WOW I'm making myself pretty miserable with this mindset ๐Ÿ˜ฃ If everything TRULY does happen for a reason, then it must be a good reason right? Even if I fail to see it at first. .
.
Through continious inner work and awareness, I started shifting this mindset to seeing growth opportunities in everything.
.
๐ŸŒผ So let me leave you with one of the biggest lessons I learnt...
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Everything we go through happens FOR you NOT to you. Seek the growth and lessons to grow into the best version of yourself ๐Ÿ™Œ #dailydropofmagic .

PANIC MODE ACTIVATED โš ๏ธโš ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ฐโ›”
โฌ‡๏ธLet me tell you a little story about earlier today. As the weather here in UAE is getting warmer (currently 45 degrees๐Ÿ˜ญ). We tend to sometimes receive unwanted visitors that come and say hello during this time of year.
.
โžก๏ธBy visitors I mean Gecko's. And if you're not familiar with what these are...well they are simply lizards. Oh yes. ACTUAL LIZARDS *insert dramatic grasp* ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ So this morning, a lizard decided to welcome itself into our home. So naturally as soon as I seen it, one might say I reacted quite...well strongly. Yes I'm usually a calm person but hey I'm still human!
.
But what happened here is that I reacted in a state of PANIC, which ultimately does nothing. When we are in a state of panic and stress, it actually makes things much worse and shuts off all our body and creative systems.
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Knowing this, I consciously had to calm my body and mind. How? By reminding myself that by panicking I just put myself in a UNRESOURCEFUL state. Which means I won't be able to think CLEARLY about what I need to do. .
.
๐Ÿ™So I took a step back, relaxed my shoulders and breathed out. Phew...much better. By doing so, it was MUCH easier for me to then THINK about what the next step was. And long story short...I SURVIVED. Thank you for your concern ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
โฌ†๏ธI hope you think of this little silly story next time you're in a state of panic. Remember how unhelpful it is to be in that state. So as hard as it can feel- try to take a step back physically, emotionally and BREATHE ๐Ÿ™Œ #dailydropofmagic

CHOOSE TO SEE BEAUTY ๐ŸŒธ
Being a positive person isn't about naturally just seeing the good things. It's about making the CHOICE too. .
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Honestly, I've had so many people tell me that I'm a naturally a positive person so it must be EASY for me to focus on the good. .
.
But let me tell you the honest truth...that's completely FALSE. I wasn't born with this "positive" gene or have natural super powers of positivity. (Wouldn't that be great though?๐Ÿ˜‰) .
.
๐Ÿ”…Instead I make the CHOICE every single day. A choice of whether I'll get caught up in the negativity, frustration and misery OR make the choice to see the beauty instead.
.
I know TRUST ME this isn't easy. At times it would be easier to just go down the negative rabbit hole and complain- but whag will that do? It will only cause me and my emotional health harm ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ
.
So are you going to choose to focus on how much traffic there is? How frustrating your classmates, colleagues or manager are? Or instead seek and try your hardest to CHOOSE to see the positive? ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘€
.
Let's start making the CHOICE to see the good and magic that surrounds us every single day instead. You'll thank yourself for it later!๐Ÿ˜‰ #dailydropofmagic .

DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT?
Like really really know? ๐Ÿค”โ”
.
โ‰๏ธ So I always "thought" I knew what I wanted but when I asked myself this question recently, I was at a loss. .
.
๐Ÿ”†Most of us don't have much CLARITY in our lives. We aren't clear about what we want. That's WHY most of us don't achieve our goals. We have this general idea of what we MIGHT want but it's not specific or detailed. .
.
โš ๏ธThen what happens? We get frustrated and feel like we're not moving towards our goals and dreams. This is how I felt!
.
โž•Think about GPS or Google maps, in order for it to take us to the destination we want, don't we have to give it an EXACT location? Then from there it calculates and provides us with the way and directions. It's the same with our goals.
.
๐Ÿ•  Spend some time today getting CLEAR on your goals. What you want and achieve in all areas of your life. Get clear and don't be afraid to shout it out loud in excitement when you do! Get clear and believe in YOU. #dailydropofmagic .

ENOUGH DOING. START BEING.
Something I heard recently that stuck with me was that 'we are human BEINGS...not human DOINGS' ๐Ÿ˜‚ so damn true.
.
๐Ÿ™ We live in a society that celebrates productivity and DOING- not being. .
.
๐Ÿ’โ€โ™‚๏ธ As children we are taught to do, finish and complete. We're rewarded for getting the most done in class and recognised for constantly working and being the best 'worker'.
.
๐Ÿ—’ Yes being productive and getting work done is great and needed at times. But we seem to forget that we also need to be sometimes and rest. We often forget we are human. We're not robots ๐Ÿค–
.
๐Ÿ•  When you allow time to BE more than DO you're allowing the space for creativity to kick in. You're allowing inspiration and resourcefulness to seep through. .
.
๐Ÿ‘ถ This is especially important for kids too. Lets start celebrating and rewarding their playfulness and exploration rather than just their completed work and grades. #dailydropofmagic .

ARE WE ALL ALONE?
.
On a podcast I was listening to earlier, there was a guy expressing that "we all live alone together". .
.
Suddenly I got goosebumps. Is this right?โ”
.
I was at a cafe today doing work and looked around me. Everyone had headphones in or were isolated on their phones. Now, I'm not innocent here...I totally had headphones in too ๐Ÿ™ˆ
.
But a thought occured. In a world that feels so disconnected at times, how often do we actually show our TRUE selves and feelings to those around us?
.
๐Ÿ‘ฃ So lets all take a small step together to combat this...โฌ‡๏ธ
.
How? By being more comfortable with expressing our true feelings to our loved ones and friends. Even smiling to those around us.
.
๐Ÿ‘ซ Communication is give and take. By you being more honest and open will allow those around you to do so too.
.
๐Ÿ’“ Lets start creating space for connection #dailydropofmagic

HIDING EMOTIONAL WOUNDS. PART 2
.
To heal emotional pain, we need to bring it up into our conscious awareness. Allow it through rather than suppressing it. By caring enough about our own emotional health, we can begin to allow SPACE for the wounds to come through ๐ŸŒ 
.
We need toย care enough about ourselvesย to spend time with ourselves. To care enough to look and seek within.
.
Take yourself down a path of reflection of your emotions, feelings and past events that may still be causing you pain. Journal it out, speak it aloud with loved ones, sing it, shout it- in any way form of expression that feels right to you.
.
Do NOT judge yourself. Take TIME to understand that it's OK to feel this way or to have felt this way. It doesn't make you weak.
.
The more comfortable you are with yourself and expressing your vulnerabilities, emotions and feelings. The more EMPOWERED you will start feel towards your wounds. You will start to realise that you no longer have to judge or hide your wounds. ๐ŸŒผ #dailydropofmagic .

HIDING EMOTIONAL WOUNDS. PART 1
.
Most of us have different levels of emotional wounds within us. We often think that it's the wound itself that is causing us the most pain and hurt. .
.
But after my own deep self work and work with clients, I've come to find that it is our own resistance and refusal to acknowledge what is happening inside of us which causes the most hurt. This then allows the wound to deepen further the more we suppress it โฌ‡๏ธ
.
Without realising we have learnt to unconsciously keep our pain so deep within and hidden JUST so we can continue going about our daily lives as "normal" as possible. .
.
If you think about it, society doesn't actually encourage us to "feel" as much, we are instead bombarded with statements like "don't feel this" and "you shouldn't cry about this". This in turn impacts and affects our emotional and physical health negatively so much without realising.
.
Tune in for part 2 tomorrow.... #dailydropofmagic
