When was the last time you actually took the time to truly say thank you
Not a crap, off the cuff, unfeeling thank you
But really took the time and energy to notice

The little things
The big things
The love
The concern
And everything in between

Your lack of appreciation outwards is a reflection of your appreciation inwards

You don’t appreciate the little things within yourself and so how could you ever truly appreciate the little things within another.

You don’t have gratitude for your own efforts and so you blow by all the efforts of others

Not seeing them or instead minimizing, diminishing, or turning them sinister

You smother the love that you so crave because you don’t slow down enough to appreciate and truly see it being offered. Instead you hyper-focus on the type of love you want and it’s scarcity. Giving a big F U to those holding out their hands in offering. Missing what truly is present

You smother the love for yourself because you don’t slow down enough to appreciate self. Instead your beat yourself down. And without realizing it you beat down those around you as well. You take back your love. You second-guess. You close down. A closed down heart is an ungrateful heart. An unappreciative heart. A heart that has lost it’s connection with self.

And in this closing down you close down your sight for the beauty and the gifts. This beauty and gifts are straight from God… and you spit on them!

You can turn this around. You can revel in the offerings of other, of self, and of God.
God wants us to appreciate. In true HEARTFELT (key word!!!) appreciation God rains more blessings down upon us.

More love
More abundance
More blessings
More BLISS

When was the last time you looked yourself in the eyes and said, ‘thank you’. Thank you for being you. Thank you for waking up each morning and striving to grow. Thank you for falling down in order to get back up stronger. Thank you for seeing your shit!

And when was the last time you saw the efforts of another and just stopped. Stopped and said a true thank you. Told that person that they do matter and let them feel seen. Said thank you for another showing you their heart AND their struggle. Thanked another for just being them!

Go out in appreciation today.
Go step into a sense of acknowledgement
Go see the world and much more importantly self with a heart of gratitude.

And step into greater bliss TODAY @ https://addisonbell.net/bliss-coaching/

📢Are you REALLY THERE??? 📢

I still sit here in gratitude today for yesterday. 😇

Yesterday I met my friend to have a yummy lunch, to connect, to celebrate ourselves, our friendship, and to plan coaching world domination… hehe! 💥📢😈🌍
But as we sat there and connected I had this immense gratitude for my friend. A gratitude that brought tears to my eyes then and has me writing this and still tearing up.

Yep, I’m a bit of an emotional person!

Although, I was in gratitude not just for the time she was gifting me…because time is our most precious asset. But really her sharing, her excitement, her energy and most of all her presence. Her being really with me in the moment as we talked. Her being with herself as we talked. And today was no different than most of the times when we are spending time stirring up mayhem!🤣😎😜

It really got me thinking about the lack of presence I see in our world today but particularly our lack of presence with each other. Instead of being in the moment. Hearing what the other person has to say and hearing beyond the actual words…. really listening deeper into the message the other person is trying to get across. Words are cheap but the energy and feeling behind them tells us so much.

In our hustle and bustle society we don’t often take the time to really be present enough with the other person… not checking our cellphones… not thinking about our response… not thinking about how we need to go get our kids… but really WITH the other person. We miss out on connecting, supporting, and celebrating with the other person.🙏🎊🎉🎈

We also miss out on being present with ourselves. Present enough in ourselves to notice the different feelings and sensations coming up in our own bodies…. The excitement, the joy, the jealousy, the sadness, and the fear. All of these being key pieces to learn more about ourselves in relationship.

It is a rare person that can truly hold presence with another person. You know it when someone is truly WITH you. You feel it. You know it at a core level even if they are looking at you, nodding their heads, etc. There is simply an energy!

I know for myself there are times when I am super present in conversation, holding space like a Bad-ass, and yet still connected to myself. Then there are those times when I am having to push against my monkey-mind and ego driven thoughts. These are moments of learning and leaning in a little bit more. When I recognize the disconnection I strive to step into being present a bit more and through whatever is blocking.

My question for you today is how are you showing up in ALL your relationships?

💓With kids, lovers, friends, colleagues, clients, etc?
💓Where are you struggling to be present?
💓Are you listening to their words or are you feeling into their hearts?

No matter the answer…LEAN IN MORE

Birthing of A Soul Part 2: Leaning Into Connection

It’s been a very long week of expansion and contraction, and honestly, my emotions are all over the place as well as my energy. One moment, I feel like crying, and the next, I am in a pure state of divine bliss! I have had several personal growth sessions and am working on integrating them all. A few days ago, I had a rebirthing session (see Birthing A Soul: A Session of Transformation), and today, I am to have a different rebirthing process, not only to integrate the previous few days, but also to incorporate the human need for connection.  Read more

How I Lost 25lbs and Gained Sexual Empowerment Through Tantra

From the time I was 10 years-old until I was in my twenties, I fought a bloody battle with my own body, which manifested as anorexia and bulimia. I spent 15 years in what can only be described as a hell of my own body but more than anything, a place where I was a prisoner of my own mind. I was blessed, however, to get help and eventually fully recover. I learned to come to a place of peace with my body and formed an essence of neutrality. I no longer put effort into trying to lose weight because I knew this was a slippery slop to relapse. Through the years of recovery it became apparent that I needed to work on my past sexual trauma that was keeping me stuck in not only a war against my body but in many areas of my life, especially my sexuality. I would later learn that most individuals with eating disorders also have some difficulties with their sexuality in some form or fashion. I went to therapy religiously and pushed myself to open up internal boxes that I had bolted shut. The deeper I dug the more disgusted I found for my sexuality and the more my body shut down physically.

The Intuitive Pussy

My pussy speaks to me. It has a voice. At times in my life this voice has been almost inaudible while at other times it has been loud and robust. Years ago I worked very hard to silence this part of me that was connected on a soul level. The connection felt too much, too intense, and too open. Through my awakening to different sexuality practices I have reconnected with that primal area. However, despite any attempts to ever silence my pussy it continues to speak to me whether I am listening or not, and when I am not listening my pussy finds a way to make me pay attention! During these times of disconnection I feel lost and uncertain about my life and overall ungrounded-ness when not connected to my source energy. When I am connected I feel alive, I know where I am headed in life, I have energy, and every nuance of life is deeply felt and blissful.
