THE ART OF BEING PERFECTLY IMPERFECT

THE ART OF BEING PERFECTLY IMPERFECT
By Christine Blosdale

In this world that we currently find ourselves traversing, it can be far too easy to lose sight of the fact that we are indeed ever expansive gorgeous souls shoved into these teeny tiny human bodies with human emotions. The good, the bad, and yes, even the ugly.

While it is true that “what goes around comes around” in relation to karmic laws of energy, when you really get into this thing called life you will discover that quite often we are our own worse enemy.

WORK

You’ve been given an opportunity to work at an amazing company with insane benefits and a saintly boss. Ahhh but that darn attention starved Ego won’t let that bliss go for long until it finds something to muck it up. Office gossip, sloppy work and ignoring deadlines can be just a few of the ways we sabatoge our best interests.

LOVE
The most gorgeous person (both inside and out) wants to be with you, yes YOU. They actually think you are fckng amazing and are drawn to you like no other. Wellllllll doesn’t this just seem like the perfect time to try and FUCK IT ALL UP?! So you begin to look for any clues of their attraction to others, their past relationships, their social media history, their fingerprints, their DNA in case you need it for later analysis….you get the picture. We obsess on the conveyor belt of made up reasons why someone shoudn’t love us.

LIFE
You’re tired. Like dog tired. You worked a long AF day with people that were not very pleasant to be around and you just got home to a house in utter dissaray. It’s as if your children took every sticky, gooey, stinky substance known to man and threw it on your carpet. And then they grinded it in with their combat boots. 3——2——-1——- it’s BLOW UP TIME! And you start saying insane shit you didn’t even know could be slithered out of your mouth. Now here comes the guilt.

SHIT HAPPENS
It’s an important day at the office. The deal you’ve been working on could be the biggest of your career. But you’re late for work. Okay you’re always late for work. Whatev. It’s a Monday and you find yourself on a bumper to bumper freeway when you suddenly come to an abrupt stop in what looks like to be a parking lot. Fuuuuuuuck. Then, just as you check your radio to find out where the hell an accident has occurred (it better be a major car pileup or death to justify this bullshit) - that’s when it happens. Someone hits you from behind. And hard. You get shoved into the car ahead of you and a domino effect ensues with multiple cars being rammed from behind. Double Fuck. You just want to unleash on the person who hit you from behind with all the venom and frustration that a carbon based organism can muster. And his be justified. Or would you?

So here it is. The down low. The truth. The truth about you. And me. And every single person who has ever graced this planet. We are human. And we are not perfect. We are alive. We try things. We make mistakes. We stumble and we fall. We get hurt, but we rise again. We try again. And we keep learning. We keep growing. And we have to remind ourselves to be thankful for fucking up once in a while. In the grand scheme of things we need to remind ourselves to be thankful for this priceless opportunity called life.

Believe it or not, we asked for this. We stepped forward for this awesome assignment.

And we need to forgive ourselves (and others) for being human.

It’s the only way to get out of this place alive - and fulfilled.

I am sending love to you..and to the “you” that even you don’t see or appreciate. I see you. And what a sight you are!

Namaste

THE ART OF THE STORYTELLER

THE ART OF THE STORYTELLER
By Christine Blosdale

If you haven’t been born under a rock (and if you’re reading this I am assuming you weren’t) you know that EVERYONE loves a good story.

Since humans have been able to communicate past a grunt and grrrr we have had the innate need to tell our stories to one another. Be it to warn the other cave dwellers that a big bad T-Rex is on the hunt and in the hood, or to share what it feels like to fall in love, we have a long history of being insanely good storytellers.

But as the art of communicating around the fire and handing down stories from generation to generation has been somewhat lost in modern times, we have relegated our collective stories to be told by a chosen few.

So who gets to tell our stories today? For the most part large corporate media conglomerates, film studio executives, pop singers and a handful of lucky authors who’ve been able to wooo large publishing houses into accepting them on their roster.

Obviously there are a lot of powerfully important and moving stories that are missing in this model since 99.9% of the population doesn’t fit in any of those above mentioned categories.

That is until now.

Enter stage right the empowering world of SELF PUBLISHING.

Thanks to modern technology, the super speedy internet and a burst of creative expression among all classes, races and religions, more and more “everyday people” are becoming authors and sharing their stories with the world.

No other time in history could a 16 year old Haitian boy from a remote earthquake ravaged village become a published author and have his book sitting on the nightstand of a couple in Manhattan all while making profits from that book to benefit his village.

Or what about that stay-at-home mom who not only manages to take care of her four children on a super strict low income budget, but is now a worldwide author with an Amazon Best Seller most likely called “How To Stretch That Damn Dollar.”

Welcome to the World of Self Publishing kiddo.

Now virtually ANYONE can become a published author and help inspire others to beat that disease or overcome a major obstacle that would stop any mere mortal in their tracks.

Are you a freaky collector of your kitty’s hair and you’ve found 101 Uses for Cat Fur? Or maybe you survived a nasty divorce and the crap you went thru actually gave you tools and coping mechanisms to help others going through the same damn thing. Smell what I’m cooki here?

No matter what it is you’ve survived or what you have a keen interest in, trust me, that can be the subject of a book. And that book is needed in the world. By somebody. Perhaps by a whole lot of somebodies.

Self Publishing Genius DEBORAH S NELSON knows this far too well as she has helped hundreds of ordinary folk become certified published authors. Many of those have written a several books since working with her. And according to Deborah there are still so many stories to be told that the possibilities are truly endless. Cha-ching!

To hear my in depth interview with Deborah S Nelson and get inspired to write your own book (yes Shakespeare, it can be a tiny one, like 90 pages long, so don’t start sweatin’ the details) CLICK HERE >>

And if you already know that you simply have to share your wisdom with the world you might want to take advantage of her DO IT YOURSELF SELF PUBLISHING PACKAGE (discounted a whopping 50% off for my peeps only!). Just head on over to http://deborahsnelson.com/christine/

11:11:11

11:11:11 The Portal Is Now Open For Business  

IMG_3295.PNG

As we embark on November 11, 2018 (which translates to 11/11/11 in master numerology) a powerful portal is now open to us. It is a time in which we must be direct and conscious of our thoughts and beliefs as the power behind those messages we send to ourselves (and the universe) is amplified tenfold.

This is the perfect time to meditate on clearing those unconscious beliefs that are stored within our DNA from lifetimes of struggle and trauma that has been handed down to us not only from our own lifetimes, but also from our family’s lineage.

You have a big job to do and the portal of 11:11:11 is here to do the heavy lifting for you. But here’s the deal. You absolutely MUST be present. And you must want to clear that which is holding you back in life, love, health, relationships and business. In other words, the door is now open, but you need to walk thru it. 

For some this will be easy, as your whole life has been leading you to this point in time. Along the way you have gathered the tools necessary for this momentous occasion and the lessons have been learned on the Law of Attraction and clearing out old karmic wounds. 

For others it will seem daunting and a huge task as it means that you must face your own demons and dark shadows which can seem scary and overwhelming. It’s like that monster you swore was under your bed as a child is wanting to come out and you are hiding under the covers hoping it will just go away.

BUT the good news is that you now have the assistance of the entire universe and your guides to support you thru what many have called “The Dark Night Of The Soul.” And it’s actually a blessing that it’s all happening now!

You may not remember this, but you heroicly signed up for this masterful challenge. Long before you reincarnated here on Earth again to walk in your body, to meet the people you’ve met and to navigate thru the challenges and beautiful moments inherit in your life, you raised your hand and gallantly stepped forward to accept this honor. To once and for all gather your strength from all of your collective timelines to heal not only yourself, but the planet as well.

See, the world we see right now is in great need of healing. Just one look around at the current struggles and expressions of frustration, fear and hatred tells you deep down inside that it must end in order for us to ascend to a world of peace, love and harmony. 

But you dont don’t get there by adding more fear and anger or by “killing” anything. It is only thru pure conscious love at every level will we begin to heal. Love for those who are hurting. Love for those who have hurt us. Love for the planet that is needing it so badly right now. And most importantly, love for your self.  

Loving (and forgiving) your self is the highest most important thing you can do right now. Forgive your self for the mistakes you've made. Forgive your self for the people you've hurt. Love your self for the decisions you’ve made that led you to a life lesson. Love your self for being human. Just love your self and you will begin to see the power in that energy almost immediately. 

I promise. 

Sending love to you all...

KEEP IT SIMPLE: THE TOP 10 REASONS WE MAKE THINGS MORE COMPLICATED THAN THEY NEED TO BE

KEEP IT SIMPLE: THE TOP 10 REASONS WE MAKE THINGS MORE COMPLICATED THAN THEY NEED TO BE
By Christine Blosdale


Good God we humans are complicated.


Whether it be in business or personal relationships, humans tend to muck things up by over thinking and over analyzing every last detail over and over again until all of the joy is sucked right out of whatever it was that at one time, was a wonderful thing.

Simply put, most of us have lost the child-like ability to just be “present” and play with life. As our egos develop over time, the art of allowing whatever good stuff to come naturally through our passions and communication has been lost in the name of getting more money, more followers, more fans, more lovers, more attention…you name it…just more, more more.

So what are we doing wrong?

Here are my Top 10 Reasons We Make Things More Complicated Than They Need to Be

#1. Our Ego Has To Control Everything
Okay so this little bastard basically feels the need to take the steering wheel of your life in order to feel like it’s in charge. And yes, can be a real dick about it. But I’ll let you in on a little secret. As convincing and semi charming as he can be at times, your Ego is NOT your amigo. This entity will feed on you like some 50 foot tapeworm unless you can manage to control your thoughts - or at the very least bring them back to some form of reality. Meditation, utilizing programs that deal with the Unconscious Mind, regular physical exercise and the simple act of covering your big mouth BEFORE you blurt out some Ego induced rant or rave will get you far in life and it can keep  that twatwaffle Ego in check!

#2 We Are Gluttons For Punishment
I blame religion and dogma on this one. It’s the whole “you were born in sin” bullcrap that sticks to our ribs lifetime after lifetime and it harkens back to being thrown out of the Garden cuz an “uppity” woman ate an apple. Get over it. You are a glorious and divine aspect of God/The Universe expressing yourself in a flesh suit with blood in your veins and bones to hold you up. You came into this world perfect. You don’t need to be punished or put through hell for anything.

#3. We Don’t Believe in Ourselves or Our Destiny
This has flavors of #2 in it as it can also be driven by childhood programming from religion, our parents, or cultural beliefs that we are not good enough nor do we deserve to thrive. Trust me, if you could see just how magnificient you truly are and what it took for you to be right where you are right now you’d fall to your knees and kiss your own damn feet.

#4 Comparison is a Biatch!
With the advent of Facebook and Instagram and tens of thousands of chiselled abs and size 2 twenty somethings popping up on your phone, laptop, tablet or TV we tend to feel less than because we constantly compare ourselves to unrealistic creatures from the Perfect Lagoon. Just stop that right now because it is a game you will never win. And besides, those “perfect” people you compare yourself to have their own caca to deal with - (yes I said caca) and some have it way worse than you. They just don’t advertise it on social media. So please stop comparing yourself to anyone right now. There. You already feel better now don’t you? Knew it.

#5 The Shortest Distance Is…The Bloody Shortest Distance!
Why oh why do we insist on running a marathon when we could just take a quick drive around the block? There is a mis-perception that we have to work really hard and put in really long hours and grind our life away in order to be successful. That my over-worked and under-paid friend is simply NOT true. I know many successful people who have a gorgeous work-to-home-life-ratio and they manage to get everything done because they have learned to master the art of working smarter, not harder. It’s doable. And if you need help getting there, contact me @ OutofTheBoxWithChristine@gmail.com and we will as they say, chat about it.

#6 We LOVE Drama and Conflict.
This one is a no brainer. Just look at how much money we pay to go to the movies and sporting events. Rome had the Gladiators. We have the Academy Awards and the NFL. Or as my Aussie friends say, “Footie.” Bah! That sounds like something my Grama knitted for me as a child when I had a cold! Just know that we are ALL Drama Queens.

#7 We Don’t Listen to Hear. We Listen to Respond.
If we could simply hear what someone is saying and not be preparing some thesis or 50 page rebuttal we would be much further along as a species. Maybe this has a bit of that bastard Ego scent on it, but I really think that we are just not taught to listen as children. We are taught to cry to get what we want. And when we scream we get it even faster. But it’s just to shut us up. And we are never told that listening is just as important as demanding. But get this…when you truly listen you will hear what is needed and required and it will save you time, energy, money, frustration and the loss of friends and family members. Not a bad deal heh?

#8 It’s in Our DNA Darling
Okay this will be short and sweet and saucy AF. We not only carry our own wounds and traumas from this life, but get this, we also carry all the icky gooey gross crap from our parents, and their parents and their parents and… well you get the picture. It’s a crowded circus tent people! Then there’s all of our own personal past lives and the trials and tribulations we had back in the 1400s when scurvy and malleria were as common as a Starbucks on every corner is today. My advice to you is that you better start clearing that stuff up ASAP in order to move forward in this life. Hint: Meditate, Ask for Clearing and again, work on those unconscious beliefs you didn’t know you had.

#9 We Worry What Other People Think About Us
Bahahaha! Knock that shit off right now. Nuff said.

#10 We Seldom Ask For Help
Hey I get it. If you’re reading this you most certainly have that Entrepreneurial Spirit. That “I Can Do It Myself” attitude. The “Pull Yourself Up By Your Own Bootstraps” F’d up mentality that leaves so many people bitter and resentful on the side of the road of life because they simply fail at whatever venture they embark upon. Be it in business or relationships, we tend to isolate ourselves and suffer in miserable silence. That is plain stupid. Ask for help from those willing to give it to you and seek out those who are successful in whatever field you wish to excel at. And remember, they aren’t gonna find you hiding behind your cellphone darling, so reach out and get some guidance.
