I want you to feel good about yourself.

I want you to accept a compliment with grace and gratitude.

I want you to know how brilliant you really are.

I want you to know how beautiful you really are.

I want you to own it.

Own it all.

Everything single thing about you!

And I want that for me too.

Listen to this podcast to hear about the new commitment I’ve made to myself.

I am sure you will feel motivated to make the same commitment too.

 

Please get in touch with me at kira@kirajean.com, I would love to support you in your commitment towards self-love.

As I mentioned in the podcast below are the links I recommend you check out:

Trash-talking an apple

Onwards and upwards my friend.

Let’s work on this together.

Self-love.

Not the wishy-washy kind.

The “I’m freakin’ over feeling crap about myself, my life, and everything else in between!” kind.

I’ve committed to practicing self-love even more.

And to loving my life – totally.

Are you in?

Lots of love, Kira x x

How to own your special gifts and talents.

Today I released the need to justify my talents and gifts.

I came to realise recently that when I talk to others about something I am doing, a blessing I have received, or anything wonderful that has/is happening in my life, I find myself justifying it.

 

For example I say things like “oh yes, but I’ve worked hard for it”, “yeah, well, it’s not that big of a deal”, “oh, I’m just trying it out, I’m not really sure what I’m doing”.

I realised that in some way I was trying to explain myself. Explain my gifts and all the good things I had in my life, rather than owning them.

 

Of course, the above statements are in some respect true, but they are not the whole truth. Yes I do work hard, but that is not the only reason I’m successful. Yes, I have had many blessings in my life, but not because “I suffered enough already” and the other things I say to justify it, but because it is my divine right to receive such blessings.

 

As I reflected on this insight I realised how easily I could own the not-so-good things happening in my life.

 

Oh yeah, that ‘stuff’ – it was all my fault. I could own that. Then try to fix it. No problem. After all, I have always been good at being hard on myself.

 

But today I released the need to justify all the good (and ‘bad’) things in my life and simply OWN them.

 

Because this is the real truth –

5 Ways Leading From Within Will Change Your Life.

My friend,

You were born to lead.

You were born to lead millions of people, hundreds, or a lucky few.

Or… perhaps you were born to lead one person – a very lucky one.

Or maybe, just maybe, you were born to lead yourself.  You were born to follow the wisdom of your own heart and mind, and blaze a trail that reveals itself only as you courageously walk along it.

This is what I call leading from within, and it is what I deeply believe in, consistently commit to, and teach others how to do.

Leading from within empowers you to make wise decisions and act based on a deeper understanding and knowing.

This kind of leadership, once you’re tuned into it, flows easily. It’s not forced, aggressive or controlling. It produces positive results, and can help you balance your relationships, both personally and professionally. You become a magnet, and easily attract the people and resources you need in order to lead and live a fun and fulfilling life.

If you feel called to lead in some way, it’s important your leadership comes not from ego, but from sharing your gifts and story with the world. It needs to come from the soul, from a deep place of wanting to empower others and affect positive change.

Forget Google. Here’s where you’ll find your answers . {the art of journaling}.

It’s my belief and understanding that we have access to all the answers we seek. The majority of answers lie deep within, and are only found through stillness, breakdowns, and breakthroughs. The other kind of answers come to us when we are open to receiving. Many answers appear subtly in our lives, and we assume they are coincidences or unrelated. The best place to look when confused, anxious, unsure, and pensive, is within.

But the problem is, we rarely ever look in that direction. We are taught to seek answers outside of ourselves in external circumstances, information, and even in the opinions of others.

I want to be clear, the answers I refer to are the ones that are “heavily-loaded”. They are emotionally charged and our need for clarity, certainty, and understanding, yet the lack of it, creates emotional imbalance and turmoil in our lives.

Seeking new information is not a bad thing. Searching for an answer to an intellectual question, might be frustrating at times at the most, but it’s usually not heavily charged with emotion. Similarly, seeking to learn understand and the wisdom of others is also desirable and necessary. Read More

How to turn things around and take back control when faced with challenges.

Often our biggest challenge is not the actual challenge or problem we face, but our struggle to stay grounded, connected, and clear in our mind when we face it.

Challenges bring up all kinds of emotions and thoughts, and it’s often hard to separate ourselves from our emotional and mental tangle to look at the challenge clearly.

You make your wisest decisions when you are grounded in clarity and confidence, but certain thoughts and emotions can get in the way of that.

In today’s v-log I share with you my insight on something I have been struggling with myself, and I explain what simple tool I used to overcome my personal challenges, and become grounded in clarity and confidence again. Read More

The only fashion advice I’ll ever give you.

Hi gorgeous one,

Today the funniest thing happened.  I was in my car, which is where most of my good ideas show up for me, and I had this hilarious thing come to my mind.  A story I wanted to share with you.  I wasn’t sure if I should share it or not, but then I thought “oh well, what the hell”.  Let me warn you now though, this is probably the closest you’re ever going to get to receiving fashion advice from me.

I’m an inside out kind of woman.

I believe taking care of my mind, body, and soul is where the true beauty lies.  In saying that, I do love me a little fashion.  What I wear is one of the ways I express myself.  And to be honest, it’s not so much about what I wear, but more about how I feel when I wear it.It’s only been recently though, that I’ve felt like my outside truly reflects who am I am on the inside.

In the beginning of my yoga journey, I quickly subscribed to the idea that beauty lies within – exclusively.  I rejected the idea of taking care of the “outer me”, and became negligent about my appearance, to say the least.  On the flip side, there’s been times pre-yoga when I’ve been overly obsessed with my appearance.  At this point in my life I was lacking awareness of the depth and value of my inner qualities.

To sum it up, in the last few years I’ve gone from a back-packing homeless yogi, to living in a big villa in Dubai, with more luxury surrounding me than I ever thought possible. Read More

Hi beautiful,

I’m all for living our best lives possible. Heck, my whole website, blog, coaching, yoga-ing, is all about it!

But what do we do when we look around and feel like OUR best lives aren’t big enough?

I see it all the time. People living the life of THEIR dreams, but feeling like it’s not enough. They’re not doing enough, their not living big enough.

In this video I speak about my message “you are enough” as a way of overcoming Comparison Syndrome, and give you tips on how to get clear on what living YOUR best life means for YOU.
