Remember to Surrender

Surrendering to the unknown means not knowing what’s next and being ok with it. It means that you have fully surrendered to the Universe and have faith that you will receive the guidance and signs of what to do next.

As a self proclaimed wild woman, it’s kind of an exciting place to be.

Let’s be clear tho, it doesn’t mean I don’t have my moments of WTF!! I do! but they are generally few and far between. ( except Mercury Retrograde. It seems to be an ongoing WTF moment while she is in charge)

See the thing is, I learned many years ago what it was to surrender. What it was to loosen the grip and give up control. I fully accepted that there is a higher power handling everything.

It’s not my job to figure anything out. My job is to show up and follow what my intuition is telling me and to be brave with that. My job is to take inspired action when I receive the sign’s and guidance I’ve asked for, because what good is it to continually ask for guidance only to be scared to take the action? How would I ever step into flow? How would the Universe and I simultaneously give each other the nod?

Life is full of ebbs and flows. Thats just how it is. How would you ever learn, grow and get perspective if things were “perfect” all the time?

Here’s something I want you to get your head around. Thing’s ARE in fact perfect all the time. Every eb you have is actually the Universe delivering what you’ve asked for. Don’t you see that?

You’ve asked for the perfect partner or more abundance? Brilliant! You’re totally worthy of that!

Here is the things most people miss.

When you ask the Universe for something big like your twin flame or increased financial abundance, who you are and where you’re at obviously doesn’t have that, does it? Thats why you’re asking for it.

You’re sitting at A and what you want is at B.

The Universe is more than willing to give you what you want because the Universe is a bloody legend like that so it’s going to start moving you down the path to get you to B.

The B version of you is a little more secure, has a bit more wisdom, knows the value and vibration of money a bit better, your self love tank is a little more full and you’re just a wee bit more awake.

What you must not forget is you’re going to need to go through growth, my love and growth can look different each and every time. What’s important is that you see it for what it is. It’s not bad, it’s good. It means you’re on the way to getting what you desire. Celebrate! Thank the Universe for the growth.

The key is to stay aware of your ego. Don’t let it cripple you, no matter how bad things might seem. Your job is to get really curious and ask WHY. Why are you experiencing what you’re experiencing? What do you need to learn? What changes do you need to make? Why are you reacting the way you are? Are you in faith or fear? What are you not acknowledging?

Ask God/ Universe to show you very clearly what your next right action to take is.  Ask to be shown “the way” and then surrender over and over again. Keep handing your thoughts and fears over to God while you follow his guidance.

We are merely a vessel on Earth to do God’s work. Surrender everything to him. Trust that whatever is showing up is part of your journey. Take the lesson from it and continue on.

What do I do pre surrender/ mid freak out? I drop to my knee’s and I pray for help and guidance.

It look’s a little like this-

God,  I need you to show up for me right now. I need your help. I don’t know what the eff I’m doing. Please show me very clearly what my next action to take is. Please show me the way. Show me what to do and I will do it. Thy will not mine be done. Thank you. Amen.

Lots of love,

Dear Future Husband..

Dear future husband,

I waited for you. I refused to settle. I refused to “wait and see how it goes” with other men. I refused to fill any boredom with tinder swipes or tinder dates.

I knew you would show up magically, when all the stars aligned.

I knew somewhere out there you were searching for me too, refusing to settle.

I knew when I saw you, I would just know and so would you. Our soul’s would recognise one another. There would be a sense of familiarity, calmness…..a feeling of “I’m home”.

My daydream’s of endless laughter, chasing summer adventures, honesty and loyalty were not hopeful wishes but memories of our great love in past live’s. It’s always been nothing short of magical in every lifetime.

My incessant need to wait for you, no matter how long it took for you to find me was merely our soul agreement to each other. We agreed that we would once again find one another and share this life time together.

There was never a space or time that would have made me give up searching for you. I knew you would find me.

The deepest wound’s my heart ever received only made me more determined to wait for you.

See, I didn’t need you to fix me. I had already done that. I had been broken and repaired myself, all on my own. I needed to do that. I needed to be young, make mistakes, feel alone and hit a certain depth of despair.

I made a vow when I was at my rock bottom to be the best possible version of myself.  I think I was wanting to be the best version of me for you, too.

My past and my pain will always be some of my greatest teacher’s. I needed to be reminded what love wasn’t, in order to remember what love was. You, are love.

I needed a few years on my own, to find myself and to love myself, fully and freely. I needed to experience going from girl to woman on my own and to ground myself in the Divine power all women carry. That was also part of my soul contract.

Although at times I prayed so hard that you would find me immediately, I want to thank you for sitting back and allowing me to learn some of life’s most valuable lesson’s before you reached for my hand.

So, my love. I close with this, “ When two people are meant for each other, no time is too long, no distance too far and nobody can keep them apart “. – anon

Never stop finding me.

All my love,

Shanny x

Wellness Boosting Bone Broth

Whoa! I have been inundated with requests of my Broth recipe since posting about it on Snap and IG last week.

You have probably heard about bone broth before, yeah? It’s been on the scene for some time now and if you’re interested in health and wellness it’s likely you have had a sip or two of some beautiful immune boosting broth.

If, you’re a newbie to broth, let me give you the low down on it’s amazingness and benefits :

1. It heals a leaky gut.

The gelatin in bone broth protects and heals the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and helps aid in the digestion of nutrients.

2. Fights infections such as colds and flu.  

A study shows eating chicken soup during a respiratory infection reduces the number of white blood cells, which are the cells that cause flu and cold symptoms.

3. Reduces joint pain and inflammation.  

The glucosamine in bone broth can actually stimulate the growth of new collagen, repair damaged joints and reduce pain an inflammation.

4. Produces gorgeous skin, hair and nails.

The collagen and gelatin in bone broth supports hair growth and helps to keep your nails strong.

5. Helps with bone formation, growth and repair.

The calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in bone broth helps our bones to grow and repair.

6. Saves you money.

Homemade bone broth is cheaper and healthier than store bought.

7. Super easy to make.

All you need is a crockpot. Throw all of the ingredients into the crockpot and it cooks while you sleep.

8. Healthier than buying supplements.

Homemade bone broth contains all nutrients and minerals found in bones and tendons rather than just one or two found in pills. Slow cooking preserves the nutrients better than the high heat extraction used to make supplements.

9. Fights inflammation.

Bone broth is very high in the anti-inflammatory amino acids glycine and proline.

10. Promotes sleep and calms the mind.

The amino acid glycine found in bone broth can be very calming.

PLUS! It’s super great for your skin and hormones. It’s basically the bee’s knee’s.

WHAT YOU NEED

2kg free range or pastured chicken carcasses (plus a few chicken feet),

1 large celery stalk, cut into chunks

1 carrot, cut into chunks

1 bunch of parsley stalks

4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

1 onion, cut into chunks

1 tbs raw apple cider vinegar

1 tsp peppercorns

1 tsp Celtic sea salt

3 bay leaves

5L  litres water

Add a few shiitake mushrooms (optional, for deeper flavour and medicinal properties)

 

WHAT YOU DO:

Step 1

Add everything to your slow cooker or pot and cook on low overnight or for a minimum of 8 hours.

Step 2

Pour broth through a strainer into a large bowl or into individual glass jars.

Step 3

When the broth has cooled, the fat will solidify into a layer on top. You can then easily scoop this off before serving.

Heat it up and enjoy!

Lots of love
