Boomerang

Some days the Universe provides for you in ways that profoundly shift and open up who you are for the world. It allows for a glimpse past the now and into your potentiality. Today was one of these days for me. To say that it has been overwhelming and profound is an understatement. I met with a friend today who pointed out areas in which I had profoundly shifted his life, how it opened up his sense of empowerment and excitement, and he shared tools from his 40 year career in consulting to tie together loose ends for me that I had no idea could even be connected. My BEing with him was an awareness shift that simplified and modified my life path- yet solidified the next few steps in my life plan. I have always felt that with my perspective I have great gifts to share with the world. I have always known that I am a part of a massive movement to spread love, authenticity and abundance to the masses. A voice and leader for massive paradigm shifts and revolutionary ideas. A gift for helping others out of their own way and into the light of their truth. Sharing their innate soulful existence with the world. As I throw myself into the slingshot of life, trusting and allowing the Universe/God/Creator/Source to provide for me my gifts unfold. Sometimes I’m so blind to them that I have to be shown by others. My heart is wide open today. The gratitude that I have has literally had me crying for a few hours now. I wish for you all the profound healing that comes with this. For as terrifying as it is for me to be exceptionally bold, fully authentic I am equally as calm, centered and present. My life has entered a level that I cannot explain. Major processing is happening before the continuing evolution of Tatum will be ready to share. I love you. Me

Taking Responsibility for Your Energy Field

Morning thoughts on Energy 

We need to learn to take responsibility for our energetic field and responses as well as every other area of our life.

Learning how to control how we react energetically is absolutely tied into our expectations and perceptions. As we shift to more empowering thoughts we are able to release lower vibrations and move through them without causing a huge disturbance in the field.

Considering that energy is literally EVERYTHING it is important to think about how you are allowing your energies to boomerang out into the world- because they always come back to you as manifestations. No one wants to be around shitty uncontrolled and volatile energy.

This all ties into the Law of Attraction (I highly recommend The Secret and any books by Stuart Wilde).

It’s a practice, it takes time. You can do it. And please figure it out fast for the empaths of the world lol cuz that shit sucks.

I am here to do my part.

I am here to do my part. Just as all of you. When you look within, past your shadow, you’ll see the beautiful glimmer of your heart. You’ll be so grateful for all of life’s lessons, no matter how harsh, because you realize it’s all part of a bigger plan. YOU are part of a bigger plan. And all there is left to do is follow your heart and take a step forward into your greatness. It’s not that hard. Getting to this point is the most challenging- but it’s possible, and it’s so exceptionally freeing. At some point you get to a precipice where you just can’t be who you were anymore. You can’t play small anymore. You can’t hide your truth anymore. You can’t do what most people do- giving just enough. You know, just enough to where you think you can convince yourself that you’re on purpose. Just enough that you’re mildly uncomfortable but not enough to be fully seen. Just enough that you’ll probably still stay friends with that person from a lifetime ago who has no idea who you really are but you wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings by sharing your TRUTH. Let it the fuck go. Step into your greatness. You cannot serve the world if you do not serve yourself. You are here, on the edge of possibility and ultimate life creation. Just go for it! If you have the idea- you are ready. This was spoken to me a few years back and it so resonated. If your limiting beliefs are what is holding you back- then you know exactly what to work on first! What a gift! Trust that you are here for a reason. Trust that no one can do it better than you can. Trust that the Universe/God/misc higher power will provide. Because I trust you, and I can’t wait to meet the fully self expressed version of your gorgeous luscious soul. 

Allowing

Sometimes we block our own vibrancy by pushing instead of allowing. Even I have to remind myself that it’s supposed to be easy. One big change makes me want to make a lot of big changes and ‘old me’ wants to make it happen!! Fast!! Let’s do this!! Such masculine energy that pushes me to push through the field towards what is not for me. Regularly I get reminders from the universe to relax, rest and lean back. Into the divine feminine and the energy of flow, ease and abundance. Everything that is meant for me will be mine. Divine timing is real. Have faith. It’s a practice. When I’m in flow the world opens for me. When I’m not the doors close in my face. Happy that I’m getting very fast at noticing when I am not congruent with what I want to create energetically. Sometimes I fall back into old habits without even realizing it and wonder why I’m feeling off. Reflection is everything. Time alone is priceless. Look within. You already have all the answers and guidance you need.

Lifestyle Design

The truth is that you create the life you want. Sure life can throw you a wrench, but you always choose how you respond to any situation that arrives. Like attracts like and you have to take responsibility for YOU. Your thoughts, your energy, who you are- and how you show up for the world.

I have spent the last few years intentionally taking risks to carve out and create the lifestyle that I wanted.

First I moved to a beautiful location with the type of people and vibration that I wanted to be around.

Then, since I had to support myself, I got a job. But not any job. I promised myself that I would never go back to bartending and serving- that I was beneath no one, and would no longer work a job where even though I would make triple the money, I would not allow people treat me as less than. So I got a job that paid little, but was philosophically congruent and allowed me to eat 100% organic.

Then I moved across town so my expenses were less and I had more ‘play money’ to invest into growing myself, learning and working on my projects.

Then I realized that I needed more time for myself to stay grounded- and how essential this was so that I could stay connected to Source and on purpose.

So I cut my hours almost by half. I spent six months with this ‘baby step’ into my dreams. And even with all of this extra time, it became apparent that it was essential for me to up my level of self care and that that was the real key 🔑

And even after all of that- it wasn’t enough. Having one foot in was not enough. And one day I knew what I had to do- and I he hawed about it for another three weeks.

You know when it’s time to step into the life you were meant to have when the life you are in is more uncomfortable than radically changing your entire life.

So I threw it all up in the air- said fuck it- and put notice in at my job.

And here we are 😊 One week since my last day. One week fully on purpose. Three days of intense processing, and four days of bliss and excitement. I’ve gotten more done in four days than in the last four months.

Can’t wait to see what happens next.

It’s Time

There’s no time to waste. You’re probably feeling the pull towards purpose.

The door is closing and we all must step through it towards serving humanity at a higher level.

Create space in your life for magic to happen.

Lightworkers are hearing the call around the world to connect and weave together towards the collective evolution.

We are the wayseers and the leaders of this generation.

It is more uncomfortable and daunting to stay put now because it’s time to soar.

Rise like the eagle you are and accept your god given gifts and move forward.

The time is now. Your time is now.

Inspired action is the name of the game.

Get to the fork- choose the ‘risky’ heart centered way…

that’s the short cut to your truth and your gifts.

Life is a choose your own adventure story for soul growth.

Get in the game.

Boundaries Like a BOSS.

BOUNDARIES ARE THE GREATEST FORM OF SELF LOVE.  

If there’s anything I’ve learned this past year, it’s been defining and refining my personal boundaries.  Strong boundaries directly correlate with MY level of self-respect and what I think I deserve.  Essentially they tell the world my worth.

WHAT YOU ALLOW IS WHAT SHOWS UP

We are meant to THRIVE in love and authenticity!  The more I honor my personal boundaries the more happiness and flow I experience.  Congruency and integrity with Self allow for ease.

THOUGHTS BECOME THINGS

I limit myself more than anyone else- and I know this about myself.  I’m willing to bet that you do too.  Have you ever REALLY actively monitored your thoughts?  Take the time to acknowledge their presence and then transmute them.  Use your personal power to create new possibilities!

THIS IS OK, AND THIS IS NOT OK

It’s as simple as that.  If it feels congruent with who you are and your value system- go with it.  If it doesn’t then SPEAK UP for yourself!!!

DOWNSIDES

When you are firm in who you are for the world, and your boundaries, it can shine a light onto where others let their own boundaries slide.  It’s confronting.  It’s scary.  And sometimes people may lash out.  But remember, you are honoring yourself on such a powerful soul level and sometimes leveling up and letting go can be difficult and satisfying at the same time. Personal integrity feels sooooo good though.

UPSIDES

Because I am congruent with my innate- my inner voice- and my life purpose I am in greater Flow with the Universe.  This builds a skillset that transcends across all areas of life.

BONUS: This is the fastest route to joy, abundance and growth that I’ve found yet!

Achieve Mental Clarity for Peak Performance

Struggling with Mental Clarity?

Having a clear mind and being able to focus are two key elements for peak performance.

Whether on the job, playing sports or even just running day to day life we want to be at our best.  What we may not know is that it is actually pretty easy to maintain a clear mind so long as you are willing to make a few lifestyle changes.

Bonus, these changes will save you a lot of money in the long run as you will likely not need as much ‘sick care’ when you are older.  

5 Tips for Clarity and Peak Performance

1.  Stay hydrated

Your body is primarily water.  This is essential for distribution of nutrients, along with hydration and nourishment within the cell.  I aim to drink two liters of water per day.  One of the key things that I learned over the years was that you want to primarily drink room temperature water.

The reasoning for this is that it is easier for the body to absorb as it is closer to your natural body temperature.  If you want to go a step further, check to make sure there is no fluoride in your water.  Fluoride is a known neurotoxin (aka brain toxin) and relatively common in city water supplies.

2.  Eat Clean

You have to figure out specifically what works for your unique body chemistry, but I can tell you for sure what works for mine.  I feel at my absolute peak when I eat about 70% vegetables (at least half greens), 20% fruit and 10% meat and dairy.  Specifically,

I realize this sounds drastic for most people, so I would start with sticking to the outside perimeter of the grocery store.  Stay away from the processed foods.  I have a sweet tooth, and I know that I have minimal self-control once it gets to my refrigerator and cupboards, so I just don’t buy it. I eat clean at home specifically so that I can be naughty when I go out, and have no guilt.

Top Tips to Thrive as an Empath

For years strangers have been coming up to me and sharing their deepest darkest secrets. They seemed to innately know that I was a safe space to share.  Being that I am naturally curious, I listened first and asked questions later. It is an honor and a privilege to hold space for others, but if you are an empath you have to be very aware of your own energy field.   Being an empath means that it is very easy for me to pick up on other people’s energy, and even to take it on as my own.  This can easily lead to depression and burnout if you aren’t careful.  With tools, being an empath can be an amazing blessing, and a way to serve the world in a big way.  Here’s what took me a decade to learn:

  1. Energy is in everything and everyone and is always present.  Two big eye openers spurred my growth in this area.  The first was meeting a friend who did Reiki.  She physically had me put my hand between two of hers so I could feel ONLY the energy between them.  This propelled my curiosity enough to learn more about energy healing and eventually learn about cool people like Bruce Lipton, PhD & Dr. Masaru Emoto.  The second was watching the film ‘The Celestine Prophecy’.  I cannot recommend this film or book enough.  They showcase energy within the movie in a way where you can SEE it.
  2. Fill YOUR cup first.  You cannot pour from an empty vessel.  Take the time you need to fill your cup.  Only you know what that is for you.  For me it is spending time in nature, doing guided meditations on YouTube, eating clean, and being around positive like minded people.  The more I stay true to me and do these things, the more I am able to serve others and grow myself.
  3.  Hold space without holding on.  When my cup is full and I am with others I am able to create a space naturally where others feel safe to share.  This space is sacred in that I have to be my most vibrant self to hold that space for them while maintaining and thriving.  If you feel yourself taking on their negative emotions, or all of a sudden don’t feel like your vibrant self, then do this…
  4. Ask the Angels/Spirit Guides for assistance.  “Please return any energy that is not mine to where it came from.” Then take a few deep breaths and say Thank You.  This alone has made a profound difference in my life.  Trust that you are releasing the energy back to it’s source and move forward towards positivity.

Take the time you need to fill your cup. Only you know what that is for you.

It has been a long journey with a lot of growth, and every second has been absolutely worth it to get where I am now.  Remember that we are human, and with that leave space for breakdowns as well as breakthroughs.  Hopefully these tips will help you in your own growth and empowerment.  Feel free to comment and share this to help others as I have been helped.

Much love,

Tatum
