You Can Choose

24 Aug

You can choose to bend your back under the burdens of feeling incompetent, operating from scarcity and despair. Stagnant.

You can choose to bow your head and fix your eyes on the ground under the weight of never being good enough for yourself or anybody else.

You can choose to live on your knees, trapped in the dark hole of your circumstances and your mind.

Or.

You can choose to rise.

You can choose to climb.

You can choose to drop the weights and make them your bridge to greatness.

You can choose to get on your feet and fight your way out of the dark.

You can choose to raise your head, straighten your spine, and face down every feeling of less than or not good enough.

You can choose to slice through your reserve and say the things you really want to say. Do the things you really want to do. Feel the things you really want to feel.

You can choose to free yourself.

You can choose to value your growth and expansion more than you value your comfort.

Choice. Intention. Action. Reaction. A consciousness that your behaviour creates your present and your future. Might as well operate from a richness of spirit, eh?

There is always a choice: action or inaction; victory or defeat; blend with your power or blend with your fear.

Blending with your power strengthens you, sharpens your identity, emboldens you to flow with your challenges and stay fluid enough to find lasting solutions.

Blending with your fear depletes you, sucks you dry, blurs the shape of your identity and leaves you at the mercy of whatever challenge you encounter, both big and small.

You can choose to ask for help when you don’t have the answers.

You can choose to spark your soul fire and guard it fiercely against those who would douse it.

You can choose to go deeper than most and trust that you’re capable of handling whatever’s buried within.

You can choose.

What’s your choice? Will you decide to flourish, not because anyone says so or pushes you to, but for yourself? I hope your answer’s yes.

Mine is. Yes.

Shine at Your Fingertips

30 Jul

I’m excited. And worn out. And ready to sleep for days on end. My eBook Shine at Your Fingertips is finally ready to be launched into the world. Booyah.

This is something I worked on for a long time and polished as much as I could before presenting it here. It’s my first attempt so please bear with any snafus, LOL. 

Here’s a sneak peek:

Introduction: Why I’m Writing It

Hello! First of all, thank you for reading this. Thank you for choosing to spend your time with me. I promise to make it worth every moment.

My name is Otiti. I’m writing this eBook for you. For me. For us. For the world. It’s a message from my gut to yours, a call from my heart to yours. There’s a truth we all need to remember, and that truth is this: we are all made to shine. Every single one of us.

There’s a light within, a fire, a passion so deep and intense we fear it might consume us if we tap into it. So we shy away, and we stay small and safe, and we remain unfulfilled.

I’d like to change all that. I’m here for the soul explorers. The truth-seekers. The lovers of light and energy and fire. The minds in love with clarity and vision. The hearts open to adventure while exploring the unknown, braving the edge again and again.

Let’s take this journey together and step into our brilliance. Let’s take this journey together and access the shine at our fingertips.

Our greatest challenge is to be our fullest selves. Are you up for it?

That’s it! Want more? 😀 Download it HERE. No charge. 🙂 I’m confident it’s full of juicy goodness to water your soul. Please share it with your peeps and leave a comment on what you take away from it! Happy reading, my friends.

PS: I’m told mobile downloads don’t work so I suggest using your computer or other device to access the eBook. Thanks!

Of Stardust + Audacious Cosmic Energy

27 Jul

This whole week has been about being audacious and living out loud at full volume. Like, eardrum-piercing, blood-throbbing volume. Fuelled purely by your intuition and the fact that you’re simply brimming with cosmic energy, dahling.

Dictionary.com : audacious (adj):

  1. extremely bold or daring; recklessly brave; fearless
  2. extremely original; without restriction to prior ideas; highly inventive
  3. recklessly bold in defiance of convention, propriety, law, or the like; insolent; brazen
  4. lively; unrestrained; uninhibited 

You are made of stardust. You are here to revel in colour and energy. You are here to live every single day. Believe that.

If you ask me what I came to this world to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.

Emile Zola

Incandescent inker Nikki Groom wrote a post that made me sit up and PAY ATTENTION: Indecision Is Brutal was a wake-up call like no other. Packed with gorgeous goodness and one soul-scorching line after the other, it made me ask one simple question: WTF was I doing dithering so much?

Why wasn’t I out there acting on my truth? Why wasn’t I lighting up the universe with my personal brand of magic? And more importantly, why are we so hesitant to step into our power?

While I was still chewing over Nikki’s words 2 days later, I read You’re Genius. Didn’t You Know? by Danielle Dowling. Danielle spoke my language and drummed home the message that it’s time to explode onto the scene. Now. NOW. Not tomorrow or next week.

Well, I don’t know about you but it definitely seemed like the universe was trying to tell me something. Not just me either, but you, you, you, and you. Everyone who reads this blog and the posts above. That message is simply this:

Be bold. Fierce. Audacious. Dare to dream so big you can’t imagine how it’ll ever be possible, then make it possible. Dare to have a vision so grand you wonder if you’re not deluding yourself, then knuckle down and work it into existence.

Follow your intuition so audaciously you have no room for doubt and second-guessing. Get out there and make shit happen.

You can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an inner exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.

The Radiant Soul Manifesto

17 Jul

You are here to explode like a supernova and burn as fierce as a forest fire.

You are here to light up the world with your brilliance.

You are here to be the highest, sweetest, hottest version of yourself.

You are here to discover your personal brand of magic and dazzle the rest of us with it.

You are here to think for yourself, to decide for yourself, to choose for yourself.

You are here to love, to build, to create, to strengthen.

You are here to leave a legacy of power and impact.

You are here to show up, to rise, to feel the wind in your bones as you soar in the sky.

You are here to dream and imagine, to make the nebulous concrete and the ethereal real.

You are here to celebrate your gifts.

You are here to live fully, vibrantly, wholeheartedly.

You are here to be a Radiant Soul.

Get on it.

Power. You. Here. Now.

29 Jun

Right now, this very second, power is bubbling within you. Energy is percolating away and straining at the seams of confinement.

Do you feel it? Do you sense it?

Power is changing the way you think and how you perceive the world, why you’re here and what you’re going to do about your life’s calling.

Do the shifts scare you? Are you scrabbling to hold tight to old ways or breathing deep to let change flow in + through you?  Continue reading

Know. Savour. Embrace.

26 Apr

“I don’t know what to do.”

You do. You do know what to do. You’ve always known.

You know that you need to live true to yourself. You know that you need to work towards your desire, not against it. You know that you need to feel alive by doing the things that are sacred and important to you.

You know. You know.

Your soul is nudging you right now, isn’t it? Whispering in your ear and urging you to leap. Leap. Piping up and saying “She’s right, you know. Let’s go for it. Let’s!”

Let it move you. Let it speak. Let it grow. Let your soul guide you. Continue reading

What If?

17 Feb

I used to see those two words as harbingers of timidity and uncertainty: What if I fail? What if I fall? What if I’m wrong? What if they don’t like me/accept me/support my idea?

You know, that kind of thing.

Then I realised: they hold great potential. Potential. Possibilities.

What if you succeed?

What if you own the competition and go hard like never before?

What if you binned the doubt and went for it even in the face of great adversity?

What if you learned to fly even as you were falling?

Things are changing around and within me. I’m actually giving myself a chance to go with my gut and trust that it’s the right thing to do. I’m realising that all the careful planning in the world can’t match the sheer thrill of letting yourself feel on a deeper level. 

You’re so much more in tune with yourself when you think beyond the borders of what’s “real” or acceptable.

The truth is that letting yourself think wild and free is the key to authentic expression.

It’s the beat of your pulse.

It’s the difference between wondering if you’ll make it and knowing that you will.

It’s the raw honesty you get when you face your hopes and fears; when you can look at yourself, really look, and truly be thankful for all that you are and have.

Even when you’re not perfect. Especially because you’re not. We get so caught up in trying for perfection that we forget to celebrate what we have right now.

What if.

What if you discovered you didn’t have to try so hard?

What if you were kinder to yourself and didn’t allow momentary setbacks negate your progress & achievements?

What if you believed in your power and still asked for help when you needed it because you knew that didn’t make you weak?

What if you took the first step because you couldn’t wait to taste the extraordinary?

I believe in positivity.

I believe in magic.

I believe in loving yourself enough to admit what you desire and what you need.

I believe in being true to your spirit and going where it leads you.

What if we changed “Oh, I can’t possibly . . .” to “Yeah, I can totally . . .”?

I may not know your name. I may not know your story. I probably don’t know what you’ve experienced, what you’ve felt, what you’ve endured.

I only know that holding on to your past is the surest way of sabotaging your present and future.

Having the courage to work through the pain and give yourself a chance to heal is a lot harder than hugging the hurt and staying trapped in an endless loop of recrimination and dissatisfaction.

So take a chance today.

Give yourself the gift of following your heart.

Give yourself the gift of living your passion.

Give yourself the gift of being your own person.

Give yourself the gift of continuously evolving and growing.

So. Are you ready to turn your ‘what-ifs’ into expressions of power and aptitude?

Alive

15 Jan

Hey there! How’s it going? 🙂 It has been some time since I actually wrote something other than a poem so I decided to share prose in this entry. I came across a question my friend asked on Facebook, what it means to one to be alive, and I thought about it for some time. Here’s what I wrote:

“I am alive when I think, when I feel, when I touch minds with my loved ones and build memories with like-minded souls. I am alive when every day is new and bright and exciting, when it is certain that I actually live and not simply exist, when I know that my emotions are pure and true and real. To be alive is to live and experience. :)”

Such wisdom! LOL. I do think we often forget to live and be alive, we just exist from day to day under the weight of our problems/burdens/concerns. Life is about balance. Make the time to enjoy, to relax, to be aware of and thankful for your blessings. Express your love for others. Hug a friend. Forgive yourself for past errors. Travel and explore the world around you. Live. Love. Celebrate. Discover. Embrace. Be Alive.
