Are you your own Safe Space?

Are you your own Safe Space? Blog CarrieMontgomery.com

When I first started my business, I was filled with 10,000 anxieties.  I wanted to impress, I wanted to succeed, I wanted to make a massive impact.  More than that, I really wanted to be accepted.

My issue was not being able to accept myself first.

I didn’t feel safe in my own body.  

I didn’t feel safe in the world at large.

I sure as hell didn’t feel safe engaging with people I didn't really know online.  

This brought up a perpetual paranoia that I was always under attack.

When I finally realized that the common denominator of all these anxieties was ME, I was able to work on it!

I did the deep trauma work.

I ate the clean food.

I did the writing.

I detoxed from tech.

I created comfortable space.

Once these things became my paramount priority…

My creative juices began to open up, the deeper I dove into creating a safe environment for me to express myself.  Finally I was able to take a stand for the work that I believed in (no matter what someone thinks about me).

And then I got on the train of how do we make this bigger, better, reach more people, make more money.  And, well, I burnt out. I found myself depleted, exhausted, and really not interested in my own work.

I craved intimacy.

I craved connection.

I craved a high touch service.

I deeply craved transformation.

I stopped living for what others said about running a successful online business:

  • You need to have a bigger audience

  • You need to post on instagram at this time, this way

  • You need to speak on big stages

  • You need “these” media outlets  (Those are other people’s goals and strategies.)

When you find yourself in the safe place of your own design, able to take inspired, aligned action, well, the universe starts to work in miraculous ways. The more you stay connected to this life force inside you, good things start to happen.

Your “I need to’s” may be...

I need to align with my body

Fill up my heart

Trust myself

Rest more

Take more spacious in between appointments

They can look very different than the to do list of someone else (even if they’re mega successful).  We’ve been programed to believe the more productive, the better. The harder we work, the more successful.  The list goes on of things that may NOT be serving you, but you’ve been sold by society that you need to do it THIS WAY.

So, my love, what are you looking for?  What will you do in 2019? Where do you need more alignment?  I’d love to invite you to a discovery call. We can look at how you need to serve yourself and how I can support you to get there.  And yes, we can do it in style!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you will know, style is an inside out job.

When we redefine the way we look at style (and how we do life), our world shifts!  I’d love to help you be successful, your way! Book you call here.

xoxo,

Carrie

Tomorrow I’ll be on my way back to America for a short trip. I have a speaking gig and will be leading a workshop in Maine. I’ve spent the past few weeks checking in with my body to make sure we can do the journey!

This is the deal… you have one life and one body. Learn how to tune in and take care of it.  

You may have a few lifetimes with karmic retribution and evolution of the soul.  But, let’s be clear with what is here and now.

You. Your Body. Your Spirit.

There’s a deep connection to how you feel about yourself, how you treat yourself, and how your spirit soars in the world.

It often has to do with what you’re thinking and the actions you take.

I know… self care… sounds like a luxury, doesn’t it?

When I took the leap to move to Spain, I definitely had this thought about being, “insane for moving across the world.”  

I had no clear plan and a major gut feeling. For the first time, I wanted to let my life unfold.

Everything at that point was FINE: business, health still a major obstacle, and well, my faith in the universe was a little battered.  I could no longer try to heal my souls’ connection to my body with another date, or another creation in my business. I had to get in alignment with my everyday life. Simplification was key.

In my wellness journey, I’ve inspected every aspect of my life. My energy, physical body, t how I’m feeling, what I’m eating, how I’m moving my body, who I’m spending time with, to my family, and how I’m serving the women I work with. Let’s be clear; we don’t need to master all these areas, but we do need to stay engaged in our process.

Wellbeing, to me, is about bringing parts of you to life that want to thrive. 

It allows your body to be well.  Your soul gets a clear signal when it’s time to shake her booty, or rest and recalibrate.

I had no idea what was in store for me in Ibiza.  What I’ve found has brought my heart back to life. My faith is being restored.

There have been EPIC dance parties under the stars.

Nothing cures an eating disorder like incredible, fresh, wholesome food. (more on this one day)

I’ve been introduced to natural wines and adventured to wineries.

The people are so free and fun and vibrant.

I feel at home here.

I’ve moved many, many times in my life.  The community that took me 4 years in Maine to create and 10 years in NYC to create, I’ve found in 3 months in Ibiza. Talk about ALIGNMENT!

I’ve been able to connect in sister circles.  I’ve been able to walk beaches and have heartfelt convos.  I’ve been able to just wander and explore the Island. Nikita has really enjoyed every step of the way. My Spanish is slowly getting better.

This, my friend, allows me to feel my faith being restored and my heart beat for life is back.

I didn’t realize how much my heart had been broken by the sequence of events over the past 10-20 years.  I was willing my way through every day and breaking down all at the same time. The body can’t heal that way.

The Somatic Dressing Method™ opened doors for introspection and creative expression that have left me and many women to feel liberated.

The crazy thing is… All I had to do was respond to an invitation and the rest has fallen into place. (yes, there were some challenging logistics) Like giving up my home in Maine before having my visa confirmed, but having a ticket purchased, and needing to wait a month before I could leave, if I could leave?

It was the ultimate LEAP OF FAITH!

I’ve been in Ibiza for 3 months now and I’m about to fly back to America for 2 weeks.  I’m thrilled to embrace my soul sisters.

Last week, I let you know about my upcoming workshop: Love Your Lines in 2019 with Style.  

The reason I created this experience is because dressing for my soul changed my life, as well as, hundreds of my client’s lives for the better. With regular practice, I found myself...

More calm

More focused

More confident

And MOST importantly, I found that when I committed to a daily body check-in, I had greater power to TRANSFORM things in my life that I wasn’t happy with.

This is what I want for you. I’m going to teach you the tools that I know will give you the power to expand your potential and feel embodied confidence. That’s why I created 2019: Love Your Lines in Style Workshop.

This will only be offered live while I’m back in America for a speaking gig.

I’ll be hosting a workshop for 3 hours and would love to have anyone in New England/Southern Maine join us in Portland.

This workshop will teach you the most soulful way to get dressed. You’ll fall more in love with your body and soul. You’ll exude confidence and ease (even if you have a lot on your plate).   As a result, you’ll receive more money, because you’re finally speaking your truth.

Join me! I can’t wait to see you!

XO,

Carrie
