Stop using your past to prevent your future, the one you truly want, from unfolding. On the other side of your story that haunts you are your dreams. On the other side of the walls, you've built there is love, the love you desperately crave, yet fear. It's time. It's time to live the life you've dreamed of. It's time to rise. Take the time to waste a moment. 
When the second step seems impossible, unbearable or inexistent, take the first. It's time.

Working on choosing courage, truth-telling​ ​and letting go. Not easy. Never comfortable. I'm grateful to have those people in my life who love me, not despite my imperfections and vulnerabilities, but because of them.​ ​

We need them when we're trying to dare greatly!​ ​ 
Last night I was SO inspired at The Woman in Communication and Technology Gala. So many women talking about courage in business, creating equality for woman. Showing up even when the rest of the world thinks your crazy. Most of the recipients thanked their mentors, the other woman that helped shape them and they acknowledged that awards are rarely, if ever won alone. There's always a tribe behind and beside you.

What I realized was that my journey to here was a lonely one. I didn't have mentors, I didn't have someone paving the way and holding open the door. I didn't have someone I could pitch and catch with and grow and fail with. I didn't have someone to share my fears and vulnerabilities with because most of the women that I met were mean and judgemental and stared at you from your feet up and asked

It was the WORST feeling in the world, and as a result I started to distance myself from networking events and said NO more than I said YES. I had to trip, fall, dust myself off and Rise one more time.​ That was until I met my tribe. I think it's all too common today and I'd like to see that change, The greatest gift we can give someone else (and ourselves) is the belief that they are worthy of being listened to, loved and supported, simply for existing. We all have a story, each and every one of us and its in the sharing, that we feel a little less alone. If talking lovingly to plants helps them grow, imagine the size of the blooms if we all were to empower instead of competing. #creation #tribe #gratitude

I've been a master at avoiding pain and feeling the feelings of guilt, shame, weakness, embarrassment, sadness, etc. That was until I gave myself no other option than to go within and do the work I needed to do to climb out of the destruction that surrounded me. Not always so glamorous, right? Eh, not so much - but I was done being cool girl who was always fine, the perfect girl who seemed to have it all together, the rescuer who saved everyone to escape herself. The one that worked so hard for so little. The shift? I was done looking for anything outside of me to fill my voids...and instead, I walked into the fear (still do), owned my story, integrated and healed the pieces of me that I wasn't so excited about (still do), and continued to say no to anything that didn't serve me and yes to everything that did. And not by coincidence, when I started being me, I found people who could see, accept and love me instead of pretending to be everything but me. Move towards the fear with faith, freedom is always on the other side. Give it a try, be honest, get messy. Forget

Wise, wise words. When we grasp and hold onto people or things what we are grasping are the stories (the meaning we've created about ourselves due to an outcome) that we aren't willing to let go of yet. Letting go = acceptance of what is. It goes beyond what's so-called

Wise, wise words. When we grasp and hold onto people or things what we are grasping are the stories (the meaning we've created about ourselves due to an outcome) that we aren't willing to let go of yet. Letting go = acceptance of what is. It goes beyond what's so-called "right" or "wrong" - beyond the stories of a conditioned mind. It is the surrendering to a bigger plan. As many say, when the resistance is gone...so are the demons. When we stop reaching or grasping we enter the Now. The space that holds all of your potential and power. . . . #journey #surrender #letgo #awareness #growth #change #lessons #life #possibilities #power #strength #alchemy #acceptance #biggerplan #presence #destiny #flow #family #success #freedom #release #trust #intuition #courage
Perfectionism has plagued me for most of my life. Perfectionism kept me a prisoner from the joys of life, from the beauty of creating and being who I was really meant to be. The freedom of expression and dropping my walls to create and allow magic to take form. The beauty of this life, the reason for being IS the journey of becoming, unbecoming, transformation. 
Messing it all up and making it beautiful again. It's the journey towards perfection that makes it worthwhile, because if we had it all figured out there would be nothing to strive for, nothing to uncover, nothing to learn, nothing to feel and lean into. Everything is PERFECTLY imperfect because that's where we need to be. Breakdowns and breakthroughs are two sides of the same coin. You can't have one without the other.

Ships and airplanes do it all the time. They don't fly in a perfect straight line. They're constantly adjusting to the elements around them. They don't make themselves wrong for it, they expect it because they know it's a necessary part of each and every journey they take. It's not about making ourselves wrong either, it's about taking responsibility for what IS and then taking action for WHAT IT IS TO BE. 
What if we embraced the confusion instead...asking the question, where am I being asked to let go, expand, and come alive? It's never rejection, it's redirection. Trust the process. Surrender. This moment is perfect for what's ahead. #amandaoreilly

I've learned the hard way that if you want to live an extraordinary life, you have to get rid of your plan B. There is no just-in-case, no second best, no ifs, no trying - only action. 
The moment you let Fear give you B's & C's & D's, a part of you will settle & you won't give Plan A your all. 
You will unleash a secondary story - a life, a love or a career not fully authored by your heartbeats. The deeper you settle into your Plan B, the harder it is to break free from the bloody claws of your smaller self. 
Plan A is terrifying, yes. It says: You want it all? Then give it all. That is the only deal you can make with life without cheating your heart out of it. To jump, to trust, to take another risk. Somehow a greater net is activated with each leap. 
If a specific outcome doesn't materialize, don't worry, there is no such thing as No-thing, Void or Emptiness. Life, Love and Magic will still happen. 
Because Plan A is not a thing, a person or a situation. Plan A an expansive way of operating, a paradigm that makes you squeeze the marrow out of life and keep creating beauty out of chaos and be all you can be in any situation. 
P.S. What feels like B today because you are too scared of Plan A? Dig deeper. Shake it off. Life is too short to waste it on detours. Plan A or nothing. Kinda wish I had a Plan B right now because I might just get lost in these woods .. or maybe, just maybe I am being found.

The permission to feel. 
I have always been a deeply sensitive being. From the high on top of the world highs, to the low curled up on the bathroom floor lows, one of the greatest gifts I have ever given myself was the permission to really feel it all. 
A few weeks ago I went out with some of my closest friends. We sang, danced, cry-laughed (the best emotion), til we almost peed ourselves, we felt deeply, experienced life, were alive. 
Surround yourself with the dreamers and doers, the rebels of the status quo, the troublemakers of the ordinary, the wonder-seekers, freedom-makers, jail-breakers, the unreasonable earth-quakers and dust-shakers, the ones who believe the impossible exists only to be attempted, the crazies and creative warriors, the ones who ask why-not instead of why, the I-can’t-believe-I-f'n-did-it sort of people… and learn to re-create your life with them. You may be crazy, yes, but you are NOT alone. 
Pure Magic. I can't wait for more nights just like this.

I always waited till the breaking point to actually reach out, if I even did. I now realize that this hurts me and every single person in my life wayyyyy more. Not the best look friends. 
Why did I hide? I was afraid of the outcome I thought would be true based on past experience. Yep, it's that deeply rooted. 
You see, I've been really great at hiding in my life. Behind perfectionism. Behind my service to other. Behind excuses.  I thought I was safe by keeping it all in...not so much. 
I hid out to avoid conflict, pain, emotions, growth, fear and chaos for a solid chunk of my life. So when conflict, pain, shame, guilt, unknown, and chaos met me in my reality - I did what I knew how to do - run & hide. I didn't ask for support because I was afraid of not being seen as perfect (perfect = loved) - a way to avoid shame. I didn't speak about emotions because WOAH, I can't control where that goes. Vulnerability!?! Ummm no thanks that's weak! I didn't speak up because I was afraid that I would rock the boat. 
You see, I thought that if I didn't fit into the box, then I wouldn't be loved. But, here's the kicker - no one can reach you in the box..you have to come out and engage with life. You have to be willing to be seen. To LIVE. It's this recognition that we all crave. So give yourself permission to be human AF. 
It's ok to fail, it's feedback. It's ok to feel, you're human. It's ok to ask for support or help, it's necessary. It's ok to stand in your truth & speak up - it's the key to your freedom. 
Our souls are too old to hide. Our hearts feel too much to hide. We are too aware to hide. So look deep into your heart, and reclaim all the pieces of your heart that are sitting in your past saying,

What I know today, that I didn't remember then - it is better to try and be seen than it is to hide out and die. #truth #realtalk
Being a creator of your life, instead of merely a victim or a survivor of your circumstances, is the hardest thing you’ll ever try. Rewiring a lifetime of conditioning takes a warrior spirit. Answering your hero’s call and embarking on the lifelong journey back to you is the most excruciating, yet also the most beautiful adventure you’ll ever go on. Do not attempt unless willing to sacrifice all that you thought you were, for everything you’re willing to become.
Nothing worth your while is free of pain. The greater the light, the deeper also the darkness. The means determine the end, the journey creates the destination. 
We're in our Life Lab now, we're the architects of our deepest desires, designing as we speak. 
Alchemizing. Stop drawing the same lines you're trying to erase. You're not a victim of your past or a survivor of your maybes, but the resilient creator of your NOW. ​Wings do work but only after you jump. Mountains can be moved, but only after you try. The life you desire does exist, but only if you dare to create it and embrace it when it arrives. There's a whole universe in you waiting to happen, but only when you trust yourself to let it become. Remember: Your fear's detours are the longest way home. Accept what is. Release what was. Stay ready and open to what's coming next​ because it's gonna be magical!​ I promise. #amandaoreilly

My life changed the moment I said yes.​ ​I said yes to love. To being loved. To being love. Love in all its infinite shades.​ ​I said yes to more laughing. And more crying. And more of both at the same time—my favorite emotion.​ ​
⠀
I said yes to showing up. For myself. For the people I love. For the collective. For the light that only I can bring into this world.​ ​I said yes to living instead of spectating.
⠀
I said yes to not having the answers. To risking the fall. To standing still in my own fear even when every ounce of me wants to run.​ ​I said yes to not doing it alone, knowing the road to greatness isn't meant to be traveled alone.
⠀
I said yes to owning my healing. To leaning in. Closer. And softer. And the space that lives in between the two.​ ​I said yes to feeling. Really feeling. To not shame, water down or push to the side, but to honor my heart and body for their capacity to experience love and loss, soul-ravishing desire and passion in all of its​ ​magical ​forms.
⠀
Saying yes to myself used to terrify me, because I knew once I did, and slowed down, everything I was running from would catch up to me. It did, and it took me by the hand, brushed my hair away from my shoulders and asked me to lean in and listen to what it had to say.
⠀
Fear.
Love.
Pain.
Our truth.
⠀
Sometimes we have to run away in order to know the value of what it means to stay in order to know the value of what it means to fully choose something. It's in this moment of choosing, we stop running from our layers, and instead, accept the invitation to our whole selves. It's in this moment of choosing, we also invite growth, compassion and our worth to be in existence, too. A new life happens when you make new choices = you get new results. Magic is about to occur. I see that everything was necessary for me to become aware of the upper-limit I've created my whole life. F limits. F sabotage. F watching. F that! Whatever we believe we are capable of will always be true. I believe we all deserve the richest, most love-filled amazing lives possible. Let's go create it shall we? #amandaoreilly

To not shame, water down or push to the side, but to honor my heart and body for their capacity to experience love and loss, soul-ravishing desire and passion in all of its​ ​magical ​forms. ⠀ Saying yes to myself used to terrify me, because I knew once I did, and slowed down, everything I was running from would catch up to me. It did, and it took me by the hand, brushed my hair away from my shoulders and asked me to lean in and listen to what it had to say. ⠀ Fear. Love. Pain. Our truth. ⠀ Sometimes we have to run away in order to know the value of what it means to stay in order to know the value of what it means to fully choose something. It's in this moment of choosing, we stop running from our layers, and instead, accept the invitation to our whole selves. It's in this moment of choosing, we also invite growth, compassion and our worth to be in existence, too. A new life happens when you make new choices = you get new results. Magic is about to occur. I see that everything was necessary for me to become aware of the upper-limit I've created my whole life. F limits. F sabotage. F watching. F that! Whatever we believe we are capable of will always be true. I believe we all deserve the richest, most love-filled amazing lives possible. Let's go create it shall we? #amandaoreilly
I'm a firm believer that we all need to get out of balance to find balance. We need to leave home to know where it is. Sometimes we need to lose ourselves to actually get to know who we are. 
A King will always protect the Queen. He is strength, a foundation, healer, protector, roots, logic, while she is life, a giver, backbone, intituation, a nurturer, strategic, a warrior goddess. 
United they should always stand in love, in balance, in harmony. Together they will rise. .

There is nothing that scares me more than being put on a pedestal. Last month I was asked to give a keynote speech at an Entrepreneurial summit.

There is nothing that scares me more than being put on a pedestal. Last month I was asked to give a keynote speech at an Entrepreneurial summit. RIGHT out of my comfort zone, so I knew that I had to accept. The lady interviewing me asked whats the hardest thing about being an entrepreneur? I immediately I said, "The belief that I've got it all figured out and can't mess up" ha- ha, she probably wasn't expecting that but here's the honest truth, you and I - we aren't so different. I still get knocked off my center, and feel shame, fear, sadness, you see, I believe that when we own our stuff, heal our wounds and are transparent about our needs - we set ourselves free, and others in the process. If you're not in a solid relationship with growth yet - I feel you, I used to be terrified of the unknown on the other side of change. I used to be terrified of being seen - and in a lot of ways still am....but I choose to move towards growth instead of hiding out in fear now. Why? Because that's where liberation lives...in choosing differently, letting go of the old stories, and laying the foundation for a new way of being. I'm learning to say yes to conversations, experiences, plan trips, networking and to level up in ways that ask me to expand beyond my comfort zone. I like to think of myself as a human geologist digging into the human experience and extracting nuggets of wisdom about what I've learned to help myself charter these vast oceans of human experience and the deep swells that come with being a sensitive being in a crazy world. I don't think we reach a level of so called "enlightenment" and boom all of our problems disappear with our pain...in fact, I feel the exact opposite - the more we feel into those emotions, the faster we can get in alignment with what feels good in our own hearts. The more in tune we are with our own hearts the further we can see on the horizon. As far as I'm concerned, this journey and process of unfolding never ends - and in a big way, I'm grateful for that. And for you and for the opportunity to share my journey and hope that it inspires. Find the thing that scares you the most and start there. What's your next yes?
