I'm here to help you do your work. That my friends is life coach and speaker Iyanla Vanzant's mission. She wants to feel but not just your wounds but she wants you to heal your wounds both inside and out. However, instead of taking a look at the people she helps. We're going to take a look at the woman behind the healer. One thing is for sure, her journey just like ours is just getting started.
Iyanla's Love Life
Now, I normally don't focus on this aspect of a person's life but for some reason. I'm begin told to do so. Iyanla is very much in love. In love with life. In love with her journey and in love with herself. Her partner gives her all that she needs and helps her to grow by nurturing and caring for her. Especially mentally. Iyanla is a thinker first, feeler second and actor third. So man who remains private for both of them not only gives her affection but allows her to breathe and just be. I also pick up that for her nature is a lover all it's own. Once she puts her feet on the ground or hears the birds sing. All becomes clear.
Red hot mama! I know that may sound funny. However, when I focus on Iyanla's health that's how she feels. For the first time in a long time. In shape, well and in control. Smoothies, yoga and nutrition have become very important to her in the last 2-3 years. Along with watching her carbs and focusing more on fresh, organic produce. Which is why she's become more slimmer than normal. She also learned just let a lot of shit go. Now, she does workout but she's not a fanatic about it. At least 3 times a week and no running or nothing too heavy. I pick up that her health has gotten better because she has gotten better. You see, Iyanla is the kind of woman that once she gets what she needs she is off and flying. Stay hydrated girl, and learn to balance things one at a time and you tend to carry a lot of clutter in your head. Writing things down more often will certainly solve that problem.
Fix My Life
If we thought that the past 3 seasons of Fix My Life were something. We haven't seen anything yet! Iyanla is playing no games and no fucks will be given, She going to get deeper. Some may say even meaner but it will be the tough love that we need. That they need. She's going to tackle deeper issues and that will have both talking, crying and scratching our heads. I also pick up her taking a more active role in dealing with her guests on and off camera. This next season she will be nurturing but she will also mean business. I also pick up her doing more speaking and workshops around the country and coming with a more tell it like it is approach to certain things. There will be more books as well. 3-6 more. Her goal this year and beyond is to hold up that mirror even closer to not just your face but your soul. Especially when it comes to social injustice. There's so much wants to do, is doing and so much that we don't see.
Iyanla and Spirituality
The ancestors are calling and this time she not only listens. She honors. Iyanla knows that without her faith she could not and would not do what she is begin called to do. She also is begin to led to train others who like her on the same path. She wants to teach but only with those that truly want to learn. She has grown so much in the past 10 years that to tap into her spirit and her divine that is within her is like breathing. Prayer, emotion and music are just some of the ways that Iyanla connects with the divine. The reason she does her work is because she wants us to see and become the greatly divine people that we've always been, Quite time when there is no work to do is when the divine comes to her most and there's a great connection to her mother and grandmother. They speak with her via dreams. Along with her daughter. I also pick up her growing and developing her intuitive gifts more and they are becoming stronger. They been this way for the past 4 years but now, they've led her to where she needs to be and who she needs to help. That what makes fix my life so great, along with her staff. It's a divinely inspired show.
Thank You Iyanla, for helping us to feel, deal and heal. We love you!
Love, Leo Brown :)
