When your intuition speaks, but you're not quite ready to listen to it, that's ok!
There are times when we choose not to listen to that small, quiet voice in the back of our heads. Sometimes we hear it, or we feel it - a nudge - and we know something is true, but we are not yet ready to take action on it.
When your intuition speaks, be aware of it. Cultivate your practice of hearing it, but you don't always have to take action on what it...
I want to say this is "learning" to listen, but in reality, it is a relearning or a returning.
When we are born, when we are young, all we know to do is listen to ourselves. We feel something, and we share it with those around us - even before we have words. Actually, especially before we have words. My mum reminds me that when I was a baby, I would "tell" everyone around every tiny detail that was going on within my human body! This is...
I don't know if I've ever, or recently, explained this concept of The Simply. I'll dive into it in a separate post, but the basis of the idea is that, as humans, we have a tendency to complicate everything. The harder we work for something, the better the results must be, right? Wrong.
My purpose with The Simply is to provide tools and services for life to be simple!
More on that in another post...for now, onto the topic at hand:...
You live a good life. Really, it's actually great when you really think about all that you have to appreciate!
You earn a reasonable income (even a great income, when you think about it); you have people in your life who love you and whom you love; you have a home (it might not be your dream home, or maybe it is, but it's good either way). When you reflect on your life, things are good!
And when others look at your life, they think...
This is hitting me hard these past couple of weeks: Reality is what you make it!
Think about that for a moment...what does that mean for you?
For me, it means I am experiencing a version of "reality". This particular reality has been made from my previous experiences and the beliefs and stories that have been created through those experiences. Some of those beliefs and stories may have been conscious, but many of them were likely...
Why are you crying?
What are you crying about?
You don't need to cry.
Don't cry over...!
When did you learn that it's not ok to cry?
I may have felt that it wasn't ok to cry when I was very young, but I know I learned that it wasn't ok to cry when I was a teenager. I remember riding the bus home, desperately wanting to cry, feeling the need to hold it in, then getting home and crying - sobbing.
It doesn't matter the reasons. I may...
It's taken me a long time to post this. This originated in September 2017. Something hit me during a trip to San Francisco. Something unexpected!
It started on the Wednesday night that I arrived...we were staying at a hostel for one night and, upon showing up, I discovered we didn't have a private washroom, as I had expected. We were in a room with a shared hall washroom.
And I did not react well to this!
It took me until the...
We all have stories that we believe to be true. The key is recognizing these stories and knowing which ones are no longer serving you!
Ask yourself, a year from now:
Reflecting back through your life experiences (without judgment), what stories do you repeat?
How are you numb... In your relationships? In your work? In how you handle your finances? In your body? How are you Numb in Your Life?
I had a weird dream where good people turned into zombie-like characters and inflicted harm on others.
I had a hard time understanding the dream, until I realized the zombie people were just in a trance/a daze/they were numb. They were following orders. The trance appeared to subside at points, but those...
Stop saying “I don’t know”, because, yes, you actually DO know!
How often each day do you say “I don’t know” in a day? What situations do you say “I don’t know” in?
As a coach, especially, the phrase “I don’t know” drives me crazy! Because, let’s be honest - you actually DO know!
In fact, in many cases, ONLY you know!
I’ve found three main times when...
