In the process of waking up, there are many stages and each has their exciting pieces and the parts that are full of fear.
One of my most feared places during this process is looking at the gap between where I am now, and where I want to be.
If you have dreams, this gap can strike insurmountable fear into any mere mortal!
And yet, the only way to get there is to keep moving forward.
Sometimes I get scared of even looking at ...
This work isn't sexy, and it may not be quick, but you will feel strong and confident in knowing that these are life-long, sustainable changes.
I'm not going to give you the answers. I will support you and encourage you, but I will not hand you the answers because they would be my answers, not yours. True, lasting, sustainable change can only come from you doing the work and finding your own answers.
It may not be easy, but it also...
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...
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...
Are you familiar with the non-physical entity Abraham Hicks?
For those of you who are not, a (very) quick introduction to them is this: Abraham is a group of non-physical entities that speak through (are channeled by) a woman named Esther Hicks. Through Esther's meditative state, Abraham sends Esther clumps of thought and Esther verbalizes them. Abraham is one of the teachers of the Law of Attraction.
Abraham brings about many different...
So often I find my throat tight, caught, thick, constricted. Even as I type this, I can feel the constraint closing my throat - holding me back - keeping me silent.
I feel overwhelmed by how much there is to speak out about! What do I start with? What do I focus my attention and energy on? What matters the most to me? It all matters the most to me! I care about it all!
So, where can I best focus my attention?
I can use my life, my voice,...
Life is so full of "shoulds", "coulds", "would haves"...blech!
During a coaching session, I wanted to create a way to bring more joy into my morning routine. I love waking up and practicing yoga and I love the idea of waking up and sitting in meditation, but when the alarm actually goes off in the morning, I don't leap out of bed to do either of those things!
As much as I want to do them, there was something that had them as "shoulds" in...
Disclaimer: I felt called to write this post. This is my niche! I love making these lessons feel accessible! I love the idea that you can create your life, no matter what your background and past experiences are! That said, I am feeling incredibly fearful of actually posting this because I don't want to lead people down a path they don't know how to get out of. Please, listen to your inner knowing. You know yourself better than anyone....
Do you also experience this? When you get super excited about something, then you get in your own way!?
You know that you're in your way.
You know that you're making excuses or blowing up the challenge.
You know that the next step is just to take a step!
Yet, that deceptively friendly voice inside your head starts to question your big goals. And you listen. Because you always have. It's easy. It's habit. You may not even know that...
