I take my clients through an exercise that is so simple, yet so transformative, and often times the first time we’ve ever felt truly heard and understood. It’s called having a loving conversation with yourself. In the article I take you through real life examples of how we talk harshly with ourselves and how we can shift into loving conversations.Read More
What often happens when we start to identify and lean into our dreams is that our ego wants to keep us safe and the it shows up in the form of limiting beliefs. Our mind starts telling us why our dreams can’t happen before we even start. This can happen so quickly, and often times in such a clever way, that you aren’t even aware. This journal entry will show you how I help clients move through limiting beliefs into creating new ones that do support them.Read More
I discovered Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) also known as Tapping, when I was leaving my consulting career and stepping into being a full time entrepreneur. To say that I was afraid during this transition would be an understatement. Feeling terrified would have been more accurate. Read here on how I used EFT to move through my deepest fears into inspiration and abundance.Read More
Most people set intentions in the morning before starting their day, but what about evening rituals and preparing ourselves for the night? Read here for the most powerful bedtime ritual I use to manifest, restore, and energize.Read More
I receive a lot of questions from clients who are still working in a career or job that they don’t like, but haven’t full transitioned out of yet. This puts clients in an challenging position, that is similar to when you are still living with someone even after you’ve separated, divorced, or broken up. It is clear that there’s nothing left, but you are still there until you can find a new place for yourself. So, how do you stay happy, focused, and energetically protected in a job that you hate, do not enjoy doing, and could even be a toxic?Read More
Procrastination is one of the most discussed topics in coaching sessions. Where does it stem from? How can we move through?
As with most obstacles and challenges, we can often want to fix them. Instead, true, sustainable change and transformation from obstacles and challenges comes through understanding and healing the core issue. We can fix the challenge, or we can heal it. My method of coaching centers on healing.
Procrastination can stem from many sources, such as fear of failure, excessive perfectionism, low energy levels, and lack of focus. So, where does fear of failure and perfectionism come from? At the core is our inherent worth, shame, guilt, and lovability.Read More
We are entering that time of the year where the temperatures and darker days invite us inside, not only snuggling on the sofa, but inside of ourselves to reflect on 2018 and recharge for 2019.
My belief is that we must clear away debris before there is room for new energy to enter. This includes decluttering the mind, beliefs, stories, energetically, spiritually, emotionally, as well as our tangible physical space. This is the mission for my work in the world, and for my ending and beginning ritual.Read More
Growth is not comfortable. If it was more people would be going to the gym, leaving that lifeless relationship, putting energy behind the business idea in their heart. Growing requires stretching to new levels. Growth asks us to go somewhere we haven’t gone before so the path is unknown, uncertain and can feel scary. Growth is also not linear so we can easily take two steps forward and two steps back before moving three steps forward. But growth is inevitable and is the only thing we can rely on. If we are not growing, we are dying.Read More
Letting go of control.... Phew, am I being offered opportunity after opportunity to learn the next level of this concept. Letting go of control is a common phrase in the self development world but what does it really mean and how do we practice it? Below you’ll find real life situations and practical ways of letting go.Read More
I am an introvert through and through. Regardless of what people might think or see on the outside, I was that child and adult until just recently, who got purple splotches when talking to strangers or speaking in front of a group. As a child I was too shy to talk to my teachers, extended aunts and uncles. Through my adulthood I pushed myself outside of my comfort zone but with a lot of resistance and awkward moments. So, for me to willingly register to have a booth at an expo and publically speak was short of a miracle.Read More
Something is bothering you. A challenging situation at work, your relationship isn’t working out the way you had hoped it would, your kids are testing your patience, you’re having trouble finding a job and money is tight. These are some of the challenges that my clients have struggled with this week alone. We all have challenges and things that disturb our peace. What matters more than fixing the problem, is looking at how we are relating to ourselves as we go through the issue.Read More
I see it over and over again from women I talk to at my circles and in discovery calls. I found myself in the same situation over and over again too. How do you hire a coach when your finances are limited? In my experience, and in a lot of the coaching books, when people make a choice to be ALL IN to life, this energetically propels you to move mountains, and life brings abundance ALL IN to you. Probably more so than you ever have in your life. This is where the magic happens. And yes, it is scary as hell. Probably the scariest investment you will ever make.Read More
Autumn is a time to harvest, release and let go. Gathering herbs, harvesting vegetables, bundling and canning them for the winter was something that my neighbor did each year. As I grew up, went to college, entered young adulthood, I lost contact with the rituals and ceremonies underneath of the season. But my soul remembered and longed to reconnect with the pink sunsets and geese flying south for the winter, those leafless branches that looked like black skeleton bones against the dusk sky. Over the past few years of integrating Breathwork into my daily life and studying shamanism, that ancient, tribal, witchy part of me that had been in the closet, has been reborn. Here are some of my favorite herbs, rituals and ceremonies for fall new moon, full moon and autumn equinox.Read More
I can't tell you how many times in the past I would have an idea, write it down, and then let it fade away in a journal, stashed in my drawer underneath sentimental cards. I usually have at least one person in every batch of new clients that has that notebook full of entrepreneurial ideas that they never take action to build. You feel me?
That is why I've been studying some of my most successful clients, and tracing my own times of rapid growth and stagnation. What have I found? Being decisive is key and in order to be decisive someone has to be connected to and trust themselves. This is a lot of the work I do as a coach with my clients. Teaching them to trust their gut and be decisive with it.Read More
If you want the short story, here it is. The roller coaster of keeping my life looking perfect and calm on the outside with a successful career, nice car, apartment by the ocean, yet feeling utterly miserable inside became too exhausting to continue. Deep down I knew there was a better life for me. A happy life. A fulfilling life. A soulful life. A healthy life. If you want the longer version, keep reading.Read More
I admit it. I entered that breathwork class with a bit of skepticism. I thought I had accessed all there was to experience to a certain extent. However, simultaneously I was willing, open and ready to know myself, my path more profoundly and intimately. I found myself at this interesting juxtapose that I'd experienced other times in my life during adolescence, college, young adulthood. Everything looked good on the outside, but everything felt ungrounded and untethered on the inside. My life was good, but I wanted great.Read More
Forgiveness is a hard concept to grasp. Especially when we feel justified in our resentment when someone has done something "wrong" or "bad" to us. However holding onto resentments has detrimental effects on our health, both physically and mentally.Read More
Do you ever find yourself saying this? If so, you're not alone. Usually what triggers us into saying this phrase is that we set an intention for something to happen, become attached to that intention happening exactly the way we envision it, and then become resentful when it doesn’t happen. Getting triggered and feeling like "it's not fair" is an awesome opportunity to practice your consciousness skills, your mindfulness tools, and your spiritual practices.Read More
What happens when you are sleeping versus awake? The eyes are closed and you are unconscious to what is happening in human life. What happens when you are spiritually asleep versus spiritually awake? The eyes are open and you are unconscious to what is happening in your human life.
What I've found in watching myself and my clients transition and up level is that there are three distinct layers in the process of awakening.Read More
"If you are happy, notify your face."
My mother used to say this to me as a child. When I was sad or frustrated, I hated hearing this common phrase, because it felt hard to smile when I wasn't happy. At other times in my life when I was learning how to feel my emotions for the first time, I didn't want to bypass my true feelings and fake a smile. I had done that for too long. But now as an adult, who understands the power of a smile, I understand the wisdom beneath my mom's words.Read More
