Breathing Technique to Overcome Procrastination

Breathing Technique to Overcome Procrastination

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.

Clearing the Old, Calling in the New Ritual

Clearing the Old, Calling in the New Ritual

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.

Finding Peace in the Discomfort of Growth

Finding Peace in the Discomfort of Growth

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.

Overcoming Being an Introvert to a Public Speaker

Overcoming Being an Introvert to a Public Speaker

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.

My First Breathwork Experience

My First Breathwork Experience

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.

It's Not Fair

It's Not Fair

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.

What Is Awakening?

What Is Awakening?

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.

How to Grieve in a Healthy Way

How to Grieve in a Healthy Way

I learned early on in my life the different ways people grieve by watching them. I was able to form my own path to grief; a way to accept and to connect with the spirit after the human form has dissipated. I've worked with many clients over the past ten years on grieving and rebirth after the death of a loved one. The common denominator is that there is no way around it... the only way is through the grief.

The Importance of Self-Forgiveness

The Importance of Self-Forgiveness

Nobody is perfect. We are human. We make mistakes. We forget self-care. We don't prioritize rest. We forget to ask for help. We forget to keep up with our personal finances. It is okay not to be perfect. But what happens is we judge ourselves when we aren't perfect. Here's how to free yourself of self-judgment.

Power of Manifestation

Power of Manifestation

I was so inspired by the women of Boss Ladies Magazine work session this past week. As usual, we started off our time together by circling the room, each one of us sharing one challenge and one win for the week, and one thing we would like to manifest.  Some women had trouble connecting with their wildest manifestations. Others squealed with delight and embodied their manifestation while sharing with such intensity that it left the group speechless. We thought their manifest share was their win for the week.

Do you ever feel the need to get away, escape and be free? It is your soul calling and texting to you. It is a beckoning for you to peel back the layers of protection into total surrender, into a love we've never known, into a life of out-of-your-mind choices and actions.
