3 ways to connect with yourself for better clarity and focus.

 

The summer break is now over here in Europe. More kids are back at their desks, meeting their teachers and getting homework. Whether you are a Mom or not, the Fall season is upon us and that means summer is now coming to a close.

What if you didn’t get a good chance to relax and recharge this summer?

In this video I give you 3 simple ways to connect with yourself and take time. You can plug these in at any point during your day. 

These steps I share are:

  1. Ask – What do I feel in my body right now?
  2. Ask – What do I need right now?
  3. Sit in silence. Or in other words, be with yourself. 

Number 2 takes a little consideration based on the answer and where you may be at the time you do this. If your need is to read a book, for example, but you are sitting at the office make sure to come back to this later in the day when you can. It is so important to find ways to meet your needs even if they seem trivial at the time you ask the question. If you don’t mean your needs, and they go left unchecked for too long then eventually you will expect them to met in other ways or by someone else! This could manifest in a number of ways in your life. Chief among them, feeling exhausted. Take time for yourself. And please make it a priority. Both your body and your heart will thank you for it in many ways.

Are you just starting out on your self-love & self-growth journey? Do these tips help you see that more space can be created in your life? Or do you need to talk more on this?

Are you ready to move forward & make a real life transformation?

You have been looking for someone to get you moving, not just motivate you but help you to take ACTION. If this video made you think more on what you want to change…then, it’s time for a call!

You wouldn’t believe what a 20-minute conversation that is fully focused on you can reveal. This call is to sort out whether or not:

 

  1. You are ready to work with a coach dedicated to your transformation.
  2. I’m the coach who can help reach your dream.
  3. We can create a plan that will guide us towards your success.  
  4. We get started as soon as next week.

How to shift out of belief systems in the present moment.

 

In this video I walk you through what beliefs and belief systems are and how they contribute to our overall thinking. Some coaches call these limiting beliefs.

I use belief system because it is one thought process that affects many life situations. I talk about the top three, I see in my practice with clients:

1. Not good enough
2. I need more knowledge (before I can do that thing)
3. Imposter syndrome: who will believe me or listen to what I have to say

I give a fast-tracked way of working through a belief system that has it’s hold on you rather than you taking time to find the source of the established “limiting belief”. It’s about having awareness and shifting out of it, not over examining them.

These steps I share are:

  1. Connect to yourself – this may be through meditation, light housework (something that doesn’t require a lot of thought), or taking a walk. Whatever works for you to slow down and connect.
  2. Once you are in connection, ask yourself this question about your thoughts: Is this true about me? (Byron Katie’s practice).
  3. Then ask, What can I do to shift out of the way I am feeling? Don’t let this confuse you about not being with your feelings. This is a belief that makes you believe something that is not true.

Sometimes in life we get stuck on repetitive thoughts and these steps help you become aware of it, give it less power, and move you out of it in the present moment. Does this cure the situation for good? It will if you practice it. More and more you will have less of this belief system and that is when you know you’ve conquered it.

Remember it took 21 days to download the belief and who knows how long it has been there. This helps you move forward. NOW.

Let me know if this steps have helped you in the comments.

WHERE is your heart leading you?

There is something you may want or desire in your life but sometimes life gets too busy to slow down and take the time to really look at what it would mean or take the steps to make those changes.

When you work with a coach you are saying to yourself, NOW is the time to follow your heart. But not only that, you are also saying you are READY to do something about it and not just dream your life away. I’m looking for that type of woman. The one who:

  • has a burning desire to change her life (in one area or ALL areas of her life)
  • has an intuition that there is more to life than what she has been currently living.
  • has a growth mindset and wants to live a fuller more joyful life.
  • is following her own spiritual path.
  • is ready to commit to herself by working with a coach.

If this sounds like YOU then let’s have a chat online to see if I can support you in making change happen in your life today.

Once all 5 spots are filled, I will not be open again until Spring/Summer. Please book your call to see if this is right for you.

How to free yourself of judgement with forgiveness

The other day I was talking with a friend and this is what I said to her,
“Human beings are not finite. We are always evolving.”
I was a little surprised when it came out but then I thought about it. Here’s what I meant.
We all go through times in our lives that we are busy with something inside. Sometimes we may be feeling sad, lonely, lost, or in the process of healing a past hurt. These things take energy and thoughtfulness to sort through for yourself. When someone is in this process they may appear to not be themselves or do and say things that are harmful.  They may not be who everyone expects or needs them to be in that moment or phase in life. But let’s say you have time stamped them to always forever be that “way”. You have chosen to keep them in that place. And you’ve decided who they are by assigning this to them and for them. This is called, judgement. And it locks you and that person in a prison of time.
Would if its many years later and they have resolved what was plaguing them inside? How do you see them? Are they still that person you think they are?
I’m sure if you are reading this you can identify on both sides of this situation. When we judge someone for something they did or the way they were we have imprisoned them into a role or deed. And in a way that traps us too. Because who were you in that time? And how is it you were the better one? Maybe you both had to grow through this shared experience no matter who was right or who was wrong. A lesson most definitely emerged for each of you. If you parted ways you will not know where or how that person grew. But would if you could forgive them and understand that these odd injustices we suffer from one another are actually gifts in service to your own personal development. But would if you don’t forgive them? And continue to hold them to that time, vilifying them as being the deed they had done instead of seeing them as they truly are, human beings who are growing and learning and making mistakes.
Are you able to forgive?

Who do you need to release?

How can you find it in your heart to forgive yourself and the other?

AND WHY do I need to do this?

This is a controversial thought and process for sure. A few years ago a woman who survived the Holocaust forgave a man who was a Nazi in the middle of a court room. No one understood why she was doing it nor how she could do it. Her name is Eva Kor and these are her words about forgiveness.
 As I did that, I felt a burden of pain was lifted from me. I was no longer in the grip of hate; I was finally free.

Forgiveness is really nothing more than an act of self-healing and self-empowerment. I call it a miracle medicine. It is free, it works and has no side effects.

I believe with every fibre of my being that every human being has the right to live without the pain of the past.

This is not a process that you can force before you are ready. But when you are ready to forgive someone, it may take some effort just as did the thoughts of holding that person there took in the first place. Once you release the energy of judgement & resentment through forgiveness for all (both you and the person), you will see changes rapidly in your life.
I’m borrowing this prayer from Gabrielle Bernstein that is simple and a good start to freeing you and the other person.
“I choose to see this differently.”
By saying this out loud or softly in your head,  you will see a way to forgiveness and take back the power of love that resides in your heart.
One more thing, forgiveness is not about accepting bad behaviour. It is releasing the emotions that tie you to that time. It truly is a gift that comes from the heart. It’s even written in the word: FOR GIVE
And that is a powerful thing.

What do you think about forgiveness?

Who do you need to free?

When you are reaching for a goal, what makes you unstoppable?

“In the QUEST towards any goal or dream in your life this is key: You must love & believe in yourself wholly.”

This may not always be apparent to most of us.

What is it to truly love yourself & believe yourself when you have a goal you are reaching? Does this mean it must be a constant and if it isn’t you should just give up now?

Most of us understand or know that you must believe in yourself. But love yourself?  Where does that fit in here?

When reaching for a goal or a big dream there is no straight path to succeeding. You must be prepared for fall backs, unforeseen events & obstacles, and a whole lot of challenges. These things are meant to strengthen your resolve to keep climbing up that mountain until you reach the top. But,

Would if you falter? Would if you hear the voices that beat you down that make you think in fact, you can’t do it? Who is gonna save you? Who is gonna get you through it when you are on the side of mountain, by yourself, holding on for dear life?

Here is where the love comes in.

You must be prepared to love yourself through the darkness. You must be able to self-motivate so that you can continue on and get back on course. When you fully love yourself through any type of achievement, goal or big dream you become resilient, a warrior, confident and self-assured. When your inner love is activated and strong, a wisdom comes to supports you and guides you towards your dream. 

There will always be these challenging moments along the path to success. But when  you are strong inside and love & believe in yourself wholly, when you finally grab that goal, reach that big dream or the get to the TOP of that mountain…

You will know you can do anything you want in this life. Because…You are unstoppable.

What is your mission in life?

 

I remember when I was younger I always found the question, where do you want to be in the next 5 years?, frustrating and oh, a little irritating. It was usually only asked in job interviews. Which made it even worse because you had to temper it against the actual job you were going for and figure out how you might sound, say, if you really wanted that person’s, the one who is interviewing you, position. You don’t want to come off as TOO ambitious or full of yourself, right?😉

That’s not an easy situation or question neither is this what’s your mission question. It takes careful consideration & reflection. And often, it requires help and a sounding board to find it. Especially if for awhile now you have been doing things, such as staying with that job in that company that you don’t love, that aren’t necessarily in alignment with your values or your mission.

But if you don’t know what your mission is how then do you find it?

You start by listening to your heart.💓 What makes you fill up with joy? When you are doing that thing, does the time disappear? These questions are a start and how you answer them are clues. Once you know your mission, life gets easier, decisions become clearer and things get more FUN!

 

Want more help on finding your mission?
