Faith replaces Doubt. When thoughts of “I can’t” or “It’s not possible” creep in from time to time, I know I need to pause and switch up my mindset. Fear that we aren’t enough or can’t do it all comes up for everyone. It doesn’t mean you have to let these thoughts and feelings rule your life. Something I learned in health coaching school that has really helped me with this is the “crowd out method”. The way they use it is for food, if there is an unhealthy food you have as a go-to such as donuts, set a mental trigger that every time you crave a donut you reach for something just a bit healthier like a banana nut muffin sweetened with dates. I’ve found that this “crowd out” method works really well for my doubtful thoughts too! Every time those “what if’s” come up I remember to pause. I ask “How do I really want to feel about this?” and “How can I Empower and support myself in being someone who embodies this thing I desire to do, have, be?” or at least “How can I get my mindset and feelings to a place that’s a little bit better so I can move forward?” When I remember to engage this practice I inevitably remember my positive traits and then something interesting happens... faith enters. Faith in myself, my abilities, others, and the Universe, God, Source or whatever you call this power of Love holding us all in the fabric of life. When this works really well I get a boost of energy! Doubt stops us, faith empowers us. #doubt #faith #crowdoutmethod #positivethinking #flipthescript
Holiday cards! 🎄 This is a small spread of the cards I received this year. There is something so beautiful and personal about receiving a handwritten note. This year I received lovely holiday greetings from family, friends and clients. Reach out and let people know how much they mean to you! #christmascard #holidaygreetings #sharethelove #greetingcards #handwritten #personal #giftofchristmas
Peace Within = Peace on Earth 🌏 It is difficult and can seem hopeless sometimes living in a world where the atrocities are blasted at us through media. A world where conformity is selected for and people are rewarded for being “cool, sexy, effortless”. But will these qualities ever lead to true and lasting peace? What I’ve shared is a simple formula, yet the number of paths to get there are as many as the number of humans. Each of us has our own unique path to walk and purpose to live. And I feel Within my heart that all true life paths lead to Peace. When you know yourself fully and completely you can’t help but love yourself! When you love yourself you are at Peace. And we are one step closer within the collective of humanity to World Peace. #peace #innerpeace #worldpeace #peaceonearth
On the Winter Solstice I taught a class on Spiritual Intuition. The 7 ladies who joined me LOVED it and we all had several Aha moments and lots of joy and laughter. 😍✨ Each of us has intuition and there are reliable tools available to access and enhance your internal guidance system. The Mystery Schools of Earth have always had one main guiding tenet, “Know Thyself”. When you invest in learning tools of self-discovery, then you become your own guru, and someone who is becoming truly independent and self-directed. This is so important right now on the planet! If this interests you, I’d love to talk with you about how these tools can truly empower and serve you in your life path. LOVE ❤️ #solstice #intuition #empowerment #empoweringwomen #investinyourself
Become a Light in the Darkness. At the darkest time of the year, I invite Light into my heart and Life. My hope is to tend this flame within, to have it always burn bright, so I am never in the dark. And so I may share this with everyone who comes into my life. I have had so many dark times in my life which I wasn’t prepared for and didn’t have the tools or understand how to keep my flame going. Now it is an eternal flame because I know who I am and in knowing this I know where my internal flame is at all times and how to keep it burning bright!! During this season of holiday Spirit, I urge you to Remember that spark within and cultivate it in your life. Finding and growing this inner Light will serve you, your family, friends and community well. We need more Lights in this dark world!! Namaste, Peace, Blessings, Love and Light to you ❤️✨ #light #innerflame #heartflame #bright #eternalflame #knowthyself #spark #solstice #wintersolstice #yule
Perfectionism can slow or block your progression. Is there a goal you’ve had in mind for years but just can’t accomplish it? Are you putting off the rise of that red curtain with you, your idea, or your business at center stage? I know what that’s like and for me one of the causes was perfectionism. But really, what we call perfectionism is really fear because true perfectionism is all about doing our best, putting something out into on the world, THEN refining it based on the results. That refining is a perfecting which isn’t in itself a bad thing. It’s when we get into the mental trap that it has to be “perfect” BEFORE we put anything out there, that’s when we slow down and block our progress in life. I encourage you to be brave and seek the understanding of why this is happening. Often it is self doubt underlined by fear of rejection or failure or even if success and all the changes that would mean in one’s life! But really, are these fears enough to justify holding yourself and your dreams back? #fear #doubt #delay #perfectionist #dontdelay #nofear #nodoubt #courage #brave
Winters in the Pacific Northwest are kind of awesome IMO. I'm writing this message while in my cozy sweater, sipping on tangerine tea, relaxing and contemplating life, the Universe and everything ;) What could be better?
Yet... I didn't always feel this way about my life. I haven't always been upbeat and positive. In fact, my journey to wholeness, health and wellbeing has been a long and often bumpy one. I started out my journey of awakening over 10 years ago while in a corporate job, working on spreadsheets for 12 hours a day, totally miserable and depressed, and wondering "There has to be a better way!?"
Today... I am blessed to be truly engaged in my life - body and soul! I never thought I would ever wake up each day inspired and engaged in my daily work, it's true!, but finding the right tools and teachings and healings has made all the difference - so much so that I've dedicated my life to sharing these with you as you'll read more about later in this email.
I don't have all of the answers - and I will never claim to! Yet, I do have access to some amazing tools, techniques and teachings I've gathered along my personal journey to health, wellness and joy! And my mission is to continually engage with these in my own life as well as share these with you and support you as you are ready to take that next step - however big or small - towards a better life for yourself.
In this holiday season, I ask you to look within, to seek and embrace your inner Joy! One simple way that I do this is to close my eyes, take a few deep breaths in a comfortable and calm setting, and focus on ONE thing that I am truly grateful for for at least 5 minutes. That's it! If you try this I bet you'll be surprised how GOOD this will make you feel. The more that each of us consciously engages and expresses this Joy from within, the more healing will take place, and the brighter our whole world becomes. I'm ready for that world, how about you?
with Deep Gratitude and Love,
