This Question Puts The Power Back In Your Lap

By |2022-11-15T20:24:42+00:00November 15th, 2022|

  Cycles of change...the seasons, human development, planetary shifts. When we look at these cycles with curiosity we naturally ask “how?” How do the seasons change? How do humans develop? How does the planet shift? The most empowering way we can look at ourselves and our experiences is to ask “how?” Circumstances in our lives, be they negative or positive, deserves fair inquiry. When you jump to the question of “why” you move out of fair inquiry. [...]

Powerful Results Come Through Powerful Awareness

By |2022-10-12T19:51:45+00:00October 12th, 2022|

  Imagine something you’ve wanted for a while... Okay, now slow down and ask yourself this question: What might you lose that you value when you finally get this thing that you want? ... At first glance, you may say, "Nothing!" But then we must ask, "Why don't you have it yet?" Why don't you have this thing you want? We stay in this position of wanting something but not actually getting it because of something called 2nd [...]

I Promise to Never Know You…

By |2022-09-08T21:24:09+00:00September 8th, 2022|

  I heard a quote once that was so unusual it gave me an entirely new perspective on relationships. A man said to his partner when renewing his vows... “I promise to never know you.” At first, I thought, “What? I don’t get it.” It seemed counterintuitive, like an insult to his partner that he wasn’t interested enough to get to know her inner workings. But then I thought about it and it hit me. [...]

Stop Telling Yourself This Lie…

By |2022-08-19T18:09:16+00:00August 19th, 2022|

  I have found there are five words we have all likely spoken at one time or another to ourselves, usually after having experienced something painful or doing something we regret. These five words are: "I should have known better." These words may seem innocent (and accurate) enough on the surface, but really, the only purpose they serve is a way to beat yourself up. Maybe you’re going through a job loss or a breakup and [...]

By |2022-08-03T17:04:01+00:00August 3rd, 2022|

Did you know that there are two questions that can instantly steal your power without you even knowing it? Asking either of these questions gives your inner authority away to someone else. What are these two disempowering questions? They are: "What should I do?" "What's the right thing to do in this situation?" How many times have you found yourself in a difficult circumstance and found yourself asking these on repeat Asking either of these [...]

How To Let Go, Move On, & Heal After Heartbreak

By |2022-07-22T21:57:02+00:00July 22nd, 2022|

Sometimes, it's easy to get overwhelmed in our world as adult humans. There’s work, relationships, bills, pets, and kids to deal with as well as a laundry list of other demands to constantly contend with. It can be easy to forget that there are parts of our psyche still operating from a childlike perspective, and in fact, sometimes running the show. One of these parts of ourselves is the part of us that actually falls [...]

How To Build Unflappable Confidence and Banish Insecurity FOREVER

By |2022-06-16T00:21:10+00:00June 16th, 2022|

Do you ever feel like insecurity is sabotaging your connection with someone you love? In my now decade of coaching, here are some of the most common ways I've seen that create unnecessary insecurity in your life. 1. You're mistakenly thinking that relationship confidence comes from what you are DOING and/or 2. You think your confidence comes from what you HAVE... Both of these are brilliant strategies for remaining alone and insecure for the rest of your life. The [...]

Overachievement Is Self Abandonment

By |2022-04-18T18:34:20+00:00April 18th, 2022|

Meditation teacher and writer Jon Kabat-Zinn famously said, “wherever you go, there you are” and it couldn’t be more true in the context of achievement. Our culture applauds achievement, and sure, it feels good to have accomplishments under our belt. But the dark side of achievement is something we don’t often hear about, yet it’s very real. I consider myself a recovering over-achiever. In my 20s and early 30s, I was constantly setting goals, reaching [...]
