What does it mean to trust yourself?

The other day I had a very cool Human Design Chart Reading with a woman who my good friend Leslie recommended to me. 

It was fascinating to see the chart based on my birthplace & birth time - similar to an astrology chart.  

What was most interesting was when she said to me – and I’m paraphrasing:  “You have a set way of being – that is imprinted from the inside – vs. imprinted from the outside.  Your chart shows that you have strong knowing, instincts and intuition – and that when you are in flow with these, you are in your power.”

She went on to say:  “Your chart also has very open areas – which shows that you can be open to other people, empathize with...

Feeling Worthy of Receiving

“As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.”  ~Marianne Williamson 

Years ago I heard a great statement by Seth Godin in relation to the dawning of a new year where he said:  “You don't need a new plan for the year, you need a commitment.”

How true.  Before you make a plan, make sure that you’re committed to what you plan to do. 

Also, at the same time, make sure that you’re committed to changing course and being flexible to where the path takes you vs. feeling as if you need to control each step because it’s part of your “plan”. 

We all...

How To Not Be Hard On Yourself

 “If you want a new outcome, you will have to break the habit of being yourself, and reinvent a new self.” ~Joe Dispenza

Last week during a grueling, yet energizing workout,  I huffed and puffed and heard my quiet, nurturing voice inside me say:  “You’re doing great, keep going.” And, at that moment, I remember thinking:  “God, if you’re so nice to me, how am I ever going to ever get anything done?” 

That quiet voice inside has always been there yet I never allowed myself to hear it as often as I do now. 

In the past, when I was a self-proclaimed ‘workhorse’, the voice that got me to do things, get things done, and achieve - was the voice in...

Having An Abundance Mindset

“When you focus on being a blessing, God makes sure that you are always blessed in abundance.”  ~~ Joel Osteen

Have you ever considered that you may feel uncomfortable receiving and having more than you need?  Therefore, you only ask for what you need vs. what you truly want?  

Joel Osteen describes this well:  "If we ask with a cup we will receive a cup’s worth.  If we ask with a barrel we’ll receive a barrel’s worth."

So the question is:  What limits are you putting on how much you ask for and how much you are willing to receive?  

This question isn't limited to material things either.  It's more focused around how you want to feel when you consider allowing yourself to...

Making Time For Your Dreams

Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back. ~Harvey MacKay

How do you make sure that you keep your aspirations and dreams for the future alive while you have a bunch of screaming priorities in your everyday life that you're trying to juggle?

Also, how can you balance your need for everyday peace while making progress towards your future?  

One suggestion is:  Spend one hour a day on your dream.  

Easier said than done, I know.  Yet, it is possible.

A trick I’ve found useful is to give yourself a time limit on your dreaming.   The key is:  you definitely don’t go under that...

Courage In The Face of Fear

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare.  It is because we do not dare that they are difficult.  ~ Seneca ~

Nothing will build your confidence faster than to have courage in the face of fear.  To act when your knees are shaking and your palms are sweating.  At that moment, you are taking a BIG leap of Faith  and you have no idea what will happen.  You are forced to jump and pray a net will be found! 

I bet you've had experiences where you've looked back on something you did that was scary and thought, “Wow, I can’t believe I did that!”.  Those are the moments when you get to see what you’re really made of, especially when you did something (or many things) that you...

Fear of Being Arrogant

The other day I had a conversation with a friend who shared how worried she was about a health issue reoccurring in her life.  She was having some symptoms that felt familiar and started to go into a spiral of fear that her former health issues were returning. 

We talked about her shifting her thoughts.  Thinking positive.  Letting go of negative images and envisioning a good outcome.

This friend is like a fish to water when it comes to embracing a more positive mindset. Yet,  for some reason she was resisting this approach.

She prayed about it and then prayed some more.  Then, all of a sudden, it dawned on her. She realized that she’s held onto a lifelong pattern of being worried, fearful and scared when it...

We Teach What We Most Need To Learn

“We work on ourselves in order to help others, but also we help others in order to work on ourselves.”  — Pema Chödrön

The biggest misconception many people have is - believing that those that are called to teach and coach have it all figured out. We don’t. That’s the point.

Oftentimes I’ve found myself begrudging my circumstances - whether present or past thinking:  “This isn’t right. This shouldn’t be happening to me. Haven’t I transcended and outgrown this by now?”
These questions always served me a nice big piece of humble pie.

I’ve learned through direct experience that if you are committed to being of true service in this world, then...

How To Change Your Vibe

”The pain that you’ve been feeling can’t compare to the joy that’s coming.” ~Romans 8:18

I heard a statement the other day that really struck me .  I knew in an instant that it was true.  Here it is:  “The deeper the pain, the deeper the Truth there is to discover”.

We live in a world of contrast…opposites…light and dark…up and down….what goes up, must come down – and so on.

So, what does this mean to your life?   A whole lot.

Consider an area of your life that has royally challenged you. An area that has maybe caused you pain or at least lots of discontent.  Other areas of your life may flow easily (or easier) but this one area seems to...

Aligning Your Head & Heart

"The expression of divinity is in variety." ~Sheri S. Tepper

If you are someone who longs to follow your soul's path and purpose - you most likely struggle with the balance of what your soul needs and what your head wants.  

You may struggle with ensuring you are being responsible with your everyday decisions  - and taking care of your basic life necessities - while also honoring your soul and the evolution it craves.  

So, as with everything in life that we strive for, balance is needed.  Not balance in a perfectionism way, but balance in a way that you're acknowledging all your needs- especially the needs of your heart and your head - which are very different.

To help give some clarity around...
