Joy in the Journey

I recently retuned from a retreat in FL, with a group of wise women. We talked about the culture in which we live; where we are asked to do more, go faster, be better. And, the missing ingredient…feeling better. We sat on the beach – stopped – breathed. We gave our self PERMISSION to stop, breathe and ask our self ‘what do I need?’. We did a ‘Miracle walk’: an opportunity to notice the possible discomfort that arises when we actually give our self PERMISSION. We digested the ‘permission’, and released the ‘discomfort’. Joy followed....

Miracles

“Every day holds the possibility of a miracle.” – Elizabeth David Miracles are fascinating. I remember believing in miracles as a child. I looked for them, I craved them. When I looked for them, I would see them. During my women’s retreats, I often include a Miracle Walk. A Miracle Walk is when you take 15 minutes to walk with no conversation, no expectation, and eyes wide open. Something happens when we ‘see’ this way and yes, the miracles appear. Women come back with truly amazing stories of what they ‘saw’, that they perhaps would not have...

Just Be

“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” Eleanor Roosevelt The pressure to determine your new year’s resolutions are waning – along with the full moon – and allegedly, spring is around the corner! Today, ‘just be’. Allow yourself to be in gratitude for who you are, where you are, and what you have created. For now, let yourself be present with this moment. Relax. There will be plenty of time to dream and create. For this moment… breathe and ‘just be’. Enjoy!

How Do We Get the Positive Messaging to Stick?

We know that the positive messages elevate us and the critic wears us down. I’ve had hundreds of clients ask ‘how do I make the negative messages go away?’. The answer, ‘you don’t’. We are human and being hard on our self is part of the package. The good news is — the more we enforce the positive reminders, the softer the voice of the critic. A quick tip is shifting from our head to our heart –shifting from the critic to compassion. (Thank you Brene Brown.) It’s time to remove our blinders and shift to compassion (our 2014 Guided...

Reminders

We all need reminders to stay on track. Reminders to shift to compassion when the critic is loud. Reminders to trust when doubt creeps in. Reminders to stop and breathe when life gets so full. Reminders to enjoy this amazing journey. I’ve been preaching reminders to my clients for 20 years. Write “YES” on your mirror in red lipstick, post your affirmation cards in your car, at your desk, at your kitchen sink. The shift in perception will put you on top of the world. What’s your pinnacle view? We all need reminders. I know I do. Visit our facebook page to see some of...

Our Deepest Fear

One Autumn I had a retreat to host in CA., and one the following weekend in MI. I was speaking with my coach about coming back home to NC to work in between retreats, or staying on the west coast. She said, ‘Oh, you will stay on the west coast and see what happens”. And that I did! It was the most memorable work weeks of my life. I went to the La Costa Resort in San Diego and visited the beautiful Chopra Center and attended Michael Beckwiths’ Agape Church service in Los Angeles. A friend in CA introduced me to the wonderful Cafe Gratitude where the title of each menu item...
