Happy New Year!
Wow! What a ride 2022 was! I know many experienced similar things, such as an unrevealing of the past and repositioning for the future in mysterious ways. Mysterious because we are being prepared for expanded, never experienced realities. Kind of scary and unnerving because we are bumping up against many internal issues that are reflected in our outer world. However, the more aligned you are with your Soul, the better you will feel. The awakening and need for a more conscious reality is moving us back into our Center.
Turning of the Tide
At the beginning of every year is a time when we are changing cycles, which means we are releasing elements of the past so we can move into our new cycle with more clarity.
The end of 2022 and the first few weeks of this year has been extra difficult for some as we have been pulled back to reexamine, resolve and release the past. This “unraveling” has many layers!
This is a time to be patient with yourself and...
Great leadership requires vulnerability – the willingness to break through the status quo and expectations to move boldly into new territory. This new territory is our future, and it must be taken through an authentic, soul-centered position to help our communities, clients, students, and families rise into their greatest potential. The way of our future is together, valued, and united.
The topic of vulnerability came to the forefront of my mind today because a shaman who has invited me to a personal sweat lodge ceremony next week asked what my thoughts or feelings were about this sacred rite. I told him, vulnerability. At first, he assumed I was fearful of the state of vulnerability, because most people are afraid. But I corrected him, by explaining my belief from my own experience.
I told him that to be vulnerable is to be in a position of strength, not weakness, when we are aligned with our Soul. When we are in alignment with our Soul, or our Soul-Centered Purpose, we are...
Doesn’t that sound amazing? Live life fulfilled. The sad thing is most people don’t.
I have seen countless individuals who have tremendous financial wealth, a thriving business, beautiful homes, boats, cars, everything that they believed would bring them happiness, yet deep connection with loved ones, fulfillment and joy is still elusive for them. If anything, they feel frustrated, lonely, misunderstood, and have strained relationships with those they love.
Don’t get me wrong, many who have risen to the top of their industry have figured it out, but not as many as you might think.
Money is a wonderful tool to help you achieve and receive many things, but it does not provide real happiness or fulfillment – you do.
Quite often, business owners and executives sacrifice their wellbeing, and relationships believing that they are doing it for their loved ones, to leave a legacy behind or whatever justification they are using. This is when they build their own trap...
One of the most important things I teach my clients is to differentiate between whether their thoughts and beliefs are truly their own or not.
This is key when we consider whether we are aligned with our true Soul-Centered Purpose.
We have been inundated with others’ beliefs, opinions, and thoughts from the moment we were born. Actually, it begins prior to our birth. Our ancestors’ beliefs are hardwired into our DNA. Beliefs and the behaviors they initiate, no matter their origin remain until they are changed.
How do we know whether our thoughts and beliefs are truly from our authentic self or not? We must change a fundamental behavior and bring our energy, focus and attention within the self.
Let me explain.
The thoughts and beliefs that are from an external source, such as society, family, friends, etc. may not be what your heart knows as your authentic truth. Often there is an internal discomfort or conflict around a thought or belief that you may have desensitized...
