What if you could be happy even if others aren’t?

Ever have your positive outlook hijacked by a negative person?  Ever wonder how or why that occurs? Or, more importantly, how stop?    

Unfortunately, most of us are programmed to go into heaviness of life in order to bring lightness to it.

(Aka we are drawn to heavy people and situations thinking that the path to a better world is by lightening their load!)

But what if you could just choose what was light from the get-go? With no need to lift up – or drag! – others along with you?

Are you looking for more freedom in your life?

To hear your inner desires and be able to navigate towards them?  Without getting distracted or pulled off-course by others?

We all desire freedom. But so often our ideas of what freedom is or what creates it limits us.

We try to "win" it by fighting for our independence.

Taking a stand, drawing boundaries and justifying why we are doing what we're doing...

These seem to offer a sense of freedom at first. But it isn't long until we create tension and waste energy by trying to hold that line.

What if ultimate freedom - the knowing that you are inherently free! - was a key in changing this?

To live strong in your desires, confident in yourself and relaxed at the same time?

It's a very different possibility then most choose...  but you can! 

Tune in to this week's podcast to discover how to:

  • Stop getting distracted by external stimuli
  • Move beyond co-dependent relationships, self-doubt and lack of clarity
  • Cultivate strength and softness to live a life full of joy and creativity
  • Navigate life on your own terms

What possibilities await in the shades of grey?
 
The world is so polarized currently and seems to be getting more by the day.
 
These extreme viewpoints have a ripple effect in our life. They creep in and filter our viewpoint and our choices.
 
When you couple that with our need to be right and defend our position, we live a life of tension. unhealthy dynamics and inauthentic living.
 
What if you could choose something different?
 
To navigate life in a way that wasn’t taking reality as they hand it to you. Or by fighting it. But by fine tuning your awareness and making conscious choices along the way?
 
The result? Elegant, peace-filled and authentic living. And access to the full spectrum of possibilities.

What if your presence was the missing element for change in your life (& the world!)?

Our relaxed presence - the willingness to bear witness and hold space for others - is so powerful.

Most of us are shy to embrace this. After all, it’s uncomfortable. And so much easier to turn a blind-eye or only deal with the surface layers.

The tools shared in this episode will allow you to melt drama and discomfort. All the while giving the things in your life you wish would change the space to do so.

The result? Calm, peaceful and sustainable change.

  • A-ha’s on “energy leakers” in your life
  • How to stop hiding, keeping secrets, fighting others (& yourself!) and feeding the beast
  • 4 elements of creation (from Access Consciousness)
  • Exercise to release deeper emotional pains for more freedom

Do you feel like you are missing something if you don't have a strong stance on what you believe?

The world is saturated in personal biases, hidden agendas and polarized viewpoints. We often feel that if we don’t have the same then we are wrong in some way.

So, we learn to mimic this way of life. We start picking sides and taking stands.

With this we waste time and energy trying to justify our choices to the nay say-ers. And building up enough gusto to have the stick-to-it-ness that others do.

Unfortunately, we lose our true success makers this way; adaptability, flexibility and mobility.

There is freedom beyond right and wrong. Not to mention more creative power and relaxation of life!

Are the relationships in your life supporting your best self?

We don’t pay enough attention to the impact our relationships have on our sense of worth, self-confidence and ability to create a life we love.

When we downplay the erosive role an un-healthy dynamic can have in our world we inevitably set ourselves up for silent stressors, energy suckers and those reactive buttons that the toxic people in our lives continually love to push.

If you are looking for a greater quality of life, feeling good in your own skin and some very practical how-tos to re-write the story of your relationships this is a must listen to episode!

What if every wrongness about you is actually a strongness in disguise? 

We all have brilliances that can be used to create a life we love.

But a lot of the time these brilliances are hidden, twisted and mis-understood.  Sometimes, in more extreme cases, they win us life-long labels, roles to play out and boxes that are hard to break free from.

Whether you have been exploring what’s right about you for a while and are curious what other raw material you have to play with or are just starting to release your inner enemy and blocks of the past –

This conversation will offer you tools to come out of self-judgment and embrace the path of self-exploration.

Tune in to discover:

  • 3 keys to kick start & deepen this journey of self-allowance and expression
  • How we get locked into labels, roles and “boxes” (& how to break free!)

Where has other’s lack of stillness or your discomfort with stillness taken you out of a sense of yourself?

What if no matter what came at you from the outside – or up for you from in the inside - you were able to have a sense of peace, calm and possibilities in every moment?

And what the stillness you have been seeking was simply a sense of home in yourself?

What lightness can you add to your living?

It’s way too easy to get mired in the heaviness of the world around us, even when on a self-discovery / conscious path...

We are taught that hard work is what produces results, solving problems is the way to freedom and that forward movement in life comes only after you remove all obstacles in your way.

This is the OPPOSITE of what is true!

It’s the lightness that sets us free and allows us to not only become who we desire to be but gives us the ability to live as that as we move through our day to day lives.

It’s by bringing clarity, honesty and non-judgment to what is really going on and what we would like to be different that allows us to start to move and change.

Does navigating the changing nature of life come easy for you?

How often do you cling to your favorite moments not knowing what will come next?

So often we have moments that are snap shots of perfection; a happy family moment, a beautiful day, a new adventure, a pinnacle of success.

We are so blown away by the beauty and joy but at the same time are fearful of losing it in the next moment that will come to pass.

Body tension, control tactics, wistful longing and disappointment can follow.

When the world's anxiety invades your space how do you regain a sense of calm and choice?

We’ve all had times of anxiety – especially given the current circumstances of the world.

That feeling when the worlds upset crosses the threshold of being “out there” and comes into our body.

Our heart-rate picks up, our breath shortens and our mind becomes a flurry of what-if scenarios.

Before you know it you’ve lost presence with your body, the current moment and the choices you have available to see your way through.

This episode has my go-to trick to reversing this “take-over” to find a sense of calm, presence and helps you regain your choice in the face of intensity (it’s much needed right now!)

In times of stress do you chose for the me or the we?

Humans are interesting creatures…

When times of lack, uncontrollable circumstances or fear come they tend towards the me world.

The helping hands, generosity of spirit and simple changes to behavior to create more the whole go away in favor of looking out for #1.

It’s a tough way to live; causing more stress, less support and at times shameful choices that go against our better nature.

How do you find yourself in the noise of life?

Have you put your creativity on the back burner?

As we grow most of us are taught that creativity isn’t an important aspect of a successful life.

We prioritize our creative whims in favor of getting through our to-do lists, achieving a goal or caring for those around us.

Very few of us place creative outlets, exploration and expression in the “must-do” category which creates all sorts of havoc on our emotional well-being. 

Get ready for some out-of-the box ways to look at life as a creative project and a big ole boost to the fun-factor in your life!
