Speed Up Your Success

You’re HERE, but you want to be THERE. There being some goal, vision or dream that you have for yourself.

Today I want to share with you a technique I use with my private coaching clients to help you get THERE faster and with less resistance. Often we create resistance and delays by overanalyzing how we’ll get there. So let’s drop those, and try this instead!

Using this technique, you become a match with the vibration of desire, which enables faster receiving while creating JOY in the process! You remember your inner radiance and your ability to powerfully co-create exactly what you want.

Have fun doing this quick tapping video, and let me know how it goes for you!

Empower your future not your fears

After eight hours of yoga training the other day, I “grounded” by watching an episode of Project Runway. During this episode a talented designer, Samantha, lost the runway challenge.

The pain she wore on her face reflected more than the loss. She knew she didn’t leave it all on the runway. She held back, dumbed down, played it safe. Her losing design wasn’t something that genuinely reflected her talents as a designer.

Her immediate response was, “Self-doubt, it’s really always been the thing that’s held me back. I held back because I was scared they wouldn’t get it.”

Master the Worthy Girl Mindset

Many outwardly successful, bright, beautiful women have a secret. Despite external appearances, they don’t feel good enough. That drives many of us to be overachievers, perfectionists, overly responsible, burnt out and more.

Living life this way creates internal pressure and stress. Because when our worth depends on external validation, we are only good enough when we are succeeding. It’s a joy-sucking cycle.

So let’s talk about how we can change that…

Boost your joy in 30 seconds or less

I want to share with you an awesome tool from Wild Light Warrior…because it’s so simple and quick, but also effective. Try it at least once! ☺  I discovered it kind of randomly.  It all started one night before bed. I felt excited and recommitted to using positive affirmations while reading a book.

The next morning, as I was starting to wake up, this voice inside of me went on a 30 second positive affirmation spree, which I now call a Shine Spree. Because I literally felt an extra burst of happiness throughout the day. Like I was shining and glowing all day, despite what circumstances popped up. There’s only one trick to it…

The Burden of Trying to Be Balanced

Seriously ladies, balance is a self-defeating concept that continues to elude (even torture?) women around the globe. I even believe it chips away at our self-esteem and our sense of worthiness (more on that in a moment). Today I’m encouraging you to get off the balance bandwagon >>> ditch any associated guilt trips >>> and try something else instead.

Balance has become one of those concepts we use to measure how well we’re handling life.  (We may even equate balance to giving 100% to all areas of our lives?) Regardless, we don’t live in a balanced society. The nature of our lifestyles, whether you’re a stay at home mama or a boss lady (or both), pretty much guarantees a lack of balance. We’re basically set up for failure. So why do we idealize balance, and what can we do instead?

Not feeling good enough? Try this…

Today I want to give you a taste of my secret sauce for overcoming moments of feeling like you’re not good enough. Obviously feeling unworthy is something that affects all of us, some more than others, but did ya know that it actually affects highly successful people as much if not more than the average Jane? Yup, it’s true.

Because for some of us (ahem, moi), we developed a pattern of striving for outward success to compensate for what we felt was lacking internally. Which on one hand is pretty cool – go us – we didn’t just sit on our butts and do nothing. On the other hand, it’s not so bueno because it leads to a constant cycle of joy sucking and exhaustion. If a key pillar of our worth is based on success, then we are fulfilled only when we’re winning, achieving, succeeding. Make sense?

So, here’s a few ways I’ve learned to deal with the “unworthies” (as I call them) when they come knocking…

Happiness is an Accomplishment

And so is finishing your meditation…

At a workshop over the weekend I heard that Yogi Bhajan quote: happiness is an accomplishment. And I found myself thinking, so is meditation! Because if you meditate, I know you’ve been there. And by there I mean being completely in the flow and feeling great in some meditations. In others, seconds feel like minutes, and you want to scream EFFFFFFF at the top of your lungs. (Or is that just me?) So how do you stay engaged in your mediation?

It’s Not About Willpower…

Eliminating grain and dairy will help you heal your Hashimoto’s, but willpower isn’t going to keep you from noshing on your favorite treats. Today when people see me saying no to cheese or other former delights, I often hear, “you have such willpower.” But, it has nothing to do with willpower.

Resisting cheese boils down to the very same thing that causes someone else to eat it, despite knowing it’s contributing to an inner health storm (for those of you with Hashimoto’s or similar conditions). I witnessed this a couple of weeks ago. A colleague with an autoimmune condition was told to cut grain and dairy out of her diet to help eliminate pain. As I sat across from her at dinner, she explained she “tries” to eliminate them as she ordered a meal with grain and dairy. In the next sentence she said she’s going to see yet another specialist to try to help eliminate the pain she’s experiencing.

Seven Ways You’re Wasting Energy and Creating Exhaustion

When I started exploring the root cause my fatigue, I explored the relationship between our body and our energy centers, or chakras, specifically the solar plexus chakra. The solar plexus is associated with personal power, ego, self-worth, confidence, accomplishment, transformation, and our ability to visualize success. Physically it’s connected to the liver, gallbladder, spleen, stomach, small intestine, adrenals, mid-spine area, and pancreas.

When this area has a physical imbalance, we may experience chronic fatigue, eating disorders and more. Emotionally we may experience powerlessness, greed, doubt, anger, indecision, lack of motivation or willpower, need to control, dishonoring self, low-self esteem and fear.
