Your soul wants more– it is the natural state of expansion.
Your soul wants more– can you feel it?
It does demand it– but you, yes you….have been pushing it down for YEARS!
Yes you have!
Most of us have–most of us have been programmed from a young age to not want- effectively, to not expand.
So- now as an adult we are conflicted about wanting more.
This conflict is at the root of being stuck.
This abundance confusion is at the root of low self-esteem.
Soon enough we rationalize why we don’t feel great and we rationalize why we don’t have more!
You Deserve it All.
What is the problem then?
Your Imagination is your problem.
The problem is that you have not learned how to accept your good.
Perhaps your experiences don’t open you to it.
Are you like my 39 year old client last year?
Her spirit was kidnapped, stolen and beaten beyond recognition!
Who were these thieves?
How did she let them in?
They were frequent visitors.
These thoughts, feelings and therefore reality had been visiting her for a while!
She thought it was what life was all about.
Making progress or making excuses?
You have strong filters of how you look at life and your possibilities: YOUR BELIEFS!
Your BELIEFS determine everything.
Your beliefs of you and the world are the filters you live through—
Everything in your life is filtered through your beliefs.
Beliefs are everything,
You can rewrite the story.
Every day my clients are rewriting their stories.
A nurse, 45 lost her job from chronic migraines- now is thriving.
An HR professional, fired for speaking her mind – felt her life was never going to be happy again- she is now in the best role ever and able to provide to her 3 kids.
Life belongs to the unreasonable.
Life belongs to the ones who break their own mold and decide they need to do THEM.
It seems unreasonable to take a higher level job when you’ve never done the work.
One client recently was coached on taking her truth and power to be a new Team Lead, never before, direct reports, lots of them….unreasonable, at least some would say!
When you listen to reason and reasonable people…..you do nothing new.
The “you can’t” drowns out the desire.
The “you shouldn’t” kills the spirit.
The “you aren’t capable” is fueling fear in the heart and soul!
Of course you can,
Breast Cancer Month always brings me back to my soul!
To the call I received from the doctor after a business lunch.
To telling my family I have breast cancer, and taking care of their feelings.
To the brutal way my breasts were handled and poked and prodded all along the way.
The final days of having breasts, the teary news to my team at work and the days in the ICU, passing out from low blood counts, nurses who were amazing and the beautiful care I received from one nurse, whose own sister shared my birthday and died of breast cancer.
There are memories of my breast cancer journey each morning,
Keeping your soul alive and thriving during hard times is what life is all about.
When life is flowing and easy, there is no growth.
We are here on this planet to grow and to have our growth be for other’s growth.
It’s all about that.
Every week I speak to women on my free career clarity calls and their souls are dim.
Souls dim from a 48 year old woman who lost her job and gave it her all. Now what?
Souls dim after being hospitalized for a nervous breakdown and thinking life was going to be a fight every step of the way. Her 3 kids aged 10-16 need her,
Bad News comes in all forms…..like…..
“The masses we biopsied are cancer.”
I was driving back to my office after a business lunch.
The September day was bright and sunny. I was still eager in my brand new job and this call from the doctor shook me deep.
All I could do was nod quietly and ask what is next.
This was the worst phone call ever.
The morning of this call my 16 year old Step Daughter was in a fender bender which totally her new (less than 2 weeks old, but used) car.
Bad news was this day’s theme.
I had to shake off the stun and the sting before I called my partner.
The Real Way to Stop Self-Sabotage (it is possible)
“I just had to leave. It was my only real option to leave and never come back!”
A successful, 48 Year old woman, who spent years building her expertise as a software programmer and project manager, was beaten down and felt helpless and worthless.
She was done with her ideas not being heard and others taking credit.
She was done with wanting things to change and her projects needed changes unwanted.
She was done with feeling a deep feeling she brought from her childhood- not being enough.
It felt so bad she couldn’t drag herself into work.
“I don’t know if I’ll ever be promoted after going for it 3 times and 3 No’s”
The woman on the other end of the call, a 54 Year old with over 25 years of excellent experience in her field in large corporations. She felt permanently stuck. At her age, retirement and fulfilling her dreams is now on the MUST DO NOW list.
She talked about her bosses, boss not being supportive of her moving up.
She talked about her boss being a micromanaging bully who shames her in meetings.
She needs a plan and an avenue for her career growth.
She can’t wait for others to be in charge of her career.
Each week I get reminded of one of the biggest problems facing professional women today.
Talking with career focused women by the hundreds each month, I notice a few common, yet subtle clues that point to deep consciousness programming.
Programming that points to giving away energy.
Programming that leads to not holding one’s space in the world.
A clue to me that there needs to be a deep change.
The dreaded “I’m sorry”. UGH……
We are trained from an early age to excuse ourselves.
We are scolded and scolded.
“Say you’re sorry….”
Sorry is great when we hurt someone or offend them.
