EP 112: Feeling Lighter (Both Physically and Emotionally) with Lindsay

EP112v1

This episode is about acknowledging successes and how releasing emotional weight can help release physical weight. Today’s caller, Lindsay, is continuing on her course to personal mastery but she feels stuck when it comes to her health and wellness.

If you are wondering why is it so hard to implement personal growth efforts, it’s because neural pathways are created over time, especially when you have been doing things the same way for years. Simply being aware of something doesn’t create change. Growth is a process, not an event.

And growth is part of being human. There is always more growing to do and with the right tools the easier it becomes. We have to stop approaching growth as a fix-it, self-improvement, ‘something is wrong with me’ project. It’s important to celebrate how much growth you have experienced and how far you’ve come towards personal mastery.

If you need emotional release, do the Temper Tantrum exercise in Expectation Hangover. As you work through the emotional residue you will need less and less of the emotional release work but It takes more than one time to deal with suppressed emotions.

Practice is the key to transformation.

Would you like to feel lighter? (both physically and emotionally)

Feeling weighed down by anything is uncomfortable. If you are burdened by an expectation hangover, a problem you cannot seem to solve, an emotion you got to the other side of, or actual physical weight, I want you to know you can feel lighter.

We have all had times in our life when we felt like the weight of the world was on our shoulders. And during these times when we really need even more self-compassion, we end up being even more self critical.

We think we should be farther along. We think we should be able to get out of a funk. We think we should be able to lose the weight. 

If you can relate to this, you are not going to want to miss my recent podcast where I coach Lindsay.  She has been successful in shifting many parts of her life but is still struggling with depression and weight issues.  Lindsay longs to feel LIGHTER and truly enjoy her life. In our coaching session, we uncover what is truly weighing her down and I give her steps to lighten up.

Most of what is weighing you down is your own self-judgment. If you want to feel lighter, then it’s time to lighten up!! (tweet this) You are human. You are not God so you do not need to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders.

What is weighing you down? Please share with me so I can support you in lightening up.

Love,

Christine

p.s. I recently did two video interviews with top mindset and health expert Drew Canole.  Last week there were some issues with the link so here are the video titles and links again:

Give this gift to yourself

On Thursday I am opening the doors to my Inner Circle! This exclusive community is a way for you to receive consistent coaching, guidance and life tips from me. The number one reason I feel called to offer this program is because I see so many people take ten steps forward and then five steps back when it comes to personal growth.

I was the same way. I would do an awesome workshop or have an incredible session with my coach and feel AMAZING. And the epiphanies and changes I made would last for a while…sometimes even months.

But eventually I’d find myself backtracking, which was incredibly frustrating.

I finally stopped feeling like I was backtracking when I realized that change requires two main things: momentum and consistency.

Once I made a 100% commitment to always, yes ALWAYS, be working with a coach in some capacity AND be part of a community of like-minded people where I am held accountable…I stopped feeling like I was backtracking.
