So much good stuff for your ears!!

This time of year seems to be busy for so many of us. It also can be triggering for many of us and I have some videos coming out for you in the next month around dealing with loneliness, stress and family dynamics during the holiday season. Stay tuned for that.

Today I want to update you on what’s been happening on the Over It and On With It podcast where I coach people live on the air.  We have had some amazing episodes lately.

In episode 114, I coach Arelle on turning off an ‘on again and off again’ relationship.  This call is about understanding the basis of relationships that feel like an addiction. When we have a relationship that feels like an addiction or a drug it generally comes from a childhood wound. It is important, developmentally and psychologically, to have a healthy relationship with our parents. If we don’t have a healthy relationship with our parents, and as adults we don’t resolve our issues through inner work, therapy, coaching or spiritual practices, we go looking for what we didn’t get from our parents from the people we date. Often, it is our younger self who picks our relationships . . . and that does not turn out so well!

Episode 115 is about expiration dates in friendship. We are not always good friends to ourselves and it can be reflected back to us in our friendships — like it is in my call with Claire. One of Claire’s friendships has just reached an expiration date and she is learning valuable lessons from it. Other people can be mirrors for us and often, it takes someone else to wake us up. If a friend treats us badly enough it causes us to look inside ourselves to understand what it is showing us. It can show us the kind of friend we are being to ourselves.

And don’t miss episode 116, where I coach Shanna on breaking out of a self-imposed prison cell and taking a conscious action which will lead to change. Shanna needs to squelch her limiting beliefs and embrace her strengths and her power. She has been punishing herself. Shame does that to us. When we feel ashamed about something we overcompensate and that becomes our punishment. Anytime we are in overcompensation mode and do not allow ourselves to live the life we really want, we keep ourselves in a self-imposed prison.

What I love most about this podcast is that in listening to these live sessions, you will realize that you are not alone. We ALL go through challenging things and have obstacles to overcome. It is my honor and great JOY to hold a space for this kind of deep work.

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,

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.
