Back Away From the Distractions!

I've been guilty lately of letting distractions take hold of my every day life.  What I mean by this is, spending my time on things that do not take me towards my greatest good.  I have had several days last week filled with phone calls with friends and family members, lunch with others, going for an oil change in the middle of the day, etc.  This then escalated into me making judgements about others, thinking they weren't doing things the right way and so on and so on. Now don't get me wrong.  Having a long phone call with a friend is a wonderful thing to do.  It's when I do it several mornings out of the week with several different friends that it starts to really take away from my work. My soul's mission here on earth is to help folks and to get my word out there.  I can help folks while having coffee but at some point, I should think about giving them the tools to help themselves.

Once I realized where I was throwing distraction into my life, I decided to sit back and see where others were doing it and if I was guilty of doing the same thing.  Bingo!  I have a dear friend who is veering off track with her life goals.  She is spending a lot of time worrying about what others in her life are doing.  Yes, she is not staying in her own lane.  Where am I doing that, I thought?  I was definitely doing that.  It was as if I woke up this morning and the light went on.  It's time to ask myself the simple question as these distractions come up, "Is this in my higher good?". Is the sitting around worrying what others are doing for my highest good?  NO.....  Is letting others dump their stuff on me for my highest good?  NO....

I won't fully stay away from phone calls  with my friends.  They are dear to me.  I love that they are in my life.  I will take my calendar and make sure that I get my work done and the things that are moving me toward my greatest good done.  Once I do this, then I'm happy to sit down and see how the rest of the world is doing.  If I don't get my social time, I start to really miss people and places.

Where can you "clean" up your time?  Are you spending a lot of time thinking about how others can do it better?  Is there some way for you to turn that around and see where it's mirroring something in your life?  Are you giving away a lot of your time that could be used to work on your goals?  It might be time to start looking inward and see where you can make some changes!!

Be Your Own Hero!!

At a lovely dinner last night here in Park City, I had a conversation with a good friend of mine.  We were talking about finding your purpose in life and how it feels when you just don't know what that is.  We talked around the subject and then came to the realization that you know your purpose, it's inside of you just waiting to get out.  There are quite a few folks in the world who are already living their purpose, but I would have to guess that there are more who are not.  They are stuck in jobs they don't like, relationships that aren't working and are not saying yes to their souls. Fast forward an appetizer or two, and we came up with the lovely conclusion that you do have your purpose inside of you.  It's the unlocking of steps to get you to that a-ha moment, that lovely, yummy version of yourself.  The one where you no longer feel that emptiness inside and that voice inside your head that says, "I know there is more!"

So, the inevitable question becomes how do we get there?  How do we unlock those steps?  For me it was years of workshops, coaching, therapy, etc.  It's just what I had to do.  It can get frustrating but it's that one coach who will give you the tools to get the job done yourself who will be the most valuable.  We all go to the workshops and hope that "they" give us the answers.  How many of you can relate to this?  When you make that switch to "I can do this!", the answers will flow more easily.

As I continued to talk to my dear friend, we realized that you can work on finding your passion at night while still in your day job.  Just start!  Just start with small steps and it will keep the momentum building and the energy going forward.  It's when you stop and try and re-start a few months later that you have problems getting the energy up to full speed.  Try it, just do three things a day.  Sit down and write three things a day that you want to accomplish.  The feeling of completing those three things will have you feeling so good, you will continue with the rest of that long to-do list.  Baby steps, my dear, baby steps.

It took me 50 years to finally see what my purpose here on earth was.  Some folks are blessed to find it way early and some way later than me.  It's that acceptance of knowing that it is inside of you and that you eventually will have the tools to tease it out that will make your life so much richer!

Sometimes It All Just Clicks!

Today was one of those days.  What I mean by this is that it all just clicked and I became very clear on what I was put on earth to do.  I am here to help people see their true selves.  I am here to walk them to their greatest self by using several modalities (more on that later). I have been working on myself quite a bit the last couple of years.  It's been a rough road, but would I have expected anything else on a healing journey?  You may ask what prompted me to begin such a journey.  It was a culmination of a few things.  To sum it up in one sentence, I was getting uncomfortable in my dysfunction and was ready to have some different outcomes.  I am here to tell you that it truly can be done.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not done processing.  It's a life-long journey but one that I can now more easily traverse.

When one starts feeling that being caught on the gerbil wheel is no longer acceptable, that's usually when we start to desire a different outcome.  What is that saying, "If you want something to change, you have to change something?".  How simple but true.  You simply have to change your reaction to something, someone, or some situation.

How do some folks have the capacity to start their healing journey while others don't?  I truly believe that it has to do with mental attitude, capabilities and quite simply wanting to get out of their old stories.  What story do you keep telling yourself that is holding you back?  What would your life look like without this story??

Ask yourself two simple questions:  1) How would my life look in a year if I don't change anything?  or 2) How could my life look different if I truly did change some things? Which answer do you like better?  Which one resonates in your body and soul?  These questions have been very pivotal for me to come to my next chapter.  Where do I want to be in a year?  What do I want to be doing?

My goal for this life is to help people find their true selves.  What does this look like? This will be a combination of modalities such as coaching, energy work, intuitive healing, channeling, etc.  I'm offering a free 30-minute consultation if you are interested in hearing more.  Please click on the page above titled "Coaching".

Listen, we have but one life to live.  I'm sure you have heard that dozens of times, but what will it take for you to believe it, live it and be proud of the legacy that you will leave behind?  I would love to walk this journey with you.  I would love to show you how my world opened up as I entered a new decade instead of shutting down because I thought it was "too late"!
