4 Ways to Not Know

“When nothing is sure, everything is possible.”  ~Margaret Drabble Something we tend to struggle with is accepting and communicating that we do not know. To the extent that we have been raised to believe that knowledge is power, we have come to believe that not knowing is weak and unproductive. As such, being honest about not knowing is difficult, and we feel pressure to act as if we know, when in fact we don’t. We fear judgment, asking for help and feeling as if we are a failure. Where in your life are you not accepting that you do not know? If you were to make it OK to not know, what would you do differently? Four ways to express not knowing “I don’t know.” […]

Playing Through Fear

“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” ~ Farrah Gray. The other day I did something that was a real stretch for me. It pushed all my buttons and had my monkey mind going pretty crazy leading up to it. I paid good money to get a two hour event in front of 200 people filmed by professional videographers. Oh how my mind fretted… What if the room layout isn’t right? What if the audience doesn’t want to participate? What if the lighting is bad? What if the film doesn’t turn out good? Maybe I should just cancel. Maybe I should just call it off. It’s probably not the right time and place. The fork in the road was laid out in […]

Stepping Forward

“Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they’re yours.” ~ Richard Bach. It’s normal and quite easy to delay stepping into our goals and dreams. After all, it’s quite comfy over here. It’s familiar territory and I don’t have to think much. And I absolutely will take on this new goal/dream of mine once I have… more education more money more information more time cleared the slate Is it the truth? Do you really need to wait any longer? “When you stand in your truth, the universe moves to support you.” ~ Lynda Austin A friend of mine followed her dream and became a life coach despite having no money. She paid the registration fee entirely on credit. Not long after registering, she received a letter […]

Why Wait? Now’s the Time! ~ 7 Blocks & Tips to Ending Procrastination & Making Empowering Life Choices

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.” ~Karen Lamb It is natural to procrastinate even though we know in our heart that there is no reason to wait. We grant more power to our limiting stories than to the part of us that simply says It’s time. I am guessing every person reading this has a decision they have been hemming and hawing on. Perhaps it is leaving a job or relationship, expressing your feelings or concerns, starting a creative project, moving to a new location, or starting a new career path. The decision may be small or perhaps it is large. And maybe it is a small decision but it feels large. Small or large we face these decisions regularly, […]

15 Ways to Express Needs & Desires

“There is a difference between being self-centred and centred in the Self.”  ~ Lynda Austin We have been trained not to ask for what we want. We will bend ourselves backwards, deny our feelings, and burn ourselves out all to avoid stating our needs. Our social conditioning, and specifically our inner Saboteur, holds us back by stating that putting ourselves first is selfish or wrong, or that we should always give to others first. And yet, we cannot give away what we don’t have. In other words, we must learn to give to ourselves first, fill our own cup so to speak, before we can feed others. “Everything we want is on the other side of fear.” ~ Farrah Gray Our social conditioning is based in fear.

Discovering Life Through Uncertainty

Yesterday I used to sing a song That carried me through the night The other day I seemed to have it all But now, I cannot seem to fight And when I try to hold on to it I seem to hardly let go It’s time to face my fears It’s time to show my soul In time I’ll lose myself In time I’ll cry my dreams away In time I’ll be myself again And fall away “When we are not sure, we are alive.” ~ Graham Greene In moments when we’ve lost our sense of certainty we can feel powerless, lost and confused. We lose faith in ourselves to direct our life. While these moments challenge us to the core, they are the fertile […]
