April Showers Bring Life Changes..?

April Showers Bring Life Changes..?

The rainy weather here has been immensely reflective of how I’ve been feeling about things lately. It’s spring, so it should be warming up – and although it’s warmer now than it has been, it is still painfully dreary and almost depressing. Lately, I’ve been reflecting a lot about what I’ve done with my life ‘so far’. I’ve recently made some big changes in my life which have put me in some places I never thought I would be again… so I am facing the ghosts of my past literally every day. The fact that I’m 23 now and still feel unclear (or unsure) about what I’m doing weighs over me, not unlike this dark weather. Today, I am writing to you from a personal retreat I have put myself on. After months of feeling like my own intuition was blocked from me, I am finally feeling my own spirit coming back to life. I know part of this is the big changes I’ve made lately. But there’s more. I’m seeing the curtain has been lifted another inch or two. Spirit is whispering directly to me once again and the blinders are coming off. The trail is starting to become clear. My fundraiser is moving along at a comfortable pace – so much so that I was able to make my first payment for the online theology training I have been seeking for years. Tonight I will have a few of my first coaching sessions in a year, where I’m the one coaching. I feel very strongly that my whole life is changing beneath me, and that tonight is just the beginning. And yet, it is not the beginning, because I have been preparing my whole life for these changes. Spirit is guiding me very gently, but very specifically at this time. I have been inspired to stop associating with certain people and reinforce my personal boundaries. I have also been guided to give up caffeine, cut back on my sugar and gluten intake, and re-vamp my previously non-existent workout routine. (I’ve done something physical every day for the last week.. my body is SO not used to this!) But I am doing this. I am following the call of my soul and spirit. I am taking care of myself & doing what I need to so that I can better serve my purpose. And it’s already changing my life. Thank you for being on this journey with me....

A Mastery Lesson: Owning Your Authenticity

A Mastery Lesson: Owning Your Authenticity

It’s a beautiful Sunday here in the Midwest, despite high temperatures and high humidity. It’s beautiful because I’ve realized some really important things in the last week, and I’m finally starting to heal from the way things happened. I was introduced to another Master Teacher this last week. And the lesson I needed to learn was about trusting myself. Funny, you might be thinking, that a life coach, intuitive or otherwise sensitive and helpful woman might be struggling with this. I’ve discovered over my life that knowing who I am isn’t something I can just be done with; it’s a journey. Because every day I learn something new, which changes me, and helps me become a better person. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term ‘Master Teacher’, it isn’t a position you attain through years of school and hard work. It isn’t a paid position. It’s more of a role that someone assumes in your life when you need to learn a particular lesson. These Master Teachers are usually people who really know how to push your buttons and piss you off. They’re the people you find yourself complaining about (either mentally or aloud) to anyone who will listen. They’re people you dread bumping into, or even making eye-contact with. According to A Course In Miracles, anyone who upsets us, manages to upset us only because they are reflecting back to us what we dislike about ourselves. I call this a ‘trigger’ when it comes to working with clients, because they are extremely indicative of where we need to work on. Sometimes, these aren’t exact reflections of our own issues, but they are always something we can work on in ourselves. For example, being frustrated with another person for not taking responsibility in a situation may be an indication that we are taking too much responsibility, rather than being upset at ourselves for not taking enough responsibility. It can be a very fine line. But if these issues are coming up, that means it’s time to release them. It means you’re ready to let them go; it means the support, the information, and the tools are all available now. The only thing left is to make the choice – to take the plunge towards healing & releasing. I had to ask myself some tough questions this week. Who am I? Am I a good person? Is it possible to assert my boundaries without hurting someone else? How much of this is my responsibility? Does it make me a bad person to acknowledge that I was within my rights, and it’s that other person’s issue? Does it make me a bad person to admit I did the best...
