Savor This

The hustle and bustle of the holidays and the end of 2018 are here. Many of you might be starting to think about (or have already thought about) 2019 and what is next. But before you do, what if you could savor THIS. “This” being what is here for you … at this moment … in this year. In this week’s episode, I am diving into what it means to savor – why it is important and how to do it.

The Truth About Self-Care

Ah, self-care. We hear all about why we NEED self-care, all the time. But for many people, time feels scarce, and the idea of finding time to care for yourSELF is low on the priority list – I get it. Which is why this week, I’m sharing my thoughts on the truth about self-care. Here is a hint: it is THAT important. You might be nodding your head but still wondering, “I get it … but how?” The trick, for me, is to see self-care less as a luxury and more as a part of our daily maintenance.

Cultivate Attunement

We are human. We want things. We strive for outcomes. But what if the desire for attainment wasn’t what we really need? What if we could cultivate attunement instead of attainment? In this week’s episode, I am exploring the idea of attuning to what resonates deeply within you. Like an orchestra or chorus attunes one sound to another, we can use the practice of attunement to connect to how we want to feel and practice being in the moment.

Cultivate Curiosity as a Mindset

Children are curious. They explore just because, and they make decisions based on what feels good. But as adults, we no longer practice curiosity, opting instead to be guided by shoulds, deadlines, and a need for specific outcomes and certainty. This week I’m exploring curiosity as a mindset. Why be curious? Curiosity is one of my favorite practices for releasing a need for outcomes and creating space in our lives for new possibilities.

Give Yourself What You Crave

We want things. As humans, we want to feel loved, connected, seen, or valued by others. In this podcast, I am exploring how to give yourself more of what you crave – in your heart and in your life. Because we don’t need others to show us love, strength, connection, or even value. What if we could learn to be our own source for those feelings first? What if we could learn to find what we crave where it already exists – within ourselves and in our lives – rather than focusing on where it doesn’t?

What would happen if you could learn to notice – and to see – the self-imposed obstacles you put in your path? Let’s be real: life happens, and obstacles that are not in our control happen.

Less Fixing, More Living

When was the last time you weren’t trying to change something about yourself? Today, I am exploring the mindset shift that comes from living our life rather than constantly trying to fix our life. When we are in fixing mode – which, for many of us, is most of the time – we spend our days rooted in expectations, not-enoughness, and past or future thinking. When we spend our time living, we connect to the present moment.

Today, I begin to offer insights on how to cultivate a relationship with this inner guidance. Inner strength and wisdom don’t appear in our lives as neon signs.

What Is a Sunrise in Your Pocket?

What is a sunrise in your pocket, and why should you care? Those are the BIG questions that I am diving into today, describing why sunrise – instead of sunset – is so powerful. If there is one thing I believe for sure about life, it is that we have everything we need and crave already within us. While the help of a guide, a life coach, a teacher, or a great book can help put us on a path and help us get out of our own way, the true teacher already exists inside – if only we’d create the space to connect and listen.
