Ep 28: Choose Ease over Force
Find ease. Maybe you’ve heard this before? Maybe you’ve wondered what it really means or looks like? Most of us are used to living in force mode: willing things to happen, or doing every single thing you can to achieve a specific outcome, no matter what. In this week’s episode, I am sharing a story that illustrates the difference between when you choose ease over force. You’ll want to listen to this episode if you have been struggling with a project or task and not making any progress.

Where are you doing something out of scarcity or not enoughness?
What would it look like for you to be certain that whatever it is you are trying to create, will emerge as it is supposed to?
