You wait until we have a dotted line to sign before giving yourself permission to celebrate something.

Do you believe that you have an inner guide? A source of inner knowing? Many of us have had moments of visceral knowing, or a gut feeling. In many circumstances we don’t trust those voices.

Ep 29: Be More, Do Less

We are really good at doing. Doing our work. Doing things for others. It makes sense. Doing is easy, there are often instructions and steps to do something. But sometimes even the best intended doing, can become rote and mechanic. Being and becoming on the other hand, are challenging because they ask us to FEEL, and can look different on any given day. In this week’s episode Elena explores the idea of embodiment and the practice of BEING as a way to express and nurture our truest self.

Ep 27: Real Talk about Time

There isn’t enough time. We hear it, literally, all the time. And it makes sense when we spend our days doing, doing, doing. What if there is another way? What if we could replace our scarcity mindset around time to believe that how we use our time is a choice? In this week’s episode, Elena invites us to consider what it would take to make time our ally. To consider that how we spend our time can be a “I get to” instead of an “I have to.”

Ep 24: Where Can You Absorb More

Be open to receive. We hear this all the time. I’ve even used it as a (frequent) intention and affirmation. But what if there is a difference between what and how we receive and what and how we absorb? Because it is one thing to receive a feeling, and it is another thing to soak it up. In this week’s episode, Elena invites us to consider the question of how and where can you absorb more.

Ep 23: Create Space for YOU

We have a choice every single day to consider what we want to create space for in our lives. But what if creating space is less about what we want to create space for and more about the practice of allowing.
