It's natural to want a step-by-step process when learning to work with your intuition and inner wisdom. And although there are skills to learn, this inner work is truly self-directed. It's an exploration. Letting go of any rules or steps, and trusting your instincts, is the key to finding your way into new information and growth. It's also a metaphor for living fully. This week's chat felt like a journey for me. With each thought, I was putting together ideas that turned into a pretty big "aha" moment for me. Perhaps you too.Read More
Nature is constantly speaking to you, offering messages of inspiration and healing. Nature also has a lot to say about the questions you have about your work and your life... when you feel stuck and need direction.
This week, my guest Angie Mattson Stegall and I talk about listening to Nature: the how, the why and the trusting of the process.Read More
Do you believe yourself to be intuitive? What does that mean to you? For a lot of folks, intuition is a flash, a gut feeling in a sense that seems to come out of nowhere. Some people think that only "psychic" people have access to this level of information.
Me? I think those flashes of intuition don't sum of the whole story of what intuition is about. Far from it. There's actually an "everyday" way that we access our intuition that shifts us into more personal power. And every single person has access to this level of intuitive power.
So let's talk about how you think of intuition. I'll share how I see it, and how I work with it. And how you can too.Read More
Trusting your inner wisdom, your intuition, isn't always easy. But sometimes the reason why is because you're focusing on the wrong thing. Especially if you're working with your inner wisdom somewhat sporadically - when you need an answer to a question - what you get back will feel untrustworthy. There's no foundation there for context and understanding.
So let's talk about how to create more trust in your inner wisdom, your intuition, and yourself.Read More
Over the years, I’ve come to ask myself one question that takes me furthest into my growth and healing than just about anything else. One question that gets me out of my head and into the heart of what matters.
It’s the one question I ask the women I work with too, that then takes their transformational work to a whole new level.
It’s a fairly simple question on the outside: “Who are you being asked to grow into?” But the true answer to this question is often a few layers deep.
Allowing the answer to come takes practice. You’re going to want to answer it with your mind and you’ll want to always think you’re totally on board with the idea of this growth… but that’s not how this goes.
So today, let’s talk about this question, “Who are you being asked to grow into?” Let’s talk about the process of answering it and how it can change you when you learn to listen in a way that let’s you meet that energy before you make any decisions about what you should be doing as that person.Read More
A lot of people this time of year start thinking about what’s ahead and create vision boards to guide their way. But for me, vision boards don’t really go anywhere. They’re just not my thing (which I elaborate on in the podcast!).
I like concrete experiences and processes that tap me into how I feel in the moment and empower me in co-creative action. I like feeling like at the end of the day or week or quarter that I can see progress through what I do to give space for those goals to manifest.
So, this past year I wanted to find a way to stay connected to the ideas I had about my life, instead of journaling on them and never seeing those words again; instead of creating a collage of ideas and not ever being fully engaged with the next steps of creating them. I wanted something that felt interactive, where I’d create something that would reflect my internally guided ideas of what’s next, continually look at it (and not be able to hide it away) and also have it be a functional tool to track how things are going - like being able to check things off and see a sense of accomplishment.
What I found was the Chalkboard Method. And, being me, I let the process blend my intuitive planning and aligned action steps.
In this episode I talk about this super cool tool that can help you hold your vision and track the action you need to take to get you there.Read More
I think there’s a balance that we need to find between intentional growth and letting the universe guide the way. Finding this balance often comes up when we think about things like setting intentions, having healing goals, being the driver of your life, and meeting the universe halfway.
To me, all those things are important - and necessary when you are on a spiritual path - a path of your own spiritual evolution.
I’ll sometimes hear people say that they don’t have any particular intentions about themselves and their growth. They’re in this wait and see space; going with what is and letting the universe guide them toward what is next.
And although I get that, there’s also something deep within me that keeps wondering… at what point is it necessary to take the wheel and drive.
In this episode, I'm sharing how I balance action and allowance and dish up a whole bunch of questions to help you explore this for yourself.Read More
There’s a coolness factor when it comes to tapping into a level of inner wisdom and guidance that comes from beyond you. It's fascinating to be able to access a level of information that is outside your rational mind. It's really cool to be able to work with guides and receive information that seemingly comes out of nowhere... but lands as a truth.
But the truth is when you tap into intuitive and psychic information and you start dabbling with energy work, what you're doing is you’re accessing a level of information that's going to transform you. And taking the leap into that transformation requires bravery, trust, and a willingness to change that I think often gets lost when people get interested in all things intuitive.
At least at first.
In this episode, I’m talking about bravery and intuitive work; shifting out of the fun part where you're receiving all kinds of neat messages and having fascinating experiences with the unknown, to then getting down to the nitty-gritty work of transformation.Read More
If you want to work with your intuition – to work with energy, your inner wisdom, and guidance from beyond your rational mind – you’ve got to develop some “out of the box” thinking to see something new. You’ve got to give yourself a way to recognize something that is beyond your current mindset; something maybe even unrecognizable at the moment
How do you go about understanding something that is new or not yet clear to you? You start with your imagination and creativity to seek out answers and help you make sense of what you sense so you can see it and understand it… even acclimate to it.
But the problem is, most people don’t trust their answers then. They think the information they’re receiving is completely made up and irrelevant because it’s coming through their imagination.
So today, let’s talk about how to build that trust and why it’s so important to get creative when it comes to you doing intuitive work.Read More
It kind of sucks when your intuitive wisdom tells you something that you don’t really want to hear. When you ask yourself, your guides, or the universe a direct question like, “Is this what I’m to do?” and you get an answer that disappoints you in some way… or challenges you.
If you’re really listening in a way that gets you to your truth, sometimes you’ll recognize that you are being guided in a direction that’s hard, or not what you hoped you’d hear.
That’s when you know this stuff is real. That’s when you know you have a choice to make as to whether you listen to your head or your intuition.
So today, let’s talk about your intuition and how sometimes it’s gonna tell you things you just don’t want to hear... and how to deal with that.Read More
If you're confused about what your spiritual practice needs to be, then there are some key things you want to look at; to get clear on.
Sometimes there’s a real message in that confusion, like get off your butt and do your inner work. But all too often this confusion is about comparison and self-judgment; not knowing how to discern what you need as a spiritual practice, and trusting your instincts on how to integrate that into your daily life.
In this episode, I talk about how you can ease into a spiritual practice that works for you and kick that confusion to the curb. Because honestly, confusion around your spiritual process - how you tap into your wisdom for healing - is going to hold you back.
I offer up a few key ideas to be aware of when you start wondering if your meditation practice is the right one; if what you’re doing is what you should be doing.Read More
When it comes to being an empath or one whose energy-aware, it’s important to know that just because you’re sensitive to energy and can feel something, it doesn’t mean you’re doomed to be stuck sitting in the collective vibe.
When you feel the collective vibe - even the overwhelm - there's information for you there. You're not to process everyone's emotions...just your own.
If you’re feeling the overwhelm in some way, there is always something happening within you that you can work with. And in this episode, I give you 3 steps to doing just that.Read More
