My Favorite Healing Question and its Transformative Power - Episode 36

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.

Intuitive Goal Setting and the Chalkboard Method - Episode 35

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.

Balancing Intentional Growth and Divine Guidance

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.

When Your Intuition is Like, “Yeah, You’re Not Gonna Like This” - Episode 31

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.

Feeling Guilty Because You’re Not Meditating? - Episode 30

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.

Being an Everyday Lightworker (An Energy Renegade) - Episode 27

Being an “Everyday Lightworker” is a little bit like being an energy renegade. These days there’s a new wave of Lightworkers in town, those taking their work – and their energetic awareness – to the streets… into the everyday world.

Mission-driven, spiritually-aware, do-gooders are taking their awakened selves out into the world in grounded and practical ways to create change… for themselves and their communities. 

Everyday Lightworking isn’t necessarily about focusing on our 5D experience and working the energetic grids, but grounding our multidimensional experience and staying aware of that, while also tending to our daily life. In fact, it’s how we move our daily life forward.

In this episode, I’m talking about what “everyday lightworking” means, and offering up a few questions to get you thinking about your life, your energy, and how you move your spiritual mojo out into the world.

How Do You Know What is Truly Aligned with You? - Episode 25

How do you know when something is aligned with you?

If you feel inspired to do something, and it fails or falls flat, does this mean it wasn’t aligned with your soul… or is something else getting in the way?

Getting things to manifest can be tricky business. We can feel in our bones that something is right, and still not see it come to be. And although alignment is very important, it may not be all that’s in play when it comes to you creating what you seek.

So in this week's episode, I'm talking about how you can sense into alignment, and what gets in your way.

What’s Your Soapbox Story? - Episode 24

What do you care about? What drives you in your life? What do you believe, that helps you make sense of the world?

I think that everyone has a metaphorical soapbox that they stand upon, where they tell the story of why they're here, what they believe is the focus of their life.

Not everyone knows their “soapbox story” though, which can lead to feeling lost in life… feeling off-purpose. And some us struggle with owning our story, and saying that what we care about, really matters.

But our spirit work is to bring our soapbox story to life in some way – to create an impact on the world in some way because something about this life really matters to us.

This is about knowing who you are and what fuels your purpose.

Just think what would happen if you stepped into that and you let that fuel all of the choices that you make.

Workplace Mindfulness: Bringing More of Your Spirit into Your Work Day - Episode 23

Work and spirituality often seem at odds. Most of the people I coach struggle with how to bring more of their spirit into their work… or find work that lets their spirits soar.

But bringing a little mindful “work woo” into your 9-5 can help you get through the day feeling more aligned with your heart and living your truth. It can help you connect with a sense of purpose at work. And by tending to what your spirit needs when at work, work can become a place where you express your highest vibe.

And no, you don’t need to cart in the candles and patchouli into your office to work from a more spirit-driven place. I’ve got some other, more grounded ideas for you.

The Balance Between Hustle and Flow - Episode 20

In the spiritual world, these days it’s all about flow; listening within to find your way, making aligned choices, and following the path of ease.

Hustle is an opposing force; yet we hear about it too. In many ways, hustle gets a bad rap… it’s become all about force and busyness.

This clash is creating a rising conflict in my mind, because to break through your own barriers and do something new in your life – create something that is new to you or new to the world – you’re going to need to light a fire within and hustle a little.

There is a way to do hustle, and at the same time, be in flow.

In this episode, I’m talking about how to master both.

How Your Energy is Like a Rolled Up Carpet – Episode 19

There’s a sweet spot where you are most energetically potent… where you have an impact over manifesting the synchronicities you might need to create something or to work with the universe to feed you the information (aka energy) that you need to understand and transform something.

In this episode, I talk about how to find that place of awareness - that sweet spot - because most people are either out ahead of it or lagging behind.

I also offer up a few ways to work with your energy and awareness to take daily aligned action and roll your energy out, bit by bit.
