In Praise of Women

by Danielle La Porte

I often hear “women are our own worst enemies” in terms of our culture. I’m tired of that argument. I think everyone is their own worst enemy, and I don’t think it’s about something women have specifically against each other.

The uh, broadness, of my experience with the women throughout my life leaves me humble, optimistic, proud, and grateful. I’ve been screwed over by females in business and love, and I’ve planted a few landmines myself. But those enemy-making times were the results of bumbling, struggling humanness, not ovaries or hormones. We could argue the bio-instincts to procreate, protect and feed that spurs some nasty behavior from chicks, or about Queen Bees and Wanna-Bees — all very real social dynamics, but I’m here to give witness to the force of pure Goddess positivity that is the hallmark of my life. Word.

I love when having a dose of strong medicine opens up new dialogue and enquiry.

As women Danielle La Portes post I just saw made me smile as she spoke of how we as women push
Push out babies, push out creations, push out truths and push out support into the world

It’s innately within our womb an space to push so stop denying being too pushy and share your voice unapologetically.

And I am reminded again and again how walking the spiral path of ones true calling requires a constant state of death, birth and renewal over and over again.

That as women when we can hold a space to be in the presence of women on a mission we can love the parts illuminated and the parts in the dark as equally memorable and see the power in the cycles of death and rebirth together and let’s push a kinder more connected, beneficent presence out into the ether and the earth

‪#‎goddess‬ power

Remember we are all in this together. Whether we like it or not our friends are going through the experience of life on Earth just the same way that we are, just as our family has, just as our enemies do.

This thing of being human is Mary Magdeleine, Kali, dragon breath, creator and destroyer and when we can see the potential of all things as equal, true change begins that puts into motion a collective bigger than us all.

We are all in this together, the agony and ecstasy of BEING human.

What would happen if we acted and actioned all of it ??

Creator and destroyer ??

I wonder, what is one action you could take today to support our inter connectedness

The fragility and potency of this thing called human Beingness?

Tell me about it and let’s do this thing together

MY LIVED EXPERIENCE IS THAT WOMEN SIMPLY ADORE WOMEN:

Women shake their cosmic pom poms. Go sister go! How many times has a girlfriend told you, that you got it going on, before you head out the door or the dressing room? That even though your new haircut makes you look like a mushroom, your ass looks grrreat. They’ll be looking at your ass all night, not your hair. Really, you’re hot. Just keep your hat on and don’t sit downGo get ‘em.

A woman makes a cup of her heart. She carries your concerns and fears with you, for you. When your eyes fill up with teary news, so do hers. It happens with women you’ve known for years, with women you just met at the grocery store, in the ladies room, in a prayer circle. She carries your story with her. She mixes honey with it and re-tells it to you and helps you notice how great you’re doing, in spite of everything, because of everything.

Women bare their fangs for you. Like when Tammy threatened to butt her cigarette out between buddy’s eyebrows if he didn’t leave us alone. He walked, we rocked.

Women feed each other – literally and figuratively.  Think of all the meetings or retreats you’ve been to. Who brings the cocoa and sparkling water? Who remembers that you’re lactose intolerant? Who asks you if you have everything you need?

A woman will sacrifice without calling it a sacrifice. Leila was three months pregnant. I was moving cross-country (again.) Road trip anyone? We U-hauled our way from Seattle to Santa Fe with Leila coughing her cookies at every truck stop. I made it to my desert home and she flew back to the coast. And named her little girl Phoebe Danielle.

Women hold on. It’s like Audrey Hepburn said, “Never throw anyone out.” It’s like my soul sister Donna says, “We’re all bozos on the same bus so just go with it.” Meep meep.

Women bypass history. A good sister listens to you bitch about the same jerk for years, she helps you pack when you’re smart enough to leave, and she stands by you when you repeat the same lesson with the next emotionally lame lover. She loves you enough to let you do it your way – again, and again, like it was the first time. No drama is too big for big women. 

A woman howls to help you remember what matters the most. She loves you enough to intervene. She will drag you out of your comfort zone and into the moonlight to say “What the fuck are you doing? You may have temporarily forgotten who you are, but I haven’t and I’m here to remind you.” Like when Karen told me over green tea, “D, maybe it’s all about the divine feminine for you, maybe that’s the question to live. It’s time to move on from playing small.” Arooooo!

Women touch you. Michelle and I went to visit a friend in the hospital recovering from surgery. Miche brought lavender lotion and massaged Friend’s feet while she lay achy and groggy. I’ll never forget that stunning moment of loving service.

Women push. Push babies out, push babies into the world. Baby ideas. Baby thought forms. Baby parts of you. “But Danielle, it’s just a thought-form that you ‘can’t take more,’” Navjit told me. “Don’t constrict. Expand.” Boundaries, pushed.

Women know how to navigate the layers because they love the layers. Folds of skin, the sediments of time, the stories that build into the present. Like how Candis not only remembers what I love but knows why I love it. She is reverent, keen, actively interested in the why of me – and that is what it means to be witnessed by a woman. Word.
All Love,

P.S. Check out my For women, women, women reading list for most posts like this one. Feminine power. Let’s talk about it. We’re all goddesses.

The low down on the coaching industry

The low down on the coaching industry – the good, the bad and the ugly of the coaching industry

 

There is so much good about personal mentorship and facilitation through coaching I could write a book about it. I know it would have taken me so much longer to get where I wanted to be on my own. There are so many wonderful aspects in the field of personal growth and healing…but also some of the current failings in the industry. One that has already transformed so many people’s lives including my own over the past 20 plus years and one that will continue to have a massive impact because honestly you can’t see what you need when you are under a dark cloud of doubt and fear. It’s also a young industry – in its teenage years, if you will. And teenagers make mistakes. Teenagers go through growing pains. Teenagers need to see the bigger picture.

 

And I want you to see the bigger picture, too!

So that you can continue to live from the heart, trust in your innate wisdom and gifts and to grow into yourself.

Let me know what you think!

 

 

I have had some heated discussions with my peers on how we can contribute to change the pieces we don’t like about our industry and the movement back to heart based business is growing.

That was the driving force behind my global summit “Courageous, Confident, Inspired Women” where I interviewed over 27 change agents around the world doing business their way from kindness and generosity and heart.

 

More and more women who come to me start by saying they don’t really trust the coaching industry. They share that the marketing they see feels really glitzy and sales-y, as if celebrity coaches are inflating what’s possible as well as what’s really happening in their own business.

 

They tell me they’re scared of needing to have “Hell Yeah” attitudes in order to succeed, or being inauthentic in order to attract clients. They also admit that they feel pressure to spend what feels like a Godzillion ( a number so big only God knows) dollars in order to receive “formulas” that they sense aren’t really a fit for them.

 

Hearing all this pisses me off enough to do business differently.

Because I know that there are some not-so-pretty things happening in this industry that I really get triggered by. And I also know that those not-so-pretty things are damaging women, causing more trauma and holding the core wounding of “I am not good enough” in place more than supporting them to shine.

 

The coaching “noise” is everywhere — over social media, in your inbox, spoken from colleagues. It’s hard to know what’s the Truth and what’s your truth especialling when you are in the big BUT or comparison trap that feed a multi billion dollar industry.

 

If you’ve been part of my community, you know that over the last few years, I’ve spoken out more and more about what I call “glamour coaching”, false prophets, guru status in so called “consciousness circles” that keep you “hooked in like a cult” and feeling less than and why it is dangerous.

 

Anyone who wants you to pay them to learn meditation for examples pisses me off  Because you shouldn’t have to spend hundreds of thousands to learn to meditate or be deeply happy – you cannot meditate or tap or worse still “poc and pod” yourself into abundance or receive stellar support in your business.

 

And you shouldn’t have to feel like your sacred & unique business needs to fit into a one size fits all “formula” in order to be successful. So much of all the hype goes so against your true nature to trust what you know and be undefinable or unlimited. Been there done that one until I gave myself the middle finger and turned inwards to uncreate myself again!

 

And you shouldn’t get down on yourself because you haven’t earned 6 figures overnight.

 

Here are some insights that I hope will support you in navigating the coaching industry in an empowered, heart core way — with wisdom, confidence, intuition, and a strong sense of your ethics, integrity and authenticity.

 

I’ve created them because I believe so strongly & deeply in coaching as a tool and in the power of the coaching industry, and I want you to be able to love this field as much as I do:

 

 

Don’t believe everything you read

 

Unfortunately, not everything you read on social media is the “Truth”. There may be some facts that got “left out” from the marketing.

 

Use your gut knowing rather than judgment when you read things about people who create 6 figures in 3 months or people who work only 4 hours a week but earn 7 figures. Or people who have added 10,000 to their list in 10 days. All of those facts may (or may not) be true, but I guarantee there is more to the story than is being revealed.

Ask yourself – “Is this true?” and feel into that.

Ask your business – “who do I need to BE in order to create success on my terms?’

 

Remember that one wo/mans success may not be your definition of success.

 

For example – knowing I can be present for my daughter and work when I want is success for me. For you it may be travelling the world, free of fixed property and possessions.

 

What is your definition of success?

If money was not a necessity, what would you be doing? Where would you be living and how?

 

I have seen too many people lose their way when they make it all about the money. When you make money the driving force of your business, you kill your joy and your business.

 

Rather ask “how can I serve more? How can I lead from generosity? How can I have more money in order to support the thing I most care about? That way when you feel like throwing in the towel on your vision, the big WHY to get running water to rural communities or a safe house for women in abusive relationships or money to the Pachamama tribe to keep big oil companies from destroying the rain forests will motivate you to keep doing what you are doing!

womensupportingwomen

Make your vision BIGGER than your to do list!

Get really honest with yourself by acknowledging your selfish why to work a 4 hour week or travel the world or take 2 months off to play a year and go from there.

 

I am often told by clients that I am a truth teller, real, raw and authentic. I believe this is one of the reasons why my clients are so happy and successful —

  • They know beyond a doubt who they are through the Pathway to Purpose mapping and Mindful change process
  • They don’t have an unrealistic expectation to be something they are not and therefore they are pressure-free and judgement-free to follow their calling, which opens up so much more space and energy for persistent & aligned action that leads to results.

Understand that the best kind of business is one that is grown sustainably based on whom YOU are and who you are becoming – that’s living legacy!

 

Speed and “Now! Now! Now!” are big themes in many coaching circles which through my own personal experience can be a big factor in how easily it is to lose sight of why we choose to do what we do in the first place. While I do love and appreciate when things can more forward at the speed of lightening (& sometimes they absolutely do), I can tell you without a doubt that a successful business is a sustainable one birthed and grown into from the heart.

 

I’ve seen way too many healers, coaches and entrepreneurs crash and burn because they haven’t created strong foundations in their business by getting really clear on their BIG why and what they stand for.

If you have not yet gone through my 4 part Diamond wealth video series and workbook, you can start there – just go to www.sarahjanediamond.com, opt in and go through the 4 C’s of heart based business.

know where u r going

I believe living into your JOY of business as your LIFE all starts with healing your own core woundings, your adverse childhood experiences and your beliefs around money.

 

Foundation and persistence is a HUGE part of an entrepreneur’s work, and I believe that anyone that tells you that you don’t have to work to create what you want is wrong. Now, that doesn’t mean you have to work hard, or that you have to suffer. Quite the opposite — the point is to enjoy the work knowing your core essence and your GOLD – I lead my clients back to themselves through my Pathways to Purpose 10 week foundational process, which you can learn more about in my STORE. But it does take effort and energy to create something real.

Earning $100K but spending $80K doesn’t equal business abundance

 

There has been a trend in the coaching industry towards spending a ton of money on more and more team members, more and more un-necessary programs, more and more applications & technology, more and more bells and whistles.

 

My husband likes to call me frugal, and he’s right: I just don’t like to waste money – it’s my ancestral Irish/ Jewish inheritance!

 

I grew my multiple 6-figure business without breaking the bank, and I teach my clients to do the same. Here is a tip to get you started: You shouldn’t be spending more than 40% – 45% of your gross income (unless you are earning less than $20K and you are investing in business support). I am proud to share that I average about a 60% margin.

Price Yourself and Invest in Yourself at rates that feel in alignment with you

 

Nothing makes me angrier than experts telling new practitioners and entrepreneurs, straight out of the gate, to charge exorbitant rates.

 

This is usually a surefire way to create disappointment, despair and frustration.

 

I’m all about charging rates that feel GOOD to you and that help you really step into your value, but jacking up prices that feel out of touch doesn’t actually do that.

 

If you want to learn more about how to price your offerings with integrity, alignment AND your value intact, book a CLARITY session now http://www.vcita.com/v/sarahjanediamond/online_scheduling?service_id=b5c4bc1f907b8cf0&staff_id=81e1a3920426f6ce.

Don’t Lose Yourself

I have hired a number of coaches over the years, and have received a ton of value from them. I would not have been able to create the business I’ve created without their love and support.

At the same time, there have been many instances where coaches made suggestions that just truly didn’t resonate with me. The suggestions were perhaps the “norm” or the “formula” in the industry, but I knew in my heart that it wouldn’t serve me or my business.

 

YOU know and understand yourself and your business better than anyone else. Trust yourself before you trust any formulas.

Know that there are MANY, many amazing coaches out there

This is the most important guideline in this article. Despite some of the not-so-great things happening in the coaching industry right now, overall it is a wonderful and magical industry that has broken stereotypes and boundaries, given hope and inspiration to millions, and truly transformed the world. I believe deep down to my toes that the world is a better place thanks to the coaching industry. And I believe it will do much, much, much more good in the decades to come.

 

If you know you need support in your business and life, don’t approach coaching from a jaded perspective. Know there are so many brilliant coaches out there who can change your life. The trick is to approach it all with some of the tips and pieces of wisdom I’ve given you in this article, and above all else — trust your intuition and love yourself.

How to stop worrying and start living happy

How to stop worrying and start living happy is a choice!

Last week I spoke about how you can stop capping your happiness and CHOOSE to have happiness as a CHOICE.

https://youtu.be/46ZZjJdfEJ0

I know what it feels like to not live in to my YES and It breaks my heart to see incredible, powerful women let fear stop them from achieving the health, happiness and success
they know is possible by capping their happiness and making themselves wrong.

It’s a touchy subject that has had me squirming more than once when I have reached out looking for the “right” person to support me
in getting out of my own way when I am stuck in the yes but, and other mean self talk.

Maybe I’ll piss you off so much you will hit unsubscribe and never want to speak to me again, that is okay, I won’t stop loving you where you are.
I am not going anywhere. I am willing to give up having you in my tribe ( for now) if it will help you get into action in your Diamond zone of genius and high shine.

I speak to women every day that have so much to offer in their unique zone of genius and then something happens – they stop trusting and start thinking about all the reasons and justifications WHY they can not instead of asking How can I……..???

Just last week I spoke with a woman who had had enough of the old self sabotage, the pain, the stress and overwhelm showing up in different versions of the old stories. She was ready to take a leap into the unknown, unravel, get to the root and change it! She wanted private mentoring with me. We spoke about what it was coming her to not get to root of her pain. She was so ready, so excited to rewrite her story and reset her nervous system. As she tapped into her pain she received that the very things she had experienced as sickness and childhood trauma was her purpose and potential> She acknowledged it was time to share her story, that her heart was telling her to say yes and make the leap into my FACET private mentorship program, and she said YES to that knowing, that she was done playing small and scared……

The next day she backed out, stating that she said yes, “in a moment of weakness.”
“I just did  not think it through, I don’t know what came over me.” she said
and she stepped away from her YES and back into a place where she knew how to cap her happiness
and settle for less.

When is listening to your higher self EVER a moment of weakness?
Do you want to know what weakness actually is? It’s when you won’t listen to your heart and only listen to your head, which will tell you any kind of lie it needs to in order to keep you right where you are. It cautions you to be careful, weigh your options, list the pros and cons, and don’t do anything that will cause you stress.

Well, guess what?
Accessing your true nature DOES causes stress. It stretches you and makes you feel uncomfortable, because you’re doing something you’ve never done before!  Your comfort zone is called the comfort zone for a reason: because you’re comfortable there!

Your Diamond zone of genius, not excellence, GENIUS does not lie in your comfort zone. 
If you want to go where the magic happens, you must leap where it tells you to leap before you know how it’s all going to work out. You don’t get trust first and THEN do the scary thing; you gain trust AS YOU DO THE SCARY THING.

“To get what you’ve never had,
you must do things that you’ve never done.”

“Thinking things through” will close the door on more opportunities and miracles than you can even imagine.

Being your OWN magic and medicine, requires that you follow the body nudges ( it feels intense, painful even – to get your full attention) where your heart whispers and encourages you and  let your head work out the logistics along the way. Start trusting yourself that you’ll be have the time and money to invest in your dreams, because I promise it will require an investment of both to create miracles. At the least the kind of miracles you want to make.

It will take mindful change to rewire your nervous system and reboot your brain from all the old beliefs holding you prisoner in the confines of a crazy mind so it no longer runs your life and makes you sick with stress and overwhelm.

It’s not that hard once you get the hang of it. But you’ve got to stop thinking things through, or you’ll think yourself right into rut after rut after rut.
You will keep capping your happiness and make you self sick, tired and depressed!!

It does not have to be this way!
Let me support you in following your body minds innate wisdom, your gut instinct because when you get to the root of your pain, stuck sensation trapped in your tissues you can create a solid foundation of safety for yourself and turn your pain into purpose driven living NOT dying!!

Listen to todays magical tool to balance your “split mind”
https://youtu.be/ve2nSEVgD5o
and get you out of thinking and into trusting even when you are afraid. Follow that with exhilarated aliveness rather than fear and reclaim your meaningful life.

Please don’t cap your happiness, you are far to incredible to not be #unstoppable.
Do you have a personal way that you stop self sabotage and move towards your true nature?
Share it please #unlimited

How to reset your Nervous system in 60 seconds

How to reset your Nervous system in 60 seconds

In todays’ post I want to introduce you to the ACE score and show you how you can use it to rescue your abandoned childs part and integrate the core woundings, really get to the root cause of your

trauma so that you can transform anxiety and depression and heal your body mind naturally and live your healthy, fulfilled life. Read on and learn how to reset your nervous system in 60 seconds.

Are you dealing with acute or chronic illness?

Do you have trouble sleeping well, or feel stressed, moody and on edge?

Do you find yourself unable to get better, despite visiting different doctors and trying different food, exercise, prescription and supplement routines?

In my work with root cause resolution, I want to know where in your early childhood experiences these

early life stressors epigenetically have reset the gluticocorticoid receptors, resulting in a lowered threshold required for a stress response. So, early life stress causes chronic release of stress hormones and inflammatory cytokines. Genes that shut off the stress response are silenced.

The body is flooded with inflammation at the slightest provocation, and researchers have confirmed that crucial set of breaks are off, and the body is marinading in inflammatory chemicals.

A study by Dr Joan Kaufman and colleagues also looked at epigenetic differences in children with ACEs and found gene expression changes across the entire genome, including genes implicated in cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and cancer.

We live in a world of constant stressors and they are not going to go away. So getting to the root cause of yours health challenges now could literally save your life later on in life.

dreams

We have learnt to avoid our body’s million signals to slow down. rest, eat and push through the daily grind as our “normal.” Bad things happen like home invasions, car crashes and we never fully process the stress response all the way through the 5 stages of euro modulation. WE keep going, we think we are coping, that we are functioning and twenty, thirty years later we have a body crisis like cancer or an auto immune disease or heart attack that literally stops us on our path of self destruction and forces us to slow down and heal from the root cause of experiences and adversity we may not even remember.
Worse still that a traumatic event like rape or some other unspeakable shock and trauma that has a beginning and an end is the prolonged daily stressors of every day living in a modern, fast paced world. When we don’t take stock and practice radical self care, when we ignore our tension instead of addressing it, our bodies experience a buildup of cortisol, the flight-or-fight hormone. Over time, an abundance of cortisol can have disastrous consequences. Brain fog, lowered immunity, heart problems, elevated blood sugar, eating issues, diabetes, and hormonal and sleep disturbances are just a few common ramifications of persistent stress.The good news is, there are simple daily rituals you can use that don’t cost anything and that you can use straight away.What if you could use some simple practices when you feel your fight/flight/freeze response kicking in to move through your triggers without causing damage to your body or brain?We can rebuild our resilience, health, and peace of mind through the 5 keys to transform chronic stress, anxiety and depression naturally. When you learn how to heal your body, manage your stress response and DRESS ( diet, rest, exercise. sleep and supplementation) for success you will reclaim your meaningful, healthy life!Today, I want to invite you to listen to part 1 of a 2 part masterclass on “Abandonment and healing your childhood wounds that are holding you back from living in your fullest expression of health, wealth and happiness.You can listen in here:What is the Ace test?

Rescuing your child for a fulfilled life now

 

Your homework for today is to:

  1. Take your ace score here at http://www.acestudy.org/
  2. Take the enneagram quiz here at http://www.janspiller.com
  3. Practice mindfulness by using the following 5 steps to Stress Less living below
  4. Use the Peace process which I guide a client through here:

Mindfulness peels away layers of rushing, negative self-talk, and anxiety. It encourages us to honor ourselves as living, breathing, deserving humans. Mindfulness softens life’s challenges and makes us aware of the larger picture, in a kind and gentle way, by valuing and tuning in to the present moment.

Time is not a renewable resource, and it can’t be saved for later, either. The only moments we can treasure and appreciate, truly, are the ones we are living through right now. That alone is reason enough to be mindful—but we can also gain a physical health benefit: Mindfulness diminishes harmful cortisol build-up.

We have a lot to gain by learning to practice mindfulness.

  1. Name your feeling.

When you notice stress, take one minute (or hopefully more) to quietly discern what you’re feeling and where you perceive sensation in your body. Go ahead and actually name it out loud, such as, “I’m feeling anger, and my pulse is pounding” or “Fear is giving me a knot in my stomach.” In a hurry? Then walk while you think, but do it slowly so you can focus.

  1. Observe the situation—without self-judgment.

That’s really what you’re doing by naming your feelings. You’ve taken a step back to observe, completely without judgment, the way a camera lens would do. This allows you to detach from the drama itself and just consider how it affects you. What do you see?

By the way, if you feel resistance to naming the emotion, or if your thoughts are racing, or you just want to hurry through or dismiss the feelings, that’s normal. This kind of focused attention isn’t our usual status quo. Focusing on yourself takes practice!

  1. Just breathe.

Take 3 to 5 deep, measured breaths. You can even close your eyes. This focused, purposeful deep breathing is the opposite of the shallow, rapid breathing that accompanies stress. The dramatic shift from that anxious pant to a slow, refreshing breath resets, calms, and informs your system immediately. When I’m tense, I feel a difference every time after I slow my breathing. It’s like magic.

  1. Make friends with what you’re feeling.

Rather than engaging in the default habit of self-criticism or judgment—for example, “Why should I be angry about that? I’m so stupid”— cultivate a new awareness and curiosity about the emotion or reaction. Pay close attention to what’s really in front of you, not an automatic interpretation of it. Usually, our versions of present events come from our past and prevent us from truly seeing what’s happening in reality. Question whether your story is really true—or does it just seem that way?

  1. Finally, make room for self-acceptance.

Have some compassion for your imperfectly perfect humanness. The overachievers among us tend to think “I’m never good enough” thoughts. Others of us may judge ourselves undeserving or feel selfish for shining a light on ourselves. Meet those doubts with softness, kindness, and an understanding that you are a loving, valuable presence in the world.

Let this 5-step technique become your best new rituality. It takes practice, but with time, you can achieve an effective stress reversal in 30 seconds!

Perhaps along the way you’ll also find yourself becoming more aware and appreciative of the world around you.

Right here and now is what we have in front of us, and it’s a friendly, important place that we don’t want to miss. Looking at what we’re presented with more closely, even in its difficult moments, just might be the answer.

I choose health, peace, and freedom over stress, worry, and mindless activity. How about you?

me being whom I am today,
and whom I am becoming –
thank you for YOU!https://youtu.be/JChezqNbQLk

And to all the incredible women
whom I have had touch me and
let me touch you,
those of you who don’t see your gifts
as gifts – who have made yourself small
through shame, guilt that was never your
and the dreaded illusion of not being enough,
I hear you, I SEE you and I want you to
know, that you are MORE than enough
just showing up, every day as YOU.

Today being Intl Womens Day,
I want to share

one of the hardest things

for me to witness as I mentor women.

 

It’s hearing a woman

blame herself for

the behavior of someone else.

 

“If I was smart enough,

rich enough, connected enough,

eloquent enough”

 

Then they would hire me/ partner with me/

work with me/ fill in the blank.

 

Here’s what I mean:

Maybe you want to start speaking to audiences,

but don’t think you are eloquent enough,

 

or maybe you want to start offering

workshops and retreats but you don’t feel

like you are connected enough,

 

or you might want to raise your rates

but are not sure you know enough to be

paid more.

 

Now I’m not saying we can’t

get better at what we do.

But there’s also a standard

that suffocates.

 

You can get another certification,

more training, read more books,

get plastic surgery or whatever your

“good enough” cup of tea is.

 

But ultimately in this

scenario you are giving your power

over to someone else.

 

They might struggle with commitment,

or consistency, or showing up for themselves,

and we become willing to give away

our power in the hope that

someone will become different, so

we can have the result we want.

 

HOW TO SILENCE THE INNER CRITIC
THE MEAN GIRL
THE SELF SABOTAGE
KEEPING YOU STUCK IN
NOT ENOUGHNESS:

 

Notice when you are telling yourself
things that involve negative judgement phrases like:

 

“I should…”,

“I need to…”,

“If only I…”:

“I’m not…”

“I always…”

“I never…”
“YES, but….”

Would you be willing to pause,

  • step back and look at the big picture, ask yourself “how am I benefiting from this?”
  • reflect on how far you’ve come (don’t just limit yourself to where you need to go)

 

Reframing your judgements can give you a completely fresh
perspective that inspires you and even gives you energy.
And when you are able to see the big picture you’ll have a
sense of confidence, in what IS working,
rather than focusing on what’s lacking.
Be amazing because your voice matters
and you are more than enough!

Much love and happy love day to you!

“There are only two choices regarding commitment to living a meaningful, healthy, happy life – either you are in or you are out.
There is no such thing as life in between.” Pat Riley

 

I am curious, how often do you wonder “why am I so tired?”, “when am I ever going to feel excited and happy again?” or “is this it? A future of struggle and pain and hardship?”.

What would it be like if you could get to the root cause of your chronic stress, your fatigue, your anxiety, depression and pain naturally – AND you could truly recharge your body and your mind and reclaim your meaningful life?

It is time to get to the root cause of your pain and stop dimming your Diamond light. It’s time to move through the fear and share your gifts with those who are waiting for you, not someone like you, but you!

Like physical pain warns us that something is not right with our bodies, emotional pain issues a warning about something that needs healing in our subconscious.Like a small cut, normal sadness fades overtime. But longer lasting depressive symptoms represent deeper damage that needs critical repair.

The key to finding out the true cause of this extreme sadness lies in embracing the feeling of the emotion and allowing it to lead you to its core

There you will find incorrectly processed information stored inside your subconscious known as bad clusters. Bad clusters are sources of powerfully negative emotions that are constantly activated by triggers in the environment and cause detrimental damage to your emotional and physical system.

Using the True Nature Mindfulness process and Purpose Mapping  method, you can release pain ( trapped sensation in your body) and release the associated feelings of emotional pain from your childhood. Working with thousands of women over the past 16 years, I have seen the results of rewiring the nervous system and rebooting the brain by working at a core level. Only when you have done that inner healing will everything else you choose wether it be working with a mentor on your business or in your love relationship or your money flow, give you lasting results.
The child parts still carrying the bad clusters, will cease to run your life now.

 

It’s a revolutionary and amazingly simple method to use.
its not a magic pill, its not always comfortable
but then you know that where you are is not comfortable either.
You have nothing to lose except the things you no longer need.
