What if we showed up as just who we are? With no censoring and no thought to being too much or having to work for approval or love. What does that look like to you? Showing up authentically is your birthright - it's the only thing that life asks of you - be you. Not [...]

I’ve been uncovering more about my deep belief that everything must be earned - that old “if it isn’t hard, it isn’t worth anything” paradigm. Do you have that belief? Do you struggle? My hidden and limiting beliefs are in conflict with my outward outlook and beliefs. This causes quite a bit of strain and stress on me [...]

Move Forward

By |October 26th, 2015|

Move forward - even if it’s messy. I am hard on myself - too hard on myself. I always have been: crazy high expectations for every aspect of my life - no balls dropped, flat out do-it-all-or-else energy coursing through my body, mind, heart. And, if I didn’t do it all - well that was [...]

Ask, receive, done.

This is a picture of my dad helping my youngest climb up a creek bank. She needed a little extra help from someone she trusted and he was there - ready and willing to lend a hand. So simple for both of them - she needed help and asked without reservation. He wanted to help [...]

Start Leaving What You’re Going To Leave

By |June 20th, 2015|

“Start leaving what you’re going to leave” - those words from Danielle La Porte from months ago are still working on me. It’s been a slow bloom for me although it resonated deeply upon first reading. Start leaving… that part really hit home. I felt empowered to take that first step of leaving even as [...]

My coach vision is: I am deep sanctuary, liberator of heart's song, catalyst of freedom and invoker of new stories. I had a powerful experience birthing that vision and I feel it deep in my bones - down to the very marrow. I believe this about me. And, that feels power-full. The definition of sanctuary [...]

On the road to Yes!

By |August 8th, 2014|

At times, in my life, I have had difficulty in saying yes to the things/experiences that I most want.  I allowed fear and feelings of not being worthy to interfere with what I most desired.  I thought that I could do anything for a set amount of time and chose that over my heart’s desire, [...]

Vulnerability and Moving Through

By |June 29th, 2014|

For years, I have said, “I can do anything for a set amount of time.”  What I meant was that I could push through, persevere, maybe even suffer if I knew how long it was going to last.  My mindset was one of buckling down, shoring up the personal armor and making the best of [...]

My very simple definition of Shadow and Ego is this-we are born with all of our traits and characteristics.  And, as we learn about ourselves, our families and our culture we start to let some aspects of ourselves shine and other aspects - those we deem less worthy - we push down into the shadows.  [...]

Making Peace with My Inner Critic

By |May 12th, 2014|

I get scared sometimes to put myself out there-into the big world. I wonder if I will be judged or worse- ignored. I don’t like those feelings and I recognize them as negative self-talk i.e. “inner critic.” I also recognize that my inner critic’s primary job is to keep me safe. When I remember my [...]
