Intuitive Coach + Hypnotherapist, guiding you to awaken your intuition to Second Guess Less and take more inspired action in your life. #chooselovenow
First off Lori, this video is such an amazing find!
And the message is such a powerful one - one that I struggle with because I DO tend to seek the silver lining, the potential, the opportunities for growth. It's my nature and it's the result of a lifetime of building those habits.
As you said above, even though no one else could say those words to you, by saying them to yourself you were able to survive and give yourself exactly what you needed.
But you - and Brene Brown - are right. Sometimes that pain needs to be honored and not brushed over or changed or made better so quickly.
I think in my personal relationships - my family and friends - I practice empathy a lot better.
With my clients, I practice it to an extent, but as the nature of the relationship is different - i.e. that they hired me to help them move through the "stuckness" and overwhelm - I often guide them out of that space more quickly than I would with a friend.
Perhaps there is space for more of this though even with my coaching clients...opening my heart to tune in around this so that I can truly honor my clients' journeys too.

@Lori Synchronicity! This is probably the 3rd (or maybe 4th!) time I've heard the name Donna Eden - typically a sure sign from the Universe for me to check it out, so I will do that NOW! Thanks for always expanding my mind - and the tools in my toolkit.
4 weeks ago on How Do You Deal With Fear?
Lori, I love learning new simple mind and body shifts from you! I've been a big fan of EFT for myself and with clients, but I had not seen this "fear" point yet! I think it's brilliant the way you complement your deeper daily practices of energy work with quick and easy tricks! I do the same, and it makes all the difference in the world to keep me grounded (and sane).
But of course! My ego does her best to disempower me - but I always see through it (eventually).

Oh I love this, Lori! I agree - we are always in CHOICE. And your choice is brilliant as it empowers rather than disempowers you! It's where we realize our own control - not over hackers, not over technology, but rather over your own relationship with the thoughts and feelings that came up!
@Lori Ha! I love when we're synchronized!
1 month, 1 week ago on The Key to Success: Discovering Your Success Process
Love the image and quote you chose for this Lori! I also love how you dig deep so that you can bring this sense of FLOW to more of your life!In fact, our "success processes" are QUITE similar!
@Lori Simple acts of giving every single day - I love it, Lori! Balance isn't the "sexiest" topic, but I stand behind it 100% because everything is energy, and when we allow it to flow out, we're only opening ourselves up for more to flow in.
2 months ago on What’s Your Prime Directive?
Love this as much as I love Captain James T. Kirk of the starship Enterprise! Former Trekkie here, hee hee ;).I love this alternative approach to the New Year, Lori, and I'm down to play!
My prime directive as a human being is to be a vessel for love, and I'm getting even more specific with it this year to include not only flowing that love outward toward my man, my friends, my clients, but to also be a vessel that simply HOLDS that love, receiving it fully for MYSELF too!
Thanks for helping me get clear on this Lori!
@Lori And a very happy holiday to you as well, Lori!
2 months, 2 weeks ago on How to Live Without Regrets
I love this post for so many reasons:1. You were a calligrapher! How amazing is that?2. That poem speaks volumes about how consciously you choose to live your life.3. And I agree with you on releasing regrets...our ego minds might try to pop them in there, but they only serve us to the point that they inspire action toward changing our lives for the better in the NOW - not by keeping us stuck in the woulda coulda shoulda of the past. As your friend said, we are doing the best we can - it's our nature. Compassion and forgiveness flow more easily when we accept this.
Sandi, of course you pop into my mind as I'm reflecting on this past year and those who have influenced my path...and then I see this beautiful message.
"The truth is, we all touch each others’ lives in some way."
Yes, yes, you do.
I love Calvin & Hobbes - Watterson is genius!
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Day by Day Everything Changes
Love that you found a balance in how you shared this story with your children - giving them an opportunity for embracing the true SPIRIT of Christmas (the generosity!) rather than the aspects that might fade (or get shattered!) over time.As for me? I still believe Santa is real because it's the energy of Santa that I always looked forward to - the time with my family, a time for storytelling, a time for giving and receiving gifts. I suppose I was always a funny child (and am still!), straddling these two worlds of what we could experience with our senses while still believing in pure magic and the unseen mystery of it all.
3 months ago on A Different Santa Claus Story
Lori, I love this post SO MUCH! This "forgetting and remembering" that we do throughout life is one of the reasons I do the work I do...to give us tools to remember more often and more quickly HOW the Universe is supporting us.
My daily gratitude list (recently renamed "Moments of Appreciation" help me keep that perspective before I go to bed each night, as I literally list all the ways the Universe is continually supporting me.
That said, of course I still forget from time to time, and fortunately I have beautiful souls like YOU in my tribe to remind me through posts such as this :).
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Is Life Supporting You?
@Lori What a Divine intervention Lori! The post that was shared as my "latest" was quite old - but clearly one the Universe wanted you to see!
Thank you so much for your kind words and I'm honored to be a part of your life and your amazing community!
3 months, 4 weeks ago on It’s the Third Anniversary of Life, for instance!
Happy anniversary, Lori!
You take up so much more than "just space" here - in fact you, CREATE, CULTIVATE, & NOURISH this community! I'm so grateful you typed those first words and that you continue to show up here to share all of your insight, wisdom, and mind-opening questions with us :).
So much of this applies to work as a coach as well, and I especially love integrating #3 into my work as the power of HOW we communicate and the words we choose reveals so much about what's simmering underneath - great post!

@Lori Indeed it is!
4 months, 3 weeks ago on How Much Control Do We Have?
@Lori You bet - I believe that time is relative anyway and our brilliantly complex mind and soul can handle this balance of being/doing with much more ease than our ego would have us believe! In fact, let it go and take action at the same time is one of my big messages in the world :)
Lori, I love how you balance this article between letting go AND taking action. I read a great concept in The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks that I think you'd love.
Worrying IS useful - but only IF it's something you can change and that you can change right now.
You allowed that annoyance of the telemarketer to open up a well of resourcefulness inside!
