@LynnHess @JennyBBones Haha, just caught my Freudian slip. Meant to write 'fair' and wrote 'fear' instead! Perfect!

@LynnHess @JennyBBones I am SO in for this date!!!
And yeah, life ain't fear. Now what? ;-)
@Carol Hess You have mad genius skills when it comes to seeing ideas everywhere Carol!

@Vidya Sury I'd love to hear you sing it Vidya!
@treatmenttalk Funny how this one came through. I was looking through posts to find a quote and suddenly came up with the idea to pull one thought from each of them. Realized it was a pretty good review of 2013, and voila!
@treatmenttalk That moment was surreal, and truthfully, it took everything in me to just savour it and not talk!

@caitlingrace1 Awesome! I sense a kindred spirit in the house ;)

@Lori Asking how we want to feel is huge because for many, we've been told for so long that we are not our feelings. I've begun a daily practice of asking how I want to feel about whatever is coming up next on my schedule, or how can I feel more of one of my core desired feelings. It also keeps me more grounded in my body rather than my head!
I'd love to join a hangout with you but they're always on Wed mornings and I'm with clients!
@suziecheel It's really a beautiful process Suzie, and would tie in beautifully with doing what brings you joy. If you're interested, I'm leading a virtual Desire Mapping group on Sunday mornings. You can join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/635840046461748/
@Jill Prescott I was stunned. And I cried too :)
@Sabrina at MyMiBoSo That Calvin & Hobbes quote is one of my all time favourites and says much about our journey through life!

@speakervictor Hello, my name is Sandi, and I was a closet woo-er ;)
And yes, living through those virtues or in touch with our values makes all the difference. I know it may sound naive, but it's all so much simpler than we make it, and as you say, getting along is the point. Thanks for being here Victor.

@musebrad Tim's a great guy! What he teaches though is how to develop your coaching business after you're trained. I'd suggest working with a coach yourself to get some clarity, and doing a bit of research on coaching. Talk to a few coaches, research some coaching schools, etc. It's easier to trust when you have some information :)
8 months ago on 8 Truths to Getting Unstuck and Reclaiming Your Freedom
@musebrad Coaching is a great path because in doing the work to offer this work for others, you deal with a lot of your own issues. And then once you're trained, you've got to continue to do the work so it becomes a way of walking your talk in the world.
And there are times when you still need to ask for help. That's where I was before the shift. It's a vulnerable place, but very profound on the other side.
@David Stevens Ha, the big reveal indeed!
8 months ago on Embracing the Woo
@suddenlyjamie Thanks Jamie, I'm so glad it resonated, and of course, that I'm not the only one. I've been amazed at how effective this new work is, and love where I'm heading. It just seemed time to spell it out, and what's great about that is getting how much others can relate to my concerns.
@ElleSommer Haha, if you're the kind of weird that's coming my way, then I'm all for it Elle! Thanks for the lovely support, and for leading the way into the woo ;)
@AngelaArtemis Definitely less of who we're supposed to be, and yes to wearing our stripes with honour! Thanks dear Angela.
@Vidya Sury When we embrace what works, it's always energizing, isn't it?
Looking forward to reading your post dear Vidya.
@Ellen Berg As terrifying as it can be sometimes, there's something also deeply powerful about making a public declaration. And while I've been heading this way for a while, this needed to be said. I'm thankful for the ones who get it, and so appreciate your support!
@ElleSommer I think I'd like to travel with you Elle! :)

@CorinneRodrigues1 Now you've made me curious! What do we have in common Corinne?
And thanks for popping by; I'm looking forward to our connection!
@treatmenttalk Thanks Cathy! Even though we celebrated our Thanksgiving last month, I felt the wave of gratitude and went with it :)
@Suzie Cheel I love meeting Abba fans! Wish we could have an Abba dance party, and I'd add that to my list Suzie!
@Ali_Davies Haha, love that Ali! What would you put on your list?
@Carol Hess That does it....we MUST visit you on the east coast!
@LolaSpeaking #67 & #69 are ones only brave souls admit in public ;)
@LolaSpeaking #102 - I love that you LOVE this!
@Carol Hess What surprised me was that the fir 40-50 things just flowed out of me, and then I had to start thinking! I realized in that moment how easy it is to take things for granted, and why there's so much value in this exercise.
What are some of your favoUrite things Carol? ;)
@Ellen Berg Salted carmel dark chocolate? Must. Go. Shopping! Are you open to trying that too @KDillabough?
p.s. Foodgasmic? New fave description!
@Vidya Sury I always feel this day is a bonus because I've already celebrated Thanksgiving a month ago. But we can never feel too much gratitude and appreciation, can we Vidya? ;)
@KDillabough The Lindt dark chocolate with sea salt is my favourite. And yes to kindred spirits! I read your list again and realized we had a lot of overlap!
p.s. I have a box in my office full of journals, waiting patiently to be used...but I keep buying more. One of my quirks ;)
@Vishnu's Virtues It's so simple and yet, it's made such a difference for my Dad in the past couple of weeks. And yes, I love that while we're helping ourselves, we are radiating positive energy and sharing love with the world. Makes me happy :)
9 months ago on A Simple Relaxation Technique to Connect Your Heart & Mind
What a great question to celebrate this milestone Lori! Congratulations!
When you live your life in service and sharing your gifts you are doing way more than taking up space. You are making a difference to the space you take up, which I think is what we're all here for :)

@Craig McBreen Reminds me of that Eat the Frog book by Brian Tracy! I love that you do it to start the day with it, because it becomes so much easier to procrastinate and/or avoid if we leave it for later. Like you, I much prefer easy breezy :)

@Hannah BWYA Haha, I knew that Captain Kirk quote would surprise folks ;)
And yes, I am so so tired of hearing people talk about emotions like things they can dispose of. My perspective is to be with your emotions like you be with the weather - let them blow through you without resistance. Trying to resist a hurricane (or fear or anger) is a pointless endeavour!
@RyanKBiddulph Observing, breathing, and feeling what's there to feel rather than avoiding, resisting, and even pushing through. And now you've got me thinking more about the fear/faith dance, so thank you Ryan!
@ElleSommer I wrote this post before discovering the HeartMath Institute, and now that Coelho quote makes more sense than ever!
@Victor Schueller Wow, synchronicity once again, as I've had a few people mention they only just heard of HeartMath. Let me know what you think Victor - let's spread the word, shall we? ;)
9 months, 1 week ago on A Simple Relaxation Technique to Connect Your Heart & Mind
@Hannah BWYA Yes, there is so much self love and nurturing in these simple practices. The HeartMath site is a wealth of resources, the best kind of rabbit hole to fall into ;)
@Betsy at Zen Mama Honestly, I wasn't sure he'd go for it when I brought it up, so I'm absolutely delighted at his results! I catch myself doing it now periodically throughout the day. I just put my hand over my heart (which has become a lovely anchor) and my breathing shifts instantly!
@ElleSommer While reading the HeartMath book I was quite inspired by all the case studies, and amazed, because the techniques are so simple. When I talked to my Dad this week and he shared how much better he feels...well, that has definitely turned me into a raving HeartMath fan :)
@speakervictor Sometimes I find it funny that we're so afraid of the unknown, like it's kind of a cosmic joke! And I agree, we need to let go and allow life to deliver our desires - working hard is overrated ;)
9 months, 3 weeks ago on What are we all so afraid of? (pulling back the curtain on fear)
@AngelaArtemis We need to listen to those 'desires that won't go away' more in life, don't you think? That's why your work with intuition is so invaluable!
@Ellen Berg Yes x 1000!
@Julie Barrett Totally agree, and even though it's not my favourite kind of learning, I'm glad it shows up reliably!
@Vicky White Negative motivation for the win ;)
@Carol Hess I know, I had the same reaction when I saw Kirk's name ;)
And yeah, dying with regrets is one I've worked on myself. I don't think of it much anymore, but every once in a while (like 3 am) it sneaks in and tries to grab hold. I'm happy to report I gave as good as I got in this recent tussle ;)
@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes I can only imagine that fear, but on the flip side I've often felt the fear of failing my parents, or even worse, disappointing them. What do you do to get past it?
