483 | You Can’t Skip Over the Feeling Parts show art 483 | You Can’t Skip Over the Feeling Parts

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I want to share some thoughts on what happens when we try to skip over parts of our healing, our feelings and how we subconsciously cannot push through these pieces no matter how hard we try. This is in alignment with one of the processes we use in the NLP Breakthrough Day Experience, where we use TIME Techniques to release emotions that we are holding onto in the order of anger, sadness, fear, hurt, shame/guilt.  It brought up the conversation that we spend most of our lives holding onto or trying to skip past our emotions. In this episode, we discuss: 1)   When...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I have a couple of different perspective shifts when it comes to visualizing your goals and bringing your visions to life.  This episode was inspired by Mel Robbins and one of her podcast episodes and it really hit home when I recognized that I spend more time visualizing the “end game or end product” instead of visualizing the mistakes, the challenges and getting up from them and moving forward.  In this episode, we discuss: 1)   How can you visualize and focus on the things that don’t go perfectly in the pursuit of your goals and still find the...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I have a question for you to ask yourself.  Are you waiting for everything to be perfect, to be lined up perfectly until you decide to stand in your light? Are you waiting to release the podcast, do the live, share your story, write the chapter, the book, speak from stage, or launch your program when it is done and perfect? That is never going to happen and you will be waiting a long time before you can release it. More importantly you are missing incredible opportunities, people and experiences because they won’t see you for who you truly are. In this episode, we...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I am sharing a quote I heard Tony Robbins say and it made me stop and really reflect on the word problems. “Every problem is a gift and without problems we would not grow and if we’re not growing we are not living” ~ Tony Robbins. In this episode, we discuss: 1)   There are problems which I would rather call obstacles, challenges, and difficulties. When you are stuck IN your problems it’s really hard to find your way out.  Staying stuck in your problems, I visualize being trapped under them and that is when we give the word problems power over us. ...

In this episode, I am sharing thoughts on how mentors can teach you how to collapse time.  I have been in the role of being a lifelong student for years, and I recently experienced a Breakthrough Day as a Master NLP Practitioner and it had me reflecting on this journey. In this episode, we discuss: 1)  We all have a personal and business vision of who we are and where we want to be, but getting there on our own, with all life’s distractions, commitments, psychological baggage, perceived limitations and roadblocks, can block our momentum.  Our brain, limiting thoughts and...

More Episodes

In this episode, this is a shout out episode to anyone who needs to create a shift on the common phrase that it is “better to give than receive.” Yes, giving is an incredible feeling and we need more humans giving to each other without any expectation or attachments in return.  However we are creating this energy of not allowing ourselves to receive and not fully understanding how it is holding us back in our relationships, life and yes in business. Giving and receiving are part of a karmic cycle, they go together, they are two halves of the same coin.  I would argue that you can’t do one without the other.

In this episode, we discuss:
1) Let’s start with you are enough and it is safe for you to receive.  You are worthy of all the compliments, praise and financial abundance just because you are here. It is not weakness, it is not that you can’t do it on your own, it is that we are not meant to do this life alone and believing that we are leaves us in a state of isolation, despair and frustration. Prioritizing giving over receiving may feel like it keeps you safe and others at a safe distance yet this can become very isolating.

2) Receiving is an exercise, an experience that might feel incredibly new and uncomfortable to you. It is actually a muscle that needs to be worked, to be flexed to become stronger. This can start as simple as buying yourself flowers, practicing gratitude for recognizing all that is available for you to receive and simply saying thank you without deflecting back on someone else. If you respond out of guilt you are negating that person’s compliment.

3) If it is so important why don’t we do it more?  Childhood upbringing, being told that is selfish to receive or a sign of weakness to even ask for help. Receiving also creates connections that can leave us feeling open, vulnerable and exposed.  That is scary!
