transformative healing, led from within
Hey wonder woman. Are you tired?
Success hasn’t been easy, but there’s a part of you that glows when you think about all you’ve accomplished.
Everything looks perfect on the outside. You have the family, the house, the career and the lifestyle other women would envy.
Or maybe you aren’t there yet.
Maybe you’re striving to be one of those women who has it all.
You’re working hard, sacrificing your time, family, self care or relationships to build the business of your dreams, in hopes that you’ll eventually have the time to enjoy the awesome life you’ve built.
Deep down, you worry that you’ll never get there and in the meantime, you’re struggling to keep your head above water.
You’re not alone.
Most women work so hard to keep up the perfect facade, but they’re crumbling inside. Successful women suffer silently from the pressure and stress of achieving and maintaining their dream life.
Women like you are highly capable and independent. Asking for help can feel shameful and impossible. Maybe you feel like deep down, you don’t deserve the support you desperately need.
Don’t keep scrolling. Let that sink in.
Do you feel like:
- You should be happier, but your happiness is fleeting.
- You’re frantically struggling to maintain, but inside you feel like you’re drowning.
- You’re failing. You’re not doing enough for your family, your clients or even for yourself.
- You want a peaceful and relaxing life, but most days you’re busy and stressed.
- Something is missing, but you don’t know what.
- You’re torn between what you have to do and what you really want, deep down.
- Your inner perfectionist is working so hard to be in control and keep up appearances. (What would they think if you were REAL for once?)
- You’re often up at night worrying, and your energy isn’t what it used to be.
- Stress is impacting your health. You have chronic tension, headaches, pain or illness.
- You’re suffering anxiety or depression, but your pain isn’t visible and you keep it hidden.
- You’re increasingly impatient, and find yourself snapping at your kids, spouse or colleagues, perpetually irritated and frustration.
- The inner voice never stops. “Hold yourself together!” “If I don’t do it, nobody will.” “Just make it work.” “What is wrong with me?” “If one more person asks me for something, I might lose it!” “Just get this done and I’ll have more time…”
Deep inside we each have an inner wisdom. A soul-level knowing of what we want and need. The problem is that we are conditioned to disassociate with those feelings. We’re distracted from the gentle whispers of our inner voice by the frantic, busy, loud external pressures and societal expectations.
Unfortunately inspiration and inner guidance is most clear in spacious moments of rest, joy and creativity.
How often do you make the time or space to connect to yourself?
The Path to Healing is a Spiral
My work is based on the idea that we are always moving and changing. Life is cyclical and just as there are times to go inward and withdraw, there are also seasons for growth and activity. The following pillars are steps in my process and concepts that you can carry forward into your life.
Together we’ll identify your starting place and I’ll guide you through the process to help you continue moving forward.
Most of us have become experts at disconnecting. We distract ourselves from pain or tension in our bodies by occupying our minds, obsessing over the past or worrying about the future. We use the important work we are doing as an excuse to disconnect from ourselves.
Your inner wisdom lives in your body and you can only access that information by being in the present moment. Greater power can emerge in your life as you solidify your connection to self, to your body and to your spirit. Cultivating authentic connection with others in a safe, supported space is another important connecting practice.
Allowing takes the least effort and can be the most difficult to actually do. The idea here is to give yourself permission to first just be where you are.
That can be recognizing how unfulfilled you feel in a relationship or a position at work. Cultivating awareness instead of immediately trying to fix the problem or change the situation can give you insight into what is really going on.
Most of us are more likely to avoid our feelings or try to control them rather than to allow them to be. When you rush past this part, you miss the opportunity for deeper healing.
Exploration is in my nature and I love to gather insight and information about all sorts of problems. Instead of being annoyed by the screaming pain in your back or gripping tension in your shoulders, what would happen if you became curious?
Why do you push yourself so hard that you end up hunched over the computer all day, without a break? What can you do to break up your day, make your workspace more ergonomic or make yourself less stressed?
What self care practices or therapies can help you combat this consistent physical and emotional stress? Why don’t you deserve to feel good?
In your body, alignment happens when your joints are stacked above each other in a neutral way, so you can move freely and easily without pain.
In your life, alignment happens when your inner self matches your external life. In other words, your thoughts, emotions and intentions match how you show up and interact in the world.
Finding alignment in your life helps you show up more powerfully and authentically in your day to day life, when you work in the flow, with more ease and you live more joyfully, with intention.
True healing is multidimensional in natural and impacts you on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.
Often physical pain is related to an emotional pain or trauma. This trauma can also impact mental processing and acuity.
Seeking to heal your body without acknowledging the emotional or spiritual cause may only suppress your symptoms.
Healing also happens in a spiral, and you may come back to an issue many times. Like an onion, you are peeling away and releasing another layer that is having a negative impact on your life.
Do you have a deep desire to improve your life, expand your business or live more fully? Have you noticed that when you seek to grow, some challenge or drama arises?
This is totally normal and creates opportunities for you to release the parts of yourself that are holding you back. Growth happens in a cycle of expansion, followed by periods of contraction.
As you reach a new level of success, your goals will expand, then naturally bring up fear about reaching the next level.
Happiness, quality of life, health and success can continue to elevate, as you continue to heal and grow.
