Collaborate and Create
If you’re feeling stuck and overwhelmed and can’t seem to gain the traction needed to move forward, sitting down with a coach might be the answer. Sharing our struggles with someone can open us up to new resources and creative solutions. It can take the power out of the ‘story’ and create a safe space to dive deep into the dialogue that underlies our daily lives. Diving deep lets us calm the chaos and create harmony between our thoughts and actions. Helping us develop the insight we need to connect to the confidence and courage we already have, empowering us to create the life we want.
Sometimes we need a gentle nudge. Some encouragement. And even permission to feel what we feel, so we can gather the wisdom to create the relationships and life we want. Throughout the journey of our lives, many of us were taught that feeling our feelings was an inconvenience, something to be avoided or hidden. However, humanity’s collective experience shows that feelings provide useful information. Only by exploring and expressing the emotional body can we begin to discover the intelligence within our feelings. Developing this vital emotional intelligence and tolerance creates the capacity necessary to navigate life’s ups and downs.
Time to Align
We can learn so much by taking the observer’s chair and creating a dialogue with our inner critic. However, many of us have developed a pattern of bypassing or overriding anything dark and uncomfortable, leading to a life of shame-based behaviors and decisions. But to become whole-hearted individuals, we want to acknowledge, accept, and integrate ALL of who we are. Even the ugly stuff. There are no bad parts, it is all USEFUL. And it is only by acknowledging and accepting all parts of ourselves that we begin to discover the gifts of our imperfections.
