Unlearn Your Limits & Become Limitless

Stop doing this one thing as a coach…

I didn’t love the advice I heard a coach giving the other day, even though I can see where she was coming from…

And so I created a video about why it’s soooo important to stay neutral as a coach and NOT make assumptions that we know what’s best for our clients!

Have a beautiful weekend! It’s our last weekend before school starts! How is it that it’s starting earlier every year πŸ€”

P.S. In our latest podcast episode we talk about how psychedelics are making a mark in the healing world 😳 We dive deep A Course in Miracles style, and discuss the benefits of letting go of mental constructs πŸ’™

What I learned from my Step-Dad…

I hope you had a great week! I felt really off last week if I’m being honest 😒

I had finished writing my book, and at first I thought maybe I was just needed a little extra self-care time since I had put a lot of energy into this project.

But it wasn’t really tracking…

Because sure I always love a nice day off, but I had been practicing self-care the whole time, and so it didn’t feel like stress and overwhelm was the issue.

I also had zero motivation to do the things I usually love to do when I have a couple of free days – like heading to the beach, going for a massage, taking an extra long walk…

I wanted no part of that.

I was angry and hating the world, and wanted to be alone.

After two days of this, I was like, “universe, please help me shift this!”

And then I immediately had the idea to call my parents, my mom and step-dad.

It had been awhile since we had a nice long chat.

Well, during the conversation something interesting happened.

We somehow got into the issues Hockey Canada is having right now with sexual assault cases. Their funding has been stopped while investigations are being carried out.

It led to my step-dad sharing all of the work he’s a part of for the Ontario Curling Association on diversity & inclusion.

He is so passionate about learning and sharing right now, with even correcting his friends when they make inappropriate jokes.

And in his words…”I’m a red neck from Saskatchewan, and have so much to learn.”

WOW.

What a shift!

And something happened during that call… his inspiration was palpable, and I started feeling it.

I then got inspired – not around anything in-particular – but his energy impacted me.

I got off the phone, and went on to do a workout, did stuff around the house, went for a long walk with the dog, and enjoyed a night out with my husband and friends celebrating the writing I had just completed!

It was a magical day πŸ’«

All because of inspiration and motivation.

What I realized in that moment, is that we have to have a bigger purpose. He is 75 and is so passionate about what he is doing.

Connecting to something we are excited about – whether it’s career oriented, advocating for a cause, or even good health – is everything.

Without it we have no motivation.

And not having motivation leads to depression-like feelings and maybe even depression itself.

That is how I felt those two days and couldn’t stand it any longer.

I realized I am my happiest when I’m creating.

Creating a book, real estate investing, or just keeping myself on track with feeling good – whether that’s working out or taking classes to sharpen my intuition.

It’s a purpose.

And it doesn’t have to be grandiose.

So tune in, and ask yourself what is your purpose right now? What lights you up, and drives you forward to create and manifest?

Per A Course in Miracles, it’s our function (not some airy, fairy dream), to create joy.

We have a whole universe there to support us.

But we do have free will, and we can decide to stay down-in-the-dumps, or ask for some help to shift it.

And for those of you wanting a deeper dive into these principals, in our podcast this week, we talk about the ingredients to access that un-limitless potential inside of all of us. Where there’s a will there’s a way…

Have a beautiful weekend!

The book I read in a day…

I read (or should I say listened to), the book, “Into the Light”, by John Lerma, during my 8+ drive to Tahoe the other day. It is amazing!

A hospice doctor started noticing patterns with people who were about to pass. In terms of extraordinary visions about the other side, and what we’re meant to do with our time here before we pass. So much so he couldn’t deny it.

It’s heart warming and up-lifting.

We refer to the book in our podcast this week, as we share our version of Stranger Thing’s “upside down world”, except this version is the Golden Upside Down…

I hope this brings you a little peace, and a shift in perspective from fear to love. When we shift our state of mind and how we’re making decisions, we are truly limitless in what we can co-create with the universe πŸ’«

Oh, and speaking of books, I finished writing mine this week and it’s off to the publisher! I am so excited!

It was a journey and I miss it already. I’ll share my biggest take aways in an upcoming post πŸ™Œ

But… I could not have done it without the gal who helped me create the book proposal! Richelle used to work for Hay House, and was in charge of the marketing and PR for their authors. She knows all of the ins and outs on what it takes to have a proposal accepted by a publisher, including platform coaching (i.e. how big of a data base / following do you need to get a book deal, etc)!

She started her own business and little while ago, and found she just wasn’t able to help everyone through 1:1 (I was lucky to get in with her in that capacity), and group coaching, and so she has created an online course! Enrollment opens on August 3rd, and you can get on the waitlist + all of the details here if you’re interested. I highly recommend working with her if you’ve been wanting to write a book, or are already in the process πŸ™‚

Have a beautiful weekend!

My new favourite podcast…

And no it’s not mine πŸ‘‡ Lol!

I have been loving “Smartless” with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett.

It’s pure laughter and nothing to do with personal development… or is it? πŸ€”

As I was driving my son to an early morning baseball game the other day, I didn’t have time to get in my usual morning routine.

Or I should rephrase, I wasn’t willing to get up that early to fit it in!

I came across their podcast instead…

And I was reminded of something important.

Laughter is truly the best medicine.

Even though all of this studying of personal development is amazing, let’s not forget that at the end of the day all of it is really about shifting our state.

Shifting the mindset and energy in which we are operating from.

Because what we put out deep down, on an energy/feeling level, is what we will get back always.

And nothing beats in my mind, well maybe a walk-in-nature, the power of laughter.

So this podcast, and laughter in general, is now being included in my morning practice 🀣

Let’s stop being so serious all of the time… geesh…

And if you want another good laugh, tune into our podcast this week, where I an ironic story around watermelon and forgiveness is shared. It’s really part 2 of episode 110, so tune into that one first if you haven’t already!

Have a great weekend!

Cults and Extremists oh my!

Is A Course in Miracles a cult? Hmmm… not in my experience…

Tune into our podcast this week where we dive into this “extreme” topic and share which Netflix show inspired this episode!

We debunk what a cult is and how there really are opportunities for extremists everywhere.

But as always, its all about our intention.

Behind everything we do and everything we create. In business or life.

Is finding your “purpose” all it’s cracked up to be?

There’s a lot of hype these days about finding our life purpose… and quite honestly it can trip us up!

Finding our life purpose sounds magical, but to be honest it can be another ego-trap…

We definitely want to do what we love, but does it mean quitting your day job or even switching gears in your business as you go?

Not necessarily.

There is a ton of pressure to “find” our purpose.

Meaning we’re being taught to look outside of ourselves.

That’s the ego part.

Tune into our podcast this week where we share how to identify if you’re in your ego or not, A Course in Miracles style πŸ™‚

And also become aware of a super interesting way this shows up in in the personal development world, and how it has a bit of an “ick” factor.

Have an amazing weekend! We’re looking forward to celebrating our daughter’s 13th birthday today, July 4th with friends, and our son’s 16th birthday on the 7th! So much fun!

Ever shy away from hard conversations?

There probably isn’t one person who didn’t raise their hand!

This is such a tough one.

Why?

Because deep down we don’t want to feel like a bad person, and risk being shunned from the group.

And we also don’t want anyone else to feel badly either!

Sometimes it’s best to let things go, but sometimes it isn’t…

Particularly not when it’s something that will build resentment and cause a rift.

Plus…

The other person can usually feel something is off anyway!

So we may as well address the elephant 🐘 in the room and have those convo’s πŸ–€

It is truly freeing to not let the fear of these conversations hold you back.

Often it’s where the most healing lies…

We say we want to have success in life, and often it’s our relationships that get overlooked, when really they can provide the greatest opportunity to grow.

Whether it be in a personal or business context.

In our podcast this week we share some special tools that will help you have these harder conversations πŸ’™

Ever feel trapped?

Are you making a prison for yourself without even realizing it?

Do your thoughts keep you in a negative place?

Spinning.

Seeking reassurance.

Never trusting yourself or your decisions.

I see this all too often with business owners.

Always doubting themselves and never quite measuring up.

After studying A Course in Miracles for the last 15-years, I’ve learned the solution to personal imprisonment is forgiveness.

Forgiving ourselves and others.

I remember working with a client once who had plateaued in her business. It wasn’t until we did some deeper belief work, that she realized she needed to forgive her ex-husband.

We did a mindset exercise and she was able to let it go. Not condone his acts, but let go of the tight grip it had around her.

She got out of the mental prison she was keeping herself in.

Business results began to flow.

Quickly.

Because what we put out we get back.

In our podcast this week we discuss how to approach any situation with a miracle-ready mindset, so that you can experience the amazing joy of heart-felt connections, and escape egocentric conflict.

I hope it helps you re-discover a little more peace πŸ’™

And we’re back πŸ’ƒπŸ» New podcast episode!

With new equipment and being professionally produced!

Who ever would have thought this would happen?!

I love A Course in Miracles, and so I thought, “why not start a podcast about it?”

Thankfully Amy was on-board!

And so here we are!

Thank-you universe for always showing me a bigger plan then I ever could have imagined for myself πŸ’«πŸ’›

I’m always asking how to be shown how to give + receive love on a deeper level, and it’s always humbling as to what shows-up.

Whether it’s healing a relationship, or how to serve in my business in a deeper way.

I am grateful for all of it!

Remember to ask for what you really want deep down.

It might seem like “new clients”, but really it might be helping people in an inspired and empowering way that fits for you and your family.

And then pay attention to what ideas show-up!

It wasn’t even on my radar to have our podcast professionally produced.

Until I started listening to another spiritual podcast that I just love.

And then I thought, “why not us?”

And so I reached out.

And because of our extensive history, downloads, and content, they said yes!

This in thanks to you! Anytime you listened in that added a “click”!

Their answer would not have been a yes initially, and that’s why we are shown the exact steps at the exact right time.

Take inspired action on those brainstorms, that is how the universe communicates to you πŸ’›

In stage two kick off our podcast, One Simple Truth, we revisit the basics of the true purpose of A Course in Miracles.

It’s an ongoing journey, but we can all learn how to remove the obstacles preventing us from being miracle-minded πŸ™Œ

We hope you like the new look and feel!
