I’m available for individual, team, and organizational collaboration.

I discussed this play between intuition and anxiety in my most recent monthly newsletter, which was centered on the unconscious. 🧠

Shaming and blaming yourself isn't productive. Shame stagnates, rather than motivates. ✨

What other people think of you is not under your jurisdiction. 

Is people pleasing a behavior you notice in yourself? ✨

So much of our lives don't make sense until we're able to look back and see the bigger picture. 

In what ways could proximity be altering your current perspective? ✨

Notice who supports your growth - and who doesn't. ✨

Struggle can’t be skipped, cured, or medicated out of us. 

Suffering, like happiness, like contentment, like love, is fleeting. ✨

It reveals everything. And training for the big adversity happens in the ordinary adversity. ✨

Are you consciously choosing? Or choosing by default?

It's an important distinction. ✨

Isn't it amazing how a challenge can feel overwhelming one moment, then completely doable the next, based on your frame of mind? ✨

What practices do you have in place to bring yourself back to a place of calm when turbulent waters hit? 🌿

It's not the feelings or emotions - it's what comes after. I’ve had a complicated relationship with feelings over the decades. This has been my life’s work. 

React? Or respond? There's a difference. βœ¨πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

Do you have an intentional recovery process in place for yourself?

It's essential - don't skip it. ✨

I Got Censored

A week or so ago, I posted an innocuous quote about slander on my Instagram feed. It was quickly labeled as “false information” by “independent fact checkers” and censoredβ€” hidden away because it was apparently so threatening.
