Respect creates Sacred Space

Posted on

When we show more respect for ourselves it is reflected back to us in the way people treat us. When we show more respect to others, we gain trust and it promotes a safe environment. When we feel respected and safe, we will experience more happiness, peace and balance in our lives.

When we show respect for all living things, we have advanced to a level of understanding that can only bring us joy.

Are you experiencing “Sacred Space” physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually?

How do you handle bullying?

Is it easier to just walk a way and tell everyone else what you wanted to say to them, or tell them in the moment then walk away?

A proven formula for confronting bullying without confrontation:

  1. State what you noticed them doing to you.
  2. Let them know how it makes you feel.
  3. Ask them why they are doing it.

In this way you are approaching the bully with concern instead of anger and you will be more likely to have a better outcome.

Anger is an expression of fear and will only create resistance.

Concern is a form of compassion and will help you be able to find resolution much faster.

Resistance or Resolution?

Victim or Victor?

Life Coach Training Exercise ~ Event Response Outcome

Posted on

Enjoy this exercise from the “Life Coach and Soul Retrieval Specialist Certification.”

This exercise helps us understand why we keep experiencing the events we don’t want. It also shows us how to redirect our actions and responses to get the outcome we do want.

Preparation: Have your journal ready to take notes.

One Minute Meditation: Take a moment to relax, take a few deep breaths and center yourself.

Begin the Session: Begin by looking at the old response…

Think of an event in your life that keeps happening that makes you feel uncomfortable. Explain this event and describe what keeps happening that makes you feel uncomfortable. This could be something that you really want to change but feel like you have no idea how.

Event: Think of a person, place, situation or thing that makes you feel uncomfortable.

Response: Now ask yourself how you previously reacted or responded to the event. How could you have responded to the event differently?

Outcome: What was the outcome or result of the way you previously responded to the event?

Now let’s look at the new response…

New Response: How you will respond to the event now?

Remember, if you don’t like the outcome you previously got, then you have to change the way you respond to the event. If you change your response, you have to get a different outcome.

Desired Outcome: What do you expect the new outcome to be with your new response? What would you like the outcome to be? How could you respond to the event differently?

“If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got.” -W. Clement Stone.

Focus the session: Take a moment to visualize the new outcome.

Action Plan: What one thing are you willing to commit to? When will you do it? Why will you do it?

Hawks Message for October 2018

Posted on

Thought I’d pull a card that focused on October. And of course it would be the hawk. Choose your priorities! Focus and eliminate all distractions.

Once you decide on something to give your passionate attention to, the right action will become immediately apparent.

You have everything you need to get started.

As you recognize distractions, set strong personal boundaries to protect your energy and keep your focus. Most people allow distractions to stop them from living a life of passion. There are so many distractions all around us at all times, it is up to us how we will respond to them.

You have a unique gift and service you can offer the world… and the world is waiting for you to share it!

Take a moment now to write down all the things you’ve been wanting to do. Then narrow it down to your top three. As you look at your top three, you may see how they related. Now, of the three, choose one that you can begin to give your full attention to and stay focused on that with undivided attention and passion.

Please feel free to share your number one priority!

Time to enjoy the fruits of your efforts.

The Story of Two Dogs

Posted on

You may have heard about the “Battle Between two Wolves” story, but have you heard about the story of “Two Dogs”?

There is a story they tell of two dogs, both walk into the same room at separate times. One comes out happy and wagging his tail while the other comes out angry and growling. A woman watching this goes into the room to see what could possibly make one dog so happy and the other so mad. To her surprise she finds a room full of mirrors. The Happy dog saw a thousand happy dogs looking back at him and this mad him very happy while the angry dog saw only angry dogs growling back at him.

What we see in the world around us is only a reflection of who we are.

The Truth is Inside You! Look Within…

Posted on

According to an ancient legend, there was a time when ordinary people had all the access to the knowledge of the gods. Yet, even with this access, time and again they ignored this wisdom. One day the gods grew tired of so freely giving this unused gift to the people that they decided to hide this precious wisdom where only the most committed of seekers would discover it. They believed that if people had to work to find this wisdom, they would use it more carefully. One of the gods suggested they bury it deep within the earth. “No,” the other said, “too many people could easily dig down and find it.” Then another one of the gods suggested, “Let’s put it in the deepest ocean,” but that idea was also rejected. They knew that people would one day learn to dive and thus would find it too easily. One of the gods then suggested hiding it on the highest mountaintop, but it was quickly agreed that people could climb mountains. Finally, one of the wisest gods suggested hiding it deep inside the people themselves. They’ll never think to look there. And so it came to be.

Life coaching is based on the idea that we hold within us, all the answers, wisdom and knowledge that we need to live a healthy balanced life.

ANTS Transforming Automatic Negative Thoughts

Posted on

The ANTS exercise can help us see what negative thoughts we may have. These thoughts can stop us or block us from getting what we want. Transform the negative thoughts into positive thoughts.

Automatic negative thoughts (ANTS) are the thoughts a person might have right after a great idea. These thoughts can limit us and hold us back from taking action. For example: “I would like to get a better job, but I don’t have the education.” Or, “I would like to start my own business, and I have all of these great ideas, but I don’t have enough money.” Instead of focusing on how you are going to make it happen, focus on what you can do right now.

What we say is a direct response to what we are thinking. Our words are very important also. For example: “don’t forget” vs. “remember.” One might say, “I can’t forget to take out the trash.” What your subconscious mind is hearing is can’t and forget and trash. Studies show that we are more likely to remember something if we use positive words. Instead, we could say, “I need to remember to take out the trash.” Another example that I see all too often. Standing in line at the grocery store and the cashier says, “How are you?” Often I hear people respond with, “I’m not bad.” So in this way, they are responding with a negative thought. Instead, we could say, “I’m doing fine” or “I’m great.” Also, the original question was how you were not how you were not.

Our thoughts, feelings, and actions have a lot to do with what we attract into our lives and create what we experience. The average human has over 60,000 thoughts per day. Although we can’t possibly monitor all of them, we can at least be more conscious of them. Fortunately, we have the ability to change our thought pattern. This does not happen overnight, this is something that needs nurturing and will take time, but eventually, with effort and consistency, you can get there.

Preparation: Have your journal ready to take notes.

One Minute Meditation: Take a moment to relax, take a few deep breaths and center yourself.

Begin the Exercise: Draw a line down the center of the page. On the top left write, “ANTS,” and on the right side write, “POSITIVE THOUGHT.”

Begin by looking at the ANTS column. Note any and all negative thoughts you might have about yourself, a situation, a person, or anything.

Powerful questions:

What negative thoughts have you had recently?

What makes you think you can’t do that?

What are some negative thoughts that you may have about yourself?

What are some negative thoughts you have had about someone else recently?

What are some negative thoughts you have had about a situation recently?

Keep writing until you can’t think of anymore.

Focus and transform: Now transform them…

Look at the Positive Thought column and transform the negative thoughts into positive thoughts. Most times it is the opposite of the negative thought. How do these new thoughts make you feel?

For example, in the ANTS column, you may have written, “I have no energy.” The positive thought would be, “I have an abundant amount of energy.” If this seems unbelievable to you, you could write, “I want more energy, ” or, “I will find a way to start having more energy.”

Speaking in positive terms:

Now that you have the tools to consciously change your thoughts, are you willing to speak more in positive terms? Are you willing to speak more about what you do want not what you don’t want? Are you willing to speak more about what you can do, and less about what you can’t do?

Create an action plan: What action are you willing to take? How will you begin to remove the ANTS in your life? Write it down. Take action!

Why do you do what you do?

Posted on

“People don’t buy what you do, they buy “why” you do it. ” -Simon Senek


The Golden Rule. Focus your attention on “why” you do what you do. Talk about “why” you do what you do. Start with “why.”

WHY=PURPOSE
What is your cause? What do you believe? This is your purpose! The reason you do what you do. It feeds my soul when I see people heal from trauma, physical and emotional pain, disease, illness. I love to see empowered people who feel good and live with purpose and passion.

HOW=THE PROCESS
Specific action taken to realize the “why.” What makes you different from others? Drumming, coaching, guided imagery, interpreting the medicine cards, smudging, prayer, calling on animal spirit guides.

WHAT=THE RESULT
What do you do? Product you sell or service you offer. I teach Spiritual Healing, Life Coaching, Soul Retrieval, Shamanic Journeying.

Sell the problem you solve, not the product!
