Meditate With Me On Insight Timer

I’m officially a teacher on Insight Timer 🤗 I’m honored & excited to create meditations for you. Follow this Insight Timer link to start meditating with me now ❤️⁠

⁠This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. So why, you might be asking, did I wait so long to do it? I waited so long to say yes because I’m a hypocrite 😂⁠

⁠I waited because fear was controlling my decision to move forward & I felt vulnerable. I waited because, “it had to be perfect,” before I put it out into the world. I’m sure you can relate to these feelings, but c’mon 🙄 this is what I do for a living!⁠

⁠So one day I decided to put all of my energy into “walking-the-talk.” I took my own advice & I started working hard on figuring out why this was so challenging for me. ⁠

⁠I’m so glad I did because I learned a lot about myself & became a better coach because of the self-exploration I committed to. It’s easy to give advice, harder to take it, but I knew if I was going to continue to coach I needed to work hard on myself first & that’s exactly what I did.⁠

⁠Self-help & self-exploration is hard! It’s a full-time job that you do in the background while you work a full-time job & juggle being a parent, friend, relative & spouse. It’s work that never stops. If you’re doing it right it’s work you’ll do until the day you die, because we’re growing & shifting & changing all the time. Life will unexpectedly throw things at you & then you’ll change again, which will involve more self-exploration. ⁠

⁠What I learned while processing my fear, vulnerability & desire for perfection was that we are all perfectly flawed & that’s okay. What it does mean though is that we must pay attention to the messages our physical & mental body are sending us because they’re smart, they’re on our team & they want us to succeed. What it means is when this information comes in we need to stop long enough to process it & then come up with actionable solutions to work through them & then do this on repeat for the rest of your life 😂 ⁠

⁠That’s life! The only thing that’s guaranteed is that nothing is guaranteed & change is inevitable. How you react is the ultimate lesson in mindset coaching ✨

My Hope For You

It’s Friday & life’s been a real doozy, for almost everyone I know, so I don’t want to talk about anything heavy today. I don’t want to add to the noise. It’s already too loud, too sad, too stressful, too cluttered. I don’t want to give advice, just for this one day.  ⁠

⁠Just for today, all I have to say is I hope you have a great day. I hope you have a great weekend. I hope whatever your carrying isn’t too heavy. I hope you find some release, even if it’s only from one thing that’s been grinding you down. I hope someone or something makes you smile and brightens up your day. I hope you catch a break. I hope something wonderful happens to you. I hope you get good news. I hope you find some healing from something that’s been bringing you pain. I hope you spend time doing something you love with someone you love and I hope that, even if it’s just for a moment, you’re able to let everything else go.⁠

⁠I hope you’re well, and I care about you, even if I don’t know you – Sending love ❤️⁠

⁠Happy Friday!

Confident & Happy In Your Own Skin!

How comfortable is it for you to be alone with your thoughts?

Confession – I used to think I was just an extremely extroverted human in my younger years. It was rare that I didn’t have plans. I filled every second with something; work, school, friends, insert distraction, insert distraction, insert distraction.

Years later & thousands of dollars in therapy 😂 I realized all I was trying to do was avoid, avoid, avoid. I was avoiding all of my uncomfortable feelings & emotions. It’s sad really. I often wonder how many people are living their lives like this & don’t realize their completely burned out by their own distraction tactics. I know I was & it took some digging, hard work & commitment to figure it out.

Truth -Today I can honestly say that I love hanging out with myself 🤣 and with very little distractions. In fact, I’m more introverted now than ever. I’m 100% comfortable being alone with myself & my thoughts & I owe this to my exceptional therapist, dedication & mindfulness.

More truth – Getting to this point was PAINFUL! It was not pleasant work at all 😩 Rummaging through all those neglected feelings & emotions was HORRIBLE (just trying to set up realistic expectations of the process, haha).

BUT…it was SO worth it! I’m so glad I stuck it out, ugly cried 1 billion times & cared for all those feelings & emotions that deserved my time & attention, because now they’ve been put to rest.

Don’t get me wrong, I am NOT perfect, FAR from it, but now when a sneaky upsetting feeling or emotion pops up I know how to deal with it in real-time & I’m over it in less than 24 hours 🎉

I’m here to ask, to beg you, to dedicate time to healing old wounds, nurturing painful feelings & emotions & making your mental health a priority! The payoff is priceless. Not only will you have an incredible relationship with yourself but all of your relationships will flourish because when you’re happy in your own skin it permeates every aspect of your life.

Do one small thing today, or sometime this week, to help you get closer to nurturing parts of yourself that have been longing for attention. Take care of you so you can be fully present for others ❤️

Meditation & Mindfulness – Tip #1 – Start Small & Keep It Simple

When a new client comes to me and says, “I can’t meditate, I’ve tried and I just can’t do it,” the first thing I ask them is how long they’re trying to meditate for?⁠

⁠Almost every single time the answer is somewhere between 20-30 minutes! This is WAY too long for a beginner meditator and in my opinion, will absolutely set you up for “failure.”⁠

⁠So here’s my best advice, start small & keep it simple!⁠

⁠Use an app like Insight Timer or Headspace. Both of these apps have meditations for beginners. ⁠

⁠Choose a meditation that’s between 2-5 minutes MAX! You can filter this out in these apps, actually, you can tailor the entire meditation directly to your specific needs at that moment. ⁠

⁠For example, in Insight Timer, I can click on the search icon, type in what I’m looking for, we’ll use “beginner” for this example, hit search, choose “audio,” and then I can sort the results by rating, length, female or male voice, background music or none, etc. I believe personalizing your meditation experience like this makes it more enjoyable and easier to digest.⁠

⁠If you’d prefer not to spend time customizing your meditation experience so be it. On Insight Timer you can click on the home icon, choose “guided,” filter by time, and choose a meditation from the drop-down list. Headspace is similar, you’ll choose “meditate” on the home screen, click on the search icon, choose a category, let’s say “beginning meditation” for this example, and choose the first meditation under “start here.”⁠

⁠Once this becomes a simple habit for you consider adding either more time to your meditations or increase the number of times you meditate per week.⁠

⁠This technique has turned all my non-meditators into pro meditators.⁠
