Power Stance: Radiate Your Worth Starting Now

Did you ever notice how the way you stand can directly impact the way you feel, and the way you act?

Let me tell you about my POWER STANCE.

The key to radical self-confidence is all in the way we stand in our worth. I mean, you can’t realistically expect the people around you to believe something you don’t believe, yourself, right? But babe, when you stand in your power, radiating a message of worth, value and confidence, SO. MUCH. SHIFTS.

We spend so much time checking out, escaping and avoiding. We’re often plugged into everything but us.

Reconnect with your body.

BE in your body.

It’s time to take your power stance.

Seriously, stand up right now. Breathe into your belly and *feel your power.* Allow your shoulders to drop down and angle back. Bring your belly and chest outward as you inhale confidence and exhale doubt.

Enough playing small

Enough hiding. Enough dreaming about who you "could be." Right now, start being the hero of your own story, and take a stand as the powerful woman you really are.

Release the Past: Living the Story that Feels like Home

Release the Past: Living the Story that Feels like Home

Living the Story that feels like Home Life Coach.jpg

Can you imagine if you became the exact version of you that your 20, 25 or even 30 year old self hoped you'd be? I don't know about you, but my younger self would be both in awe and terrified of the woman I've become.

my younger self had the perfect plans

She had just the right plans for me, and she didn't want to surrender her plans: an idea of love, marriage, success and happiness so small compared to what I now have.

Letting go of those plans was hard, but the truth is, I sure as hell don't want my 20 year old self running the stories of my life. Her stories were hopeful, but limited. Her programming drove her to earn love and strive for success, rather than *being* love and embodying success. Her pattern was to look outside herself for the steps, and follow them to a T, rather than source from within. She gave away her peace by looking to other people for her validation. She lived with the fear that she wasn’t enough, and never would be enough. She hid her discontent behind a smile that portrayed her as happy.

I’m willing to let the old me go so I can be reborn into who I'm meant to be.

I’m willing to let go of the programming, shame and stories she was handed and clung to. 

I’m willing to let go of the big dreams that once propelled me forward but no longer align with who I choose to be.

I’m willing to take full responsibility and write the stories my Soul wants to live.

it’s time to release the past

Sister, free yourself from the expectations your younger self agreed to. Your life, your healing, your path to wholeness, your success… it’s all UNFOLDING, new each day. You are not forced to dwell within the chapters of a story that no longer feels like home.

Breaking Free from Toxic Doubt: Affirming Your Own Self-Worth

Breaking Free: Affirming Your Own Self-Worth

Build Your Self Worth (1).png

standing tall

Someone’s inability to love your fullness says more about their capacity to love than it does about your worthiness of being loved. So often we absorb the guilt, shame and blame, wondering if we should become smaller, quieter and “less”.

Even if you could be content in wearing a shell of what other people want you to be, it wouldn’t gain their true love.

Sister, stand tall and firm in the vastness of who you are. Radiate confidence from within. Let go of the need for anyone else to affirm your radiance before *you* own it. Because until your mood, happiness and self-view no longer depend on someone else, you will feel the sting of fear and the sorrow of doubt.

Someone else’s capacity for love says nothing about you, and it cannot ruin your sense of self, when you KNOW who you are. What you’re looking for is (and has always been) within.

It takes courage to embrace and love yourself. Outgrown guards go down, challenging emotions come up and sometimes it’s a messy road to that unshakable inner peace. I can tell you, it is worth the ride to get there.

No amount of improving yourself, reaching your goals or refining your personality can give you the permission you’re looking for. No amount of compliments, likes, followers or approval can satiate the bottomless pit of unworthiness. It HAS to come from within.

Aligned and Alive Podcast: You Can Create a New Story

Aligned and Alive Podcast: You Can Create a New Story

I recently connected with Alli Owen on the Aligned and Alive Podcast. If you’re navigating the inner work of healing, this is for you.

LEAN IN AND LISTEN:

IN THIS EPISODE WE EXPLORE what it means to step into wholeness and come alive. We uncover what I recommend for women seeking out their purpose, and discuss how to have healthy boundaries. I also explore how to pull yourself out of shame spirals in a healthy and effective way.

Some other favorite topics from this episode include…

•    Why I do not view my career as my purpose (and the role I *do* assign to my career)

•    How my career path went from sex therapy, to healing while waitressing, to where I am today

•    Oversharing, and how to honor yourself instead

•    Healthy boundaries in everyday life

•    Shifting from emotional resistance to emotional freedom

The one thing I’ve learned through my journey is that you can change your mind.

What I do believe:

  • Our mind is so powerful, and the stories that we subscribe to shape the reality that we live in.

  • We are all born good, wanting to be love, give love, and receive love.

  • We are here to be human and that being human is enough. We don’t have to try to be anything different or more or transcend.

  • There is so much more mystery than we can know. The more we lean into that mystery and make peace with it, the more liberation we have.

  • You can only ever change yourself. Ever.

“Whenever you shift from “my story is falling apart” to "what story do I want to create?”, that is when the new life begins.

I felt such a connection with Alli during our convo. We also talked about these books that changed my life and business.
