The Things That Piss You Off (the gift of triggers)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

My cell phone rings. It’s my husband. “Your Moms flight has been cancelled. We’re on our way back home”. My reaction is not joy at having more time with my 87+ year old Mom. On the contrary, I’m pissed! I was really looking forward to her leaving. I love my Mom, but for no obvious reason, during the last week of her visit, her very presence had been triggering me. [trig·ger (trĭg′ər) A device used to release or activate a…

Finally! The Baby’s Here!

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

If you’ve been following my journey over the last 8 months or so, you’ll know that I was journeying though what I called “The Void”. I surrendered fully to my Souls journey, letting go of much of what I was doing and how I was doing them and creating space for what was wanting to be birthed next through me. It’s has been a journey that has required: Developing greater levels of courage and trust – in myself and the…

The Greatest Gifts

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

Monday was a ‘doozie’ 🙁 I woke up feeling anxious. So I listened to a guided meditation called “fear clear”. Then I picked up a book I’m currently enjoying: “The Book of Knowing and Worth” by Paul Selig. It didn’t take long before the voices in my head started reminding me that it was Monday and I “should” get up and “get to work”. Traditionally, Mondays are the day I work ‘on’ my business (marketing, planning) , not ‘in’ it…

The Power of Language: Finding The “Right” Way To Talk About What You Do

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

The effective and powerful use of language is an art. The words we use have the power to heal or to harm. One word, one sentence – said with a certain emphasis – can create a sonic boom in someone’s awareness. It can attract or repel. It can open you up or shut you down. It can make the sale or kill it. How many times do we get caught up in trying to say things the “right” way? How many…

What’s [Self] Love Got To Do With it? [Success]

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I spent the first part of my life trying to be anything but myself. I am an empath. That is, I have the ability to powerfully feel other people’s feelings (particularly when they are trying not to feel them themselves). I have an acute sensitivity to, and awareness of, energy – and emotions are energy. I am also clairaudient and clairsentient. Clairaudience (clear hearing) is one of the four metaphysical senses, the others being clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairsentient (clear sensing),…

The Gift of Imperfection

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I often say “Business is just another path of Soul growth”. This is because, in my own journey to building 3 successful businesses and having a life I love to wake up to everyday, I have discovered it’s more about who you become in the process. It’s about being who you need to BE. So you can do what you need to DO. And have what you want to HAVE. More than anything, it’s a journey of self acceptance. Learning to love…

When “Bad” Things Happen To “Good” People

By | Personal Growth, Self Care | 2 Comments

It’s 3:30 am and I am in the midst of final packing and preparations to go to the Be The Change Event in Orlando. I had written my post on Sunday but was inspired to send it as an email that day. At the time I hesitated, thinking “then I’ll have to come up with another one”. (Lol. The scarcity mindset still rears its head at times) Immediately I heard “there is no lack here Helen. You always have plenty…

A Different Perspective

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth | No Comments

I’m walking down the aisle, trying to balance the bag on my shoulder so it doesn’t bang anyone in the head as I struggle to navigate the small suitcase on wheels along the narrow path to my seat on the plane. I feel harried and agitated by the time I locate my aisle seat, 21c. Ugh! There’s a rather large man in the middle seat, taking up part of mine. I smile politely as I reach over and pull down the arm…

The Power Of A Good “Rant”

By | Personal Growth, Self Care | No Comments

Often times we get stuck in a negative situation because we avoid ranting and raving and expressing our outrage. There are many things that condition us to avoid expressing or honoring our extreme feelings of anger and rage. – You may have have created pain and suffering for yourself or others in the past when you expressed your anger and hurt. – Or you may have experienced being on the receiving end of someone else’s rage and it felt intimidating…

Practicing What You Preach

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care | 3 Comments

Last week I had a lot of opportunities to ‘practice what I preach’. In the past I would have said something like “wow! I had such a sh**ty week!” (This is what we coaches call a reframe) 🙂 I’ll give you a couple of examples: I was buying something in Miami airport and my credit card was declined. I know that had to be a mistake, so I said “impossible! Run it again”. (It was declined again) 🙂 I felt…
