Conquering The Inner Critic

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

My heart is pounding. My mouth is dry. My breath is shallow. I can hardly focus on what the other people in the circle are saying because my mind is racing. “What should I say?”… “Oh God! That person just said what I was going to say!”… “Crap! Now I have to come up with something else”… I’m trying to pay attention to what’s being said by the people going before me while figuring out what I’m going to say,…

The Power of Un-Learning

By Personal Growth, Self Care No Comments

I just led another amazing group of women through my ‘shift into your million dollar zone’ workshop last Saturday. We had so much fun, no one wanted to leave! Many of them expressed having had some anxiety coming into the workshop as they did not know what to expect. In the end, everyone left lighter, more energized and more courageous than before, with tools under their belt to manage their thoughts and emotions and keep them moving forward through life’s…

The Power of Applying the SHIFT Principles

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

In a recent session, one of my clients related the following story as we were celebrating the changes she is making in her life: “I was having a really bad morning. I felt horribly depressed. I didn’t know why. It felt like there was a dark grey cloud over my head. I couldn’t think straight. All I could do was cry. My husband was very concerned. Trying to cheer me up, He suggested I go to his parents house and…

The Power Of An Ally

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

A client sent me a message very late one night. “I need to reschedule our appointment for tomorrow morning. I have a job interview I need to prepare for. It’s my dream job and I’m really nervous about it”. I responded that if she was nervous perhaps it would be good to meet and help her shift into a more confident, powerful place before the interview. She had a ‘light bulb moment’ and agreed. It was a divine opportunity. When…

A Shift Begins With Awareness

By Personal Growth, Self Care No Comments

I noticed for the last few days I’ve been feeling a little harried and miserable. This morning, as I emerged from the fog of sleep my first awareness was a nagging, grumbling feeling in the center of my chest. A heaviness of discontent. I tune in and give it my undivided attention, curious as to what’s going on. I realize I have not had my quiet time. My time to simply be. Things have been moving so fast. I’ve been…

Falling Off The Wagon!

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

Have you ever noticed how hard you have to work just to take some time off? Lol! I just got back from a weeks vacation. (This was major progress because last summer we only did a “Daycation” because I hadn’t planned ahead). I’m really celebrating my growth because I actually rested and relaxed and didn’t do so many activities that I would need a vacation to get over the vacation! (Can you relate?) lol I was so energized when I…

The Power Of Self-Care

By Uncategorized No Comments

What is self care? It is caring for yourself deeply and deliberately. It is taking care of yourself by making choices and decisions that honor and reflect the true nature of your soul. It’s about recognizing – and meeting – your own needs. It’s about being conscious and conscientious in speaking your truth and making choices from a place of love and compassion instead of guilt and obligation. Unfortunately, It is not a concept that has been modeled very well,…

The Social Media Dilemma

By Personal Growth No Comments

[rant warning] I’m so tired of hearing about how social media leads to social comparisons and makes people depressed (because people only post themselves at their best, never at their worst, which skews our view of them and their reality.) I say so $&@!-ing what!!! You always have a CHOICE. If you compare yourself to someone else and find yourself lacking, you can be depressed and hopeless … OR …you can be inspired! (I think there is way too much…

Are You All In?

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

What does that question mean to you? To me it means: Am I playing full out? Am I invested 100%? (in whatever I am choosing to put my time, energy and money into) I recently realized I have not always been “All in”. I have spent the majority of my life operating at a fraction of my true potential – for all kinds of reasons. Mostly because I didn’t love and value myself enough, cared too much about what other…

How To Be Unstoppable

By Business Growth, Personal Growth No Comments

Recently, I was working with a copywriter to redo the copy on my website and we were working on my personal story for my “About Helen” page. In telling the different stories from different stages of my life journey, I had an incredible realization: I have always been unstoppable! The principles that I teach my clients that help them to stand unapologetically and unambiguously in their power and their truth, are exactly the tools and principles that I learned in…
