The Power of Acceptance

By Awareness, experiences, Healing, Love, mindshift, Personal Growth, Self Care No Comments

I hosted a call on zoom last Saturday which was meant to be an informational call about our new coaching program: Project Me First. I had planned to open the call by sharing a short personal story of how I came to understand that all change begins within, and why the inner work we guide people through in the Project Me First program is important. It was an epic FAIL. At least that’s what my MIND told me. I ended…

The Power of Presence

By Awareness, Happiness, Personal Growth, Self Care No Comments

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” ― Lao Tzu What is “Presence”?We, here at HMC define presence as being fully aware of what is happening with yourself – and whoever or whatever you are interacting with – in the present moment. Having all of your attention and awareness focused on what is going on in…

The Power of Awareness

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

You’ve probably heard me say a thousand times…“You can’t change what you can’t see”. That’s why all change begins with awareness. Awareness is consciousness and it requires presence. Being fully present expands our awareness and, the more aware you are, the more choice you have – to keep things the same (if you like it) or make a change (if you don’t). It’s actually quite challenging to be fully present in each moment. Our mind is masterful at distracting us…

Yesterday My Fear Immobilized Me

By Awareness, Business Growth, Happiness, Healing, Love, mindshift, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success No Comments

Yesterday, I spent the entire day in bed watching movies and playing games on my iPad. I listened to a whole book in the morning (fiction). I skipped exercise class. I didn’t run my client payments that were due. I told myself. “It’s ok to take today off and rest”. “You work hard”. “Relax and take it easy”. “You deserve this!”, as I massaged the growing tension and pain in my right hip and lower back. This morning, I sat…

The ONE Thing That Changes EVERYTHING!

By Awareness, Business Growth, Happiness, mindshift, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success No Comments

Happy New Year! As we stand at the beginning of another year, it is tempting to get swept up in the narrative of “New Year. New You!” And all the changes you are going to “Make 2020 your best year yet!”. Truth be told, it can get overwhelming really fast when you start to try to make big changes or change too many things at once. As someone who has transformed my own life and reinvented myself many times I…

Savoring It All

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

I’ve spent the last 2 weeks slowing down. Coming down off the high of yet another successful transformational event. Facilitating people finding their voices, releasing old limiting beliefs and stepping into new possibilities for themselves. Inviting them to choose from love vs fear and desire vs obligation. I came to Jamaica to visit with family and sink my energetic roots deep into the country of my birth. I realized many moons ago this is necessary for me to do at…

The Freedom Tools – EFT

By mindshift, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success No Comments

I love tapping! (Emotional Freedom Technique) it is one of the ‘freedom tools’ I use and teach to my clients. Here’s an example of why I love it. A few months ago, I’d been feeling increasingly frustrated at my lack of action to complete the book I’ve been writing. I was out of integrity with my commitment to myself to complete it and I was having a field day judging myself for that! Ugh! A little context might be helpful……

Falling In Love With Yourself

By Awareness, Love, Personal Growth, Self Care No Comments

My new book is entitled “P.A.I.N. – An Invitation to Self Love”. It contains much of the wisdom, knowledge and understanding that I’ve gained through many decades of working with people in physical and emotional pain and, the journey of healing my own. What I’ve learned is that every painful experience of our life is an opportunity. To heal, understand, grow, connect. To shift in some way, our relationship with ourselves. That physical pain? An opportunity to Pay. Attention. Inside….

54 Ideas for Ways to Rejuvenate and Renew Yourself

By Self Care No Comments

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” ~ Sharon Salzberg, New York Times Best Selling Author In my coaching practice it is common for people to think they should do certain things to practice self-care, such as prayer, meditation, yoga or journaling. All of these are excellent practices to be sure. The reality is that what restores us is as individual as our thumbprints. What you do to restore yourself is strictly…
