The Power Of Focus

By Awareness, Clarity, experiences, Focus, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success, Uncategorized No Comments

By Matthew Gordon-Martin Focus is a word that I’ve heard constantly since the age of 5. If you are like me and have an inner rebellious spirit, then it is the word that you’ve deviously made your enemy. If not, then its the word you’ve been playing with off and on, maybe as a friend who you engage with whenever it suits you but not a best friend who’s integrated into all aspects of your life. I was taught that focus…

The Power of Clarity

By Awareness, Clarity, experiences, Love, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success No Comments

When life gets blurry, we have to adjust our focus. Clarity is the act of refining your focus in order to determine your next steps and ensure they take you where you want to go. Clarity isn’t necessarily certainty, it’s the complete knowledge of what is in the present. Your intentions for every aspect of your life — from relationships to careers — are more profoundly molded based on just how clear you are with what YOU want! So, how…

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…

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……

The Things We Run From

By Awareness, Business Growth, Happiness, Healing, mindshift, Personal Growth, Power, Success No Comments

Have you ever noticed how much time and money we spend distracting ourselves? The multi-billion dollar “entertainment industry” solely exists to cater to this desire. God forbid we should feel bored, disappointed, confused, angry, sad, afraid, or overwhelmed (which is simply a cluster of unidentified emotions). In the space of ‘doing nothing’ we are confronted with our thoughts and emotions and our unwillingness to be with them. It can be downright scary to sit with or face the aspects ourselves…
