"We don’t live a life, we live a pattern."
As I heard Dr. Shefali Tsbary speak this wisdom, my entire system resonated with the impact of this simple yet profound truth.
We spend our life living out patterns of unconscious behaviour passed down to us from each generation.
These patterns create discord within us and limit us from being able to do the only thing we are meant to do - live as our authentic self.
And this true self is constantly being and becoming, changing and evolving.
It’s a continuous, sacred process of self-discovery.
If we remain stuck in our default mode, or those unconscious patterns that we learned as children from our parents, we will deny ourselves the opportunity to fulfil our purpose.
To simply, be you.
In this video, I walk you through the steps of how to breakthrough generational patterns and tap into generational wisdom.
Fellow Conscious Parenting Coach, Shalini, and I have a profound and insightful conscious conversation around the power of mystery and gratitude.
We immediately dive deep into deconstructing a quote from Dr. Shefali Tsbary "Your children are birthed from the same mystery that birthed the Universe itself."
We discuss the profound shift that occurs when you stop asking "why is this happening to me? to "why is this happening for me?"
We share our current journey of connecting to the body and how opening the heart is the key to tapping into genuine gratitude.
In this episode, my beautiful soul sister, Rachel Duffy, and I get granular about the difference between happiness and joy. How one is externally focused and thus sets us up for disappointment and disempowerment; whereas the other is a more growth oriented experience and related to our state of BEING. We also relate this back to parenting and entrepreneurship - as we always do. This episode is a mind shifter, if we ever saw mind shifting!
We Must Repeatedly Die A Spiritual (Egoic) Death In Order To Fully Live
The old, limited version of you is constantly falling away...dying...in order to make space for the new, continuously evolving version of your true self. Are you taking the time to acknowledge the constant death of the false you? The parts of you that no longer serve you and must be consciously and compassionately let go of? Gratitude and compassion for all that the false self showed you is key to integrating sustainable transformation.
I use InnerGuidance tools to teach my clients how to honor their journey in order to fully embrace the miracle of who and what they truly are.
Here is an example of my own personal process:
In https://www.soulpathparenting.com/episodes/51-its-the-parts-that-make-us-whole-awakening-through-innerguidance, Soul Path Parenting co-hosts Lauren Coglianese Keck and Amy Breeze Cooper invited me to explore the transformational process of InnerGuidance with them. In this episode, I answer the question 𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐘𝐎𝐍𝐄 wants to know: "𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘐𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘎𝘶𝘪𝘥𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦?"
I also gave a brief description of the 4 key InnerGuidance principles and the three phases or parts to an InnerGuidance experience.
This always leads the 𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 and the 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐲 to ask: "𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘢 𝘴𝘪𝘨𝘯𝘢𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘐𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘎𝘶𝘪𝘥𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘴𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘔𝘌?"
There is no right or wrong way to discover yourself, but we knew you would appreciate an example of what an 𝐈𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐆𝐮𝐢𝐝𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐆𝐮𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐉𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐞𝐲 can look like online.
In this 𝐁𝐎𝐍𝐔𝐒 episode you can witness Amy's courageous and vulnerable share of her Guided Journey experience of the deeper...
What InnerGuidance makes possible, e.g. to feel safe to embrace our birthright to live our version of an authentic, free and aligned life. Would that be OK with you?!
The 4 principles of InnerGuidance for reconditioning your inner world in order to create an aligned outer world, signified by: Hi, No, Yes, Why?
The 3 parts of InnerGuidance: Self-Reflection, the Guided Journey, and the Somatic Experience.
In the second half of this conversation, Lauren and Amy share their insightful and in-depth deconstruction of their own InnerGuidance Guided Journey with me. This was there first time experiencing a signature InnerGuidance offering! They fully embraced a profound -- and, at first, perhaps counterintuitive -- realization that knowing and consciously...
Anger is not a “bad” emotion
Anger is an emotion that I have easily accessed compared to others. It was not a feeling that I was conditioned to believe that I had to suppress. As a young adult, I remember feeling anger in my body and not understanding where it was coming from - only that I felt it deeply within me. I found ways to leverage anger to my advantage - mostly by pushing myself physically harder when I was training for something or mentally harder when I was trying to achieve something.
Growing up, anger was one emotion that was role modelled very differently by each of my parents. When my father felt angry (frustrated) he would fully feel it and explode however he needed to (it’s how I learned my repertoire of swear words!). When the emotion was out of his system, he could carry on with life. It was quick. It was full-on. Then it was gone. We learned to get out of the way and give him the space he needed in those...
Old Story Fire Ceremony
A very powerful and transformational signature InnerGuidance tool is the Old Story Fire Ceremony - a truth telling process for greater healing and freedom.
Whether it is during a retreat or an individual session, I will lead participants through an InnerGuidance guided journey that invites in a deep exploration of a story that is limiting and hindering them. Afterwards, I prompt them as they write their lack story - in order to fully reveal it, to clear it, to let it be honored one last time and to let it go - so that it no longer has power over them as they chose their new reality.
In a safe space, lovingly called the “no karma” zone, they are invited to express anything and everything. They have permission to blame whoever is responsible for co-creating and contributing to the story AND they are encouraged to take responsibility for how they co-created the story. The empowerment is in the ability to be honest about the...
