We can’t possibly meet ALL of our own needs.
We are ALL interconnected.
Exploring our Blind Spots
If we want to be in a long term relationship but keep finding ourselves with someone who isn’t available, it’s likely there’s something unconscious going on.
The more we can be curious, instead of judgmental, the more we can look at our blind spots to increase self-awareness about this dynamic and make subsequent changes.
Don't Let Your Hurt Child Run Your Adult Life
How we show up for our hurt child makes all the difference in how much we enjoy our adult life.
Never Too Late
While it’s never too late to learn and hopefully we’re doing so throughout our lives, learning some lessons earlier can help us navigate life better.
Mental Health Awareness
Living with a mental illness is challenging, even if you’re able to function well enough to maintain a job and personal life.
Thankfully, there are many treatments and supports available. #mentalhealthawareness
Who Am I?
That part of us that we call “self” is our ego.
Our ‘ego’ is that part that makes conscious adult decisions, and essentially mediates between the more impulsive child-like part of ourselves (id) and the moralistic parent-like part (superego).
Body Awareness is Freeing
Returning to your body is the ultimate resource for finding freedom within.
When you’re activated, coming back to your body is a way of grounding yourself.
Our Mindset Matters
Radical change comes with a radical shift in our mindset.
Success requires us to take ourselves off autopilot and reflect on the messages we’re telling ourselves that are NOT helpful.
Internal Battles Are Painful
When we don’t protect ourselves and each other enough during this pandemic we can experience inner conflict.
One side of us wants freedom and connection while the other side desires safety and care.
Out with the Old & In with the New
There are many coping styles that we use depending on our creativity, resources and early modeling.
It’s crucial that we don’t judge them.
Trauma Response to Witnessing Events
Witnessing the insurrectionary riot on the US Capitol is traumatic.
Vicarious trauma is when our nervous system responds to seeing or hearing about a traumatic event as if it’s happening to us directly.
Stop Judging Yourself
We have tons of thoughts every minute but when these thoughts are consistently critical and judgmental of ourselves (i.e. how we’ve failed yet again) then it restricts our ability to live more fully and enjoy our lives. An intense and relentless Inner Critic can lead to social anxiety, perfectionism, rigidity and depression.
