Gathering with family can be tricky around the Holidays. There are many things that come up for people emotionally around this time, and most of them are not usually expressed. And I share this because we also come with our own “stuff” and sometimes we are not even aware of it, the Victim and the Bitch archetypes can easily get activated. This is why I wanted to give you a quick process that I’ve developed through my years of being in this Empowered Woman journey, that will allow you to stay in a place of love, joy and honoring of . . .
Do you ever feel like you want to run away? You feel completely trapped, drained, frustrated like you want to move forward but you can’t? It’s like something is stopping you in your tracks. And you don’t know what it is, it’s like an invisible wall that doesn’t allow you to move forward. You are tired of being the good girl. The one that’s always responsible, understandable, nice…. You don’t always want to be the conscious one. You just want to give yourself permission to be you, be free, have fun and play. Here’s a little secret… what you are . . .
You are not alone. I know, it might feel that way but do you know why? Because so many women ALSO feel the need to wear this ‘perfection mask.’ They feel an extreme pressure to look like they have it ALL TOGETHER on the outside when inside they feel like a MESS. Tell me, darling, do you feel like… There’s just too much pressure to continually prove yourself If you don’t keep working to exhaustion, everything will fall apart You can’t speak your truth in relationships or set healthy boundaries because of the fear of ending up alone You’re ashamed . . .
Take a deep breath. I know you’re exhausted. You work extremely hard, hustling, grinding, pushing, and forcing your business to grow. And now you’re frustrated because you’ve done EVERYTHING right, hired coaches, taken classes, read hundreds of books, followed all the right strategies, but nothing seems to work. You think, ‘Maybe, if I just work a little harder one day things will change and I’ll finally receive the income and lifestyle of my dreams!’ Darling, it doesn’t work like that. It’s so easy for our Good Girl to get stuck in giving and doing mode. She doesn’t want to miss . . .
I see you hiding. Covering your authentic voice. Keeping your desires inside. Feeling the need to ask for permission, seek approval, and constantly look perfect. I see you not being able to trust and trying to do it all alone. You’ve spent your life giving, and giving, and giving, without asking for anything in return. Meanwhile, you’re.. * Tired of feeling defeated and lost inside while putting the pretty face to the world. * Tired of being angry and doing everything on your own because no one ever shows up for you * Tired of struggling and having to prove . . .
I just came back from Las Vegas after spending a powerful weekend surrounded by amazing women entrepreneurs from all over the world. I just LOVE live events. There’s such a magic that happens when women gather together in person! When we come together we lift each other up and we nourish each other, this is the power of the feminine! And it’s so necessary for all of us, especially the ones who run our business from our computer. I was invited as a speaker and I did a powerful presentation in front of 250 women on the second day of . . .
The other day I was talking to a client of mine who got trapped in what I call the Good Girl syndrome. When we are in this place our desires seem to take forever to manifest and we feel our life is passing us by. This is so unsettling and uncomfortable because we end up doing so much with very little to show for it. We feel frustrated and we are so hard on ourselves thinking that we should be further along already! We are cheap with ourselves, we don’t give ourselves what we need to thrive (self care, support, . . .
Every woman has a Wild Woman story (whether you remember it or not.) Today I’m excited to share a story of a hot tamale Latina from Venezuela, who’s always had a very strong Wild Woman. Ilannet and I known each other for about 11 years, we sing at a choir in Hoboken. One day last November, I felt called to invite Ilannet to my retreat. I really didn’t know much about her personal life and she’s never done any of my programs or received coaching from me, but I had an intuition that this was going to change her life . . .
I posted the following video on my Facebook wall for the world to see. I shared myself fully, without holding back, without needing the approval, my Wild Woman needed to come out and speak truth. As you can see in the many views and comments, this is what happens when we speak truth (and my Wild Woman knew it.) It was SCARY, I’m not going to lie….and that’s why I did it. My intention for this video was to show what really happens behind the scenes when we are being invited to our next level….nobody shows us this. It’s NOT . . .
My dearest client Julie came to visit me at my home in Stowe last week for a Private Day Intensive. She’s been feeling trapped in a relationship of four years where she was craving deep intimacy and truthful connection. She’s a captain for a commercial airline (how badass is that?) She totally rocks. She works with mostly men, at a job that requires her to be in her masculine the majority of the time. And if you meet her, she the sweetest, most feminine woman. Julie has felt disappointed and alone, waking up in the middle of the night feeling . . .
