When I was in the planning stages of launching a monthly newsletter, I felt excited and ready to share my voice with all of you, my colleagues, clients, mentors, friends and family!
If you’ve ever attempted to put yourself, your heart or your mission in life “out there” for the world to see, then you know it can be a little, ahem… scary at times. There are so many stories that can fill your headspace around how you will be received or perceived by others.
What kept me from sending a newsletter, for years actually, was fear and outright intimidation by an old story in my mind… you know the ones,
“You’re not good enough!”
“Who do you think you are?!”
“No one will like you!”
Have you ever heard those story lines in your own life (in your mind)?
I know, I know – if you’re thinking a therapist is supposed to have it all figured out, well… I’m human too! And frankly, we all have some version of an inner narrator (critic) or old script that can cause us to hold back out of fear.
Just like you, I have had doubts and unhelpful thoughts. But most importantly, what if I had kept those old stories as my paralyzing truth?
I wouldn’t be living WHO I am and HOW I actually want to! By owning my truth and releasing outdated false beliefs, I have set myself free.
So let’s tap into imagination just for a minute. I want you to picture a powerful storyteller surrounded by eager listeners, young and old. They gather round and just can’t wait to hear the latest story…
The storyteller begins with a new tale and within seconds, everyone is hooked, minds entranced and fully immersed. The listeners are mesmerized by the storyteller. Even after story time has ended, they can’t shake the power of the story they heard.
Wow, powerful stuff, huh?!
The power of your past stories and experiences has the same kind of effect on your brain and that storyteller lives in a part of your mind.
Old beliefs, painful memories and “shoulds” get lodged in your mind (whether you like it or not). These outdated stories (let’s call them subconscious mind traps), limit your full self-expression in your life and with yourself.
I don’t want you to live in old, limiting stories any more!
My work and unique methods UPDATE your brain (and the internal storyteller) so you can live with ease, joy and confidence to launch a new endeavor, say what you need to say, or be who you want to be.
Let’s create new stories for your life, shall we? The stories that feel good and full of excitement!
When we extinguish the power of those old limiting stories, we make room for you to feel more empowered, less fearful and fully engaged in life.
IT’S TIME TO FINISH THE STORY.
AND WRITE A NEW ONE!
My intention with sharing my thoughts with a larger audience has always been to provide real, soul-inspired, essence-igniting love, guidance and empowerment with you, my dear community.
So here I am, a complete and growthful cycle later – vulnerable, quieting my own inner-critic – declaring to myself and you that none of us have to be stuck in painful or limiting stories!
