While you don't have to literally climb mountains (unless you want to!), learning to find and use your voice can have the same exhilarating and empowering effect of reaching the summit of a mountain. But this, is an inner mountain. A mountain that has been in your way and holding you back from expressing your real voice. Your real thoughts. Your real emotions. Your real opinions. It's been holding you back from living your real life.
Find it. Claim it. Speak it.
My niche, my specialty, what ignites me, what has me leap out of bed in the morning (well, maybe not exactly leap out) ... is helping women find their true, female, grounded, empowered voice and the healing around that. I know that it can feel so difficult, scary, or even impossible to speak up, fully and honestly.
Do you find it difficult to :
share your opinions and ideas
ask for help
tell someone how you feel
tell someone what you need
Because you're afraid that you will :
hurt their feelings
be rejected and voted off the island
be judged by others
be shut out, stonewalled, left out, not be allowed to play in the sandbox with others and end up all alone
So it's easier or your default to :
not feel heard or be misunderstood
quietly seethe being tired of being a doormat
or loudly exclaim that you're tired of being a doormat but nothing really changes
feel small and insignificant
feel anxious, confused, overwhelmed
feel anger, rage, betrayed or resentful
feel scared to express yourself
give to others, with little or nothing left, at the expense of your Self
The Real You. Yes, all of it.
When you find and use your voice, you feel valuable and important enough to :
speak up - your feelings, your needs, your truth, your dreams, your desires, you name it
advocate for your Self
create and enjoy your life more
live from a grounded, centered and peaceful place within
feel successful in life - work and/or personal
live with healthy boundaries
build and have stronger, more connected relationships
live from an empowered, authentic Self
Are you protecting yourself from Being and Becoming your Self?
Our life vitality lies within our Self. It's a big, bright, beautiful, unique fire that over time can get dimmed down or even so small that it's barely a flicker. Difficult life experiences and our adaptations to them can impact how we feel and how we show up in the world.
We will explore :
where you lost your power and connection to your Self
how parts of you - like the people-pleaser, inner critic, inner judger, perfectionist, good girl, agreeable one, caretaker, high achiever, etc. (recognize any of these?) - may not be so helpful any more
what you do to cope - shop, drink, shop online, cleaning frenzy or let the mess continue to pile up, social media scrolling, compare yourself to others, feel crappy, numb out, shop and drink some more
0r maybe nag, get angry, be passive-aggressive, gossip, try to control everything, act needy and anxiously cling to others or treat them like hell has frozen over
your current life situation
your unhelpful, known and hidden, limiting beliefs
Then clear the way and steer you in the direction of where you want to be :
identify your goals, vision, dreams
discover what your inner parts are really trying to tell you
learn tools and resources
create loving boundaries
to advocate for your Self
say no to over-commitment, people-pleasing, and other self-destructive modes
say yes to daily habits, rituals, and other ways to nourish and fill your Self first
to speak your truth and be able to ask for what you want and need
Are you ready to fan that inner flame and create the transformation from Quiet Betty to On-Fire Wonder Woman and Master of Your Inner Zen? No offense, Betty.
So, what do you say? Let's pull that darn duct tape off your mouth, shall we?
When you release yourself and allow within to have a voice ... you will be able to move mountains. When you are connected to your Self, referencing inside rather than outside, everything becomes possible. You, yes you, are worth investing in.
If you're ready, Betty ...
If you're ready to include yourself fully in your life. Find, claim, and speak your voice. I look forward to hearing it.
A newsletter with inspiration and other good stuff every few months.
Plus, you'll be the first to know about upcoming offerings and early bird discounts.
Find, claim, and speak your voice. You life needs it. The world needs it.
