Is it time for a Mother-Daughter Retreat? When is a Good Time for a Mother-Daughter Retreat

  • Are you feeling distant from one another?
  • Do you want to develop a deeper connection?
  • Is your relationship estranged?

When our daughters become adults it doesn’t necessarily mean we start having an adult relationship with them. If we don’t work through our childhood wounds there may be some resentment on both sides. The mother-daughter retreat is a great opportunity to work through all old wounding and patterns so that you can begin to have a more adult relationship with each other.

If your daughter is in her 20s or 30’s and your relationship still resembles that of when she was a teen, it’s time for retreat.  The retreat helps you both work through any resentments or anger that prevent you from opening your heart in a more loving way. If one of you is being triggered, the trigger alone will shut your heart down and will prevent you from having a more loving relationship.

I get to witness mothers and daughters working through old patterns and come into a healthier place with each other which will look more like an adult relationship then a parent teen relationship. Most parents want a closer relationship with their kids but have a hard time figuring out how to achieve it.

To achieve a closer relationship with each other it takes honesty and vulnerability.  Usually trying to work this out without the right setting can actually do more damage than healing. The environment of the retreat is very safe and nurturing and allows all parties the ability to look at themselves deeply so they can make the shifts to have a healthy relationship. Unfortunately without the right set up you will go into old patterns and end up at the same place with a closed heart.

When we look at why we are triggered and stop acting out of our trigger in anger or shutting down, we begin to understand our behavior and then act out of a higher place in ourselves.  When one party thinks they don’t have anything to work through and come to the retreat they actually realize that they do have a part in how the relationship is. Both parties in any relationship should take ownership for how the relationship looks

Even though I facilitate a lot of mother-daughter retreats, I have done father-son retreats, father daughter retreats and family retreats.

Are We Ever Enough?

Are We Ever Enough?

Are We Ever Enough How do you look at our self worth?

It seems we all come into the world with the belief that we are not good enough; that something is wrong with us.  And we base how we feel about ourselves on what accomplishments we are making out there in the world.  If we don’t have a job that is successful, a nice house, a perfect relationship, and a good body, we feel less than.

What makes us enough?  Are we looking outside of ourselves for our worth?  What I find is that people that look outside of themselves to see if they’re okay usually aren’t, but if we look inside at who we are as a person, we can usually feel good enough.  I say usually because if I’m behaving in a way that isn’t kind or loving, I still may not feel good enough. But if I’m in alignment with who I am and I’m acting in a loving way and looking truly at my essence, I will always feel good enough.

When mentoring or doing retreats I would say that the limiting belief of I’m not good enough, is on everybody’s list.  And usually along with that belief comes the belief of something is wrong with me. Both of these beliefs are important to shift if we want to go out into the world and share our gifts. Because feeling good enough allows us to show up in a more confident way in the world.

When we go into the world feeling good enough, we go out into the world and influence and touch the lives of people in a more positive way. When we are out there making a difference in people’s lives we start to expand our bigness in the world.

When we start from the inside and then go outward, we are coming from a much more authentic and loving place to make a difference in the world.  Instead of trying to be big in the world to feed that part of us that doesn’t feel good enough.

Learning to love ourselves will create a feeling of being good enough and being good enough will allow us to help others feel good enough.

Presence

Presence

PresenceThe power of being present!

When we live in the present moment, we take ourselves out of habitually performing activities and living with intent.

Most of us have a lot of things on her plate every day, which leads us to multitasking quite often.  We may find ourselves moving through our days multitasking with everything we do. It is very hard to be present when we are doing five things at once.

Being present is one of the main practices of Zen Buddhism in which the monks develop the ability to bring their mind to only one thing at a time. Most of the time when we’re doing one thing we are thinking of something totally different or we are doing three different things and thinking of something different.

When we bring the presence of our mind into what we are doing and given our full attention it brings profound meaning into what we are doing. Even if we are doing something as simple as eating her breakfast when we bring our presence of mind into it, we will notice the texture, taste and enjoyment of the meal much more. How many times have you eaten a meal without any presence?

Our minds are normally very active and so are our bodies with things they need to accomplish within the day. This is something we may not ever be able to change except it’s important to bring a healthy balance of intentional activity into the state of our day.

Try being completely present for even an hour and notice how difficult it is. Even making statements about what we are doing brings our mind into the present moment. Simply saying to ourselves, “I am aware that I just woke up.” Or “I am aware that I am eating fresh cooked oats.” Using this tool everyday brings us into that moment and acknowledges what we are doing right then and there.

When we own our own actions instead of being on autopilot we may become aware of how disengaged we are from our own reality we are, when we are not present.

Being present is powerful!

Having Good friends

Having Good friends

How many good friends do you have and what do these friendships look like?

I know for me I have a lot of different types of friendships.  Some of my friends are an active part of my daily lives and know what is going on with me, whether it be good or bad. Then I have other friends that I only get together with every few months and we catch up on what’s is going on with us.

I will say that the friends that I am sharing my daily life with are much deeper relationships.  They are the friends that when I am going through something big, they are right there with me as I am for them. Oddly enough if something serious happens in my life I may even forget to tell the friends not in my daily life because they are on the outskirts of my life.  This isn’t a bad, it’s just the way it is.

I remember a teacher telling me that normally we only have a few core people in our lives that we share really important issues with.  Mainly the ones that process the same way we do or at least have an understanding about how we process.  I personally only have 2 people that really know the depths of my inner soul. My other friends are close in a different way.

Do you have a hard time calling on your friends when you’re in need? I think it’s important to not dilute your process with telling all your friends about everything going on in your life. I first like to bring the issue to myself and see what is going on, then I take it to my inner core friendships with my growth through the process.

I know a couple of people that tell everyone about everything they are going through, even people that know them very well. Usually in the situation they are just venting, not processing.  If you are processing an issue you are having, normally you may only need to share it with a couple of close friends. I also find that after I process it, I’m only sharing my growth around the situation, not the situation as much.

We have to be careful because the ego loves to talks about sticky situations over and over until nauseum.  The ego has to blame others and make them out to be the bad guys.  So be careful who you are sharing with and how you are sharing.

It’s important to cultivate a good friendship with yourself first, then others!

Self Esteem issue in Adults

Self Esteem issue in Adults

Self Esteem issue in AdultsIs it hard to develop self-esteem as an adult?

Most people think self-esteem issues only show up in teens. If self-esteem isn’t developed as a teen it will follow you into your adult years.  I know many adults suffering with really low self-esteem matters.

Our relationship with our self is our primary relationship.  No one else in the world knows exactly what we are going through and experiencing everything in our life, but us.

So, why is it that we are so hard on our self when we are going through tough times? Why can’t we have compassion for our self? The obvious answer is the inner critic/ego voice. This part of our self keeps us from developing a strong sense of self, by its constant criticism and lack of acceptance.

To combat this ego voice, we first have to be a ware of what it is saying and then let it know that it is not speaking the truth. Then we have to reinforce the good qualities in us daily. I teach how to get to know your ego/lower mind so it isn’t running your life in my mentoring course and retreats.

The second part of this equation that is so important is giving our self, constant positive feed back daily. If you had a child and wanted that child to feel good about them selves, what would you do?

Here are a few tips:

  • Write 5 things you like about yourself daily.
  • Look in the mirror every morning and say “You are amazing and I love you so much.”
  • Every time you feel sad, upset, or angry, imagine you are holding our inner child and being with the feelings.

Feeling empowered makes us feel good about our selves. The key thing to do is to show up for your self everyday in a positive way.  Keep the inner critic/ego at bay and let it know that you aren’t going to listen.

If you are interested in learning more about your self and how your ego is ruining your life, let’s talk!

4-Week One-on-One Course to Clearing Obstacles

4-Week One-on-One Course to Clearing Obstacles

 

Do you want to clear obstacles so you can live a more passionate and purposeful life?

Looking back can you determine what impediments were holding you back? What areas in your life were you stuck and having problems? If you can identify the issues, then you will be able to see the obstacles and figure out what areas need to be healed to remove the blockages

A few ideas on being able to see your areas of obstacles is first to slow down, so you can see the triggers as they are happening, instead of days later. Your triggers will give you the insight into where you are blocked. If you are on autopilot and moving really fast, it will be impossible to catch the trigger and therefore see your obstructions.

If you can’t see them you will not be able to clear them and do your healing. Unhealed areas in you create the obstacles. So slowing down so you can see them is critical. Another point is to keep things simple. This process isn’t difficult on paper although it may be tough to practice.

I teach my Sedona Soul Retrieval Method in my mentoring program that is simple and effective and will help you overcome any obstacles in your way to creating happiness. One of the biggest tools with this method is surrendering to what life is. Simply realizing that life is showing up in an exact way that is perfect for your healing, if you can catch it.

I am offering a 4-Week One-on-One Mentoring Course that will help you identify the obstacles in your life that are keeping you stuck in old patterns and not allowing you to move forward.

Expressive Relationships

Expressive Relationships

The power of having expressive relationships! Expressive Relationships

How important is it to express our selves and be heard in our relationships? How many relationships do you have in your life where you feel the freedom to express yourself without judgments? I know in my life I feel so honored to have a handful of relationships where I know I can talk about the things that are important to me and have someone witness my words without judging or trying to fix me.

I reserve my most intimate self for those people in my life and I also know how rare they are. We all long to be heard, understood, accepted and loved and vulnerable communication allows this. It also helps to have friends that process in a similar way to you, so that when you do take your issues to them they don’t create drama out of them, they help you see things more clearly so you can process them. This way you can continue to grow instead of getting wrapped up in the projections of your issues.

If your friends are triggered by your experiences they will not be able to hold space for you and hear you. They will normally try to fix it because they are having difficulty sitting with their own trigger so they can’t really show up for you. This is why it is so important to hold your expressions for those processing through their own issues so they don’t project them on to you.

We may only have one or two people in our lives that are capable of holding space for us without letting their own stuff come in. But, quite frankly that’s all we need. If we take what we are processing out to too many people, it gets very deluded and will be more difficult for us to move through it. I usually sit with myself first and figure out what is going on and then I may run it by one of my friends that I know will get it. She may be able to have more insight or just be a witness to my process; both are extremely important!

If you are looking for someone to process with and help you move through your issues, check out my retreats and mentoring. The individual intensive, the couples retreat, or the mother-daughter retreat, you will learn about yourself and how to clean up your past so you can move through this life with love and passion.

 

A Powerful Retreat

A Powerful Retreat

Are you looking for a powerful retreat? A Powerful Retreat

Allowing ourselves the time to heal is always a powerful way process life situations and one of the greatest ways is through a personal retreat. Whether it is with your partner, you mother or daughter or simple by yourself, setting an intention to grow spirituality and heal is potent.

It is very important to choice a retreat that is perfect for you because while you’re in the healing process you don’t want to be creating any conflict. You have to sink into your intuition while interviewing your potential facilitator to see if you resonate with them.

For myself I realized a while back that group settings don’t work for me I enjoy a one-on-one experience. It allowed me to open up more and go deeper. This is one of the main reasons why I do one-on-one retreats and not group settings. I want to be able to have the person in the retreat be able to go as deep as possible. The depth of their retreat of course will also depend on what stage of development they are in.

It is so important to honor this stage and be patient with yourself and realize that everything is part of the process of healing. Just knowing that a retreat is an intense time where important soul-searching takes place. Most retreat experiences will push you to go deep inside of yourself, and sometimes this can feel uncomfortable, so if you’re looking for pure vacation, make sure you pick a rejuvenating retreat, not an intensive.

Once you have committed to a retreat that you resonate with its important to put your trust in the retreat process so you can make space for the necessary work you have to do, easier making it for your process to unfold. The transformations that my clients have had in their retreats have been very powerful.

If you are looking for a transformational retreat, check out my retreats and mentoring. The individual intensive, the couples retreat, or the mother-daughter retreat, you will learn about yourself and how to clean up your past so you can move through this life with love and passion.

The Peace Within

The Peace Within

Creating the peace within us and creating a peaceful world. The Peace Within

The only way to truly have peace inside of us is to go within. The biggest question is how do we find inner peace when the outside world seems to be in a bit of chaos. Most people would agree that if the world were more peaceful place it would be easier for us to be at peace. The problem is we have no control over what’s going on outside of us. So if we don’t want to be ruled by what’s happening on the outside we have to learn how to bring peace within.

To be able to bring peace to the world each one of us has to do our part in bringing peace to ourselves. If we are not happy with ourselves we are probably not going to be happy with what’s going on outside of us. If we are in constant conflict inside of ourselves then this is what we will manifest in the world. If we are fighting with our friends and families, it will be hard to find peace in the world.

It is only through our struggles that we have the opportunity to move through these obstacles to the light. These obstacles show us where our deficiencies are that keep us from peace. So utilizing these experiences instead of resisting them will help us find the peace inside of us that we so desire. When we are able to transform our internal struggles to a more compassionate, kind place within, we will be able to have more compassion and kindness for others. This in itself creates a world of peace.

If each of us process our own inner work, thereby having more compassion and love for ourselves, we would go out into the world differently. The only way to peace and happiness is through transforming our own wounding and struggles.

Making Conscious Decisions

Making Conscious Decisions

Do you make conscious decisions? Making Conscious Decisions

How do you make your decisions? Do you automatically assume it’s a good idea because a lot of other people are making the same choice? Just because others are doing something doesn’t mean it’s right for you. We have all made one or two decisions based on the populous and realized that it wasn’t a good idea for us.

There are always many options available. We just have to take the time to explore each and every one of them to see which one fits us.  Not taking the time needed to make the right decision could be because of pressure from family, friends or society.

It is our responsibility to guide the course of our terrain and not drift along with the populous.  It is tougher to go against the masses making our own path. If we want to be the creators of our lives, we have to make decisions that our heart wants and knows to be true. But to know what our hearts desires we have to relax, sink in and listen to want we want instead of what someone else is saying to do.

I think this is really tough for kids when they are growing up because the parent’s opinions are usually pretty forceful and the parents can have a way of presenting it that says it’s the truth. When we get older we will have to decipher what our truth is and start going against others beliefs.

Making conscious decisions can only come when we are in touch with who we are authentically. This is why doing your inner child work and growing up that inner child is critical, otherwise we will make our decisions from a place of the wounded child not from the adult. The more we know ourselves, the better able we are to make decisions that are right for us.

How well do you know yourself? Do you trust the decisions you are making?
