My business helps you with:
My business empowers individuals to be authentic through creativity coaching, Reiki, self-care, social media, volunteerism, and yoga.
My biggest challenge is:
surrendering to the flow of my creative process as I write my next two books. My ego wants to control the process. I learn this lesson in a different way each time I write a book.
I make things different each day by:
listening to people, affirming their highest and greatest good, and supporting their spiritual, health, and creative practice. I also make a difference by volunteering as a yoga teacher, Reiki Master practitioner, mentor to younger women and girls, worship assistant at All Souls Unitarian Church, and social media strategist.
I have lots of ideas about:
how to inspire and encourage people to take better care of themselves.
My advice is:
Take seven deep breaths each hour during your work day. Allow yourself to step away from your desk or work space/site for a moment. If you can’t step away, close your eyes for a moment. Sit or stand in the silence of each breath to clear your mind. This pause will bring you back to the present moment. It will give you the gift of your inner self. It will also create space for your intuition, ideas, inspirations, infinite possibilities, and insights. What a great place to return to for replenishment, renewal, and rebirth! If you have more time, ask yourself what you need to be, know, say, and/or do to affirm your highest and greatest good. Write your thoughts down if you are called to. Return to them throughout your day or week. Note how you are responding. If it helps, write down your insights. This process will help you discover more of your authentic self.
