I’ve been back in the states for a few days and have been attempting to put together my thoughts about what I experienced swimming with the dolphins….(see pic at the bottom--yup, that's me!)
There is so much that I experienced on this trip but I thought I’d share with you my biggest take-away from this “live life to the fullest” experience.
To put into words what it’s like to be in the water with wild dolphins swimming around you is almost impossible.
The way that WildQuest operates is that they go out on a catamaran each day looking for wild dolphins...and because they are wild, you don’t know what you will experience.
Wildquest believes we are in their world and interact as visitors.
Like anything in the wild, sometimes you can find them, sometimes you don’t (even if you don’t, you’ll get some great time exploring the underworld through snorkeling)!
We saw dolphins 3 out of the 5...
(I wrote this before I left but in my excitement, forgot to post beforehand!)
Do you have a “bucket-list”?
Years ago I started calling it my “live life to the fullest” list as “bucket list” seems kind of depressing to me.
I love the idea of creating fun, memorable adventures in life so “live life to the fullest” seemed to be more fitting, personally.
AND….I’m getting to cross something off that’s been on my list for years.
May 31-June 5 I am going to be swimming with wild dolphins in the Bahamas!!!
I’m going to a place called Wildquest that I’ve had on my list for YEARS to do but for whatever reason, never pulled the trigger until now….
Since I didn’t owe as much in taxes as I had saved I figured I would treat myself to this experience.
We’ll be out on a catamaran each day for about 7 hours looking for wild dolphins...
I FINALLY got gas!! YAY!
If you saw my last email, I mentioned that I live in Charlotte, NC and we were hit hard by the gas crisis!
I didn’t want to participate in the craziness of being in long lines when I really didn’t need to go anywhere so I just stayed put until things calmed down.
It was only 5 days that I didn’t go anywhere (I live in a city so I did walk places) but it’s funny what happens mentally when you feel stuck.
I’ve been hearing from women who have told me that they have been feeling stuck...in many areas, especially when it comes to their relationship with money.
If things haven’t been working out for you in your attempt to have a good relationship with money, I completely understand.
You see, a few years ago things were like this for me as well.
Thinking that going to Tony Robbins Wealth Mastery and reading books about it was the key to healing this relationship, I dove right into...
Something big has shifted - my focus in my work.
Things had been shifting for a few months now but the big AHA! came about when I was talking with a client that we had just finished working through money blocks and she said:
“I’m feeling confident and stronger. The abundance is not just in money as I thought; I thought it had to be in money but it's in everything around me & it's been an incredible feeling”
The thing is, I was previously working with helping everyone with everything. My focus was once to help people with ANY struggle that came to me.
BUT...what I started to realize was that….
In my last blog post I talked about the 5 different “bodies” we have and how using them for a framework can help you make quick changes when you are struggling (let’s be real, this past year, we’ve each struggled in some way!) so you can go back to your life, business, and relationships with energy and peace.
For a review, they are:
Physical body --this is the one we live in, the skin, bones, and everything else.
Emotional Body--this is the body we FEEL in. It’s the level at which we experience and store many emotions — happy, sad, guilty, or fearful.
Energetic Body-- this is the body of subtle energy flows—think along the lines of meridians and chakras (energy centers).
Mental Body-- this is our mind ~ what you think, believe, value, how you perceive yourself and the world.
Spiritual Body--this is your soul ~ the connection to God, Universe, or whichever higher being that you believe in.
I said I’d share some questions you...
As life continues to shift and change and stress levels are at all time highs for most people I wanted to write this email to share something my clients are finding incredibly helpful in managing their stress.
When we are struggling in life, there is never just “one” thing that is the cause.
It is typically a variety of things but sometimes we don’t know where to start to find the answers.
A while back I read about the 5 Bodies framework (I can’t remember where, otherwise I’d totally give it credit) and have been sharing it with everyone.
This framework has been a game-changer in making it easy for my clients to create change for themselves (I'll share with you how my client Laurie used it to take back control of her life in a minute!)
The basic gist of it is that we have 5 different “bodies.”
We all know about our Physical body (this is the one we live in, the skin, bones, and everything...
It’s the time of year when people are reflecting on the previous year and thinking about what they’d like to accomplish in the following year.
Often usually boiling down to something to do with our body, money, relationships and time…our “goals” or resolutions are something like:
This year I will...
So we set out to figure out HOW to do this. Most articles you read will say if you just...
then you will reach your goal.
But….that doesn’t always happen…and, if it does, there’s often something that feels missing once it’s achieved and people are left feeling disappointed.
For many, the list tends to be similar to the previous years and are scratching their head thinking “I don’t know why I...
