My Granny's 'Little Voice'

Apr 06, 2018

When I was little, my Granny and Grandpa lived on an acreage in Ontario they called Green Haven. We used to drive across Canada to visit them there in the summer.

During one of those visits, I remember hearing about how they had been robbed. Someone had broken into their home and stolen many of their valuables, but not my Granny's expensive jewelry. 

She explained that she had heard her little voice tell her to hide it and she did. The robbers didn't find it and so she kept what was most precious to her.

There was no further explanation of the little voice, but the idea stuck with me, mainly because I thought I didn't have one.

It wasn't until my 30s that I learned about intuition as a concept. Still, I didn't believe I was intuitive because I didn't "see" or "hear" any kind of guidance.

Then I went to a hypnotherapist who told me that there were 3 kinds of intuition:

  • clairaudio (hearing things)
  • clairvoyant (seeing things)
  • clairsentient (feeling or knowing things)

You would never guess this about me...

Mar 30, 2018

People who know me now would never guess it, but I was really serious for most of my life.

School was serious business.

Competing in sports and dance…serious business.

Teaching and coaching… serious business.

Being a mom… really serious business.

You get the idea.

I was really hard on myself (sound familiar?). If something didn’t go perfectly, I perceived it as a failure. Life wasn’t a bowl of cherries, that’s for sure.

Then I read a book called The Art of Possibility.

A new concept was introduced in those pages: Rule #6.

Rule #6 meant “Don’t take yourself so blankety-blank seriously.”

There were no other rules. No #5 or #7. Just #6.

I liked the idea of this new rule. I didn’t quite know what to do with it, but it sounded appealing.

A few years later, I attended two personal development courses called Enlightened Warrior and Wizard. Something amazing happened at those camps.

We did exercises where people looked...

My Battle with Body Image

Mar 23, 2018

Growing up as a dancer gave me a multitude of experiences.One of them was a poor body image.

I spent a lot of time disliking my reflection in the mirror. I constantly compared my body to those of the other girls in my class. They were all so skinny and I was not.

 A friend once told me that her mom said I was “pleasantly plump”. I disregarded the pleasantly and focused on the plump.

When I was in grade 9, I experimented with how little fat I could eat. In grade 10, I experimented with how little I could eat period. It felt powerful to see my weight drop on the scale.

I also added a lot of physical activity to my life. I played on the volleyball and field hockey teams, I continued to dance and I joined the track team. I rode my bike or rollerbladed to school. In the evenings, I did calisthenics and step aerobics.

You would think that with all that effort and focus, I would be pleased with my reflection.

Nope. It was never good enough. My body may have been really...

The Key To Boosting Your Confidence

Mar 02, 2018

Have you ever felt unappreciated?

Do you remember a time when you just wished someone would notice all the effort you put in?

Do you give a lot of time and energy to others because you're trying to prove something?

If you would have asked me those questions a few years ago, the answer would have been yes and yes and yes.

I used to long for someone to tell me I was doing a great job.

I used to pine for compliments.

The older version of me went out of her way to impress people by going above and beyond, every single time.

It was exhausting.

Then I learned a really important lesson. (and I'm going to share it with you right now!)

If you want acknowledgment from others, you must give it to yourself first.

Paradigm shift, right?  Or maybe you knew that already.

Either way, we can always use a reminder.

Once I began acknowledging myself, I filled up the emptiness I didn't even know I had. 

It was like there were holes in me and I kept reaching out, trying to find pieces that...
