💥 I'm giving away 5 x free coaching calls 💥

Have you ever decided to do something like eat more healthy, start exercising, put yourself in a better financial position, only to realise you haven't stuck to it? 
Often we consciously know what we need to do, but it's our subconscious mind that controls so much of our thoughts and behaviour

A big part of what I do is work with the subconscious mind.

This is the part of the mind that's responsible for 95% of our behaviours as it stores trauma, negative emotions associated with past events, limiting beliefs, and thought patterns that keep you stuck. 
When you work on this part of the mind and rewire it for success, you create fast long lasting change. 
My purpose is to help people remove the things holding them back and create new strategies for success 💥

The first 5 people to message me will receive a free coaching call where we can discover what's holding you back and how you can work through it.

If there's one decision you could make today that could completely change the course of your life, this is it 😍

___________________________________________

Common Questions: 
Can I work with you if I'm not in Australia? - Yes we can work together from anywhere in the world. 
If I'm working on my subconscious mind, do I still know what's going on? - You're completely present and aware of what's going on. It's a really simple, easy to follow process 
I have experienced trauma that I would like to overcome. Do I have to discuss/relive my trauma? - No - this is a very non invasive way to work with trauma where you don't need to relive or discuss it

♡ Are you a pleaser? Then you probably were emotionally abandoned (neglect, abuse) in your childhood. Your needs were not seen, understood or met. To survive you abandoned yourself, your boundaries, your emotions and your needs as well. In the hopes to do good, to not be a burden, to earn attention and love by giving it all away.
.
But guess what? You are an adult now and it is time to stop abandoning yourself. You deserve better. Way better. You're not a doormat, you're not an energy - or love supplier. It is time to take yourself, your needs, your feelings and emotions, and your longings seriously. It is time to create boundaries and do what is best for you.
.
I know this can be scary and it might trigger feelings of guilt and shame. Take your time to work through them, become aware of the root of your pleasing and your feelings of guilt when you choose you. Take your time to become stronger in showing up for yourself. It won’t happen overnight, but that’s ok. Just keep moving forward. One step at a time. You're worth it ♡

Let’s be fuckin’ grateful! The simple act of showing appreciation or recognising gratitude can go a long way. I encourage clients to write gratitude lists daily, and slowly (but surely) the lists eventually grow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I often take a minute to pause and think about what I’m grateful for. Sometimes it’s as small as having the opportunity to feel healthy today or maybe it’s being grateful for having someone in your life. The more we can allow gratitude and appreciate in, the more and more we can release it to those around you. Give it a go, you’ll be surprised with what comes up for you.

Emotional trauma is the most unrecognized, undiagnoised, and unreported forms of trauma. Car accidents, loss of loved one, loss of job, financial hardships, loss of home, broken relationships(family/friends) divorce, etc.... Most of us can identify with one or more of these situations or something that left us in fear, shame, guilt or blame. We all have done something we felt guilty or ashamed of; aftermath of feeling we are not good enough. We've all experienced some type of rejection, disappointment, or been taken advantage of; leaving us afraid to trust or love again. Fear sets in and paralyzes us in every area of our lives. We will go so far but as soon as something reminds us of the trauma and we retreat, hide, attack and/or sabotage. These feelings are REAL but they are not the truth. We can heal from the pain. I know it feels like you're alone because everyone looks like they have it altogether. No one has it altogether.. Last I checked Jesus went back to heaven.
I want to encourage you, you are not alone. I don't have it altogether so I'm walking with you. As we heal we should help others heal too.
I've learned forgiveness is the key to healing and living a fearless life. It takes faith to forgive and to be forgiven because it's not based on feelings. It's an ongoing decision, feeling will catch up. Child boo, Mine still catching up😲.. It's not easy but it's possible! With God on our side we can do this and live our best lives... Love ya and praying for ya 😘

Hoy trabajamos en el taller de mayo, de Sanación y Desarrollo Personal, recibiendo nuevos participantes, nuestra relación con la pareja. Joan Garriga nos convoca con una buena y una mala noticia: la buena es, que nadie nos puede hacer infeliz; y la mala es, que nadie nos puede hacer feliz. Si el otro no tiene la llave de mi desdicha, tampoco va tener la llave de mi dicha.

So much has happened to me in the last 6 months including a fuzzy memory from anything before surgery and late Fall 2018. Today I finally realized why the trauma is extra heavy. I wondered something and thought, I'll ask Dad. 
Like a bad tv flashback, oh yes, Dad died on Thanksgiving day. I was there, I saw his big blue eyes slowly close as he exhaled and never inhaled again.
It's time to process, just moving forward does not heal. Grief is always there until you acknowledge it. I truly didn't realize I was blocking it with my physical pain until now.

Secrets Kill our Souls from the Inside Out. That whole " what happens in this house, stays in this house", often contain events, acts, and deeds that have wounded our Soul. While we may hide or bury them, SECRETS that contain trauma, abuse or unhealthy acts don't go away because we pretend they never occured. Sometimes HEALING happens as we give VOICE to those issues we would rather hide. You have the COURAGE To HEAL. REVEAL It...so You can HEAL It.

If you listen, the moon will guide you. She is calming yet so very powerful. The push and pull of the tide, the push and pull of the water in your body. The tidal force. The still sleeping will laugh in your face if you say this to them. The awakened know. We feel before we think. Let the moon guide you calmly but strongly. Trust the universe. 👑💜👁💙💚💛🧡❤💫

This needs to become common knowledge. We have to understand the impact of trauma and what we can do that really helps. Love really does heal. It’s just that we get scared and stressed out as caregivers and parents and do things that create more stress when creating calm is what is needed. #parenting #trauma #traumainformed #teacher #education #coach #socialworker #pediatrician #judge #lawenforcement #family #fostercare #adoption #children #loveheals #chooselove www.feartolovebook.com

Worries about work, finance, and family make us anxious many times. When our coping mechanisms are adept, anxiety is tackled well.
.
There are ways to deal with anxiety at the individual level, by living a healthy lifestyle to combat day to stress.
.
However, when anxiety gets out of control, excessive, out of proportion or irrational for an extended period of time, seeking professional support would hugely help to prevent the monster from restricting our lives.

“Letting go” of your past isn’t as easy as it’s played out to be, especially with PTSD. 
My brain can no longer go back to the way it was years ago. The multiple traumatic events I endured over the years has shaped me. 
I’m a fragile flower 🥀

Love this chart by @victoriadonahue that explains the various dysfunctional ways we try to defend ourselves.

Seabreeze to inhale & an absence of mental chatter.

We are the masters of our own universe. Anytime we feel life is carrying a tone of monotony or the impression of being pulled aimlessly around like a tumbleweed it is important to separate from anything & everything we know. It is in silence & solidarity we connect to our higher self & a call to action. We get caught in storms from the projections of others, our thoughts & our environment. Remove the attachment & expectation to better understand that we know nothing. We are not our thoughts. We are all breaking through lifetime strongholds & finding ourselves. Unconciously we have been taught that our image is powerfully important within the framework of society. Our 'image' is created through the ideas of our friends & family etc etc. If we are to believe these ideas created of us are REAL we undoubtedly are undermining our true power; our authentic higher self. One thing we can be sure of is the fear of being our true selves. Many are quick to respond in discourse yet given time to allow resonation, it is logical on the basis that we fear what we do not understand. Lets reach for more. More selflessness, more good deeds, less talking shit, more inner work, more time given, less time worrying. Smile & be happy Eye dare you! What say you Kings & Kweens. Rise up, stay up & be good. Full moon in full effect catch some vibes.

I'm so frustrated at how unreliable the workshop is at giving me a definite time and day when my car will be fixed. Everyday it's extended by another day 😶 such poor customer service.

When things repeatedly happen to you it's hard to not assume that it's just going to keep happening. Also, if you missed the red flags before you can become hyper vigilant to them and start seeing them everywhere and in everyone. People my whole life have treated me shitty and/or ended up abandoning me, including both my parents. Us survivors can struggle greatly with finding balance and finding our tribe after such traumas and abuse. Consistent action is the only way to get through to us. You can tell us repeatedly that you won't hurt us or leave us but we are never going to believe you based on words alone. Only actions can put our hearts at ease, and even then it takes a long time and total consistency. To be honest, I don't even think I'm worth the effort it would take.

This episode features psychiatrist Anna Lembke who shares her immeasurable expertise in psychiatry, dual-diagnosis and chronic pain treatment, with a heavy dose of unmitigated truth-telling. Our dialogue is a thoughtful, no holds barred look at: The toyotaization of medicine; opiate over-prescribing coupled with ineffective chronic pain treatments; addiction and dual-diagnosis treatment; We discuss integrative treatment and the need for psychiatry, psychology and general medicine to embrace it or become irrelevant.  #opioidcrisis #addiction #addictiontreatment #chronicpain #psychiatry #psychology #cannabisuse #mentalhealth #addcitionrecovery #alcoholaddiction #integrativemedicine #integrativepsychology #integrativepsychotherapy #somaticpsychotherapy #somaticexperiencing  #trauma #illnessnarratives #wellness #traumahealing #traumarecovery #medicaltrauma #acupuncture #mindfulness #yogatherapy #AA #NA #nutritionalpsychiatry

"Don't be afraid".
"Ignore your fears".
"Do not be scared".
Bravery does not look like picking and choosing challenges that have no threat to your sense of security, sense of self, and sense of reality.
Bravery does not look like a pretty walk in the park or a romanticized idea that fear is an enemy in defeating your demons.
Bravery looks like sweaty hands, shaky knees, racing thoughts, a pounding heart, and questioning your reality. 
Bravery looks like begging God, your spirit guides, the universe, your support system, and yourself for answers to questions that only exist outside your comfort zone and realm of reality.
Bravery looks dark. It will skin you of your layers, break your walls, make you question your beliefs, values, morals, and logic. It will strip you naked and make you vulnerable, in which you have to face whatever you are fighting.
Bravery looks like paralyzing anxiety and questioning whatever it is you've instilled your security in for so long. Let it be rationalizing toxic behaviors of others, unhealthy coping mechanisms, pretending you're someone you're not for the sake of fitting in. Whatever it is, it has to die. 
Bravery looks like fear. It will swallow you in it. But with no fear, with no anxiety, with no death, there is no room for rebirth or growth.
Be brave. Be naked, vulnerable, scared, and outside your realm of comfort. And do it anyway. Cut those toxic people off. Quit your job. Be the you you've been hiding. Travel. Tell that person you love them. Stand up to people, even if it's your own parents. Speak your truth.

Be brave. You've got what it takes. The time is now.

"Certain watershed memories involve the soul’s need for a larger perspective. Watching the passing scenery through the windshield instead of a single side window, seeing the next horizon from the top of a hill, drinking in the distance visible from a building’s top floor, being stunned into awed silence by summiting a pass – these watershed vistas momentarily satiate the soul’s need to see out."⠀

TRANSFORME SUA RELAÇÃO COM OS SEUS PROBLEMAS!!!!!! Obstáculos e problemas são parte da vida. A verdadeira FELICIDADE não surge quando nos livramos de todos os problemas, mas quando mudamos nossa relação com eles, quando vemos oportunidades de se praticar a paciência, e aprender. É claro que alguns desses problemas devem ser solucionados. A maior parte deles, no entanto, são criados por nós mesmos pela luta para tornar nossa vida diferente do que ela realmente é. A paz interior pode ser alcançada pelo entendimento e aceitação das inevitáveis contradições da vida. A dor e o prazer, o sucesso e o fracasso, alegria e tristeza, nascimento e morte. Os problemas podem nos ensinar a sermos mais fortes, e pacientes. Sugiro, no entanto que você fuja menos dos problemas e se esquive menos, e os aceite mais como parte inevitável, alguns são naturais que não estão em nosso controle, está filosofia da aceitação é a raiz da atitude de se deixar viver pelo fluxo natural das coisas.

⚠️[this is just make-up]⚠️ About one in five women & nearly one in seven men who have ever experienced rape, physical violence, and or stalking by an intimate partner, first experienced some sort of partner violence between 11 and 17 years of age. 1 in 10 high school students have experienced physical violence from a dating partner in the past year. 43% of dating college women report experiencing violent and abusive dating behaviors including physical, sexual, tech, verbal or controlling abuse. 38% of college students say they do not know how to get help for themselves if they were a victim of dating abuse and 58% of college students say they don't know what to do to help someone who is a victim of dating abuse. (The National Domestic Violence Hotline). I wanted to bring to light some statistics because domestic violence and family violence is not always easily recognized. Many victims are ashamed to be in the situation and often blame themselves.
 When I was 16 years old, I had my first boyfriend who, in retrospect, was not mentally stable. He hid it from the public very well, but it was not long until I saw the darker side. I remember us arguing in my car in the driveway of a mutual friend's house. I don't remember what we were arguing about but I remember him strangling me to the point where I started to lose consciousness. Lucky for me, our mutual friend came outside, pulled me out of the car and stopped him from doing any further physical damage. Unfortunately the psychological, emotional, and mental damage had already been done. I wish I could say that was the only time he ever put his hands on me, but it was not. Later I found out that he had been cheating on me with four other girls. I never sought professional help nor did I share that information with anyone for years. Tragically, this relationship set the foundation for even more trauma that I would experience in the following years. 
Abuse may not be obvious and victims may not reach out for help, but it is important to be aware of changes. Support and trust is what they need in order to find their strength.
