You probably already know which foods to start eating to improve your health now.
You probably already know which foods to reduce to improve your health now.
You probably also already know how much exercise you need to improve your health now.
But, if you aren’t doing those things, do you know why?
In the last two years as a health coach I have asked myself this question over and over. Why do some people have great results while others struggle to embrace their breakthroughs? Why, at different points in my life, is it easy for me to eat well, exercise, and be in my ideal physical form, and at others it’s all I can do to make sure I eat some fruits and veggies each day?
What I believe it comes down to are not the conscious changes we make in our lives, but the shifts and transformations that take place in the subconscious – in the very way we view ourselves, our lives, and our place in the world. For the last six months I have been studying, experimenting, taking classes, and researching to figure out how to make those subconscious changes that really are the key to achieving something other than the most-predictable future, a future that actually looks different from the present!
Looking deep into my own patterns and thoughts, and paying attention to the language and patterns of my clients, these are some of the most common beliefs that seem to be sabotaging all well-intentioned efforts to have a breakthrough in health, energy, and personal vitality:
1. Life will be better when I am healthy and beautiful.
2. This is how my body is made and there is nothing I can do about it.
3. I have to control my body otherwise it will control me.
4. I’ve tried everything and nothing works for me.
5. It is selfish to prioritize my own health.
6. I don’t have the time to be healthy.
7. Once I have my ideal body/life/schedule/etc, then I can love and accept it.
What do all of these have in common?
They come from a place of inherent powerlessness to create, direct and shape our own lives.
In my experience, women are especially susceptible to taking on this mindset. There are many different subtle varieties of these beliefs – some around finances or relationships, other whole systems around health, time, the value of our work, or even how other people see and respect us.
What I’ve noticed is that while any one of these belief systems is in place it can sabotage efforts to actively and creatively transform life. What I’ve also noticed is that when one area is uncovered and made conscious, then others start to shift as well.
And you know what else, this actually gets me kind of mad! Like, I get so frustrated when I realize the ways in which brilliant, beautiful, creative, talented, passionate people like you and me get trapped inside thoughts and beliefs that are just plain false. I truly believe we are all like mines full of beautiful treasures and unique gifts only we can offer the world and that we all deserve to unlock those mines and bring those gems to the light.
So I’ve put together a program that takes the 6-month healthy coaching program to a deeper level and actively works to reclaim your personal power to create your own life.
The process is simple. The process is profound. If you are ready to get out of your own way, the process will work.
So, some final questions -
Ask yourself – how is my current state of being serving me?
Then ask, what is it costing me to stay this way?
When you realize the costs are outweighing the benefits I would be honored to accompany you to actively create what you truly want in your life.
