Embracing Motherhood:
Your secret weapon!

Dear Friends,

Our Vision Board workshop and mini-retreat last month powerfully blended Coaching, Yoga, and Art in a stunning studio by the ocean in Half Moon Bay. Talk about feeling inspired to create an amazing 2012! My heart always opens in a deeper way when I witness women love and support one another. Read more below to find out (or be reminded) about the secret weapon you already have, and can access immediately that will guide you to a fulfilling year.

Whatever your stage of motherhood, I hope you feel inspired and supported to live more fully and joyfully. My mission is to bring you simple, practical ideas that you can use right now to usher in more energy, time, and move beyond balance to vibrance.

I welcome your feedback. Please let me know what will help me help you make the most of your adventure.

A Matter of Perspective

On a sunny Saturday afternoon in Half Moon Bay, I sat among 25 women, each on their own yoga mat, each patiently waiting with their eyes closed. Each of them was about to embark on an inner journey and, as the leader of this mini-retreat known as a Vision Board Workshop, I had the privilege of being their guide. Guided visualization is one of my favorite exercises, but it can be tricky in a large group because there is the natural tendency for some to worry if they're "doing it right" or "like everyone else." I try to reassure everyone that wherever their spirit takes them is exactly the journey they were meant to take. It is not a competition and there is no common path. The objective is to be still and to breathe. That alone can be a monumental and transformative event for a mom who is normally in perpetual motion thinking of what has to be done next and for whom. Yet this simple exercise takes all of 10 minutes and can have a profound effect on the other 525,590 minutes of your year.

A Vision Board workshop focuses on seeing from the heart, rather than the head, about forgetting the way things are and envisioning the way you'd like them to be. That "other" life can be realized, but the first step is identifying it. The second step is meeting the person who inhabits that ideal life. This is your higher self, the you who has infinite wisdom and unconditional love. Participants get to spend time in conversation with this Higher Self, posing questions such as, “What is the most important thing for me to focus on in the coming year?” Trust me, the answer will come readily. The challenge is to complete the circle and take the necessary action to, in this case, shift priorities and make that important thing the focus of the coming year.

One visualization is not likely to get it done, and while another workshop can be helpful, it's not necessary. Once you've visualized your desired existence and listened to your Higher Self's directions to reaching it, you can do it again on your own anytime you can spare 5-10 minutes. Just understand that we all have many voices in our heads, and not all of them are supportive. We all have an Inner Mean Girl, too, and she is out to sabotage our dreams. Your Higher Self’s voice is recognizable because it is inspiring and energizing. And the more you listen, the easier it is for Her voice to drown out all the others.

Into Action

Take 5 to 10 minutes to sit in silence. Once you feel calm, relaxed and present ask yourself the following question. “What is the most important thing for me to focus on in the coming year?” Listen for the first thing that comes into your mind. The challenging thing is now putting that into action!

Known for my enthusiasm, spiritual touch, and practical strategies, I have spent the last 12 years challenging and inspiring women to define and manifest their ideal vision of life balance and fulfillment—often to remarkable results. Through compelling, inspired actions, each individual client’s success grows from the inside out, leading to deep, lasting change. And as each woman regains a sense of control in her life, the guilt and stresses of motherhood fade away and she steps into her own vibrant light.
