Pt. 2 The 4 Core Wounds & Why You Feel Like and Imposter

There are 4 core wounds that are a common thread among women that cause them to under estimate and under value themselves in both the workplace and at home.  Societal conditioning and messaging perpetuates the wounding and actually sets women and girls up to feel inadequate.  For women to fully own their innate value these…

Is the Subjugation of Women God’s Fault?

I read an interesting article yesterday about how Molly Ringwald watched “The Breakfast Club” with ten-year old daughter to discover it to be surprisingly troubling. She realized now that we are in the #metoo era how the John Hughs movie perpetuates the subjugation of women.  In one scene Judd Nelson’s character looks up Molly Ringwald’s…

How the Absence of our Divine Mother Has Robbed Us

Studies have shown, as expressed in the book “The Confidence Code” by Katty Kay & Claire Shipman that when asked, men tend to over-estimate their abilities and women under-estimate theirs.  Yet when comparing actual results men and women perform equally. Why do you suppose this is? Consider for a moment the conditioning we experience as…

Mantra Monday

I am grateful!
For the air I breathe
For I receive it's abundance
For my children hollering...
for I have ears to hear them.
For my thoughts...
For my ability to think.
I am grateful for this moment...
the air,
my children,
my thoughts,
Time.
Yes, I am grateful...
As every experience is for me.  
And I am blessed. 

 

Mantra Monday July 24, 2017

I am willing to matter...
Among all of my responsibilities
I am willing to matter.
As I breathe and bring peace to my mind
I know that I have the resources to meet my needs.
As I am willing to matter 
I model self-worth to those around me
Even when it's inconvenient
I am willing to matter.  
My needs matter.
My desires matter.
My emotions matter.
My words matter.
My thoughts matter.
I matter.

 

Mantra Monday 6/26/17

Yaaay!  It's Mantra Monday.
A powerful tool that I have used for years to help me be the empowered woman and mother that I desire to be are mantras.  Mantra is a Sanskrit word meaning thinking tool.
It's a little like an affirmation.  Both are more powerful when coupled with emotion.
So every Monday I will send you a mantra for the week.  Of course you can tweak them to better suit you...but use it every day this week...and beyond if you feel intuitively moved to.
Mantras help me to stay present in the moment and focus on my true intentions of my day and ultimately my life.
Here is your Mantra for this week:
I AM Enough
I strongly encourage you not to overlook this mantra because you've heard it or seen it or even if it doesn't seem to apply to you.
Let's explore what it means for you to be enough...right now.
Without changing a thing.
I AM Enough...
without losing a pound
without buying new clothes
without having a certain brand bag
without making a certain amount of money
even compared to the most amazing woman I know.
I Am Enough
As a mother
A daughter
A wife
A girlfriend
A friend
A Woman
A Human
I AM Enough
Hugs,
Michelle

Mantra Monday June 5

I am inspired to support you in as many ways as I can.  You truly have THE most important joy and the biggest job in the world as you are raising our next generation.  You MUST be living at your peak potential as often as possible...not that you have to be perfect by any means.  It's in your imperfection that you are a beautiful model of real life to your children.

But that's why I want to share with you everything and anything I possibly can to support you in being the greatest version of YOU.

So Mondays are become Mantra Mondays!

A powerful tool that I have used for years to help me be the empowered woman and mother that I desire to be are mantras.  Mantra is a Sanskrit word meaning thinking tool.

It's a little like an affirmation.  Both are more powerful when coupled with emotion.

So every Monday I will send you a mantra for the week.  Of course you can tweak them to better suit you...but use it every day this week...and beyond if you feel intuitively moved to.

Mantras help me to stay present in the moment and focus on my true intentions of my day and ultimately my life.

Here is your Mantra for this week:

I stay present to my emotions

This is important for you,  because the busier you are the less present you are...especially to your emotions.  It's when you disconnect from your emotions that you lose yourself.  If you lose yourself, you become disconnected from your children and your partner...and all of your relationships.  You can't lose yourself AND be in healthy relationships.  It's impossible.

So this week.  Post your mantra in many places or even put it on an alarm on your phone and when you think it in your mind or read it.  Take a single deep breath and notice how you are feeling.  That's it.  Just begin to notice and be present to your feelings.

I look forward to hearing how it goes for you.
