What if the key to knowing you could move forward was to acknowledge how far you’ve already come? If everything is changeable then why am I still dealing with this? I hear this all too often from folks (and experience it myself from time to time!) We tend to only acknowledge the things in our lives that have changed in major ways.   But we all have those things that linger or that we get snarled on time and time again.  Whether they are born from trauma, limitation or a sense of unfulfillment; these deeper issues can seem hard to shake once and for all. There is a key though that will free you from these sticky points.  And build trust in yourself to take that next step in your journey.  The power of acknowledgement! Tune in to discover: 3-part exercise to acknowledge how far you’ve come  #1 key in trusting yourself for what lies ahead A-ha’s on the tenderest parts of ourselves and the “unchangeables” we live with (and how to have more ease with both) Invitation to change through relaxation, honesty and hope Apply for a 1:1 complimentary sit down with me to discover what we can create together in a coaching session.

What if one bad day was one too many? So often we chalk bad days up to a given in our world.  As if living every day in the energies we enjoy is too much to ask. Most often this isn't a conscious choice – it’s us getting swept up by our environment and the people in it. We match energies, mirror behaviors, adopt other’s thought processes - none of which serve our best interests. Why?  Because we are aware.  Because we care.  And sometimes because we are so considerate of others that swaying to them seems like the nicer choice. But what if you could hold your own in the face of intense energies?  Still be productive, responsive and engaged with others without losing you in the process? Imagine moving through your day not having to give yourself up or fight for yourself either.  Sounds too good to be true?  Well it isn’t!  It’s just a muscle to be built.  Join me on this week’s episode as I walk you through the why’s and the how’s.
What if you’re life was progressing even if you feel like it isn’t? Progress – in life, business and everywhere else – is not what it seems. It’s thought that we catch a wave and ride it to the finish line in one fell swoop. We meet THE person, find THE job, create THE business and off we go with no pause or hiccup in sight.  If only this were true… Actually, creation / progress is more like an ocean.  It ebbs and flows; undulating with waves that carry you and lulls that steep you in stillness.  There are ups and downs and times when there is nothing to do but sit and be. This can lead to frustration and tension as you push ahead trying to re-build momentum.  Wasting your resources and making the journey more difficult.  Or the feeling like you should give up and try something else.  Leaving whatever you have created thus far behind before it ever has a chance to bear fruit. But what if you were progressing even in those ‘down times’?  Could having more awareness of this process lead to more ease and choice along the way? Tune into this week’s podcast to discover: A-ha’s on the creative process in all areas of your life Mindset traps that have you putting in more effort then in needed (and wasting your resources!) Sneaky ways tension, stress and disappointment take us off path Little known dance that helps you progress in all areas of living How to trust the process – and yourself! – in all that you chose
Do you play the glad game or the judgment game? Pollyanna gets a lot of flak. Most call her naïve, annoying or checked-out.  Why? Because she sees possibilities where others see problems. She chooses to spend her time being grateful, not lost in a list of complaints like so many others.  And she isn't afraid of being a bright light when others are choosing to be dull or dark with their view points.  Most in the world play the judgment game.  Spending their day - and most of their energy - proving what they got right and fighting what they got wrong. But not her. She doesn't get lost in their drama or suffer their limitations. She is also a great example of happiness without "positivity." (the flip side of negativity that traps some of us in unexpected ways) Given the state of the world - with all its judgment and polarity - this is a needed exploration right now!    Tune in to discover: The trap of positive vs negative thinking and how to get un-stuck Surprising way to silence your inner critic A-ha’s on hidden judgments and how it may be dampening your happy Deep dive with a powerful tool from Access Consciousness to have more peace and freedom Lessons from Pollyanna on being a bright light even in the face of judgment  Learn more about Lauren's Quiet Your Mind Taster Program for $27 mentioned in the show here: https://laurenpolly.com/quiet-your-mind/
