A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Claiming Freedom.

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Claiming Freedom.

I’m a Freedom Guide There, I said it out loud. I help women claim their freedom. Freedom to BE. Freedom to speak their TRUTH. Freedom to transition into a life they LOVE. Freedom to be WARRIORS for themselves. Freedom to live a multi-colored, fantastic and magical life. Freedom to embrace CHANGE.  Freedom to CREATE a COURAGEOUS life! So what’s the funny thing? Back in 2010 I was coaching a Social Media Marketing franchise and I won a coaching session with a lovely woman called Britt Michaelian, who is no longer coaching. Through her process she saw me as the Freedom Coach. I never claimed it. I won’t go into why. It doesn’t matter. All roads lead to Rome! What do I mean by that? I mean that all of our experiences mean something. We might not know what or why at the time. So why claim it NOW? Because I’m ready. But the funny part is how I came back to it. I was on a call for a group I am a member of and the facilitator had us do an exercise that ultimately led us to pick a word or phrase from a ton that we wrote out. And what jumped out for me? You guessed it. Freedom Guide. I laughed out loud and thanked my Guides and the Universe for waking me up to what I am. Freedom is one of my Core Values. Always has been and always will be. Freedom can mean many different things to many different people but for me it means the freedom to be fully me, to speak my truth and...
The Shadow of Needy

The Shadow of Needy

The Shadow of Need It’s time to declare that I am needy. All my life I have attracted needy people in my life because it took me a while to acknowledge that I am needy too. I won’t go into my history because my soul chose this life. It chose the time, date and place of birth and the family I was born into. My soul chose to be born with Capricorn rising and Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, conjunct making me a double Capricorn rising. Capricorn rising are seen as reserved, a little stand offish, competent and diligent. As children they are seen as ‘the responsible one’. And that was me. Oldest child with three younger brothers. Babysitting from a very young age. Always worked HARD from a very young age. Always felt responsible. All my life I have struggled with the other side of this. Fear that I am not enough. Which, is of course, complete BS, we are all enough. This caused me to try to prove that I was so very powerful and strong ALL THE TIME! I put up walls with friendships because I feared that if I dropped the walls and showed vulnerability and neediness that I would be rejected. And I rejected those friendships that I saw as too needy. I fear being seen as weak. I fear that I am not enough. Because of this fear I do weird things like showing up at my networking group without business cards or a clear need to ask the group for. I come across as ‘I am a better than you’. Aloof and distant...

Wholeness

Wholeness. What does that mean for you?   I have been thinking about wholeness lately since a client told me that when they are with me they feel whole.   I was flattered, of course. And I do want to help my clients to a feeling of wholeness. But what I really, really want is for them to feel whole all on their own. If I can help them to that point that’s fabulous. But the real wholeness comes from within. So, I thought I would explore what wholeness means for me.   And here are my thoughts   I feel complete within myself I no longer beat myself up about everything I no longer seek validation from all around me I have made friends with the less shiny bits of my personality and know that it’s perfect to be imperfect I now CHOOSE to be with and love my significant relationships rather than NEED them I do what I love and love what I do I no longer try to be something I’m not I know it’s okay that I like staying home and no longer think I ‘should’ join groups I don’t want to. The ‘shoulds’ - yeah they rarely exist any more. I like spending time with me I no longer hide me And I also accept that I feel all and do all these things only most of the time and that even in my wholeness I am imperfect.   So, again, tell me. What does wholeness mean for...

It’s a good day to have a good day!

I posted a meme on my Louise Edington’s Fabulous and Fearless Facebook page this morning that said “It’s a good day to have a good day!” after a conversation on my Your Cosmic Blueprint page about not sleeping much during full moons. This conversation and the meme got me thinking about choices and pivoting. Let me explain 🙂   There was a stark contrast in the reaction of different people to the lack of sleep that a full moon can bring - and last nights Blue Moon in Aquarius was powerful! Some reacted positively - saying that yes they had not had much sleep but had fabulous ideas and dreams and they would take a nap later or catch up the next night. Others reacted very differently with comments such as ‘full moons exhaust me’ and ‘if I try to nap during a full moon I have anxiety attacks’. Do you get the idea?   There is no doubt that Full moon energy can be very powerful and the nights very light. This often does lead to a couple of sleepless nights. However, the astrology that I practice maintains that we always have free will and choices and therefore, you can CHOOSE to look at the positives in this energy. Lying awake in the middle of the night I had some fabulous flashes of inspiration and I like to lie there visioning the fullness of the moon filling me up with wonderful lunar energy to move forward into the cycle. When I do this I get up tired but energized spiritually and ready to take action on the inspiration...
