Let Your Best Self Guide You

Ideal self angel soul guide you best self

Yesterday I coached a client who was feeling great. She had recently completed a big project that helped someone in need and was quite energized by it. The little blips in life that could have upset her in the past just floated off her back. She felt energetic, strong, and proud of all she had done.

I shared with her that she was experiencing being grounded in her Best Self. 

She agreed.

We talked about what brought her home to herself and brainstormed ideas for keeping the momentum going.

We talked about ways to anchor this feeling of being the best version of herself so she could re-connect with it in the future.

We talked about not wasting her time on worry that could disturb her peace and distract her from her ideal self.

And, we talked about adding a powerful question to her daily life: 

What would my Best Self do?

Sometimes when I am coaching others, I am speaking to myself at the same time. And, I think that was the case yesterday.

Because this morning while journaling and planning my day, the question – What would my Best Self do? – came to mind.

It made everything crystal clear and my day was planned in about 30 seconds. It made it easy to set intentions and commit to what I wanted to do and how I wanted to feel when this day ends.

This question was a shortcut to my soul. It bypassed the thoughts and feelings that could have kept me stuck in indecision or waiting for motivation. My plans for the day feel easy to accomplish and I am looking forward to doing them. I won’t be sidetracked by unnecessary questions or moods. I am ready. I am committed. And, this is going to be a great day.

So, I’m wondering, what does your Best Self want you to know? How does she want you to live your day, resolve an issue, make a decision, or navigate thoughts and feelings that come up?

I suggest you ask her. She is there for you anytime you want. Listening to her leads to becoming her, and when that happens you will feel on top of the world!

If you would like support connecting with and being guided by your Best Self. I would love to talk to you about how we can work together to make that happen. It all starts with a free consultation. You can contact me here.

How You Use These Two Little Words Can Make or Break You

There are times when I hear myself or my clients or my friends say things like: I am confused. I am tired. I am sick. I am sad. I am overwhelmed. I bet you hear those words come out of your own mouth too.

Well, they simply aren’t true!

You may FEEL tired or sick or sad or whatever is going on at the time, but it is not who you are.

When you continuously reinforce those self-limiting labels by saying them over and over again, you program yourself into believing they are true.

So, use the words “I am” very carefully. They may be small, but carry incredible power.

And, if you want to know who you really are:

Sit in a quiet place with pen and paper and start writing, “I am …”  Fill in the blank with whatever pops into your head. Keep writing until there is nothing left and you have reached the deepest truth. What most people find is that the first answers tend to be negative or superficial and the last connect with the more powerful spiritual truth of who you really are.

This exercise can be extremely grounding and also works well as a meditation where you simply say the words instead of writing them down.

I am. You are.

We are not tired or overwhelmed. We are wise. We are beautiful. We are powerful. We are love.

And, that is the truth!

Living as a Peaceful Warrior
