Unlearn Your Limits & Become Limitless

And we’re back! The real OG!

New episode on the pod!

We kick off 2023 with the OG to A course in Miracle to us!

For those of you new to our community, I do a podcast on all things A Course on Miracles with my best friend Amy. We have been friends since grade 10 😳 and what a true honour and pleasure to do this together πŸ’›

It has truly been the best personal development course I have ever taken and is what has led me to really learn how to harness the laws of the universe to manifest and create a life I love.

There are still lots of lessons to be had, but that is covered in the book too.

And so we breakdown the course in a way that is easier to understand, because it is a bit of a beast!

This week we have a special guest on, who is responsible for introducing the course to Amy, and then Amy to me ❀️

Plus Jen is an amazing healer and I did my very first in-person workshop with her way back in the day! When the crowd was mostly my family 🀣

Jen shares some of her most deep and pivotal moments including how she was able to move through grief by applying her foundation with the Course.

From choosing love over suffering, to the importance of doing this work to heal yourself and others, listen in to hear how we will all make our way through this work in our own ways, and yet, we are really all the same.

This course is all about returning to a loving and empowering state, thus allowing ourselves to operate from this place in our lives and businesses.

Plus we have some laughs about perimenopause! Ha! Like what the heck?!

What’s next? siding cleaning?

I walked by this yesterday and it made me remember something…

Did you ever read the Soul of Money by Lynne Twist?

She talks about how her and her husband got completely carried away as they earned more and more money…

With a “keeping up with the Jones” mentality and always wanting more and it never being enough.

They got the cars, the house, and it still wasn’t enough…

As they climbed social ladders next was the second home in the Hamptons…

And it went on an on until she was forced to take a pause and analyze what was happening.

I really don’t believe wanting these things is bad.

But I do believe it’s all about our intention

Why do we want something? Do we want to redo our new kitchen because we want to create a loving space to hang out with our families or maybe we love to spread joy through entertaining?

OR

Is it driven from not enough and never good enough…

Two entirely different mindsets.

One from love and one from lack.

So before we get caught-up with the beautiful new house that now needs gutter and siding cleaning…let’s tune in…why do we want what we want?

And no offense to Clearly Amazing! I’m sure they are amazing! It’s just a reminder that we can get carried away quickly with “shoulds” and “have to’s” and forget to tune into what we really want to create πŸ’«

Speaking of creating…my husband’s “Dad” band was accepted into the Battle of the Bands at a well known venue here in town – think where such bands as the Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga and for my Canadian friends, The Tragically Hip, have all played! And so this is super exciting for them and I’m looking forward to cheering them on!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Our podcast is back baby! Our first episode will drop late Wednesday and I’ll send you a note here Thursday when we’re live! We kick off with a very special guest and the OG of A Course in Miracles πŸ’™

If you were wanting the replay of my latest mini masterclass inside our facebook group for coaches where I share about all things being of service for becoming an attraction magnet”, just to watch and it’s pinned at the top πŸ™‚

Inspired goal setting & dream-making πŸ’–

I hope your 2023 is off to a wonderful start! Our hearts are full as we make our way back to California today, after the last 10 days in Hawaii with family πŸ’•

Last night was one of my absolute favourite days… we did a sunset dinner cruise and the whales were abundant… multiple breaches, tales, jumping, and tale flapping! It was truly incredible.

This photo was captured right after we got off the boat and summarizes exactly how I was feeling… bliss…

One thing I love to do as I start a new year…

Well before I share, let’s first agree to ditch the expectations around new year’s resolutions…

As a business owner, we’re always working on ourselves and gaining new awarenesses, it’s a consistent work-in-progress that involves a lifelong commitment, and doesn’t begin with the calendar year…

BUT it is nice to get clear on what you do want to create and manifest over the coming year… but in a more empowered way…

We let go of the past last week, and this week we are going to step into the future…

This time next year, what do you want to be celebrating?

And more importantly, what type of person do you want to be celebrating?

Because it’s all about who you become in the process…

The shifts in perspective, new awarenesses and GROWTH.

Your results will be a reflection of these internal shifts πŸ™Œ

So have fun dreaming big and writing down all of the details as if we’re a year out and you’ve created them already.

And don’t forgot to focus on how it feels, the visualization that comes with slowing down & handwriting our vision is not to be discounted!

And remember to always say how grateful you are and for who you’ve become in the process.

Happy writing!

~ Much Love, Chris xox

What to let go of before 2023…

A good friend shared this with me the other day and I just love it…

Let’s enter 2023 lighter & brighter πŸ’«

Where we have self-love and self-compassion.

Where we allow ourselves to tune in and do what we love.

Where we allow ourselves to ACCEPT the love & gifts the universe has to offer us.

Accept is my word for this year…. accepting myself, accepting others and accepting the love that’s always hovering right around me that I sometimes forget to receive πŸ’›

Wishing you much love, joy and abundance for 2023! πŸ₯‚

I am grateful to be ringing in the new year in Hawaii with my parents, husband & kids today πŸ’–

Aloha nui,

You already are enough…

It’s not uncommon as we wind down the year for all sorts of feelings around “not enough” to pop-up.

I’m not going to the gym enough.

I didn’t earn enough.

I’m not manifesting enough.

I’m not doing enough.

I’m not a good enough Mom.

Argh…

ALL the ego, trying to get you to take the bait and feel like not a good enough person.

I want to remind you that you ARE enough. Just as you are.

Have a grace and compassion for yourself RIGHT NOW.

There is lots of extra’s going on this time of year, and you are enough and are doing enough ❀️

Cut yourself a break and remember your light is always enough, whatever you do or don’t do πŸ’«

Take that ego!

And for those celebrating Christmas, wishing you a Merry Christmas tomorrow ❀️ And if you are not, wishing you lots of love and peace this time of year πŸ•Š

Much Love,

~ Chris xox

P.S. We’re on a break from the pod until the new year, and will be back with a bang with a special guest! It’s a great time to get caught-up in the meantime πŸ’™

What about active meditation?

My son (who’s 16) told us the other day he likes active meditation…

First, to hear he likes any kind of meditation was exciting!

He lovingly tells me I’m a hippie… in which my response is always “I wish!” I long to be that chill! 🀣

Second, he went on to tell us that an active meditation is when you’re doing something that you are so engaged in that you’re super focused on it. Being present essentially. For him this looks like spearfishing and snowboarding.

I LOVE this concept.

And it’s probably why I love walking so much. Not that I have to be super present or I’ll get pummeled by a wave like if I was surfing… but there’s something about being active in nature for me ❀️

It clears my mind and helps me get grounded.

I have all of my brainstorms walking, and not really when I meditate. Although it does bring me other benefits.

And that’s why I never say you have to do “this or that” when practicing self-care.

It’s whatever it is for YOU. And what makes you calm and connected will be different than other people.

When we operate from that place we are empowered. And an empowered way of being leads to empowered decisions, which leads to empowered results.

“Shoulds” and “have to’s” do not.

So if meditating just isn’t your thing, how about trying this instead? What does an active mediation look like for you?

Have a beautiful weekend! I am looking forward to my parents arriving this coming week for the holidays πŸŽ„

3 tips for happier holidays…

Ahhh the holidays… filled with lots of joy, but also extra stress and sometimes navigating through hard relationships…

It’s okay don’t run for the hills, it can be more enjoyable ❀️

Here are a few tips to help this season:

πŸŽ„ Take extra time for yourself. My husband has been traveling a lot lately – normally I would be enjoying the couch to myself and fully enjoying my favourite shows in the evening πŸ’ƒπŸ» – but it meant extra to do’s for me amongst the extra to do’s that come with the holidays. I reminded myself at the beginning of this past week – I do not have to take the bait into this stress, do extra self-care. And so I went for a beach walk with a friend. And of course felt amazing after and was like what stress?! Ha. It’s been a constant reminder all week and will be for the rest of December, but this is about taking care of our mental health and is a necessity not a luxury.

πŸŽ„ Continue to take time for yourself when you are visiting family or hosting family for the holidays. Carve out some time…a walk-in nature will do wonders. Even if you have the best relationships with family, it’s still important to get in that time for just you.

πŸŽ„ Notice your own triggers. It can be hard when we’ve done a bunch pf personal development work and have grown, and then go back and are around people that are used to the “old” version of us. Sarcasm, poking fun, old patterns and identities, and in some cases down right aggressiveness can be apparent. So how do we deal with that? I’ve found the more you don’t care the more it doesn’t show-up! Like anything right?! Like when you’re not afraid to charge what you’re worth, prospects stop challenging you on money. The more personal development work we do – where we can see our own triggers and where our reactions are coming from – the better. It’s likely some old wound resurfacing. When we truly step into accepting ourselves and others, we can allow more love in. And have a lovely time as a result. But still practice self-care and give yourself a break too πŸ˜‰ This helps us stay grounded and seeing clearly.

I hope these tips help you look forward to a self-cared for holiday!

Much Love,

How a leaky tire led to the best day!

So my tire had been flat for MONTHS! Every week I would fill it up, meaning to contact the dealership to get it fixed or replaced.

But I didn’t… and then I kept coming up against those tire filler machines being our of service everywhere, what the heck?!

I finally reached out to the dealership and was waiting on a quote for a new tire.

Well, the universe finally forced my hand, with the air filler-upper not working at all even when I found a machine that worked!

So instead of just taking it farther away to the dealership, I finally went to the spot in town. I dropped it off, and then walked to the local Starbucks on my way home, and I ended up being filled-up entirely!

First, I love walks. They clear my mind and soul.

Second, Christmas is in full force with the lights and decorations up, with Christmas carols even playing! Love πŸ’«

And from there my day was amazing! Coincidence πŸ€”

πŸŽ„ My tire got fixed for free! There was a nail in it and they just fixed it for me. What the…

πŸŽ„ Several past clients booked readings with me – this truly lights up my soul ❀️

πŸŽ„ I’m running some ads and taking a course, and I got stuck. Well the coordinator jumped in and did it ALL for me. Be still my heart!

πŸŽ„ One of my featured coaches signed-up her first long term client! Seeing my coaches succeed has been a vision for yrs πŸ’•

πŸŽ„ Our financing went through for a new property we’re investing in! πŸ€—

Guys! This isn’t a coincidence! It’s all because I was so empowered with finally taking my car in! And that set the WHOLE tone or the day.Tackling these little tolerations we put up with goes a long way. πŸ‘Š

And it’s also the nature of the beast. When we take the time to do things for ourselves, the universe matches our self-love with more to love πŸ’•

So what do you need to start tackling this weekend! Gert er’ done! You’ll feel great I promise!

Much Love,

You know you have all the answers inside you right?!

This one hits home for me.

I spent years searching for the answers outside of myself and looking for reassurance from others.

Co-dependency at it’s finest.

But what I learned from all of thisΒ seekingΒ is that we already HAVE the answers inside of ourselves.

We have this thing called an inner guidance system.

Which is really our INTUITION.

This IS the connection to the universe, to the divine. An all knowing guidance system there to show us the soul-utions to creating our biggest dreams.

To creating and manifesting peace, love and joy at the highest level.

We just forget (or don’t realize) we have access to it.

And it’s not that courses, or books, or trainings, or mentors aren’t helpful or needed, it’s that your inner guidance systemΒ willΒ direct you to what will help you grow, evolve and heal the most. It’s empowered decision making.

As opposed to coming from a place of lack and not good enough, and “needing” it to fix you. This is disempowered decision making.

In our podcast this week – which is about all things A Course in Miracles – I share what my divine guidance showed me, in relation to helping me navigate a difficult situation.

“Reverse & Ready” (any former lifeguards here?) was the guidance when I thought it would be “Love & Light.”

We think we know all of the answers but we don’t.

And why not tune into something all-knowing and all-loving, that always has our best interests at heart, and those of others.

THIS is where it’s at.

​Play our latest episodeΒ while you’re out for a walk this weekend or doing things around the house.

We promise to make it worth your while ❀️

What is your Super Power?

Your strongest asset might come as a surprise to you.

Imagine being free of defenses? Aka getting defensive, the need to defend, etc.

When we operate from that place we are on the defensive. Going down the “never enoughness” path.

Not feeling enough deep down, and therefore getting triggered, and feeling the need to defend instead.

But you are enough.

More than enough.

Just as you are.

Regardless of where you are in your business, where you went to school, and where you live.

Your true self is more than enough.

So let’s step into her for a minute, where she’s enough for herself, her kids, and her community.

Watch what happens in your external world (and results), when you have this internal shift.

Much love to you and tune in here for our latest podcast episode on this beauty of a super power!

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating this week too! We are looking forward to a low key holiday with friends this year. ❀

Have a great weekend!
