How To Honor Your Deepest Truth Now

I know you bring your heart and soul forward to honor other worthy people, but do you do this for yourself? It’s time to learn the essential elements you need to honor your deepest truth and connect with your inner alchemist as we explore the letter “H” in our A to Z alchemy series.

The first and most important tool is honesty. Hiding from or ignoring the way you feel won’t protect you. It can prevent you from gathering the help and information you need to feel as healthy and whole as possible.

Bringing your awareness to what you are dealing with and how you feel from the inside out is incredibly empowering. Give yourself total permission to actually know how you feel.

Get In Touch With The Genius Of Being Genuine

You embody genuine genius. 

Yes, you. 

Need proof?

Check out this definition from Mirriam-Webster: a peculiar, distinctive or identifying character of spirit; a personification or embodiment, especially of a quality or condition. 

That’s right.  It doesn’t necessarily mean you are overflowing with intellectual capacity – although that may absolutely be the case.

As we explore the letter “G” in our A to Z alchemy series, I want you breathe this in:

How many times have you hidden your peculiar, distinctive or identifying character of spirit?

Thousands?  More?

I know I have.  

It comes with the territory.

This is the day it stops.

Do You Know The Fantastic Secret To Feeling A Happy Flow?

flow-164x250Ready to learn the key to fundamentally enhancing your quality of life?  The ultimate positive psychology resource?

It’s my beauty secret. 

Flow. 

The fabulous state of flow is freaking AMAZING.

Haven’t had the pleasure yet?

Join in our exploration of A to Z alchemy with the concept of flow as a state of consciousness in which we are completely absorbed in an activity, particularly one that uses our creative capacity.

Remember a moment in your life when you were fully engaged in something you loved, when self-consciousness disappeared, you felt strong, alert, capable and you lost track of time.

In that moment, you were in a state of flow, deeply connected to your inner alchemist. 

It is my passion to share alchemy for adventurers in life, so I’m letting you in on the surprising secret:

This optimal experience does NOT occur during relaxing, receptive, passive times.  The happiness of flow is not something that happens to us, it is alchemy we can actively court & encourage to enter into our lives!

The Most Important Key To Increasing Excellence in Empathy

Old letter envelope with wax seal isolated on white

Empathy. You know it when you feel it.  The moment another soul connects with you and you KNOW that you are seen, heard and witnessed in all your imperfect humanity.

You are recognized and accepted just as you are without any rankling ounce of pity.

I am not a fan of pity. Don’t want it, don’t give it.

But empathy…..well, empathy is MAGIC.

One of the surest balms for the soul we ever experience.

It is the understanding and ability to share the feelings of another.

I bet you know people who try to fake this, but you have built in radar, don’t you?

As a natural empath and alchemist, I’m here to tell you the single biggest key to increasing excellence in empathy as we explore the letter “E” in A to Z alchemy.

Discover Dynamic Dance Benefits To Energize Your Life

It’s time to discover dynamic dance benefits to energize your life!

Did you know dance is natural therapy for gathering strength, increasing self-confidence, opening up your capacity for healthy self-expression and bringing greater enjoyment into all areas of your life? It’s true! It’s a brilliant choice for connecting with your inner alchemist.

Powerful mind-body dance benefits are too great to limit to official dance classes.  Join in our exploration of the letter “D” in our A to Z alchemy series as I share alchemy for adventurers in life and note that dance is designed to enjoy anywhere, anytime.

I’m not afraid to break out dancing in my office during sessions.  A little jig of happiness often bursts forth in spontaneous honoring of a client’s WIN.  (Have I mentioned how much I love your wins?)  Sometimes we’ll even blast the music and groove for a few minutes.  Everyone else in the building, including my husband, quietly and  professionally providing chiropractic care, wonder what the heck is going on…. and, more importantly, WHY ARE THEY MISSING THE PARTY?!

Do You Know This Breakthrough Component of Successful Communication?

Empty letter paper with goose quill and inkpot on wooden table, top viewYou already know the basics of communicating with others. It’s relatively easy.

I’ll bet an organic dark chocolate truffle that you work to listen to the other person, pay attention to your nonverbal communication, use “I” statements to take responsibility for your own feelings instead of blaming others when tensions are high, and create environments that help everyone feel safe.

But you may not know the secret key to successful communication, because it’s not one many people teach…or model.  As part of my A to Z Alchemy exploration, I’m about to change that.
