Confessions of an Alchemist ~ What I REALLY Do

LoveHello Beautiful,

Here are confessions of an alchemist….PLUS, I have placed a gift here for you.  It is waiting at the bottom of this love letter…

A gifted woman asked me a powerful question this week:

What’s the difference between your life coaching and mental health counseling? And I responded with the standard (BORING) party lines: counseling tends to be more about healing the past while coaching is focused on present choices and strategies to create positive change.

Except that I do both. I have the equivalent of a giant rolling Craftsman toolkit chock-full of techniques to generate alchemy.

So I dove deeper. Uncomfortably deep, in fact.

An Authentic Call From My Alchemical Heart To Yours

Luxury sedan driving fast.I was late. I ushered my last client out the door, hopped in my van and flew the mile and a half up our dirt road. I was driving more than a little too fast, weaving between resident “road cows” (compliments of free range cattle country).

My body said “slow down.”

I took my foot off the gas…a little….although not enough to honor my inner wisdom.

I did make it.  I met the bus just in time, didn’t crash into any livestock and I picked up my kids, so it’s all good, right?

This all sounded logical inside my head…and didn’t reassure my heart one iota.

When we arrived home, my inner voice said “go to your sanctuary.”

It was her “do or die” moment.

She knew it was time to break through the glass ceiling and bring it to the world. Struggling with confidence issues before a call to land the biggest client of her life, she spilled over with desperate frustration.

She’d done all the right things as a solopreneur building her business from the ground up. She knew she could offer top-notch service, but she’d begun freezing during sales calls.

As we explored the fabric of these calls, it became painfully clear that she was not being present with the prospective clients and helping them tap into the feeling of success she could help them achieve.

How COULD she when the picture she made in her head was of getting to rock bottom, leading her into self-doubt, fear and financial insecurity?

I bet you can relate. We’ve all had moments when there was a huge discrepancy between what we knew we could do and what our limiting beliefs threw into our path.

There are a million reasons why these moments arise, but there is only ONE practical action step that always makes it better, and that’s what I’m about to share with you here.

Supermoons, total solar eclipses and equinoxes, Oh My!

When? NOW. This is it! A day I look forward to all year. Spring equinox is upon us, this beautiful time of beginning and renewal when the Earth’s axis becomes perpendicular to the sun’s rays — cresting with a perfect balance of day and night until it begins tipping over, making the days longer in the northern hemisphere.

Longer days.

Bring on the sun!http://thealchemistsheart.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/solar-eclipses-120509c-02.jpg
