5 Stages of Body Love

We can talk about self-care and self-love all day long. And yes, those things are so so important. But what about love for our bodies? Body love is so related to, yet so very distant from self-love. Self-love seems fun and exciting; treat yourself to something nice, take a bubble bath, have your nails done, go to yoga, say no to more things that you don’t want to do. Honestly though, have you even thought about body love as being a part of self-love? Or, does you kind of cringe when I say the words body and love together? I …

I Knew What I Wanted This Whole Time, I Just Didn’t Realize It.

I can’t believe it. I knew what I wanted this whole time, I just didn’t realize it. Jose and I are moving into a new home. Naturally, as we go through closets and tucked away boxes, we are coming across a lot of items we forgot we had and memories long forgotten. For me, this showed up in the form of my old journals. Sadly, I remember a few years ago tearing out several pages and shredding them, embarrassed and honestly mortified by the thought of anyone ever finding and reading them. But there were still a lot of pages …

What is Self-Empathy and How to Use it as Your Superpower.

Spoken word is often difficult for me. I gravitate towards writing, where I have more time to articulate my message. Many of you reading this can probably relate to this. We have so much empathy for others. There are so many feelings all at once and it can be hard to process. But that means, there are so many feelings for other people that we don’t ever stop to practice our own self-empathy. In fact, many of you are probably wondering, “what is self-empathy?” Before we get into that, let’s chat a bit more about empathy. I am sure you …

Body Connection Coaching

Hey there! I am in the middle of updating this website….learning so much in the process! While I work on content and setting up the home page, I did want to drop in here and give a little update. You all might be wondering what the heck Body Connection Coaching is! I don’t blame you! Honestly, it is as simple as it sounds. Re-connecting back to your body!

Embodied

Beginners Tips To Embodiment.

Embodiment, a tangible or visible form of an idea, quality, or feeling. Or as I briefly described in my last post, it is having full access to your body. Our bodies know what to do. They know what they want. They have the answers. We are just so crappy at tuning into them. Embodiment is feeling at home in your body. Safe, nurtured, loved, encouraged, validated, and so much more. And….. I have taught you the three pillars of connection. But those pillars don’t teach you how to get into your body. or how to get into an embodied state. …

Feeling Dirty About My Coaching Secret.

Most of you know by now that I am in a 10 month coaching program through Hungry For Happiness. But to those that don’t read my blog, they probably don’t know this about me. And what no body knows (including myself at first), is that this is SO MUCH MORE than a coaching program. When I tell people that I am in a coaching program I almost feel sort of “dirty” saying that. At first, I was under the impression that anyone could call themselves a coach without any training. It felt like that is what people said when they …

Trust

Do You Trust Yourself?

I believe we all go through life trying to figure out who to trust and not trust. We evaluate how someone makes us feel, their actions towards us and others, and how they treat the world. Sometimes we even experience our intuition or a gut feeling that someone just cannot be trusted. Or the opposite can happen… We may meet someone who instantly feels like family. But, have you ever stopped to think, “do I even trust myself?” As I was working through the first 8 weeks of my Hunger for Happiness Certification, I was rolling along all fine and …

Inner Child

Tired of Destructive Behaviors? Time to tap into the needs of our inner child.

Last week we learned about the 3 Pillars of Connection.  Mind Emotions Body These three pillars exist in everything that we do. The key is to create a beautiful connection, awareness, and understanding of these three pillars. Only then you can start to feel into when is your mind talking, when are your emotions taking over, and when are you actually fully in tune with your body. Review that post as much as needed, go back to it, ask me questions, seek out other resources if needed. But today we are diving into our inner children. I started doing this …

Your Body Has All The Answers- How To Safely Tap Into Your Body.

Are you worried or scared 99% of the time? Do you second guess EVERY single thing you do? Perhaps you identify as an anxious, stressed-out, and amped up person.

Are You Hungry For Happiness? Follow Me On My New Journey

If you have read my blog from the beginning, you already know that I did something terrifying last year. Something that made me feel so exposed.

It introduced me to so many amazing women and lead me down a path of even more healing and hunger for happiness. When was the last time you did something terrifying?
