    Impact of Fear Introduction

    Top 10 Life Coaches To Watch as Named by New York Weekly

    Hello Beautiful Soul!

    In the most exciting news, I’ve been named one of the top 10 life coaches to watch out for in 2021 by New York Weekly. So so exciting. Thank you for all the love over on my Instagram my heart and soul are overwhelmed and overjoyed with all the celebrations. It means the world to me.

    This week I’ve been reflecting on fear which is what today’s episode is all about.

    Fear supposedly protects you and keeps you alive. 

    Which is does to a degree but really it keeps you from being truly alive.

    It is keeping you stuck, small and scared.

    Fear stops you from living life fully

    Fear keeps you from doing all the things.

    Falling in love.

    Breaking up.

    Starting your own business.

    Quitting your job.

    Pursuing your dream career.

    Being who you really are.

    Speaking up.

    Showing your face.

    Changing your life.

    It’s keeping you from life!

    Fear paralyses you and keeps you stuck

    When fear paralyses you – you aren’t even getting a chance to be successful, to be truly happy because you’re stopping in your tracks before you can even start!

    It’s very much the quote that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

    It’s ironic that fear makes us do a lot of things but it also keeps us from doing a lot of things.

    Fear is a cycle.

    How to break the cycle of fear

    How do you break it?

    It’s not that you have to push, make or force yourself to not be fearful.

    To feel scared is natural – fearful – it has the energy of mental stories behind it, conditioning, lack.

    My approach and what I talk about with my clients is to feel the edges of the fear.

    How does it feel in your body?

    Does it weigh heavily?

    Is it in your stomach?

    To feel it deeply and allow yourself the natural process of feeling your emotions.

    To meet that edge and rise above the fear.

    The meanings of fear spiritually

    Fear has two meanings.

    Forget everything and run or face everything and rise.

    The choice is yours.

    Use your body to overcome fear not your mind

    And really when you embody it, you realise that it isn’t thinking or your mind that will help you overcome fear.

    It’s feeling deeply into your body and taking inspired action accordingly.

    Do the damn thing that edges you out of your comfort zone.

    Invest in yourself.

    Quit the job.

    Start again.

    Focus on who you want to be and what you want to achieve not on your fears. 

    The body is so vital to the experience of fear because it’s experienced in our mind but physically felt in our body through a strong reaction or response.

    What happens to the brain and body when we experience fear

    The amygdala is a small almond shaped organ in the middle of your brain that is triggered when you experience fear which in turn releases stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline – the fight or flight response.

    Your pupils dilate. 

    Your blood pressure increases, your heart starts racing faster and faster.

    Your body is literally going into evolutionary mode, sharpening its senses which is to brace itself for life – to fight for survival or flee for survival.

    I’ve mentioned this several times across the podcast that whilst humans have evolved quickly and rapidly the brain hasn’t quite caught up.

    The fight or flight evolutionary response

    This fight or flight response happens when you’re not even in physical danger as our ancestors were from hungry animals or raging weather conditions.

    It could be you being nervous about a big presentation or work. 

    Perhaps it’s running into an ex.

    Maybe it’s about what your friends think about you.

    This response is triggered and guess what?

    The brain cannot distinguish between reality and imagination so when you think of a memory when you were fearful it will and can feel so real in the body.

    An exercise to demonstrate the power of your mind and brain on fear

    Try it.

    Recall a time you were really scared in your life like a movie, see the visuals and feel it in your body. You can literally cause the stress response in the body.

    That is why my coaching is rooted in energetics and being in the body because the mind can do all sorts of lies and trickery such as fear.

    As I’ve even posted about on Instagram, your brain is wired for survival not happiness. 

    Fear and regret

    The thing is yes you can run from fear but often life will repeat itself and put you in situations until move through that fear to learn, grow, evolve and expand. 

    Remember this when it comes to fear, it is temporary.

    Regret is a strong and powerful emotion – we live one life. What are you going to do in this lifetime.

    Who are you going to be?

    Wake up and realise every day you are dying, so make the most of every moment.

    Don’t lead with fear because that energy is so vastly different to the power of leading with love and intention. 

    Helpful codes and quotes on fear

    I love quotes, always have and always will. 

    I want to share some codes on fear through quotes to help you evolve and grow to your next level.

    “Faith and fear both demand you believe in something you cannot see. You choose!”

    Bob Proctor

    “Never trust your fears, they don’t know your strength”

    Anthea Singh

    “Courage is the resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear”

    Mark Twain

    “The fears we don’t face become our limits”

    Robin Sharma

    The Bible and Fear

    It’s interesting too that the Bible, a very ancient text says ‘fear not,’ ‘don’t worry’ and ‘be anxious for nothing’ over 300 times.

    Fear is a part of the human experience and it is one of our greatest teachers when we let it go, when we move through it.

    Instead of falling to fear, how can you rise in fear?

    Common fears a life coach sees

    Many of my clients experience fears that are not unfounded.

    It feels so real in their minds.

    The two most commons ones are fear of showing up and being seen and a fear that they’ll never be in a relationship again.

    Together we move past this by identifying and bringing perspective to these fears and briefly visiting why these fears exist in their mind.

    A life coach's hot tip on fear and growth

    I’ll give you a huge hint as a life coach, if you want to quickly grow – do the things you’re scared of.

    In your work, you’ll encounter the fears, work up to move past them and grow.

    Those who face fear head on and move through it, grow in quantum leaps.

  • You have to start thinking of yourself as the main character

    Are you living life or is your mind in the drivers seat?

    Life is so precious, why spend moments at war with yourself?

    Separate yourself from your mind.

    Free yourself from your mind.

    Become the one who uses their mind not the other way around.

    How to start being the main character?

    So often we are longing for the past or dreaming ahead of the future that we forget to be here right now.

    The gift of life and this present moment.

    Don’t let life slip by you whilst you weren’t here. Now. Fully living it.

    Watch your thoughts.

    Let go and just be 🦋

  • You have to remember that time is a gift

    A reminder for LIFE. The most precious thing that is borrowed to you is TIME.

    No matter how rich you are.

    No matter how successful you are.

    No matter how good of a person you are.

    No matter how hard you work.

    No matter how much you donate to charity.

    No matter how much you beg.

    No matter what… YOU CANNOT BUY MORE TIME.

    Your time and energy are your most precious currencies 🧡

    Money? That comes and goes.

    But time does not.

    Make the most of it.

    I learnt the hardest way after my dad passed away at 19.

    I hope you don’t have to experience grief, loss, death and destruction to understand how precious life is.

    And if you have?

    How beautiful that we get to live, in spirit and the full love of the ones we’ve lost.

    They’re physically gone but always here in our hearts and energy field in their eternal form of the soul.

    I wish for you so much joy, magic and happiness beautiful soul.

  • Space enables you to grow and receive

    If you don’t make S P A C E in your life, how are you going to grow? 🌱 how are you going to receive more?

    What if the space is crowded by heavy energy, stuck energy?

    I’m talking physically.

    Everything around you takes up space and energy from forks in your kitchen drawer to pieces of clothing, socks, shoes…

    What about the people you surround yourself with?

    Your environment?

    What about mental space.

    Is there space in your thoughts for downloads to arise? Insights to come the surface? Awareness? 💡

    Or is the past cluttering your presence here right now.

    Hoarding in every crevice of your mind.

    Draining and leaking your power and energy.

    Or are you stuck in a whirlpool of endless thoughts going back and forth, back and forth…

    Let

    There

    Be

  • For a seed to achieve its greatest expression

    “For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.” - Cynthia Occelli

    Growth isn’t in perfection and success. Want to know what actual growth is?

    MESS.

    DESTRUCTION.

    ROYALLY FUCKING IT ALL UP.

    Mistakes.

    Failing.

    Doing something hundreds of times.

    Becoming completely undone and hitting rock damn bottom.

    In all of this glorious blaze is UNDOING. UNBECOMING.

    Complete change.

    Pushing outside your comfort zones.

    Cracking under pressure.

    And with that?

    Absolute R E B I R T H ⚡️⚡️⚡️

    Rising from the ashes – stronger, wiser and more resilient than ever.

    So don’t be afraid to completely fuck it all up.

    Don’t be afraid to completely change and do a 360 degrees.

    All of this is beautiful, messy GROWTH 🌱

    Keep going beautiful soul, you are on the right path and where you are meant to be.

  • You are never tested by the universe, only strengthened

    What you feel is a test from the universe isn’t really – want to know why? 👇🏾✨

    The universe isn’t testing you, the universe is responding to you.

    You are a vibrational match to your reality – in fact you have so much power in your

     P E R C E P T I O N.

    We are the creators of reality.

    Your mind labels a moment as “good” or “bad” and the in between.

    Just because the universe isn’t testing you it doesn’t mean that life will be easy.

    And that’s okay… 🧡

    Because what would life be if it was easy?

    Unlimited money? You got it.

    Instant soul mate? You got it.

    Top of the career ladder? You got it.

    Possibility Introduction

    Hello beautiful souls!

    I hope you had a wonderful Easter break – goodness I am so tired but I had the best weekend.

    The sun was shining. I got to see and catch up with a lot of friends, soak in the sunshine, ocean swims, fairy floss sunsets it was so beautiful.

    Unexpectedly I had a visit from a friend Lisa who I met in my coaches current program Art of Alignment and oh my goodness it was a pleasure to meet Lisa in person and she’s really inspired this podcast episode which is all about possibility.

    Your mind and possibility

    Juicy juicy possibility!!!

    I love possibility.

    There is infinite possibility in this world, in this universe yet our mind likes to keep us stuck, scared and small.

    Your mind is designed to help you survive, not to be happy.

    Yes, mind freaking blown.

    Your mind is designed to help you survive, not to be happy.

    I’ll let that sink in.

    Your mind wants to protect you so that you don’t take risks but it keeps you small.

    Small, scared and stuck

    Where are you currently feeling stuck, small and scared in your life?

    Where can you let in space, for expansion, for growth?

    This lifetime is like being a kid in the candy store.

    So many different possibilities. Flavours, types, colours.

    Where do you have blinders on in your life that you cant see all the possibilities.

    Can you ask yourself where you can let in more? 

    To awaken to more options, ways of doing things.

    Moving with the universe and possibility

    The universe is always supporting you and expanding you.

    Knowing this, how do you move in the world? How do you feel? How do you act?

    I get so excited thinking about possibilities and my life. My clients and their possibility!

    Like oooooh what if this happens or ooooh it didn’t happen but maybe life has something even better in stall for me, for my clients.

    Something more juicy. More expansive. More fun.

    So really I’m telling you, the world is your oyster.

    The world is your oyster

    The world is always giving you signals, invitations.

    The thing is are you open?

    Are you open to receiving the signs, the invitations, the manifestations?

    Upcoming manifestation masterclass
