I cried. Just saying.

“Self esteem is keeping the promises that you make
to yourself.…

~ Eric Thomas


I realized after watching Matthew McConaughey’s talk this week about the place where he grew up (Uvalde, Texas), that I had still been processing the shooting.

This is not an email about guns, nor is it a political one either.

This is an email about what the world would be like if we kept the conscious and unconscious promises we make to ourselves. Sometimes those promises, if we were to have enough esteem for ourselves and the world around us, would include talking about hard topics.

Sometimes it would even include getting in front of hundreds of millions of people when you didn’t have to.

Maybe you would stand up for an inequity.

Maybe you would tell the truth to your spouse.

Maybe you would eat organic.

Maybe you would make friends with some neighbours.

Maybe you would join a movement that has been calling to you and speaks to your heart.

Can you see how those, with esteem for themselves, must also have esteem for their communities and the world around them?

I’ll give my self-esteem a 7.5, based on the definition in Eric Thomas’s quote:

“Self esteem is keeping the promises that you make to yourself.…”

On some subjects, I’m probably a 9.5 (there’s always room to grow), and on some subjects I think I’m a 4.5 and getting better (because I think I might have been a 1 at some point on the subject of my body).

One thing that I will reiterate that Matthew said, that is also a truth for me:

“We are not as divided as “news, media, social media, insecure people who are in fear” tell us we are.“ That is also my experience.

You are either creating the future you want to live in with your words and actions, or you are Activating a past through words and actions inspired by fear. One thing I know for sure, is that I do not want to be a part of this world standing still as it is.

What will you do to get people thinking?
Who can you thank today?
What can you do to make one person’s life better?
Or, maybe there’s a politician you need to write a letter to?

Eric Thomas and I also have an idea in common:

If you are standing still, you are still going backwards, because every thing/project/aspect of this world is rotating anew.

Just thought I’d shake your tree a little.

With love,
Jennifer

P.S. WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR ENERGY, MENTAL CLARITY AND BIOLOGICAL AGE OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS, AND HOW CAN WE HEAL?

I asked myself two years ago: How can I have my body thrive through times of great change? And I’ve been following those guidelines and sharing them with our clients. However, I realized that so many people are feeling stressed, inflamed, menopausal, and tired. You can heal your adrenals and regain mental clarity. Anyone can. I am going to share the important skills, protocol and so much more. Please join us on June 27th for one of the most important health workshops I’ve ever done. Tell a friend. Check it out and save your seat today!

(We will also be including a Health Assessment called WISE™ Analysis for every participant: Value $300.00)

BAM! Yep, this happened.

BAM! Yep, this happened.

I had a client ask me last night, “When are all these challenges and triggers going to end so we can get back to normal?”. Newsflash. This is our new normal. So much change is being catalyzed these days, and if you get into emergency mode, it is easy to want to protect yourself and others, to hide, to “carry” your family, or those you love or even yourself.

Here’s something to consider this morning: Just because you’re there for others, doesn’t mean you are necessarily helping them. It depends on whether you’re giving from your overflow and your inspiration, or you are “carrying” them. It may even be that you’re not authentically trying to help them; maybe, just maybe, you’re trying to make your own self feel better because you don’t like the way they’re being or behaving.

I have most certainly carried people I care about at some point in my life. It’s as though I thought that I had the power to make someone else happy. It is so clear to me at this point that no one can make anyone else happy. In fact, doing that can leave the other person(s) powerless to do it for themselves.

Are you leaving space for the miraculous?

Are you leaving space for the miraculous?

I’m not sure if anyone ever truly gets that I am definitely in the programs that I teach, even though I am facilitating. And I am! Half the things that get discussed are perfectly suited for helping me find more freedom, meaning, and flow, too. Saturday’s Get Out of Your Own Way™ program was no exception.

Sunday I woke up with my head stuffy, feeling heated, and an achy body. Uh oh. Adam just had the c-flu; maybe I have it, too?

My word for the year, and…

My word for the year, and…

I was just wondering why Spaciousness was my word this year.

We are now almost half way through the year (can you believe it?) and so much is up for renewal!

Take my body for instance. I notice immediately when it is in Overwhelm, because my cravings go up, neck tension starts, I get a little reactive, and my creativity goes out the window. If I partake in Overwhelm long enough, I even gain weight… ugh. My body is a perfect barometer of where I am.

These five symptoms are representative of about 15 other symptoms of adrenal fatigue, and even a sluggish thyroid. At first when I feel the symptoms, I hear myself saying, “Really?” Then I realize and remember that I have a deep knowing of how to bring myself back to the state of energized inspiration.
