Oh Wise One!
As a coach, I work with the premise that folks have a lot of the best answers for themselves within.
Over my eight years of coaching, I’ve seen countless times how if I just help someone move beneath the noise and limiting beliefs, they can access a deep wisdom that they never knew possible…The wisdom that comes from connecting to your true yearnings, values, feelings, and potential coupled with touching into your boundless universal nature.
Of course, in this relentless intellect-driven world, this can be a tall order. People are so busy doggy-paddling like mad on the surface of life, they have completely lost touch with that deep well of wisdom within.
Luckily, regular meditative practices can help you begin distinguishing between your inner wisdom speaking and your stomach growling.
There’s a particular exercise I want to share with you that I’ve found powerful personally and for my coachees in accessing everyday wisdom. I call it the “soul dialogue”…
It starts with creating a still and quiet space wherever you are, even if it’s on a bus or in the middle of an office. Write at the top of a page a question you’re wondering about or a challenge that’s weighing on you, like: “Should I take on this new project?”, “I feel so paralyzed”, or “How can I forgive her?”
Then, close your eyes, take some deep breaths, and allow yourself to sink deeply into yourself. Think about dropping into your soul/center/consciousness – that portal that connects you to everybody and everything. Have your “soul” write in response to your challenge or wonderings.
Just allow a stream of consciousness to happen and try not to let your head get in the way. This deeper consciousness may write back with some very specific ideas and instructions or with more general words of comfort, nourishment, or encouragement. The words may not even directly respond to your original question or statement, but chances are it will contain the energy that you most need right now.
Write for about 5 minutes and see what comes up. Even if you’re skeptical, give it a try… You might be quite surprised to see what’s in that well. I never cease to be amazed by what comes up for people in this exploration.
If you’d like some extra guidance, LISTEN HERE and I’ll take you through the soul dialogue exercise in five minutes.
I’d love to hear what your experience with this tool is. Hit reply and let me know how it goes!

LIFE REBOOT PROGRAM
You might have tried various courses, books, workshops, therapies, etc. in the past to breakthrough to the next level of your life, but things just didn’t stick. Well, this soulful, practical, and sometimes rowdy body/mind/spirit adventure that uses DAILY work (powerful audio recordings, exercises, & email check-ins) to create shifts on a tangible real-life level, and combines that daily work with intimate and exhilarating weekly workshops (10 people maximum). The result is deep, tangible, and lasting changes. Think of this as your own 7-week personal revolution!
Get ready to:
- Take on that big dream you’ve been feeling stuck around
- Stop living on auto-pilot and WAKE UP
- Come home to your body and optimize your health and fitness
- Bust through stress and anxiety and find a deep sense of peace and contentment
- Build a customized life game-plan for your most spectacular future
- Laugh more: lighten up and invite in more joy, fun and creativity
- Free yourself from self-imposed limits & unleash your full power
- Invite more love into your life & cultivate deeper, more satisfying relationships
- Uncover who you truly are
- Take specific action to help heal the world
- Love your life
With just the right mix of loving support and kick-ass motivation, I personally guide you through every step of this process to clear out the crap and jump-start your life. The program groups are limited to 10 people, so you receive plenty of individual attention. We do deep, profound work in the Life Reboot Program, but we also have a gut-busting good time doing it. There will be fascinating concepts to explore, but a big emphasis will also be put on life strategizing and practical game-plans. If you’re willing to come to the program with a sense of curiosity and you do the work, your life will change…I’ve seen it happen hundreds of times before.
