There will be a choice few who sneak in there and trigger you, and you will be tempted to respond as the person you used to be: the people pleaser with very soft boundaries who enabled bad behavior, and accepted relationship dynamics that did not serve. โฃ

Everything we experience in life is something to teach us. Everything. And itโ€™s the worst stuff that usually offers – sometimes painfully – the best lessons.

I use the phrase “emotional alchemy” a lot to describe not only the work I do with clients (coaching and even audiences I speak to), but also to describe my outlook on the experiences that have most informed my life.ย My dad gave me a copy of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho in my late teens, and it remains my favorite book. Alchemy is the process of transforming something dark and heavy (like lead, base metals) into something valuable, wonderful, and life-prolonging (like gold).

โ€œEmotional Alchemyโ€ refers to what this emotional process can look and feel like in our lives: how we take the dark, heavy stuff that *could* stay dark and heavy, and weigh us down….and turn it into something f***ing beautiful. Itโ€™s not necessarily an easy process, but definitely gets easiER, as you learn to make sense of things faster, take them less personally, and make them your own instead of being OWNED by them.

Getting this kind of emotional freedom allows you to get clarity in what you want, confidence in who you are, and the courage to stay true to both…which is EXACTLY what you need to thrive in your business, relationships, and family or personal life. I go into detail onย #emotionalalchemyย on Ep 5 of my podcast, โ€œTo Call Myself Beloved;” this is ALL connected, and when you heal one thing, I promise that it ripples out to ALL of the other things. ๐Ÿ–ค

I would love to help you kick start this process, and teach you the skills to do this for yourself. Email me to book a quick intro call to chat.
