Introduction:
Welcome to the Swipe Right Effect blog! I'm CK Collins, also known as Kelly, and today we have an incredible guest, Allison Morgan, the founder and CEO of Sensational Kids. She's a pediatric occupational therapist, author, international public speaker, and educational trainer. Allison is on a mission to empower youth and the adults who care for them by providing essential skills such as self-awareness, emotional management, compassion, and resilience. In this blog post, we'll explore Allison's transformative work and her upcoming involvement in the Momentum Effect retreat.
Allison's Journey:
Allison's journey into the world of mindfulness and yoga began in 2007 when she integrated these practices into her therapy work. She quickly realized the immense potential they held for creating positive change in both children and adults. These practices helped individuals manage stress, overcome trauma, and foster emotional well-being. Her personal transformation and the profound impact on her clients set her on a path to share these tools with a broader audience.
The Momentum Effect Retreat:
Allison's expertise in mindfulness and emotional well-being has led her to become a trainer and contributor for the Momentum Effect retreat, happening from November 2nd to 5th in Rhode Island. This retreat is an opportunity for women to come together in person, connect deeply, and embark on a journey of self-discovery. The event promises a supportive community where participants can explore their commonalities, celebrate differences, and share their unique gifts.
The Power of Emotion:
During the podcast interview, Allison emphasized the importance of understanding our emotions and how they affect our lives. She introduced the concept that "emotion is energy in motion." Each emotion carries a distinct energy, and by learning how to work with this energy, individuals can enhance their emotional well-being.
Mindfulness and Motion:
Allison believes in the power of using our bodies to change our minds. By incorporating simple practices into our daily routines, we can shift our emotional states. These practices include shaking out tension, dancing to break out of familiar patterns, and using pressure points on our bodies to release emotional energy.
The Art of Journaling:
Journaling serves as a powerful tool to complement mindfulness and motion. It allows individuals to express their deepest desires, fears, and aspirations. Allison recommends envisioning your "amazing me" and jotting down your thoughts. Journaling helps you create a contract with your future self, making your intentions tangible and grounding them in reality.
What Feeds Allison's Soul:
As we wrapped up the conversation, we asked Allison what feeds her soul. She shared two key aspects:
Morning Ritual: Allison finds solace and inspiration in her morning alone time, where she engages in mindfulness practices, sips coffee, and journals. This daily ritual sets her intentions and prepares her for the day ahead.Transformative Work: The real source of fulfillment for Allison is witnessing the transformation in people she trains and teaches. Seeing individuals shift from stress and tension to a state of softness and self-realization brings her immense joy. Helping others tap into their inner potential is a deeply rewarding experience.Conclusion:
Allison Morgan's journey and expertise in mindfulness, motion, and emotional well-being are a testament to the profound impact these practices can have on our lives. Her involvement in the Momentum Effect retreat offers a unique opportunity for individuals to embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery and personal growth. By embracing mindfulness, motion, and journaling, we can all unlock our inner Zen and create positive changes in our lives.
