    EPISODE 1704: How To Heal Grief

    After going and growing through years of grief, I’ve discovered this about it…
    Kim McMillen said, “When I loved myself enough I could remember, during times of confusion, struggle, or grief, that these too are part of me and deserve my love.”
    It's time to heal yourself well.
    AND...
    H.E.A.L. for yourself...
    Hope.
    Energy.
    Awareness.
    Love.
    Yes, you must feel it to heal it.

    EPISODE 1703: The #1 Key To Forgiveness

    EPISODE 1703: The #1 Key To Forgiveness

    Holding “unforgiveness” in your heart is one of the most devastating things you can do to yourself. Today I show you how to make forgiveness become irrelevant…
    Kim McMillen discovered, “When I loved myself enough forgiving others became irrelevant.”
    This is my story...
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: 
    Write a letter to yourself that takes full responsibility of everything you’ve ever said or done that you feel bad or guilty about.
    Then write yourself a sacred letter of forgiveness. Extend it graciously and generously to others.

    EPISODE 1702: How To Answer The Call In Your Life…

    EPISODE 1702: How To Answer The Call In Your Life…

    What’s your call? You may be thinking, I don’t know. So today I’m going to help you get the answer you’ve been looking for…
    Kim McMillen said, “When I loved myself enough I quit answering the telephone when I don’t want to talk.”
    In order to answer your call you must...
    Stop answering everyone else's calls.
    Just because it rings doesn’t mean you have to answer it.
    And you must...
    Say what you want to say.
    Listen to what you're saying. Your life and your lips will leave clues about what your heart believes.
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: 
    What do you want to say?
    Write this out and pay attention to what your heart is saying...and calling to you.

    EPISODE 1701: How To Tell The TRUTH And Gain Ultra Clarity

    EPISODE 1701: How To Tell The TRUTH And Gain Ultra Clarity

    If you believe a lie, then you’re living one. I know that sounds harsh, but it’s true. Imagine if you could live in the freedom and clarity of TRUTH. Today I give you 3 KEYS to tap into your truth and become hyper focused…
    Kim McMillan learned, “When I loved myself enough I could tell the truth about my gifts and my limitations.”
    The GIFT of LIMITS…
    Let’s redefine limitations as “boundaries.”
    Then let’s define how we’d like our playground to look and feel.
    If you desire clarity, then you must tell the TRUTH…
    Key #1: Tell me your gifts
    Key #2: Tell me what you do know.
    Key #3: Tell me what you do want…
    Then let’s go deeper with DESIRE.
    The fire of desire will inspire your daily fire.
    What fires you up?

    EPISODE 1700: This Will Kill Your Joy…

    EPISODE 1700: This Will Kill Your Joy…

    If you’ve been seeking greater joy, happiness, and movement in your then this is going to speak directly to your heart and soul.
    Marie Kondo (Bestselling Author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up) recommends we make choices about our belongings based on whether or not it sparks joy.
    I love it. I agree. And I’ve practiced a very similar p hilosophy as Marie for years.
    But does YOUR LIFE spark joy?
    Do YOU spark joy?
    This is today’s million dollar question….
    DO YOU SPARK JOY?
    You are the common denominator in ALL your experiences here on planet earth.
    So imagine if you could cut to the JOY as quickly and joyfully as possible.
    Imagine if you could let go of all the "conditions" that are keeping you from experiencing joy now.
    Is it weight that you want to lose so then you’ll be happy?
    Is it a loving relationship that you desire, because then you’ll be joyful?
    Is it more money? A new business? A new boss?
    What is it for you that you feel you need to be happy?
    Now, think about it, and hold it in your consciousness.
    Feel it. I mean, really feel it.
    Take a deep breath.
    Now, carry that JOY into your day.
    YOU be the spark that gets the joy candle burning.
    Got it?
    Could it really be this easy?
    It IS, unless you do this…
    THIS ONE THING WILL KILL YOUR JOY FASTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE.
    It’s the belief that you have to do it perfectly in order to be joyful, happy, satisfied, fulfilled…
    Kim McMillan reminds us today, “When I loved myself enough I gave up perfectionism — that killer of joy."
    I couldn’t agree more.
    I spent the majority of my life living in that space.
    Until I went through one, two, then three divorces…it was obvious to me that my life wasn’t perfect, and neither was I. So I decided to give up the belief that I had to be, and I simply and profoundly committed to being fully me.
    What’s perfect anyway?
    Someone once told me that perfect is boring.
    And today you can see that it’s also a killer.
    It’s time to resurrect your joy, my dear and this is how to do that...
    J.O.Y.
    J - Just do it.
    O - Overcome by becoming.
    Y - YOU.
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: 
     Where in your life are trying to “do it” perfectly?
    Make a commitment to yourself today to begin sparking JOY in your life by letting go of anything that robs your joy —including past beliefs about what it means to be perfect.
    Joyfully and fully in JOY.

    EPISODE 1699: How To Have A Big EGO And S.O.L.

    EPISODE 1699: How To Have A Big EGO And S.O.L.

    Fear will stop you in your tracks, but what if you could make friends with fear? Here’s 3 things you can do today…
    Kim McMillen discovered, “When I loved myself enough I began to see that my ego is part of my soul. With this shift in perception it lost its stridency and paranoia, and it could do its job.”
    Rich Joshi from Power Thoughts Meditation Club wrote this, "The Ego’s role is to protect you, but it takes itself too seriously at times." (Karen England) @RishaJoshi @PowerThoughtsMeditationClub
    The next time your ego is triggered by fear, take a look at your E.G.O. by evolving and growing…
    Evolving and Growing Our E.G.O.
    YOUR E.G.O.
    Ask yourself...
    1. E: Emergency or Experience?
    2. G: Get or Receive?
    3. O: Open or Closed?
    When you do this, it will no longer be about ego, but you'll say to yourself, "IGO"... :)
    Keep growing. Keep going, my dear.
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    Where in your life do you feel as though your ego has been fighting against you?
    Take her through these 3 questions, and thank her for staying in her lane…not yours. Then release her to do what she does.
